7 Ways to Prepare for a Winter Storm – This list covering driving, dress, and home will make sure you’re plenty prepared for any winter storm.

Keep these seven tips in mind to help you prepare for any unexpected weather:

  • Learn winter weather terms: Know what each winter weather advisory, watch or warning means and how you should respond.
  • Service your furnace: Have your furnace checked annually, especially if you rarely use it. You’ll want it to be in tip-top shape if you do need it.
  • Plan for back-up power for individuals requiring use of medical equipment.
  • Brush up on winter driving tips: If you are uncomfortable driving in snow and ice, avoid it whenever possible.
  • Keep the pantry stocked: It’s smart to keep your house stocked with groceries all winter long. Should the power go out, you’ll want to have plenty of extra water and nonperishable food that you can prepare without cooking.
  • Prepare emergency kits: Keep one emergency kit in your home and one in each family member’s vehicle.
  • Keep warm clothes on hand: Keep layers in your car, and make sure you have a large, water-resistant coat that can fit over several layers of clothing. You’ll also want a pair of waterproof boots that will fit over several pairs of socks.

Remember, animals get cold too. Do not leave your pets outside when the temps dip.

 

MAINTENANCE ISSUES

Canyon Club counts on our residents to help keep us informed of issues in our community.

You are our eyes and ears. If you have concerns, questions or suggestions for maintenance please communicate them through the HOA office by calling the office manager, 303-757-8527, email to canyonclubcondos@gmail.com. Maintenance emergencies must be called into the maintenance emergency line at 720-385-8158.

Winter is upon us. The pool has been winterized and covered for the season, pool furniture put away, salt buckets placed around the property, and drain buckets set out to help control ice during snowmelt. Designscapes completed their final clean- up of the grounds last week.

Completed Projects this Fall

  • Built a 10’x12’ shed to house the pool furniture, pool cover, salt buckets and drain buckets.
  • Cleaned out and revived the stairwell at the point.
  • Inspected every stair tread in the complex. Roadrunner Fabrication repaired all bad/broken welds.
  • We have two bike racks for people to use, one is on the side of unit 82 in the courtyard and the other is in front of unit 128 by the laundry room. We are open to suggestions to place a couple more.
  • All services have been done on maintenance equipment including new rear brakes on the Ford.

We have also had a large influx of sewer backup problems again. I would like to remind everyone that our plumbing is 50 years old and to be cautious of what you are putting in it. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper – including wipes, feminine products, or anything else! These products do not break down like toilet paper. Flush-able wipes and other cotton products also do not break down and cause clogs. Do not put fibrous vegetables, any kind of protein, or fatty/greasy foods down the garbage disposal. All these things will build up and cause a clog.

Roof & Hail Storm Update – The Board has hired Reconstruction Experts as our general contractor. Reconstruction Experts work with HOA Communities specifically. We have interviewed roofing companies and are in the process deciding on who will be selected.

We will reconstruct and repair several buildings after

the first of the year to understand all issues we are facing and develop a detailed timeline and estimate of costs and use this information to proceed with our claim.

 PET WASTE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY 

Pick-up after your pets or incur a fine. Remember the new cameras are in place to catch those not following the rules. It could be your pet that tracks waste into your home so be kind and just do it! PICK IT UP!

Rules & Regulations – available on the website or from the office – it is your responsibility to know and follow these rules & regulations. “I did not know” is not an excuse.
