Charbonneau is our Oregon Planned
Community. The golf course is integral
to the success and livability of our
community. Both CGC and CCC are
working toward an agreement that will
bring the golf course and the water

everyone’s concerns and gather input
from the community.

The board and staff continue to be
available to answer any questions

Chat on Nov. 22 where board members
explained how and why the dues

increases and the value of keeping our
reserves fully funded. Our HOA attorney
provides guidance on these and other
issues in line with our CC&R’s, by-laws,
and the Oregon Planned Community Act.
Common vision of CCC and CGC
We expect a proposal from the golf
course very soon. At that time, we will
work to mitigate any of our concerns and
return it to CGC and their shareholders
for their formal approval and
resubmission to CCC. When it comes
back to our board, it will then be
presented to the entire HOA for input and
