Contributed by Linda Lulkovich – Transition Committee Chair
The Transition Committee is now formed and ready to begin work. It has been a bit slower than anticipated due to recruiting efforts, vacations and general conflicts. The Committee now has four members: Linda Lulkovich, Don Murray, Jay Clem and Roy Chamberlin. We want to reach out to the Village to let you know our plan of action.
This Committee has been tasked with doing the “due diligence” required to learn the status of the entire WMVV Recreational Subdivision Association (RSA). We must inspect everything from financials, inventories, systems and their function to maintenance, management and insurance. You can find a checklist for guidance that we have adopted at: http://mulcahylawfirm.com/publications.php. There is also a complete list of our Responsibilities and Duties published in the Committee Charter at: http://wmvv.org/transition.html.
You will see there is much to do. We expect the transition timeframe to span about 18 months. Our work, in conjunction with developer sales, will control the timing issue. It is important for you to understand our role and function. We are not a decision-making body but rather a group with skills needed to review various aspects of the RSA. Where we do not have the expertise, we will contract professionals who possess the skills needed. To begin our work, we must be familiar with the background. We are presently reviewing the RSA documents (CC&R’s, Articles, Bylaws, Maps, etc.). As we accomplish the various components on the checklist, a summary report will be made along with recommendations.
Community members will be kept informed of our progress on a regular basis through this BLOG publication. Recognizing that effective communication helps to establish harmony in the community, we welcome input from members. However, we do want to emphasize again that we are not decision-makers. We are fact-finders. The Advisory Committee is your first stop for expressing concerns about the Community. They will forward those concerns to us where appropriate. Please give them an opportunity for resolution first. That said, we do want to be aware of your matters of interest. There are many areas where we may not have first-hand knowledge and you do. For example, defects within the common areas and the like. So, please feel free to talk with any of us on the Committee at any time. You can also email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 602-809-7007. We value your opinions, welcome your thoughts and ask you to share them with us.
