Dear Northbridge Homeowners,
If you have already submitted your vote on the recent amendment - thank you! I am reaching out to encourage each homeowner to respond to the Fence Amendment that was mailed in early September. The documentation was sent to each homeowner along with the announcement for this evening's NB HOA Open Meeting, and it included a self-addressed stamped envelope. It should only take a few moments to read the letter and the actual amendment and to indicate your vote and return it to the board through Foster Premier (our property management company).
The challenges on this topic existed even before the developer turned over the subdivision to the homeowners some 11 years ago. Even if you already have a fence, or perhaps do not desire a fence, this amendment is still important to the HOA as a whole and it is especially important to any homeowners that may prefer an aluminum fence over a western red cedar shadow-box fence. Passing any amendment requires almost complete engagement of every homeowner. A successful amendment requires 75% of all homeowners to vote in favor of it. This is an exceptionally high bar, and if we desire a subdivision where changes and adaptations are desired, then each homeowner must participate - even if they are not particularly passionate about the issue at hand.
If you are unable to locate your amendment paperwork, please contact Linda Rauum @ Foster Premier (847-459-1222 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will resend the required paperwork. Alternatively, you may also submit your vote at tonight's HOA meeting, see the post immediately below for the details.
