2003 Spring Newsletter

Successful Meeting…

Thank you for your attendance and support at the Oxford Place Neighborhood Meeting and get-together held on February 27th. Forty-five of the 108 properties were represented at the meeting. Good attendance considering that the neighborhood consists of about 26 unimproved lots, 70 completed homes and another 12 homes under construction. The meeting was very productive, started on time, and actually ended a little early. In addition to the agenda items, the board addressed several excellent questions from residents. Everyone left this meeting feeling good about Oxford Place and their fellow neighbors.

Budget and Neighborhood Maintenance Fee…

For 2003, the annual neighborhood maintenance is $150. An invoice is enclosed with the newsletter. The owner of record as of April 1, 2003 is responsible for the payment. The payment is due on April 30, 2003. Please send your payment on time.

The 2003 Board Members

After much encouragement, two residents stepped forward to serve on the board. Attendance (or proxy) by 54 of the 108 property owners constitutes a quorum so that an official vote can be held. Since we did not a have a quorum at the meeting, the new 2003 board will be considered an interim board until another meeting is held and a quorum is reached.

Neighborhood Directory

Another thank you to Donna Armstrong for her efforts in putting together the neighborhood directory. Some residents turned in directory questionnaires at the meeting and after the meeting. We hope to update the directory and have a new version available at the February 2004 meeting. If you were not able to attend the 2003 meeting and would like a copy of the directory, please contact Donna Armstrong at 547-9871.

Plans and implements a neighborhood event. At the meeting neighbors recommended and overwhelmingly supported adding a welcome wagon element to this committee. Members would welcome new residents and bring them a basket of goodies. The committee would like donations of coupons and promotional items from neighbors to fill the basket.
