No Old Busine ss
New Business -- Proposed Rule Change regarding NUISANCES. Suggestions for resolving situations occurring in one association that is viewed as a nuisance in another association were discussed. Mr. Stanley Lampert, an owner in the Landings, provided a sample of his own version of proposed language for the rule. The consensus of the LMA Board is that association members should first go to their own Board. That Board would approach the neighboring Board to assist in resolving the nuisance between associations.
Adjournment -- The next meeting is scheduled for August 2, 2002
