From the President

  • My First Message –

    10/1/15 – Greetings, River Piners.  Let me begin my first message with thanks to the co-owners for my election to the Board of Directors; I appreciate the expression of your confidence, as well as that of the other Board members, who chose me to be President for the next year.

    Since then, I’ve survived my first Board meeting as President, and can report a complete absence of drama.  Continue reading →

Around River Pines

  • Storm Doors – 9/8/15 – With the winter weather just around the corner many co-owners consider adding a storm door or upgrading their existing storm door.  River Pines has a restriction on the type and color of storm door so check the rules and regulations under the documents menu and get the specifics on storm doors.
  • When can I put out the trash? Trash pick up is on Wednesday’s unless there is a holiday in the week and then pick up is a day later, or Thursday. More detailed information regarding trash handling is in the Association Handbook. Our objective is to keep the site as attractive as possible at all times. That’s why we tend to be fussy regarding trash, parked cars and debris around the units. Please be considerate by keeping the area around your unit neat and tidy.

River Pines is managed by McShane & Associates, Inc. and handles the day-to-day administration of the association. Most of your questions or concerns can be handled by contacting their office.

In a condominium association, the Board of Directors establishes the policies, sets the budget and then directs the management firm to carry them out.

Living in River Pines


“Just wanted to share our thoughts about the professional job that Pasko & Tony and their crew from American Euro Painting, Inc. are doing. They spent several days scraping the entire units, caulking, and replacing wood before ever starting to paint. They are methodical, neat,and very hard workers taking great pride in their workmanship. The quality of paint being used gives a rich appearance, especially the front door and garage.  Read more from neighbors
