Written by the president of the MPCA Board of Directors, Valerie Jackson
As many of you know, Marley Park’s developer, DMB, created the unique look, feel and culture that we call home. Our Marley Park Community Association, residents and board members have benefitted greatly from the services provided by the staff of DMB Community Life over the years.
Following the Board’s decision to contract with First Service Residential for community management services, DMB Community Life staff members, led by Rebecca Zieber, have been planning and preparing for the April transition. Over the last several weeks, a wealth of information has been gathered and transferred to First Service Residential and those efforts are continuing through March.
Last week, your current MPCA Board Members met with the First Service Residential transition team. We’re pleased to report that they are working diligently on the multitude of items involved in the transition process. This includes, but is not limited to, reviewing volumes of documentation, meeting with current on-site staff, building the new website, creating and auditing the resident database and preparing to communicate information to Marley Park residents including details on assessment payments and other important items.
We are encouraged that the transition process is moving right along and are confident that the comprehensive resources and experience of First Service Residential will serve to benefit our community now and moving forward.
Board members remain committed to the unique culture that is Marley Park and are charged with the responsibility to set policies and provide clear direction to staff in support of that goal.
I want to take this opportunity to encourage every resident to exercise patience and understanding during this transition period and moving forward. First Service Residential is excited to learn more about our community, getting to know our residents and creating a positive working relationship with the Board.
We encourage you to rely on official communications from staff or your MPCA Board for the most accurate information. If you have questions about the transition, please address them to DMB Community Life staff who can provide you with the most factual and timely response. You’re also welcome to email Board members at firstname.lastname@example.org, but please understand that we are volunteers and may require additional time or need to obtain specific information from staff prior to responding.
Please join us in thanking the staff of DMB Community Life for their years of service and in welcoming First Service Residential to our Marley Park community!
