Be Fire-Smart Sept. 12, 2018

The “Walk-a-Bout” in July was well attended. Kirsten and her 2 helpers did a good job. Unfortunately I have not received a report from her regarding her recommendations. I forgot the Fire Smart books I was planning to distribute. Contact me if you would like me to drop one off at your home. It is also available on line on the BC Government website here.

Special Request: Jan. 25, 2018

I am a member of Cango Grannies. In association with the Stephen Lewis Foundation, we raise funds to help support African Grandmothers who are raising the children of their children who have died of AIDS. One of our fundraisers is the selling of gently used jewelry. If you have nice jewelry or scarves you no longer wear and would like to help, call me, and I'll come and pick up your donation.

Light Up Our Streets: Oct. 11, 2017

Security is a concern for everyone. See this letter from Unit #107.

It may help if we could ALL be sure to have our outdoor lights on overnight. May I suggest: First: Replace all three outdoor lights with LED Bulbs, Second: Install an automatic switch (Vizia 24-hour programmable timer) that adjusts for daylight saving time--set it and forget it (See at Home Depot).


Garbage Dumpster Etiquette: Aug. 25, 2017

Ravenwood Terrace Garbage Dumpster Etiquette

A reminder to residents that wine (glass) and juice bottles, beer and pop cans go to the bottle recycling--the same place plastic bags and electronics go. It has been noted that some residents are not recycling correctly. Refer to this excerpt from the 2017 Residential Recycling Collection Guide. Visit the City of Kamloops website for more information.

Site Update: Feb 6, 2016

Ravenwood News has a new look and feel. The News section is now in an accordian panel to better organize the content. Previous features are all here still and a new "Contact Us" page with an "Image Uploader" feature has been added.

The pop-up "Modal" will continue to show when you arrive on the page, but only when there is a really urgent message.

Our Mandate...

The mandate of the Ravenwood Community Newsletter is to provide a forum for sharing between residents within our complex. This may include classifieds such as: For Sale, Wanted to Buy, Share/Trade items or services and to provide a place for announcements that may be of interest to other Ravenwood residents.

If you are wanting information or have questions or suggestions about strata issues, please go to the CML link below in, “The Broader Community," and contact Murray through that link. Our newsletter does not have the mandate to answer questions and/or report on strata matters.

Thank you for your interest, and we hope that you find our online newsletter useful.

A Welcome Message...

Ravenwood Terrace Community On-Line Newsletter

Welcome all to the On-Line Ravenwood Terrace Community Newsletter.

During the Strata Survey that was conducted a couple of years ago approximately 75% of the respondents indicated that they believed that a Community Newsletter would be of value to the residents of our complex.

Since that time there have been discussions with Owners within the Strata and recently Lily and Harvey Dalley, Unit #108 came forward offering to become involved in our Community On-Line Newsletter. Lily has volunteered to be the contact person/administrator of the Newsletter and Harvey has agreed to look after the technical side of the project (webmaster).  Strata Council has discussed this project and are in agreement that there is value in having a Newsletter and supports same.

This On-Line Newsletter should be used by Strata Owners to share information amongst owners.  Requests for action by CML Properties and subsequently your Strata Council will continue to be directed to our Property Manager Murray Campbell at murray@cmlproperties.ca.

The Newsletter will be a work in progress as it moves forward and any helpful suggestions are to be directed to Lily for consideration. Thanks to Lily and Harvey for their commitment in implementing and leading this On-Line Community Newsletter as it rolls out and moves forward.

Comment: August 2, 2015

Water on Eagle Way & Heron Drive: The water appearing on Eagle Way is being actively investigated by Council and our Property Manager along with the Property Management Company for Sierra Vista and the Sierra Vista Council.  This investigation has been ongoing for a number of weeks and involves the City of Kamloops, an Engineering firm engaged by your Strata Council, a separate Engineering firm engaged by Sierra Vista Strata Council and water testing laboratories.

 

What has been determined is that the water is probably “ground water” although the source has not been identified.  The Engineering Firm hired by Sierra Vista has advised that they will be preparing a proposal as to how to solve the issue in the next week or so.

 

The Engineering Firm that we have been consulting with have advised that our property is not in any immediate danger from this ground water runoff.  Obviously we will have to repair the damage that has been done to our roadway as a result of the water runoff, but there is no advantage to doing this until Sierra Vista have determined what it is they can do to stem the flow that is coming onto their property.  No sense or advantage in repairing our roadway if the problem above continues.  

We have met with Sierra Vista Council and their Property Manager and they have been very open and have assured us that they will share any information that they learn and we have agreed that we would do the same.  Murray Campbell, CML Properties (our Property & Strata Manager) has co-ordinated all parties working towards identifying the problem and coming up with a solution so everyone involved are sharing information and suggestions.

 

Traffic cones have been placed over the area that the majority of the water is coming up in order to encourage owners, visitors and others using the roadway not to drive directly over the area.  A reminder that the speed limit in our Strata is 15 Km per hour and if that is observed there should be no issue with traffic movement in the affected area.

 

Thanks to all for their co-operation as we move towards rectifying this situation.  Be assured that the issue is not being ignored.  Should there be questions/concerns please direct them via e/mail to our Property Manager Murray Campbell who will notify Council should that be necessary.  

Bob Leach – President Strata Corporation KAS-1203
