Villas Residents Attend Senior Center Fundraiser
Posted on Sep 25th, 2022
This September, several residents of the Villas attended a fundraiser for the Wake Forest Senior Center. Several weeks back, the Center had been hit by lightning and it has been closed since.
 
This fundraiser was held at the downtown Forks Cafeteria, where the festivities included a Dulcimer concert.
 
Besides the Villas residents, Mayor Vivian Jones also attended.
 
 
 
 
Do you need your DRYER VENT cleaned?
Posted on Sep 22nd, 2022
THIS NEWS ARTICLE WILL BE REMOVED OCTOBER 31ST.
 
This news article is to inform you about the upcoming dryer vent cleaning program in the Villas.  We had a company come in almost three years ago and they did a very good job for many residents at a reasonable cost.  We will be working with the same contractor, John Parsons of Vent and Duct Solutions
 
Clogged dryer vents can be a cause of a home fire, therefore it can be dangerous to neglect getting your dryer vent cleaned. Because our homes are attached, should you have a fire it would probably affect your neighbors in the same building.  Keeping your vent cleaned also makes your dryer more efficient.  If you notice that it takes longer to dry a load of clothing, that is a pretty good sign that your dryer vent needs cleaning. 
 
Starting today we will begin taking names of those who want this done.  A price of $75.00 (including tax) was negotiated, and checks should be made out to Vent and Duct Solutions and given to the contractor.  Any incidental expenses, i.e. replacing hoses, vents, etc. will be extra. ...

            It was just too much rain for our MaragrettaVilla night…the food truck was just great as always and the band will be back another day to entertain us…so not a total loss…and we do need the rain.
 
            Two proposals for Bloomsbury were approved at the last Board meeting, one for Landscaping and one for drainage.  Marlene will notify the residents that will be receiving some new plantings, and the Pasture walk entrance will be completed.  The Facilities team will notify residents at 10 driveways that need to have some dirt removed and sod transferred to prevent puddles forming.  Also, eight buildings will be the first to have gutters cleaned and repaired if needed, and those residents will be notified as to the start date. Thanks to our Landscapers that are keeping us looking good and staying safe.
 
            Many have asked why there is no signage at the Ligon Mill entrance.  This is somewhat complicated now that we are on public streets.  The Villas only owns part of the roadway up to Ligon Mill…remember when it was called The Road to Nowhere?  Plus, we must allow for the Right of Way to the Power Company.  The Town considers the small island an obstacle as Emergency Services such as the fire trucks and ambulances cannot easily make a U turn.  It was investigated, and with the cost of the permits, what would or would not be allowed, and if a sign were to be approved was in the $8,000.00 range.  The Board did discuss options and i...
