CHOA Annual Meeting to be virtual again this year

Dear Homeowner:                                                                          

The CHOA Board of Directors decided to conduct the 2022 Annual meeting virtual this year as there was still uncertainly with Covid and the rules around large gatherings when we planned this meeting, plus the fact that the Clubhouse is in the process of moving some activities to the new Activity Center and some of our normal spaces may be unavailable during this transition.  We look forward to having next year’s Annual Meeting in person!

We will be mailing you a package with the following along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope:

  1. 2021 Annual Meeting Minutes.
  2. 2021 Yearend Financial Statement.
  3. Ballot for 3 items that require your vote:
    • Board of Director- 3 candidates
    • Approval of 2021 Annual Minutes
    • Approval of Annual IRS Resolution

In addition, you will find a notice that says CHOA is in compliance with Oregon House Bill (HB) 2534.  This is a legal requirement that we need to affirm compliance.

Please note that you will need to return your Ballots by Friday, April 22nd.

As you know, 2021 was a very challenging year for CHOA and Charbonneau as a whole.  We had Covid, Ice Storms and Excessive Heat to contend with.  Due to Covid, all our Board meeting were held virtually.  Despite these challenges, we able to get work done to continue make CHOA a place we all enjoy.  We accomplished the following:

  1. Revised the Bylaws to more align with the rest of Charbonneau
  2. Striped and marked all Visitor Parking areas
  3. Hosted Food Trucks in CHOA
  4. Upgraded Rec Hall C with a Generator and Wireless Internet
  5. Upgraded plantings by Red 5/6 restrooms
  6. Kept the Pools open the longest time in the recent past

We thank you for your continued support.  Please note that we are always looking for Volunteers to help keep CHOA the great place to live.  Please let me know if you interested in these opportunities. 

Sincerely,

Barry

We are excited to share that Amelia’s Food Cart will be returning to CHOA on Saturday, April 9th at 1:00 until 4:00p.m.  It will be located across the street from 32485 Boones Bend Road.  There is a 4 space parking area where the truck will be parked.  It is right by the Red 6 tee box.  Please come on by – walk, drive or ride in your golf cart to this enjoy this experience.

Please see menu below:

Reminder- Red course is closed to all non-golfers

Please note the following message from CCC:

“On behalf of our residents, the Charbonneau Country Club wishes to thank the Charbonneau Golf Club for allowing walkers on the cart paths on the Red Course during the winter. Having an additional safe place to walk has been appreciated and well used.

Starting March 1, golfers will be playing the Red course in addition to the other two courses. This means more maintenance equipment as well will be on the Red course and cart paths. Thus walking on all the courses and cart paths is discontinued on March 1.

Reminder- Feeding of Wild Birds or Animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of Skunks, Raccoons, Rats and Mice.  Also, the local Squirrel population is getting larger.  They like to chew on the sprinkler heads which can destroy them and then we have to spend CHOA funds to replace the sprinkler heads.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.

CHOA Looking for Volunteers to help with Charbonneau Neighborhood Watch Program

Please not that CCC is working to organize a Charbonneau wide Neighborhood Watch program. CHOA is looking for some folks to volunteer to join this effort. If you are interested, please let me know- Barry -hbgconsulting@gmail.com or 503-754-0322.

Please see letter below from CCC:

“To All Charbonneau HOA Presidents and EPPS Key Captains:

In response to an increase in neighborhood crimes in Charbonneau over the past couple of years, the Emergency Preparedness and Public Safety Committee (EPPS) has decided to establish Neighborhood Watch (NW) programs throughout Charbonneau.  As an EPPS committee member, I have volunteered to lead this endeavor and I introduced the idea to the Key Captains who tuned in to the Zoom meeting held this past week, and they unanimously agreed to the idea.

Using Charbonneau’s established HOA areas, we are asking the Key Captains and HOA Presidents to help get this set up by recruiting volunteers to monitor and administer the program. Many people have expressed concerns about increased crime; YOU best know your residents and who might be open to being involved.  Before you start recruiting NW Leaders, please read about the National Neighborhood Watch program on the website: www.nnw.org. It will provide you with many answers to questions you might have as to how it works. This program was first established 50 years ago in 1972, and today has the backing of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s department who will be involved with helping us. The NNW website will give you instructions on how to set up your neighborhoods most effectively. To begin with, I am suggesting that at least two NW Leaders be assigned on each major street.

I plan to have the first organizational meeting with the NW Leaders you have recruited on March 15th at 4:00 pm in the CCC dining room, during which myself and other EPPS members will try to answer any questions you might have and help you as we move forward.

On April 20th we will have our first official meeting in the CCC Pavilion building at 4:00 pm with Sarah McClurg from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Dept., which will be for all of the NW Leaders to attend. Sara will give us the details on how the program works and how it coordinates with local law enforcement.  She also will order signage and literature to share with each NW Leader.

I will check back with you around March 1st for an update as to how you are progressing with assembling your NW Leaders and hope you will be able to provide me with a list of names, home addresses, and email addresses. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,

Spencer Groshong
