Manager’s Corner – October 2020

Fall Has Arrived: If you are like me, you are enjoying the cooler temperatures and looking forward to getting outside more to enjoy the new season.  I would like to share some updates from the “Manager’s Corner” regarding happenings in your community.

Pool Area Improvements:  I’m sure by now you have noticed the work undertaken a few months back to push out the fence around the pool and incorporate some plantings in the pool area.  This has been met with enthusiasm by many of my regular pool goers.  If you haven’t had a chance to stop in and check it out, you really should do so – it’s lovely!  There has been discussion about adding more furnishings to the pool area this season so stay tuned for more on this.

Virtual Board Meeting October 28: We have not held a regular Board of Directors meeting since February (March was the cancelled annual meeting and April was postponed due to coronavirus), and will continue to hold our Board of Directors meetings using the Zoom application.  Homeowners are invited to attend virtually by installing the Zoom app on their computer or smart phone and then going to the Covered Bridge Estates web portal on May 27 at 7:00pm to enter the meeting from the portal tab “Account Information.” If you haven’t done so already, you will need to sign up for your web portal account and password. For more on this please check out this post.  This month’s meeting will adopt the 2021 operating budget, so you will want to “tune in” for that.

Improved Homeowner Grounds: I am quite pleased to see a big improvement in homeowners keeping their yards and sidewalks trimmed.  We went through a time during the growing season where some of the properties were looking a bit rough – which reflects poorly on our overall community “curb appeal.”  Keep up the good work!

Help Us to Keep Our Community Safe for Our Walkers:  Please remember that you are responsible for trimming your shrubs, tree branches, and lawns around any of our sidewalks.  The Board of Directors approved a resolution in November 2018 that requires sidewalks be trimmed with an 8′ clearance overhead and plantings should not encroach on the sidewalk (see the details of the resolution here).  I appreciate all of you for doing your part to make it safe to walk our sidewalks.

November 7 Yard Sale: Despite the disruption of COVID-19 in our world, we will still be holding the Community Yard Sale on November 7.  No need to register or sign up to participate.
