September, 2008 — As a representative of the Town Green Village Owners' Association, Carol Melendez of EBMC contacted the Windsor Refuse and Recycling to discuss ways of reducing the Owners' Association's costs.
While there are companies that will work with Owners' Associations to reduce costs, the local refuse company does meet with their clients free of charge. EBMC invited a representative of the refuse company to meet and discuss ways of reducing collection costs and ways increase recycling.
A result of the meeting which included a review of the collection schedule and fees assessed, the Owners' Association received a refund from the Windsor Refuse and Recycling in the amount of $15,717. The Board of Directors was most appreciative of EBMC's efforts and the very positive results of the investigation.
Town Green Village Owners Association located in Windsor is built on 14 acres and is comprised of three-story, mixed-use buildings, with commercial condominiums on the first floor and two-story residential condominiums above. Many of the building facades are designed re-creations of historic Windsor and Sonoma County buildings.
The construction of Town Green Village incorporated Smart Growth and New Urbanism design techniques. This created a mixed-use concept, which conserves land that would normally be converted into urban sprawl, leaving the beautiful landscape of Sonoma County free of unnecessary development.
Town Green Village Owners Association includes 103 commercial condominiums, ranging in size from 600 to 3,000 square feet for retail and professional office space.
The 172 residential condominiums include energy savings features as Hydro heat system, which relies on hot water to warm living space, super water saving low-flow showerheads and water closets, and most recently the newest phase of residential condominiums are pre wired and ready for installation of a photoelectric system for each unit.
The Town Green Village Owners Association also supports an environment that includes many community activities and events. The Town Green boasts a bandstand, water features and fountain, children's play area, gymnasium and a regional library. Enjoy free outdoor concerts, moonlight movies, art shows, parades, annual holiday events, Shakespeare on The Green outdoor theatre, weekly farmers market and many other activities.
