FAQs

I never got a statement! What happened?

1st quarter statements were mailed to the entire community in November of 2019. If yours did not arrive, you can always log into the Owner Portal and check your balance. No statement is required to make a payment. Don't have access to the Owner Portal? Don't know what that is? Send an email to melissa@kithmanagement.com and she'll tell you all about it!

Can I pay my HOA bill online?

Yes you can! You may initiate an automatic payment (ACH/E-Check) to have your payment automatically drafted directly from your bank account on a recurring basis or for a one-time payment. There is NO CHARGE for this service and it eliminates the need to schedule and mail checks. You will need your account number, the Management Company ID, and the Association ID. See below:


  • Management Company ID - 7405
  • Association ID - WPMC

Friendly Reminders

Is this your yard?


Your neighbors will appreciate your efforts to keep these weeds out of the neighborhood. Not only are they unsightly, but the seeds spread to everyone else’s lawn as well!


Every garden has its share of weeds, insects and diseases but of the three, weeds seem to require the greatest amount of work. These sneaky culprits are quickly working their way into home landscapes all over the city and surrounding areas. The cause? Wet winter and some warm temperatures over the past few months. They seem to creep in overnight and grow “like weeds”! The seeds of these plants have been lurking in the top of the soils beneath your lawn grasses since last season. They have just been waiting to pop up and pop they have! Weeds that have gone to seed are a nuisance. It is important to remove or mow these weeds before they go to seed. If the weeds flower and seed, you will see an even larger crop next year. A bit of work each week will keep them under control. The key to eliminating weeds is to deprive them of light, nutrients and water. You can do this by hoeing or hand weeding young, undesirable plants, applying mulch barriers to suppress light, and using drip irrigation to water your plants and not the weeds. Another method of control is to have a service treat your lawn quarterly to keep these pests under control. This is easy and very cost effective.


Please begin taking measures to apply weed treatment to your lawn. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Don't Forget the Fence!

Now is the time to start evaluating the stain on your fence! Does your fence need a fresh coat of stain? Any part of your fence that faces the street must be maintained at all times. The fence stain permitted in the design guidelines is Behr #501 semi-transparent cedar tone. However, Behr changed the product name to #533 Cedar Natural Tone Semi Transparent. This stain is readily available at your local hardware stores. There is no need to submit for architectural approval if you are using the pre-approved stain. If you wish to use a stain from another provider that “matches” you will be required to submit a request form that includes a color image of your proposed stain.

Trashcans

Other than your scheduled pickup day, all trashcans and recycling bins must be stored either inside your garage or behind your fence in such a manner that they are not visible. Storing your trash cans in the front of your house is not an option!
