Newsletter – 2nd Quarter 2015

Yearly Dues Statements Have Been Mailed

Your 2015 HOA dues statements have been mailed.  You may have noticed the total is now $44.51, which is 5% higher than last years dues. This amount equates to just $2.12 more over the course of the year. We appreciate all of our homeowners and must occasionally raise the dues to ensure we can continue to maintain the common grounds to your standards.  Most of these funds go to the maintenance of the common ground area at the park, including utilities, and new projects to improve the park, but some are also used to organize the yearly events that we all enjoy.
Please drop your check in the mail today to ensure to meet the July 1 deadline and avoid late fees.  Questions? Submit this form.

School’s Out for Summer!

It’s official, the kids are out of school for the Summer! This means you will see more action on the streets at all times of the day, so please be mindful of our speed limits. Throughout most of the neighborhood the limit is 25mph.  The local police have increased their patrols to ensure the safety of our community and the families within it. Enjoy the Summer with your family and friends. Stay cool.

Reserve the Pavilion or Lighted Sign

The CLHA pavilion is a great place to hold a gathering of family or friends and it’s FREE. The common area playground and ball fields are located nearby. An electrical output is available and two fixed charcoal grills near the pavilion can be used for outdoor cooking.

The CLHA pavilion can only be reserved for private, personal get-togethers such as birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, family reunions, and picnics. It’s not available for organizational meetings or fundraisers.

Personal, non-commercial messages (for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, etc.,) can be posted on the CLHA lighted sign. The charge is $5 per day for a maximum of 5 days, payable in advance.

Follow these linkes to request a reservation of the CLHA pavilion or make lighted sign reservation. You can also call our voicemail line for reservations. We require a 2 week advanced notice. Only members in good standing (dues are current) can reserve either option.
