Creekside Village Newsletter - December, 2019

Hello Neighbors – we wish you a very happy holiday season.  As 2019 comes to a close, we want to offer our sincere thanks to all of our neighbors and volunteers that make Creekside such a great place to live. 
Please Note!  Effective January 1, 2020:
·         Monthly HOA fees increase to $440. 
·         [Gate code has been changed.  Check your email.]*
Creekside Caroling.  Christmas Caroling will begin at 1:30 on Saturday December 21st!  Remember to turn on your house lights if you want a visit from the Creekside Carolers.  We thank the Carolers for braving the cold to bring this touch of joy to our community.  Carolyn and Dick Walsh will host refreshments for the carolers afterwards.  Chair:  Mary Robbins and Carolyn Walsh
Parking Rules.  While the holidays bring us joy as we host family and friends, they can bring increased traffic and unwanted guests—car prowls and residential theft.  Creekside’s parking rules prevent crime and promote pedestrian safety year ‘round.  Please remember:
·        Overnight Parking is restricted to garages, common area guest spaces, and the Recreational Vehicle Facility (RVF).  Residents may park overnight on garage ramps only for short periods in order to accommodate guests or special needs and shall notify the BOD in these cases.
·        Guest Parking is available for non-residents only, including service providers, and is limited to two-weeks, unless otherwise permitted by the BOD.
·        Common Areas.  Parking in common areas is restricted to guest spaces.  Parking is not permitted on grass or in roadways.  Vehicles may not extend beyond curbs and driveways, obscure sight lines, or otherwise inhibit use of roadways.
Tree Removal News Update.  In early January, the Association will tag certain trees for removal.  This includes the dead cedar trees west of Creekside Circle and trees that are growing into roof systems, eaves, gutters and downspouts, intruding onto siding, lifting drainage pipes, or otherwise presenting a threat to infrastructure.  Residents will receive more detailed information as the project develops.  Contact Leads: Norm Culbert and Craig Ilman
Board Opening.  Dick Walsh will leave the Board after the annual meeting in February.  Thank you Dick!  We are looking for a new board member.  Getting involved is the best way to protect your investment and serve our community.  We are all in this together. Please let us know if you are interested and available to serve. Contact Lead:  Dick Walsh
The next Board Workshop is Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (9:00 AM at the Methodist Church) and the Board of Director’s meeting is Thursday, January 23, 2020 (8:30 AM at the Senior Center).  Mark your calendars now for the Annual Meeting on February 20, 2020. 
Neighbors, we hope your holidays are merry and bright.   
Peggy Noethlich, BOD Secretary
