ACC AND YOU! Carolyn Cordaro
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2018
Here are a few reminders for homeowners who are planning on painting their homes this year.
 
  1. A Plan Approval Form (PAF) must be submitted to the HOA Office even if the intent is to duplicate the existing colors.
  2. Color chips must be submitted for all proposed colors.
  3. Paint should be a matte or semi-gloss finish.
  4. A maximum of three colors may be used on any one home: One for siding, one for window trim, and one for shutters/front door.
  5. On contemporary homes, trim around windows and doors may be a slightly lighter or darker shade of the body color. Garage door trim should match the garage door color.
  6. Garage doors and trim on homes with all brick or stone façade, and are front facing, should match the window trim. All other garage doors and trim should be painted to match the color of the siding.
  7. Gutters and downspouts should closely match the color of the background material.  
The ACC strongly suggests that owners purchase the small sample containers for the paint they think they want. Then, paint this sample on both a shady side and a sunny side of the home to see how it will truly look. Often, the color chips are not as true in natural light. After doing this step, if you are not sure of your selection, please contact the ACC and one of the members will be happy to come meet with you.  
 
ACC looks forward to working with you.
ACES FROM THE COURTS - Jeff Ballard
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2018
Spring ALTA season started Tuesday, March 13 and we have nine Chimney Springs teams. If the spring weather proves to be as crazy as this past winter was, we can expect a lot of rescheduling and making up matches during the week. This can sometimes cause scheduling nightmares as residents are vying for the same courts.

At this time, only cards that were updated last year will be operational when the Pool opens. If you want to enter the Pool, you MUST have your card (or all cards) activated.

LOOK WHO'S OUR NEW TREASURER!
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2018
Hello Neighbors! My name is Lauren Carey and I am excited to be the new Treasurer for our awesome community here in Chimney Springs! My husband, Matt, and our 2 year old daughter, Lienna, moved here in December 2016 and have been loving every minute. We had never even heard of Chimney Springs or knew much about “contemporaries” but our realtor knew we were looking for top school districts and where our daughter would have an opportunity to make a lot of friends. So, despite the house projects, we decided to jump in and couldn’t be happier. The beautiful setting, amenities, events, fun people, and tons of kids makes this such a wonderful place to live.

DROUGHT LEVEL 1 LIFTED!
By on April 2, 2018
On Thursday, March 8, 2018, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division lifted the Level 1 drought declaration for 12 counties in North Georgia, including Cobb County. The entire state is now in non-drought status. Winter rains have refilled Lake Lanier. The permanent outdoor watering rules for non-drought are: Outdoor irrigation is permitted daily before 10:00am and after 4:00pm. Irrigation is still prohibited between 10:00am and 4:00pm. There are no restrictions on other outdoor uses: car washing, pressure washing, etc.

The harsh, cold winter can cause irrigation system piping to crack and split. Before starting your system this spring, please have an irrigation professional check your system for leaks. An irrigation system leak can consume a large volume of water. For information on irrigation systems and outdoor water efficiency visit https://cobbcounty.org/watersystem+program.

Using water efficiently is always important and we encourage Cobb citizens to take advantage of our water efficiency initiatives.
WILD ANIMAL SIGHTINGS
By on March 28, 2018
The forest is alive with creatures and unfortunately a few are finding their way into our neighborhood. Due to increased construction in the surrounding area, coyotes and foxes have been seen in Chimney Springs. These animals are a threat to cats and small dogs. Please assume any wild animal could become aggressive with or without provocation.

LEAF BURNING ALLOWED OCTOBER 1 - APRIL 30
By Webmaster on October 4, 2016
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.
