While this was a very unusual year with the Covid-19 pandemic, your Board continued to meet via Zoom. It was not possible to hold the annual meeting in person; therefore, packets of information from the Architectural Committee, Recreation Committee, Grounds Committee, and budget were delivered to all 198 households in July. A slate of officers along with three new directors was presented in this packet, and receiving no objection were considered elected.
The Grounds Committee continues to work on the removal of aged and storm damaged trees throughout the Common area grounds. A reserve fund has been set up in the anticipation of the need to remove approximately 68 trees throughout the Commons area due to emerald ash bore infestation. Mowing, fertilizing and weed control as well as spot spraying for thistles and brush control in the area along Scrip Road continues on schedule. The front entrance sign was updated with new landscaping this past year.
The Recreation Committee moved forward with the addition of an additional playset to the Asbury Drive playground, repainted the basketball court, and continue to provide maintenance to the ball diamond and the two additional playgrounds.
The Architectural Committee keeps busy with reviewing plans for new construction, improvement projects and complaints. Members are encouraged to use the Asbury website and read “Rules and Regulations of Architectural Control Committee” for questions and answers to any upcoming projects that members plan to make. The issue of fencing, as well as garden fencing, comes up often and it is suggested to check the bylaws and covenants for the proper procedure.

Your board and committee members work countless hours on various projects in helping to keep Asbury a truly great place to live and raise families. We thank the residents for their genuine regard and consideration that has been shown for our neighborhood.
