What's Hamptoning
Mailbox Samples
 
The mailboxes/mounting design originally presented by the Board is not a workable solution for our community. The mounting system requires custom fabrication that is inferior to standard all-metal manufactured post systems. In addition, the mailbox choice presented by the board can't be easily mounted to a standard post system without requiring custom fabrication by the installer - so neither option is durable. low-to-no maintenance, and cost-effective.

We have a new sample of a proposed mounting design and box that is set up for viewing at 108 Laurelton Street, on the walkway. Please come to look at the sample and let us know what you think.  You can also see photos here:  Box A, Box B, Post System with Boxes.
 
Some things to consider:
 
Box A is a heavy duty cast-metal powder-coated box that is durable and has all-metal detailing (flag, handle to open, all metal dovetailed door hinge).
 
Box B is similar to the style originally proposed but has plastic detailing (flag, tab to open and two plastic/metal rivets for the door). It is the less expensive box, however it is the one that requires a custom built fabrication to mount it to the post. So, any cost saving per box is negligible. 
 
Yes - the sample is tall! The metal sleeve that is currently visible and the 4 x 4 wood post over which it is installed will be below ground on a concrete footing, so the finished installations will be the height of the current mailboxes.
 
 
Every precaution has been taken to make the sample as stable as possible - however, please use caution if you wish to examine and operate the door hinges, door pulls and flags.
 
 
 
Board of Directors Election
 
 
Information on all of this year's candidates is now available in the Members section of the website, under 2017 Board of Directors Candidates. This information is also included with the voting materials being mailed to all homeowners this week.
 
This year’s election is somewhat unique because we have all 5 board member terms expiring at the same time.  While each unit may only cast one ballot or proxy, that ballot or proxy will ask you to cast 5 votes, the number equal to the number of terms expiring. 
 
The Hamptons Declaration allows “cumulative voting”, which means you may cast your votes for candidates as you see fit.  In this example where you will have 5 votes, you may cast one vote for each of 5 candidates, or you may cast 5 votes for one candidate, or any combination in between so long as you don’t cast more than 5 votes in total. 
 
After the election when the votes are tallied, the three candidates who received the highest number of votes will serve two year terms.  The next two candidates receiving the most votes will serve one year terms.  This system will re-establish the alternating term expirations of 2 board positions one year, 3 board positions the next and so on, as it should be.  This will be explained again on the proxy, but if you have questions, you may call McMaster Drake.
