Kona Ice Food Truck

The Kona Ice truck will be in our neighborhood Saturday, June 6th, starting at 3 PM. The truck will be located near the intersection of Greeley Ct., Waukeegan and Montclair.

Please come out and enjoy a Kona Ice while getting to know and interacting with fellow Parkshore neighbors. Kona Ice prices range from $3-$6 depending on size ordered.

Kona Ice asks that we remember to practice social distancing and have only one family member approach the truck for ordering and taking back to their families.

A special thanks to Kristen for organizing this fun family neighborhood event.

Annual HOA Fees – Friendly Reminder

Dear Parkshore Residents,

As a reminder the $125 annual HOA fees were due February 15, 2020, to avoid a late fee. The HOA board of trustees has decided to extend the payment deadline and waive the late fee charge if payment is received by Saturday, February 29, 2020.
Thanks to everyone who has paid their fees by the deadline.

The board has notified the Delaware County Sheriff’s department and an incident report has been filed. If you see suspicious activity please notify the Delaware County Sheriff’s office by calling 911 or 740-833-2800 if it is not an emergency.

Please continue to keep us informed of any incidents so we can communicate and help keep our neighborhood safe.

2019 Annual HOA Meeting

Saturday 3/8/19 at Orange Township Hall

Trustees in attendance: Donna Tomaro, Andy Drake, Michael Peirce, Sherry Jones, Cathleen Duffy

Meeting opened at 9:00am

Donna called the meeting to order. Board introduced themselves, and homeowners introduced themselves.

Donna thanked Steve Ginter for doing the finances and Jamie Stable for pond maintenance.

Steve Ginter gave the financial report. Biggest expense was a tree limb falling on electric at the entrance. Dues were due by Monday 3/11/19. 18 homeowners still owe. Donna explained annual dues were due earlier this year. They are for a calendar year, trying to get back to beginning of the year. There are three delinquent accounts in Parkshore. Two of them owe since 2015, there are liens on the homes.

President update. We’re going to do a mailbox evaluations. Everyone will get one. Hopefully no one is offended, but some of the mailboxes are worn and in need of repair/replacement. New boxes are lighter in color. Stain was changed to water base 2-3 years ago. We will continue to provide the stain. In the same mailing as the mailbox evaluation there will be the social committee information and the directory sign up. The directory will include public information (name and address of home owner) and you can opt in to include phone number.  There was discussion about including information for children in the neighborhood available for neighborhood jobs such as mailbox painting, dog walking, babysitting.

In the upcoming years we may need to budget for replacement/painting of street signs. There was a suggestion to put 5” wrap around the base of street sign poles to protect them from mowing/trimming trauma. The board will explore this option.

The trustees received an email about paving Westwick. The HOA does not pave streets. Orange Township is in charge of paving the roads. Residents have called Orange Township, but so far the township has only added fill to the cracks. Beth Hughes was the contact person at Orange Township, she is no longer in that position and park and recs meetings were discontinued.

Construction of the bike path should begin this summer. It will extend from Bale Canyon to Parkshore. There will be a cross walk somewhere to the Visitor Center. The HOA will reassess the front entrance landscape after it’s complete.

There was discussion of falling trees along Lewis Center Rd. After the meeting Sherry Jones did contact Orange Township and was told that the fallen trees are taken care of by Delaware County. A report was filed giving Delaware County notice of the down trees.

Jamie Stabl gave a pond update. An aerator was installed, helps with algae and reduces need for chemicals. Last year we had a company treat the pond and there was no algae bloom. The current bid for 2019 is 6 treatments, the cost did increase about $100 from last year. The trustees approved this expense. Jamie is cleaning the fountains. The pond only partially freezes in the winter because of the aerators. NO ONE SHOULD EVER WALK OR SKATE ON THE POND! The pond is the property of the individual home owners living around the pond.

There was a question regarding the increase in legal fees. The Property Management fee increased for the year and a legal firm was retained for the HOA.

There was a question regarding approval for home maintenance through the Design Review Committee. General maintenance doesn’t need to go through design review. Change in color or structure needs to go through design review.

There was a complaint regarding utility trucks parking on lawns, particularly homes close to the entrance of the neighborhood, and cost of maintaining the lawn. Stakes marking the edge of the lawn have to be removed in April. There is a portion of the lawns by the road designated as Orange Township easement, homeowners are required to maintain the lawn but cannot alter it.

It was discussed that the Township is purchasing speed limit signs that post speeds. The HOA can request one for the neighborhood.

As a friendly reminder spring is coming there will be more children
and dog walkers on the streets, with no sidewalks please drive slowly through the neighborhood.

There were two open positions on the board for 2019. Andy Drake ran again. There were no additional nominations. Andy will serve another two year term. Michael Peirce has agreed to stay on temporarily, but he is moving in a year so will not be able to serve a full two year term. Anyone interested in being a trustee for the HOA, please let us know.

Meeting adjourned at 10:00am

Winter NewsLetter

The Parkshore HOA Board hopes everyone had an enjoyable holiday season!

Over the last couple of years, we have seen a lot of new neighbors move in to Parkshore. We would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone that has joined the community.

Updates:
We are in the process of updating our directory and are hopeful to have it ready for distribution early spring, so if you have not had the opportunity to meet your new neighbors the updated directory can help. To ensure we are including your information correctly we will be providing a mailer for you to complete your name, address and phone number. Also for future directories there will be a section that includes information on neighbors that would be interested in babysitting, pet care, lawn maintenance and other information. Please look for a mailer soon with more information.

We are also looking to put together a social committee that can plan events and activities for everyone in the community throughout the year. If you are interested please contact the Parkshore HOA Board for more details. We are very excited to introduce this to our community.

Bike Path Update:
We have been informed that the bike path construction on Lewis Center Road will begin the spring of 2019. It was initially slated to start the fall of 2018.

Reminders:
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. (https://parkshorehoa.org/design-review-board)

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 stained, repaired or replaced. Once the weather starts to warm up 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 (trustees@parkshorehoa.org). Information pertaining to mailbox maintenance can be located on the Parkshore HOA website (https://parkshorehoa.org/mailbox-standards)

Important dates:
If you haven’t already received the 2019 annual HOA dues invoice from Real Property Management, you will be soon. The annual fees will remain the same at $125 and will be due by March 1, 2019. These fees will be good for the calendar year 2019. Please be advised that a late charge will be applied for any payment received after the March 1, 2019 due date.

The Annual HOA meeting will be Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 9:00am at the Orange Township Hall. There will be two open trustee positions up for election. If you are interested in running for a position on the board, please provide your letter of intent to any board member by March 7, 2019. These two positions will be voted onto the Board during the Annual HOA meeting.

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

Sincerely
Parkshore HOA Board
