Please join us at the Elk's Lodge at 1170 W Prairie Avenue, Coeur d Alene, right across the street from the neighborhood on Monday, 11/16th at 6:30 pm for the 2020 Annual Members meeting. We've had a number of new owners move into Grouse Meadows, and it would be a great opportunity to meet some more of the neighborhood.
Notice has recently been sent out with the latest newsletter. To conduct any business, such as the Board elections, we are required to have a minimum of 15% of owner's represented in attendance or by proxy, which equates to 33 owner's. So if you cannot attend in person, we would greatly appreciate receiving your proxy which will be with your notice.
Hope to see you there!
A full Board consists of five (5) members and this year we will have three (3) terms ending, which will be addressed at the 2020 Annual Members meeting through an open election process.
It's important to keep a full Board, and if you have an interest in participating on the volunteer Board and serving your community, we would love to have you participate in the Board elections at the 2020 Annual meeting. Please notify the Board through either the "Drop us a line!" link at the bottom of the home page, or email to Secretary@mygmoa.org. Be sure to attend the 2020 Annual meeting to introduce yourself, as we'll be taking nominations from the floor.
We ask that you review your fence line as soon as possible and trim up all limbs which are 5 inches or less from laying on the fence or that are pushing against the fence. Also, please remove anything which is growing on, laying against or piled against the vinyl fence. Owner's will be held responsible for damage caused to the GMOA vinyl fencing.
We hope to be contracting with a tree service to review and trim anything which remains on the fence or within 5 inches above the fence line. The cost associated with this service will be passed along to the lots receiving any necessary clean-up. So, if you're not wanting to be charged, please take care of your needed trimming prior to November 14th.
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 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 vehicles. 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.
With winter snow coming soon, share the responsibility with your surrounding neighbors in keeping the hydrants and mailboxes clear of snow.
