The Annual Meeting is an important Community event that is open to all HOA members as well as our neighbors outside of the HOA boundary, but still in our development.
This meeting reviews the HOA Committee Activity, Budget, current state of the HOA and updates from the President and other Board Members. If you have ever been curious about the what the Association does for you, this is the meeting to attend.
The Board has special guest presentations at the meeting. Last year, Fire Captain Reed (who is our neighbor) spoke to the meeting attendees. OPD, Captain Tull spoke in 2013.
Please keep an eye out for your voting proxy, RSVP and more information about the meeting. If you only attend one SHHOA event in 2015, this is the one to attend!!

As many of you may have noticed, PGE has been hard at work for many weeks bringing additional 220v service to upper Hansom. They have been pulling new cable to the corner of Hansom and Pinecrest for many weeks now. In fact, on January 21st, they inadvertently cut through a Comcast cable buried in the street, knocking out service to a large part of Hansom. That was quite the topic on the Yahoo! group!! Repair crews were on the scene quickly and both PGE and Comcast worked together to get service restored.
PGE has now sent a notice to upper Hansom residents (by mail!) of a planned electrical outage on February 11th between 8:30-9:30 am and again at 2-2:30 pm to do the final tie-in. They’ve done a good job of traffic control, as well as noise and dust abatement, during all the trenching and construction. But we are all happy to see the project reaching completion!
