Woodmoor Page

This page shows you information specific to the Woodmoor Council. There are 54 lot units in Woodmoor. The council has two directors on the Conservancy Board.

Attached below is a file which records the color of houses, trim, front doors, and garages in Woodmoor council. These files are the baseline for AAIs involving painting.

One of the most important standards that applies to Woodmoor is the landscaping rule that governs upkeep of the lawn, shrubs, etc. It is attached below.

Woodmoor Council is unique in that the units are "lot units." Woodmoor does not have any common elements. The Rules provide for certain situations that may apply to other councils, but may not be appropriate to Woodmoor. See section 30 of the Rules document or the download below.

Remember that you must submit a AAI for Additions, Alterations, or Improvements as specified by the Declaration and the Rules before any work begins or fines may be imposed. Woodmoor does not have to submit an AAI in certain cases. Again, see the download below for section 30.

Reminder Woodmoor Residents
Woodmoor Residents,

The winter has been kind but we are not past it, quite yet. Here is a friendly reminder pertaining to Town of Windsor ordinances that affect Woodmoor.

Winter Street Parking Band
Please remember, the Town of Windsor has a “No Parking” Ban from November through March. Refer to Town of Windsor website if you need further details. Don’t run the risk of being towed.

Sidewalk Clearing Your Responsibility-(12 hours after storm maximum)
Please be mindful of your walkway, sidewalk, and hydrant responsibilities. If you are gone for the winter, please contract someone to stay on top of this for you. There are many school children trying to get to their bus stops, dog walkers, delivery personnel, and neighbors using your sidewalk and walkway. Don’t make them have to walk in the street because you haven’t taken care of your property.

Town of Windsor Regulations:

Sec. 15-3. Snow and ice removal–Required; time limit.
(a) The owner of any premises adjoining and fronting upon any public sidewalk, including by definition bikeways and bikepaths, within the area of the town, shall cause to be removed therefrom all snow , sleet and ice to a minimum width of four (4) feet, or to a minimum of six (6) feet when so determined by the town manager, which shall have accumulated thereon within a period of twelve (12) hours after the same shall have accumulated or been deposited or within twelve (12) hours after sunrise if the same shall have accumulated during the night; and whenever any such public sidewalk, or any part thereof, shall be coated with ice which cannot satisfactorily be removed, said owner, tenant or occupant of the premises adjoining and fronting thereon shall as an alternative to said removal of such ice, cause such public sidewalks to be made safe and convenient for pedestrians by covering the ice with sand or other suitable substance.

(b) All snow and ice accumulating in the street higher than a point four (4) inches below the bottom of the lowest outlet on any fire hydrant, and within a radius of three (3) feet from the center of such hydrant, shall be removed by the owner of the premises adjoining said hydrant, within a period of twelve (12) hours after the same shall have accumulated or been deposited or within twelve (12) hours after sunrise if the same shall have accumulated during the night. Said owner shall also clear a path having a minimum width of three (3) feet between any fire hydrant and the edge of the traveled portion of the abutting street, highway, private road or drive.

Sidewalk Clearing: Your Responsibility
Woodmoor Residents,

Please be mindful of your sidewalk and hydrant responsibilities. Please remember there are many school children trying to get to their bus stops. Let’s not make them walk into the streets because you haven’t taken care of your walks.

Walden Woods Woodmoor Reminders
WOODMOOR RESIDENTS,

Sending a couple reminders...

Holiday Decorations
Please remove and follow the Rules
Section 4.1 states that holiday decorations may not be displayed more than 30 days before a holiday and must be removed no later than 15 days after the holiday. See Section 4.4.1.

Landscaping
As previously communicated, Walden Woods has made a commitment to a renewed beautification. This has already begun - 2020 is the year and Spring is just around the corner. All councils are sprucing up.

Unit Notices: Several Woodmoor homes received notices last year which gave a “heads up” for yard landscaping expectations (as per the rules). Please pay attention to those deadlines. This is one of the most common complaints from neighbors - some trying to actively sell their homes/all trying to maintain property values.

All: Thanks to everyone for beginning the planning to assure the Woodmoor Council shines.

Section 32 of the rules address landscaping in Woodmoor. Please refer to them if you have any questions.

Here’s hoping everyone is enjoying the mild winter we are having. Thank you for helping keep Walden Woods a desirable development in which to live.

Standards Committee



Woodmoor Mail Boxes
Woodmoor Council residents,
_________________________________
If you are following Walden Woods activities, you will know there is a strong effort to get WW back to the beauty it once was. The community is older now, yes, but a renewed effort for sprucing up curb appeal and assuring standards are followed will assure success (not to mention help maintain property values).

While it seems trivial sometimes, we all bought into a community with standards and rules. Standard Committee is working hard to support the efforts of the Conservancy Board toward adhering to those
Rules. Toward that end...

There are still some mailboxes outside of what is standard for the council - please make plans to fix, update, repair, etc. If you have recently replaced to follow the standard, your efforts and acknowledgement are greatly appreciated.

Before you replace, please ask yourself if what you are replacing follows what the standard is and remember to submit an AAI before work commences.

Subsection 30.10 – Mailboxes. Mailboxes must follow the New England motif, be neat in appearance, in proper state of repair and functional. General standard is to maintain a wooden or vinyl post. The post shall be 4X4 with finial top, lateral arm with triangular support underneath the arm. Mailbox shall be metal or vinyl using color scheme complementary to the main dwelling.

Thank you for your continued support Wishing everyone the happiest of holidays.

Look forward to a wonderful 2020,
STANDARDS COMMITTEE
