Lansdowne HOA President Resigns

Lansdowne HOA President Resigns

The Lansdowne Homeowner’s Association board will be seeing some major changes in the coming months.

During a special meeting, Tuesday, July 7, the Lansdowne board appointed Dave Macfarlane, a recently appointed chair to the community’s finance committee, to replace outgoing president Eric Florence. Florence resigned from the HOA board to spend more time with his family.

Macfarlane will hold the president’s position until November, when all five of the board member positions will be up for re-election, Bill Boos, Lansdowne’s general manager, said. The community’s HOA has been controlled by residents since July, when developer Hobie Mitchell stepped down.

Boos said the appointment of Macfarlane followed the proper procedure to fill a temporary position.

"It’s what our documents call for," he said.

In addition to changes on the board, Lansdowne continues to grapple with possible amendments to its home business covenants, following a ban on home businesses this spring. A special meeting of the association has been scheduled for Aug. 29, at 6:30 p.m., to consider the proposed amendment.
