HOA Annual Meeting set for October 7

This year’s HOA Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 7 at the Nocatee Welcome Center’s second floor ballroom. All homeowners are welcome and encouraged to attend.

A mailing with more details should have arrived in homeowners’ mailboxes this week. If you can’t attend this year’s meeting, please fill out and submit a proxy form so that a quorum can be obtained to conduct any matters that may need a vote.

A copy of the 2022 proposed operating budget with detailed budget assumptions is available here or can be found at the top of the Documents page of this website. The proposed budget reflects no change in the HOA fee from 2021.

Any questions regarding any of these materials should be directed to our property manager, Anna Hornstein, at First Coast Association Management Company. She can be reached at 904-998-5365 ext. 231 or at anna@firstcoastam.com.

Applications for HOA Board due by September 9

Once again it’s time to consider whether you’d like to help your community by running for the HOA Board or by joining one of its committees.

Letters to each homeowner are arriving in the mail now with instructions to submit an application to the Association by no later than Thursday, September 9. Additional information about what to submit and to where is included on this application form.

As stated in the letter, board members serve terms of only one year and, as Brookwood is a moderate size community, the time and efforts demanded are minimal with only quarterly meetings.

Homeowners will receive a ballot by mail to vote before the annual meeting at 7pm on Thursday, October 7, at the Nocatee Welcome Center.

If you are interested in serving in a different capacity than on the board, please call our property manager, Anna Hornstein, at 904-717-9231 to inquire about our active committees.

HOA Board Welcomes New Member

After establishing a quorum, it was announced that the HOA Board of Directors now consists of Bill Fitzgerald, Karen Higgins and Ty Blake at this year’s annual meeting held last week. Ty is a new member of the board with Bill and Karen continuing their service.

It was also announced that a 2021 Operating Budget was passed that reflects no change in homeowners’ fees from the previous year.

After the meeting, the board members decided among themselves that Bill will be the board president, Karen will continue as vice president and Ty will be treasurer/secretary. In practice, the president officially calls and runs the board meetings, but all three members address issues and finances associated with the HOA.

A big thank you to Elaine Prisby who presided as president of the board since its inception until she resigned from the post on October 1. Among her accomplishments while on the board were negotiating additional playground equipment when the developer did not put in a second park; staying on top of vendors such as our landscaping company to ensure all work was carried out in a timely manner; working with an arborist to address issues associated with neighborhood street trees; with her husband, Henry, planting annuals at both entrances, and most recently ensuring that two deteriorating slides were replaced at the playground.

Elaine intends to stay involved with the HOA, especially on the property committee. All board members encourage other community members to help on committees if they are not already involved.
