UPDATE: Power Overload and Fire Update

A Delmarva power line broke and hit the ground due to high winds.

This shorted out one of the power phases and caused a power surge in to the HPN building, over heating our transformers. Thanks to ocean City fire department and surrounding stations in coordination with Delmarva Power, everything is restored and back to normal. No damage was done to the building, thankfully, the transformers are contained in concrete vaults and no units were affected.

Thanks, Tom Downy
HPN Management

NOTICE: Fire Alarm & Elevator Testing

Alarms will be sounding throughout the day and we will be going into every unit and testing the heat and smoke detectors as well.

Welcome, the start of the summer season at HPN!

To all HPN Owners

The Memorial Day Holiday is the traditional start of the summer season. With most COVID restrictions behind us and based on the significant increase in HPN occupancy rates over the past two weekends, the significant increase in visitors predicted for this summer from owners and their invited guests and visitors appears to be on track.

Based on owner recommendations, and to streamline building entry, exit and check-in, we have installed an automatic front door, and now take credit cards for those that need to register their cars. Additionally and in an effort to keep the lobby entrance clear, safe and non-threatening, all owners, their pets, guests and visitors will now be prohibited from gathering or standing in or around the front lobby entrance including the bench other than for very brief time periods. In particular the bench is intended for owner/guest use for brief periods while waiting for rides or other guests to arrive or while loading and unloading luggage, groceries, etc. This change is made in accordance with the provisions of HPN Bylaws Article XI, Section 2 and is effective immediately; violation of this prohibition may result in fines and/or legal action.

The Board of Directors has an obligation and duty to oversee and control the use of the common elements of the building for the benefit, safety and security of all owners and their invited guests. The front entrance to the lobby is a “common element” and the Board and building staff have received a number of complaints from guests and owners last summer and over the past 8 months; this has required us to implement this change, effective immediately.

Direct any questions or concerns to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please have a safe and enjoyable summer.

NOTICE: Fire Alarm Testing MONDAY December 21st 2020

|To: All Owners and Guests

As required by the Town of Ocean City, I have scheduled the annual test of the building’s Fire Alarm and evacuation systems to be conducted on Monday, December 21st. Alarms will be sounding throughout the day and we will be going into every unit and testing the heat and smoke detectors as well.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely, Tom Downey

UPDATE: Tom Surgery Successful!

As many of you know HPN Office Manger Tom Downey has been in need of back surgery for some time. Tom underwent surgery yesterday and the HPN Board is pleased to report that the surgery appears to be successful and that he is resting comfortably at home.

As you would expect Tom will need a few weeks of downtime to properly recuperate so effective immediately Tom will be out on a short (hopefully) Medical leave of absence. Although Tom’s wife Carolyn will occasionally be in the office catching up with paperwork for the most part the HPN Office will be closed until further notice. Pearlis and Rick will continue with their everyday building maintenance tasks but all non-routine activity will remain on hold until Tom has fully recovered and returns to work.

Tom is a tremendous asset to the HPN community and Board and we know all of you want to help insure his recovery goes smoothly and is not interrupted. We are hopeful Tom can return to work by mid-late November; in the interim please understand that Tom will not be able to respond to emails. If there is an issue that needs to be addressed, you can get a message to Pearlis/Rick by leaving a voicemail at the office. Your understanding is appreciated.

NOTICE: HPN Annual Meeting Notice Update 08.15.2020

August 15, 2020

Dear High Point North Owners,

Last Saturday, at our August 8th regularly scheduled Board meeting, the HPNC Board voted reluctantly, but unanimously, to cancel the annual “Meeting of Council” (Owners Meeting) which was scheduled to be held in-person on Saturday, September 12th at 9AM.

In lieu of the traditional gathering of owners at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, followed by a covered-dish luncheon and deck party, the Board has voted to conduct a modified version of “virtual meeting” so prevalent today given the current COVID crisis.

This decision was not made lightly, but was done so based on recent changes and restrictions on gathering size, ability to secure an adequate location, input from our insurance carriers and to ensure the safety of our owners.

Given that this Bylaw-mandated meeting is generally the one of the few opportunities many owners have of exchanging views with the Board and meeting with fellow owners in an informal social setting, it was and has been our desire to try to pull this meeting together if at all possible.

However, given the constantly fluctuating COVID-19 restrictions issued by state, county and city officials, we were already of the opinion a luncheon would simply not be feasible or in the best interest of our owners, nor would our traditional deck party featuring the music of our own Tor Damico and “Coastal Storm”.

Last week we were advised that St. Peter’s Church, our now-traditional venue reserved many months ago, remains closed to all meetings. Although we discussed the possibility of having a meeting on the deck by setting up tent-type canopies with enforced social-distancing/ facemask requirements, last week’s Tropical Storm Isaias reminded us that we are in the middle of hurricane season – over the past 15 years 7 meetings were potentially subject to hurricane-related weather and 3 deck parties were actually impacted by poor weather.

While our face-to-face meeting may be cancelled, it is still our intention to try and present and conduct all of the “business as usual” parts of our meeting but in a “virtual” format.

To this end the following scheduled has been adopted:

  • Friday, August 21st: Owners are encouraged to submit their concerns and questions by email* to Tom Downey at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; Tom will forward your message to the Board members for their review; the Board’s comments or response will be provided by email no later than September 11th.
  • Friday, August 28th: Information will be emailed to all owners outlining HPNC’s financial position as well as accomplishments during the past year.
  • Friday, August 28th: If you are interested in running, or would like to nominate someone to fill one of the two open BOD positions please send your qualifications to Lee Miller (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and/or Tom Downey. 
  • Monday, August 31st: An email* will be sent to all owners providing qualifications of those owners running for the two open Board positions. A ballot will be included and due back in the office no later than THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 10th.
  • Friday, September 11th: The Board will meet at 9AM in the HPNC office. Ballots will be counted and an email with election results will be sent out by end of day. Included in this email will be the Board’s response to owner’s questions.
  • Saturday, September 12th: new board members (present or by phone) will conduct an executive meeting in the office at 10 AM.

*For those few owners that cannot access emails the above information will be mailed.

At this time, there is only one piece of business that requires official action by the ownership, and that is elect Board Members to fill TWO vacancies on the Board. A ballot with the names of those owners who have expressed an intention to run, along with short biographical information will be sent on Monday August 31st, as outlined above.

We ask that you complete your ballot and return to the office at your earliest convenience, but not later than Thursday September 10th.

The entire Board is very disappointed that we will not have our usual opportunity to meet with owners to discuss HPNC business and to socialize. However, under the uncertain situation we find ourselves in these days we believe this type of “virtual meeting” is the safest way to accomplish our goal.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to Tom at the Office.
