• Community Outreach – Keith Covert and Victor Leslie are engaging in local groups such as SAND and NPU in order to stay abreast of activity in the area and to represent the interests of Glenwood Green. Anyone interested in attending meetings held by these and other local groups should contact Keith or Victor.

VIII. Financial Report (5/01/19 – 5/31/19)

IX. New Business
A. CMA has transferred community rental monitoring services to a firm called RMS (Rental Monitoring Solutions). Blanket communications were sent from RMS to residents at various CMA managed communities without prior review by CMA. In the event you received an email notification from RMS, please note that the content of the communication was not fully applicable, being that Glenwood Green is a Non-Rental Community. CMA will be addressing this over-sight; however, the services that RMS is providing Glenwood Green will be valuable with regard to monitoring unauthorized renting.
B. The HOA Board has retained legal counsel to draft specific language, which follows existing restrictions written in the Glenwood Green By-laws, regarding short term renting, such as AirBNB and Vrbo. A document was approved by the Board and will be distributed to the residents. The Community Rules & Regulations will be updated to include this language.
C. The Board voted to move forward on tree removal and replacement along the retaining wall just outside of the pool area. This is pending approval and permitting from the City.
D. Green pest control/mosquito service is being investigated for effectiveness.
