Fall Newsletter, October, 2016

I plan to officially resign from the Board, effective October 25, 2016, after the Annual HOA Meeting. It has been a pleasure working with and for you for 9 years. I feel we have really accomplished many good things for our neighborhood, probably more than any other Board has done in the past. To name a few: irrigation wells, stop and yield signs, dog stations, street repairs, dumpster program, street cleaning program, movie night, lighting improvements at the entrances (with new lights to come at the Torrington Dr W & Central Park entranceway), holiday lighting and IT/Communication improvements for our website. I really am proud of all that this Board has done as a team, working with each other. I want to thank Larry Butske, especially, for being the guy who likes to “do stuff.” He wants things done, and done right. Thanks to Jon Mastny, for his long tenure as Treasurer. Thanks to Pete Holcombe, for bringing more formality and organization to the meetings. Thanks to Mark Kimmell and his wife Jackie, for launching the movie night for the kids. Thanks to Mark and Shamik Thakore for delving into our IT communication system and making necessary improvements. Again, my thanks go out to all of you. I wish you continued success in all that you do.

I wish to welcome the new residents who have moved into our subdivision over the Spring and Summer. We are glad that you have chosen Fairways West as your new home. Please try to squeeze in some spare time to help the Board by volunteering to serve on a committee.

I hope more residents attend our Annual Meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 7 pm, Canton Administration Building. We need much more participation and input to keep our HOA vibrant and creative. We want ours to be a neighborhood that is attractive to all Canton newcomers.

As a final note, NOW would be a good time to trim the trees between your curb and sidewalk. There is supposed to be a 7 foot clearance between the sidewalk and the tree leaves. Many tree branches and leaves are hanging too low for people to enjoy a relaxing walk. Also note, curbside pick-up of yard waste will end Thursday, December 2 and will not resume until April, 2017.
