David Dunlop gave an update on the rezoning request for the “Quarry” at Kimmick and Rosa Parks. The board approved Dave to be the HOA’s voice in the hearing to be held December 20. We are against the rezoning.

There was a short discussion on whether or not to become a gated community. It was determined that this would be undoable. It would cost tens of thousands of dollars, HOA fees would need to be increased dramatically, and its probable that the street layout wouldn’t even allow it in the first place.
