TL;DR: The Board of Directors is requesting Tuscany residents join the Zoom meeting this coming Wednesday evening to offer input on upcoming projects like the Palermo entrance feature.
There is a lot going on in Tuscany so far this year, and more work is being planned. Here is a quick recap of some of the major projects completed so far:
- The Zaldia median has been refreshed with new lavender shrubs and rock
- The Montague median (at the Ten Mile Feeder Canal) has been refreshed with new plants and rock
- The fountain on the south side of Palermo has been repaired and a new filtration system installed
- The catch basin on Capulet has been cleaned out and ACHD added a new layer of sand
- The bulrush and cattails have been manually removed from the ponds
Projects currently in motion:
- The entrance feature on Balthasar is being renovated and turned into a planter; it will host a mixture of shrubs and flowers to provide visual appeal all year long
- The berm near the Amity entrance has been lowered to reduce runoff and is nearing completion
- The trees around Tuscany have received structural pruning and bug treatments, with a number of dead ones in the process of being removed
There are other projects the Board is anxious to get started on, and the Board meeting scheduled for this coming Wednesday evening, April 19 at 6:30pm, is the perfect opportunity for you to have a voice in the decisions made.
An especially important topic is the entrance feature on Palermo. The Board is looking for constructive feedback on the various ideas being discussed. There are community members who would like to see the feature refurbished and turned into a planter, like is being done at Balthasar, and there are others who would like to see the current structure removed entirely and something new installed. With the proceeds from the sale of the land along Eagle Road in the bank, now is the time to get this project rolling.
Also being discussed is an amendment drafted to clean up the CC&Rs surrounding parking in the subdivision and officially allow limited short term parking for RVs, travel trailers, and boats.
Please consider joining this week’s Board meeting to hear the ideas being discussed and see some of the potential plans. As always, the Zoom meeting invitation can be found on the HOA page of HomeAtTuscany.com. Simply click on “Tuscany HOA Board Meeting” on the calendar to see the agenda (once published) and access the Zoom invitation.
The Board looks forward to seeing you there!
