POND PLACE SNOWPLOW PROCEDURE: Pond Place residents are requested to NOT park their vehicles on the cul-de-sacs or roads during the snow or ice storms as that greatly interferes with snow plowing efforts.

FALL CLEAN-UP Pond Place residents are invited to place their brush and leaves out on empty areas next to our roads commencing October 1, 2021 for pick-up by our landscapers - JH Property Services. Brush and leaf piles should NOT be commingled but kept separate. Fall clean up will end on Friday November 19, 2021. Residents should NOT place leaves or brush out before October 1, 2021 or after November 19, 2021. Our contract with JH does not include pickup of brush or leaves except during those specified dates this year.  Should a resident/homeowner fail to abide by the rules back-billing for whatever JH charges to remove the stuff will happen and the Tax District/Assocation may levy a fine as well. DON'T BE A VIOLATOR.  This service is to help residents keep their properties tidy, not to assist in disposal of the remains of landscaping and major pruning projects that result in logs, stumps and large branches. These are not included in this arrangement. JH will remove these items for a reasonable charge.

Welcome to Pond Place

Pond Place is a unique Planned Unit Development (PUD) community established under Connecticut State Law. The Community consists of 210 individually owned, free-standing homes. These homes are located in a 70-acre park-like setting that includes a lovely pond, large open areas, walking trails and a tennis court.

Lighted pedestrian access to adjacent shopping and commuter transit is provided via the walking trails.

In Pond Place, the Residents are responsible for maintaining and repairing their homes and their Exclusive Use Area. Residents elect fellow residents to serve on the Pond Place Association and Pond Place Tax District Boards. These Boards function as the administrators of Pond Place for the purposes of maintaining and repairing Common Areas and enforcing compliance with community regulations. The boards set policy and oversee the operations of the Property Manager, as well as preparing the community budget for presentation to the residents at the annual meeting. Board meetings are held monthly, and are open to any owner or resident.

You will find all the appropriate and necessary guidelines here on this website. They include the Presentation PackageBuilding Guide, Rules and Regulations and the forms needed to apply for modifications.

Please contact our property manager with any questions or if you are looking for more information.
