The following is the current status of the painting project (March 15, 2019):

1. All homes have been inspected.

2. There is a tentative plan to begin the painting project in early May.

This does not leave much time to complete siding repairs. If you are plan on using your own contractor, please submit a fully completed architecture request form as soon as possible. Failing to submit a completed form may delay your home repair. Homeowners who do not submit a fully completed architecture request form and allow their contractors to complete repairs without Board approval will face fines and the repairs might need to be redone. Again, there is a Board meeting next week and another meeting on April 18. The architecture request form is located on the Documents page (General section).

You do not need to complete a architecture request form is you contract with Ekim construction.

For the past year or longer, the Board has been working on plans to replace the monument signs at the entrances of Copper Peak and Shelby Creek. Taking a step back, the original monuments were damaged by dry rot, termites, and time. We learned about the condition of the monuments at the conclusion of the painting project.
