heiau videos1/9/2018 - IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN...

Aloha Pualani Estates owners! It's that time again! The Board has scheduled a community-wide property compliance review for the week of January 22, 2018.

Please take the time to review your property for any potential CC&R/DRC violations. We encourage all owners to review the governing documents now. Rule enforcement in community associations plays a critical role in helping to protect home values for all owners in our community.

Some common violations include:

  • Unkempt, overgrown lots (including encroachment of plantings into ditch or neighbor's lot)
  • Maintenance of sidewalk and gutter weeds, weathered wood and bamboo fences
  • Improper storage (seen from the sidewalk, including basketball hoops)
  • Tents/tarps/wire fencing
  • Unapproved modifications (fences, walls, storage sheds, gazebos, lanai covers)

Due to increased violations regarding owners' drainage ditches, the BOD would like to assist all homeowners with a community clean-up offer for their drainage ditches. We would like to hire a landscaper to remove all debris at one time. If your drainage ditch is already clear, you won't be charged. If it needs cleaning, the HOA will charge your association accounts for your reasonable portion of the cleaning service.

The following policy is effective January 1, 2018.

  1. FIRST Notice of Violation – 30 days to correct
  2. SECOND Notice of Violation/ Monetary Fine – 15 days to correct or assessed $100 fine
  3. THIRD Notice of Violation/ Additional Monetary Fine - 15 days to correct or assessed $200 fine/Board's resolution options for corrective actions at owner's expense
  4. FOURTH Notice of Violation and subsequent violations may be referred to legal counsel, and/or resolved by Board actions with all costs and legal fees incurred charged back to the property owner.
  5. FIFTH Notice of Violation – legal fees and costs will be assessed.
  6. Please note that if at any time a "Cease and Desist" letter is received by an owner and the construction or modification of the property continues after such notification, an immediate fine of $500 will be assessed to the Owner.

Thank you for your cooperation in Project Property Value Preservation (PVP) and for helping us keep Pualani Estates one of Kona's most desirable communities.

Dear Pualani Estates Members:

For your information, your Board of Directors has submitted the attached comments on the Application for Special Permit filed by the Living Stones Church to the Planning Director of the County of Hawaii.

We wish to thank those of you who offered comments to us; we found them quite helpful. We've since learned that several graves have been discovered on the site, which will probably delay Planning Department action for a while. In any event, we will keep you informed as we learn of further developments.

Aloha, and have a joyous Thanksgiving.

Joel Gimpel
President, Board of Directors

The following is a letter from the PEK Board President.

Dear Pualani Estates Owners:

We've attached a Living Stones Church request for a COH Special Permit to allow construction of a 600-seat church, classroom building, parking lot and park on property north of Pualani Estates and mauka of Hwy 11. This proposal will undoubtedly affect our community, and especially those homes on Ho'omama St. Your Board is planning to submit general comments and questions focusing on the potential effects of the construction and church activities on noise, dust and traffic. We also urge you to review the proposal and, if you wish, to submit your comments and questions as well. Comments are requested by Nov. 14.

The Leeward Planning Commission will undoubtedly schedule a public hearing to take comments.

Aloha,

Joel Gimpel
President, Pualani Estates Homeowners Association
