UPDATED - Deadline Extended: CDD Board Vacancy
Due to the unfortunate passing of Ms. Rosemary White, the CDD Board of Supervisors is tasked by law with appointing a Qualified Elector to fill the vacancy in Seat #3 on the Board for the remainder of the unexpired term ending in November 2014. A "Qualified Elector" is defined by statute as any person at least 18 years of age who is a citizen of the United States, a legal resident of Florida and of the District, and registered to vote with the Leon County Supervisor of Elections.
If you are a Qualified Elector and are interested in being appointed to serve on the Board, you must provide a written expression of interest regarding your qualifications and interest in serving on the Board. The Board will consider the written expressions of interest at its meeting on June 10, 2013, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Piney-Z Lodge, 950 Piney-Z Plantation Road. Those wishing to be considered for appointment to the Board vacancy must must attend the June 10, 2013, meeting at 6:30pm, at the Piney-Z Lodge, 950 Piney-Z Plantation Road.

2012-13 Piney-Z HOA Assessments Overdue Now
The HOA fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30. HOA annual assessments for 2012-2013 were due on October 1, 2012. The Bylaws allow for a 30-day grace period, so the last day to have made a payment without penalty, was October 30. Any past due amounts now carry an eighteen percent (18%) per annum late charge, and the HOA may bring legal action or foreclose a lien against the property. More information is available on the assessments page.

The 2012 Fiscal year runs from October 1, 2012 until September 30, 2013. Download the entire CDD 2013 Budget (521 KB PDF). The CDD assessments are added to the property taxes of Piney-Z property owners. Contact the Leon County Tax Collector's Office to determine if your property taxes have been paid. More information is available on the CDD page.
The pool is closed until Spring 2013. Please direct any questions to CDD Property Manager Lance Rogers.
Trash Can Storage
The covenants require trash cans to be stored so that they cannot be seen from the street. Many homes are not in compliance. If you store your cans on the side of the house, they must be in an enclosure to prevent viewing from the street.
Street Light Outages
The City of Tallahassee has requested that a person living near the street light outage report it to the city. To report an outage, please call the City at 891-4968 or report it online at http://www.talgov.com/trouble.cfm.

Doggone It--Your Neighbors Want Consideration
We still get regular complaints from Piney-Z residents about other residents allowing their dogs to leave their droppings in their yards. No one wants dog droppings in their yard or in front of their mailbox. So, what is the proper thing to do when you walk your dog.
The HOA and CDD staff, Boards, or Committees cannot be involved with concerns or actual disputes between residents over dog droppings, barking dogs, escaped pets and such. We can only advise you to discuss it with your neighbor, call animal control, or perhaps even the health department if you are tired of finding dog waste on your property.
Tree and Limb Issues
Approval for Planting or Removing Trees—The Covenants and Restrictions dictate the rules and conditions related to tree planting or removal. To receive approval for tree planting or removal, contact Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Contact information is on the committee page. The ACC is a committee of the HOA.
Concern about a Tree or Limbs Hanging Over Your Home or Property—The CDD and HOA do not provide tree cutting services for Piney-Z residents or property owners who have concerns about trees or limbs. Trees in HOA Common Areas that have limbs hanging over a resident's property or home will rarely be removed. This was discussed and researched in 2003. It was determined that the owner of the tree does not bear the responsibility for trimming branches that overhang someone else's property, but the homeowner has the right to protect their property by having the tree limbs removed at their cost. Homeowners wishing to cut limbs or remove trees at their expense should consult with the ACC committee to determine if their plan complies with the Covenants and Restrictions, and to ensure that trees are not cut without cause. CDD Board research indicates that this is consistent with Florida law and City of Tallahassee policy.
