Monthly Meeting Highlights
October Monthly Meeting
The monthly meeting was held on October 21 at 7:00 pm at the Lenexa Public Market. In attendance was Martha, Judy, Denise, Michelle, Janet, Kevin, and Treka. The board members presented proposals for budgetary needs for the 2020 year. The group reviewed a 5 year plan and we are proposing a 3% increase in HOA dues for 2020, from $520 to $535. The increase takes into account the changes in contract and maintenance costs for trash, landscaping and pool.
All residents are encouraged to attend any of the monthly meetings. The next meeting will be on Monday, November 18. Please note details of the annual meeting below.

The pool area will be getting some additional sturdy table and chairs to ring in next pool season. For questions or concerns regarding the pool, a pool key, or info about renting the pool, please contact Michelle Kring at email@example.com.

This month's meeting came with a bit of sad news. Our Social Chair, Janet Lien served several years on our neighborhood's HOA Board and has graciously requested to have the position of Social Chair to be listed as a vacant position. If there is any interest within the neighborhood for anyone to step up and volunteer to be the Social Chair, please email the HOA Board at email@example.com or one of the Board Members directly. This position will be voted on at the Annual Meeting in December. Details above.
For those who are interested in what the position may entail, please contact Janet Lien at firstname.lastname@example.org or the BWP email address.
Janet, thank you for bringing some smiles to our kiddos' faces! You have definitely made this neighborhood a great one to live in!
Big thanks to our Social Committee for keeping the festive spirit alive and well in the Brookwood Place Neighborhood!
Just as a reminder, when considering any exterior projects, please contact Kevin Knipp at email@example.com. The project must be approved before the work has begun. This includes new roofs, painting the exterior of your home (even if it is the same color choice) and any project for the outside of your home. We want to ensure that the work aligns with the bylaws.
