We came across an old photo of Park Laurel, with the North Tower undergoing construction while the bank was still at the corner of Sixth and Laurel.
There are some updates and important information that you may be interested in below.
Proposed Common Area Enhancements
At the open session meeting this week, the Board reviewed the survey results, emails, and verbal feedback from the Community. You have been heard loud and clear.
A very strong percentage of the Community was not interested in the proposed changes and the feedback we received indicated that the residents like the physical elements of the lobby the way that they are.
The Board closed the file on the changes proposed by the Architectural Review Committee at Tuesday’s meeting.
Thank you for your input. We greatly appreciate it.
Leak Detection System
At the meeting on Tuesday, the ballot inspectors opened and tabulated the ballots for the leak detection system. The amendment and expense measures were approved by the community.
The leak detection system will likely be installed by March of 2020, which gives us time to officially record the amendment, and have electricity and the system’s network installed on every floor.
Again, we appreciate your time and consideration for this project, which will hopefully save a lot of money and inconvenience for you in the future.
The ballots for the Association’s annual meeting and election are on their way to you in the mail.
The Annual Meeting will be Thursday, November 21st with registration opening at 5:00 pm.
The Association will have a candidate forum on Monday, November 4th at 5:00 pm in the North Tower lobby. This will give you an opportunity to hear from the three candidates that are running for two seats.
Holiday Party – Save the Date
The Social Committee has another wonderful holiday party planned for the Community. You will receive a formal invitation from the Committee, but we thought you may want to save the date now. The party will be on Thursday, December 5th at 6:00 pm in the South Tower lobby.
We are less than a month away from the service elevators being turned over. That date is estimated to be Monday, November 11th.
The State’s inspections are scheduled for the week prior, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, we will have those elevators returned back on schedule.
With that said, the next set of elevators would be taken out of service on Tuesday, November 12th. Those elevators would be for the 01/02 and the 05/08 stacks.
This week, the new cables were run in the hoist way and connected to the cabs. A few photos of the work are attached for your viewing pleasure.
We hope that you have a great weekend!
If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us at any time.
All my best,
