Slow Down!Posted: September 10, 2018
As many of you are already aware, two moose were recently hit and killed by a vehicle on Pinebrook Road. Please obey the 25mph speed limits in Pinebrook for the safety of the children, wildlife, pets, cyclists and pedestrians on our roads! They are narrow, steep, mountain roads often with limited visibility around corners and are dangerous at excessive speeds. The Summit County Sheriff have been requested to perform additional patrols in Pinebrook to further enforce the posted speed limits. Thank you.
NO HUNTING ACCESS THROUGH PINEBROOKPosted: September 4, 2018
Just a reminder, using the private Pinebrook trail system to access the public hunting grounds in an area above Pinebrook is not allowed. Signage has been posted reminding hunters of this, but please report violations to the Summit County Sheriff. Thank you.

Fireworks are Banned in PinebrookPosted: June 22, 2018
In accordance with Section 8 of the Rules and Regulations adopted by the board of trustees on June 6, 2018, fireworks of any kind are banned in Pinebrook, and penalties as allowed by the Rules may be assessed. The upcoming 4th of July holiday will most likely be hot, and the dry conditions experienced this year have resulted in a particularly dangerous situation. ALL open fires, fire crackers and aerial fireworks are prohibited. Please pass along the information to your friends and neighbors to help keep Pinebrook safe. Thank you once again for your understanding and cooperation.
HOA Members Adopt New RulesPosted: June 19, 2018
On Wednesday June 6, 2018, a special meeting of the Board of Trustees was held, having been properly noticed on April 20, 2018. The purpose of the meeting was to give Members an opportunity to make comment about a proposed set of Rules and Regulations before the Board took a vote. The Board greatly appreciates the large number of Members who participated in the meeting. One Board Member remarked that he could not recall any other association meeting in recent history where so many Members were in attendance. It was literally standing room only! The Board also appreciated the courtesy demonstrated by all participants.
After almost two hours of constructive comments, the Board closed the member comment portion of the meeting and deliberated the rules. The Board unanimously approved the proposed Rules and Regulations, with only minor format and clarifying changes requested by the members in attendance. For example, reference was added to the Summit County Noise Ordinance as a standard in the rule concerning “Noises and Nuisances.” As requested, the adopted Rules also clarify the difference between a Continuing Violation and a Repeated Violation using the language already in the proposed rules.
During the comment period, a Member reminded all in attendance that Pinebrook is a community and that Members should always try to resolve disputes among themselves before involving the Association. The Board would like to emphasize this helpful suggestion. If you encounter behavior in our community that you believe is inconsistent with the Declaration or these Rules and Regulations, please discuss the situation with your neighbor if possible. Experience has shown that most issues can be resolved on that level. However, if you are not able to resolve the issue for any reason, you may always raise the matter with the Association.
Should it become necessary to make a complaint or report a violation of the Declaration or the Rules and Regulations, please do so in writing, by mail or email. Please refer to http://www.pbhoa.org/ for additional information. Please identify yourself and the other individual(s) involved, and include a description of the behavior at issue that includes, but may not be limited to, the location of the incident(s), time of day, frequency of behavior, photos or videos (with time stamps) if available, etc. The Association’s Trustees will investigate and attempt to resolve the situation, but please be patient and remember that we are all volunteers.
The Board wants to again thank all who participated in the June 6 meeting. Here are the Final Rules and Regulations as adopted. If you have questions or concerns about these Rules or any other issue at Pinebrook, you may go to the HOA contact form and submit a message to the Board.
