Another great year here on St Croix! The linemen are still here installing new composite poles all around the island, and have almost completed the installation throughout our area. Luckily, Hurricane Dorian passed over us quickly, and other than that it was a rather quiet Hurricane season. You will be receiving a News Letter which will bring you up to date with GAPOA events and other news.
This year’s Board of Directors has continued to work hard for its membership.
The Collections Committee has been in contact with members with past due assessments and has collected on several of these accounts to bring them current.
Roads Committee has continued brush cutting and grading this year and completed road sign installation and paved sections of four roads this year.
The Beach Committee held a cleanup on January 20th where approximately 1500 pounds of trash was removed from Turner Hole, Grapetree and Smuggler’s beaches. The information campaign continues to inform GAPOA community residents about beach-related issues like sea-turtle etiquette and the dangers of plastic waste. The Annual Beach Party was held in March, and continues to be a fun way for neighbors to meet and mingle..
The Architectural Committee had a quiet year, they reviewed and approved two new homes.
The Nomination Committee has been working to keep our Board and Committee positions filled. We are in need of someone to head up the Legal Committee, anyone with a legal background who would be able to assist, would be greatly appreciated.
The Annual Meeting will be held January 18, 2020 at 4pm at the St Croix Yacht Club. There will be a buffet and cash bar, if you’re on island, stop by to say hello to your neighbors.
