Summer Pruning: The above average Spring rain has made bushes and shrubs throughout the community bloom and grow quite rapidly. The Summer pruning may begin sooner than anticipated so everything does not become too over grown. Some pruning of bushes and shrubs may have to be severe to keep them within growth limits and not interfere and come in contact with the exteriors of townhomes, stoops, steps, downspouts or front railings. Pruning will progress as weather conditions allow.
Landscaping: Some landscaping improvements have been completed removing old juniper bushes that were half dead and railroad tie walls that needed replacement. Other areas plan to be improved in the same manner. As a reminder, now that the warmer temperatures have arrived, homeowners and residents may not put down mulch with personal plantings due to its nature for termite attraction and breeding. Personal plantings are limited to the footprint of each townhome lot. No planting of flowers, shrubs, or trees, should occur in the Common Area or they will be subject to be removed. Always submit an Architectural Request before planting and a Maintenance Agreement may be required.
Front Railings: The front railing project has resumed now that the lingering cool early Spring temperatures and wet weather have finally subsided. It is anticipated the project may be 75% complete by year's end. The conditions of the remaining front railings on all units continue to be reprioritized. The progression of the project continues to be dependent on weather conditions, and primarily, as finances allow.
Parking: Each unit is allocated two assigned parking spaces. Residents or guests parked in assigned spaces of others, on grass, in designated illegal areas, on any main Homeplace street or areas which would cause partial blocking of streets, or driveways, may be subject to towing at the expense of the car owner. Residents should not park in Visitor spaces on a regular or daily basis as they are for visitors.
Sanitation: Trash and recycle containers still continue to remain in front of units days after pickup. Should trash and recycle containers continue to remain in front of the units homeowners will be notified and subject to fines. It is expected every week to have all trash and recycle containers returned to the rear of the unit, not the side of the unit, by 7pm, the day of pickup. Trash and recycle containers are to be stored upright in an orderly fashion with lids secured at all times to prevent attraction of wild or stray animals. Where space is available, trash and recycle containers may be placed underneath rear decks.
Rear Decks: Rear decks, including the area underneath, and on the ground adjacent to the entire rear deck structure, are not to be used for outside storage. All items should be stored in the utility closet on the rear deck or inside the townhome.
Tree Trimming: Community wide trimming of trees was completed in March with stump grinding and removal to be completed soon. Some trees were subject for complete removal so they no longer touched the roofs and the exterior sides of townhomes.
Termite Inspection: The annual termite inspection around all townhomes and Common Area throughout the community was completed the middle of March. There were no reported areas of concern found on the property.
Reminders: The Board of Directors usually meet on the fourth Tuesday every other month. All homeowners who wish to discuss a community concern at one of the scheduled Board meetings are asked to please contact the management company one week in advance to be added to the agenda. As always, please refer to the guidelines that are addressed most often regarding Homeplace at Adams Farm for non-compliance located under the Community Guidelines > General tab.
