Frequently Asked Questions
Is insurance paying for this?
The Snouffer entrance damage was the result of a hit-and-run. Because the driver has not been identified, trustees filed a claim with the BCA’s insurance. Total damage (stonework and plantings) was estimated at $24,400. We received our maximum payout of $10,000.
Why didn’t insurance cover more?
Historically there hasn’t been room in the budget for more coverage. More households are paying BCA dues now and we will be increasing our property coverage when the rebuild happens.
How much do we have saved for the rebuild?
The entrance fund currently has a balance of $12,100. This includes our insurance claim payout and additional monies saved from dues, minus costs from debris cleanup.
How much will the rebuild cost?
Rebuild estimates for the stonework range from $12,258 to $20,960. A full rebuild is at the top of this range, while modified or partial rebuilds fall in the middle or lower end of the range. Plantings and ironwork will cost extra.
When will the rebuild happen?
Timing depends upon the contractor’s schedule, how long it takes us to make a decision, and weather conditions. If a choice is made quickly and weather cooperates, work could begin as soon as late fall.
What if we choose an option that costs more than the available entrance funds?
The BCA will be making a call for entrance fund donations once survey results are collected. If existing funds and additional donations are not sufficient to cover the option chosen, trustees will consider skipping some (but not all) upcoming events and/or dividing work into multiple phases. If a gap in funding still remains, trustees may revisit the rebuild option selected.
Who makes the final decision?
BCA trustees will utilize resident input from this survey to select the most popular rebuild option. If results do not indicate a clear top choice, trustees may call for a formal vote from dues-paying residents.
