Pinehurst Acres HOA Board Community Update

Hello Neighbors,
I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season and the new year is treating you well.
On behalf of the Pinehurst Acres HOA Board of Directors (“HOA Board”), I would like to provide you with some information and updates regarding our neighborhood. I would like to begin by saying thank you to all who took the time to vote on the 5th amendment to our bylaws. The 5th amendment passed and is now an approved document of record.
We are excited to welcome three new board members to our HOA Board. The passing of the 5th amendment has increased our HOA Board to five members and authorized electronic voting. April Neubauer joined the board through our general election in October, Bryan Lamble and Matt Olsafsky joined our board in November.
The new community website pinehurstacres.org has been up and running for a few months now. This is our primary tool for communication so we are strongly urging everyone to update their information and log in to the website so you can receive neighborhood updates, participate in surveys, vote on community matters, access documents and ensure your voice is heard. Please reach out to Rick Pridemore at boardofdirectors@pinehurstacres.org if you have any questions or need help accessing the site.
***NOTICE*** There is a new survey on our community website regarding path forward on the historical property. Please log in to pinehurstacres.org to participate in the survey. Please note the survey expires on March 15, 2020.
Briden Management has provided the HOA Board with their 30 day notice of contract termination. Briden Management will continue to provide management services until February 28. The HOA Board is actively seeking a new management company and we are in the process of accepting proposals. Please send any recommendations to boardofdirectors@pinehurstacres.org.
The HOA Board has elected to move the due date of the annual assessments to March 15, 2020. The due date change will only effect 2020, we will return back to the March 1 due date in 2021.

Drive Safe!

Winter is in full swing, and with the cold weather comes snow and slippery roads.  Please drive with caution as kids sledding and playing in the snow can be easy to miss with the bright sun and reflections from snow and ice.  Also avoid parking on the street during snow events so that the plows can do their work.  This avoids potential damage to your vehicle as the plows work, and allows them to better clear the streets. 

Snow Plowing and Salting
Our streets are public roads and technically maintained by the Oakland County Road Commission.  However, residential streets are the lowest priority on the snow plowing schedule for the County.  The Homeowner's Association contracts Lyon Homescape for snow removal and salting of the intersections to assist residents in ingress and egress from the neighborhood.  We do not salt the entire neighborhood and only contract for plowing when the snowfall is over 2".  Sidewalks are cleared in front of the clubhouse, at the bus stop, and in front of the commons areas.  Snow plowing is not intended to create dry roads free of all snow or ice, so please always use caution when driving in the winter through the neighborhood.  Residents are responsible to clear the sidewalks in front of their homes.

* The 5th Amendment recording has been confirmed.  The 2 new Board Members are now official.  The Board held Officer elections on February 1, 2020.  The new Board is now:
-President - Bruce Cournoyer
-Vice President - Matthew Olsafsky
-Treasurer - April Neubauer
-Secretary - Rick Pridemore
Congratulations to the new Board Members!
* The Association has voted to upgrade the landscaping in the cul-de-sac circles in the newer part of the condominium.  Due to the early cold snap this fall the upgrades have been pushed to Spring of 2020.

* Approximately 500 linear feet of French drains has been installed along the walking path in the area of lots 268 thru 274 to alleviate the standing water problems.  It appears to be successful so far, so the Association plans to install additional drains throughout the condominium commons in areas that are especially wet.  We live in a 'wet' area, so the problems may never be 100% eradicated, but hopefully this will lessen the problem.  
* Bruce has finished negotiations on the Pool Deck replacement contract and we hope to have it replaced early this year.
