In an effort to give our residents access to a greater variety of amenities, the boards of the Canyon Creek and Twin Creeks Homeowners Associations have approved a temporary amenity swap. Under the agreement, Canyon Creek's canyonlands and greenbelt trails will be placed on temporary loan to the Twin Creeks neighborhood from May through October of this year. In return, Twin Creeks has agreed to relocate its 18 hole championship golf course and clubhouse to the site formerly occupied by the canyonlands. For the next six months, Canyon Creek residents with greenbelt lots will be able to enjoy a beautiful change of scenery with lush greenery and the manicured landscaping of golf course living without the hassle of applying for club membership or expense of initiation fees and annual dues. The clubhouse and starter booth will be situated near the back of Trailhead Park allowing easy access and ample parking. Unfortunately, due to space constraints identified during the land survey, Canyon Creek is unable to accommodate placement of the practice range or putting greens so those will remain at their current locations within the Twin Creeks neighborhood.
So that Twin Creeks residents can enjoy the full greenbelt experience, Canyon Creek will temporarily transfer stewardship of all wildlife within the canyonlands including feral hogs, coyotes, deer, raccoons, marmots, muskrats, spiders, warblers, vireos, kangaroos, lemurs and badgers. Wildlife biologists have informed us that there may be a brief transition period where the animals are confused and disoriented and may try to return to Canyon Creek until they become accustomed to their new location. Residents are asked to "shoo" any Canyon Creek wildlife back toward the Twin Creeks neighborhood by loudly clapping or banging pots and pans together. Gophers, moles and voles from the Twin Creeks golf course will, of course, be relocated to Canyon Creek in similar fashion for our residents to enjoy. Due to the expense and safety hazards involved, fire ants will remain in place.
