We are advising folks to wait until after the UOC meeting on next Wed at 9 AM at the Community Center to respond to this Survey Monkey survey prematurely sent out by the PLCA Board. The letter from WCI VP Paul Erhardt suggests 4 possible alternatives and asks for resident and UOC and CRC written comments and suggestions. He does not suggest a survey.
It is unreasonable for PLCA to ask residents to respond to 4 plans without some discussion of the implications for the community of each. After the assembly of Voting Representatives of the UOC and the CRC (Colony Resident’s Council) discuss and consider each option, their recommendations and reasoning will be shared with residents. This is the better way to vet the possibilities and share recommendations and this should have preceded the sending of a survey … which is why we are asking residents not to respond to a hastily compiled survey with very limited information that usurps the proper process.
We have already sent a proposal for discussion to the UOC chairs. But, at this point our suggestion would be that you wait until the Voting Representatives of the UOC provide a reasoned set of recommendations which we will post on this Blog (pelicanlandingblog.com) quickly in an effort to educate us all to the implications of these proposals or to suggest alternatives or modifications for submission to WCI.
We will say this much at this point: Both B and D would not pass legal challenge under our documents as they are both at large voting plans. B is the plan the PLCA Board recommends. A is incredibly inequitable and would therefore we believe not survive a legal challenge. C is the closest to the documents and the one we suggest modifications to. But this along with any other suggested modifications should be discussed and debated before any final recommendations are made.
The most sensible thing we should do is to allow more time for community education and discussion. There is no rush about this. We will have elections in March for 2 new Board members and RBC supports and hopes they will include Judy Neyhart current co-chair of the UOC and JoAnn Holt a CPA and Forensic auditor (both talents would be highly valuable on the Board) will win and set a new direction of openness for our PLCA Board.
Feel free to share this with any you would like.
