Pool 2020

Updated August 8th

Homeowners should have received a letter or email on June 22 detailing the Board’s discussion on this topic. If you have not received this notice, contact  AMS.

An update was sent July 20th.

The pool opening was contingent on Washington, Multnomah, and Clackamas Counties all being approved for Phase 2 and our Association’s ability to meet all of the County and State requirements. So far, the counties are failing to meet three of the six benchmarks

For information on Washington County’s COVID-19 response, see Washington County reopening. (updated July 8) 

As of August 8th, there is no indication that Washington County will apply for phase 2 any time soon. The tri-county area is still failing to meet three of the six public health indicators. (See OHA)

The PKW Board decided against spending HOA monies preparing for an opening that may not even be possible this summer.

The bottom line is, the pool will not open this season.

Items for sale and DIY home improvement

Peterkort Woods is a unique townhouse community.  The quality of design and construction is far above other attached home developments in the metro area.   This can sometimes present a challenge when trying to find replacement hardware or fixtures that fit our space.

 

If you are having trouble finding the correct air filter or central vacuum part, look here. https://peterkortwoodshoa.com/home-improvement-and-maintenance/home-improvementmaintenance/

If you have been successful finding items for your home, let me know so I can post it for the community.

Burglaries in the neighborhood

Early Sunday morning, April 19, 2020, at least three townhouses in Peterkort Woods were burglarized.

It looks like the incidents occurred between midnight and 5am.   No force was used to enter homes.  One may have been unlocked.  In another case, a garage door opener was taken from a vehicle on the street and the suspect entered through the garage.

The homeowners were home at the time in all cases but were unaware of the crimes until later in the morning.

We live in a relatively safe neighborhood and burglaries to occupied dwellings, especially townhouses, are rare.  However, I would suggest the following precautions be taken.

  • Lock all the doors on your vehicles and home
  • Don’t leave valuables in your vehicles (even in your garage)
  • Lock the entry door from the garage to the lower level of your home
  • Keep your porch light on at night
  • Consider installing a front entry camera

If you have been the victim of a crime, please report it to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.  The non-emergency phone number is 503-629-0111.

Annual Homeowners’ meeting 2019

UPDATE: 8/13/19  Gerald Amrein and Barb Purdy were unanimously elected to the Board of Directors last night.  

 

The Renaissance at Peterkort Woods Homeowner’s Association Annual Meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 12, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.  Registration will begin at 6:00 p.m.  It is recommended that you attend early to prevent a line at the door.  The meeting will be held at the Peterkort Woods Clubhouse located at 10353 SW Taylor Street, Portland, OR 97225.  

 

It is very important that any Homeowner who will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting complete a proxy and return it to TMG, Association Management Services NW prior to the Annual Meeting. If a quorum is not established, the meeting will need to be rescheduled and additional notices sent, which in turn will cost the Association additional monies. 

Peterkort Woods HOA communications

There are several ways to keep in touch with members of your community and stay apprised of upcoming events.

News and information is posted on https://peterkortwooodshoa.com

Our management company’s website is: https://ams-nw.com/owner-resources/portal-login

Please note:  Many of us wondered why we stopped getting announcements from the HOA.  After some sleuthing, we discovered that when AMS upgraded their system, they kept only one email active per account.  If someone in your household stopped getting email communications, you can log in and activate or re-activate your email

Festivities begin and end on the Great Lawn

The best way to build a community is to know your neighbors.  We invite you to take a little time out of your busy summer and participate.

National Night Out is a program that helps build relationships and triumphs over a culture that sometimes isolates us from each other.

Our goal is to have fun and build a healthier, safer connected community.

Windows at PKWHOA

Recently, a neighbor sent me the following email:

 

We recently had our windows washed. In the process the washers indicated

that a few of our windows had lost their seal. As original owners we

contacted JeldWen for an inspection.

 

Today the representative of JeldWen conducted his examination of our

windows. He identified 42 windows in our end unit for replacement.

 

Currently, scheduling for the replacements is out beyond the middle of August.

 

Fortunately, as an original owner we are covered by the warranty.  Others

may not be as fortunate.”

 

The warranty I read stated, “We warrant to the original owner for which the products and components as identified below are initially installed…” It appears that secondary owners may not be covered.

If you have questions, I would call Jeld-Wen (or other manufacturer if applicable).

Here is the website for contacting Jeld-Wen:

Their phone number is: 800.535.3936
