Artist Lake Condominium


The Owners for Artist Lake Condominium Board of Managers Reform

Dear Artist Lake Condominium Owner:

It is our strong belief that the current Artist Lake Board Managers is no longer the right fit for the Artist Lake Condominium.

The resident owners on the Board are absent. They have little presence or voice in our community. They appear to have no interest, or a very narrow interest at best, in the community as a whole.

The nonresident Board members have no connection to our community. Their lives and homes are elsewhere. Their interest lies only in the cash flow and profits their units generate for their LLCs. Their non presence in our community and their narrow interests hurt our equity, the value of our property, our quality of life and the perception Artist Lake Condominium has in the surrounding communities outside the condominium.


Special Meeting of the Artist Lake Condominium Owners.


The annual meeting of the owners was held in January 2023. Attendance did not meet the 51% of total authorized votes of all Homeowners present, in person or by written proxy, necessary to constitute a quorum at the Annual Meeting of the Homeowners for the transaction of condominium business, and  required by the Artist Lake Condominium By-Laws.

Certain Homeowners who were present at the annual meeting and were entitled to vote thereat were not given opportunity to adjourn the meeting by announcement, until such time a Special Meeting of the Homeowners could be had where a quorum is present, or represented, and where business can be transacted at said Special Meeting, such as it would have been transacted at the original annual meeting.

Therefore, certain owners of the condominium aim to force a Special Meeting of the Owners whereas a quorum will be present to transact condominium business and elections.

We ask that you sign our petition to force this Special Meeting of the Owners.

When a special meeting is granted and if you are unable to attend in person you will be asked by certain owners to appoint a proxy. The purpose: To obtain a quorum and vote in your absence.

Your proxy must be an owner who will be attending the special meeting. Your proxy will count towards the meeting quorum. A quorum that is required for the condominium to transact official condominium business. 


Your proxy will also have full power to vote for you, in your name, place, and stead in the same manner and to the same extent, and with the same effect that you would have if you were personally present at the Special Meeting.

You have your choice of proxy. It is our hope that you will choose a proxy who believes in and will carry out the Artist Lake Reform Committee’s Mission, Vision, and Pledge called out below.

Regardless of your choice of proxy, it is important that you select someone who plans to attend the meeting, so that a quorum can be reached.
