FAIRHARBOR TO BE A GATED COMMUNITY ...
The Board has agreed to install automatic gates at both entrances to the community. This decision was made for two main reasons:
Security - Over the last several years, Fairharbor has unwillingly become an overflow parking lot for the Dublin Deck. Despite the merchant's efforts of providing security on the weekends, the problem continues to grow and create an inconvenience and security issue for Fairharbor's residents. Automated gates will immediately eradicate this ongoing problem.
Property Values - Communities with automated access gates, also known as "Gated Communities," command higher resale prices and retain their values better. Installing automated gates will increase your investment and widen the market for potential buyers now and in the future.
The automated parking gates will allow all shareholders and invited guests to enter the property effortlessly at all times. Construction will begin in November and take approximately three weeks to complete. The proper use and functions of the gates will be provided prior to operation. There will be no out of pocket expense to the shareholders for this community improvement.
We would like to think common courtesy would be enough in matters of pet waste. However, since that doesn't seem to be enough for everyone, the House Rules mandate that everyone walk their dogs only in the designated dog walk area (or off-site). Further, dog walkers are required to pick-up their pet's waste not only in the dog walk area, but also anywhere on the property if your pet has an accident. Bags are provided for your convenience. Thank you for your cooperation!
In an effort to further communication and involve shareholders, the Board of Directors will begin utilizing a suggestion box. It is located at the mailbox kiosk on the SW side and labeled. The Board appreciates any helpful suggestions to enhance our community. We ask that any ideas also include possible solutions. We also ask that suggestions be signed so that we can contact you with any questions. Unsigned comments will not be considered. Thank you.

No items, e.g., planters, may be adhered to or placed upon the balcony railings at any time. At no time shall more than two persons be permitted use of any balcony.
On a previous inspection of the property, it has been noted that mops, brooms, statues, empty planters, bicycle pumps, bicycles, coolers, beach chairs and laundry have been left out on the balconies and patios. Although balconies are considered private, patios are common areas for all shareholders and should not be used for storage.
8. COMMON AREAS
8.6 Children shall not play on the dock area or in the public halls, stairways, laundry room or parking lots.
Not only has the comfort and lifestyle of our quiet community been compromised, but from a risk management point of view the lives and safety of our children is at risk. Please speak with your children about the dangers of playing anywhere in the vicinity of traffic.
8.10 Outdoor cooking (grilling, etc.) is prohibited in all areas of the property, including but not limited to balconies, decks and patios, with the sole exception of picnic/ patio area located at the southwest corner of the property. Outdoor grills of any type may not be stored including but not limited to, balconies, decks and patios.
MAJOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS
As you are probably already aware, Fairharbor has benefitted from many Major Capital Improvements during recent years, none of which resulted in special assessments for our shareholders. These include new roofs, gutters and leaders, completely new paved surfaces (parking lot, sidewalks, curbs), a new laundry room and more.
In the interest of bettering our community, we have made several more improvements over the last few years.
