In starting the budget process, because so many expenses have significantly increased, we are looking for areas to save money so that we can reduce the increase that will be required in annual dues.
There have been some suggestions to reduce expenses through altering our yard debris bin program. It costs approximately $500 each time we provide the yard debris bin. One suggestion was to eliminate the yard debris bin altogether. Another was to reduce the number of times we provide the bin. Suggested reduced schedules include providing it every other month and providing it from April through October, eliminating it in the winter months.
Please let me know your thoughts on: (1) eliminating it all together, (2) reducing it to every other month, (3) eliminating it in the winter months, or (4) another proposal you may have.
Effective September 2014: We are discussing a revised yard debris collection box schedule and vendor. Until we finalize the vendor and the schedule, the yard debris box is on hold and is not available per the originally scheduled dates and locations.
Welcome to Four Seasons!
As you consider the many areas in which you could purchase a home, undoubtedly one of the things which will strike you about Four Seasons is its “feel.” It feels safe, quiet and reflects that quality we term “pride of ownership.” The reason Four Seasons “feels” this way is because these are the qualities of this neighborhood and it is one of the major functions of our Homeowners’ Association (HOA) to foster and promote those qualities which make Four Seasons such a desirable place to live.
The directors of our HOA welcome homeowner comments, questions and suggestions. The directors’ names and contact numbers are published regularly in the monthly Newsletter and can be found on this web site. We look forward to meeting and greeting you and extending our personal welcome to this special place we call “Four Seasons.”
The Board of Directors Four Seasons Homeowners Association P.O. Box 2105 ♦ Beaverton, OR 97075
Four Seasons Homeowners Association
In December, 1969 the Four Seasons Homeowners Association was organized and incorporated under Chapter 94, Oregon Annotated Statutes. It operates in accordance with the statutes, its by-laws and its Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R). A copy of the by-laws and CC&R is provided to each homeowner at the time of closing. They are also available on the Association’s website. Three neighborhoods are within Four Seasons – Summerville Square, Crystalbrook and The Villas – each have an additional HOA to address the specific needs of each area.
Each household/owner within Four Seasons is a member of the Association and is entitled to one vote at the Annual Meeting. The Association is governed by a 5 member board of directors each elected to a 2 year term. Elections are staggered with 2 directors elected on even numbered years and 3 elected on odd numbered years. There are no limits on the number of terms a director may serve. Elections are held at the Association’s Annual Meeting during the first week in December. The Board elects its own officers and makes committee assignments at its first meeting after the Annual Meeting.
Regular meetings of the Board are held monthly. The exact date, time and place will be published in the Four Seasons Newsletter. As Association members, all homeowners are invited to attend Board meetings. In the interest of time, homeowners who have issues and/or items for Board consideration are asked to contact the Board’s President at least 3 days prior to the meeting to assure a place on the agenda.
