Just How Important Is It That You Attend A Board Meeting?

 

If you've never attended a Board of Directors meeting then you are not taking advantage of your right to observe and participate in the decision-making process that protects, preserves and enhances your community's assets and, ultimately, your property values.

 

If you really understood what kind of business is conducted at a Board meeting, and the important role that you, as a homeowner, play in making those decisions, then you just might change your mind and chose to attend a meeting. Most of the business decisions made at a board meeting have a direct impact on the property values of our community. Decisions regarding association maintenance items are the most common.

Some decisions have an indirect effect, such as decisions regarding rules and regulations and financial operations. But whether they affect property values directly or indirectly, they all have some impact on the Homeowners Open Forum, where homeowners (like you!) can address the Board with your ideas, comments and/or suggestions pertaining to our community. During the Homeowners Open Forum, homeowners are permitted to address the Board for a limited time period.

An important point to remember is that although important issues may be brought to the Board’s attention during Open Forum, don't expect the Board to act on these issues at this time. Many issues are turned over to management for research and to determine the options available for dealing with the issues. The more prepared the Board is before making a decision, the better the decision will be.

 

Isn't it time you recognized how important it is too?

 

It’s important to recognize that all of these projects are coordinated by volunteer board members and fellow homeowners who care about our community – that’s how homeowner associations work - so we always appreciate the positive feedback received by so many of you as we work to make Coral Trace a wonderful place to live. Together with everyone’s support, we can create a safe, attractive and harmonious community based on caring, respect and civility for all!

 

Please mark your calendar to attend the next monthly board meeting on January 21, 2019

@ 7:00 pm in the clubhouse.

 

We hope to see YOU there!

 

Your Coral Trace HOA Board of Directors

From the Coral Trace COP (Citizens Observer Patrol) - John Mitchell

 

Our (Citizens on Patrol) COPs are again providing security patrols in our Delray Beach patrol cars, and there are openings for those who want to help the community. We need more community involvement… interested residents are invited to join. We have made a meaningful impact in lowering the crime rate in our community with this effort, and will do better with even more coverage.

There are a few things that our residents can do to help:

1.  KEEP YOUR OUTSIDE LIGHTS ON AT NIGHT. That will help our COPs who patrol after dark see your home’s front and side better, and deter criminals.

2.  LOCK YOUR CARS and KEEP GARAGE DOORS CLOSED and LOCKED. This way your belongings will not walk away.

3. DO NOT PARK ON THE STREETS. Many residents park on the streets, especially at night which is against our community's rules. Doing this impedes the emergency vehicles that respond to calls for help. Every unit has room for 3 cars — a garage and a 2 car driveway. Use these spaces, not the streets. Request that your service personnel (maid, pest control, etc.) use your driveway or guest spots.

4.  DO NOT use GUEST parking spaces yourself.

5. OBEY the STOP SIGNS! There are near misses occurring frequently because of vehicles not stopping.

6. Do not obstruct the sidewalks with anything, especially your vehicles. The police will ticket cars that block the sidewalk.

7. Be advised that the Delray Beach Police Department are issuing tickets for these traffic infractions.
