IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE KONA PALISADES ESTATES COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION TO OWNERS REGARDING THE CONTINUATION OF THE
ANNUAL MEETING OF MARCH 31, 2020
Date: March 23, 2020 To: Owners of Kona Palisades
From: Board of Directors
Re: Intent to Continue Annual Meeting to Future Date Due to COVID‐19 Pandemic
The health and well-being of all the owners is the Board’s highest
priority. With that in mind, due to the COVID19 pandemic and the
Hawaii Department of Health recommendation, your Board
of Directors (“Board”) intends to seek owners’ approval to continue
the Annual Meeting to a future date. As it is unlikely the pandemic will
be resolved by the deadlines imposed in our
Association’s governing documents, adjourning of the Annual Meeting
to a future date is permissible, but must be approved at the
March 31, 2020 Annual Meeting.
Your Board, in consultation with the Association’s Manager, Attorney, and Parliamentarian, has determined that in accordance with our
Association’s governing documents and Hawaii law, that the Association should adopt a motion at the meeting to adjourn the scheduled
March 31, 2020 Annual Meeting to a future date. Two directors will be present at the meeting start time via conference call, they will call the meeting to order and continue the annual meeting
to another date, time, and place. A quorum is not needed for this
All previously submitted proxies timely received by the Association will
remain valid for the adjourned meeting when it is reconvened.
Owners with any further questions regarding this matter may contact
Karin Villaverde of Associa Hawaii who may be reached via
e‐mail: or by calling (808) 837‐5293.
Finally, pursuant to public health recommendations announced by the
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Hawaii Department of
Health, the Board is discouraging owners from attending the March 31, 2020 Annual Meeting in person, as it is not anticipated any business will be conducted other than to continue the meeting and approve the tax rollover resolution. If necessary, the Board will vote all
proxies to continue the meeting and approve the tax rollover resolution.
This will allow owners to minimize the risk to everyone’s health and
attend in person at a later date to conduct the Association’s business.
All owners will be sent written notice advising as to the date and time for reconvening of the adjourned Annual Meeting at least fourteen (14)
days prior to the new meeting date. The annual meeting business will take place at the continued annual meeting.
Thank you for your understanding and support of our association during this difficult time.

The Board had already contracted with Associa Hawaii to be the Property Management Firm. Karin Villaverde will be the Community Manager. Associa Hawaii has played a key role in helping to uncover failures in the past to follow correct legal procedures and properly record actions of the Association. They were also very helpful in getting information out about the Annual meeting that had to be reconvened twice. We will have a whole team working for the Association instead of just one. It should make things go a lot smoother in the future.
President Fine encouraged the owners by saying "This is not the end of the process but it is the beginning. We want to make changes. You have wanted changes. This is the beginning of making changes to make Palisades a better place to live."
He also called for volunteers who want to help in the change process. We need the everyone involved in helping to improve Palisades.
Karin encouraged people to call her at 837-5293 or send an email to if you have any questions, concerns or good ideas. She also wrote "Please await future mailings and communications with more details on our services and what to expect in our new working relationship.
If you have not provided us with your email address, please do so immediately. We can save money and time by sending the newsletter out by email, instead of USPS. Click here to send your email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Mahalo
