Q: How can I be added to the Turpin Hills Directory? How can I change my information?
A: The directory comprises of members only.  If you are not already one, please consider membership. Complete this webform and click submit or send an email with your request or changes to turpinhills@gmail.com.

Q: Where can I get one of the green/blue reflective signs for my house.
A: You can order these from the Anderson Township Fire Department and help the police and fire departments readily identify your house when seconds matter. They are $20 each and can be ordered using this form. If you have any questions, or would like more information, feel free to call Fire Headquarters at 513-688-8400 (M-F 8-4:30).

Q: Where can we park on the street?
A: Turpin Hill residents typically have abundant driveways so they can keep the streets clear of vehicles. By township resolution the neighborhood has a parking restriction on Stirrup Road and Bentley Court during school days and by law parking on the side of the street with the fire hydrant is prohibited.  Aside from those 2 restrictions, here’s a few things to keep in mind if you are hosting a party or have a short term overflow of vehicles:

  1. According to Anderson Police, no vehicle can remain in the same spot for more than 72 hrs
  2. Be courteous to your neighbors and keep excess cars in front of your property whenever possible.

Q: What are dues used to pay for?
A: Your dues are used to keep the entrances looking well-kept and inviting, holiday decorations, street sign replacement and added security patrols on weekends, among many other things.

Annual dues are solicited in the fall and due by Dec. 1. Only people who are current on dues will receive a directory.

Q: What powers do the Civic Association Trustees have?
A: Trustees are non-paid, non-elected volunteers who represent the wishes of their territories on the Civic Association Board. They can facilitate neighborhood development, ensure maintenance, and nurture good neighborhood relations. There are no enforceable covenants in Turpin Hills and trustees cannot enforce laws. If you see or know of someone who is breaking a law, please contact Anderson Township Police.

Q: What are the rules about door-to-door solicitations?
A: Anderson Township used to prohibit door-to-door for-profit sales.  However, the township trustees did not renew the resolution, so any solicitors are legal and cannot be cited for solicitation reasons alone. However, please call the police if you feel a solicitor has committed a crime or have reason to suspect they may have criminal intent.

Non-profit sales, such as those conducted by student organizations and all non-profits seeking donations, are also legal, as are sales conducted on the streets (like ice cream trucks) and newspaper delivery.

Q: Who can put up signs at the front entrances?
A: Having a lot of signs at the entrance to a neighborhood does not enhance its appeal so we respectfully request that your refrain from posting signs. Professional realtors are asked to respect our request to only post Open House signs Fri-Sun.

Q: Does Turpin Hills have a curfew?
A: Anderson Township has a curfew. Individuals under the age of 18 are under curfew restrictions from midnight to 5 a.m. Restrictions on being out during this time do not apply if they are coming from a school function or work function.

Q: What can be done about a barking dog that doesn’t stop?
A: Anderson Township has laws about barking dogs.

Q: Where can I get more information about the laws in Anderson Township?
A:  The township website is the best place to start, also the folks who work at the township offices are very helpful if you would rather call them, the main phone number is 513-688-8400
