NEWS TO NOTE

There was a meeting at the WNC Agricultural center Tuesday afternoon, July 14th,
where Duke Energy supplied information about a new transmission line to be installed from
the Asheville Power plant to a substation at Campobello, SC.

One of the potential routes of this line could be across our South gate
and through our Main gate area as well.
See attached map.
Transmission line is shown in yellow and the Duke right-of-way is shown in orange.

Input is being sought by Duke Energy from those who might be affected.

Here is the information handed out and viewed at their public meeting.

In the interest of having all of our Homeowner members informed about the
3 presentations made by the High Vista Finance Team,
please take a look at the following four links that recap what occurred. 

This posting does not indicate the High Vista Board of Directors position on this issue and
is being done for informational purposes only.

Should you have questions please contact either Susan Semrod or Linda Thomas on the HVF Team.

Please see the work of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission
concerning black bears in residential areas:
http://www.ncwildlife.org/Learning/Species/Mammals/BlackBear/BearsinResidentialAreas.aspx

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 price of a clicker has increased to $35 due to increased clicker cost.


Our Office Manager resigned her position effective June 10, 2015.

The Board is working to maintain operations while we search for a replacement.

Thanks for your understanding during this transition when
office hours are reduced to 10am to 2pm.


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...”.
