Spring is here! Folks are starting to get their yards in shape. Among my activities is actually re-sodding a couple of pesky areas in my yard. Ted has sent out notices for the yards. The neighborhood is coming along nicely with very positive responses to Ted’s management of such things as covenant enforcement. If you see anything amiss in the neighborhood along these lines, feel free to contact Ted. You’re always welcome to contact any of the board members.
April 1 is our due date for annual dues. Compliance has been great, so thank you very much for your cooperation. If you happened to be missed, contact Ted or one of the board members. Original notifications went out the first part of March via email for those we have email addresses and letters for those we do not have email. A follow up letter was sent out toward the first of April as a reminder.
We continue to enhance the neighborhood. Since the closing of the pool, we have had it resurfaced. I think you will really like the results with the new pebble surface that should reduce the irritations on the bottom of feet. It really looks nice. We have also added lighting to the trees along Brannon Drive at the entrance of the subdivision. These new LED lights really add to the appearance as you enter Brannon Estates. We are planning a pool party and BBQ to celebrate Spring with the opening of the pool. Don’t forget that we have WiFi in the clubhouse and pool area for those that would like to “be connected”. A street light has been added on Brannon Drive in between Libby and Addie. We have more improvements on the board for this year, such as looking into repair of the tennis court gate, potentially with a keypad similar to the one at the pool area gate.
Our regular HOA Board meetings are the third Thursday of the month at 7PM, as posted on the calendar on our website. (Everyone should have a login to the website.) We do sometimes change a particular meeting, as we did for our December meeting right after the annual meeting. If you do have an interest in attending a board meeting, check with me or one of the board members as we sometimes change the meeting date as we get closer to accommodate individual schedules or deal with pressing issues.
Please be sensitive to the covenants of the neighborhood. We now have Ted on behalf of his management company making inspections in our neighborhood bi-weekly. Our original thought was that a management company could address this onerous task in a professional, detached and objective manner. Ted is doing a very professional job in making this happen. Remember that the covenants were put in place at the inception of Brannon Estates to assist in maintaining the neighborhood in a manner that benefits all of us.
I would also encourage everyone to be aware of what is going on in the neighborhood. I’m not aware of any recent reports. Keep in touch with the neighbors right around you and their schedules so that if any suspicious activity happens, it can be investigated. We are fortunate in that we don’t see much of this happening, but don’t hesitate to call 911 if you feel the situation warrants it.
