Gentle Reminder – May 20, 2024

Hi Neighbors, 

As fellow residents of our beautiful community, we wanted to remind everyone of the importance of keeping Giles wild and wonderful. On occasion over the past several months, the large boulders by the lower pond and trail have been uprooted and rolled down into the ravine on the other side. When this has happened a fellow neighbor has moved them back to their original home only to have them uprooted again. We ask that you speak to your families about the importance of keeping our neighborhood beautiful for everyone and to avoid participating in vandalism. 

By working together and taking pride in our common spaces, we can ensure that our neighborhood remains a beautiful and welcoming place for everyone. Thank you for your attention to these important matters and for your continued commitment to our community’s well-being.

Giles Board of Directors

lot maintenance- May 14, 2024

Landscaping season is upon us.

For those of you who live in the single-family homes, it is your responsibility to keep your lawns cut and well-maintained all the way to the street. 
This includes keeping garden beds weeded and hedges trimmed appropriately. 

Pool bathrooms and pool decking – May 14, 2024

The painting of the pool bathroom floors as well as the pool decking will take place after the swim season is over. 
The vendor could not get us scheduled before opening this year. 
We apologize for the delay, but please know that these will both be completed in September. 

Recycling Reminder – May 14, 2024

Good morning, Giles Homeowners,

Please save the date of May 30th for a Shurm Homes update meeting and June the 17th for a Board meeting.

Architectural Modification Requests – May 9, 2024

Dear Homeowners,

This correspondence is a professional reminder regarding the submission of Architectural Modification Requests (AMRs). The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) is an assembly of homeowner volunteers appointed by the Board to evaluate all architectural submissions. The committee is chaired by Lucille Yurchak, who is available to discuss any inquiries related to your request.

Please be advised that the ARC adheres strictly to the established guidelines. While we receive numerous appeals for exceptions to these standards, it is imperative to understand that the governing documents stipulate clear parameters for what is permissible. Should your submission be declined, you are welcome to resubmit in accordance with the outlined standards. We appreciate your understanding that persistent communication with management or the ARC will not influence the decision regarding your request.

Upon receipt of a complete AMR, defined as one inclusive of all requisite documentation, the ARC endeavors to respond within a timeframe of 30-45 days. Should additional information be required, the review period will recommence from day one.

Factors that may extend the response period include, but are not limited to:

  1. Submissions lacking complete information.
  2. Direct contact with an ARC member before the committee’s review (Ms. Yurchak ensures all requests are complete prior to committee evaluation).
  3. Non-adherence to the established guidelines.

We thank you for your cooperation and attention to these procedures, which facilitate a fair and efficient review process for all community members.
