Building and Grounds
September 14th, 2010
From: The Chair
The Building and Grounds Committee
The building and grounds committee has not held a meeting since May of this year.
The committee members have been busy working to complete the projects approved at that meeting.
Building waterproofing and restoration - several committee members have been involved in inspection
and acceptance of this project since the committee took on this responsibility in January of 09. This has involved as
many as five inspections per balcony since January. Many thanks to Tom Roam, Roger Verstay, Ed and Sherrri McConnell,
Fred McDaneils, Bill Badger and all who been involved in making sure the association received what was paid for. The
project should be completed within weeks and we are currently involved with final inspections.
Pool Code Update. The association has applied for a variance to allow certain non complying
aspects of our 45 year old pool to remain, while we bring the plumbing and filtration system into compliance with current
code. The state has scheduled a hearing for the association, which should take place within the next couple of weeks.
In Door Air Quality and Equipment Review - The association is still seeking an Engineer
who is qualified to look at our existing structure, original design, current problems and design a indoor air system to meet
Expansion Joint - The expansion joint at the base of the building's South wall where the building abuts the parkng garage
is leaking profusely with each rain. Management has been taking bid's on new expansions for the building and South Canopy.
Personal Notes: Dr. Ann Ward one of the association's longest serving Board members and past President, has taken
- up new residence, which provides more care for her day-to-day needs, Dr. Ward served on too many boards to count
and as president for five years at one stretch. Her drive, expertise in linguistics and association law will not
likely be provided by one individual to such an exemplary degree anytime soon if at all. We all wish her God's Speed
into the future.
