2017 YEAR END REVIEW

The purpose of the PLVC as stated in our Article of Incorporation continues to be threefold: Be a unifying force by building consensus, maintain and preserve trails and open space, promote the general interests of the community. To accomplish those purposes, the past year has seen the settlement of the tree harvest dispute in conjunction with LMC

2017 PLVC BOARD OF DIRECTORS – CANDIDATE SUMMARIES

Although the election is not until October 5, ballots will be arriving in the mail during the first week of September.  It is requested that residents return their ballot to the Bay or Beach Club as soon as possible.  Below are brief biographies of our neighbors who have volunteered to be on the Board.

Paul Hinton moved here from California after an extensive flying career with U.S. Air Force, American Airlines and Boeing.  He was involved in flying, management and training.  He also has a law degree and practiced as a trial attorney.

Pat Page is from California but moved here from the Azores off Portugal.  Her professional background was with the National Association of Music Merchants, promoting music in public schools and assisting her daughter and husband in family businesses.

Caleb Summerfelt is currently on the PLVC board and is running as an incumbent.  He grew up in Port Gamble and is currently the CIO and Director of Acquisitions for a fabrication/engineering company.

Phyllis Waldenberg moved here in 2003 from Seattle but her roots are in Montana.  Her professional experience is in interior design, real estate development, marketing and sales.  She has owned two houses in Port Ludlow and served on the Teal Lake Village board.

Paul Wynkoop arrived from Oregon but hails from Western Pennsylvania.  Experiences as a musician in the U.S. Navy were followed by an extensive career in human resources both in the private sector and the Air Force reserve.  He has significant volunteer experience in such organizations as Boy Scouts, United Way and Rotary, among others.

These candidates will join Bill Dean and Tam McDearmid as elected board members along with Randy Deering and Gil Skinner, appointed by virture of their positions as president of the LMC and SBCA. The current board of directors are quite pleased with the caliber of community residents whom have stepped up to serve.  “This slate combines strength from the past coupled with new ideas from a wide range of experiences and geographies,” according to PLVC Vice President, Tam McDearmid.

UPDATE – IRON MOUNTAIN QUARRY (IMQ) LEGAL FUND DISPOSITION

By reviewing additional old records, the PLVC has found documentation that any funds not used will be returned on a prorata basis.” The records are incomplete regarding the list of donors. We have some indications in the PLVC Minutes, some envelopes with amounts written on them and some recollections from directors at the time.

The funds not used total $3,645 of the $52,700 that was contributed. That means that the amount to be returned would be 6.92% of the amount contributed. Said another way, if someone had contributed $100, they would now be eligible to receive a $6.92 refund.

PLVC will be happy to refund monies based on this calculation. If you would like a refund, please contact us by clicking HERE. We will research what records we do have or will ask that you provide some documentation of your contribution. Documentation does not need to be a cancelled check or anything overly formal, but a listing from a check register or something similar.

If you do not advise us by March 15, 2017, that you would desire a refund, we will be consolidating the remaining balance into operating funds of PLVC which will be used in fulfillment of our mission to be a unifying force within the Community.

Yours truly,
Bill Dean, President

IRON MOUNTAIN FUNDS TO BE CONSOLIDATED

 1. The PLVC has maintained $3,645.00, in a separate Iron Mountain Quarry (IMQ) checking account since November 1, 2012. This represents 6.92% of the $52,700.00, of the known PLVC IMQ activity funding.

2. The Board of Directors has not found any records indicating any directions or requests from contributors about how any unspent funds should be used.

3. Accordingly, unless sufficient documentation is provided to the Board by March 15, 2017, establishing that the funds were contributed on the condition that unspent amounts were to be refunded to the contributors or otherwise used in some specified way, and establishing that any particular contributors are entitled to a particular refund or to some other particular disposition of the remaining unspent funds, then the Board will assume that those funds are not subject to special restrictions on use and will apply those funds to whatever PLVC purposes the Board deems appropriate.

PLEASE VOTE!

AMENDMENTS TO THE ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION AND BYLAWS

The PLVC Board of Directors is considering amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, to be submitted for approval by the Voting Members at the October 6, 2016 Annual Meeting. PLVC is unlike LMC and SBCA in that it is not a homeowners association. It is a nonprofit corporation whose fundamental mission is to be a “unifying force” in promoting and protecting the general interests of the Port Ludlow community. Its Voting Members are owners of real property within the Port Ludlow Master Planned Resort (“MPR”) who have either voted at the last PLVC Annual Meeting or have provided a written notice to the Board of Directors asking to become a Voting Member. The board encourages all owners of property within the MPR to become Voting Members and to participate actively in PLVC.
