·         Acting President John Owen and the Board of Trustees met to discuss potential changes to the protective covenants for the Olympia Estates Subdivision.

The Board feels that 7 combined animals would be appropriate for lots 2.75 acres or larger.  For lots 1.5 acres and smaller, only 2 head of horses would be allowable. Lots cannot be combined to fence.  Each lot must be fenced separately. Lots with animals must have some kind of fencing.
