Some people have received text messages saying they owe delinquent PUD fees and to pay them through the text. Please know (1) neither Abingdon Village nor the manager communicates late PUD fees via text, and (2) a delinquent homeowner will receive letters in the US mail and by this time of year, would have already been turned over to the attorney for collections. If you have any questions about your bill, please contact the manager at 757-333-7675.
Recently, the lifeguard chair was repaired by a volunteer board member instead of buying a new one. A small shelf was added for the phone in the clubhouse for the lifeguard and the emergency 911 signs were updated with the clubhouse address.
To solve the problem of puddling (a slip hazard) at one of the pool ladders and badly cracked cement, a section was torn up, a drain installed, and new cement poured. The drain empties out into the grass several feet away.
The asphalt at the bridge behind Bates and Anderson was repaired.
Caution signs were erected at the path entrances across the neighborhood. The signs also indicate that the paths for for Abingdon Village residents only and that dogs must be leashed.
Additionally, the damaged pet waste station trash can at the clubhouse was replaced by the contractor who was responsible.
The City of Virginia Beach is working with a phone app, SeeClickFix, which is designed to be used to report problems such as potholes, sidewalks, signs or traffic lights, abandoned grocery carts, overgrown vegetation, etc. You take a picture, write a brief description and it gets directed to the right department. A watch area for Abingdon Village has been created. Here are the details. https://seeclickfix.com/
Yesterday and today, several neighbors helped with tree work. Vicki procured the equipment for the HOA at a discount. Keith, Scott, Bryan, Dean, Miles, Andre, & Johnnie helped with chainsaws, ropes and making piles.
There was a broken branch hanging in a pine tree at College Park by Bennington which was taken down and cut up. The dangerous and dead trees in the clubhouse area were cut down. Now there is cleanup to do. If you can take tree debris to the dump or to take home firewood, please do so. Thanks!
Contractors have replaced the front doors, gutters, and missing fascia. Plus two of our neighbors replaced the damaged boards (due to a leak in the roof– now fixed) in the storage closet, painted, and organized it.
There is a damaged tree with a huge hole in it inside the recreation area which needs a remedy. The meeting is to discuss and authorize the solution.
