This year’s annual meeting was a success as a quorum was established and a new Board was elected with several new faces added. Josh Martin will continue as President, Natalie Peters will continue as Treasurer, and both Matt Good and David Hoye will stay on as members of the ARC. Brett Packer is back on the board as vice president and Debbie Smothermon is our new secretary. Kristen Fuller has joined the ARC and was elected chairman. The most notable decision was the decision by members to remove the stop signs on Pheasant Hill, which many homeowners have complained about

To help ensure that the beauty of our neighborhood is not diminished by neglectful homeowners, the Board has enacted a Lawn Maintenance Policy that establishes basic standards. Most already go well above and beyond these standards but the new policy enables the Board to hold those who don’t accountable. To read the new policy, select from the main menu above “HOA Business”; submenus “Records & Documents”; “Policies.”
Quail Creek resident, Justin Hood, has risen to the rank of Chief in the Dallas Fire Department! This achievement is extraordinary, especially in light of the size of the department and a highly competitive atmosphere among firefighters. As he did when he was working to earn the rank of Lieutenant and Captain, Justin faced a comprehensive written exam to qualify as a finalist. The real test took place a few weeks later at the Kay Bailey Convention Center in Dallas where he faced a rigorous three-day interview process, where Fire Chief’s from around the nation were flown in to evaluate candidates that were confronted
Last night at approximately 10pm our dear neighbor Mr. Lonnie Cannon passed away at his home surrounded by his family. Lonnie & his beloved wife Marilyn moved here about three years ago from East Texas so that Marilyn could be closer to doctors as she successfully battled cancer. A few months ago, however, Lonnie was diagnosed with stage four cancer. Lonnie loved sitting on his back porch looking out to watch the cows graze in the open pasture. When warm weather came around each year he was often seen mounted on his riding mower or tending the landscape that has always
Two “near misses” have been recently reported to us at the corner of Pheasant Hill and Partridge when drivers have failed to observe the stop sign. There’s likely more. As a reminder, the members voted to keep the stop sign at the intersection in October of 2015 in an effort to increase safety. Please observe all the traffic signs in the neighborhood, stop signs and speed limit signs alike! Nobody wants to wreck their day!

Over the course of several weeks, homeowners have awoken to the images above, tracks through a portion of 3 different yards. It appears to have been made by a higher profile vehicle with a fairly narrow wheel base and tire tread. Besides the aesthetic aspect of mud tracks through the yards, there is potential for damage to sprinkler heads and other irrigation. It’s vandalism and could lead to unnecessary homeowner repairs. Please be watchful for unfamiliar vehicles and report suspicious vehicles or observed vandalism to the Sheriff’s Department.
