TUE 4/8 GATE UPDATE!

The gate has successfully been updated!  This now means the gate will be closed at all the times!  You will need to use your remotes or personal 4-digit code to enter the community.  Note: we recently found out that we are only able to have one telephone number and one personal code per residence.  Remember the west gate is totally separate from the east gate and remotes have to be entered manually to the west gate.  Everything entered in the west gate to date will be unaffected by the east gate upload.  The 1036 code is now deleted!!  (Hallelujah 🙂 )

The garbage company and Peterson Development will use an individual “contractors” code.  Residents will have to individually arrange with FedEx/UPS, newspaper delivery, etc for personal deliveries.  This means residents can give them their personal code when arranging deliveries or have the couriers access the gate directory and call their phone number directly from the gate pedestal for access.  Remember that when you receive a call from someone at the gate you press the number 9 on your keypad and the gate will open.  This will also then hang up the call!  If the phone goes to voice mail the voice mail will intercept the call and not allow the gate to be opened.  The gate will not dial long distance numbers.

If changes are needed to the gates please call Stacey Ward at 801-738-2716 or send an email to stacey_wardt@yahoo.com and “cc” the HOA at hoaharvestcrossing@gmail.com.  Stacey will do his best to follow up as soon as possible.  Please allow for 2-3 days for follow up.

Harvest Crossing Events Calendar

An events calendar has been added to the blog!  Please check this calendar for a schedule of meetings, community events and pavilion reservations!  Simply go to the salmon colored widget at the top of the blog and click on the link “Harvest Crossing Events Calendar”.

GATE ACCESS FULLY FUNCTIONAL!!

GREAT NEWS!!!  After months of work and numerous failed attempts, the East gate is (as of this moment :), fully functional!  The generic 1036 code will be completely deleted from the system on March 26th (the date of the Annual Meeting).  Your Guests now have 2 options for entering the neighborhood through the East gate;

  1. They can call you from the Pedestal.
  2. They can use your personal 4-digit code.

Things to know about using the East Gate:

  • You must have a local phone number in order to use this function.  The phone line used by the pedestal system does not call out long-distance.  We have done this intentionally to avoid a long-distance phone bill.  If you do not have a local phone number, you can either set one up or simply use your personal code instead.
  • Your 4-digit code is the last 4 digits of your primary phone number, backward.  For example, if your primary phone number is 801-555-1234, your personal code would be 4321.  Please be selective as to whom you give your code to as to protect the integrity of a secured neighborhood.
  • When your Guest arrives, they will use the up/down arrows on the pedestal to find your name.  (We have found a few mistakes in spelling of names, first initial, etc. so please let us know asap if there is anything that needs to be fixed on your name.)  Once they find your name, they will press the “#” key and the system will call you.  Once you are finished speaking with them, press the “9” button on your phone.  This will open the gate for them and then hang up the phone line!
  • Although we have gotten both primary and secondary numbers from most Residents, we recently found that they system will not forward to the secondary number if the primary phone has a voicemail.  The system recognizes the voicemail as having been answered so it never forwards to the secondary phone.  There is no way around this, it is simply how the system operates.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • If you need to change or update anything in the directory, please email those updates directly to Taylor Monty at taylor@qvsmarketing.com.

Thank you all for your patience.  I know we all would love to have had this completed months ago and it’s been a frustrating process to say the least.  Good news is, we have a great team of Residents that have been willing to spend countless hours working on this, not giving up until solutions were found.  Please be sure to extend a word of Thanks to Taylor Monty, Stacey Ward and Kevin Stevenson next time you see them!!!

As always, we welcome your questions and feedback.  Feel free to send your questions or concerns to the general HOA email at hoaharvestcrossing@gmail.com.

Gate Keeper to the Rescue

If you have a gate remote that is not currently programmed to the west gate – Stacey Ward will be out at the gate from 12:00 – 1:00 pm tomorrow, Saturday the 8th!!  Bring your remotes to him and he will make sure they get programmed in properly!!

We are still working on getting the remotes working on the East gate and hope to have a resolution ASAP!  
 
Please be sure to thank Stacey for taking time out of his Saturday to help with this!

Aside

Welcome to those who have moved in over the winter!  For those who are receiving this as your first newsletter, you can refer to our neighborhood blog for past issues.  The blog is www.harvestcrossinghoa.wordpress.com

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!

Our first Annual Meeting has been set for Wednesday, March 26th from 7:00 – 8:45pm!  The meeting will be held at the South Jordan Library in their meeting room.

We would love to see as many residents attend as possible!  We need a minimum of 60% attendance to vote on important issues.  We all live here together, if you want your voice heard, you have to show up and speak up!  We will be covering some critical topics!  Here are just a few things to be discussed:

Voting on CC&R Amendments

An increase in Board Members from 3 to 5

Introducing Fee Schedule

Presenting 2014 Budget & Reserve Analysis

Discussing HOA Fee Increase

Updating Directory

Discuss remaining outstanding transfer issues

Completion of the HOA reserve analysis – cost review

In the last newsletter, we outlined the issues we are still working with the Peterson’s on from the Transfer meeting.  Below is an update:

Retention Pond area clean-up

As I’m sure you’re all aware of by now, the Peterson’s have gated the retention area in the North East corner of the neighborhood.  We are still working on this issue but are happy to see they’ve taken this first step.

Street Lights out

Street lights have been fixed.

Trees

Still outstanding

HOA Fees for Peterson-owned lots

We have sought Legal advice on this issue and will be a point of discussion at the Annual Meeting.

HOA revenue/seed money balance

We have sought Legal advice on this issue and will be a point of discussion at the Annual Meeting.

Asset Inventory

We have since received this list from Peterson’s.

If anyone has a question/concern regarding the issues outlined above, please feel free to contact one of your Board Members.

After MUCH work, we have had some success with the gate transfer!  We still have some challenges to overcome before we are 100% passed the finish line, however at his point – all your personal codes are working!  THIS IS A BIG WIN!  Beginning immediately you can access the East gate with your personal code and/or 1036.  We plan to leave the 1036 code in effect until we have all issues resolved, giving everyone

a chance to become comfortable using the new system.

As a reminder, your personal code is the last 4 digits of your phone number, backward.  For example; 801-555-1234 would have a gate code of 4321.  If there is no answer at the preferred number, the call will forward to the secondary phone number you provided.

NOTE: At this moment, the car remotes are not working on the East gate!  We’re really sorry for this inconvenience!  For some unknown reason, when we successfully uploaded the new system, the remotes stopped working.  We are continually working with the gate servicer to ensure we get 100% past these hurdles and will notify everyone the moment they are resolved.  Your remotes still work on the West gate so you can continue to enter the resident-only gate with no problem.

Thank you once again for all your patience!  We will continue to keep you updated!

To minimize confusion and streamline payment processing, please be sure to send your monthly HOA payments to the PO Box address!  Hand delivering checks to different Board Members will no longer be allowed.

As a reminder, the monthly fee is currently $99/mo and is due on the 1st of each month.  You are welcome to pay multiple months at a time.
