The Board has been following up regularly with county for the latest updates and has been informed that the street lights have been paid for, the plan to install them has been financed by the developer, and that the next step is for conduit for the streetlights to be put in place in preparation for the installation of the fixtures. This could happen anytime within the next month or so. The Board was provided with a diagram showing an aerial view of the community and the intended location of the streetlights [PDF]. Note that streetlights marked with “X” on the diagram will be installed with blackout fixtures to prevent light from shining into homes. These locations have been determined by the developer and the county and are not within the Board’s scope to adjust. However, we have been told that if there is an issue with lights shining within a homeowner’s windows, that additional blackout fixtures may be added to the light to remedy the issue.
The annual meeting and Board election is scheduled for Monday, October 17 at Ilchester Elementary. Homeowners should have received in the mail nomination letters as well as a timeline for submission of nominations and acceptance letters. Please note that although the letter states the open positions are for secretary and treasurer, these positions will be determined by the new board.Please pay close attention to the timeline as the deadlines are fast approaching. We encourage all homeowners to attend and those who are unable to attend to designate a neighbor to vote as proxy.
