New Bridge by Bucknell Circle

The old bridge behind the middle of Bucknell Circle had two different kinds of rails, was missing several slats, and showed signs of decay.

 

 

 

 

 

A new bridge was recently built to replace it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additionally, the recent wind storms also took down a tree nearby, but thankfully, one of our neighbors saw it and cut it up for firewood, saving the Association the cost of having it done. We love volunteers!

New Heat Pump & Air Conditioner and New Pet Waste Station

We now have an efficient heat pump and air conditioner unit in the clubhouse. It’s quiet and will be a tremendous benefit for all of the social events, meetings, and private parties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We recently learned that the city had a grant for pet waste stations. We applied and were given one which is now installed on the path behind Auburn and Bates. We hope to apply for additional stations when they become available.  Here is the grant information.

More tree debris cleaned up

The tree at the clubhouse uprooted by the hurricane has all finally been removed. The last part took special equipment. The trunk and rootball were 2600 pounds and the additional tree debris that was still remaining was another 1500 pounds.  Additionally, hanging over the path behind Bradley was another branch broken by the same storm which was discovered and also removed. Whew!

Working towards a cleaner and safer neighborhood

If you take a look at the clubhouse area, you will notice that the baby swing has been repaired and that the huge tree stump is being removed this week, weather permitting.

Storm and Path Clean-up

The recent storm felled the pine tree at the clubhouse and took out the crossbeam of the baby swing.  Volunteers were out the next day assessing the damage and the following day, neighbors came out to help clean it up with chainsaws. At our Fall Clean-up on Saturday, much of the debris were further sawed and tossed in the dumpster.

Additionally, Lloyd of LJ’s Lawns had his crew working on the path behind Adelphi, so neighbors can actually walk back there now.  It’s already a huge difference.  The attached map shows where they will be doing extra work in October (yellow zone).  See Clean-Up Zones here.
