To The Homeowners & Residents of Nantucket Subdivision:
Thanks to those who found time to attend last Thursday's meeting to elect a new trustee and further the discussion on the updated indentures.
A special thank you to Denise and Juliet for volunteering to fill the open trustee position.
Good luck Julie going forward- as an Emeritus Trustee- I am available at any time to help the Board.
It has been my great pleasure to serve as a trustee in the Nantucket Subdivision.
What started out as a coerced approval to help out an old friend has turned into a fantastic learning experience for me.
I recommend every resident give it a try.
While I acknowledge that at times residents were as upset with me as I was with them, I tried to see all points of view.
However, my purpose as a Trustee was one sided- the well-being of Nantucket Subdivision for all homeowners and residents.
As I depart as your Trustee, Nantucket is at a crossroads in our 25 year history.
We can either choose to maintain the status quo of the past 25 years and hope for the best.
Our we can follow the first quote of "The Three Happens"-
Make Things Happen-
Watch Things Happen-
Look around and say--- "Wow! What Just Happened?"
Or we can set by and watch and then be upset when ---- it happens.
Perhaps an alternative- we can each offer a part of ourselves- no matter how small or large- to help move the community forward.
Learn more about the need for updated Indentures, neighborhood committees, be involved, help your neighbors maintain their property values where possible, etc.
Make Things Happen.
The ill-advised use of social media, clandestine meetings, and fact-less rumors serves only those with a personal agenda and is not conducive to the community.
If you have a question- don't depend on the Fact-Less "Experts"- contact DNI Properties or the Trustees.
Ask yourself one question- Why did I move here?
Was it was to live the "Status Quo"?
Or was it to live in a community that continues to be one of the most desirable and affordable in West St. Louis County?
Volunteer. Volunteer. Volunteer.
There. I said it three times. It is now in your memory.
Please act on it in a manner that sets a positive example of you as a valued resident of Nantucket.
Help your elected Trustees to ensure the neighborhood continues to be a desirable location.
Please make sure our property management company has your preferred method of contact.
Some prefer email, some snail mail, some by phone- help them to help you.
I openly welcome any fact-based feedback.
