IMQ UPDATE 20170209 EMAIL CAMPAIGN

IMQ UPDATE 20170209

UPDATE
Iron Mountain Quarry (IMQ) Legal Fund Disposition

By reviewing additional old records, the PLVC has found documentation that “any funds not used will be returned on a prorata basis.” The records are incomplete regarding the list of donors. We have some indications in the PLVC Minutes, some envelopes with amounts written on them and some recollections
from directors at the time.

The funds not used total $3,645 of the $52,700 that was contributed. That means that the amount to be returned would be 6.92% of the amount contributed. Said another way, if someone had contributed $100, they would now be eligible to receive a $6.92 refund.

PLVC will be happy to refund monies based on this calculation. If you would like a refund, please contact us by clicking HERE. We will research what records we do have or will ask that you provide some documentation of your contribution. Documentation does not need to be a cancelled check or anything overly formal, but a listing from a check register or something similar.

If you do not advise us by March 15, 2017, that you would desire a refund, we will be consolidating the remaining balance into operating funds of PLVC which will be used in fulfillment of our mission to be a unifying force within the Community.

Yours truly,
Bill Dean, President

IMQ FUNDS CONSOLIDATION 20170203 EMAIL CAMPAIGN

IMQ FUNDS CONSOLIDATION 20170203

Iron Mountain Funds to be Consolidated

1. The PLVC has maintained $3,645.00, in a separate Iron Mountain Quarry (IMQ) checking account since November 1, 2012. This represents 6.92% of the $52,700.00, of the known PLVC IMQ activity funding.

2. The Board of Directors has not found any records indicating any directions or requests from contributors about how any unspent funds should be used.

3. Accordingly, unless sufficient documentation is provided to the Board by March 15, 2017, establishing that the funds were contributed on the condition that unspent amounts were to be refunded to the contributors or otherwise used in some specified way, and establishing that any particular contributors are entitled to a particular refund or to some other particular disposition of the remaining unspent funds, then the Board will assume that those funds are not subject to special restrictions on use and will apply those funds to whatever PLVC purposes the Board deems appropriate.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 20161005 EMAIL CAMPAIGN

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 20161005

What is the PLVC to our community? It has been considered the charter organization of this community to act as the unifying force to focus on the best interests of all citizens to include the Ludlow Maintenance Commission and the South Bay Community Association, as well as citizens not included within these footprints; yet, living in the Master Planned Resort (MPR). The PLVC strives to building consensus among the residents, merchants and property owners of this fine community.

The Village Council is not here to supplant any organization but to enhance all community neighborhoods, social organization, home owner associations, local business and spiritual organizations. The Port Ludlow Village Council has been here to be the conduit and voice for the entire community to local and state government. It engages in lawful political lobbying activities which has been clearly evident with the continued dialogue with Jefferson County, Port Ludlow Associates over our perplexing timber harvesting of the MPR surrounding forested properties. This past year the PLVC initiated several community focused actions that will continue to inform and support Port Ludlow citizens and stay-the-course to advance our community.

Other undertakings include the revision of our web site www.plvc.org making it an easier and friendlier communication device which now includes all meeting dates and locations, our committees’ minutes and ever emergent archives with a powerful search engine. To augment the web site, we have initiated the Constant Contact eBlast system that has positive means for one more additional communication mode for Port Ludlow.

The promotion of the largest Welcoming Committee event this year in Port Ludlow included many new residents and purveyors. It was a great success and we look forward to this type of introduction in 2017.

The independence of the Trails Committee under rock-solid leadership has added, improved and maintained a network of 20 plus miles of safe hiking routes made available to this community. To augment the Trails Committee, we have a newly formed Roadway Safety group to enhance the pedestrian right-of-way along Oak Bay and Paradise Bay Roads.

Emergency is a word that is used as a last resort and considered out-of-mind, out-of-site until it presents its ugly head. We now have an emergency planning document, soon to be published, that will provide all home owners a how-to book to prepare for situations from earthquakes to forest fires. I am looking forward to the community forum to present this valuable emergency preparedness information.

It is important to recognize there is a power behind those chairpersons that make the PLVC committees a tremendous success. While I do not know all of individual serving on the various PLVC committees, please accept a sincere thank you from the Board for making Port Ludlow an unbelievably nice place to live. Furthermore, please recognize these chairpersons Linda Haskin, Caleb Summerfelt, Larry Nobles, Barbara Berthiaume, Phil Otness, Steve Failla, Steve Frenzl and Larry Scott for their vision and leadership.

Thank you to the Presidents of the LMC and SBCA, Ron Racki and Gill Skinner, for their participation as PLVC board members this past year. It is always a good thing to have the views and opinions of our two master HOA organizations. All too often the master associations’ goals are uniquely different than that of the PLVC; yet, somehow should be simpatico with the Council to enrich our community.

A special recognition must go to three individuals that have worked and Chaired several committees; but very importantly, spent significant time and personal expense working on the AdHoc Timber Harvest Committee. Dave Jurca, Dave McDearmid and its chair Bill Dean.

Thank you to all of our Master Planned Resort citizens that made financial contributions to the Council. Without those dollars your Council would have a difficult time to financially support our business operations which includes the Voice, and committees which include Trails, Community Welcome, Holiday lights, Emergency Preparedness and Communications.

Thanks to the fine people that live in Port Ludlow for making this past year serving on the board a humble and rewarding experience. I am now looking forward to this coming year to see what trailblazing enhancements the Port Ludlow Village Council will have to offer this great community.

Thank you,
Mike Nilssen,
PLVC President

ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION AND BYLAWS 20160902

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS CHANGES TO PLVC ARTICLES AND BYLAWS

AT THE ANNUAL MEETING ON OCTOBER 6, 2016, AT 3PM at the Bay Club, the PLVC board will submit the proposed amendments to the Voting Members for approval. Please let the board know if you have any questions or concerns about the proposed amendments.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions or express concerns at the board workshop on September 20th at 3 pm at the Beach Club. The PLVC Board of Directors has submitted for approval by the Voting Members at the October 6, 2016 Annual Meeting, amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. PLVC is unlike LMC and SBCA in that it is not a homeowners association. It is a nonprofit corporation whose fundamental mission is to be a “unifying force” in promoting and protecting the general interests of the Port Ludlow community. Its Voting Members are owners of real property within the Port Ludlow Master Planned Resort (“MPR”) who have either voted at the last PLVC Annual Meeting or have provided a written notice to the Board of Directors asking to become a Voting Member. The board encourages all owners of property within the MPR to become Voting Members and to participate actively in PLVC.
