- John noted 11-12% of homeowners are late on payment of dues. John also noted that per our covenants Article 4.1 (3) no lot shall be used except for residential purposes. A resident is a person who lives somewhere permanently or on a long term basis. A residential purpose is a purpose involving residents and AirBnb and like kind customers are, by definition, are not residents. John motioned that all rentals under a month are not allowed and the Airbnb on Cleone Court is in violation of the Covenants. James seconded the motion and all other board members present approved. The board decided the owners on 10030 SE Cleone Court will be sent a letter by the end of the week to cease these operations by the 10th of October or will be fined the maximum amount penalty per day and that any covenant violations in the interim would be subject to the same.
- James contacted Clackamas County as stated in the last minutes. And per the code any fowl, etc., needs to be located no closer than 100 feet from any dwelling other than the dwelling of the owner of the subject property. See #821. F. 1 & 2. It appears the adjacent owners need to do their due diligence to see if that 100 feet is within those guidelines.
- James also formally complained the Airbnb continues to be a issue and is in violation of the covenants. As the board approved action, James will be sending the board letter certified mail to the property owners. Also noted past meeting concerns such as the HOA walkways.
- Natalie noted she received a call from the gentleman that planted the firs in the HOA common areas. After discussion, Natalie and John are planning to visit the site this coming Sunday and mark the trees that may stay. In the next few months the others will be removed. Natalie also mentioned talking with the neighbor about the tree that continues to get complaints.
- Noted very few homeowners respond to letters. Hasn't received any complaints recently.
- Josh has had a few homeowners email him and has approved requests and is waiting for others to provide further information.
- Steve said the school received a grant for safer routes on Stevens road. Steve's walked through the HOA and noted several walkways in need of repair.
- The Sunnyside and West Mt. Scott CPOs officially were merged together as of July 17, 2018. The next (first joint meeting) CPO meeting is on October 1st at the Fire Station - 7:00PM. There will be a hearing at the Happy Valley Planning Commission on October 9th regarding Eagle Landing. They are seeking a major amendment to their preliminary master plan.
