February 25, 2019 Results to October 2018 Members Survey Hello HHA members

The survey conducted last October 2018 was recently posted on our website for your review.
We thank all those who participated and appreciate your thoughtful responses. Receiving your input on on the management of the Hebrides, your participation in the activities and views on the aesthetics of the property are essential in decision making for determining the annual budget requirements and long term planning. It is important that we hear what matters to you in this process.

They are currently reviewing the Fund’s guidelines, identifying projects and related financial needs over the next 5 years and beyond. The survey results are considered a cornerstone of information for this process.

April 27, 2018 Hebrides Gate and Road Opening Good News!

Enjoy Spring in the Hebrides!
April 20, 2018 Update on Road Conditions Hello Members
Hebrides Lane road conditions have improved somewhat over the last 2 weeks but there are still soft, wet areas. Therefore, the Board has determined that the gate remain closed to vehicular traffic for another week. The weather forecast looks promising with sunny skies and warming temperatures so hopefully, more drying will occur.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update the website as conditions improve.
Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.

April 8, 2018 Hebrides Closed to Vehicle Traffic Hello Members
The decision to close the gate to vehicles for approximately 2 weeks has become necessary due to current road conditions and inclement Spring weather. To add to the situation, it has been reported that vehicles have been driving on the grass to avoid the ruts and soft, wet areas on the road. Closing the road to vehicles should prevent further damage and hopefully, allow some time for drying and firming up to occur.
In the meantime, the gate remains locked and the new code numbers are not being shared. In keeping with past practice, the New London Fire Service has been alerted to the code change and continues to have access if the need arises.
We will continue to monitor the road conditions and provide updates on the website as they become available.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the website email.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
David Ferretti, President
on behalf of the Board
