The town of Addison has approved the installation of License Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras for the three entrances to Addison Place. Police Chief Paul Spencer announces “mobile” cameras will be installed at Addison Place. The LPR’s are called mobile cameras because they are solar powered. The Town is using solar-powered cameras where there is not readily available power sources. These cameras will provide increased security in eliminating unwanted visitors to Addison Place. Date of install is still pending.
Janna Tidwell, Addison Parks & Recreation director, explained last year’s survey responses to the Addison Trails Master Plan to a number of interested homeowners around the picnic tables in North Park on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
The Trails Master Plan survey suggested the removal of the berm and fence at the Westgrove end of North Park and replace with parking spaces.
On Friday 4/16/21 Ms. Tidwell emailed an Addison Place homeowner due to “safety concerns voiced by the neighborhood; we have adjusted the plan to reflect no trailhead access on the West side of the Park.” (Westgrove end)
Ms. Tidwell reminded us that the Town wants to do what its residents desire. Participation in surveys such as this one last year gives the Town the direction it needs and reduces homeowner consternation exhibited on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
As we step into a new decade, the Board of Directors has changed the company that superintends Addison Place.
The Board has chosen FirstService Residential to administer and maintain Addison Place for its 174 homeowners. The agreement commences December 1, 2020 with the transition from the previous company beginning November 1, 2020.
FirstService Residential is a full-service association management company. They have a true 24/7 Customer Care staffed by FirstService Residential employees. Addison Place homeowners will be able to speak with a live person, who can provide immediate answers and information any time, day or night, seven days a week.
FirstService Residential’s technology enhances Addison Place’s ability for homeowners paying dues and provides transparency to homeowners on APHOA financials.
The clout of joining a major management company should improve Addison Place’s ability to increase our Reserve Account’s interest rate and should save us on insurance premiums.
The bottom line: there is very little increase in our cost for superintending Addison Place.
A big welcome to our new Landscape Management Company, Yellowstone Landscape Services.
Their contract began July 1, 2022, and we look forward to improved landscaping in Addison Place and a satisfying, longstanding relationship.
