Environmental Officer – Kim Watkins

If anyone would like to be appointed to the Board please let us know. The more the merrier!

Thank You!

The Board would like to thank all the members that attended the annual meeting on 6/11 and for all that expressed support for the Board. It is very gratifying to hear kind words and, even more importantly, we were appreciative of the input from the members. The cordial exchange of ideas will only benefit all as we move forward to keep Peyton Pines the great neighborhood it is.

Proxy Form

We hope that all can make the annual meeting on June 11th at the Cowboy Church, but if you need a proxy form, please email the board and one will be emailed to you. Keep in mind that the person granting the proxy must be an active member of the HOA. Email the board at board@peytonpines.org.

BIOS for Proposed Board Members

The nominating committee received only the names of two members volunteering to be elected to the board at the June 11th meeting; therefore, these two are officially nominated to run for the vacant positions. Nominations may be made from the floor at the annual meeting; however, only these two names will be on the printed ballots. For your information, their bios are included below. We hope to see all members at the meeting on June 11th.

Kim Watkins:

I have lived in Peyton Pines for over 20 years and served as Treasurer for the Water Board.  I have been an active part of the community thru school, sporting and church service and believe I can continue to add value through service to the board and our community. 

For the last year I have served on the PPHOA Board as secretary and environmental officer. I believe that my time serving on the PPHOA board proves my dedication to the community and my support to this board by seeing that the needs and requirements of the HOA are addressed.

CAROLYN A. PAYTON:

Jim and I moved to Peyton Pines in September 2017. I had spent 40 years as a realtor.  My specialty was property management of single family homes and 3 large HOA properties. A part of my duties included a seat on the different boards as a non-voting member. This enabled me to offer the best assistance to the homeowners before by avoiding problems with the bylaws and or covenants. It was a challenging and rewarding time for all.

 In June 2018 I was elected to the board, in an emergency, to serve for one year. I enjoy working with others for a common goal. I am asking you to vote for me to represent you  —–PAYTON for PEYTON PINES HOA.

Peyton Pines HOA Annual Membership and Board Meeting

The Peyton Pines HOA Annual Membership and Board meeting will be held Tuesday, June 11th, at 6:30pm at the Peyton Cowboy Church, 15504 Bradshaw Rd.  We will address several old and new topics and elect members to the HOA Board.  All Peyton Pines residents are strongly encouraged to attend to ensure your voices are heard.

In addition to the election of officers, we will discuss the following topics:

  • Summary of Board actions over the last year
  • Increasing the HOA dues and making them mandatory
  • Information received for the law firm representing the HOA
  • Information gathered on the bridle easement issue and options

Finally, we need to fill three positions on the HOA Board.  Brooks Myers and Debbie DeBaun were elected to 3-year terms at last year’s membership meeting.  Because Kim Watkins, Carol Payton and Wayne Boote were elected via a special election their terms are up at this year’s membership meeting.  We would like to encourage anyone who would like to help shape the direction the HOA takes over the next several years to send a bio to board@peytonpines.org.  We would especially like to encourage members from across the fillings to volunteer—three of the current Board members live within several hundred yards of each other in Filing 4.  The nominating committee will review the bios and post them to the HOA website prior to the membership meeting.  HOA members can also volunteer to run for election at the membership meeting even if they haven’t submitted a bio prior to the meeting.

We will post a detailed agenda in the coming weeks; if you have a topic you’d like to address please send an e-mail to board@peytonpines.org summarizing the issue.

 Please plan to attend this very important meeting—your voice matters.

Preparation for Annual Meeting

Our annual Membership meeting is fast approaching (June 11).  Per Article III, Section 3 of the HOA bylaws the Board must establish a nominating committee to select and nominate HOA members who would like to run for a position on the Board.  Brooks Myers, HOA President, and Carol Payton, HOA Board member, will be on the nominating committee, but we’d like to get additional members from the HOA.  Duties will include helping to write the request for volunteers to run for positions on the Board, reviewing biographies of those who run for Board positions, and helping the Board conduct the vote during the Membership meeting.  

We are asking that everyone consider serving on the HOA Board.  The HOA serves the community at large and all lot owners benefit as the Board tries its best to protect property values here in Peyton Pines.  Please consider running for election to serve on the Board.  All of us have busy lives with work and families and just day-to-day living.  With a full board, the work can be spread out as we work as a team.  Hopefully, you have seen that the current board is working hard and is dedicated to transparency and the past conflicts have been abated or at least calmed down.  We want all to work towards a tranquil and protected neighborhood, so please step up and volunteer.  Please consider the words of Helen Keller:  “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” 

If you are interested in serving on the nominating committee or on the Board, or if you have any questions please e-mail the Board at board@peytonpines.org by 8 May.”

REVIEW AND ACCEPTANCE OF MINUTES FROM LAST MEETING
Approved

  •  PRESIDENTS REPORT – Brooks Myers Reported

Accomplishments:

  • Board has settled into a routine and established internal operating procedures
  • We have mailed out letters to one lot owner who is in violation of existing covenants.  Legal action will be taken on the complaint. 
  • We have an attorney’s office (Orten, Cavangh, and Holmes) on retainer to address some of our more pressing such as the bridle easements, what rules/regulations apply to our HOA given our voluntary dues, concerns about the HOA-owned property, Mineral Rights.  We will work primarily with one of their associates who is comparatively inexpensive ($210/hr)
  • We established a committee to look into the bridle easement issue.  Joe Kistle and Lynn Little have agreed to find out the pros and cons of keeping or removing them. 
  • The Bylaws/Covenants committee has begun developing detailed processes and procedures the Board will follow in revising bylaws/covenants, responding to complaints, etc.
  • We have responded to many requests for information regarding lots, reviewed and approved requests for construction, and mailed out variance request ballots

Concerns:

  • Wayne Boote is still officially on the Board but not participating, limiting the number of people available to accomplish Board work. Unless Wayne agrees to resign we can’t fill his position until the June membership meeting.
  • E-mail issues have limited Carol’s participation, but we have resolved this.
  • The lot the HOA owns isn’t used for anything, but it is a financial burden (insurance)
  • Limited funding constrains the amount of help we can get from a lawyer
    • This limits the Board’s ability to address complaints
    • We will discuss with the lawyer several options to help resolve this
    • Increase dues
    • Make dues mandatory
    • Sell the lot the HOA owns

Near-term focus:

  • Meet with the lawyer to begin addressing our highest-priority issues
  • Get some answers regarding the bridle easements
  • Begin revising Bylaws/Covenants
