Dear Members,

It's time again for our annual HOA meeting. Here are the details for the meeting:

7:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 10th
Coppell Library

Meeting agenda will consist of Introductions, Old Business, Budget Report, and New Business.

Discussions will be held concerning repairs to our mailboxes, brick wall and entrances. There will be a special assessment this year and for a few years to come concerning the restoration/repairs needed to the wall and the mailboxes. As most of you know Park Meadow section 2 has had ongoing repairs to their brick wall for several years now. We now face the same type of repairs, but not to the same extent. Our brick wall is only half the length of Park Meadow 2.

Our brick wall was built in 1985, 27 years ago, but now repairs are needed. It has been inspected and recommended that we begin work now, so we can do it over time keeping the annual assessment to the members as low as possible. You may not be aware, but our HOA dues have not been increased in the 27 years this neighborhood has been here. We have had only one special assessment of $125.00 several years ago for masonry work on the wall.

Please be in attendance for this important meeting! It is a chance to hear the plans of your Architectural Committee and to voice any suggestions or concerns you may have.

Best regards,
Cindy Etheredge

Annual Meeting Minutes, May 17, 2011

Dear Members,

I received a call today from a gracious member asking for information in regards to replacing a fence. During our conversation she mentioned that she had visited this blog and didn't see any news about our annual meeting. I appreciated her call as I checked this blog and saw that my update post about the annual meeting didn't "post". I'm sure it was a "user error".

2011 Annual Meeting Minutes:

Our annual meeting was held May 17, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Coppell Library. We had 19 members present.

Cindy Etheredge called the meeting to order. In Debbie Diamonds absence, Cindy read the minutes from the 2010 annual meeting. In Mark Henry's absence, Cindy gave the update on the financials. There are 23 members that have not paid their 2010 dues. 48 members have paid 2011 dues leaving 34 still outstanding for the year 2011. Notices are to be sent to those who are delinquent.

The Fall Neighborhood Get Together, held in the Quiet Valley cul de sac, was a success with lots of entries in our chili cook-off, costume and decorated pumpkin contest. Debbie Hardin was the winner of the chili cook-off and decorated pumpkin contest. The 2011 Get-Together will be held in the Morning Mist cul de sac during the fall, possibly National Night Out on October 4, 2011.

Cindy Etheredge consulted with an attorney about the need to update our Articles of Incorporation. It was the concensus of the members present not to make any changes to our Articles of Incorporation at this time.

Cindy Etheredge opened up the floor for nominations or volunteers for new officers for the 2011-12 year. It was voted and passed to re-elect Cindy Etheredge as President and Debbie Diamond as Secretary/Treasurer. Mark Henry stepped down as Treasurer. Charles Hardin, John Mix and Cindy Etheredge continue to serve as the Architectural Committee.

A motion was made and seconded that the meeting be adjourned.

Best regards,
Cindy Etheredge

Coppell Park Meadow HOA Meeting June 28, 2010

Dear Members,

The annual Park Meadow I HOA meeting was held on June 28th with approximately 15 members present. There were introductions by each person attending and then the meeting was called to order.

Cindy Etheredge called the meeting to order. Mark Henry gave a review of the financial report. There are 52 families out of the 82 that have paid their dues for 2010. Reminder letters will go out to those that have not paid.

Discussions were held about our annual HOA neighborhood party. It will be held in conjunction with National Night Out. The date is to be determined. The volunteers to coordinate the party are Debbie Hardin, Susan Mix, Teressa Parham, and Debbie Diamond. Quiet Valley will be the location this year.

The HOA Blog will continue to be a part of communications for the neighborhood. Cindy Etheredge will look for ways to improve visibility of the blog. We encourage members to use this blog to post referrals for babysitting, lawncare and good maintenance people.

Cindy Etheredge brought to the members attention that our HOA bylaws have not been updated since originally written. Volunteers offered to check with some of their contacts to see how we go about getting them updated. Rick Diamond offered to contact attorney Jay Turner to see if he had any suggestions. A motion was made and seconded that we add solar panel and windmill policies to the bylaws.

Discussion was also opened for improvements for sidewalk issues to keep the neighborhood looking nice and safe for walkers. It is encouraged that the homeowner call the City of Coppell streets department and request sidewalk repair.

Motion to re-elect current officers was made and seconded. Current officers were elected for 2010-11:

Cindy Etheredge - President
Mark Henry - Treasurer
Debbie Diamond - Secretary
Charles Hardin, John Mix and Cindy Etheredge will continue to serve on the Architectural Committee.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:11 p.m.
