As fall approaches, now is the time to start working on your lawns. Please see the attached lawn care guide, which has tips and advice for both cool season (tall fescue) and warm season (Bermuda) grasses.
At minimum, core aeration, topdressing (with starter fertilizer) and overseeding are great steps to take this time of year for a healthy lawn come spring!
FALL LANDSCAPING _ LAWN CARE
The Weddington Ridge Community Yard Sale will be on October 24th from 7-11AM. If you would like to join in, please place items for sale in your driveway.
We ask that everyone be conscious of social distancing & consider cashless payments (Venmo, PayPal, CashApp, Zelle, etc.) for transactions.
Happy selling and buying!
SAYOR is short for “Swim at your own risk”.
Each pool season, the pool opens a couple weeks before school lets out, and stays open for a couple of weeks after school starts in the fall.
Historically, the pool has been closed during the day and only open when lifeguards are present, beginning at 4pm (remember, the lifeguards are students). This year, the Board decided to allow residents to use the pool during the day without a lifeguard present, i.e. “SAYOR”.
There is a form on the Community Documents page that will need to be signed for the fall and future seasons, but all residents’ fobs were activated for the start of this season.
FWIW, the pool and clubhouse are Internet equipped…so if you need a break from the home ‘office’, you should be able to get some work done by the pool.
Please be advised that the Weddington Ridge pool will NOT be opening for the season as scheduled on May 16, 2020. We are hopeful that pools in North Carolina will be allowed to re-open in Phase 2, however, Aquatech has not yet received any guidance from the Board of Health detailing when or if pools will be allowed to open this summer. Ultimately, we will be following all state, local and CDC guidelines to determine when/if the pool can be opened and if social distancing measures (such as capacity limits) need to be enacted.
In the meantime, Aquatech is maintaining the pool properly so, if the green light is given, it can be opened quickly. Please also ensure you have a pool FOB for access (lifeguards do NOT have these to distribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://weddingtonridgehoa.com/pool/) and your 2020 Unescorted Minor and Swim at Your Own Risk forms are completed and sent to email@example.com (these forms will also be available by the end of the week on MyCMG and the Community Documents page of the HOA website).
The HOA Board of Directors
Spring fest looks a little different this year! We will be hosting a sign hunt/ word scramble around the neighborhood on Wednesday, April 8 – Saturday, April 11. Spring signs will be placed in yards on the Cameron Creek/Weddington Ridge loop. Hunt for all 16 signs and unscramble the letters on each sign to reveal the scrambled word. Once you finish please complete the document below; Include the unscrambled word, your address and how many children you have. Prize bags will be geared to children under 12 but everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate! Prize bags will be delivered to porches on Sunday, April 12th. Precautions will be taken when assembling prizes, but please take your own as you see fit.
Weddington Ridge Social Committee
The Board of Directors will be postponing violation hearings until after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended and stay-at-home orders are lifted.
In addition, there will be leniency on violations. The Board asks in return that those violations that can be remedied easily, i.e. lawns mowed, weeds cleared, dead shrubs removed, mildew on siding, missing mailbox numbers, garbage cans in view of the road, improperly stored items, etc., still be addressed. Please just do your best in maintaining your property to the standards detailed in the Rules & Regulations/ARC Guidelines and try not to worry about anything that would require a 3rd-party or contractor to fix.
*This does not mean that your HOA dues are deferred. They should be paid on time, as we still have work and upkeep being done in our community.
**This also does not mean that inspections will be postponed or that violation notices won’t be sent. We are continuing with “business as usual” with the understanding that the Board is giving you more time to remedy any violations, and some violations, unfortunately, will not be able to be remedied for a while. Please be sure to always email firstname.lastname@example.org
with photos if you have remedied your violation in order to clear them from your file.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email email@example.com
and all community documents can be found in the navigation pane on the left.
We hope you all stay safe and continue to make Weddington Ridge a great place to live!
In addition to the Mecklenburg County Stay at Home Order, Governor Roy Cooper ordered people in the state of North Carolina to stay at home for thirty days, until April 29, 2020, in another step to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Governor Cooper’s Executive Order No. 121 takes effect on Monday, March 30 at 5:00 PM and reduces the size of gatherings to 10 people. The Order provides for essential businesses to continue to operate while prioritizing social distancing measures. The Order has the force of law and will be enforced in all 100 counties statewide.
The Order in its entirety can be found here.
Some key points for our community:
- Social gatherings limited to 10 people
- Essential businesses will continue to operate (travel only for essential household needs)
- Local parks will remain open for greenways and trails, but maintain a 6 foot ‘social distance’
Please stay safe, stay healthy and stay at home.
