ATTENTION SHAREHOLDERS:  AN ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING PARKING...


In an effort to alleviate parking congestion and optimize shareholder parking availability, parking rules will become strictly enforced at Fairharbor.  We urge all residents to help in the following ways:
  1. Let your visitors know BEFORE they arrive where they are permitted to park.  (Please tell them to enter at the SOUTH GATE.  The parking along the dog walk area on the left is designated as VISITOR PARKING.
  2. Be sure to display your approved, numbered parking sticker in the rear driver's side window.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping to make Fairharbor a safe and enjoyable place to live and visit.  Should you have any questions as to how to obtain a legal parking sticker, please contact the managing agent.

Also, please contact the managing agent if you would like to participate in a committee presently being considered to monitor parking in the community.
NEW SUFFOLK COUNTY LOCAL LAW REGARDING SMOKING BAN IN COMMON AREAS...

The Suffolk County Legislature has approved an amendment to Chapter 754 of the Suffolk County Code which prohibits smoking in common areas of multiple dwelling buildings. The new law is in effect.

Section 754-3 provides that smoking is prohibited in common areas of multiple dwelling buildings and within a fifty (50) foot radius of all entrances, exits, and ventilation intakes to a building.  "Common Areas" is defined as every enclosed or unenclosed area of a multiple dwelling building that residents of more than one unit are entitled to enter or use, including but not limited to, halls, pathways, lobbies, courtyards, stairs, community rooms, playgrounds, gym facilities, parking lots, grassy or landscaped areas, restrooms, laundry rooms, cooking areas and meeting rooms.

Please be advised that this new amendment is now formally included in Fairharbor's House Rules and will be enforced moving forward.

A MESSAGE FROM THE MANAGEMENT CO ...

Some changes in the management company. You can read about it here... 


FAIRHARBOR IS NOW A GATED COMMUNITY ...


The Board has agreed to install automatic gates at both entrances to the community. This decision was made for two main reasons:

Security - Over the last several years, Fairharbor has unwillingly become an overflow parking lot for the Dublin Deck. Despite the merchant's efforts of providing security on the weekends, the problem continues to grow and create an inconvenience and security issue for Fairharbor's residents.  Automated gates will immediately eradicate this ongoing problem.

Property Values - Communities with automated access gates, also known as "Gated Communities," command higher resale prices and retain their values better. Installing automated gates will increase your investment and widen the market for potential buyers now and in the future. 

The automated parking gates will allow all shareholders and invited guests to enter the property effortlessly at all times. Construction will begin in November and take approximately three weeks to complete. The proper use and functions of the gates will be provided prior to operation. There will be no out of pocket expense to the shareholders for this community improvement.



PET COURTESY...

We would like to think common courtesy would be enough in matters of pet waste.  However, since that doesn't seem to be enough for everyone, the House Rules mandate that everyone walk their dogs only in the designated dog walk area (or off-site).   Further, dog walkers are required to pick-up their pet's waste not only in the dog walk area, but also anywhere on the property if your pet has an accident.  Bags are provided for your convenience.  Thank you for your cooperation!


SUGGESTION BOX...

In an effort to further communication and involve shareholders, the Board of Directors will begin utilizing a suggestion box.  It is located at the mailbox kiosk on the SW side and labeled.  The Board appreciates any helpful suggestions to enhance our community.  We ask that any ideas also include possible solutions.  We also ask that suggestions be signed so that we can contact you with any questions.  Unsigned comments will not be considered.  Thank you.

On a previous inspection of the property, it has been noted that mops, brooms, statues, empty planters, bicycle pumps, bicycles, coolers, beach chairs and laundry have been left out on the balconies and patios.

Not only has the comfort and lifestyle of our quiet community been compromised, but from a risk management point of view the lives and safety of our children is at risk. Please speak with your children about the dangers of playing anywhere in the vicinity of traffic.

Outdoor grills of any type may not be stored including but not limited to, balconies, decks and patios.  


MAJOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

As you are probably already aware, Fairharbor has benefitted from many Major Capital Improvements during recent years, none of which resulted in special assessments for our shareholders. These include new roofs, gutters and leaders, completely new paved surfaces (parking lot, sidewalks, curbs), a new laundry room and more.
In the interest of bettering our community, we have made several more improvements over the last few years.
