2015 brings changes

A new year is upon us and change is in the air. Founding members Mary Edith Dressel and Bill Jackson chose to step down from the board after five years of service to the Association. Also retiring, after four years, is Alfred Rath. The Association thanks these individuals for the hard work they put into creating the organization. Stepping up to assume the leadership role on the board is Joe Furco, who assumes the titles of President, Secretary and Treasurer. While Joe has only lived in Stablewood for about 18 months, he became a board member in 2014 and showed an interest in becoming even more involved this year. Second-year board member Rod Jenkins has been elected as the Vice President of SPOA. Roland Samson, who is one of the developers of Stablewood, will continue to serve as a board member. Roland was also a founding board member of SPOA and is entering his sixth year on the board.

Another big change for SPOA is the addition of a management association. Pelican Association Management will be taking over the day to day responsibilities for the Association. Owners won’t see much of a change, other than a new address to mail your dues, but Pelican will be handling much of the behind the scenes work that the board has been doing for 5 years. You will be able to make your dues payments online for the first time, beginning this year. Pelican will also handle the billing of dues, covenant issues and the relationships with vendors that support the neighborhood. Look for a newsletter on a regular basis and more information on this website.

2014 was a banner year for building in Stablewood, and the trend appears to be continuing into 2015. A number of homes were completed last year, there are several houses under construction now and one or two owners have plans being reviewed and should begin construction soon. All this is great news for the neighborhood.

If you are interested in helping the board by volunteering for a committee, please contact Joe Furco. To find out more about the committees, click here.
