Shannon Ridge E - News

Hi Members!
 Here’s the latest news:
 

1.  Q & A:  Off-road vehicles.  

Q:  4-wheelers and motorbikes create a nuisance; are they allowed?  

A:  Shannon Ridge is a restricted subdivision, not a track for off-road vehicles.  Operate them at a track outside our subdivision such as Cycle Ranch Motocross Park (wwwcycleranchmx.com), 2066 CR 405, Floresville, TX.  It is also illegal to operate any off-road vehicle, including golf carts, on the roads.  Report violations to the sheriff's department at 830-393-2535.

 

2.  Subdivision Restrictions.  A few months ago, we emailed to you the proposal below to give our community the ABILITY to change our restrictions.  If you haven’t already done so, please review it and email your feedback to me.  To date, only 69 owners have responded, 47 positively, 22 negatively.  Because of the costs involved, we can’t proceed with a formal vote on the proposal until we receive the support of at least two-thirds of our owners (267 of 400 owners).

 

3.  Thanks so much for your loyal support.  Special thanks to those who have sent in their membership checks for 2018.

 

God bless and have a Merry Christmas!

Proposal to give our community the ABILITY to change our restrictions

 

Although the developers neglected to give our community the ABILITY to change our own restrictions to suit our needs, a revision to the Texas property code allows us to do so only if two-thirds of our property owners approve the PROCEDURES for doing so.   Since few people would want to live in a state where the laws can’t be changed, we shouldn’t have to live in a subdivision where the restrictions can never be changed.  

 

After studying the law and the procedures other subdivisions use, we have drafted a proposal below for your consideration.  Please let me know if you can support the proposal or not.  If not, please list your objections.

 

This proposal doesn’t change the restrictions; it merely gives our community the ABILITY to do so.  

 

PROCEDURES TO CHANGE THE SUBDIVISION RESTRICTIONS

THE ESTATES AT SHANNON RIDGE

 

1.  To change the restrictions of The Estates at Shannon Ridge, two-thirds of the lot owners must approve based on one vote per lot.  If more than one person owns a lot, the intent of the majority shall determine the vote from that lot.

 

2.  A proposal to change the restrictions will trigger a vote by the lot owners when one of the following occurs:

 

     a. Two-thirds of the Board of Directors of The Estates at Shannon Ridge Homeowners Association (SRHOA) vote to support the proposal based on its merits and high likelihood of adoption; or

 

     b. Sponsors of the proposal provide to the board evidence of support from at least 30% of lot owners, and sponsors pay in advance to SRHOA all expenses involved in conducting the vote and changing the restrictions.

 

3.  When a vote to change the restrictions is triggered, the board will choose from among the voting methods allowed by current law (which may include voting in person, by mail, by electronic means, or a combination thereof) and conduct the vote.

 

4.  If two-thirds of the lot owners approve a proposal to change the restrictions, the board will file the appropriate documents in the real property records of Wilson

 County, Texas, binding all lots in the subdivision.

Hi Members!
 Here’s the latest news: 

 

1.  A few weeks ago, I emailed the proposal below to you to give our community the ability to change our restrictions.  If you haven’t already done so, please review it and email your feedback to me.  Because of the costs involved, we can’t proceed with a formal vote until we receive the support of an overwhelming number of owners.

 

2.  Donations for Sutherland Springs’ victims.  HEB is accepting cash-register donations Sutherland Springs’ victims and families.  Shoppers can ask their cashier to add amounts of $1, $3, $5, $50, or $100 straight into their grocery bill.  You can also donate to the church at ssfb.net.

 

3.  A Thanksgiving thank-you to our great residents who help keep Shannon Ridge such an attractive and peaceful neighborhood.  Have a great holiday!
