a very low score.
Lesley Studholme of Space
Coast Management submitted the manager’s reports for June and July time
periods. These reports consist of tracking non compliance issues
in Copperfield. The list of non compliance letters included 27 for
June but was substantially lower in July at 18. Many owners have
responded and the properties are either being worked on, completed or in
the attorney’s hands. The three properties that were turned
over to the attorney appear to be conforming at this time. Only 2
delinquent maintenance fees are seriously outstanding which are currently
under bank foreclosure.
ARC– Chris Brogan
indicated that there were 4 ARA’s for the May-July time period. All
4 have been completed. He then reported that 3 ARA’s were submitted
for the July/August time period. Two of the three have been
completed and one remains not completed.
Tom Loshe did submitted an ARCC report which represents the previous
month. This report is an integral part of these minutes.
Lesley asked the BOD if they
want the ARCC reports that Tom Loshe submits added to the web site.
The Board indicated that although they are public record, they should remain
with the documentation in the SCM office.
Ray McDermott –reported that
Leland removed the dead palm, stump and restored the landscape. Leland
had custom curbs fix a damaged curb resulting from the tree removal at
his cost. Ray made a motion to mulch the front since it has been
1 year. The contract with Southern Greens was $240.00. Blaise
seconded and all were in favor.
1811 Abbeyridge –Lynn Riley
– ARC Chairperson presented the original Lennar 99 floor plan book and
proposed that we provide this to the new buyer before she builds.
It was determined that the plans for the new construction will need to
be reviewed by the ARC and then the BOD will give final approval.
Lesley is to contact the buyer and provide her with the information so
she is aware of who to contact and what will be required.
NEW BUSINESS -
The Taffers who live
on Hedgerow presented concerns over their parking situation. They
park on the street but make every effort not to block ingress or egress.
They asked if overnight parking is permitted. The BOD stated that
the County governs the parking on streets and Copperfield does not have
any rules against overnight parking. Dogs were also discussed wherein
they were informed that all dogs must be leashed.
A letter was presented from
one of the homeowners stating that the property values are dropping in
Copperfield due to poor schooling. There was much discussion and
it was determined that schooling is not affecting any declining values
It was noted that there is
rust at the entrance which should be removed. It was also discussed
that with a decision to put in a well this will hinder water flow and create
more rust. Ray will look into have the entrance cleaned.
It was also noted that a
tree house is being constructed on Heather Stone. It was determined
that an ARA must be completed before any more construction continues.
Lesley will contact the owner with the information.
