Distracted driving

We have received an increasing number of reports from residents concerned about texting whilst driving. As a community that promotes safety first, we encourage residents to avoid using mobile devices whilst driving.

Because text messaging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far one of the most alarming distractions. The average text message distracts a driver for 4.6 seconds: That’s like driving the length of a football field blind at 55mph.

Being a family community, we have younger residents that are at greater risk of having an accident with a distracted driver.

Distracted driving costs lives, please be proactive and let us not wait for an accident to happen. Make a habit of waiting until it’s safe to use the device, inside and outside of our community.

Lawn chemical treatments

We will be carrying out a chemical application around the common areas of the property on Friday January 13, 2017.

For safety reasons, signs will be placed in the areas being treated and we would ask that parents and pet owners pay particular attention to the affected areas.

In particular please ensure pets and children avoid the area opposite the park located near Roberts’ Isle.

Important changes to construction guidelines

Effective January 1, 2017 amendments to the construction guidelines will become effective. The changes have been adopted to minimize the likelihood of disruption during construction activity.

The full guidelines are available here, the amendments affect two clauses and are highlighted below:

2.1.3                                       Construction activity is permitted only between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Mondays through Friday save for excavation work which is permitted until 3:00pm. No construction is allowed on Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays. Any construction activity considered a nuisance can be stopped by Security and workers may be asked to leave.

2.1.5                                       The contractor is responsible for avoiding damage and making full repairs to any Common Areas, developed or undeveloped properties, streets, sidewalks, utilities, lighting, signage and/or landscaping in the vicinity of the construction site. Before heavy equipment is permitted on the property the owner shall agree to indemnify the Association, by way of written agreement, against loss or damage caused by such equipment. Heavy equipment will be denied access if no specific indemnity is in place from the owner in a written form held at the security gate.

The Indemnity Agreement is available for download at the Construction Guidelines page.
