WEBSITE UPGRADES - ACTION NEEDED!
Posted on Feb 1st, 2017
This week, Fallsmead.org was upgraded to a new version of the software that runs the website. Although most of the website still looks exactly the same, there are major changes to the Online Neighborhood Directory and in your personal "Your Profile" section:
  • Household users are now tied together through a levels system. Level 1 Members are the first members from each household to sign up for a fallsmead.org account. Level 2 Members are usually spouses, but can also include other adults who live in the same household. Level 3 Members are children who live in the household.
  •  ALL ADULT LEVEL 1 AND LEVEL 2 HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS NOW HAVE THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS as long as they are listed in the system and they have an email address in the system.
  • You can now pick and choose which individual fields you want to display for each member of your household who is listed in the online directory.
  • You can now add a profile picture for each member of your household.
Some of the changes that were made during the system upgrade require action on your part to make sure the transition from the old system to the new system was successful. PLEASE LOG IN TO YOUR FALLSMEAD.ORG ACCOUNT AND DO THE FOLLOWING (if you do not know your password, we will be sending everyone in the system a password reminder – this is also great for Level 2 users who have not used their new accounts yet!):

NEW SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
Posted on Jun 15th, 2016
If you have attended a recent community meeting or have read the Fallsmead Forum, you know that the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) has been drafting guidelines for solar panel installations in the Fallsmead. The ACC's proposed guidelines, published in the last issue of the on-line Forum for community review and comment, were approved by the Board at its June meeting and are effective immediately. The guidelines comply with federal, state and local regulations and will be updated as those and the technology evolve. Similar guidelines have been successfully used in nearby communities.
 
A solar panel installation is an exterior addition as defined in the Covenants. Fallsmead residents should be aware that the ACC will use these guidelines in its review of any proposed solar panel installations. The guidelines should be  taken into account early in the planning of any installation. The ACC will work cooperatively with residents planning solar panel installations so that those installations are safe, minimize visibility to the extent practical without degrading performance significantly, and harmonious with Fallsmead's design and aesthetic.
 
Click here to see a copy of the guidelines. If you have any questions about the solar panel installation guidelines or their applicability, please contact the ACC at acc@fallsmead.org.
UPDATED TRASH CAN SCREEN GUIDELINES
Posted on May 11th, 2016
The Fallsmead Board has approved new ACC guidelines for trash can screens. The updated guidelines are noted below.
 
"Screens to hide trash and recycling containers are permitted subject to the following: 
  • The design, color, size and location are subject to review by the ACC. A gate may be incorporated into the design.
  • Screens may be made of wood or other suitable material in harmony with the Fallsmead community.
  • Screens may be left unpainted to weather or painted to match or complement the Owner’s Private Dwelling Unit.
  • The screen’s height shall not exceed four feet."
Visit the FAQ and Resident's Info page to see more information about the proper storage of trash cans in Fallsmead.

WEBSITE REGISTRATION PROBLEMS?
Posted on Sep 15th, 2013
If you registered at Fallsmead.org and never heard back from anyone, please let us know at communications@fallsmead.org! Once we manually approve people (which we usually do within a few hours of people registering), the website automatically generates an email that includes your password.  You should have gotten this email within 24 hours of registering.

We suspect that some of these registration emails may have gotten lost in spam for some people, but this is something that we can easily fix as long as you let us know that it is a problem.

For any future registrants, if you don't hear back within 24 hours of registering, please let us know. Thanks!
