“Spectrum, has recently begun a nationwide initiative to deploy and offer WiFi services to municipalities, campuses, stadiums, malls, and populated areas such as parks and plazas.

Non-Spectrum customers will be able to use free Wi-Fi service up to 60 minutes per day. Spectrum will manage and support the network at no cost to Addison.” –Addison News

MOSQUITO SPRAYING—Received results of the April 20, 2017 “Mosquito Spraying on Private Property” letter from the Town requesting homeowners’ permission to set and monitor traps. And, if mosquitos found, spray for West Nile and other mosquito-borne viruses.

As of the June 28, 2017 letter,”… the Town has received permission from 58 of the 174 property owners. This represents just 33.33%. Based on this response, the Town will not move forward with expanding this program to the Addison Place neighborhood at this time…”

 TRASH CAN REMINDER

 

This is a friendly reminder to dispose of your trash in a one-way plastic bag and

not in a trash can. If a trash can is used, it may be thrown away with the rest of your garbage. If the trash can is thrown away, it will not be replaced by the Town or CWD. Thank you for your efforts to improve trash services in Addison Place.

  BI-MONTHLY BULLETIN

 

Dear Addison Place Homeowner/Resident, 

Addison Place Homeowners' Association (APHOA) provides a bi-monthly bulletin to inform homeowners/residents of the happenings, information and developments in our neighborhood. This bulletin augments our website: www.addisonplace.org

 Survey Results Are In 

·         By a 2-1 margin homeowners/residents support retaining the motion-detecting lights over the garage. Many neighbors responded to the survey conducted in February-March with additional comments and thoughts. Some neighbors suggested aiming the lights down versus into a neighbor’s windows and adjusting the amount of time the lights stay on after being triggered, if the fixture permits. Another neighbor recommended checking with law enforcement for its view. Contact with Addison’s Chief of Police Paul Spencer was made. Chief Spencer confirmed that lighting is a deterrent and referred us to the National Crime Prevention Council’s Home Security Checklist > Outdoor Security website: 

        http://www.ncpc.org/resources/files/pdf/neighborhood-safety 

·         GREAT NEWS! Landscaping to replace the removed landscaping due to the drainage re-construction is planned for the week beginning May 8. 

·         The Town has completed its annual certification of our Pool. May 1 is “official” open date, although many use once water is warm enough. Pool Rules are posted. Homeowners are provided an initial key to the Pool gate. If the initial key is lost, there is a $25.00 replacement charge. Feel free to contact SNL, the management company, at 214 243-2175.

·         A major amenity of Addison Place is the Club House/patio area. An extended-family gathering, a large birthday, wedding rehearsal, anniversary party and other types of gatherings may make this major amenity fitting for homeowners/residents to use. A full kitchen with stove, refrigerator and microwave, wet bars, dining table(s) and chair(s) for several guests are available. Rental of the Club House is a modest $25.00. There is a security deposit of $200.00. Check with SNL, the management company, at 214 243-2175 to reserve your date. 

·         ADDISON’S SEMI-ANNUAL COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE—Residents, who have stuff, can sell said stuff on Saturday, May 6, 8a-2p. For $20.00 per booth, Addison residents can sell their stuff under a large tent at the Addison Town Center parking lot (in front of Crunch Fitness) to any interested buyer. Document shredding and e-recycling will also be available on site during the event. Vendor applications are available on the Town’s website: https://addisontexas.net or at the Addison Service Center, 16801 Westgrove Dr., just down and across the street from us. 

·         Monthly meetings of the Addison Place Homeowners Association are scheduled for the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Club House.

Annual meeting is July 17,2017 at 7pm

BI-MONTHLY BULLETIN

posted Feb 20, 2017, 8:12 AM by shea tergerson

Dear Addison Place Resident/Homeowner,

Addison Place Homeowners' Association provides a bi-monthly bulletin to inform residents /homeowners of the happenings, information and developments in our neighborhood. This bulletin augments our website: www.AddisonPlace.org

 ü  It is time for the re-inspection of the homes that were repaired, painted and flaws corrected after last fall’s Architectural Standards inspection. Re-inspections should begin February 15 to confirm repair, painting and corrected flaws.

ü  The Town of Addison has notified Addison Place that its 30-plus-year-old sprinkler and swimming pool systems need updating. Seven double-check/backflow devices are required to be replaced and/or installed to have Addison Place sprinkler and swimming pool water systems in compliance. Winstead Plumbing Co. of Garland is currently bringing Addison Place in compliance with the Town’s ordinances. The cost is approximately $7,000.

ü  Please know our website: www.AddisonPlace.org has recently added under the “News” section the Addison’s and our surrounding communities’ informational, what’s-going-on and in-the-know website addresses.

ü  Following a reminder letter to some homeowners this past month: “rear garage light is not working”, a concern was expressed about the motion-detecting lights over the garage doors affecting the light coming inside the home. The homeowner would like to change the rule governing lighting for our streets and not have to power (turn-the-switch-on) the motion-detecting lights over the garages. Over the next 45 days please express your opinion to this concern by emailing news@addisonplace.org with subject line: “motion-detecting lights” Be sure to include your house number and street name in the email. We’ll have results in the next bulletin.

A Tip of the Hat to homeowner Erik Ouimette for stepping up and calling Addison Police Thursday 2/2/17 when the largest stone at the Westgrove entrance was apparently dragged at the start of rush hour into the northbound lane of Westgrove from its’ decorative position in the flower bed by some unknown method (possibly a large truck leaving Addison Place). It was too heavy for Erik or any single person to move it out of the traffic path. Once two police officers arrived, Erik, a passing bicyclist and the two officers were able to wobble it up on the curb and out of the roadway. By Friday afternoon 2/3/17, our management company, SNL, had returned the stone to its’ decorative position in the flower bed. All is well, today!

ü  Monthly meetings of the Addison Place Homeowners Association are scheduled for the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Club House.

Quarterly Bulletin

posted Jan 13, 2017, 8:33 AM by shea tergerson

Dear Addison Place Resident/Homeowner, 

Addison Place Homeowners' Association provides this quarterly bulletin to inform residents /homeowners of the happenings, information and developments in our neighborhood. This bulletin augments our website www.AddisonPlace.org. 

ü  Hats off to the many homeowners who repaired, painted and corrected flaws at their homes after this year's Architectural Standards inspection in maintaining and keeping our neighborhood values high. Only two homeowners requested a Hearing before the Board to discuss and verify facts following receipt of the inspection letter. One homeowner came to the Hearing reporting he was complying with the issue(s) in the inspection letter. The other homeowner, who had just recently purchased his home, came to the Hearing and was granted additional time to complete his repair/painting. 

ü  Tree trimming in Addison Place has been completed. The Board chose Wauson Tree Service, who is among the 21 "Best Tree Service Professionals in Dallas for 2016" according to expertise.com. Expertise measured 310 tree services in Dallas to find the 21 Best.  Wauson's team of ISA-Certified Arborists trimmed the branches that were overhanging our homes and had overgrown our streets lights on South Fork. Several homeowners took advantage of these professional Arborists to trim trees in their patios. 

ü  A reminder that these less daylight hours make our streets darker longer and the need to replace burnt-out lights or non-operational fixtures over garage doors is more apparent. Home  Depot, Lowe's, Sam's and Costco carry the low-energy, longer-lasting LED motion-detecting fixtures at reasonable prices. Several homeowners have updated their fixtures. 

ü  NEW NEIGHBOORS AT SOJOURN & WESTGROVE--Addison's Town Council approved a request in November by Knight Renovations to rezone property at the corner of Westgrove and Sojourn to allow for Knight Renovations' new office/warehouse and private fueling. Knight is a construction and renovation company currently based in Richardson. The Council recognized the proximity of the new business to Addison Place and added a condition that all loading and unloading must take place on the interior portion of the building. Construction fence is up! 

ü  Monthly meetings of the Addison Place Homeowners Association are scheduled for the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Club House.

FALL 2016 QUARTERLY BULLETIN

posted Oct 5, 2016, 8:57 AM by shea tergerson

Dear Addison Place Resident/Homeowner, 

Addison Place Homeowners' Association provides this quarterly bulletin to inform residents/homeowners of the happenings, information and developments in our neighborhood. This bulletin augments our website www.AddisonPlace.org. 

TWO NEW DIRECTORS ELECTED AT ANNUAL MEETING 

Mary Jo Crow and Becky Thompson were elected to the Board of Directors at the re-scheduled annual meeting 9/19/16. Julie Hill was appointed a Director to complete resigned Bob Percival's term. Mary Jo, Becky and Julie join Gary McIntyre and Shea Tergerson to complete the five-member Board.

The re-scheduled annual meeting had a total of 65 homeowners and proxies, which exceeded the 1/3 of 174 homeowners (58) to have a quorum. 

Following the meeting the new Board chose Julie, president; Mary Jo, vice-president; Gary, secretary; Becky, treasurer; Shea, member-at-large.

A 2016-2017 Budget was approved.

Four homes of the 12 homes identified last year with rain water intrusion have had drainage work completed. The remaining eight homes are now budgeted this fiscal year for repair. This past year's budget did not have the water intrusion repair and some of the landscape budget was used for the four that were repaired. The previous Board had approved the repair by Remedy Foundation for all 12 homes. 

It has been noted that a number of satellite dishes have been placed in front of the privacy fences.  These   homeowners will be asked to relocate behind the fences or be re-installed on their chimneys. 

The Town has recently created and filled a position of Property Standards Specialist, Gilbert Fernandez 972 450-2804, who will be enforcing the Town's Code of Ordinances through inspections. 

     Some of the Town's ordinances include:

§  storage of the recycling container following collection,

§  outside storage (our third parking space),

§  signs in yards,

§  junked vehicle--storage of dismantled or inoperative vehicles in view from a public street for more than 24 continuous hours is not allowed

§  protective treatment--all exterior surfaces must be maintained in good condition. Peeling, flaking or chipped paint is not permitted and must be repainted....

As always, we ask each neighbor to "scoop-the-poop" and dispose of poop properly. 

Troubling tree limbs are budgeted to be trimmed this Fall. Feel free to contact our management company--SNL with your tree limb concerns. 

As we are aware, street lighting in Addison Place is limited to street corners. Consequently, our streets are not well-lit at night and we ask the homeowner/resident to replaced burnt-out lights or repair non-operational fixtures.

 Monthly meetings of the Addison Place Homeowners Association are scheduled for the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Club House.

CLUBHOUSE RENTAL TRASH DISPOSAL

posted Sep 21, 2016, 7:19 AM by shea tergerson   [ updated Sep 21, 2016, 7:20 AM ]

If you rent the clubhouse it is your responsibility to dispose of any trash that you have accumulated in the correct manner.  This means that you can set it out beside the clubhouse (east side but not in the walled area) on the night before/morning of trash day or take it back to your residence and set it out on the appropriate trash day.  We are having residence use the walled in area on the east side of the clubhouse as a catch all for bulk trash.  The trash men do not throw the trash in this area away and it becomes a haven for rodents and other roaming animals.
We appreciate everyone's help with this issue.
Thank you.
