A homeowner asked for it to be taken down or trimmed.† Armand will send the plat to J&L to reconfirm the price because dropping the tree on our land will be tricky given how the property lines are defined.† Linda motioned to give Armand the authority to approve up to $6,000 for tree removal; Joe seconded; Approved 7-0.†


A tree on Heversham was mentioned by a homeowner but Armand reviewed and determined it is not an issue.


Encroachments: Armand prepared letters and sent to the Board for review. Armand spoke with our insurance company to discuss some of the encroachments and our potential liability; the only concern the insurance company had was trampolines on HOA property.†

Two homes on Wheatstone have encroachments but are not part of the HOA.


All Board members signed the encroachment letters for mailing, Armand will send them out.
