Neighborhood News

Update April 14, 2015:  In the intial letter sent to all homeowners on March 13 there was a statement that "Council will send a more comprehensive letter with details of the new policy".  The plan was to have this letter ready for the Council to review at the next board meeting on April 23rd.  Unfortunately the HOA attorney has not been able to complete the letter because the insurance company has not yet provided a copy of the new policy. We will continue to keep you posted on this letter and post a copy on this website when it is released.
A letter was sent to all homeowners today containing important information on the community's insurance policy provided by the HOA.  You can view a copy of the letter by clicking here.  It is very important that every homeowner immediately contact their insurance agent to ensure that your H06 policy provides sufficient coverage based on the changes to the community policy.  The new community policy includes several significant changes and your individual H06 policy may need to be updated to reflect these changes.  In short, the deductible for the community policy has increased from $5000 to $25,000 and additions/betterments and upgrades to an individual home are not covered by the community policy.  The Council will send another more comprehensive letter with details of the new policy but wanted to provide this information to you right away so that you can contact your own insurance agent to coordinate coverage. Again, owners will no longer be able to rely upon the Association’s insurance coverage for claims less than $25,000.00.
Annual Christmas/Holiday Party
Posted on Dec 8th, 2014 Comments (0)
The annual Christmas/Holiday party was held this past Friday, December 5th, at the Taramore clubhouse hosted by the Tara Social Committee.  We'd like to offer a special thank you to the committee for hosting this annual event.  The committee members are Pat Berlage, Jean Hedish, Mary Ann Denny, Susie Dodd, Sandy Poole and Jo Ann Fox.  A lot of work goes into preparing for and hosting this event and the committee members volunteer their time to make this a huge success.  Thank You!  We would also like to thank several of our vendors (5 Star Maintenance and Cru Cutters, our new landscape vendor) and Towne Properties, our management company for the door prizes donated for this event.  Your generosity is appreciated.  
Jim McGraw took a number of pictures at the party and posted his pictures on the Tara website.  You can find the pictures under the PHOTO ALBUM link.  The pictures are in the album titled 2014 CHRISTMAS PARTY.  Thank you Jim!
We would like to wish all residents of Tara a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season!

Dumpster Issues
Posted on May 22nd, 2014 Comments (0)
Over the past several weeks there has been an increasing number of problems (i.e., illegal dumping) in the dumpster corrals, particularly at the Scarlet Way location.  Unfortunately there have been three violation letters issued to homeowners along with a $250 fine as posted on the corral doors.   The board is committed to enforcing this policy and  will not waive the fines after the fact.  It seems that it takes one or two people to leave their trash on the ground and then everyone else assumes the dumpsters are full so they follow suit and leave their trash outside the dumpters.   Regardless of whether the dumpsters are full or not, leaving trash on the ground is never permitted.   As the signs indicate you must use the other dumpster site if the dumpsters are full.  In most cases the dumpsters are not full but people assume they are because of the trash on the ground.  In the case of the three violations over the past two weeks the dumpsters appeared to be full but in reality they were not.  The violators did not check the right side of the right dumpster.  Another contributing factor is that people are leaving large items (furniture, grills, etc) on the ground outside the dumpster.  Rumpke will not pick up anything left outside the dumpster and it costs the assocation to have someone come out and remove the items.   Leaving anything outside the dumpster, large or small, is a violation and subject to a fine if caught.  We also suspect that many of the large items are being left by people outside the community.  This is illegal and subject to a tresspassing citation by the Florence Police Department.  If you see anyone leaving items in the corral outside the dumpster we ask that you copy down a license plate number and call the Florence Police Department (non-emergency number: (859)647-5420).  They have assured us they will respond and issue a trespassing citation to the individuals involved.
New Email Address?
Posted on Jun 20th, 2013 Comments (0)
If you get a new email address don't forget to update your profile on the website.  When we send out an email to all registered members (currently 386) we routinely get approximately 40 emails returned because of invalid email addresses.  Registered members are responsible for keeping their profile current.  Providing Towne Properties with your new email address does not update your profile on the Tara website nor will a reply to a Tara message.  Replies to Tara messages go to an inbox for the Tara Web Administrator and the inbox is not routinely monitored.  If there are issues, concerns or questions regarding a Tara email they should be directed to Becky Race, the Tara Property Manager.  You can contact Becky at Beckyrace@towneproperties.com or by using the CONTACT US tab on the homepage.  From the pull down menu select "Property Manager".
Decks and Patios
Posted on May 25th, 2012 Comments (0)
The Property Manager along with board members and several vendors conduct a monthly walk of the community in order to identify areas requiring attention.  Over the past several months we have noticed an increasing use of decks and patios being used to store miiscellaneous items such as bicycles, toys, motorcycles, etc.  Community documents stipulate that "decks and patios may only be used only for their intended purposes" and "there will be no storage or parking of any items, including baby carriages, playpens, bycycles, wagons, toys, vehicles, etc".  
Patio Shades/Blinds
Posted on Apr 26th, 2012 Comments (0)
At the April Council of Co-Owners meeting the board approved the installation of patio shades/blinds in the Tara community as recommended by the Architectural Committee.  The exterior shades will allow homeowners with a patio or deck to block the intense summer sun and allow homeowners to better utilize their deck or patio.   As with the "Screened Porch" policy the installation of the patio shades/blinds requires the homeowner to submit an "Improvement Application" to Towne Properties and have the application approved by the board of directors prior to installation.
