Our neighborhood management company was contacted by a company out of Chicago that wants to purchase several homes in Hedgerow to rent and/or lease, either back to the owners that sold the homes, or to someone else.
This kind of scenario is EXACTLY what the board was trying to avoid by amending the current covenants to grandfather in people who currently rent and making it so that no more homes can be rented. The board was trying to protect our home values and our community integrity.
But most neighbors STILL have not voted, which translates to a no vote, and we need 2/3’s of the full permanent member homes to vote YES for this to pass. There is still time to vote!
Everyone got so hung up on association fees (THEY WONT CHANGE AND PAYMENT DATE REMAINS MARCH 1) and whether or not the amendments change our county status (THEY DO, FOR THE BETTER), or that the amendments gave the board more power (THEY DON’T) that everyone forgot or didn’t care to think about the main issue, which is avoiding our property values going down by having too many rentals. I am sure that you have driven into neighborhoods around here over the years, and wondered why they look so dilapidated, and the reason is a rise in rentals.
Is this what most of us want? A company coming in to Hedgerow and buying homes one by one and renting them out? I sure don’t.
Please reconsider voting YES to the covenant amendments, especially in light of this situation. I am sending a ballot here and also sending out the proposed amendments for everyone to read again (separate email). Mail or drop off the ballots to me at 4143 Barberry.
If you have any questions PLEASE PLEASE call me.
Please be sure to attend the Back to School Ice Cream Social

HEDGEROW HOA POOL PERMIT
This Permit and Acknowledgment is made on the date noted below by the undersigned member(s) of Hedgerow Homeowners’ Association, Inc. (“Association”), in favor of the Association, its officers, directors, agents, employees and members. In consideration of the Association’s agreement to permit the minor child named here to use and swim in the Association’s swimming pool and pool facilities as follows:
The Hedgerow pools are a pivotal part of the common areas and amenities available to Full Active and Charter Participating Association Members and are a social hub for Hedgerow families during the hot Georgia summers. The Pool Committee, with the full support of the Board, is committed to providing a fun, safe, and respectful environment for our membership, made possible by similar commitment from the members themselves. The pools are not de facto day camps, nor are the lifeguards to be considered baby-sitters, and we are all ultimately responsible for contributing to a positive environment.
1- Pool access is restricted to Full Participating and Charter Participating Members of the HOA and qualified, sponsored Seasonal Members. Non-participating Charter members and Permanent members serving suspensions are not eligible for access; neither as full active members nor as guests of full active members
2- All individuals aged 10-18 using the pool must present this permit slip with the child’s name and age to the lifeguard upon request, for identification purposes.
3- The lifeguard has complete authority to enforce the rules and to take whatever action is necessary to maintain safety, order, and decorum at the pools. This includes limited suspension of pool rights and, with Board approval, suspension of pool access for the entire season.
4- I understand that the Association’s swimming pool regulations require children under the age of 10 to be accompanied and supervised by an adult 18 years of age or older when swimming or using the Association’s swimming pool and pool facilities, and that this regulation is reasonably necessary for the safety and welfare of minor children.
5- I agree that my children’s use of the pool and facilities will be in full compliance with all published regulations of the Association and with customary safe and lawful practices.
6- I understand that the Association, in its discretion, may, at any time, revoke any privilege that I or my children have to use the Association’s pool and/or facilities, if the pool rules are not followed.
Child’s name holding this Permit Slip: _________________________________________
Name(s) of Member(s)/Parent(s): ______________________________________________
Signature of Member/Parent: ________________________________________________
Emergency Contact # _______________________________
Please review the pool rules. There has been confusion recently regarding ages when children can attend the pool without a baby sitter. In addition, the board has decided to issue a permit, simply print it out and present it to the lifeguard if they ask for it. This permit is for identification purposes. If the lifeguard asks for the permit slip and the child does not have it, the child will be sent home. The permit slip will be in the next email.
