Manager’s Monthly Update


August 28, 2018

This will be my final Manager’s Monthly Update for the Season. From time to time during the off-season I will post messages on our web site. Please check it periodically. I will be away in Connecticut and Maine on vacation from September 4 -16. I should have cell coverage for the majority of the time so do not hesitate to call if I am needed.

 Let me take this opportunity to thank Emily, Claude, Jamie, all the Guards, Caroline, Lydia, the Board of Directors (last year and current), and you the Bear Paw residents for your support for me and your hard work and dedication in making it a great season…………..and a “super year”!  I have been blessed to have such a great staff and concerned residents.

POOL

I have scheduled Sunday, September 16, 2018 as the last day for use of the pool this season. It has been a great season and I hope to have a new look around the pool next season.

GROUNDS

Split Rail fencing completed around the entry to the main Clubhouse parking area to deter vehicles from driving into Trail, the drainage area. Stone fill is being used on various roads within the community to address drainage and wash-out issues. Road scraping, graveling and asphalting will begin in early October. We have tentatively identified Highland, Beach, Moccasin Trail, Turkey Trail, Big Bass and Broken Arrow for work to be done. Repair of damaged areas within BPSD will also be done dependent upon cost and budget.

PAINTING

Redwood staining of the fencing, rails and walkway area around the guardhouse will begin this week. A new railing for the steps was built at the entrance to the tennis. It will also be stained this week.

 KUDZU

Claude and Jamie have all but completed spraying around BPSD. Thankfully we have had a few weeks of 2-3 days of no rain which allowed it to be completed. Hopefully next season we will have a drier Spring to enable spraying to start in May/June.

 CLUBHOUSE

A new diaper changing table will be installed in the men’s bathroom this week. Once the pool is closed for the season we will complete the floor painting around the clubhouse entrance, old skate house and the rear rest room. These areas were purposely not painted earlier in the year to allow for easy access by bathers to the rest room and so as not to inconvenience the foot traffic using the main clubhouse and office entrance.

 UPCOMING OFF SEASON AND SPRING

Some of the projects I hope to have completed include:

Additional split rail fencing around some common areas and the entrance to BPSD.
A new “look” at the pool………. Sorry, cannot disclose as I want it to be a surprise.
Additional seating and table units at the pool.
Benches and a new squeegee for the tennis court.
If possible, a new look to our volleyball area.
A new multi-purpose activity unit in the children’s playground here.
