November 2019 Newsletter
The Annual Meeting of the HOA is set for Tuesday, December 3. This is required by our Declaration and By-Laws. You’ll want to make sure to attend this meeting. Not only is the voting done at this meeting for three expired Board positions, but you’ll hear updates for what’s been happening all year as well as plans for 2020 and beyond.
You will be receiving a packet in the mail with the agenda, budget for 2020 and other information soon. Be sure to consider filling out and submitting the proxy form if you are not able to attend the meeting. This is important as we need representation and voting from a majority (95 units) in order to officially validate the results of the election and other business conducted at the meeting.
Note: There will be NO regular Board Meeting in November. The Annual Meeting replaces this meeting.
Hope you’re enjoying our new walkway and access gate directly to the interim BeltLine trail! Please remember to watch your step as the path down is rough. Keycode is saved on the website for residents.
As far as the permanent BeltLine development for our trail portion, everyone is still waiting for word on the BUILD grant – according the its website they’ll award by November 12! Should the grant money materialize, construction on that section must begin by late 2021. HERE is the latest presentation from the BeltLine from 10/24.
Winter Party The Committee has decided on a Winter Progressive Cocktail Party with a party in the Clubhouse to follow. What a creative idea! Set for December 7.
Plans are in the making – you can join the planning fun at thenext meeting of the Social Committee: Monday evening, November 11 at 6:30 pm in the Clubhouse.
And the committee is looking for a few hosts to open their units for the progressive cocktail party. Interested in hosting? Contact Laura Hedelson, chair, for details: email@example.com.
Atlanta Food Bank Can-A-Thon: Sponsored by the Social Committee, Glenwood Green will again take part in the Annual Can-A-Thon. This was quite successful last year – our residents donated two full crates of food totalling 176 pounds. The spirit of giving is alive and well at GG!
Boxes will be placed with one outside and one inside the clubhouse. Please donate non-perishable foods. See the list of most needed items and also the non-acceptable ones on the boxes and the poster. We’ll deliver to the Food Bank in time for Thanksgiving. Share a bit of your holidays with our neighbors!
GG Projects Underway – Roof Project/Tree Trimming/Landscaping
The Roofing Project is expected to conclude this next Wednesday (weather permitting). November 13. Your patience, cooperation and support has been much appreciated! Next up within the next few weeks: Much needed tree trimming to start November 18. New roofs need to be cleared of any overhanging, touching branches (which will include trimming in back yards). And we’ll be working along the back fence line (outside the fence, on the South side of our property) as well as along the Dog Park/Western Boundary. We’ll be clearning bush as well as trees, including removal of some invasive or leaning trees. And our delayed Fall Landscaping Installation will also commence soon.
Our renewals continue, making a brighter, cleaner, more attractive (and value-added) Glenwood Green!
Holiday Safety Suggestions
This might be a good time to remind ourselves that with the holidays coming up, package thieves will be in abundance.
Please know who you are letting tailgate you in – they can easily grab package deliveries at your doors that will be in abundance starting with Black Friday deliveries and through the holidays. And also be alert to who you let into the clubhouse – the bins and probably even the floors will also abound with packages. You may think it kind to be courteous to that person who is waiting at the call box or the clubhouse door – but the kindest thing you can do is help keep our neighbors’ safe from thieves.
It doesn’t hurt to ask. I typically engage them in conversation with “Can I help” and ask their unit number or where they are headed – residents and visitors alike will understand your concern and appreciate your diligence. And remember, if you see something questionable, say something: the Atlanta Police encourage us to call them. This may just lead to an emerging pattern of activity in our neighborhood that can be averted.
See you all at the Holiday Party and the Annual Meeting!
