Renton Fire Department – No one present to report.

Molasses Creek/Park Pipeline – Adrian gave Chris paperwork to be signed and returned to the Department of Natural Resources and Parks so that they can have access to the park.

A special meeting with the Board of Trustees will be held on January 7th to discuss ideas and plans for the park.  These items need to be given to Rachel who is also with the Department of Natural Resources and Parks by the end of January.  Items to be discussed but not limited to are:  Type of road, basketball court and fencing.

Adrian then reported that he feels he now needs to bow out of the project.  King County wants to deal with a Board officer and he will remain on for consultation as required.  He noted that the next item will be the official agreement between King County and the HOA.  This will have to be negotiated out in a formal manner and then reviewed by the HOA attorney before it is signed. 

Brandy offered to help Chris as needed on the project.

Chris thanked Adrian for all his hard work on this project.

Homeowner Appeals – No one present.

Community Events – The Home Holiday Decoration Contest judging will be between the 20th and 23rd of December.  There will be 5 winners each awarded a $25 gift card.

Architectural Control Report – It was noted that there was a large tree cut down on the empty lot that previously submitted a new home plan and the wood is still sitting there.  We had previously asked the owner for a plot plan but still have not received anything.

Brandy feels it is time to contact the property owner again and remind him that he has 9 months to complete the project from the start date.

Common Properties Report – Chris noted that there were some holiday lights stolen from the front entryway and one set of tree lights is not working.  He emailed Richard and asked him to replace them if possible.

There was good feedback on the lighting done this year.
