I want to share a quick summary of the past week’s events:
Town Hall Meeting on 11/21 to discuss “Revitalization:”
A good crowd was on hand to learn more about revitalization of the Deed Restrictions (“DR”) in VI. Anne Hathorn, legal counsel to the VIHA and a specialist in community association law, clarified the process and answered residents’ questions. The discussion highlighted the following points:
By signing the Consent Form, you are agreeing to keep the existing Deed Restrictions in place. We encourage you to return your signed Consent Form A.S.A.P. Let’s keep our neighborhood looking beautiful and keep increasing our property values by extending the DR’s. Once Revitalization is approved, the Deed Restriction Revision Committee will begin evaluating which DRs need to be eliminated, updated or added.
The Organizing Committee is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have prior to returning the Consent Forms. The contact info for the Organizing Committee members is included in the Revitalization packet that you should have received, and can also be found at http://www.ourvi.org/revitalization.html
First Annual Venetian Isles Fishing Tourney:
A committee lead by Terry Heddon and including Alex Becham, Eric Johnson and Scott Gault successfully organized the first neighborhood fishing tournament on 11/23. A total of 14 teams participated and competed for a number of trophies, but more importantly “bragging rights.” Results of the event are posted to www.ourvi.org. Thanks to the Committee for putting this together and a special thanks to the Tournament’s sponsors who are VI residents:
