Good Morning Manchac Place Homeowners !!!
One of my goals this year besides making the MPHOA financially solvent was “enhanced community engagement”.  My feeling is that the MPHOA should engage with individuals as fellow homeowners first. When issues cannot be resolved, then the authority of the MPHOA should used to benefit the best interests of all homeowners. Having a well kept neighborhood benefits all of us and invites others to move in. Nowadays, people have so many places to choose from as to where to live. I love our location, because we are in Ascension parish, but not too deep in Ascension parish. I love that my commute does not begin somewhere down Hwy 42 or Hwy 73.  As saddened as I was about the Great Flood, I was happy that I didn’t live on the other side of the overpass on Bluff Road that was closed off and also didn’t have to worry about flooded streets.
My point is, when potential buyers and realtors drive into the subdivision, there first impression is the common area, and then the rest of the responsibility is borne on the 230+ homes that make up the subdivision. While we have been fortunate this year with great home sales (more info at the annual meeting), there is room for improvement in exterior upkeep. Upkeep costs time and money. Because, I was able to turn things around financially, I would like to invest back into the community. Hopefully, this will be a catalyst for homeowners that may have been putting off some “curb appeal” cleanups and this can also set the tone of how the MPHOA invests back into the subdivision going forward.
There are many mailboxes that are in need of repair. It’s one of the first things that you see when you drive through the subdivision. As a result, I am offering the following which was approved by the MPHOA board.
The first 40 homeowners (current on 2020 dues) to send an email to manchacplace@gmail.com will receive a reimbursement of up to $35 toward a mailbox refurbish.
In the subject line write “Mailbox Offer” and include your name and address.
This includes homeowners that have already had their mailboxes refurbished as early as October 1st.
I will post a notice on the Manchac Place Facebook Page and the Manchac Place website once the limit of 40 has been reached.
There are two vendors that have been performing work in the subdivision, you can choose one of them, choose another vendor, or do it yourself.
Once the 40 are selected, the work can be completed between now and December 31, 2020. I will just need a picture of the refurbished mailbox and a receipt for reimbursement.
The two vendors currently working in the neighborhood are:
1.       Preston Denn – Red Flag Mailbox Restoration 225-485-9073
Price: $35 or $40 restoration includes sanding, cleaning, and painting the post, mailbox, numbers and flag. Missing numbers are priced at $7 per number. From there, prices vary for hinge and latch replacement, etc.
2.      Jennifer Gilbert - Ascension Mailbox & Accents 225 363-8841
