The Runoff Election will take place on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 7:00pm. The sole purpose of this Runoff Election will be to elect a candidate (either Jay Aronowitz or Madeleine Galvin) for the fourth seat on the board.

The meeting will be held virtually; however, there is in an option for homeowners to attend physically (virtually preferred for safety reasons). The physical location for attendance will be at the clubhouse located at 7550 Thomas Grant Drive. Considering social distancing requirements, only a limited number of homeowners may attend physically. 
Please note that neither candidates nor board members (except the board president and management) will be attending physically in order to ensure there is sufficient room for those homeowners who want to attend physically.
