Annual Dues and ACH Draft
This is a general reminder to all homeowners that the Berkshires Annual HOA assessments are due at this time. If you have already paid your 2020 HOA dues (billed on 08/01/20), you can disregard this reminder. If you are set up with our office on automatic ACH, we apologize for the delay in drafting your bank account. The ACH draft will be on November 10, 2020 for the $2,500 annual assessment.
If you are not sure if you paid 2020, have a current balance, or are set up via ACH with our office, you are welcome to reach out to email@example.com (not .com) and an office assistant can verify for you. You can also pay online through the web portal if you have set up a personal account with your HOA account number. All owners must be current on their HOA dues to vote during the Annual Meeting elections, as per the Berkshires governing documents. Please let us know how we can assist you to accomplish this.
Traffic gates will remain closed on Halloween except for owners/guests. The pedestrian gates will be held open for foot traffic of trick-or-treaters until 10 p.m. Please remember and be aware of the additional people in the neighborhood and keep cars and belongings locked.
Upcoming Annual Meeting - A notice via email and USPS was sent in regards to the upcoming Berkshires Annual Meeting. Please save the date and plan to join us via ZOOM on Thursday November 19th at 7:00 p.m.
To Join Zoom Meeting: online meeting and proceedings will be recorded for Board reference.
UTOPIA infrastructure is underway. They expect that this construction will take several weeks to get through all the streets/areas in the Berkshire community. This is for the main lines only. NO SERVICES are being provided to homes, as of yet or until they have everything installed. NO SERVICES are required by any homeowner to subscribe to the fiber services. This is NOT an HOA project, other than to grant permission on the roads and in the community to install the infrastructure. There is no cost to the HOA or homeowners for the install or upgrade of this modern product to the community.
Traditionally, the gates have been closed to outside vehicle traffic and the pedestrian gates are the only access into the community. In the past we have also employed a security guard to help at the gates to control any cars following an owner into the community. The safety of family and property is always a concern. However, the company that we usually contract with is short staffed and only servicing the communities that they provide regular monthly security services for. The one night a year (Halloween) of gate security may be a thing of the past.
lWith that being said, we propose that we keep with tradition and the gates remain closed on Halloween to only allow foot traffic of trick-or-treaters visiting our neighborhood. With no guard available at the gates, we would ask that you be mindful of keeping homes and property secure, watch for anything suspicious, and minimize tag along traffic through the gates as you come and go.
Those who do not feel comfortable with trick-or-treaters to their homes should place a sign on the front door indicating as such.
If you have suggestions or feedback, we welcome the conversation. You may reach the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
