Dear OLHOA Member,

In late April of this year, an open meeting was held at the Senior Center after the then Board had scheduled and then cancelled an open meeting.  A percentage of the HOA attended and a number of concerns were raised regarding the then Board, most of whom were considered suspended for failing to follow the 2019 HOA law enacted by the NM State Legislature.  A number of good suggestions were offered by HOA members at that meeting including the suggestion we have another open meeting for all who wanted to attend.
Shortly after this meeting, two members of the then Board immediately resigned and a third put his home on the market.  Following the HOA Bylaws, the remaining members Gary Zedalis, Mark Anthony and Barry Barker appointed two new members to the Board – Dwight Bozarth and Mark Montoya.  This was followed by Barker’s resignation and pending move.  The new Board appointed Jerry Peterson to fill the spot vacated by Barker.  We have since had to fill Dwight Bozarth’s position as Treasurer, due to his unavailability to attend regularly scheduled meetings.  He was recently replaced by former Treasurer, Dorothy Curry.  The recent additions will serve until the January annual meeting where 4 positions will be open for election.
The reconstituted Board then voted to open all Board meetings to HOA members and sent notices to that effect to HOA members and have continued to do so.  We have not held another open Town Hall meeting yet but are announcing one for September 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Placitas Library. The Board will meet at 5:00 p.m. and this is an open meeting as well.  We have some suggestions that we would like to share and would like your ideas about how to make this a more inclusive place to live.
Please join us on September 14, at the Placitas Library for either or both of the meetings.
Open Board Meeting – 5:00 p.m.
OLHOA Town Hall – 6:00 p.m.
