THE STREETS OF HONEYBROOK PLANTATION
The HOA Board has been discussing the streets & repaving for about a year now. They are aware of the heavy use that the front entrance (intersection of Riverside Road & Silver Oak Blvd.) gets. The problem is that this repair work will not be cheap. Many parts of the road require more then just a simple patch job & coating. The Board has meet with a few asphalt companies to get quotes on repaving or resurfacing the streets of the community. Those quotes were quite high – one was $650,000. The Board is aware that this is too much, and we need some help to determine what is the best way to repair the streets, at the best possible price. Because of that, the Board has approved monies to hire an engineer to evaluate the streets & give us an action plan to go forward.
Once the Board knows what the full scope of the project will be, we can get competitive bids based on those specifications
Regardless of what those bids look like, the Board will need to call for a Special Assessment. The Special Assessment process, according to the Covenants & By-Laws of the community, is as follows:
- A letter to go out to all members about the assessment & announcing a Special Assessment Board meeting no later then 30 days prior to the meeting and no sooner then 60 days..
- A quorum of 60% of the communities homeowners (or their proxies) must be present at the Special Assessment Board Meeting to vote on the assessment.
- The assessment must be approved by a 2/3rds majority of the members (and/or proxies) in attendance.
- If quorum isn’t reached (ie: less then 60% of homeowners come to the meeting), then a second letter goes out to announce another Special Assessment meeting. This time quorum is 50% of the homeowners.
The process will take several months to get the Special Assessment approved. Only then can the roadwork be started. When you receive the notice of the Special Assessment meeting, please be sure to attend the meeting OR fill out the proxy form so that someone you know & trust who is planning on attending the meeting can vote in your stead.
