From the Chairman, Bill Hamlet:
A regular meeting of the Board of Directors of the Landfall COA met on Tuesday, May 25, 2021. All members of the Board were in attendance, 6 in person and one via Zoom. The COA financials for the period ending April 30, 2021, were reviewed and approved; these financials continue to be very positive. The operating and improvement fund contributions and expenditures, including the Dye Lake, Lee Shore Place and the halfway house bulkhead projects, were summarized. The capital and unrestricted improvement funds equity ended April 30th at $2,060,000 and is currently projected to end the year at $2,051,000. Mr. Hughes explained the positive financial impact of the Landfall Association Services (LAS) and Landfall Owners Services (LOS) programs.
The Board confirmed the Nominating Committee’s recommendations of Jerry Van Schaick and Jason Lumpkin as the two new non-board members of the Finance Committee, previously approved. One additional ARC Guidelines’ revision related to the definition of gazebos was recommended by the ARC and approved by the Board. It was confirmed that the July 3rd fireworks display has been planned with the fireworks company and confirmed with the Country Club of Landfall and the Wilmington Fire Department. The Board was brought up to date on the complaints that have been received about the customer service issues residents are experiencing at the Arboretum Postal Station. COA Staff have scheduled meetings with local and regional US Postal officials to discuss our concerns in more detail. The COA Staff updated the Board on their continued efforts to evaluate the feasibility of using more electric equipment, solar panels and a future centrally located 5G cell tower. We will continue to review and update the latest information on these topics.
The playground equipment has been ordered and is expected to be installed in late June or early July. You will see more speed minders since the Covenants & Security Committee (C&S) is conducting traffic studies throughout the community. Likewise, this Committee is considering additional property surveillance cameras resulting from the recent acts of vandalism. C&S is also working with the Building & Grounds Committee (B&G) to evaluate the surrounding developments and the upcoming DOT road construction projects and the impact that those may have on our entrances. Any recommendations on these topics will be presented to the Board; in turn the Board decisions will be shared with you.
The 2021 Annual Informational Meeting was discussed and a date set for July 27, 2021 at 6pm.
COA Staff presented an informative Storm Water Presentation to the Board. This presentation will be placed on the Landfall Resident website Portal for resident review.
