7.  BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING; TUESDAY; JUNE 18, 2024; 7:00 PM; VIRTUAL.  The monthly board meeting will be conducted via the RingCentral virtual meeting framework. For the virtual meeting information, see the link listed above in the Permanent Links section.  Scroll down the the Meeting Materials and Minutes section, select the year (2024), then the meeting (20240618). Document #01-1 contains the information to join the meeting.

8.  RETAINING WALL REPLACEMENT AND FOOTPATH REPLACEMENT; JUNE 2024.  After months of planning, we are about to undertake the replacement of our last wood retaining wall.  This wall, located at the main storm water basin to the rear of 4827 Carriagepark Road, has been failing for several years and is in imminent need of replacement before a physical failure occurs.  The project will replace the retaining wall with a concrete wall while also replacing the existing asphalt footpath with a concrete sidewalk.  The existing railings will be modified as needed and reused.  This project will take around two weeks and the footpath will be closed to traffic during the project.  Please adhere to all signs and directions provided during the duration of the project.

9.  ASPHALT CRACK-FILL, SPECIFIC PARKING SPACE SIGNAGE, AND YELLOW AND WHITE CURB MARKING; JUNE 2024.  We will be accomplishing crack-fill of the asphalt in the drive lanes and in parking spaces where available and painting some parking spaces whose numbers have worn off or the incorrect numbers applied to the space.  We will also repaint the yellow and white curbs during this project.  Some curb spaces and parking spaces will be impacted by this work.  The specific residences and parking spaces impacted will be notified of the specifics as we near the timeframe to accomplish the work.  The crack-fill and painting project is anticipated to be less than two days of impact to you.

10.  PARK WEST PAGES, MAY 2024 EDITION.  The May 2024 edition of Park West Pages has been released – please see the website for the document.  The Communications and Hospitality Committees have some hard copies of the edition if you’d like a printed copy. 

11.  INDIVIDUAL GROUNDS CARE OFFER FROM J&J LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT, APPLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  Our grounds care contractor is again offering residences in our community the ability to have your private yards maintained.  The care options include turf care, lawn care, and leaf removal.  Please refer to the link listed above in the Seasonal Links section, just scroll down the page to the applicable information, or contact myself if you cannot access the information.

12.  GROUNDS CARE REMINDERS.  As a reminder, please keep the following items in mind during the growing season. #1 – keep your vehicle bumpers off the curb during mowing days as the crew cannot mow, edge or trim (as appropriate) when your vehicle is parked on top of the turf. #2 – For those of you who have landscaped up to the sidewalk – you are responsible to keep the sidewalk edge nearest your residence clean if the edger cannot be operated safely. #3 – Keep all items stored inside your fence / or your property for those without rear fences. See the ACC and ECC Rules for additional information.

13.  OWNER ACCOUNT PORTAL.  As I’ve had a couple of questions on this – each owner has the ability to access their account through a portal Summit Management offers.  To access the portal, please go to our website and select the ‘Living in PWCA’ tab.  Scroll down the page to the button ‘Vantaca Owner Login’.  If you have not already done so, Vantaca will prompt you to create a login.  Once you login you’ll be able to access your owner information to include the status of your account.  This also provides an avenue to pay any balances due on the account.

14.  OPEN DIRECTOR POSITIONS.  Request your consideration to place your name forward to fill our open Director positions.  We are looking for people who are invested in making a better community for all who reside here.  If you are interested please complete and submit an Application for Candidacy that may be found on our website and is listed above in the links.  The Nominating Committee will reach out to you after you complete that step.  If you have questions I’m also available to speak with you about more specifics.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week and hope to see you at the pool this weekend!
