Open submissions for homeowner concerns

The Locust Chapel HOA Board of Directors is asking for your questions and concerns with regard to developer and Ryan Homes issues. Our top priority at this time is ensuring a smooth transition from the developer and Ryan Homes’ control of the community to HOA responsibility. Dozens of eyes are better than a few so we are asking for the community’s help in identifying areas of concern, incomplete construction, unclear intentions, areas needing repair and areas that need to be addressed by the developer or Ryan Homes.

Responses must be submitted by Sunday, November 2 at 5 PM such that the Board can review them and create our prioritized list on Monday, November 3.

Please remember, lot line to lot line concerns fall within your individual domain and you must deal directly with Ryan Homes to resolve these.  That being said, if we find a common issue among multiple homes or individual homeowners are having difficulty having service issues resolved, the HOA will address those concerns on an individual basis moving forward.

Submit Concerns

HOA Board of Directors

The HOA Board of Directors met on Monday, October 20 and began organizing for what is sure to be a very busy and exciting time for our community.  We would like to thank you all for the trust you have placed in us to work together and move Locust Chapel forward.
The Board of Directors will be as follows for the 2014-15 term:
  • President – Amy Mitchell, 3 year term
  • Vice President – Raju Shah, 3 year term
  • Treasurer – Jack Scanlon, 2 year term
  • Secretary – Anthony Lipphardt, 2 year term
  • Member-At-Large – Ed DeSantis, 1 year term
Moving forward, all newly elected/re-elected members will serve three year terms.
 
WEBSITE
We are in the process of setting up a website for the community which will be used for communication, feedback and maintenance of records, ensuring continuity as the board turns over.
 
DEVELOPER TURNOVER
We hear the concern that exists regarding the turnover of the community to the HOA and ensuring the developer, Ryan Homes and the county complete, to our satisfaction, the work they are bonded to perform.  With this in mind, we will be focusing on this issue first and primarily in the upcoming months.
 
REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK
You will be receiving an email on Sunday asking for your feedback and concerns with regard to DEVELOPER and RYAN HOMES issues.  The request you receive on Sunday will be for concerns which need to be addressed prior to the HOA taking possession of common areas etc.  Feedback must be received by Sunday, November 2 at 5pm such that the Board can review them and create our prioritized list on Monday, Nov 3.
 
Please remember, lot line to lot line concerns fall within your individual domain and you must deal directly with Ryan Homes to resolve these.  That being said, if we find a common issue among multiple homes or individual homeowners are having difficulty having service issues resolved, the HOA will address those concerns on an individual basis moving forward.
 
There will be much more in the coming weeks, so please watch your emails for updates, requests for feedback and volunteer opportunities.  We have 9 homes that we will be reaching out to who we do not have email contact information for.  If you wish to not receive email at one of your accounts, please notify Anthony Lipphardt at alipphardt@gmail.com.
 
As always, if there is anything I, or any member of the board, can do to be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask.  We ask that you be patient with us as we establish the new HOA and work diligently to address everyones’ concerns quickly and fairly.
 
Respectfully yours,
 
Amy Mitchell
President, Locust Chapel HOA
