~ Important Messages For Our Residents ~
Regarding The Annual Homeowner Assessment (Dues) -
By now, all HPE residents should have received the annual HPE Assessment (Dues) mailing.  In that package, additional documents were enclosed. 
For your reference, click on the link below for several of those documents:
  • Assessment Notification Letter => Click  HERE
  • Assessment Collection Policy => Click HERE
  • HPE Proxy Form => Click HERE
As stated in the Assessment Notification Letter, due to known future expenses (listed in the letter), the amount of the Annual Assessment (Dues) had to be increased.  Your Board of Trustees determined, to make the Assessment collection process more efficient, productive and for other reasons stated in the letter, a new Collection Policy has been implemented. With that Policy, the Assessment is now due by January 31, 2017.  Please refer to the "Assessment Notification Letter" and "Assessment Collection Policy" documents for further information.
The "2017 Annual Budget Letter and Annual Budget" was included in the package sent to all HPE residents to illustrate the amount of money each of the residents contribute to maintaining, protecting and enhancing our common property.  (Please call the HPE Hotline number if you want a copy of the Annual Budget which was mailed to the residents.)
The "HPE Proxy Form" was included to help you update your Proxy record to ensure the minimum 40% quorum will be met or exceeded for the April, 2017 Annual Meeting.
If the new Assessment Due Date of January 31, 2017 creates a hardship for you, call the HPE Hotline at 440-580-4204, Opt. 1 to inform your HPE Board of Trustess.  We will be happy to work with you regarding your payment.
For your Safety - Please Note:  
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 will be boarded off and you will see a “Keep Off” sign. 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.
Also regarding Our Pond -
The Landscape Committee and the Board of Trustees are aware of the low level of the Pond.  It appears this could be due to a leak in the side of the Drain for the Pond.  Resolutions for this is being pursued and more information will be forthcoming.
Please Remember - If you have questions regarding HPE -
  • You MUST call the HPE Hotline and use the proper extension!
  • DO NOT call individual Trustees or Officers directly, unless asked to do so - that is why we have the Hotline!
  • The Hotline number can be found by clicking on the "Contact Us Regarding HPE Information" link on the left side of this Home Page
Please Note: 
If you call the HPE Hotline to leave a message, you must leave the appropriate information.  (See the "Contact Us Regarding HPE Information" link on the left side of this Home Page for that information.)  Messages left anonymously will not be addressed.
Thank You!

~ Safety Information ~
SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION!  That means School Buses are back as well.  That means Children will be getting on and off those School Buses. Please be careful and watch for them.
BREAK-INS And THEFTS -  Yes, these have occurred recently.  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!

~ Maintaining Our Neighborhood's "High Standards" ~
  • 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
  • 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 b(a).)
    • Please DO NOT put your Trash out before that time.  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!
  • 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 winter weather!)  That is GREAT!
All of us residents like to see people caring about Our Community and keeping it CLEAN
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.
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.
