Spectrum Update: April 29, 2020

Spectrum Update: We began this journey because many residents approached Kenneth Colen, Chairman, after the last General Meeting and asked about the Association offering a bulk cable and internet service through Spectrum. The Association went to work on hammering out a concept with Spectrum, had a well-attended workshop with residents to listen to concerns, and then drafted a letter and survey to determine the depth of interest among residents. That survey finally went out in the mail on March 13, 2020, right when things really started blowing up with COVID-19. As you know, the world has significantly changed since then. The COVID-19 crisis is now at the center of everyone’s lives and the full impacts of this crisis cannot be measured at this time. In addition to concerns over health and safety, we recognize that many residents are struggling from the negative economic impacts (stock market collapse) of this crisis, and especially those who were relying on employment which has been disrupted, including layoffs.

I do not doubt that the uproar around this pandemic has influenced the pace of survey returns as we are still receiving survey results. As of April 28, the survey results are as follows: Option 1 is 2,143; Option 2 is 33; Option 3 is 976. While the survey results so far support moving forward with the Spectrum proposal, we understand that those responding to the survey may have done so before the full impacts of the COVID-19 crisis became apparent.

We have been closely evaluating the many thoughtful comments from residents voicing their concerns as well. As you would expect, there are some residents who strongly support it, and some who oppose it have been very unkind with their thoughts and letters. Aside from the financial implications, generally, concerns over the contract term have been a recurring theme – presented as, “we are aging and don’t know what the future holds for us financially.” With this theme, others have asked that an option be provided to opt-out.

Due to the uncertainty of the pending COVID-19 crisis, and in light of concerns voiced by many residents, we are taking a pause and delaying the Spectrum proposal until the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis can be more fully measured on our community, and the concerns voiced by residents can be further evaluated and addressed. At this time, it’s important for our community to work together to get through the ongoing COVID-19 challenges.
