FAQ

What is Stone’s Throw Condominium Association, Inc?

Stone’s Throw Condominium Association (STCA), is, incorporated, non-profit homeowners’ association (HOA), is a legal entity created for the purpose of developing, maintaining, and managing Stone’s Throw Condominiums. Stone’s Throw is a Federally Certified Property (FHA Certified).

What do you mean by FHA certified?

FHA Certification is the method used by HUD (the Department of Housing and Urban Development) to ensure that Condominium Complexes meet detailed criteria to ensure that they are financially stable and managed properly. HUD uses the certification process as a risk management tool to reduce the probability of foreclosures on FHA insured loans on condominiums. This new “FHA Approval Process” is a detailed and extensive review of the Condominium Projects legal documents, financials, and overall health of the community.

FHA Certification benefits the entire community, even if there is only one unit up for sale.  This means that in the future an FHA Loan can be assumed (including the interest rate) by a new buyer. With interest rates at an all-time low, this is a very valuable asset to our HOA community and will increase the value of units throughout the community.

Re-certify for FHA approval every two years. The next re-certification for our community will be JUNE 2018.

Where can I look up the certification?

You can view/pull up the certification on the government website hud.gov

Why must I register my pet and have a DNA record?

Stonesthrow Condominiums pride ourselves in being a “Pet-Friendly” Association. Due to a small number of residents failing to scoop dog waste, the Board voted, in May 2017, to implement DNA registration  for the safety, health and wellbeing of pets, residents and the environment. This effectively amended the pet rules and regulations which were made effective ______________ (this will be updated once flyers go out).

Initially, the Association tried to manage this problem as best we could; however, dog waste continued to be a problem as some residents did not collect after their pet and left their pet’s waste for others to deal with.

The board wished to provide a more attractive and healthy living environment for our residents, therefore, we/board are started a program known as PooPrints®. A DNA swab (collection) is taken from your pet and set up with PooPrint®. If any feaces/poop are seen on the association grounds, a sample is sent to the company to get a DNA reading of which dog it is in the association. A fine is imposed, as noted in the pet bylaws in the documents section.

 Registering a pet will provide accountability.

A copy of the pet registration form is under the documents/pets.

I was cited/fines by the association for a pet violation do to “not collecting”. Can I contest?

The DNA result are unique and 99.99%, and only match the pet poop tested. Unfortunately there is no way to contest.

Can I report any pet violations to the city?

Pets within the association have to adhere to the city ordinance as well.

If you notice a pet off a leash, lack on non cleaning by an owner or any other violation, please call ANIMAL CONTROL at 256-883-3788 and give a description of the animal, and if possible, the Condo number. This information will be logged into a database. All calls are anonymous.

You may also report the issue at the association website, under contact us.

Can my guest bring a pet to the association?

Due to liability reasons, and lack of registration of those animal, guests such as but not limited to friends/visiting family’ area absolutely NOT permitted to bring any pets to the association.

Where do I park my car?

All vehicles must be in running condition and must have a registered tag. One vehicle can be parked in front of the resident’s building.  Parking for additional vehicles and guests are outlined in the house rules located under documents on the association website:
