When visiting the cart/truck, please remember to wear your mask & help maintain social distance from other customers.

We hope to see everyone out to enjoy some ice cream with fellow Parkshore neighbors.

A special thanks to Kristen for organizing these fun family neighborhood events.

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.

Parkshore HOA Annual Meeting – Update

Dear Parkshore Residents,

Please allow this letter to serve as a follow up to our April 3, 2020 communication pertaining to the cancellation/rescheduling of the Parkshore HOA annual Meeting.

At the direction of Governor DeWine and our legal council we still are not able to schedule our annual meeting at this time due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Once the Governor lifts the meeting restrictions we will notify you of the date, time and location of our annual meeting.

If you have any questions please send an email to trustees@parkshorehoa.org

Sincerely,
Parkshore HOA Trustees

Quarterly Meeting 04/09/20

The meeting started at 7:02pm.  The meeting was by conference call.

Attendees:  Donna Tomaro, Andy Drake, Cathleen Duffy, Dianne Dietz, Tim Huter, Kevin Fellona, Sherry Jones

We plan to reschedule the annual HOA meeting for after the Stay at Home order is lifted.

This month we should be able to start the process of repairing and staining the street sign posts.  As a reminder, now is a good time to repair and stain your mailbox while we are all at home.  All the board members have stain free of charge for home owners, just ask.  Parkshore has a Facebook page now.   You can use that as a resource to reach out and hire someone in the neighborhood to paint your mailbox for you, if needed. 

Thank you to Dan and Sherry Jones for removing the dead trees at the front entrance.  We will be doing spring planting at the front entrance on Saturday 5/9/20.

We still plan to have the dead trees removed on the cul-de-sacs this spring.  We will wait to plant new trees in the fall since there’s no sprinkler system on the cul-de-sacs.  We are looking into what can be done to freshen up the Spinnaker entrance as well, but there’s also no sprinkler system there.

As a reminder there are a lot of people out walking and biking with the spring weather and Stay at Home order.  Remember to drive to the right around the cul-de-sac to prevent accidents and to drive slowly.  

There are some residents who would like to see all the gas lamps lit in front of our homes.  We realize that running the gas lamps can be costly and difficult to maintain. They can be converted to electric.  Specialty Gas House will do the conversion to electric.  Their number is 614-261-0824.  There are conversion kits to convert it yourself.  Charm Lite has an LED kit for $89.95.  They also can be hired for installation.  The neighborhood is dark, and it is nice to have the lamps lit, but the neighborhood covenants just say the posts need to be maintained.   

There are still some residents that need to pay their annual HOA dues of $125.  All homeowners are required to pay HOA dues. 

There is a new bill proposed in the state senate for HOAs to be paperless and to allow dues to go towards social events.  We’ll let you know if this passes.

Meeting adjorned 8:35pm

Parkshore HOA Annual Meeting – Update

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 Trustees@parkshorehoa.org

Sincerely,

Parkshore Trustees

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.

HOA Quarterly Meeting Minutes

The meeting started at 7:04pm on 1/30/20

Attendees:  Steve Ginter, Donna Tomaro, Kevin Fellona, Tim Huter, Diane Dietz, Sherry Jones, Andy Drake, and Cathleen Duffy

Financials:  Landscaping fees will be up this year.  We have gone with a new company and we are improving the landscaping at the front entrance and in the cul-de-sacs.  HOA fees have been the same since the neighborhood began and at this point they do not need to be increased.

In spring we will have the street posts painted and repaired.  The galvanized steel sleeves were added at the base of the posts to prevent trimmer damage.

We will be re-evaluating mailboxes in the spring.  We are trying to keep the neighborhood looking good.  Thank you to everyone who has painted or replaced their mailbox already.

We will post one “No Trespassing” sign at the pond.

As a reminder it is in the HOA covenants that trash cans need to be stored out of sight.

We are planning the 2020 annual meeting for a Thursday in March at 7pm.  We are trying to book it at Orange Township Hall, and will let everyone know when it is scheduled.  Three positions on the HOA board are up for re-election this year.  Please let the HOA know if you are interested in running for a position.

Meeting adjourned at 8:33pm

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.

Regards,

Parkshore HOA Trustees
