The Association is favorable for the month by $5,000

but will probably run about $100,000 over budget on
long term. Part of that is related to the roofing project.
The roofing project budget could run over as much as
$50,000.

Co-Owner Forum
1.) Kristine Camano:
Co-owner Kristine Camano made an appeal to the
Board to consider allowing Kristine and her husband to
rent out their condo. They do not want to sell it because
they plan on living at Highland Lakes when they retire.
Only 13% of Highland Lakes condos can be rented. It is
currently around 14.8%. Tom Byrne said that when the
bylaws were changed the 13% rule was put into effect
because of the financing regulations by the federal
government. If there is too large a percentage of renters,
people wont be able to qualify for the lower interest
loans that the government provides. A percentage cap
was established to make sure that the Association stays
under that limit to protect the investment of all the coowners so they would have an equal opportunity to
sell. It is to protect the financial investment of the other
co-owners and make sure they dont have a difficult
time selling their units and getting fair market value for
them. Mrs. Camano is not the first co-owner affected
because the Board has had to enforce this rule.
There is already a list of co-owners waiting for rentals
to drop below 13%.
Kathy Baldwin asked if any Board member wanted

SUBJECTS DISCUSSED:

1. Opened meeting asking for better acceptance of differences of opinion. We cant always expect 100 percent agreement.
2. Landscaping area on south side of the club house back towards the pool patio. Four mostly dead shrubs and some old

evergreens showing their age. Committee to submit a work order to have the dead bushes removed. No agreement on
removing old evergreens. Will clean up area and apply mulch. Discussion regarding a re-planting plan to be continued
at next meeting. Suggestions included adding additional decorative grasses, weigela, and/or hydrangeas.

3. Discussed Ortho product Grass-B-Gone, a garden grass killer. Will eliminate grass trying to grow into garden areas
without affecting your garden plants.

4. A seawall addition has been installed on Silver Spring Lake along the edge of the Serenity garden area. Wall placed one
foot in from water line to avoid state regulations if placed directly in the water and the amount of time before an approval could be gotten.

5. Discussed looking into possible trimming back of tree along 8 Mile right-of-way west of Highland Lakes entrance to
expose plantings under tree to more sunlight.

6. New decorative grasses has been planted replacing the original grasses that did not go through the winter weather well
in the 8 Mile entrance landscaping.

7. Add to tree trimming budget the dead tree in Queen Anne Court on front side of units.
8. Investigate view obstruction behind Bryn Mawr Court off lake.
9. A commitment made to restrict the Serenity Garden to the bounds it now occupies. No further incursion into the adjacent woodlands.

Guest Comments:
Co-owner Sue Misulis came to the Engineering Committee meeting and requested that research be done regarding the
use of solar shingles as a possibility in the future to reduce energy costs. She also noted that electric vehicles are becoming
more prevalent and she thinks the Association should look into the installation of vehicle charging stations at the front of
select parking spaces or let co-owners pay to have them installed at the front of deeded spaces. She stated that her concern
was over the use of extension cords as the vehicles grow in number. The Engineering Committee questioned whether that
meeting was the appropriate forum and refered her to the Board of Directors for comments. The Property Manager said
that he would place her comments in the Engineering Committee minutes.

RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD: Approval of requests #1 - #6.

SUBJECTS DISCUSSED:
1. We have been without a security guard for several weeks. A replacement or other options are under consideration.
Everyone is advised to call the police or 911 if witnessing any suspicious activity.
2. Previous recommendations were reviewed:

1. Pet pail stands: No progress though it is generally agreed that a raised area keeps the container in place.
2. Painting of parking lot lines and numbers: Management is investigating the best option for proceeding.
3. Depth markers in the lakes: This has been assigned to the Lakes Ecology Committee.
3. Barb Balock reported that the Club House Committee is planning a get-together for new residents for September 30th.
Future social events will be planned depending on the success of this one. The need to acquaint new neighbors with
rules and regulations was discussed. Stan suggested that a video could be made that could be shown at these social
events. He will investigate the possibility of this and contact Barb Balock.
4. Other issues discussed were the problem of an oversized truck consistently parked blocking sidewalk access and the
question of fire pits. It was advised that Joe be consulted regarding the blocked sidewalk. Reference to the August Herald
made clear that fire pits are not allowed in Highland Lakes.
5. Plans for the Court Liaison Appreciation Hot Dog Roast included:

Time/Place: 6 p.m. on the pool patio.

Invitees:
Current liaisons and those who have just recently been replaced.

MANAGEMENT REPORT
TO: Board of Directors, Co-Owners
FROM: Joe Poma, Property Manager

RE: Property Managers Report


DATE: August 17, 2015

1. Seawall / Beach Project: There are some exciting new projects taking place in your community. As previously stated,

an anonymous donor contributed the funds to extend the Serenity Garden Seawall in the northeast corner of Silver
Spring Lake. This area of our property has been difficult to maintain because the wind carries all of the debris across
the lake and it collects in this corner. By springtime, we have to hire outside help to clean it out, sometimes requiring
people to wade into the water to reach the leaves, branches and everything else that drifts over there. Due to the generosity of one of our residents, those workers can now stand on the shoreline which will save us money, and I continue
to get comments from residents as to how great it looks. The Swan Harbor beach project, which should be finished by
the time you read this, is a large scale excavation and restoration project. It involves the excavation and re-grading of
the beach area to bring it from a 35 degree slant down to a 10 degree slant (numbers approximate) to prevent sand from
eroding into the lake and making the beach useless. Year after year, we have been approached by residents that noticed
how the rainwater carried the sand away and left gravel and rivulets down to the shoreline. This construction project
also involves the placement of huge natural-looking stones weighing 2 tons each to form a barrier wall on the back and
sides of the beach, with a stone staircase leading downward, and also the placement of fresh sand in the beach and in
the water. It will be the nicest beach on our property and the residents in that area have waited patiently for a long time.
As a testament to our contract negotiations and desire to bring you the best possible pricing, we actually had a few
residents express concern that this project was in excess of $100,000 and they were worried we were adding this to our
assessment increases. It certainly looks that way, but I am happy to report that just about all of the money came out of
long term, and the cost was closer to $26,300.

2. Recycling: As previously stated, the residents have spoken on the recycling issue. They want it. I am in negotiations
with Waste Management to provide the appropriate size container for the clubhouse parking lot; location yet to be
determined, but in the meantime, this is has been placed in my budget proposal. We think we can get the paper, cardboard and plastic recycled here, but the glass is a different story. I will be looking into that one.
3. Asphalt & Concrete: The roofing project has placed a strain on our asphalt & concrete repair programs, and we are
attending to those projects that are necessities or could pose safety risks to our residents until the roofing is completed
late next year. Following the roofing project, there is a very large sum in the long term account that will permit us to
catch up on everything that has been suspended during the last few years. The project that is being contemplated is
large enough to require the services of an outside consultant as we did with the roofs, to determine those that are priority replacements. Although its still a bit early, you may notice contractors taking core samples next year of sidewalks
and parking lots to determine depth, composition and quality or otherwise to figure out the useful life remaining in
that location. The final report will make the difference between a patch repair, a milling and recapping of 2 inches of
asphalt, or a complete tear-out and replacement. Some of our courtyards have asphalt that has been recapped multiple
times, often evidenced by the asphalt coming up to the top of the curb rather than seeing a 6 inch curb next to it. In areas like this, it would seemingly make no sense to grind away the first two inches and re-cap it, because within a year or
two, the pliable layers underneath will crack and separate and the whole parking lot will get the faded alligatoring that
is common on older roads. Details will follow in the coming year. With regard to this year however, we saw some critical areas around the property, including the Irongate Court curbs, the Windsor Court curbs and sidewalks, the Lagoon
Court curbs, sidewalks & asphalt, and finally, the Pond Court asphalt near the trash corral and extending most of the
way to the entrance of the court. Those issues formed our concrete and asphalt project for 2015 and are being completed now. Maintenance continues to apply patch repair to potholes and concrete patch to expansion joints in sidewalks
throughout the property that have crumbled due to the weather and our specific geography.

MANAGEMENT REPORT
TO: Board of Directors, Co-Owners
FROM: Joe Poma, Property Manager

RE: Property Managers Report


DATE: August 17, 2015

4. Parking Lot Numbering: Our parking space numbers will involve a two-part project. It is my intent to have maintenance

paint these numbers on the spaces as they did in the past, and possibly have an outside contractor spray the lines. As of
the time that I am writing this, the line portion of the project is still a budget proposal, but I have spoken with maintenance
and will be starting the other half soon.

5. Roofing: By the middle of August, we have 9 buildings out of 16 completed for Phase 5 of our roofing program. This

means that we have a total of 25 buildings on the property to re-roof. We are now 75% complete with our roofing program.
We have encountered some glitches along the way, so if youre seeing the occasional chimney cap laying on its side on the
roof, or an exposed eave or frieze, thats because we saw something behind the wall or had to tie something in before
we closed it up. We are also encountering overruns with plywood roof decking. These roofs were shingled twice and the
decking has weathered over 40 years. With some of the original roofs, you can look up and see where they are bowing in
between the rafters and it actually feels spongy to walk on. Our contract calls for replacement of the first run of plywood
along the bottom of the roof and at the top, but some buildings (especially the end unit ranches) have required complete
deck replacements or over 100 sheets of plywood on the building. Since these are rated for 50 years, we want to do it once
and do it right. If any resident notices variations in their gutter extensions, especially in the patio, where they used to
extend further out the back, feel free to call me and I will correct that. Some condominiums sit at lower elevations or their
patios are soup bowls, so the gutters carried the water further away than their neighbors. The roofers are aware of this,
but you can help to report any errors that you see.

6. New phone system: The Association has a new phone system at the clubhouse and maintenance shop which is an internet

/ digital based system and with all new technology, its more complicated and can be annoying. At least when youre placed
on hold, you will hear some nice elevator music, but be patient as we learn the system and there may be some periodic
dropped calls during transfers. One of the notable changes is the removal of the emergency maintenance number. The
new system, when the clubhouse is called after hours, requires you to simply press 0 if its an emergency and you will be
routed directly to the answering service. We also have individual voicemails at the office, as does the main 4006 number,
which means you can leave a message at the desk of the staff member of your choice during normal business hours if they
are not there.

7. Pool / lifeguards: As we close out this pool season, I am happy to report that our summer was problem-free with equip-

ment, staffing and incidents. It shows the quality of the lifeguard staff this year. The pool was not only well-attended, but
so were the events sponsored by our committees. Even the Wayne County inspectors that check the pool enclosure on a
yearly basis commented how well-maintained it was and we continue to get high grades there.

8. Northville Vehicle Break-Ins: For the second or third time this year, Northville Township has had a wave of vehicle

break-ins and thefts, most often occurring in one night and involving a reported 17-20 cars around the township and city.
Highland Lakes usually gets 2-3 vehicles damaged during these crime sprees, and the thieves seem to be targeting the center console GPS / Radio assembly (especially on Chrysler models), and also the tires and rims on the Ford Edge / Lincoln
MKX platform. They may be shifting their focus with each wave, so all residents should take extra precautions. In almost
every case, if the window is broken out or they get access by other means, they go through the glove-box as well, possibly in
an attempt to get a wheel lock or some other valuable item left in the car. If you see suspicious activity, please call the police
immediately as these occurrences are taking place in the very early morning hours. Do not approach anyone that you
suspect is involved in this, as their lack of concern over doing this in the middle of a courtyard, may also mean that they
are very dangerous. Contact your local dealership or auto parts store and inquire as to any safety devices that may exist to
make your specific vehicle an undesirable target.

9. Website: For those of you that are unaware, or for new residents, dont forget to check our website at www.hlca.us which

contains a copy of the Bylaws, Master Deed, Co-Owners Manual, Engineering Forms and almost all of the other information and forms that you get directly from the front desk. New residents should complete their census forms promptly.

Seasonal September Recipes

Sauteed Apples (serves four)


1/4 cup butter
4 large tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/2 cup cold water


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add apples. Cook, stirring constantly, until
apples are almost tender, about 6 to 7 minutes.
Dissolve cornstarch in water; add to skillet. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Remove from heat and serve warm.

Peanut Butter Cup Smoreo Bars


For the oreo base:
24 oreos, crushed
2 tbsp butter / coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp milk

For the topping:


1/2 cup (8 tbsp) peanut butter, warmed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
24 large marshmallows, halved (or 2 cups mini marshmallows)
6 peanut butter cups, chopped

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 8 square pan with foil or baking paper. Spray with oil. Set
aside.
2. To make the base: Combine the crushed oreos with the melted butter and milk. Scatter the mixture
evenly into the lined pan and press down. Bake for 6 minutes.
3. Once baked, immediately spread the warmed peanut butter over the oreo base. Evenly scatter the chocolate chips over the peanut butter. Completely cover with the halved marshmallows (or mini marshmallows), placing them cut side down.
4. Place under a broiler for under 1 minute to toast the marshmallows (watch them closely!) - mine took
around 30 seconds.
5. Immediately scatter the chopped peanut butter cups over the marshmallow layer.
6. Cut into 12 or 16 bars. Serve warm
Correction: In the August issue, recipes for Smoked Salmon and
Catalina Sald were submitted by Joy Gaskin of Lagoon Ct.

Leidel Court 18th


Annual Backyard
Party
Leidel Court held their 18th annual backyard party on the shores
of Swan Harbor Lake on Saturday evening, July 25. The weather was perfect and all partygoers
had a great time, wonderful food,
desserts and enjoyed visiting with
their friends and neighbors.
As you can see from the pictures
the party again was a success. This
was due to the efforts of Barbara
Adams and Gary Eli, who copied
and distributed the invitations.
Art Baynes created the invitations
and made magic with his camera
again so we could view the party
in the Herald.
But what really made the party a
success was the co-owners, family
and friends that attended the get
together, bringing their favorite
dishes, desserts and hors doeuvres.
Arts wife, Barbara, was under the
weather and could not attend the
party. However, she still managed
to put together some pretty tasty
snacks. Art did make sure that she
had her share of the goodies and
everyone wishes her well.

Why Native Plants Matter

Restoring native plant habitat is vital to preserving biodiversity. By creating a native plant garden,
each patch of habitat becomes part of a collective effort to nurture and sustain the living landscape
for birds and other animals.
Over the past century, urbanization has taken intact, ecologically productive land and fragmented and transformed it with
lawns and exotic ornamental plants. The continental U.S. lost a staggering 150 million acres of habitat and farmland to
urban sprawl, and that trend isnt slowing. The modern obsession with highly manicured perfect lawns alone has created
a green, monoculture carpet across the country that covers over 40 million acres. The human-dominated landscape no
longer supports functioning ecosystems, and the remaining isolated natural areas are not large enough to support wildlife.
Native plants are those that occur naturally in a region in which they evolved. They are the ecological basis upon which life
depends, including birds and people. Without them and the insects that co-evolved with them, local birds cannot survive.
For example, research by the entomologist Doug Tallamy has shown that native oak trees support over 500 species of caterpillars whereas ginkgos, a commonly planted landscape tree from Asia, host only 5 species of caterpillars.
Unfortunately, most of the landscaping plants available in nurseries are
alien species from other countries. These exotic plants not only sever the
food web, but many have become invasive pests, outcompeting native species and degrading habitat in remaining natural areas.
Landscaping choices have meaningful effects on the populations of birds
and the insects they need to survive. The bottom line is this--homeowners,
landscapers, and local policy makers can benefit birds and other wildlife
by simply selecting native plants when making their landscaping decisions.

Benefits of Native Plants:


Low maintenance:
Once established, native plants generally require little maintenance.
Beauty:
Many native plants offer beautiful showy flowers, produce abundant colorful fruits and seeds, and brilliant seasonal
changes in colors from the pale, thin greens of early spring, to the vibrant yellows and reds of autumn.
Healthy Places for People:
Lawns and the ubiquitous bark-mulched landscapes are notorious for requiring profuse amounts of artificial fertilizers and synthetic chemical pesticides and herbicides. The traditional suburban lawn, on average, has 10x more
chemical pesticides per acre than farmland. By choosing native plants for your landscaping, you are not only helping
wildlife, but you are creating a healthier place for yourself, your family, and your community.
Helping the Climate:
Landscaping with native plants can combat climate change. Many native plants, especially long-living trees like oaks
and maples, are effective at storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
Conserving Water:
Because native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions, they require far less water, saving time, money,
and perhaps the most valuable natural resource, water.

The Swan family

Wildlife
In addition to providing vital habitat for birds, many other species of wildlife benefits as well. The colorful array of butterflies and moths, including
the iconic monarch, the swallowtails, tortoiseshells, and beautiful blues,
are all dependent on very specific native plant species. Native plants provide nectar for pollinators including hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies, moths, and bats. They provide protective shelter for many mammals.
The native nuts, seeds, and fruits produced by these plants offer essential
foods for all forms of wildlife.

CONTACT NUMBER(S)
GENERAL LOCATION OF SHRUB TO BE REMOVED

The Association will bear the cost for the removal of the shrub(s) and recommends
that the co-owner purchase and plant a replacement shrub or some other attractive
landscaping. According to the Co-Owners Manual, SHRUB REPLACEMENT policy,
Co-owners are reimbursed $10 per shrub, up to two shrubs per year, for replacement
of dead or diseased shrubs. Please refer to Co-Owners Manual for complete details.

PLEASE SEE OTHER SIDE


25

SHRUB REMOVALINFORMATION
Because Highland Lakes is over 40 years old, many of our
shrubs and bushes are overgrown or are in poor condition.
It has customarily been the practice that, unless the shrub
or bush is dead, the Grounds Committee will not approve
its removal. This policy has been modified somewhat, to
allow for the removal of overgrown shrubs and bushes
or those that are in poor condition. There are conditions
to be met however; these conditions are outlined on the
Shrub Removal Request Form on the other side of this
page.
Requests must be submitted
to the Grounds
Committee NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 5, 2015 so that
the Committee has ample time to review the request. The
Committee has a mail box in the Clubhouse office. Be
sure the form is completely filled out.
The Association will bear the cost for the removal of the
shrub(s) and recommends that the co-owner purchase
and plant a replacement shrub or some other attractive
landscaping. The Association will reimburse you up to
$10 toward a new shrub.
If such removal will necessitate a landscape plan, you
must submit that plan, along with a Grounds Request,
indicating what you are putting in as a replacement and a
representative of the Grounds Committee will inspect the
planting. Please be aware that this program will only take
place during one week in October or November, weather
permitting.
Please Note: Patio shrubs and bushes are not covered for removal,
they are the Co-Owners responsibility. This program only covers the
bushes on common grounds.

Township hosts water


rate meeting

FLU / PNEUMONIA

VACCINE CLINIC

Northville Township residents have been


wondering what happened to raise their
water rates so high.

Saturday,
September 12, 2015

On Monday, Sept. 14, Northville township officials are hosting a town hall-style
meeting to try and explain what happened
to raise residents water rates.

1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The Visiting Nurse Association will


administer the flu/pneumonia vaccine
in the Clubhouse Highland Room.

Despite a significant drop in consumption,


water rates in the township skyrocketed
this year largely because of a new formula
and a decision to increase the amount of
fixed costs the Detroit Water and Sewerage
Department decided to pass on to its
suburban customers.

Costs are as follows:

* Flue shots: $25


*Pneumonia vaccine: $110
