The BSR Board concluded an emergency meeting about an hour ago regarding the gate. We’re super excited to announce that we are proceeding with an upgrade to our gate to automate it! We still have a few details to work out, but we expect work to start within the next week or two with our expectation of the installation being completed around end of October or early November.
Details for initial access through the new gate are being worked on. We’re hoping to either mail an access card or mail/e-mail a unique access code as soon as we have the installer selected. Obviously the latter (mail/e-mail an access code) works best for those Association members with multiple family access. Please ensure we have an up-to-date e-mail address or postal address for you. You won’t be able to get in the neighborhood if we can’t contact you!
In the meantime, due to costs with fixing the current broken lock, we will be using a clipped chain or rope to hold the gate closed. Please help the neighborhood by clipping the gate closed after you go through. This will also help prevent the gate from being blown into the posts and causing further damage.
As a reminder, each homeowner is responsible for the security of their individual property. The Board can help with overall neighborhood security, but we can’t protect individual properties from issues caused by other Association members.
What a year for our gate! Thanks for your patience as we work through the undesired disturbance of our gate lock’s crippling.
