UNIT 6 MEETING TO CHANGE COVENANTS – JUNE 13, 2013
Pine Forest Investment Group, LLC (“PFIG”) has under contract over 300 lots in Unit 6, out of a total of over 700, and is proposing to amend the Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions of unit 6 to allow PFIG to develop the subdivision. The amendment will remove Unit 6 from the jurisdiction of the Pine Forest Property Owners’ Association, Inc. PFPOA has approved establishing a separate Corporation to administer the Covenants for Unit 6. The new Corporation will be known as The Reserve at Pine Forest Property Owners’ Association, Inc.
A development period extending from the date the new Unit 6 CCRs are approved until the earlier of a) the date PFIG no longer owns any lots or b) the expiration of 8 years will be created during which PFIG will appoint members of the Reserve Architectural Control Committee, and will vote their lots for Directors of the new Association along with the homeowners. At the end of the development period the homeowners will elect their own ACC.
In addition, there will be provisions for assessment and collection of fees for new road construction, sewers and other infrastructure imposed upon each lot that lacks such infrastructure. All completed homes with the necessary roads, sewers, power and other infrastructure will be exempt, except for completed homes on corner lots that abut an unpaved right of way.
While passage of the proposed CCRs may be a foregone conclusion because of the lots PFIG is entitled to vote, you should attend a Unit 6 Owner’s meeting to be hosted by PFPOA at 7:00 PM June 13th at the upstairs training room at the First National Bank Building 118 Hwy 71 (across Hasler Blvd. from HEB) to hear PFIG’s presentation and voice any concerns you may have.

All structures must be approved, in writing, by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Failure to comply with this Covenant requirement can result in SUBSTANTIAL FINES. A permit must be filed and approved, in writing, by the ACC before construction begins.
Permit fees are $500 for new homes or additions to living areas. While an approved permit is required for all structures, there is no charge for permitting additional, non-living area, structures. This includes swimming pools, fences, retaining walls, driveways, storage buildings, patio/deck additions above ground level, to mention a few.
Failure to secure a permit before starting construction will incur another $1,000 fine. If the Property Owners’ Association is forced the hire a lawyer to enforce compliance, the lot owner will be additionally charged for all legal costs with a minimum charge of $1,500 for legal fees. This legal fee applies to all enforcement actions, whether for new construction or simple compliance with the Covenants by existing homeowners.

After verifying each ballot, including a final check of several deed records, the Secretary of PFPOA was able to certify on April 17, 2013 the official count of votes cast for and against the proposed CCRs at the Owners’ meeting held April 11, 2013 .
The official count regarding the Amendments to the CC&R’s is as follows:
Negative votes = 28 (20%)
Affirmative votes = 112 (80% – 49 floor votes and 63 proxy votes)
The votes in favor of the proposed CCRs were in excess of the required 66 2/3rds percent. Therefore the proposed CCRs were ratified on April 11, 2013 and have been delivered to the Clerk of Bastrop County for recording.
