Parkshore Facebook Page

Dear Parkshore Residents,

As we navigate through this time of uncertainty regarding the coronavirus we would like to extend an invitation to connect all neighbors through a Parkshore Neighborhood Facebook page to make sure all are safe and have any support, if necessary.  We have created a Parkshore Neighborhood adult Facebook page for anyone in the 145 households within Parkshore. If you are interested in joining the group it is titled: Parkshore Neighborhood Group.

There will be an administrator of the Facebook page that will monitor for appropriate content and allow for the privacy of others by not admitting anyone to the site that does not reside in Parkshore. If there is anything you would like to see posted to the site, any suggestions for improvement, or any posts you feel are not appropriate please let us know.  You can reach us at

Important Pond Information

Dear Parkshore Lot Owner,

Over the years, it has been communicated to residents of Parkshore that they are allowed to fish in the stormwater retention basin that is located behind the homes on Buckman Street and Westwick Place.  Recently, we worked with the Association’s legal counsel to research the Association’s legal obligations with respect to the basin.   We have determined that there is an easement that is granted to the Association to maintain the basin, there is no easement granted to Parkshore owners to enter onto the lots owned by individual owners surrounding the basin.  As a result, anyone who enters onto an owner’s lot so that they can access the basin to fish may be considered trespassing.

Based on this information, we want to clarify that the Association cannot grant residents of Parkshore permission to enter onto another owner’s lot to access the basin.  It is up to the discretion of the residents who own property that includes the basin, to allow access to the basin that is on their property.

Mailer from Associa – Real Property Management

The Board would like to apologize for any confusion regarding the mailer that was received from Associa – Real Property Management.  The information received was not in the format, nor of the direction that was presented to them. The specific instructions provided were to mail the notices out to each homeowner referencing only their mailbox.  At this time the Board is still investigating, but we are told that only the Buckman Street mailbox evaluations were received.   The Buckman Street mailbox evaluation spreadsheet was mistakenly sent and the blank form should have been completed with your mailbox condition. 

The board is in the process of evaluating how to rectify this issue as well as working on an alternative to avoid this type of situation recurring.

Spring Newsletter

It appears Spring is finally here, and soon everyone will be out enjoying the warmer weather. We have had a few new families join the neighborhood over the winter months. Please join us in welcoming any new resident to the neighborhood.

We are hopeful that these communications are helpful with providing information that occurs throughout the community. Please do not hesitate with providing suggestions for information you would like to see in future newsletters.

Parkshore Web:

Although there are instances where we may need to send hardcopy mailers, it is our intent to move to be “Green” with our communications moving forward. Our plan is to email as much information as possible and to post pertinent information to the Parkshore HOA website at  Please spread the word and encourage your neighbors to visit the website to register for communications and find all relevant HOA information. As a reminder emails are not shared and you are free to unsubscribe at any time. Your privacy is important to us. Signing up is easy by going to the Parkshore website at and following the directions at “sign up to receive email updates.”


Everyone will be receiving a mailer with information about updating the directory for the residents of Parkshore. The directory will include the publicly available name and address of the home owner(s) and with your interest and permission we can include a phone number(s) in the directory. In addition to your phone number(s), if you have interest in including information for anyone in your household who is available for neighborhood jobs such as mailbox painting, dog walking, and/or babysitting, please send an email to the trustees with the information you would like to have published to

Social Committee:

Now is the time to form a Social Committee to take advantage of the Spring and soon to be Summer. Everyone will receive information in the mailer about signing up. The Social Committee will help with bringing the neighborhood together through planned and organized events. For those that are interested in being on the Social Committee please contact the Parkshore Board at


We would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents that have maintained or recently completed the necessary repairs or replacement of their mailbox. There are still, however, some mailboxes that need to be either repaired and stained or replaced and stained. We will be sending notices to residents whose mailboxes do not comply with the standards outlined in the Declaration of Covenants. As a reminder the stain for the mailboxes is provided by the HOA free of charge. If you need mailbox stain, please contact any board member at Information pertaining to mailbox maintenance can be located on the Parkshore HOA website at

Please be mindful of the posted speed limit throughout the community.

More and more children, dog walkers and people are on the streets with Spring here to take advantage of the nicer weather. Since the neighborhood does not have sidewalks, please drive slowly through the neighborhood.

As a reminder, if you are considering any changes to your property, the Parkshore Covenant Architectural Standard requires that the proposed changes be reviewed and approved by the Design Review Board. The application for submitting these proposed changes can be found on the Parkshore HOA website at

Also, as a reminder the $125.00 annual HOA fees were due no later than March 10, to avoid a late fee. Thanks to all who have paid their fees by this deadline.


Due to the age and deterioration of the street signs throughout Parkshore, we are obtaining quotes to have them repaired or replaced through Cedar Craft.  Cedar Craft also has a remedy to avoid damage to the new posts by placing a galvanized wrap on the bottom of the post, eliminating damage from mowing and trimming.

As always if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns please feel free to contact any of the board members.

Please know that I will continue to be active in Parkshore and look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood.

Regards ,

Payment Reminder

Dear Parkshore Residents we hope everyone enjoyed spring break and time spent with family. A reminder the annual dues payment was to be received by March 31 to avoid the late fee. We will extend and waive the late fee charge if your payment is postmarked by April 9 due to the Easter holiday. Thank you to those that have already paid.


Easter Egg Hunt Reminder

Dear Parkshore Residents a reminder to drop off your filled Easter eggs to 2849 Greeley Court . We will have the hunt with sunshine or snow flakes. The annual Parkshore meeting is scheduled for Thursday April 19 at 7pm at Orange Township Hall. We hope to see you at both events.


Spring Newsletter

Dear Parkshore Residents,
This weekend marks the time for everyone to spring forward and set their clocks ahead. With the snow this week Mother Nature doesn’t seem to agree. Let’s hope we had our last snow fall this week. As a reminder Orange Township requires all reflectors to be removed by April 1.

Our Easter Egg hunt hosted by the Smith family will be on Sunday March 25th @1pm. Please drop off 1 dozen filled eggs for each participant to 2849 Greeley Court you may leave the eggs by the front door. The HOA will provide cookies and juice boxes.

We have had numerous questions concerning the gas lamp posts as several have fallen down due to heavy winds and rusting at the baseline. If this happens immediately turn off the gas line and have it capped. Several residents have chosen to convert theirs to electric as it is more cost effective. Charm Lite 614-330-1746 sells an LED kit for $89 if you are able to install yourself or you may contact them for complete installation pricing. Speciality Gas House 614-261-0824 carries the replacement mantels. While we continue to see the benefits of having the lamps lit to provide safety and ambience the language written in the bylaws does not specifically require them to be lit or replaced if they become inoperatble or damaged.

Free mailbox stain kits are available please contact any trustee to pick one up. If you have missing or broken pieces please replace the box. Mailboxes can be purchased from Rousch hardware in Westerville or from Cedar Craft (614-759-1600). Uniformity of the mailboxes contributes to the over all aesthetics of the neighborhood .

Our 2018 annual dues have been sent out. If you have not received yours please contact Lisa Bloomer @ Real Property Management 614-766-6500. All dues must be paid by March 31st to avoid late fees. Please mail all payments to Parkshore HOA P.O. Box 431 , Lewis Center ,Ohio 43035 . Thank you if you have already paid.

Our annual HOA meeting will be held on Thursday April 17th @ 7 pm. There will be 3 open trustee positions available for nominations. If you are interested please submit a letter of intent to if trustee positions are not filled it will require Real Property Mgmt to take on additional duties which will increase our annual dues significantly.

Please remember if you are planning any changes or improvements to the exterior of your property (including painting) all required documents must be submitted to the Design Review Board for approval prior to starting your project . You may access all forms from the Parkshore website .

If you have any questions or concerns please contact any trustee.


Fall Newletter

Dear Parkshore Residents,

It seems like fall is finally here and everyone is enjoying the cooler temperatures.

Parkshore Entrance Lighting
We are in the final stages of getting bids for the repair of the entrance lights. The lights have been a continuous problem shorting out when it rains or overall just not working. The electric was not put in properly many years ago with several lines which were not put in conduit which is not up to code. We are awaiting one final bid to permanently resolve this issue.

Group Rate on Winterization
Hidden Springs will again offer a group rate for Parkshore for irrigation/aeration needs. Our group shut off date is Saturday, October 21st. The price for irrigation shut off is $55 and core aeration is $55 for standard-sized yards of 7500 sq. feet or less.

If you choose to have core aeration done, simply remember to let the tech know you want the aeration service so that your sprinkler heads can be marked during winterization. Dog fences are the owners responsibility to mark so lines are not cut by the aerator.

If you are able to have your system shut down during the week you can avoid the Saturday wait and Hidden Springs will still honor the group pricing. Call Frances at 740-816-1464 to be scheduled for weekday shut-off.

Halloween will be observed on Tuesday, October 31st from 6-8 PM. Please remember with the change of season it is getting darker much earlier. Please drive slowly and watch for children playing and adults walking.

As always if you have any concerns just contact any trustee.
