Creekview Spring Updates - March 2023
Read on for our Spring updates, there are several so please read through all of them!
A few important updates for our neighborhood:
1. The city is looking at our trees and shrubs above sidewalks. Several neighbors have received a notice to bring the tree height into compliance. FYI, if you are new to Creekview, the city picks up bundled 4 ft. tree branches, etc. on Wednesdays at the curb. From our deed restrictions:
(l) No tree, shrub, or plant of any kind on any Lot shall be allowed to overhang of otherwise encroach upon any sidewalk or any other pedestrian way from ground level to a height of seven (7) feet without the prior written approval and authorization of the Architectural Control Committee.
2. Additionally, we have received several emails regarding homeowner fences throughout the neighborhood. Also from the deed restrictions:
(y) No Building or improvement (fences, etc.) shall be permitted to fall into disrepair, and any such Building shall at all times be kept in good condition and repair, adequately painted, or otherwise finished.
Spring is the perfect time to take care of any fence staining, board repair, garage doors, etc. issues that may need to be completed. In conjunction with any projects you may have planned for the spring, ensure you submit the form to the ACC if required.
3. School is in session and the bus makes a couple of trips in the neighborhood daily. Let’s keep all our children safe as we are driving. Since the construction at the front has been completed, many have noticed an increase in speeding as people head in or out of the neighborhood. Please be aware and keep this in mind.
4. The board has had on-going conversations with the homeowner and the city on the construction zone at 174 E. Bethel Road. We are working with the homeowner to bring the front into compliance with the deed restrictions and ensure a safe area for all.
5. Creekview HOA dues and USPS lost mail. Thank you to all the homeowners who paid after they mailed initial checks which were never received at our PO Box. These homeowners then received notices that no payment had been made. This year has certainly been a challenge for a batch of checks that were clearly lost by USPS from the first week of January. We did open an inquiry which was responded to by USPS that no mail was lost.
6. The railway fence upkeep has been started. Thank you to one of our neighbors who is donating his time and work to the neighborhood to clear the brush and make some repairs that are needed on the fence line. As many know, the upkeep of that fence is both an expensive and challenging task. While it is not yet completed, we really appreciate our neighbor sharing his expertise to help us. He is the latest in a long line of Creekview residents who have contributed to the on-going maintenance of the fence and we are all thankful!
7. Lastly, dog owners, please continue to be a good neighbor and pick up after your pups! Maybe consider the neighborhood a “Leave No Trace” area and ensure you pick up and carry with you anything they may leave behind during the walk 😊
