Re:     Update from your WUOA Board of Directors

Date:   20 January 2021  

First off, a belated Happy New Year and I trust that everyone is doing their best to maintain a healthy life / lifestyle during these challenging times. On behalf of your WUOA Board of Directors I would like to take this opportunity to provide a brief update on the operation and maintenance of our Winterhaven Condos and other issues of relevance to our Association. 

First off, we have had some shuffling of our Board members and positions. Cindy Sowder resigned from our Board and Brigitte Morgan is now on the Board. The current slate of Board members is as follows:

Dwayne Porter (President)
Laurie Pate (Vice President)
Dave Asher (Treasurer)
Krista Fink (Secretary)
Greg Blackburn
Josh Warden
Brigitte Morgan

Thanks to Cindy for her service to the WUOA and welcome Brigitte! All Board members can be reached via the email addresses used in this email or you can send an email to wuoabod@gmail.com. Our WUOA website is still active at http://www.condosatwinterplace.com/.

Most of you are aware that Judy Hoops resigned her position as the WUOA Managing Agent and is enjoying a new phase of her life in FL! We owe Judy a debt of gratitude for all that she and Stefan did for our WUOA over the years! The WUOA has hired Cindy Sowder as our new Managing Agent. James (Jamie) Reeves has been hired as part-time maintenance support. We have also retained the services of TR Tax based in Beckley for bookkeeping services.  

Now that we are in the midst of ski season, some additional information to pass along. Rentals of the lodge are strong with weekends booked through at least the end of February. Good news is that the lighting for our parking area has been repaired and we again have a well lit parking area. The gravel road leading to our parking area and condos though, at least as of last week, was in very poor condition and in need of maintenance. Cindy has reached out to Winterplace concerning the condition of the road. The road is full of deep ruts and potholes making passage for vehicles with limited clearance a challenge even in the best of weather.

We have also been made aware that concerns have been raised about loitering in the parking area and hassling of housekeeping staff and possibly of visitors and renters. This is not acceptable behavior and absolutely not a situation that any housekeeping staff, guests, or owners should ever be exposed to or encounter. We had a similar issue several years ago and the Board is reviewing options to address this issue to best ensure the safety of all our owners, guests, renters and housekeeping staff. In the event of such situations we encourage all to report such activities to rental managers of individual units and / or our WUOA Managing Agent (Cindy). In the event any person feels their safety is in danger they should move to a safe location and call 911.

If you have any questions, concerns, comments, ideas, etc. please do not hesitate to contact myself or any of our Board members.

Stay healthy!
