New Update on "Old 8000 Area
On April 11th, the Board of Directors sent a letter to
the township offering $50,000 for the land that was for
sale for $70,100. We were met with a counter offer on
April 22, 2015 by Ann Richards of $60,000. The Village
Board felt that $50,000 was a fair and reasonable offer
and decided to have the township board approve or deny
our $50,000 offer. At the township board meeting on
April 25, 2016, the township voted unanimously to accept
our $50,000 offer. We are waiting for a purchase
agreement from them to finalize the deal. Once we
finalize everything with the purchase, we will send a
letter out letting you know the amount of the assessment
for each homeowner. We will keep you posted!!
We wanted to post an update on the potential
purchase of the "Old 8000 Area". The following is what
was printed in our February/March edition of our
As some of you may have heard by now,
the Township has decided to sell the property located
directly south of the clubhouse, commonly referred to
as the “Old 8000 Area”. The initial asking price for
the property is $70,100.00 for approximately 62 acres
of land. Our concern is that if it were to be sold on
the open market, it could be developed into something
that could be detrimental to the Villages and
negatively affect our property values. The Villages
would have very little say into any development and it
would NOT be a part of the Homeowners Association.
Therefore, we are in the beginning stages of
discussions with the Township regarding the possible
purchase of this property. If this were to happen, the
worst case scenario is that it would result in a
special ONE TIME assessment of $100.00 OR LESS per
home owner depending on the final purchase price of
the property. The Township has agreed to give us right
of first refusal prior to offering the property on the
open market. However, they won’t wait forever for our
decision. The Board of Directors is very conscientious
as to how we spend the homeowners’ money. We feel that
this is something that will affect us all and value
your opinions and thoughts. In the meantime, the
office staff or any Board member can address any
questions or concerns you might have.
~Randy Moore, President
We also wanted to let you know
that as of today, February 18, 2016, we have not made
any decisions on whether or not to purchase the property
yet. We are still in the process of doing our due
diligence and research to make sure this is a smart
purchase to make for our residents and community. Please
feel free to contact the office or a board member for
any updates. We will try to keep this site updated as
much as we can as well as our Facebook page. Stay Tuned!
