Sweetbriar Playground News

Hi neighbors,

At our previous board meeting, we asked for volunteers to form a playground committee that would be tasked with the responsibility of coming up with proposals on the future of our neighborhood tot lot playgrounds. At the time, the board felt that the state of the Phase 1 playground at the entrance of our development was in a deteriorating state and was beginning to be an unsafe place for children.

As a result of the committee’s research, estimates, and proposals, we would like to announce the following plans:

  • Relocation of climbing equipment from Phase 1 back to Phase 3, including the replacement of any material which is rotted or deteriorating
  • Removal of all other material in Phase 1 lot, grading of existing dirt, and establishment of grass seed

We feel that this move will result in a safer playground that has less maintenance costs and increased activity due to it’s location.

Over the past few months, we had two separate contractors (including a playground specialist from Country Structures) come out to inspect the equipment; both contractors said the equipment is structurally sound.

Work on the above will commence in Fall 2018.

Thank you,

The Board

New Business – Phase I Tot-Lot (We need your help!)

One topic up for discussion last night was the future of the Phase 1 tot-lot at the entrance of our neighborhood.  As noted by many board members, the current state of the playground in this lot is inadequate and may be a cause for safety concerns.  As a result of this discussion, the Board has decided to seek additional community feedback and guidance before making any final decisions on the future of this lot.  We would like to form a volunteer committee to explore pricing and options associated with removal, repair, or replacement options.  If you are interested in participating in this committee, please contact us.


Electronic Payments

The Board voted last night to approve electronic payments as an additional option for our residents to pay their annual dues.  Residents are encouraged to continue to make their annual payments via the mailer that gets provided each year.  Online payments is an alternative method that may be used.  Once logged in, members may access our online payment system by clicking hereNote that the merchant that processes the payments has a surcharge associated each transaction.

 

Thank you,
