HPW Planning, Construction and Development Criteria
Hello Haile Plantation West neighbors,
As you may be aware, this past Wednesday the Architectural Review Board adopted the Association’s Planning, Construction and Development Criteria.  It was great to have residents attend the meeting and voice their opinions, thoughts, concerns, and ideas.  We had several owners attend just to listen and witness the ARB’s presentation while others chose to speak.
For the last several years, the ARB has been working to codify the various criteria, practices, rules, etc. that have been in place and used to determine the approvability of property improvements in Haile Plantation West throughout its growth.  This has been discussed at several Board of Director’s meetings over the past 2 years as well as on the Agenda for dozens ARB meetings.  This document represents the result of these efforts, including hundreds of hours, and is intended to serve as a single source for all owners to be able to find the necessary requirements prior to engaging in the architectural review process.  The adoption of this document gives the process a starting point – this is the initial document in which to build on in future years.   You may notice that it is mentioned several times within the Planning Criteria that ARB approval is still required before beginning work on any exterior changes. 
Wednesday’s noticed meeting provided an opportunity, in addition to the regular meetings noted above, to speak specifically to this manual.  Adding botanical names to the plant list was mentioned, as was providing further clarification to rules regarding open garage doors, and how that would be enforced.  Several more comments were voiced, including comments, unrelated to the drafted manual, requesting information on several common areas in need of replanting.  Topics also included pruning practices, general enforcement practices, ownership votes, reviving a regular print community newsletter noting friendly reminders instead of issuing violation letters, as well as many thanks for the dedication and countless hours of volunteering of the ARB members personally, on behalf of the community.  Because the Planning Criteria is to be a living, breathing document, updated regularly by the ARB, it was particularly good to learn some of the thoughts of residents, and to already have items for discussion for the document’s next round of changes.  In fact, the ARB has directed Management to solicit even more homeowner feedback for consideration in the next update to the manual.  As with all meetings, if an owner would like to share ideas, and is unable to attend, please always feel free to contact Management, as several owners did, and this would ensure your thoughts reach the Board.     
Please watch this website and future editions of your monthly newsletter for an email address to send ideas to – an address to be created specifically to track homeowner input to the Planning Criteria for consideration by the ARB.  In the meantime, please direct any comments you may have to ARB@mssgainesville.com.  All ideas and input will be passed along to the ARB for consideration.

Sinkhole Warning
With the recent storms, several sinkholes have opened up throughout the community. All reported sinkholes have been staked and taped off for your safety. It is imperative that you and members of your family, especially children, do not approach these sinkholes as they may remain active and could be dangerous.
If you or a neighbor find a sinkhole that has not been marked, please contact Management at 335-7848 to report it. Management will ensure it is marked off and reported to the county immediately for repair. For your own safety, do not approach any sinkhole and do not attempt to mark them off yourself.
Power Surge - Reset Irrigation Clocks
Keep in mind that power surges reset your irrigation clocks to factory default settings. These settings are not compliant with local county ordinances for watering days and times. Following a power surge, be sure to check and reset your irrigation timers to ensure you are not overwatering your lawn, resulting in fines from the county and excessive water bills.
