Country Club Ridge Tenants Corp Board of Directors
The Ridge Line – March 2022
HAPPY SPRING! Another winter has come and gone, and CCR is gearing up for spring cleaning, warmer weather and outdoor activities. Our Garden Committee will be spiffing up the communal garden and our landscapers will soon be planting flowers and new trees. The CCR swimming pool will be readied for opening on Memorial Day. For our CCR kids, our brand-new playground will be installed at the top of the hill this spring so keep an eye out for a memo announcing the grand opening!
Annual Shareholders’ Meeting – Save the Date
The annual CCR Shareholders’ Meeting is planned to be held outdoors again in the 10-20 Rockledge courtyard, on Thursday, June 9th (rain date Tuesday, June14th). More details will follow from Douglas Elliman Property Management. As always, all shareholders are encouraged to attend the annual meeting in order to elect Board members, to be informed of any community matters, to share any concerns, and to make suggestions on how to better our CCR community.
Calling All CCR Gardeners!
It is now time for anyone who was assigned a communal garden plot in 2021 to re-confirm their intention to work their assigned plot in the 2022 season. Please send an email to CCRCoopGarden@gmail.com with your name and unit address to confirm if you will be using your assigned plot this year. Residents wishing a first-time plot may send an email to CCRCoopGarden@gmail.com with their name, full CCR address, and telephone number, to be placed on the waiting list. Garden plots that are still unconfirmed by Sunday, April 10th will be assigned to residents on the waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis. The Garden Committee invites all CCR communal gardeners to join us for a cleanup day on Saturday, April 23 (rain date April 24) at 11 a.m.
Keeping our grounds beautiful for all residents to enjoy is a team effort! Remember that our common areas are all areas outside of your own apartment. Littering of cigarette butts, tissues, water bottles, candy wrappers, etc. is strictly prohibited on the grass, walkways, and parking lots. Household trash and recycling should be placed outside your units between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. only. Garbage bags should be tied well, and recycling should be rinsed clean to reduce odors. Take care to prevent any soiling or leaking of your trash on the hallway floors and avoid leaning dirty or sharp objects against the walls. Also, please take your household items such as furniture, paint cans, or other large items to the dumpsters and not to the outdoor trash cans.
Over the next few weeks, our staff will be re-painting portions of our building hallways, starting with those hallways in most need of touchups. Residents of those buildings will be notified by memo when the painting will take place, so keep a lookout on your hallway bulletin boards and watch for any “Wet Paint” signs! …
New parking decals were distributed last fall. If your car does not have the new sticker on the right rear window, as of April 1st you are subject to being booted. The visitor parking passes must be filled out properly with no cross outs. For any concerns about your parking decal or visitor passes, please contact the maintenance office at 914-723-1919. CCR residents with assigned garage parking spots should always use their garage spots, to keep as many outdoor spots as possible available for other CCR residents.
Residents and their visitors must drive slowly and carefully at all times but especially now that there will be more strollers and children outside. There have been reports of cars driving the wrong way on Rockledge Road, which is not permitted under any circumstance. Always use the sidewalks where available. We will be consulting with the Town of Greenburgh on measures to improve pedestrian safety at the busy intersections of Rockledge Road and East Hartdale Avenue.
Laundry Room Etiquette
Remember, we live here! Residents may use the laundry rooms only between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. during the week and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Wearing of masks and social distancing is mandatory in our laundry rooms regardless of age, health or vaccine status. Be sure to remove your laundry from washers and dryers promptly, clean any debris left in the washers, empty the dryer lint traps, and treat others’ clothing with respect if something gets left behind. If any of the washers or dryers malfunction or if you lose money, contact Hercules with the details (see posters in the laundry rooms) so you can be refunded and so they can repair or replace the machine.
- Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors are required in every unit, and now is the time for your quarterly battery testing. Do a sound test of all your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and be prepared with replacement batteries. This not only ensures your safety and those of other residents, but is also required by law.
- Tag your outdoor furniture and grills! If the maintenance team doubts the safety or finds something in disrepair that is not tagged, it is obligated to remove it.
- Detached propane tanks are not allowed anywhere on the premises and will be removed by staff.
- Barbecuing may only be done if at least 25 feet away from any CCR building.
- Do not leave shovels, tools, toys, scooters, or bikes outside or in the garage; keep them in your apartment or storage unit. Unattended items other than lawn furniture or grills pose tripping hazards and may be removed without notice.
- To keep away unwanted animals, birdseed feeders are not allowed on any outdoor premises and no household garbage may be tossed into any outdoor trash bins except closed dumpsters.
SUGGESTIONS are always welcome! Feel free to contact Bob Voss or Kevin McGee of the CCR Maintenance Office at 914-723-1919 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., or write to the CCR Board by email to Board@CountryClubRidge.Org. Responses to emails, if necessary, are made by our CCR property manager James Flaherty of Douglas Elliman Property Management. Wishing everyone a wonderful spring!
