Entry Procedure for Listing Realtors



NEWS TO NOTE


Voting has begun on whether to accept the proposed changes to the HOA Bylaws
approved by the High Vista HOA Board on October 25, 2016.


Voting takes place via mailed ballots, electronically online or at the meeting.
Those voting online received an email with the proposed bylaws and the link to cast a vote.
Votes have been mailed to those without an email address on file.

Explanatory letter and proposed Bylaws with changes

There will be a meeting to address the changes to the bylaws on
Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at 7:00 pm
in the Laurel Room of the Amenities Association.

This meeting will offer you the opportunity to have all of your questions answered prior to voting.

It will take 50% of our lot owners to pass these changes so we really need everyone to vote.

Mailed and electronic voting ends on December 5, 2016 at midnight and results will be announced
at the December 6th Board Meeting.

We ask that everyone vote in order to assure that the wishes of the entire community
are reflected in the vote outcome.



A Burn Ban is in effect for many counties in North Carolina including Henderson and Buncombe.

Dry leaves will ignite very quickly with just a spark or hot ember.
Please adhere to this restriction which includes Fire Pits (see Fire Pit Policy).

Ditch Leaf Removal has begun.
Please be cautious and courteous around the crews working on this project.

Safety Concerns: Several gate barrier arms have been broken recently.
Please do not tail-gate through the gates, and also be aware of individuals at the call boxes
who may have gained entrance at the same time a clicker was used.

Speeding and running stop signs is on the rise in our community.
Please slow down and obey stop signs to keep us all safe.

GATE ENTRY

When entering the gates with your clicker,
please be aware of visitors situated at the gate entry call boxes.
There have been some close calls with the visitor pulling away from the call box to enter while a property owner is turning in from the highway at the same time. This could cause a fender bender incident.

Problems also occur when the property owner has pushed the entry access button on their phone to open the gate arm for their visitor to enter. If another property owner then enters before that visitor does, the gate arm comes back down and will not allow the visitor to enter.
The visitor has to go back to the call box and start the process all over.

It would be a good idea if property owners ask their visitor if anyone is in front of them at the gate or approaching the gate before pressing the access button on their phone to insure a smoother entry for their guest.

Please give visitors an opportunity to enter first before you when possible. Thank you!

The price of a clicker is $35.
If your clicker stops working or works only sporadically,
you can go to Batteries+Bulbs in the Ingles Shopping Center
on Hendersonville Road across from Earth Fare.
They will check the battery for you and replace it if necessary. 
There is no charge for the service only the battery...much cheaper than a new clicker.

Gate codes work with long distance numbers, so if you want to change your
gate contact phone number, please contact the office.


A presentation was made at the HOA Board meeting Tuesday, June 28th,
by Michael Everhart and Andy Gleydura.


They assured everybody that this presentation was their effort and had received no input
or consultation from either the HOA Board or High Vista Finance.

This presentation attempts to bring the community together by acknowledging the
different needs that exist within the two major segments of the community, the Estates and the Falls.

Furthermore, it proposes that our dues need to be increased and that these two distinct areas
of the community should be allowed to direct their dues towards those areas
that are most important to them, roads in the Estates and green space in the Falls.

The presentation relies on the creation of several committees to be overseen by the HOA Board.

The majority of those attending the meeting seemed to support the concept of the presentation,
therefore the Board agreed that this presentation is worth investigating.

This presentation may be found in the Members Only section.

In the coming days, the number of committees and each of their scopes will be identified.
Shortly after that, volunteers will be solicited with the intent of being able to provide
at least some sort of update by the next Board meeting.



For a list of our Board Members and their positions/responsibilites and email addresses,
please go to the Board and Staff page.



On April 12, 2016 a presentation was made to the Board and the community
to help explain Easements, Rights of Way, Drainage and Utility Easements,
and Drainage Maintenance Responsibilities.


Click here to see a PDF of the presentation.


Newly Revised Architectural Guidelines and Appendices

have been posted to the Documents Page for your review.

Current HVHOA Policies can be found on the Members Only Page.


Your Responsibility

The drainage ditches lie in easements recorded on our individual lots. High Vista HOA Covenant #18
prohibits placing materials in these easements, and also requires that the easement areas
be maintained by the lot owner. Accordingly, lot owners are expected to collect and dispose of leaves
and other yard debris from their private property at their expense.
The HOA does not provide this service.

Please do not blow, rake, or otherwise deposit leaves from your property onto the roads or into the ditches.
