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
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.

To read the new policy, select from the main menu above “HOA Business”; submenus “Records & Documents”; “Policies.”
Last night at approximately 10 pm 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
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.
Last week, preventative street maintenance was completed where the many cracks were routed out and filled in with a Urethane sealant, which is supposed to improve the longevity of the repairs. We thank you for your patience throughout the process and for taking caution when approaching/passing the crews! This marks the first phase of the repairs approved by the members at the annual meeting in October 2015. Funds from the Special Assessment are being used to pay for the repairs. Please reach out to any Board Member if you have questions about the repairs or assessment.
