Member News & Bulletins
Last weekend a " perfect storm " occurred over the weekend. No, not 3 feet of champagne powder. It was a beautiful sunny weekend, stable snow pack and the opening weekend for ski lessons. Everybody from hikers, cross country skiers, a dog club, skiers/boarders and whatever came up to enjoy our beautiful hang out. One result was parking chaos. It hit us specifically on Ober Strasse with a number of cars parking on our road starting at the bottom and leaving room for only one lane. The good news is that the road was in relatively good shape but I don't have to tell you what if would have been like if conditions were different.
As a result of this experience, we took the step on installing towing signs at the entrances of our roads. Our intent is to inhibit people from parking on the side of our private road AND to put ourselves in position to do something about it ( tow ) if conditions are such that it is necessary to protect our community members and others. The towing company will tow ONLY if authorized by the Board of the ACC so if you come upon a dangerous situation that warrants considering this significant action please notify one of us immediately.
In summary, we want you to know why the signs were installed. Again, it is all about protecting our residents, the ACC and those visiting our neighborhood. This is NOT a step to tow cars that inhibit snow removal. That is important too but we have a well established process of warning and fining to help us make sure we can keep our roads clear and safe during snow removal time.
Please let us know if you have any questions or input.
Bob Thomas, Adam Cooper and Dave Harja
