CCR Items
Posted on Apr 12th, 2018
Just a reminder our association is over 1700 properties and as the season changes more folks want to get on their projects as soon as possible that require permits, please understand that permitting is not the only responsibility of the CCR office but so is enforcement, property transfers, new builds, inspections and more, so please practice some patience when seeking your permit.  Projects and their permitting make take up to five working days from the time your application is received in the office to be reviewed. 
Wildfire Season
Posted on Apr 11th, 2018
Wildfire season is starting a month early this year based on the area's dryness.  There were four fires just yesterday (April 10).  PLA spoke with Fire Chief Morgan and he STRONGLY recommends that property owners with homes on them clear the yard to bare cover at a minimum of 0-5 feet from your home...firewood, lumber, etc....this is called the "Immediate Zone".  
 
Properties without homes on them should still be maintained as well minimizing the pine needles and leaves. All properties with dead trees and dead limbs should have those items removed from the property.
 
Below are some excerpts from a recent article from the White Mountain Independent highlighting a meeting Chief Morgan had with the Town's Council.  While we are not in the town's boundaries this is helpful information.
 
"Reducing hazardous fuels on properties around Pinetop-Lakeside has become the priority as fire season seems to be arriving earlier each year...."
 
"Getting rid of thick fuels on the forest floor."
 
 “We are not asking residents to clear-cut or anything like that. This is just for reduction, because these micro-forests are unhealthy. Today we have four White Mountain communities that have had their HOA’s commit to the Firewise designation and hopefully we’ll soon be adding another on July 21st.”
 
Please take care of your properties for all of us.
Amenities Access Reminder
Posted on Mar 9th, 2018

Pinetop Lakes Association (PLA) is a private, members only, homeowner’s association.

Your association and its amenities are becoming quite popular.  There were 120 property sales in the association in 2017.  As many of you know the boundaries of PLA have some interesting pockets, as a result some folks simply just walk in off the street and say, “We’re here”, and think they are on their way to the pool and of course that is not the case.  Also, sadly we have members tell friends “assume member’s identity” and attempt to use the amenities.  We also have had people say “I am a guest of…” although that member is not with them or they had come in with a member previously and try to come in by suggesting that gives them carte blanche to come in any time; of course not.  There are other ways people try to enter and without a doubt people have had success entering when they do not have the privilege to do so.

Therefore, access of individuals will be more scrutinized.  This is to ensure the people who have the privilege to enter the amenities get to and those that don’t, cannot.

  • Everyone who wishes to enter the recreation center must have their ID to show to staff at all times or your access may be denied.  You must check in at the front desk before moving onto your activity regardless how many people are in front of you waiting to do the same.
  • Remember if a member has a CCR violation, an account balance, etc…access will be denied to the amenities for any person associated with that property until the member handles the respective matter.
  • Remember, guest passes and the additional six list are items PLA has added to be more member friendly, but are not an obligation to be provided.

This is a private facility. Members pay annual dues to have access, not friends, not co-workers, etc…nobody enters without approval of PLA.   Even members who have been coming in and out of the recreation center for years need to have their ID ready to show.  Members, there is a very good chance some staff may ask for your ID while others don’t, that is based on staff first-hand experience and knowledge, not member comments.  Also, a reminder to members with their own fitness center cards; it is yours to use, not a co-worker, friend, etc.  Even if you are just going to the fitness center have an ID handy in the event staff spot-checks who is in our private facility.  PLA can and will turn your card off if it is being used by a non-member.  You will not get it back and you will not receive a refund.  You are putting at risk your access to our amenities by not abiding by the guidelines.

A second item related to the information above is PLA members bringing guests to our amenities.  While it is okay for members to do so, if another member’s ability to participate in an activity is hindered because non-members are taking up slots…pickleball, pool, tennis, etc… who do you think will be denied access or asked to leave our amenities?  Not PLA members.

  • Members bringing guests to our amenities must remain with their guests throughout their guest's time on site.  You are responsible for your guest(s).

Should there be issues with these items or related in nature, member access may be denied, fitness center card revoked, restrict guest access and more.  Ignorance of the guidelines is not an excuse.

We are all very proud of this place and work hard to keep it a place that 120 families want to buy properties in your association.  Help us keep it that way, be prepared with your IDs and follow the guidelines that you legally agreed to upon becoming an owner/member of Pinetop Lakes Association.
