Finishing The Community
Posted on Wednesday, October 22 @ 20:46:41 (2 reads)
Announcements We want to bring you up to date on two important items: Concrete repairs and the gate.

You have probably noticed white paint markings on our sidewalks and curbs. These markings designate the areas that will be repaired or replaced, and are an integral part of the concrete repair process. The repair process is expected to start within two weeks and should take about a week.

There are several important points to note. First, different type of markings were used for different types of fixes. Second, the markings can be thought of as analogous to an agreement between the developer and the Neighborhood Board. The developer agrees to make the marked repairs, each of which has been documented with a photograph. This leads to an important third point: The workers are not authorized to make any repairs of concrete that has not been, please do not ask them to do so.

There is a related item: The developer has no obligation to repair the surface damage to the concrete that occurred last winter, which explains why these areas are not marked. As was discussed at the September Annual Meeting, the NB will be dealing with this next year.

We have also started the preliminary work regarding the installation of the gate. It is too early to determine if it can be installed before the winter weather arrives.

Please remember one other important point: Both our community and The Enclaves were sold as a "gated community." The gate WILL BE installed, so please do not suggest otherwise. Once installed, we can change the hours of operation to optimize the value of the gate.

We will keep you informed regarding developments on both the concrete repairs and the gate.

Neighborhood Board Bi-Weekly Report: 10/5/14
Posted on Monday, October 06 @ 15:27:26 (6 reads)
Announcements Items of note from your Neighborhood Board:

LANDSCAPE NEWS: There are several landscape notes this week. First, Chapel Valley will NOT be cutting the grass on October 30 and November 13. This lets us space out the final cuttings in our contract so the community looks its best for Thanksgiving. Second, weather permitting, Chapel Valley will start the fall pruning on the week of October 27th. Finally, again with the weather permitting, Naturalawn will be in the community to do the year's final fertilizing next Friday, October 10.

TRAFFIC SAFETY: We have selected a vendor to install the "STOP bars" on our roads. The installation of the STOP bars and new STOP signs has not yet been scheduled. We will give you some advance notice before the work is performed.

POOL: The pool is now closed for the season. The pavilion is still available for use. Please be aware that the gate to the pool is now locked so there is no access to the rest rooms in the pool house. We thank all owners for their cooperation during this pool season. Special thanks go to Bob Sheesley and Gary Graham for their continuing efforts in keeping our pool operating at a high level.

OUR AMERICAN FLAG: You may have noticed that our flag is looking a little worn. We want to thank Rick Carberry for donating a new flag, which we will install. It is most appropriate that we proudly fly our flag on the 200th anniversary of "The Star Spangled Banner,"

TENNIS: Charlie Karr has researched the most cost effective way to fix the crank on the pickle ball/tennis court net. We will be ordering the parts and Charlie has offered to install them.

Bocce Ball Update: 9/27/14
Posted on Saturday, September 27 @ 22:05:22 (5 reads)
Announcements To All Owners At The Courtyards At Waverly Woods East:

The Neighborhood Board recently solicited your input on proposed bocce enhancements.

We appreciate the feedback we received from almost 40 owners. Not surprisingly, owners who played bocce ball supported both the storage container and additional seating. They mentioned the fact that the storage container will improve community aesthetics because we could move the bocce equipment currently stored exposed in the tennis court into the container. The container will also make it easier to maintain the court, which will help us contain future court maintenance costs.

A few owners who don't play bocce supported the storage container. Even fewer supported the seating. Most opposed both. Their logic included the cost involved and the possibility that the storage container could harm the aesthetics of the area. Finally, several people commented that we have already spent money on bocce this year, and felt that we didn't need to spend more at this time. The game, while popular, is played by only about 15% of owners.

The Neighborhood Board has regrouped to consider the input. Our decisions are as follows:

-- We approve the storage container, and authorize the Bocce Committee to have it installed ASAP. Please rest assured that the landscaping will be as recommended and installed by landscape professionals. Our logic is that the storage container will reduce future maintenance costs and "pay for itself" over time. It also lets us remove free standing bocce equipment from inside the tennis court, which will improve both safety and aesthetics.

-- We will not approve $2,000 for a new bench. That's a lot of money to seat three or four people.

-- We will approve the $450 to relocate one of the benches currently facing the tennis court on the requirement that the contractor will guarantee (in writing) the bench will be relocated without compromising its strength and stability. If the bench is damaged, the contractor will be responsible for replacing it with an identical bench. If the contractor will not provide this written guarantee, we will not relocate the bench.

Again, we thank you for your input. We also thank the Bocce Committee for their hard work on this project.

Highlights from Thursday Night\'s Annual Meeting, 9/18/14
Posted on Friday, September 19 @ 22:07:40 (9 reads)
Announcements THANKS!: We had record attendance and the largest number of votes in the community's brief history. Thanks to all of you who participated and/or voted.

CONGRATULATIONS: Bill Rowe and Bob Sheesley were re-elected to the Neighborhood Board. We congratulate them and thank them for their continued service to our community.

COMMUNITY PLAN: The NB is about to start a three year plan for the community. It will include the development of a list of possible community enhancements, a process to prioritize the enhancements, and a plan for implementation. In the near future, we will address the first step of the process, the gathering of possible enhancements. At that time, you will be given many more details and an opportunity to let the Neighborhood Board know of your ideas for potential future enhancements.

FINANCIAL UPDATE: We are fully reserved. Despite the extraordinary expenses in the first quarter (largely for unbudgeted snow removal and the damage at the Community Center), our Year-To-Date Revenues slightly exceed our Year-To-Date Expenditures. In other words, we are "living within our budget." Another major part of our solid finances relate to the fact that we no longer believe we will be assessed almost $25,000 for the Impervious Surface Tax. We have been accruing for this tax every month, so not having to pay it is a significant reason our Cash Flow and Finances have withstood a number of unbudgeted expenses. NOTE THAT THIS DOES NOT MEAN WE HAVE AN EXTRA $25,000 TO SPEND HOWEVER WE PLEASE. Not having to pay a $25,000 expense simply improves our current overall financial position as well as the outlook for the rest of the year.

PUTTING IT ALL IN CONTEXT: The Board understands that many owners' primary concern is keeping dues to a minimum. And, we respect that position. The NB will provide every opportunity for people to express their opinion...whether it is to support new initiatives...or to do no enhancements in order to keep the dues low. The Board Members do not advocate any particular position on this (or any) issue: OUR ROLE IS TO REPRESENT THE WISHES OF ALL 321 OWNERS. Trying to blend the often differing perspectives of so many people is obviously a challenge. The plan that is ultimately developed will represent the wishes of all owners to the best of the Board's ability.

BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER: The 2015 budget process has just started. The NB has already received requests for specific expenditures. We will have the PRELIMINARY budget to you in 4 to 6 weeks. In November, at the next Open Meeting, all owners will have an opportunity to comment on the budget before the NB votes on it. It is far too early to have an idea of the 2015 dues. What we can say is that the Board will do everything in our power to keep the dues as low as possible while complying with all regulations, providing a safe environment, and representing the wishes of all 321 owners.

There were many other areas of discussion, including many great questions from the floor. We will let you know when the minutes are posted to the web site, which will provide more details from the meeting. Once posted, we encourage you to read the minutes. Thanks again for your interest and participation.
