The HOA will be placing an advertisement in local newspapers and also placing temporary signs near the front entrance of both Hempsteade and Hampshire. If you’ve been wanting to have a yard/garage sale, this Saturday would be a good time to do it because of the increased traffic in the neighborhood. So come on out, whether you are selling or buying or just to enjoy meeting your neighbors!

Sponsorship

The board has decided to allow a few sponsors for the website to help offset some of the expenses.  If you or someone you know may be interested in sponsoring the website, please contact the HOA by filling out the form here.  Sponsoring the site would likely mean having a banner ad on one or more pages and/or having sponsored announcements.   The HOA website is one of the first places a perspective homeowner would go get information about moving into the neighborhood and we’ve had some interest from realtors and the like.

Do Not Feed Geese
Image: Do Not Feed Geese Residents of Hempsteade,

Please refrain from feeding the geese around the community. This may seem like a fun activity to do, and you may feel like you are helping the geese, but there are many cons to doing so.

  • A young gosling's diet will determine his taste preferences as he grows up, if he's spoiled on purchased feed or particularly lush grass while young, he'll probably refuse the nastier weeds as an adult.
  • Feeding geese near your unit can cause them to rely on coming around your unit for food source. They are very noisy and can make a big mess while they are there.
  • Geese like all animals can become aggressive.
  • They are insatiable curious and they nibble on everything; including bike seats, patio furniture, and other belongings, which is not only a nuisance, but dangerous to their health.
