June 27 Workday Notes :

Thanks to all of you who turned out on a hot June Day to participate in our second official VHG Workday! We painted 90 mailbox posts and cleaned vinyl fence sections on Village Lawn and Garden Warbler! Just walking through the neighborhood, you can really see the improvement as a result of the work that was done. Afterwards we had a scrumptious lunch with Tom Jones cooking hot dogs for all. Others contributed fresh fruit, water melon, potato salad, homemade cookies, brownies, and many other goodies. Thanks to the following list of participants for their hard work and dedication to making our neighborhood a better place to live and keeping up our property values: Tom Jones, Reecie Dolan, Debbie Rutledge, Robert Evans, Shawn Parker, Kevin & Erin Cole, Kathleen McEntee, Mary Marcantonio, Mohamed El Sheikh, Rachel Vaughters, George Malarchik, DiMeo family, Becky and Sarah Fragnito, and Steven Pokou, the young man who won the grand prize for the day – a super soaker water gun!

Landscaping Update!
The plantings by Whitaker Landscaping have been removed after the drought and heat did them in! We are unable to pipe or haul water in at a reasonable price to keep them alive in the heat of the summer, so Whitaker will try again to replant more drought-proof plants this Fall. Fall landscaping maintenance should begin in September/October with core aeration, overseeding, and fertilzation. Please water your lawns on designated dates at least once per week after over-seeding is complete. The full Landscaping schedule has been mailed but can also be found on www.hghoa.com under HOA Board of Directors/Village.

Fences – Vinyl and Wood
Neighborhood Improvements: The privacy fence between The Village and the Circle K Gas Station has been extended in order to keep teenagers and children from traveling through private yards to access this business and neighborhoods behind us. No trespassing signs will be installed close to the Station area. Notice: One of our key Architectural Standards states that all wooden fences require two coats of white paint. Remember you must clean and paint both sides of the fence you own! Letters have been sent to several owners and the fine process will be levied for those who fail to comply. You may clean and paint your own fences or hire someone to do it, but it is your responsibility! Reminder: All requests for architectural changes must be approved first by The Village Architectural Committee and then by the Harrington Grove HOA before any changes are made. Forms for submitting changes may be found on www.hghoa.com on Pages 17 and 18 of the VHG Architectural Standards, or call Charleston Management to have hard copies mailed to you.

You are being a good Neighbor if you:
• Remember to pick up after you pets both in your own yard and the common areas! • Do not allow your pet to use other neighbors’ yards or flower beds to relieve themselves. • Do not park directly across from another car on our narrow streets! Do not park on the grass! • Know that no long-term parking is allowed on streets. Cars will be tagged after 7 days. •. Have guests park on wider side streets. No extended stays!

VHG Homeowners Association References:
• Each homeowner is a member of both the Harrington Grove and The Village at Harrington Grove Homeowners Associations. • See documents for both Homeowners Associations at www.hghoa.com. • All homeowners and tenants are subject to the By-Laws, Declarations and Covenants, and any Rules and Regulations or Architectural Standards for both of these entities in addition to all Raleigh City Ordinances (http://www.raleighnc.gov) .
