The attached picture is an ESTIMATED time schedule for the painting of the houses. Please be reminded that this can change at any time and without our knowledge!
The speed limit in our community is 15MPH!! It seems that not everyone is abiding by this speed limit! Another issue we have is that cars are not coming to a complete stop at the stop signs. They are there for a reason. YOU MUST COME TO A COMPLETE STOP!! We are proud that we are a community where the residents can get out and walk or ride their bikes. We live in the perfect climate to enjoy the outdoors and our community should be a safe place for our residents to be out and about! They shouldn’t have to worry or “risk their lives” because of some that can not obey the traffic laws. The Meadows does not want to have to hire a police officer or outside security firm to police our streets nor do we want to have to install speed bumps through out the community. This will only cost the community money! We don’t want to see any of our residents get hurt by someone else’s negligence. PLEASE SLOW DOWN AND OBEY THE STOP SIGNS!! Thank you!
In front of each home in the Meadows is a pole light. The Home Owners Association would like you to have your pole light on each evening for safety reasons. We only have a few street lights in the Meadows and if we keep the Meadows well lit our streets and neighborhood should be safer.
Your light post is equipped with a sensor to automatically turn your post light on each evening and off each morning as long as you leave the power switch in the on position. For most homes, that switch is one of the three switches just inside the front door.
If you are having trouble making your lamp work, call the office. We will put in a trouble call and see what we can do to get it working. Remember, we will replace the sensor if it goes bad, but light bulbs are the home owners responsibility
Garbage is picked up on Tuesdays (brown can only) and Fridays (brown & blue can), and may be placed at the end of your driveway after 5pm the previous day.
Bulk pick up is on Wednesdays and may be placed on the grass away from your mailbox after 5pm the previous day. Thank you!!
The Volunteer Architectural Committee has been commissioned by the Board of Directors. These volunteers will provide initial screening of Architectural Change forms for plantings. The committee members will come out and review the proposed plantings with the home owner and make recommendations to the Board of Directors concerning the approval or disapproval of the projects.
The committee members will also tour the community noting homes with over grown or unkempt plantings. They will notify the Board of Directors of any homes that may need attention. The Board of Directors will notify the home owner of the problem and help set up a way to resolve the problem. By working together we can keep our community looking great.
At the March 20th HOA Board of Directors Meeting, the Painting Contractor Bids were shared with the Board of Directors and explained by Painting Contractors representative Jim Giasullo. After many months of consultation the Board of Directors has decided to award the House Painting and order the job to commence late Fall of this year. This all depends of course on the weather. Fall months will be a target date but weather, supplies and staffing may affect the date we choose.
In anticipation of this project beginning, the months prior are up to the homeowner. You need to be attentive to the needs of the wood, trim around the gutters, and most important - if you have overgrown foliage that needs to be trimmed. Have it ready for the painters. They will not paint if your overgrown foliage prevents them from rolling or spraying the paint onto the house. They will not be responsible for the harm or damage to any overgrown shrubs that have not been talked about ahead of time. Be alert, some of you have objects up against the walkways, the painters will not be moving anything. All houses will be painted.
We will have more to say about this MAJOR project in the next few months. Yes, attend the HOA monthly meetings, watch your newsletter for updates and just before this project begins the contractors have suggested a walk thru the community to discuss the "problem" houses that the Owners will need to attend to.
