Owners are welcome to attend meetings. We believe informed owners are the cornerstone to maintaining our subdivision in good standing and contribute to the success of our HOA, every owner is a member of the HOA.

At the beginning of each meeting, there is a forum where an owner can address the board for a brief time. Time is limited and in order to get our business done in an orderly fashion, we restrict this time to a maximum of 3 minutes each. After that time the Board, their committees, and contractors will discuss the HOA business without interruption.

An owners’ concern can often be answered more quickly by emailing the Board or our management company. If an owner wishes to present a proposal or major suggestion to the entire Board, please contact the Board President at least a week in advance of the meeting date with details and, a request to be put on the meeting agenda.

“The earth laughs in flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Wall Committee has been established as Board member Russell Hildebrand, resident Myron Shemek. The committee is working to evaluate the community walls and formulate a plan of ongoing restoration and care of our aging walls.

Wall Care: We need every resident who has the direct benefit of our brick walls to care for the walls by keeping their trees and foliage from growing against and over the walls. These practices will help us protect and prolong the life of our valuable community walls and prevent avoidable damage to these valuable community assets.

Cypress Forest PUD:

Section 4 sewer video inspection scoping has begun in preparation for rehab and maintenance work on that section of our sewers.

Work will begin shortly on the water plant 1 and tower on Herts Rd. The inside of the tower will be rehabbed and the exterior will be cleaned and repainted.
