Condo IX – December 2021
Dear Condo IX Residents,
The Condo IX Board wishes all our residents safe and joyous holidays. May the spirit of the season warm your heart and home!
OH DEAR, ONCE AGAIN IT IS TIME FOR WINTER SNOW REMINDERS!
HOA Maintenance plows the roads first, then the parking plazas.
When a storm is predicted, please communicate with your neighbors to move vehicles to one section of the parking lot which will allow the HOA snowplows to clear the lot more quickly.
After cleaning off your vehicle, please move it to Skyline Drive or to an already cleared area in your parking plaza.
PLEASE DO NOT MOVE YOUR VEHICLE TO SKYLINE DRIVE UNTIL HOA HAS CLEARED THE ROAD!
Snow will be shoveled from the walkways and steps after 2” of snow has fallen and stopped. Ice melt will be applied to the walkways and steps as needed. Please have patience – it is impossible to clear every area first/at the same time.
Ice melt and sand are available in the basement storage area for your use. You may want to keep a small container of ice melt or sand by your front door and/or in your car.
Please remove doormats and newspapers, which can damage the snow blowers and delay snow removal.
Upper Lamont residents are responsible for the timely removal of snow from the balcony of their units.
Fall clean-up: Naturescape has closed down the irrigation system and will complete the final clean-up of leaves this month.
Gutter Cleaning: Weather permitting, Super Clean Machine has scheduled the gutter cleaning project for the end of this month. Details to follow.
Hose bibs: If your unit has the inside shut-off valve, please be sure to turn it off now. You should first turn off the inside valve and then open the outside spigot to let any residual water drain. You should also disconnect any exterior hoses and accessories. Hose bibs will be installed on the outside faucets later in the month.
Financials: The financial statements for the year ending September 30, 2021 have been completed by the independent accountant. Condominium IX homeowners can obtain a copy of the report at the HOA Office.
WORK ORDERS: For the most expedient response to work orders, please submit your request electronically to http://brettonwoodshoa.org/work-orders/, the HOA UpKeep system. You should receive an email acknowledgement of your work order from UpKeep. Please follow up with HOA Maintenance, which administers the UpKeep system, if you do not receive the confirmation.
PLEASE DON’T LEAVE FOOD/BIRD SEED OUTSIDE! We know you are well-intentioned, but these offerings attract deer, rodents, and vermin that may carry diseases to our community.
COMMUNITY CONCERN: Unfortunately, there have been some complaints about excessive noise within our community. By definition, condo living is within close proximity of one’s neighbors. We ask that you please respect and be considerate of your neighbors. Both the Bretton Woods governing documents and the Town of Brookhaven have requirements for noise control. To make a noise complaint or to report any other non-emergency situation requiring a police response, call (631) 852-COPS.
Let’s make Condo IX the most festive/beautiful area within Bretton Woods this year! Please decorate to the extent you would like, so we can all enjoy/appreciate your efforts as we walk or drive through our community.
