President's Bulletin Board:
|I hope you are all looking forward to our annual meeting on April 25! I'm hoping for a big turnout but know that sometimes Saturday is a busy day for people so if you can't make the Meeting please give your Proxy to someone who is going. We can't conduct business without a quorum of 50--either seated members or Member Proxies. |
|There are 3 seats up for re-election/election. Rick Collins, TJ Wright and Jason Woodward. Jason will not be running but both of the others are. In addition we have two people willing to step up and run for a position. They are Karen Pilkerton and Bill Rowe. So we will have an opportunity to vote for one or the other. Thanks to both of you!|
|I know you're all happy that spring is finally here! But that means traffic issues increase. I witnessed a gold colored Chevy truck (older model) with Farm plates speeding up and down Malvern Drive in front of my house this week. They seemed to be "testing" acceleration and braking capacity, making three U turns just to make sure! I can't wait for Speed Humps to go in! Some may not like them but they will slow traffic down and discourage this type of entertainment. |
|Enjoy the daffodils!|

Architectural Committee: 2015 Building Season
The 2015 building season is finally upon us after a long winter. Please review the rules and covenants before submitting building request packages for new homes or outbuildings, additions to structures already in place, or fences, etc. If the initial package is complete the process normally goes quickly and smoothly. Any building which requires the use of heavy equipment on our roads requires road fees from both the resident and the contractor doing the work. Final approval is required from the Board of Directors after the Architecture committee submits their recommendation. This comes at a monthly meeting. Any discrepancy can result in up to a 30-day delay. Please ensure compliance and completeness to ensure timely approval.
Grounds & Lake Committee: Bulletin Board Usage
As spring unfolds, we all find items that we would like to clean out. The bulletin board then begins to fill up with notices of things for sale. Please be aware that Malvern has a policy regarding the use of its bulletin boards. The intent is to make it fair for every member. Notices must be posted by members on paper that is no larger than standard letter size (8 1/2 x 11 inches). Posting is limited to two weeks and the lot number and date of initial posting must be clearly printed on the notice. Items may be reposted, until the date of the event, if necessary. Following these rules will keep the bulletin boards uncluttered and make them available to all members. A formal copy of the rules is posted above the bulletin boards.
Firewise Committee: Chipper Day
On Wednesday, April 22, 2015, a large chipper and crew will be in Malvern to complete phase two of the 2014 Firewise Program in our community. If you participated in the first phase of the program in July contact the Program Coordinator only if you do not want to participate again. If you did not participate in July and would like to in April; please contact the Program Coordinator as soon as possible.
This is a great time to work in wooded areas to gather fallen branches, large sticks and small fallen trees. Remember to stack debris by April 21 within 10 feet of the road with the cut edge facing the road. Be sure to enter the hours worked on your Firewise log. For detailed information and logs please refer to our Firewise page, email the Program Coordinator, or call 948-3230.
Thank you for your participation in the Firewise Program.
