FROM THE HOA PRESIDENT, APRIL 2023
1. 2023 PROJECTS MOVING FORWARD: The HOA Board budgeted various “reserve” or “capital” projects for the 2023 budget year. At the March HOA board meeting, the Board approved the final reserve budget item by approving the asphalt projects for 2023 as set out in the agenda. By eliminating the drainage project in the budget, additional asphalt work was allowed. Weather permitting, that work will begin in May and you will be notified as to the schedule for the separate repair and preservation phases.
The approved handicap ramp work between buildings 17 and 39 on Brentwood, under a cost sharing arrangement negotiated by the Board between the City of Olathe and the HOA is close to completion.
The first year of the trail upgrade project (projected to be a 4- or 5-year project) will begin, weather permitting, early April.
Bob Fenton organized a recent pre painting planning meeting (Thank you Bob) and the 2023 painting phase will begin in July. Further information will be provided to those buildings involved closer to the beginning of that project.
2. ARC: The ARC committee will do a prelimary inspection focused on missing foundation plantings in April for review at the April 14 committee meeting. There are several units in which foundation plantings have not been replaced with “bushes or shrubs” creating a lack of visual consistency.
IN ADDITION, if you make a change in the exterior of the unit (for example, doors on the patio, garage door replacements, fences on the patio, landscaping changes, ring doorbells, etc.), you need to file an ARC request available on the asburyvillas.com website. Please consult the Unit Exterior Policy on the asburyvillas.com website for additional information.
Hopefully, spring has arrived; periodic rain (not snow) will give a good moisture start before the heat of summer. Signature has begun its work under the landscape contract with mulching, spring cleanup, and spring turf application.
