The Board has received numerous inquiries about what is and is not taking place in Manitou during this unprecedented time. I will try to address as many of those as possible. 
 
The clubhouse remains closed until further notice 
 
The Board of Directors and Committee meetings are being held virtually 
 
All homeowner improvement projects must still be approved by the ACC.  Applications can be submitted via email. 
 
The Maintenance Committee will still be conducting inspections and notifying homeowners of required repairs, however, the timeline for making those repairs cannot be established as of this writing.  
 
The pool covering has been taken off to prevent algae growth.  The pool opening date cannot be established at this time.  If and when the pool does open, there will not be lifeguards.  
 
There will not be general mulching this year.  All tree work will be done only on an emergency basis until further notice. 
 
Our general landscaping will be continuing fully. 
 
Beautification, street, path paving, fencing and any other upgrading projects will be governed by state mandates, contractor availability and our financial status. 
 
Dues are to be paid as usual. Any homeowner having a financial problem, due to Covid related issues, which would impact their ability to pay those dues, should contact the Board directly and those cases will be dealt with on an individual basis. 
 
As I have said previously, please do not visit the management office. We have email and voicemail options.  
 
Some of our homeowners do not have email.  It is highly recommended that all homeowners either have an email address or provide a trusted contact who does have one.  The only way for us to communicate is through email and this newsletter.  Any notification published through those two methods will suffice and serve as proper. Therefore, any claim of being unaware of a requirement will be invalid. 
 
For Dog owners.  We have had an unusual amount of walking by residents.  There has been an increase in complaints of dog waste lying about.  Please pick up after your dogs!  The circles are not to be used as dog toilets. Please submit your pet survey. 
 
Lastly, please try and maintain proper distancing as you walk around the community.  Stay safe and healthy.
