UPDATE: Exterior Painting of the Creekside Building

Update:  Tomorrow Wednesday July 10th, the painting of the exterior of the Creekside Building will begin.  The painting will begin on the back of the building to minimize the impact on the pool area.  I have asked Kevin Baldwin to advise the PP pool monitors to direct PO’s to the Pink Palace bathrooms and avoid foot traffic from the rear of the Creekside Bldg.  The painting at the rear of the bldg. should be completed by the end of day Friday.

The Facilities Committee will be monitoring the painting progress and will advise you all as to the progress and any changes to the anticipated Friday deadline.

Should you have any questions, please contact Tom Pickel, Co-Chair of the Facilities Committee., 910-616-

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Sea Trail Property Owners:

Please be advised that on Monday, July 8th exterior painting of the Creekside Building will begin. THE BUILDING WILL BE OPEN DURING THIS TIME.  Please be extra cautious and mindful the painters will be working around the building exterior. Hopefully the building will be completed by the end of the week. Should you have any questions or comments, please contact me at any time.  Please avoid asking the painters any questions.

Thank you,

Tom Pickel
