VG Residents Invited to New Hartman Homes Model

Pam Hoye of Hartman Homes has invited all Victor Gardens residents to Harman's new model home during the upcoming Spring Parade of Homes (Feb 28 - March 22).  I've asked Pam to provide a little information about their new model, and a picture for residents to see what it will look like when its completed.  -Mark
New Hartman Homes model in Victor Gardens!  A true Craftsman rambler chalk full of detail, an open common sense layout, and tons of windows. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms make this home a perfect fit for empty nesters or for a growing family. Beautiful oak hardwood floors and millwork, Andersen windows, and James Hardie board exterior. Discover or reacquaint yourself with Victor Gardens and come see Hartman Homes book of custom homes.   We are house #57 in the Parade book.

Ryland Homes Request Approved by Master Board

In a split vote at its Board meeting this week, the Victor Garden Community Association (Master) Board, sitting as the Master Architectural Review Committee, approved an amended request by Ryland Homes to allow 14 garage-forward designated lots in Victor Gardens' Single Family Village.  This increases the allowed number up from the ARC's previously allowed 10, but less than the unlimited number Ryland asked for a few months ago.  
Michael Noonan (of Rottlund Homes) voted yes LaVonne Fitzgerald (of the Villas Assn.) voted yes Carmen Carter (of the Gables Assn.) voted yes Len Pratt (of Pratt Homes) abstained Michael Warner (of the Single Family Village) voted no Mark Vlker (of the Single Family Village)  voted no

Groundwater Update

The Hugo City Council met this week and briefly discussed groundwater issues affecting many Single Family Village homes.  Bryan Bear, Hugo's Development Director, will contact me to actively involve residents in the next steps of the process.  
I have received emails from residents interested in getting involved, but more are still welcome.  Please contact me to be included:  mark@victorgardensnews.org
