Happy Fall everyone!

Isn’t it amazing how 95 degrees feels cool after this past summer?!  A few updates from your HOA board:

 

  1. National Night Out (NNO) will be Tuesday, October 3rd at 5:30-7:30.  As in prior years, we will have food, drink and fun at the Bethel cul-de-sac.  Coppell first responders also typically visit so join us for NNO! 
  2. Tree Trimming – we have received bids and selected a company to take out the dead tree in the median and provide tree trimming for the front entry at the bridge.  We are also in process of getting estimates for alley trimming and a couple of Bethel cul-de-sac trees as well.  The summer was also very tough on our trees!  Thank you for your patience while we gathered quotes.  We should see this underway and completed within the next 30 days.
  3. Neighborhood Survey – delayed but still to be done.  Anticipate seeing details on this after NNO
  4. City of Coppell Watering – Good news, we are back to Stage 1: Water Awareness: Under Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency and Water Conservation Plan, residents and businesses may irrigate their properties any day of the week. No outside watering is allowed between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm, with the exception of hand watering, the use of non-spray irrigation systems, and the use of soaker hoses, which will be allowed all days, at all times. 
  5. HOA Board Meeting – There will be a meeting of the HOA Board on Sunday, October 1st at 1:00 PM.  The first 15 minutes will be “open” for any homeowners to provide comments or input for the board to add to the agenda for the next meeting or take action on (i.e. repair request, etc.).  This is to provide input, not to work any topic at the meeting.  The balance of the meeting time will be to cover the following:
    1. Open Session (~45 min via zoom - details to be posted later this week)
      1. Gather Homeowner input (15 min)
      2. Treasurer updates
      3. Infrastructure updates (repairs underway, etc.)
      4. Committee Updates (social, welcome, etc.)
      5. Outstanding issues not covered above
    2. Executive Session (zoom to be turned off)
  6. Creek Lots – For those living on the creek, a reminder that according to deed restrictions, maintenance of the drainage areas is to be maintained by the lot owner.  With the fall storms and rain almost upon us, it is very important not to impede the natural flows through these areas.  If a tree falls into the creek, you should notify the city right away as they are responsible to clear a blockage in the creek.
  7. Garbage & Recycling - Recently the City of Coppell Street Dept. sent out information to all households and businesses dealing with City pickup of trash and recycling.  If you missed it, this is an abbreviated summary. 

The language from the Division that covers trash and recycling is abbreviated below:
”Occupants and owners of residential properties shall prevent the excessive and unsightly accumulation of solid waste, recyclable materials, and yard trimmings upon the property and the public thoroughfares adjoining the property. Occupants and owners shall accumulate and store solid waste, recyclable materials, and yard trimmings behind the building line until the day of, or the evening before, such property's scheduled collection day.
Occupants of residential properties shall place set-outs (materials) at appropriate location at or before 7:00 a.m. but not prior to 6:00 p.m. the day prior to the scheduled collection day. Occupants of residential properties shall remove cans, carts, and materials not collected to behind the building line after sundown on the day the franchisee (Republic Services) attempts to provide collection but before 7:00 a.m. the next day.“
Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Recycling  Coppell residents can request Republic Services to have their Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and E-Waste collected (the form at the link below details what can and cannot be picked up):

  • The HHW service is available to each household once each month.
  • To schedule your HHW pickup, please fill out the Household Hazardous Waste and E-waste Collection Instructions Form (PDF) and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  
  • HHW bags will be delivered to you along with proper instructions on how to package the material for collection on the next available Wednesday.
  • If you have any questions, please call 972-462-5164.
  • Be prepared to answer the following questions about the waste you wish to dispose of:
    • What type of waste do you have?
    • What is the amount of waste? (how many gallons, etc.)
    • What size containers do you have?

Last but not least, connection to Creekview Deed Restrictions:  
You may have not thought about the deed restrictions addressing trash, recycling and hazardous waste storage but it does. The Deed Restrictions state that no exterior storage of any items of any kind or it requires prior approval of the Architectural Control Committee.  Any approval would require attractive screening or concealment from view from neighboring properties, pathways and streets per the Deed restrictions. If you leave your trash/ recycle/ hazardous bins out all or most of the time in view from your neighbors you will have to find a different methodology to deal with your storage needs.

If you have a situation that falls in the above, contact HOA officers and Architectural Committee members to discuss a possible remedy. Generally, this would be mostly significant to the front view of your property.
