For the coming year, we have three open positions on the Executive Committee. I am reaching out to see who might be interested in volunteering and witnessing how our neighborhood is run. The open positions on the Executive Committee are:
Landscape Committee Chair – The Landscape Committee Chair is a member of the Executive Committee and is expected to attend the monthly meeting of the Executive Committee, which generally meets the 1st Monday of every month from 7:00pm until 8:30 or 9pm. The general areas of responsibility include 1) Overseeing Common Grounds and managing the Landscape contract. In addition, the Chair will deal with dead/dying trees on the Common Grounds and solve issues that arise in the Commons areas. 2) Overseeing the Lake and Fountain. 3) Maintaining and improving the Playground equipment at the Lake and the Mini-parks.
Neighborhood Watch Chair – The Neighborhood Watch Chair is also a member of the Executive Committee and is expected to attend the same monthly meeting. The Neighborhood Watch Chair’s major responsibilities include 1) Overseeing our hired police officers. 2) Running the Neighborhood Watch program by keeping the schedule current and ensuring the safe delivery of the Neighborhood Watch bags.  Occasionally, soliciting for new volunteers to help with the Committee. 3) Dealing with security/vandalism issues and security cameras in the neighborhood.
Vice President – The Vice President is an officer of the Executive Committee who is expected to attend the monthly Executive Committee meeting. The major responsibilities are 1) Filling in for the President at Executive Committee meetings and/or Board of Director meetings in their absence. 2) Often, overseeing ad hoc committees. We currently have 3 ad hoc committees. The Vice President will get monthly updates on the committee progress and assist ad hoc committee chairs if they are running into any issues. 3) Becoming the President for the next year. The Vice President role creates an expectation of at least 2 years of service. The 1st year as Vice President and the 2nd year as the President.  As President, you have two meetings each month to attend – Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors meeting is generally held the 2nd Monday of the month.
If you are interested in serving in one of these capacities, please contact the HOA Office at .

We are blessed to live in a neighborhood with abundant wildlife and natural settings. Please be aware of animals sharing the roadways or common areas. For example, there is a wild turkey that lives over near Old Orchard Trail and a homeowner witnessed a car driving by throwing things at the turkey. Another homeowner came in the neighborhood at 5:30 on a Sunday afternoon and four deer ran out right in front of her car.

Watch out for the wildlife and be careful to protect them as this is their home too!

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.

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.
