Good afternoon, everyone.
Since there were a lot of great questions regarding the vote yesterday, we wanted to give a few updates. First though, thank you to all the folks who either came out and sat through the cold, or watched online in order to be more informed community members. It was encouraging to see people that care so much about the community turn out in awesome numbers, given the pandemic. We know much of what was discussed is still confusing, and trust me I still have those moments myself, which is why asking questions is the best thing to do.
Before I go any further, I'd also like to announce that the deadline to vote has now been extended to 5/19 at 6PM. We understand that in order to make an informed decision people need time to digest what was given to them, and ask questions accordingly so they know all they need to know in order to vote in their own best interest. With that said, we are not extending the deadline to register, that is now closed. All voting opportunities in the future will have a longer deadline to register.
I highly encourage those who weren't physically or digitally present at the meeting to watch it (https://bit.ly/3eqAC45). Members asked great questions about the votes, and we answered to the best of our ability. We also understand that the wording on the actual ballot is only easily comprehensible for those that have practiced in law (DEFINITELY not me), so we have created a FAQ page for your reference (https://bit.ly/3vMptQR).
In case anyone wanted to see a budget breakdown, and the cost of things based on the votes proposed, our wonderful VP put together this beautiful spreadsheet (https://bit.ly/2Snl5cu). For more specific numbers on the pool, you can see those here(https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IIqlfHseEEyWEoLZECaTmeaAr5rFtHf7HxIuZmFgCKA/edit). And finally, we have made a FAQ page (https://bit.ly/3vMptQR) for this vote. If you have a question that isn't on here, please send it our way via the usual channels and we'll place it on there.
We live here too. We pay the assessment, use the tennis/basketball courts/pool, and heck you can even catch me walking on our paths at least once a week (weather permitting). If you made it all the way down to this message, it means you care about our community just as much as we do, which is why we all joined in the first place. What we're trying to do with this vote and every vote in the future is improve the very foundation to which our beautiful community is laid upon. It may not be perfect every time, but it’s ours to make better.
