Volunteer committees are a central part of Olde Ivy life. The following Olde Ivy committees provide an important way for residents to be involved with the community, helping make Olde Ivy an attractive place to live. These committees welcome your active participation.
Michael Burel, Chair • Tricia Buce
This committee ensures that the Neighborhood clubhouse is used appropriately by residents, and that it is kept in mint condition. To this end, the committee is closely involved with the clubhouse reservations process.
Charlie Ryan, Chair • Leslie Maddock • Mike Zeck
This Committee is responsible for all official communications within Olde Ivy. Its mission is to promote and enhance the timely dissemination of relevant information regarding Olde Ivy to its homeowners and residents.
The "Olde Ivy Vine" is our newsletter. That newsletter, this neighborhood website, and occasional email broadcasts are the primary channels used by the committee. The Newsletter Archive located in our DOCUMENTS section contains current and previous issues of the newsletter. Please read the "Guidelines for Mass Emails to the Olde Ivy Community" before submitting requests for email distribution.
Fitness Center Committee
Eddie Ray and Jeff Costley, co-Chairs
This committee ensures that the fitness center is properly equipped and maintained. The committee has replaced equipment such as a treadmill, and overseen repairs to a variety of machines
Walt Underwood, Chair • John Bennison • Tom Constantine • Dan Gonsalves • Al Morrison
The Infrastructure Committee oversees maintenance of the Neighborhood property, including common buildings, roads, sidewalks, gates, fences, street lamps, and so on. (All the residential buildings and the neighborhood Landscape are outside the scope of the Infrastructure Committee.) Maintenance work includes both scheduled projects, such as repainting the Clubhouse, and unscheduled projects, such as repairing storm damage.
The Infrastructure Committee is staffed by resident volunteers who don’t perform the repairs themselves; rather they obtain bids, draft statements of work, monitor progress, verify completion, and coordinate the work of the professionals who perform the actual maintenance.
There are two standing sub-committees, for the Fitness Center and for the Pool. Other sub-committees may be formed from time to time.
The Infrastructure Committee maintains the Reserve Plan, which includes a 20 year forecast with scheduling and budgeting of recurring capital maintenance projects. The Neighborhood Board of Directors retains financial authority, and separately reviews and approves funding for each significant project.
As Olde Ivy ages, maintenance becomes an increasingly important and demanding activity. Good decisions about maintenance have a direct bearing on the finances of the community and on the quality of life for residents. The Infrastructure Committee is an active committee, and we welcome new members—especially people who have experience with contracting and construction trades.
Eric Brannen, Chair • Nancy Howell • Leslie Maddock • Gay Watson • Pat Stuart • Karen Underwood
This committee manages and maintains the entire landscape of Olde Ivy. Responsibilities include routine and emergency planting and maintenance of plants and trees, planning for seasonal color beds, managing maintenance and operation of the irrigation system, controlling erosion, and managing the pet waste station service.
The committee selects, hires and supervises a landscape contractor.
Dan Gonsalves, Chair
The Pool Committee manages operation and maintenance of the swimming pool and pool area.
Debbie Naylor, Chair • Gay Gunter • Kandy McCarthy • Leslie Maddock • Debbie Naylor • Gay Watson • Pamela Weathers • Pat Welsh • Louise Wiggins
The Social Committee enjoys planning seasonal events for the community, such as a Holiday party in December and a Pool party in June. More get-together events are planned–they are a great way to meet your neighbors! Invitations for these parties are emailed to all Olde Ivy residents–owners and renters alike.
