A note from your new WEV President

From The President by Bob Rose

Hello Everyone.

This is the first newsletter that has been released since I’ve been elected to my new position so I wanted to take this moment to introduce myself to our community and let you know of some changes the board and I have already made.

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut but I have lived my entire adult life in Oregon. Before moving to Eugene I lived in Corvallis for 15 years.  It was in 2008 that my family and I moved to West Eugene Village.  One of the reasons we chose this community was the peacefulness of the neighborhood.  Thankfully, it still remains a wonderful place to live and I’m glad to see so many of my neighbors take pride in their homes.  I absolutely love living in Eugene.  Some of my favorite things to do in the area are going to live music shows, visiting the local wineries and exploring nature by camping or day hikes.  If you see me walking around the neighborhood please feel free to say hi and introduce yourself.  I would love to get to know you!

Well, Spring is upon us which means more sunshine and warmer days.  But the weather is not the only thing changing. The HOA has also made some changes.  For the last few months the location of our monthly meeting has switched from a resident’s home to a meeting space at Kalapuya High School.  One of the reasons I wanted to make this change was to encourage our residents to attend more meetings.  I am pleased to say the attendance has gone up since we made this change.  I want to thank everyone that has made it to our meetings and I would love to see this trend continue, so please join us!  We meet the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7pm.

One other change to mention: to improve communication between the board and our residents, we will be installing message boards at all the mailbox kiosks.  On those boards you will see information about meetings and special announcements.  We should have those boards up within the next couple of weeks.

If you have any concerns or questions, always feel free to let the board know.  We are here to represent you!

2019 – Approved Budget – Increase in Dues

Hello WEV Homeowners,

The 2019 Budget was approved at the October Annual Meeting.  With the new budget, we will see an increase in monthly dues.  Dues will be increasing to $40.00 per month in 2019.  Please make sure you begin paying the new amount in 2019.  If you use your online bill pay with your bank, please contact them to update the amount they send to us in 2019.  If you are on auto pay with our software, you will want to make sure it is set up to pay the new amount.

Please watch your mail for the upcoming Winter 2018 Newsletter with the budget included.  You can also get a copy of the budget from your owner portal (if you have activated it).  If you do not have an owner portal, please email westeugenevillage@gmail.com and we will be happy to send you an invitation from our software, Appfolio.  If you have already activated your portal but have forgotten your login information, please login at https://wevhoa.appfolio.com/connect/users/sign_in and click on Forgot Your Password?, the system will walk you through retrieving your password.

Sincerely,

Your Board of Directors

Staffing Update

Hello WEV Homeowners,

At our last board meeting, the board voted to terminate our working relationship with Suzy Payne, former WEV Bookkeeper.  Our Treasurer, Darla Berge, volunteered to take over the accounting needs of the association until such time as we can hire a new bookkeeper.  During this time, Darla will also be able to evaluate the actual bookkeeping needs of the association so we insure we do not overpay for this service.  For now, if you have any questions about your account, please contact Darla Berge by email at westeugenevillage@gmail.com.  Please note that Darla works full time and is volunteering to do this.  She will work on WEV business in the evenings and weekends so you will need to have patience in getting response from us.

Once we get a new bookkeeper hired, we will notify everyone of the new contact information.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Remember to mail in your ballots for the pending CC&R changes

Hello WEV Owners,

In May we mailed out a packet with the proposed CC&R changes along with a ballot for each of you to vote and mail back to the association. As of today, we have only received 38 ballots and are asking the rest of you to please dig out those ballots and get them mailed in as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or have miss-placed your packet, please feel free to contact the HOA and someone will make sure you get a new packet.

At Your Service,

West Eugene Village Board of Directors

Annual Community-Wide Garage Sale – June 23rd and 24th

Hi WEV Homeowners,

This is a reminder of the upcoming Community-Wide Garage Sale sponsored by our association. Per our Spring 2018 Newsletter, the garage sale will occur the weekend of June 23rd and 24th.

WEV will be placing an ad in the local newspaper and also put signs out on Terry and Avalon.

In previous years, this has been a very successful event. This is a great time to get rid of those ‘extra’ household items. Please be sure and let your friends and family know that this is coming up. We hope many homeowners will participate.

Happy Selling,

Your Board of Directors
West Eugene Village
