Postal Service - First Class Mail Delivery Changes

Recent information was received from the Postal Regulatory Commission that may impact delivery time expectations, and we wanted to bring this to your attention. Starting October 1, 2021, the Postal Service will be changing the timelines to its’ first-class mail. Instead of a 1-3-day guarantee, they are moving to 1-5-day guarantee, with an estimate of 70% to remain in that 1-3-day window. Since this is how most BANKPAY (or as some banks call it Bill Pay) checks are sent to our lockbox for your HOA payments, this may impact many homeowners.  If you are concerned regarding delays, we are recommending that you consider moving up your BankPay or Bill pay date or switch to our resident portal payment method to avoid any unfortunate incidents.

Community Fall Festival Reminder!

Don’t miss our Community Fall Festival this Saturday, October 16th, from 11am to 2pm at the Amerige Heights Clubhouse. There will be many fun family activities, including light snacks for everyone to enjoy and other fun surprises. Pumpkins will be given to kids for decorating on a first come, first served basis; come out early and get your free pumpkin while they last!

Attendance is free, but we ask that you please pick-up your tickets at the Clubhouse so we have an idea of how many of our residents might be attending. Management is at the Clubhouse on Wednesdays from 1pm to 5pm and Fridays from 9am to 1pm, (unless there’s a scheduled clubhouse reservation).


Internet Service Update – Continued

The Amerige Heights Board of Directors is currently looking into options to improve the community’s internet network and services. We are planning to conduct survey work from Monday, September 27th through Friday, October 1st to have a better understanding of each street, common areas, and utility areas.  

Residents will not be impacted by the survey work. You may periodically see surveyors with vests, hard hats, and other equipment on your street. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of the team members or email the Amerige Heights Internet Committee at amerigeheights.ic@gmail.com.  As we continue to explore internet upgrades, regular updates will be provided in the upcoming months.


Internet Service Update

The Amerige Heights Internet Committee (AHIC) has narrowed down its search to (2) internet providers. Before a final decision can be made, a survey of the current Amerige Heights fiber optic infrastructure must be performed. The Board of Directors for the Master association and the 4 Sub-Associations (GalleryWalk, PlazaWalk, Radcillfe and StudioWalk) have recently given approval for the infrastructure survey to commence.

Once the results of the infrastructure survey have been presented to the Board of Directors in September, the AHIC will schedule multiple Q&A sessions (at the Clubhouse & over Zoom) to update the residents.  We will also post our monthly updates on the amerigeheights.org website. 

The goal of the AHIC is to find an ISP that will future-proof our aging fiber optic network while providing network stability and excellent customer service.  1 Gbps speeds will be the default for all residents at no additional cost once we move forward with the project. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the AHIC by emailing them at amerigeheights.ic@gmail.com


Landscape/Tree Maintenance

Curb appeal is important to homeowners because of the impact on property values and the pleasing appearance.  Yard work can be a very rewarding experience.  The key is not to let things get out of control, so please inspect your turf regularly and take the steps necessary to eliminate the weeds.

Additionally, Management continues to receive reports of overgrown trees encroaching onto homeowner yards that are not being maintained.  Tree Maintenance is not only for curb appeal; rodents may nest on overgrown trees/palms, so it is important to inspect your trees regularly and maintain when needed.


Board Meeting Rescheduled

Tonight’s scheduled Board of Director’s meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at 6:30pm. We apologize in advanced to any member that had made plans to attend the meeting. Please join us to discuss any Association related topic.


Exterior Paint Maintenance

As some of you have already noticed, the Association recently began to send induvial notices to residents requesting that the exterior of their homes be re-painted. Not all notices have been sent, as we felt that the project would be better managed by breaking up the community into 5-6 sections to monitor the project closer. More homes are being evaluated and notices to the remaining homes are expected to be mailed shortly. If you haven’t already re-painted the exterior of your home, please begin to prepare. Our community is now approximately 17 years old and we want to ensure the neighborhood of Amerige Heights maintains its appeal and beauty by ensuring homes are maintained and always looking their best.  To maintain the aesthetic integrity of the community it is important that the painting of your home occurs within a reasonable amount of time.

The Design Review Guidelines allow you to repaint with the existing colors without having to submit an application for approval.  The existing color schemes cannot be changed, so if you do not have the color schemes from the Builder, it is your responsibility to match the colors as close as possible.

We all know the importance of maintaining the community, not only to keep Amerige Heights a wonderful place to live, but also to enhance the value of the community as a whole.


Mulch Application

Please be aware that in the coming weeks, Park West Landscape will begin to apply mulch throughout the Amerige Heights community. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Management at (800) 400-2284.


Board Meeting Rescheduled

Tonight’s scheduled Board of Director’s meeting has been rescheduled for next week, Monday, May 10, 2021 at 6:30pm. We apologize in advanced to any member that had made plans to attend the meeting. Please join us next Monday to discuss any Association related topic.


ALERT!!! Suspicious Activity & Vandalism Reported

The Board of Directors have recently received reports of a transient man loitering in the Standard Pacific Homes section of the Amerige Heights Community. The male has been seen acting in an unusual manner, and has recently been described as potentially threatening residents in the area. This notice is an ALERT for residents in the area to be mindful of their surroundings and to take all precautions available to stay safe. Should you see a person who matches this description, or any person acting suspiciously, please report to Fullerton PD immediately.

Often times, residents fail to report petty crimes to PD, thinking that some acts of vandalism are “too small” to report to the police.  This is certainly not the case, according to local law enforcement. The local police department is tasked with protecting law-abiding citizens from criminal activity. Crime prevention is important; equally important is that criminals face consequences for their actions. This can only be accomplished through resident reports to the proper authorities. Police can only respond to crimes that are reported, and they utilize reports from residents to potentially increase patrol in high-crime areas.   At minimum, timely reporting can allow the police to increase presence in the area to protect your neighbors and prevent your location from being hit again.

Unfortunately, even with taking precaution, there is no guarantee that burglary or other crime will not occur. It is always important to be aware of your surroundings and to report suspicious activity. Suspicious activity can be anything that seems unusual, such as: people lurking around homes, hiding from passing traffic, or trying to open/unlock doors or windows. Call 911 immediately if you are witness to any of the aforementioned activity. “See something, say something!”

Our office has already alerted the Association patrol vendor and have asked that they make more frequent passes in this area. While this communication is sent to residents as a courtesy on behalf of the Board of Directors, please be reminded that owners are ultimately responsible for their own personal safety and belongings. While increased vigilance on behalf of patrol may potentially deter crime, the police department is the appropriate point of contact should you encounter a crime in progress.
