JUNE NEWSLETTER IS HERE!

SPLASH FROM THE POOL
Posted on May 22nd, 2015
The Pool is open!  Warmer days are upon us and soon it will be hot and I bet you will want to jump into that refreshing water!  Please read on for a few important reminders.
 
For those of you who are avid readers of our newsletter, this may come across as repetitive but I need to remind everyone: You will need a working Card Key in order to be able to access the Pool.  As mentioned before, please see Karen  at the HOA Office if you need a Card Key. You need to know that will be denied access to the Pool by the Pool screener if you do not have a working Pool Card Key. This is not my rule, it is a policy and rule of our Homeowners Association and it is not new either. This is in place for our convenience given our Pool is a neighborhood amenity for the exclusive use of Chimney Springs residents in good standing.
 
Pool Hours for June are as follows:
               Monday – Friday            11:30am – 9:00pm
               Saturday & Sunday        10:00am – 9:00pm

A LITTLE CONSIDERATION, PLEASE!
Posted on May 21st, 2015
Let’s start by talking about your rights as a homeowner and Pool access.

As a homeowner, the Pool is available for you and your guests who are at the Pool with you. So note: Guests should not be at the Pool when you, the resident, are not present.
 
For the coming Pool season, we will be screening people as they enter the Pool area. We are doing this because we have had complaints about non-residents using the Pool and that the HOA should do something about this.

COMMON GROUNDS SUGGESTION SEARCH
Posted on May 21st, 2015

The purpose of the Common Grounds Project is to look at the Lake, Field, Playground, Tennis Courts, and Clubhouse area to help unify the different areas and enhance them. Committee members are Chairman Clint Farabaugh, Michele Bauer, Jay Crutchfield, Joe Garner, Don Roberts, and Liz Robin.
 
To date, the Committee has had three meetings. The first meeting consisted of a walk- through of the grounds to see first-hand what needs to be improved and what opportunities we may have for other upgrades and additions. All of the things which are being considered are too numerous to be named herein. Some examples, in no particular order or importance are: Enhancing the landscaping, repairs and upgrades to some of the Tennis Courts and adding additional seating; adding soccer goals, building a pavilion, adding additional playground equipment, adding new shaded equipment and seating and water fountain (drinking) in the Field and Playground areas; correct low spots, add benches, patio swings, fitness zones, and trash cans around the Lake, improve the parking lots, and add additional spaces
 
The Committee welcomes your input. One way to think about this is to look at what can be done to the Common areas to make you and your family spend more time there?  What do you consider to be the most important things that the HOA should do to make our Common Grounds more attractive, safer, more user friendly, and more appealing not only to you and your family, but also to future Chimney Springs homeowners?
 
We invite you to send your suggestions to the Committee at commongrounds@chimneysprings.org no later than Thursday, June 25, 2015. Please put “COMMON GROUNDS PROJECT” in the Subject line. We thank you in advance for your input.
 
FIVE-YEAR PLAN UPDATE
Posted on May 21st, 2015 Comments (0)
The 5-Year Plan is moving along very nicely and all the improvements to our community will be enjoyed by everyone. The lower level of the Clubhouse renovation is complete and ready for the summer Pool season. When you get a chance, stop by and take a look at our new renovation. The rest of the Pool renovation will begin as soon as the Pool closes for the 2015 season. These improvements will be ready for the 2016 Pool season. It will include work on the Pool deck, a new ADA ramp from the main gate, lighting, and many other improvements.

SIDEWALK SPLOST PROJECT
Posted on May 21st, 2015 Comments (0)
Would you like to see more sidewalks in Chimney Springs? Are you willing to do something simple to possibly make that happen?

The Chimney Springs HOA has recently learned from a CS resident on the Cobb County SPLOST Committee that our neighborhood is on the list to receive new sidewalk construction from 2016 SPLOST funds. Just being on the list does not guarantee that we will get new sidewalks but being a top priority does. To get moved to the top, it takes community support in the form of phone calls and emails. The money is going to be spent somewhere, so why not Chimney Springs?

THOUGHTS FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Posted on May 21st, 2015
    ….I pay my dues….
From time to time, I have residents tell me that they “…pay their dues…”  Generally, the homeowner feels the HOA should be doing something that they want done.  And their justification is “Well, I pay my dues….” I am not sure that people realize that it is another dues paying resident who is volunteering that is going to have to “get it done.”  I do not know if the average resident is aware of the importance of the volunteers in our community.

IN CONSIDERATION OF OTHERS
By Webmaster on September 12, 2013
Many of you may not be aware that Cobb County requires all dogs to be on a leash at ALL TIMES when out of the house or fence. In addition - in consideration of all Chimney Springs residents who enjoy the wonderful walking trails and lake path - please remember that someone will be walking behind you and your dog. Children play on the playground and grass field and in their yards. Please supply yourself with plastic bags to clean up after your dog anytime and anyplace you walk your dog. Also, DO NOT use the neighbor's trash can to deposit your pet waste. Be thoughtful of all your neighbors when walking your pets. Many thanks for everyone's assistance in this matter.
