Trash removal and recycling reminder

MD’s Trash Removal has asked us to remind residents of the following guidelines for recycling and trash removal:

Do not place your recyclables in trash/plastic bags

Do not include paints, chemicals, or small appliances.  Compacting paints/chemicals will damage the truck’s hydraulic system, leave stains on the asphalt, and could also cause a fire within the truck. Nashua provides a few ‘hazardous waste days’ throughout the year whereby residents can bring their hazardous waste to the transfer station at no cost.

Please place all trash barrels/cans as close to the parking lot as possible. This will speed up the process.

Updated Pool Hours

Effective today,  the new hours for the use of the pools will be 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. The change is being made so we can properly clean the pool areas early in the morning.

We want to thank you all for your help and cooperation.

Pools to open June 18 with new rules

The following guidelines apply to the use of the swimming pools at The Villages of Kessler Farms effective immediately in accordance with State recommendations regarding COVID-19:

  • Pools will be open to Kessler Farm RESIDENTS AND FAMILY ONLY.
  • The Tinker Road pool is being designated for seniors (60+) and people with disabilities.
  • The capacity of the pool deck is limited as follows:
    • Glastonbury Pool – 20 people
    • Main Club House Pool – 20 people
    • Tinker Road Pool -14 people
  • Please limit your pool activity to 2-hour blocks to allow more openings for other residents.

Watering Guidelines for 2020

Summer is nearly upon us and the Board of Directors would like to remind the
residents of The Village at Kessler Farm of the following rules:

  • Watering of the lawns and flower beds will be allowed only during
    following hours: 5:00am -9:00am and 5:00pm -9:00pm.
  • It is strongly recommended, but not a strict requirement, that watering be
    accomplished in the morning period since watering in the evening
    increases the risk of lawn damage from pests and other infestations.
  • Watering for any given area should not be any longer than 45 minutes.

These Watering Rules were adopted as a result of the recommendations
received from Morin’s Landscaping. Although the City of Nashua has not
adopted formal water restrictions, the Board believes that prudent conservation
will not only preserve a valuable resource but will also eliminate wastefully
watering yielding important savings to our community.

If you are watering outside the Rules outlined above, the Board has instructed
management to issue a warning letter to the offending Unit Owner. If the failure
to follow these Watering Rules continues, the Board will have no choice but to
place fines on the Unit beginning at $100.00 for the first violation.

Your cooperation and consideration are appreciated by your neighbors.
