Need to Know
The Board of Directors have been working closely with the Management Company and other vendor partners on several projects that center on improvements, modernization, and safety with a focus on long term savings of maintenance costs.  These projects are now moving forward and residents will see activity beginning the week of July 18, 2022.
 
Every measure is being taken to minimize disruption and to keep you informed as work progresses. 
 
1. Replacement of the gates and cameras at both entrances will provide a more attractive entry, designed to include additional safety measures for high traffic situations and modernized with a state of the art windshield reader stickers to replace key fobs. Since gate maintenance is one of our largest maintenance cost the return on investment will be quickly realized. There will also be enhancements to the gates at the swimming pool and sports court.
 
Prep work will begin during week of July 18 and only in areas to not interrupt residents and guests.  You can expect to receive updates as the project progresses including how to receive the windshield sticker. 
 
2. Additional lighting at the parking lots and recreation areas, designed to increase safety and better prevent costly vandalism.   The lighting will work in tandem with the time controlled lights at the entrances, dusk to dawn. 
 
Required trenching will begin next week and parking could be compromised and limited temporarily perhaps increasing parking along Sable Canyon and Mesa Draw.  If you or your guests need to park temporarily on the street please be careful to not block residents driveways.
 
3.  Lastly, Google fiber.  Though we don’t have definite dates we are continually in discussion with their representatives.  Prior to the beginning of installation we will meet with the Google project team to discuss timelines, schedules, logistics and the build plan.  We will continue to provide updates on dates and what you can expect as the project moves forward.
 
The Board and Management Company are committed to facilitating projects that meet the needs of the community while tightly managing expenses, and we promise to keep the residents informed.

A Message from the Board of Directors regarding the Gates
Posted on Mar 16th, 2022
From the Board.... This message is to update the community on the status of the gate repairs and advise what’s planned for a long term solution.

First, we want to thank you for your patience and understanding during the past month as we work through issues getting the gates operational.  Regrettably the age of the mechanics and ongoing supply issues presented additional challenges for quick repair.  

Unfortunately after replacement of the cell boards to upgrade to 4G, as necessary, a faulty board now must be replaced.  We are concerned that spare boards are not readily available and will be addressing as appropriate.  Until the board is installed the gates on Sable Canyon will remain locked open.

Long term the solution is replacement and modernization of the gates, providing better mechanics and a more attractive entrance.  Meetings are moving forward with a gate vendor to review recommendations and make final decisions to move forward, posthaste.  As you are probably aware this item was budgeted for 2021 but held back because of supply chain and labor shortage issues.

For you, we have created a new page on the MG HOA website “Gates” where we will post information and provide updates as the replacement project moves forward.  Again thank you for your continued patience and as always we welcome your comments, feedback and suggestions.  We also encourage your attendance at the quarterly meeting of the Board.
