Gators and Grass!

Hi Neighbors,

Apologies as this update is a bit overdue.

Gators… Laura has the Gator Hotline engaged and the Gator(s) over 4 feet should be removed within 45 days. Please keep safety in mind first if you happen to catch a glimpse of our temporary resident(s)!

Grass… The lapse in mowing should be remedied starting Monday. Thank you to everyone for flagging this issue!

Randy Wise Homes Presentation

Thanks again to all who attended in person and virtually tonight. Extra thanks to the board members, current and former, who’ve worked hard to put this agreement together.

PLEASE vote-preferably for the agreement, but please vote. We need over half the owners to vote for the agreement, or RWH can essentially take action on Holes 6, 7, and 9 with no benefits to our ownership.

Please also talk to your neighbors to make sure they’re aware and planning to vote as well!

Homeowner Meeting Package!

Hi Neighbors,

In the mail you’ll be receiving a paper copy of the file below. It has what you need to know about the special meeting next Thursday, 10 June 2021. Please review and come prepared with questions. Even more importantly, please talk this up with your neighbors.

If we don’t get enough votes (over half of the owners) for the proposal, the most likely outcome is that RWH can and will move forward on Holes 6, 7, and 9 with our neighborhood getting zero benefit. This is likely our best and last bite at the apple to turn the golf courses into a win for our community.

Special Meeting – 10 June!

The Board of Directors and Randy Wise Homes will give a presentation to Magnolia Plantation owners on the recent agreement for the expansion of our community on the evening of June 10th.  The event will be held at Crosspoint, Bluewater Bay Campus at 6:00pm.  There will also be a Zoom web-link available for the meeting.  Mail outs will go to all residents starting next week, and will include a copy of the agreement as well as a proxy form for your vote.  Please familiarize yourself with the agreement ahead of time so that the meeting can be as productive as possible. We look forward to seeing you there! A digital copy of the agreement is posted here:

Magnolia Plantation Expansion

Friends and Neighbors,

Negotiations with Randy Wise Homes (RWH) concerning the expansion of Magnolia Plantation and the future usage of the fairways have concluded.  Thursday evening, at a special legal strategy meeting, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to accept the Expansion Agreement.  At the conclusion of our vote Randy Wise signed the agreement.

The next step is to submit the agreement to our owners for adoption.  In the next few weeks you’ll receive numerous documents outlining the agreement as well as proxies for your vote.  We’re also planning for an in-person information meeting, augmented with web options, where RWH and the board will present the plans and answer your questions.  We hope to complete the voting process over the next 5-6 weeks.

The vote tonight culminated years of often tumultuous negotiations, and secured the wins for our Association that we’ve briefed you on over the last months. We look forward to your participation as we move forward in this process.

Jack Knight, Vice President

Right Side Exit Gate Update

Hi Neighbors,

As you’ve noticed, the right-side exit gate to Highway 20 is currently down for repair. It will be open during guard hours, but closed and non-functional otherwise. The board is in the process of coordinating repairs.

Drive safe!

Bears!

Hi Neighbors, as you’ve probably heard, we have some new visitors in our neighborhood. The black bears are mostly interested in food sources, so please keep your trash cans inside or adequately secured (difficult to do versus a bear…). Please maintain awareness for your family and pets.

Announcements.

Hi Neighbors,

Here are a few announcements that you may like to know. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions and concerns. magnoliaplantationpoa@gmail.com

  1. A new Community Association Management company, Bluewater Association Management LLC, will be taking over for Edna Keefe shortly. We thank Edna for her years of service! Information will be flowing shortly about any changes in things like billing process, contact information, etc.
  2. Jim McDonald will be retiring from the board this Spring to move closer to family. We also thank him for his years of service.
  3. Volunteers are always needed. As we’ve all seen, there have been some great self-help volunteer projects this Spring. If you’re available and interested, please reach out to the Board. Currently, the board needs a volunteer to be on the “Fines” committee and to help with landscaping/planning. Please reach out if you’re interested.
  4. Damaged sign at the Bay Drive entrance. This weekend’s storms finally clobbered the Bay Drive sign. The board was previously planning on a replacement and is working on bids.

Have a great week and enjoy the Spring weather!

Upcoming Special Assessment

Hi Neighbors,

As you may have heard, at the Board of Directors meeting last Thursday, the Board approved a one-time $100 special assessment. It will be billed in two $50 increments during the last two quarters of the calendar year. The changes driving this assessment are:

  1. The previous landscape company resigned last fall and they have been replaced with one of the other contractors who submitted a competitive proposal last spring.   The change occurred after the budget was submitted for homeowner approval so we stated at the annual meeting that an assessment would be required to cover the additional cost.
  2. Edna resigned earlier this year, and all of the CAM companies we are considering are more expensive as well.

As a reminder, the budget workshop will be in August and will inform the budget for 2022. Residents are encouraged to participate.
