Exterior Maintenance of our Homes and Landscaping
Board of Directors, 03-17-2017
R E M I N D E R
As a reminder, and as we approach the Spring Season, the Board of Directors would like to ask that each homeowner pay particular attention to the maintenance and appearance of the exterior of their homes and landscaping. In that a significant number of the properties within our community are maturing, it is prudent that each homeowner review the condition of their homes. Areas of concern should be, but not limited to, faded paint, condition of exterior doors, garage doors and windows, cracked exterior walls, aging roofing material and the general health and condition of their lawns and landscaping. Where needed and appropriate repairs should be made. Due to the harsh conditions this winter be advised that there has been a significant increase to the number of trees and plants impacted by winter kill. Should you have any plants or trees affected by the severe winter we recommend that you have a landscaper inspect them to determine if it is necessary/appropriate to have them removed and replaced.
In this regard, one of the main concerns expressed by our homeowners is what they can do to maintain the value of their homes? As you may know, and as a community, the most important factor we can all do to achieve this goal is to maintain our homes at the highest standard possible, which includes regular maintenance.
Please keep in mind, when performing maintenance on the exterior of your home or making landscape improvements, homeowners must complete an ARC application form to make sure construction and maintenance standards established by our CC&R’s are met. The application form must be submitted and approval received prior to the start of any work. The application, with detailed guidelines, can be found on our Website at http://www.banburymeadows.org, under “Homeowner Information”, Item #3. PLEASE NOTE – the ARC Application process has been updated and the review procedures streamlined to ensure we can achieve a quicker response to homeowners. If you have any questions or need assistance in this regard, please contact our Association Manager at DSI, Brenda Hines, Tel# 208-939-6000.
The Board and Association appreciates your attention to this most important matter.
