Board of Directors New Members
Posted on Apr 14th, 2023
If you did not attend the meeting on March 23rd, you may not know the members of the Board of Directors are all new.
Stephen Fuhrmann joined the Board a year ago, but Rob Jensen, Alexus Coffeen, and Shelly Nelson all joined in the last few months.
A fifth member, Lisa Kempa, has now been appointed, bringing the total up to 5.
The members of the Board are homeowners who also live in the Lakes & Fairways of Prairie Crossing.
These volunteers donate their time to try to maintain and improve the neighborhood by choosing the contractors to provide services, driving enforcement of the Covenants, arranging community meetings and events, and reviewing requests from homeowners wanting to make changes to their properties.    
Some homeowners have already reported seeing changes, and there are more to come.
If you want to get in contact with your Board of Directors, please use the link through FrontSteps.  Social Media is a great format for neighbors to communicate and share concerns, but if there is something you want the Board to be aware of, you need to go through the proper channels.  If you prefer not to use FrontSteps, contact Ardsley Management and the Community Association Manager will relay your concerns to the Board.

Ardsley Management has rolled out use of FrontSteps for homeowners to access information about your Association and your own account.  Through FrontSteps you can read newsletters and receive notifications and reminders of community events.  The governing documents and form to request approval from the Architectural Review Committee to make changes to your property can be found there.  You can even submit your request through FrontSteps, and receive immediate notification when it is approved.  Owners can also check the amount of the latest assessment and if the management company has received your payment.  Invitations to join the Lakes & Fairways at Prairie Crossing HOA portal have been sent out by email.  All you need to do is click on the button that says "Click Here to Join".  Eventually, the Association website is expected to go away, and FrontSteps will be the source for electronic communication and information.  If you have not received an invitation to join FrontSteps, or need a new one, contact Ardsley Management to update your contact information.  
Upcoming Project AT&T Fiber Optic
Posted on Jun 7th, 2022
Dear Homeowners:
The HOA has been recently made aware of a project affecting your utility easement in the front yard.  Always Under Construction is the project head for AT&T Fire Optic Cable Project, which they will start boring tentatively scheduled for Monday 6/13. Their schedule completion date is 7/22. Approximately 45% of this project is in Prairie Crossing. Boring crews will be starting in Prairie Crossing. Below lists the details from Jason Dougherty, Project Manager of Always Underground Inc.
Locate crews will be out placing flags and marking with paint prior to boring within the next week or 2.
During the boring and fiber placement our crews will be using directional boring equipment in the ROW and utility easements to place conduit, handholes, and 'flower pots'. This of course involves digging for these items, as well as 'pothole' digs to spot utility locates. 
Our crews our directed to use mats under equipment tracks so as to not disturb lawns any more than necessary.
All utility locate digs are to be filled back in and spoil piles removed. Any open digs for handholes or flower pots are to be fenced of with T-posts and snow fence, and covered.
Within a few weeks at the latest, depending on weather and ground conditions, our subcontracted landscape/restoration crew will complete full restoration of all areas which includes final grading, topsoil, grass seed, and straw matting.
We aim to conduct our work as quickly, efficiently, and cleanly as possible. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jason Dougherty at 219-225-5136 or
The HOA is not involved in this project, so any issues would need to be brought to Jason's attention.
Thank you,
Kim Boyd, Agent
Lakes & Fairways HOA
