From Naturalist Erin…
So what follows are some ideas. I would teach or hire out to teach all of these classes if I saw a wee bit of interest. And by showing interest I mean sending me an email to Naturalist@BroadlandsHOA.com–my telepathic powers are running low! The grand ideas (mostly stolen from other–less fantastic, yet more established and class offering–nature centers)
For Littles and Middles
Two classes. One for littles (5+) and one for middles (10+)
Two classes. One fore littles (5+) and one for middles (10+)
For Mature-ittles (not sure an age, more of just who is interested)
And then a few clubs that we could generate a local chapter for:
I’m easy to contact. Naturalist@BroadlandsHOA.com. Looking forward to hearing which of these you want at your nature center.
…and see you at the Fall Farm Festival on October 3rd in the Nature Center’s Backyard 10am-12.
Take-Back sites will be collecting unwanted, unneeded or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. You do NOT need to bring medication in the original prescription container. Protect your privacy – put them in another container (a plastic bag) or remove the prescription label.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, abuse and accidental poisonings. Many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.
Nearly 2.5 tons of drugs were collected in the previous nine Take-Back events.
The Broadlands Association Board of Directors is seeking applicants to fill the vacant Board position. This position is for a resident member with a term expiring in early May 2016. Applicant must be an owner in good standing. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please contact Dawne Holz, Association Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, September 30.
Due to scheduling issues, the Modifications Subcommittee will meet on Thursday, September 17, 2015, at 7:00 pm in the Nature Center conference room. (Previously scheduled on Wednesday, September 16)
A plat is a survey of a piece of land to identify boundaries, easements, flood zones, roadway, and access rights of way. Most projects require a “Property Plat/Site Plan” to be submitted with an application. To preview plat samples, please click on the appropriate link below. Each sample shows the configuration of the lot, including the property dimensions, any easements, and building restrictions. You should have received a legal size document of your plat at the time of your settlement. Please include a copy of the original plat when submitting your modification documentation to the HOA.
What is the purpose of the plat? All architectural improvements must be drawn on the plat to show the location of your project such as a deck, patio, and screened-in porch, play equipment, etc. The plat assists the Modifications Subcommittee in understanding the project and its impact on your property and adjoining properties.
If you cannot locate your plat, contact your Settlement Company or a local land surveyor. In some instances, the Broadlands Homeowners Association office has copies of plats from prior application submissions.
All exterior home improvements require review and approval from the Modifications Subcommittee prior to starting a project. It is beneficial for you to review the specific guidelines pertaining to the planned modification before getting estimates or meeting with contractors. This ensures that you are familiar with any restrictions pertaining to the proposed project and can disclose them to the contractor as needed.
