The Board of Directors met last night at the Friendly Fox. Thank you to the directors and guests who attended!
It was a productive meeting! Here is a link to the minutes, which will be officially approved at our July meeting.
The biggest topic of discussion was the Block Party on August 10th.There will be small committees in charge of various aspects of the Block Party. Would you like to volunteer to help that day or help on a committee? Read the committee report here and then contact us at Southwood_Park@yahoo.com!
Past meetings and reports are available on the blog page under “Association Information”.
The Carpe Diem charter school was originally expected to open at the Summit campus this fall. That has now been pushed back to 2014.
It looks like the weather will hold, so Dirt Day will be this Saturday, May 4th. There will be two locations: Crestwood at Sunset; and South Wayne at Maple Grove. If needed, the rain date will be May 11th.
Southwood Park has purchased quality soil for residents’ use for more than two decades. It is a spring ritual for our gardeners! We purchase high quality tri-mix soil from Felger’s. It is suitable for yards, garden beds, and pots.
So get your soil for Mother’s Day planting this Saturday! We would like the drop sites to be emptied quickly.
Please take what you need, but don’t be a dirt hog. And while we shouldn’t have to say this, we will anyway: the soil is for current-on-dues Historic Southwood Park residents only! Please don’t drive through the soil, block traffic or dump any soil or clay from your yard at the drop sites.
Southwood Park residents are invited to join with neighbors for the Spring Beautification Day on April 7th.
We will meet at 1PM at the Roundabout and tidy up and mulch the various pocket gardens in the neighborhood. Bring some work gloves, a water bottle, and a friend or family member to help. Everything should be completed by 3PM.
We hope to see you then. Thanks!
2013 Historic Southwood Park Neighborhood Association yearly invoices and Board of Director ballots were mailed January 22nd.
Under the Amended Restrictions and Covenants approved by Allen Circuit Court in 2006, each home in Southwood Park and Westover Place is subject to an annual maintenance fee. All such fees are payable on a calendar year basis. If not paid, they become a lien against the real estate, together with 6% interest, attorney fees, and other costs of collection. Simple translation: the dues are mandatory. If you procrastinate, the costs will increase.
This year’s amount is $38.50, due on February 15, 2013. The vast majority of homeowners in the Association are diligent about making payments. Thank you!
If you owe for more than one year, the mailed invoice will show the correct amount. If you do not receive your mailing within a week’s time, we need to talk. It could be something as simple as the Association not having your forwarding address.
Also included in the mailing is a ballot for the 2013 Board of Directors election. Three Directors will be elected to three year terms. One will be elected to fill a one-year vacancy. Please read the candidates statements and vote for five. There is also a space for you to send us your concerns that the Association should address this year. Ballots are due February 9th.
Both the ballot and invoice can be mailed in the same envelope to save postage. Questions? Email: Southwood_Park@yahoo.com.
