Update - March 2020

Annual Update from the HOA President

PLHOA Annual Meeting Summary:

Thanks to everyone that was able to attend the PLHOA Annual meeting. It was nice seeing everyone. A few highlights from that meeting:

All PLHOA boards for the past 15 years were recognized for their stewardship and dedication to PLHOA by ensuring that we ran a surplus budget and were able to build our financial reserves year over year. By doing this, we were able to fund four major projects (rebuild tennis courts, dredge upper lake and fix dam, resurface the pool deck and resurface the inside of the pool) without levying an assessment or taking out any loans. JOB WELL DONE!!

  • For 2019 All PLHOA members are paid in full!!
  • Started the year with $60,000 and ended with approximately $130,000
  • 2020 Budget was Approved.
  • Chris Ensley was voted in as new PLHOA Treasurer. Thanks, Chris. Thank you to Spalding for your dedication as the PLHOA Treasurer for the past several years and taking the Non-resident board position.
  • We will change the Membership board position to CPO (Chief Pig Officer). The CPO will be responsible for coordinating major PLHOA events (Pig Roast and 4th July).

PLHOA Project completed in 2019:

  • Replaced Tennis Court Benches
  • Replaced Pool Chairs
  • Replaced Clubhouse Furniture
  • Built new path across the upper dam
  • Mulch was installed along Princeton Lakes Drive and around the Clubhouse
  • The fence was cleaned and painted

PLHOA Completed Projects for 2020:

  • Planted new tree and grass by the main pool entrance

2020 Proposed Projects:

  • Purchasing a smoker for the neighborhood
  • Replacing the iron plates used at the pig roast with a permanent structure
  • Sodding the dam
  • Improving the appearance of the corner of the north side of Princeton Lakes Drive and Johnson Ferry Road
  • Install a retaining wall alongside the sidewalk adjacent to the play structure to prevent further erosion
  • Improvement of the trash enclosure
  • Maintenance of the rock path that connects the dam to Karls Gate Drive

With the recent COVID-19 news the following changes:

  • All clubhouse rentals will be canceled until April 15. This date will probably change.
  • The PLHA Board recommends not playing on the playset until the Cobb county shelter in place mandate is lifted.

Pool opening:

The pool will open as soon as possible. The PLHOA board is in constant communication with Riverside, our property management company and Swim Atlanta. Swim Atlanta is currently running a skeleton staff. They will be preparing pools for opening on a lottery system. We do not have a date as to when Swim Atlanta will be on-site to remove pool cover and start the opening process. The board will send out more information when it becomes available.

As events unfold, the board will communicate with Members via Facebook and email. If you have not already done so, please join the Princeton Lakes Facebook group and add yourself to the member directory. This is the source for all of the neighborhood emails.
