The regular monthly meeting of the Orchard Knolls Homeowners Association (hereinafter OKHA) was called to order at 7:30pm on December 10th by Richard Schinner, President.
A Motion was made, seconded and passed approving the Minutes of the November OKHA Board Meeting with a few minor clerical corrections.
IV. NEW BUSINESS
Upon further discussion, the Board acknowledged three current members of the ARC: Jeff Purdy, Ed Abrams and Reardon Sullivan and reserved question about how and when Mr. Beiter removed himself from the ARC committee.
John Beiter explained the process he followed to obtain Montgomery County permit; by obtaining the signature of one ARC committee member and proceeding to MC for a permit, which was granted.
The Board has received a number of complaints about the size, location and permanency of the shed, which led to the discussion. ARC member Ed Abrams described his understanding of the process, with emphasis on previous situations. Homeowner Jerry Way provided his perspectives and concerns primarily as a neighbor, and secondarily as a past member of the Board and ARC.
The Board discussed some of the changes that had been made previously in the ARC review process and will consider additional changes to the ARC procedures.
After lengthy discussion, the Board voted to bring the matter to the attention of MC, asking for an evaluation of the permit in light of the dimensions and location of the nearly completed shed with regard to property boundaries, setback and wetland restrictions.
Upon receipt of MC review, the Board will consider appropriate steps.
The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be held at Secretary Frankís home (15630 Blackberry Drive) on Monday, January 14th at 730pm. All property owners are welcome to attend any OKHA Board of Directors Meeting. Your input, via telephone, letter or email is always welcome as well.
There being no further business, the Board Meeting adjourned at 9:45pm
