6. New and Other Business
• Community Park and Beach Development
Residents indicated a desire make the community park and beach area more user friendly. Safety concerns were also raised about the swing set in the community park. After considerable discussion, it was agreed that the KBA Operations and Maintenance Manager will talk to KBA about covering the cost of stairs to improve access from the trail to the community beach with possible resident involvement to install the stairs. He will also remove the broken swing set at the earliest possible date, explore the possibility of purchasing a new play structure for the park, and arrange for general maintenance and improvements to the beach area.
• Mortgages/Sub-leases/Head Lease
Questions were raised about the status of negotiations with Conexus Credit Union regarding the issuing of mortgages for properties being purchased in Kinookimaw. The Vice-President advised that the credit union has indicated which clauses in the existing sub-leases need to be amended to comply with their lending policies. It was decided that the Board will explore the possibility of hiring a lawyer to redraft the sub-lease, present it to KBA for consideration, and then present it to Conexus Credit Union. Residents indicated that this issue should be given a high priority as it ultimately could affect the sale of every property in the community. Residents would also like negotiations of an extension to the Head Lease to be given a high priority as it may affect property values as the expiration date in 2056 approaches.
• Shoreline Access Policy
S. Siemens presented the highlights of the draft Shoreline Access Policy concept that was prepared by the Board and forwarded to Wayne Morris for consideration. Concern was raised by some residents that the draft policy should have been circulated to the residents for their input prior to submission to KBA. It was indicated that there would be an opportunity for input and further discussion after an indication was received that KBA was in general agreement with the concepts outlined in the draft policy.
That the meeting adjourn at 10:55 am
M: R. Hanoski
