Something spooky this way comes Pines residents!

 

 

            Annual Homeowners

             Association Meeting

 

          June 27, 2021   4 - 6 pm

          Ocee Park, Pavillion # 3

 

The board has seen the post and comments on the community FB page regarding the speed control devices in our neighborhood. Please be advised that the speed control devices in our streets are managed and maintained by the City of Alpharetta. However, we do have slight control in the number and placements of these speed control devices. We will add this topic to our scheduled annual HOA meeting.
We look forward to discussing this subject on that date and encourage everybody to attend and discuss this as well as the other recent concerns that have come up.

It's back......

Get ready Pines Residents! 

It's that time of year when thoughts turn to mowing, weeding, planting and the coveted Yard of the Month distinction, complete with the sign of honor. Fire up those lawnmowers.  You know you want it.

Congratulations

to the Schmidt family

for the start of yard of the month 2021!

Reminder:  May 3rd is the deadline to get your graduates names in for the Graduation Banner.

??HALLOWEEN SOCIAL!??

 

The HOA board has had lengthy and ongoing discussions regarding this year's Halloween event. We are still evaluating our options but the primary concern in the planning stage is to ensure we adhere to social distancing recommendations to keep everyone safe.

 

Needless to say, it will not be the usual outing so there won't be the typical games played at previous Halloween events. However, with our Summer Social on June 27th being such a huge success (thanks to all of you!) we are looking at our options to bring in another food truck.

 

There will definitely be prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in "The Pines Scariest Haunted House Contest" so start digging out those skeletons ? and any other creepy things ???lurking in your closets to proudly display in your front yard! We will also have awards for the best costumes possibly to be judged virtually by submitting pictures through e-mail and/or our Facebook/Nextdoor pages. This will depend largely on social distancing protocols in place on Halloween because it is much more fun to see our cute little neighborhood "monsters" in the flesh or the fur or the scales or the feathers or whatever!

  

This information is to give everyone a rough idea of what is being discussed and we'll share more as we finalize plans. If you have any ideas or recommendations, please feel free to send them by e-mail to thepineshoapresident@gmail.com.
Thank you in advance and we look forward to sharing more information as we finalize our plans.

 

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas..2019..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.

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.

     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.

            

 

December 2018 snowstorm in the Pines.

Hello Mr Snowman!

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

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.

Notice a street light out in the Pines?

Did you know you can also report street light outages online at www.sawnee.com 
Click on the outages button at the top of the page and then click the Report Outage button. 
Next click on Report Street Light Problem Tool. 

It helps if you have the number from off of the pole if there is an id number plate on the pole.

4/2017 Second Reminder:

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. Please help us to reduce or eliminate the expense of sending duplicate reminder mailouts.

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

Thank you.

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.
