80/20 Committee – Survey Results and Next Steps

In late September, a brief interest survey was sent to property owners of Evergreen POA. The summary of the survey results we received is listed below and confirms there is considerable interest in changing the current covenant.  We appreciate that many of you responded to this survey. Many respondents commented that our voting is our voice and not voting is silence.

Beginning in December, the committee will begin its campaign to change the rules with an informational brochure. We are in need of at least fifteen (15) volunteers to serve as “captains”.  These “captains” will communicate with residents, answer questions, and assist in getting all 299 property owners to vote.  If you would like to be a part of this committee and help us move Evergreen Property Owners forward, kindly email Tim Flannery at

At the Board of Directors meeting held on October 19, 2020, Debi Hoefer was appointed to fill the seat recently vacated by Rhonda Schaefer.  Rhonda has sold her home in the Evergreen Club, and thus cannot continue to serve on the Board.  The new appointment expires in March 2021, in conjunction with Rhonda’s original term, and the Board thanks Rhonda for her service to the Board and her community.  Below is Debi’s short bio to help you become familiar with the new Board member and her background:
