May Board Project Updates

5-1-2024

Fiber-optic update:

Encompass now has the GPR – Ground Penetrating Radar machine – working effectively to map the water and electrical lines in Fairfield Harbour as they bore the new fiber lines. This will speed up the process and increase accuracy. The drilling is finished quickly, so the noise should not last more than a day if they work in front of your home. Encompass has a second crew that has started recently, totaling more than 30 employees. This week, they have begun Albatross Drive and are moving from Coral Reef Drive to Coral Reef Ct.

 

Special events committee:

The first Music under the Stars event of the season was a blast! FH danced and sang along to the Bears. Here is the calendar for the 2024 Season.

 

Birdland Marina: The two-slip pedestals for Birdland Marina are en route and almost ready for installation. The old pedestals are past their lifespan and need replacing. Our maintenance staff will add the cleats to the dock.

 

Inner Harbour Bulk Heads: The repairs of the Inner Harbor seawall from the Shoreline Marina northward, which was budgeted for fiscal year 2023, are completed. The stainless-steel tiebacks, waterproofing, gravel, backfilling, support structure, panels, landscaping, and clean-up look great and should serve us well for the next 30 years! The 2024 budget covers repairing the additional seawall and the Shoreline Marina.

 

Harbour Club: The test pit excavations were successful and worth the precautionary effort. We do not need helical piers to support the foundation. This extra step showed that the helical piers weren't necessary, saving over 400k in materials and site work. The AIA contract has been sent to the appropriate parties for review.


Billboard: The Billboard is up and working! We will put specials and inform the public about Harbour Pointe Golf Club and The Pointe Restaurant. Harbour Pointe Golf Club has a new, shorter, and easier URL to remember – www.HPGC.golf 



Harbour Pointe Golf Club (HPGC) Marketing: The enhancement committee is planning the 2024 ad campaign for HPGC. The 2023 winter campaign significantly increased reciprocal rounds of golf.  

 

New FHPOA Platform: www.FH-POA.com is getting a new look. AppFolio is currently the platform for paying dues online, and we use Front Steps to house our documents. All our documents will now migrate to one platform - AppFolio. It is a user-friendly platform and will streamline and simplify the resident experience and upgrade our online payment portals. Our critical documents will be on the home page as you scroll through. It will be user-friendly on laptop, tablet, and mobile formats. Stay tuned for when it is ready to go live.

 

Paperless Billing for Annual POA dues: The annual POA dues billing went paperless this year, streamlining the process and saving you money on postage and printing. You should have received your annual dues starting March 1, 2024, via email. If you did not receive the email, please call the POA office at 252-633-5500. Remember payments are due by May 1, 2024, 4:30 pm. To ensure a hassle-free experience, please be sure your primary email is listed in Appfolio (our trusted payment portal) is the primary contact. Let's embrace this modern approach together!


Banner Program: Four Clubs bought new banners: Chorus, Road Gang, Castaways, and The Quilters. If your club wants a banner, contact David Pfefferkorn at dfpfeff@gmail.com or 252-229-7245.

 

Stormwater: All budgeted swales are complete.

 

Roads and Streets: The committee is negotiating the cart path repaving contract.  

The Sinkhole on Gondolier Drive (the one that had major repairs a couple of years ago): CWS is aware- they've put extra cones in the area and are installing a piece of sheet metal over it. The lines will be cleaned to allow a camera to see what exactly is happening so that a plan can be developed to fix what's going on underneath the road and then the road itself. Use caution in this area.

 

Road work on Caracara in the 1700 block: CWS is aware of the erosion in the repair area that was removed several weeks ago, and they plan to fill it in so it won't be so bumpy. At some point in the near future, it will be repaved.
