Project 66 Food Pantry

Hi Neighbors! It’s that time of year again when Project 66 Food Pantry prepares over 400Thanksgiving food baskets to be distributed to families in need right here in our community. For the last four years Bella Terra has helped meet those needs by donating some of the items needed. As a neighborhood we have made a big difference and we have the opportunity to do it again this year!

Below is a list of the items needed for this year’s food drive.

Canned Fruit
Canned Sweet Potatoes
Boxed Stuffing
5 lb. bag potatoes
Canned gravy
Canned cranberry sauce
To busy to get to the store, they have a new option this year. By donating $16.10, you can provide a turkey for a family in need. Just visit: hhbc.com/project-66

Wouldn’t it be great if all the baskets were filled from the generosity of our neighborhood!!! If you’re inclined to donate, we are doing things a little different this year. You can either bring items down to the Fall Festival on Saturday, November 5th and place on the designated table or place your items on your front porch and they will be picked up from your door-step on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6th between 2pm-3pm and directly donated to Project 66 on the behalf of Bella Terra. Please e-mail me if you need a receipt for your donation and Project 66 will be happy to supply you one.

On the behalf of Project 66, thank you for your help!

Sincerely,
Melissa Griffin

HOA Annual Meeting on October 25th

The Bella Terra HOA Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 25th at the neighborhood pool house. The meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 pm and will end at 8:30 pm. The Board will present a recap of the year and discuss new business. Also, we will hold elections for the 5-member Board of Directors. If you wish to be considered for the Board, you must be present at the meeting. Nominations for the Board can be made at the meeting or on any of the Bella Terra social media sites (Facebook or NextDoor).

Furthermore, we will vote on two (2) amendments to the HOA Covenants and Restrictions, as follows:

1. Amend the CCR’s to change the Board of Directors term from one (1) year to a two (2) year term.
2. Amend the CCR’s to eliminate the Developer appointed board member.

As mentioned above, you can nominate yourself or others using this post, NextDoor and/or attending the meeting. A proxy will be sent via mail in case you are unable to attend the meeting.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask any one of the current Board members.

Road Work Update

As you may have noticed, they have begun milling the edges of Meritage and Sedonia Circle today. Armor expects that starting Wednesday they will begin with the repair/replacement of a large section along Rivanna. Addresses 2494, 2524, 2554 and 2527 Rivanna Way will be without access to their driveways for 2-3 days. I realize this is short notice, but the plan is fluid based on weather and other contractors availability.

Also, beginning Wednesday at 9 am the homes on Sedonia will not have ingress or egress to their driveways as they begin the overlay process. They expect you to be able to access your drives after 5 pm on Wednesday.

I will post a map with the planned phases later tonight or in the morning when Armor gets it to me.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience. If you have questions please direct them to me. Armor has requested to have a single contact point with the HOA.

The overall timeframe is 4-6 weeks total.

Thank you all.

 

UPDATE 4:30 5/17

Due to the weather and some other issues outside of our control, Armor is not going to start the replace/repair or the overlay on either Rivanna or Sedonia tomorrow as planned. It now looks like they will begin that project the first of next week. So, you will all have full access to your driveways tomorrow.

HOA Meeting on Sunday April 24th

A meeting of all homeowners to discuss the road repair bids, the voting process, and answer questions will be held on Sunday, April 24th, 2016 from 3-5PM at the Bella Terra clubhouse.
