Notice of Timberline HOA Special Meeting Monday February 10, 2020 @ 7 p.m. Blackwell Elementary School

This will be a special meeting to vote to increase our annual assessments. Proposed increase is $10/mo. per member (household/homeowner). This increase will enable us to pursue the employment of a management service, as well as to accrue needed funds for long-overdue projects (e.g., front entry refresh and common area maintenance). A quorum of 60% of members is required. Ample discussion time will be provided prior to vote. At our 2019 Annual Meeting those in attendance were extremely favorable to pursue this action.
Your Board of Trustees believes this to be a critical matter for the long-term health, beauty, and desirability of our community. With our extremely low dues we hardly have the funds for the continued maintenance of our neighborhood. However, unexpected expenses and much-needed improvements are unfeasible. The fallen trees and branches brought by recent winds is a good example of a concern we cannot address adequately. Furthermore, the expertise required to navigate complex issues and concerns within our neighborhood are beyond the scope of a group of volunteers. In recent years it has been difficult to even fill an active Board. Annual dues in other local neighborhoods similar to ours are often 3-5 times more. We are suggesting merely $10/mo. increase per household and believe this will be sufficient to address growing concerns. Please attend this important meeting. If we fail to reach quorum we will suspend the vote, but we will continue the discussion and have ample time for Q&A. If you cannot be present please inquire about proxy options at timberlinecc.org.

TCC Annual Meeting Recap

Thank you to all Timberline neighbors who attended last night’s Annual Meeting, and to those who signed proxies.
We easily exceeded quorum and unanimously approved a Board of Trustees (who will also serve as officers in 2020):
Ben Coffin (president)
Paul Tedrow (Vice President)
Lori Bauermeister (Secretary/Treasurer).
Thank you also for the engaging and encouraging discussion about the potential to vote to increase our dues (perhaps $10/mo.) which would enable us to pursue the employment of a management service, as well as to accrue needed funds for long-overdue projects like the front entry refresh and common area maintenance. I would summarize the overwhelming response as “yes, it is time.” However, this would require a 60% quorum 2/3 approval vote at a special meeting duly called for this purpose. Watch for more info from the board in early 2020 and until then, continue the conversation with one another! Finally, thank you to everyone who serves our neighborhood in any capacity, and to those who volunteered last evening to be more involved in the coming year! Myself, or another board or committee member, will be in touch. If you were unable to attend last night we will post minutes to our website soon. You can also send an email to timberlinecc@live.com with any questions and/or to volunteer.
Sincerely, and with gratitude for the opportunity to serve,
Ben Coffin (trustee and president)

Timberline Forest Restoration Project Plan

As many of you may have noticed, some parts of our forested open spaces have been invaded by non-native plants. This is not good for the health of our forests and the wildlife that rely on native plants. The homeowners association has paid a consultant to update the Forest Stewardship Plan created in 1994, and is in the process of securing funding for the project. We will also be organizing restoration events for neighbor volunteers to help remove the noxious weeds and plant native species in their place.   The highlights of the restoration plan are available here

Sahalee Widening Project

Someone from the city’s Public Works department is going to attend TCC’s board meeting next week to give us an overview of the Sahalee project and answer any questions we have. Our idea is that we can collect questions from TCC members and post the answers after the meeting. Please submit your questions via the comments button.

Secretary For Timberline Homeowners Association Board

 

The position of secretary for our HOA in Timberline is a great way to volunteer within your community!  The job requires a maximum time commitment of 2 to 2 ½ hours a month.  As secretary, your job will be to record the minutes (or take notes) at monthly board meetings which will be posted on the Timberline CC website.  On occasion you will be required to sign checks, assist the president and vice president with the creation of meeting agendas, and attend the end-of-year general membership meeting.  This position is an easy way to get to know your community a little better.
