Tips for Getting Your Community Ready For Spring
There are a lot of tasks to complete in the spring. It is easy to get overwhelmed. To simplify matters, just follow the tips below. They will help your community prepare fully for spring this year.
1) Plan spring events
Homeowners will be more likely to congregate outside as the weather warms in spring. You can take advantage of this fact and plan events to help your community unite this spring. Common spring events in community associations include the following.
· Community garage sale
· Spring cleanup event
· Community garden planting day
· Community barbecue or block party
· Hiking, biking, or walking group events
2) Check infrastructure
The rough St. Louis winter may have caused damage to your infrastructure. Sidewalks and streets may have cracks. Winter storms may have damaged your landscaping. Debris may have accumulated throughout your community.
You should use spring to check for and repair any infrastructure problems. In addition, you could plan volunteer days for your community members to help clean up communal areas. Spring should be the time when you beautify your community.
3) Renew vendor contracts
Part of checking your infrastructure is renewing your vendor contracts. Vendors perform a lot of tasks in a community. These can include many things, such as the following.
· Trash pick-up
