ACC & TREES
Posted on Dec 5th, 2016
Home Damage Caused by Falling Trees
In most cases, if a live tree would fall on your home caused by what is called an “act of God”- an event that no one has control over and that has no knowledge will happen, such is the case if the tree fell because of a heavy wind - your insurance company would cover the repairs to your home, if your policy has HO3 coverage. This coverage will usually cover damage caused by falling objects, trees included. What can be paid for would be the damage on the roof or any structure covered by your policy. The policy will also pay for the removal of the tree from the structure itself, but it may not pay to have the tree removed from your premises or cleaned up.

BURNING & WATER RESTRICTIONS
Posted on Dec 5th, 2016
Cobb County has instituted a temporary burning ban on outdoor burning of yard debris. This is in response to recent dry weather and drought conditions. Effective immediately, leaves, pine straw, and other yard debris may not be burned until the ban is lifted. The ban is expected to be lifted when significant rainfall is received.

CARD KEY SYSTEM
Posted on Dec 5th, 2016
We have had the same card key system in place for about 10 - 11 years. It has served us well and we will continue to use the same system. However, over the years cards have been lost or homeowners have moved so we need to take an inventory of all cards assigned in the system. We will eventually delete the cards not being used to make room for extra cards.
 
On Thursday, December 1, 2016, all cards will be moved to a disabled status and will remain there until you contact the HOA Office with the numbers on the cards you have in your possession. These cards will then be moved back to an active status. This means that beginning Thursday, December 1, 2016 your cards, needed for Pool and Tennis restroom access, will not work until you contact the HOA Office. You will have until Wednesday, November 1, 2017 to report your card numbers to the HOA Office. All cards left in the disabled status after Wednesday, November 1, 2017 will be permanently deleted from the system and new cards will have to be purchased.

HOLIDAY TIPS FROM NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH!
Posted on Dec 5th, 2016
The holiday shopping season is in full swing and unfortunately, we are again experiencing the related increase in property crimes and theft. Here are a few suggestions to help guard against becoming a victim.
  • Guard yourselves from car break-ins. One of the most common crimes, they hit us in any of the usual places we frequent. This includes the malls, shopping centers, daycares, parks, fitness clubs, you name it. This also includes your driveway!!! To decrease the likelihood of this happening to you, lock your car doors and do not leave valuables or items that appear to contain valuables in your vehicle. If you have to leave valuables in your vehicle, stop somewhere first and lock them in your trunk before you reach your destination. Out of sight, out of mind also applies to criminals!

LOOKING TO GET INVOLVED?
Posted on Dec 5th, 2016
The HOA is looking for volunteers for a couple of key positions. These positions do not take a great of time and may fit into a personal interest or skill set you have.
 
Are you interested in Cobb County matters? We are currently looking for a chair or co-chairs for the Community Action Committee. The responsibilities include monitoring and reporting to the Executive Committee on matters affecting the general welfare of the community including activities of the Cobb County Commission and the Zoning Board. You would also represent Chimney Springs’ membership in the East Cobb Civic Association. Please contact Roberto Fontanillas, Vice President at vicepresident@chimneysprings.org.
 
You may have seen Volunteer Appreciation signs in many of our resident's yards. The HOA is proud to honor the over 120 residents who volunteered for the HOA this year. If you have a sign in your yard, thank you for your service. If you want to get in on the action for next year, see the Volunteer form in the December newsletter. Again, thank you to all who serve to make Chimney Springs a great community!

FROM THE BOARD CHAIR - Don Potts
Posted on Dec 1st, 2016
It’s hard to believe that the year is almost over, the Holiday Season is upon us, and my tenure on the Board is ending. It has been my pleasure and honor to serve Chimney Springs over the past several years. As I reflect back on years of volunteering on the Executive Committee and Board, it is surprising that it’s totaled 14 years of the 16 years that I have live in Chimney Springs. I have seen many great improvements over this time, with even more to come. All these things would not be possible without the numerous volunteers and their countless hours of service and dedication. I believe that we are truly blessed to have one of Cobb County’s finest communities.
 
This past month, the Executive Committee and Board voted and approved a dues increase of $43 annually, which represents a 7.9% increase over 2016. This increase will go into effect January 1, 2017. The reason for the increase is the result of increasing costs over the last several years without an increase since 2007. Additionally, with the aging of the community and the recent Common Grounds Committee study, Chimney Springs will need additional funds for replacing and improving Common Areas in the near future.

NEWS FROM OUR PRESIDENT - Kevin Glass
Posted on Dec 1st, 2016
As we approach the end of 2016, it is a perfect time to reflect on the past year. This has been a good year for the Chimney Springs HOA. It has been a relatively quiet year with the emphasis on the completion of the Pool project. The focus in 2017 will be finalizing the Pool renovations and working on the Common Area improvements.  
 
The upkeep of the neighborhood and the amenities is due to the efforts of the 14 members of the Executive Committee and their committee members. I am personally thankful for all of their work this past year. The community is fortunate to have most of the current Executive Committee members returning for the coming year.  
 
I would like to thank the following people who are stepping down for their service: Annette & Doug Davis (Community Action), Pam Lydon (Neighborhood Events), and Vicki Robinson (Tennis).
