COMMUNITY-WIDE PAVEMENT CRACK SEALING
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, THROUGH FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11

Starting Monday, November 7th and continuing through Friday, the 11th, the Association's contractor, Propave, will begin sealing pavement cracks throughout the community. This work does not require that you move your cars. Sealed cracks may be driven on. You may experience brief delays trafficking if the equipment is operating in the middle of the street, but you will not be prevented from driving on the streets.

Thank you for your patience while we complete this important work!




NO POLITICAL SIGNS PLEASE!

Because this is an election year, we want to remind our owners that the Association does not permit the posting of political signs on our Common Grounds or on the exterior surface of the house or in windows. (Bylaws, Article XXIII, Part II. 24. Signage) Common Grounds are all areas beyond the walls of the house and outside patio walls.

The only exceptions to the signage prohibition are security alarm decals, children's safe house signs, and those signs which have Board approval.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding that all Association members are subject to the same rules and restrictions as defined in the governing documents.

2016 RESERVE STUDY

The 2016 community reserve study has been posted.




CORRECTION

A resident circulated a flyer labeled "Charlestown Crier" on/about 22 July. Among other items it contained a false report on a pending lawsuit. He stated that the original lawsuit was terminated on appeal which is true but he further stated that the Board said the resident has filed another lawsuit. That is not true. As has been previously announced our insurance company is defending the COA in this matter and the parties have begun an effort to settle all aspects of the situation through mediation.

Reminder: COA Board of Directors meetings as well as committee meetings are open to all and we encourage residents to attend. Meeting schedules may be found on the COA website (www.charlestowncoa.org) or in the Chronicle.
