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.”
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.
Since Summer is prime time for boat, trailer, and RV use, homeowners are encouraged to remember that our Covenants and Restrictions allow for only 2 (two) consecutive days of storage on a lot (Article 8.5). Please recognize this requirement and consider the effect of trailer storage on your neighbors.
Homeowners are responsible to make sure that pets are secure on their lot and not roaming the neighborhood! The Board has received notifications regarding three dogs loose in the neighborhood. It’s hot outside! For the safety of our fellow residents and the pets themselves, please fence pets in and provide plenty of water for and shade for them.
Since last October when the special assessment was passed for street improvement the HOA has received full or partial payments from all but two homeowners. These payments have given the HOA special assessment fund enough dollars to proceed in procuring additional comparison bids on the work before we proceed to make sure we are getting maximum value for the residents of Quail Creek. The Board (officers and ARC members) felt this was prudent since the last bid we received on the work was almost 1 year ago and most bids are only valid for a period of 60 days from
Citizens may have noticed survey flags and survey markings along SH 205 / Goliad Street north of the Downtown Square. The Texas Department of Transportation is currently studying alternatives for the future SH 205 route through Rockwall. The City of Rockwall has expressed its desire for the future route of SH 205 to be relocated to John King Blvd. The Rockwall City Council has communicated its concerns to TXDOT and to State Senator Bob Hall, who has also expressed his support for John King Blvd being the preferred route in a letter to TXDOT officials. The TXDOT planning team continues
Homeowners voted overwhelmingly (93%) in favor of a Special Assessment to finish the major repairs to the streets at the front entrance and make preventative maintenance to the streets throughout the neighborhood. The $825 Special Assessment is in addition to the Regular Annual Assessment, which the Board voted Tuesday to keep at the current rate of $319 (the Board may, without a vote of the homeowners, raise the annual regular assessment 10%). Quail Creek Neighborhood’s annual assessment is among the lowest in Rockwall County, which makes it necessary to propose special assements from time to time, especially when it comes to street
At Tuesday’s Annual Meeting, homeowners overwhelmingly approved authorizing the Board to post a “No Soliciting” sign at the front entrance to Quail Creek. This will not inhibit school kids and the fire department from going door to door to raise funds for their worthy causes, however, but is intended to dissuade door-to-door solicitors from outside companies and organizations. Homeowners should understand that a sign is legally unenforceable as there are no laws regulating door to door solicitation, which means that even with a posted sign it is not a criminal offense for people to solicit door to door. This means that the Sheriff
