President's Corner

Good Morning and Evening Everyone,

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and fall. I just wanted to touch base on a couple things before we meet for our Fall Homeowners meeting this coming Tuesday, 10 December 2019 at 7 pm. I'll start by saying that this past summer we had some major upgrades performed at the pool. First, we all know that the pool opened up one weekend late. This was discussed as a possibility at our April meeting and, of course, Murphy's Law came to fruition and our pool pump broke down. The great thing was that our Pool Manager, Mr. Trae White, and our HOA Vice President, Mr. Greg Womble, both jumped into action, attacked the problem, and had it corrected with-in a couple days. A HUGE thank-you to you both of these gentlemen!

To change course a bit, I hope for a solid turnout at our upcoming Homeowners meeting where we will discuss the big changes to the pool that you will be able to enjoy this coming season along with some Community events that are being planned. We have a lot to cover as per the Agenda and, of course, through the Open Forum. I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.

Covenants Corner

Having always taken the common sense approach to issuing correction citations here in Summerlake, I fully understand the lack of that to issue citations for house washing in the dead of winter. That being said, we have a lot of homes here in Summerlake in dire need of power washing to remove mildew and fungus.

This is your pre-notice. During the first week of April, I will begin issuing citations for outside house cleaning. As home owners and renters, you can see the condition of your home's siding. Since we do have an abundance of nice weather days here in Virginia, please take the opportunity to jump on some of these outdoor tasks before then.

Please - when you see this notice - call your neighbors attention to it as well so we get a good spread around the neighborhood.

Looking forward to a beautiful spring here in Summerlake.
