Clubhouse, Gym and Sauna closing
Posted on Mar 17th, 2020 Comments (0)
The Squire Green at Deerfield Ponds HOA Clubhouse, Gym and Sauna Will Be Closed Starting Wednesday March 17th Until Further Notice.
 
The first COVID-19 (coronavirus) patients were diagnosed in Dutchess County this past week. The local medical community, as well as county, state and federal health agencies are anticipating the virus will spread over the next several weeks.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are therefore CLOSING THE CLUBHOUSE/GYM and SAUNA to all residents until further notice starting Wednesday March 17th, 2020. If conditions allow the facilities to be re-opened, the Board will respond accordingly.
As of Saturday, March 14, the Dutchess County Department of Health reported four positive COVID-19 cases. Government agencies have already ordered the closure of public schools and the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, stated on Sunday that he would like to see “a dramatic diminution of the personal interaction that we see” in public places like bars and restaurants.
It is with these actions and recommendations in mind that the Board of Managers has decided to shut the clubhouse effective Wednesday morning.
Please take all necessary precautions to protect yourself, loved ones, and neighbors. The New York State Department of Health https://health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/coronavirus/ and the Centers for Disease Control https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html are valuable sites for the most up to date information. If you are quarantined or asked to self-isolate, please follow the Department of Health requirements.
This pandemic is impacting all of us in various ways. Please be careful, support your neighbors, and stay well.

Water conservation
Posted on Jul 24th, 2019 Comments (0)
Please be advised that our water operator has indicated that we needed to switch on another well as our community's daily water usage tripled mainly due to rampant lawn watering.  It may not seem that we are in a drought situation because of all the rain but our water system was not designed to support lawn watering; It’s capacity was based on normal residential potable use. Mandatory restrictions are in effect immediately and noncompliance may result in fines being imposed.  
 
EVEN NUMBERED HOMES: Except for weekends, residents may water their lawns and plantings on even numbered calendar days. ODD NUMBERED HOMES: Except for weekends, residents may water their lawns and plantings on odd numbered calendar days. The hours for watering are: 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM & 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM Residents are prohibited from car washing and watering their lawns on weekends. The use of handheld watering cans is unrestricted.

Chronicle of the Board of Directors 
 
July 2019
 
 
DATES FOR COMMUNITY BARBECUE AND TAG SALE BEING FINALIZED: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
At the last HOA meeting the Board of Directors approved a community end of summer barbecue in September. The Board is also hoping to have a community tag sale behind the Clubhouse in September as well, depending on community interest. VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED to help make these events successful and encourage similar events in the future. If you are interested in participating and/or helping out with either or both events please email HOA President Eric Gerard at eric@greatink.com
 
 
ANYONE INTERESTED IN PICKLEBALL?
Interest has been expressed from a long-time resident in adding a Pickleball court to one of the current tennis courts. What is Pickleball you may ask? It’s a four-player game that’s kind of like tennis but on a smaller court using paddles and big wiffleballs and is growing in popularity. Click here if you want to learn more about it.  Pawling Recreation has added an indoor court in Lakeside Park open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to noon in July and you can reserve a court at $2 per town resident/$5 per non-resident by calling 845-855-1131. Courts are also available in Brewster at the Hardscrabble Club for $4 for members/$8 for non-members and at the Taconic Sport & Racket Club in Hopewell Junction, also for an undisclosed fee. As our tennis courts are in need of refurbishing, the Board is considering adding lines for Pickleball when the work is done if enough people show interest. If interested you can email resident Joyce Krieger at KJoyce888@gmail.com or the Board President.
 
 
PROBLEMS WITH MINI-BIKES AND ATVs: Management has received many complaints about kids and adults riding minibikes and ATVs on community roads, across common lawn areas and along the hiking trails. Residents are reminded that according to our Rules and Regulations, Rule #4 on Page One: “The use of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles, mopeds, go-peds and other motorized scooters is prohibited on The Properties.” Residents and their children who are observed using these vehicles will receive a one-time warning letter followed by a $50 fine for EACH reported violation. And although Kings Way is not a private road, these vehicles are also banned for use on streets in New York State by the Department of Motor Vehicles, which states: “You cannot operate these devices on sidewalks, public streets or highways in New York State.” Residents who observe violators using these vehicles in our community are encouraged to contact Spinnaker Management at 845-895-8122 or email details (time, location and resident name or address if known) to Property Manager Doris Steele at doris@spinnakerusa.com. You can also contact the Dutchess County Sheriff at (845) 486-3800
 
 
PARKING RULES: PLEASE TRY TO BE CONSIDERATE Speaking of Rules and Regulations, The Board has received several complaints recently along Saratoga Street, Kings Way and Mohawk Trail of residents parking more than their allotted two cars per household for extended periods of time or parking inconsiderately in such a way that occupies more than one parking space. The Board recently explored addressing this second item by adding horizontal parking lines in the areas where to head-on parking spots are not available, however it was determined by the contractor that by drawing these lines in adherence to the minimum NYS guidelines we would actually REDUCE the number of parking spaces available in these areas, so the idea was abandoned.
 
Inconsiderate parking and people not cleaning up after their animals are consistently the top two issues that management receives complaints about. Both issues are hard to address and being considerate to your neighbors is the always the best and cost-efficient solution, as courtesy is free.
 
Rule #5 says, among other parking restrictions, “No more than two automobiles shall be parked upon Association maintained parking areas by any Home Owner, his guests and invitees for a period of more than 24 hours without the prior consent of the Association.” This rule is in place because of the limited number of parking spaces available. The Board recognizes that from time to time homeowners will exceed this limit as families grow and teens start driving and when multiple residents work. For now, we ask that residents please be considerate and aware that we live in a “community.” If you have more than two cars please park the additional vehicles in the Clubhouse parking lot or in designated visitors’ spots. (The Board is considering additional measures to mark these spots more clearly.) If you are having guests please ask them to follow these rules. If your guests have mobility issues, please discuss with your neighbors.
 
There is also no provision for assigned parking in our rules, which if enacted would also present administration and enforcement costs, such as registering vehicles, assigning yearly sticker permits, issuing tickets and collecting fines. As parking areas are considered and maintained as common areas, there is no such thing as “my spot(s),” although townhome residents are encouraged to comply with the two-car rule as detailed and be considerate of their neighbors, especially the elderly and those with small children.
 
Rule #4 does stipulate that all vehicles “must be registered, inspected and insured according to New York State law. In addition, all vehicles must be registered with the Homeowners association, including color, make, model, year and plate numbers. Non-compliant vehicles parked on Common areas for more than 72 hours are subject to fines” and “may be removed at the owner’s expense.” Currently the HOA does not collect this information, but if these problems persist that rule may have to be invoked.
 
Enforcement of these rules are difficult for management to address without hiring security, which previous Boards have determined to be cost-prohibitive in keeping our HOA dues relatively low as compared to other communities in the area. The Board is considering measures to create additional parking where possible, however these paving projects would add significantly to townhome common charges, something we endeavor to avoid.
 
 
Please be informed that a draft of this Chronicle has been forwarded to the Board for review and comment before circulating it to you. The Secretary will attest to its accuracy.

Paving
Posted on May 31st, 2019 Comments (0)

The Paving contractor has indicated that he will begin the paving of the tennis court, clubhouse and gym parking areas on Monday, June 3rd at 7AM. These areas will be sectioned off on Sunday, June 2, 2019 after the pool closes. If you are storing a car in the tennis court area you will need to move the vehicle by Sunday, June 2, 2019 or we will have no choice but to tow at the owners expense.  Please forgive the late notice but we have been dealing with Mother Nature and she has not been cooperating. The Gym will remain open but you will need to navigate around the contractor. If you need assistance please contact Doris at (845) 895-8122 or reply to the e-mail. Thank you

Pool Opening

We would like to thank everyone for cooperating with the seal coating project. Once we hear back from the Contractor we will inform you of the anticipated paving project to include several areas within the complex as well as the tennis court parking lot, clubhouse parking lot and gym roadway. For those of you who were waiting for your driveway to be seal coated today that did not get done, a new date will be forthcoming. The contractor wanted to be sure the roadways were done before the anticipated rain.  

 

If you are interested in having your private driveway cleaned and seal coated, please contact Paul from Northeast Paving & Seal coating directly at 845-701-6013.  If you are interested in repaving the contractor will need to look at your driveway for pricing.

Medium driveway –                 2 to 4 cars                     $150.00

Streetlight Outages

Front Entrance
Posted on Nov 16th, 2017
Our landscaper recently took advantage of the mild fall temperatures and end of season nursery prices to transform our front entrance.   The existing flowers were transplanted to a better suited location around our tennis courts which allowed for the planting of new more organized shrubbery at our front entrance.  The transformation will provide more year round color to this crucial area and only add to the overall aesthetic value of our community.

Labor Day Weekend

Emerald Ash Borer
Posted on Aug 23rd, 2017
Last summer, it was discovered that many of the ash trees in our community were infested with the emerald ash borer (EAB).  EAB is an invasive Asian beetle which infests and kills North American ash trees.  Any ash tree left untreated will usually die within 2 to 4 years of being infested.  In order to prevent the further loss of these treasured shade trees in our community, the Board enlisted the services of SavATree to continue treating the ash trees on common property on a yearly basis.  The HOA is also asking single family homeowners who have ash trees on their property to act now and contact SavATree or another tree care professional.
Black Bear Sighting
Posted on Jul 11th, 2017
A resident just reported late yesterday seeing a black bear in the area of Cushing Green South.  Black bears will take advantage of almost any readily available food source, including bird feeders and garbage.  To prevent encounters between bears and humans, residents should never intentionally feed bears and should take every precaution to discourage bears from seeking out food sources in our community.  Please click here to learn more about avoiding conflicts with black bears.
Fourth of July 2017
