5/14 irrigation

Terribly sorry about this, I turned the irrigation back on but it’s not working.

I am checking into the problem.

The “Aqua Drive” box is off (display/buttons) and I am not sure why.   We don’t mess around with this box.  

It is always on.  This box allows the setting selected by the key and the timer, which we do access, to function. 

I have a call out to Paul to get to the bottom of this.

Again sorry for the inconvenience folks as I am going through this crazy with you.

From Paul at Lighthouse….
Good morning, just back in town this morning, I have been on the phone with PLS and have nailed down a new start date  Tuesday May 10, 2022. I have been reviewing with them a plan of production to include the mix/mill , grading and paving of sections to minimize the time of exposed compacted material to afternoon rains. I hope to have a revised schedule and timelines late this afternoon or tomorrow to post to the website and mail to owners. Once I have the schedule I will also contact engineering and vendors. Please distribute to the Board. Thank you.

Paving Project Appeal Letter – January 27, 2022


Hello Neighbor,

I want to ask your household’s commitment to support the (1) $388,192 paving project which will require a (2) $250 per home assessment.    Both votes will require a 2/3s majority vote either in person or by proxy at our next HOA meeting scheduled for February 10th, 2022. 

As you can see, our roads not only look terrible, bringing down our home values significantly, but structurally need our urgent attention as they are getting worse by the day.  I also don’t have to tell you that costs are going up, meaning the longer we wait the more expensive our roads are going to be to replace with no additional increase in value due to waiting.

Previous HOA board officers have done an amazing job preparing for financing this project by investing about $1,750 per month into an account specifically assigned for road replacement and that fund has been accruing cash in the amount of $223,998 at the beginning of Q1 2022.

Additional budget reserve accounts totaling $108,195 can also be used for funding this project bringing us up to $332,721.  Additional documentation follows to help show this in more detail.

The remaining $56,000 is the amount we will have to assess if we are to get this project done.  This equates to a $250 per home assessment across our 224 residences.  To ease the burden on the homeowners, payments for this will be broken up in Q2 and Q3 invoicing periods.

What if paving and $250 assessment pass?

New Roads starting in March!

  • We see an immediate lift in home values (way more than $250 of value, it’s an asset!)
  • Easier to sell your home (…at a better price, not that we want you to move LOL)
  • Entire community just looks better because it’s maintained and taken care of properly
  • Roads will be contracted before the April price increase. We all know costs are on the rise.
  • No terrible looking patches
  • Safer! As we will have speed bumps to help manage speed throughout our community
  • Roads done right with proper maintenance, including seal coating after year one and every five years after that, will last 20-30 years.

What if this vote fails?

This boils down to a “pay me now or pay me later” – if this vote fails, we will…

  • See big, maybe massive, increases in costs to get this required project done.
  • Wait 2 years and 10 months minimum to fully fund the project assuming costs only go up 10%. By that time, our roads will likely require even more extensive repair because of additional foundation degradation.
  • Additional cost having to fill our potholes at a cost roughly $1,000-$3,000 per year; again adding no additional long term value and just making our roads look broken and old.
  • We may be forced into getting our roads done where a loan could be obtained but require additional financial waste in terms of interest on the loan; essentially costing us all more money.

Although no one wants an assessment, I want to plea for your “yes” vote at the meeting on February 10th or via proxy to pass this paving project and the $250 per household assessment by the necessary 2/3rds margin.
