2016-2017 HPA Operating Budget Adopted
At the July Board of Directors meeting, the Board reviewed and discussed the proposed budget for next year. On August 16, 2016, the Board adopted the 2016-2017 Operating Budget and is excited to announce the second consecutive year that HPA Common Area assessments are remaining flat, with no increase!
To accomplish this, the Board has been planning for years to improve the neighborhood while at the same time building reserves. With more projects on tap this year, expect to see more improvements to our community!

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.
