Happy Saturday,

I’m writing to you from Parsippany, NJ. Kyle and I are up here for an Ideal Living Show this weekend. Sales continue to be strong in the community and our attendance at events like this help that trend to continue. In addition to the show up here, other members of the team are down at the Wilmington Boat Show in a River Bluffs booth. If you’ve never been down to the Boat Show, it’s a great event with hundreds of boats, vendors and entertainment. Please stop by and say hi if you get a chance. Read More here.

We hit a milestone this past week with the sale of the 150th Lot in the neighborhood. That’s the good news for the week. The bad (but really not bad!) news is that somehow the River Bluffs Development team got smoked in the second annual water volleyball contest. While egos may have been crushed, it was a great neighborhood event and a lot of fun for all involved. Special thanks to those who coordinated the pizza afterward and to Ritt Schiano for his valiant efforts to provide the staff with some guidance and coaching.

Utility and road building work continues in the next phase of Rosewood Landing, and we hope to have curbing installed soon. Sales in Rosewood Landing have been consistent, and we have only nineteen available Lots left in the current phase. On the other side of the power lines we continue to work on getting utilities down to the marina, and once crews wrap up in Rosewood Landing, they will be focused on speeding up the road and utility work down to the marina. We have several new ideas for housing products in the areas leading to the marina, and there will be more updates about that in the next month or so.

Amenities

The pillars at the entrance to the amenity area on the east side of the bridge are going to be modified somewhat to add a few more courses of brick, and then caps will be installed. Lighting has already been installed for them. Signage will be going up for the courts and dog park in the next few days, and we are ordering “doggie bag stations” for the dog park. There is a reservation system for the tennis and pickleball courts on the portal, and it’s an easy way to make sure you will have an open court when you go to play. Marina signage is also going up along with slip numbers for the marina itself. We are coordinating with the contractor for the installation of two additional “T Heads” this fall which will give us twenty-four additional slips. Stay tuned for more on some additions to the park areas throughout the community.

Neighborhood Safety

As predicted, the deputies in the sporty cars followed the radar speed indicator along Chair Road. Thanks to all of you who have slowed down along the way out of River Bluffs. I have gotten positive feedback from our neighbors along Chair Road and we appreciate everyone’s assistance. Please make sure you continue to lock your cars and garages, even during the day. It’s the easiest way to make sure this part of the bi-weekly update is the most boring one.

Unfortunately, there is a hurricane/tropical storm (depending on when you check) in the Atlantic that may impact our weather next week. Please check your e-mail regularly next week for updates and recommended precautions you can take.

Community Activities

Pajama Party- On Friday, September 21st we will be hosting a “Pajama Party” at Porches. This will be a fun, resident-focused event with awesome food, spirits and socializing; all while in your bedtime attire. It is also our “dry run” for Sunday brunches that we plan on hosting at Porches in the next month or so. Check the portal for more information.

Best Sandwich Ever – You should have received an e-mail recently about a contest to have a new menu item added at Porches. Entries will be judged by Chef Erin and her staff, and it’s a great opportunity to show off your culinary expertise. Details are on the portal and entries are due by September 25th.

Operation Hope Front “Trunk or Treat” – This will be a great opportunity for our residents to support our military families by having Trick or Treat around Davis Square on┬áSaturday, October 27th. Click here for more information and please contact Tina Chadwick if you are willing to help out.

There will be several other events announced in the coming weeks, including a “Grand Opening” of the Riverwalk and a neighborhood Oyster Roast. Stay tuned.

Thank you all for your continued support of the community and have a wonderful weekend.
