Belvedere's HOA Announcements



August 29, 2014

Dear Belvedere Property Owners:

As you may know, the Belvedere Municipal Utility District (the "District") is responsible for maintaining the stormwater drainage system within the District. Such maintenance includes the upkeep of the stormwater detention ponds located in common areas and ditches and drainageways located in dedicated easements on lots and common areas and along community streets. As development and construction in Belvedere has increased this past couple of years, some drainageways and ditches on individual lots have been modified, filled in, or otherwise altered so that stormwater flows are impeded during rain events. These alterations include the under sizing of some culverts beneath driveways not installed according to community standards, encroachments from landscaping, retaining walls, construction activity, and other similar items. These alterations, while probably not intended to do so, have a negative impact on our community — one that won't be evident until the day we have that big rain we all are wishing for.

Proper maintenance of community drainage is a significant responsibility undertaken by the District to protect homes and private property during storm events. It is the objective of the Belvedere MUD that everyone understands the need for drainageway compliance and the benefit of a well-managed stormwater drainage system in our community (i.e., our homes and property don't flood in a big rain). Recently the District's Engineer performed an inspection of drainage facilities and identified areas in need of attention and/or remediation. To this end, individual property owners with areas identified on their lots as needing attention will receive individual notice within the next 30 days and specific recommendations for follow up. Too, all home builders in Belvedere will be required to make any changes necessary to become compliant with Belvedere MUD drainage requirements. We look forward to working with these property owners, builders and the community to resolve these issues. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact any of the Board members whose contact information is listed above.

Board of Directors, Belvedere MUD

The Belvedere HOA management company will strictly enforce this important safety policy with fines and penalties for any violations of this wildlife policy.  Any wildlife management policy violation shall result in a $200.00 per day fine for the offending party.  The community management company shall remove any wildlife feeding improvements found on any homesite and/or HOA Nature Preserve land.

Subject: ACC requested rules and regulations

The Belvedere ACC is requesting HOA Board consideration and action related to numerous ACC policies.  The ACC is requesting consideration and action for these policies at the October 16 2012 HOA Board meeting, for immediate implementation.  The HOA is the formal and legal entity authorized to set rules and regulations for Belvedere.

The ACC is requesting these policies would be effective for all ACC submittals which have not achieved final ACC plan review. The purpose of these ACC policies is to enhance our management of the community CCR’s, rules and regulations.

  2. The ACC shall not consider any final new home plan unless the ACC approved custom builder is submitted with the new home plan.
  3. The ACC shall not consider any final new home plan unless the designated ACC approved custom builder attends the ACC final plan review meeting.

  6. The ACC shall not consider any plan submittal if the Owner or Custom Builder has any incomplete or missing McComis inspections, including a Final Inspection and/or a Certificate of Occupancy (CO).

Respectfully submitted,

Joel H. Robuck

May 19, 2012

To: All Belvedere Property Owners
From: Joel H. Robuck, Belvedere HOA
Subject: Pool fencing and 2009 IRC Code Requirement

The Belvedere HOA Board is concerned about the safety of our families, especially our younger children.  Accordingly, we plan to focus on the 2009 IRC pool fencing requirement, which documents the need for a barrier surrounding a pool.

For example, the Belvedere exterior game fence does not meet this 2009 IRC code.  We are requesting McComis Inspections review all existing Belvedere pool fences to ensure we meet this CCR safety code requirement.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  The safety of our families is a high priority!!

Best regards,

Joel H. Robuck
President, Belvedere HOA

Subject: November 2010 Developer Update

Belvedere sales activity.  We continue to make positive progress with Belvedere new home and homesite sales in 2010.  Our 2010 product sales volume is now over $10,000,000 and we have several new home and homesite contracts in the title company for closing this year.  We sincerely appreciate your referrals and positive communications related to our Belvedere community.

We also have eight new home plans in various stages of design and ACC review for new custom homes. 

Belvedere oak wilt management policy.  Because of the significance of preserving our Live Oak trees, our Belvedere HOA oak wilt policy is to disallow any Live Oak tree trimming and/or removal from February 1 to July 1.  This period is the active oak wilt beetle season and we are diligently seeking to preserve our Live Oak trees.  We sincerely appreciate your compliance with this important community policy.

Belvedere HOA meeting schedule.  Our Belvedere HOA meeting schedule is:

The Belvedere ACC meets the first and third Tuesday of each month at 3 PM at the amenity center, if we have plans to review.  Each ACC agenda is placed on the belvedere website and the mail center bulletin board three days before the meeting.  And we are placing ACC Signs on the homesites under consideration.  Any property owner is allowed to attend the meetings and participate in the ACC discussion.

The Belvedere HOA Board meets the third Tuesday of each month at 1 PM at the amenity center.  Any property owner is allowed to attend the meetings and participate in the Board discussion.

Nature Preserve trail repair.  Resulting from the recent heavy rains, we had several erosion problems with our Nature Preserve trail system.  Repairs are in progress and should be complete this month.

Belvedere New Year’s Eve party.  Tracy Miller and her committee are working on the plans for our community New Year’s Eve Party.  Stay tuned for the updates for this fun event.

Thank you very much for your commitment to Belvedere.  We continue to work diligently to achieve excellence with our community.  Your communications are important, so please advise us of your community suggestions.

Subject: Belvedere Community Update

I am delighted to report we continue to make positive progress with our Belvedere community.  Thank you for your commitment to excellence with our community.

Neighborhood Watch Program.  The Belvedere HOA Board has approved the Neighborhood Watch Program for Belvedere.  Thanks to Karen Shultz, we understand and support this community involvement and security program.
We will have our Kick Off Social Party on June 18 2010 at 6.30 PM at the Amenity Center.  All property owners are invited to attend the Party and participate in this important activity.

First Quarter 2010 Sales Results.  In the first quarter of 2010, we sold over $3,800,000 of new homes and homesites.  Our market home inventory has been reduced to two available market homes, and we have approximately six custom homes in the design process.  The second quarter is continuing with this positive sales trend.

Community Directory.  Some residents would like to create a Belvedere community directory.  The purpose of the directory would be to document current contact information for community connections, and not for solicitation purposes.  Your HOA Board encourages your community involvement and participation.  Please call Kim Bigley with Alliance and provide her your contact information if you would like to be included in the Belvedere Directory.

Lazy River.  The Lazy River is now open for the season.  We are working to professionally maintain the Lazy River, and we encourage your maintenance of our community standards.

Live Oak Tree Preservation.  The oak wilt beetle is a continuous preservation consideration and we encourage all property owners to follow best management practices (BMP’s) with our Live Oak trees.  Our Belvedere policy is to refrain from allowing any tree removal or trimming from February 1 to July 1, which is the active oak wilt beetle season.  And the ACC must approve any homesite tree removal and/or trimming before the work is performed.

Best of 2010!!  We are honored and delighted to report Belvedere won the HBA MAX Award for the Best Overall Community (101 to 300 homesites) in 2010, Steve Zbranek was selected as the Custom Builder of the Year, and Tony Holt’s home won Best Custom Home Design ($1,500,000 to $1,750,000).  Thank you for your commitment to excellence, and congratulations to Steve Zbranek and Tony Holt.

Belvedere Questionnaire Feedback.  We are continually working to improve our Belvedere marketing and we are requesting your feedback with the enclosed survey.  Please complete the questionnaire and mail to Carolyn Boden at the address on the bottom of the survey.  Your feedback will assist in the enhancement of our community and our sales results.

Belvedere ACC Action. We continue to experience positive ACC activity, with approximately six custom homes in various design stages.  Bill Brandt is assisting in the ACC decision process, and brings much wisdom to the process.

CCR Management.  Alliance and the Belvedere HOA continue to focus on the community CCR management.  We encourage all property owners to understand and follow the CCR’s, rules and regulations.  CCR compliance shall elevate the overall appearance and ambiance of our community.

Thank you for your commitment to excellence with our Belvedere community.
