Hello Park Owners, Park Staff and other interested parties!
As the incoming Board President I want to introduce myself and give everyone a quick update.
My name is Don Skakie and I have owned my lot in the Park since 2004. I love the Park and intend to work with the other Board Members to attend to the business of the Park by consensus and vote so that the Park is able to operate and be maintained both in the short term and in the years to come.
I was installed as President at a time when the Park is facing some challenges in addition to its day to day operations, but in talking with the other Board Members I can say that we all share a commitment to working together in the best interests of the Park, its Members and to do so in a manner that is consistent with State law, our Governing documents and in a manner that is without preference or prejudice to or against any person, property or situation.
The Board now consists of 4 of its 5 members so we are well able to conduct the business of the Park. We have received some notices from other Park members of their willingness to step up to fill the last vacant position, but I encourage anyone willing to join the Board to email the Board for equal consideration for this spot to make sure our roads and gates, water system and bridges, restrooms and all of the Park property and assets are kept in good order so that the Members can enjoy their property with peace of mind.
As with my appointment to the Board, the next newly installed Board Member will serve out the remainder of the term from the departing Board Member they replace until their respective election cycles require a vote of the General Membership.
There will most likely be a Special Meeting in September to bring the Board up to 5 members so please do let us know if you are willing to serve. Email the Board at [email protected] to let us know.
Although there have been some minor changes to better communicate, day to day operations will continue as they have. Tammy in the Park office will still be in on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm and the caretakers will continue to do their work directed by James and overseen by your Park Board.
Some email addresses have changed and others will be phased out, but you can continue to communicate as you have in the past. You may see redirection notices so please note these as you see them for your future communications.
Please do not email individual Board Members as it will simply cause them more time to forward your message on the others. Using the above email address will get your message to all the Board at the same time and will shorten the time to respond to your questions or concerns.
Park staff cannot help you with Board matters, so please say hi and be friendly, but reserve Park matters for discussion to the Board. Your message will be acknowledged and then followed up on after it has been discussed as a Board, so please be patient while waiting for an answer.
I look forward to seeing and meeting you all as time permits and intend to be at all future Board meetings in person so please do introduce yourself when you have time. Thank you!
