In the best interest of maintaining a smooth and orderly flow to the meeting, and with respect to, and in consideration of, the time of everyone involved, we will strictly adhere to the enclosed agenda. As everyone knows, space and seating are limited in the clubhouse. To ensure we are able to accommodate as many members as possible, it is requested that members limit attendance at the meeting to no more than one person from each member lot.

Please review the budget you were sent that has been proposed for 2017. We will be voting on the budget as well as the two board seats that will come open for election to a two year term. If any member has an interest in seeking one of the open board positions, please contact any current board member prior to December 3, 2016 so your name can be included on the ballot. As always, nominations from the floor can be made at the annual meeting.

Please understand, if we do not have a quorum, as constituted by 50% +1 paid members either in attendance or by proxy, the meeting cannot proceed with voting on any issue. If necessary a second meeting will be scheduled, and the current board will continue to conduct business until a quorum is reached at a future scheduled annual meeting.

Annual Membership Meeting - No Quorum
Meeting to be Rescheduled

We did not have enough eligible lot owners and/or proxies present at last night's annual meeting, therefore no business was conducted. We needed 51% of eligible lot owners. We did hold a question and answer session. Per the bylaws, the existing board will stay in tact and function as normal.

We will get back to you soon with a new meeting date - tentatively to be scheduled in January 2016.

Thank you to those who were able to attend or send in your proxies!

The street lights operated by Greystone Electric, are under Douglas County control and are paid as part of everyone's property taxes each year.

Riverwalk Activities Instruction Policy Update

After receiving a printout of our actual HOA insurance policy and further discussion with the insurance underwriter, the Riverwalk Homeowners Association, Inc. Board of Directors issues the following revised policy:

Any member in good standing may give swim, tennis, aerobics or other instruction with the following conditions:

1. A Certificate of Liability Insurance listing:

  • Name of person insured.
  • Effective dates of the policy.
  • Limits of the policy.
  • Minimum coverage of $1,000,000
  • Certificate must list the Riverwalk Homeowners Association, Inc. as an Additional Insured.
  • Certificate must be presented to the Board directly from the issuing insurance office, by one of the following means: USPS to Riverwalk Homeowners Association, Inc, P.O. Box 6122, Douglasville, GA 30154 or e-mailed to dionrking@gmail.com

No instruction may begin until the above has been received by the Board and acknowledgment sent to the applicant.

2. Lessons and group activities may be conducted between 10:00am and 2:30pm Monday through Thursday only as to not inconvenience other members during normally busier times.

Non-members may NOT receive instruction or participate in any of these activities on HOA property. Nonmembers may be guests of a member for recreational purposes only, not to receive instruction.

Our insurance policy EXCLUDES medical payments for anyone injured while participation in “athletic activities.”

The Board apologizes for the confusion and delays. We received a copy of the insurance booklet only this week and a discussion with the Supervising Underwriter cleared up the conflicting information that was received by the Board previously. We will be happy to e-mail a copy of the Insurance Policy to any member who requests one.
