~ Important Messages For Our Residents ~
HPE HOMEOWNERS -
An Important Meeting Has Been Scheduled -
Due to the Notice of the April 2016 Annual Election Meeting not being sent properly to the HPE Homeowners and the required Quorum of at least 40% of the voting power of the Homeowners not being achieved for that meeting, the April 2016 Annual Meeting has been rescheduled for October 11, 2016.
 
This is an important meeting.  As such, a packet for this meeting has been sent to all HPE Homeowners.  The packet contained the Meeting Notice, a notice regarding the Trustee Positions to be elected and a newly designed Proxy.  Please complete this new Proxy by indicating your name AND address and return it.  You can either use the Return Stamped and Addressed Envelope or drop it in the Mailbox at the pool driveway. 
 
You or your Proxy are needed to achieve the required quorum to hold the meeting.  If you complete and send your Proxy in but then attend the meeting, your vote will override the Proxy.  If you have lost your Proxy form, you can print a new Proxy form by clicking  HERE.
 
If you have not received this packet, please call the HPE Hotline at 440-580-4204, Opt. 1.
 
The Meeting Notice sent to the HPE Homeowners is shown below so as to ensure the HPE Homeowners are notified via the HPE website as well.
 
The Notice reads as follows:
HUNTINGTON PARK ESTATES HOMEOWNERS’ ASSOCIATION
NOTICE OF A 2016 SPECIAL MEETING
                                                
Date: October 11, 2016
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: Mike Daymut Community Room, Ward 1 Fire Station, 11297 Webster Road
 
Purpose:  To elect 3 individuals to serve on the Association’s Board of Trustees
 
          In an effort to properly administer the Huntington Park Estates Homeowners' Association, the 2016 Annual Meeting that was previously attempted on April 5, 2016 is rescheduled for October 11, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. as it has come to the Board’s attention that the Notice of Annual Meeting was not properly sent to the owners at least 7 days and no more than 60 days prior to the date of the meeting as required by the Bylaws.  In addition, the Bylaws require a quorum of at least 40% of the voting power in person or by proxy to conduct the Annual Meeting, which was also not achieved at the prior Annual Meeting attempt.  Therefore, to comply with the Bylaws, the Board has rescheduled the 2016 Annual Meeting at the date, time, and location specified above.
 
If you would like to have your name added to the Ballot for the 3 open Trustee Positions, please see the “Positions Open For Election” and the “Persons Interested In Being A HPE Trustee” forms included with this notice.
 
          To avoid the cost and inconvenience of multiple failed Annual Meeting attempts, the Board requests that you submit the enclosed Proxy to guarantee a quorum at this meeting.  Please keep in mind, if the required quorum to hold the meeting cannot be achieved by either your attendance or your Proxy, we will have to reschedule the meeting again and incur the cost of another mass mailing and a delay with electing the Trustees.  So, please complete, sign, date, and return the Proxy in the enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope even if you plan to attend the meeting.  If you attend the meeting, your Proxy will be returned to you.
 
The enclosed Proxy is a newly written Proxy for HPE residents.  It has been written with the help of Kaman and Cusimano, LLC.  It conforms to our Bylaws and will be valid for 5 years.

~ 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.
