Managers Update To The Community- June 3415 Bulletin
CONTINUE TO READ UPDATES ONLINE AT: RADBURN.ORG - We invite all residents to log on to Radburn.org at your earliest convenience to create an account. You will find at Radburn.org any current issues that the Association wants to update you about, as well as important Association documents, etc.
We are at the very beginning of this very large project. It is necessary and very exciting! We look forward to having an active Grange Hall use for all members and residents. We will keep you posted.
Project updates –We await the slide for the ’R’ park pool which we are hoping to have installed by Late June. We will keep you posted with timing and the pool calendar.
The Baseball field has been updated - we ask that you make sure your children do not dig in the newly laid surface.
A new committee has been formed and we would love participation! One of your fellow homeowners Rich Rebidue has started a FUNraising committee (There is no ‘d’ in FUNraising) – it is not a typo. 😊 This can be a FUN committee to be on. Bring us your ideas…We are thinking about a CRAFT Fair in September and would love to have volunteers to help set this up. Please write to Radburn1929@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer on this fun committee and we will send it to our new committee members.
Grants - We have been approved for the tunnel planning grant, and have our professionals preparing the tunnel plans. We are beginning to have open dialogue with some other professionals as far as seeking additional funding for this project once the plans are drawn up and construction grants are hopefully accepted by the NJ Historic Preservation group.
Speaking of funds – This is important for the long term sustainability for the Radburn Association. We need to have other ways to bring in revenue in perpetuity to maintain the ongoing physical properties for the entire life of the Radburn Association. You need to always maintain your property, physical structures will always need replacement as they don’t last forever. For example - a new building roof ( you have 3 common shared buildings) can only last 25-30 years, pools have certain life expectancies, the pool buildings, playgrounds, etc - have limited life expectancies. There needs to be a steady income program to add to your investments to always maintain and replace when needed. A Capital Contribution to Reserves is a necessary program for all communities with shared common interests. This will need to be presented again to the community at some point in the near future for a vote. Please be sure to vote on this important amendment to your documents when presented, so that your community will have a healthy financial program to care for your shared amenities.
Some reminders for Radburn residents:
Please be sure that you are current with your dues to use the pools this summer. If a member becomes more than 45 days delinquent or greater, your voting privileges, the right to use association amenities and common area facilities, including pool privileges will be suspended.
Please be sure to have your Real estate agent, or yourself - contact the office prior to your closing on the sale of your home so that we can be sure that the new owner gets the proper documentation they need for their closing. If there are any items on your property that were not approved, we will ask that it be removed before transfer of title to the new owners (eg: unapproved sheds, etc.).
All pets must be on leash, per Borough ordinance.
Radburn Association would like to ask homeowners to be sure to keep the fronts of their homes clear of trash and their cans stored away from the front with proper lids on containers.
Please put trash out the evening before pick up ( after 6 pm) and put it away after every pick up the next morning - your homes are close to each other so your neighbors really appreciate your cooperation to help keep your property values up and Radburn Beautiful.
How you maintain your home will affect your neighbor’s resale value and vice versa – so cooperation is appreciated!
We ask for QUIET HOURS ON SUNDAYS – We have a request for No Blowers before 8:30 AM – Thank you!
We would love if homeowners would attend the Open Board Meetings to keep current with Board activity: The next open meeting is on TUESDAY June 21, 2022
See you out and about! 😊 Janet and Management Team
