LAIA Annual Meeting March 23
Loch Alpine’s annual meeting for Association Members will be held Thursday, March 23 at 7:30 pm. As noted previously, the Board is planning to host the meeting in person at Webster Township Hall -- contingent on public health conditions. Sign-in begins at 7:00 pm. Voting can be done at the meeting or by absentee ballot. All ballots must be signed.  
All members should have received their LAIA Annual Meeting packet in the mail. The meeting packet includes your Ballot with Proxy option, as well as the agenda, summary budget, candidates for Board of Directors, year-end reports from LAIA committees, and more. This year, the proposed annual assessment is $775.00, the same as it has been for the last five years. There are three openings for directors. Please read the meeting materials before casting your votes for the assessment and Board candidates. (Casting your vote puts you in the pool for one of two 50% waivers off the annual assessment!) Also, the committee reports will provide good information on all the important work done for your neighborhood by resident volunteers.
Early voting is welcome!  For your convenience, ballots may be mailed to Select Community Management; or scanned and emailed to SCM at; or sent by fax to (734) 663-0809, or dropped off at one of three Loch Alpine addresses listed on the ballot. Absentee ballots must be received by March 21.  If you have not received your Annual Meeting packet, contact SCM at (734) 663-1900.  A copy of the meeting packet and ballot are posted in the password protected part of the DOCUMENTS section on this website.
Thank You, Storm Champions!
The recent ice and snow storms left all of us in the dark for days. Yet, we are thankful to two of our long-time, extraordinary partners for keeping our streets clear and safe during and after the dangerous weather. Steve DeWolfe and the Excavators II crew were out during the storms, at all hours of the night, salting and plowing our roads. In the morning, they cleared branches obstructing the roads and set up barriers on West Loch Alpine to warn traffic and pedestrians away from downed power lines at the park. Immediately following the storms, Jamie Cobb and the LnJ Landscape Lawncare crews have been removing tree limbs and branches along our roads and community grounds. Loch Alpine is fortunate to have such dedicated contractors throughout the year and especially to manage the messes that bad weather leaves behind.
