Call to Order at 11:05 am
Board President Michael Parrie called the meeting to order as scheduled at 11:05 am.
Statement of Purpose of Meeting
Board President Michael Parrie, acting as meeting chair, stated: “The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the proposed amendments to our declaration and bylaws. Before we open this up to owners’ questions, I would like to give a brief background. Park Tower’s declaration was created by the developer over 40 years ago, and with the exception of a few amendments, has never been voted on by all unit owners. Over the years, many owners have requested some changes to the declaration. Thus, about two years ago, the Board formed an Ad Hoc Commission to review in detail the declaration and bylaws. There were eight owners who were non-Board members serving on that commission for about six months: Ken Anderson, Sheldon Atovsky, Larry Hamilton (chair), Jeff Hauser, Ed Jaeger, Henry Long Ong, Bob Shamo, and Oliver Tugend. Jean Shamo served as the Board liaison. The commission prepared a report with recommendations on items to be considered by all unit owners. This report is available on the ptcondo.com website if anyone would like to review all the details. The Board agreed with all recommendations but slightly changed one, that is, putting pet dogs out to vote. The reason for the change is that the Board has heard numerous requests for allowing dogs, and thought it was fair to put that on the signature page with all the other items. As you are probably aware, the Board endorses allowing cats and detection animals, permitting the Board to establish leasing restrictions through rules, banning smoking on property including units, charging non-owners and non-residents of Park Tower more for health club memberships, and purchasing commercial unit 12C. The Board asks all owners to please vote.”
Open Floor for Unit Owner Questions and Feedback
Michael Parrie opened the floor for questions and discussion about the proposed amendments on the declaration and bylaws. Board members and Ad Hoc Commission members addressed questions and feedback.
There being no further questions, comments, or discussion, after a motion by Jean Shamo, Board Treasurer and unit owner 4606, seconded by Monique Fouant, Board Vice-President and unit owner 4701, the meeting was adjourned at 12:23 pm, with all in favor of adjournment.
