If you are a member of a Homeowner's Association and you are paying to have some of the roads fixed throughout the subdivision, there are some things you want to do to prepare the neighborhood for the changes. You want to make sure the roads get fixed properly, that all the people in the subdivision and the road workers are safe, and you want to get the problems repaired quickly. Here are a few of the things that you should consider getting or doing before the project begins.
Notify and Inform
You want to notify everyone in the area that these changes will be taking place, and during the pavement repair they may have to park in the streets if the roads are blocked off around their homes, and that there may be people parking around their home when their area of the road is being repaired.
Use any electronic forms of communication you have to talk with the homeowners, like social media, electronic messages, and the phone. You also may want to put flyers in the doors with a schedule of the times and days when certain roads will be repaired.
Crash Truck Rentals
You can rent a crash truck to follow the road repair workers around. This is well worth the investment because the crash truck is designed to absorb the impact of a vehicle in case people are driving and not looking. You don't want to deal with a lawsuit if someone in the neighborhood crashes into a worker or work vehicle and does damage or injuries. The crash truck will follow behind the crew with flashing warning lights. Contact a company like Stripes & Stops Company, Inc. to learn more.
Get a contract to preserve the new pavement in place right away to make sure that the road is going to stay in good condition, and let the homeowners know how often the roads will be maintained. This could be everything from street sweeping to sealing if you are using asphalt.
When you are in the HOA and you are responsible for maintaining the value and the quality of the neighborhood, the streets are very important. If you have a lot of problems with the streets where you live and you know it's time to get them fixed, make sure that you let everyone know when it's going to happen, how to keep everyone safe, and how you can prevent the roads from becoming damaged and poor in the future.
