Thank you to all of you who either attended the 2016 Annual Meeting or sent in your proxy. The 2016 Board of Directors were elected and have been appointed to the following positions:
Nick Barber, President David Day, Vice-President Molly Lightfield, Secretary Robert Corbett, Treasurer Gail McMahon, Director
As many of you know, Gary and Charlotte Adams went around the neighborhood the weeks prior to the meeting collecting proxies hoping that there would be enough collected to have a vote to amend the CC&Rs to allow honeybees in the neighborhood. There were not enough proxies collected so the Adam's will be coming around again with a petition to amend the CC&Rs plus we will be emailing the petition out and collecting signatures via email as well. The Adams wish to thank everyone for their gracious participation.
At the monthly HOA meeting November 16th it was discussed that two separate incidents have happened recently in the neighborhood that we feel all of you should be aware of, and know what to do and who to call in case you see or encounter something suspicious....
A homeowner from Sage Acres was walking through the Eagle Springs neighborhood around 6 AM recently and saw a man dressed in all black and hooded hiding in the bushes. She immediately turned around and went back home. We encourage you to call 911 immediately to report suspicious behavior such as this.
The Board has been made aware that on Halloween night a group of 14 or 15 kids blocked a car from driving down the street in the subdivision and purportedly assaulted it by throwing rocks and candy. The gal in the car did call the police but the kids scattered before the police got there. Throwing rocks at a car and causing damage is a misdemeanor offense!
With darkness falling earlier please be aware of your surroundings. If you ever think you are witnessing a crime please dial 911 and report it immediately.
If you see anything you think might be suspicious, or even just notice kids wandering the neighborhood after the midnight curfew call Ada County Dispatch at 377-6790 and ask them to send a deputy to the location as soon as possible and report your suspicions. Kids under the age of 18 out between the hours of midnight and 5 AM is a misdemeanor offense.
Dark areas attract criminal activity. For pennies a month you can help deter crime by keeping your front porch lights on all night and keeping your bushes trimmed up off the ground.
The Eagle Springs Annual Meeting is set for Tuesday, January 19th. Both the Ada County Sheriff’s Office and The Ada County Neighborhood Watch Program coordinator will be in attendance at this meeting to educate homeowners about crime statistics and what you can do to help deter criminal activity in the neighborhood.
Also, if you do see something suspicious and report it to the local authorities, please follow up with an email to EagleSpringsHOA@msn.com in order for us to share that information with your fellow homeowners so they, too, can be on the lookout! Communication is key in helping keep the neighborhood informed and safe!
The clubhouse calendar is being manually kept by Leann. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability before you start planning your event.
Our community clubhouse is available to members for parties, gatherings, meetings, etc. There is no fee for members renting, but the Association requires a $50.00 cleaning deposit. Cleaning is done by the renter and once the inspection has been signed off by the designated Board member, the cleaning deposit is returned. Unfortunately, those members in violation of the CC&R's or whose HOA dues are not current will not be able to utilize this amenity.
The rental agreement is our community Web site under HOA Forms. If you do not have computer access, please call Leann at Choice One HOAS at (208) 870-3094. She will make arrangements for your access and hold your form and deposit until directed by a board member to return.
Cleaning is the responsibility of the renter and there is a check list posted in the clubhouse for you to follow.
Homeowners, renters, and any visiting guests of Eagle Springs ... please do not park in front on anyone's mailbox at anytime!
The mail delivery person will not leave mail if there is a vehicle parked in front of the mailbox, which is a HUGE inconvenience to that particular homeowner! Please make sure to tell your visiting guests, too, and be a courteous neighbor!
When leaving your trash cans and recycling bins out for collections, pleaase make sure you park them IN THE STREET and not on the sidewalk. It is against code to block the sidewalks at anytime for any reason.
The Association contracted with Summer Lawns again for 2011. A huge thank you goes out to all those volunteers who are assisting on the landscaping committee – this is one of our biggest projects and volunteers on the committee have spent a lot of time on all of our landscaping issues. Summer Lawns planted new trees to replace the trees removed last spring by Idaho Power. The landscape committee presented the plan at the February Board meeting and it was approved unanimously by the Board. Eleven trees went out along Horseshoe Bend Road and five were placed in to a common area and the island between Lariat and Sagecrest. The trees are flowering; crabapple (pink) and flowering pear (white). The landscape committee presented all flowering crabapples but Juan at Summer Lawns suggested making a few the pear trees so the bloom colors were different. That was agreed to and so our new trees will have a color mix as well.
The landscaping project at the entry signs on Big Springs is being reviewed by the Board. They hope to finalize that bid soon.
Spring is upon us so please remember to maintain your property's landscaping in a way that meets or exceeds the following standards: removing and replacing dead trees/shrubs/etc. promptly; keeping lawns and bedding areas weed-free and trees and shrubs trimmed; mowing at least every 10 days; and watering regularly to maintain green grass.
Summer Lawns provides personal lawn care services and offers a discount to Eagle Springs residents. Contact them at 939-8469 for more information.

Expected Maintenance: All fences must be maintained in good condition and appearance. This includes replacing broken boards and posts as well as maintaining wood fences with stain. Older wood fences will likely require power washing to remove weathered or sprinkler marks from its appearance prior to staining.
Stain colors: You may choose a natural wood color stain of your choice. The board utilized Sherwin Williams #3031 Cabin Brown in a solid stain. All color selections other than the pre-approved cabin brown need to have an ACC request submitted via email to EagleSpringsHOA@msn.com for review and approval by the ACC Committee.
