Happy New Year 2017!

Happy New Year to all the owners and residents of the Haven. We wish you all a wonderful 2017.

Our gym opened up December 1st and is already widely used by residents. We have two treadmills, some free weights and mats for a workout.

We also have a new management company - MRCM Maple Ridge Community management and look forward to working with them to improve services in the building

I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

The new gymnasium is on its way to being ready. We need to install cameras for safety and security and then get access rules and regs put together to cover liability.

Hopefully in the next month or so we will open it up for use.

At the AGM several folks mentioned volunteering weights and bicycles.

If you have rubber weights in the 5ib to 25ib range we could use a set.

Also a recumbent or upright bicycle.

There are two treadmills at the moment and mats for weights.

If you can volunteer anything email us

P1 Lobby painted

Today your Board members, Sura and Roma, painted the P1 lobby. After several years of builders paint it is nice to see it looking updated and sharp.

The walls are a nice gray and the doors white. Let's try and keep them looking this way!

Summer Time!

The summer heat is here and we can start to enjoy it.

A word of caution though, please make sure your HVAC is kept clean, they produce about a gallon of condensation an hour in this weather and if your drain plugs up that is bad.

Also, as we start to make use of the roof BBQs be mindful of the people beneath you just as you are when in you are in your unit. Heavy feet, jumping and running all bother your neighbours, especially dragging tables around. You should leave the tables where they are but if you must move them, pick them up and place them gently. Don't drag and drop.

Finally, please do not walk on the stones - the noise they generate is quite loud for the people below. It also disturbs their distribution and can impact the roofing material below them.

Post Office box Finally Ready

Finally, after only three months of waiting for the installers and post office people to pass a key between them, the post box in the lobby is available for use.

You can mail letters safely through the letter slot.

Of course, if you get a letter incorrectly addressed to you, write the correct address or some note on it and pop it in the letter box for the post office to deal with properly.

Parcels will be left in the boxes as per there size.

If you get a parcel, you MUST return the key after retrieving your parcel by putting it in the mail slot so it can be used for the next person.

2016 AGM

The condo corporation held its annual AGM last night. For those who attended, Thank You!
The Board relies on your support to both ensure we always achieve our meeting quorum and also to provide us with input and suggestions.

The meeting went well with numerous questions being fielded by our auditor and the Board. As is normal each year, one position for Director was open - with Ryan Ahonen's elected time period ending. As he is busy with other Board's and is no longer an Owner he declined to run again. We want to thank Ryan for all his work over the past two years - he was indispensable.

The position as Director was filled by acclamation by Roma Black. Welcome Roma!

The Board looks forward to continuing their efforts to provide the corporation with effective governance and ensuring a safe, efficient, friendly building.

Remember, we all need to do our part in keeping the building clean and safe. If you see something inappropriate or unsafe report it to TAG so they can follow-up.

I am looking forward to Spring and getting outside again for BBQs and sunshine.

I noticed that Google is changing their direction a bit and requiring folks who want to follow the blog to have a google account. I hope you all continue to support the blog. Thanks

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Well, it has been a few months since my last post. A busy time for me.

This is our second official Christmas season in the building. Things are starting to look up I think and I look forward to 2016.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and productive 2016
