Board Bulletin March 19

We Need More Ballots by March 22 to achieve the required quorum for the meeting!
Please Vote Now, Everybody
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association Annual Meeting is March 24, less than two weeks away.  This year’s meeting will be held online only and all voting completed by absentee ballot.  All absentee ballots must be received by Monday, March 22.  We need your absentee votes, or proxy, to reach meeting quorum requirements.  If we do not receive enough ballots (or proxies) for quorum, the meeting will be suspended until the needed number of ballots is attained -- thus postponing the vote count for the annual assessment and Board candidates.
The absentee ballot and meeting materials are in the Annual Meeting packet that was mailed to you.  Ballots may be dropped off at one of three Loch Alpine officer addresses listed on the ballot; or sent by fax to (734) 663-0809, or scanned and emailed to Select Community Management at
To join the online meeting:
  • Use this link to register for the annual meeting:   After you complete your registration, you will receive a message from AASA with a Click Here to Join link. This is your individual entry link to join the meeting on March 24th.  The message will also include a phone number you can use to dial in to the meeting for audio access only (for those without access to a computer or other device).  This link can only be used for meeting access by one device, so please don't forward your individual entry link to others.
  • Between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, open the AASA message and click on your link (or dial the phone number) to join the meeting, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. 
Please review your Annual Meeting packet beforehand and have it handy during the meeting, as there will be limited information shown on the screen during the meeting. If you have not received your Annual Meeting packet, call Select Community Management at (734) 663-1900 or login to the Documents section of this website to access the meeting materials and a copy of the ballot.
Yard Waste Pick-up Starts April 6
Seasonal weekly yard waste pick-up will begin Tuesday, April 6. Be sure your material is placed street-side no later than 7 a.m.  Yard waste may be placed in large, craft/paper bags or loose in your own, reusable container with a "yard waste" or "compost" sticker on the container (available from GFL or Scio Township).  Please do not tape yard bags -- fold them closed or leave them open at the top.  GFL will also pick up properly bundled branches no thicker than 3 inches in diameter tied in bundles no greater than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter.  
For a better looking Loch Alpine, please remember that yard waste is placed out, as with trash containers and other collectables, no sooner than the day before trash pickup day; and empty containers are to be removed that day. Thank you, from LAIA Grounds Committee. 
Community Yard Sale Postponed
Due to ongoing concerns about outdoor gatherings and public health into the spring, the LAIA Board of Directors and the event coordinator have determined that the annual Loch Alpine Community Yard Sale should not be held in May.  We are hopeful that the event will be rescheduled for sometime in late summer or early fall.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.
