Old Business:

  • Annual Assessments/Liens: Larry and Maureen met with Burke Community Management Company to discuss the status of assessments/liens.  Final notice letters were sent to 31 homeowners who have not paid the fiscal year 2020-2021 assessments.  Past due assessments not received by November 15, 2021, will result in liens placed on those properties in December 2021.
  • Annual State Corporation Commission Report: Board filed the report and identified the KPWCA directors as required.
  • KPW Herald: Article explaining the purpose of the KPW Community Association and how it is different from the KPW Civic Association was published. Additional Herald articles will be submitted.
  • Tree Work: Two diseased trees on KPWCA land endangering member’s property at 10404 Ashcroft Way were removed.  Board paid the vendor for completed work.
  • Member Correspondence: Member submitted map of home owner associations in our neighborhoods.  Map will be posted on KPWCA website.

New Business:

  • KPWCA Officers: Nancy Grant is no longer a homeowner in KPW and Board will seek to appoint a replacement to fill the vacant post.
  • Member Correspondence: Several members prefer electronic/online forms of payment to pay annual assessment rather than writing a check but that option is not currently available.  Board will consult with management company to see if an online payment option can be made available.
  • Monthly Meetings: Board has returned to meeting in-person at the Laurel Ridge Elementary School CCS Multi-purpose room.  Meetings are scheduled the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm.

Hearing no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:22 pm.
