March/April 2008


Our annual QC Property Owners Association Meeting was held as scheduled on March 4. A large group of homeowners attended. Stu Stenger with Stenger Company and Jim Alabach with Kronenke Group of Columbia, Mo. discussed the development of Phase VII of Quail Creek subdivision and the development of the 60 acres of commercial development which fronts out to South Campbell. Plans for a Sam's Super Center including a car wash and gas station were presented. The Super Center is to open April 2009, but there are currently no plans to develop the residential part at this time. The street coming from the new commercial and residential area will connect to Shawnee, but the road will not be connected until the residential portion is developed. Residents expressed concern that traffic from the commercial portion would be allowed to come through our subdivision. The board had previously requested that it not be allowed, but the City of Springfield overruled that request.


Board Members elected to the board were Joe Brozovich, Bill Hass, Donna Howerton, Bob Scott, and Troy Kennedy. President Hass expressed appreciation to Greg Parker for serving on the board for the past two years. Our new incoming officers are Joe Brozovich, President; Bob Scott, Vice President; Donna Howerton, Secretary-Treasurer, and Bill Hass and Troy Kennedy, Members at Large.
