Welcome to Feathergrass!
CoronaVirus/COVID-19 Changes Some HOA Operations (click here)
We know our community is much more than just a place to live – it’s a place to call home. Whether you’ve recently moved in, are a long-time resident, or are looking for the perfect place to move, we invite you to navigate through this website to learn more about our community.
But the absolute #1 best thing about this neighborhood is the great neighbors. They are friendly and we will all jump at the chance to help out when you need it.
YEARLY ASSESSMENTS (HOA DUES)
Homeowner Assessments (Dues) are now due on March 1, 2020. The HOA Board of Directors has made changes to the HOA Collections Policy so that the yearly assessments due date is changed to March 1st (instead of Jan 1st) for this year forward.
To avoid the $20-$40 convenience fee of paying on TownSq with your credit card, instead select the "One-Time ACH Payment" method. With the ACH method, it charges a "convenience fee" of $19.47 BUT also gives you a "cash discount" of $16.52, making it only a $2.95 fee total.
The board has decided to temporarily ease street parking and other rule restrictions (except the most serious of safety concerns such as parking in front of a fire hydrant, parking over the sidewalk, or parking near a stop sign or street corner)
We have also implemented actions to waive late fees, interest, admin fees, etc on most HOA homeowner accounts amid layoffs/pay-cuts due to COVID-19 and increased stress on families to find items in short supply and worry on whether they can pay the next house payment or even buy food. We have several families in the neighborhood that are adversely affected by this health and economic crisis.
The HOA board of directors will not close the HOA owned park or basketball court unless extreme conditions exist in the future. The use of the park is at the discretion of homeowners themselves and parents themselves will decide if their children will play at the park or on the playground.
Park rules are still in effect and can be found here.
Trash pickup on Thursday AM (on FRI after some holidays)
Trash pickup days: April 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd, and 30th, 2020.
Recycle pickup is only every other week.
Recycle pickup days: April 9th and 23rd, 2020.
PARK AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS
The Basketball Court was installed in August 2019.
The Playground install was finished October 11, 2019.
The park bridges were repaired/replaced on February 13/14th, 2020.
Repair of the sidewalk on the south side of the park (as well as the drainage duct underneath that is causing it to erode) was finished on March 28, 2020. Four tons of fill dirt was inserted under the sidewalk (during mud-jacking operations to repair the sidewalk) and under the street due to severe water erosion from under the street. This very likely saved the sidewalk and street from collapsing into a sinkhole. Some finishing touches (to seal the cracks between the street and gutter) will take place to prevent further erosion over the years.
PARKING LOT ON NORTH SIDE OF THE PARK
Park parking lot (on the north side) was painted on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 to include a handicap spot and parking spot lines and numbers. On Tuesday, January 28th, red "fire lane" lines and a "Feathergrass HOA" sign was installed.
The parking lot entrance sign indicates "Parking by Permit Only". The HOA will soon implement parking permits for this lot, and we will notify all vehicle owners who use this lot with instructions on how this will be implemented. Until then, park in the lot as usual.
HOA BOARD MEETINGS
This is a new board of directors that took over in 2019 by using the power of the petition to oust the previous board who were inactive, refused to make community improvements, refused to have yearly board meetings and violated many of the HOA governing rules. We hope you have noticed a positive change. You will continue to see positive changes that will increase the values of our homes and continue to make our neighborhood a great place to live.
Petitions rarely work to oust board members because a super-quorum (67 percent of all homeowners) is required to recall any board member, but the previous board would not listen to homeowners and refused to even have the minimum of 1 yearly membership meeting. This new board does listen. Please feel free to communicate with us in person, email, message, text or call so we can continue to make good changes in the community.
The next regular QUARTERLY HOA Board of Directors meeting has been scheduled at the Falcon Fire Department, Fire Station 4 on Thursday, April 16, 2020 at 7:30 pm.
This meeting may need to be held virtually (via internet live stream such as Zoom and Facebook Live) depending on the current events of the CoronaVirus/COVID-19 spread.
The two remaining quarterly meetings are scheduled for July 16 & October 15th.
