The meeting opened with Philip Cady of Elite Roofing. Philip was present to review options for new roofs in our community. The majority of the roofs in our neighborhood are the original ones placed by the builder and the time for updating them is near. The board is seeking bids to facilitate a group discount for those who wish to participate.

Elite roofing is offering a 7% discount should 7 or more homeowners enter into contract with them for a new roof. For more information on Elite Roofing contact at Philip@eliteroofnw.com

Meeting called to order at 7:00pm
Reports
Secretary: The minutes from the November meeting were approved as read.
President: Gordon reported that the banking information and signature cards need to be updated with the bank. He will make an appointment to have that done.
He also noted the board needs to create a committee to handle the management of information of all the rented homes. The board will discuss the details and responsibilities of the committee chair.
Treasurer: Meg reported 60 homeowners have paid their dues thus far. The final date to pay is Feb. 20th. There is one homeowner who still has not paid the 2016 dues. Currently there are no liens against properties.
Landscaping Chairman: Gordon will be acting LC until a replacement can be found. He noted we should look at potential new landscape companies to get competitive bids. Natural Landscape has already told us they will increase their fees and it could be more than what we have budgeted.  The landscapers will be cleaning the pine needles off of the gazebo in the Gables park.
Architectural Control Chairman: Old Business: One request was received from a homeowner in the Gables to add a greenhouse. The board will review and discuss.
New Business: The appointment of the Board of Directors is as follows; Gordon Hill, President; Meg Paul, Treasurer; Penny Gowen Secretary.
The board will actively look into bids from roofing companies to see if we could get a group rate if several homes sign on.
A homeowner has noticed a lot of dumping in the green belt along the path recently stating that people are dumping Christmas trees and shrubs. There is concern for erosion and the homeowner asked if a fence could be put up to prevent further dumping. The board will look into that but thought a no dumping sign would be good until another option could be found.
One homeowner asked about the rules regarding parking trailers and that one home had been in violation for several weeks.

Old Business: The board decided not to purchase a new pressure washer.
The board did not approve the homeowner’s request to install the antenna.
Meeting Adjourned at 8:00pm
