~ Who We Are, Where We Are and What We Offer ~
 
Huntington Park Estates is among the first planned residential communities in the Greater Cleveland area. The neighborhood covers 42 acres with 18.6 acres dedicated to Green space (common ground).  Of the 520 single family homes, 221 are divided among seven (7) cluster associations.  All homes are either ranch or two-story models.  Huntington Park Estates is a deed restricted community with a Declaration of Easements, Covenants and Restrictions which include the By-Laws and is managed by a board of five Homeowner Trustees.  The Board of Trustees is responsible for maintaining the common properties of Huntington Park Estates and for monitoring and enforcing the Easements, Covenants and Restrictions which help maintain the original vision for the community.

~ Caught Being Helpful In HPE ~
 
Tired of the Doldrums of the Winter Weather?  Perhaps the following articles may help you with thinking of the warm weather. 
 
Last year, during the warmer weather, several projects were completed to improve HPE.  The work was performed by a dedicated and caring group of residents. 
 
Those projects and a Comment are as follows:
  • The HPE Pool Deck was improved.  Many areas that were peeling, cracking and spalling out were taken out and expertly patched.  Click HERE to see the details.
  • The Landscaping at the entrance of the new Pond Deck was improved.  New Shrubs were planted to enhance the new Deck.  Click HERE for the details.
  • The HPE sign located at the Whitney Road entrance was repainted.  It was in need of a face-lift.  Click HERE to read more information.
  • The Lettering for the Common Area Signs was repainted.  This was needed to make the Signs readable again.  Click HERE to see the results.
  • A Resident asked to show her appreciation regarding the work, like this, completed by the HPE Board of Trustees and Committees.  Her comment can be read by clicking HERE.
These are the kind of things that many times goes unnoticed but at the same time maintains the very high standards and appearance of Huntington Park Estates.  Without this dedication and willingness for these volunteers to spend the necessary personal time, HPE would not be the beautiful place it is. 
 
Thanks to these and all Volunteers for their work for the betterment and well-being of HPE!

~ Maintaining Our Neighborhood ~
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
 
 
Regarding The Geese and Deer -
Do Not feed the Geese or the Deer.
This will attract them and keep them coming back for more. 
 
Both of these Wildlife Animals can and most likely will:
  • Leave undesired droppings which are unsightly and unhealthy.  Feeding the Geese around the Pond area defeats the procedures the Board is using to deter the geese from that area.
  • Eat and possibly ruin your flowers and other landscaping. 
  • Be attracted to trees such as Crabapple Trees.  If you have this type of foliage near your front sidewalk, please clean up the areas under them.  Otherwise, it may not be healthy for the children or the adults who walk on these sidewalks.  It is also very unsightly.  And, vehicular traffic may be impeded by geese who attempt to cross the street.
If you would like to remove or replace a tree located on your Tree Lawn:
  • The City of Strongsville will:
    • For FREE - at no cost to the Homeowner - cut the tree down, grind the stump and plant grass!
    • Replace the tree at a cost to the Homeowner.  For further information. click HERE
 
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.

~ On-Going Information For Our Residents ~

The Following Are Reminders Which All Owners MUST Follow - They Will Ensure Owners Comply With Strongsville City Ordinances and HPE Will Be At It's Best And Remain A Highly Desirable Place To Live...
​​​​​​​
 
Trees and Shrubs near Sidewalks:
  • It is the responsibility of the Homeowner to maintain these items per a Strongsville City Ordinance.  Trees must be trimmed at least 9 feet above the sidewalk.  Shrubs cannot extend over a sidewalk.  Sidewalks must be clear for walking.  Please be a GOOD NEIGHBOR and keep these trimmed.  Thank You.
Homeowners with uneven sidewalks in excess of 2 inches must repair them
  • If a homeowner sees a sidewalk they deem unsafe, they should contact the city at 440-580-3105 to report it.  They should not fill out a violation form on this issue.
If you are encountering an issue with a tree located on your Tree Lawn or wildlife attracted to it -

    • If you have any Kitchen Cabinets you no longer need, they may be of use at the Pool Guard Office.  Please call the HPE Hotline, 440-580-4204, Option 1 and leave a message.  That just may save money for HPE.
