Motion to approve by:  Bob Maudlin     Seconded by:  Alan Kohlhaas

Old Business:  Alan Kohlhaas located Bylaws regarding Pole Structures and presented them to the Committee.Those Bylaws, under Section 4-9. Foundation Rules, brought up questions that require further consideration. The Committee Members should consider the issues and be prepared to make recommendations regarding the topic to be addressed at our next meeting. A variance requested for Lot # 3094 at 1463 Greenlawn Way had been shelved when first considered by the POA Board due to unresolved matters. Those issues have been addressed and the Variance request shall again be presented to the Board at the next Board Meeting with a recommendation that the original recommended fine be enforced and the majority of the Committee members will not recommend the issuing of the variance for the parking pad as currently constructed.

New Business:  

George Lortz, Lot # 1882, 1512 Aqua Vista Drive.  George presented and discussed updated proposals for future projects to improve the front entrance to Hidden Valley and other related appearance enhancements for signage and cleaning/painting of buildings, replacing fencing, etc. in other areas of the community.
