No Quorum

I would like to thank my fellow Board members, Rick Goldberg and his co-worker from Wilgus Associates, everyone who helped with the physical set up at the pool, and the 44 owners who attended Saturday's annual membership meeting. As you know, we needed 231 proxies to meet quorum. We only received 180 - wasting approximately $1,000 of our dues on the mailing, administrative costs, and chair rental. And now we have to do it all over again in order to conduct the business that should have happened on Saturday.
 
To those of you who took the brief amount of time it took to fill out and send back your proxy form - thank you! Those proxies and any election ballots already received will remain held over until the membership meeting is continued on a future date to be determined.

Marianne Perry, Secretary
Stonewater Creek POA

Important Message ...

Hello Stonewater Creek Community,
 
As you know your Board has worked diligently to get our pool open and to be in compliance with the state safety directives.  Since opening our pool there have been several issues we’re currently addressing:
  • Vandalism in the Men’s room.
  • Homeowners loaning their FOBs to outside guests.
  • Profanity in the pool areas when small children are present.
  • Trespassing after hours.
Our pool attendants do their best to help keep our pool a pleasant and safe environment.  Please cooperate with them and abide by the rules.
 
On the issue of trespassing:
  • Pool Hours are currently 10:00AM until 7:30PM.  See website for more details.
  • Access to both areas after hours is restricted.  FOB access is automatically deactivated.
  • Video surveillance equipment is installed and monitored in both Pool and Clubhouse areas.
  • Trespassing is a dangerous and serious offense with potential hazard to the individual(s) and liability to our community.
For your information, on June 7th at 10:29PM our video surveillance equipment recorded an individual who gained access to the pool area, which at the time was FOB restricted, searched the area and removed articles from a lost-and-found pile on a table near the clubhouse.  So noted, this trespass is being investigated.
 
We appreciate your continued cooperation and hope there are no more instances of the above.  The purpose of our monitoring is to keep our community members and guests safe and the amenities in good working order for the enjoyment of all.

The website was developed to identify Stonewater Creek as a community in Millsboro, Delaware (Long Neck) for the general public and to provide a secure members-only access for community information.  The website is controlled by the Technology Committee (TC) under the direction of the Board of Directors (BOD) and its content is approved by the TC and BOD.  The website is for information only and does not allow direct user input or advertising of goods and services.  Email services for groups and members will distribute information within the community.
 
The Nextdoor Social Private Network for Stonewater Creek was developed for this community; however, other local communities using the Nextdoor platform can also be accessed and interacted with.  Nextdoor has many features and allows users to interact, exchange information, ask questions, advertise, receive information from local contractors, businesses and law inforcement.  Content, such as events, forms and documents, groups and community member emailing have been moved to the website.
 
Stonewater Creek Social Media currently includes Facebook.  This component only includes main events and will be developed and expanded further.
