2021 HOA Dues
At our recent HOA board meeting, a decision was made to increase the annual dues for 2021 by $50.00. This amounts to a $45.00 increase for the road replacement fund and a $5.00 increase to offset increased insurance cost. While we realize this is a sizable increase, it is necessary to keep our road replacement fund on track to avoid a sizable special assessment in the future. Our roads, our biggest expense, are tentatively scheduled for replacement in 2027.  As many of you know, a special meeting was held in January of 2019 to explain our long term road plan. Over 30 people attended and many favorable comments for the proposed road plan were received.  This increase will bring the 2021 dues to a total of $555.00, which are due January 1st, 2021.
Thank you for your attention, Ruben Heeszel for the DH3 board
Fall Social and Beyond
As the new social coordinators for DH3, we realize there is usually a fall gathering in our neighborhood.  However, due to the Covid pandemic, we feel that it is a good idea to not have a potluck this fall.  As we see how things change this fall and into 2021 we will see if social gatherings can take place.  We look forward to visiting with you in the near future!
Ardell Hodges and Elaine Anderson, DH3 East Social Chairs
