Dear Neighbor,

I would want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy 2019 and extend a warm welcome to new neighbors. If we haven’t already met, I look forward to getting to know you all. Our community website ( is a major communication channel between the HOA Board and homeowners. Please take a few minutes to visit and familiarize yourself with its resources.  We encourage all of you, and in particular, new neighbors, to please take the time to read through the Bylaws and Covenants.

Our mission, as a Board, is to act as representatives of the Heritage Lakes community in the overall daily management of the community’s business and interest. Guided by the HOA by-laws and other controlling documents, we are committed to being transparent and inclusive and act professionally with courtesy and respect.

In this letter, I would like to give you an update on major events, upcoming activities, volunteer information and announcements.

  •   At the end of 2018, our Property Management contractor, Full Circle, sent out the 2019 HOA dues statements. Payment is due by January 31, 2019 in order to avoid late fees. We appreciate your timely payment.
  • In late June 2018, several neighbors volunteered to work on the landscaping of the Heritage View Court roundabout. We appreciate the time and effort that our neighbors put into this project.
  • We identified several dead trees in the Heritage Lakes median and Inpatients Park for removal. Our contractor removed the identified trees and stumps are scheduled for removal in January, as weather permits.
  • In mid-December, we planted red tulip and daffodil bulbs at four corners. We wanted to add some color where the irrigation system is out of reach.
  • In the spring, we will be planting several new trees to replace some of the removed trees.
  • The HOA Board terminated the contract with HDL Landscaping at the end of December and signed a new contract with Earth Art Landscaping beginning January 2019. We are excited to work with Earth Art Landscaping and are confident they can help us revitalize the landscaping in our neighborhood.

We all take pride in our homes and our neighborhood. We ask that you do your part in maintaining and improving our neighborhood by taking the following simple actions:

  1. Contact the Design Review Committee (ARC) before you begin any exterior improvement projects on your property. For your convenience, there is an online form on our Website that must be completed before initiating any exterior construction or improvement projects
  2. Please be courteous to your neighbors by not parking cars on the street for extended periods of time.
  3. Please do not put your trash out for collection more than 24 hours prior to trash collection day. Also, please stow away trash cans promptly away from public view.
  4. Please maintain your mailbox and post.
  5. Please remove all Christmas decorations promptly. Each year we receive many complaints from neighbors regarding this issue.
  6. The City of Hilliard planted 10 new trees in our neighborhood in November 2018 and provided homeowners with information on caring for the new trees.
  7. Please plan on attending our upcoming Homeowners Association meeting in April. You will receive a mailed announcement in the mail.

Thank you for your trust and confidence.
