Halfway Housing In Windsor Parke

Terrance Freeman, Executive Council Assistant District 3, in his presentation at the Windsor Parke Property Owners Annual Meeting November 15, 2016, made a statement concerning Halfway Housing.  After doing an exhaustive search on the Internet, I was unable to find any reference to a Halfway House within or close to Windsor Parke.  The following is the response that I received from Mr. Freeman:

“The location of the homes I was referring to are actually in the Indian Springs community. I am currently working to see if I can identify others within District 3. To date I have not been successful. 

 I was trying to give a general overview of the district in my report. I hope I did not confuse or concern too many.”

Storm Report from Jacksonville

Posted 11/12/16

  1. City Council supported the Mayor in declaring a state of emergency and expending funds without the normal procurement process.
  2. We expect that the cleanup from the hurricane may exceed $100M.  We have an established minimum contingency of $50M in our budget although I believe now it has somewhere around $55M for emergencies so we are spending money that we do not have but we do expect FEMA assistance.
  3. The debris cleanup in the city may reach 1 million cubic yards.  To date we have collected over one half of that amount.  That equates to about 14 million wheelbarrow loads to give you an appreciation for the magnitude of debris.
  4. We established 10 city owned recovery areas throughout the city to collect debris from the cleanup effort.  Most of those areas are parks.  At those areas, trucks are delivering material where it is shredded, burned, or transported to the landfill.
  5. We estimated that it would take up to 30 days to cover the entire city.  It appears we will meet that estimate but the cleanup effort has gone slower than estimated due to the amount of debris compounded by the fact that many tree cutting services have left debris at the residence instead of disposing in direct violation of city ordinances.  We are not currently holding home owners responsible for disposal of material if they contracted with a tree service and that service did not dispose of the material.
  6. After the first pass to each property in Jacksonville, we will then make a second pass to get residual material that was not ready for the first pass.
  7. We have three waste collection companies providing service to Jacksonville: Republic, Waste Pro, and Advanced Disposal.  Those companies are continuing their normal trash collection and debris collection.  They do not have capacity to pick up the storm debris.  That is being done by Coxwell who was on contract with the city to collect debris in case of a major issue like we experienced.  They were working the day after the storm to prep the collection areas and sign on sub-contractors. Coxwell has contracted as much assistance as possible to perform and accelerate cleanup.  Unfortunately Jacksonville is one of many areas that need debris cleanup so we have been competing up and down the eastern seaboard for outside of area crew, trucks, and heavy equipment.

So frankly, I am very pleased with the cleanup efforts but I can understand frustration that yours is one of the neighborhoods that has yet to be serviced.

Dredging Project Update

Posted 08/26/16

The main topic of discussion at the August 16, Windsor Parke Property Owners and Board of Directors meeting centered on the financing of the Lake #3 dredging project.  Lake #3 runs from Sutton Park Drive South (Burger King) to Sutton Park Drive North (golf course pump house).

The Board of Directors voted to contract Taylor Engineering, Inc. as an independent project manager to represent the Board over the course of dredging operation by C&M Dredging.  Information on Taylor is available at: http://taylorengineering.com/.  Information on C&M Dredging can be found at: http://www.cmdredging.com/.

A total of 12,500 cubic yards of material is to be removed, dewatered and hauled to a disposal site for a cost of $436,768.  This price includes both Taylor Engineering and C&M Dredging proposals.  The board voted to finance the entire project from current operating capital and reserves.  The start date is (approximately) October 1.

Please direct any questions to me at youst07@gmail.com.

Community Update

Posted: 07/2/16

Thank you for all your responses to the POA Special Assessment Questionnaire regarding the cost of the dredging project.  The Windsor Board of Directors will discuss funding options at their August 16th meeting, at the Holiday Inn Express, Windsor Commons, 6:30 p.m. We would like to see more community members attend and become involved.

The contractors repairing the culvert system on Richmond Park Drive hopes to have paving completed by Friday, July 29 and to open the road by Wednesday, August 3rd.  We will keep you advised.

Due to the lack of rain and the low water level, vegetation and bacteria growth have greatly increased in the lakes.  The lake treatment company has been notified and has begun treatment.  Overall condition of the lakes will improve over the coming weeks.  Hopefully Mother Nature will send rain soon.

Lake Water Levels | Richmond Park Drive Update

Posted 06/30/16

I have been in contact with the foreman of the Richmond Park Drive construction project.  Based on their construction schedule, with no weather delays, the level of the lakes should begin to increase around July 9th.

Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July.

Richmond Park Drive Closure

Posted 06/20/2016

Richmond Park Dr. will be closed from June 20, 2016 through July 22, 2016.  The repairs that were made to the culverts / Richmond Park Drive previously were unsatisfactory. Please note that the water level of the main lake system will be lowered to assist in the repairs. I hope the Richmond Park Drive closure does not cause you any problems.

Have a GREAT Summer!

Neighborhood Watch Announcement:

Posted 12/08/2014

Hi Neighbors:

It was brought to my attention by Klaus Holze and Ernie Medina that in our neighboring community of Danforth a few days ago, there were several robberies. The thieves apparently broke into several  locked cars parked in driveways, and using their garage door openers, got into the garages and homes and stole several  items.  One of the cars was also stolen.

Unfortunately we must always keep our eyes and ears open for anything unusual happening in our neighborhood.  We can never let our guards down.  Please don’t leave anything of importance in cars and always remember to keep garage doors down

Let’s be safe this holiday season
