Landscape Work
Posted on Friday, April 18 @ 08:34:14 (2 reads)
Announcements Spring is here and landscape work can begin in earnest. Here are a couple of important landscaping items for the community.

First, Chapel Valley had planned to edge the community this week. Due to the recent heavy rains, this work will be deferred until next week.

Second, we had noted earlier that we were going to do a turf and sidewalk inspection. That inspection is complete. We had planned to ask Chapel Valley to blow/sweep all debris off the sidewalks after they edged. Since they are not coming to work here until next week, the sweeping will occur at that time. Hopefully, this week's heavy rains took care of most of the debris on the sidewalks and walkways.

Third, Ashton Environmental, our snow removal vendor, will have a crew on site this Friday, the 18th. Fortunately, it is not to remove snow! The crew will be here to repair some turf damaged during the snow removal process. Ashton has worked with us to plan the areas of turf to repair, and they are on a tight schedule. Please do not interrupt their work. If you have questions, please contact the NB via the web site.

Thank you!

Message To Owners: Community Update
Posted on Wednesday, March 19 @ 13:18:51 (9 reads)
Announcements To All Owners At The Courtyards At Waverly Woods East:

Many of us wish Spring would arrive, but Mother Nature seems to have other ideas!

The Neighborhood Board would like to bring you up to date on several items.

First, work continues at the Community Center. The project should be complete in April.

The second item is the subject of snow and ice removal. Many owners have commented on the excellent work of the snow removal vendor, Ashton. A few people have expressed concern over damage to turf and sidewalks.

It has been a few years since we had a winter with significant snow and ice. We forget how difficult and physically demanding the snow removal is. Yes, the shovels and equipment used by Ashton’s workers have dug up some turf.

The damage to concrete is interesting. The NB’s first priority is the safety of our residents and visitors. Nothing…cost, concrete damage, or anything else…is more important than safety. Our attorney consistently reminds us of this. Due to the numerous occasions of ice this winter, more ice melt was used than in recent years. This particular brand of ice melt was vetted before we used it for its effectiveness, safety, and ecological impact. Despite the due diligence, there has been concrete damage.

After the snow melts, Randy Lappert (the community’s landscape coordinator), the NB, and representatives from Ashton will walk the community. We will assess the damage to turf, concrete, and anything else. A plan of action will be developed and implemented. Please do not attempt to replace or correct the damaged turf or concrete. We want the folks walking the community to see the unaltered condition of the concrete and turf.

There is a third item. A street sign at the intersection of Star Chaser and Chambers has been knocked down. Everyone assumed the snow plows did the damage. The workers from Ashton say they are not responsible, and the damage does not look like it was caused by a snow plow. Another possibility is that this sign was damaged by an owner or guest. If that is the case, we ask anyone with knowledge of this situation to come forward. This is “our” community and we are all accountable.

Thanks to all owners for their continued support throughout this challenging winter.

Community Update: 2/2/14

Announcements Dear Owner at the Courtyards At Waverly Woods East-

The NB has received several messages regarding the Community Center (CC). In addition, it seems misinformation is starting to find its way into the community. We want to provide a detailed update.

First, the NB wants to extend a huge "thanks" to Jaime Blumberg, of FREM. She had dozens of homes with frozen pipes in the many communities she manages. Despite the workload, she has worked intensely on our behalf.

While less visible, our State Farm agent, Jeff Beam, has also been a positive factor in our situation.

We are all disappointed that we have the problems at the CC. And, we are all disappointed that the restoration process is moving as slowly as it is. Please keep in mind that the insurance companies' top priority is getting displaced families back in their homes. If we were displaced from our home, we would certainly agree with this approach, so we all understand it!

The insurance adjuster was at the CC on Thursday, January 30. He has reports to complete and approvals to get. Then, he will get back to us. Assuming we agree with his analysis and the State Farm reimbursement, we can then schedule a contractor to start the work. Since we haven't started working with a contractor and really cannot do so until we hear back from State Farm, we cannot estimate when we will get back into the CC. However, we do know the work is considered extensive.

Jaime has been able to make arrangements that WWE owners can use the exercise facilities at the Waverly Woods Pool. Thanks, Jaime. Also, we thank the folks at the pool for their "goodwill gesture" towards us. Please contact Jaime (via email at jblumberg@fremllc.com) to gain temporary access. Please do this only if you intend to use the exercise facilities, which are open 24/7. As busy as Jaime is, she doesn't need to provide temporary access to people who will not utilize the facilities.

Several owners have asked why we don't make the exercise facilities at the CC available either now or while the work upstairs is underway. There are two primary reasons. First, there will be restoration in the basement. There is the possibility we would need to continually open and close the basement as the work progressed. Second, people would need to walk through the lobby to get to the basement. During work hours, there will be construction going on. After work hours, it would be tempting for people to wander around the CC. These items combine to mean it would be too difficult to manage the process and there are definite liability issues. These problems can be avoided with the use of the exercise room at the pool.

Also, several people have offered to help select new furniture, paint colors, and other finishes at the CC. While we appreciate the offers, they are premature. We need to get official word on what is being replaced before we can worry about how to spend the money. Also, we certainly can't include everyone in the process. Rest assured the NB will seek expert help before proceeding.

The NB, Jaime, and State Farm are all working together to keep the restoration process moving forward. We will keep you informed as definitive information becomes available. In the absence of communication from the NB, please understand that there is simply no specific info to provide. Please look to the NB or Jaime for information. Thank you.

Thanks again to Jaime Blumberg, Jeff Beam, the people at Waverly Woods Pool...and to you, the owners.
