Last Gasp Landscape Committee Meeting–update

Tonight, Friday, November 14, 2008,  7:00 pm, at 2181 Hallmark Drive. 

View the landscape plan! Offer comments!  

Last chance before January! 

John L.

P.S.   They met (all five of 'em),  they examined the architect's final drawing/plan, they discussed some features of it (the cost of some trees, for example), and they approved it for submission to the HWPOA directors at their meeting this next Monday, 17 November 2008, at 2161 Hallmark Drive. For the record,  just two observers showed up for the committee meeting.  Makes ya wonder if anyone cares.....

The plan is very similar to the one on the HW website (Sketch B), but with the possible plantings detailed on it. Now it will be up to the directors to approve the plan, get contractors to bid on implementing it, and  present it to the community at our annual meeting on 12 January 2009.*  Meantime, if you can't find a copy of the committee-approved plan on the HW website, you can email me (address in profile at the top of the sidebar) and I'll send you one... or click on the image below for a larger copy.  

And, of course, if you review the plan and have any comments, you can post them here or send them directly to the directors.

*   UPDATE:  The directors seem to have had other intentions. They accepted the plan, but then passed a lengthy motion to not wait until January, but use money from the association's  bank account to implement a "Phase 1" immediately, leaving "Phase 2" to sometime next year when (they expect) HW property owners all will have sent in their extra $125 (for a total of about $200 for the year).  

   Assuming a contractor will be available (the landscape committee chairman was to find out),  Phase 1 would involve such things as digging up all the existing plantings (holly, euonymous, etc.) and planting the new hollies that would then start growing through the winter season.  The dug-up bushes, apparently, would be just trashed.  –JL–
