NEWS TO NOTE
Fall Leaf Collection
Your HOA dues fund a small budget to collect leaves that fall naturally on our community roads
and in the drainage ditches. This activity promotes road safety and keeps water flowing in the ditches.
This year's leaf collection activity is underway.
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.

Thank you to everyone for your help and concern!
The price of a clicker has increased to $35 due to increased clicker cost.
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.
The board has decided that there will no longer be an access code for realtors in the tele-entry system.
Each Seller is responsible for providing after hours gate access to realtors.
Sellers should give their listing realtor their 3-digit gate code to be used.
That gate code can be the seller's or a person you designate to handle that for you.
Realtors should provide this number to Showing Time so that all showing realtors
will know how to gain access.
The tele-entry system will now accommodate long distance numbers.
Should you wish to change your phone number in the system, please contact the HOA office.
Trespassing and Thefts in High Vista
Over the last several months, there have been at least 12 incidents in the Falls
involving personal property being taken from vehicles/property
as well as attempted break-ins on the mountain.
Police have been called in many of these cases, and there is not much they can do
other than to increase patrol...and that is what we need.
It is important that you report any attempted or achieved break-ins/thefts
to the Police as well as to the Homeowners' Office.
This is our best means of developing "neighborhood awareness".
Please take necessary precautions to prevent such thefts and make them less achievable.
Residents are encouraged to install motion-sensor activated exterior lighting.
A study found that offenders fled when they were suddenly illuminated by exterior lighting
because many thought the resident heard or saw them and turned on the lights
to see better and perhaps film them for identification.
Please lock your vehicles, secure your valuables and be aware!
"Neighborhood awareness" will help us protect ourselves and look out for each other.
Please see the work of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission
concerning black bears in residential areas:
See the pdf document on Coexisting with Bears.
It is believed that a bear committee would not identify additional measures beyond those covered
in the NCWRC literature. Accordingly, a proposal will be made to:
Coordinate with the POA and golf course management about bear-resistant
trash receptacles under their purview.
Amend the deer feeding policy to include other wild animals such as bear,
coyote and fox that also frequent the community.
The HOA Board has been notified of a potential safety issue.
A resident, while driving, recently made contact with a curbside mailbox and the mirror of his car.
The U.S. Postal service has published guidelines regarding, in part, the location of curbside mailboxes.
These guidelines may be found on line using this link: https://www.usps.com/manage/mailboxes.htm
All residents with curbside mailboxes are urged to inspect their mailboxes and insure that they are located between six and eight inches from the curb and also consistent with other parts of the guidelines.
In the absence of a curb the reference point would, we believe, be the paved edge of the road.
USPS STD-7B 3.12.1 …CUSTOMERS ARE REQUIRED TO CONTACT THE LOCAL POST OFFICE BEFORE INSTALLING THE MAILBOX TO ENSURE ITS CORRECT PLACEMENT AND HEIGHT AT THE STREET. GENERALLY, MAILBOXES ARE INSTALLED AT A HEIGHT OF 41 – 45 in. FROM THE ROAD SURFACE TO INSIDE FLOOR OF THE MAILBOX OR POINT OF MAIL ENTRY (LOCKED DESIGNS) AND ARE SET BACK 6 – 8 in. FROM FRONT FACE OF CURB OR ROAD EDGE TO THE MAILBOX DOOR.
If there are any questions, please contact the Horseshoe Postmaster at 891-7761.
Thank you in advance for addressing this safety issue.
The Board also reminds members that curbside mailboxes are required, by architectural guidelines,
to have the home address numbers affixed to the mailbox or the supporting structure in “…reflective material as recommended by Emergency Services and Sheriff’s Departments...”.
