11) Enjoy your time here and be respectful of your neighbors!
Our 2022 Annual Meeting was a success, and we are grateful for all who attended. If you were unable to attend, we wanted to share some highlights from our discussion.
The idea is that we all share this beautiful space and these are some reminders to make sure everyone feels safe and respected.
- Dogs on Leash – This is sometimes a sensitive issue because we all love our fur babies, but not everyone adores our four-legged friends as much as we do. Some are downright fearful and we want those residents to feel as free to explore our neighborhood as the next fella. Please leash your pets or keep them contained in your yard out of respect for your neighbors.
- Pick up the Poo – Oh boy, there is nothing worse than stepping on your property with flip flops and right into some fresh poo! It’s the worst! Please pick up after your pets and if you have renters, please share the same message.
- Common Area - Please refrain from driving or parking vehicles of ANY SIZE in the common areas. These areas are prone to divots and ruts and causes lots of problems when mowing. Common areas are for walking, playing and enjoying. It’s not fair if residents are using it for personal use and the others don’t get the same privilege.
- Drone Usage – Please respect your neighbors private property. No one likes to look up and see a drone hovering above them when they are in their own yard. If you need a place to fly your drone, see #3. There’s lots of common area to explore and your neighbor then feels safe.
- Grass Clippings are Dangerous - Did you know that when grass clippings are on the road after they dry they make it slippery for motorcycles, bicycles and even people walking by? Please turn your mower toward your yard as you mow to keep our streets neat, tidy, and safe.

An Open Letter to Our Community
The GHPOA board met recently recognizing that some members of our community may need help at this time of high concern over the current pandemic.
We are all aware the Covid 19 virus (Corona) is most dangerous to those with pre-existing medical conditions, especially seniors.
GHPOA is seeking volunteers to help in assisting those community members in need. This may be as simple as going to the grocery store or pharmacy. We ask that if you know of a senior member in the community to reach out to them and check on them often.
If you are willing to be called to help in our community please notify Carrie Perfetto at [304-676-9455] or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to coordinate.
If you are IN NEED of assistance – I ask that you call me at the number above and I will make every effort to get you the assistance you need.
Please stay healthy, wash your hands and lets look out for each other!
Scoop your poop!
We all love our four-legged friends but it’s not so nice to step in their poo. Whether it’s our home lawns, docks lots or the Glen Haven community property, please be a good pet owner and pick up after your pooch.
The sun is out...
and so are the kids!
Please respect the 15 mph speed limit in our beautiful neighborhood.
