Welcome to Harbor Ridge Estates
 
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, for January/February, 2017
 
Greetings again from your HOA Board.
First off, we all hope that the new year of 2017 has started off right, and is treating you all well. It has been an interesting year already in many ways.
 
By way of report from our annual General Membership Meeting held on November 10, 2016, we welcome Julius Ekeroma as a newly elected Board member. Since the meeting was held, Carol McCoy, who was elected to the Board in November of 2015 has resigned and been replaced on an interim basis by John Barnes, our tireless Webmaster and once again Board member. Thank you John for your renewed and continuing service to the neighborhood. That position will be filled permanently by election this upcoming November.
 
As regards the proposed and still pending view protection amendment, more votes came in at the November General Membership Meeting, but there are still not enough votes tallied to meet the requisite number to be acted on.
 As I have written here in the past, view protection is a complicated and often divisive issue, and one on which Washington law is not particularly clear. There are those among us that think the pending measure does not go far enough to protect views. There are also some that think it gives too much power to those with views over those who do not. Others still think that enforcement of the proposed amendment, if passed, will be difficult because the scope of protection will be difficult to quantify.
 All HRE residents are entitled to their own opinions, however, without enough votes on this measure to either make it formally part of our CCRs or to lay it to rest, the question of whether HRE and its Board have any meaningful tools for the enforcement of views will remain an unsettled issue. Therefore, this Board is encouraging all those of you who have not yet voted, to do so. It is the present Board’s understanding that the prior Board had this proposal reviewed by legal counsel. Based on my own experience as a land use attorney, the current proposal is probably the best level of protection we could hope to amend into our CCRs, for what that is worth, and I do believe that the intended scope of protection can be quantified and enforced. Text of the proposed measure can be found here on the HRE website as can ballots. Please feel free to fill out and return one if you have not previously voted.
Also, we have been asked to remind everyone (1) to remember that the speed limit within HRE is 25 mph and to abide by that law, and (2) to be familiar with our HRE covenants and regulations. This last one is important in order not only to keep our own properties in compliance, but also to keep us informed as to what is and isn’t allowed in regard to what we see around us. Our governing document do matter.
 
Lastly, the Board continues in its quest for committee members for the various committees that would work with the Board to assist with things like landscaping oversight, ACC review, enforcement issues, and even welcoming (our only currently functioning committee). Please send in statement of interest to the Board at the e-mail addresses of our Community Association Manager, Correna Hill at correna.hill@targarealestate.com, or just show up at the next monthly meeting (2nd Thursday of each month at the TPD substation).
   
Best Regards,
Jeff H. Capell, Board President

The community includes 352 single family homes and ten (10) Common Areas integrated within five (5) division of the development.

Harbor Ridge Estates combines the niceties of modern suburbia with the peace and quiet of cul-de-sac life, yet it's less than five (5) miles from the heart of downtown Tacoma with government buildings, shops, malls, theaters, museums and daily entertainment within a large children's park & zoo.




The Community...
The epicenter of Harbor Ridge Estates community life lies just within the Main Entrance at the Rose Garden. One of ten (10) Common Areas, this quiet and beautiful landscaped area consist of various species of vegetation such as Ferns, Roses, Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Fir Trees, Alders and Evergreens. The Rose Garden provides a serene location to just relax and watch the many varieties of birds that frequent the area or to just take a slow walk along the pathway among the trees and plants.
