You may have noticed that the site look and feel has changed. The company that hosted our site previously shut down on April 30, 2013 and so we had to move it to a new service. We are now on tumblr.com (which like the previous service, posterous.com, is free). It doesn’t have quite the capability of the old service so we are still looking for alternatives. But the address (hmroa.org) and the information on the site is the same, just the look is a bit different.
It is that time of year again for our community-wide open meeting of the HMROA. This year, there is much to discuss, including the status of repair and upkeep to the front entrance to the Highlands, roof repairs, lawn care. HMROA fees and financial updates, and open positions on the Board of Directors. Please join us on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at Crozet Elementary School from 7:30-9:00pm.

Hello All - please note a few updates on lawn care and aesthetics as we emerge from the snow storm this week and turn toward the Spring soon:
(1) Lawns will receive the first pre-emergent weed treatment by Dunn’s Landscaping at the end of next week. Anyone wishing to skip this chemical treatment must contact Tony Waterfield at TheWaterfieldsCrozet@gmail.com by Tues so he can notify Dunn’s.
(2) All Holiday twinkle lights must be removed from homes immediately; and
(3) No vehicles may be parked on the shoulder of the roads. Any homeowner with a vehicle parked on the shoulder may be fined by the HOA. Vehicles are to be parked in driveways only to maintain lawns.
Highlands Dr. & Grassy Knoll homes
will be inspected Saturday, January 12th.
Amber Ridge Rd., Amber Ridge Court,
and Mechums River Rd homes
will be inspected Saturday, January 19th.
The Highlands at Mechums River Owners Association announces your regularly-scheduled annual termite inspection. This inspection is necessary to maintain the service agreement to protect our homes from termite damage. The inspectors from Holistic Pest Solutions will ask to come into your home for an internal inspection of the property. If you will not be home for any reason, please make safe and secure arrangements for the inspectors to gain access to your home. An option might be to contact a neighbor who would be available to let the inspectors in and stay for the brief time they inspect the property. If you do have a neighbor who is willing to let them in, please leave a note on your door as to which neighbor will be letting them into your home. The technicians will begin at 8:30am on the right side of the street, and progress through the neighborhood until they are finished with that section.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Fall Leaf Collection - Nov 26-30
As the last few leaves cling to trees in the Highlands, it is time for leaf collection. Dunn’s Landscaping will collect leaves from our front and side yards between Nov 26th and Nov 30th. If homeowners would also like Dunn’s to remove leaves from back yards, they should request this service independently through the landscaping company using the contact information below.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
Fourth of July Parade and Celebration June 30Tagged as: Carroll Conley, Crozet, fireworks, fourth of july, From the Editor, independence day, parade
Fourth of July Parade and Celebration in Crozet Park Set for June 30
Crozet’s traditional Independence Day parade and town celebration is set for Saturday, June 30, and promises to be the real deal of American-style family fun.
The parade will organize at Crozet Elementary School at 3 p.m. and begin marching toward Crozet Park at 4 p.m. Any one interested in joining in the parade should call the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department at 823-4758 to get a parade unit sign-up form.
Carroll Conley will serve as the parade’s grand marshal this year.
The parade, which typically requires about an hour to pass through downtown Crozet, is expected to reach the park at 5 p.m., where the town celebration will be held.
Music will be provided by the bands Lock Jaw, up first, and Second Draw.
Other events include a doubleheader softball game for town bragging rights between the volunteer firefighters and the coaches of the Peachtree League.
There will be rides, athletic games and amusements for young kids, including bounce and play inflatables.
The fireworks show is set for 9:30 p.m., when it will be sufficiently dark but not so late that youngsters can’t stay up. Bring a lawn chair if you want to be comfortable as you watch events.
Traditional American Fourth of July fare will be available, including pork barbeque, hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, popcorn, apple pie and more. Crozet-area breweries and wineries will also be on hand to offer beverages.
Donations are being sought to pay for the fireworks and event expenses. Cars entering the park will be asked to make a suggested parking donation of $5 per car and 50/50 raffles will also be held throughout the evening.
This year, proceeds from the celebration, after expenses, will go to create the Crozet Historic District and to establish a budget for next year’s event.
The celebration is a combined effort by Crozet’s civic organizations who have teamed up to put on the Fourth of July celebration, a task that in the past fell solely to the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department, which for many many years sponsored the celebration as a fundraiser. Joining the CVFD in sharing the burden now are the Crozet Community Association, Claudius Crozet Park (which is community-owned and led by volunteers), the Crozet Lions Club, the White Hall Ruritans, the Peachtree League, the Crozet Community Advisory Council, and the Downtown Crozet Association, as well as many local churches and citizen volunteers.
Yeah USA! Yeah Crozet!

Your HMROA has signed an agreement with Dunn’s Landscaping & Maintenance for this season.
Dunn’s landscaping & Maintenance
The lawn care service will begin on April 5-6, 2012. The company will provide mowing service of all common areas, as well as the front and side yards of HMROA neighbors. Contact Page Dunn directly to make arrangements to have your backyard cut, if needed. Each backyard will be priced individually.
Weed treatment will begin mid-April. If you do not want chemical treatments on your property, please contact board member Tony Waterfield asap at 434.409.0471. Tony will also be your point of contact with Dunn’s Landscaping, so if you have any concerns or questions about this front or side yard service, please contact Tony, not the contractor directly.
