Welcome to our community!
February 6, 2018 HOA Annual Meeting
Note! As per our flyer mailed to homeowner’s of record, our annual meeting is scheduled for 7:00 pm February 6th, at the Hidden Oaks Clubhouse. This meeting is necessary because we did not have a quorum of eligible homeowners in attendance at our last meeting in January. Per our rules, the members who attend the second meeting will constitute a quorum. If you cannot attend please send your proxy to one of the current board members or to Paul Beard c/o Community Management.
February 3, 2018 If Your Car is Towed
In an effort to encourage compliance with our parking regulations, Hidden Oaks HOA maintains a contract with a private towing company. They may tow vehicles, improperly parked, without warning. This includes vehicles, boats, trailers etc. parked on the roadway between the hours of 2:00 am and 6:00 am, and those parked on sidewalks, common areas or other prohibited locations.
If your car is towed, call 801-262-4869 to arrange for it to be retrieved. You will have to pay them the towing fee and any storage costs that accrue. The HOA does not collect any money from this arrangement, nor do we direct the towing company as to which nights to patrol our streets.
You are responsible for your vehicle parking. Thanks!
January 2, 2018 HOA Annual Meeting

December 7, 2017 Dog Issues
To report dog nuisance issues to Sandy City call 801-799-3000 and press 7.
The operator will dispatch either the closest police officer or the closest Animal Control Officer. After hours, the police will respond. Note that this is a non-emergency number and that emergencies should be directed to 911.
Recently two children in our HOA were bitten, in separate incidents, by a dog off the leash and reportedly in the street. The HOA has investigated as thoroughly as possible and found that the dog owner, in this case, has taken responsibility and voluntarily surrendered the dog to Sandy City for whatever the City does with such animals.
Dogs barking, whether in your own backyard or on the leash being walked, is also a nuisance and violation of our HOA rules. Every month we receive complaints about barking dogs at various locations. If you receive a notice of warning about barking dogs, please consider that each resident has the right to expect to be able to enter their own backyards or front yards or common areas with the FULL expectation of peaceful use and enjoyment of their property without being subjected to challenges from barking dogs. Repeated dog barking is also a specific violation of Sandy City ordinances and you may be subject to fine from the City upon complaint. You may also receive a fine from the HOA for complaints about barking dogs.
We appreciate all dog owners cooperation with our rules for leashes and for cleanup.
July 23, 2017 ROAD CLOSURES IN HIDDEN OAKS HOA
Road closures will begin each affected start day at 7:30 am and the section of roads will remain closed until approximately 5:00 pm the following day.
The work being done includes crack seal and a complete seal coat. This is the work recommended by multiple asphalt companies who have inspected our roads, to extend the useful life of the roads we currently have.
See the handouts that were mailed and/or attached to every doorway this weekend for more details.
May 24, 2017 NEW KEYS REQUIRED FOR POOL & CLUBHOUSE ACCESS
Due to issues related to age of the old system, we have had to change key systems at the clubhouse and pool. The system is entirely new and will not interface with the old system. The new keys are the card-type, as opposed to the older key fob system. Property owners only may pick up new keys at: Community Management, 11238 Wyngate Lane, Sandy, UT, between the hours of 9:00 am to 4:30 pm M-F. You must bring proof of identity to be issued a new key. Keys will NOT be issued to renters or minors. Per HOA Rules, if you as a homeowner wish to allow a renter to use your key, you must make that designation, in writing, to the HOA at the Community Management office listed above. In order to fairly provide for access to HOA facilities, renters may NOT share access to common area facilities with property owners. If you designate a renter to use your key that designation carries over to all commonly owned HOA facilities such as the tennis court, the clubhouse and the racquet ball court and cannot be changed more than once in a six-month period. Violations of this rule will result in suspension of your key privileges. The new keys will also allow the HOA to better track those gaining access to our shared facilities as we monitor usage and vandalism.
New security cameras are also being installed. These will assist the board and Community Management in monitoring unauthorized activity and access at the clubhouse and pool.
MAY 9, 2017 IMPORTANT NOTICE!
We are experiencing a disappointing number of cars being parked overnight on our streets, or left sticking out from driveways into our traffic lanes. Both of these things are prohibited in the Hidden Oaks Community by virtue of our CC&R’s. As you may have noticed, our streets are narrow. They are also private streets, meaning they belong to the HOA, not to Sandy City. Parking on our narrow streets causes serious safety problems, not to mention the lack of consideration shown to other neighbors by cars blocking neighbors mailboxes and driveways. Be aware that cars parked overnight on the street, particularly between the hours of 2:00am and 6:00am, may be towed without notice. This regulation (under section 6.22) applies to Hidden Oaks streets year-round. You may receive an orange courtesy sticker on a first indication of a parking violation, or you may not. If your car is towed you will then have to deal with the towing company to get your car back. The Board has outsourced this work to a local towing company to help insure compliance. If your car is towed call Community Management for details about what you can do to recover your car at (801) 571-5597 before storage fees become burdensome.
In an effort to foster better communication between all of us, the Hidden Oaks Board of Directors has created this website. We hope that you will enjoy having the ability to contact us with better ease and we look forward to the benefits of a more efficient way of communicating with you.
The speed limit in our community is 15 mph. Please drive accordingly.
Please remember, vehicles are not permitted to park on sidewalks or on lawns within our community at any time. If you see this occurring, please contact Community Management at 801-571-5597.
Check out the section entitled NEWS! for updates on what’s happening in the community.

We especially commend those of you who have helped your neighbors to maintain their properties. We are so grateful for all of your hard work; your efforts affect our entire community in a positive way.
