CY 2013 HOA DUES

2013 TVOCA  I dues invoices have been mailed to each homeowner.   Your dues help the HOA maintain operations and support activities in the neighborhood.  Each year, approximately 60 % of the dues collected covers our landscaping expenses including lighting of the Pebble Beach  entrance and lawn services for other common areas. 

 

The primary goal of every homeowners association is to protect the neighborhood.  We are here to preserve the  property values.  We can assure the HOA’s strength by being good stewards to our neighborhood.  Good stewardship means paying your dues and becoming involved.  Please remit your dues payment ASAP.  Paying your dues = voting rights on neighborhood issues.

IMPROVING CURB APPEAL

Spring is here!  The sound of lawnmowers and blowers are ringing through the neighborhood almost daily.  Our lawn is the first impression of our neighborhood.  Maintaining your lawn adds to your curb appeal and can impact neighborhood home prices.  While it is hard to place a dollar amount on curb appeal, It is easy to say that without it, the value of your home decreases.  Thanks for taking care of your lawns and shrubs.

 SPEEDING IN TURF VALLEY

People driving too fast is an issue for our community.  We are searching for solutions to curtail speeding in our neighborhood especially on the main streets like Pebble Beach, Boca Raton, and Boones Lane.  School will be out soon, please be mindful of your speed and definitely watch out for KIDS playing.  The speed limit is 25 MPH throughout the neighborhood.  Drive Slow. Watch out for the kids! Be safe. 

TVOCA SEEKING VOLUNTEERS

We are always seeking new volunteers to help the HOA fulfill its mission. We are looking for interested people for at least 2 more  leadership positions  as well as block captains.  If you are interested in learning more, please contact  a member of the Board.

TREE REMOVAL IN TVO I (Holly Ritter, Pebble Beach)


When needed I call  the county to remove dead trees that line our streets and then follow up for stump removal. If there are any more trees that need action you may email Holly Ritter at
rittholl@yahoo.com. or you may call the county directly at 410-313-7450. Please keep us inform if you call the county directly. Until now there was no money in the budget for new trees. There is now and the good news is they are no longer planting pin oaks!  They are replacing the them with willow oaks.

 HANDLING GRASS  AND YARD TRIMMINGS (Holly Ritter, Pebble Beach)


Please visit the Howard County web site (
www.co.ho.md.us) for lots of  good information on disposing of yard debris.  For grass clippings they suggest “grass cycling” which is leaving the clippings on your lawn. This returns nutrients to the soil and improves lawn quality. If you do not want to do this then they urge you to bag them in paper not plastic. Place curbside for pick up on our recycling day.  Whichever you choose is fine but please do not dump them in David W. Force Park! The county is aware that some residents do this and want us to please stop.
