Members Concerns/Other Business:
The committee discussed propane (LP) tank screening requirements. The ACC Rules and Guidelines require: “All propane tanks (and/or exterior above ground storage tanks) must be properly screened from road and neighbor’s view. Location of underground storage tanks must be indicated on plot plan and approved by the ACC or its designee.” An enewsletter was sent to the membership concerning this matter as there are many tanks that are visible from the road, neighbor’s view and/or both. Numerous owners have contacted the office to request a review of their tanks to see if they meet the screening requirement. After review and discussion the committee asked that the Maintenance Department employees note any homes that have above ground tanks. When this information is received the committee members will review the homes and make recommendations.

A motion was made and seconded to adjourn the meeting at 8:50 AM.
