Snow Removal Procedure Reminders

Dear Owners,

As you are aware, we are predicted to have our first snowstorm of the season starting Sunday night with the potential for significant plowable snow totals. The weather forecast is also calling for the potential mixture of rain/ice which will create slippery conditions. With this first storm, we would like to remind you:

1. Please follow the parking and snow removal rules for the Association. Vehicles parked inappropriately make it very difficult for the snow contractor to perform clean-up and can create unsafe conditions.

2. Prepare for the winter season and potential for power outages by having a flashlight, batteries, water, and radio available.

3. Please maintain the heat in your unit at a minimum of 55 degrees to prevent pipes from freezing. If you will be away, we recommend providing a key to a neighbor or friend who can periodically check in on the unit.

4. If your plumbing is located on an exterior wall, open cabinets and doors to allow heat to circulate around any plumbing. Turn off water to any exterior water spigots for your unit.

5. Stay inside during the storm and only drive if absolutely necessary.

North Point Management will be open for our normal hours on Monday, 8:30 am to 5 pm. For after-hour emergency issues that involve immediate safety and property damage issues, please use our normal toll-free number of 877-423-5050. Please do not use the after-hour emergency line for snow removal issues as Owners will be charged $65 per call for non-emergency issues.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Nor’easter March 7-8, 2018

As you may be aware, the next significant snow event is anticipated for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon.  This storm is predicted to bring up to a foot of snow or more in some areas and result in difficult to impossible driving conditions during the late evening Wednesday through early Thursday morning.

We would ask for your assistance and cooperation to ensure that roadways and parking areas can be properly maintained during the storm.  Based on the current forecast we do want to note:

  •  Plowing will be performed throughout Wednesday night in an effort to keep areas accessible.
  • Rear gates are in the open position to allow the snow plow access and will be reset once snow removal is complete.
  • As the heavy snow is expected to continue into Thursday morning, conditions may be poor with only travel lanes open.  We ask that you use caution when walking outside as conditions may be slippery.
  • The best way to reach your Property Manager during the storm will be through email at pmanager@kesslerfarms.com. The North Point after hours emergency line is for emergency issues and should not be used for snow removal related items.
  • Morin’s will begin snow removal at 10 am on Thursday morning. Should snow continue throughout Thursday an additional cleanup will take place on Friday morning at 8 am.
  • Please help Morin’s and Management and  please park at your unit or at one of the club houses. The club houses for parking your vehicles are located on Glen cliff (Tinker Road Pool), Glastonbury Pool house and the Main club house next to the water tower.  Some villages have overflow parking and all residents can use the overflow parking within the community.
  • Let’s once again show a lot of courtesy to our neighbors when cleaning off the cars and getting them out of the way so Morin’s can clean up the area.
  • Morin’s will sound their horns when they are in your village doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.
  • It is also imperative that you clean off the deck on your unit PRIOR to the final clean-up so that Morin’s can remove the snow from the area.
  • Cars that impede the snow removal process will be towed.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owners responsibility to notify your tenant.

Thank you for your assistance and cooperation throughout this significant snow event.

01/04/18 Snow Storm

The Property Manager has spoken with Morin’s and they will do their best to keep the roads open during the storm. Morin’s and Management are kindly asking that NO cars park on any of the roads in the community during the hours of 8 am on Thursday (January 4, 2018) through Friday until after the final clean-up is complete in your area (January 5, 2018).  Morin’s needs to open the road to the full width in order for passing to be safe and for them to have places to put the snow. Visibility will be limited  and parking on the roads makes it dangerous for Morin’s to plow.  Please help Morin’s and Management and  please park at your unit or at one of the club houses.

The club houses for parking your vehicles are located on Glen cliff (Tinker Road Pool), Glastonbury Pool house and the Main club house next to the water tower.  Some villages have overflow parking and all residents can use the overflow parking within the community.

On Friday, January 5, 2018, Morin’s will begin the  final clean-up  starting at 9 am.

They will sound their horns when they are in your village doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.

It is also imperative that you clean off the deck on your unit PRIOR to the final clean-up so that Morin’s can remove the snow from the area.

Cars that impede the snow removal process will be towed.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owners responsibility to notify your tenant.

Let’s once again show a lot of courtesy to our neighbors when cleaning off the cars and getting them out of the way so Morin’s can clean up the area.

Please be aware that the Property Manager may send out updates should the track of the storm change.

UPCOMING SNOW STORM – FINAL CLEAN-UP

The weather stations are predicting a snow storm that could leave NH with 5-10″ inches of snow.

The Property Manager has spoken with Morin’s and they will do their best to keep the roads open during the storm.

They ask the no one park on the road leading into each Village and park at one of the three clubhouse.  Morin’s has also indicated that if all cars move in a section of buildings when they are cleaning they will try to remove as much snow in front of the garages as possible.  They will not try to squeeze into between parked cars and/or when cars have moved out of their spots.  This can become dangerous for them.

The clubhouse for parking your vehicles are located on Glen cliff (Tinker Road Pool), Glastonbury Pool house and the Main clubhouse next to the water tower.  Some villages  have overflow parking and all residents can use the overflow parking within the community.

In speaking with Morin’s, some weather models are predicting the storm to be moving out of the area by Saturday evening.

Starting on SUNDAY, APRIL 2, 2017 –  they will begin the final clean-up  starting at 9:00 AM.  This date may change if it continues to snow into the late morning or early afternoon.  Please check you email for updates.

They will sound their horns when they are in your village doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.

Cars that impede the snow removal process will be towed.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owners responsibility to forward this email message to your tenant.

Let’s once again show a lot of courtesy to our neighbors when cleaning off the cars and getting them out of the way so Morin’s can clean up the area.

A message from our Property Manager on the snowstorm.

Good Afternoon,

This incoming storm is a hard one to get some accurate information on.  It appears it will start as snow by 7 pm in Southern NH  (but looking outside my office windows is snowing pretty good right now) followed by sleet and ending with rain.

Since we are not sure what is going to happen Monday into Tuesday (January 23-24,2017) there will not be any final clean-up on TuesdayJanuary 24, 2017–  at this point.

If it is determined that a final clean-up is needed, I will be done on WednesdayJanuary 25, 2017 – and I will send out the email blast with final clean-up instructions.

Please be drive safely.

The current forecast:

NH1 First Alert Weather Warning: Storm hits NH with icy mix of snow, sleet Monday night into Tuesday

By:  Ryan Breton

NH1 Meteorologist

A storm that brought severe weather, flooding rains, and tornadoes to the southeast over the weekend is headed in our direction.

This incoming storm will be loaded with moisture, but the lack of deep cold air will prevent this from being a pure snowstorm. Instead, a variety of precipitation will hit the Granite State.

Some scattered snow showers are possible this afternoon and evening, but steady snow holds off until after the evening commute.

Snow will begin in southern New Hampshire between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday. Some sleet may mix in initially, but as the column of air cools, a burst of snow is expected. Precipitation will overspread the northern half of New Hampshire after 10 p.m., taking until after midnight to reach the North Country.

Once the precipitation starts, it’ll ramp up quickly, with the heaviest falling overnight into Tuesday morning.

Milder air will move in aloft toward dawn, while temperatures at the ground will remain near or below freezing. This sets up a messy mix. Near the seacoast and in southeastern New Hampshire, temperatures should rise above freezing, with a plain rain for the morning commute. However, north and west of Nashua, it may be quite icy with a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow.

Steady precipitation will come to an end during Tuesday morning, with scattered areas of freezing rain into Tuesday afternoon. I don’t expect temperatures to rise much at all on Tuesday, so icy spots will linger inland.

Another important element of this storm will be the wind. East-northeasterly gusts to 50 mph are possible near the coast and in some of the hilly terrain. This may cause scattered power outages, especially in areas with snow and ice.

There may also be some minor coastal flooding, beach erosion, and splashover for a few hours surrounding Tuesday’s 8:41 a.m. high tide at the seacoast.

Snow totals will depend on how much sleet mixes in. If sleet mixes in early, then the lower end of the ranges are expected. If the precipitation falls as snow for a longer period of time, higher amounts will occur.

Snow Procedure – 2/10/15 & Trash/Recycling Pick-up Delay

FB_IMG_1422893730804 (1)The Property Manager spoke with Morin’s this morning, they indicated they will start the final clean-up on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, starting at 9 am.  They will sound their horns when they are in your area doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.

With all the snow we have had in a short amount of time, it is increasingly getting harder to put snow in their normal locations when plowing.  Morin’s and Management is asking that when Morin’s is the area, that ALL cars be out of the way.  This means that no car should be in the way of the clean-up by either parking on the sides of the roads and leaving it there or not moving your car because you have shoveled around it. Your vehicle will be towed if you are impeding the snow removal process.

If you can’t park your vehicle in your driveways or garage, please park at one of the clubhouses (located on Tinker Road, Glastonbury Drive and Kessler Farm Drive).   Many villages have overflow parking as well.

Shoveling of decks should be done PRIOR to the final clean-up.  If you shovel your deck after the clean-up is complete in your area, it will be your responsibility to remove the snow.

Walkers, dog walkers, and children should continue to be aware of the limited visibility due to the high snowbanks and make way for plows.  You may be able to see and hear them, but they may not be able to see you.20150205_103453

Waste Management has informed the Property Manager that trash/recycle pick-up will delayed by one day this week.  Trash/recycle will be picked up on Friday, February 13, 2015.  DO NOT put your barrels and bins out before 8:00pm on Thursday, February 12, 2015.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owner’s responsibility to provide this information to the tenant.  You can forward the email sent by the Property Manager or direct them to
