Updates to note:
The property will be having leak repair done 2/19/24 starting at 8am. The goal is for only lots 1-12 to be affected but we cannot ensure that will be the case the whole time as they are doing a "Jameson" to determine the exact leak location and may determine more is needed. Please reach out to Brandi at 717-715-0030 with questions.
Each home gets 1 car parking spot within the gate. Additional cars within the gate, or in the wrong parking spot, will be towed at the owner's expense.
Tiny Estates Community Meeting 2/8 Notes:
There are no known leaks on the property. We were notified by the township that the property usage is higher than expected and based on usage at times like 3am, we are working to isolate why. The meter coming into the property and halfway through the park both read the same and are higher pressure than we’ve seen in previous years. That being said, some tenants are noticing lower than usual pressure and we have purchased gauges and usage meters to determine pressure at individual sites as well as usage to better isolate why. Suggestions on finding the cause are welcome!
We will request an increased frequency on both the trash and the recycling
Seth Energy will be coming every 60 days to fill tanks. We will notify everyone when they are planned to be on site and if that frequency has any planned changes. Their policy is to always fill anything less than 70% full to 85% (they do not fill tanks to 100% as they must leave space in the tank) so those who have varying use do not have to be concerned!
We have worked with both Arborist and Monster Tree Service in the past for tree assessment and removal. We will speak to them about coming back out for another assessment and then branch pruning. Tenants will receive a notice of when that would be upon scheduling.
5. Road Visibility Issues
Requested items were sticky reflectors for the road to facilitate a safer walkway at night, a mirror on the tree by Virgo and 2 snow plow stakes at the entrance for seeing the drive at night. We will order and install- feedback upon install is welcome (please provide it to us directly)
A request for a larger package dropbox was noted but reasoning was known so we tabled the discussion. Mail is sorted every 1-2 days and lost mail is not something we can control as the delivery we receive is what we sort. Those desiring more consistent access/ delivery/ volume of mail are advised to get a PO box they can access at their convenience.
We sprayed with Ortho last year on the weeds in the rocks and it has a 2 hour dry time. We will advise again this season on the days and times that will take place. If you have a different spray suggestion we are happy to consider it- please let us know.
Those with questions are advised to contact Abby or Brandi. We surveyed each home prior to the cold season and let homeowners know if we had a concern with their setup. Winterizing, hoses, septic piping above the ground, etc. is the responsibility of the homeowner after the home’s setup.
We are establishing a website tab for 24/7 access to updates. Tenants can go to that tab to see the latest information (similar to what was on the weekly emails) for a more timely reference. If you have a question not addressed there then let us know but please check there first. If someone brings something up to you, check the page for answers or let us know the answer is not found there!
Slack will be added to this site for community conversations in one place as well!
The laundry space cannot be hooked up until DEP approves the new lots out front and the electrical permit is approved for the install of the laundry/ mail shell as well as the entry gate. Upon approval and lot completion the unit can move out front to be placed next to the new entry gate location for package drop off, mail and laundry!
Brandi will be doing a basic “car pass” and providing them in the mail slots for people to use. You are welcome to make copies if you have multiple cars that share your spot or park in the overflow. Note that cars without tags or cars with a tag in the wrong lot parking space will start to be towed for safety and in order to ensure the rules are followed.
12. Dog Poop
Should you notice anyone creating an ongoing poop issue we ask that you send proof of who is doing it (you can remain anonymous) so we can issue pet agreement violations as needed. We recommend you speak up and ask the person to address the concern first.
Those who have progressive must either be NOAH certified homes or policies previously instated (before their policy which now requires NOAH certifications). If you do not renew your old policy for a non-NOAH home, you will likely have to switch to American Modern or another provider which can be slightly higher in cost. We are working with the insurance broker to determine next steps for several tenants that expressed questions.
Upcoming Meetings: 1st Sunday of each month at 2pm (we will try this for a few months and see how it goes). 3/3/24 at 2pm
Slack Channel- coming soon!
