Unfortunately the delivery did not occur today due to the size of the truck bringing in the containers. They will try again on Tuesday, May 26. In the meantime, we’ve opened up the parking spaces for use over the weekend. We request that all 10 parking spaces in the Princeton parking lot, facing the meadow and closest to the dumpster need to be empty by 8 am Tuesday, May 26.  We will have a delivery of 2 large storage containers that will be placed in that area, so the area needs to be clear for the delivery.

UPDATE: The Dodge Durango was towed at 9 am this morning by Keyes Towing out of Media PA. Thankfully this was the only vehicle that needed to be towed.

The containers are arriving in advance of the convector delivery next week that will be used for the upcoming HVAC work this year.  The convectors were ordered months ago when we believed the project would be well underway by now. As you all know the project is on hold for the time being but the delivery of units is going forward.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this request.  Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.


In checking the parking lot, we found a vehicle that has experienced tags. The vehicle does not have a Strath Haven sticker, so we have no idea who owns the vehicle, which is a Tan Dodge Durango with Delaware plates.

Since the vehicle has expired tags, it will be ticketed and then towed on Friday if no one claims it before then.

Please contact the Management Office is the vehicle belongs to you or someone you know so we can address this matter. Thank you.


It has been a very unusual few months weather-wise but fortunately it now appears that the warm weather may finally be here given the extended forecast.

With that in mind, the staff is preparing the air conditioning system for activation. There is still much to do; the rainy weather has hindered that process, as have the colder temperatures. 

In order to activate the air conditioning, the heating system must be off for at least 3 days.  Therefore, on Thursday, May 14 at 10 am, the heating system will be turned off in preparation of the air conditioning system being turned on Monday, May 18. 

Please understand that it is a balancing act when determining the needs of the whole community. We know that the temperatures over the next few days will still be cold at night and many will still require heat, while the temperatures this weekend will be on the warmer side and there are those that will want AC.  It was felt this was the most equitable solution. 

And remember that the Board of Managers approved the use of personal (in your unit) portable self-evaporating AC system for the shoulder season (when the heat is off, and the AC not yet turned on in the building).


Kone was here first thing this morning and was able to get the elevator back up and running. The elevator had a glitch as a result of the power outage.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked to resolve this issue.


Due to the recent power outage, the #2 Harvard elevator experienced an issue and is currently out of service.

The elevator company was notified and will be out on Monday to investigate the issue.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please note that both elevators in Princeton and the other elevator in Harvard are operational.

Additionally, the issue with the boilers that occurred as a result of the power outage has been corrected.


Last evening, Governor Wolf announced the extension of the Stay at Home order to June 4 for areas in the red phase including Delaware County.  The order follows the same guidelines as the original order that was announced on April 1.  While some parts of the state are now moving into the yellow zone, it does not appear that this will include Delaware County since the County’s new cases increased yesterday by over 100 in one day. 

The Association will continue to operate in accordance with the original Stay at Home order which has our staff continuing to work in 2 week shifts until the order is lifted.  In addition to the ongoing staffing schedule, residents are reminded that masks are required when entering and leaving the building and we should all continue to practice social distancing. 

Unfortunately, the pool will not open for the Memorial Day weekend, though we are continuing to issue pool passes per the new procedures. Pool applications are available either online or in the Princeton and Harvard lobby.  Completed applications should not be delivered to the Management Office, as the office door remains locked. Place your completed pool application in the suggestion boxes located in the Princeton or Harvard mailroom and a pool tag will be delivered to your unit.  Be aware that the rules for using the pool may change but will be announced in advance.

Stay safe, practice social distancing, wash your hands and we can get through this together. 


Unfortunately there is an issue with how the dispensers were installed causing some to come off the wall. The staff will work on re-installing them next week.

In the meantime, you will notice that some are missing. We have them in the office, they were not taken by anyone.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Unfortunately I must again report that this elevator is out of service. A service call has been placed and we hope to have someone here today to investigate this ongoing issue.

In the meantime, the other Harvard elevator is working, as are the 2 elevators in the Princeton building.
