At the recent March MPMA Meeting, Board Members and member-guests took a crash course how to read and understand our VGC financial reports. Jim Hall, our Financial Advisor and Accountant, offered the tutorial. For those who are interested, a copy of the presentation will be included in the official minutes posted online.

The Strategic Planning Committee [Jack Gisler, Dennis Olson, Kurt Carlson, John Cress] has been meeting with focus groups exploring where we are as an Association and what changes, if any, we want to make. Our twenty-year-old covenants and bylaws are being redrafted to reflect recent changes in state law, the exit of our developer declarant, and the fine tuning of our master and phase governance structure and priorities. If you have ideas you want to pass on to the Strategic Planning Committee there are two meetings planned on April 8thand 15th [1:30 to 3:30] at Son Bridge Community Center. All interested members are welcome.

Ray Goff, Common Areas Chair, says we will have our usual road work this summer crack sealing and seal coating just a portion of our roads. Every year we repair some of the roads so that all roads receive maintenance on a regular basis. We’ve had to replace a few street lights this Spring. If you notice that a light in your area is not working, please report the street light number and/or location to Ray Goff We are replacing bulbs with new LED fixtures [in Phases 1-2] to give us brighter light and a cheaper cost in operation.

For those who may have noticed, we did have a serious car accident on Garrison Village Way this month. There were no injuries to people, but our landscaping was damaged. We are grateful to our first responders for their quick action and to our landscaping contractor, Ike Muro, for his clean up and damage assessment. We expect the driver’s insurance to cover our repair costs.

ARC is planning on replacing some of our road signs soon and will be putting together a volunteer work party to paint the speed bumps along Garrison Village Way. As part of Strategic Planning, ARC is researching parking issues in the Villages. Comments and ideas should be directed to the Architectural Review Committee, Jim Murphy, Dennis Olson, and Tom Emmerson.

Also, the Board accepted the February Financial Report, approved the Minutes of the February Board Meeting, and approved a reimbursement of $2099.20 to Phase VI for their prorated share of collections and lien dollars returned to MPMA from the delinquent 985 Creekside account.

The next MPMA Board Meeting is scheduled for April 24, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the SonBridge Community Center 1200 SE 12th Street, College Place.
