Communication and Transparency

Communication and transparency = motto of the WMVV Transition Committee.  The Committee was established by the Board of Directors in June 2018.  Since that time, we have recruited residents from the community making it a four-member Committee.

  • As mentioned in prior Blogs, we are not a decision-making body. We provided information to you in the Blog dated October 23, 2018 defining our role and the processing checklist we will utilize.
  • Currently we are reviewing past budgets and financials, past Reserve Study, and prior Minutes of the Board of Directors plus a general working knowledge of the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. This will give us the foundation on which to evaluate other aspects.
  • Committee role is strictly defined in the charter. See http://www.wmvv.org/transition.html.  We are not paid.  We are volunteer residents of the RSA who have as much vested interest in this process as you do.  Like you, we are residents and property owners at WMVV.  It is important to each of us to give complete care and attention to the process.  We are acting as a liaison between Owners and Declarant by performing “due diligence” inspections of pertinent data.
  • This committee will make sure that all paperwork, accounting, and closeout issues are addressed before taking over the responsibility of the association from the developer. Keep in mind that we have no power or authority to make changes or enact recommendations.  We inspect, report and recommend – PERIOD.

We welcome and invite your questions and feedback.  To that end we have established an email account specifically for your use in communicating with us.  The email address is:  WMVVfeedback@gmail.com.  It is important to contact us in writing, so we can insure a quick and complete response.   If your concern/question is outside our charter, we will forward it to the appropriate person/group for resolution and inform the resident of our action.  Thank you for your assistance with this communication procedure.  And, we appreciate and invite your input.

Snow Plow Woes

With the onset of Winter in the White Mountains comes snowfall and the challenges of keeping streets clear and safely passable.

When snow is removed from the road, the snow plow operator has to pile it as far off the shoulder as possible to protect the road surface and make room for traffic and more snow.  The amount of snow fall determines how much to the side of the road the snow can be placed. The plowing operation creates a “snow berm.”  Widening roads too much causes a massive snow berm that can cause damage to the road and to vehicles. It is impossible to plow and not leave a berm.  Please do not shovel the snow back onto the street.

Heavy snowfall disrupts daily living.  Dealing with it can be frustrating for everyone.  The snowplow crew will do their best to minimize any inconvenience and, if necessary, plowing crews will work around the clock.  What you can do to help:

  • Do not park your motor vehicles on the roadway.
  • For your safety, keep driving to a minimum during a snowstorm unless necessary.
  • It is recommended to not shovel snow from your driveway street edge until the street has been completely plowed back to the edge of the road to save you from shoveling the driveway edge twice.

When a snowplow is working in the community it has the right of way.  Please use caution. We appreciate your understanding and support.
