HOA Updates

January 25, 2021

Dear Friends and Neighbors.

We hope this finds everyone healthy. We wanted to take a oment to bring everyone up to date on what has happened in 2020 and current plans for 2021.

As you have noticed, all of our projects resulting from the widening of S. Old State have been 99% completed. The rip rap around the ponds was completed in 2019. Absent 4 Japanese Maple trees, the Entranceway beds were completed Summer, 2020. The Maples are slated to be installed this Spring. The fencing to be replaced was finished in Summer, 2020. Fencing that was not replaced (along E. Powell) was power washed.

There was irrigation work required in the Oak Creek entranceway bed because a storm uprooted a tree and irrigation pipes behind the Oak Creek monument. That irrigation repair included removing two 25-year-old white pine trees behind the monument which were replaced with 5 Junipers to look similar to the new design at S. Old State. There was also an irrigation repair at the south side of Sedona. Pipes were damaged during utility work.

This winter, there were 2 separate accidents where 3 sections of fence were damaged. On E. Powell, east of Oak Creek Dr., the section knocked down will not be replaced. Instead only the existing post that has holes in it where the rails of the destroyed section connected, will be replaced with a solid "end post" so holes are not visible. On S. Old State, 2 sections are being replaced. The work order has been signed and work should begin soon.

Finally, there is something wrong with one of the fountains; we won't know the scope of the problem until March.

With Covid issues, we continue to answer questions and complaints by phone and email. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Unfortunately, the March meeting will need to be canceled because of Covid and because the Township hall is not open for meetings. We will have to handle the election of trustees as we did last year. See instructions and ballot on the other side.

Respectfully,
Your Trustees

Safety Alert!

It has been brought to our attention that there has been a recent uptick in the number of car break-ins and other crimes throughout our community. Moving forward, we would like to note that it is our priority to keep our residents safe. So we would like you to contact and notify Oak Creek Homeowners Association if this has/does happen to you so that we are able to document the incidences. If notification is timely, we would like to alert residents by an email blast and posting on our website and Facebook page. Working together, we can keep the community and each other safe.  

Here are some safety tips:

  • Always keep your cars locked when parking in driveways and on streets; 
  • Do not keep valuables in cars;
  • While away, make your house look lived in (lights on timers, neighbors picking up mailers thrown in the yard or on your porch, etc.); 
  • Do not post, tweet, or share your travel plans on social media; 
  • Leave a spare key and emergency phone number with a trusted neighbor or friend;
  • Stop your mail and newspaper delivery (or ask a trusted neighbor to retrieve);
  • Remove garage door openers from any vehicles in your driveway or inside your garage;  
  • Lock garage entry doors; 
  • Trim shrubs/trees that are close to your home; 
  • If you have a alarm system, even if it is not monitored by police, use it. The alarm sound can scare off intruders.

    and if you see something, say something! Thank you for doing your part in helping to keep our community safe! 

There will not be a 2020 Fall Newsletter.  You can access our 2020 Spring Newsletter on our Newsletter page.
