    The last few months have been very difficult for many co-owners. As everything starts to open, please stay safe and healthy. Because of the shutdown, many projects were delayed but we are close to getting caught up with the many planned projects. The Board has continued to meet via an audio conference to assure that we kept track of what could be done and when. Did you notice the new sign at the back entrance? We purchased an entire new sign ...

    Greetings River Piners. A few months ago all co-owners received a ballot for voting on eight proposed changes to our Bylaws. The deadline for voting was August 13, and I regret to report that not enough ballots were submitted to allow any of the proposals to pass. So for now the Bylaws stay as they are. I’d like to thank all those co-owners who voted, and especially to thank those Board members and other co-owners who made an effort to ...

  • Paving 7/1/2020

    We are continuing the project to mill and replace with new material on various roads in the complex.  The next section, scheduled July 1st and 2nd, is Knollwood, Lancrest Court and Lone Pine Lane.  We will continue to review the condition of roads in the complex to determine the next roads to be renewed.

  • Landscaping 7/1/2020

    The entire site has now been mulched.  We do this every other year.  It certainly looks nice.  The Grounds Committee had approved several replacement trees and the replacement of a large group of diseased trees on River Pines Drive.  Check out these new trees later this summer.

  • Ice Dams –

    During the winter, we sometimes see ice dams form on some units.  The freezing and thawing weather causes this condition and it can damage the roof of your unit and cause leaks.  If you see heavy icicles building up around your gutters, give Larry Bliss 248-767-5093 or Greg 734-323-7594 a call and let them know.

Coming Events

  • River Pines Breakfast –

    Board Meetings are typically held on the 4th Tuesday of the month at the McShane office in West Bloomfield

  • Annual Meeting –

    The 2020 River Pines Annual Meeting date and location are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 health crisis.


River Pines is managed by McShane & Associates, Inc. and handles the day-to-day administration of the association. Most of your questions or concerns can be handled by contacting their office.

In a condominium association, the Board of Directors establishes the policies, sets the budget and then directs the management firm to carry them out.

Annual Meeting of the Members

The Annual Association Meeting is held in September of each year at the Farmington Hills Costick Center on 11 mile road. Prior to the meeting we will let members know how many board seats are up for election and other issues that may be considered.

Living in River Pines

“Just wanted to share our thoughts about the professional job that Pasko & Tony and their crew from American Euro Painting, Inc. are doing. They spent several days scraping the entire units, caulking, and replacing wood before ever starting to paint. They are methodical, neat,and very hard workers taking great pride in their workmanship. The quality of paint being used gives a rich appearance, especially the front door and garage.  Read more from neighbors
