2021 Athletic Field Project Update
BrightView Landscapes began the replacement of the irrigation system at the Athletic Field this week. Barring any setbacks, they will complete this work, along with replacement of some of the sod in some areas throughout the field, by the end of the month.
2021 Bridge Re-decking Project
On Wednesday, Expert Marine Construction began re-decking the bridge that serves as a connector bridge for the residents between Paisley Court and Raindance Court.This community path bridge was re-decked in 2007 and has shown significant signs of deterioration over the last year.
After Expert Marine removed the deck boards from the bridge on Wednesday, they discovered that the 72 stringers also required replacement as they are spillting and/or are broken off in several areas. Expert Marine submitted a change order in the amount of $7,200 which will be absorbed through the project contingency and opertaional funds.
During this project, all residents need to use the adjacent bridge between Tanaquay Court and Pine Shadow Court. Barring any delays, the bridge is anticipated to be completed by Monday, April 19.

Southeast Pipe began the 2021 storm drain repairs along Landings Way North at Romerly Road this week.The contractor will utilize a cured in place piping (CIPP) lining technology to line the pipes with a fiber glass material that has a guaranteed lifespan of 40 years. The utilization of the CIPP technology allows for a less intrusive impact on the property owners in and around the repair areas along with a significant reduction in restoration costs and time. This project was approved by the Public Works Committee, Finance Committee and Board in March and will be funded through Capital Reserves.
