Hi Shores Family
Yes, that’s our community. We have family AKA owners who we don’t see often, ones we see in the summer, some we see all year and some live here. As this is the first installment of our ShoresPC newsletter, I want to welcome all new owners!!
Beginning, I want to introduce myself. My name is Lynn Smith and my husband is Stephen, although he’s better known as ‘Doc’. We rented for at least 7 years before we purchased #35 in 1803. This will be our sixth summer as owners. I was appointed to your board to replace Bob Moser when he and Terri sold their unit. Your other board members are Chuck Saris-President, Mike Linthicum-Secretary, Ed Wallick – Finance, Julie Durbin and Mike Schroeder. Chuck’s and my positions are up for re-election/election in 2020. If you’re interested in a board position, please notify Erin Osstifin, our finance manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Covid-19! Need I say more J You may know the pool was delayed in opening and the hot tub will remain closed for the season. The pool also has floating circles trying to show people the 6’ distance they should remain from others. Towels on chairs will be placed in lost and found if abandoned for longer than 20 minutes. We are requiring no air born entry into the pool. I know, no cannon balls, can openers, etc. but hey, we’re still able to use the pool. J Some pools decided not to open for the 2020 season. All scheduled parties have been cancelled for 2020 but the bands have been rescheduled for 2021 if able.
Communication has been lacking from the board to the owners and the delay of our yearly meeting contributed to this lack of communication. We recognize that, hence the newsletter. A lot has been done on and to the property! Let’s go over just some. Entryways have been repaired, stairs painted and wood railings replaced with composite. Exterior wood on 1807 was replaced with composite. Upper balconies in 1803 and 1807 were resurfaced and wood replaced with composite. The outside of the buildings is being replaced with EIFS. A lot of these items in addition to the caps on the tops of the walls should prevent any further water intrusion. Other improvements are the brown privacy fence between Fairfield Inn and our complex, mailboxes were moved behind doors, new signs for building #s & stairwells, AC covers, complex entry “refresh”, chairs fixed, new tables around the pool area, replaced logs in the fire pits, pine bushes planted between 1801 & hotel parking lot, security lights have been fixed and turned on. The gate to the lake on the east side of the pool has been opened for access to the lake. Rocks are being redistributed from the carports to other areas of need. They are not to leave the carports bare of all rocks. Please notify Mel if you see it appears too bare. We will be getting metal roofs when it’s time and the balcony improvements will be handled by the association, overseen by the board.
Other improvements that are coming…1803 is next in line for exterior wood being replaced with composite and 1801 is next in line to have the 3rd floor balconies resurfaced and wood replaced with composite. Coming in August, we are replacing the complex entry cement so please be aware of any traffic flow changes while they are working. It will be well marked.
I hope everyone knows Mel McCord, better known as ‘Jug’. His number is 419-734-7007 and his email is email@example.com. He is our property management company and we contract him and his company to manage and maintain our facility and monitor our grounds. His team includes: Cara, Connie, Mark, Rick, Kyler and Sue. We will rarely see Mark or Sue doing parking/grounds monitoring. We need to help them do their best. Please complete the contractor/renovation form and turn it in to Mel for approval before work begins. Please also notify him prior to each renter arriving with names, arrival dates/times and departure dates/times. If you’re using a third party for your rentals, make sure they are sharing this information. This makes a smoother transition for your renter too! Renters are expected to leave the property at checkout time. If your renter has a service pet, they should be able to provide valid paperwork with the required medical signatures. Also, if you are coming and bringing more than the expected 4-8 people (depending on condo size), please let him know prior so Mel’s team is aware and there’s no question as to who the people are and should they be on our property. Mel and his team are responsible for notifying you if they need access to your condo and/or balcony prior to the need. Lastly, if you need a new key for your mailbox ($25) or a new car pass ($5 after the initial 2 per condo), please let Mel know.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing/meeting each of you at a later date!
