The New Ad Hoc Committee

A previous post was about the dissolution of the Ad Hoc Financial Advisory Committee. A new ad hoc committee has been established. This one is called the Assessment Analysis Committee. The mission, according to the new board president, is to advise the Bent Tree Board of Directors on the “…feasibility of seeking a CC&R amendment to alter lot assessments in Bent Tree. And, if an amendment is viable, what solution(s) does the committee recommend, and what would be an appropriate timeline.”

A Bent Tree Bullet was sent out a few days ago with a link to the committee’s initial report. The report can be found on Bent Tree’s official website (property owner login required).

1948 – North Georgia

“In North Georgia the situation is quite different. The hunting in this area is typically upland game hunting. Widely separated, mature trees, with little or no underbrush, increases the visibility to 200 yards in these typical southern Appalachian hardwoods.” – Allen, George W. (Georgia State Game and Fish Commission). “The Management of Georgia Deer.” The Journal of Wildlife Management, Vol 12, No. 4. October 1948. Pages 428-432.

The Full Wolf Moon

There was a full moon on Wednesday (photos above and below were taken in Bent Tree). The December and January full moons were back-to-back “mini-moons”. Click here for more information.

The January full moon is known as the “Wolf Moon”. There may not be wolves in Bent Tree, but there are some healthy looking coyotes that can be heard howling at night. Several coyote photos (taken in Bent Tree by trail cameras) have been posted on this website in the past. The most unusual one was of a black coyote.
