Manager’s Update To The Community
Managers Update To The Community- January 8, 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.
Please log in to the members section under ‘General Documents’ see the revision of The ADR Policy (Alternative Dispute Resolution) that the Board is looking to update. This will be discussed at the next Open Meeting.
Happy New Year! We look forward to continue all the good work in this New Year by developing programs for all age groups to participate in. Please keep your eyes open as we plan events for adults only (eg: movies in the grange, possible lunch and learn events, adult swim lessons and CPR classes, etc.) in addition to the programs for children and families. We are in the process of building up our volunteers for the various social events – reach out to Rene Testa Adams if you have an interest in a social committee, or an idea. We also have our Grounds committee meeting monthly to review park improvements as well. We will soon be reaching out as we look to develop additional committees where homeowners can be involved – to be continued….
We expect to begin some spring time projects in the parks. As we finalize the projects, we will keep you informed.
Management has created a location on the website to report park light outages for PSEG as well as get updates on what lights have been reported (phone calls to the office work as well – please provide lamp numbers).
As an FYI – we have called in the downed light several weeks ago (and followed up) in the ‘A’ park and have a statement that it is assigned to a PSEG engineer to be repaired within the next 2 weeks. We appreciate homeowners calling PSEG from your end in addition to the Association, so that PSEG will hear from several sources about a light issue to get them to respond. We have a contact in PSEG that we met with – so we hope the assistance will expedite these issues.
There have been several reports of large amounts of food being left in the parks (cheese and bacon). We ask that food not be left in the parks, as it will attract rodents – this was a big issue this past summer while all the utility work was being done in Fair Lawn.
Dogs (our furry friends) – We have been having large amounts of doggie bags being taken. We continue to check the stations every weekday morning and refill. We have installed 500 bags at a time – 3 times a week, which appears to be a lot of bags being used. There may be a lot of dogs in the parks, or perhaps people taking more than necessary. We ask for cooperation to take only what is needed at each time. Thank you! On another note, Fair Lawn has a Borough Ordinance (62-10 Regulation of Dogs) relating to the necessity that all dogs must be on leash in public areas. We ask that you comply with the ordinance. There are times where people are afraid of loose dogs so we appreciate your cooperation.
We have had rental activity with the clubroom and gym rentals for homeowners, for special events – birthday party, etc. We are happy to be able to provide this amenity to homeowners. Please feel free to reach out to me or Rene via e-mail for information and a clubhouse rental agreement to review.

‘SUMMER Time and the livin is easy’ – we are thinking in advance. We have been working on the summer programs since playgroup ended. Here are some possible open positions that we may be looking for if you would like to recommend anyone ; Arts and crafts supervisor, camp counselors and supervisors. Please reach out to the office with any questions. We will also be sending out information about signing up for playgroup coming very soon. We will provide designated dates for open sessions to learn about the new online registration process for camp and counselors, etc. Stay tuned…
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, as well as pertinent Radburn Association information. We also would like to be able to invite new owners to a welcome tea to meet their neighbors, as well as provide a tour of the parks if weather is cooperative. We do have a park tour group of volunteers, if anyone would like to join.
Radburn Association would like to ask homeowners to be sure to keep the fronts of their homes clear of trash. The borough asks that you put out the evening before and put away after every pick up - your homes are close to each other so your neighbors really appreciate your cooperation to help keep your property values up and Radburn Beautiful.
Any exterior modifications must be submitted with an architectural application to the office – BEFORE you begin any projects. This includes tree removals. We also need to know that the Borough permits are being applied for as well - where required. Thank you!
We are hosting a Welcome Tea for New Residents in Radburn Association on Sunday January 26th @ 2:00 pm – please contact the office with your RSVP.
We would love if homeowners would come to the Open Board Meetings (The first meeting for 2020 is on January 13th @ 7:30 pm). Check out the freshly painted clubroom. We do want to keep you all informed and welcome questions. 28th
See you out and about! 😊
