BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR!
Posted on Feb 4th, 2016
Drivers, please be particularly vigilant with the increased pedestrian traffic, especially near the parks and parking lots. The posted speed is 25 mph throughout the neighborhood.
 
All dogs must be on a leash at ALL TIMES when out of the house or fence. In consideration of others, please clean up after your pet with a plastic bag. Do not leave the bagged pet waste on the curb, in the storm drains, or in your neighbor’s trash can. Remember someone will be walking behind you and your dog!
 
Don’t blow leaves from your yard into the street and leave them. Also, do not dump leaves in Common Areas around streams/ditches and in drains.

TENNIS WINTER SEASON
Posted on Feb 4th, 2016
When the cold and wet weather interfere with your play, you tend to get cranky. This is certainly understandable to those of us who are addicted to our sport. To protect our courts for the days when the sun shines and the temperatures rise, here are some rules and regulations to which we must adhere when we attempt to clear the courts of ice and snow.
  • Do not use any metal implements. These can and probably will damage the paint and asphalt surface of the courts. Use brooms and blowers to remove what you can. Then you have to wait for the sun to do the rest. Just because the ice or snow is removed, doesn’t mean the court is dry. Until it is dry, it will be slippery.
  • Do not use any chemicals to melt the ice. Most of them will damage the paint and asphalt.
  • Do not use heat guns to melt the ice. You’ll melt the asphalt as well. Not good!
  • Some players have tried using electric blankets. This method may work but it is a slow process and there is the possibility of electrocution. Water and electricity don’t mix. Using hot water to melt the ice or snow may work if the temperature of the ground is above freezing. Otherwise, you are just adding another layer to what is already there and you still have to wait for the sun to dry the water.
With most of the team players, it is very hard to be patient. You have other obligations, and trying to plan make-up matches is a maddening thing. We understand your pain. However, we prefer to have undamaged courts for our more typical sunny Southern climate when those days return. It takes longer to repair than to wait, and there is no such thing as instant gratification when you consider the work.

WILD ANIMAL SIGHTINGS
Posted on Feb 4th, 2016
The forest is alive with creatures and unfortunately a few are finding their way into our neighborhood. Due to the increased construction in the surrounding areas, coyotes and foxes have been seen in Chimney Springs. These animals are a threat to cats and small dogs. The coyotes sighted in the community have not backed away to a human presence. Please assume any wild animal could become aggressive with or without provocation.
 
Deer have been seen along the roadways especially near the Chimney area. Please drive with caution through the neighborhood. No one wins in a deer-vehicle collision!
 
WINTER ACC ISSUES
Posted on Feb 4th, 2016
With the leaves off our trees, the ACC is already seeing some problem areas and we will be advising homeowners of those problems. We would rather have the homeowners see the problem and submit a PAF rather than receiving a violation letter. Some of the problems we are observing:
  • Homes needing board replacement and painting;
  • Roofs needing to be cleaned and/or replaced;
  • Driveways needing repair and/or replacement (areas where water pipe replacement has already been finished only);
  • General landscape maintenance (shrubbery trimming, cleaning up fallen debris, etc.)
This is a good time of the year to walk your property to see what might be needed to keep your house and property in full compliance with the Covenants and Design Standards of Chimney Springs.

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.
