Info from today’s robo call – 7/2/2020

The following information is from today’s robo call from Board president, Bob Beddes –

As a follow up to last week’s call, I am pleased to report that the Outdoor Pool will open on Saturday July 4th.

As previously indicated, the opening of the pool is subject to many restrictions per the Governors Executive Order and the Department of Health COVID-19 Pool Standards.

Some of the key restrictions are as follows:

  • The Pool is open to Residents only; guests will not be permitted. The pool will be open daily from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
  • Capacity is limited per COVID-19 Standards and furniture has been placed accordingly to provide required social distancing.
  • Access will only be permitted through the southeast gate, down the hill from the shuffle board courts.
  •  Attendees will need to sign in upon arrival.

Use of the pool facility during the COVID-19 Pandemic is at your own risk. Please refrain from going to the Pool if any of the following apply:

  • You are sick or exhibit any COVID 19 symptoms
  • You were exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days or have travelled from a location requiring you to self-quarantine for 14 days.

The complete set of Rules have been posted on the community website and will be available upon entry to the Pool. Please become familiar with the guidelines for this season.

Your cooperation with the guidelines will enable us to keep the pool open for the rest of the season, at a time when many other similar communities confirmed they will not even open their pool.

Again, the Outdoor Pool opens this Saturday July 4th at 11:00am.

We hope that all residents and their families are continuing to stay safe and remain healthy. And the Board extends everyone’s appreciation for the work of the Management Office in opening our community pool.

Info from today’s robo call 6/26/2020

This information is from today’s robo call from our Board president Bob Beddes:

As noted on our previous calls and updates on the website, the Board and Management Office have been working to open several amenities based on announcements from Governor Murphy. In fact, we have been working on this since the start of the pandemic.

Today, I am pleased to report our progress in several areas.

The following amenities will be available for residents use only, starting Friday June 26:

Furniture has been placed on the Clubhouse veranda for gatherings or committee meetings. Committees or clubs planning to use the veranda should reserve their time with the Management Office.

Bocce, Horseshoes, shuffle board and croquet are also now available.

Please note that guidelines remain in place for the use of these facilities:

For example:

Social Distancing must be observed

Masks should be worn if social distancing of 6 feet is not possible, except where not practical or due to health issues, plus

sanitizing all touch surfaces, wearing gloves, etc.

Please following the specific guidelines on nearby signs.

We have also completed the operating plan for the Outdoor Pool which was required to comply with the COVID-19 restrictions issued by the Department of Heath. Late yesterday the DOH approved the Plan, subject to the submission of additional information which will be provided in a few days.

Therefore, based on the work that we have done over the past many weeks, we will soon be in a position to open the pool. We are cautiously optimistic that it will open on Saturday July 4th. We will announce the specific date as soon as we have received the DOH License.

Please note that the initial opening of the pool will be subject to many restrictions per the Executive Order and the Dept. of Health COVID-19 Pool Standards.

For example, at this time some of the restrictions are as follows:

  • Hours of operation will be limited
  • Attendees will need to sign in and there will be limits to the total number allowed in the pool area at any one time
  • Access will be for residents only and
  • Until further notice, we will not be able to hold Hot Dog Saturdays.

Thank you for your patience and continued cooperation throughout this difficult period.

The Board and Management Office hope that all residents and their families are continuing to stay safe and remain healthy

Car thefts/break-ins in our area!

We have been informed of recent car thefts and car break-ins in Wall Township ( @ Pheasant Hollow development across from us on Lakewood Road) during the night.

Our Board has spoken with Wall Township Police Department and the Police will make extra passes through our community during the next several evenings.

We recommend that cars are parked in your garage overnight. If your car is parked parked on the driveway, never leave valuables in the car and make sure the car is locked. Also, always make sure your garage door is closed!

Information from the 5/29/2020 robo call.

The following information is from todays robo call from Board president Bob Beddes.

As we complete the 11th week under COVID 19 restrictions, the Board and Management Office hope that all residents and their families are continuing to stay safe and remain healthy.

On Monday June 1st our Four Seasons American Legion group will hold a brief ceremony at 2:00pm in front of the clubhouse to present winners of this year’s James Connolly Memorial Scholarships. Please use caution if driving by that area at that time.

Next week, we will begin the first application of a root injection treatment to suppress the damage from infestation of approximately 70 Ash trees. The current plan is to apply this treatment every other year, over a period of 10 years to preserve the trees.

The Board and Management office continue to work on developing plans and procedures that will need to be followed when we reopen our facilities. We are equally anxious to open the amenities as you are; however, we need to ensure that we follow the directives in the Governors Executive Orders. Our Management Company, FirstService Residential continues to provide us with updates emphasizing this responsibility and recommendations on reopening.

This is a frequently changing and fluid environment and the Board and Management Office are evaluating our plans on a daily basis.

As soon as we able to open any facility or area, it will be promptly announced on a call and posted on the Community website. Thank you for your patience and continued cooperation during this difficult period.

Please stay safe and continue to follow the guidelines of health care professionals

Thank You.

Reopening of Common Area locations – info from our Board of Trustees.

Upon advice of Counsel and in accordance with Executive Order No. 147, the Board cannot at this time allow the use of our amenities (even just for socialization) other than the tennis courts  As much as we appreciate the desire of some residents for more social interaction, the Board must adhere to the Governor’s guidelines and restrict the use of our communal facilities.  This morning the Board met and explored with Counsel the possible use of the pool and veranda for social gatherings and were advised unequivocally that such gatherings were not permissible.  The Board and Counsel will continue to meet and discuss reopening of our various amenities as the Governor modifies Executive Order No. 147.

Please note that this is a frequently changing and fluid environment and the Board and Management Office are evaluating our options on a continuous basis. We are equally anxious to open the amenities; however, we need to ensure that we are adhering to the specific provisions in the Governors Executive Orders for us to do so.

The Governor’s press conference today seemed encouraging and hopefully we can soon make a few incremental changes, especially with outdoor amenities.

 We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Four Seasons at Wall

Board of Trustees
