Vehicles driving on common ground under the power lines

Your Summit Lakes Board is in communication with the City of Westfield on numerous matters, but most recently about vehicles crossing over sidewalks. Please note the following from the City:

Per Gary Smith: the City owns the City streets, curbs, and the green space between the curbs and the City sidewalk. If any person crosses over the curb, green space and the sidewalk, they are encroaching on City property. A person can cross over the City curb, green space and City sidewalk, with a vehicle, if they get a one day encroachment permit from the City and pay a $25 fee. If the City observes someone encroaching common areas and they do not have a permit to do so they will be fined $500. The City ordinance is 03-04 of which a copy of the ordinance is attached.

This information was ascertained for Vendors as well as Owners who may need vehicle access to common area where approved.

Neighborhood Garage Sale May 3rd and 4th

There has been conversation on NextDoor for our Neighborhood Garage sale dates this year. It looks like the majority of people would like to do it from 08:00AM to 01:00PM on Friday and Saturday, May 3rd & 4th so we will do it then. We will attempt to get the garage sale signs out next week to help advertise it.

HOA Monthly Board Meeting


Every month the Summit Lakes HOA board meets to conduct business.  We do not vote to change CCR’s at these meetings.  While typically residents do not attend you are welcome to.  We will be meeting Wednesday, February 20th, at First Merchants Bank at 3333 IN-32 – in the Kroger “parking lot”- at 6:00 pm.  Seating is limited.  When we’ve finished conducting our business we will open the floor to questions briefly and then adjourn.  Notes from the meeting will be posted.
