    We are unable to restrict soliciting per city ordinances, however all solicitors must be licensed by the city of Noblesville and issued a permit. What this means to you is that if someone comes to your door trying to solicit something, you can ask to see their permit and see f they do not have it with them ask them to leave. After they leave, you should call the police with a description of the person and tell them which way they went after they left your house.
     
     
  • What is the official mailbox post stain color, where can I get it?
    Here is the wood stain information.
     
    The official color stain for our mailbox posts sold at Otto's Street Solutions is a Woodsman Sagebrush.
     
    Unfortunately this stain is no longer available on it's own, however an approximate match can be found at Lowe's.  Reference : Olympic brand solid color stain, (Jefferson Tan) sold by the the quart.
     

    One quart will do 5-6 mailbox posts.
  • When does my cul-de-sac get plowed?
    The City is responsible for plowing all streets in the Meadows. All streets within the Meadows are considered primary routes by the City and therefore have high priority to be cleared.  Primary routes are the highest ranking of the three classifications the City uses to determine plow routes. 

    However, cul-de-sacs are considered "alternate routes" by the City , the lowest of the three classifications, and therefore are the last streets to get plowed by the City, if at all. The greater the snowfall or more treacherous the weather conditions (icing, etc.),  the longer it will take the City to get to the alternate routes. Therefore, the Meadows POA board has contracted with a snow removal contractor to clear the cul-de-sacs when the snowfall is 4" or greater.

  • Who do I contact about a property that has weeds more than 6" high?
    Weed problems should be reported to Justin Schuessler (776-6325 or you can email him at jschuessler@noblesville.in.us).
     
    Be sure to include the address of the property (or at least the approximate location).
     
  • Who do I contact if a sidewalk needs repaired?
    You should contact the Street Department which is 317-776-6348. You’ll get an automated answering menu, so just choose the operator, explain your question, and she can put you through to the right person.
     
  • Who do I contact about an issue with my street tree (between sidewalk and the street)?
    You would contact the city’s Urban Forester, at 317-776-6348.  Currently the City is responsible for removal and replacement of street trees, but it is basically a you-get-what-you-get, when it comes to the type of tree that the City plants.  We request specific breeds of trees as stated for the reasons below, so you can replace the tree yourself if you wish.  
     
    Due to the Japanese beetle issue with the Glens linden trees, and the potential ash borer problem with the Estates ash trees, the Board agreed unanimously to amend the street tree guidelines to allow all Meadows residents to select from the following types of trees for their street tree: linden, red maple, thornless honey locust, oak, or elm. The minimum 2* caliper requirement for any/all street tree remains in effect.
     
  • Why does my pool fob not work in the pool security system?
    There could be a legitimate reason as to why your fob does not work.  If you any have unpaid dues, fees or you have received a 2nd violation notice and not yet corrected the problem, your pool privileges may have been suspended. 
     
    If you believe that the above does not apply to you and your fob does not work, please either call the Meadows POA Voice Mail or send an email to hoa@meadowspoa.org. If fobs are lost or damaged you will be charged a $25 replacement fee.
     
    Note: all Fobs remain the property of the MPOA and are only assigned to the lot address for resident's use. 
     
  • Yard Light Info
    It is important for residents to note that it is a requirement by the City of Noblesville, as well as the MPOA’s Declaration of Restrictions and Rules & Regulations that a properly working dusk-to-dawn light must be on each lot in the Meadows. It is each homeowner’s responsibility to keep the yard light in operation at all times. Some yard lights simply require a new light bulb (white or non-colored bulbs); some just need the dusk-to-dawn sensor cleaned; while still others only need to have their GFI plug reset. If these quick cures don’t fix your lighting issue, you may need to contact a handyman or licensed electrician.
