note from Misti Steed, HOA Board member
afternoon, Eagle Point. I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow night
at 7:00 at The Hampton Inn for our annual HOA meeting. As the new year
begins, Id like to cover a few housekeeping items...
today, our management agency has fielded at least five complaints about street
parking and dogs barking. This is representative of the volume and
content of complaints that come in. Our covenants cover noise issues like
barking, so please be respectful of your neighbors when you leave your dog
outside; you may be accustomed to or even grow used to the sound of your dogs
barking, but your neighbors might not. While Im always a proponent of
residents addressing issues without our intervention, I realize that this kind
of thing can be sensitive.
number of folks, including myself, were bothered by the noise of fireworks on
New Years Eve. While the noise is technically covered by our covenants,
this is a particularly hard one to police - given that there are 700+ homes in
Eagle Point with five volunteer Board members who arent necessarily even home
at the time of the fireworks going off. We live in unincorporated Shelby
County, where fireworks are legal. Shelby County ordinance number 03-12-22-11
regarding noise in Shelby County can be found at this link: https://www.shelbyal.com/DocumentCenter/View/42/Noise-Ordinance?bidId= .
It does not specifically address the sound of fireworks, but section 3
can loosely be interpreted to cover fireworks. Id suggest talking to
your neighbor if you have a problem. If you feel so led, you can call the
Sheriffs Office to report, keeping in mind that its a non-emergency issue for
them. In the future, Ill be sending out reminders prior to Memorial Day,
Fourth of July, and New Years Eve to remind Eagle Point residents to use
courtesy when they use fireworks.
are becoming more frequent about folks parking on the street. We had an
intense period of enforcement, followed by a period of improvement in this
area. We will be communicating directly by mail with residents on a few
streets that seem to be bigger problems. I encourage you to comply with
our covenants requiring residents to park in their driveways. Our first
responders, our waste collectors, our postal carriers, and our school bus
drivers have all asked for our cooperation in this area.
Republic Waste Services has taken over the garbage collection for Eagle Point.
You shouldve gotten a bill in the last week or so. Please make
sure youve gotten a bill so that your service isnt interrupted. Also,
update your online banking to reflect the new payee information for Republic.
