Trash/Dumping in Common Areas
There has been year to year increase of large item dumping and house gutting in the common areas throughout The Timbers. This can occur at any time but is often now seen at the end of month. The Board continues to try to identify offenders but needs the assistance of all residents to stop this persistent blight on our community. If the dumping continues unabated, the Board will have no other option but to levy special assessments to residents. To prevent this from happening we need your help. If you see someone dumping, please notify East Coast Management immediately so that we can extend the cost directly to the offending residents rather than having to place the burden on the community as a whole..
Remember Trash Away clearly states that they do not take construction waste (toilets, drywall, windows/doors, paint) in the weekly pick-ups. Please do not put this on the curb for normal pick up. If you are doing renovations please make special arrangements for said materials with your contractor, Trash Away, or another trash removal vendor.
After the long cold winter and now windy spring, if everyone could pick up loose trash they find around the neighborhood. Be sure that your garbage bags are properly tied, and loose materials that can blow around are properly weighed down so they don't blow throughout the property.
Finally, with the snow now a memory, be sure to scoop the poop that was hiding on lawns…
PARKING RULES UPDATED
The Timbers Parking Rules and Regulations have been updated effective May 1, 2014. All Timbers residents will receive a copy of the rules in the mail.
Changes include: making sure you are parked evenly in the parking space, updated description of commercial vehicles, and motorcycle parking.
Vehicles without a valid Timbers parking pass parked in ANY parking space after 10:00 pm and before 6:00 am will be towed.
There has been some confusion with residents regarding un-numbered parking spaces. Quoting rule 1.2 of the Timbers Parking Rules and Regulation:
“Each home without a garage will be assigned a single parking space as near as possible to their home. A number corresponding to the address number shall be painted on the curb to designate the owner using the space. All other parking spaces will be available for use by any properly tagged vehicle.”
There are no assigned visitor parking spaces. Un-numbered spaces are for use by all Timbers residents with Valid parking passes.
Please be reminded that towing will be strictly enforced.
If you are towed you will have to contact Dominion Towing and pay the fee to get your vehicle back.
