SIPOA Executive Director’s Report
A summary of our operational activities as of the April Board meeting
Operations and Maintenance:
Boardwalk 1 construction is complete and the new shower station has been added.
The 4-week spring leaf-cleanup/street sweeping is finished. We collected about 200 cubic yards of leaf debris that didn’t enter our drainage system and ponds. The Greenery has now resumed regular clean up and mowing work.
Safety and Security:
An additional “barcode lane” sign was installed just before the entrance to Landfall Way.
Officers are preparing for the busy rental season that starts in late May. The Saturday of Easter weekend was very busy, with almost 600 visitor passes issued in 8 hours. It was also the first opportunity to test the rental voucher system in the new ABDI software. With this system, when a renter books their visit, the rental agency sends them a voucher with a QR code that can either be printed or saved on a smartphone. When the rental guest arrives at the gate, the voucher is scanned and their pass prints automatically. The pass process takes 10-15 seconds rather than 60+. We found that many of the agencies didn’t use the voucher system that weekend. We’ve been in contact with them to guide them through the process. After May 1 they will be required to issue vouchers for all guests. The system is also available to owners that rent through VRBO and other online rental services. Every second we save will help reduce traffic at the gate.
The Lake House was busy for the two weeks of spring break visitors. The sail shades that were removed for the winter were re-installed last month.
