CamerasIn the middle of 2017, the Board of Directors of Lakewood Park Two HOA voted to install security cameras at all 3 entrances of the neighborhood and the community park. These cameras are monitoring these entrances 24 hours a day. They are equipped with license plate readers and video surveillance of vehicles with paper tags as well.
As reported at the latest BOD election on August 22, 2018, the information recorded by these cameras will be accessed by the firm who holds the video after a request is made through a law enforcement agency. The BOD does not actively maintain access to these records.
This project was approached in three phases.
Phase One included a system at the community park and the Avenplace Road entrance. Avenplace was the simplest entrance to monitor and there had been minimal, but continual vandalism in the park. Since the installation of the camera, no vandalism has been reported.
The cost of Phase One was: 8,400 for the park, $12,225 for Avenplace.
Phase Two was for the system on Guernsey Ave and the cost was $14,250.
Phase Three, the final phase, includes the system on Newpark Ave. Due to complications with available electrical placement, it was determined that a solar unit was the best way to approach this phase. The total cost for Phase Three was $19,225.
The total cost for the entire system to date is $54,100.
There will be some minor additional cost to add signage related to the cameras.
There will be additional yearly costs for cloud based system software estimated to be around $1,500 - $2,000 per year.
These systems were put in place using existing funds with no dues increase to members.
Your elected Board of Directors felt that this was a very good use of neighborhood funds in an effort to keep Lakewood Park Two as safe in the future as it has been in the past.
As is always the case, should you have questions, please feel free to email the BOD at email@example.com.
Hopefully, there won’t be a need, but should you find a need to access the information recorded by these camera systems, please have the law enforcement agency responding to your problem contact the BOD. We will then put them in contact with the company that holds the recordings.
Sincerely, Lakewood Park Two HOA BOD
