Tripp’s Tidbits January 8, 2020
Happy 2020 Jones Creek. Here is a toast to working together for a great and prosperous year in our community.
I spoke with 3 separate realtors recently and asked for their thoughts on real estate in Jones Creek. Here are their comments:
· Top reasons people are considering/buying in Jones Creek
o Columbia County
Home sales are doing ok. The average price per square foot is steady.
We have received two proposals from companies related to the golf course property. They are proposals, not offers to purchase. The details will be presented at the Annual Meeting on February 3rd. A summary of these proposals will also be released via this same document prior to Feb. 3rd for your review. Currently, we are trying to get answers to some of the expected questions.
Our poll results are as follows:
1 Do nothing 25%
2 HOA purchase land 7%
3 HOA purchase for non-golf 13%
4 HOA purchase for golf 1%
5 Partnership for golf 37%
6 Other 15%
We had over 320 ballots returned. There were also many “information sheets” completed and those are currently being added into our database. Thank you for your help.
In addition, there were many comments and ideas related to the above options. Many of you spent time researching options and alternatives, thank you for your feedback.
The Board recently voted by identical 13-1 margins to one, update our By-Laws and reduce the number of Board positions to 9. Additional spots can be added if deemed necessary. And two, to increase our annual dues by $100. If dues are paid by February 28th, the amount due is $525.
The Board also capped the credit Board members receive at $425. The new structure will provide over $4,000 of new revenue from the Board members.
Our Jones Creek Board candidate “meet and greet” will be on Tuesday, January 21st from 6 – 7:30 pm at the Jones Creek Clubhouse. Please stop by to meet the candidates for the open Board positions.
The 2020 Annual Meeting for the Jones Creek Owners Association will be held on Monday, February 3rd at 6:30 pm in the Hardin Auditorium at the Evans Library. Hardin Auditorium is located at 7022 Evans Town Center Blvd., in Evans.
