~ Important Messages For Our Residents ~
 
New Information To Note
When making a change to the exterior and maintaining your residence - Please refer to the "Architectural Control Committee Exterior Change Guidelines" and the "Property Maintenance Standards and Violation Procedure".  A copy of each has been mailed to every residence.  (They can also be found on the "Architectural Control Committee" link on the left side of this Home Page.)  These Guidelines will be enforced to maintain the High Standards of HPE.  Violation letters are in process.
 
A Reminder - Trailers, Boats or Recreational Vehicles must be stored in a garage.  Recreational Vehicles may be temporarily parked in the Owner's driveway for no more than three (3) consecutive days.  This is listed in the "Property Maintenance Standards and Violation Procedure" mentioned above.  Please be aware of this and please comply with this Property Maintenance Standard.
 
New Lifeguard Chairs and Table Umbrellas are now in place.  The old and rusting Lifeguard chairs are gone.  Exhaustive research was completed to find the new chairs. The Lifeguards like them!  New table umbrellas were purchased to improve the look at the pool area and provide good functional umbrellas for every table.  Again, good research was completed to find the best for a good price.
 
Many volunteers have been working to maintain items and save money at the same time.  Please see the "Caught Being Helpful in Huntington" box below for details.
 
Regarding the Pond Fountain - The Fountain Control Panel had malfunctioned.  The issue turned out to be more complex than anticipated resulting in a longer downtime than expected. 
 
For the Safety of Those Using The Sidewalks - Keep in mind - the property owner is responsible for maintaining trees and shrubs near the sidewalk.  They cannot block the sidewalk and must be trimmed to be at least 9 feet above the sidewalk.
 
A Reminder Regarding the "Common Areas" Within HPE - All "Common Areas", which includes the Pool/Pavilion/Playground Areas and Parking Lot, Tennis and Basketball Courts. Gazebo and Pond Areas, are "CLOSED AT DUSK".  Notices regarding this have been posted at various locations within HPE.  Anyone, except HPE Officers, in those areas after Dusk will be trespassing.
 
On-Going Information
HPE Documentation Is Available For your Reference -
The Declaration of Easements, Covenants and Restrictions, the Bylaws, the Amendments and the Common Property Supplemental Declarations are now on this website.  These can be viewed and printed by clicking on the "Declaration of Easements, Covenants and Restrictions" link located on the left side of this Home Page.
 
Updated Information Regarding The HPE Pond Deck -  
The Board of Trustees has investigated the condition of the deck by our pond.  They have deemed the deck to be unsafe for use.  As of January 1, 2017, no one will be allowed on the deck.  The entrance to the pond deck has been boarded off and a “Keep Off” sign has been posted. After reviewing the findings of several contractors, the Board of Trustees has determined that it is in the best interest of our residents to close off the deck at this time. The Board is reviewing options to replace the deck in 2017.  That will be completed this year.  The Landscaping Committee has contacted potential contractors for the repair of the Pond Deck and Drain.  They are narrowing down the prospects.  The repairs will begin as soon as they possibly can.
 

~ Safety Information ~
This Information Has Been Here For A While -
It Is STILL Good Information To Remember -
 
SCHOOL IS OUT FOR THE SUMMER!  That means Children will be out and playing in our neighborhood! Especially in the Pool Area.  Please be careful and watch for them.
 
BREAK-INS And THEFTS -  A few tips to try to prevent them:
  • DO NOT leave your vehicle unlocked if you leave it in your driveway overnight. 
  • DO NOT leave anything that looks valuable so that it is visible by looking into your vehicle
  • DO NOT leave your Garage Door open during the evening - especially when you are asleep
All of these make it too easy for thieves.  Unfortunately, we are living in times where WE must take extra steps to protect ourselves and our property.
 
What you CAN and MUST DO is be Alert, Watchful and Observant and call the Police if you see ANYTHING Suspicious!  No matter how insignificant it may appear to you.  For example, if you see a strange or unfamiliar vehicle, call the Police.  And yes, if you see strange or unfamiliar people, call the Police. 
 
Many of these crimes DO occur during the day when the thieves believe the residents are not home, out shopping or at work.
 
Be a Good Neighbor and watch out for your fellow residents.  Many crimes have been stopped or solved by the Police being alerted by residents giving this type of information. 
 
Call the Strongsville Police at 440-580-3230 for Non-Emergencies or 9-1-1 for an Emergency
 
Obey the Speed Limit (25 MPH) and Stop Signs.  More and more residents are noting violators not obeying those AND are informing the Police.  The 25 MPH Speed Limit and Stop Signs are the Law for a reason!
 

~ Caught Being Helpful In Huntington ~
 
Every so often, someone is brought to my attention who has gone, as it is said,
"Above And Beyond"
to show how much they care about our Neighborhood and the Well-Being of our Residents.
 
Mike and Marilyn Pacak, Gloria Badery, Arlene Myers and Bill Zahniser => For their help painting the Tennis Court benches and applying the oil to the new Teak benches at the Pond and the Pool/Playground area.  They all look very good now.
 
Bill Zahniser and Ron Rucinski => For rebuilding the Water Box Riser just south of the Pool Pump House.  They had to replace and secure the bricks for the riser and the cover.  They used concrete to accomplish that task and were very creative with the final appearance.  They obtained all materials at a discounted price to save money for HPE.
 
John Wallace => For repairing the Plexiglass panel attached to the outside of the Pump House between the bathrooms and for anchoring down the tables by the pool which broke free from the concrete pad around the pool.  This will prevent the wind from catching the umbrella and knocking the table over.  John took care of these items as he has for many other items around the pool area. 
 
It is volunteers like these who
- with NO hesitation -
are keeping our Community looking so good! 
Their work always saves money for HPE.
Makes us Proud to live here!
 
If you have a suggestion for someone going "Above And Beyond", please call the HPE Hotline at 440-580-4204, opt. 1 and let us know!

~ Maintaining Our Neighborhood's "High Standards" ~
This Information Has Been Here A While -
Good Information To Keep In Mind
  • Regarding the Trash for Residents, per the City Of Strongsville Ordinances, "Refuse shall not be put out earlier than the night before the scheduled collection day".  (Codified Ordinances of Strongsville, Ohio Section 1064.07 (a).)
    • Trash is now picked up on Wednesdays.
    • Please DO NOT put your Trash out before Tuesday night.  It will be unsightly and detracts from our Neighborhood.
    • If you see a "stray" trash container in the street, please stop and place it back on the Tree Lawn.  Thank You!
    • For the Strongsville Ordinance Regulations regarding Trash and Refuse, click HERE
  • Some Residents are leaving Brush and Tree Clippings on their Tree Lawn.  This looks terrible and surely your neighbors do not like it!  Here are the City of Strongsville Guidelines for this type of refuse:
    • There are three ways for residents to dispose of brush:
      • 1.      Take brush to the Transfer Station located at 16099 Foltz Parkway.
        2.      Bundle branches in 4-foot lengths and leave out for Republic Waste on your regular trash day (or the night before). Bundles can weigh no more than 50 pounds each.
        3.      Call the Strongsville Service Department for pickup at (440) 580-3170. The city will schedule a time, generally within a week.
        Guidelines for city's brush pickup and chipping service:
        • The city will ONLY pick up at the curb (do not obstruct sidewalk or street)
        • Place all cut ends in one direction
        • Keep pile as neat as possible (branches only, no steel, metal, debris or stumps)
        • Branches can be no more than 6 inches in diameter
        • Branches must be longer than 3 feet
        • Only normal residential brush is accepted – no land clearing. If you hire a contractor, the contractor is responsible for removing the brush
  • More and more Trash is appearing along ALL three entrances.  Show your PRIDE in Our Community and, if at all possible, please clean the trash up.  This may be difficult during the winter weather but it still makes a difference.
  • When they are walking around our neighborhood, some people have been seen picking up trash, left behind by irresponsible individuals - (Even in the nasty weather!)  That is GREAT!
 
 
Regarding Dog Care
We are seeing more and more residents cleaning up after their dogs, whether they are large or small.  We see this even in bad weather!  That shows what Great and Caring Residents we have here in HPE!
 
And, when walking your dog around our neighborhood, please maintain your dog by keeping it on a leash and under control so it does not charge or interfere with others! 
As always - your dog is YOUR Responsibility.
 
All of us residents like to see people caring about Our Community and keeping it CLEAN
 
 
HPE Street Signs and their replacement:
  • The HPE Board Of Trustees voted unanimously to replace the Street Signs, as replacement is needed, with the standard steel post street signs which the City Of Strongsville use throughout the city.  This will save HPE money and will allow for a more timely replacement when needed.
  • If you see a problem with a Street Sign please call the HPE Hotline at 440-580-4204 and select option 1 and let us know.  Thanks.
