ABOUT THE LCAM


This LCAM of ours, Donald Foster, is something! Let loose, he is on top of everything, it seems (except when he is crawling through a pipe). He hosts a meeting attended by about sixty residents, where representatives of SWA and Waste Pro explain garbage collection procedures and answer questions. Later, with Waste Pro missing some garbage collections, Donald takes this up with the SWA and gets their written promise to contact Waste Pro and make things better. They write (below from Donald's weekly report):

We are very sorry to hear Waste Pro is once again providing very inconsistent collection services. There is simply no excuse or reason for Waste Pro to be missing individual recycling carts or incomplete routes considering they have provided garbage, bulk and recycling collection services within the Century Village community for over 10 years. This is unacceptable and, rather than take everyone's time to meet regarding this matter, the SWA will meet with Waste Pro's recycling supervisor and collection team to eliminate this poor service.

Then, sniffing around, he discovers a propane gas leak at the Plymouth Laundry, perhaps saving a life or two.

This man is all over the place—and doing a great job! He is the Garbage Czar, or Garbage Guru (which do you prefer, Donald?), and much more!

RETURN OF COMCAST EQUIPMENT


Image result for cable box

 
To make return of Comcast equipment easier, following Atlantic Broadband installation, Comcast will arrange for pickup of old equipment at their units. Pickups will be arranged in advance, and will happen after each unit is switched over to Atlantic Broadband service.
 
Unit owners can call 561-662-7066 to arrange for pickup of their Comcast equipment, or they can sign up for pickup at the UCO Office reception desk. Unit owners will receive a receipt for their Comcast equipment when it is picked up at their units.

Residents may also bring equipment to the Comcast Service Center at 1401 Northpoint Boulevard, West Palm Beach. Please be sure to get a receipt for returned equipment.

A Modest (Re)Proposal.

Now that Lennar has stepped away from purchasing the defunct Turtle Bay Golf Course, (see March 4 posting below) ,I urge Century Village to consider adding a sidewalk on the north side of Century Boulevard.

The pluses:

1. The sidewalk will extend only from Haverhill to the guardhouse, one-third the distance from Haverhill to the East Drive-CV Boulevard intersection. Just as at the Okeechobee Boulevard entrance, an automated gate will allow pedestrian passage. Pedestrians can then, as they do now,  utilize Ascot Road.

2. Pedestrians will not have to cross at the mailbox (LCAM Report: 2/4/19.  “A double row of hedges, bordering a median crosswalk behind Haverhill guardhouse, will be removed- Increased pedestrian traffic at this crosswalk made this hedge removal necessary. An LED lighting fixture will also be added to this crosswalk.”) or at the main intersection.

3. When pedestrians reach Haverhill, they can press the signal control button that the county has obligingly placed on both sides of the northern side of the CV Boulevard/Haverhill crossing.

4. There are no obstacles: no trees; light poles are flush against Ascot Fence. Just a swath of open, flat grass. The south side has four trees and three light poles to the guard house alone, and many more of each from the guardhouse to the the East Drive intersection.

5. Century Village owns the land on the south side: no need to dance with Waldman, or any subsequent golf course property owner, whose winding property line, and often overhanging vegetation,  comes right to the edge of the present (south side) sidewalk.

6. (Probable). When and if Charles Scardina builds his apartment complex just south of the synagogue, (to say nothing of what might eventually be built on the golf course) more traffic congestion will occur. The more that pedestrians can cross Haverhill on the north side, the less potential for accidents.

WHEN IS A BLOG NOT A BLOG?


At the March 1 delegate assembly, an as-usual angry Myron Solomon accused Dave Israel of using "the blog" to endorse his preferred candidates for office. The only problem with Mr. Solomon's assertion was that "THE blog" he refers to has always been Dave's personal blog! Personal opinions are exactly what you do voice on personal blogs. I'm sorry if the blog has been so informative, so well run, and so helpful regarding Village matters that some folk (including Mr. Solomon himself!) now look upon it as "the official Century Village blog." Mr. Solomon's very charge against Dave's blog unwittingly endorses the blog!


There ARE other blogs about Village matters, some administered by the so-called malcontents. There is no reason any one of them could not have become "THE Village blog" in the eyes of the people. I'll leave it to you to surmise why this has NOT happened.

SALE OF DEFUNCT GOLF COURSE TO LENNAR HOMES NOT TO BE AT THIS TIME

-
The following Email from Lennar was received today.
-
David,
 
Thank you for reaching out.  Unfortunately, after conducting our due diligence we decided not to move forward at this time.  You will need to discuss your fencing concerns directly with the Waldman’s. 
 
We will reach out in the future should we put the property back under contract.
 
Thanks,
Dave Israel
