ANNUAL MEETING HELD
The 2021 Annual Meeting of the Breckenridge Owners Association, Inc. was held at Sam Michael’s Park Community on Thursday, July 15th, 2021, 7:00 PM.  The purpose of the meeting was to review the operations of the Association, elect one member to the Board of Directors, and discuss any questions or concerns the membership may have.  
 
Three nominations were received to fill the expiring term currently held by Sarah Bennett-Harper.  At the meeting, there was a tie vote for the most number of votes, between John Fludine and Rebecca Francoline.  As the Bylaws do not provide guidance for such a situation, the BOD agreed to adjourn the meeting and consult with the Association's attorney to determine the next course of action, which may include a re-vote of the community.   However, after adjournment, John Fludine withdrew his candidacy, thereby allowing Rebecca Francoline to be elected to the Board of Directors for a three-year term.
 
Complete meeting minutes are attached.

AMENDMENT TO ALLOW PERMANENT, ABOVE-GROUND POOLS FAILS TO PASS
In October all owners were mailed information and a ratification form regarding a proposed Fifth Amendment to the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions to allow for permanent, above-ground swimming pools.  A deadline for return of Ratification Forms was noted as December 31, 2020.  The final results of the proposal are as follows:
 
123 of 282 Lots responded (44%)
64 Lots were in favor (23% of all Lots)
59 Lots were opposed (21% of all Lots)
 
In accordance with the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions, the affirmation of at least 67% of all Lots is required to ratify any proposed change.  As such, the proposed amendment failed to pass.  
 

 
2021 Budget Approved
The Board of Directors has approved the 2021 Operating Budget.  There will be no change to the 2021 rate of assessemnt, which remains $132.00 per quarter.
 

 
RV Parking in Breckenridge
Article VI, Section 1.f.1 of the Declaration of Covenants states, "If garages are included in a Living Unit, such garages and driveways shall be used for passenger vehicle storage only (including one self-propelled mobile home)" So, the type of RV is important, and it is only permitted if it is "self-propelled."
 

 
Unregistered Vehicles Not Permitted
The Board of Directors recently discussed and reviewed an opinion provided by legal counsel in order to clarify parking restrictions within the Breckenridge subdivision, including the parking of untagged/unregistered vehicles on Lots.   
Please note that all such vehicles are prohibited in accordance with Article VI, Section 1(n) of the Declaration of Covenants which requires owners to comply with local laws, which includes West Virginia's vehicle laws requiring registration of a vehicle within 30 days of it being maintained in the state. 
As such, beginning October 1, 2020, any unregistered and/or untagged vehicle not kept within an enclosed garage will be subject to property violation enforcement.  Thank you for your understanding and compliance.
 

 
Annual Meeting Held - July 2019
The Breckenridge Annual Meeting was held July 18th, at Sam Michael's Park Community Room.  At the meeting, Roger Forshee was elected to serve a 3-year term on the Board of Directors.  Many thanks to outgoing member Todd Milliron, who completed a 3-year term on the Board of Directors.
 

 
Utility Trailers Not Permitted
Due to a visible increase in street parking as well as an increase in the number of non-passenger vehicles in the community, the Board of Directors recently discussed and ultimately obtained legal counsel in order to clarify parking restrictions within the Breckenridge subdivision.   Although the language in the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions can sometimes be ambiguous, Article VI, Section 1(i) very clearly prohibits trailers from being maintained upon any Lot or upon the Common Areas at any time.   Article VI, Section 1(f)1 also very clearly prohibits parking along the private streets. 
The streets within the subdivision are quite narrow, so street parking certainly can impede the flow of traffic.  Trailer and other non-passenger vehicle parking within driveways is also presenting a safety concern, as it sometimes causes resident and/or guest parking to spill over to the street.  
In an effort to minimize street parking as well as to uphold the restrictions established in the Declaration, the HOA will be strictly enforcing the parking of utility trailers within the subdivision.  This includes trailers parked in driveways and upon Lots.  For the purposes of enforcement, “utility trailer” shall be defined as a non-motorized vehicle which is generally pulled by a motorized vehicle and features an open or closed top cargo area and is used for the hauling of loads.
Please note that the parking of trailers will be strictly enforced after August 31, 2019, and non-compliance shall be subject to the adopted Rules Enforcement Procedures.  If you are currently parking a utility trailer on your property, please make arrangements to have it stored elsewhere.  Street parking is currently actively enforced.
