Agenda for the Meeting
We will be approving the minutes of the last meeting, held in the fall of 2016, which have been available for review on our website for many months (Click Here). We will hear the financial report from our Treasurer, a report on Aging in Place, and the President's report on the activities of groups and committees that have generated considerable movement forward in our community over the past year. In addition, the winners of the East Cleveland Forest Hill Park Photo contest will be announced and awards presented. We will hear a little on home restoration from Jamain Owen, who, this summer, won a second award for the restoration of Forest Hills Boulevard in Cleveland Heights. In addition, we just heard yesterday that we are going to be able to hear from Ken Kuehnle, the attorney who recently completed a review of our covenants, concluding that based on the covenants we do not qualify as an Ohio Planned Community. Ken will be talking to us from Columbus using face-time. Finally, we will vote the 2018/2019 slate of trustees. This meeting is for members of Forest Hill Home Owners Association Inc. only (any resident of Forest Hill who is a deed holder or spouse or partner of a deed holder whose Forest Hill home is their full-time residence.) The meeting is for FHHO members to hear about the activities of the association over the past year and will proceed without disruptions according to the above agenda. If there are special interest groups that want to focus on specific topics,, a future town hall will be the proper forum in which to follow up on these single-item issues.
The nominating committee is looking for energetic, community-minded residents to serve as trustees for 2018/2019. Previously, the Board has consisted of as many as 50 Trustees. This year, the Board voted to reduce the number to 15.
In evaluating nominations, the committee will consider factors such as the candidate’s commitment and willingness to serve energetically and in a collaborative manner both on committees and by promoting FHHO in the community and Cities of Cleveland Heights or East Cleveland, The committee will also consider whether specific needs of FHHO, e.g. fundraising, legal, marketing expertise, community engagement as well as diversity of representation, are covered by the proposed slate.
For candidates who have served as trustees previously, the committee will evaluate their previous contribution. They will also consider whether these trustees fulfilled the legal fiduciary responsibilities of a board member and volunteered their time in the best interests of FHHO and the community.
According to the current bylaws of FHHO, to be eligible for consideration as a trustee, you must:
Be a resident homeowner [or resident domestic partner] (bylaws, Article II) of a deed-restricted home within the area encompassed by the Forest Hill Home Owners’ Association Inc.
Have made your annual contribution (Article II).
