Unauthorized Access and Damage to Banbury Golf Course

UP - DATE

Homeowners,

Unfortunately the Board and Golf Course have found it necessary to again report that damage to the Golf Course continues to occur, PLEASE SEE THE PHOTO AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.

This picture shows that someone rode their bycycle over the sandtrap and onto the 3rd green located just off of Chipper Way.  As you can see the bike left a deep gouge/indention in the green causing extensive damage, requiring costly major repairs.

The Board and Golf Course Management are requesting the help of our homeowers, and community, asking they report any information they may have concerning this activity to the Club House front office at Tel# 208-939-3600.

Thank you.

Board of Directors, BBM HOA

 

******************************** ORIGINAL NOTICE *****************

Dear Homeowners,

The Board of Directors and Banbury Golf Course Management need to ask for your assistance and support.  

As occurred late last summer unauthorized access (trespassing) has again been occurring on the Golf Course along with Vandalism to the greens and fairways during the early and late evenings.  The damage has included ruts cut into the greens and turf caused by bicycles and what appears to be the tires of private golf carts.  In addition, some course equipment, flag poles, etc., have been removed, damaged and discarded into areas off the course.  In some cases, damage appears to be from dogs running and stopping (skidding) on the surface of the greens.  Please note, making these repairs and replacing damaged equipment costs thousands of dollars each year.

For your information this most recent activity has been occurring on the greens and fairways around/on the 8th hole (off of Eagle Rd and Whitehaven Pl), the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th holes along Colchester Drive and the 3rd & 16th holes along Chipper Way.

Homeowners are reminded, and are asked to pass along to other Banbury Meadows Residents and surrounding communities, the Golf Course is on private property and the term "Public Course" means it is open to all paying customers that have been registered and properly checked-in at the Club House.  The property is not owned by the city, nor is it affiliated with the HOA, and it takes a great deal of work and financial resources to properly maintain the course in order to keep it open for the enjoyment of its customers.

To address this recurring problem, the Golf Course has been forced to engage the help of the local Police Department who will be conducting increased and regular surveillance of the Golf Course.  They will also increase surveillance using their own staff.

As we all know the Banbury Golf Course, although not part of our Association, is an integral part of our community.  It is a great golf course and contributes to the beauty and value of our neighborhood and homes.  It is in our interest to help keep the Golf Course in the best condition possible and we can do that by supporting the fact that it is on private property and refrain from using it as a public park.

What can we all do to help address this problem - - - we request and encourage homeowners to report any obvious unauthorized access or bad behavior taking place on the Golf Course property to the Club House Office by calling 208-939-3600 or by contacting our Association Manager, Jean Cariaga, DSI, at 208-939-6000 or email:  [email protected]

Your help and support concerning this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Increased reports of undesirable wildlife invading Homeowner's properties

This summer our HOA Management Company and the Board of Directors have received an increase in the number of reported sightings of undesirable wildlife (primarily Raccoons) within our community.  These critters, although cute, can and have been causing damage to a few properties.

After consulting with our local Urban Wildlife Specialist (Dept of Agriculture), and observing the areas that are being visited by these critters, the primary cause for the increased sightings can be attributed to an available food source, i.e. a few homeowners putting out food for ducks, geese and other wildlife.  Unfortunately feeding these less destructive animals also attracts Raccoons, Fox and other animals that can create problems.  It should also be noted that some of these animals can carry a variety of diseases such as rabies which is dangerous to both humans and pets.

Unfortunately once the Raccoons and similar wildlife find a regular and reliable food source they will continue to return and in most cases need to transit other homeowners properties which causes a number of additional issues and problems.

On  behalf of the Association, the Board of Directors requests that homeowners refrain from putting out food that may contribute to this problem by attracting undesirable wildlife.

Thank you.

Trees and Shrubs Overhanging Streets, Sidewalks/Streetlights/Road Signs

Homeowners,

We would like to again remind you that each homeowner is required to maintain their trees and shrubs insuring they do not overhang community sidewalks or streets.

For safety reasons there must be at least eight feet of clearance above sidewalks and 14 feet above streets.  Trees, shrubs and any other obstructions should also be removed/pruned back to make sure they do not extend into sidewalks or block streetlights and road signs (e.g. speed limit, stop and no parking signs).

PLEASE NOTE - During their regular drive-through inspections, our DSI Association Manager will identify properties that have trees or bushes, etc., extending into our sidewalks and impeding pedestrian passage.  Notices will be sent to those homeowners directing corrective action be taken.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and we appreciate your support in maintaining the appearance and safety of our neighborhood.

If you have any questions or need more information in this regard, please contact Jean Cariaga, our Association Manager at DSITel# 208-939-6118 or by email at jean@dev-services.com.

Thank you.

Emergency Reporting Procedures - Water leaks within Banbury Meadow's HOA Irrigation System

Policy / Procedure:

The Banbury Meadows Home Owners Association has its own irrigation system.  We own the main pumps, lines and valves.  However, the homeowner’s irrigation system begins on their side of the HOA main line and valve (buried deep underground) which can be found in the back corner of each lot.

What to do in an emergency when a leak is discovered in the HOA irrigation system:

  1. During normal business hours please call Development Services, Inc. (DSI) 208-939-6000 and describe the problem and circumstances.  Upon their discretion, they will dispatch someone to look at the leak and call Aloha Landscaping if deemed appropriate.  Unless your yard is being significantly damaged we urge you to wait until normal business hours to contact DSI and report the leak.
  1. If possible determine if the leak is in the HOA system/main line or on your side of the main valve.  If you find that the leak is in the HOA system, and it’s after normal business hours, you may call Aloha at (208) 322-9069.  Should you determine that the leak is within your irrigation system you can:  (1) Make repairs yourself, (2) Call your own landscaper, or (3) contact Aloha Landscaping and they will make the necessary repairs at your/homeowner’s expense.
  1. Aloha Landscaping provides 24/7 emergency services and will dispatch a technician to evaluate and fix urgent irrigation problems.
  1. Billing for repairs made: Once Aloha arrives onsite they will confirm if the leak is coming from the HOA main irrigation system or from the homeowner’s.  If the leak is determined to be within the HOA system they will send the bill to DSI.  However, if the leak is found to be within the homeowner’s system Aloha will bill them directly for the cost of the repairs and service call.

Also, it is recommended that you turn off your system as soon as a leak is discovered.  DSI or Aloha Landscaping will know how best to handle the problem and there will be no cost to you unless the leak is determined to be within your/homeowner’s irrigation system.

Thank you.

Exterior Construction and Maintenance of Homes and Landscaping

R E M I N D E R

Dear Homeowners,

As we approach the Spring Season, the Board of Directors would like to ask that each homeowner pay particular attention to the maintenance and appearance of the exterior of their homes and landscaping.  In that a significant number of the properties within our community are maturing, it is prudent that each homeowner review the condition of their home.  Areas of concern should be, but not limited to, faded paint, condition of exterior doors, garage doors and windows, cracked exterior walls, aging roofing material and the general health and condition of their lawns and landscaping.  Where needed and appropriate repairs should be made.  If you have any plants or trees affected by the winter, age or insects/disease we recommend that you have a landscaper inspect them to determine if it is necessary to have them removed and replaced.    

One of the main concerns expressed by our homeowners is what they can do to maintain the value of their homes?  As you may know, and as a community, the most important factor we can all do to achieve this goal is to maintain our homes at the highest standard possible, which includes regular maintenance.

Also keep in mind, when performing new construction or maintenance on the exterior of your home or making landscape improvements, homeowners must complete an ARC application form to make sure construction and maintenance standards established by our CC&R’s are metThe application form must be submitted and approval received prior to the start of any work.  The application, with detailed guidelines, can be found on our Website at www.banburymeadows.org, under “Homeowner Information”, Item #3.  PLEASE NOTE:  the ARC Application process has been updated and the review procedures streamlined to ensure we can achieve a quicker response to homeowners.  If you have any questions or need assistance in this regard, please contact our Association Manager at DSI, Jean Cariaga, Tel# 208-939-6000.

The Board and Association appreciates your attention to this most important matter.

Thank you.

Trash and Recycle Bins

Dear Homeowners,

Trash and Recycle Bins should only be put out on the street no earlier than dusk on Sundays and put away no later than dusk on Mondays.  If you are going to be gone during this period, please make arrangements to have someone put your containers out and taken in for you.

Please note, Republic Services, our Waste Management Company, requires all trash and recycle bins be placed on the street, against the curb, and NOT on sidewalks.  This is necessary as their service trucks and automated retrieval system cannot pickup bins from the sidewalks.  Placing the bins on sidewalks also impedes pedestrians and poses a safety hazard to members of our community walking through the neighborhood.

Homeowners are also reminded, Trash and Recycle Bins are to be stored out of sight from the street and your neighbors view (section 4.12, CC&R's).

Thank you for your support in maintaining the safety and appearance of our community.
