November 19, 2020 Update
Dear Property Owner’s,
To your family from the Pine Ridge Team, we are wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving….
As previously noted, Pine Ridge POA transitioned into a new cloud-based software system, this system and its automated features are absolutely amazing, I could not be more pleased with the changes. However, with this process, it has opened my eyes to even more possibilities, so we are actively working on introducing processes that will save the home owners money to be applied to updating or adding amenities, keeping your already low dues low, and being more efficient. We are encouraging everyone register your account by going to the MY HOA tab at the top of this page and then clicking on Register/Pay Dues, please keep in mind you do not have to pay your dues here, this is just an option, but by signing up, you will be part of all the upcoming processes and also have the option to opt out of anything that you are not interested in. The next step and perhaps the most important of all would be to sign up for Electronic Notice. Here is the reason why, in any of the past Board of Director Elections, participants have never exceeded 2,000 proxy/ballots returned, and out of those returned many had to be invalidated due to no signature, or an improper date. However, if you think about it, at least 2,819 of the 4,819 sent out threw them away and this is a costly process. The Board is appealing to you to receive all of this data electronically and they are securing an HOA electronic voting process, that one does not let you go without signing and will also date the proxy and vote properly. The savings and process to vote will be simple and secure. Therefore, we urge you to go to the electronic notice sign up next. If you sign up to CINC as previously mentioned, keeping records up to date and current will still require you to fill out address changes via an email or using the interactive form on the website, but you can view items such as all communications that are open on your property, and again your transaction history. The system is a direct banking system meaning each partner banking account is reconciled daily. I believe this is the beginning of streamlining essential processes and enabling this large community to stay connected through the vast features implemented.
The Board of Directors, Architectural Design and Deed Restriction Review Committees have been getting the job done via Zoom meeting platform. Believe me this is not the preferred method to a meeting, but it is allowing everyone to follow guidelines, stay safe, and get the work accomplished. Grateful to all of them for being flexible with the quick switch and temporary process, and look at going back to in house meetings starting October.
I cannot say enough great things about the staff, they have done a tremendous job with keeping up with the communities needs, the maintenance team inundated with the rain and overgrowth, will soon be getting to the trails so that you can enjoy them when the cool weather arrives, not only this, they did so much work in your community center, this remodel turned out excellent and I do believe you will be proud when you are using it or bringing a guest to a function.
The 94-acre complex consisting of your tennis/pickle ball courts, R/C flying field, playground, picnic areas, shuffleboard courts are all open, we ask that you follow social distancing guidelines and the rules that are posted. For use of the picnic areas with charcoal grills, they are first come first serve… We ask that you clean up after your party and that you do not move the tables out of the pavilion area. Please enjoy!
