The greater neighborhood (MW, MRH & the Arbors) is putting on a Halloween Party!
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, from 3 to 5pm at the main, tube slide park.
There will be a scavenger hunt, costume parade, raffle for kids and adults (collecting food donations for MV Food Bank); Lego engineering activity table, pirate game, and refreshments.
To make this event a success, the small group of energetic volunteers who are organizing this event for all of our kids needs your help before and during the event to help things run smoothly and to maximize the fun! They are also looking for: raffle donations (for kids and adults), tables for games and refreshments, and tents and rain shelters. Please see their volunteer site to see how you can get involved: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c45afaa29aaf49-halloween.
Vote regarding Resolution to Cost Share Issues
CLARIFICATION: There has been some confusion about whether this vote would impact owners differently. No. We either retain and execute our real property rights together, or together we forgo pressing for our real property rights and effectively surrender this funding stream for all owners. Your vote does not just affect you, it affects all 301 homes in MW together. If you vote in support, you are enabling the Association to uphold everyone’s property rights in regards to this funding stream.
If anyone is missing a ballot, you can download a copy here: 9.18 Flyer and Ballot.pdf. After you make your selection and fill out your name and address, please mail it to our property management company (there's a link to their address and contact information on the upper right side of this page).
For those who wish to dig into the numbers, the cumulative numbers are available. They are relevant to the question of what funding stream is at issue. The worksheet breaks out section 2.1.2 (which MW and MRH agree upon) separate from 2.12. (MRH does not believe they are responsible for these expenses). These would be the numbers MW would use if the vote ended in a decision to enforce the original, shared interpretation instead of acceeding to MRH's unilateral reinterpretation.
Here is the spread sheet underlying those totals: Shared Expenses Worksheets if enforcing 2.1.2.pdf.

Speed Study update/fact sheet
Maple Woods Homeowners:
As some of you may know, several homeowners and the board of directors have been working with the City of Maple Valley to address the ongoing speeding problem we have in our neighborhood. After three speed studies have shown that we have a significant speed problem, it’s time to act to protect the safety of the children of our neighborhood. The city has chosen to poll the residents of both Maple Woods and Maple Ridge Highlands to determine homeowner support for the proposed traffic calming measures on Maple Ridge Drive and Maple Ridge Way.
Please read the Speed Study Fact Sheet from the City of Maple Valley. Over the next few weeks, please expect a knock at your door to collect a signature of either approval or disapproval of the proposed traffic calming measures. It is very important that we get as many homeowners as possible to weigh in on the matter.

Speeding Concerns in Maple Woods
If you are concerned about speeding vehicles on our streets here in Maple Woods, we need your help!
If the safety of your family and friends when crossing to and from our wonderful parks is a concern, we need your support!
Mark your calendar and join us for the next public comment opportunity at the Maple Valley City Council Meeting on Monday, June 3rd, 7pm at:
Tahoma School District Central Services Facility
25720 Maple Valley - Black Diamond Road SE
Maple Valley, Washington 98038
We'll be asking for City Council to direct City Staff to help us implement a solution. You won't need to speak unless you would like to, however just showing up will demonstrate that this is an issue that many of us find important. Your presence for just 10 minutes would help to demonstrate that there are many of us who care about this issue. Please come and show your support!
The question isn't IF we have a speeding problem on our streets, the question is why more is not being done by the City of Maple Valley to mitigate the problem.
