A few updates to share – August 2019:
Our next lawn treatment is scheduled for August 6th. This treatment will include spraying for post emergent crabgrass. Sorry for the short notice on this.
Street Tree Trimming:
The landscaping and grounds committee, in partnership with the board, has determined that many of the street maples in phases 1 and 2 should be trimmed back from road. As trees have grown, the volunteer clean-up day efforts of past years are no longer feasible. Mike Hennas (who recently pruned our shrubs) has been contracted to remove low growing limbs and prune branches away from road. A few street evergreens in phase 1 which have outgrown available space will be pruned or removed.
The contracted work will be limited to improving road clearance, visibility and mower access, important for all residents. Any additional tree trimming desired is the responsibility of owner.
Tree trimming will include trees at the Fells Berm and Glen Ct Island along with removal of dying trees at the Glen Ct Island.
This work is planned for early September.

Trailside Roads and Drainage:
The board remains committed to repairing the gravel shoulders. A contractor has been hired and the work is being scheduled. A date is not available yet but is expected to be within the next couple months. Thank you for your continued patience.
If you missed the June email, the board hired an experienced engineer, Steven Keach, to evaluate and make recommendations. You can read his report by clicking pdf here (114 KB) . Please note that you will need to be logged into your Fells website account to view.
Consider running for the board:
At our annual meeting in Dec, the community will elect a community member to fill the board position that will be open due to the expiration of Elaine Francis’s term. After two full terms, Elaine has decided not to run for reelection. If you are interested or just want to learn more, feel free to contact a board member. We will be sending out info on how to throw your hat in the ring, etc., at a later date.
Reminder: September 18th Community Meeting:
Please save the date. The board will update the community on the condo doc revision process begun last year. We plan to cover several other topics and allow time for Q&A. We will be sending out info and draft condo docs later this month.
