PWCA Information for Members and Residents (February 2019, Message #2)

Good afternoon to all. With the current weather situation I strongly urge you to consider carefully your travel plans today. Here are several items for you consideration:

1. NEW WEBSITE: The Board approved implementing the new website at the meeting last night. This brings us to a different framework to ease information updates and provide a base for future capabilities to better serve our community. Please take a minute to review the new website. http://www.parkwestcommunity.org

2. PERMIT PARKING PASS RENEWALS: this is a repeat item from the last update. For Resident and Non-Resident Owners. Please complete and return the form by February 28th. We are targeting a mid-April dissemination of passes. Tenants, you are NOT impacted by this update.
The letter explaining the details of the process may be found in the “FEBRUARY 2019 NEWSLETTER AND INSERTS” post.

3. ACC INSPECTION: is planned to occur on March 9th. Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time to accompany one of the inspection teams and learn some of the processes we use to help keep our community looking great.

4. SPRING TREE WORK: is underway. For those areas impacted by the no parking notices earlier this week, that work did not occur due to maintenance issues. We are currently rescheduled to have that work performed on Friday, February 22nd. Those impacted will get a letter in their door(s) tomorrow if the work is still scheduled to proceed. As a reminder, if you park a car in a no parking zone at the times specified on the notices your vehicle will be relocated and relocation fee charged to your account. This covers all parking spaces in the community (assigned and non-assigned).

5. 2019 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES: the Pool and Social Committees have refined the list of social events the Association is supporting this year. The updated list is available on the new website under the “PWCA Welcome” tab.

6. PET WASTE: a topic of conversation around our community. We discussed this matter last night and here’s a quick summary: 1 – we have produced temporary signs that may be placed at problem areas. 2 – we’ll start to include some pointers in future newsletters as we can generate the content. 3 – we discussed purchasing additional permanent signs. 4 – we may generate a letter to all owners on this subject. For now, we’re soliciting your comments on this issue via email. If you
have any thoughts on how to address the issue, please send them to one or more of the following email addresses:
environment@parkwestcommunity.org, president@parkwestcommunity.org, or
lori.randall@summitmanage.com

7. ROAD RAIDERS CLEANUP EVENTS: please consider helping us and the greater Kings Park West activities through the following. We’ll be cleaning up our land on Tapestry Drive adjacent to Roberts Road and part of the Rabbit Branch park on March 9th from 7:15AM – 8:00AM.
Additionally, there is the 2019 Friends of Royal Lake meeting this evening (February 20th), 7PM, at Laurel Ridge Elementary. Lastly, the Spring Parks and Lake cleanup at Royal Lake will occur on April 27th.

I believe that covers all the points I wanted to relay to you. Have a great day, stay safe!

Regards,

Mark

PWCA Information for Members and Residents (February 2019, Message #1)

Good afternoon to all. A couple of items for your consideration.

1. SHORT NOTICE NOTIFICATION. COMMUNITY MEETING THIS EVENING. Our District Supervisor, Mr. John Cook, will be holding a Community Information Meeting on February 12th at the Oak View Elementary School at 7:30p.m. in regards to a proposed residential development at the northeast corner of the Roberts Road/Braddock Road intersection. This is one year to the date from the first community meeting.

Per the invitation email, “In late November, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Comprehensive Plan Amendment for the 9.94-acre site which would retain a base density of 1 to 2 dwelling units per acre, but allow more intense development of this property if certain conditions are met, including consolidation of the parcels, environmentally sensitive design, and improved pedestrian connections. The developer is now proposing to rezone the property from the R-1 District to PDH-5. The proposed development would be a high-end residential community with 45 houses, centrally located community amenities, and open space. Access would be from a single entrance on Roberts Road. The applicant has proposed a tree save area and decorative screening wall along Braddock Road. An additional tree preservation area is proposed along the eastern property boundary with University Park.”

2. NEWSLETTERS: were distributed. Thank you to those who have opt’d in to receive these types of communications electronically. By doing so you saved the Association $2 for each hand delivered packet and $2 plus the cost of postage for each mailed packet. In just this information dissemination we saved more then $150. For those who haven’t opt’d in, I’ve attached a form for your consideration. UPDATE – some packets have not yet been distributed but should be in the next couple of days.

3. BOARD MEETING: will be next Tuesday, February 19th at Lord of Life.

4. PERMIT PARKING PASS RENEWALS: for resident and non-resident owners
– you received the letter and an application form in the latest packet. Please complete and return by February 28th. We are targeting a mid-April dissemination of passes. Tenants, you are NOT impacted by this update.

5. 2019 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES: the Pool and Social Committees have refined the list of social events the Association is supporting this year. The updated list will be available at the board meeting and on the website shortly thereafter.

6. SPRING TREE WORK: is around the corner. We currently anticipate work occurring in the March/April timeframe. Further information to follow.

That’s it for this evening – wanted to get the information out about this community meeting this evening if anyone is interested.

Have a great night!

Regards,

Mark
