Eagle Point Fall Festival / HOA Sponsored Event
On Saturday, October 31 bring your kids in costume for some early Halloween fun. Take photos, decorate a pumpkin, and bounce in one of the three interactive inflatables. Hot dogs with soft drinks and Halloween themed treats will be available. This is also a pets-on-a-leash (in costume) friendly event.
If you would like to have a booth to promote your business or craft, please contact the HOA office. Orders can be taken but no sales can be made at the festival.

We are sorry about the numerous duplicate requests for RSAS and EP newsletter subscription confirmations. We had some updates made to ephoa.org and it generated the emails.
The neighborhood has looked so good all summer long. We appreciate everyone taking such pride in their homes and in their yards. As fall is officially here please don’t get relaxed in yard maintenance. We know it is easy to get distracted by football and school and church activities but we need to continue to maintain our homes and keep the neighborhood looking its best. As the leaves begin to fall and we clear them from our yards remember that the storm drains are not designed or intended to be a leaf removal system. We certainly need them to function properly when we have a rainstorm.
Birmingham Botanical Gardens Fall Plant Sale Saturday, October 17 from 9am to 5pm and Sunday, October 18 from Noon to 4pm. Rain or Shine. Autumn is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.

New Construction in Eagle Point
There are several lots in Eagle Point that are being developed. Please contact the office if you see any construction going on near you so we can make sure we have all the proper paperwork on file. Don’t assume we know, please contact us as a way for us to double check our records.
Safety and Security
The HOA went through the neighborhood this summer and performed an audit on the safety/street lights. We had several of them repaired and we trimmed trees and shrubs that were obstructing the lights. If we missed one, please let us know. If you see a location that needs a light, please let us know. If we can add one, we will.
As an added security measure we encourage you to install motion and light sensors on your floodlights. This discourages unwanted visitors of all kinds.
If you see something suspicious, please call the Sheriff’s office at 205/669-4181 or call 911. Don’t be afraid to call. The Sheriff has asked for our help in monitoring our community.
Please review the rules of the road with your teenage drivers. We have young drivers pulling around a school bus as it stops to load/unload middle school students.
Solicitors are not welcome in Eagle Point. There are signs posted at all entrances to the neighborhood that clearly state No Soliciting. If someone knocks on your door or makes you uncomfortable, call the Sheriff. If you see vehicles in the neighborhood that are tossing ads in your yard, call the Sheriff. When you call please make sure you can give a description of the person or the vehicle. There are always deputies very close to Eagle Point and they respond quickly when called.
Something we can all do to help with the soliciting problem is to STOP supporting them. We receive a number of calls in the HOA office from homeowners complaining about the poor quality of work performed by the folks that toss clothes pins and cards in our yards or tape ads to our mailboxes. DON’T hire them. If they can’t make any money in Eagle Point they will move on to other communities.
If you would like to make a difference in the neighborhood and get to know more of your 700 neighbors, please consider volunteering for the HOA board or a committee. We need folks in several areas including Welcome, Hospitality, Architectural Review and Covenant Compliance. If you have some time and would like to help, please contact the HOA office.
