Why Pay Your HOA Dues

HOA Dues are mandatory and the annual payments are used:

  • To pay for property taxes on all common areas.

  • To pay for maintenance of the common areas.

  • To pay for seasonal landscaping and maintenance of entrance area.

  • To pay for legal fees in connection with dues collection and administrative costs for the management company.

Spring and Summer Maintenance Reminders

April showers bring May flowers … and weeds!

Now that lawns are starting to green up, it is a good time to remember some of the most important lawn maintenance issues that keep our neighborhood looking great:

    Front yards must be sodded and free of weeds – remove weeds from flower beds as well. Any natural or bare dirt areas must be covered with mulch. It is critical to apply pre-emergent now to prevent weeds this summer.
    Lawns must be cut a minimum of every two weeks during growing season.
    Remember to keep grass edged cleanly at the street and driveways and refrain from leaving clippings in the street or blowing them into drainage culverts.
    Lots of owners will be walking the family pooch more often in the warm weather — our covenants require you to pick up dog waste … and that also means in the common areas as well!

REMINDER: All resident owned vehicles should be parked in the garages or driveways of their respective residences. Cars cannot block access to their neighbor's driveway or mailbox.

Members of the Board, along with SMGmanagement of Atlanta LLC carry out regular inspections and send out covenant violation notices. Any resident may submit potential covenant violations. Members of the board or the management agency will confirm any violation before a notice is sent to the home owner.
