The pool will be available for swimming or sun bathing by reservation only. See the daily schedules and reservation procedures for the pool. Watch this tutorial on how to reserve pool time. Follow this year's new pool rules in addition to the rules that apply each year (see "Pool Rules" section on the Pool, Tennis, Gazebo page).
 
Mint, Charred Wood
Two reminders from the landscape committee: Please do not dump charred wood or charcoal behind back patios, in common areas, or near mulched beds. This is a fire hazard. If any is seen, please contact jillian.wells@fsresidential.com. Also, please do not plant mint at Windgate II unless it is in a pot. Mint is an invasive plant that can harm other plants.
Parking Lot
Parking lot cleaning and striping is scheduled for May 25-26. You must move your car by 8:30 am on your assigned date or it will be relocated by Advanced Towing. Read more.
Fire Place Inspections
Our insurer is now requiring as a condition of renewal of our policy that we implement procedures for verifying that unit owners are completing bi-annual inspections and performing any work recommended by the inspector. The inspection of your fireplace, chimney and chimney vent must be completed every two years by a professional chimney sweep and conform with National Fire Protection Association Standards (NFPA 211). Unit owners must perform any cleaning, maintenance or repairs that the inspector determines to be necessary using methods that do not impair the structural or thermal performance of the fireplace and chimney. Unit owners must submit evidence of the inspection and completion of any recommended work. Evidence of the inspection and additional work completed must be submitted to the community association manager no later than June 30, 2021. The inspection must have occurred within the prior twelve months. Read more.
Tree Climbing & Turf Damage
Our community has experienced several incidents of children damaging turf and plants, including at the gazebo and along the serpentine and paver paths. The association invests significant resources to maintain our grass and landscaping. Children have also been seen climbing trees. We are currently evaluating a number of trees for rot, and these may present a greater danger than already exists when climbing trees. We ask that you please monitor your children's activities and ensure that they do not damage community property or put themselves in harm's way. Thank you for your cooperation.
Hose Bibs & Bulk Trash Pickup
It's time to turn on hose bibs. How to do so -- and bulk trash pickup (April 24-25) -- are topics in the lastest community update.
Update
Items on front porches, grilling at the gazebo, plants and pots on porches and limited common areas, and cigarette butt disposal are topics of the April 2 community update.
Parking & Pool Applications
Applications for parking and the pool are now available. FSR must receive your completed applications by April 1. Residents will not be able to park in the community with expired parking passes. Pool access will be denied without a valid pool pass for 2021. See the explanation letter. Download the fillable PDF of the applications for parking and tennis and the pool.
Water Pressure Testing
High water pressure in units has become a widespread problem in Windgate II. It leads to excess consumption of water (water is our single largest expense) and damage to plumbing systems and appliances. The board is providing advance notice of its plans and to give unit owners an opportunity to correct their high water pressure before community-wide measurements this spring. Read more about the board's plans -- and what owners and residents will need to do.
