Thank you to these five volunteers who are willing to expend their time and energy to further the best interests of the Piney-Z neighborhood.
Change to Mowing Schedule in Piney-Z
Due to the extreme weather we are experiencing in Tallahassee, the HOA Board of Directors has given permission to John Hurst to begin mowing within the neighborhood at 7am, in order to give his workers some respite from the very high temperatures. We have asked that they begin in some of the common areas, and the roundabouts, before they mow areas close to homes. However, at that time in the morning, the mowers will probably still be heard by some residents who may reside close by.
Hurst and his men will also be allowed to begin “quiet” work such as weeding, at sunrise. They will go back to normal hours, after the heat has dissipated, later in the season.
We know there may be some residents who are not happy with this short-term arrangement, but we ask you to be mindful of the safety and health of the people who must work in this heat and humidity all day long.
City of Tallahassee Leash Law
We would like to remind our residents that the City of Tallahassee has a leash law which reads:
Section 4103. Animals at large. (a) The owner or custodian of an animal shall prevent such animal from running or remaining at large on any public street, road, alley, park or other public space.
If you walk your dog in Piney-Z, it should be on a leash in order to not cause another resident to become fearful of walking, biking, running, etc. while the dog is loose. If you would like your dog to run without a leash, please use the Off-Leash Dog Runs in Tom Brown Park.
If you see a dog that is unattended and off-leash, you must call Tallahassee Animal Services at (850) 891-2950 to report the problem.
Exercise Classes at the Lodge
Looking for a convenient exercise location? FUNctional Fitness classes are currently happening in the lodge and at 8:00AM and . Classes cost $5 each. Please bring a mat and 3 lbs or 5 lbs weights. For more details please contact Laura Kitchens at email@example.com
Trash Can Storage
The covenants require trash cans to be stored so that they cannot be seen from the street. Many homes are not in compliance. If you store your cans on the side of the house, they must be in an enclosure to prevent viewing from the street.
Street Light Outages
The City of Tallahassee has requested that a person living near the street light outage report it to the city. To report an outage, please call the City at 891-4968.
Doggone It--Your Neighbors Want Consideration
We still get regular complaints from Piney-Z residents about other residents allowing their dogs to leave their droppings in their yards. No one wants dog droppings in their yard or in front of their mailbox. So, what is the proper thing to do when you walk your dog.
The HOA and CDD staff, Boards, or Committees cannot be involved with concerns or actual disputes between residents over dog droppings, barking dogs, escaped pets and such. We can only advise you to discuss it with your neighbor, call animal control, or perhaps even the health department if you are tired of finding dog waste on your property.
Tree and Limb Issues
Approval for Planting or Removing Trees—The Covenants and Restrictions dictate the rules and conditions related to tree planting or removal. To receive approval for tree planting or removal, contact Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Contact information is on the committee page. The ACC is a committee of the HOA.
Concern about a Tree or Limbs Hanging Over Your Home or Property—The CDD and HOA do not provide tree cutting services for Piney-Z residents or property owners who have concerns about trees or limbs. Trees in HOA Common Areas that have limbs hanging over a resident's property or home will rarely be removed. This was discussed and researched in 2003. It was determined that the owner of the tree does not bear the responsibility for trimming branches that overhang someone else's property, but the homeowner has the right to protect their property by having the tree limbs removed at their cost. Homeowners wishing to cut limbs or remove trees at their expense should consult with the ACC committee to determine if their plan complies with the Covenants and Restrictions, and to ensure that trees are not cut without cause. CDD Board research indicates that this is consistent with Florida law and City of Tallahassee policy.
