Board Bits - February
Posted on Jan 28th, 2019
by  Gayle Hinman, President


You may have noticed that Great Oaks did some tree maintenance within Lenox Park in early January. They are starting to prepare for a comprehensive tree maintenance program that Kevin Ashlin, Great Oaks Certified Arborist, submitted to improve the health and appearance of the evergreens planted within our community. The Board of Directors accepted the proposal and asked Kevin to summarize the project in order to inform the residents regarding the process, importance and value of this project. 

Budget Bits - January
Posted on Jan 16th, 2019

by  Mike Bossio, Treasurer

The Operating Budget at the end of the 2018 year closed strong with a balance of $163,095.55. The Reserve Fund (RF) total increased to $763,244.01. We are very pleased with these results as we will start 2019 in a very good financial position. The budget clearly performed as expected.

I indicated that if the budget continued to perform as it had all year, I would recommend to the Board to transfer some money to the RF. That discussion is ongoing. Before we can make any transfer, we will have to make sure we understand all of the future 2019 spending requirements. For example, the rust on our concrete continues to be a major concern and we are investigating methods to get rid of the rust and to keep it off. We will inform you of our efforts through the Website as this investigation matures and we have a better understanding of the efficacy of the method to be used and its cost to the community. More later. That’s it for now. I will continue to keep you apprised of our performance on a monthly basis.

2019’s Top Dog Breeds For Seniors
By Gayle C. Hinman on February 16, 2019
In case you may be interested the following dog breeds have been recommended for seniors living in apartments or condos. They require little to no grooming and some moderate exercise. I found a few of the breeds surprising. 2019’s Top Dog Breeds For Seniors: Beagle, Pomeranian, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Shih Tzu, Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Boston Terrier, Poodle, Bolognese Schipperke , Chinese Crested, Cairn Terrier , Jack Russell Terrier, Bichon Frise, Dachshund, Pekingese, Greyhound, Dandie Dinmont Terrier , Golden Retriever, Maltese. I’m sure there are more suggestions, but these are at least a few to think about. REMEMBER there are always many loving animals to rescue.
12 Mile & Novi Road intersection

Long overdue improvements coming to 12 Mile & Novi Road intersection

Glad to finally be able to announce that this summer, with the help of the Road Commission for Oakland County, the intersection of 12 Mile and Novi Road (also know as the moon's surface) is being replaced. This has been a priority for City Council for a number of years and was scheduled to be done by the County in 2021. We didn't want to wait that long so the City is going to front a good portion of the money and be reimbursed by Oakland County. Now before everyone uses this thread to complain about other roads, I would invite you to visit http://bit.ly/2GKXieL and see who is responsible for what roads. I know Ten Mile Road is always a hot topic, and that is an RCOC road. They are planning some pavement preservation overlay work on it this summer and are undertaking a scoping study to look at what the road looks like in the future.

Fox Run Building
By Gayle C. Hinman on February 7, 2019

Taken from: NEXTDOOR NEIGHBOR & submitted by a local resident:
Did anyone else get the notice from the Department of Environmental Quality, SE Michigan Division, about Fox Run's application to build 2 more senior living buildings? They want to drain yet more wetlands and the DEQ will make the determination to give them permission to do so without a public hearing if there are not comments from the public. They only give you 20 days from the notice which, perhaps due to bad weather, is dated Jan. 29, yet I just got this today, Feb. 6. We only have until Feb. 17 and that is a Sunday. PLEASE JOIN ME in voicing our dismay at the loss of even more of our wetlands and with it the beauty, wildlife, drainage, oxygen production and much more, forever. Contact Sue Tepatti at tepattis@michigan.govor call the office at 586-753-3700. You must reference the application number which is either: 63-41215 Fox Run Dr-Novi or HNJ-Q013-CWAJX You can also comment on their website: https://miwaters.deq.state.mi.us/waters/#/external/publicnotice/searchClick on the documents tab The objections, so the notice says, should be factual, specific, and fully describe the reasons for the objection. Let's flood them with concerns big and small so they get the message clearly that we want a say. I implore you to not be complacent on this issue."
