Red Cross Home Fire Campaign
The Hawaii Red Cross is making Free Smoke Alarms available for seniors and other homes that do not have them. If you cannot afford to purchase smoke alarms or are physically unable to install them, the Red Cross may be able to help. They are also looking for volunteers to help organize and install alarms during their community Sound the Alarm events this spring.

Honolulu Parks & Rec now on Nextdoor
The Department of Parks and Recreation has begun using Nextdoor to communicate with Oahu communities. Parks and Rec will post messages and events to Nextdoor neighborhood sites and members can resppond directly to their messages. Routine Yacht Club Knolls content, such as your neighborhood posts, member profiles or private messages between members will still remain private. Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation staff are only able to see replies to their messages and private messages that are sent to them.
Each Nextdoor Yacht Club Knolls member can choose which agency posts they see.
Not yet a Nextdoor member? See the Security & Safety box below to signup.
PLEASE, Clean Up after Your Pet!
This seems to be a continuing problem in some areas of YCK. Resident families and guests are responsible for cleanup while exercising their pets. This includes removing the droppings AND disposing of them properly; either inside a trash dumpster or in your own trash receptacle. Do Not leave droppings (even in bags)
on the ground nearby or in dumpster areas, where a neighbor can step on it.
Our HI-5 recycling barrels should never be used for any trash or waste disposal.
All YCK staff and neighbors will appreciate your kokua!
COMMUNITY SECURITY & SAFETY INFORMATION

HNL Info is Honoluluís system to keep the public informed about traffic situations, weather advisories, events happening around the island, and much more.

All recent alerts can be easily viewed at the on-line website.
To help discourage thefts and vandalism, security cameras are installed on our property. There are three cameras for our entrance driveways, one for the pool and one in each parking lot. In addition, signs let any would-be thieves and vandals know we are monitoring their activities. Vehicle break-ins/thefts continue to occur in nearby neighborhoods and can occur on our property at any time.
Be sure to promptly report all incidents at YCK to the Resident Manager so that the video record can be preserved for police follow-up.
You can use the links on the left to learn about recent crime activity in our area.

During a power outage, contact the Hawaiian Electric Trouble Line at 548-7961 or access the HECO Outage Map. You can find out if the outage in our area is already known and may get an estimate of when power will be back on. You can also help responders by reporting if you heard an explosion, saw arcing, or that there are downed power lines causing a hazard. All things HECO needs to know.
The HECO app is also available for smartphone download so you can get local information or send reports quickly during an outage.
REMINDERS FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
- Our Community Management Company, Associa Hawaii, provides secure owner access for account information and Yacht Club Knolls documents. Select Owner Access in the left column for further details. Owner account preferences include on-line fee payment, notification when payments are received and the ability to opt-out of paper coupons if you use Direct Debit or your own bill-pay service (call/e-mail our Community Service Associate to do this).
- A limited number of reserved parking spaces are available for households with more than 2 vehicles. Details are provided on our Documents page under Reserved Parking Stall Program.
- All residents can help prevent costly sewer backups by not putting items such as diapers, wipes, kitty litter or facial tissue down the toilet. In addition, following City "FOG" guidance for disposal of oily cooking residue will reduce problems in all sewer lines. If a blockage does occur, residents should not attempt to fix external sewer backups on their own. Please immediately inform our Site Manager of any backup that could be caused by buried lines.
- The Yacht Club Knolls Newsletter is issued periodically to keep all residents informed of community activities and concerns. The most current issue can be viewed using the Newsletter button in the left column near the top of the Home page. Previous issues of the newsletter can be found near the bottom of the Documents page. You can subscribe to receive an electronic copy of the Newsletter by e-mailing your name and building/unit number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Residents are reminded that Cleanup After Pets is their responsibility. Animal droppings detract from the appearance and use of our common property. Failure to pick up droppings and dispose of them properly may result in a citation. In addition, please do not feed ducks, chickens or other feral animals that frequent our open areas. While we all may enjoy their visits, feeding interferes with their natural foraging behavior and can create a localized nuisance for other residents.
- Residents can obtain basic enclosed and interior area Pest Control Services for a small fee when they are pre-scheduled around the Yacht Club Knolls general service dates (normally the second Thursday of each month). Additional information is available on the NeXgen website and service can be scheduled by calling 808-236-7378.
- When available, the Upcoming Meeting Agenda is provided on the Yacht Club Knolls Documents page which also provides access to other useful information; including our House Rules and links to related state documents, construction drawings, insurance information and recent newsletters. Owner access is required to view other Governing Documents, Minutes and Financial documents.
- Yacht Club Knolls Association has an In-House Trash Collection Program: Bins are processed by our maintenance crew on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Please help keep maintenance costs down by doing your best to follow these guidelines:
1. Do not overload the trash bins. If the bin is full, please take your trash to another bin.
2. Collapse all cardboard boxes. This helps reduce wasted space and overfilling of the bins.
3. Heavy construction rubble or heavy bulk items will damage the bins. See the following bullet for disposal alternatives or contact our Resident Manager if you need assistance.
4. No burning coals or hazardous materials are allowed in the bins.
5. Reasonable amounts of yard waste may be placed in the bins at this time.
- Large Item Disposal: Bulky items can be taken to the nearby Kapaa Transfer Facility. The city also has a Bulky Item Pickup day that, for our area, is the 2nd Wednesday of the month (see calendar). Many types of Bulk Items may be placed by the Kaneohe Bay Drive curb no earlier than noon the day before our scheduled pickup day. Further details regarding this program and acceptable bulk items can be obtained from the city website.
Please do not use the curbs by the entrance to Yacht Club Knolls as a dump site!
PLEASE DON'T PUT REFUSE OUT EARLIER THAN
THE TUESDAY BEFORE A SCHEDULED PICKUP!
- Recycling: Our maintenance crew collects HI-5 items in special bins, located in every trash collection area. Please place only HI-5 labeled containers in these bins. In addition, The City also accepts certain other recyclable materials in several of its HI-5 centers.
More information can be found on their HI-5 Plus web site.
- Maintenance Responsibilities: repair or replacement of doors and windows are the responsibility of owners. Guidance regarding acceptable designs and models is available from the Resident Manager. Doors and window frames are to be painted or selected to match approved colors. In addition, owners should be aware that maintenance and replacement costs for electric boxes, lighting/plumbing fixtures and interior surface treatments are also an owner-responsibility. A letter providing clarification regarding interior repairs is available here.
