A LETTER FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT
I am gratified to have been given the opportunity to lead our HOA board for this coming year. Deer Mountain is sound and strong. We have financial resources, a friendly and cohesive community, and we live in a place that continues to take my breath away. Last summer, I saw someone wearing a t-shirt that said, “I live in your vacation” and we do. We are blessed in many ways. In the area of governance, our goal is to expand participation in the management of our community. Last year under Jill’s leadership, the Board expanded a sub-committee structure with the goal of tapping into the vibrancy, energy, and talent that we are blessed with in our Deer Mountain community. This year, we will try to bring that new structure to fruition, and we are grateful to those community members who have volunteered to serve on the Board’s committees. We will also explore whether we can improve our resident portal and related technologies this year. As always, the first and best way to bring a matter to the Board’s attention is through the portal. I thank you in advance for the suggestions you will make, the wisdom you will offer, and the support you will extend to the Board this coming year.
Regards,
Joseph Wein
2022-23 Board President

A WORD FROM THE ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE
Just a reminder to all Deer Mountain residents who may be considering adding a hot tub this winter, doing landscaping or outside painting in the spring or any other kind of external improvements, (or even a new build!) to take a look at the New and Improved Architectural Guidelines adopted 11/10/22. Our Architectural Committee has been busy updating the Guidelines so take a peek and see what’s new and necessary for your home renovation plans by going into the Portal. Plan early and get a jump on all those projects you’ve been thinking about! Any questions, just ask the Portal and we’ll get back to you ASAP….

– Tammy Brown
(AC President)
