Unit 2 – Landscape Update – 5/7/2021

Just a quick Friday message to let homeowners know what’s happening. Currently the thatch is being removed and or scalped and dethatched for restoration. Planting will continue in areas as they are prepared. There will be some work on sidewalks as part of this process. Can’t promise a finish date but we know it’s getting closer. Thank you for your patience. We know it has been a long time getting done and understand your frustration.  

Covid Precautions

A message from the President of the Board:

According to our understanding of the CDC Guidelines, vaccinated adults are now allowed to meet in groups indoors using reasonable precautions.  Specifically, the guidelines say that such vaccinated adults are not required to wear facemasks at all times in such indoor activities.  Therefore, in the time until June 15, we ask community members to wear facemasks when entering or leaving meetings or activities or when in close contact with a group of people.  Once settled into a room with social distancing in place, the masks can come off.  Anyone who is uncomfortable with this approach or is unvaccinated should continue to use full precautions as up to now.  

OCA will re-open totally on Mon., May 3rd!

You may begin meeting again with your activities starting May 3rd at the same time and location that you did in the past.   You may not make any changes to either time or location without approval from Karen Walter in the OCA Office.

A Gift from LaBahn’s – revamped corner monument

Thank you, LaBahn’s!

This newly revamped monument area at the corner was a gift from LaBahn’s, esp. Ron Zaccaro and Gregg Fonseca. The breaks in the curbing were done by a previous landscaper to allow excess water buildup to escape.
