AT&T Fiber Project Update

June 4th, 2019 No comments

Hello, it has come to the attention of the HOA that homeowners are wanting the HOA to get involved in grievances with AT&T. KMC is currently providing direction with any issues, but we wanted to provide you with a few details, including who you should reach out to for questions, concerns, and complaints.

*AT&T didn’t notify or ask permission (to/of the HOA) to run fiber lines.

*AT&T worked within their utility easement.

*AT&T committed to “make it right”.

*Any issues are between the homeowner and AT&T.

If you have any concerns, questions, or complaints, you can contact:

Shak Ali of Verita Telecommunications Corporation

Office: (734) 862-4790

Franklin Trace Homeowners,

As the fall season transitions into winter, we wanted to send a friendly reminder about the fallen leaves that can clog storm drains. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to clean up the leaves in and around the storm drains, if your property abuts up to one of the drains.

Please Vote – Franklin Trace Solar Policy Amendment

September 6th, 2018 2 comments

Dear Franklin Trace Homeowners,

You all recently received a package in the mail asking for your vote on how Solar should be handled in Franklin Trace.

It’s extremely important that we reach resolution on this issue. We need to establish clear guidelines for the community and eliminate the current ambiguity. Please review the packet and vote for the option that you prefer. Fewer than 50% have responded so far.

To recap, 3 options are being presented. Please refer to the document for full details, this is a summary only:

  1. Allow only solar shingles. Solar panels will not be permitted.
  2. Allow only solar shingles on front roofs, and allow solar panels (or solar shingles) on non-street facing roofs.
  3. Allow solar panels on front roofs and non-street facing roofs.

To answer one question that was asked by a homeowner: This amendment DOES NOT REQUIRE homeowners to adopt solar. This amendment is to establish clear guidelines for solar, should a homeowner elect to install solar at their residence.

If you have any questions or need to have the packet resent to you, please contact us using the contact form at http://franklintrace.com/contact/
