|PARKSTONE ONSITE GATEHOUSE ATTENDANT HOURS – IMPORTANT UPDATE
|Posted on Nov 17th, 2013 Comments (0)
PARKSTONE GATEHOUSE ON SITE STAFF HOURS CHANGE TO SATURDAYS –
Please be aware we are modifying the staffing hours of our gatehouse attendant, Bill Smith, better known to us as 'Bill Gates' since he works administratively in our 'gate' house answering questions, resolving issues and helping with resources. Rather than staffing the gatehouse on Tuesdays, we are moving his day to Saturdays commencing this week. We project that this will provide better access to Bill for all of us since he will be here on the weekend.
Accordingly, as of this Saturday, November 23, 2013, Bill will be at the gatehouse from 11:00AM until 5:00PM and each Saturday following. Stop by to see Bill if you are in need of a gate remote (or decal), pool key, or for any matter you would like conveyed to the board or management company.
P.S. Bill really like cookies :)

|New Company to Help Parkstone with Dues Collection
|Posted on Nov 10th, 2013 Comments (0)
For many months now, the Parkstone HOA Board has been encouraging owners who owe back
assessments to come forward and try to settle up their accounts. Unfortunately, there are still
many owners who are not paying their association dues which puts a heavy burden on the rest
of the community during these trying times.
While times have been tough due to the slow economy and health issues for some, the Board has
offered to work with any homeowners who want to do the right thing and bring their accounts current.
The board can do this by offering payment plans and similar arrangements to work out any arrearages.
Unfortunately, there are still many other owners who can but do not fulfill obligation the pay their
fair share and prior management efforts to reach out to these folks have not been successful.
This is a very serious matter.
Do to some lack of action over the last several years in part due to prior management companies our budget deficit has been growing larger with no end in sight. As a result, Parkstone recently signed
a contract with Asset Professional Group (APG), an outside collection firm, to help return to our treasury
all the money that is owed to us. This debt represents a substantial amount of money that could be much
better used for improving Parkstone's common areas, lawn maintenance, plant and equipment needs in addition to keeping dues low in the future, rather than being spent on legal fees and court cases.
The Board wants everyone who may owe Parkstone money on their account to please, please, please
contact our management company to discuss your individual situations. We are willing to work with any
homeowner who seriously wishes to straighten out their account with us. However, if you are contacted
by APG, it may then be out of the boards hands to work with you to find an equitable solution to your
specific situation. No one wants to see a friend or neighbor lose their home to foreclosure but that could
be the ultimate result of not helping Parkstone solve the serious debt burden we all are now facing as
members of the Parkstone Homeowners Association.
This is a very difficult but necessary measure that had to be taken. As we evaluate the neighborhoods stability and condition over the next five to ten years we know that this action will result in keeping neighborhood a great place to call home.

|Parkstone Food drive was a complete success
|Posted on Nov 9th, 2013 Comments (0)
The Parkstone neighborhood support of Cub Scout Pack 196's Scouting for Food drive was a complete success. We collected over 550 items of food. That will go a long way toward feeding hungry people. Thanks to Parkstone this has been one of the most successful food drives Pack 196 has conducted. If you were not able to give and would like to then during the coming week leave you food donation on the 'exit' side of the gatehouse just under the overhang next to the black trash receptacle.
Thank you all for your generosity during this Holiday season.
