ACES FROM THE COURTS - Jeff Ballard
Posted on Sep 1st, 2017
Fall seasons start Saturday, September 9th and we have eleven teams playing. Men’s teams play on Saturday mornings and Ladies’ teams play on Sunday afternoons. There are two Ladies’ teams that play on Thursday mornings and a 55 and over Ladies’ team that plays on Tuesday mornings and a 55 and over Men’s team that plays on Wednesday mornings. If your schedule allows, come out and join in the fun. 
 
Rosters for ALTA Winter 2018 will be open for submission starting in the middle of September and I think there will be a new Mixed team forming so that gives us four teams total. That gives everyone a chance to play if they want to join a team.

ANNUAL MEETING & PROXIES - J.D. Tucker
Posted on Sep 1st, 2017
We are approaching an exciting time of year in the neighborhood – the Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 7:30pm (Open House begins at 6:30pm) in the Clubhouse. This is your opportunity to hear about the year in review, participate in the election of two new Board members, and ask questions of Board members and HOA Officers. I hope you will be able to attend and participate in this important process.
 
If you are unable to attend the meeting, there is an alternate method of having your vote registered through a proxy. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a proxy is a document that allows a person to be authorized to act for another.

Entering Auto with Theft of Property on Smoke Rise Court
On Tuesday, July 18th, another Chimney Springs resident became a victim of an entering-auto crime with theft of property at their home on Smoke Rise Court. They described the loss of a Laptop, iPad, cell phone, and accessories.
 
Theft from an unlocked vehicle is among the most commonly reported crimes in Chimney Springs. As mentioned in previous articles, locking your vehicle doors and removing your bags, backpacks, and other valuables from your vehicle is the best way to thwart would-be thieves. This practice costs nothing, takes only a few extra seconds, and could prevent you from becoming another victim. Additional preventative steps would be parking inside your garage, adding overnight outdoor lighting, installing visible security cameras, and maintaining low-profile landscaping.
 
In the July PENS update, East Cobb Police Precinct 4 reported an increase in entering auto thefts. The majority of the victimized cars had been left unlocked. Please remember to lock your home and vehicle doors and close your garage doors at all times. Secure any bags, backpacks, purses, cases, out of sight in your trunk prior to arriving at the store, gym, or park. Thieves are known to watch these areas.

DO YOU HAVE AN OPINION?
 
I am sure there are many opinions and we would love to hear them all! Here are a few questions to prompt some thought and maybe get your wheels moving. We are looking to assess all aspects of our grounds. Please share your thoughts at landscape@chimneysprings.org.
  1. How do you think our entrances look? Can you identify how many and where we have them?
  2. What are your thoughts about our mini-parks?
  3. What could we do differently or better at the Main Playground?
  4. Do you walk the lake or paths of our subdivision? What works? What doesn’t?
  5. Is there something that you have always wanted to suggest but never have?
  6. Do you have some time you would like to share with our community?
Many hands make the load lighter for all. If you are interested in helping out or offering some insights, please let us know. These questions are just a start. If you have other topics or insights, please respond.
 
CAPITAL RESERVE STUDY - Liz Robin
Posted on Aug 31st, 2017
Chimney Springs is a beautiful neighborhood with some of the best amenities in East Cobb. However, it was developed around 1975 making it also one of the oldest neighborhoods in the area.
 
In order to continue to preserve the quality of life, the appearance, and high property values within our community, Chimney Springs must proactively plan for future capital improvement and maintenance projects. We can do this by allocating money each year from the annual budget to a special reserve fund. The amount to be funded (and utilized) over time will be determined by a Capital Reserve Study. To this end, the Board of Directors hired Ray’s Engineering to develop a comprehensive physical and financial analysis.
