We had our monthly meeting Tuesday, February 11, at the clubhouse, and it was quite a meeting, but we accomplished a lot.

Work on our iron gates began this week.  This work will be a process, as a new gate has to be manufactured to replace the bent one on the exit side.  This will take a couple of weeks before the installation of new motors, and calibration of the gates and arms.  Please bear with us; eventually it will get done.  Meanwhile the arms and cameras are working, and incidents with the arms and difficulties with gate decals are becoming fewer and fewer.

Henry Ortland, our Field Manager, has become very proactive in reviewing the cameras at his home and calling residents when he sees someone had difficulty getting in.  These incidents are usually on the guest side. 

The sidewalk adjacent to the gatehouse has taken quite a beating, to the point where it has become dangerous.  We have hired a contractor to replace the entire sidewalk.  While this work is being done, we also contracted for a handicap access to the gatehouse.    This work will begin in approximately 2 weeks.

During the last couple of meetings, we have been discussing the condition of our roads.  We had our  District Engineer, John Foley, examine them, and he attended our meeting Tuesday to bring us up to date on the options for repairing our roads.  We are in the early stages of determining what type of resurfacing best suits the needs of the community.   

Our next meeting will be held at 5pm, March 10, at the Back Bay Grille.  I hope to see you there.
