HOA News for November & December 2017

From the Board to Bella Terra Residents

Nov/Dec 2017

Hello Bella Terra. Winter is upon us and the board is hard at work. First things first, the board wants to thank Nick Utley for helping with the entrances. Nick was able to trouble shoot and fix the broken coach light, as well as, label the power panel at the front! Also, special thanks to Erica Carr and the social committee for the fall festival. Great job everyone!

The HOA board has transitioned and we are pressing ahead. See update below.

Delinquent Member Dues and Assessments:

The board has been on a mission to clean up our outstanding balances and we are happy to report we have made significant progress in a very short amount of time. Upon review, it was found that aged balances were not carrying interest. This has been corrected and will be reflected in December Financials. Going forward our Neighborhood Services Company will be keeping a diligent eye on this to ensure accuracy.

In just a few short months we have managed to collect over half the outstanding balances. To give you an idea, the balance was showing $54,000 outstanding, and at this time we are estimating that total around $20,000!

We want to remind everyone that the HOA is a business and collections of funds are very important to prioritize projects that need to be done. For the few that are carrying a high balance, the board will be meeting with a collection attorney in the coming weeks to review options. Our goal is $0 for our aged owner balance. All financials can be found on bellaterrahoa.wordpress.com.

Speeding:

We still have a lot of people that drive to fast in the neighborhood. The Speed Limit is 17 mph! Please be careful and slow down! There are a lot of reports of tailgating to the board. To the handful of “wanna be” Nascar drivers….SLOW YOUR ROLL! If this continues we will look to add additional stop signs.

Other Projects that are being researched:

  • WIFI capability at the pool house. (Protected and secure guest network)
  • Sodding West side of pool house and adding drainage runoff chute.
  • Cleaning the drainage ditch between the playground and soccer fields. Minimize obstructions of flow. •
  • Refurbishing the bridge to the soccer field and minor support fix.
  • Adding rip rap to stabilize behind the pool house and drainage ditch. (Protect the wall from erosion)
  • Adding new soccer nets for the goals.
  • Redoing the entrance signs to include LED backlighting that changes colors by command. (Christmas colors, bedlam colors, spring colors etc)
  • Adding additional power outlets at the entrances. Would allow us the ability to plug Christmas lights in etc.
  • Redoing the entrance landscaping. Possibly adding fescue in parts of the entrances that receive poor sunlight.
  • Signs when pulling out of the neighborhood for upcoming events. (Fall Festival, HOA meeting etc.)
  • Expanding the NextDoor app capabilities or designing a new web page to allow for online polling etc..

The above list is not all we are doing but the vast majority. IF you have an idea or want to help. Reach out to a board member and let us know. We like to hear from you all. All of our emails can be found on NSC and the Bella Terra website. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Thanks

Bella Terra Fall Festival November 5th

We’re so excited for the upcoming neighborhood Fall Festival. We hope you will join us with your families at the playground Sunday, November 5 from 2 – 4 p.m.

We’ll have inflatables, pony rides, face painting, a photo booth and more. We ask that if your last name starts with A-L, that you bring an appetizer or sweet treat to share. If your last name starts with M-Z, please bring a bottle of wine or drinks to share.

See you there!!

Bella Terra Vote Update

The early indications are the fine schedule has been approved along with amending the trash can positioning and research online vote. We are currently awaiting the official recount by a third party. This will help ensure no votes were counted twice. The approval ratio was 98% in favor for the second meeting so we do not anticipate a reversal even if a few duplications are somehow found. We will be uploading the fine schedule to our neighborhood site as well as neighborhoods plus web page. Great news that we have a uniform way to handle violations in the future!

The board appreciates all the comments and feedback from Friday’s meetings as well. Some really good feedback. To date there have been two nominations for the upcoming board positions. Andrew Winningham and Stan Williams have volunteered their services. We will look to have another HOA meeting in early November to either make these official or have an election if other parties are interested. If interested please let the board know ASAP so we can prepare proxies and ballots.

Remember fall festival is around the corner and the social committee has been working hard to prepare!

More updates to come!

Update from the Bella Terra HOA Board

Hello Bella Terra, The Board wanted to give a quick update and gentle meeting reminder.

We have a meeting at the pool house THIS Friday (October 13th) from 4:30 – 7pm. Its a come and go style meeting in which the fine schedule is still up for a vote. Please make sure to send your proxies and vote into a board member if you can not attend. If you have voted already your vote will NOT count twice but you can still sign in showing attendance. Also, it should go without saying, but If you are delinquent or owe the neighborhood money, your vote will not count. Please reach out to a board member if you have any questions. The board is HAPPY to pass along that we are currently ZERO balance with the bank on the road project!!! We have paid off the loan early and saved a little of our hard earned money! Again,

The board is HAPPY to pass along that we are currently ZERO balance with the bank on the road project!!! We have paid off the loan early and saved a little of our hard earned money!

Again, a special thanks to everyone who participated in the road project. The Road Committee consisted of Grey Aldridge, Aron Hancock, Chris Lelak, David Johnston, Paul Prater, Justin McCarty, and Matt Wade. Great job guys!

Armor did a great job and thanks to them as well! Our layout and circumstances inherited don’t exactly make for a very easy project. With a job this size, there were very few issues. Matt Wade had a big hand in that as well.

Remember that the road situation will be an ongoing expense from here out and we all have to do our part to stay on contractors coming and going. Unloading heavy equipment is where we are currently seeing some early minor surface damage. If you are having work done that requires the use of heavy equipment please urge the contractors to put some form of barrier down while unloading. (Plywood etc.) Don’t be hesitant to take pictures or videos if you see damage being done. Stay vigilant and with any luck we can get a few years without any major expense!
