STREAM RESTORATION PROJECT

The County has completed the designs and is in the process of obtaining permits and rights of entry for two of the water quality improvement projects in the Turf Valley Overlook neighborhoods:

· Pebble Beach Pond Retrofit

· Pinehurst Court Stream Rehabilitation Project

We anticipate beginning construction on the projects within the next 3-6 weeks. Letters will be sent out to the property owners adjacent to each of these projects, respectively, to notify them about the construction later this week. The letters are attached for your information and use in communicating the information to the greater communities via your newsletters.

If you have any questions about the Pebble Beach Pond Retrofit, you can contact Kelly Hargadin, who is the Project Manager. Kelly is copied on this email and can be reached directly at 410-313-0844.

If you have any questions about the Pinehurst Court Stream Rehabilitation Project, please feel free to contact me using the information below.

Thank you!

Christine S. Smith, P.E.

TREE TRIMMERS ARE STILL HERE!

Remember the summer tree trimmers that were along Pebble Beach? They are still in the neighborhood and working their way back to RT 40. They are currently raising the canopy on Timber Trails Ct.. I have been told several times that the contract is to complete the entire neighborhood. So, I have to trust them at their word. Please watch out for them and make adjustments with park cars. Thanks.

2014 TVO DIRECTORY IS HERE!

Shamefully, schedules ran amuck and we have not delivered the 2014 TVO Directory. It is our intent to engage the block captains and get these delivered before Thanksgiving. Please be on the lookout for delivery details. Neighboring communities, please contact your HOA for delivery details. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

TASK FORCE – STREET SIGNS

We are still seeking task force members for the Street Sign Task Force. Jeff McConnell (Doral Ct.), TVO I Member -at-Large, has agreed to chair this task force and will report on this matter at our March meeting. We are seeking 3-5 volunteers to serve on the committee. If you are interested please contact Jeff at jeffrey.j.mcconnell@gmail.com or James Brown at jamesbrown_923@hotmail.com.

RT40/144

In spite of the traffic signal improvements, we are still having issues with the Rt. 40/ 144 intersection. Rt. 40 is a busy intersection and will most likely get busier due to future development. One neighbor has suggested installing a red light camera for those cars that blow through the intersection. This past Tuesday (10/28), while changing light bulbs at the monuments and talking with a TVO II family on a nightly walk, I realized how extremely unfriendly that intersection is for pedestrians. We have an issue that is worth discussing.

TVO I has asked the state to evaluate this intersection to see how it can be improved. For more information contact James Brown at jamesbrown_923@hotmail.com or call the State Highway Administration’s Hotline at 1-888-963-0307. Please mention this service request – SR0216347.

CONTRACTOR RECOMMENDATIONS
Recently, there has been a lot of activity asking for contractor recommendations. One of the features of our new website is the TVO I Bulletin Board at https://turfvalleyoverlook1.org/bulletin-board. Don’t forget to check here before sending a request to the TVO I email list. If you do send a message to the list requesting recommendations, please post the responses you get on the bulletin board for the community to use. Thanks.
