Thanks to those homeowners that took time out of their busy schedules to attend the Annual Meeting of Members held on Tuesday evening, January 16. It was great to see new faces, and catch up with those “old” folks that have been in Corrente Bello longer!
The main discussion at the meeting was focused on the need to drill a well to ensure that moving forward the neighborhood will have adequate irrigation water for both common areas and homeowner property. The Board and others from the water committee shared information on the data collected and analyzed to help confirm that the well was the best option to pursue and to determine the scope of the project. There were lots of questions and comments from the members and great discussions ensued. The Board will be sending a letter to all owners summarizing the project and its related costs.
An election for 2018 Board members was held and the following persons elected: Ian Burnett, Doran Dalke, Robert Rose, Josh Sears and Lee Young. Board members serve one-year terms.
In other business the Board summarized the projects completed in 2017, those planned for 2018 in addition to the well project, reviewed the 2017 financial reports and the 2018 budget, and answered questions from homeowners. Minutes from the meeting will be posted on the secure portal via the Sentry website soon.

Beginning on January 1, 2018, the Board will start to enforce the CC&Rs re: timeline required for homes to be built on these lots or landscaped as outlined in the documents. Lot owners in Division 1 will have 18 months to either start home construction or get the lots landscaped as outlined in the Design Guidelines. Lot owners in Division 2 have 24 months from the date of closing to start construction and must complete construction within 36 months from date of closing. Owners have received notification of this requirement. The Board feels that the vacant lots are a nuisance and sends the wrong message to those visiting the neighborhood. Because the economy has improved and real estate is booming in the Treasure Valley, the Board expects compliance with the CC&Rs and that the owners of these vacant lots will comply and thus improve the look of the neighborhood.
