The meeting was called to order by Tony Helbling, at 6:30 p.m. Other board members present were Steve Barrett, David Danskey, and Nikkie McIntire. Dave Paul was absent.

David made a motion for the Board to adjourn into executive session to discuss legal counsel issues regarding declarancy. The motion was seconded by Tony and unanimously approved. At 7:00 p.m. Tony called the regular meeting of the Board back to order. (This action is taken in accordance with ORS 94.640 (7)(a) The Board may close the meeting to owners and meet in executive session to: Consult with legal counsel, and consider personnel matters, negotiate contracts and collection of unpaid assessments.) There were five additional Association members present at the regular meeting session.


Minutes for the Board of Directors Meeting held May 13, 2014 were approved as presented.

Open Membership Session

A member expressed concern about the broken board on top of the lunch table by the playground. The paint is chipped on the hand rail down to Chee Chee Court and weeds next to the stair case.

Treasurers Report

David reported he contacted Big Tree.  Best planting time is Oct thru May. Outside of those times requires a larger root ball and increased expense.  I am suggesting October. 20% down will secure a planting date.

  • $3,000 for Commons modifications project.
  • $104 for Legal
  • $1350 to $1650 for tree planted in the commons.  $400 will be paid this month towards a tree to secure a planting date.
  • Approximately $600 is due to the Storage Depot by Aug 1st for the Association storage room.
  • ProGrass billing for May has not been received as of today.

Unfinished Business
