2021 Spring Update

May 5, 2021

Dear Residents of Har-Ber Meadows,

We hope this finds you doing well and staying safe! As we are coming into Springtime, the POA Board thinks it is essential to send out an update to help keep our residents appraised of what is going on in our neighborhood. This past year has been unlike any other in our lives, but Har-Ber Meadows continues to remain strong.

Some of the achievements which occurred in the past year include the following.

  • Biologist lake survey completed
  • 207 fish habitats installed in lakes to help the growth and health of fish
  • Founder's Park bridge railing replacement
  • Park equipment installed, including new benches and tables
  • Brick paver repair
  • Renovation of a new entrance sign
  • New fencing installed
  • Botanical garden installation
  • Crump Packer Park hammock poles installed
  • Pool House water fountains replaced
  • Front entry fountain replaced and upgraded
  • Planted 19 new trees in various common area locations

This is just a small list of items that were approved and completed by the Board this last year. As we continue into 2021, we will send out additional updates to our residents to let you know of items being considered and accomplished by the Board. 

We are currently working on some new items relating to improving the Har-Ber Meadows website. We have added an SMS text message system through our website. Residents can subscribe to receive neighborhood and event announcements as well as emergency alerts straight to their cell phones. To subscribe, you can find a link on the Resident's Dashboard or if you are logged into the website you can find a direct link here. We recently put this system to good use when we sent out an emergency alert to subscribed residents concerning a vicious dog that had attacked a resident that was on the loose. We would encourage all residents to sign up for this feature because we know not all residents receive timely messages via email. 

We are also developing a library of topics that will be perpetually added to and updated. We are calling this a knowledge base, which consists of a central place to search links to neighborhood-related information, documents, and answers to frequently asked questions all in one place. When logged in to the website, this feature will appear as a top menu link for residents to quickly find answers to common questions. This feature is not yet available but is expected to go live soon. We will to introduce topics slowly over time, with a few topics being added each month. The idea is to develop a comprehensive resource for our residents over time. So please be patient as the knowledge base expands. Additionally, if you have any ideas or improvements to the information provided, there will a link to communicate your ideas or comments to the Har-Ber Meadows Communications Committee. Currently, content is being developed for topics related to the architectural review committee, pool, lakes/ponds, reservation system, waste management, and trees.

We continue to plan for our annual Har-Ber Meadows meeting, which will take place in May. However, since we are still under the cloud of COVID, this process will be different. We will continue to work with state guidelines, our neighborhood businesses, and sponsors in hopes of providing a safe environment for all to participate. We will have two Board positions open this year, and for those who are interested in serving, we suggest filling out a Board Position Candidate Application for consideration. You must be logged into the website to fill out the application. A link can also be found from the Resident's Dashboard.

We want to say thank you to all our residents for helping to keep Har-Ber Meadows the greatest place to live in Springdale, and we hope to see each of you soon at our annual meeting.
