Have you spotted people staring thoughtfully at the BSR gate lately? It may not be just because of the beautiful new paint job. It may be one of our Board members trying to come up with ways to ease and improve the access at our gate.
In recognition of some of the aging population in our community and as a way to better control access, the Board is researching electronic gates. It’s certainly not a new idea, but it’s one we are hoping can provide a more secure and convenient experience for all.
We have been speaking with multiple communities in the canyon to discover the pros and cons they’ve had with their electronic gates. Also, we are obtaining quotes from multiple vendors with the intent to use existing funds (i.e. no assessment!) to pay for the gate upgrade.
We are taking into consideration our winter conditions, ongoing costs, operational stability, backup access, remote control, and a plethora of other options. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us!
A great big thanks to the Nazarowtizs, Fugals, and Mike Jones for their work repainting our gate. It was much needed work that many professionals turned down. The new paint job looks fantastic!
Here’s an opportunity this year to volunteer your services to help beautify our association: main gate painting.
Carol Nazarowitz is leading efforts to organize and paint the main gate in the near future. She is asking for those interested in helping to contact her at 435-783-7141.
Please volunteer to help.
Painting will begin on or about June 11th and is anticipated to be complete around June 22nd. Please be courteous and respectful of the painting efforts as they are occurring and expect reasonable delays travelling through the gate during this period.
There should be no locks or lock-boxes attached to the gate. If there are, these will be cut off and disposed of when painting is started. All locks and lock-boxes should be attached to the provided lock-box post found between the gate and the bulletin board.
At the moment (because it is always dependent on weather conditions) we anticipate road maintenance will be done 5/7/18–5/18/18. Road base will be put down, roads will be graded and rolled. There is also carryover culvert work from last year that will take place on Fremont and Lewis & Clark. However we don’t know if it will occur at this same time or whether it will be later in the year.
While road base is being brought in, anticipate the main gate to be chained open. Be cautious of heavy machinery and respect road restrictions that may be imposed for short periods of time.
With this weekend being Pioneer Day weekend, BSR could be a busy place. New speed bumps have been in place for a couple weeks at the top of Mud Hill. These can take people by surprise if they are not aware of them. Signs have been ordered.
Please be aware of the new speed bumps and exercise caution on the roads. The speed limit is 10 mph and should be observed for everyone’s safety.
Update, 8/12/2017: Signs have been posted on the first and third dips which face both directions. Be aware there is a second dip on the crest of the hill. We are aware that this unmarked dip is extremely difficult to see while driving and are taking feedback on the dips in general.
Annual road maintenance is planned to occur May 15–26, pending weather conditions. Maintenance will include culvert replacement/repair, road base, grading, and rolling. You may encounter heavy road machinery during the maintenance. Please use caution and respect any road restrictions which may be temporarily in place where work is in progress.
Water line work will take place along the meadow road on Tuesday, November 8th, from about 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. This will require the road to be closed for about 1½ hours during that 4 hour time frame. If REQUIRED, the contractor will be able to assist with EMERGENCY ONLY entrance/exit. Please plan your schedules so that the work can be completed without interruption and the road opened again as quickly as possible.
Weather permitting, annual road maintenance is scheduled for the period Monday, 5/23, thru Friday, 6/3. Work will take place during the week allowing for normal access on weekends.
Navigation of some BSR roads may be impaired for short periods of time during this period due to heavy machinery and the placement of new road base.
Exercise caution thru the work zones.
Contact Claire Stevenson @ 801-520-6923 with any gate key questions or problems.
Completion of annual road maintenance originally scheduled to occur from 5/11 – 5/22 has been delayed due to wet weather conditions. Heavy machinery is still on BSR property. Maintenance will be completed as soon as weather permits. Please use caution and respect any road restrictions that may temporarily be in place where work is in process.
