GREETINGS FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS (BOD):
The remodeling of the lobby is complete and we hope you are enjoying the new décor.
After months of tough negotiations with AIMCO we have finally succeeded in obtaining the administration and the collection of the monthly parking fees for the Flamingo South Tower tenants, effective April 1st . In the past the Association collected parking fees from the owners only and for reasons unknown all others were paying directly to AIMCO. Still on our agenda with them is the final status of the BODs request to designate parking spaces for all South Tower Residents.
The BOD is also exploring the possibility of an exclusive valet service to the residents of the South Tower.
We have concluded the bidding process from companies regarding the installation of a new security system, passes and additional cameras in the floor lobbies, etc. This work will begin shortly and we will keep you informed as to its progress.
We are also planning to install a card reader pass system on the door connecting the South Tower with the Center Tower by way of the skywalk. This would eliminate unwanted foot traffic from that side. These measures will increase security from all entrances into the South Tower..
We have received the new unit number signs since many were broken due to vandalism. The maintenance dept has begun installing them.
AIMCO contacted us regarding the BayWalk Project i.e. creating 15 feet wide easement along the entire bay frontage for public access. The project also calls for the repair of the Seawall as well as the upgrading of the entire North and South pools and pool deck areas. They showed us the renderings of their proposed project. We sent it to our legal counsel for advice.
As we have mentioned before we are designating one of the elevators for pets and service related use for safety and sanitary reasons. The elevator company will be working on the change of switches shortly.
We have plans to change the roll up door to another heavy duty type to be operated by the access card system 24/7. This way residents with bicycles can have easier access to a larger spaced elevator and meantime lobby elevators will be freed up .We are currently contacting door companies.
