SPRING UPDATE

SPRING IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY

Spring cleanups have been completed earlier this month.  You will hear the lawn mowers weekly & the irrigation will be turned on shortly. With the warmer temperatures that past week or so you will notice that the perennials have begun to bloom.

As a reminder, since this is the time of the year that our owners begin staying outside, please be considerate of others and remember to curb your pets. Please do not allow your dog to urinate on your neighbor’s property or on common grassy areas.  Do not place bags of dog feces in any community garbage cans (i.e. by the pool).  Instead dispose of your animal waste in your own containers at your home.

For the safety of all residents, please be sure to keep your dogs on a leash at all times when outside your home. We have a lot of residents that enjoy walking and riding their bicycles throughout the community and do not wish to have a dog attack them while enjoying their community. 

Springtime is a very busy season where we all work together to enhance the community.  Seasonal flowers get planted, lawns begin turning a deep green, and homeowners begin beautifying their individual flowerbeds.    However, if you would like to make any exterior modifications to your home and/or your property, a modification request form with a hold harmless agreement MUST be submitted for Board approval prior to any work taking place.

Please be aware that speeding, tailgating and blowing through stop signs can result in serious vehicular accidents and injury.  Remember to drive carefully in your community at all times and watch for pedestrians, joggers and biker riders.

Communications – Please direct all communications to our office whether it’s via telephone, e-mail (remember, we have set up an email just for your community), website service request, or regular mail.  Please be considerate to the board members and their families by not calling or visiting Board members at home as they are volunteers.  We look forward to seeing you out & around in the community.

FALL REMINDERS

Aerating & seeding has been completed in most communities.  When this type of treatment is done to the lawns, they should not be cut for 2 weeks.  Thus, if you do not see the landscapers on their regular day, it is probably because they are allowing the seed to germinate before they again mow the lawn.  Also, all irrigation systems will be closed & blown out for the winter by October 31st

Halloween is quickly approaching.  Please remember that decorations cannot be attached to the home & that blow up decorations are not permitted until the final fall cleanup is completed.  You may decorate your home for the season by hanging items from your front door, or placing hay bales, scarecrows, ghosts, witches, black cats & pumpkins on your walkway. 

For the safety of all residents, please be sure to keep your dogs on a leash at all times when outside your home. We have a lot of residents that enjoy walking and riding their bicycles throughout the community and do not wish to have a dog attack them while enjoying their community. 

During this time of the year it gets dark a lot earlier in the afternoon.  Please be mindful & drive the speed limit in your community.  Remember to watch for children & per walkers.

Leaves have begun to fall from the trees.  Especially during a rain storm, the leaves make the road very slippery. Shortly, the landscaper will begin cleaning them up on a regular basis, but again, please be careful.

Disconnect all outside hoses.  Shut the water off to your outside spigots, then open the spigot a ½ turn to allow any water inside the pipe to drain out.  This will prevent your pipe from freezing.

Holiday Greetings

Holidays are a time to reflect on the past, live for the present, and dream about the future. Remember to be thankful for what you have, as there are others much less fortunate.   From everyone in our office, we would like to wish all of our homeowner’s peace, joy, and happiness.  May your celebrations be surrounded with family, friends and fond memories!

 

Please be informed that our office will be closing at noon on Christmas Eve and be closed on Christmas Day, December 24th and 25th.  For the New Year our office will be closing at 3pm on New Year’s Eve and be closed all day New Year’s Day, December 31st, and January 1st.


We wish all of our homeowners a Happy Holiday and a Safe and Healthy New Year!! 

 

From,

Everyone at Choice Professional Management

We will be closing our office at 3 PM on Wednesday, November 23th so that we can begin gathering & securing all our personal items to be ready for the movers on Friday morning.  We will be reopened on Monday, November 30th around noon time.  We were hoping for Monday morning at 9 AM, but cablevision cannot transfer our phone numbers until Monday mid- morning.

Our new location is 525 West Jericho Turnpike, Smithtown, NY 11787.  Our phone & fax numbers will remain the same & we have already informed the post office with a forwarding address.  We will also be changing the return address on the monthly common charges statements, or any new coupon booklets we order.  All vendors will be notified of the change & we are confident that the move and transition will be seamless. 

The move will allow our company to hire additional staff and also become better organized in order to serve our owners.  If it were not for your recommendations, this move would not be possible.  We appreciate all those who have given our name as a recommendation to members they know in other communities.  Your support and trust in our company is something we are truly thankful for.

 


We wish all our homeowners a Happy & Healthy Thanksgiving!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie

Peak Hurricane Season

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 with the peak period from early August through the end of October.

TOP 10 Hurricane Tips for the Home:

 1. First, get important papers (social security cards, birth certificates, titles, etc) and special photos in order and secured in plastic.

 2. Think ahead and take video or photos of your property before you leave. This will help with insurance.

3. If staying with relatives is not an option, consider booking a room in a hotel, motel or emergency shelter in a nearby town or state. Be sure to have directions printed out in advance and leave them in your car. Fill your car's gas tank.

 4. Think ahead for your pets. Try to find a place to go which can accommodate your pets or find boarding for them.

 5. Designate a spot, such as the hall closet, to keep a bag of clothes for each person in the household. Make sure to include sleeping gear.

 6. Along with overnight clothes, consider stocking your Hurricane Kit with the following: extra cash, generator , batteries, flash lights, battery operated radio/television, bottled water, toilet paper, first aid kit, non-perishable foods such as cereal or crackers, canned goods, a can opener, a small cooler, candles, prescription medicines; and if you have small children-diapers, baby wipes, formula, baby food.

  7. Count on the power being out for at least a day or two. Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that the food will last longer. Have some cash on hand.

 8. Plywood is a 'hot' commodity for those of you who decide to stay. Boarding up windows that will take the brunt of the wind and rain is a wise decision. Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (lawn furniture, toys, etc.) Turn off propane tanks and unplug small appliances.

 9. If you decide to tough out the storm, stay downwind in your home. This means if the wind is hitting the living room windows, go to the room opposite the living room.

 10. Finally, STAY INSIDE.  However tempting it may be to videotape or take photos of the storm, be sure to shoot from indoors-where it's safe.

The Beginning of Spring

Spring cleanups will begin in April.  It is our hopes to have everyone started before the holidays. Irrigation will be turned on shortly thereafter, and soon you will hear the roar of the lawn mowers.  We had a very rough winter so it may take more time than usual for all plants to begin growing again. 

As a reminder, since our owners will again begin to venture outside, please be considerate of others and remember to curb your pets. Please do not allow your dog to urinate on your neighbor’s property or on common grassy areas.  Do not place bags of dog feces in any community garbage cans (i.e. by the pool).  Instead dispose of your animal waste in your own containers at your home.

Halloween Tips

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!

Start bundling up, since the warm weather is behind us. With that said, the sun is setting earlier therefore it starts to get dark around 6:30 now. Winter is on its way along with all the joy of holidays that come with it.

 Halloween is quickly approaching! Soon children in costumes will be running to all houses to collect their sweets. So please take extra caution while driving. We ask parents to make sure their kid(s) are dress appropriately. Make sure they are in reflective gear and have a flashlight while trick-or-treating at night. We also ask for parents and kid(s) to be alert and please make sure they’re supervised, as Halloween can also be a dangerous celebration.


 

DON’T FORGET: Turn your clocks back on Nov 1st before you retire for the night.

Wishes for much success


It is with both a heavy heart, but a happy heart that we must say good bye to Danielle.  Danielle has worked together with me in this business for almost 11 years.  She began her 1st year of high school as a file clerk.  She then moved onto answering phones, routing calls & became involved with learning about our communities.

As she grew with the company, she also grew into an intelligent, sophisticated young woman.  She worked her way up to Financial Manager.  Danielle knows all facets of this business and is the person I rely on the most for anything involving the office.  Losing Danielle will be like I am losing my right arm.

However, I have watched Danielle work harder than anyone I know to complete her ultimate task.  While working with me, she also attended college.  I am proud to say that Danielle has her doctorate in Physical Therapy.  She has already been working in that field and will be leaving us to fulfill her dream.  She was offered a position in where she will be instrumental in setting up a woman’s clinic with a renowned Physical Therapist.  Words alone cannot describe my thanks for all the years she gave us and my best wishes for her future success in the field she has always dreamed of being a part of.  I am confident that Danielle will not only succeed, but be able to attain anything that she desires in the future.

Homeowner Flooding

If you are a homeowner of a condominium or homeowner’s association and you’re experiencing water intrusions and/or flooding of your home and have sustained sufficient damage, please immediately contact your insurance company.  They will assist you in providing information on a water restoration company. 

We also ask that you contact our office after speaking with your insurance company.  We are required to obtain details and determine if a work order must be written to possibly investigate if an exterior repair is needed.

Please note the majority of the island was affected by this storm and received between 8-12” of rain since midnight which resulted in flash flooding and caused closure of major roadways. We are keeping you updated, to keep you safe.

Thank you in advance for your patience with this process.

Upcoming Snow Storm Feb. 13th

The upcoming snow storm is to start in the early morning hours tomorrow. It will start slowing building heavier in the morning hours of 6am to 9am during the course of the morning rush hour. There may be as much as 2-4 inch accumulation depending on the location before turning over to rain with the increase in temperature. It is to rain all day and as the temperature drops in the latter part towards evening it will turn to snow again and continue into the early Friday hours for perhaps an inch or two.

Please be reminded that this particular weather pattern will take place for over 36 hours so please be patient with your snow contractors efforts to keep everything plowed and cleaned.

BE THANKFUL

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

SPRING IS IN THE AIR!! }i{

Spring is perhaps the most welcomed season by everyone in the Northeast. With the winter snow behind us, we can all look foward to the flower blossoms, green grass, trees budding, and seeing yourneighbors walking about.

 

As Spring and Summer approaches, many kids will be playing outside again. Please watch out for childern! Supervision for kids is necessary, especially for childern 8 years and younger. Play toys and bikes must be picked up and put away everynight. As well, chalked must be washed off the streets and driveways everynight.

 

PLEASE DO NOT FEED WILD ANIMALS! Placing food out for feral cats or wild racoons to eat is prohibited. Doing so wil lcause them to come back more often and possibly make shelter under patios.

Owners are responsible for their pets. Pets must be leashed while walking throughout the community. Solid waste must be picked up and disposed of. Pets are not allowed to urniate, defecate, or dig on another homeowner's property.

 

Garbage must be placed in your garbage pails, which should be covered at all times to deter animals from getting in and scavenging for food. If it does not fit in the pail, a heavy duty black bag must be used. White kitchen bags (especially contained with food) are not acceptable, since these can be easily torn by animals. You must store your pails behind your home, so it is not visible from the street. Recyclables must be cut into mangageable size and taped/tied down, so not to be blown by the wind.

 

Remember to submit a modification form before you make any alterations to the exterior of your home. Homeowner's need the board's permission before any alterations or additions take place. This also includes landscape changes.

Irene takes its toll on Communities
Please be informed that all of our communities did sustain tree loss and tree damage; however we are happy to report that we did not have any structural damage. All our communities received emergency service on Sunday so that no one was stranded. Everyone that had a tree blocking a road, leaning on a car or building was removed by Sunday night. We were personally out with the crews to watch this work being done without causing any additional damage. Clean up of all debris, branches, twigs, etc. in all communities will be completed before the weekend.

We at Choice Professional Management want to thank our contractors that were on call during the storm and continually checked in to ensure that every homeowner was attended to. We also appreciate everyone’s patience during the storm and now afterwards while the clean-ups are being performed. We have done everything possible to make sure our homeowners were not inconvenienced by the work that had to be completed.

We also understand that some of our communities may still be without power. Please continue to call LIPA to get an update as to when your area will be “turned on”.

We hope that you will all have a “bright” holiday weekend.

Spring is Approaching
Communities are gearing up for the spring season. The landscapers have all been contacted. Spring clean-ups will be done early this year. They are expected to be completed before the end of March. The first chemical applications will be applied in early April to help the lawn after the severe winter. Additionally, warmer weather brings spring projects for both the community & the homeowner. Please remember, if you plan on doing any alterations to the outside of your home you need to contact management to obtain the proper forms.
