BRETTON WOODS – CONDO IX
DEAR CONDO IX RESIDENTS,
Summer officially begins on June 21st but we have been enjoying the nice weather for some time. We welcome back Snowbirds; it is wonderful to see you again! The outdoor pool should be open by now and many outdoor activities are underway. There is something for everyone here at Bretton Woods – enjoy! We hope that all the Dads, Granddads and Great Granddads enjoy their special day this month!
SMOKE DETECTOR INSPECTIONS: We extend many thanks to all the community volunteers who conducted the mandated Town of Brookhaven semi-annual inspections last month: Annette Bluemke, Sue Conklin, Janet Keller, Cindy Kelly, Lisa Leshaw, Marilyn Maloney, Pat O’Mahoney, Cathy Ruger, Kathy Russo, Jenny Serrano, Deidre Severson and Lorraine Vitale. We also offer very special thanks to Mary Ann Russo, who chairs the inspection project.
LANDSCAPING/BEAUTIFICATION: The sprinklers were turned on in April and the completion of needed repairs/replacements extended through last month. Please submit a work order immediately if you notice an inoperable sprinkler head or the grass is turning brown so that the problem can be corrected before the grass is irrevocably damaged.
CEMENT: After many walkabouts, discussions with residents and consultation with New Look, the Board approved cement repair/remediation of areas that were identified as being in need of attention at this time. The Board knows that there are more areas that need to be done but we cannot do everything at once. Due to fiscal constraints, we must prioritize areas that need to be addressed and complete them in phases.
(Condo IX – continued…)
HOUSEKEEPING: Parking: Please remember that there are no assigned parking spots in our community. While it would be desirable to always be able to park in close proximity to one’s unit, this is not always possible due to the volume of vehicles that must be accommodated, especially during the summer months. Similarly, please be reminded any vehicle with the appropriate sticker or plates can park in any designated handicapped parking spot. In order to maximize the space available, please park your vehicle within the lines of a single parking spot. Vehicles/traffic: Please exercise caution when driving throughout the community – remember that the posted speed limit is 25 mph. During the summer months, we must be especially mindful of children playing outside and residents who are out and about enjoying the warm weather. Parents, please ensure that your children have proper protective gear and ride their bikes/skateboards safely within our community. For everyone’s safety, please STOP at the posted signs.
SAVE THE DATE: The 2nd Annual Potluck Poolside Party has been scheduled for Saturday, August 19th at 3 PM! Details will follow as we get closer to the actual date, but please mark your calendars now to reserve this date/time to join friends and neighbors for an afternoon of fun, food, and fellowship. If you would like to help with this project, please contact Pat O’Mahoney at (516) 313-2785. We need and appreciate volunteers!
