Beautiful weather brings many opportunities for summer activities and many Highland residents enjoy summer boating, camping, or exploring in their RV’s or on an ATV. This post is a reminder that the covenants in all of the units equally stipulate in section 3.14 that the “outside storage or parking of any mobile home, trailer (either with or without wheels), motor home, tractor, truck (other than pick-up trucks), commercial vehicles of any type, camper, motorized camper or camper trailer, boat or other watercraft, boat trailer, motorcycle, motorized bicycle, motorized go-cart or any other related forms of transportation devices are expressly prohibited.

Noncompliance with this covenant stipulation will result with Board action.

Please contact the Board if you have any questions about section 3.14 or any other section of the Highland Homeowner’s Covenants, Thank you and enjoy your summer!


As assessments have been recorded, many missing addresses have been identified. Please be advised that all addresses and new owners will be updated this SPRING and additional mailings will be sent in April.

2015 Assessment

Yes, it is that time again, assessments are due and they are in the mail. All checks need to be posted by March 1st, 2015 to avoid late charges.The good news is Dues will remain $60 for the 2015 assessment year!!! Unfortunately, the PAYPAL credit card option will not be available to homeowners this year. We are attempting to establish a "business account" for the HOA, but the previous PAYPAL account was a personal account and cannot be used this year. The new business account will be established by next year so we appreciate your patience.

Dan and Barry then addressed the homeowners about the evening’s election of a new board. The floor was then opened up for nominations. The following homeowners placed their names in nomination and the top three candidates became voting officers. The fourth candidate was asked for her assistance and she has graciously volunteered.

Announcements The Landscaping and Pond Committee, LPC, have decided to contract with Ken's Pond & Lake Management Services Inc. for the 2015 season. All four ponds were treated today. If you live on a pond and would like to receive an email each time the ponds are treated, please forward your name and email to:

Additionally, LPC completed a needs assessment for each of the ponds this week in order to begin a multi-year plan for pond development. Many of the ponds have needs that must be addressed by the HOA, but the committee will develop short and long term rejuvenation plans in order to work within a reasonable budget.

I want to thank the volunteers in our community that have donated their time to the committee this year.
LPC members: John Cryder, Jason Boersma, Sam Studer, Karol Scott and Kelly Manning-Smith.
