Recent events have reminded us that we are not immune to water damage caused by a major weather event such as last Monday's (5.12.2014) torrential rains. With widespread flooding in Silver Valley, Munroe Falls, Stow, and other surrounding areas, local governments and your own Board are assessing our options.
One solution is to start planning ahead now for future severe weather with an insurance plan to pay for flood damage to your interior and personal belongings.
John's Tree Service has been chosen to replant trees on Ridge Side Court and Lake Terrace, filling gaps where several trees were removed earlier. John did the tree trimming last year in a professional manner, and has consistently provided us with quality service at affordable prices. Trees will not be replanted on streets where we have major concrete repairs, until the concrete is poured.
A representative from Time Warner did a walkarouind with the Board May 6 to catalog the cabling issues. As noted in an earlier news item, cables have been poorly routed, improperly attached to building walls, and draped over roofs and bushes. The cable company rep assured us that a TW crew will return to the property within the month to itemize and correct these cabling issues.
The annual question is back: what about grass?
Always challenging, this issue has no simple answer in Silver Valley. We have sun-exposed and shaded areas, most with equally bad soil; many with poor drainage. If you want to tackle this yourself, Russ at Impact Landscaping recommends a bluegrass perennial rye blend, or a shade mix in areas that get little or no sun.
News Updates 4.24.2014
The main entrance sign on Silver Valley Boulevard has been sanded, stained, and sealed, with fresh silver paint applied to the letters.
The Board did a walk around the association on 4.23. Several issues were noted:
The cable companies are doing a terrible job of running new data cables. They are leaving cables exposed in common areas, draping cables over roofs, and stringing them over walls and windows. The offenses have been photographed, and the management company will file a formal complaint with the service providers. If you have a new cable service installed, please make sure the job is done properly. The association will not be responsible for exterior damage caused by water leaks related to improper cable routing. From what we've seen, that is a very likely result of their ham-fisted installation procedures.
Damaged/dislodged street grates on Silver Valley have been repaired and reinstalled.
We have formal permission from the Stow Post Office to sand andpaint our rusted mail boxes. An inventory indicates that most are in good shape, but a few will need to be sanded, treated, and painted. (We just need some warm, dry weather.)
Thanks to those of you have already put a fresh coat of paint on your garage and entrance doors. Many doors still need attention, however.We realize this was a tough winter, but several doors have been neglected for years, and some entrance doors have large strips of paint peeling and missing. Those in need of attention have been inventoried, and letters will be sent to owners. The same applies to neglected stain on railings and decks, which are also unit owner responsibilities.

Homestead Tax Exemption
Are you eligible for the Homestead Tax Exemption?
From the Summit County Fiscal Office Web Site:
The Homestead Exemption is available to homeowners who are 65 years or older, or totally disabled under the age of 65. Under the exemption, property is taxed at $25,000 less than its appraised value. To qualify, you must be the owner of the home or manufactured home and it must be your primary residence on January 1 for the tax year you apply. Applicants may apply for Homestead Exemption in the year they turn 65 as long as they own and occupy the house as of January 1 of the year they file.
NOTE! Due to the recent passage of Ohio House Bill 59, beginning January 1, 2014 new applicants will be subject to a means test. Eligible applicants must not have a total income over $30,500 per year, which includes the Ohio adjusted gross income of the owner and the owner's spouse. This will not affect homeowners currently enrolled in the Homestead Exemption or eligible applicants for 2013 who submit their application before Monday, June 2, 2014.”
New Responsive Site
Welcome to the New Silver Valley Condo Website. This new site is made with a special "responsive" template that automatically adjusts the display to fit a widescreen PC monitor, tablet, or smart phone. This eliminates a lot of resizing, panning, and zooming on smaller devices. We hope you like it, and that you will return to stay abreast of news and events in our community.
Many of our garage doors are in bad shape. In fact, lower panels on several units have lost their paint entirely, and are starting to rot. We ask that all unit owners accept responsibility for cleaning and painting their entrance and garage doors, as needed.
Guest parking is for guests. Please do not use the guest parking spaces for personal vehicles.
Children at Play
We have children playing on our streets. Please drive slowly, put down your cell phone, and watch for kids who may run in front of you.
Pets to be Leashed
All pets must be leashed when outside the condo unit. Dogs and cats. This is both a condo regulation and a city ordinance.
