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.

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.
Up until this week the clubhouse floor was partial tile and partial parquet. A supply of ceramic tiles from recent years ago was found stored in the clubhouse and were adequate to finish the job. This week the old wood floor is gone and the tiles are now installed! Looks much better!
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.
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!
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.
Additionally, the City has placed rock at the culvert at the path behind Auburn and Bennington.
Neighbors can once again help with litter pickup this Saturday morning, 12/10 at 10 AM.
Our Neighborhood Watch program is being reactivated. We need concerned neighbors to step up and volunteer. Details to be provided this Sunday , 12/11 at 3 PM at the clubhouse.
Come join us!
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.
Due to the weather, this event is moved to Sat, Oct. 15. Join us for community cleanup in the morning. We’ll spruce up the common areas, throw out broken rails, debris, and power wash, etc.
Then bring your famous chili to the hot dog roast at noon.at the clubhouse. We’ll have a prize for the winner!
