NO ... KEEP Covenant requiring RELAC.
Members can revoke Covenant 15 if 2/3 of all votes cast are YES votes. As few as 69 YES votes (2/3 x 30% quorum x 343 eligible) could impact RELAC service for all 626 current customers. But if all 343 eligible homeowners vote, 229 YES votes are required to pass the referendum, and 115 NO votes are required to defeat it. In 2005, eligible homeowners cast 230 of 343 votes, 100 YES and 130 NO, to defeat that referendum.
firstname.lastname@example.org. RA mailed referendum ballots on January 5 to all eligible property owner Members of record as of December 1, 2014. Voting will end at 5:00 p.m. on January 30, 2015, and results will be announced on February 9. Online voting is available using your paper ballot username and password.
The 2015 core issue is the same as in 2005: RELAC says it will not survive RA Covenant 15 revocation. Referendum supporters disagree and want unrestricted choice. See the HCA RELAC webpage for more information.

An underground water pipe appears to be broken and bubbling up water tonight from beneath the pavement in front of 11520-26 Maple Ridge Road in Block 1. Fairfax Water dispatched a repair crew after being notified by Block 1 Member Eric Lundberg. UPDATE 1 ... Fairfax Water crews arrived, isolated the water leak, and started repairs to restore service to twelve Block 1 homes. The rest of Block 1 and all of Block 2 were not affected. UPDATE 2 ... Fairfax Water completed repairs at about 5:00 a.m. Maple Ridge Road is open for business, but may need additional follow-up pavement work.
From Blade Runners earlier today: "Temperatures will be cold today and tomorrow. We are scheduled for 1/2 to 1 inch of accumulation. We plan to take a wait and see approach with this event. As the morning progresses we will have an idea as to the need for ice control." UPDATE 1 ... "Storm track has changed. We plan to service properties for roads ... ." HCA received at least 4 1/2 inches of snow, much more than originally predicted.
