Thanks to Dan Sjoquist!

This week Dan Sjoquist resigned as a Director on Victor Gardens Single Family Village Homeowner Association’s Board. He decided to step down for personal reasons.
Dan has been a valuable partner in the leadership of two of our neighborhood associations.  During the last year, he helped steer our Single Family and Master Associations through a complex transition from Victor Garden's developer.  His volunteer commitment began long before he was elected to the Board last April. His continuing expertise helped build a stronger financial future for Victor Gardens. 
Thanks to Dan for his leadership and dedication. We wish him all the best, and thank him for his work on behalf of residents.

Please Remove Your Contractor Signs

Six months have passed since May's tornado and hail storm. At its December 16 meeting, the Single Family Village Board agreed that it was the right time to ask homeowners to remove contractor signs.  The Board wishes to remind homeowners of Section 7 in the Victor Gardens Covenants. Please remove your signs advertising contractors, renovators, roofers, etc.  
The SFV Board also discussed the number of signs regularly seen throughout Victor Gardens, advertising other neighborhoods or non-affiliated builders outside of Victor Gardens. A homeowner also informed the Board of the aesthetic and safety issues with so many signs (large and small) at the entrances to Victor Gardens.  These signs are often placed close together blocking the view of oncoming traffic. 
The SFV Board will begin work towards Master Covenants compliance (related to signs) with SFV residents, the Master Board, and report (sign) safety concerns to the City of Hugo. 

Clarification of Items Requiring ARC Review

At its December 16 meeting, the Single Family Village Board clarified items requiring Architectural Change Applications (related to existing homes and landscapes).  These applications will continue to be reviewed by the SFV ARC.
The list of items requiring homeowner submitted Architectural Change Applications includes: Exterior paint color, siding materials, shingles, fencing, outdoor (non-holiday) lighting, landscaping, driveways, side walks, paths, retaining walls, home additions, outbuildings, garden structures, arbors, pergolas, trellises, gutters, decks, whirlpools, spas, hot tubs, permanent/ semi-permanent private pools*, permanent/ semi-permanent swing sets & play equipment*, permanent/ semi-permanent trampolines*, permanent/ semi-permanent basketball hoops* * for the purposes of this list “permanent/ semi-permanent” means in place for more than one day.  Certain play equipment may be used temporarily, meaning one day or less, but not left in place overnight.
Please contact Josh Berger, SFV ARC Chair with any questions about this list.  Downloadable PDF copies of the ARC Application is available via the following link:
Items specifically not reviewed by the SFV ARC are animals, parking (including RV's, boats, snowmobiles, and using garages for storage areas preventing parking inside, etc.), signs, satellite dishes, home-based businesses, timeshares, etc.  These items are regulated by the SFV’s and the Master Association’s governing documents.

NDP Will Complete Some Unfinished Developer Projects

Ron Mehl, Single Family Village Board Member and Neighborhood Development Partners Inc.'s representative has reported that NDP will install, at their expense, two remaining unbuilt postal stations and Grantaire Lane cul-de-sac outlot landscaping (grading, sprinklers, sod, trees). Construction will likely begin in Spring 2009.  According to Mr. Mehl, installing new boulevard trees will be the responsibility of builders.

I-35E / Anoka County Hwy 14 Construction Project

Plans to tame the busy interchange of I-35E and Anoka County Hwy. 14, are now available online. (Frenchman Road, a.k.a. Washington County Hwy. 8 becomes Anoka Hwy. 14 and Centerville's Main St. as it travels West into Lino Lakes and across I-35E into Centerville). A new interchange will move traffic faster across the Interstate, and provide room for a future 200-car "Park & Ride"across from Bobby & Steve's.  
According to Anoka County, 
"The project will be constructed starting in the Spring of 2009.  Construction is expected to be 

finished by the end of 2010. 

The project includes many improvements.  Key components of the project include the following: 

Adding lanes on Main Street. 

Constructing a center median along Main Street to reduce intersection conflict points. 

Replace and lengthen freeway entrance and exit ramps. 

Construct three traffic signals. 

Adding turn-lanes at public street intersections with Main Street. "

Beavers Causing Damage, Trapping Planned

Single-family homeowners living near the Jardin fountain should be aware that the City of Hugo has contacted a trapper to solve a beaver problem.  Beavers have been destroying trees near the pond behind homes near the south west corner of Victor Gardens (near the Lino Lakes border). An experienced trapper will place traps underwater (approved by the DNR).  Please be aware that these traps pose a potential hazard for people. Scott Anderson, City of Hugo's new Public Works Director advises residents (and any pets) to stay out of the water near these areas until the beaver is trapped.

Proposed Xcel Power Line Route Through Victor Gardens

LaVonne Fitzgerald, Master Board Member from the Villas Association has been gathering information about the proposed power line and has met with City of Hugo staff about the topic.  They have shared a few renderings that show Xcel's proposed route through Hugo and Victor Gardens.  It is believed that the City Council will discuss this at their November 3 City Council Meeting.  Interested residents should call City Hall as that date approaches, to verify if they will be discussing this at the meeting.
 UPDATE 10/16:  The following info was published in the most recent edition of The Citizen:  "Directed staff to review options for the construction of a new feeder distribution power line extending southwest from the Waters Edge neighborhood through Victor Gardens into Anoka County. Xcel Energy requested approval to construct the line in its right-of-way. More discussion will take place at the Oct. 20 council meeting." -written by Aaron Rupar

Single Family Village - Oct. 21 Board Meeting Agenda Available

The Agenda for the October 21 Single Family Village Homeowners Association Board Meeting is now available for download on our resident website's  Single Family Village page.    Information such as meeting minutes and financial documents were updated as recently as yesterday.  
In addition to other important topics on the Agenda, the Board will re-visit the Association's Pet Policy.  This issue has been discussed at the SFV and Master meetings for months.  It appears that a conclusion is likely at the meeting.  The Victor Gardens Community Association (Master) Board has asked the Single Family Village Association to consider changes to our Pet Policy, which will likely be adopted by the Master Association later.  Our Community Manager, Casey Groff, is in the process of drafting new rules, mainly dealing with the leash control of dogs. The rules are expected to align closely with the relatively new Hugo City Pet Ordinance (link here.) This item has been added to Oct. 21 meeting's agenda.  Residents with opinions about changes to our Pet Policy are asked to speak at the Oct. 21 Board Meeting.  The Board will consider the options, listen to residents, and will likely make a final determination at the meeting.

Meeting starts at 6:00PM, on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at Hugo City Hall.  All SFV residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Xcel Plans Another Elevated Electrical Line through Victor Gardens

At the last Hugo City Council Meeting (Oct. 6, 2008) Hugo city staff discussed with Hugo's City Council a new Xcel Energy plan to build an additional electrical feeder distribution line through parts of Hugo.  Xcel plans a (35,000 volt) line to run through parts of Victor Gardens' commercial and town homes areas on 45' tall poles along side the existing elevated power line.  Xcel's existing line can be seen near Kindergardens Day Care Center, Sertino's, Victor Square, our Neighborhood Activity Center, and portions of the Gables Association.
Xcel currently has a utility right-of-way easement along the existing line and wants to construct an additional above-ground electrical line that would run parallel to the existing line.  The City Council was informed by city staff of Xcel's desire to install an above-ground line rather than a more costly buried line.  
The Council discussed Xcel's plan, and voted to direct City staff to immediately begin working on alternative options, such as burying the cables, and other options. This discussion was part of the City Council's Oct. 6 Agenda (New Business Item J-3.  Minutes for the meeting have not been posted to Hugo's website yet, but the discussion is currently able to be viewed on cable subscribers channel 16 (Govt. TV).  
The issue is scheduled to be taken up again at the next City Council meeting.  
UPDATE 10/7/08: 
This afternoon I emailed our Hugo City Council Member, Becky Petryk; City Administrator, Mike Ericson; and Community Development Director , Bryan Bear.  I offered to publish and email any updates to Victor Gardens residents about information updates regarding the progress of this issue.
Council Member Petryk responded quickly to my email and wrote back in part, "This electric line is a very important issue and we will do our best to minimize the impact to our residents. Mike will keep me updated on any meetings and or progress in working out an acceptable solution."    I expect that we will find out more information within the next few days.

Gables Association New Website

Charles Kirk was the webmaster for our Gables Association website. Due to his relocation to Utah, we no longer have access to update that website. The Gables Association Board of Directors feels there is still value in having a website for our association. We are in the process of establishing a new website. Please start using the new website for information regarding the Gables Association. We still have alot of work to do to get this completed and appreciate your patience during this period of transition. June Fulton President Board of Directors, Gables

Thanks to Tony Schwab for coordinating aeration services for many homeowners.  Tony has also been coordinating with another lawncare professional, Shawn from Classic Lawnscape. Shawn is offering to perform seasonal blowing out and shut-down of resident's individual sprinkler systems.  In the past, Shawn worked with Tony quite a lot in planting perennials earlier this season, and has also worked alot in Victor Gardens on our community sprinkler systems.
Shawn's price for blowing-out sprinklers will be $50.00 per home.  He plans on performing the work around Oct. 20 - 25th.

VG's Intranet Site deleted

The original Victor Gardens "Intranet" site and the Victor Gardens original marketing website were apparently both recently removed from the internet.
In recent years the Intranet site had not been updated much, except for the Activity Center's calendar. A few months ago, the Intranet site was essentially abandoned. At this point, it's unclear why the site was removed.

Pool Closed for the Season - Security Upgrades Planned

The Victor Gardens pool has now been closed for the season.  It is expected to open again in time for the next Memorial Day weekend.  Residents concerned about vandalism that occurred this past summer can look forward to future security upgrades to the pool area and Neighborhood Activity Center.  The Victor Gardens Community Association (Master) Board is considering options including upgraded and motion sensitive lighting, security cameras, and devices for after-hours monitoring of the area.

FTTH Agreement Reviewed by Master Board

Internet servers and related equipment owned by FTTH Communications is currently located within one of the buildings owned by the Victor Gardens Community Association (the Master Association).  Lightblast subscribers may be familiar with FTTH as their internet provider.  In the past the company was closely associated with Victor Gardens former Developer, CPDC, and Homer Tompkins.  Unfortunately, FTTH's equipment is currently stored and electrically powered at the Master Association's expense.  With the departure of CPDC and Homer Tompkins from Victor Gardens, questions are now being raised about the agreement between FTTH and the VGCA (Master Association) before it was transitioned to homeowner control.  
The current Master Board has contacted FTTH, and is investigating the arrangement. According to a report from the last Master Board Meeting, the arrangement was apparently verbally agreed to by FTTH and Homer Tompkins.  Furthermore, since the agreement was verbal the Board researched it's legality.  Also reported: According to Minnesota law, agreements such as this must be in writing.
While the Master Association was still under CPDC control, and while I was Single Family Village Liaison last year, I raised this question with Mr. Tompkins and the Board   At that time I was told there was an agreement in place to store FTTH's equipment within the building, and I was given the impression that the Association was being compensated for storage and reimbursed for the significant monthly electricity expense.  Now it appears that neither were true.
The Board will continue further discussions with FTTH, keeping in mind the ongoing internet service needs of Victor Gardens Lightblast subscribers, charging a fair rent to FTTH, and other terms as they relate to protecting and compensating the Master Association in the future.

Master Board Examines Master Pet Policy

At the last Master Board Meeting, the Board briefly considered changes to the Master Pet Policy. The Board did not vote on the issue at the time.  Board Members and our Community Manager, Casey Groff will re-examine some of the new policy's details.  It is very likely that a new Pet Policy will closely resemble the City of Hugo's recently adopted Animal Ordinance.  The Board is expected to discuss the issue again, and vote on the Pet Policy's final language at a future Board Meeting.

Neighborhood Activity Center Security

Casey Groff, Victor Gardens Community Manager, has been working to tighten security at the Neighborhood Activity Center.  The building's locks have been re-keyed, and keys will be more closely controlled in the future.  

Residents wishing to reserve the Neighborhood Activity Center should contact Casey.  Click here for the Master Association page (including contact info).

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Charles Kirk for his participation on the Board. He has resigned as of August 20th due to family relocating to Utah.

Message About Recent Vandalism

A message to all residents from Victor Gardens Community Association (Master) Board of Directors:
Dear Victor Gardens Homeowner,
The Board of Directors would like to make you aware of recent vandalism to the community pool and bathhouse the night of July 31st. 
This is the 2nd time this season the pool has been vandalized.  As many of you are aware, earlier in the season, the pool had to be drained and closed due to vandalism.
Management believes the persons responsible are most likely children or adolescents, as it has been reported that kids have been hopping over the fence.
The Board of Directors recognizes that this is a problem and is asking all Homeowners to be on high alert.  If you notice any suspicious activity before, during, or after pool hours, please contact the Washington County Sherriff’s Department immediately.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Department is aware of this problem.  Since the incident on July 31st, they have been patrolling the neighborhood during late afternoon/evening shift as well as the early a.m. shift. 
Please direct any questions and or concerns to Casey Groff with Community Development, Inc. at 763-225-6498 or
Thank you,
Master Board of Directors
Victor Gardens Community Association

Construction of Clinic Building Expected to Resume

The nearly completed, vacant commercial building located on near Victor Gardens main entrance may soon resume construction.  A Pharmacy may eventually take up some of the retail space within the building.  The tall weeds were trimmed on the property this week as reports of an agreement between Fairview and Northern Lights Pediatric Clinic were published in Hugo's The Citizen newspaper.  Click here to read Deb Barnes story.

A group of us are trying to get a neighborhood yard sale organized for all of Victor Gardens (townhomes and single family residents).  People are encouraged to have it in their own garages and we'll all chip in for advertising and sign costs.  Depending on the number of entrants, most likely the cost will only be $5/person.  Advertising will be done in The Citizen, White Bear Press and St. Paul Pioneer Press.  Here are the dates/times we'll be having the sale.  Please note you do not have to be open during all of these dates/times.  Several families are just going to be open on Saturday.
