While We’re Talking About The Pool…..

A recently released memo issued by the HOA had this to say about the upcoming pool season:

During last year’s pool season we had several problems with the residents not adhering to the pool’s area rules. Some of the violations included: bringing alcoholic beverages disguised as colas or tea, wearing cut-offs and tee-shirts instead of swimming suits, using nail polish while on the deck, refusing to wear the required identifications bracelets, playing loud music to the annoyance of others, using inappropriate language and ignoring the Pool Monitor’s requests, to name a few. Please be aware, and make your tenants aware, that the pool is private property and that the HOA will NOT tolerate any infraction whatsoever. Anyone refusing to abide by the Rules will be banned from the facilities for the entire season, and the Police will be called if necessary.

A copy of the Pinegrove Pool Rules and Regulations can be FOUND HERE.

Pool Renonvations Underway

Renovations are planned to resume on the pool deck as soon as weather permits. The process of re-surfacing the area around the pool has been underway for several months. Poor weather conditions and unexpected repairs have lengthened the expected time frame; however, all work is expected to be done in time for the Pool to open around it’s usual time.

More information will be posted here as it becomes available. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Tim Chestnut.

Pinegrove Paint Job

Pinegrove has finally gotten a new paint job. The final brush strokes came in the Fall, as some last second repairs and touch-ups were necessary. While the idea of such a change as been talked about for over a decade, it took the HOA until last year to finally get the job completed. Initial response has been positive, as most people believe it lightens up the area.

Yard Sale Rules and Regulations

Spring is right around the corner and with it comes good Yard Sale weather. Whether it’s a moving sale or Spring cleaning, a Yard Sale is a good way to make money from those things you no longer want in your home. Yard Sales are allowed within Pinegrove; however, there are a few small guidelines that need to be observed.

* Date and Time. You will need to inform either Tim Chestnut or HOA board member of your planned date and time. This will allow them to arrange for someone to open and close the front gate during the times of your event. In some rare instances, the HOA may have a conflict with the date, but this is usually due to a Property wide event already being planned. This could be something like paving the driveway or having the Yard Crew out. Things of this nature don’t happen very often, but by letting the HOA/Tim know, you can cut down on any conflicts.

*Tables / Displays. You will responsible for your own tables, displays, and setups. Unfortunately, Pinegrove does not have these sorts of items on hand for loan. The use of any tables or chairs from the pool area is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.

*Advertising. Signs are allowed to be placed; however, the use of nails on any wooden surface is prohibited. Tape or straps are allowed. You are responsible for learning and adhering to any and all City sign ordinances. Pinegrove is not responsible for any signs that are removed by the City of Myrtle Beach.

*Post Sale. You are responsible for all clean up and trash removal in the area effected by your event. Please do not throw away large amounts of items that simply did not sell. Local charities or aid groups can use these items. Piles of debris or a clogged dumpster is something we cannot use.

If you have any questions, contact Tim and he can walk you through the process.

As far as preparing for your yard sale:

* Make sure you plan for a back-up date, just in case of bad weather on your first choice. Some people plan to avoid holiday weekends, while others prefer to have their Yard Sale while large numbers of tourists are in town. There is no one correct answer.

* Advertise. Use various methods to advertise your sale. Social media is a real big deal now. Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, and all the others can be a fantastic tool to get the word out. Don’t forget your local paper. There are a large number of people who still use the local weekend edition of the paper to find Yard Sales. It does cost money to have your ad listed, but it can pay off in the long run.

* Signs. Signs are fantastic to place, but be very careful where you hang them. The City of Myrtle Beach has very strict rules on what and where a sign can be placed. Standard sized paper ads in the local stores and on bulletin boards is a very good idea as well.

* Display Your Clothes. Make sure to wash and fold any clothes that you may have for sale. Try to keep same sizes together.

* Boxes. If something is in a box, you may want to take the item out and place it beside the box. People will sometimes over look an item rather than open a box. Furthermore, you don’t want your box to become damaged just because a lot of people handled it throughout the day.

* Change. Make sure you have plenty of small bills and/or coins to make change for a purchase. Plan ahead. Get extra $1′s and $5′s.

* Start Early. The early bird gets the worm and that especially applies to a Yard Sale. Most of the dedicated crowd will be out at Sunrise. You will most likely see most of your people within the first 3 hours after the Sun comes up.

Hope this information helps when you are planning your next Yard Sale.

A Word On Trespassing

No Trespassing

Trespassing is a serious offense and Pinegrove property is no exception. Trespassing can come in many forms and Pinegrove has a Zero Tolerance Policy. Below are a few examples of trespassing:

Swimming Pool:

    Entering the swimming pool WITHOUT HOA ISSUED TAGS is considered trespassing. While first time offenders are often simply asked to leave, repeat offenders face fines and possible Police involvement.

    Entering the swimming area AFTER HOURS or when the POOL IS CLOSED is also considered trespassing. Doing so constitutes not only a safety hazard, but a Disturbance of the Peace. First time offenders face possible fines, but can also be subject to Police involvement depending on the time and situation. PLEASE NOTE: Fines can be issued on a PER PERSON basis. If five people are in the pool while it is closed, EACH PERSON will be issued a fine that the unit owner / resident will be responsible for.

Front Gate:

    Following a car through the gate is actually considered Trespassing. Each car is required by HOA rules to stop at the Entrance and use their card, key clicker, or call a resident to let them in. Cars that tailgate and follow someone in may be struck by the closing gate. Pinegrove IS NOT responsible for any damage done to a car that has not followed this procedure. Pinegrove WILL PROSECUTE and REQUIRE the driver and/or resident to pay for any damages done to the gate.

    Entering through the Exit gate is also considered Trespassing and falls under the Zero Tolerance category. Cars attempting to enter the property by such means will be IMMEDIATELY fined and face possible Police involvement. Any damage done to the gate will be the sole responsibility of the driver and/or resident.

Each of the above situations will be handled on a per case basis; however, it is better to simply FOLLOW THE RULES rather than take your chances. The Front Gate and Pool areas are under 24 hour camera surveillance as well as monitored by the HOA on a personal basis. The Pool rules and Front Gate are in place for the security and well being of all the residents of Pinegrove. If you have any questions, or would like to REPORT AN INCIDENT, feel free to call Tim Chestnut at 843-902-2797.
