Property Management

April 1, 2020,

To all SVTA owners & tenants via email from board of directors

Hope this finds everyone well, remaining inside as much as possible, practicing both physical & social distancing when walking outside or accessing the beach for exercise. Please make note of your neighbors; especially those who live alone that you may not have seen. A phone call or knock on the door to check on them periodically would be helpful.

Palmer Management is closed. All property managers are working from home. Sal Garfi and Jennifer are in the office for limited times. Please leave messages with their call center. (203-288-8448) A Board member is in contact with Sal or Jen, daily. In a real emergency, call any
Board member.

All meetings scheduled for the clubhouse are suspended until further notice. The building is no longer accessible as it is not possible to maintain a sterile environment. The Board will continue to meet and communicate, regarding operations, via a "Zoom" type meeting or other electronic devices as needed. Minutes will be recorded when any action is taken and posted.

The Spring cleanup has started and will continue through first week in April. Milford Land's crews will be here installing pre-emergent weed and fertilizer treatments. (flags are posted at mail boxes & around the community) Mulch installation is scheduled for install along Merwin
Ave and on the fronts of individual lots as usual later in April. The hydrangeas were not cut down last fall and are now in bud. Matt will remove any dead wood after the plants leaf out. Fred Kirkham will activate the irrigation at the proper time. The power washing of all buildings (this
is a 2 day event) will be done later in April and you will receive an email notice prior to the start. Reminder ! All outside ornamental loose items should be removed. All windows and doors/sliders shut. All grill & furniture removed away from the buildings and NO VEHICLES left in driveways. Windows/sliders will be soaped & rinsed as part of this service. This is not a true window washing event and some glass surfaces may retain spots. All other improvement
projects will be spaced out through the summer months.

Walking the village is starting to look like a new spring; we surely need it. The Magnolias and red cherry trees have bloomed, the white Yokinos are next followed by the pears. The grass will get green, the lots mulched and the buildings refreshed. Residents will be planting their flowers. Robins have been seen & some mallard ducks both male & female have returned to no doubt have ducklings.

As we approach this special renewal season of Easter and Passover we wish Peace and good Health to all and the hope for our ability to weather this storm and get through this difficult time together.
