All the vehicles at 401 Pioneer Circle – Reeves/Genter are registered except for one.  No other complaints received.  A letter was sent out to them asking them to bring the vehicles into compliance.  The cars are screened from public view by Oak brush.

  1. Messages for the billings:
  • Now is the time to treat/spray/cut weeds; Thistles growing on the sewage septic tanks and leach fields need to be addressed.   *  Lot number signs available through the county
  • Beach Calendar – schedule your event ahead of time. Dogs at large need to be on a lease or kept at home.  There should be NO unlicensed drivers or unregistered vehicles on the subdivision roads.


  1. Community Service Directory – Teri Roberts and Lisa Malmood have agreed to work on putting together a directory of services that are available in the subdivision for on the web site.
  2. Shade roofs for the picnic tables at the pond. With the intense sun and heat this summer, the Board is considering some sort of shade for down at the pond.  At the Beach Party, it was suggested that the HOA put up some sort of shade (gazebo, canopy, etc.) for those using the beach area.  Concerns are esthetics, color, safety, snow load, pitch, wind stabilization, etc.  Eric is getting prices for different applications and will present them to the Board at the next meeting.  So far it looks like a minimum of $3,000/ea.
  3. New Owners – There has been one new owner since the last meeting. Longwell are the new owners of 351 Pioneer Circle.


There being no further discussion the meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm.
