Dear Lake Forest Residents,
On May 21st, the Lake Forest Homeowner’s Association (LFHOA) will be having its annual meeting. Save the date! In order to conduct business, we need a minimum of 10%, or 63 owners, to be represented at the meeting. So please consider attending! As an incentive, we have several enticing door prizes for those who come.
The LFHOA has had a very busy year and we’d like to update you on issues and activities we’ve been involved in since we met last year. We’ve had great events like hayrides over the holidays, movies in the park, and neighborhood garage sales. We’ve also painted the pool area and resurfaced the pool decking.
We also want to inform all Lake Forest neighbors of what to expect over the coming year. For example, did you know that our deed restrictions require specific colors for fences and one specific color for roofs? We will be working over the coming year to inform our residents about this and to begin a notification process for those who may not have known about this requirement.
Every year, the HOA board decides on how best to use our funds to invest in our community. Some issues, of course, are difficult to decide on without your input. At the annual meeting, we will be informally surveying our residents how they would prioritize key issues, and related funding, on:
· Playscape upgrades
· Basketball court maintenance
· Tennis Court upgrades (lighting/security)
· Creek and Forest Cleanup
· Amenity Area Upgrades
· Lighting at the mailboxes
· School traffic and street parking
The board will use this information to make decisions on how to spend our funds in these areas. So come and let us know what you think!
Also, we all believe that a good neighborhood is made up of good neighbors. Current and future homeowners look for this as a key in deciding to live in our neighborhood. Please consider spending as little as 1-2 hours per month as a volunteer on any of our committees. There are no special requirements other than your interest in keeping our neighborhood a wonderful place to live. Our committees include:
· Neighborhood Watch
· Architectural Control
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday May 21st at 6:30 PM!
Lake Forest HOA President
