Peachtree Corners Overlay District & Gwinnett County Unified Plan Discussed benefits of overlay plan. Jeanne will post article to forum and add to newsletter. If there is an interest, UPCCA has indicated they can do a presentation to the community. Community input needed to Gwinnett BOC to help get this passed.

Process and standards for obtaining bids and awarding contracts for projects - BOD will develop and communicate to the community.

Issues at entry

  • Irrigation System & Lighting - Lara Foreman has collected bids for these jobs. We had 3 bids for irrigation, 2 for lighting. The bids were competitive. Only one lighting contractor was licensed, Henson Irrigation. He also does irrigation. It makes sense to combine the two into a single project. Lara has worked with Henson Irrigation several times in the past. She will check references. If all is well, we will award the bid to Henson. If he can locate the conduit running under Avocet drive at the entry connecting both systems, the price will be $6,200. Otherwise, it will cost an additional $1,200. The combined CRA budget for both projects is $7,500, so we will be under budget.
  • Landscape Plan - Lara & Jeanne will be working together to develop the plan for the entry. The BOD will also obtain bids on cleaning and painting the fence along SOP and part way up Lou Ivey. This will require permission from the homeowners. Rob Hiller has agreed to submit a bid for this.

Landscape issues

  • Process to review bids/interview prospects - Dave Spanjers and Jeanne Aulbach will coordinate.
  • Need to do one time cleanup - Lara is working with Precision Landscape on this schedule.

Fox issues - Foe now, no action required.

Volunteer help for lighting - David Todd willing to install. BOD has approved.

Key lock box installed at clubhouse - additional sets of keys made, one for Julie, one for lockbox and one spare.

Requested BOD notification on closings to a) update directory and b) begin working on welcome process. Heritage has begun to send these.

2006 audit - Contract approved. Jeanne to sign & return.

The BOD approved $200 to replace the thermostats in the clubhouse with digital themostats that can be set to run automatically. Sean has volunteered to install, Rob Hiller has offered to assist.

The police were called to the clubhouse late Thanksgiving night. Apparently, a group of teenagers were in the clubhouse bathrooms and hallway. Two cars were escorted off of the property by the police. Another car apparently belonged to a resident.

Next meeting - January 9 - tentative due to Sean Bennett's work schedule.
