I am working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT – INSTALLATION OF HISTORICAL MARKER

In February, the Board of Managers approved the request from local Eagle Scout, Nate Linderman, to install a historical marker on our property. Nate’s project is to construct historical markers in Swarthmore in order to commemorate places of historical significance within the borough. 

One is being installed on our property since the community sits on the site of the former Strath Haven Inn.  This inn was a popular resort and social hub for many people during its heyday. 

Nate’s Troop #112, will be installing the marker along Harvard Avenue, closer to Yale Avenue on Saturday, September 14 sometime between the hours of 11 am and 1 pm.  Unfortunately, a more specific time cannot be given due to the scope of work involved with the installation of the markers throughout Swarthmore.  Hopefully you will get to see the installation, if not, please look for it in your travels.  We will be posting pictures of it once the installation is complete. 

We wish to thank Nate and Troop #112 for recognizing our lovely community! 

Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.

PRINCETON LOBBY PHONE ENTRY SYSTEM

Management is aware of an issue with this specific (Princeton main lobby) phone entry system.  This unit only displays last names from A to K.  The three (3) remaining phone entry systems are fully functional. 

We’ve placed a service call but due to the holiday weekend, we will not be able to have a service technician out until Tuesday, September 3.  We do apologize for this inconvenience.

Should you need to reach someone who’s last name begins with the letters L thru Z, please use the closest system, which is located in the Princeton service entrance around the corner, or any of the other two (2) phone entry systems in the Harvard building. We appreciate your understanding with this issue.  Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000

PECO POWER OUTAGE

At approximately 6:15 am this morning, the power went out to the entire complex and some surrounding homes.

Our staff has notified PECO and they are working to correct the problem. Unfortunately we do not have an estimated time of restoration at this time.

Please note that one elevator on each side of the building is in operation, as are some lights on each floor.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

HARVARD ELEVATOR REPAIRED

The technician was out this morning and found the problem with the elevator and made the necessary repairs. The unfortunate part of this, is the cost to the Association of about $1,000 for the unnecessary service call. The cause of the issue is directly related to someone blocking or holding the elevator door open for an extended period of time. This caused the elevator to lock out, hence the need for a service call. This is the 2nd time in less than a month that this has happened, resulting in a $2,000, unexpected and most importantly, unnecessary service call.

Please help reduce unnecessary expenditures and keep the costs of running the Association (your home), within budget.

Between the vandalism of parking signs on Harvard and just these two services calls, it has netted close to $3,000 in unbudgeted expenses. Management and the Board work hard to keep expenses down and budget increases to a minimum but if these types of events continue, it could result in an increase to the operating budget, which affects each and every owner and resident.

We appreciate your consideration of these matters and please remember to not block any elevator door for longer than a few seconds. Thank you.

HARVARD SERVICE ELEVATOR

Currently the service elevator is stuck on the 6th floor. A service call was placed and the technician should be here today to look at the issue. We will keep you posted on the outcome.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000
