February 2023 Oracle

It is hard to believe that in a few short months our winter season at ORPS will draw to a close. And I am sure some of you are thinking about improvements to your lot either before you leave for the summer or during the summer. If that is the case, I encourage you to submit your permit(s) as soon as possible. The A&A Committee workload is already quite heavy and our ability to process permits during the summer may take a little longer than normal. Please don ’ t wait until the last minute! Secondly don ’ t forget that if you do any improvements or repairs to your lot, please check with the office to see if you need a Permit. If unpermitted work is done you may be subject to fines and possibly removal of the unpermitted work. NO WORK CAN START WITHOUT AN APPROVED PERMIT! Next, I encourage every Owner that IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING ! With 1,213 lots in the Resort, it is a challenge for the Compliance office to identify every issue within the Resort in a timely fashion. If you see an issue that needs to be addressed from a Compliance or Rules perspective, please send an email to info@orps.com with the specifics (Lot Number and what needs to be addressed). Your notification is anonymous and will help keep the Resort looking great for all to enjoy. Safety is one of the primary concerns for our Owners. That is why it is so important that the lot number on your lot be visible day and night as well as legible so first responders can find your lot in a timely fashion. Please make sure that is the case for your lot(s). If the light is not working, please open a request in MicroMain and Maintenance will check the bulb and the sensor. If those are not in working order you will need to contact an elec- trician and open a permit for the work. Recently an inventory was taken of those RVs that need some tender loving care from an aesthetics perspective. That includes things like oxidation, faded decals and peeling clearcoat. At some point in the near future approximately 218 Owners will be contacted and will need to address these issues. If you are one of those Owners, I would STRONGLY encourage you to reach out to a vendor to get repairs made. There is a very limited number of vendors that will come to the Resort and address this type of work. As you may already know I am new to the role of A&A Chair. And I am fortunate enough to have a team of dedicated committee members (Owners) who work tirelessly to make sure that the Aesthetics and Architecture rules are followed with the goal of making ORPS a safe and great place for all to enjoy and be proud of. If you see them out and about, please thank them for all that they do. Steve Farley, Board Member & A&A Chair

The Planning Committee welcomes new member Ralph Joiner to its ranks. In the last months the PC finalized a Project Proposal form. This form is intended for Committees and owners of the Resort to fill out when they want to make project proposals to the PC. The PC also finalized and approved a Prioritization Screening Criteria form. This form is similar to what PC ’ s from the past have used. It will assist the PC when assessing project requests presented to the PC. This form will also assist to rank order project requests on a time - line when the PC makes its end of year report to the Board of Directors. The PC has a running list of projects it has put together from suggestions from owners, the Board and the General Manager. These are not all immediate action items or immediate fixes. They will be included in an end of year report presented to the Board as the PC ’ s Charter states that we are to assist the Board of Directors in the development of a long - range Master Plan and to recommend to the Board short term projects that are consistent with the Master Plan
