Thank you to all who attended the 2015 Annual Homeowners meeting. In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights:
Officer Buckhalter from the KCPD North Patrol shared some neighborhood crime stats and asked everyone to keep their eyes open for suspicious activity. He explained how reporting such activity helps the department with leads for related crimes in the area. He urged homeowners to visit crimereports.com and learn about what is happening in our area. Officer Buckhalter answered some questions and offered his contact information to anyone who has concerns about crime in our neighborhood.

Larry Boeshart presented the treasurer’s report. If you missed the meeting and would like to review this information, please contact Larry at (816) 734-0201.
The board held an open discussion with homeowners about concerns in the neighborhood. Among these concerns were the topic of boats and trailers in driveways, and what is considered a reasonable time frame during the Spring and Summer seasons. Nathan Dulle pointed out that the HOA board does not actively search for violations, but will act as a mediator between neighbors and initiate action to enforce the rules as necessary. A neighbor also discussed her experience with the city when she called the 3-1-1 action center regarding deteriorating and broken curbs in front of her house. The city came out and cited HER and then stuck them with a $4000 bill. In Kansas City, HOMEOWNERS are responsible for the curbs in front of their property. You might keep this in mind if you have damaged curbs near your home.
Some neighbors mentioned receiving a postcard from Nextdoor.com, a private social network just for neighbors in Brittany Oaks. It seems like a great way for our neighborhood to communicate privately. As of July 1st, 48 homes have already signed up. CLICK HERE if you would like an invitation.
The President and two board positions were vacated in the past year from board members who moved away. Current Vice President Todd Schreck will also be moving away in the near future. Elections were held to fill these positions and we welcome Sharon Gottschalk and Riley Davis as new board members, Bob Brunker as Vice President and Nathan Dulle as President. Nathan just finished a three year term as a board member and made many positive contributions during his term. Thank you to all of these neighbors for stepping up and helping the neighborhood. We would also like to thank outgoing officers Jim Keeney and Todd Schreck who served many years leading our board. We wish you good luck in your new homes.
The official meeting minutes can be found here.

A dumpster will be placed in the church parking lot on Monday, June 15th sometime before noon for Brittany Oaks residents to use during their Spring cleaning projects. It will be picked up late in the day on Tuesday, June 16th. If the dumpster is full on Monday, please don’t continue to overfill it. Another dumpster will follow.
The dumpster use is for Brittany Oaks Homeowners ONLY. The dumpster will be monitored. Proof of residency in Brittany Oaks will be required. Any “unwelcomed” items could be subject to a $100 fine by the disposal company.
Here are some guidelines:
- Please break down bulky objects as much as possible in order to minimize wasted space in the dumpster. This has been a big problem in the past!
- No major appliances, lawnmowers, etc.
- No tires or batteries.
- No liquid paint, motor oil or hazardous materials.
- No brush/yard waste.
Thank you, we appreciate your cooperation!
