Hi Eagle Point!!
Eagle Point Proper and Griffin Park
o At no point has it been proposed or suggested that the HOA would be in anyway responsible for the pool in Griffin Park. From the beginning the pool is designed to be a separate entity from the HOA. There will be a pool board to administer and maintain the pool in Griffin Park just like the arrangement with EPHOA and EPST. There were several comments about the dues for Griffin Park being $1000 a year. The $1000 is a one-time amenity fee to completely pay for the pool so it starts out debt free. As a resident of Eagle Point you may choose to join the pool at Griffin Park just like you may choose to join the pool at Eagle Point Proper.
o There were several comments and questions about the dues increase. The dues are anticipated to increase TO $375 over the next 4 years, not increase BY $375.
o There is no planned increase to dues for fiscal year 2019.
o A dues increase will be used to maintain all the common areas, but more importantly it will be used to improve the aging landscaping and common areas in Eagle Point Proper. Several folks comment that as an established neighborhood our dues should go down, but as with anything 20 years old there is more maintenance now than when the community was fresh and new. Actually, combining the HOAs help Eagle Point Proper more in that there will be an increase in the amount of funds to maintain and improve Eagle Point Proper. Below is a list of improvement the board is considering with the additional money from a combined HOA
Landscaping upgrades at The Landing and The Crest as well as freshening at 119 entrance.
Landscaping along Eagle Point Parkway
Common area at the end of Talon Trace
Additional Radar speed signs
Maintenance to entrance monuments at The Landing and The Trace
o As many homeowners stated, the school system and supply and demand do more to increase property values than membership in an HOA. While Eagle Point was not designed for, and our road width cannot accommodate, sidewalks, proximity to Griffin Park and its characteristics is a plus for potential Eagle Point buyers. Given the choice between new construction at a much higher price point and a traditional brick home in an active, improving market, Eagle Point values should be looking up.
