Covenant Proposed Changes

The results of the covenant proposal changes are in and shown below.  The original covenant document mailed to all homeowners is available on-line at - EMHA Covenant Proposal 8.15.2017 .

The total  covenant change votes received were 236 and the vote distribution is shown below.  As a reminder, it would take 2/3  of the 478 Evergreen Meadows homes,  or 315 votes, before any proposal would be accepted for passage.

None of the proposals were accepted.  In fact, less than half of the Evergreen Meadows residents voted in favor of them.  These proposals were a reflection of the 2017 resident survey and discussions at the monthly board meetings.  Since the majority of our residents chose to vote no or not to vote, we now need your assistance.

Those who didn't vote could help the board by providing us with your reasons for not voting for the proposals.  While we do not have a complete email list of all residents, I hope that we can learn from this process by emailing the board with this feedback at  We meet for the final time as a 2017 board on November 30th at 6pm at the Evergreen Library and will discuss this process at the meeting.  Your feedback is essential to a fruitful discussion.  More Details about the November 30th board meeting are available at - .

There were several outcomes at the annual meeting that included the passage of by-law, rules and regulations and new Architectural Review Board guidelines.  For example, the voluntary dues will now be collected in January.  Other changes will be sent out and become effective on January 1, 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Pete Dunbar
Board President
