Thanks for your input.
Regarding "speed", I am infavor of replacing stop signs (which people basically ignore) with some strategically placed speed bumps. But the BOARD is not intersted in considering that. Instead, they want ADD 30 speed bumps! That will only hamper emergency services (Firetrucks typically have to STOP and roll over them...), and, in conjunction with the Stop Signs will only add to the over 600 per year I've been spending on brakes for my cars... (I live well down Shotwell, near the pump...)
I am also in favor of repairing the playground equipment. Things need to be kept up, and kept safe.
Please note that the proxy has you voting 3 separate times for stuff related to the pool/bathrooms. I would have liked to see 3 separate plans, not 3 votes that can all be used to say "look, they want us to invest 140k in a new building..."
We've lived here nearly 10 years, just so you know. I'm sorry that you have a bad neighbor. Have you talked to them? Do you know why they don't cut their grass? Perhaps there are financial problems.... and no covenant in the world is going to make money appear so they can fix up their property. That's just a fact.
And again, thanks for your input!
