I’d first like to say thank you to those who have emailed to let me know how great you think the new fence on Silver Sage looks. I like hearing from you. The good and the bad. But it is especially nice to hear the good. You have no idea how much that means to me.
I wanted to give you all an update on where we are with the fences and stain vs paint.
The next section of fencing to be replaced will be Redwood Trail and Park Vista, south of Basswood. We have hired Rustic Fence to do the work. They are the same company that did the Silver Sage fence. We will begin with Redwood Trail. The tentative start date is Wednesday, December 9. They will start with the section closest to Alliance Church and move East to the end of the PID 6 fencing. They will then cross the street and start at the school and move West to Grand Teton. I will be instructing our landscape company to trim the bushes and trees that are overhanging the PID fence beginning Monday, December 7. If you have any landscape that is attached to the fence, it will need to be removed as the fence will be coming down. Also if you have anything that is up against the fence, please move it about 2 feet from the fence line while the work is being done. Rustic does not leave back yards exposed overnight. They will remove a section and replace it the same day. They will be placing door hangers on the doors of the homes that back up the PID fencing to make them aware of the upcoming replacements.
I am researching other options for the fence color now. I’ve heard from several of you requesting a brown or cedar stain. This is a decision the Board would have to make. I will bring this up to them at our next meeting. However, if they agree, we wouldn’t be able to make this change right away. We have a lot fences in the PID and we have to stick to a budget. Our goal is to get as many fences repaired and replaced as we can with the budget we have set aside this year. If we were to change the color now we would have mismatched fences. I don’t want that to happen. So what we are doing now is exploring a stain in the gray color. Rustic says they can match the color exactly using a stain instead of paint. They are bringing a sample to me that I can show to the Board. If the Board agrees, we will move forward with staining them gray instead of painting. Once the fences are back up to par and all replaced and repaired, then we can explore the option of staining a nice brown or cedar color. If the Board decides to go this route, we would set aside money in the budget to make sure we could do all or at least the most visible fences at the same time. That way we don’t have fences in the PID that are two completely different colors.
I do want to thank you for letting me know your thoughts. I have shared them with the Board, as I know they will want to know what the residents are saying.
I’m very excited to start seeing some major improvements to the fencing in the coming months. We will do as much as we can before the weather gets too cold. Then we will start again in the spring.
Thank you again and please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or comments. My contact information is:

The landscaping company is in the process of completing a comprehensive inspection of our irrigation system as well as making repairs daily. We have already been receiving positive feedback regarding their progress in mowing and clean-up of all the park areas. They will be continuing to address all areas of concern and will present a future plan for improvement recommendations to the board for review and approval.
Please know that we will continue to work diligently to correct any and all concerns and immediately address the quality repairs that need to be made. Thank you for your continued patience and support.

Suspicious Activity Awareness
It can be difficult to determine when to report something suspicious. People most familiar with a given environment are in the best position to determine whether or not something is out of the ordinary. Use common sense and read the guidelines.
