Manager's Report June 2021 - By Pamela McFarland
Summer has arrived and along with it the 90-degree temperatures and humidity.
The Board of Directors voted to open recreational areas to guest. Guests have to sign a waiver that is available at the office. If residents have guest coming to visit their unit, it is the responsibility of the resident to see that their guest have and sign the waiver. These waivers are available at the office during normal office hours. The restrictions to all the common areas will be found in this issue of the banner. Please read through them and pull it out of the issue or print for future reference.
Hurricane season begins this month. If the park is under a mandatory evacuation order, the clubhouse will be locked and unavailable to residents. We strongly encourage all summer residents to plan ahead and make arrangements for a safe place to go in preparation of hurricanes.
As of June 1st, this rule applies: All residents who will be away for more than 7 days during official hurricane season (June 1st to November 30th) must stow away all outdoor objects prior to leaving. This includes, but not limited to flowerpots, grills, decorative statues, outdoor furniture, garbage cans, bicycles, and rain barrels if not stored properly or anchored permanently all such items will be removed. If an expense is incurred, it will be charged to the owner. Summer residents need to make sure all these items can be put away prior to evacuating the park.
Water shut off is mandatory when you leave also. If the Association needs to shut off your water, they are not responsible for any damage like the hot water heater.
Trash is picked up Tuesday and Friday, during the summer the time your trash is picked up may vary. Please use clear bags for yard trash so that yard trash does not mistakenly get placed in the compactor. And please limit all trash bags to 40 pounds.
The hours for Gate Street gate to be open are 7a.m. to 6 p.m. The other two gates will be closed 24/7. You may still exit the park through these gates, and they do not require a remote, but you will not be able to get in them at all. As of April 25, 2021 there is a new rule that states: UNIVERSAL REMOTE USAGE, ENTERING OR EXITING ANY GATE IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
Summer projects will begin this month. There are no major projects this summer except for the renovation of the paddle wheel area. The Board will be deciding about this area soon. The projects are mostly painting and general maintenance items.
We look forward to the summer showers that will increase our water table. Until then, please continue to do your part to conserve water. Please be sure to water only on your day. Sprinklers and soaker hoses are not allowed with the only exception being lawns with new sod that have previously contacted me for approval. All watering must be done by hand.
RULE REMINDER: Guests: 2. Any guest occupying a unit in the owner’s absence must register at the office. The resident is responsible for acquainting their guest with Park rules and regulations.
