The meeting of the Lake Barcroft Association (LBA) was called to order at 7:39 PM by President David Goslin at 6425 Lakeview Drive, Falls Church, Virginia.  Those present were LBA Directors David Goslin, George McLennan, Karen Wehner, Kevin Howe, Diane Davidson, Pete Walker, Stuart Feldstein and Jerry Mendenhall.  Board members Shirley Timashev, Mike Stahl, Frank Aukofer, Carolyn Coldren and Lark Lovering were not present. 


The minutes of October 19, 2005 were approved as presented. 




CALENDAR REVIEW:  The calendar was reviewed.


NOMINATING COMMITTEE UPDATE:  George reported that the committee was still searching for candidates to run for the LBA Board.  He reported that 7 people are up for re-election of which only 4 have agreed to run again.  A total of ten candidates are needed on the ballot.  George is going off of the board after serving 6 years and Karen and Diane have decided not to run again.  Kevin, Shirley, Dave and Jerry have agreed to run for the Board again.  Six new candidates are still needed of which George reported that he had one.  The Board was asked to think of possible candidates and e-mail their names to him for the committee’s consideration.




JEB STUART CREW REQUEST:  Dave asked the Board if they had any questions about a recent e-mail received requesting use of the lake for JEB Stuart to use for rowing practice during our off season.  Kevin discussed why they are requesting to use the lake again for their practice.  Dave explained the history and time frame when it was previously used.  Insurance coverage is an issue that Karen raised.  Diane questioned where the boats were coming from for concern of our water quality and that they would need to be cleaned prior to launching into the lake.  Further discussion will take place at the December Board meeting where representatives for the crew team will attend to present their request.


2006 PROPOSED BUDGET:  Karen distributed a draft budget for the Boards review and discussed the various categories.  A few minor changes were made at this time. 

Karen Wehner made a motion, seconded by Kevin Howe, for the Board to authorize up to $10,000 for trees and $2,000 for the Parcel A Survey in 2005.  All voted in favor.




ARC:  Kevin gave his report on recent activity.  Stuart stated that he has sent a response letter to the attorney representing a resident regarding various issues and was waiting for a response.  Kevin added that the WID is in the process of preparing the beach 5 area for the dredging soils and will also be working on beach 3 in case anyone asks what work is taking place.


COMMUNITY WATCH:  Pete presented a map from the county of proposed changes to the Bailey’s Crossroads southeast quadrant area that will be taking place in the near future.


IMPROVEMENTS:  Kevin reported that he has contacted an engineering firm and will set up a meeting shortly to walk the Parcel A site.  Concern has been expressed about the boundary lines.  Dave suggested having a survey done of the Parcel A area. 


Dave mentioned George’s technology committee and their question about if there are enough issues within the community that would warrant a survey of the community. 


The meeting was adjourned at 9:12 PM.


Respectfully submitted by Chris Lawson, acting secretary.
