SLR Spring Newsletter May 2016

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Slate Ridge residents

Note: I just got done passing our newsletters.  Kudos to all our residents the homes and yards look terrific, with the exception of a couple of homes and a couple of non-cedar wood mail boxes our subdivision looks great.  Thank you.

First, let me address the number of complaints I have received from residents regarding sheds built, placed or installed in Slate Ridge.  Sheds are NOT permitted in Slate Ridge as stated in our Deed Restrictions.  The deed restrictions for Slate Ridge, Drugan Ct, and Crosswick Ct can be found online at So residents who have built, installed or placed sheds are clearly in violations of our deeds.

Second, I heard the city of Reynoldsburg issued the permit(s). I called and spoke with Planning Administrator Eric Snowden at Reynoldsburg Department of Development.  Per my conversation with Eric, the city issued the permit(s) as required for any project. Now, Eric assured me that every homeowner was informed to check with the neighborhood Deed Restrictions prior to the start of the project.

The Slate Ridge residents and the Slate Ridge Homeowner Association are the parties responsible for enforcing our Deed Restrictions not the city. Moreover, the city issuance of the building permit does NOT circumvent our Deed Restrictions; meaning the sheds are still in violation of the Deeds.  Thus, the Slate Ridge homeowner association will act accordingly.

Here is a great reason why it is incredibly important to maintain your membership current, to support and participate in the homeowner’s association meetings.  I am positive that if more homeowners are aware of what affects all of us as residents and neighbors, incidents like this could be clearly avoided.

Now the fun stuff, please mark your calendars:

· Garage Sale Saturday June 11th, 2016 from 8:00AM to 2:00PM. Since the City of Reynoldsburg is hosting the ninth annual Community Clean Up Week from June 6th to June 14th.  We do not need a permit to hold a garage sale. We will advertise it until 2:00PM to try to get some of our Saturday back, but if you want to run longer you can.

· Our Annual Summer BBQ Saturday August 27th, 2016 for at Crosswick Ct from 5:00PM to 9:00PM. As always this is FREE to all paid members, we will provide food and drinks.  So please pay your annual $35 membership bring your family and a side dish, and meet and share with your neighbors

· Luminary and Carriage Rides December 17th, 2015.  More details later. Last year the turnout was fantastic.


All new residents as of March have received a welcome basket. Thank you Audrey Owens and company for making that happen.

Last year we also contracted a new lawn care company to clean up the entrances and they are still looking very nice.  We will probably have them come out and to touch them up again this year.

Speeding in Slate Ridge remains a big problem.  All I can say is to contact the Reynoldsburg Motor Patrol to complain. We are not the only subdivision in Reynoldsburg with speeders, so the more we contact the city, the more visibility and attention we get. If in fact a round-about is what is being built on the Palmer Rd. and Taylor Rd intersection, traffic through our subdivision will probably increase as well.

Last but not least please get current with your 2016 HOA Dues. If you need to know whether or not you are paid for 2016, drop me an email @ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

SLR Fall Newsletter December 2015

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Slate Ridge Residents:

The luminary and rides were a success. We had kids, parents, grand parents, friends, young and older couples who took advantage of a beautiful night to ride and see the luminaries. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the hot chocolate, hot coffee and cookies in a chilly night. Thanks to every resident who signed up and participated. I also want to thank every resident who helped organize the event, to the group of residents who helped build the luminary kits, the group who delivered each of them to every home, and last but not least the ones who helped with set up and tear down the tents. We also had current and past Slate Ridge residents who lend us their outdoor heaters to keep us warm. This is the kind of participation I have asked for and hopefully we can continue to build on. Happy Holidays...


Season’s greetings to all, 2015 has gone pretty fast and the holidays are now upon us.

We wish to announce a change in the Slate Ridge Board leadership. Brent Carey our president and Greg Merante our secretary both resigned their position effective this past October due to increased personal and professional obligations. We wish to thank Brent and Greg for both their time and efforts. During our last Board meeting we accepted both resignations and voted to appoint me, Jose Gomez, as acting President of the Slate Ridge Civic Association and Norm Brusk will be our interim secretary.

My first objective is to increase the number of board members. Slate Ridge has changed considerably since the original 170 plus homeowners. In order to have a successful homeowner association we need new residents and families to get actively involved by either becoming active board members and/or attending our monthly board meetings.  New members can help  bring new ideas, new changes and a new perspective more closely aligned with a newer Slate  Ridge to the homeowner association.

My second object is to increase the number of paid resident members.  We currently have fewer than 80 paid members. More importantly some of the Homeowner Association’s financial obligations such as maintenance, insurance, landscaping, neighborhood directory, the welcome package, event permits, website hosting and any organized event for the residents are not free. In an effort to keep the cost down some of the residents have continued to volunteer their personal time to maintain the website, produce and deliver the newsletter, clean the entrances, put together and deliver the luminary kits etc.

I am asking those who have not paid to please consider joining the association in 2016. The $35 annual membership fee is relatively insignificant for a neighborhood where the average home value is $202,535 according to On behalf of the board I am also asking those who may be interested in joining the board or if you are interested in attending the board meetings to please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . For information about our monthly board meetings and community activities please go to

Again I ask you to support our neighborhood by joining and actively participating in our planned events and activities. By joining today you will add value and community comradery that benefits all of our Slate Ridge neighbors and friends.

Jose Gomez, President

Upcoming Events:

Holiday Light up the night and Carriage Rides on December 19th 2015. We will deliver your Luminary Kit by Friday December 18, 2015. Please have your Luminaries ready to be set out on the curb by 5:00 p.m.  See instructions below

The Carriage Rides are free for Slate Ridge Civic Association Members. The staging area for the carriage rides will be in the Crosswick Court Cul-de-Sac. The Carriage Rides will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. Carriage Rides will take about 15 minutes around the neighborhood and you must register for your Carriage Ride by Friday December 18th by going on our Slate Ridge Website at Slate Ridge Holiday Carriage Rides or  go to

Next board meeting is scheduled for December 13th at 2:00PM at 5 Bean Café located at Stoney Creek Plaza, 2087 Baltimore-Reynoldsburg Rd.  We’ve invited residents and prospective new board members to participate. Please RSVP me via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it so we may plan accordingly. 5 Bean Café is a bit small for a larger crowd.  That way I can change the venue to accommodate a larger group.  Thank you

More News:

The Slate Ridge Association gave a $100 contribution to Keep Reynoldsburg Beautiful. the contribution goes toward the $300.00 10% matching funds for the Ohio EPA Grant for $3000.00. I think is important to partner with other local organizations especially those involved in the beatification of our city and surroundings.  Having worked in Grandview, Dublin and currently in New Albany; I think East Columbus sort of lag behind in beautification efforts.  Our resident and board member Arley Owens is the Executive Director for Keep Reynoldsburg Beautiful and maybe contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Small pet owners be aware that we had a resident report a coyote attack a small dog after the owner leashed to pet outside.  Thankfully, they came out and rescued the dog.  The dog required 20+ stitches, and it is doing ok now.
