On June 22, 2018, Goodwin Harrison Management arranged for a civil engineering firm to inspect the drainage ditches at the front of each lot within the Quail Creek Subdivision. At that time, the primary area of concern was along the East side of Pheasant Hill. Several lots had standing water issues and Goodwin Harrison volunteered to initiate the inspection at no charge to the HOA. The inspection report was emailed to the Homeowners on October 19th and discussed during the October 22nd HOA Regular Board Meeting. Although the report from SBSA included a bid for a grading and drainage plan
Utilizing the existing stop sign poles to emphasize the importance of driver respect for speed in consideration of children and pets, the Board followed through on the vote by homeowners to remove the stop signs on Pheasant Hill since so many have ignored them, which has created an unintentional safety hazard since the Sheriff cannot enforce traffic violations in Quail Creek because the streets are private, not public. However, rather than just removing the stop signs, for safety the Board waited to remove the stop signs until new signs came in to alert traffic on Partridge Drive to the fact
Beginning January 1, 2019 trash pickup will be on Thursdays instead of Fridays and trash bins will be swapped out with new ones. That’s because the City has changed the trash service contractor to Community Waste Disposal (CWD), the largest independently-owned solid waste and recycling company in the DFW area. Expect to see mailings from CWD soon regarding the transition to the new trash bins, which will utilize 95-gallon trash and/or recycling cart. In addition to this service, CWD will collect up to four (4) cubic yards of bulk/brush weekly. The new company will also be utilizing semi-automated rear load
The transitional board meeting will take place on Monday, October 22 at 7 pm at the Steinhagen’s home, 304 Pheasant Hill in the upstairs assembly room. This is when the new board officially transitions into their role and where outgoing members pass the proverbial batton. Many thanks to outgoing board members Casey Burley, David Fuller, & Michelle Steinhagen for their time and attention volunteering to make QCHOA the best it can be!
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
Beginning Monday, February 5, the front entrance into the subdivision will be under construction to replace up to 120 feet of continuous road. These repairs will cover one side of the road at a time (henceforth referred to as North and South sides). The Southside will be repaired first with Northside repairs planned to begin on Monday, February 19. Please be advised the entrance and exit to the subdivision will be combined into one lane during the construction.
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
