ANNUAL FALLSMEAD SPRING INSPECTIONS
Posted on Jun 17th, 2019
Dear Neighbors,
 
The  Architectural Control Committee completed the 2019 Spring Inspection in May. Exterior Maintenance Notices are now in the mail and will arrive shortly. Mildew on brick and siding; deteriorated driveways, faded shutters; and improperly stored (e.g. visible) trash cans were among the most frequently noted exterior maintenance issues. The ACC also noted three residences with unapproved structural changes and will evaluate these for potential Covenant violations in the next few weeks.
 
Thank you for cooperation in making repairs and improvements where needed and helping to keep Fallsmead an attractive and desirable neighborhood.

SOCIAL COMMITTEE NEEDS YOU!!
Posted on May 24th, 2019
The heart of our community is the relationships we have with our neighbors. Our community social events facilitate these relationships. But, these events need to be planned and executed, and we need your help. Without your help, these events simply can’t happen.
 
So it is up to you, neighbors, to make sure that we have amazing events and opportunities to connect with each other – whether celebrating the pool opening, July 4th, Halloween, or pool parties.
 
To make sure that we have these events, I need you to volunteer to plan an event.
 
Please contact me to let me know which event you want to work on. The time commitment is minimal overall.
 
Best part of taking lead on a project - you can have creative license and we’ve even developed tools to make it easier for you to pull off.
 
Which event is the one you want?
  • Pool Opening Party
  • July 4th – in coordination with the swim team
  • Summer Happy Hours by the pool
  • Fall Party & Halloween Parade (aka community cookout or campfire)
  • Winter party for kids (aka Santa in the Park)
  • Winter Party for adults
  • House decorating contests – Halloween & Christmas
Contact me at 410-627-8264 or social@fallsmead.org or lauragab26@gmail.com.

NEIGHBORHOOD HOME SALES
Posted on May 1st, 2019
Current residents, if you are planning on selling your home, there are two things you need to do: 1) contact our neighborhood treasurer, Jeff Cornish, at treasurer@fallsmead.org for the packet of official Homeowners Association Resale Documents; and 2) obtain a resales clearance from the Architectural Control Committee. The fee for the HOA resale documents is $100 and can be paid via check or online. Click here for more information about each of these requirements (in the Finance section of the FAQs).

If you are a new Fallsmead homeowner and haven't received your new homeowner's welcome packet, please also be sure to contact our Board Treasurer and he will get it to you.

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.
