Easter Egg Hunt

Dear Parkshore Residents,
The HOA will sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday April 9th @ 1pm. Greg and Stephanie Smith will host this event at their home at 2849 Greeley Court. Please drop off a dozen FILLED eggs for each child participating. You may leave the eggs at the front door. The HOA will provide cookies and juice boxes.

We are still looking for a host for our wine and cheese party. Please let Frances know if you are interested in hosting.

Spring is finally here, I hope, so a reminder that Orange township requires all reflectors be removed by April 1.

I have also been asked to remind all dog owners to clean up after their pets when walking.

We will putting together additional stain kits for your mailboxes. Please evaluate your mailbox. Many need to be repaired or replaced. In addition to this being a required maintenance per the covenants, the uniformity and astetics maintain the beauty and uniqueness of Parkshore.

If you are planning any changes or improvements to the exterior of your property please remember to submit all required documents to the design review board for approval before starting. You may access all forms from the website.

We will be announcing the summer flamingo Friday schedule in the next newsletter.

As always you may contact any trustee with any concerns or questions.

Regards,
Frances

Spring Newsletter

Dear Parkshore Residents,
I thought spring was just around the corner until I saw the snow coming down this evening. Hopefully this is our last time to use the shovels . The department stores already are putting out their swimwear so warmer weather has to be coming soon.

A reminder 2017 annual dues need to be paid by March 15th to avoid late fees. Thank you if you have already paid. Please make sure to send them to P.0 Box 431 Lewis Center 43035.

We have had many questions concerning usage of bendable reflectors to protect damage to lawns. We contacted Orange Township for clarification. Beth Hughs has confirmed the township owns a 30 foot right of way from the center of the road along all properties. As homeowners ,it is our responsibility to maintain this easement . Bendable reflector polls are allowed along the roadway only during the winter months, however , no other obstructions such as rocks ,boulders, metal polls , etc are allowed at anytime and will be removed by the township. This is a township ordinance so please remove all reflectors by April 1 .

We would like to have an Easter Egg hunt this year if anyone is willing to host by allowing the hunt to be in their yard. The HOA will provide tidbits , juice boxes and coffee . All participants would need to drop off 1 dozen filled plastic eggs for each child hunting. Please contact Frances if you are interested . You can pick whatever date works for your schedule.

We would also like to have our annual wine and cheese party if anyone is willing to host the event. The HOA provides the paper products and participants are asked to bring an appetizer and beverage to share. Contact Frances if you are interested.

We will again be partnering with the Shores for the annual garage sale on June 2nd and 3rd. More information will follow along with the Flamingo Friday schedule.

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

Regards,
Frances

Frances opened the meeting by thanking Steve Ginter for handling the Parkshore Financials.

Steve reviewed the financials; detailing the actual to budget expenses for 2016 and provided the 2017 budget. Once again, the board agreed that the current dues are sufficient to maintain the common area property and provide for any unexpected expenses.

Frances discussed the high water bill. She is pursuing the construction company whose truck parked on the HOA common area property breaking the irrigation heads causing a leak.

Frances reviewed and passed out information on local road construction.

Frances made the group aware that there were two positions up for renewal; Michael Peirce and Michael Henn. Both Michael Peirce and Michael Henn expressed an interest to run again for a board position. Andrew Drake expressed an interest to run for one of the open positions. Ballots were cast and tallied. Michael Peirce will continue for another two year term on the board. Welcome Andrew Drake who will assume the other open position.

We would like to extend thanks to Michael Henn for his two year board commitment. Michael has been instrumental in negotiating and securing the 2017 landscaping contracts. Michael will continue to be a big part of the community by providing welcome packets to new residents.

No additional business discussed.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:35AM

Next door Brochure

Dear Parkshore Residents,

We have received several phone calls and emails concerning a mailing about Nextdoor that was sent to some residents of Parkshore from realtor Tracey Hartson.
 
We wanted to make sure everyone knows that the HOA is not involved with this. 
 
You can Google Nextdoor for reviews and other information about it.

Frances

Reminders and updates

Dear Parkshore Residents,

We had a few incidents over the weekend that required assistance from the Delaware Sheriff. The Sheriff  reported other Lewis Center neighborhoods were targeted as well. What may start out as a harmless prank could escalate very quickly to a dangerous situation that could yield unexpected tragic consequences. This is especially true when incidents occur in the late evening or early am hours. Please help us keep everyone safe by reporting any suspicious activity to the Sheriff.

The new directories are being sent to the printer this week and will be mailed out as soon as they are finished.

I wish everyone a very safe and happy Holiday Season.

Regards,

Frances

Fall newsletter

Dear Parkshore residents

As we move into the fall weather we would like to address a few housekeeping items.

Property Changes: If you plan on making any changes to your property, please remember everything must be pre-approved through the design review board. Adhering to this process helps maintain our high standards and property values. The application can be downloaded directly from this link.

Mailboxes: Several mailboxes need to be replaced or stained with the correct color. We will be sending notices to residents whose mailboxes do not comply with the standards. The HOA board provides stain kits free of charge to help you with this. Contact any trustee to arrange for a kit.

Gas Lamps: Several residents have asked about converting their gas lights to electric. This is permitted as long as they look the same. Specialty Gas House has the correct conversion kits as well as replacement parts. Specialty Gas is located at 4500 Indianola Ave Columbus 43214 and are open Mon.-Sat. The phone number is: 614-261-0824.

Irrigation Winterization and Core Aeration: Our date for the group irrigation winterization is Saturday, October 22. Anyone who is available during the week and would like to schedule the service for a weekday call 1-800-578-1913 ext 3. You will still be eligible to receive the group rate as long as you let them know that you live in Parkshore. Scheduling during the week will cut down on the wait time.

The group rate on Core Aeration is also available. 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 have marked so lines are not cut by the aerator.

Follow this link to sign up for these services.

Directory Information: This is the last call to change any information for the Parkshore directory. If we do not have your current information we will print what is published on the Delaware County Website.

Please also remember as it gets darker earlier to drive slowly through the neighborhood as it is more difficult to see kids playing and people walking.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact any trustee.

Regards,
Frances Catanese
President Parkshore HOA
