        NC State Law Requires

                              Licensed Drivers Only

Golf Carts

Only licensed vehicles driven by licensed drivers are legal for use on our roads.  Other vehicles are prohibited and may be ticketed by the Sheriff. Golf carts must have lights and be registered in the county to be driven and then only by licensed drivers. Please help keep our neighborhood safe by following the speed limits and laws. If you see laws being broken and are so inclined, do not hesitate to call the Sheriff's office (919.856.6900). 

    
 
     Dog and Cat Owners
     Leash Requirements &
     Clean up

We ask that dog owners clean up after their pets as they walk the neighborhood. 

If you're walking your pet, it must be on a leash.  It does not matter how tame or small the pet is; they must be restrained if they are not in your home or in a fenced yard. Please note, this leash requirement applies to both dogs and cats. You can report strays or other issues with animals to Wake County Animal Control

Barking Dogs

When your dog barks continually please attend to it. This is especially true in the evenings when people are eating, relaxing, and sleeping, and in the early hours when some people may still be sleeping. Everyone appreciates your cooperation.

If a dog barks continually or if it violates the requirements in Article XIII of the Covenants, one can contact Wake County Animal Control (or call 919-212-7387) for assistance.

Obnoxious Noises & Annoyances

Article XI of the Protective Covenants for Turner Downs states that “No noxious or offensive activities shall be conducted or permitted upon any lot… or which may become a nuisance or an annoyance to the neighborhood.” Article XIII covers annoying sounds made by animals – e.g., barking dogs, etc.

Please be aware and considerate of your neighbors if you own loud equipment such as ATVs, gas-powered golf carts, motorcycles, powered scooters, etc. -- This is even more important "after hours."   
 

Open Fires - Outside burning of garbage or debris and camp fires are not allowed 

This violation falls under Article X, of the HOA Covenant --

"No garbage or debris shall be burned on any lot, nor may any lot be used as a dumping area."

After discussions with the Wake County Fire Marshall and due in part to the heavily wooded areas and accumulations of pine needles in Turner Downs, camp fires are not allowed on any lot.

Outdoor gas and charcoal grills are permitted. Also allowed are commercially available or custom built outdoor fireplaces and cooking areas. The Fire Marshall recommended using processed wood logs to minimize blowing sparks.

Parking on Streets

While we enjoy decent streets in our neighborhood, they are not quite wide enough to comfortably allow for parked cars. We encourage all residents to park their vehicles in their driveways or garages to keep the streets clear for traffic and pedestrians. Visitors and commercial vehicles will at times park on the roads. Please be careful when passing parked vehicles to avoid accidents.
 


No Solicitors Allowed

“No Solicitation” signs are posted at each of the entrances to Turner Downs. However, there is nothing to prevent people from entering our neighborhood and knocking on doors. If you are bothered by solicitors, inform them that solicitation is not permitted and ask them to please leave the neighborhood. A follow up call to the business might prevent future similar incidents.
 


Refurbishing/Repairing Your Mailbox
If interested, call the Post Man (919.427.0627) - NOTE THIS IS A NEW NUMBER! Please ask for Craig. 
If you prefer to do that type work yourself, a source for parts for that model mailbox is listed on the "Services and Assistance" page.

TEMPORARY ADJUSTMENT OF POOL RULES due to COVID-19 and Executive Order 141
In support of/accordance with Gov. Cooper's Executive Order 141 and Wake County Guidelines, and on the advisement of the Pool Management company, we have enacted modifications (which we hope are temporary) to the pool rules for the 2020 Summer Season.  Briefly, they are:
Reduced capacity - please see signage posted at the pool.  Please also be aware of how many people are in the pool, and if you have been there a while, consider making space for your neighbors who would like to enjoy it as well.  For now, we will not be enacting a sign-up process; we will rely on the honor system and the good will and respect of our community members.
No Guests on Weekends - we have enacted this restriction to prioritize use of the pool by members and their immediate families.
No one under 18 without an adult - because of the reduced capacity requirement, and no guest restriction on weekends (peak use time), we are temporarily requiring that kids under 18 be accompanied by an adult.
 
 
 
Completed Projects

Security Cameras installed at Pool House
 
In response to several incidents of vandalism at the pool (chairs, tables, umbrellas and umbrella bases had been chucked into the pool) the Board has installed several security cameras in and around the pool facilities.  Please be advised that the Board will immediately contact the Wake County Sheriff's dispatch should anyone be caught jumping the fences or attempting to enter the pool area after hours or during the off-season.  Board members will not personally intervene; rather we will request local law enforcement handle any and all trespassing and vandalism issues.
 
 
HOA DUES Due Date CHANGE for 2020
Please refer to the Board News section for details.  HOA dues will be due no later than the 28th of FEBRUARY effective Calendar Year 2020.
 
 
 
The "Little Free Library"
 
There is a "Little Free Library" at 5812 Turner Store Lane. This little library is stocked with books for children as well as fiction reads for adults. Stop by - take a book - return a book. You do NOT have to return the same book you take. In fact, the offerings in the Little Free Library will change more often if you return something different. Feel free to park in the driveway.  Questions? E-mail Beth (bb528@hotmail.com), or call (717-381-1002).
 
Traffic “Reminder” Signs
 
 

Residents routinely report concerns about drivers exceeding the posted speed limit for our streets – it’s  25 mph.  To help remind drivers 14 ea. new  “Slow Down” and “Caution” signs were erected along the sides of the streets.

Please check your speed and be aware of children, walkers, bicyclists, joggers, and others who may be on the roads.  Repeat offenders of the posted speed limit, including business vehicles, school buses, etc., should be reported to the Sheriff’s office.
 
 
Pool Information
 
The pool is open from the second Saturday in May until the last Sunday in September from dawn to dusk. If you have an issue with the pool or your pool access card please use the Contact Us section and select the Pool Issues contact when sending your request.

Refreshments at Pool
 
If you take refreshments to the pool, remember that for safety reasons glass containers are ABSOLUTELY NOT allowed.  Thank you for your cooperation.
 
    
 
Bike Rack at Pool
 
We had requests from residents who bike to the pool to provide a bike rack. A bike rack was installed which should eliminate the problem of where to park or leave your bike.
