It's beginning to look alot like Christmas....lights and decorations are popping up everywhere.
Have you seen our front entrance decorations? Thank you to our HOA Board members that were out there putting them up to make The Pines look pretty for the Holidays!

Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays Pine's Residents!

It's that time of year where thoughts are turned to decorating the house and yard.

The Pines at Kimball Bridge HOA announces its time for the 2019 Holiday Lighting Contest!!!  The contest offers residents an opportunity to showcase their creative talents with memorable holiday displays.  Participants should be original, colorful and imaginative in decorating the exterior of their homes with lights, seasonal characters and appropriate decorations.  Judges will be looking for the most "electrifying" display.  The top four entries will receive award prizes.  This contest is all about fun, holiday cheer, and the sense of pride in the community it inspires.  Judging will be on Tuesday, December 17th, so light up those displays. The Pine's wishes all of our residents a happy and safe holiday season.

We regret to inform the neighborhood that we will not be having the

Halloween party this year.
We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween.

 

**********************************************************************************

 

In response to the comments regarding the Halloween party, the HOA board would like to remind our neighbors we have lost three key board members (including our Social Events Chair) in the last year that have moved out of the neighborhood. Our efforts in recruiting replacement board members have been unsuccessful. Please keep in mind that board members volunteer and give their personal time and efforts on your behalf throughout the year to first and foremost preserve the value of our properties. The HOA board has many responsibilities including managing finances, enforcing covenants and much more. We also do our best to put on parties and functions. All of this in addition to managing our own families, homes, and careers.

 

The board certainly recognizes that we could have done a better job of communicating through Facebook and will do our best to improve communication going forward. However, getting additional volunteers/board members would facilitate this and many more dire needs. We recently sent out the 2020 Dues Notices which include requests for volunteers. Please fill this out if interested in volunteering in the HOA and we will reach out to you. We can definitely use your help.

 

With all that said, the board has been in deep conversations regarding a family-friendly party/event as a Halloween replacement for 2019. We're looking at options that are not as labor-intensive nor require heavy lifting by board members and/or volunteers. Hopefully, something before the end of the year depending on scheduling. Stay tuned, more info to come on this.

 

Thanks in advance for your understanding and please let us know if you need anything in the meantime.

Winners for the Dec 2018 Best Decorated contest!

Congratulations to those who won, and thanks to all those who got into the festive spirit.

                                                 Happy Holidays Pine's Residents! 
It's that time of year where thoughts are turned to decorating the house and yard. The 3 houses chosen for "Best Decorated" House/Yard displaying the most attractive presentation of the season will have placed on their yard the "Best Decorated" Award sign; and this year we're giving prizes to the top 3 merriest houses: $25 for Third, $50 for Second and $75 for First!  so put out your lights and decorations. Judging will be on December 18 after dark so light up those displays. The Pine's wishes all of our residents a happy and safe holiday season.

The board is working on putting the Halloween party together but we really need 3-4 volunteers to help out from 5-6pm during the party. We're offering an incentive to any high school-aged kids in the neighborhood that are willing to help out ($20 each). If you are interested or you have a high schooler who is interested, please  send a message to the board at thepineshoapresident@gmail.com.

Thank you to everyone who came out it was great fun!

The annual "Spring Fling/Ice Cream Social" is on Sunday, April 29th.

Grilled Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, Veggie burgers and ice cold treats.  

2 - 5 pm  10985 Pinehigh Drive in the driveway (Our HOA President's house).

 

Watch the website/fb/community bulletin board at the main entrance as we get closer in case of inclement weather issues.  As of 4/26 the forecast is sunny and warm.

     COMMUNITY SECURITY    April 2018                                        

 

Last month  two 18 to 20 year-old men were seen jumping fences and cutting through several backyards in the neighborhood. A neighbor saw them hiding in the bushes of a lady who was out working in her yard nearby. The neighbor confronted them, they fled, and the police were called. The police searched the entire subdivision and could not find them.

 

In light of this incident to follow is a review of a posting from 2016 of what to do if you observe suspicious or dangerous activities in the Pines.

 

These are instructions from The Alpharetta Police Department (our liaison with the department is Officer Billy Waddell) on measures to follow if you observe suspicious or dangerous activities or incidents in our community.

 

Contact Alpharetta Police Dispatch (678-297-6300) if you see an incident in progress that does not represent immediate danger – the police will investigate.

 

Any incident involving an animal should be reported to Fulton County Animal Control so it can be investigated.  The Fulton County Animal Control number is 404-613-0358. This number is good 24 hours a day. Call the police if the situation requires immediate attention.

 

Any incident involving children’s welfare can be reported to the Fulton County Department of Children’s Services.  Call 419-337-0010 Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Any other time call the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office at 419-335-4010. The Alpharetta Police will also respond to a call involving children’s welfare.

 

CALL THE POLICE - 911 - when a crime is taking place or a situation appears to be out-of-hand!  An actual witness to the event should make the call if at all possible.

 

SOLICITORS – We have “NO SOLICITING” signs at each entrance to our community. We have complied with Alpharetta rules that make these signs legal and the laws enforceable. Alpharetta DOES NOT issue permits for soliciting. Therefore, someone who tells you he / she has a permit to solicit DOES NOT! You can call the police and have these people removed. (We do make exceptions for organizations such as local schools, Girl Scout cookies, etc.)

 

These are situations that should be managed by the professionals listed above and NOT by the HOA board members.

 

********

Notify the HOA, too, so we can get the word out. 

 
Keep your garage doors closed and your doors locked. Don't forget to lock your car doors even in your driveway and keep valuables out of sight.

Information On The City Of Alpharetta's Response To Hurricane Irma

 
http://mailchi.mp/2d77c67bce45/alpharetta-provides-information-on-recovery-from-irma
 
ADDRESSING DAMAGE TO HOMES AND DECKS
If the passage of Hurricane Irma has resulted in structural damage to your home, deck, or other buildings, you are probably wondering what to do.

Many repairs will require building permits and inspections to ensure that the work is done properly and the value of your home is protected.  If you are working with your insurance company and their contractors, they will typically secure those permits and inspections.  But, what if you are going it alone?

Start by taking photos of the damages, both close up and from a distance (if Possible), and send them attached to an email with your name, address, and telephone number to jbrooker@alpharetta.ga.us.  Our Building Official will review the situation and advise whether or not permits will be required and provide other helpful information.  Alternatively, have your contractor handle all of the permits and inspections, but make sure that they show you the building permit before any work begins.
 
STORM DAMAGE TO TREES
The normal process for being able to remove trees from private property may not meet emergency needs following the passage of Hurricane Irma.  Citizens who find that the storm has left them with damaged trees that endanger their homes or others can simply send photos of the trees to TreePermits@alpharetta.ga.us and have the trees removed.  You can also send questions to that email address.
 
WATCH OUT FOR SCAMMERS
Scammers frequently target areas after storms; promising great deals or fast service on home repairs, tree removal, and other services.  It is so easy to get taken when all you want is to quickly put your home and life back in order.  We advise that you carefully select local contractors and do a little homework before making your selection.  (LEARN MOREhttp://clark.com/homes-real-estate/verify-your-contractors-on-these-sites-before/
 
MODIFIED TRASH COLLECTION SCHEDULE THIS WEEK
So that we can service all trash/recycling accounts following the suspension of services on Monday and Tuesday, our collection schedule for this week will be modified.  This will impact all residential accounts.  (LEARN MORE)
 
Trash Recycling Collection Schedule

The city of Alpharetta has ordinances which prohibit the blowing or dumping of leaves and yard clippings into roadways, storm drains or drainage ditches.

For those residents who utilize a landscape maintenance company, the city warns its citizens that they are ultimately responsible for any leaves or yard trimmings that company blows into streets or storm drains.

Yard waste disposal is included in every Alpharetta resident’s garbage and recycling collection account. So, residents are encouraged to collect and bag leaves and yard trimmings for pickup on your assigned trash and recycling service day. Alternatively, some residents may want to consider composting their yard waste for use as mulch in natural areas, the city added.

For additional information on properly handling your yard trimming and waste, contact the Alpharetta Department of Public Works at 678-297-6200.

Thanks to everyone who joined the fun for the Publix's Aprons Event. It was great fun!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Back to School event on 8/5/17.  We had several first time attendees to an event as well as a chance to welcome new homeowners in the Pines that came out.

Reminder:  Homeowners whose property backs up to the creek that flows behind the homes along Pine Vista are reminded to refrain from dumping anything (yard waste, etc.) into this creek. 

 

No trees or shrubs can be removed that are within 25 feet of the stream bed. This is a state law. 

 

The land around the creek is NOT common area – it is not the responsibility of the HOA. Each property owner whose property adjoins the creek is responsible for his/her portion of this land.

Pines Spring Fling Social 2017

Graduation 2017
We need to know the names of the graduating seniors so they can be recognized for their accomplishment. As we do annually, their names will be displayed on a banner at the main entrance prior to graduation. 
Please contact our social chair Andra Carlson at 770-402-1221 as soon as possible.

2/3/2017

 

There have been some questions/confusion regarding the covenant amendment currently out for voting on Leasing. Please fully read the amendment and if you have any questions or need any additional clarification please do not hesitate to contact the board. If you did not receive the information and ballot please contact the board so another one can be sent.

 

Please see the following message that was prepared by the HOA board to give additional information about the current proposed Amendment #4 that was recently sent to homeowners to consider and vote upon:
 

The SOLE purpose of this amendment is to maintain and increase the value of our homes and property here in The Pines. This is the stated purpose of the first 3 amendments which you as homeowners passed overwhelmingly. We now have 22 rental homes in The Pines. This amendment would set a maximum of 10 percent which is 13 homes. There is a “grandfather” clause which protects those homeowners who currently have their home rented. The amendment is not offered to prevent homeowners from renting their homes, but only to control the number of rental homes. The amendment provides for exceptions and protections for homeowners who may find it necessary to rent their home in the future.
The board is not trying to impose rules on the community. HOA rule changes have to be approved by 66 per cent of the homeowners. This is a “super” majority – not a simple majority. This is the simplest form of a democracy, with people voting to protect their own property without government involvement. There are no mandates or executive actions on the part of the HOA Board. The board is limited in its actions by corporate by-laws and the covenants –all of which are posted on our website.
The vote by the community at this time is 27 to 6 in favor of this amendment. The amendment is well designed and is very similar to those of the communities in our area. This amendment has been researched for several years. It has been prepared and approved and encouraged by our attorney who specializes in homeowners associations. The realtors who contact us about homes being sold in The Pines inevitably ask if we have controls on the number of homes currently being rented. This is a great concern to them and their clients who may be interested in buying a home in The Pines. Many, if not most, of communities in our area LIMIT or PROHIBIT rental property.
If there is enough interest within the community, we can have an informational meeting to talk about this amendment. We can arrange for our attorney to be at that meeting and answer questions about it. We have had similar meetings in the past, but the attendance has been historically LOW or non-existent. We must be sure enough homeowners will attend to schedule this. Show some interest – commit to attend the meeting –and we will proceed with it.
HOA Board

1/15/2017:  

Please note that there is a covenant amendment out for voting regarding Leasing.  Please read and mail in your vote.  By mailing your vote in it saves the HOA time and money in later having to process and mail out reminder requests to vote.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact a board member.

Thank you.
