1. MLK DAY OF SERVICE; COMMUNITY AND RABBIT BRANCH PARK CLEANUP; REVIEW. Thank you to the people wo showed up for our community cleanup. While the weather wasn’t great we did get four from our community and about 20 from the overall Kings Park West community participating. Really appreciate you giving some of your Monday to help our community!
2. SNOW EVENT #1; REVIEW. Another thank you to all who cleaned their sidewalks and shoveled the parking area edges. With the continued cold weather that’s a really fantastic action that will pay dividends for multiple days. For this event we had one plow session and three salting activities. I do not anticipate doing anything else for our streets in response to this storm.
3. POTENTIAL SNOW EVENT, FRIDAY. This continued cold weather takes us right into another potential storm in two days. If you have not reviewed the Snow Policy for this season, I urge you to do so. Again, really appreciate all those who care for the common sidewalks and nearby fire hydrant as needed to make moving around and safety in our community a little easier for all.
4. TREE AND GROUNDS CARE WORK. Our Fall 2023 Tree Pruning activity will occur over the next couple of weeks. Contracted leaf removal for Fall 2023 is complete. For those who did not take advantage of the visits to move your leaves to common ground please clean your yards and deposit into bags for removal.
5. YARD DEBRIS COLLECTION. Any yard debris you generate now should be placed out with regular trash. Our contractor recommends placing yard debris into your trash containers to ensure the debris gets picked up during the next two months. Regular Yard Debris collection will resume on March 6, 2024.
6. BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING; TUESDAY, February 20, 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 website under ‘Meetings’, select the year (2024), then the meeting (20240220). Document #01-1 contains the information to join the meeting.
7. 2024 ANNUAL ASSESSMENT NOTICE AND ASSESSMENT TIMELINE. If you have some kind of manual payment occurring to pay your assessments – please remember to adjust your payment. We have several accounts that have paid last year’s amount and therefore still have an account balance. As presented at the Annual Meeting, the Annual Assessment for 2024 has increased to $440.00 per quarter due on the first day of each quarterly assessment period – the first quarter’s payment was due on January 1st. The 2024 Assessment Notice and the Quarterly Assessment Timeline have been mailed/emailed to you and may also be found on the website – link provided above in the Seasonal Links section.
8. COLD WEATHER PREPARATION. With the current weather this remains for one more message… Check the November newsletter for an article on this important subject. Each year there are challenges faced by homeowners – consider taking the identified steps to take to be prepared for winter and limit potential damage to your home. The PWCA snow policy is posted on the website and is linked above in the Seasonal Links section; please read and understand it before any snow emergency might be declared for the Community. If/when snow or ice storms occur all residents are requested to shovel and de-ice the sidewalks in front of your home. Help your neighbors and your community by assisting others if needed, clearing around fire hydrants, and clearing the mail boxes
9. BRADDOCK ROAD STOP SIGN AND MESSAGE BOARD, POOL PARKING LOT STOP SIGN. We are awaiting better weather to repair the stop signs and message board.
Enjoy your evening – stay warm and be careful if you walk outside with all the black ice that’s out there now that the sun is gone.
