- JLPOA Activities -
Bill Howe reported the POA is considering increasing the size of
its board from 5 to 7. Presently there are 4 elected members
plus 1 member that is jointly appointed by the Marina and JLGC.
The new arrangement would have 5 elected members, 1 Marina appointee
and 1 JLGC appointee. All would be JL residents.
The POA is working to have the trains blow their horns less
during the nightime hours and/or have quieter horns installed.
They are requesting the construction of a right turn lane as
you approach Mack Dairy road on the way to Old Trail. This
would decrease the chance of being rear-ended as you slow for the turn.
The Angel Tree program has been even more successful than last year.
Next year the POA will contribute $60,000 of the income earned
from real estate operations to the combined effort of the POA and
JLGC to promote Jonathan's Landing.

issue of allowing a real estate sales office within JL on a civic parcel.
