Shannon Ridge E - News

 

 

November 8, 2017


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!

PROPOSAL to give our community the ABILITY to change our restrictions:

 

As I explained in a previous newsletter, the developers neglected to provide a way for our community to change our own restrictions to suit our needs.  Since few people would want to live in a community where the laws can’t be changed, we shouldn’t have to live in a subdivision where the restrictions can’t be changed. 

 

Thankfully, the Texas property code gives our community the ability to change our restrictions if two-thirds of our property owners approve the procedures for doing so. 

 

After studying the law and the procedures other subdivisions use, we have drafted a proposal below for your consideration.  We hope we can count on your support.

 

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

 

Please let me know if you can support the proposal or not.  If not, please list your objections.  Only after we have received overwhelming support for the proposal will we proceed with a formal vote because of the costs involved.   Then, if two-thirds of our owners approve, our community will have the ability to change our restrictions. 

 

To recap, our community needs to do what the developers should have done in the first place:  establish procedures to enable our community to change our restrictions to suit our needs.

 

God bless and thanks so much for your support!

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.  Vehicles vs. deer.  Here are a few tips to avoid injuring or killing them and incurring costly repairs to your vehicle.

 

  - Follow the 30-mph speed limit.

 

  -If you see a deer, immediately slow way down and look for others since they are herd animals.  Be prepared to stop since they can panic and dart in front of or kamikaze into the side of your vehicle.

 

  - Don't tailgate and be prepared to slow down or stop when following another vehicle as they may spot danger before you do.

 

2.  Shannon Ridge HOA Meeting/Election, Saturday, December 9, 2 PM, 897 Paddy Rd.  To vote you need to be a member.  We recommend members vote to return the following to the board:  President: Ken Costa; Vice President: Tom Segura; Treasurer: John Turner; Secretary: Tony Garanzuay, Parliamentarian:  Donna Nordstrom, and Area Reps 1-6: Pedro Morales, Leonard Ruiz, Debra Higgins, Samuel Cardenas, Patrick Hutzler, and Susan McCarthy.  If you can attend, please let me know and bring a comfortable chair.  If you want to be a candidate for an office, please let me know by November 28 so we can add your name to the ballot.

 

3.  Many thanks to those who helped make Halloween such a success for our kids.

 

4.  Veterans Day salute!  We salute all of our veterans and their families for their dedicated service and sacrifice for our country.

 

God bless and thanks so much for your support!
