Dear Har-Ber Meadows Property Owner,
Our Har-Ber Meadows is a beautiful neighborhood! Spring is almost over and summer is just around the Corner. Hope all of you have been enjoying the pool and visiting with your neighbors. I have not been fishing yet but have enjoyed walking around the neighborhood over the weekend and visiting with some of you. We are truly Blessed!
This note is to share some information and also to ask your help in addressing some issues.
- If you have not already received your fishing license you can pick one up at the Pool house. Our attendants will be happy to help you.
- Har-Ber Meadows POA Board members for the 2019-2020 year are:
- Jamie Smithson
- Rob Lyall
- Dr. Robert Stark
- Rob Stevenson
- Sully Sullivan
- Scot Jeffus
- Duane Rhodes
- One of the first things that people notice about our neighborhood is the trees. Unfortunately, there seems to be many trees missing and others that are sick or dying. If you would like to replace a missing or dead tree- Jacob at Sharron’s Nursery off of 112 south of 412 in Tontitown has agreed to a 20% discount off your tree purchases for Har-Ber residents. His number is 479-651-8100. If you are wondering what would be a good replacement tree call John at 479-856-2285 or email ManagementiiiLLC@cox.net. A page dedicated to tree species, maintenance, planting specifications, etc. will be available on the website soon. Please replace your trees as soon as possible. Your neighbors and those visiting our neighborhood will enjoy the fall colors for years to come.
- The week of June 24 through July 1 will be our first annual Har-Ber tree trimming week. If you trim your trees and stack the limbs by your curb, the POA will make arrangements to have the cut limbs during this week hauled away for you.
Please limb up your trees to height of seven feet above the sidewalk grade so that your neighbors can walk on the unobstructed sidewalks. Also, please remove the sucker limbs that have sprouted. It will only take a few moments of your time resulting in an aesthetically pleasing streetscape. The POA will continue to maintain trees on community property while residents will need to maintain their own trees. If you would rather hire help and need a referral, Dale Creamer is a resident and can be reached at 479-445-3365. Your attention to this is greatly appreciated.
- Security concerns. Normally the summer is the times when we see a rise in car break-ins and theft from garages and homes. We have police who patrol our neighborhood but they can’t be everywhere all the time. The following suggestions will help defend you and your property against theft:
a. Leave your outside lights on after dark. Thieves will pick the darker house as opposed to the lighted one.
b. A camera system such as Ring is a good deterrent.
c. Lock your doors and garage.
d. Lock your cars.
e. Neighbors watch out for your neighbors.
f. Report any suspicious people vehicles or activity to the Springdale police.
g. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
- Please observe the traffic signs and speed limit in the neighborhood. The speed limit is 25 MPH in the entire subdivision. We have lots of young kids in the neighborhood and no one wants their life changed forever in the event of an accident.
- Please keep your garbage cans concealed from street or alley view except for the day the trash is collected.
- If you are going to do work on the exterior of your home, landscaping, or add a pool, please remember to submit an application to the ARC to gain approval in advance. When in doubt, still submit an application. There is an online application on our web site and the committee will usually get back to you within two weeks if not sooner. The ARC meets every 2nd and 4th Monday at the pool house if you would like to go over your application with the members in person.
Go to www.harbermeadows.org. Click the Online Applications Link/Architectural Review Committee Application. Follow the instructions and your application will be emailed to the ARC Committee members. You will receive communication from the committee via email. Please call if you need any additional help.
As I said at the beginning, Har-Ber Meadows is a great community because of the residents. Everyone enjoy the sunshine and have a great summer with family and friends.
