Mondrian Properties, the developer of the Raintree Village on the Park subdivision, will present an agreement to the Troy City Council at the June 4, 2018 City Council meeting to place a temporary sales sign at the minimum setback distance of 25 feet on the median island at North Lake off John R. The City requested a resolution from RVHA acknowledging acceptance of the proposed sign. A drawing of the proposed sign is shown at the right.
At the May 14 meeting of the Raintree Village Homeowners Association, the RVHA board discussed and passed the following resolution:
"Resolution 2018-05-006: WHEREAS the homeowners on North Lake Drive have been affected by ongoing construction traffic for the Raintree Village on the Park development, and the homeowners on North Lake Drive, Sherwood Drive, part of Woodgate Drive and part of Kings Point Drive have been affected by construction activities including noise, and WHEREAS the Raintree Village Homeowners Association believes it is in Raintree Village homeowners’ interest for the 59 houses of Raintree Village on the Park to be constructed and sold as quickly as possible, therefore be it RESOLVED that the Raintree Village Homeowners Association supports the placement of a temporary sales sign on the North Lake Drive entrance median at John R Road, in front of the existing Raintree Village subdivision identification sign, for a duration of up to one year or until all 59 houses are sold, whichever comes first."
Bishop/Millay Cul-de-sac Island Plan
At the May 14 meeting of the Raintree Village Homeowners Association, the RVHA board decided to plant myrtle in the mulch area of the cul-de-sac island at Bishop and Millay. An RVHA board member is coordinating volunteers to help with this activity.
Annual RVHA Dues increased to $27 per year
Prior to 2017, RVHA spent each year about the same amount it collected from the 810 homeowners paying the annual assessment, which has been $26 since 2007.
Due to increased expenses and expected costs for pond bank restoration the board voted 2 to 1 at the December 19, 2017 annual meeting to increase the annual assessment from $26 to $27.
In accordance with the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, RVHA can increase the annual assessment by at most 5% per year ($1.30 on a $26.00 assessment) without a vote of the membership.
