Annual Letter to Hawthorne Homeowners
Posted on Apr 11th, 2016
April 11, 2016
 
To our Hawthorne neighbors, 
 
Subject: 2016 annual dues and meeting notice
 
Dear Hawthorne neighbor:
 
Spring is here and hopefully warmer weather will be here soon!  Welcome to all the new residents of Hawthorne.  We look forward to having you become a part of our neighborhood and actively participate in all of our activities throughout the year.  Below are some upcoming events to mark on your calendar:
 
Annual Meeting - DJ’s Dugout  May 9, 2016  6:30 p.m. 
Annual Hawthorne Garage Sales – May 5-7, 2016
Movie Night at the Park – Friday, June 3rd
 
This year the annual dues are $220.   Dues are up $25 from the 2015 year to meet budgeted expenses for common areas, entrances, mailboxes, park area, etc.  Please note that dues are payable by April 25th.  You can mail your payment to the P.O. box or there is a link on the HOA web site to pay via PayPal as well.
 
As a reminder, the Hawthorne neighborhood has protective covenants that all property owners are contractually obligated to abide by.  These covenants outline architectural standards and rules set forth as an owner in Hawthorne.  Some common violations/complaints include the following: abandoned cars, boats/trailers in driveways, sheds/outbuildings, un-kept yards, dead trees, etc.  If you plan on any construction or improvement to your home it is always wise to verify with the HOA that you are compliant with the protective covenants.   In addition, if you are planning to replace your roof, please note that all roofing material must be either cedar shake OR CertainTeed Presidential Tri Laminate (TL) or Impact Resistant (IR); color is weathered wood only.  No other materials will be accepted.    
 
The Hawthorne Homeowners Board has made a concerted effort the last two years to encourage homeowners to abide by the covenants and replace trees in parking areas that have been removed or never planted.  As stated in the protective covenants, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to keep up the trees in parking areas.   Any replacement tree must meet minimum standards of 2” diameter and 8’ in height.  Thank you to the many homeowners that received notices last year and planted a new tree. This year those homeowners who have not yet complied with the request to replace a tree will receive one final notice.  If there is no communication or compliance within 30 days, a tree(s) will be planted in the parking area and the homeowner will be billed accordingly.  Please refer to the covenants regarding details on the parking area trees and lien notices.
 
There is a link on the HOA website if you would like to communicate or ask a question in regard to our neighborhood, covenants, construction plans, etc.   Please go to www.hawthorne-omaha.com    Please contact us if you would like to participate on the Board or any of our committees.  We would love to have your involvement.   On behalf of the Hawthorne Homeowners Board, we look forward to another successful year! 
 
Sincerely,
 
Hawthorne Board Members
Bill Unger, President
John Skrabal, Vice President
Mike Bizzarri, Treasurer

New Roofing Material Approved
Posted on Aug 1st, 2013
Many Hawthorne residents are considering replacing their roofs due to recent storm damage.  Please note that as of November 2010, a covenant amendment was made to the Hawthorne subdivision protective covenants to allow an additional material as an option in Hawthorne.  Click below for more detailed information.

The Hawthorne Neighborhood Spring Garage Sales will be Thursday through Saturday, May 5-7.  We are coordinating our garage sales this year to coincide with our neighbors in Dickinson's Landing.  Signs will be posted and an advertisement will be placed in the Omaha World Herald.
 
Annual Hawthorne Homeowners Association Meeting
Monday, May 9th, 6:30 at DJ's Dugout

Kick off to Summer Neighborhood Party
Friday, June 3rd, 6:30 PM at Hawthorne Park
Please plan to join your neighbors for a fun evening to kick off summer.  Your Hawthorne Homeowners Association will provide grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.  We will conclude the evening with a movie at dusk.
 
Toast of the Trees
Friday, December 9th
Toast of the Trees is a progressive holiday party.  It's a great way to celebrate the season with new and old neighbors.  Hawthorne residents will begin the evening at a host home to enjoy appetizers, beverages, and great company.  After about an hour at each home, you will "toast" the host's Christmas tree and move on to additional host homes to mix with other neighbors.  Everyone will be brought back together at one final home at the end of the evening.  If interested in being a host home this year, please let us know.
