The Thurston Groves Homeowner’s recently received a Ballot Survey in their Annual Meeting Package for the December 9th HOA Meeting. This is to survey the interest in pursuing a study for converting to a gated community;
“The Board has entertained a motion to survey the TGHOA homeowners on the interest of establishing a gated community defined as:
Rear & Front entrance security gates remotely controlled with private pass codes.
Please note that this would require the TGHOA homeowners to be responsible for maintaining our own roads, sidewalks, drainage repairs, sinkhole damage, street signs and all other responsibilities that would normally fall under the City of Seminole.This vote is only for establishing the interest of the homeowners. A final vote would come at the December 2014 annual meeting (a year from now). If we receive sufficient votes from the homeowners, the Board of Directors will undertake a study with our new management company in 2014. Previous informal research had indicated that a special assessment would be needed upfront followed by a substantial rise in the annual fees thereafter. In the interest of full disclosure, the study could cost the homeowners approximately $2500. Since approval will require a 2/3 majority of all the property owners, the Board would like to have 2/3 (58 property owners) to vote in the affirmative in order to conduct the study.
Your vote FOR to conduct this study _______
Your Vote AGAINST or DO NOT WANT TO BECOME a gated community
To make this clear, the study quoted above will be paid from TGHOA Administration expenses. At this time the Homeowners are not asked for any assessment .
