Board Bulletin March 13
Posted on Mar 14th, 2022

Please Vote Now, Everybody
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association Annual Meeting is March 23, less than two weeks away. This year’s meeting will be held online only and all voting completed by absentee ballot. We need your absentee votes, or proxy, to reach meeting quorum requirements. All absentee ballots must be received by Monday, March 21. 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 and the link to register for the meeting online are in the Annual Meeting packet that was mailed to you. Ballots may be mailed to Select Community Management, or sent by fax to (734) 663-0809, or scanned and emailed to, or dropped off at one of three Loch Alpine board director addresses listed on the ballot.
To register for the Annual Meeting, use the link in the information packet. After you complete your registration, you will receive a message with a Click Here to Join link. This is your individual entry link to join the meeting on March 23. 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 23, 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.
Think Spring!
The Loch Alpine Garden Club is pleased to sponsor the Living Color Fundraiser this spring. A nursery located in southeast Michigan supplies the plants, which include all the popular spring annual flowers as well as a selection of vegetable starters for your home gardens. Please look through the brochure Garden Club members will distribute next week throughout Loch Alpine and return your order by Wednesday, April 6th to the drop box listed on the brochure you receive. The plants will be delivered to Loch Alpine between May 16 and 29. The exact date will be emailed to you when we have it. Click here for a PDF copy of the full color brochure. Drop off boxes will be available at three locations in Loch Alpine: 4259 Fairway Drive, 4257 Crestline Drive, and 3674 Greenook Blvd. Orders cannot be accepted beyond the April 6th deadline.

Anyone interested in joining the Loch Alpine Garden Club is welcome to contact Roberta Nerison-Low:, or Adrienne Royce: We host informational programs and maintain the pollinator garden below the recreation field at the lake park. The Loch Alpine Garden Club has a Facebook page where you can find out more about what we do. We welcome anyone interested in learning about gardening, or anyone who just welcomes a chance to meet new people while gardening with us in Loch Alpine’s lake park! No experience necessary! 
Yard Waste Pick-up Starts April 5
Seasonal weekly yard waste pick-up will begin Tuesday, April 5. 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.
