Pool & Parking: Applications Due April 1
Every owner must complete and return a pool pass application and a parking form by April 1. Residents may not park in Windgate II with expired parking passes (they expire May 31). Access to the pool will be denied without a valid pool pass or guest pass for 2019. If you were issued and kept a plastic card pass in 2018, please request renewal stickers for 2019. If you do not have your pool pass from last year, you must request a new card. Replacement of resident pool passes will cost $20 per pass.
To ensure that our pool rules are in alignment with the Fair Housing Act, the 15-minute “adults only” swim will now be a “lap” swim. Swimmers of any age may be in the pool during the last 15 minutes of each hour, if they are swimming laps.
If you are renting your unit, you may convey your right to use the pool to your tenant by completing the appropriate section of the pool pass application. Please provide a copy of the tenant’s lease with the pool application. Only owners or renters can use the pool. If an owner conveys their rights to the pool to their tenants, the owner will not be eligible to receive a pool pass.
DWAYNE -- Our long-time maintenance supervisor, Dwayne Miller, has been out on medical leave. Dwayne recently let us know that he will not be returning to his job at Windgate II. Community life without Dwayne will be quite a change for all of us. For most of us, he has been here since we moved in. The community will be organizing an event to say farewell to Dwayne. Please contact a board member if you would like to help. We will begin recruiting to find a replacement for Dwayne. We ask your continued patience until we are fully staffed again.
ASSISTANT MANAGER -- The part-time assistant community manager position has been filled. Joanne Nelson starts in the position with FirstService Residential on March 20. Joanne will be supporting our community exclusively. She will be on-site frequently, and when not on-site, Joanne will be close-by and available during work hours. Those attending our Spring Fling on had a chance to meet Joanne. She is is energetic and enthusiastic. We look forward to the benefits a dedicated assistant will bring.
INSURANCE -- The 2019 certificate of insurance is now available.
COMCAST -- Comcast has been digging trenches in the community. They are pulling fiber for a system upgrade for customers. Due to the compactness of our community, some of the trenching has been very close to trees. While Comcast is committed to restoring damaged landscape, we are especially concerned over potential damage to trees. We have requested a written assessment from our arborist that we will use to establish the basis for future restitution for potential damage to trees that may not manifest for 2-3 years. For more immediate damage, we will ask Comcast to return as needed. Given the temperature and frequent rain, their current efforts at restoration will likely need to be repeated.
LIGHT FIXTURES -- The association has 4 front stoop light fixtures remaining from a bulk purchase made a few years ago. The purchase price for owners is a bargain $25. If you would like to purchase one while they last, email email@example.com.
TRADES CENTER STUDY -- At the Shirlington Library on March 11 county board members Libby Garvey and Matt de Ferranti spoke, and an overview of the new "Trades Center Optimization Study" was provided. Read about the study.
