Letter to Telegraph Landing Homeowners from the Lobby Committee
The Telegraph Landing Board of Directors created the Lobby Committee 23 months ago to research and provide the board with recommendations on ways we can improve the function and appearance of our front lobby. Our lobby, once a point of pride, has fallen victim to the internet age with round-the-clock deliveries and now looks unkempt, crowded, and sloppy. With that, comes a worsening curb appeal and risk of lower property values. While studying the trends and before considering the annual holiday burden, the Committee realized that we receive at least 50 packages each day from more than a dozen different companies who deliver consumer products, fresh food boxes, on demand meals, dry-cleaning, and pet supplies, to name a few. Our mid-1970’s lobby was never designed to accommodate this at-home service! For months, the Committee has observed and tracked resident traffic, delivery trends, and activities, sought the much valued opinion of the lobby staff and investigated how to best address this growing problem. The committee has developed a three phrase approach:
- First and foremost is to add space to receive and store packages without compromising the security of the residents or the daily functions of the staff.
- Second is to modernize our intercom and key systems which, while state of the art in the 1970s, have outlived their usefulness and take considerable space at the lobby desk.
- Third is to improve the street presence and appearance of our lobby with new flooring, lighting, finishes, and furniture, especially for those waiting for transportation – see Survey available in the Lobby or our website, Telegraphlanding.org.
The Committee is ready to present its recommendation for a package room off the main lobby that won’t be visible from the street and will have minimal impact as seen from the courtyard. This addition is functional and secure and would blend with the appearance of our complex. It will improve Telegraph Landing’s curb appeal, facilitate the ever increasing flow of goods through our lobby, and increase our property values. Once homeowners comment on the Committee’s recommendations, the Committee will continue to work on all three phases as a comprehensive project.
Please join us on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 7:00 pm or Saturday, Jan. 21 at 10:00 am in the Club Room. We hope that all owners will attend one of these meetings and we look forward to fruitful discussions.
If you are not able to attend either meeting, please send an email to either Barry (email@example.com) or Caren (firstname.lastname@example.org), or call Carl Keane, Senior Property Manager (415-772-9136) by January 13th commenting on our proposal.
