Dear Lost River Valley Home owners:
As we face the coming wind and rain, please be mindful that the wet ground has already loosened some tree roots. Please be extra careful and watchful for trees that could fall on both properties and into roads.
Some of you have asked about trees along the sides of the roads that are dying or have died. You should know that work on removing dead and dying trees that are located within 20 feet of the center of the road will be removed in the next few weeks. In addition, trimming will also occur where trees are overgrown and need to be cut back in order to allow easy passage for all homeowners and maintenance vehicles.
We have received a few requests for road maintenance, especially in light of the heavy amount of rain we have received over the summer. Keith Dove, whose company K & J Excavations, maintains our roads, is scheduled to perform annual fall maintenance sometime in October/November. Given the state of some roads, however, I have asked him to move this maintenance up by a few weeks so that we can make repairs for potholes and undue drainage cracks that have come into being because of the weather. Expect this work to be completed toward the end of September.
Finally, any construction on your property must be reviewed by the LRVHOA Board in order to ensure that we all respect one another’s property and the roads that serve us. If you are planning construction, please follow instructions on the Lost River website for notifying the Board of your planned building project. We will review your project and respond to you as soon as we can. In the future, we are planning to streamline our response method to better ensure complete communication.
Phil Robey, President
