HVAC SYSTEMS

The air conditioning system was turned off in preparation of turning on the heating system in the coming days. This means that your convectors will not be providing either heat or AC at this time.

When the heat to the building is turned on, we will post a notice on the website and at each elevator lobby area to inform you the system was activated.

The majority of units have new convectors and you do not need to do anything to the convector to get heat. Just set your desired temperature and you’ll get heat.

If you are one of the few remaining risers that still has old convectors, you will need to switch your thermostat from summer to winter in order to get heat.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.

HARVARD TRASH ROOMS — CLOSED

Just a short while ago, we were made aware of an issue with the trash chute in the Harvard building. The matter cannot be resolved tonight, so the trash chute will be CLOSED until a repair can be made.

In the meantime, you will have to use the trash rooms on the Princeton side of the building to dispose of your trash.  We are sorry for the inconvenience. We will notify you once repairs are made to the Harvard trash chute.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.  Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.

BOARD MEETING FOLLOW UP

It was a very productive Board of Managers meeting last night. Many thanks to those that attended the virtual meeting.

For those not in attendance, please know that the Board considered the input from residents and voted to return the shopping carts to their designated areas for use by residents. Please note that the carts will not be cleaned by staff, each resident is responsible to disinfect the cart. Remember that carts are to be returned after use and not to be taken through the main lobbies.

The Board also considered the request of several resident’s to open up the pool area so residents could gather via social distancing. The Board agreed with this request and effective immediately the pool deck only (no swimming) is available for those that wish to sit and chat with their neighbors. Details are attached to this notice on the pool opening.

The Board voted to open the library in the coming weeks and Helene VanHoeven will be preparing information on the opening.

The other common areas, such as the hobby shop and meeting room remain closed for now. The Board will reconsider this matter at the October ZOOM Board meeting.

In the meantime, we hope everyone contains to follow the CDC’s guidelines and wears a mask while out in the common areas.

PHONE ENTRY SYSTEMS

ADT came out today due to an issue with the phone entry system. Upon investigation, they found a problem with the phone line to the system.

We are now waiting on Verizon to come out and repair the line. They were informed that the entry system is vital to the community and we requested emergency service in order to get the system up and running as soon as possible.
