Even if you plan to attend, you are strongly encouraged to complete and return the Proxy Form which you received in the mail so that a quorum may be obtained. Proxy forms are also available at the HOA office. You can change your proxy at any time before the meeting, or you can rescind it and vote at the meeting. We suggest that you sign your Proxy as directed, naming another owner or, in the case of a non-resident Owner, the Lessee of such Owner’s Home, or the management agent as your designated proxy (instructed proxies only). If you do not have a person in mind to designate as your proxy, you may assign it to the Secretary of the Broadlands Board of Directors. This will allow us to establish a quorum and to run the meeting on time.
We thank you for your assistance and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting!

Stone House Update

The Stone House is slated for roof replacement, front porch replacement, and exterior wall stabilization in 2014. The repair work has been solicited by the Stone House Committee, approved by the Board of Directors, and will be performed by Cochran Stone Masonry & Timberframing.

Cochran is on site starting on the reconstruction of the front porch.  The deconstruction includes removing of the large shrubs in front of the building as well as the concrete flooring, roofing, footers, and columns. Once final plans are approved by the county and weather conditions permit, Cochran will begin the building process for a new front porch.

After the porch is completed, the limestone mortar injections will be done.  This work cannot be done until the threat of freeze has subsided or the mortar can be protected from freezing.  The building will receive a new metal roof, as well as trim soffits, rake and fascia boards.  The upper walls and chimneys currently being stabilized by two interior gables will be reconstructed where they are currently failing, which is on the top floor.
