Update on the Status of the Wildbrook Pond Rehabilitation Project
Posted on Jun 29th, 2019
You may recall from our last update that the Wildbrook Pond rehabilitation project got caught in two hurricanes and a lot of rain. A LOT of rain… seven months of nearly constant rain.
Finally in May, 2019, we had a dry month. Our contractor was able to return to our project in June. With four good days of work, he was able to finish off the remaining tasks to complete the project. While we still have a little old pvc piping to remove, I am happy to say that the pond is deeper (SCDHEC will be happy), the water is becoming more clear every day, the fish are re-stocked, the dam is stable, the park is stabilized (grass still trying to grow in the summer heat) and the path coming down to the park is much improved at the bottom. We also have “check dams” in place in creeks that feed the pond and a “forebay” in front of the pond, all to assist in reducing the potential for sediment to flow into the pond. These features should provide a lot of protection and allow for much less maintenance costs in the future. Please feel free to walk down to the pond at your leisure (the path to the pond is at the Amberly Crossing cul-de-sac).
Update on Wildbrook Pond
Posted on Jan 19th, 2019
As most in the neighborhood may know, Wildbrook Pond had become very shallow due to siltation that had developed from a variety of sources over time. The shallow nature of the pond was causing concerns regarding pollution into Steele Creek as well as causing a loss of aquatic life and unsightly growth in the pond during the warmer months. Since this pond is part of our stormwater protection system and is an amenity that is enjoyed by the neighborhood, it was important that the pond be rehabilitated.Read More >>
Debris on HOA property
Please keep our neighborhood clean and be respectful of others. We understand that it is often not easy to get rid of natural debris, however, there is no excuse for dumping any kind of debris on community property or the few vacant lots in the community. This commonly occurs by the entrance to the nature preserve on Cranborne Chase and lately there has been debris dumped between bushes on the Pleasant Road berm.
This illegal dumping is costing everyone money to have it cleaned up and will not be tolerated. Homeowners are encouraged to contact the York Co. Sheriff's Office if they see someone dumping debris.
On Street Parking
Just a reminder - the covenants require every every homeowner provide adequate off street parking for their vehicles, and overnight parking on the streets is prohibited.
Please be advised that the Board has received numerous complaints and will be stepping up enforcement of the covenants. Board members will resume making rounds now that the holidays are over. Cars in violation will receive a warning letter, and will be logged. Repeat offenders will be issued $25 fines (per occurrence) if they continue to park on the street overnight. The clubhouse parking lot is available for occasional overflow parking with permission from the BOD. Please email BOD@Bailwyck.com if you need this facility.
Parking issues (Reposted from 2016)
It seems violations of the neighborhood covenants regarding no on-street parking are on the increase.Read More >>
