The meeting of the Lake Barcroft Association (LBA) was called to order at 7:49 PM by President Dave Goslin at 3620 Ridgeway Terrace, Falls Church, Virginia. Those present were LBA Directors David Goslin, George McLennan, David Feld, David Dale, Frank Aukofer, Karen Wehner, Pete Walker, Shirley Timashev, Diane Davidson and Kevin Howe. Board members not present were Mac Canter, Regina Derzon and Uri Arkin.


Pete made a motion and Frank seconded to accept the minutes of July 14, 2004 approved as corrected.






APPOINTMENT OF A NOMINATING COMMITTEE: Dave called attention to the list of Board members going off of the Board. The Board will be looking for 9 candidates with possibly 4 being incumbents. George will form the Nominating Committee for the upcoming 2005 LBA election.




SPECIAL EVENTS: Shirley reported that the Labor Day games are coming up on September 6.


WATER SAFETY: David stated that a Water Safety Supervisor had not been selected. He also reported that there presently were only two boats available for sale so there will not be a boat auction this year.


TREASURER: Karen asked the Board to review their budgeted category for this year in order to know their actual expenses. Budget proposals should be submitted at the next Board meeting from committee members. Tax returns will be prepared shortly.


COMMUNITY WATCH/SECURITY: Pete reported that the police patrol participation was better this year as compared to last. He also reported that two trespassers were arrested and will be taken to court in September.


ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY: Diane is considering developing guidelines for plant materials for the community. Kevin will be holding a tree planting project in the Spring. Dave suggested that LBA consider matching contributions from donations collected towards this project.


Diane suggested the environmental handbook be issued as a separate publication from the community handbook. The environmental document will consist of approximately 50 pages. She would like to incorporate WID's input as well.


PUBLICATIONS: Frank reported that the directory is close to going to print. By-laws need to be reviewed at the next Board meeting.



The meeting was adjourned at 9:04 PM.


Respectfully submitted by,


Chris Lawson, Lake Manager
