Neighborhood Watch


Architectural Committee

Requests for re-inspections are coming in and inspections are taking place


Pam Sonneville reported: 
  1. Looking at Sept. 9/10 for the National Wildlife Federation celebratory. Waiting to hear back from NWF to see what date they can make it.

  2. Need approval for Mead for two days of pruning ($4,480)--$2,240 per day.

  3. Stadler finalized their proposal at an amount of $8,203.53. A 1/3 deposit is needed in August totaling $2,735. We'll be installing about 17 trees, 19 shrubs and 450 perennials. The plantings would be beside 1715 Logmill, behind 1526 to 1536 Tanyard Hill Road, between 1335 and 1339 Carlsbad Drive, 1820 Windjammer Way and behind the pool retainer wall. The areas behind Tanyard Hill Road and behind the pool retainer wall run down to a stormwater pond. All these plantings will help to minimize the erosion during events of heavy rain. Both the areas behind Tanyard Hill Road (1526 through 1536) and behind the pool retainer wall near 1820 Windjammer Way run down to dry ponds (Hyde Park and Woodland Hills Travis). Both these pond areas are high priority for the city as stated in the Middle Great Seneca Creek Watershed Study dated June 28, 2013.

    The proposal amount also includes a pallet of rocks which will probably be put over near the 1535 gardens. There's cutting through, and the shrubs are getting broken. We put in for a matching grant from the City but will not hear back about funding until the end of August. If we don't get any money this year, we'll have to cut some things from the proposal.

    We're continuing to remove invasives. So far this year about 30 hrs. of time has been spent on removal.

  4. Receipts totaling $129.43:

    -Gaithersburg Glass Company, 5/5/17, $80 (plexiglass replacement for the pool bulletin board)

    -The Home Depot, $26.80, 6/8/17 (plants, topsoil, bug spray)

    -The Home Depot, $20.55, 6/15/17 (plants, mulch)

    -The Home Depot, $2.08, 6/21/17 (keys for pool office door)


    Dave moves to approve all Grounds receipts; Garfield seconds and the motion is carried unanimously.
