QUINCE ORCHARD PARK 2017 ASPHALT AND CONCRETE REPAIR SCHEDULE

Asphalt and concrete repairs and sealcoating will be completed on all common area parking spaces and alleys in Quince Orchard Park beginning on Monday, April 17. No work will be completed on streets or sidewalks maintained by the City of Gaithersburg.

If work is scheduled in an area near or adjacent to your property, please remove your vehicles from your garage, driveway and alley by 7 a.m. and return them only after the barricades are removed. This ensures that the work can be done properly and your vehicles are not damaged. Vehicles that remain in the work zone may be towed to another location in the community.
This schedule will be posted on www.QuinceOrchardPark.com, and will be updated if weather or other delays are experienced. Please check the website for updates and/or sign up for the listserv to be notified by email of changes.

Diagrams showing the location of concrete and asphalt repairs to be made have been posted at www.QuinceOrchardPark.com.

QOP NEWS

Plan for a New Roof Over Your Head

Quince Orchard Park homes are between 13 and 17 years old, and the expected lifespan of most of the community’s shingle roofs is 20 years. That means that within the next few years, many QOP homes will need a new roof.

Your replacement roof must match your original shingle color and style, and this needs to be approved by the QOP Architectural Control Committee (ACC) before work begins. To request approval, please submit an architectural change request form detailing shingle color and style and include an actual shingle sample. You can mail the form and sample to the Architectural Control Committee, c/o The Management Group Associates, Inc., 20440 Century Boulevard, Suite 100, Germantown, MD 20874.

Before You Paint, Consult Approved Color Palette

Spring is a great time to spruce up your home with a new coat of paint. Just be sure that your color matches the approved paint color scheme for your home. If you use a color that is not approved, you will be asked to repaint.

Choose the color that matches the approved paint color scheme for your home by referencing the Approved Paint Color Palette on the QOP website, www.quinceorchardpark.com, under the “Architectural Info” tab. And as always, if you are contemplating a change, please submit an architectural change request form to the ACC.

Community Clean-Up Day Planned

Board Secretary Daniel Lowery is coordinating QOP’s annual Community Clean-Up Day for Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m. to noon. All materials needed for the clean-up will be provided. Students can earn student service learning credits.

Get in the Swim of It

Join the DF Stingrays swim team for a summer of fun!  A pre-team program is available. New and returning swimmers are welcome. Email dfstingrays@gmail.com to receive information about the upcoming season kickoff and how to register.

Clubhouse Update

ARK Systems is working to repair the clubhouse’s sprinkler system. This needs to be done in order to obtain an occupancy license. The management company hopes that Montgomery County might grant a temporary occupancy license while the work is being done.

Residents’ key fobs will be reactivated for clubhouse entry; new key fobs will not be issued. Please note that according to new QOP policy, residents with a $250 or higher account balance won’t be able use the clubhouse and fitness room. This follows the pool policy of not granting admittance to residents whose accounts are in arrears.
