Bob Truesdell read his report to the members. A summary is below: - As previously mentioned by Jordan, 2007 was a quiet year for the ACC - Asphalt roofing materials are allowed on a case by case basis and all roofing projects must be approved by the ACC before starting work - Satellite dishes are approved on a case by case basis. They must not be in an obtrusive place, not face the street and must be approved by the ACC before installation. - Make sure your yard waste and recycling cans are properly stored not visible to the street or neighbors. - Yard of the Month and Holiday decorations will continue to be judged by the ACC - Keep trees trimmed and cut back from the street. Resident Rob Judge asked about installing a shed in his yard and what he could do. The ACC must review the shed and plan before built for approval. It should blend with the house and neighborhood.

One of our residents asked about the entrance street light not working. It is intermittently on and off during the hours of darkness. Terry Leigh mentioned that the sensor was failing and would need replacing when this happens. Since we are paying for that light Jordan has volunteered to contact the City of Lakewood about fixing the light.

Dick Mannix has asked residents to get any names of fencing contractors to the Board for establishing estimates of replacement.

The ballots for election of 2008 Board members were tallied. 12 votes were counted in favor of electing Board members as follows: Jordan Harris, President. Dick Mannix, Vice President. Terry Leigh, Treasurer and Brook Judge, Secretary.
Margie Shea recommended a “meet and greet” once a year or so to socialize with our neighbors and community. Jordan suggested that we might want to gather residents to spread bark again this year at the front entrance to meet and catch up with our neighbors. With vandalism a problem this might help control the problem if we are more connected with our neighbors. It’s possible to add this question to the website to see what interest there is. Dick Mannix asked if there were any ideas on how to generate more interest in our meetings and the community. It was suggested that we change the time of year of our Annual Meeting and have it within the confines of Creek Ridge to draw additional attendees or future Board members. Some other ideas were to hold a raffle at the meeting. Take a poll of residents to see why they are not coming to the meetings. Brooke Judge was prepared to conduct the poll online to all residents.
Real Estate changes: Terry Leigh stated that all CC&R’s, Bylaws and copies of last two meeting minutes must be made available to buyers. Federal Law dictates this so making sure we are up to date on our website will help buyers meet this requirement. Speeders: Brooke Judge mentioned that she flags down speeders who come through the neighborhood and she sees them. She steps into the street and asks them to slow down.
Meeting was adjourned. 8:03 pm
