Phase 7 Update - January 18th
Several questions have arisen about the progress and status of Phase 7, most of which should be addressed by the developer, including issues of roadway and front entrance lighting, street names and roadway cleaning. The BOD has reached out to Horsey to address these and other concerns and is attempting to schedule a meeting with Horsey and DR Horton. Now that the holidays are over there should be better communication for our community with Phase 7 development, some timelines for addressing our concerns, when the Play-Fit area will be constructed and when the pumping station and electrical services along Hammerhead will be completed and the area around those services landscaped and fenced in and essential lighting for the mailbox area.
Drainage tends to be at the top of the list of concerns and is an issue between the developer Horsey and Sussex County. Our BOD is aware of the issue but notes that since SWC doesn't own or have control over the property or development, the BOD and HOA are not currently responsible for those issues.
Beach Cove Drive into Phase 7 has been opened to small construction vehicles. It is an ACTIVE construction zone and CAUTION must be observed when in that area. If larger construction vehicles, dump trucks, concrete trucks or large equipment are seen entering Phase 7 using Beach Cove please contact our BOD or ARC. The roadways along the intersection of Beach Cove and Hammerhead are deemed unsuitable for pedestrian traffic and should be avoided.
There are 12 homes now in various build stages in the Waterfront Drive cul-de-sac. Only 3 properties are left to be constructed on Waterfront before it is complete. Blue Marlin Court should be next for development after the cleanup of the dumping grounds and concrete washout.
The Sales Model is open with a sales representative onsite. Hours Sunday - Tuesday 10am-6pm, Wednesday 12pm-6pm and Thursday - Saturday 10am-6pm. 302-803-0300 Please call first if you plan to visit the Sales Office.

Architectural Committee Inspection
Thanks to all who have sent their property information updates. Of the 471 letters sent 198 have responded. There are 56 properties without any shed, fence, hardscape or other improvements. Again, you are asked to simply supply any supporting information, including any Approval Letters. You can submit the information by filling out an Architectural Application marking it "Information Only" and emailing it to the SWCARC at the address below, or by mailing the information to our return address: SWCARC, Box 233, Harbeson, Delaware 19951. There is no charge for this information update. We are simply attempting to "fill in the blanks" of the lack of information our previous Management Company failed to provide during the transition to Legum & Norman. The Architectural Application Form can be located on the website under the Members Section or on TownSQ. We will be sending a reminder request in the next couple of weeks hoping to have the majority of information updated by the end of January.
The Lot # - Address - Plot Map category has been added under the Member's Section where you can check to see if our database has a Plot Map for your property. It's a simple quick test and will provide the last Plot Map submitted for your property. This will help those who may have purchased property in SWC and the property documents transfered to you did not include a property map. If you see an N/A or not available or that you have a better property map than what is shown, you can email it to us as well.
