Emerson Master HOA News

You may have seen the weekly newsletters from the Emerson Master HOA, but there are a number of significant items that I felt would be good to collect in one place:

  1. Emerson has a new on-site General Manager, Jose Palacios, who has prior experience with managing a large HOA. Contact information has been updated on our web site.
    • Steffanie Nollie will remain involved with Emerson as the Portfolio Manager, but now will guide multiple properties. 
    • Lisa Fields is the assistant manager for Emerson HOA.
  2. Demolition of the old Clubhouse was supposed to start last week and is expected to take 3-4 weeks.
    1. The crews were to start at 7 AM which is the earliest permitted under Howard County noise regulations (quiet hours are 10 PM to 7 AM).
    2. The Emerson Front Office will temporarily relocate to the Maryland main office down the road at 8920 Stephens Road, Suite 101. They will still be reachable at the same office number (301-317-4044).
      1. Many issues that are the jurisdiction of Howard County can be reported via Tell HoCo or on the non-emergency line for police, fire, and EMS (410-313-2200).
      2. Power, gas , and street lighting outages should be reported to BGE.
  3. The Clubhouse rebuild will be led by Project Manager Antonio Cruz, who is also Vice President of Construction for Knott Realty. The General Contractor will be Whiting Turner. The Architect is DCS Design (Davis Carter Scott) and they have posted a web page with the design.
  4. Emerson Master HOA Board:
    1. 2023 Board Directors
      1. Neil Madan, President
      2. Kate Sanft (Knott Realty), Vice President
      3. Neeraj Singh, Treasurer
      4. Mitesh Parikh, Secretary
      5. Becca Niburg, Director
      6. Rashida George (Howard Hughes), Director
      7. Felecia Jackson-Taylor, Director 
    2. The Board decided to move the monthly Board Meetings to the 1st Tuesday of each Month - start time is still 7pm.
  5. Miscellaneous:
    1. Both this week and next will be a slide schedule for trash and recycling collection (collections will be one day later than normal) due to the holidays on Sunday of each week (Christmas and New Year's).
      1. Only 6 holidays cause a schedule adjustment: New Year's, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. But inclement weather can also cause rescheduling.
    2. Food Trucks: Most Friday vendors have shut down for the winter, but I believe T&J Waffles will continue to serve Emerson on Wednesday evenings from the Enclave after the Clubhouse parking lot is closed.
