What's happening in the neighborhood?

LibertyFest and Fireworks!

With the LibertyFest this weekend, please remind your guests that Summit Parkway will be closed at 8:00 pm Friday, so they will have to use the Beck Road entrances.  Also, please have them park on the side of the street without fire hydrants so that we can maintain a fire / emergency lane.  For details for all of the activities, performances, food and more, check out the township's LibertyFest page.

Have fun at this great event!!!

Sidewalk Repairs

From Rotondo on May 11, 2022:

"We repair any sprinklers that we damage. You can have residents call our office at 248-474-0707 to report any damaged sprinklers. Just have them leave their name, phone number, and address and we can make sure that we address it. If you have any residents that have already reached out to you please send me their information. Whenever we know we hit one when tearing out concrete our crew marks it and the sprinkler guy comes behind them and fixes it. I believe we hit 2 or 3 of them in Pheasant View and those are being fixed today. But you can have residents reach out to us with sprinkler issues or concerns."

Governing Document Amendments have been approved!

Many thanks to the hard work of our board members and to all of you that voted for our new governing documents!
Final vote counts:
Articles of Incorporation: 136 for / 13 against
Covenants and Restrictions: 132 for / 17 against

The Board of Directors is contracting with a law firm to conduct a comprehensive amendment project for our Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Covenants & Restrictions.  The goal of this process is to update very outdated documents, include association-owned mailboxes into our governing documents, and enable the board to better address landscaping and unsightly conditions in our subdivision.  The proposed revised documents and information about the upcoming meeting to discuss them can be found on the Governing Documents / Proposed Amendments page.

The goals of amending our association governing documents are to:

  • Update documents to comply with new federal and state laws and court cases.

  • Update documents to include association-provided mailboxes in our governing documents.

  • Modernize our documents to address the current ‘hot topics’ faced by modern associations.

  • Remove errors, typos, and all unnecessary developer language.

  • Improve readability with shorter paragraphs, less ‘legalese,’ more section titles and subheadings.

  • Consolidate or shorten documents, sections, and text as possible.

  • Remove all illegal (or potentially illegal) provisions.

  • Customize documents to the particular needs of our community.

  • Improve overall functionality and effectiveness of our documents.

  • Educate the membership of the purpose, content, and function of the association’s governing documents as part of the amendment process.

The cost for the complete legal review and proper filing is $8,000.  We have anticipated and included this expenditure in this year’s budget; the membership will not incur an additional expense.  We will publish and share all altered governing documents with all homeowners at least 30 days before any association vote.

 

The e-mail provides a way for you to vote on whether or not you support the board moving forward with this initiative.

To help with the voting process, please make sure we have your current email address by using the "Connect" page and / or by providing updates on the form included with your assessment invoice.

 

Here is an outline of how the amendment process would work:
