Winter 2017-2018

Happy New Year, Briarcliff

As I write this, most of the country is being held hostage by an unprecedented deep freeze. Below zero temperatures and tons of snowfall abound! Unless you are an avid skier, skater or sledder, so far this winter is probably not the winter of your dreams. But it's the winter we've been dealt by Mother Nature, so, in pure Briarcliff fashion, we embrace the good with the bad and charge forward!

Welcome 2018! Another fresh new year. Another time to be thankful for the blessings of the past year and to take stock of our achievements as we look forward to the challenges and opportunities of the coming months.

At the Annual Meeting in December, I reported on the accomplishments we made last year here in Briarcliff; you can review that summary elsewhere in this newsletter. I believe it was a substantial and well prioritized list of which we can all be proud. Again, we were able to stay within our approved budget and handle some major issues with no incremental charges or assessments to our homeowners.

Resolutions for new progress

At the same time, the brand new year is a time to start afresh, to start strong, and yet another chance to make positive changes. For us, that means taking a look at what we can do to improve the quality of our experiences here in Briarcliff, as well as how we can continue to increase our collective property values.

We've identified several desirable improvements to our aging infrastructure and overall subdivision environment as well as some administrative opportunities that we believe would be beneficial to the membership. You will hear more about these plans in the coming months. As always, available resources will dictate what plans become realities.

On behalf of your newly elected Board, I wish you and your families a healthy and happy new year! Stay warm, stay safe, and stay kind. I look forward to hearing from you this year.
