Mowing Begins Week of April 15th
Hello Parke Members and Residents,
The Moore Company will begin the first mow of the season either on Monday or Tuesday (calling for rain on Monday). As many of you know, the ground is still very wet in some areas of your lots, mostly between the homes. This will cause issues with the mowers (push or ride on mowers). Please be advised that the Moore crews have been told to be very cautious on wet areas and to avoid areas that would leave a footprint in the soil so that ruts are not made. They will be push mowing between the houses that are close together. If they start to push through an area and find it to be wet enough to leave a tire imprint into the soil, they will stop and leave the area uncut.
Depending upon the number of uncut areas and the wet conditions of such, Moore may need to walk the area with sting line trimmers (weed wackers) or wait until the next week’s mow and bag (assuming it is dry enough).
I will be in constant communication with the Moore crew leader. Please refrain from giving them special instructions on your properties. If you have an urgent matter that is not covered in this announcement, call the Association Staff – we will handle the communication to the crews. This will also allow me to better monitor all situation and work with Moore on the best way to resolve.
I am anticipating several concerned owners and resident calls next week pertaining to this subject. Please know that Moore and the Association are working together to manage this very wet condition as best as possible. I ask for your patience and understanding and to know that we will work it out in the best interest of every owner and lot. This may take some time, so please give us the benefit of the doubt. Email communication would be preferred so that I can track and manage the issues efficiently.
Please note – the wet conditions on your property are your responsibility to correct unless the Common Property is causing the issue. There are several owners working to make corrections now by regrading the areas, burying downspouts, etc. I can offer some advice and guidance, but I highly recommend those correcting their lots to post the information on the Forum so others who are experiencing the same issues can seek guidance from those who are correcting the issues now.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
Kristi Clarke, GM
