At the most recent meeting of the Arbor Villebois Homeowners Association Board of Directors, the Board received a report that was previously requested by the Board of a committee to research and make recommendations for a more equitable and representative method for the VCCA Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors of the Townhomes at Arbor Villebois Owners Association previously reported to you in early March 2013 that Alliance Forensic Building Consultants (Alliance) would be on site performing a visual inspection of our townhomes. That visual inspection raised concerns regarding the weather resistance of the siding, caulking and flashing of the older townhomes, particularly in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Arbor Villebois. Alliance completed a further, more detailed exploratory inspection of exterior siding components (the building envelope) on select townhomes in July 2013. Click here to read more.
The Board of Directors of the Townhomes at Arbor Villebois Owners Association previously reported to you in early July 2013 that Alliance Forensic Building Consultants would be on site performing an exploratory inspection of exterior siding components on select townhomes in July 2013. Workers were inspecting the exterior building envelop of our townhomes from ladders, on roofs and around windows during that work.
The work described above was a second, more detailed inspection following the building envelope visual inspection done in March 2013. That visual inspection raised concerns regarding the weather resistance of the siding, caulking and flashing of the older townhomes, particularly in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Arbor Villebois. Generally, those townhomes built in 2009 and later, were built with more care in addressing weather resistant issues. Generally, those townhomes built before 2009 were apparently built with a different level of attention to the details of weather resistant issues.
Alliance Forensic Building Consultants have prepared and submitted two written reports of their findings. They will be attending the Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday August 20th to discuss their reports and findings.
The Board of Directors encourages all homeowners of Townhomes at Arbor Villebois to attend this meeting on August 20th at 6:30 PM in order to understand the issues with our townhomes.
The TAVOA Board will be beginning the process to determine our next steps and methods of addressing these findings based upon the additional inspection work that was done in July.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Community Manager, Lorie Jaraba, via the following email or phone number: email@example.com or 503-718-5253. For more information on the townhomes, please ask Lorie Jaraba to add your email address to her townhome email distribution list.
Townhomes at Arbor Villebois Owners Association (TAVOA) Board of Directors
On Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 6:00 PM, there will be a special open AVOA & AVTOA Board of Directors meeting for the purpose of discussing with Management Trust some financial reporting issues. This meeting will be held at the Management Trust office, which is located at 17700 SW Upper Boones Ferry Road, Suite #120, Portland, OR. This is just a short distance North of the “T” intersection at SW Upper Boones Ferry Road and SW Lower Boones Ferry Road.
Here’s one persons take on the July 11th meeting with Polygon regarding the development of the Living Enrichment Center property. On the positive side they’re planning to build larger and more expensive homes. This should aid in raising home prices in the area. Also, they will be leaving about half of the area in open space.
On the negative side, the current plan calls for all houses to be clumped together without any green space between them. Also, the plan calls for the removal of all trees at the north end that backs up against existing Arbor homes. Unless the plan changes those homes will be looking at the back of Polygon homes instead of trees.
The worst part is that traffic from the 121 homes will be directed to Normandy Lane and then to St. Tropez Ave. for egress and ingress. Cars already speed on Normandy, envision it with a couple hundred more cars going in and out of Villebois every day toward Wilsonville. Also imagine all the additional cars turing on and off Costa Circle at St. Tropez. They countered that residents could use Grahams Ferry, but who is going to want to drive way out of their way to get to Wilsonville.
We were told that they would give consideration to our comments, but gave the impression that nothing could be done about most of the items that we brought up. If you have concerns about anything mentioned above, you’re encouraged to follow up with the City of Wilsonville planning department before it’s too late.
Thursday July 11, 2013 at 6:45pm. This meeting has to do with the development of the Living Enrichment Center property and since it does have a common border with Arbor Villebois all residents should be aware and are encouraged to attend this meeting.
