Open Discussion:
1. A homeowner stated that cable lines are not in Section #3. The rest of the subdivision
   has cable except for the newest section. Contact was made to Comcast Cable to a Mr.
   Mike Alonzo in the Fredrick, MD office. Mr. Alonzo stated that the underground
   utility ditch was closed before the cable could be laid. At this point, with the small
   amount of homes in that section, Comcast does not see it as a profitable business
   venture. The homeowner was told that splitting the cost with the HOA may be a
   viable option. The HOA will contact Mr. Alonzo.
2. Quotes are going to be requested for the following issues in the neighborhood:
   a. Opening a ditch to allow for installation of underground cable to be laid in section
        #3 for street lights
   b. Re-graveling the shoulders of all roads.
   c. Re-grading the shoulder on lot # 137 and 138
   d. Road repair on Cahill Ct. and on Fantasia Road near Grizz Lane where the
        culverts have settled the road badly.
3. One homeowner stated there have been some destructive acts done in the subdivision.
   a. A garden hose was turned on into a basement area and a basement was filled with
   b. Paintballs were shot at a house.
   c. A home in section 3 was recently burglarized.
   d. A home had windows shot out with pellet gun.

   Homeowners were instructed to keep eyes out for people that do not belong in the
   subdivision. A suggestion of locking outside water values was a suggestion. The
   question was brought up about a gate with a pass code or keys at each entrance. The
   HOA will look into this
4. Yard sales
   a. We will be having a community yard sale on the 2nd weekend in July. This will
      be on Friday and Saturday
   b. The yearly yard sale date will be in the spring. A date will be established for this.

5. Community Center
   a. The HOA will look into purchasing a piece of property to create a commuity
      center. Possible ideas for this center would be:
            Swimming pool
            Tennis Courts
            Banquet Room
            Etc.

Pete Brewster adjourned the meeting.
