Capes News – February 2023


We’ve had several sightings of large raccoons in the wooded areas around The Capes lately, so please just keep an eye out when you’re out walking the property. Typically they don’t cause any issues, but they can become aggressive if they feel threatened or if they have babies nearby that they are trying to protect.


April Elections Reminder

Terms will be up for reelection this April for two seats on the Board of Directors. Both seats are for 3-year terms. Could one of those seats have your name on it?


If you are a go-getter who is interested in helping to effect positive change within the community by serving on the board, the first thing you’ll need to do is declare your intent to run. Your intention to run should be in writing and must be received via email or US Mail by 5:00 pm on Friday, February 17, 2023. All homeowners who will be running will be announced at the board meeting on February 18, 2023.


Here is the contact information for declaring your intent to run:


The Capes Homeowners Association
605 Capes Drive
Tillamook, OR 97141


If you’ve got questions about board member responsibilities and/or obligations, feel free to ask. If you’d like to see the board in action, join us on Zoom for the next meeting on Saturday, February 18, 2023 to see what it’s all about.


Annual Homeowner Meeting

Our annual meeting of homeowners will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023 at 9:30 am, and will once again be held virtually via Zoom video conferencing. More emails will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead regarding meeting packets and ballots, so keep an eye out!


Phase II Townhome Painting

The painters will be back this year for Phase II of exterior townhome trim painting. If your townhome is on lot numbers 40 through 77, you are in Phase II, and you are on the schedule for trim and front door painting starting in May (weather permitting, as always). If you don’t know your lot number, this group includes the following Capes Drive addresses: 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170, 180, 195, 205, 215, 225, 235, 245, 255, 265, 275, 285, 295, 305, 315, 325, 335, 345, 355, 365, 375, 385, 395, 430, 440, 450, 460, 470, and 480.


Please note – the painters cannot paint over trim boards that are rotten. If you have trim that needs to be repaired or replaced and you can have that done before the painting starts, then it can be painted with the rest of the house. If you aren’t able to get it fixed prior, our painters will skip that board and you will be responsible for having it painted once it has been repaired/replaced.


More information will be sent out as we get closer to the start date. (For example, what the actual start date will be.)
