Important News and Information


pool/activity bands available Saturday, May 28

posted May 27, 2011, 1:03 PM by Middleton HOA   [ updated May 27, 2011, 1:17 PM ]

We will be passing out pool/activity bands to members in good standing this Saturday from 10:00am.  We distributed to 42 member households last Saturday. New members that need pool access cards can pick them up at that time as well.

Please help us make this summer safe and pleasant at the pool.  Follow the pool rules.  They are for your safety.

  • Do not bring any glass into the pool area.  Broken glass is very dangerous. It can not be tolerated in the pool, on the pool apron or in the pool cabana.
  • No Smoking in the pool area.  
  • Please put your trash in the receptacles.
  • Lower the umbrellas when you leave the pool.
  • Anyone under 14 years old needs to have adult supervision.

These are not the only rules but they are the ones that we are having trouble with already. Be a good neighbor. Respect the neighborhood property.


Pool Access Cards:  These cards are needed to access the pool.  They are coded swipe card for the reader at the front gate.  There is a $25 deposit required for the card and one card per household.  The $25 deposit will be returned when the card is returned to the HOA.  If you move or no longer want to use the  pool, you could return the card and get your deposit back.   Checks should be made out to the Middleton HOA.

Activity Bands: 
These colorful bands are meant to identify HOA members and their guests.  We want you to wear them when you are using the HOA facilities; pool or tennis courts.  Anyone not wearing the activity band may be asked for their band or asked to go and get it.  These ID bands are necessary because people routinely try to use our facilities and are not helping to keep them up  

A member of the HOA board will be at the pool to distribute these items to you.

Swimming Lessons: 
Sarah Maier has arranged for swimming lessons to be provided this summer at our pool.  Marcia Humphrey will be the instructor and she has lessons the weeks of May 30 and June 6th.  If you want to sign up for lessons, contact Sarah at smaier4@bellsouth.net.  Marcia will open additional weeks if there is enough demand.

1. “Delinquent” is defined as any Middleton homeowner’s account with an outstanding balance > $0.

2. Access to all amenity areas (pool, tennis courts, etc.) and participation in HOA-sponsored community activities will automatically be revoked for any delinquent homeowners.

3. Access to all amenity areas and participation in HOA-sponsored community activities will automatically be restored once the delinquent balance is paid in full. Delinquent balance includes any association dues, late fees, attorney fees and court costs.

lock your car doors

Information forwarded from the City of Grayson. Please take the necessary and suggested precautions.

We've had a report of "flippers" again. Flippers go around and "flip" the handle of car doors to see if the car is locked and when they find an unlocked car they steal stuff out of the car.  Please notify your HOA so they can warn the residents of your subdivisions.  We have notified Plaza Security.  The chances of these kids being seen while doing this are slim to none so everyone needs to keep their cars locked and do not leave any valuables in your car.

Your assistance is needed...

Neighbors,

Your Middleton Home Owner's Association Board held their monthly meeting last night, Monday, March 21, 2011. In a continuing effort to address concerns many of us have, we ask for your help with the following:
  • Graduation Banner - it’s that time of year again! Please submit your graduate’s name and the school they are graduating from to middletonhoa@gmail.com
  • Parking on the street - for the safety of the many children that live and play in Middleton, and the ease of visibility for those driving, please refrain from parking on the street. We understand there may be the occasional party or special event that may necessitate parking on the street, but in accordance with our covenants (Article 7.4) there should be no routine on-street parking.
  • Spring is in the air, so be sure to spruce up your flower beds, mulch, shrubs, etc. by doing routine yard maintenance and keeping your lawn mowed and sidewalks and driveways edged. (Article 5.2)
  • Mailboxes - many have asked about new mailboxes and/or replacement parts and numbers for existing mailboxes (Article 7.24). These should match the original postal receptacle in place at the time of construction. That information may be found on our website, www.middletonhoa.org (see the home page or Frequently Asked Questions).
  • Any changes to the appearance of our homes, including exterior paint, shutters, shingles, or landscaping requires approval of the Architectural Committee (Article 6.1). The appropriate forms are available for download at www.middletonhoa.org (see Frequently Asked Questions).
  • Remember that your annual dues were due on Jan 1st. If you have not yet paid, please make an effort to do so as soon as possible, so that you and your family members and guests will be able to utilize the community amenities (Article 11.3), including tennis courts, playgrounds, and the pool (which is scheduled to open on May 20th).

Thanks for your attention to the above items and for joining with your neighbors to insure that Middleton is one of the premiere communities of Grayson for many years to come!

Sincerely,
Your Middleton Home Owner’s Association Board

Pavilion Work Day

posted Aug 28, 2009, 6:46 AM by Middleton HOA   [ updated Aug 28, 2009, 11:45 AM ]

Good Friday Morning! A wet one for sure. 

As most of you can see, the pavilion is nearing completion. A couple of neighborhood volunteers led by Bill Potter have done a fabulous job constructing this for all of us. When complete, it will be a terrific place for gatherings.

What do we have left to do?
  • a few pieces of trim still needs to be cut and installed
  • The entire structure needs to be prepped for paint and stain
    • Caulking
    • Filling
    • Sanding
  • A coat of primer needs to be applied to all surfaces to be painted
  • Painting
  • Staining the deck
  • Some clearing and cleaning of the wooded area directly behind the pavilion (to be done after the pavilion is complete)
  • Clean-up
For two people this would take several weekends, but if we could get some help we could have most of it done in a day or two.

So were asking the neighborhood for some help. If you have a caulk gun, a ladder, or a paint brush, and some time, it would be great if you could come by and give us a hand!

We will be there at 9:00am tomorrow morning (Saturday 8-29). Come on down, I will bring some Donuts! (mmmm Donuts!, you know you want one)

Have a great day,
Tom

Parking in the Street

posted Aug 26, 2009, 11:32 AM by Middleton HOA

Over the last few months there have been a number of concerns brought forth to the board in regards to cars being parked on the streets, especially overnight. This is presenting safety issues in our community, especially now that school is back in session. There also have been cars parked at stop signs and at the corners of several intersections causing unsafe conditions.
 
Homeowners are asked to follow the outlined covenant found in Section 7.4 Vehicle Parking - "No on-street parking, other than in connection with special events...."
 
We appreciate your attention to this important matter and thank you in advance for your support in keeping our community safe.

Pool Gate

posted Jul 22, 2009, 7:26 AM by Middleton HOA

Please remember to always close the gate when entering and leaving the pool area. Do not prop the gate open. Not too long ago we had a problem with the magnet on the gate due to the gate being propped open. If you are one of the many involved in tennis, please remember to bring a card key with you so that your guests have access to the restrooms.

CONGRATULATIONS MIKE!!!
