August/September 2014 Updates:
New Management Company
As many of you may already know, Foster's Creek has retained the services of a new property management company taking effect September 1st. We are pleased to announce that our community association duties will now be handled by Sentry Management. Sentry is a full-service community management company and comes to us with numerous years of experience in the industry.
In the weeks ahead Sentry and your Board will be providing residents with more information about this change in management. While the services provided by this new management company will increase, the cost to the Association, and ultimately to homeowners, will not. Annual assessments for 2015 will remain the same and the Board is still working toward a goal of actually lowering dues in the future.
We look forward to this new partnership between Foster's Creek HOA and Sentry and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can also check out Sentry's website at www.sentrymgt.com for more information.
Community Yard Sale
Our Foster's Creek community yard sale will be held on Saturday, October 11th from 8:00AM to 2:00PM. Be on the lookout for more information on this event in the coming weeks!
Even with notices mailed to residents earlier in August with the summer newsletter, street parking continues to be an issue in our community. We understand there are instances where residents need to park vehicles in the street when entertaining or performing maintenance on their homes but we would like to ask everyone to please be mindful of where and when this takes place.
Parking along a curved street where the ability to see oncoming traffic is compromised is discouraged at all times as is parking large commercial or recreational vehicles that limit moving traffic's ability to pass safely.
The Board continues to hear residents' complaints about this issue regularly and while we have not yet had to issue violations, we will not hesitate to begin this practice. Again, we are not referring to those vehicles that are parked for very short periods of time or in a manner that does not adversely impact moving vehicle/pedestrian traffic but rather those who are habitual offenders or create potential safety hazards.
The exterior modification of homes by painting, tree removal, putting up fences, etc. without first seeking ARC approval continues to be an issue in our community. We cannot stress enough the importance of reviewing our Modifications Committee Guidelines, submitting an Architectural Review form, and waiting for approval before beginning the work on your home. The BOD has taken a zero-tolerance approach to violation of this rule and will not hesitate to take action against those homeowners who choose not to heed it. There is a Fining Committee in place made up of Foster's Creek homeowners and have already imposed rulings and fines on some of those residents in violation.
While our deeds allow 45 days for review of all ARC forms before approval almost all submitted requests are responded to in 14 days or less. There is simply no excuse for failing to adhere to this requirement and doing so results in an enormous waste of the Board's time and those residents who have volunteered to serve on our Fining Committee when there are other issues that could be focused on instead.
Copies of our Modification Guidelines and Architectural Review form can be found under the HOA Documents section of this site.
Maintaining Your Home
One of the biggest requests we get from residents when asked about issues that the Board should focus its attention on is the enforcement of our governing documents when it comes to maintaining your home's appearance. This includes, but is not limited to, keeping yards and landscaping mowed/trimmed, replacing dead sod, removing dead tree branches, pressure washing of your home's exterior as well as aluminum pool cages and screened patios/porches and cleaning/replacing mailboxes.
Each homeowner was provided a copy of our Foster's Creek deeds upon the purchase of their home and agreed to reside in a deed-restricted community so the expectation that these rules will be followed should not come as a surprise to anyone. All of our governing documents are available on this website under the HOA Documents section for your review and we are happy to answer any questions our residents have regarding our deeds.
