CLUBHOUSE WILL BE A REAL HOTSPOT!
Posted on Dec 1st, 2014
By the beginning of 2015, the Clubhouse area will become a real hotspot. A Wi-Fi hotspot that is! An Ad-hoc committee has been researching service and costs for different communications packages for the main common area of our neighborhood. The services encompass telephone, television, and Internet, including a Wi-Fi hotspot, including the Clubhouse, Pool area, and at least the main Tennis pavilion.
 
The high speed internet hotspot will allow music streaming during Clubhouse rentals, making tennis court reservations on ReserveMyCourt.com, checking emails, and other approved uses by adult residents. We were able to cut costs while providing an enhanced amenity. Watch for user details in January.

NEWS FROM THE ACC
Posted on Dec 1st, 2014
The last couple of months have been a busy time for the ACC. Thank you for all those who have taken action to resolve your violations. The ACC team has made some minor changes to the Design Standards in order to update the verbiage. You can view the revised document on the website or pick up a copy in the HOA Office. Please contact us with any questions at acc@chimneysprings.org .
 
Please remember that Chimney Springs is a covenant protected neighborhood and that before doing an exterior changes to your home or property, you must submit a Plan Approval Form and wait for its approval from ACC. This includes replacing driveways and painting homes even if they are being redone exactly as they were. All trees must be approved as well, even if they are dead or dying. Plan Approval Forms can be found on the website under Documents/Forms or at the HOA Office.
 
NEWS FROM THE BOARD
Posted on Dec 1st, 2014
As we approach the end of the year, we have a couple of projects that will be moving into 2015 with us.

Dredging the Silt Pond
A question was asked at the Annual Meeting about where we stand on the dredging of the Silt Pond. The HOA is currently in the process of getting bids to get the work done. Once we have reviewed the bids and picked a vendor, we will be able to schedule the work. It is hard to say when the dredging can occur. The most aggressive time frame would be before year end. A more realistic timeframe will be in the first quarter of 2015, most likely January or February.

Bushes along Bishop Lake Road

It has come to our attention that Chimney Springs has homes along Bishop Lake Road that have bushes on their property that have grown significantly and are now in the power/utility lines.  A couple of residents have asked the HOA to trim them. The HOA has reviewed several of the properties and believe that the bushes are on the private property of the individual homeowners and as a result are the responsibility of the homeowner.  A few people have indicated that the bushes may have been planted by Arvida years ago when the subdivision was developed. That does not make them the HOA’s responsibility to maintain. Chimney Springs HOA is responsible for the common grounds of the community and we work very hard to maintain those grounds.  Private property or road right of way are not HOA grounds to maintain.If you are a homeowner in the situation that we describe, we ask that you keep your bushes neat and clean. You are welcome to ask if the utility companies will consider trimming the bushes.  Just realize that at best, they will get them out of the lines. They will probably not be concerned with the appearance of the final bushes.

So look for the work in the coming months and know that the HOA is constantly trying to manage the many needs of our community. Please feel free to contact Don Potts, Board Chair, at boardchair@chimneysprings.org.

LEAF BURNING ALLOWED OCTOBER 1 - APRIL 30
By webmaster on October 8, 2013
Open burning is allowed October 1–April 30 of each year. During this time, you may burn limited yard debris (leaves, pine straw, and small limbs no more than 2” in diameter from growth on your property). The following restrictions for burning also apply:
• Burning is allowed between the hours of 10:00am. and one hour before sunset (no smoldering or hot coals remaining).
• No burning is allowed on windy days (10 mph or higher) or on days when the atmospheric conditions (cloudy, overcast, or raining) would cause the smoke to remain low to the ground.
• Burning must be attended by an adult who must be watching the fire at all times. Never leave a fire unattended.
• A water hose must be on hand that can reach the fire, and can be ready to use if needed.
• Fires must be at least 50 feet from all structures, including fences of combustible material.
• Fires may not be started with petroleum-based products.
You may not burn refuse or other combustibles, such as garbage of any kind, construction material, plastic products, fiberglass, tree trunks, stumps, kudzu vines, or corn stalks. Any material that is moved from one location to a different property cannot be burned. Burning for recycling wires (to access metal) or tires (to access wheels) is not allowed. For information regarding alternative methods to dispose of yard waste, contact the Georgia Environmental Protection Division at 404-362-2537.
Please understand that even if you follow all of the guidelines for burning, you may be required to extinguish the fire if it adversely interferes with another’s enjoyment of life, use of property, or if someone with a health problem is affected.
NOTE: During the burning period, a fire official may prohibit burning at times when atmospheric conditions or local circumstances make burning hazardous.

 
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.
