Announcements

The next Board of Directors meeting will be held Tuesday, June 16, 2020 starting at 6:00 PM in the Rec Center, Pioneer room. From 6:00 PM to approximately 6:30 PM procedural agenda items will be handled. The Homeowner Forum, where specific homeowner concerns and issues will be discussed, at 6:30 PM. If you wish to attend and present something during the Homeowner Forum, please contact Christian Brockl, cbrockl@sentrymgt.com, at Sentry prior to the meeting to have your name added to the agenda.

New Board Member
Due to a recent unexpected vacancy on the board, the Board has appointed a new board member. We would like to thank Cammi Riemenschneider for her two years of Service. Lloyd Burke, a homeowner in good standing, nominating committee recommended candidate, and the recipient of the 4th highest number of votes in the 2020 Election was appointed to the board at the meeting on Tuesday. He will be serving the remaining year of Cammi's term.

UPDATE ON THE OPENING OF THE REC CENTER
 
Pools -
We are excited to announce that the pools will be open by June 15th. We have determined that in order to give our residents access, and still abide by the State and CDC guidelines and open in a safe and responsible manner, we will need to implement the following changes: the pools are limited to residents only, no guests allowed at the pool, we will be limiting the capacity and areas of entry, removing all furniture, and allowing residents to bring their own chairs. These are just some of the changes. Sentry and the Board are currently working on the logistics of these new protocols, and will communicate the official rules and procedures prior to opening.
 
Pioneer Room -
Reservations for the Pioneer Room will open beginning June 15th. Some of the changes that will be implemented in order to do this safely and responsibly will be: requiring full day reservations only, there will be an extra charge for bringing in professional cleaners to sanitize all surfaces at the end of each day rental, removing all couches and leather chairs, leaving only plastic tables and chairs which can be easily sanitized, limiting access to other areas of the rec center (bathroom access only), and no access to the pool. Sentry and the Board are currently working on finalizing the new rules and updating the reservation forms. More information to follow. If you would like to put a tentative hold on a date before the new forms and procedures are finalized, please contact Christian at cbrockl@sentrymgt.com.
 
Gym & Racquetball Court -
These areas will remain closed for the time being. While this was a difficult decision, it was determined we could not meet all of the current CDC, State and City guidelines for safely reopening these unsupervised indoor areas and ensuring they are properly sanitized and safe for our residents to use. We will re-evaluate the opening of these areas at the next Board meeting in June.

Communications and Events Committee plans a few annual events including the pool Opening Day in the spring and National Night Out in the fall. Members of this committee work with the CVOA management company and the webmaster to provide updates to the website. Upcoming events are communicated via the Announcements section of the website and via emails from Sentry. The Neighborhood Watch Committee is part pf the CVOA Communications and is organized into a team of block captains who are the contact people for specific sections of the neighborhood. The committee is responsible for maintenance of the Neighborhood Watch signs located on each street. Columbia Village has approximately 90 designated small sections for block captain participation. There’s always a need for more help and the time commitment is very minor, although some block captains go above and beyond by planning block parties and other fun activities. Block Captains act as a ‘telephone tree’ and to communicate with neighbors in the event of an neighborhood emergency. The Neighborhood Watch chairperson holds meetings once or twice per year for block captains to share ideas and learn more about what is happening in our community from guest speakers such as BPD, Carey Guard, and other relevant resources.
