Landscaping: Some landscaping improvements continue removing more of the old juniper bushes and cleaning up natural areas that have become overgrown. As a reminder, now that the warmer temperatures have arrived, homeowners and residents may not put down mulch with personal plantings due to its nature for termite attraction and breeding. Personal plantings are limited to the footprint of each townhome lot. No planting of flowers, bushes, shrubs, or trees should occur in the Common Area or they will be subject for removal. Always submit an Architectural Request before planting and a Maintenance Agreement may be required.
Front Railings: The front railing project has resumed now that warmer Spring temperatures have returned. With the project now 75% complete it is anticipated to be finished by the end of the year. The progression of the project continues to be dependent on weather conditions, and primarily, as finances allow.
Power Washing: Vinyl siding, gutters and downspouts, front brick stairs and stoops of all townhomes were recently power washed for Spring cleaning.
Entrances: Compliments for the redesigned and refreshed island at the Homeplace entrance on Hearthwood Court is appreciated. The island at the entrance on Autumncrest Drive will be redesigned in the Spring next year in the same manner.
Service: The Board of Directors would like to thank Barbara Baker for her service as a Board member since 2009 serving as Director and Vice-President during her tenure. Anyone interested in being a member of the Board please contact the management company.
Storm Cleanup: Your patience is appreciated for the time consuming efforts of gathering and removing the broken limbs, large branches, and trees from the community due to the very late Winter ice storm. The community was very fortunate that no vehicles and townhomes were damaged.
Rear Decks: After a recent walkthrough of the community rear decks were observed being used for outside storage. Rear decks, including the area underneath, and on the ground adjacent to the entire rear deck structure, are not to be used for outside storage. All items should be stored in the utility closet on the rear deck or inside the townhome.
Parking: Complaints have still been received regarding parking. Residents should not use Visitor parking spaces on a daily basis and is prohibited. Each unit is allocated two assigned parking spaces. Residents or guests parked in assigned spaces of others, on grass, in designated illegal areas, on any of the main Homeplace streets or areas which would cause partial blocking of streets, or driveways, may be subject to towing at the expense of the vehicle owner. Overflow parking is available at the lower rear of the property if all Visitor Spaces are in use.
Sanitation: Trash and recycle containers still continue to remain in front of townhomes, on streets, and sidewalks days after sanitation pickup has been completed. Should trash and recycle containers continue to not be stored properly homeowners will be notified and subject to fines. It is expected every week to have all trash and recycle containers returned to the rear of the unit, not the side of the unit, by 7pm, the day of pickup. Trash and recycle containers are to be stored upright in an orderly fashion at the rear of the townhome with lids secured at all times to prevent attraction of wild or stray animals. Where space is available, trash and recycle containers may be placed underneath rear decks.
Reminders: The Board of Directors usually meet on the fourth Tuesday every other month. All homeowners who wish to discuss a community concern at one of the scheduled Board meetings are asked to please contact the management company one week in advance to be added to the agenda. As always, please refer to the guidelines that are addressed most often regarding Homeplace at Adams Farm for non-compliance located under the Community Guidelines > General tab.
