Hi Eagle Point!
The Eagle Point HOA meeting has been moved to Monday, June 18th from 6PM-7PM. The location is still to be determined. The Hampton Inn has always been generous allowing us to use their facility but was unable to schedule us on this date. Please make note of the change and do not show up on June 11th or June 18 at The Hampton Inn. There will be another discussion about street parking.
Eagle Point Clean up Dumpster
Get ready for the weekend of June 22-24. The HOA has rented a huge WASTEPRO dumpster for all residents. So get ready to clean out your closets, basements and garages of any items that need to be thrown away. Look outside your house at bushes, tree limbs, junk or anything you might want to take to the dump. The DUMPSTER will be located in the cul de sac of the office park by the Eagle Point Homeowners Office at 4000 Eagle Point Corporate Drive. Come on Eagle Point lets see if we can fill this dumpster up!!!
Please note that if you have been putting debris or trash of any kind by the road at your residence, that you cannot put it by the street until it is scheduled to be picked up that day. There is nothing pretty about huge green bags, mounds of tree limbs or black bags filled with trash or lawn debris. Please do not set trash by the road until the day it is scheduled for pick up.
Enjoy your weekend and keep yourself refreshed in this HOT weather!!
Happy Friday Eagle Point!

Hi EAGLE POINT!!!
Because the neighborhood survey results indicated that street parking was the
top concern to be addressed, it was the main topic of the night. The
general consensus is that wed like to address street parking issues before a
tragedy occurs - like a child being hit because they jutted out from behind a
parked car; or a house fire out of control because fire trucks cannot get
through; or even a death because first responders cannot get to their
destination quickly enough. We had representatives from Shelby County
Schools transposition department, from Waste Pro, from North Shelby Fire
District, and from Cahaba Valley Fire District. Each group represented
shared how the high volume of street parking in Eagle Point affects the
services they provide to Eagle Point.
Our first responder services can be delayed by cars parked on the street.
As a matter of fact, federal fire code mandates certain clearances on the
street for fire trucks to pass. Many of the parked cars in Eagle Point
violate this code. While fire department officials cannot issue citations
for parking, law enforcement can. Even one car parked in a cul-de-sac
impedes a fire trucks maneuvering capabilities.
Waste Pro drivers are slowed down greatly trying to navigate our streets when parked cars make for narrow passage. Drivers efficiency is hindered by cars parked near garbage cans which necessitates the driver getting out of the truck to empty the cans.
School buses cannot navigate narrow passes or curves where parked cars leave a blind spot. There are so many cars parked in some cul-de-sacs that buses cant pick up children near their homes; this means some children are walking much farther than they should have to walk to their bus stop. When bus drivers are trying to watch the road and maintain a safe environment with as many as 60-70 children on a bus, parked cars create a dangerous distraction for the driver.
Besides the safety and service issues mentioned above, street parking
inconveniences your neighbors in many cases. Being considerate of your
neighbors would go a long way towards solving this problem!
The action items from the gathering are:
1) Your HOA Board is going to work with the fire departments and the school transportation departments to identify dangerous curves and hills that could possibly be designated No Parking zones.
2) The HOA Board will be working with our management company to begin communication about enforcing long term street parking as covenant violations, subject to fines and other remedies, just as are any other violations.
The HOA Board encourages residents to communicate with your neighbors
personally or to post timing details on social media when youre having an
event where there will be cars parked on the street. You can even call
the HOA office at 205-314-5793 (or email email@example.com)
with the details of your event, and the administrative assistant can share on
social media for you. (This also lets the HOA Board know about event so you
dont get a violation.) If you live in a place with high traffic volume,
ask your guests to park on one side of the street, or even have them park in a
remote location and carpool back to your house to reduce the number of cars.
Again, the Board thanks everyone who came to the meeting and looks forward to our community working together to solve issues like this one!
Afternoon Eagle Point!!!
Tomorrow afternoon, your HOA is having WastePro deliver TWO dumpsters to the cul-de-sac by the Eagle Point Office Park!!
Take this opportunity to clean out, but please act respectfully this week. When WastePro folks are taken aback at how Eagle Point disregarded the guidelines for disposing of things, thats pretty embarrassing.
We incurred extra fees last week because WastePro had to bring an additional truck to empty the OVERLOADED dumpster and because their employee had to get out and sweep up the trash placed outside the dumpster (including a lot of broken glass from mirrors). If this week is a repeat of last week, the HOA Board will have to re-evaluate whether this amenity will be offered again.
These things should go without saying, but if the dumpsters are full...
DO NOT put anything else on top;
DO NOT use the businesses private dumpsters;
DO NOT use any of the dumpsters in Griffin Park;
DO NOT place your discards outside the dumpster or in the grass around the private offices.
Should you see any activity like that, please get the tag number and contact the HOA office at 205-314-5793. You can leave a message anonymously with the information if youd like. That would help us recoup money if we end up with additional fees again.
Good afternoon, Eagle Point!
On Fourth of July, Eagle Point Swim and Tennis graciously invites resident non-members to take part in their festivities! After 12:00, non-members can come enjoy the pool, activities, food, and fireworks show.
Have a safe and happy weekend!
