HELLO GREENWOOD POINT NEIGHBORS! NEWS 1. Monthly Meeting. The GPHOA board held their monthly meeting on 8/28/22 at the Greenwood Point Beach Park. The June 2022 minutes were reviewed and approved previously via email. There was no July HOA meeting due to busy summer vacation schedules. 2. Beach Park. Maintenance continued at the beach park, with the last of the fence planks replaced on the water side. In addition, in late July it was discovered that the sprinkler system had been turned off and the lawn suffered heavily. As a result, when the system was reactivated the lawn watering times were increased to 20 minutes every other night. Please don't change the sprinkler settings--if you're concerned about wet grass, note that watering takes place at 2:30AM and should be dry before any planned events. Additional rehabilitation of the grass may be required. Also, Chuck Klein and several helpers have been kindly cutting and removing the milfoil weed growing in the swimming area (thank you, Chuck and friends). No one likes swimming in that stuff. 3. Greenwood Point Beach Park Get-Togethers. Trivia Night on July 22nd had about 10 people participating, and Movie Night on July 30th had about 15. Thanks again to the Schilchers for organizing these fun events! The next planned event is Santa At The Beach. Watch your email and the Greenwood Point Facebook Group for future event announcements. 4. Signs. The "SLOW - CHILDREN AT PLAY" signs that went missing when the mailbox stands were replaced have been located and reinstalled by Roy Cress. In addition, with the kind help of Dianne Nicholson, we are procuring an additional eight (8) signs to supplement the existing seven (7) in an effort to encourage drivers to be aware of kids and drive safely. Please be careful and watch your speed when traversing the neighborhood. 5. Crosswalks, Speed Bumps and Other Speed Control Measures. It was recently noted that South Cove had acquired several cross walks. After some inquiries it was made clear that the City of Issaquah installed these crosswalks as part of a 10-year improvement plan for all of the South Lake Sammamish area, including the replacement/upgrades to the water mains (replacing old concrete with copper), repaving and replacement of sidewalks and curbs. They are only a couple years into this plan. The board, with the help of Dianne Nicholson, is inquiring with the city if better speed control measures can be put in place, particularly along 188th Ave SE and SE 43 St. These could include crosswalks, speed bumps, speed display signs, and similar features. The board has heard your concerns about excessive vehicle speeds and welcomes your ideas on how to keep drivers at or below the speed limits. 6. Landscaping Along 188th Ave SE. The board continues discussing options for re-landscaping along the East side of 188th Ave SE. Meerwood and South Cove have agreed to share improvement costs. If anyone has ideas on durable greenery that would do well with minimal maintenance, not be invasive, please send a note to one of the board members. A request for a proposal and rough quote has been made to a local landscaping company to get an idea of the cost of this improvement. PLEASE ENJOY YOUR BEACH PARK. Your HOA membership includes access to Lake Sammamish via the beach park and there's a beautiful lawn, shade, picnic tables, a kids play area, swimming area, and BBQ facilities available. You should have a key to permit entry. If not, contact a board member for replacement. GREENWOOD POINT FACEBOOK GROUP. Though not affiliated with the GPHOA, there is a private Greenwood Point Facebook group you might be interested in joining. Neighborhood happenings and communications may be found here. The link is: . UPCOMING EVENTS - Santa At The Beach, Dec 2022 REMINDERS 1. If you have a home modification in mind, please obtain a form and submit to the A.C.C. for review. Submissions can either be mailed through USPS to the address on the form, or they can be scanned and emailed to the GPHOA at The forms are available at 2. Please remember to clean up after your pet when walking the area. 3. If you have an interest in taking a more active role in our neighborhood, the HOA committees are a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors and the area and usually only need a couple hours a month. Retirees are especially welcome. Students get community service credit too! You may join any committee, but here's where we need immediate help: - The Maintenance Committee needs a couple folks to help coordinate keeping our signage, landscaping, green belt and hardscaping (like mailboxes) in good working order. If we aren't able to find volunteers, we may have to hire a maintenance company and those costs will have to be carried by the GPHOA budget. · The Architectural Control Committee (ACC), which reviews design, remodel and related plans, is turning over membership and seeking new support · Kelly needs help on the Social Committee, particularly, if you have an aptitude for arranging events and fun activities, please reach out! CLOSING Thank you for your interest in our neighborhood association. As always, if you have questions, concerns, suggestions, would like to help, or just say hello, please respond to this email. Cheers! Jim Cotton 2022 GPHOA President
