Drainage Issue Lake Terrace Drive
Board members did a walkaround with Russ from Impact Landscaping on 8.14 to evaluate the drainage issue in the common area behind 176-200 Lake Terrace Drive. So far this year, drainage improvements on Ridge Side Court, Olson Spur, and Silver Valley North have alleviated the chronic flooding experienced by unit owners in those areas, leaving the section of Lake Terrace as the last area with a major drainage problem.
The exact date for the repairs in not known at this time, but we are confident the project will be completed before winter; stay tuned for updates.
One of the items paid by your monthly maintenance fee is the premium for insurance that covers damage/replacement of building exteriors and other assets, and provides our liability coverage.
This past week, the Board reviewed our policy and current rates as part of its ongoing responsibility to oversee Association affairs. We have been with the same insurer for many years, and their agent reviewed our costs, coverages, and limits.

Drainage Repairs Silver Valley North
Impact Landscaping has added a gravel path at the rear of four units behind 70-76 Silver Valley (North).
Similar to the drainage improvements already completed on Olson Spur and Ridge Side, the gravel collects and routes runoff water from heavy rains to a large drainage grate near the retaining wall. Heavy rocks around the drain help divert any surface water accumulation, to keep it way from the building foundation.
The Board is currently reviewing the next drainage project on Lake Terrace, and hopes to have a solution in place before the end of summer.
Grounds Maintenance and Mowing
Several residents have asked questions about mowing, trimming, and general cleanup. To get answers, the Board did a walkaround with a representative from Turfscape on July 22.
Here are the issues that were addressed, and their resolution.
If you have "adopted" plants and grass in a limited common area and do not want the landscapers to mow, trim, or otherwise maintain that space, please call the management company and have them place your name on the "NO TOUCH" list. The addresses on this list will be entered in a database on the crew chief's iPad, and the protected areas at those units will not be touched. It is then the unit owner's responsibility to maintain that protected area.
Several of our main electrical panels are overgrown, making it difficult to take meter readings. In one case, a large bush has grown behind a panel, and it must be removed before it causes expensive damage, or a power outage.
Residents have asked why the landscape crews have been starting later in the day. The answer is simple: in the hot weather, our wooded setting provides shade for the workers.
The Board and representative discussed general cleanup and trimming issues, and identified several problem areas that will be addressed and monitored more closely.
If you generate a large amount of plant debris (limbs, branches, etc.), make arrangements with the management company to have it removed. Do not trim anything in the common areas without written permission.

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.

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.
