The road replacement project is finished. The week of Oct 11th all parking spaces were striped and all handicap spaces were all clearly marked.
Winter has come early this year so make sure to winterize your unit if you will be gone over the colder months. Turn off and drain your water heater and keep the heat on to 55 to keep pipes from freezing. We will not be using ice melt this year as it has been damaging the rails on the decking.
If you or a resident uses the fireplace in your unit, please have it cleaned once a year and submit cleaning documents to the main office. Please never burn trash in a fireplace.
If your unit is a rental and you have not added a sewer rider to your policy and your unit suffers damage from a sewer backup Per section 9 of the rules and regs of The Pines (you can download on the front page of this webpage) You are responsible for the deductible of the association if an insurance claim is made.. (Up to $25,000.00)
Call your ins company and make sure this rider is on your policy.
All Owners are required to have a copy of their condo ins on file with the office. If you have not done so please send that in.
Please ask all renters to carry renters insurance and send this information to the main office as well.
The pond still has a leak somewhere and is losing water. The board is working to find the best solution to this issue.
Please do not toss food out for animals. We live in the forest and by tossing food out for squirrel's it attracts other animals such as bears and javelin's. This is a danger to the community.
All owners are responsible for removing snow off decks in the winter. If you are not up here during this time please have a service come and remove the snow. The Pines staff will clear roads , walkways and steps but owners clear the decks. This helps keep the wood and railing from rotting and rusting.
As of Sept 2018 No BBQs are allowed on the decks per our new inc policy. There is a BBQ at the clubhouse
We have placed 4 new dog poo stations and 4 new smoking stations around the property. We encourage all residents who smoke to do so near one of the smoking stations and not on the decking areas.
The poo stations are fitted with pick up baggies to make clean up a breeze.
