Happy New Year

2010 has been a good year for the Villas at Riverbend. We have enjoyed many good times together at the pool and the clubhouse for Koffee Klatches and Potlucks. Our summer cookout and Christmas Party were some of the best attended parties we have had. The New Year is a good time to make a Riverbend resolution. Resolve to ask your Riverbend neighbors to go with you to the Potlucks, Koffee Klatches, card nights and other activities in our community. It is a great way to get new residents involved and to make new Riverbend friends.

The Board of Directors hopes that you had a great 2010. Our wish is for you and your family and friends to have a Happy, Healthy and Exciting New Year in 2011.

Dear Villas at Riverbend Residents –

Your Board of Directors has decided that the snow will again be removed from the property at the 2 inch level this year. The streets will be salted as necessary. In addition, because most homeowners come and go through their garage in the winter, and do not utilize the walks much, the Board has determined not to clear the entire walk of residents that do not need the service. However, the Board has determined to have the area immediately in front of every front door cleared on every unit each time the walk shoveling is done. This would be approximately a 4’ x 4’ area which will help keep your doors from being frozen in and inoperable. Please understand this is not foolproof as many of you know.

However, in recognizing the responsibility of the Association to maintain the exterior and remove snow for its residents, the Board wishes to ensure that anyone who needs the walks cleared has it done for them. Therefore, if this is a service that you need to continue, please contact RPM Customer Service and they will make sure you are on the list.

You may contact them as follows:

Email: Customerservice@rpmanagement.com

Telephone: 614-766-6500

Please contact them with your address by December 19 if you wish to be included on the “sidewalk clearing” list. Otherwise, it will be assumed that you do not need the entire walk in front of your unit cleared.

Please note that the walks in front of the clubhouse and the area in front of the mailbox banks will be cleared each time any sidewalks are done.

Your Board is trying hard to keep fee increases to a minimum required and still do the things that need to be done in the community. This is a way that you can help!

If you should have any questions, please contact Customer Service at Real Property Management at 614-766-6500 and they will assist you.

Thank you for your assistance.

Your Board of Directors

Owners are responsible for compliance with the provisions of Section 5311.09(A)(2) and (A)(3) of the Ohio Revised code as explained on page 5 of your Resident Handbook. Generally, it states that specified information must be supplied within 30 days after you obtain ownership and within 30 days after a change of any information required. This would apply to residents who have invited family or friends to live in their unit. Should this apply to you, please contact Real Property Management to obtain the appropriate paperwork. Remember, it is a requirement not only of your Condominium Association, but Ohio law as well.

You may remember the success we had with shrub rejuvenation in 2008. Those shrubs are now doing well. Now many of our other shrubs are 10 years old and are too big, woody, misshapen and are hanging over sidewalks or covering windows.

The Board of Directors has decided to rejuvenate a number of our shrubs. Shrub rejuvenation is a drastic cut back of the shrub and removal of dead branches. It is labor intensive and most of that work will be done by hand.

Due to the drastic nature of the cut back, we wanted to share this information with you so you would understand the need for this action. Also, it is a little shocking to see the shrubs after they are cut back. If we did not rejuvenate the shrubs, many would continue to deteriorate and require replacement in the next several years.

Not all of the shrubs will be drastically cut back. Those that are not will be pruned according to our usual schedule.

The Shade Company (our current landscaping contractor) will be doing this work for us. The process will begin about May 27th and should take about seven (7) work days to complete. Please do not ask the work crew for any special cutting requests.
