HOA Annual Board Meeting
The Eagle Point Homeowners Association Annual Meeting will be Tuesday, January 9th at 7:30 PM at the Hampton Inn in Lee Branch. We will discuss the budget, vote for board members (if you have not mailed your card) and discuss many neighborhood issues. Also, a representative from North Shelby Fire, Cahaba Valley Fire and the Shelby County Sheriffs Office will be on hand to answer questions for residents. Hope to see you there!
AT&T is in the process of laying wire for the new homes in Griffin Park. The men are working hard but have a good distance to go. If you see them on Eagle Point Parkway, please be patient and understand it is really cold outside and they have a difficult job. They accidentally cut one of the phone wires on Eagle Point Parkway last week and tried to repair it quickly. Also, the workers are trying to work fast to get everything finished.
Dues are $275.00 and need to be received by the HOA office by Wednesday, January 31, 2018 by 5:00 PM.
Eagle Point Homeowners Association
Tuesday, January 9th, 2018
7:30PM Welcome and Opening Introduction Raymond Newton
Thanks to those residents who attended the 2018 Annual Meeting of The Eagle Point Homeowners Association. The HOA Board thanks Shelby County Sheriff John Samaniego and Cahaba Valley Fire Chief Jim Witherington and North Shelby Fire Chief Buddy Tyler for attending the meeting of our homeowners. We were fortunate to have a great representation from each department. All were very willing to answer questions and share what they do for and in Eagle Point.
Shelby County Sheriffs Office
Sheriff John Samaniego
Adam Mitchell Investigations
Deb Sumrall Community Outreach
Sergeant Owen Prescott
Lieutenant Jason Myrick
Samaniego took time out of his schedule to come speak
to the EPHOA and discuss the Sheriffs Office involvement in the community. He wanted residents to know that he and his
deputies are working hard for the people in Eagle Point. He introduced several of his deputies and
investigators and invited them to describe their daily activities and what they
see is positives and negatives in the community. Crime in EP is very low compared to other
communities in the area, but Eagle Point is not immune. We are reminded to be watchful and vigilant
in reporting things that seem odd or make us uncomfortable. Several questions were posed to the deputies
including, question about car decals so the deputies would know it was an EP
resident, what happens at night in Eagle Point, animals that deputies deal with
in Eagle Point coyotes, deer, and rabid racoon or etc. The Sheriffs department want residents to
call them if something seems slightly off whether it is suspicious cars, person
or animals. Deputies said to go with
your first instinct. Deb Sumrall is the community outreach deputy for the
Sheriffs Office. If you need anything
please feel free to call her at 205-670-6015. The question was raised about
parking on street during parties etc. and Sheriffs Office said to call them
and they would handle it. They want to
be involved and to do what they can to help.
North Shelby Fire
Chief Buddy Tyler
Cahaba Valley Fire

Chief Jim Witherington
Fire Marshall - John Yancey
Both Chiefs spoke about their support of the community and the wide variety of calls they receive on a regular basis. Seems like actual fires are low on their call list. They are called a lot of times when the Sheriffs Department cannot get to a resident. Chief Tyler talked about fire safety and the importance of having fireplaces inspected each year along with the importance of placing ashes in the correct receptacles and locations (Article will follow soon). Below are links to short videos that will make homeowners aware of the importance of having working smoke alarms along with a video that shows the proper location for installing smoke alarms.
Chief Witherington spoke about the need to clean, sweep and check chimneys once a year. Maintenance is very important due to settling of houses, cracks in the firebox and soot buildup, as well as regular use can sometimes cause damage to the fireplace and the chimney system. The Fire Department offers fire safety classes and will also perform house inspections to any homeowner who calls and schedules an appointment.

Speeders in Eagle Point
There are a few topics that are always on the minds and agenda of your HOA Board and speeding in the neighborhood is almost always at the top of that list. Your Board works with County Officials, Shelby County Sheriff along with Fire and EMS Services on a regular basis to combat speeding in Eagle Point. This is a topic that comes up almost every year at the Annual Meeting and when there is a motor vehicle accident in Eagle Point. Every time there is a group that demands speed bumps/humps or stop signs. Your Board addresses this with The County every time, and every time we are told no, not in Shelby County and given the reason why. Your Board needs your help in identifying alternate solutions to combat speeders in Eagle Point. We are not ever going to get speed bumps or other traffic control devices in the neighborhood.

We have had several complaints in the HOA office about neighborhood pets. Please make sure your pets are invited into your neighbors yard before letting them run through yards that are not their own! This is a friendly reminder to keep your animals on your own property and make sure these sweet pets do not run wild through the streets. Shelby County does have a leash law and unleashed pets are subject to be picked up by Animal Control (please do not allow animal control to lock up your pets!!) The HOA and neighbors understand if your pet accidentally gets out but those that continually allow their pets to roam into other residents yards is the issue. BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR watch your sweet pets and keep them on your property.
Today on the 119 side, there was an accidental break in a gas line during lunch time. Spire was called, and the gas line was repaired quickly. Please feel free to call the HOA office if you suspect something like this has occurred. Spire and the contractor were in contact with the EPHOA admin.
