Our New Management Company
It's official, effective January 1, 2017, LightHouse Properties became Forest Lakes POA's Professional Management Company. This change will largely be transparent for our members, but a few things will affect you directly. Those changes are outlined in the letter from LightHouse President, Tim Penick.
Most importantly, if you have automatic bill payment set up, please remember to change your Payee Address for Forest Lakes POA. Also, and this is effective immediately, please do not use Lake Vista's drop box at the Lake Vista Center - see additional info in Tim's letter.

Download the letters from our President, Sharon Sitterley, and from LightHouse Properties President Tim Pennick by clicking here.

These letters were mailed together to all of our membership in early December 2016. We look forward to having the support and experience of LightHouse working for us.

Fall 2016 Newsletter
The Fall 2016 Forest Lakes Newsletter can be downloaded from the Resident's section of the website by clicking Property Owners - Newsletters.
2016 Annual Meeting - Thurs Oct 6th
Thanks to everyone who attended or sent a Proxy for the meeting.

The Associations business, the past years accomplishments, the 2017 budget and the updated Five-Year Plan were reviewed. Brief highlights of the committees activities were presented. Association President Sharon Sitterley gave a status report on the Boards study concerning the hiring of a Professional Management firm to handle the day-to-day activities of the Association.

The following four Members were re-elected Directors by acclamation and each person will serve a three-year term: Gracie Lanier, Kevin Parry, Craig Szczutkowski, and Ann Thomas.

Letter to Members
Residents should have received a letter from the Board and Covenants Committee that was dated March 22nd 2016 (also available here). This letter was sent to all of our membership.
As we enter 'Spring clean up' time, we just wanted to provide a reminder to everyone of the importance of keeping our properties in good condition. Note that if a member does need to receive a letter from a Committee or the Board about a specific complaint or violation, the letter will be addressed directly to them, including name and address, and it will be specific in citing the issue being raised.
Again, thank you for your concerns and feedback, and for your efforts to keep our overall community in top condition.
