Re: September, 2018 Muirfield HOA Board of Directors Meeting
From Bob Fathman, President, & Walter Zeier, General Manager
Here are a few matters covered at our meeting last week:
The Design Control Committee has reviewed 405 applications to date this year, with 92% of the plans approved by second submission. The biggest reasons for failure on first submission is simply not supplying enough detail. Include dimensions, or paint samples or landscape materials to be used. If replacing one window, it has to look like the original or like the others in the home.
The Grounds and Facilities Committee requested that the Board install a bench with a plaque memorializing long time G & F member Lou Burns who passed away recently, and his widow, Marilyn, who has served not only for 8 years on G & F but also on the Board of Directors in the past, The suggestion was welcomed and approved. A bench with a plaque in their names will soon be installed at the new pollinator garden near the North Pool, a fitting location given their dedication to enhancing our grounds.
G & F Chair Pam Ellenger also obtained Board approval to survey residents on pool operations over the past summer.
Muirfield Social Activities Chair Ray DiRossi reviewed the very successful fishing derby and plans to repeat that next summer. He also detailed plans and budget for two "Breakfasts with Santa" coming up in December at The Country Club and Muirfield Village. A well attended event for Muirfield Empty Nesters, a wine tasting, has recently occured, with a potluck dinner at the Leatherlips Yacht Club coming up next month, and a cooking school in February, all organized by Empty Nester Chair Charlie McDowell and Committee.
General Manager Walter Zeier reported that construction approval has now been granted for homes on 11 of the 18 lots in the Stansbury neighborhood, the former Buckner Farm. Design Control Committee member John Reiner said that the quality of the homes going up there far exceeds the quality features, or lack of, in some other developing neighborhoods in Dublin, thanks to Muirfield's standards and the DCC standing firm for those.
Muirfield Civic Action Committee Chair Bob Fathman [who also is Board President] reported on that group's actions to increase voting and to give residents added information beyond what is on the ballot. He also reported on plans to meet with the new owner of Corazon, and about continuing efforts to alert residents to road closures in Dublin.
Over 100 of your Muirfield neighbors participate in the various Committees and Boards in our great community, enhancing life for all of us who live here. We are grateful to them and to our staff for their time and talents.
