Time to clean out the closets and garage of all those items you don't want, use or need any more. GMOA will be posting a neighborhood garage sale notice in Craigslist, CDA Press, and Nickels Worth, as well as a large sign posted at all three entrances the Monday before.
When there is more than one garage sale in a general area it tends to help with getting more traffic, but feel free to do your own advertising. Just remember if you post signs at the entrances or in the neighborhood, be sure to get them picked up by Sunday, 7/12th.
At this time we are all trying to stay well, keep our families healthy, and not inadvertently spread the virus to others. We ask if you are not sick and aware of health compromised and/or elderly neighbors to give them a call and, if necessary, go to their door (keeping a safe distance) to check-in on them and see if they can use anything. Let's help each other when we can.
We currently have a full board of five (5) members but there will be three (3) terms ending this year, which will be addressed at the 2020 Annual Members meeting through an open election process.
If you have an interest in participating on the Board and being included in the 2020 Board elections in the fall of this year, please notify the Board through the "Drop us a line!" link at the bottom of the home page or email to Secretary@mygmoa.org.
The Board of Directors has approved and is moving forward with the installation of sprinklers along Ramsey Road, and sections along Prairie Avenue. We expect the project to be completed by early July.
We recently completed a fence review and have replaced all broken posts, pickets, and rails. For any new damage, owners' will be responsible for repairs needed if the damage is caused from inside the lot.
There were a few very noticeable areas of concern with either tree limbs lying on top, or pressure being applied against the fence, creating outward bulging. If it applies to you, please review your GMOA vinyl fence line to remove any dirt piles or items leaning against the fence, as well as cutting branches on or near the fence that can cause damage.
This is a residential neighborhood and it's important for safety and aesthetics, that yards and homes are maintained. However, we seem to have a continual issue with improper parking of large work type vehicles, trailers, as well as recreational items such as boats. Besides needing to abide by the ACC Rules & Standards for GMOA, the City of Hayden can also ticket.
In addition, vehicles which have been abandoned, wrecked, are unused and/or disabled or junk are prohibited within the subdivision. Let's not have the look of a salvage junk yard, affecting property values. If it is necessary to store an disabled vehicle, an acceptable place to do so is inside your garage or off-site.
1. No recreational vehicles, boats, campers, or trucks larger than a standard pickup truck shall be parked or stored on a public right of way within Grouse Meadows.
2. Parking in the swale or on a lot’s front yard is prohibited. You can park vehicles on to the edge of the swale but no more than 1 foot.
3. No commercial vehicles over 2 tons may be parked overnight in the Grouse Meadows subdivision.
4. Personal vehicles must not interfere with the movement of traffic on the public right of way, and shall not be parked in an unsightly manner.
5. Vehicles parked in driveways shall not obstruct the sidewalk.
Fire hydrants near your home must have a 3 foot clearance and must not be obstructed from road view. Valuable time is lost, if the responding Fire Department has to take time to locate or access the hydrant.
Meter lids should also not be obstructed. If either the fire hydrants or water meters are found to be obstructed by trees or shrubs, they may be trimmed. If so, they will be trimmed for access, not for the aesthetic appearance.
