Dear Princeton Lakes Residents, 
The Princeton Lakes HOA will have our annual meeting on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.  
First, it’s been a pleasure serving on the board for the last four years.  With that said, Carolyn Cooper and I have completed our four-year term and will stepping off the board.  
  • Phil Laney has graciously volunteered to step into the President role.  
  • Steve Patrick will be moving from the Pool Chair position to Vice President.  
  • Katie Kincaid will be moving from the Social Chair position to Secretary.
We will not be able to meet at Princeton Lakes Clubhouse to take the required membership votes. Therefore, we will meet virtually via a Zoom meeting and Members will vote via a Google form (link below).
  • The 2022 PLHOA budget can be view here.
  • The 2020 PLHOA Annual meeting minutes can be view here
  • The Zoom meeting link is here.  The Meeting ID is 741 6726 1968 and the Passcode is PLHA2021

Pool and Pig Roast Update from HOA President
Posted on Sep 3rd, 2020 Comments (0)
Pig Roast:
On August 31, 2020, the Governor extended emergency orders to expire on October 11, 2020.  This means that non-essential, non-profit organizations can not have gatherings of more than 50 people.  
Link to orders:  Governor Orders 
This is the 7th time the governor has extended the emergency orders. It looks like the orders are being extended about every 2 weeks.  In my personnel opinion: I don’t believe this will change until after the election, the kids go back to school, and we are able to attend sporting events.
The PLHOA Board has unanimously voted to tentatively reschedule the pig roast event to March of 2021.
We are planning on leaving to pool open a few weeks after Labor Day. Swim Atlanta will be able to provide life guards Saturday and Sunday. Monday through Friday will be Swim-at-your-own-risk. The pool close date is TBD. (Probably the 1st week in October depending on the weather).  Please remember that the pool closes at 8:30 pm.  
If you have any questions or concerns please give me a call or email
Pool Opening and Rules/Procedures!
Posted on May 18th, 2020 Comments (0)
Princeton Lakes Pool Will OPEN on Friday, May 22 at 11:00 a.m.! 
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, it will be necessary to establish additional pool rules to ensure the safety of all our members.  In order to adhere to the Georgia Department of Health (GDH) guidelines, we will be reducing the bathing load from 240 to 50.   
Members bring their own Pool Chairs. The PLHA pool chairs will be stored until it is safe to use. 
We will also be using a Pool reservation system.  Visit the reservation system by clicking this link:  Pool Reservation 2020
This system is not perfect and we ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation so that all members will be able to safely enjoy the pool.  Please only book one slot per day.  If a slot fills up, members will be wait listed. If you book and can not use your slot, please cancel.   These are unprecedented times and the Covid-19 situation is changing on an hourly basis. The PLHA Board will modify the following rules as the situation improves.   
Thank you for your patience, help and understanding.  Please let me know if there are any issues or concerns. 
Jim Skinner
Additional PLHA Pool Rules for the 2020 season:
  1. Members must bring their own Pool Chairs. (PLHA will not have to disinfect) 
  2. Pool capacity: Set bathing load to 50 people. (Prior bathing load was 240.)  When possible, we will monitor and increase bathing limit while still maintaining social distancing when possible. 
  3. Board members can waive any of these rules on an individual basis if there is an issue. 
  4. The Bathing Limit will be enforced. 
  5. Members must reserve a time slot and sign in at pool.  Reserve your pool time by clicking this link:  Pool Reservation 2020  
  6. Set blocks of time for members to use: 11:00-1:00,1:30-3:30, 4:00-6:00, 6:30-7:30 
  7. Members can only book one time slot per day.

  12. There will be NO lost and found.  Anything left at the end of slotted time will be discarded. 
Swim Team Season 2020 Announcements
Posted on May 9th, 2020 Comments (0)
Dear Neighbors, 
Unfortunately, Cobb County Swim League has decided to cancel the 2020 season.  I know this is going to disappoint so many of our children - mine included. Some people have asked if we could do a swim team within our own neighborhood - unfortunately, that probably isn’t an option either.   As of right now, the Princeton Lakes board is looking to Cobb County and Swim Atlanta for direction as to if, when and how to safely open the pool.  With so many unknowns these decisions could come down last minute making planning anything structured difficult.
Let's all keep our fingers crossed that the pool will be able to open and that our kids will enjoy a summer filled with unstructured swimming and splashing with friends and family:). Stay healthy!

Please see message below from Gretchen Patrick regarding Swim Team. 
Hello Neighbors!

Good news!  The Princeton Lakes Swim team will survive another year!    We’ve had several people come forward to help with organizing our season and I can’t thank them enough. What I would like to do is have a meeting with everyone who reached out to me as well as any additional people interested in volunteering.  I figure if we get together then we can form pairings/ small groups and make the positions even easier.  

I know meetings are always hard with everyone’s schedules but if we could get together on Wednesday, Feb 26th @7pm in the clubhouse I will promise it to be the only meeting of the entire season!  Please let me know if you offered to volunteer but cannot attend.

Thank you,

Please see message below from Gretchen Patrick regarding the Princeton Lakes Swim Team.  Email her directly at princetonlakesswim@gmail.com for more information.
Dear Friends,
As 2020 gets underway it’s time to start thinking about the Princeton Lakes Piranhas - our summer swim team!   By now, most of you know that we are looking for a new group of volunteers to take us through this upcoming season.   Kendall Andrews (Co- coordinator and treasurer), Christy Jones (volunteer coordinator), Stacie Pester (concessions) and myself (Coordinator) are all retiring from our current roles for a variety of reasons (moving, jobs, etc).  Kendall, Christy and Stacie will all be permanently retiring…I am offering to stay on as a co-coordinator for transitional guidance and support - if and only if someone steps up to take the reigns. 
If you’re interested but need to further understand the commitment / volunteer requirements, we would love to sit down and explain them in detail!  Reach out 678-457-4048 or princetonlakesswim@gmail.com.
Also, we are looking for a new head swim coach.   Please pass this along to anyone you know who may fit the requirements below. 
Thank you, 
Gretchen Patrick

Notice Regarding Proposed Legislation
Posted on Mar 4th, 2019 Comments (0)
From the ECCA:  
It is not often that the East Cobb Civic Association issues a legislative alert.  However, companion bills currently making their way through the Georgia General Assembly need the attention of every citizen who believes in local control of zoning and land use in their community.  Please take a moment to read through this and take action.  You CAN make a difference.  

House Bill 302 and Senate Bill 172 are virtually identical.  These bills will strip away the authority for city and county governments to regulate single and two-family homes built in their communities.  Under the terms of these Bills, the regulatory authority for the construction, placement, and size of these homes would be taken over by the state.  
Should this legislation pass, it would strip all local governments in the state of any say in the regulation of single and two-family homes constructed in local neighborhoods.  Its passage would also mean that local citizens would no longer have a voice in those decisions.  
At its meeting on Tuesday, February 26, the Cobb County Commission voted unanimously to oppose these bills.  Other local government bodies are starting to go on the record opposing them as well. 
At the regular meeting of the ECCA on Wednesday, February 27, the members went on the record supporting the position of the Cobb County Commissioners.  The members also asked that its individual and subdivision members express their opposition to this move by the state by contacting their state representative and senator - or better yet, the entire Cobb delegation - and telling them that they oppose passage of HB 302 and SB 172.  
To view the bills, you can go to the Georgia General Assembly hom page and search for SB 172 and/or HB 302.  
Don't know what district you're in?  Go to www.openstates.org, click the "Find Your Legislator" tab and search with our address. 
Finally, want to know how to contact your legislator?  Go online to the ECCA website and view the Cobb County Legislative Delegation listing, which can be found under Resources/State of Georgia.  Find your legislators, and let them know that House Bill 302 and Senate Bill 172 should not pass. 
Thank you for taking the time to help with this important effort. 
Linda Carver, President
East Cobb Civic Association
