Bluffs 2020 Annual Meeting Follow-Up

Happy New Year’s Silver Lake Bluffs!

2020 Annual Meeting Follow-up

I appreciate your flexibly around our 2020 Annual Meeting. In following with state guidelines, we opted not to have an in-person Annual Meeting. I am writing today in follow up to our Annual Meeting business conducted via mail. We mailed you a packet that included the 2019 annual meeting minutes, question form, and a call for board nominations to fill two available positions. 

  • We did not receive any revisions to the 2019 annual meeting minutes, so they are accepted as written.
  • We received only two nominations to fill the available board member positions, thus a ballot was not necessary. Jeff Baynham and Martha Gettys will be serving 2021-2023 terms. The board had its first 2021 meeting and determined board officer positions:
    • Jeff Baynham – President
    • David Sinodis – Vice President
    • Christian Holobinko -Treasurer
    • Martha Gettys – Secretary
    • Irma McClaurin – At Large 
  • The board has received your feedback regarding quality of the landscaping maintenance. The board provided feedback to our landscape service provider throughout the year hoping to see an improvement in service. At time of renewal, the board felt it was time to make a change. Thus, Silver Lake Bluffs has a new provider, TSI Landscaping for 2021. 

Other Reminders

  • Mulching for the season will begin in early March.
  • Power washing will take place this year. The community is power washed every three years. (This is a correction from email you received.)
  • Trash bins should not be stored curbside after the scheduled pick up has been made; this is Thursday for our neighborhood.  Trash bins should be removed from curbside by no later than 6:00 a.m. the next day at the very latest.
  • It is very important that you submit an Architectural Request Form for any exterior changes you have planned for your home or lot prior to making the change.  All exterior changes must be requested and approved in writing. Violation of the Architectural Review process could result in the homeowner having to remove and/or replace the unapproved change. 

As always, if have a questions or concerns, please contact Omega Association Management at 919-461-0102 or email our assistant community manager, Jessica MacDonald at Jessica@omegamgmt.com.

Regards,

Jeff Baynham
Silver Lake Bluffs HOA President

2020 Mid-Season Pool Update

Download PDF version of this update

We are now about 2/3 of the way through our pool season and have been carefully monitoring both use of the pool and compliance with the special rules we have made during the pandemic. There have been a couple of changes made to the rules and guidelines we want residents to be aware of: 

Change to Guest Policy: In the beginning of the season, a “no guest” policy was adopted; anyone who is not a full-time permanent resident of a home in the neighborhood is considered a guest. Based on the usage counts for the pool we have now amended the guest policy to allow up to 3 guests on weekdays (Monday through Friday). Guests are still not allowed on weekends. We ask that residents register for guest bands (which are black) for guests they would like to bring to the pool. Residents should continue to wear their red wristbands whenever they are in the cabana or pool. 

Change to Monitors: Beginning Monday, August 17th, we will operate with self-registration and sign-in on weekdays; there will continue to be a full-time monitor on-site on weekends. Please follow these guidelines on weekdays:

  • If you are visiting the pool for the first time, we ask that you read the pool rules and guidelines which you will find on the sign-in table, then fill in the registration form with your name and phone number. We also ask that you sign the registration form to acknowledge that you understand and accept the pool rules. Someone from the pool committee will call within 2-3 days to arrange to deliver your pool wristbands directly to you. After registering, please also sign in for your visit on the separate sign in sheet. We are monitoring pool use, so we also ask that you sign out when you leave. 
  • If you are already registered, please sign in on the sign in sheet. We are monitoring pool use, so we also ask that you sign out when you leave. If you are bringing new guests, please note that on the registration form so we know to provide you your guest wristbands. 

Please note that on weekdays we will be sanitizing high touch areas at the pool opening (10 AM) and pool closing (8 PM) only. You will be responsible for making sure you use the provided sanitation station for any additional treatment you wish of high touch areas. Except as noted above, the pool rules and guidelines for occupancy and use remain in force. ALL USE OF THE POOL AND CABANA IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. 

NEW CONTACT OPTION: If you have questions or need further direction regarding the pool, please reach out to the Silver Lake Pool Committee at SilverLakePoolCommittee@gmail.com

Pool Closing Date: The final day the pool will be open in 2020 is Sunday, September 13th

The Silver Lake Community has had a great pool season so far this year and we appreciate all our residents who have made it successful.
