Welcome High Vista Residents/Owners and Other Visitors!
The Board would like to remind all residents of High Vista
to please observe the community's policy of No Feeding Deer.
This policy, passed on August 22, 2013, can be found on the
Documents & Policies page and it is posted below as a reminder:
Policy NO. 1301
Subject: NO FEEDING DEER POLICY:
Over the past decade, High Vista has experienced a definite increase in the deer population
within the Community. Unfortunately, along with the increase in deer population, there has also been an increase in their feeding on trees, foliage and flowers throughout the subdivision. Use of deer resistant plants, electric fencing and netting only reduces the damage in a very limited area.
While there are differing opinions as to how to address this situation, experts agree that feeding of deer is harmful to the deer population. Fed deer become increasingly tame and are more likely to tolerate human activity. This increases the likelihood of deer/human interactions and conflicts such as personal injury, damage to personal property and motor vehicle collisions. Feeding deer does not prevent deer damage problems. Concentrating deer at feeding stations increases the prospects for disease transmission and can make deer more vulnerable to predation by dogs or coyotes. Deer may become increasingly dependent on supplemental food and lose the wild character that is part of their allure to many people. Fed deer return repeatedly to the same source for food, resulting in a tendency to negatively affect all properties in areas which are frequented by abnormally high concentrations of deer.
It is the opinion of the HOA Board that the first step in dealing with the deer situation is to stop the practice of artificially feeding the deer within the subdivision.
Feeding of deer or any means of encouraging deer to your property (e.g. salt licks) will not be allowed within the confines of the High Vista Subdivision.
Any owner in violation of this Policy is subject to fining per the North Carolina Planned
Community Act which states that—
“Unless a specific procedure for the imposition of fines or suspension of planned community privileges or services is provided for in the declaration, a hearing shall be held before the executive board…to determine if any lot owner should be fined…pursuant to the powers granted to the association in G.S. 47F-3-102(11) and (12). The lot owner charged shall be given notice of the charge, opportunity to be heard and to present evidence, and notice of the decision. If it is decided that a fine should be imposed, a fine not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100.00) may be imposed for the violation and without further hearing, for each day more than five days after the decision that the violation occurs. Such fines shall be assessments secured by liens under G.S. 47F-3-116.”
