Welcome to the Tuscany Village Community Association Website!

The Board of the Tuscany Village Homeowners Association welcomes you to our web page. This website has been established to provide a convenient source of information for current and future members of the Tuscany Village Homeowners Association.

 


Vision

Our vision for Tuscany Village is a community of friendly and caring neighbors who cooperate with each other to affirm the value of both our property and our friendships.


Mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community through the management of common areas, enforcement of rules and covenants, support of initiatives that strengthen bonds among residents, and investment in capital improvements that benefit the greater good.


Values

In fulfilling our mission and achieving our vision, we value the six pillars of community living: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship, in all our actions.


Our Community

The Tuscany Village subdivision was established in Greenwood, Indiana in 2006. Tuscany Village is a family-focused community consisting of 152 single-family homes located in the White River Township of Johnson County. Many shopping and dining options are available within a 15-minute driving radius. Police and fire services are extremely close. Downtown Indianapolis is 20 miles away.


2018 assessment of $300.00 is due on or before January 1, 2018.  Please pay your 2018 assessment on time. As you know, your dues have a tremendous impact on our wonderful community, from improvements to community events. Thank you!


Your HOA operates solely on funds received from annual dues which are required by the recorded CC&R's for the development to keep the corporation up and running by paying your dues in a timely manner. Members not paying their dues in a timely manner or not at all, jeopardize the need to reduce or eliminate services that benefit the entire community.  If you have not paid your dues or owe late fees, please contact Joey Harris. (MSM).

Thank you for paying your annual dues in a timely manner.....your neighbors that pay on time appreciate it.

Friendly Reminders & Updates:


UPDATED 10/18/2018:

-This year’s Monster March, our annual kids’ Halloween parade, is scheduled for 5:45-6:15 pm on 10/31. We’ll meet at the west side of Padana by the park, walk down Valdarno and circle back to the park. From there, kids can go on their regular trick-or-treating. Special thanks to the Social Committee volunteers for organizing this and to everyone who donated candy!

-Coming soon: Annual Meeting date to be confirmed for mid-November (likely the week of 11/12). At the meeting we'll update you on budget/contracts/legal matters/future steps. Details to come, and we’ll find a way to video or live-stream the meeting.

-The board has met with attorneys for MSM and Tuscany Village Community for an update on current lawsuits involving Tuscany Village. We also discussed options for next steps. Next, we'll meet with opposing parties to do the same and explore the best way forward.

-Our 3-yr landscaping contract is nearing its end. That vendor (Practical Property Group) has increased its bid by $16K, which we hope is a typo. In any case, we’re gathering bids from 3 other vendors too.

-We want to recognize our new Social Committee, led by Allison Benge: Jason Mueller, Amy Street, Kathy Nikel, Kristen Partlow, Brian Partlow. Pat’em on the back next time you see them, and thank them for their time and contributions!

-We’ve received requests to revisit bylaws pertaining to colored lights, yard signage, mini barns, and the like. We certainly want to have that discussion, with homeowners driving any decisions. We need to prioritize other items for the remainder of 2018, but will be sure to provide opportunities for you to participate and vote on these and other discussions -- even if you can’t attend a meeting in person.

-We’ve learned the former board personally handled trash disposal at the playground, and we’ve done so ourselves to learn that process. The trash can’s open design means rain water pours in, resulting in a water + dog feces mix that's quite heavy to lift, prone to leakage/rupture, and difficult to dispose. We're replacing the open can with a covered container and assigning disposal to the grounds maintenance crew.

-Re: those flags showing up in your yard… Per Main Street Management, you can rip them out after 2 weeks. Work is pre-approved by the city, and we aren't notified in advance of flags showing up, but they should have a phone # on them if you have questions.

-Got a question about bylaws, property or neighborhood matters? You may email joey.harris@mainstreetmanagementllc.com for individual assistance. That goes to Joey at Main Street Management — he’s offered to be our primary “homeowner support” contact. He’ll involve the board as needed, but otherwise should be able to answer your questions and follow up on concerns.  

-MSM is now managing compliance with DCCR violations, and will drive by Tuscany Village on a regular schedule for that purpose. Board members won’t be inspecting homes for violations, nor issuing citations. We believe this is a better use of the resources we’re paying for, and helps us bring more objectivity into DCCR enforcement. 



As you know our annual dues of $300 were payable by January 1, 2018. Timely collections from our homeowners is vital to Tuscany Village in order to keep our budget balanced and our bills paid.  Unfortunately, we still have delinquent homeowners who are not meeting this obligation.  Your prompt payment would be appreciated. Contact Joey Harris at Main Street Management.


Thank you to everyone who has already paid!


Police Incident Report


The Greenwood Police Department from January 2017 to present has responded to 126 calls in Tuscany Village for criminal mischief, parking problems, vin inspections, disabled vehicles, juvenile problems, suspicious person, gun issue, alarm residence, lockouts, citizen assistance, traffic, abandoned and theft. A thank you to our Greenwood Police Department for putting the communities that you serve above your family and for risking your life for ours.


For a police anonymous tip you can go to www.greenwood.in.gov under Police Connect.  Homeowners claim they are hesitated to call on issues in the community because  their name will appear on the police report.  If you choose, the board has no problem with any resident contacting the board with any suspicious activities, etc  and we will file a report and the President's name will appear on the report. (not yours) As always you will remain anonymous.


The fountain has been pulled from the pond for repairs. Fishing line is wrapped around the shell, damage to the meg pins, possible water in the oil. We will keep you updated on the progress of the fountain repair. Update: Waiting for a warranty inspection on the fountain. The association is obligated to pay for shipping. The motor on the fountain is testing 40% out 100 on the megohmmeter. Beazer purchased the fountain from a vendor in Wisconsin, that is where the fountain has been shipped. Unfortunately, the company was not able to give a date when the fountain will be repaired and shipped back for install. We will keep everyone posted. Sorry for any inconvenience. Also, there is a concern of $900 spent last year. $550.00 was for rebuilding the breaker switches which came out of reserves, this was an improvement not a repair and $350.00 is a basic contract which is paid from our regular budget. (this concern was addressed last year on the community website) The 2018 budget was reviewed at the budget meeting and discussed with the members in attendance. The budget this year for the fountain is not $0.00, it is $2,018.00 It is under Common Area Maintenance/Lake and Pond Maintenance.

All common grounds are maintained by the association. All members pay equal amounts, there are no separate assessments. All homeowners benefit from the retention pond regardless of the location within the HOA. The pond removes water from the yards and streets to prevent flooding. Joey Harris addressed this concern at the budget meeting. Additionally, it is common for pond lot owners to pay a premium upon the purchase of their home.


Parking Across the Sidewalk

We are having a safety problem in Tuscany Village. Cars are parked across the sidewalk causing people and children to go up and down a curb and go into the street to get around the cars/vans. It makes it difficult for a wheel chair to pass or a disabled person to go on their walk. It also makes it difficult for pet owners walking their dogs. Residents have contacted the board on the issue of parked cars across the sidewalk (s) It is a simple fix, please don't park across the sidewalks. A classic workaround, which might save your from a ticket, frustrated residents and your vehicle removed. It is an Indiana Code Title 9.Motor Vehicles 9-21-16-5 The code goes on to say that a person may not stop, stand, or park a vehicle on a sidewalk, in front of a public or private driveway, within an intersection, etc. Person or vehicle blocking the sidewalk is in violation of the code. Please refer to the State Code. It is also a City Ordinance, Sec. 6-339. The ordinance goes on to say, when any street, alley or sidewalk so as to impede or interfere with free use thereof, the Chief of Police may remove such obstruction to some suitable place. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated. Moving forward, Main Street Management and the HOA Board will need to take the proper steps to insure the safety of our residents if the vehicles continue to block sidewalks. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.


Please refrain your pets from doing their duty on private property, the common grounds, especially in the park. When walking your pet in our community remember it should be leashed. Also, it is important to remember to immediately clean up after your pet. Take a baggie with you to pick up waste and then dispose of it properly. By cleaning up after your pet you can contribute to the beautification of our community and also the elimination of one of the most irritating nuisances in our community. Also, it has been noted that dogs are urinating on the trees, especially on the common ground evergreens/bushes. Please refrain your pets from urinating on the evergreens, etc., it is causing brown areas on the evergreens, etc. It is not healthy for the plants, etc.

Also, it has been noted that dogs are urinating  on the trees, especially on the common ground evergreens/bushes.  Please refrain your dogs from urinating on the evergreens, etc., it is causing brown areas on the evergreens, etc.  It is not healthy for the plants, etc.   If several dogs pee on the shrubs damage can occur from nitrogen overdose.  Burning on the leaves can appear caused by the nitrogen and also cause damage to the root system because the soil becomes saturated with nitrogen.  If this continues over time it can stunt or even kill the shrubs. 

Animal waste carried bacteria that could cause illness.  Besides being unsightly and smelly, animal waste can be hazardous to the health of your children who play in the community park and to other pets. One of the most common forms of disease transmission between dogs is through fecal matter.  It has become a major concern that pet owners are not cleaning up after their pets in the community park.  Please clean up for the safety of our children and other pets.   Your corporation is appreciated.
Note: The board has received numerous complaints on this issue. 



Please turn in an ARC request for approval before starting any exterior project. Please turn in an ARC request before starting any exterior projects. All information can be found under the form tab. Also, other issues are parking of vehicle (s) on the street (s) overnight, signs on front lawns, and excessive barking dogs. The board encourages compliance with the rules for the greater benefit of the community as a whole. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Note: If you have any questions concerning a request for any exterior projects, please contact Doug Gregg, ARC Chair.  



The actual cost to run the fountain for 12 hours a day in 2017 from April through October was $1,340.89. To run the fountain 24 hours a day from April through October would approximately cost the association $2,690.00 (double). Our savings are half to only run it 12 hours. Duke Energy determines the cost to run the fountain. The board made a business judgement decision to run the fountain only 12 hours a day to be fair, reduce the cost and for what is in the best interest for all homeowners. Fountain runs 10 am - 10 pm and that may change, as long as the change does not effect the pond quality. Please refer to FAQ's for more information. Note: Woodfield's pond fountain does not run 24/7. It is only brought up because it was a concern of a homeowner of how long Woodfield's fountain runs. 






Beazer corporate officers in Atlanta are working on when they will return to Tuscany to finish the work in Section 2 & 3.  No timeline on anything as of yet.  

Mann's Property have bidders looking at the sidewalks that are marked in Section 1.  Bids have not been received , but they are due next week.  If you have any questions, please contact Main Street Management.

FAQs & Answers


Are ADT and other security signs allowed to be displayed in our front yard?


The display of security signs isn't about advertisement from the security companies, it is a warning to burglars, "I am protecting my family from you." Yard signs are a deterrent and an important strategy in total home security. Well placed signs let a burglar know that there will be obstacles. Home security signs offer several advantages. The most important is that homes that clearly display a home security sign are less likely to be broken into. Also, with alarm monitoring signs in the neighborhood being displayed in yards, it may actually deter crime in the entire neighborhood.

Some insurance companies (maybe all) offer discounts on homeowner's insurance premiums for their clients who install a security system and display the associated signage. Also, the police encourage security signs to be displayed.




Do grass clippings and debris going into the storm sewers hurt the pond?
Yes.  Yard waste and debris contributes excess nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, which deletes oxygen from the pond (kills fish) and contributes to unwanted and uncontrolled growth of algae and invasive weeds.  Phosphorus is one of the primary water quality problems.  This action (toxic discharge) is costing the association extra expenses to treat the pond.  Also, it is a city violation, HOA violation and a Clean Water Act (EPA) violation to allow grass clippings, etc to run off into the drains.



What is the difference between the CC&R's and the Bylaws?


The CC&R's is a legally binding document that is officially recorded and filed with Indiana.  They cover the rights and obligations of the HOA to its members. It is typical for the CC&R's to regulate things such as: landscaping, pets, garbage cans, etc. 

The Bylaws establish the structure of day - to - day governance of your homeowners association. The bylaws govern how the HOA operates and contain the information needed to run the HOA as a business. For example, the bylaws cover, membership voting rights, how many people on the Board of Directors, etc.  A vote (75%) from the membership is not required for the Board of Directors to amend the Bylaws


Why was the Fourth Amendment of the By-Laws, Article II amended?
The Fourth Amendment to Article II of the By-Laws was amended in the best interest of the association. The board is entitled to act in “good faith,” what is in the best interest of the association and based on well informed business judgment. The Board of Directors has legally amended Article II of the By-Laws to allow for less strict scheduling of the annual meeting.

Thanks for supporting the 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The Tuscany Village Easter Egg Hunt was a great success.

The count down was started, "3-2-1 GO!" The park was immediately flooded with kids.  In a flash 50+ kids picked up the plastic eggs. It means so much just to see the kids and their parents come out for the Easter Egg Hunt, and to see the look on the kids faces running to find the most eggs  A good time was had by all. 

A special "Thank You" to all our volunteers, Eric Berg, Katie Berg, Carol Angel, Rosalie Cleveland,and to our HOA Board of Directors to make this one of the BEST Community Easter Egg Hunts ever! We could not do what we do without you. 

"Thank You" Alan, for once again volunteering to be the event photographer.  As always, "Great Pictures"

"Thank You" Katie, for playing the part of the Easter Bunny this year, you were a big hit.  Parents took some great pictures of their kids with the bunny. 

Thanks everyone for coming and making this a great event for the kids!  Hope to see everyone at the next community event on August 11, 2018, National Night Out. 

Congratulations to the winners of the drawings:  Easter Basket - Rowan Fowler  Easter Bunny - William Locke
Jelly Bean Contest: Laurie

Thanks again,
