A Resident's Guide to Stonehaven


Welcome to Stonehaven Estates. Our intent here is to acquaint Homeowners and/or Tenants with information about Stonehaven Estates that is intended to ease your transition to your new home in the Stonehaven Estates Community, and to ensure that your experience is as pleasant and rewarding as possible.

Residency Application & Background Checks

The first requirement for perspective residents, be they homeowners or renters, is to submit to a background check for all individuals over the age of 18. No one is permitted to move in without first being approved by the Board of Directors. Residency applications will only be considered by the Board at regularly scheduled monthly board meetings. Applications without completed background reports will not be considered at board meetings and will be delayed until the next board meeting. Board meetings are scheduled on the second Thursday and on the last Friday of every month.
In today's world, it is extremely important to protect our children and ourselves from dangerous individuals. The Board of Directors will either approve or reject requests for residency based upon their review of the background reports. To submit a residency application, fill out and submit the online form located at:

Communications

Our community has its own web page, www.StonehavenEstates.org, email distribution, and a message board periodically posted at the resident entrance. These three forms of communications are regularly used to communicate important information, or information of interest regarding the community affairs. We also, on occasion, distribute flyers or mailings to each home to communicate important information. Sign up for community email at:

Community Meetings

HOA (Home Owner Association) meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Clubhouse from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, and are open to all homeowners. Community business is presented by the Board and the Management Company, followed at approximately 8:00 PM by an open discussion of whatever residents want to discuss. In addition, some board members meet with our property manager the last Friday of each month at the clubhouse from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM, to review project status. All meeting schedules are posted on our Meeting web page.

ARC (Architecture Review Committee) meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Clubhouse from 6:30 PM to 7:00 PM, and are open to all homeowners. Requests for exterior modifications are reviewed to ensure that all exterior changes, i.e. landscaping, pool, screen enclosure, paint color, roof material and color, fences, etc., conform to the esthetics of the community as set forth in the community declarations and rules and regulations. ARC request forms must be submitted for all changes to the exterior of a homeowner’s property. General maintenance of existing exterior does not require approval.
