How To Prepare Your Community for Spring

As the chill of winter fades away and nature begins to awaken from its slumber, your HOA community will begin to gear up for the arrival of spring. Beyond just a change in weather, spring brings with it a sense of renewal, growth, and possibility. It is a time when people emerge from their homes, eager to reconnect with nature and each other.

Your Board can create a cohesive and exciting community this spring. You just need to follow the tips presented in this article

Top Tips for Preparing Your Community for Spring

Below are our top tips for preparing your community to embrace the spirit of spring this year.

1.) Prepare and Send a Newsletter.

Communication is the key to every well-run HOA and condo community association. A great way to communicate the important information your residents need to know this spring is a newsletter. Include information about community clean-up days, outdoor activities, and any changes to local regulations or services.

In today’s digital age, you do not need to only make physical copies of your newsletter. These are easily lost. Instead, consider creating a digital newsletter that you can send to each resident and post to your community’s social media pages and website.

2.) Plan spring-themed community events.

Spring is a great time to bring the community together to celebrate fun and festive events. The season brings warm weather that will tempt your residents to leave their homes. Consider hosting a community picnic, a spring festival, or an outdoor movie night. Just make sure that you have a backup plan for any outdoor events, as spring is also a rainy season in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

3.) Make sure you have a plan for lawn maintenance

With the arrival of warmer weather, your community’s landscaping will require attention to keep it looking its best. Make sure your Board has a plan in place for lawn maintenance, including mowing, weeding, and fertilizing. Consider hiring a professional landscaping company or organizing a volunteer group to tackle the task together.

4.) Don't forget the pool

If your community has a pool, it will need to be serviced at the beginning of spring. This task is best completed by professionals. Before spring begins, you should schedule routine maintenance such as cleaning, chemical treatment, and the inspection of pool equipment. If you need help finding a good pool vendor, the expert team at Community Property Management can help.

You may also want to consider offering swimming lessons or water aerobics classes to encourage residents to use this amenity frequently.
