It has been a busy year here at the Moorage in terms of people coming and going. To all the new members and tennants, Welcome to the river!
Hope you find the magic and joy that many of us have found in this floating paradise, from the wildlife, the weather, the water to the laughter and friendships.
Another very Important issue is the distribution to the members of the updated By-Laws and the subsequent town hall meetings to review and get approval.
JBMI's By-laws were written shortly after the moorage became owned by the members - (20 years ago). The world has changed a bit since then! The previous board made the updating of the By-laws a major priority and the working draft has been reviewed by the moorage attorney. There is a bit more work to do and then the draft would be able to be distributed to the members for review, discussion and ratification by majority vote.
It is critically important we agree and pass updated By-laws that relate to the challenges facing the moorage now and into the future. Stay tuned for updates.
See the commonly accepted HOA definitions below for reference.
The continuing saga of A Row
A Row Replacement Project
Funds have been approved for engineering and permits. Next step is to hire an engineer to draw up plans and obtain permits from DSL, Army Corp of Engineers and the City of Portland. With the lower summer river levels the row is level at this time.
From time to time around the moorage we see
realtors using a drone to photograph properties for sale. The Realtor and the Office typically notifies the moorage in advance.
However, as has happened in the past, members have complained recently about a menacing drone that hovers over their docks or boats out in the water flying 10 feet overhead.
This is not okay - in fact it is in violation of members rights to privacy and constitutes harrassment.
If you experience this, watch for where the drone returns. and report it to President Jan Zweerts or a member of the board.
