Many have been asking about garage sales so we will have one end of the month and possibly another one if our neighboring subdivisions have one at the same time. Garage sales are allowed during Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan. In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Orders, no more than 10 people are allowed at a sale at one time and six feet social distancing must be maintained. If social distancing cannot be maintained, face coverings should be worn.
First, we hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy with the current pandemic. The board members have still been in contact via email, text, and phone calls to make sure we are sticking to our goal of making improvements to the subdivision. We have been in contact with our lawyers since late last year in order to update our documents. Very soon, we should have some results and we are hoping to get voting started on making some changes that were requested. One of the changes we hope to implement is allowing more features online, such as voting and payments. Thank you again for filling out the surveys that came with your dues letter. We had a great response and below are the results. Survey Results:
Communication- The majority of homeowners voted to receive communication via email. Going forward, most communication will be sent through the website. Please register so your email address is on file. Once registered, you can control how much information is sent to your email. Dues will still be mailed.
Community Improvements- Below is a list of community improvement requests written from those that received the most votes to the least. Improvement suggestions that were written in by community members are also included on this list.
135th and Van Dyke corner
Tree planting/ removal
Less spending/ detailed budget
Lights for all islands
Allow skating on ponds
Ban of blue/daylight exterior lights
Gates at entrances
Neighbors maintain their yards
We still have a small number of homeowners that have not paid their dues. If you have not paid, please do so. If you have any questions about payments, please reach out to the board via email.
Unfortunately, with the current situation and likely changes to our lifestyles going forward we have canceled future community events involving our subdivision. Hopefully, we can come up with some creative ways to get the community involved while complying with guidelines and recommendations in the near future.
