Proposed DCC&R Amendment (12/28/2013)
The Board of Directors approved the following proposed changes to the current Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (DCC&Rs).  Because it is a change to the DCC&R, it requires 75% approval of the 505 unit owners to be adopted.
 
The Board of Directors is asking for your support for this change by studying the resolution (a full copy can be seen here) and considering signing the enclosed signature form and returning it to the On-site Office (1211 Catalina Drive, Hanover Park, IL 60133).  Only original signatures can be accepted (e.g., no faxes, e-mails, scanned versions, etc.) and only a homeowner of record can complete the signature form.

This change to the DCC&R is an important part of the program to move the Association forward and in the opinion of the Board of Directors provides certain legal framework to permit the Association the ability to supplement the Crime Free Leasing Program, which the Village has stated the goals are to (1) reduce crime; (2) improve the quality of life for Village residents; and (3) enhance the value of owners’ real property.
 
In summary, this resolution will:
  1. Restrict registered sex offenders and certain felons from living in the Tanglewood Community
  2. Allow the Association to collect information from owners and occupants, including but not limited to names of all occupants of a unit, a history of any felony convictions for those occupants, vehicle information, etc. Please review the full proposed change for additional details (full version can be seen here)
if you have any questions, you can contact the on-site property manage, Betty Rauch, at onsitemanagement@greenbrooktanglewood-hoa.com or you can contact the board at board@greenbrooktanglewood-hoa.com.
 
Leasing Resolution and Crime Free Addendum (07/22/2014)
On 12-17-2013, the Board of Directors approved a Resolution outlining new Rules and Regulations related to violations in general and specifically related to leasing of units.  The Resolution sets forth revised, new Rules and  Regulations regarding the violation process, including notice, hearing, enforcement, fines, and final determination.  All unit owners, including landlords, should carefully review these new Rules and Regulations to be certain that they are and continue to be in compliance with them. (click here for the full resolution).

As a part of this Resolution, landlords are required to utilize, as a part of their rental leases, the referenced Village of Hanover Park Crime Free Lease Addendum (click here) as a part of the Association’s safety enhancement program.  This addendum is now required for all leased units in the community.  The Board-approved Association’s Rider to Lease 3.0 (click here) is also now required as a part of the rental lease. The deadline for receipt by Property Management of the completed, signed Rider to Lease 3.0 was March 1, 2014.   Thereafter, affected unit owners will be subject to the Association’s violation, enforcement and fine process, as outlined under the newly adopted related Rules and Regulations.

Send completed, signed Association Riders to Lease 3.0 by mail, fax, or email to Property Management to any of the following addresses/fax:  Greenbrook Tanglewood Homeowners Association, Inc., 1211 Catalina Drive, Hanover Park, Illinois 60133;  or Fax:  (630) 289-0245; or email to
 
2013 Multi-year Roof Replacement Plan (09/08/2013)
Based on an engineering study of all the roofs within the Association by Property Technics (Click here for survey information), the Board of Directors has developed a multi-year roof maintenance and replacement program.  The program will begin with preventative maintenance of the dwelling roofs and an initial number of flat garage roof replacements to be completed in the Fall of 2013 (with work continuing in Spring of 2014, if needed).  The board has authorized spending $49,800 on the dwelling preventive maintenance and an initial $115,000 on phase one of the garage roof replacements.  At the September 17, 2013 Board Meeting, the board will consider spending an additional $135,000 for garage roof replacements as part of this first phase.
 
The total estimated cost for the phases I-IV flat garage roof replacement is $865,570.  The proposal is to spread this cost in the approximate amounts of $250,000 each in 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, and then taper down to $38,800 for 2023-2024, $35,300 for 2028-2029, and $65,950 for 2031-2032, based on 2013 competitive, sealed bid prices. To see a tentative list of when each garage roof is targeted for replacement, click here. NOTE: This list should be treated as a proposed plan that is subject to change.  A change in the order of replacement could be driven by evolving roof conditions, available funds, etc.
 
The Board also approved a unit dwelling multi-year roof replacement plan. The good news is based on the architect’s comprehensive report, the unit dwelling roofs are in relatively good condition. The annual execution of the roof preventive maintenance program should extend the useful life of unit dwelling roofs and should result in fewer roof leaks. The proposed multi-year unit dwelling roof replacement plan provides the following estimated expenditures, based on 2013 current prices:
  • 2018 $ 74,000
  • 2019 $ 94,500
  • 2020 $124,000
  • 2021 $241,000
  • 2022 $244,000
  • 2023 $248,500
  • 2024 $239,000
  • 2025 $252,000
  • 2026 $219,500
  • 2027 $237,999
  • 2028 $239,000
  • 2029 $232,000
  • 2030 $268,000
  • 2031 $234,000
  • 2032 $ 82,500
The total estimated cost for dwelling roof replacement is $2,946,500. To see a tentative list of when each dwelling roof is targeted for replacement, click here. NOTE: This list should be treated as a proposed plan that is subject to change.  A change in the order of replacement could be driven by evolving roof conditions, available funds, etc.
 
2013 Roof Study (08/24/2013)
In May 2013, the Board of Directors of Greenbrook Tanglewood Homeowners Association had a roof inspection and study completed by Property Technics.  This involved a survey of all townhome and garage roofs that were not recently replaced.  The report provides a summary of the roof conditions, estimated replacement cost and recommended actions.  To see the full reports, click here.

Village of Hanover Park Crime Free Lease Addendum and Related Village Ordinance Information (06/30/2013)
At the May 21, 2013 Board meeting, Chief of Police David Webb of the Village of Hanover Park gave a presentation to update unit owners, residents and Board members about criminal activity in Greenbrook Tanglewood and to discuss how the Village and Association can further improve the safety of Greenbrook Tanglewood residents.  He also updated all in attendance of the Association/Village cooperation regarding safety of GTHOA, Inc. and the on-going policing efforts of the Village. One of the topics that he overviewed was the recent Village revision of residential rental and leasing requirements.
