COMMUNITY NEWS

This Board, unfortunately, had to look at rising costs of our vendors which necessitated the need to raise our monthly COA homeowners fee $5.00 a month to $115 monthly.  Our fees have not been raised since 2016.  Although we understand that most homeowners are on a tight budget, it was a necessary evil that needed to be done.

We are now approving the removal of some trees at homeowner sites.  This removal, if deemed necessary, will need to be approved by the Board as well as getting approval by the Board for the type of replacement tree that can be planted.  Any tree removed must be replaced by another Board-approved tree.  Replacement trees must be done within 60 days of removal of any existing tree and done at homeowners' expense.

A very important notice has been posted about pets on leashes and the necessity of being supervised by the pet owner at all times.  Ohio Law requires that all pet owners have their pets on a leash at all times when outside.  Additionally, our by-laws state "All dogs must be attached to its pet owner when outside by means of a leash.  No pet shall be left outside without on a tie up without the owner present as well."  We have had a rash of dog bites in our community as of late.  Violators will be turned into the police for violation of Ohio State Law, and possibly fined by the management company for violating our community by-laws.  For those who rent, any fines imposed will go directly to the homeowner.  Any dog who bites or attacks any person or another pet will need to be put into quarantine and will not be permitted back on the premises.  We cannot stress this strongly enough.  Abide by State law and our By-Laws to guarantee the safety of all residents and their pets.

As a reminder, trash cans and recycle bins are permitted to be placed outside the garage on Tuesday evenings for pick up on Wednesday mornings.
