NOTICES


Important Sidewalk Notice
Members of the Board of Directors have, over the summer months, received complaints from residents about the condition of sidewalks in front of houses throughout the development.

You should be aware that the homeowner is solely responsible for maintenance of the sidewalk that is in front of their home. Neither the Newtown Crossing Community Association nor Newtown Township has any duty to maintain sidewalks that pass in front of any house. The maintenance duty is not just snow removal.

The duty is to permit safe travel on the sidewalk. So, if your sidewalk is crumbling or has buckled due to tree roots or is just in bad shape, you have the duty to fix it. You have the duty to keep it clean, level, and smooth enough for foot travel.

If you choose not to believe this free legal advice, you can check with your homeowner's insurance carrier. If someone trips or falls and is injured by reason of a defect in your sidewalk, you can face serious financial consequences.


Trash in Common Areas
Residents, their children, and guests: remember to clean up after using the common areas. If there are no handy trash recepticals, please carry out your trash when you leave. The grass at Hidden Valley and Millpond has been left littered recently. It doesn't take a lot of effort to keep our neighborhood cleaner for everyone.

Use of Common Areas
A person is in violation of the rules and regulations of the Newtown Crossing Community Association regarding and governing the use of common areas and common facilities if that person, alone or in conjunction with another person, directly or indirectly, engages in sales of personal property or storage of personal property on any common area or common facility of the Newtown Crossing Community.  If this violation continues on any day after seven (7) days subsequent to a written notification from an appropriate representative of the Newtown Crossing Community Association to cease this activity, the person or persons who are in violation of this regulation shall immediately forfeit the privilege to use the common area and common facilities of the Newtown Crossing Community Association and shall pay a fine of $25.00 per day for each and every day that the violation continues after the expiration of seven (7) days from the date of receipt of the notification.

For purposes of this regulation, a sale is defined as transfer of property for consideration either in money or its equivalent; personal property is defined as any movable property; and storage is defined as depositing or placing personal property in one place for safe keeping or putting personal property in one place for future use.

All signs posted are subject to a $100 fine per entrance. Fines will be added to the resident's assessment fee balance, and signs will be confiscated.

Also, no parking is permitted on any cul de sac island.

No Ball Playing In Playground/Parking Lot Area
There is no ball playing (football, kickball, baseball, softball, stick ball, baseball w/tennis balls, etc.) allowed in the parking lot area near the pool and the tot-lot/playground area due to the risk of injury to children on the playground equipment, and damage to community & private property. Ball playing in the common ground areas not near the pool, playground or where loose balls or thrown bats will not damage private property is allowed.

Architectural Control
You may print the Architectural Control application from this website. This is for townhome owners wishing to make improvements/alterations.

No Dumping!
The dumping of refuse, yard, waste, grass clippings, tree and bush trimmings or clippings, trash and debris of any kind in any detention basis or on any common ground is prohibited. Residents found guilty of such dumping shall be fined the sum of $100 and that fine shall become a lien on the property under and pursuant to Article 4, Section 9 of the Declaration and Covenants and the collection of that fine shall be permitted bu the same means or method of collection of any delinquent assessment. If you notice another resident dumping on any of the common ground areas, please contact a board member.

Maintenance of cul-de-sacs
One of the reasons our assessments remain low is because many residents help to maintain small sections of community ground by cutting parcels of common ground that border their yard and maintaining cul-de-sacs. The community association has trimmed back cul-de-sacs that have become grossly overgrown; however, once cut back, the neighboring residents are asked to cut the grass and maintain the appearance of the grounds. Your help is appreciated.

Selling your Home?
Newtown Crossing is considered a planned unit development, or a PUD. When selling your home, state regulation requires that PUD homeowners must furnish a 5407 Resale Package to the buyer prior to settlement. The 5407 Resale Package includes the 5407 form, a copy of the By-Laws and Regulations, most recent financial information and information relative to insurance coverage on the common grounds. For additional information or to request a package, please contact the secretary, Joanne Urquhart at 215-860-1584 or the treasure, Bob Donatelli, at 215-968-0866.

Trim Trees, Please!
Please trim your trees along sidewalks to insure that trees and shrubs do not obstruct stop signs, street signs, oncoming traffic or pose a safety issue to residents walking on sidewalks.

Clean Up After Your Pets!
Just a reminder that when walking your pets, please be sure to clean up after your pet and please do not let your dogs or cats roam the neighborhood.
