Friday News Flash for December 14, 2018
Posted on Dec 14th, 2018 Comments (0)
Dan reports that work on the small pool is continuing, with the fence removed, and a temporary security fence installed.  The area between the current deck and the new wall is being filled in to prepare for the rest of the deck pavers to be installed.
 
Summit Broadband has informed us that they will give us a “Community Television Station” that can be used to help keep NSBC television viewers informed of what is going on in our community.  This may be a good supplement to the NSBC website, for owners present at their condo.  If you are interested in helping with this effort, contact Dan or plan to join the communications committee. 
 
The following is a message from Dee Brandt:
There has been much discussion concerning the timing for the renovation to the club house pool.Some members would like to delay the construction until April while others are excited to keep the momentum going and start as soon as the small pool is complete.  Both viewpoints have merit from a usage standpoint. However, delaying the start has real consequences from a construction standpoint.
 
First, there is no guarantee the contractor will commit to coming back when we want him to.  They are here now and continuous uninterrupted construction is key for them to be able to achieve the profit margin they would like to realize.  There will most likely be additional costs incurred if we force them to leave and come back at a later date.
 Second, there is the matter of the materials the supply house is currently holding for the club house pool renovation. If we are lucky they would only charge us to store the material.  Worst case they would return the material and charge us a restocking fee. Which opens us up to material price increases when we go to purchase at a later date.  This would include building materials as well as fencing. Either way there will be added cost to the association. 
 Finally, and probably the biggest concern, is the potential for major delays in April because of the weather.  Once the rain starts the soil will be unworkable. They simply cannot construct a retaining wall in soggy wet conditions.  And if they do, the potential is there for an inferior product that will be prone to failure.
 While timing seems tough it is actually the perfect time to do this work from a construction standpoint.  The soil conditions are perfect and the weather allows the crews to work more consistently without battling rain and the heat.  The product will be far superior, something the entire association can be proud of.
 Thank you for your patience and understanding the thought process to complete the project in a timely manner.
Renovation Plan for Lighting
Posted on Oct 11th, 2018 Comments (0)
Attached to the link below is an enlargeable PDF showing the detailed plans for the recently accepted bid to upgrade lighting on our property.  The bid was accepted at a cost of $144,000 which was the lowest cost of the three bids submitted.
 
The following is some information on our new parking lot lighting.
 
The lights specified are called “sharp cutoff fixtures” and aim down and not out.
The raw light is filtered through mirrors and lenses before it goes out of the fixture to ensure its downward direction.
These will not shine in windows.
The average light through our parking is designed to be 2.33 foot candles, as shown on the plans.
The average light in a shopping center is more than double that at 5.0 foot candles.
There is no code or specific guidelines for foot candles in a residential complex.  (except at the entrance where we meet a public right of way) Our engineer, Stafford, used the industry standard (and his experience) of approx. 2.5 foot candles to design our lighting.
With this level of light it will be difficult to read a newspaper but you can probably make out headlines pretty clearly.
For reference, a full moon on a clear night, is about .5 foot candles.
The total height of the lights will be 23’.  The concrete base will be 3’ above grade and the actual pole will be 20’.
 
 
Pool Renovation Plans
Posted on Jul 20th, 2018 Comments (0)
Update as of November 9, 2018:
This is a note from Dee Brandt related to the pool renovation project:
Work on the small pool renovation resumed on Monday Nov 5 with the delivery of pavers. Laborers began preparing the site on Tuesday, Nov 6.
 
We expect the small pool with extended deck area will be complete for Season. We are confident that the deck extension will accommodate all who wish to use it.
 
Work on the large pool will begin once the small pool is finished. Please be aware that renovations and landscaping may continue into the Season. We apologize for any inconvenience and remind you that full time owners and annual tenants have endured several improvement projects, including termite tenting, for several months since Irma.
 
Please be gracious and understanding with the process.
 
Original information:  Re-posted from archives on October 1, 2018, by request.
If you have been waiting to see preliminary drawings for some of the renovation projects for our property, links to the first two pool drawings are included  here.  Click the first red link below to see the detailed plans for the small pool and area planting plan,  and the second link to show the large pool deck and retaining wall plan.  When you open the links, you can print or enlarge to better see the plan details.
 
 
 
The other project proposals being worked on at this point, are a design plan for electrical lighting, and drawings and specifications for elevated boardwalks to the large pool and a footbridge to the small pool.  More information will be posted here as it becomes available over the next few months. 
 
 
Changes for Auto-Pay Quarterly Fee Payment Program
Posted on May 17th, 2018 Comments (0)

 

URGENT MESSAGE

 

Please read this information from Southwest Property Management.  (Note that this article will be removed from this page as of January 1.  Revo-pay instructions will remain on the FAQ page after that.)

 

If you are currently in the auto-pay (ACH) system, and have your quarterly fees automatically deducted from your bank account, you will need to take action immediately, if you haven't already. Southwest has changed this process and fees will not be deducted automatically for the July 1 schedule.

 

1. You must register in the Revopay service if you wish to remain in the ACH system. If not, you must send a check, or you will be delinquent and fees and interest will be applied. Instructions are included with the links below.

 

2. You may choose to use a credit card, however, fees will be applied. Fee schedule is shown once you register.

 

3. If you wish to opt out of the ACH, you can send in a check. You will need to request a coupon book, please contact Deanna Fargo, by email, dfargo@swpropmgt.com, or phone 239-298-7241. Do not send your check to the Southwest office. Your check goes directly to the bank.  This system is called a “lock box” and is posted by the bank and then sent to Southwest Accounting Dept. If you send to the office your account may post late.

Save Our Sandpiper Wetlands Project
Posted on May 1st, 2017 Comments (0)
Update to this topic (November 16, 2018).  At their November 13 meeting, the County Commissioners again discussed the proposal for Conservation Collier to purchase this property, and agreed to study the proposal and give it further consideration.
 
Update to this topic (August 3, 2018).  The latest news regarding the Sandpiper Wetlands comes from Alexandra Sulecki from Conservation Collier.  Alex reports that Conservation Collier’s offer to purchase the Hack property (Sandpiper Wetlands) has been rejected.  Mr. Winfield felt the offer was not enough.  (The April 24 Conservation Collier Approved Acquisition List showed the approved estimated value to be $108,000.)  Alex indicates that Conservation Collier does not negotiate, and does not offer more than the appraised value.  The offer has expired and is no longer active. 
 
Update to this topic (April 24th, 2018).   Great news!  The Collier County Board of Commissioners approved the acquisition of the Sandpiper wetlands property as their top priority.  It appears that the acquisition will move forward with an appraisal and the negotiation of the purchase price with the owner.
Update to this topic (April 10th, 2018).  The committee meeting took place on April 9th, and the Sandpiper Street wetlands was top priority on their list of recommended acquisitions which will now go to the Board of Commissioners for consideration at their regular April 24 Board meeting.

The Conservation Collier Land Acquisition Advisory Committee (CCLAAC) will be meeting in a public meeting on Monday , April 9th at 9:00 am in the Commission chambers to rank properties and develop their recommended Active Acquisition List for Conservation Collier’s 9th cycle

Once the Acquisition List is compiled, it will go to the Board for approval at the Board’s regular meeting at the County Courthouse on April 24th.  Upon approval, acquisition will proceed in the priority of the adopted list.

 
You may have heard that a local developer has acquired a three year option to purchase the 27 acres of wetlands, adjacent to our NSBC property, which runs from the corner of Marlin Drive and Sandpiper Street down to the end of Sandpiper Street and along Haldeman Creek.  This property was originally a part of the 40 acre site that was the beginning of our NSBC development.  After our 13 buildings were built, the developer split off and deeded to NSBC the 13 acres that currently makes up our property.  That left the 27 acres that many of us thought would always remain preserved mangrove wetlands.  (See "More" for the whole story on SOS Wetlands progress)
