CHANGES TO FINES AND PAYMENT PRIORITIES
As indicated in a recent mailing to all owners, the Board of Directors has approved several changes to fees processing and fines applicable to late payments or other violations. The changes are necessary due to rising costs associated with late payments and an increase in the number of longer term delinquencies. Beginning April 15th, larger fines will apply when the late payments/violations are not corrected within 14 days of notification. In addition, all subsequent payments will be applied first to legal costs and outstanding penalties, before they are applied to maintenance fees. Our hope is that all accounts will be brought current in a timely manner so that the application of fines will not be necessary. The resolutions to adopt these rules are available through the new Fines for Violation and Priority of Payment links on the Documents page. As indicated, the new fines will also apply to citations for other rules violations such as miss-use of guest parking spaces. Owners are held responsible for their own fines as well as those associated with any citations issued to their guests or tenants.

HELP US PREVENT SEWER BACKUPS

Recently a sewer backup caused significant flooding and displaced residents in one of our units. When the line was cleared, a large number of wet wipes broke loose. Wet wipes are known to combine with congealed fat and other items to block even larger sewer lines. Please do not put any material that won't disolve down a toilet or drain. This list describes the many items that should be put into the trash, rather than into the sewer. Please help us by making sure all household residents, including children, know that these items should not be put down the drain.


COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT INFORMATION


Associa

Our new management company, Associa Hawaii, offers a variety of options for payment of maintenance fees (click here for brochure) and other owner services. All owners are encouraged to sign up on the Associa Access web site where they can manage their Yacht Club Knolls payments account and related community services. Account preferences include notification when payments are received and the ability to opt-out of paper coupons if you routinely use a bill payment service. For further information on payments processing or how to contact our Associa representatives go to our Contacts page.

NOTE: Not only does opting-out of coupons save trees but it will also save our Association future printing and mailing costs (you can call/email our Community Service Associate to do this)

COMMUNITY SECURITY & SAFETY INFORMATION

Crime Updates
Crime Map






HECO
Outage Map

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 such incidents to the Resident Manager so that the video record can be preserved for police followup.
  
38 Yacht Club Knolls neighbors are currently enrolled in Nextdoor Yacht Club Knolls. Nextdoor is a private social network with access restricted to nearby neighbors and linked to other Nextdoor sites in the surrounding community. It provides a way for neighbors to talk online and "use the power of technology to build stronger and safer neighborhoods". In addition to Crime & Safety, other categories include: Classified Ads, Lost & Found, Contractor Recommendations, Community Events and General Interest items. You can customize the site to see just Yacht Club Knolls posts or also see recent postings from the surrounding area.
Please help us build a stronger community. If you're not already a member, click Nextdoor to learn more and sign up.

During a power outage, contact the Hawaiian Electric Trouble Line at 548-7961 or visit the HECO Outage Map website. 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 report if you heard an explosion, saw arcing, or that there are downed power lines causing a hazard. All things HECO needs to know.

 
REMINDERS FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
  • update 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 activvities 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 emailing your name and building/unit number to ycknollsknews@gmail.com.

  • 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 Minutes & Budget page. In addition, our Documents page provides access to other useful information; including our governing documents and House Rules, as well as links to related state documents, construction drawings, insurance information and recent newsletters. Owner access is required to view some 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 before putting them in the bins. This reduces wasted space and overfilling.
    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 Bulk Item Pickup day which, for our area, is the 2nd Wednesday of every month. 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. All proceeds help to finance our Community Party Committee events. Please place only HI-5 labeled containers in these bins. In addition, The City now accepts other recycled items 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.
