Tips for New Neighbors

We're glad you’re here!

With more than 1,200 homes in Whitehall, we have many opportunities to join together for neighborhood enhancement, socializing, and community projects. We hope you will participate in some of our neighborhood activities.

 

All of the information on this page (and more) is in the downloadable New Neighbors Welcome Packet (pdf 630kb)

 

Am I a member of the Whitehall Homeowners Association?

As residents of Whitehall, the adults in your household are already members of the Whitehall Homeowners Association. When you pay the very nominal annual dues, you’ll also be eligible to vote in elections and on Association issues.

Scroll to the bottom of the screen if you need a membership form. 

 

What does the Association do?

Your dues and your participation support activities such as the Christmas Lights contest, Fourth of July parade, block parties, and more. The Association also encourages neighbors to maintain and improve their properties, and works with Lexington County and other government entities to improve infrastructure maintenance.

The Association also provides practical support for other neighborhood organizations, such as the Whitehall Garden Club and Whitehall Neighborhood Watch.

 

Where can I find more info about the Association and my neighborhood?

This website is regularly updated with current neighborhood events, Yard of the Month winners, and more. It also has information about the variety of covenants and deed restrictions in place in the neighborhood, the Association’s by-laws, Association newsletters, and more. 

You can use the Contact Us page to send an email to the Association. Use the navigation links below to learn more about WHOA and the many other community organizations and public services you'll want to know about. 

We hope the information here and elsewhere on the website will help you become more acquainted with your new neighborhood and the surrounding areas. Please contact us if you have any questions, or if we can help you in any way. We are glad you’re here, and we welcome you to Whitehall!

The mission of the Whitehall Garden Club is to be a force for good that promotes all aspects of gardening, focusing on preservation and restoration of historic gardens, conservation and environmental protection of natural resources, education of members and youth organizations, civic beautification, horticulture, and floral design.
 
The Club is part of The Garden Clubs of South Carolina, Inc., a non-profit organization consisting of 4,896 members, 199 Garden Clubs, and 19 Councils. While the Whitehall Garden Club is not associated with the Whitehall Homeowners Association, its activities benefit all Whitehall homeowners, and the WHOA Board appreciates and recognizes its members’ efforts.
 
The Whitehall Garden Club holds periodic neighborhood Club meetings, and also attends Garden Council meetings in Columbia. In addition, the Garden Club is responsible for selecting the recipients of the Whitehall Yard of the Month awards. Yard of the Month winners receive special recognition with a sign to display in their yards for that month, and publication on the WHOA website and newsletters.

 
Whitehall Neighborhood Watch
 
 
All Whitehall residents are invited to participate in Neighborhood Watch meetings and events, which are held quarterly throughout the year. Our activities include guest speakers regarding relevant crime and safety issues, as well as neighborhood cleanup and service projects. We also participate in the annual National Night Out event, which is held in August. 
 
Involvement in Neighborhood Watch activities is a great way to get to know your neighbors, while helping to strengthen our community. Meeting and event dates are posted on the this website, and on the Whitehall Neighborhood Watch Facebook page and on NextDoor. 
 
Please join us as we work together to keep our neighborhood a safe place to live. If you have questions, please email us.
 
Although Whitehall Neighborhood Watch is not a function of the Whitehall Homeowners Association, the WHOA supports crime prevention efforts in our neighborhood, and safety among our residents, and provides the financial support for our projects and activities. Your annual payment of WHOA Membership dues helps to ensure that we are able to continue these efforts in the future.

This organization was formed in 2014 to maintain and manage Whitehall's four lakes, and to ensure compliance with DHEC requirements. If yours is one of the 46 homes located around the Whitehall lakes, please contact this organization for additional information pertaining to your area.
