He also reported on new updated Watch programs from the county and said he will be looking into them.

12. Old Business:
a. Recreational vehicle parking: Ron read Docs regarding parking. Ron proposed a motion to change the Covenants to allow for a time period for before and after parking at homes. Discussion ensued and it was decided that 3 business days before and 3 business days after use would be allowed. If more time was needed, all residents are required to contact either the Property Manager or the Board. Cookie seconded, motion carried.
b. Landscaping Proposals: Ron went over the spreadsheet listing all the proposals and what they offered. Three were selected for final negotiation: Blue Water, Carol King, and Special Touch. The Board will ask for best and final price for services including annuals. The decision will be made at the October Board meeting for budget purposes.
c. Signage cleaning offered by resident of Cypress Isles: After discussion it was decided to not reject the resident's offer to clean the sign but rather to not do the cleaning at this time and revisit for next year.
d. Traffic Committee: John Tenney reported that he had not heard back from the county yet. The traffic light at Waterford Chase has seemed to help with cutting down somewhat on cut through traffic. He also mentioned that there are a lot of tax credit and HUD apartments being built in the area and that this would probably contribute to crime and traffic in CI. John also reported that they are continuing to put pressure on the county for the stop signs and that CI is getting attention regarding their issues.

13. New Business:

14. Motion to adjourn was made by John Tenney, seconded by Cookie, and unanimously approved. Meeting adjourned at 8:39pm.
