Summer 2020 Updates

posted Jun 25, 2020, 12:02 PM by Serenity Ridge
Happy Summer everyone!  We want to update you on a few items that we have been working on the past few weeks.

WHAT ARE THOSE WOODEN STAKES WITH PINK FLAGS ON THE STREET?
You may have noticed in various areas of the neighborhood some stakes with a pink flag and pink spray paint on the road.  Those have been placed there by Soils and Structures, a company who will be performing our core testing of the roads.  This will enable us to better gauge the amount of time we have until our roads need replacing.  They will begin work very soon and will be working throughout the neighborhood so please keep an eye out for them.

TIMBER WINDS DRIVE LIGHT REPAIR
Van Kempen Electric will be fixing the street light on Timber Winds Drive.  The underground wiring has gone bad so they needed to wait until the ground thawed, then COVID happened.  We are finally back on track to get this repaired!

TERMITES?
One of our neighbors had some home repairs done earlier this year and the repairman found termite damage after removing some drywall (their home is 7 years old).  Below is what they described and wanted to get this out to anyone who may want to consider treatment for their home.

"Termites need to move between wood and water daily. So as long as there’s no highly moist wood or wet condensation on pipes in the house the termites need to go between the ground for moisture and wood. This time of year they are hibernating so they don’t go into the wood.  The termites had tunnels approximately 4 feet high from the ground level. And since we only had about a 2 foot wide section of drywall removed, there’s no telling what other entrances they might have have in to our house.  Therefore, treatment around the entire house in case there might be other places where the termites create their tunnels to get between the ground and the wood.  The location happens to be the walkout basement area that faces south southeast. But from everything I would understand that’s not necessarily relevant. So again the entire perimeter of the house is going to be treated which is a usual plan."

CLEAN-UP - TIMBER WINDS DRIVE / GRAND BLUFFS DRIVE
We have noticed that both of the entrances are beginning to accumulate weeds and need some attention.  We are working to get both entrances cleaned up!

If you have questions or concerns regarding any of these announcements, please contact one of the Board members.  Enjoy the remainder of your Summer!
