* Special Agenda Item: Mr. Nathan Saucier, resident in phase 5/6 area of neighborhood addressed Board wanting to form an HOA for said phases and inquired as to options for merging with HR-HOA. A meeting is scheduled with Gene Dunn on Monday, March 31, 2014, regarding his position on the status of phase 5/6. Mr. Saucier wants financial support and commitment from HR-HOA for his group. Board stated we could not commit at this time but certainly want the entire HR neighborhood to be “one” when all of the details are worked out with phase 5/6. Some of the issues in phase 5/6 are road repairs/maintenance responsibilities and bringing the roadways up to conditions acceptable by the State to take over maintenance. Attorney Richard Leisner had been contacted about phase 5/6, but has since represented Gene Dunn and now has a conflict of interest. Members of HR-HOA will attend this meeting if able. Issue tabled pending further information and results from March 31 meeting.
