Marcelo & Camilo are in the process of painting all the garage door entrances.

Proposals are being obtained for new pool furniture.

Proposals are being obtained to re-surface the pool area decking.

Proposals are being obtained for new trash chute mechanisms.

New signs for the garage area (for speed limits, etc.) are being ordered

New bulletin boards for the elevator areas are being ordered.

Re-paint the parking space lines and numbers.

Order additional bike racks.

Paint the elevator doors at each level.


Parking Reminder.

 

Please be sure that  your guests or other invitees are not parking in our homeowner parking spots. Visitor spots are clearly identified! If a visitor or another homeowner parks in an assigned homeowner’s parking space, that homeowner can call to have that vehicle towed. Please be courteous and considerate of your neighbors. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Bicycle Safety Suggestion. In a walk around the complex with our security people it was pointed out that bicycles might be better secured by a ‘locking bar’ type mechanism rather than by a ‘cable’ type lock. Thieves, apparently, simply ‘wire cut’ the cable and ride off with the bike. The U-Bolt-Type lock was said to be ‘better’ but please consult with your bicycle shop for security suggestions from your professional bike person knowledgeable in such matters.

Annual Party. Please contact your building coordinator, the Board or Ross Morgan of your interest in assisting with our annual pool party. For those who have not had the opportunity to attend, we have food, entertainment and a lot of fun so come and join us this year. We would luv to make your acquaintance!

We also have a meeting on the 26th of June to give the two new Board members an   opportunity to offer their inputs on the updated governing documents as the sitting Board has ‘crafted’ to date from the templates provided to us by the   Association’s attorneys.   Once these last stages of Board inputs are incorporated into the draft documents we intend to the following …
