Forest for the Trees

It’s been a busy end of summer and early fall around Heritage Meadows with a total of 106 dead, or dying, trees being removed. These trees in many cases were affected by bugs and or old age. Old age? Yes, old age… Many of the trees originally planted on our property had fairly short life spans and have run their course. As we look to 2018 and the replacement of these trees we will be focusing on increased tree diversity and life spans, both of which are positive for sustainability.

Our parkway trees have also been getting some love from the Village of Plainfield, as part of their regular five year maintenance plan. We will be keeping an eye on the progress to make sure our whole community gets this much needed maintenance.

We will continue to update you on projects within our community as they happen. If you have questions, comments, or concerns do not hesitate to contact us thru Robyn Braun at 847-882-2365 or via email at robyn.braun@associa.us.

Board Meeting

Markimageedit_1_8755328688 your calendars for May 23, 2017, 7:00pm, when the Board will be having their quarterly meeting at the Christ Community Church of Plainfield, 12410 Van Dyke Road, Plainfield.  The Board will be meeting in Executive Session at 6:00 p.m. to discuss matters with the Association’s attorney.

We hope you are all enjoying spring now that it has finally come in. The Board is working diligently to get landscape and monument projects underway for all to enjoy.

You will soon notice the monument entrance signs being painted and dead trees removal has already started. More is planned and tree replacement will be a topic discussed at this meeting.

The Board is working on renovating the landscaping at the monument signs and lighting at 127th, 119th and Pasquinelli Drive.  There is no electric service at the 127th or 119th Street entrances, so we are looking into solar lighting options for those areas.

We have a homeowner currently investigating the Neighborhood Scoops program sponsored by the Plainfield Police Department.  If and when our community is chosen for this cool program scheduled information will be posted on your community page. Its also our understanding that a neighborhood garage sale is being planned, as information becomes available you can again look to our community page for all the latest.

At the last Board meeting the Board discussed a collection policy to put into place so the homeowners are all aware of the policy when assessments are not made. The basics of the policy are as follows:

  • January 1st – Assessments are due.
  • March 14th – Demand letter is sent to the owner.
  • May 19th – Account is turned over to the Association’s attorney for collection.

**Any fees that are associated with the collection of assessments are the responsibility of the homeowner.

This policy will be discussed and approved at the May 23rd meeting, it will then be mailed to all homeowners and posted to your community page for future reference.

How can you pay your assessments? You can mail them in.  You can pay them via credit card, or electronic check.  Go to www.associachicagoland.com and follow the prompts.
