Pruning Schedule - Fall 2019
Posted on Oct 6th, 2019
On Monday, October 14th, Hillenmeyers will begin the Fall trimming of shrubs and trees.  This will include the trimming of smaller shrubs, mainly those in front of units, small trees, and shrubs around air conditioning units.  Larger woody shrubs, such as hydrangeas, viburnums and schipp laurels, will be trimmed separately in a mid-winter pruning.  During the mid-winter trimming, roses, grasses and other similar plant material will also be trimmed.

To opt out of the Fall Trimming, either completely or selectively, see "Read More" below.
Smoke Detector Replacement - Thursday, Oct. 17th
Posted on Sep 28th, 2019
There is an overwhelming interest in this program (see attachment in "Read More").  Immediately after the HOA meeting, the fire department received many calls.  Once they realized that many of the calls were coming from people living in the same neighborhood, they suggested that we coordinate our efforts.  It simply is not cost effective for the fire department to drive back and forth to attend to each unit one at a time.  Therefore, they have selected Thursday, October 17, between the hours of 8 and noon for them to come replace the bulk of the alarms.  The fire department will also conduct a fire safety inspection while they are in your home.  
Please call Katrina Smith, Administrative Specialist for Community Services with the Division of Fire and EMS.  Her number is:  859- 231-5662.  Identify yourself as being a resident of the Traditions, and have her put you on her list.  She will also need your contact information, i.e. phone number.
One-year batteries are included in the replacement; however, ten-year batteries can be substituted, but must be purchased by the homeowner in advance of the replacement.  Cost for the 10-year battery is $8.97 + tax at Lowe's, but might be cheaper elsewhere (e.g. Amazon).
If October 17 does not work for you, please tell her that when you call and she will work with you to schedule a different date.

Letter from the Board
Your Board of Directors has three areas of concern we would like to share with you.
Architectural  Modification  Requests  (AMR)
In order to make any addition or changes to the exterior of your unit, you must submit an AMR form to the Board for approval. This includes pergolas, screen rooms under existing roofs or under pergolas, and sunrooms. Paver patios are approved on a separate form.
The AMR form is available on our website ( and at the CMA office (1795 Alysheba Way, Suite 3103). On the AMR form, you will be asked to supply specifications, floor plans, and elevations. This form also states that required permits must be obtained from LFUCG, Division of Building Inspection. LFUCG regulations specify that the permit may be issued to a licensed contractor, but the OWNER must acknowledge issuance of said permit. In fact, our property and casualty insurer also requires evidence of permit issuance.
Failure to comply with these requirements may have serious consequences for homeowners. The Board of Directors will be compelled to notify the Division of Building Inspection that appropriate permits were not issued. Additionally, insurance compensation may be compromised if your addition was constructed without proper permit acquisition.
Satellite Dishes
Recently, several residents have inquired about the installation of satellite dishes.  These devices may be attached to the chimney or mounted on a pedestal in your yard, but they may NOT be attached to the roof.  Damage to the roof is a legitimate HOA concern (meaning, of course, all of us would pay).
Big Trucks
Since our blacktop lanes are narrow, their use by oversize vehicles causes problems. Turf damage from tires treading on grass, two-way traffic issues, physical damage to the blacktop surface, and bumping into residence structures have all occurred in the past, especially in areas of all three Phases where multiple turns must be negotiated.
If you expect delivery of large items such as appliances or furniture, please ask your seller/deliverer to use a small truck if possible, or park in the entrance cul-de-sac and use a dolly or hand truck to reach your home.
As always, we strive to spend money wisely and protect property values. Please feel free to contact any Board member for questions or clarification concerning this notice.
