Managers Update To The Community- November 23, 2020
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 also ask that any questions be sent to: email@example.com so that you can get direct answers to your concerns.
COVID – We ask that all residents be diligent by wearing masks where necessary in public and being cognizant of washing hands, etc. as it is being noted Covid is on the rise in the Borough as well as the region.
Audit – The 2019 Audit is posted online at Radburn.org. If you would like to pick up a hard copy please call the office to set up an appointment and we will have one ready for you.
Election – Thank you to the 5 candidates who ran for the 4 open seats on the Board. We had our election on December 14,2020. The management staff was onsite along with Becker & Poliakoff. We were set up with camera’s to record the entire election process. There were (3) three year term positions, and (1) one year term position. One of the 3 year terms was for the affordable housing owners to have a representative on the Board. Art Murray, Tiffony Kidd Schindler, Arlene Brogan and Shana Cohen (AH seat) were elected.
The management staff (Janet, Anna and Rene) would like to thank the Board of Trustees and all the volunteers who work together to make Radburn Association the thriving community that it is. Those of us who work for a management company work at the request of the Board of Trustees. A manager may note issues that are observed around the community. A committee member, or a homeowner may bring something to our attention as well. We will check out the situation and provide the bids for the board to review. When it is a large contract, the Board will interview the providers (based upon the service) or review the proposals, then we will go into contract. The homeowner Board Members make the decisions, and the onsite management staff will work to ensure that projects get accomplished. Taylor management offers the back office services of financial accounting and maintenance fee processing.
Walkways - By the time you see this newsletter, many of the walkways in this partial phase 1 have been completed, along with the much needed drainage solutions and repairs. We hope to get out in the springtime to review the second half of phase 1 for the next repairs.
Upcoming projects - We await the plans for the replacement filtration system for the B pool and the Baby pool. We also plan to begin repointing the bricks at the tennis court (spring), then we will repaint the wall. We will be replacing the wood fascia along the roof for the R pool house. We hope to provide some upgrades inside of the pool houses relating to plumbing as well. These will be early spring projects.
Some reminders for Radburn members - 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.
Did you know ?? There are a few small walkways located between homes that are actually private walkways of the adjoining home. Not every homeowner is open to people walking there, so we suggest taking the larger common paths.
Radburn Crossings- A warm welcome to all the new members moving in to your homes at the Crossings. Hang in there during construction. Feel free to reach out to your managing agent Integra, or to Radburn Association if you need information on the parks and programs, etc.
Home Maintenance - Radburn Association would like to ask homeowners to be sure to keep their homes clear of trash and their cans put away after every pick up, personal items such as bicycles,etc. need to be stored inside overnight - 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 neighbors resale value and vise versa – so cooperation is appreciated! We have been sending out letters to those that need a gentle reminder, and will follow up if there is no response. We also ask that you trim any overhanging shrubs, vines, etc on the paths – this will make for easy walking and snow clearing.
Architectural Applications - Any exterior modifications must be submitted with an architectural application to the office – BEFORE you begin any projects. This includes tree removals, or if you are planning on putting any structure outside your home. We also need to know that the Borough permits are being applied for as well - where required. You can apply online at Radburn.org to expedite the process - you can upload your application and pictures - under the members page, then click Radburn Architecture. Please call the office first with any questions to be sure all would be approved. Thank you!
We would love if homeowners would come to the Open Board Meetings - The first meeting of 2021 will be on Tuesday January19th @ 7:00 pm
As the holiday season is fast approaching – we would like to take this time to wish you a Wonderful Holiday Season.
See you out and about! 😊 Janet
