Reminders & Updates:


Annual Property Inspections (API):


First round of APIs are currently in progress with regular inspections occurring in each precinct simultaneously every business day, weather permitting. First rounds of inspections are scheduled to be completed by Memorial Day Weekend, May 27, 2022. With the warmer weather approaching, here are some common Spring cleaning items to consider:


· Clean dirt, debris, and mildew from siding, gutters, and soffits

· Paint condition of exterior, including siding, door/window trim, shutters, etc.

· Routine maintenance of lawn/landscaping

· Repair any maintenance issues with fences and driveways


Should you require making significant improvements or modifications, such as replacing fences, windows, doors, or repainting your home, etc. please submit a Property Improvement Request (PIR) form found on our website at www.montclairva.com under Forms & Documents and follow the instructions provided.


For additional information for PIRs, and other items reviewed during APIs, please refer to Article 5 of the MPOA Community Guidelines, as well as the MPOA Amended Deed of Declaration and Bylaws.

 

Updated Assessments - May 1, 2022 – April 30th, 2023:


The new budget has passed and assessments for the 2023 Fiscal Year (May 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023) will be $720 annually or $62/month if you choose to pay monthly ($60/month + $2 service fee).


If you have paid the annual assessments in full ($720.00), you may have noticed that only the monthly amount of $62.00 was deducted from your assessment account.

Please make all payments payable to Montclair POA. Assessments are due on May 1st, payments must be received by May 10th to avoid a late fee.

 

Committee Members Wanted!


The Communications, Covenants, and Signage Committees are looking for members to join. Here is a brief description of each committee:


Ad Hoc Signage Committee research, discuss, and will develop a plan to secure professional design options to replace current Montclair signs that are consistent in material, style, and theme, while also embodying the "Montclair Community." Signs for consideration are all entrance, beach, and event signs.


The Covenants Committee reviews Property Improvement Requests and assures that properties are maintained in a manner providing for visual harmony and soundness of repair, avoiding activities deleterious to the aesthetic or property values of the property, and promoting the general welfare and safety of the owners, their guests, and other invitees.


The Communications Committee provides creative and technical methods to enhance all avenues of communications between the Board of Directors and Members of the Association, as well as suggesting methods of facilitating information flow from sources outside of the Montclair community.


If you would like to join, please fill out the form located at the bottom of the Committees page on the MPOA website - https://www.montclairva.com/committees & email it to execassist@montclairva.com

VCE Presentation: “Lake Montclair’s Last Line of Defense”

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 | 7:00PM via Zoom

Attention all Montclairions, interested in swimming, boating, and fishing in Lake Montclair? The ability to enjoy recreational activities is increasingly under threat. Sediment and nutrient loading continue to impact water quality and will eventually make the lake unusable.


Remember last year’s Harmful Algae Bloom? Everyone in Montclair can make a difference in protecting the lake. Nancy Berlin, a Natural Resources Specialist in Water Quality, crafted a presentation specifically for Lake Montclair because of the Harmful Algae Bloom last summer. The VCE partners with VA Tech and Virginia State University to educate the public on Virginia’s Natural Resources.


To learn more about water quality and how to improve it in Lake Montclair attend the Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) presentation scheduled on May 24th at 7PM. Click here to register.
