“It is the goal of the WPHA board to promote the right of all residents to live in a safe and attractive neighborhood, where the individual is respected and, at the same time, the life of the total community is enhanced. Accordingly, the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Weatherhill Pointe safeguards the individual homeowner’s rights while promoting the overall good of the community.”
Whether you have lived here a number of years, recently purchased a home in Weatherhill Pointe, or are just living here temporarily, the Weatherhill Pointe Homeowners Association Board wants to extend a warm welcome to ALL.
1. Weatherhill Pointe Homeowners Association:
Anyone owning a home at Weatherhill Pointe is a member of the
Homeowners’ Association, urged to attend an annual meeting held in
February, and entitled to vote on all issues brought to the floor,
including representation on the board (one vote per household). The
Weatherhill Pointe Home-owners Association (WPHA) is financed
exclusively by fees paid by each member. The monthly dues cover
assorted expenses, including landscape maintenance, pond
maintenance, liability insurance, electricity for street lights, and
funding for capital improvements (maintenance of roads, common
areas, street lights, pond, gazebo). The WPHA maintains a reserve
fund for capital improvements.
The Board of the Homeowners’ Association meets monthly and consists of six persons elected to staggered three-year terms of office. The Board itself designates a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, landscaping point-of-contact and member-at-large. Residents of the community wishing to attend the monthly meeting of the Board should contact the president for a place on the agenda.
Each homeowner has 2 parking spaces (one might be the garage). Additional cars must be parked in the overflow parking areas. Cars should not be parked on the street in front of homes. Entrance and exit to and from homes must always be kept open. Cars blocking entrance and exit or parked on the grass may be towed.
4. Trash & Recycling:
Residents of Carrboro are required to use the designated trashcans and blue recycling bins, which should already be on each property. Household trash is collected on Wednesdays and recycling is collected on Thursdays. Both are subject to change over the holidays. On all other days, trash containers should be kept at the side of the house to be as inconspicuous as possible. For more information, call Orange Community Recycling at 919-968-2788.
Homeowners must take discarded furniture, construction materials, paint cans and other hazardous waste to the Orange Regional Landfill 919-929-9823 on Eubanks Road (1 mile west of Martin Luther King Blvd where it crosses I-40). Yard waste, including leaves, cannot be put in rollout containers. Small trimmings can be gathered in a curbside pile. Limbs (cut in lengths no longer than 4 feet) and Christmas trees may also be piled at the curb for pickup by the City.
5. Payment of Dues:
Our HOA dues are currently $150 per month. These dues are not optional and statements are only sent out to those behind on payments. There is a slot in the mailbox kiosk to put your check. You may pay monthly, quarterly, or whatever is best for you. If you prefer, you may also mail the dues to Weatherhill Pointe Homeowners Association, PO Box 442, Carrboro, NC 27510.
Late fees: Dues not paid within 30 days of the due date may accumulate a late fee of $10 each month, plus 6% interest and associated legal fees if three months late. Customarily, if a resident fails to pay WPHA dues for three consecutive months, the Association may impose a lien on the property for the amount owed, in addition to any legal (including court) costs incurred. If dues remain unpaid the WPHA may start foreclosure proceedings against the property. The detailed policy and process regarding delinquent dues are posted on in the Bylaws Section.
6. Use of Property:
Restrictions on the use of property are limited to activities that could annoy one's neighbors, lower property values, harm the landscaping, or pose a health risk. For example, residents are asked to keep the area surrounding their houses free of clutter and to pick up and store at the end of each day any garden implements/tools or children's toys. For other specifics, see the bylaws.
The common recreation areas (playground, gazebo, picnic area) are for everyone to enjoy, so please show consideration for others in the use of these spaces. When the intent is to use the gazebo or picnic shelter either for community-wide or private events, these areas may be reserved by contacting the WHPA Board; once approved, a notice will be posted in the glass case above the mailboxes. For a private event, the homeowner/resident should 1) send a letter or an email of request to the Board, outlining details of the event and 2) talk in advance with any neighbors who might be affected (loud music, parking, etc.)
Weatherhill Pointe is a very pet-friendly neighborhood that complies overall with the rules set by the Town of Carrboro. Otherwise, be guided by common sense and the Covenants (note that pit bulls are prohibited). Obviously, the community cannot tolerate the presence of an unrestrained pet known to be vicious. Note that the Town of Carrboro requires dogs to be leashed when outdoors. Owners must be in control of their pets at all times, and dogs should not be left chained outside for long periods when no one is at home.
7. Utility Companies:
8. School Information:
Residents of Weatherhill Pointe are served by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. Bus routes for these schools include a pickup point at the entrance to the neighborhood by the Weatherhill Pointe sign.
9. U.S. Mail:
Your mail is delivered to a box at the kiosk near the playground.
There are also slots there to place outgoing mail. Your mailbox
number and your house number are usually not the same.
10. Weatherhill "Pointes" of Interest:
There is a nifty dog-walk trail that begins at the rear of the vacant lot between 102 and 104 Weatherhill Pointe and allows access to one side of the pond as well as to a creek-overlook area off the beaten path. Enjoy the solitude.
The Town of Carrboro has a Farmer’s Market located in the Town Commons at 301 W. Main Street. The Farmer’s Market is held Wednesdays from 4-7 PM and Saturdays from 7 AM – 12 noon from May through October. The offerings at the Farmer’s Market are all produced locally – within a 50-mile radius. It’s a great way for children or adults to spend some time.
Residents of NC can get a library card for use at the UNC libraries, and residents of Orange County are invited to use the Chapel Hill Library.
Initial impressions are important, and we find that most visitors comment favorably on our well-planned landscaping and neatly kept grounds. This is no accident; we work hard to preserve our pleasing appearance. Residents who want to add onto their houses or change a home's exterior or paint color must first write a letter or send an email to the WPHA Board, describing and sketching, if appropriate, what is proposed. Please also ensure that your neighbors on both sides have no objections. In large part, this measure is to ensure the harmony of the neighborhood and to maintain or enhance property values. Other items considered "architectural changes" that need prior approval include basketball hoops (including portable), satellite dishes, and electronic fences (fenced pet enclosures are not permitted).
