Public meeting notice
A few months ago, a directional median was installed at the west entrances of Riverside and Sanctuary along 419. The traffic study and data supported this as effectively being "as safe as a traffic light", without the significant impact to CR-419 traffic and the large cost. The LORHOA has attended prior meetings and remains in opposition to the originally discussed traffic light. In those meetings, the County promised to follow up with post-installation traffic data to determine if the median is sufficient, and whether it would be made permanent. Or, if a light was necessary. This second meeting occurred Feb 12th, 2015.
The County presented its data demonstrating the success of the improvement, as there were no targeted crash types since its installation. Thus, the County recommended the installation of a permanent median improvement (like what is at the Bank of America/McDonalds on Mitchell Hammock. Funding had already been allocated. During and after the presentation, some Riverside residents strongly challenged the validity of the properly collected data, and were vocally displeased with the recommendation. As a result, the County decided to: hire a consulting firm to collect more data, and postponed other action. Other improvement opportunities for the Partin/LCMS/419 intersection were brainstormed and shall be investigated. Another meeting is to be scheduled.

Rules and Regulations
The Q3 Community letter referenced the May 2013 Rules and Regulations workshops. In that notice and also posted here, the entire community was invited to give input to the Rules and Regulations (change, keep the same, or tweak). Several people emailed in their input -- THANKS ! The workshop on October 4th, 2014 went well with further changes proposed. At the workshop, it was discussed that the Rules is currently a cumbersome tool, as they also include ARC guidelines, which are not actually Rules. The Covenants do allow for a separate ARC Guidelines document. ARC Guidelines were developed and approved at the November 2014 Meeting. The Rules went out for attorney review, and the changes were incorporated and are to approved for mailing at the January meeting. Please read both of these documents in tandem.
- The ARC GUIDELINES, are for new or replacement projects -- this was adopted at the November meeting
- The Rules and Regulations are for the maintenance, upkeep of existing projects, as well as the general Rules and the HOA -- this has been to two separate attorney reviews, and will be requested to be approved for mailing at the January meeting
After the January meeting, the Rules and Regulations shall be mailed to all Lots to allow the Membership to review them (although you can get a head start right here!). This 30 day review period is a Statutory requirement. At the March meeting, an up/down, no changes vote will be taken. So Members can NOT come to the March meeting and request a change. Board members can NOT "throw one more thing in" either. Basically, the Board must vote on the tablet that has already been etched, which is why we have labored over the past several months to ensure that everyone has had AMPLE time and opportunity to submit their input. Thank you for your understanding.
