The HPA Annual Meeting is fast approaching!  Here's what you need to know:
  • August 16, 2016, 8 PM:  The HPA Annual Members Meeting.  We hope to see you there!

 
Letter from the President
 
I believe all of you should know why the Board continues to endorse our Management Partner, and the reason that we have asked Ms. Clanton time and again to stop wasting Association time, energy, and money. Click here to see the rest of the letter.
 

As noticed to each of you via regular mail, at the May 17th Board Meeting the Board voted to adopt the HPA Planning Criteria Manual.  This document is meant to serve as a guide to owners, providing everyone with the criteria used by the Architectural Review Committee when reviewing submissions.

Because this guide will necessarily change with the needs of the neighborhood, advancements in building materials, and updates to Florida Statute, the Board has committed to reviewing this manual each year, beginning in August of 2016.

Your input, ideas, and questions are a vital part of ensuring the Criteria Manual meets the needs of our community, and each of you is encouraged to review this document and offer your opinion for future amendments.  The HPA Criteria Manual as adopted may by found by clicking here, and your input is welcome by emailing HPA@gainesville.com.


We're in the news!  WUFT let everyone know that HPA is setting the bar for Florida Friendly Landscaping and water conservation in the state. 


Main Entrance Sign Improvements

 
Plans are underway for making improvements to our iconic entrance at Haile Blvd and Tower Road!  Alachua County is currently reviewing plans to pay for the landscaping improvements necessary due to the installation of the Archer Braid Trail.  You can take a look at the design by clicking here.
 
We are also taking this opportunity to refresh our entrance sign with new colors, the addition of brick columns, and lighting.  Take a look at the concept by clicking here.
 

Alert:  If you are considering renting out your Haile home:

Due to some recent criminal activity related to "renters," your Board is recommending that you obtain a complete background check on any potential renters. You can get complete criminal history check, background check, and credit checks all for less than $100 total. You can save yourself a lot of headaches and hassles knowing that your renters are credit worthy, responsible, and have no criminal background. Some Owners have put clauses in the leases indicating that if a renter gets "x" amount of Covenants Violations, they are in breach of the lease and would be responsible for any fines and/or evicted. Your Board and your neighbors will certainly appreciate it.

Thanks, HPA BOD


Remember to exercise caution when out on the trails after dark. Please be aware of your surroundings and carry pepper spray and/or a cell phone. Try to walk in groups if possible.
