New Business


  • We will be having another meeting on 3-18-15 to figure out a date to have our Board meeting at Strawberry in order to hand out keys, discuss new Board members, set up a date for the community garage sale, and plan the newsletter. Gail and Martin will be invited to discuss the keys and the newsletter. .
  • The Board will schedule the newsletter distribution at the 3-18-15 meeting.
  • The Board discussed the removal the oak tree near the gated entrance of the pool. At this time it is not clear whose property the tree is sitting on. At 3/18/15 meeting it was discussed that the tree is on the RGHA property and it was approved to cut down the tree and cut the wood up for the amount of $1500.


  • One of the home owners brought up to one of the Board members that their back fence opens up to the pool, which means they have access to the pool all year long The Board discussed this and thinks it is a liability. When the pool is closed we should like all gates to the pool area from the pool side of the gate so they do not have access when the pool is closed. We will table and discuss at the April Board meeting.
  • Notes were taken on what we would like to put in the newsletter. The notes were sent to Martin.
    At the time these notes were written, the newsletter was already passed out.
  • The Board decided that we will have our next meeting at Strawberry, which is open to all of the members to get their keys, discuss Board opening, or raise any issues they might have, on April 29th, from 6:30 to 7:30. The Board will meet at 6:00.
