Street Paving Mulberry Lane - Monday 5-21-2018
Crews from Perrin Asphalt will mill and repave a large section of Mulberry Lane on Monday May 21, 2018.
The entire length of the street will then be sealed at a later date.
Spring Plans 2018
Plans are being made for 2018, following a long Winter..
The snow plow job done this past season was poor. Plowing-related damage has been cataloged, with cleanup to follow. Our current plowing contractor will be replaced. We have solicited several bids, and are vetting prospective replacements for the 2018-2019 plowing season. Next year, we will return to plowing driveways with a skid steer (Bobcat), instead of trucks. When the contractor selection is finalized, we will post the news here.
The Board met with our landscaper today. Items discussed include:
Spring cleanup to start as soon as weather permits. Perhaps as early as next week.
Mulching schedule: Mulch will be applied in May, before the Memorial Day observance.
Selective planting of several common areas between driveways.
Selective overseeding of the erosion control areas and reseeding of several bare spots.
We shall request bids to replace two more retaining walls.
As soon as weather permits, we will inspect our building exteriors to assess and address cracked, damaged stucco. Cost estimates to follow.

Annual Meeting and Proxies
You will soon receive a notice in the mail regarding this year's SVCA Annual Meeting, which will be held on May 16, 2018 at the Cuyahoga Falls Public Library, 2015 3rd St, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221.
Please be sure to mail back your proxies; last year we almost had to cancel and reschedule because we did not initially have enough proxies and attendees to reach a quorum.
Also note: The meeting room has changed to the Sutliff Room, and the meeting hours have changed to 6:30 - 8:00 pm.
2018 Board Election
This year, we are treating Board member recruitment proactively, and more aggressively than ever before.
In years past, candidates have been asked to present themselves in a brief speech at the annual meeting. This is not fair to the candidate or to the members. This is an important position, which deserves longer and more thoughtful consideration.
Therefore, each unit has been mailed a newsletter with an enclosed candidate form. We encourage members of the community who are interested in service as a Board member to complete the form and mail it to the management company. Forms will be scanned and posted to the SVCA web site in the order in which they are received.
We are especially interested in attracting individuals who can work amicably with—and cooperate with—fellow Board members on a wide range of issues.
While not essential, desirable candidates will bring a practical background that includes life experience and/or formal training in areas that might typically include (but are not limited to) things like contract appraisal, contract negotiation, general business management, finance, or law. A working familiarity with construction practices and landscaping is a plus.
Younger members and those of you who are new to Silver Valley are certainly encouraged to respond, and to start a process of involvement in community affairs that will protect both their personal intvestment and the greater well being of the community at large.
This is a critically important election with the loss of several longstanding members within the last 18 months.
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.
