2014 Association Dues

We are pleased to announce that our annual dues will remain at $125.00 for 2014. Invoices were mailed out to all homeowners on January 20th and payment is due by February 15th. There is a $25 late fee for all payments received after February 15th.

Payments should be mailed to:

Parkshore Homeowners Association
P.O. Box 431
Lewis Center, OH 43035

Reminder: Stash Your Trash Cans

Our covenants state that trash and yard waste containers are not permitted to be visible from the street. If you have your cans behind landscaping that looses its leaves allowing the containers to be viewed from the street in the winter months, you will need to move them into your garage.

This is a $25/day violation, so please just put them away as soon as possible after trash pickup.

Host Needed for Our Annual Wine Tasting

We are looking for a volunteer to host the annual wine tasting party. This event is usually held in February or March. The HOA provides all paper products and water. Everyone brings a beverage and an appetizer or dessert to share.

This is a very fun event and brings neighbors and friends together after a long, cold winter.

If you would like to host, please contact Frances.

Mailbox Staining

This Spring when weather permits we are having all of our street signs and stops signs re stained. We have asked Real Property Management to send letters out to residents that need their mailboxes re stained, repaired or replaced. Replacement can only be ordered from Cedar Craft 614-759-1600 they are the only company that carries our correct mailbox. If your mailbox needs stained please call Frances@ 740-816-1464 or Dale @740-548-7010 to get the correct stain that we will provide to you at no cost.

Reminders

I have also been asked by several residents to remind everyone that with the warmer weather to please be aware of your speed as children and adults will be outside enjoying the weather.  Another concern that has been brought to my attention is dogs running loose and people not picking up after their dog. Please be a courteous pet owner and obey the Orange Township codes.

Question was raised about tree replacement, especially ash trees.  Frances explained that only trees in common areas were the responsibility of the HOA.  There were trees on Buckman identified as potentially in need of removal that would be the responsibility of the HOA.  Frances will investigate.
