An Update from the President

From Your Proud President…

May 2022

Dear Bretton Woods Community,

Thank you to those of you who attended our open HOA meeting last month. It’s always amazing to see that, in a community of over 2,500 residents, the room is never more than half full. Before I got on the HOA Board, I always attended the meetings (which used to be held monthly) so I was aware of the updates and “goings on” of my community. However, as the expression goes, “to each their own.” Our next open meeting will be next month on Tuesday, June 14th and hopefully, we will have more of an audience.

Those who attended the meeting last month were very pleased to hear the roads update. I cannot list all the specifics of what was said that night but, will provide a brief overview. Our Roads Committee was composed of HOA Board members, Kim, Jim, Joe, Maryann, and myself, along with our Administrator, Craig. The HOA has agreed to pay for the full cost of the roads through monies collected over the years from common charges and stored in reserves. As of now, the HOA is very close to paying for the entire project with money already saved. The HOA has decided to NOT touch any parking plazas at all, whether on-street or off-street. This will be left up to the individual Condo Boards and each Condo can determine if, when, and how to pay for their own parking plazas. They can repair/repave them now, in the future, or not at all. Increases in common charges or assessments from the individual Condos may be incurred in the future as a result. About 8-12 speed humps will be added community-wide, including a speed table at the pedestrian crosswalk leading to the outdoor pool. While the exact timeline for the project is yet to be determined, the HOA is prepared to go to bid within the year and is hoping to break ground late this year or early next year. The progress that has been made towards the roads project is more than any past Board has accomplished and we are very proud to have come this far.
Thank you to Craig for his hard work as well as the nine Condo Presidents for coming together in agreement.

As many of you know, many residents in Bretton Woods have recently fallen victim to thieves going through unlocked cars in the middle of the night and stealing valuables. Please be sure to lock your cars at all times.

Wishing all our mothers in Bretton Woods a very happy Mother’s Day. The unofficial start to summer begins later this month on Memorial Day, but let’s not lose sight of the true meaning of this holiday and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Please remember that there is no reason to wait until an open HOA meeting to share your complaints or concerns. If you have a question or concern, please feel free to e-mail me at any time or speak to our Administrator, who always makes himself available.

Thank you and have a great month,

Vinnie
Proud President
