Something New On Our Website

We thought we'd try something new by providing a new service to BHA Members.  On the right side of the website you will see ads from your Breckenridge Neighbors.   The ad must  be for a Breckenridge home based service using your home phone number and follow certain restrictions.  Your home based business must fall under the "Customary Home Occupation" definition (see below).  If interested contact the webmaster (See Contact Us).  

Customary Home Occupation:   Self-employed resident occupants in their private homes working at an occupation which is limited to the home, carried forth at home, employing no persons outside the household, utilizing no outside structure or equipment, and requiring no more off-street parking facilities than would ordinarily be used by the household.   The use would generally not include the receiving of clients but could include the receiving of one client at a time on an appointment basis, such as dressmaking, tailoring, preserving, home cooking, real estate agent, photographer, hobbies and crafts, income tax preparation, accounting services, attorney services, and the giving of a private music and dance lessons. Customary home occupation DOES NOT INCLUDE gift shop, antique shop, or art gallery or similar multi-customer service or retail establishment.

Our Breckenridge Entrance (a never ending project)

Every Spring it's time to prune and clean up the shrub and tree beds on the island and the white fence line.  For several years a few of us neighbors did this work ourselves, but it turned out to be a whole lot of back breaking work.  Last year and for now on we will paid a professional service to do the job with the help of your annual maintenance dues of $30.  Last year the cost was about $1,400.   If this work is not done annually, weeds will overtake the beds.     

Here are a few pictures showing some of the work done at the Breckenridge Entrance in 2006.   After Katrina destroyed the entrance trees we replaced them with two more beds to match the existing bed on the island.


Hurricane Information
Johnny asked me put this link on the BHA website.   I have visited many hurricane sites in the past, but I think this one is one of the best I've seen for graphic information when the server is not over loaded. Lots of Big Pictures and Charts. Check it out.

Breckenridge homes have been keeping pace with property values.

That has something to do with, as they say, Location, Location, Location. Another reason is that our neighborhood looks attractive to prospective buyers. Breckenridge offers nice looking homes and manicured yards that make the average home buyer think they would like to live here and willing to pay the price to do so. For many of us our home is our largest investment. So it just makes dollars and "sense" to keep our investment looking as attractive to others as well as ourselves.Keep in mind that any Realtor will tell you that all things considered, a $100 flower garden in your front yard can yield you an extra $1,000 or more when you sell.

 

Have you noticed how our neighborhood has been getting literally trashy lately. Specifically, the big ugly blue eye sore in front of many homes in our subdivision. While driving down our streets, it's hard to notice the nice looking homes behind the big blue garbage cans. Well, now we know why our covenants states that the garbage cans need to be stored out of public view. I know that is not necessarily an easy thing to do for everybody. My new big blue baby is twice the size of the normal size garbage can, but I did manage to find room for it in my garage. It sort of doubles as a work table top. Some neighbors have figured out ways to hide the can from public view on the side of the house behind a couple of bushes or behind a fence.
