Geist Patrol has asked us to remind our residents that anyone at anytime can become a victim of a crime of opportunity.  Therefore, please:

  • Immediately call Geist Patrol at 317-842-8082 (before you post on social media) to report any suspicious person, vehicle, or activity.
  • Lock all vehicles parked outside and remove all valuables.
  • Turn on your exterior lights from dusk until dawn.
  • Keep your garage door closed and lock the door from the garage to your home.
  • If you have a security system, use it when leaving your home or overnight.

Geist Patrol is available 24/7/365 and continuously patrols all GHPOA communities.  By immediately contacting these professional law enforcement Officers to report any suspicious person, vehicle, or activity we are partnering with them to maintain the safety and security of our Association.

New GHPOA Website Launched

GHPOA is pleased to announce the launch of our new website. As previously stated, our property management company underwrote the cost of the new website because the site they provided was not able to meet our needs.

Our website is a public website that contains comprehensive information about our Association. However, proprietary information (such as budget, financials, and minutes) which is available to all property owners must viewed by registering at our TownSq portal. Registration also enables you to receive immediate email announcements from GHPOA. To register, please visit our website and scroll down on the home page and locate the “Please Register” paragraph. The email address you provide is secure and will not be sold or shared with anyone.

We encourage you to visit our new website. If you have previously visited our website, the URL might be in your computer cache. Therefore, please use the following link: to be certain that you can view the new site.

2020 “Deck the Homes” Winners

GHPOA is pleased to announce the winners of our 2020 “Deck the Homes” contest. Our judge, Admirals Bay resident Brenda Fraser who is the owner of Dragonflies and Bows, drove by each home twice and evaluated each entry on the basis of creativity, use of holiday lights and use of holiday decorations. The quality of the submitted photo was not judged. And the winners are:

Grand Prize: The Schuller Family of Admirals Pointe
1st Prize: The Halbach Family of Feather Cove I
2nd Prize: The Saxton Family of Admirals Bay
3rd Prize: The McGuire Family of Feather Cove I
We also wish to acknowledge with grateful appreciation the prizes donated by Estes Design (GHPOA sailboat mailbox), and gift certificates from Charleston’s Restaurant and Wolfies at Geist.

The goal of the contest is to foster a sense of community pride and share the holiday spirit. We are pleased to report that the contest has grown in popularity each year. In addition, we thank each of our residents who participated and contributed to the success of this community-wide event.

Voting for Amendment Issue Ends

Voting for Amendment Issue Ends

Voting for the amendment to the GHPOA Declaration of Restrictions ended on Oct 31,2020.

The amendment was to add language to the Declaration which would clarify the proper procedures for changing the Declaration in the future. Specifically, the amendment would have lowered the percentage of votes necessary to make any changes to our Declaration which was adopted in 1979, and has become outdated. Any change currently requires 75% of the membership to approve. With a community of 2380 residents, this would be approval from 1785 residents.   The Board proposed this amendment in an effort to allow the community to be able to achieve having updated and relevant governing documents. These would provide a more conducive environment to protect the value of our community.

Unfortunately, the measure failed.  The final vote on this amendment was 772 in favor to 311 opposed, far short of the 1785 votes required.  We believe there were a number of reasons why this amendment was not sufficiently supported by our residents, many having to do with incorrect interpretations of the goal of the effort, despite the Board’s best efforts to provide correct information. This in turn created inaccurate messaging on social media which greatly hurt the effort. The Board will continue to look for ways to try to update our governing documents in an effort to fulfill our responsibility of protecting and enhancing property values.

Yard Signs

As you may know, the GHPOA governing documents include a covenant stating that signs or advertisements cannot be displayed on any lot in the development. Political signs are an exception to this rule, and their use is governed by State statute.  

Earlier this Spring, due to Covid-19, residents expressed a desire to be able to display signage related to the pandemic including health care worker support and recognition for students who were graduating without the usual ceremony. In response, and in an effort to be sensitive to the significance and importance of these signs to residents, the GHPOA Board paused the enforcement of signage which relates to Covid-19 and its impact on individuals through the end of August. Contractor signs were still not permitted to be displayed. This suspension period will soon expire, and the Board has voted to reinstate our usual enforcement for yard signs, effective Sept 1. We hope that the break from sign enforcement has provided your family with an opportunity to express meaningful support for topics of importance during this unusual time.

Thank you.

The event will be held on Friday and Saturday, Sept 18 and 19, from 8am-4pm. Signage will be placed in all 12 of our neighborhoods advertising the event, and a newspaper ad will be placed in the Indianapolis Star. All residents are invited to participate in their individual neighborhoods, and it is suggested that Covid-19 guidelines be followed. This has always been a popular event in GHPOA with good participation. We hope that residents find this to be a welcome opportunity to clean out closets and garages and sell some unwanted items.
