LCA President's Report

I am delighted to be a new Lakes HOA Board member and appreciate the Board's confidence in electing me as President at the Annual Meeting.

I want to thank Dave Kemper and the previous Board of Directors for the great job they have done and leaving this new Board with a financially-strong and healthy association. I also want to thank Christine, Karen and all the LCA staff for welcoming the new board members and facilitating the documents for a smooth transition.

Even though I am newly elected to the Board, I did serve on the Board previously from 2007-2010, serving as Vice President for 2 of those years.

I will do my best to represent our community as your President, and I am working to get up to speed on the issues we may want to tackle this year.

A couple of things that I would like to address this year include:

1. Seeing through the great work that the previous Board and Infrastructure & Maintenance Committee have done on the transition of expensive potable water to much less expensive Lake (SRP) water for our common area irrigation needs to significantly reduce our water costs.

The Board has already approved the first phase. We will closely monitor this first phase to make sure everything is working according to plan, and if so, will continue with Phases 2 and 3 as quickly as possible.

2. At our Annual Meeting one of the members' comments related to our primary community entry at Lakeshore and Baseline Road. This is something I have been thinking about as well and would also like to see an upgrade to our primary entry.

While it is nicely landscaped, the signage and structures are very outdated, and could use updating. Additionally, from a timing perspective, we have a potential opportunity to utilize funds from the development across the street to supplement the cost to improve this area.

We will provide updates on this potential project as we get more information.

Finally, we were elected to this Board to serve you, the members of this community. In order for us to be most effective, we need all of you to participate and get involved, whether on a committee, attending board meetings or expressing ideas. I would welcome any thoughts, concerns, ideas you may have regarding our community, and how we can continue to improve our property values and quality of life for all residents.
