Dear LTVPOA Members,
Through the years, Lake Tansi Village has shown its resilience and proved its ability to survive. Our community residents and the natural beauty of our resort continue to attract many who partake of the wonderful offerings here.
We continually strive to improve the joy and fulfillment of those who live here, those who invest here and those who choose to visit and spend time with us.
Many of the amenities that make our community great need to be repaired, upgraded and/or improved in order to assure sustained pleasure for us and value for future generations.
The LTVPOA Board has reviewed the state of our valued amenities and realizes that certain improvements are necessary at this time. We have attached a list of those amenities deemed most in need of improvement or repairs and for which special funding is needed. Some of these are approaching unsafe condition.
No operational or budget dollars are available for these much needed repairs, upgrades and safety issues. We believe, however, there is a workable solution:
a one-time $100 assessment per LTVPOA dues paying membership.
We urge that you look closely at the attached list of needs. Final budgeting numbers for these projects are currently being evaluated. The dollars assigned in our list are our best estimates, and we encourage your contacting us separately or collectively to discuss any of them or their related costs.
Lake Tansi needs your vote of Yes for this one-time assessment.
Request for Approval
One-Time $100 Assessment per LTV POA dues paying membership
Pertinent additional information:
LTV POA is committed to the continuation of a “Five-Year Financial Plan” that will reduce our debt by one million dollars over those five years. This plan is necessary and will successfully deliver us operationally from what have been several years of economic uncertainty. Over the next 4 years, the execution of this plan leaves very little for needed additions and amenity improvements.
Any assessment must be approved by a vote of the membership.
The proposed assessment will be offered for vote along with this year’s annual ballot for board and committee candidates.
The requested assessment is projected to generate $550,000 to $600,000.
The total estimated cost for proposed projects is $586,300.
If the proposed assessment is approved, all dollars received under this assessment will be held in a separate Special Project checking account and assigned exclusively for the completion of these projects alone. The account will not be mingled with or assigned to fund operational expenses or debt reduction.
Members would be billed $100 per dues paying membership.
Members who pay one POA set of dues would be assessed $100.
Members who pay two POA sets of dues would be assessed $200.
Members who pay three and a half POA sets of dues would be assessed $350.
Monthly installments for the assessment will be available.
We invite any donations.

Fox captivates LTV Association
The Lake Tansi Village Association held its monthly dinner meeting at the Thunderbird Recreation Center on Jan. 21. There was a wonderful and enthusiastic crowd turnout despite the icy conditions. The pot luck style dinner and desserts were, as usual, the envy of the county as the table was heavy-laden with a delicious smorgasbord. The T-Bird’s dining tables were decorated with snowmen, snow globes and winter figurines serving as the centerpieces, adding to the ambience of the association’s winter dinner.
