FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
Aqua-Terr Systems Inc (ATSI), the company that monitors our wetland areas for compliance with management criteria from the WA State Department of Ecology and the US Army Corps of Engineers, will be on-site Tuesday, April 6th for their spring monitoring visit. They are qualified and certified, so do not be alarmed by their activities.
The purpose of this Board resolution (# 2021-01) is to correct an obsolete reference in the Meadows CC&Rs.
The original process was to submit Architectural Review Committee (ARC) applications to Underwood and Associates LLC in Anacortes where they would be processed for a $350 fee. That process ended when Meadows LLC transferred full responsibility for HOA business to the HOA membership. The current process includes no fees and requires that the applications be submitted to the HOA ARC.

ATSI will be on-site today (Tuesday, 25 August) to conduct their fall monitoring and data collection for our Wetland areas.
From: My Ferndale News on JULY 23, 2020 AT 2:06 PM
Officials with the Whatcom County Fire Marshal’s Office announced today due to the warm weather conditions ahead and decreasing fuel moisture levels they will be enacting restrictions on open burning throughout unincorporated Whatcom County starting at 8 am on Monday, July 27th.
Officials with the Whatcom County Fire District 11, serving Lummi Island, also have announced fire danger will be raised to “HIGH”, also at 8 am on Monday, July 27th, and a burn ban will go into effect for the island at that time.
Whatcom County Fire District 17, serving the Sandy Point region, implemented a permanent burn ban this year prohibiting residential yard debris, beach debris and land clearing fires at any time.
A similar permanent burn ban is in place within the City of Ferndale and surrounding Urban Growth Areas.
In areas with burn bans in effect, recreational fires (e.g. campfires) are still allowed only if less than 2-feet in diameter, be at least 25 feet from structures, burn only seasoned firewood or charcoal and there is a charged garden hose or 10 gallons of water with a bucket nearby. All fires must be cold to touch prior to leaving alone and no burning is allowed when winds exceed 7 mph.
Someone has spray-painted some obscene graffiti on the “Meadows” sign at the entry to our community from Thornton Road onto Monument Drive.
This act of vandalism has been reported to the Ferndale Police Department. They have advised us that there was a similar incident on Church Road.
We are researching was to remove the graffiti from the stonework and hope to take care of this very quickly.
The Board hopes you are all doing well.
President, Meadows-Ferndale HOA
