From The General Manager The founders of Lakewood, Farm and Home Savings and Loan, stated in 1973 that the Lakewood Community as designed and as it would be developed over the future, would require a maximum annual assessment rate at 150% of the rise in the Consumer Price Index as it relates to the original assessment that was set at $200 per year. Through the subsequent years, some Lakewood Boards either did not understand this principal or found reason to ignore it. Other Boards did understand it and acted accordingly with proportionately large increases to try to catch up. In the 80’s and primarily in the period from 1996 to 2009 this process became more political than reasonable as ‘Zero Dues Increase’ became a mantra for some who wished to get elected to the Board of Directors. What resulted was too many years of ‘Zero Dues Increase’ and a substantial lack of Reserve Funds as well as the inability to keep up with rising costs and aging assets. In 2015 we reached the pinnacle of unreasonable when some association members elected to file a lawsuit against the Association over a $7.00 per month increase. The Association successfully defended what the Founders told us to be true. Yet the sad reality was that the overall financial impact to the Association cost us four times what the revenue from a $7.00 dues increase would have yielded.

Mark Reid

This November’s Board meeting was, in my opinion, one of the most important in the 44 year history of Lakewood. Presented with all the facts and figures regarding the current and future needs of the Association, the Board voted to set the annual assessment at the calculated Maximum Annual Rate. What is important to know is the Board basically did not have a choice, given their fiduciary duty, other than to set it at the Maximum. Given all the facts, figures, historical data as well as the needs of the Association and the financial impact of Davis et al v. LPOA, the reasonable business judgment mandated, without a doubt, that as an Association we needed to be at the maximum amount or fall much further behind. This was not the first year this has happened. Previous Boards found the need to assess the maximum amount in 1975, 1979 and 1980. As your General Manager, I want you to know that this is very good news for you and your Association. If we all know and learn from the history of the Association and if we all understand the process the founders laid out before us, then we can continue on in a manner that assures stability and relevancy for the Association for many years to come. The positive aspects of the Boards decisions are as follows; • The Association now has the cash flow it requires to tackle the needs of the annual Lakewood Improvements Program (L.I.P) that has for too long been pushed into future years. In 2017 $1.2 Million will be spent on a wide array of much needed improvements in visually significant areas like our shorelines, trees, common ground and other assets. • The Association now has the cash flow to complete the New Pavilion, East Lake Marina and the East Lake Pool without further delay and the ability to pay off the project debt in a very timely fashion. • Future dues increases will be minimal and predictable. Had we been running at the prescribed amount of dues, this year we would have only seen a $1.19 per month dues increase. We hope that in the future, small but consistent increases tied to the Consumer Price Increase will prevent the Association from falling so far behind as we did in the past.

2017 Annual Assessment • The Association now has the cash flow to adequately fund Reserves. This is a critical measure of the wellbeing of the Association. Many states have laws that mandate Boards to prove they have adequate levels of Reserves. Although Missouri currently does not, it is predictable that one day soon it will. The responsible decision is to be adequately funded in our reserves to assure that future Association Boards won’t have to borrow money or have a large special assessment when the laws change. • Improvements throughout the Community will yield a higher incentive for families to move into Lakewood. This will also create much more satisfaction for all the families that live in Lakewood and who are tired of hearing “we don’t have the money for that’. • Lakewood is still a bargain for the price. As compared to other communities with equal amenities and of equal size, our dues, even with this year’s increase, are still well below what others charge. • Waiting longer just gets more expensive. Inflation and Interest Rates will go up. As a result of the Davis vs. LPOA litigation, we saw how expensive just one year of delay can be. For all of you who are reading this, this is the moment when the tarnish is wiped off and our community will once again shine bright. President Lyndon B. Johnsons favorite expression when trying to get opposing groups together was ‘Come let us reason together’. But to reason together, we must all be knowledgeable, truthful and reasonable. After over a year of discourse due to litigation, we must find the way to come together and work together so that the 6.6 square miles of our One Lakewood Community will be preserved in its content, enhanced in its beauty and restored in its pride and reputation. On behalf of all of the Staff of the Lakewood Property Owners Association and the Lakewood Oaks Golf Club, we wish you a safe and joyous holiday season and we look forward to serving our community in the bright New Year.

2017 Maximum Annual Assessment In accordance with the stipulations set out in documents governing the LPOA, the Board of Directors each year must approve a “Maximum Annual Assessment”, prior to approving the “Actual Annual Assessment”. Following those guidelines, at their November 10th meeting, the Board voted to set the Maximum Annual Assessment for 2017 at $1,623.20 annually ($135.27 per month), for a basic single family home and 80% of that amount or $1,298.00 ($108.25 per month) for multi-family units.

2017 Actual Annual Assessment In accordance with the stipulations set out in documents governing the LPOA, the Board must set the “Actual Annual Assessment” after they have set the “Maximum Annual Assessment”. At their regular meeting on November 10th, 2016 the LPOA Board of Directors voted to increase LPOA dues by $25.27 per month ($303.24 annually), setting the “Actual Annual Assessment” for 2017 at $1,623.20 annually ($135.27 per month) for single family homes and 80% of that amount or $1,298.00 annually ($108.25 per month) for multi-family units. This dues increase will become effective January 1, 2017.

Gardens of Lakewood Janet Beebe

Hi, I love my climbing red roses that have been going on 3 years now, and they are very easy to grow and maintain. I’m always surprised how many blooms come on at once. I enjoy bringing them inside to display on the dinner table. #lovemyredroses# The most beautiful iris or flags were given to me from family and a few from neighbors. After a spring rain they seem to flourish even more and they love our backyard location. They enjoy the morning sun & afternoon shade. They are a great way to bring a “pop” of color to anyone’s yard

Pets of Lakewood Roemer-Heady Family

Cabo is very special to our family. He was a rescue dog from the shelter and we got him when he was 3 months old and we have had him for 11 years. He is considered a healer to my parents who keep him for me every day while I am at work. He has stayed by my mother’s side through many surgery’s and is such a comfort to them every day. He also travels to Lowe’s daily with my father who is the maintenance man for our church and others in need, everyone there knows Cabo. He loves the living on the lake, kayaking and paddle boarding to look for ducks is his favorite thing to do although he does not like to swim in it. We still call him Captain Cabo. - The Roemer-Heady Family

Lakewood Reminders Pardon our Dust

Program 2020

“From January 1st through January 11th, the Argyle, St. Andrew’s Pub, and all Lakewood banquet facilities will be closed for cleaning and general maintenance.

Program 2020 is moving forward. You can view the weekly updates to the East Marina, Cove Aquatic Center, and East Lake Village Pool by going to and viewing the Program 2020 tab at the top of the page. This is also linked in our weekly “What’s Happening in Lakewood” E ‘blast. If you’re not signed up for email communications, contact Tim at tim@lpoa. com or 816-373-4326.

Each year the Food and Beverage staff takes a few weeks after the New Year to upgrade, clean, and replace equipment, tables and chairs. We apologize for this inconvenience, but after this short break, we’ll be raring to go and ready to host you and your guests in 2017. Lastly, and most importantly, the Food and Beverage staff want to wish you and your loved ones a safe, happy holiday season.”

LAkewood Resident Directory

Digital Ripples

We just wanted to take some time to remind you that the Lakewood Resident Directory is always available online. The resident directory is updated at least once a month with all of our new residents. It is a great tool to get to know your neighbors. The resident directory is arranged alphabetically and also by street, so you are able to view your neighbors, or look up phone numbers for friends and neighbors. It also has important local and Lakewood phone numbers and it includes the names of your LPOA staff. You do have to be a member of our website, LPOA. com to have access to the directory. From our website you can either view or download the directory to your computer or tablet. For those that are already members of the website, you can find the resident directory under the “Community” tab at the top of the page. If you look at the directory and see any incorrect information, you can contact Tim Martineau at tim@ and he can help you with whatever needs you may have. We hope that this tool will allow you to get to know your neighbors and fellow residents.

With the rising cost of printing and postage, and the competition and decline of printed advertising, we thought it best to take a hard look at Lakewood’s official magazine and form of communication, The Ripples. Many publications are going to a digital format. For now, The Ripples will continue to be sent to the printer each month and delivered to your mailbox. The Ripples will also continue to be published online, and is in fact being digitally published in a more attractive format. Members have the option to “opt out” of The Ripples mailing, and can simply receive the copy online. I urge every one of our members who don’t read the printed magazine, or would like to save a tree to sign the “opt out” agreement, and receive a digital copy online. You’ll still get the great publication, without the paper to dispose of. If you are interested in only receiving the Digital Ripples, please send an email to, or fill out the form on page 20 and mail it in or drop it off at the administrative office.

Lakewood Reminders House Watch

Resident ID Card Renewal At last, we are finally ready to issue new resident ID cards! Please note ALL Lakewood residents will need a new card – so stop by the LPOA office soon to save from standing in line later. LPOA office hours are: Monday-Friday, 8:30 am – 5 pm. Thank you for your patience. during this process!

Ice Dangers The LPOA’s policy regarding ice safety states that “The LPOA is not responsible for any accidents casusing injury, death or property damage due to ice skating, ice boating, persons chopping holes in the ice surface, ice fishing or any other activity on or around the ice. Such activities are undertaken at your own risk.”

The Lee’s Summit Police Department offers a House Watch to be used if you are out of town. If you wish to be added to LSPD’s House Watch, please contact LSPD at 969-1700. Don’t forget to contact LPOA as well so our Community Service Staff can keep an extra eye on your property as well.

Property Maintenance Issues Staff makes this a daily priority. If there is a property you have concerns about, please do not hesitate to call the office (816)373-4326. We can tell you what action has already been taken and where we are in the process for getting that property maintained to Lakewood standards. Please remember, we must follow all policies and procedures during

Common Areas Remember, LPOA’s policy is that anyone using LPOA common areas must have a current LPOA ID with them. Please make your children aware of this policy. And, with respect to your common areas: All residents engaged in fishing shall have a current LPOA identification card on themselves at all times while fishing. City of Lee’s Summit does require all dogs outside of a fenced yard to be properly leashed. Do not allow your dog to soil the common ground or your neighbors’ yards. Be a courteous and responsible pet owner and clean up after your dog. The tennis courts and basketball courts can become damaged due to roller blading and skateboarding. This is not allowed and it is clearly marked in designated areas. Please alert your children. Watch for children playing on the streets of Lakewood. All residential streets are 25 MPH except where posted otherwise. Please, next time you are driving through your neighborhood, be aware of your speed.

Winter Updates Christmas Tree Pickup Christmas tree pickup will be available starting December 27th, 2016 and ending January 13th, 2017. The cost is $5 per tree. Please call (816)3734326 for pickup. Trees should be placed at the curb for pickup the following morning.

Snow Plowing Responsibility Streets plowed by the City of Lee’s Summit Lakewood Boulevard Lake Drive Gregory Dick Howser Drive Channel Drive Fairway Homes Northgate Crossing Beechwood Drive Driveways and Sidewalks - Responsibility of the Parcels Lakewood Bay Landings Lakeshore Townhomes Lakeshore Condominiums Waters Edge Clubhouse Cottages Lakewood Shores Chapel Ridge - Woods Chapel Ridge - Greens LAKEWOOD MAINTENANCE DOES ALL OTHER STREETS

Lakewood Snow Removal Policy Snow removal starts as soon as snow accumulation reaches two inches. The goal of the maintenance crew is to have all streets plowed and treated by 6:00am for the residents’ morning commute to work. Storms are unpredictable and come with many varirables. Therefore, please keep in mind that each storm and its circumstances dictate the policy of snow removal. The LPOA is responsible for snow removal on all streets within Lakewood with the exception of: Lakewood Boulevard, Lake Drive, Gregory Drive, Channel Drive, Dick Howser Drive, Fairway Homes Drive (by the Shores), Northgate Crossing, and Beechwood. Those streets are the responsibility of Lee’s Summit. Below are a few things we can all do to ensure that each street gets treated properly: 1. If there’s any way that vehicles can be parked in the driveway, please do so. If a street is crowded with vehicles, it cannot be plowed or sanded properly. Piles of snow are left up and down the street when maintenance vehicles have to dodge parked cars, making it impossible to clean the road all the way to the curb. 2. When using snow blowers, please try to direct output to the yard and not the street. Nothing is more frustrating for your neighbors to have a freshly cleaned street filled with snow from several driveways. 3. Please be patient. If you feel the job was not done properly, please feel free to contact the administrative office. We will happily assist you, but please keep in mind that staff’s first priority after a snow storm is to “open up” the roadways. We then return to each area for a more detailed clean up. Lakewood is comprised of more than 2,000 acres, and our crew works as quickly and safely as possible to ensure that everyone makes it in and out.

What’s Happening In Your Lakewood Boat Slip Lease Agreements Due January 1st, 2017 Boat Slip Lease Agreements are to be mailed between November 1st and November 10th. Those lease agreements are due and payable by January 1st, 2017. There is a grace period until January 16th, 2017. Payment made between January 17th and 31st will be assessed with a $100.00 late fee. After January 31st, the lease agreement is null and void. Policy effective 12/31/06 - All boat slips are to be occupied by a boat that is titled to the Primary Lessee, by the proper state agency or division. Primary Lessee must also be named as an insured on the insurance policy for the boat docked in a boat slip. 2017 boat stickers will only be mailed to those lessees who have boat title and proof of insurance on file in the LPOA offices.

2017 Boat Stickers Now Available 2017 Boat Registration stickers are now available in the LPOA office. The stickers are $31.50 for nonmotorized and $81.00 for motorized. There will be an additional $6.50 charge if you do not purchase your stickers for your previously-registered watercraft before May 1st, 2017. There is a $19.00 charge if you would like for staff to attach your stickers for you.

LPOA Holiday Schedule Christmas: Closed Monday, December 26th. New Year’s Day: Closed Monday, January 2nd. The Maintenance Department will follow the above schedule unless there is snow to plow. Community Services will be on duty 24/7 the entire holiday season. Please call them at 373-1500 should you need any assistance.

Lake Water Irrigation Fees Please note the lake irrigation fee is NOT for use of the lake water, but rather for access to the lake water. Access means you have an irrigation pump and intake lines. So long as you have either of these two things, you are considered to have “access to lake water” and must pay the lake water irrigation fee. If you do not wish to pay the lake water irrigation fee for 2016, you will need to remove the pump and intake lines before December 31st, 2016 and notify LPOA by calling 373-4326 that you have done so.

Lakewood Information Concrete Projects It’s time to replace your driveway or patio. You’ve received ARB/ARC approval and the contractor just finished pouring several yards of cement. The concrete truck driver pulls along the curb and begins to wash the concrete from his chute……right into the storm drain……..and likely right into our lake. This is the part where you stop him and say, “Thanks for the cement. Now please go wash out elsewhere.” While most ready mix drivers are responsible, these things do occasionally happen, and it’s important that we’re all educated. To prevent an illegal discharge, and a violation of Lee’s Summit Ordinance, the following guidelines should be observed: • • • • •

Washout water should not leave the wash out location. Runoff from a rainstorm or rapid snowmelt will not carry wastes away from the washout location. Washout will not impact future land uses (i.e., parks, open spaces, etc.). Permission to washout has been granted by the property owner. The location is accessible to the vehicle.

The next time you or a neighbor has a project that requires ready mix, please remind the driver to find a suitable site to clean out.

Lakewood Parcels & Private Roads We often receive questions regarding locations of access points to the lakes and common areas. The best tool for this is the Jackson County Parcel Viewer, which is linked on the front page of Lakewood’s website. The parcel viewer will allow you to see which properties are privately owned and which ones are owned by the association. There are a few exceptions. The multi-family parcels have areas that are maintained and governed by those parcels. Some even have a private street for exclusive use of their parcel members. Both Waters Edge Drive and Point Drive are private streets, paid for and maintained by those parcel members. As well, the parking lots in Lakewood Bay are exclusively for the members of that parcel. All of LPOA membership is permitted to use the common areas, lakes and docks, but please be mindful of how you access these areas. Using private property can create a safety or privacy concern for the homeowners. Using a private street or parking lot will take up a parcel member’s space and could mean having the vehicle towed. There are plenty of LPOA owned access points to reach the common elements, and as always, you can contact us with any questions or concerns.

Lakewood Safety Reminders Attention Lakewood Walkers, Joggers & Bikers I’d like to remind everyone of a few safety precautions that should be taken when walking, jogging, or biking in the community. I personally drive into Lakewood in the wee hours of the morning, when it’s still dark, and always see folks out walking, quite often in or very near the drive lanes and wearing dark colored clothes. A few reminders for everyone, whether walking, biking, or driving: • • • • • • •

Always wear something reflective, front and back, when walking , jogging, or biking. Carry a flashlight. Stay on the sidewalks when possible while walking. Stay in the Bike Lane when biking. Stay alert for vehicular traffic. When driving in darker conditions, slow down in order to further your sight distance. Stay Alert! Never text and drive. Keep an eye out for pedestrians or hazards. Please be safe on our Lakewood streets, for everyone’s sake! Sean Bachtel LPOA Director of Community Relations

Holiday Shopping Safety The holiday season is in full swing and soon we’ll all be out spending our cash to further spoil our children and grandchildren by buying those “must have” presents. Unfortunately, many of those mall and store parking lots will be patrolled by a more undesirable group of shoppers, better known as thieves. A few tips to avoid theft and keep yourself safe during holiday shopping: • Park in a well lit space and be aware of your surroundings. • Lock the car and hide the shopping bags and gifts in the trunk (or better yet, in the house). • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. • Leave valuables and large purses at home. • If you’re shopping with children, make sure they know who to contact if you become separated. On behalf of all of Lakewood’s staff, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.

Many families in Lakewood are missing out on a great deal of timely information from Lakewood Communications regarding events, reminders, etc. Tim is in charge of Communications and sends out the “eblasts” to those on the email list. So many in our neighborhood believe they are signed up for it and are not, therefore they are missing out on important information. We put out a weekly newsletter called “Whats Happening in Lakewood”. The only way you will receive this email is to join our e-blast list. So don’t miss out and sign up today! It is simple to register, just send an email to and let him know you would like to be added. You will be added. You will then receive great information, through the “eblasts”. The information we send is very helpful, professional and timely. We don’t fill your inbox, we just send enough emails to keep you informed.
