Please pick up after your Pet

Pet waste in common areas is unsightly and unhealthy. Surely our residents and their children respect their neighbors and our neighborhood by picking up after their pets when walking them in common areas. If you see non-resident dog walkers who are not courteous enough to do the same, don't hesitate to let them know that they are not welcome here if they leave us their pet's waste when they go back home!

Trash Concierge Service

posted Feb 19, 2013, 5:06 PM by Hawkseye POA

If you leave early on Sunday or are away on Monday, and want help getting trash containers down to the curb and then back again after pick-up, (to avoid extended time at the curb), use our HPOA Trash Concierge Service. Here's how it works:
  • Under John Schneider's supervision, neighborhood kids will move your trash (and recycle) container(s) from outside your garage down to the curb Sunday evening and then after Monday morning pick-up, will bring them back up near your garage to a location you specify.
  • Contact John Schneider (jschneider@broadpointcg.com) to hire the service and discuss details
  • Service can be every week, or sporadically as you need it
  • The cost is $3 per week for "standard" service (up to two containers brought down and back)
  • Payment is direct to the young men doing the work (not the HPOA)
  • Parents of anyone interested in participating on the Trash Concierge Service Team should also contact John.

Blue Hen offers this service for $66/quarter but strongly discourages takers! We think this "local" concierge service is a terrific alternative which will avoid unsightly containers left at curbside for extended time, reduce the possibilities for critters to get into trash, and help keep our neighborhood beautiful.

Yard Waste PickUps

Blue Hen will make our four FREE yard waste pickups this year on:
April 14th
May 26st
August 18th, and
October 27th

Here is an excerpt from Blue Hen's Yard Waste Guidelines communication: 

"Effective January 1, 2011, Delaware Solid Waste Authority made changes regarding the collection of yard waste.  Yard waste may not be mixed with trash and must be collected separately.  The yard waste we collect is transported to Blue Hen Organics (BHO) where it is recycled under Department of Environmental Control, Beneficial Use Determination #30/040715.  Please go to bluehenorganics.com to learn more on the valuable service provided by BHO.  Based on recent regulatory and operational changes, BHO will no longer accept yard waste contained within plastic bags.

 

"Yard waste shall be defined as plant material coming from lawn maintenance and other gardening and landscaping activities including: grass leaves, prunings, shrubs, garden materials as well as branches, brush, and tree limbs up to two inches (2”) in diameter.  Yard waste must be contained in paper bags not to exceed the bag’s capacity or bundles not to exceed four (4’) feet in length and twenty five (25) pounds. 


"EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2014 – PAPER BAGS ONLY – NO EXCEPTIONS

"Acceptable bags may be purchased at the following local retailers:  Homedepot.com, item # 49022; Lowes.com, item #99344, and Acehardware.com.  We recommend you purchase them well in advance for spring clean up."

Unauthorized Parked Cars

posted Oct 15, 2009, 1:20 PM by Hawkseye POA   [ updated Mar 14, 2015, 1:07 PM ]

Frequently, vehicles owned by bikers or hikers using the State path (or other roads in Hawkseye) park in the pool parking lot(s), on our roads, on our grass/swales, regardless of the various “No Parking” signs posted throughout the development. We have received numerous requests from members to manage this situation, and prevent unauthorized parked cars, so to eliminate this practice as simply and efficiently as possible, without affecting vehicles owned by HPOA members or their family and guests, we have researched and created a towing program. Please know that we'd prefer never to tow a car, and will take an extremely conservative approach.

  1. 1. New signs have been posted throughout the neighborhood which warn unauthorized parkers that their vehicle will be towed at the owner’s cost.
  2. Four HPOA members (see below) are authorized to call the company with which we have contracted, to arrange for an unauthorized vehicle to be towed.
  3. An unlimited number of Parking Permits is available at no cost for all HPOA members. They can be picked up at any Board Member’s home, kept in your glove compartment, and put on your dashboard if you park at the pool or anywhere other than driveways. If you own a lot in Hawkseye but haven't built your home yet, please be sure to use a Resident Parking Permit when you visit!!
  4. You can print Visitor Parking Permits for guests to put on their dashboard if they park anywhere in the neighborhood other than driveways. Please be sure they don’t park on our swales, (they are our storm water management system) as damaged swales are costly to repair.

So, if you see a car without a Resident or Visitor Parking Permit on the dashboard parked on our roads, at the poolhouse, or anywhere else it doesn’t belong, contact


Steve Stanzione  201-401-0114,   Jeff Fry    302-827-4161,      Ray Glick   847-732-2988

These neighbors will do their best to insure that only those cars that don’t belong here will be towed.
