Roads and Parking Plazas – At the time of this writing, the repaving project is well under way. Once the roads are completed, our parking plazas and lots will be repaved and striped. The work may already be completed by the time you read this. If not, please be patient and listen to all blast calls regarding which plazas and lots are being done on which days. Your car will be towed if it is in the way of the work.

Thanks to the Board’s diligence in adding money to our reserve fund and carefully managing our expenses over the last few years, we are happy to announce the full cost of the paving project will be paid from the reserves. There will be NO assessment to our homeowners.

Open Meeting – There will be an open meeting for Condo VII residents on Thursday, June 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts room. We hope to see you there.

Noise Complaints – The walls between units are thin and noise travels easily. The By-Laws prohibit the playing of music between 12 midnight and 7:00 a.m. or the playing of musical instruments between 10:00 p.m. and the following 9:00 a.m. We have received several complaints regarding this so please be considerate of your neighbors and turn the music off.

Smoke – Second hand smoke is a nuisance and a serious health risk. The By-Laws state that homeowners shall not cause or permit any unusual or objectionable noise or odors to be produced upon or emanate from their units.
We live in multiple dwelling buildings and we share the air with our neighbors. Smoke passes from one unit to another through the medicine cabinets, outlets, vents, and along the plumbing pipes. Smoking of any substance indoors poses a significant health risk not only to those in a smoker’s home, but also to the neighboring units.

Suffolk County law prohibits smoking in common areas of multiple dwelling buildings and within 50 feet of a multiple dwelling building.

Red Dragon Organics sprayed for ticks in May. The application was sprayed on all vegetation around each unit including brush, tall grasses, lawns, and all mulched areas. This is an organic solution that is not harmful to humans or other animals/insects. However, be aware that spraying is not always 100% effective so you should still take the time to check yourself and family members for ticks. This is also another reason to stay off the grass and out of the wooded areas.

Thank you to our volunteers for once again getting the smoke alarms tested. It’s an important job and we’re grateful for your assistance.

Basements – the basements will be open this month on Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 25th from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

 Barbecues must be kept 10 feet from siding and NO barbecues are allowed on Upper Lamont balconies.
 Tiki torches and fireworks are not permitted anywhere in Bretton Woods.
 Vehicle repairs and car washing are prohibited in the parking plazas and on the streets. The car wash hoses on Daryl Drive are available for your use.

Happy Summer!!!!!
