As of end of year projected to have approximately $125,000-$130,000 going into 2019. This fund will pay for all major repair expenses which come due--scheduled fence repairs, Tuck Pointing, and street sign repairs for 2019
--projects to be paid by reserve fund and quotes will be posted on website
--if a reserve study performed, will state reserve fund should be approximately 50% of what is collected and a reserve fund in place. Sagamore did have a reserve study in the past.
--homeowner presented option of lowering the HOA fee due to reserve fund present. The Board strongly discourages this due to future maintenance issues and projects which will arise. The current HOA fee will maintain the fund and allow for the necessary capital for future maintenance/repair issues.

--currently no sidewalk is required on a lot until a structure is built.
--HOA will discuss the need for a sidewalk on a lot purchased to an adjoining house/property in which the undeveloped lot will remain without a structure—does make sense to have a sidewalk so no “gap”
--If an empty lot is adjoined by neighboring homeowner, Sagamore HOA does realize a decrease in HOA revenue from the empty lot adjoined by a homeowner, as homeowner will pay only one set of HOA dues
--No time requirement is in place to build on a purchased lot.
