June 2018

Note from the President


Summer is in full swing at Princeton Lakes! The pool has opened and is looking great, Stephen Patrick worked hard to get this entire project completed on time and on budget. Erin Searles and Christy Jones are excited to share their plans for refreshing our summer TGIF parties, information below. We would love to see old and new faces at the Board sponsored TGIF this Friday, June 1st!

I would also like to take the time to thank everyone who has volunteered in our community project days which included a little bit of everything, from painting the fences, tree trimming and clearing, putting out mulch to putting together picnic tables – not only does it improve the appearance of our neighborhood, it also has saved thousands of dollars! Thanks to Phil Laney for organizing our latest community service day!

Lastly, I would like to thank Carolyn Cooper for doing a fantastic job on improving our neighborhood communications and Jim Skinner for all that he has done for the neighborhood. Jim is very instrumental in everything that gets done in the neighborhood always the first to volunteer his time and making sure things run smoothly.

As always if you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.

HOA Annual Dues

Invoices for the Annual HOA dues were mailed out directly from Riverside Property Management to all Princeton Lakes HOA members at the end of February. If you are a non-resident member (i.e. Lake Fjord) and did not receive an invoice to renew your membership, please email

Please note that HOA dues were due by April 1st and incurred a late fee if they were not paid by April 30th! Please make payment today to Riverside Property Management to remain in good standing. Access to neighborhood facilities and social events will be denied to members that are not in good standing.

The HOA dues did increase by 3% this year, so please make sure that you are paying the correct amount.

Contact if you have any questions about your standing.

Mark your calendars - Social events!

Summer is is finally here and the Social Committee has some fun events scheduled!

Friday, June 1st: The PLHOA Board will kick off the summer this Friday, June 1st from 6:30-9:30 p.m. with a cook out! We'll grill burgers and dogs and serve up some sides & dessert. This one is free of charge - just BYOB!

Friday, June 8th, 5:00-8:00 p.m.: Introducing Food Truck Fridays! This is a new take on "TGIF" where we'll bring a different Food Truck to the clubhouse each week.

It's more than just hot dogs ~ check out their menu here:

Friday, June 15th, 5:00-8:00 p.m.: Our next food truck will be C-Bo's BBQ & Southern Cuisine. This one has a hefty minimum charge, so bring some friends and spread the word to your neighbors to come enjoy great food and fun!
