Alarm system Open Letter – Please respond with a short Yes or No

You Received an Open Letter on the Alarm System

If you have already responded by email that’s great.  If you would rather just respond as a comment online, this is just another way to respond.

The purpose of this post and the letter is to hear from our 228 residents about their desire to investigate changing or maintaining the current CC&Rs related to the Alarm System monitoring.  

 

The current step is to gather a tally Yay/Nay responses

Questions or Next steps should be addressed in an email to Jan Landis, not on the website.

We will give a report after two weeks of Yay/Nay responses received.

Information:  If you have a landline, you may be connected to the Alarm monitoring system that is managed by Wilsonville Lock and Security, they could not tell me who was or was not.

You may want to call Wilsonville Lock and Security to see if you are truly connected

 

Irrigation Issues

 

Please note that the irrigation water is filled with algae and debris, which is clogging our filters and sprinklers. It’s taking up most of the time of our Irrigation Specialist just keeping the sprinklers running. Until this condition clears up we may not be able to respond to regular irrigation requests in a timely manner.

We ask that the residents please hand water if they have plants in danger.  

We appreciate your patience as we work thru this problem.

Please contact Steve Chinn at schinno@gmail.com or 503-682-0234 if you have any questions and/or need more information.

RV Lot to be repaved next week

Please note that the RV lot is getting repaved next week, starting Sunday July 16th.  All RVs will need to be removed from the RV lot during that time.

In addition to the sewer line construction, we will also all need to be more tolerant and patient with our neighbors, especially those who have RVs that may need to use some of our Guest parking spaces while the RV lot is closed.

It is nice to see the continuation of improvements to our neighborhood and appreciate your understanding during these disruptions to our normal routines.

spraying for Bluegrass BillBug and Crane Fly – Extended to Tuesday the 20th

Bluegrass billbug larvae

Crane Fly larvae

Garron Grounds will be spraying for both Bluegrass Billbug and Crane Fly on Thursday and Friday.  It is best to not let children or pets on the lawn after treatment, until the lawn has been watered and is dry.   Thursday will be a perfect day for them to spray, as the weather channel has promised rain, followed by a few days of dry weather.

Both the Billbug and the Crane Fly eat the roots and the crowns of the grass, causing brown spots within the lawn.  After the spraying is complete Garron will be fertilizing and re-seeding to ensure that we don’t have brown spots (caused by the pest) for long

Aphids and Ladybugs

Also, if you notice bags on some trees:

Garron is releasing 300,000 lady bugs.  Bags filled with ladybugs are attached to the trees, the lady bug  climbs up the tree and eats the aphids attached to the tree.  You may remember last year some sap dripping off trees in our area.  We had some on our patio that looked like drops of rain or sprinkler spray.  According to Ken (Garron Grounds) a aphid can eat 50 times their weight and cause your trees to respond with a dripping sap.

What’s great about the Aphid treatment, is that it is a considered a “Beneficial insect” as they will not hurt the bees that we need.  Ken is really excited to use Ladybugs, instead of insecticides.
