A full Board allows for five (5) lot members, but the Board is currently comprised of only three (3) members. As has been announced, we now have a management company to handle most of the day-to-day operational activities, to assist the volunteer Board of Directors.
If you have an interest in participating on the volunteer board and serving your community, please notify the Board through either the "Drop us a line!" link at the bottom of the home page (which sends to the entire Board), or send an email to President@mygmoa.org.
We would love to fill the two (2) vacant positions as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your consideration of being a representative for our community.
One of the benefits of this time of year is the ability to see the limbs on your deciduous trees. So, here's the on-going, and continual reminder to Owners' that live along the perimeter, because things continue to grow...to review and trim 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 GMOA perimeter vinyl fence. Arborvitae and other evergreen type shrubbery up against the fence should be reviewed as well, and trim off any growth pushing up against the fence.
Also, please be mindful to pick up any debris which falls from your lot, onto the perimeter lawn or entrance areas. Remember, Owner's will be held responsible for any damage caused to the GMOA vinyl fencing.
Our annual dues have been spent towards, and continue to support the on-going maintenance of the GMOA vinyl fence. We truly appreciate your assistance in maintaining your side of the GMOA Membership asset.
We try to stay abreast of noticeable damage to the perimeter fence, but always appreciate a heads up if you notice new damage. Just click on the DROP US A LINE! link on the home page and let us know.
It's always important to keep the public sidewalk free of debris to allow pedestrians a safe path, and save you possible legal headaches. Even leaves can become a dangerously slippery opportunity due to frost/ice/rain. Per City Ordinances and GMOA Rules & Standard compliance stipulates the lot owner adjacent to the sidewalk is responsible for keeping the sidewalks clear.
If you notice a trip hazard due to a lifted sidewalk section on your lot, we recommend pursuing a resolution as soon as possible, such as possibly having the edge ground down to an appropriate slope or a new concrete section laid.
And last but not least, the maximum speed in the neighborhood is 25 MPH. So, let's all watch our speed, and if necessary, report repeat offenders to the Kootenai Sheriff Department and possibly help prevent an accident from happening in the first place.
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 boats, utility trailers, 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.
6. Recreational vehicles should not be stored on any public right of way for a period to exceed twenty-four (24) hours (City of Hayden ordinance).
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, the utility service will trim for access, not for the aesthetic appearance.
