In this issue:


The Board recommended several amendments to the Declaration and By-Laws. The votes received have been overwhelmingly in favor of the amendments. However, we still need more votes to reach the 75% threshold required for approval.

The documents were written in 1972 and the Board identified a number of areas where protections were needed and voting procedures could be modernized. An explanation of each proposed amendment is included in the ballot. The Board recommends approval of the amendments and requests all who have not voted to please do so.

Please complete pages 1-5 of the ballot, sign and date it, and mail it to the address shown on page one or scan and email it to or fax it to VDarr @602-252-1114.
