This is also the weekend surrounding neighborhoods have their sales. Join the fun!
Please join the current OHS board at the administration building of Abundant Life Church on Friday afternoon, March 16, at 5:30 pm. Appetizers will be served and the business portion of the meeting will end promptly by 6:30 pm with time then being allotted for questions as needed. New positions will need filled, so come eager to serve! Keep an eye on facebook over the next two weeks for reminders and specific announcements regarding components of the meeting. Take pride in your neighborhood and join us! See you there.
OHS members, our annual meeting is right around the corner (date to be announced asap) and the pool opening will be shortly after that. Our pool house and grounds need some attention. Options to fix them include the following: 1. Get a team together to have a work day and fix what we can for free.
2. Hire someone in our neighborhood.
3. Hire outside help.
NEEDS/WANTS PRIOR TO OPENING THIS YEAR include:
1. Non-slip bathroom floors
2. Masonry work around the pool edge
3. Tile work around the baby pool
4. Some patching/painting where the old fence met the pool house
5. Dry wall in the bathrooms
6. Possibly, replace the posts on the overhang, as they are rusted and rotting on the bases
Please respond if you have a skill and would be willing to help. It’s “go time” on these items to keep up our neighborhood. If we have enough people, we’ll set a date to work at our annual meeting. THANK YOU!
Members, we will be holding a board meeting on Tuesday night, August 8, at 7:00. As of now, we are planning on meeting at the pool, but check the neighborhood facebook site Tuesday afternoon in case of a changed location. You may wish to bring a chair. Two topics to be discussed will include details of the restrictions revisions committee, along with gathering some names of helpers for pool house upkeeps. If you have an interest in serving or assisting in either of these areas, or you can recommend someone else who might, we hope you will attend this meeting! These will be the first two topics, then the board of directors will continue with others for the latter half of the meeting, for which you may choose to stay or leave. See you Tuesday!
OHS residents, our neighborhood restrictions are those that were instituted during the development of our subdivision and are in need of being updated. If you would be interested in in serving on this committee, please email the HOA to notify us of your interest and for inquiries. For the interest of all, know that any changes will require 2/3 of member votes to be in approval with at least 25% of the neighborhood members casting a vote. More information to come in the near future.
Hi OHS Residents, this is Andrew Gibb (this login has been used by our board, though it says Escutia). We had a quick meeting today to discuss the many questions and desires to help after an early morning house fire at Jake and Courtney’s residence. I spoke with Jake this afternoon, and he was okay with me sharing information with residents. His spirits were very high and he was grateful his family is safe. Many of you are desiring to help and one of OHS’s residents, Melissa, has volunteered to act as a point person to collect any donations for the family. If you are desiring to make a monetary donation to help, you can go to venmo, then enter Melissa-levin to make a contribution. This is initiated on many of the residents’ behalf and will not be overseen by the OHS board, but we believe this will be a quick resource that can immediately benefit Jake and Christine. Some donations made earlier today have already been given to them! Thank you Melissa for stepping up.
In addition, the following are answers to some of the questions we are aware of at this time that we hope are beneficial. Some are related to this morning’s fire, and others are more general as related to summer.
-Jake and Courtney, along with their children were all able to safely escape the fire. Unfortunately, one of their dogs did not make it. Two firefighters were transferred to the hospital but are both okay and were released earlier today.
-This is the second fire in our area in a week, but the first was in Oak Hill. We are a separate subdivision, so that is the reason you are hearing information on this particular incident.
-I spoke with the fire chief on scene who stated this fire appears to have no ties to the fire last week (paraphrased).
-This may be a great time to talk with your families about fire safety and check smoke detectors.
-As a reminder, fireworks are legal in Lee’s Summit from July 2-July 4. On July 2 and 3, them may be lit from 10:00 am-11:00 pm. On July 4, 10:00 am – midnight. Illegal fireworks include bottle rockets, any other rockets with a stick, missiles with fins or rudders, roman candles, parachutes that suspend illuminated materials, sky lanterns, and those that shoot flaming balls and report. You may see further details on the home page of cityofls.net
-I spoke with the police officer who regularly patrols our area, and he informed me of a great step residents can take to assist with “neighborhood watch.” If you are going to be out of town for any length of time, you may contact Martha at LSPD who runs a Neighborhood House Watch program to let her know of the dates you will be gone. Officers will then routinely check the outside of your home during those dates. Her contact number is 816-969-1770.
OHS is very obviously surrounded by people who are ready to help one another out. All of the directors are humbled and honored to serve.
OHS Residents, concern has been expressed about abrasions or cuts on feet from the bottom of the pool. At this time, no foreign object such as glass has been found by Olympic pool company or residents. Possibilities discussed include a rough edge or area, but this also has not been located. It is also possible that a combination of semi-abrasive surfaces are causing gradual abrasions on toes, etc. which then begin bleeding, but not due to a one time puncture, etc. For the time being, it may be beneficial to check kids’ feet after swimming for 15 or 20 minutes to make sure they are still okay. If your child experiences this, please do your best to ask them if they know where it happened and email the board of directors to let us know. We are sorry this has occurred!! Thank you for keeping us informed.
On a different note, we have had a few complaints about chairs being thrown in the pool, the hose tied from ladder to ladder, trash left lying around, food thrown in the pool, etc. Due to the frequency of these concerns, conversation is beginning to occur regarding the need for a possible pool attendant. The obvious hitch here is the cost. Please… talk with all members of your family who use the pool about leaving it in equal or better condition than found so OHS can continue to spend money from dues on upkeep and updates, such as our pond aerators which are in working order as of yesterday. Thank you to all of you who are contributing to the improvement and success of OHS as a thriving neighborhood and the place to buy a house in an increasingly developing area of Lee’s Summit.
OHS’s annual garage sale will be Thursday, May 18, through Saturday, May 20. This is also the typical weekend for surrounding neighborhoods to hold their sales.
