Annual Garage Sale
Our subdivision annual garage sale will be from Thursday, May 31 – Saturday, June 2 beginning at 9am on Thursday and ending at 5pm on Saturday. Once again, we are combining with Fairways and Fairway Pines. Participating is simple. Gather your goodies, price and display them, tie some balloons out in front of you house, open your garage door and make some money! Sale hours are 9-5 each day. The more participating homeowners, the better everyone will do! An ad will be posted in Craigslist and Nextdoor websites.
Landscaping Update for 2018
Earlier this year, the Board of Directors solicited quotes for our 2018 Landscaping Services from eight (8) vendors. After a thorough review of the quotes and services, the Board contracted with Oakley Lawn Services for lawn maintenance for 2018. Oakley will provide lawn cuts, fertilization and sprinkler start up and winterization. A big thank you to Kevin Whitaker who spearheaded this effort.
Architectural Review Committee (ARC) Update
Before you start exterior home or landscape improvements, approval is required by the subdivision’s Architectural Review Committee (ARC). This requirement, as outlined in the subdivision Covenants and Restrictions, ensures that our neighborhood maintains its appearance and value. Section VI of the Covenants reads in part:
"No improvement shall be erected, placed, installed, constructed, reconstructed or maintained on any lot, nor shall any exterior addition to, or change in, or alteration of the exterior appearance of any improvement, or any change in landscaping, be made until plans and specifications showing the kind, size, shape, height, colors, materials, topography, and location of each improvement on the lot shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the committee."
This means that items such as a swimming pool, roof shingles, backyard deck or patio, or other potential exterior change, should be submitted in writing to the committee for approval. The reason for this rule is to ensure that every house meets the specifications intended for our subdivision in order to maintain the look and quality that we desire as a community. Building permits are required for many of these improvements and Canton Township will not issue a permit without the subdivision’s written approval.
Hang in there Pheasant View, spring is upon us!!! And with spring comes our Phase 2 mailbox installation. The order has been placed and the preliminary installation for the remaining 75 homes will be in May.
The contractor will remove and install the mailboxes in one day. A dumpster loaded with the old mailboxes will reside on one of our roads (location is TBD) for a day or two. We apologize for the brief inconvenience.
An email blast will be sent to the entire subdivision once the date of installation has been identified. Care will be taken to insure no mail is mishandled as the old boxes are replaced with our upgraded product.
Additionally, the 85 mailboxes that were installed last November will be wiped and waxed to match the 75 new mailboxes being installed this spring. Each year going forward, I will propose the HOA budget to include the wiping and waxing of all the mailboxes. With this maintenance, the mailboxes will continue to add value to our neighborhood for years to come.
I want to thank the neighbor volunteers that assisted in this effort. Without them the collection of 160 “Yes” votes (of 162 homes) could not have been accomplished.
Our obsolete and basically nonexistent subdivision babysitter / pet sitter list is getting a fresh start thanks to Mary Nader. If you or someone in your family would like to be on our list, please send an e-mail to Mary at babysitting@PheasantView.org with your name, address, contact information and age (or “adult). The list will only be provided by request to residents of our subdivision. When requesting it, please include your name and address in your e-mail so that it can be verified against the subdivision records.
