Grove Isle Board Elections to be held December 2 , 2014

Although this PRESERVE GROVE ISLE  website was initiated as a response to the potential development of 4 Grove Isle into residential condominiums, one can interpret the goal of preserving Grove Isle more broadly by promoting the participation of the residents of Grove Isle in dealing with some of the major issues before us.

These issues include, but are not limited to, (1) the development of 4 Grove Isle, horizontally, vertically or not at all; (2) the strategy for interacting with the developer (e.g. mediation); (3) rebuilding of the infrastructure of Grove Isle under the control of the Board; (4)  assessments for continued improvements; (5)  Re-appeal of the Dues suit to force the owners of 4 Grove Isle to participate in maintenance costs on Grove Isle, moving forward and reimbursement for back costs; (6) general housekeeping issues for the buildings and property; (7) development of a strategy for the protection/enhancement of property values on Grove Isle.

Grove Isle Election

Grove Isle Votes

To this end, the Board of the Grove Isle Condominium Association plays a critical decision-making role.  The Board is elected annually, and that election is coming up in two weeks.  There are nine board members, three from each building.  The new board will elect a chairman.  It is our understanding that all of those candidates for a Board seat will have a brief description of their background distributed shortly by the Condominium Association.  WE ENCOURAGE EVERY CANDIDATE TO PROVIDE, BEYOND THAT BRIEF DESCRIPTION, THEIR APPROACH TO DEALING WITH THE ISSUES LISTED ABOVE.  This can be done directly on this website so that the residents, the voters, have the appropriate data to make an informed decision.

In the current environment, members of the Board have considerable responsibility, expend considerable effort, and work as unpaid volunteers.  In this form of representative governance, we need to all participate and be properly informed.

This is the time to let the Board know how you feel.

Preserve Grove Isle

Dear Fellow Neighbors

We are all getting bombarded with lots of information about the potential changes of our wonderful island home.   We are delighted that residents are very interested in our future. For this reason we would like to get a sense of how YOU feel.

To accomplish this goal one of your neighbors will come around to ask your opinion YES or NO in terms of whether you wish to have any high density construction on the island or not. We all realize that this topic is of paramount importance to the future life style and setting of Grove Isle.

Please note that the Condominium Association lawyers will present an information meeting for all Grove Isle owners on Monday 7 April.  Further information regarding this is included in the document attached below.
