The June meeting of the Walnut Creek South Homes Association was convened at the clubhouse at 7:00 pm on June 15, 2016, by Ken Emerson, Board President. Board members in attendance were Carol Arnold, Joe Bichler, Joe Blount, Ken Emerson, Ken Finke, Mike Howell and Bernice Motts.   Not in attendance were Phil Latessa and Alex Hodges.

Minutes from the May 2016 Board Meeting were approved.

Traffic statistics for the updated website were presented including 481 new user visits to the new site since its launch and over 2100 page views. The office is learning how to make additions and updates to the website.

Towards the end of June, Firefly Marketing will be working with our office on installation and use of Constant Contact for our email alerts and announcements. The email list is being built from those who have requested newsletter via email and pool pass request email addresses.  Anyone who receives a Walnut Creek email alert or announcement will have the ability to ‘opt out’ to discontinue the email notifications.

Both Storm Water Projects are waiting on contractor scheduling with expected starts by the end of June or early July. The Raintree project is a private homeowner project sponsored by the Homes Association.  Impacted homeowners have provided escrow funds for their participation.  The Rush Creek cleanup and erosion control project is on Homes Association land and will be completed in two phases with the first being removal of dead trees and tree debris that block the creek flow along our ball field recreational area.

The community has been receptive to resolving restriction violations. Many have already corrected violations or have requested additional time to comply.  As of the June Board Meeting conclusion, only seven homes have either failed to respond or refused to correct violations on their property.  The Board approved a motion to suspend membership privileges for members failing to comply.

County ordinance violation checks will start in the next couple of weeks. This effort will involve working with Platte County on ordinance violation identification.

Letters received from homeowners were reviewed and discussed. Topics included the need for dues payment through August or ACH participation to receive pool passes; restriction violation issue concerning the inclusion of a motor home as a form of camper; and establishing a ‘Little Free Library’ near the clubhouse.

Committee Reports were presented and discussed.

The Community Meeting was adjourned by motion, second, and unanimous approval.
