Our Annual Meeting will be held on June 22, 2020 at 6 p.m. The Board will present a financial update and we will elect two directors to three-year terms. Read about the candidates on the Resident Tab of the website. We are planning a virtual Meet the Candidates event in the near future. Please submit questions for the candidates here.
Watch for details on the event on the website and Facebook page!
Communication is Key!
Get to know the official sources for information (HOA Website, Weekly Email Blasts, HOA Facebook Page, and the Crest Portal.) These resources are designed to be your first stop when you have an HOA question or would like to share your thoughts. The HOA Board is elected to represent the interests of the community, but in a neighborhood of more than 2600 homes there are lots of different opinions and we know we don't have all the answers. We would love to hear your ideas!
If you have a suggestion you think would benefit the community, please reach out. The Board meets monthly and entertains public comments at every business meeting. The more information and detail you can provide, the better. All formal presentations are given consideration. To be added to the agenda, please email the Board. We want to work with you to make the neighborhood somewhere we are all proud to call home.
Email Addresses to Remember
Why do I need so many website accounts?
We recognize that there may be some confusion about the different website registrations. The HOA website and the Crest Portal serve different functions and are managed by different entities. The HOA website is managed by volunteers of the home owners association and is where you will want to go for the neighborhood calendar, events information, resident news, neighborhood photo album, committee information and much more. The Crest Portal is managed by Crest and is where you go for items that are under Crest's control (deed restrictions, account balances, official legal documents, etc.).
Please take a few minutes to verify that you have both accounts. If you have questions, please email the board for clarification.
All six (6) tennis courts are now open for use! Please continue to follow guidelines for social distancing (no more than four players per court) and obey all the HOA Tennis Court rules. The restrooms and drinking fountains are not available at this time. Please plan accordingly.
The Fitness Center, Pools, and Playgrounds remain closed until further notice. We will share updates on additional openings as we have them.
Don't be a litter bug
We have noticed a huge spike in the usage of our parks and the MUD trails over the past two months. With this increase in traffic, there has also been an increase in litter. Please be courteous and clean up after yourself and your pets. Let's keep the parks and trails clean for everyone to enjoy.
Home Improvement Projects
We are thrilled that so many of you are taking this time to do home improvement projects, but please remember that our deed restrictions require that you submit an application for Architectural Review prior to beginning construction. You can find the link to the online application on the Crest Portal. The committee reviews applications as quickly as possible, but with the increase in the volume, some are taking up to 30 days to approve. Please plan ahead and submit your application well in advance to avoid delays in construction. And remember to complete the application in full. If you have questions about the process, email the Onsite Property Manager for clarification.
Do you have a great story to share? We are always looking for new and interesting features. The deadline for the Paperboy is the 28th of each month. Please submit articles and photos for inclusion in the July issue no later than May 28, 2020 to email@example.com.
