Attention Dale Earnhardt Jr Wanna-be's
The Board takes the problem of speeding very seriously in our neighborhood. You may notice an increase in officer drive thru's AND we are now on a waiting list for speed radar machines. We hope to have them placed in the neighborhood soon.


One Board Member Needed
We would like to extend a warm welcome to Paul Webb, who is now filling a spot on the Board of Directors. He has graciously taken over Ron Bates spot BUT we are still in need of one more board member to fill Rocky's term. If you would like to fill that one year term, please contact the Board of Directors at boardofdirectors@porterslanding.org. Board meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month, the Hanger Clubhouse at 7pm. 


Save the Date: Annual Homeowners Meeting, Saturday March 19th, 2016 
Please join us at the Clubhouse for our Annual Homeowners Meeting. Registration will begin at 8:15am and meeting to start promptly at 9am. Coffee and breakfast items will be served. There will be neighborhood related updates as well as Committee updates.
If you can NOT make the meeting, please give your proxy to a Board of Director Member or trusted neighbor so your vote counts. In previous years we have had issues with NOT having enough proxies to vote, therefore having to go door to door the morning of the meeting. PLEASE, to avoid this happening, PLEASE give your proxy to a Board Member OR trusted neighbor to vote on your behalf.
 
PLEASE NOTE: In order for your vote to count, you MUST Be current on your homeowners dues. This is ALSO the case with Pool /Clubhouse privileges. In order to use the Pool/Clubhouse, you must be current. There will be a representative from AMG at our meeting if you would like to bring a check to them that day to correct any late payments.
 

Land For Sale
As you may know, Joey Dulin would like to purchase some land we own across the street. In order to sell this land we need a majority of residents to vote "YES". Here you will find the letter he plans to include in our Annual Meeting documents that will arrive prior to the meeting in March. If you can not make the meeting (3/19/16), please be sure to send your Proxy for this vote with a trusted neighbor OR Board member so your vote counts. See letter below.

Now that our roads are state maintained, we are now on the list for winterizing road service for snow. This will include PRE services (Brine) and POST services (Plowing). Residents are being advised NOT to park on the street (especially Little Falls) prior to inclement weather arrival so to allow trucks to get through. We are also asking ALL residents that have special services, medical services or any other daily in home care to please contact Dacy Cavicchia at AMG so she can advise the Emergency Management Services of your needs. It's critical that those service vehicles can get to your home during or after inclement weather.  Dacy can be reached at 
dcavicchia@amgworld.com

December News

Happy Holidays to ALL Porters Landing Residents!!


Board Member Resignation
Effective immediately, Rocky Nance has resigned his position on the Board of Directors. Rocky has served multiple terms on the Board and has done SO MUCH for this neighborhood!! We appreciate all that he has done and he will be sorely missed.


Poop News
We have had a neighbor complaint about dogs using their yard as a community toilet. For those taking Rover out for a walk, PLEASE be respectful of the neighborhood and other residents and PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOGS!! Please bring a baggy or scooper and dispose of the waste in the Pool garbage cans OR your own. 


Speeding
As always, speeding has been an ongoing issue in our neighborhood. It has come to our attention that drag racing has also become a "thing" on Baystone. Please note to those attempting to use our streets as a pre-qualifying run, we WILL be seeking the help of our local Sheriffs Dept to look at doing random speed checks. The Board has also decided to look into the possibilities of speed bumps. Our AMG rep informed us that we would have to go through a process to apply for them with the NCDOT but we are looking into it. In the past we have been told that to pay for them out of pocket could cost anywhere from 4,000.00-8,000.00 PER bump, so obviously that would be costly. Hopefully we will have more updates at our annual meeting March 19th, 2016.


Board Member Resignation
Effective immediately, Ron Bates has resigned his postion on the Board of Directors. Ron has served on the Board as Secretary for 2 terms and has done (and continues to do) SO MUCH for this neighborhood. He will still be devoting his time to the Landscape and Architectural Committee's but we THANK YOU for ALL you have done for the BOD.


Land
Did you know Porters Landing owns a piece of land across the street on Morrison?? Neither did we!! According to Joey Dulin, who now owns that land and wants to build a home on it with a fence lined along Morrison, surveys show we own a small, pie shaped .07 acre's on that side of the street. Now, we haven't struck it rich by any means BUT Joey has offered to buy it from us AND pay for all the legal expenses involved. In order to sell the land we need 67%  neighborhood approval. Look for a letter to arrive (likely around the beginning of the new year) with more details.


Blood Drive
Casey Sussman's blood drive's have been SO successful she would like to make it a bi-annual regular event here in Porters Landing. Thank you to ALL who have donated and look for upcoming 2016 dates as soon as we get them.

Charm Lite Conversion Kits 
Lamp Posts - Residents may have noticed the electric lampposts at several homes in the neighborhood. The lamps have been converted from gas to electric using the Charm Lite conversion kit. The kit is available through  http://www.charm-lite.com/. The Landscaping Committee is currently taking count of people who are interested in ordering this wonderful conversion kit to help beautify our community. The more we order the better price we can get per kit. Please let The Landscaping Committee know if you are interested. Monthly saving changing from gas to electric have been on average $20.00 per month!!!
