HOA Business:

  1. HOA Board discussed the possibility of financing the removal of a huge tree located on High Cedar’s property (across the street from President Harvey Nordyck’s home). Dave Baxter suggested that there was little evidence that it was a serious problem and that the HOA should leave it as is for now.
  2. PC-Net Coordinators Barbara Solberg, Betsy Pineda and Hellen Wilson reminded the HOA Board that both the Orting Fire Department and the Pierce County’s Emergency Management Department are working with a dozen High Cedars and Augusta homeowners to develop an emergency management program for High Cedars and Augusta families. This program would provide skills to care for one another in case of such an emergency. The coordinators of the PC-NET will be visiting with all homeowners to share developmental materials prepared by Pierce County’s Emergency Management Department.
  3. The Board received a lengthy memo from twenty High Cedars’ homeowners living on the Executive Course regarding golf course management. This group asked the HOA to present their concerns to Club House Management. President Harvey agreed to do so. The contents of this memo were discussed by the Board.

The next meeting for the Village Board will be at the President Harvey Nordyke’s Home on Wednesday March 8th at 7:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Hellen Wilson, Village Secretary
