We've got an election coming up, and even if you're unable to attend the membership meeting and election, you can still vote by proxy. Under the governing documents for Canyon Creek, the Board of Directors is empowered to conduct most of the Association's business including setting the budget and any assessment amounts without a vote of the Members. Therefore, in most years, the only ballot item for Members to vote on is the election of directors. Nevertheless, it is still important that you are represented at the meeting through your proxy.
The purpose of this letter is to serve as a Call for Candidates. In accordance with the governing documents for Canyon Creek HOA, the Annual Meeting of the membership is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27, 2018. Please mark your calendars for this important meeting and plan to attend.
If interested, please submit your name and address to the Canyon Creek Board (email@example.com). Please do so by 27 February, 2018 so that your name is placed on the ballot.

In 2018, the HOA is kicking off a major wildfire awareness and prevention initiative. We’ll launch this project at the January meeting of the HOA directors where we’ll hear from Linda Haynie of the Austin Fire Department’s FireWise program.
One area the HOA has asked our compliance monitor to focus on during the winter months is fences and hardscape. More notices of non-compliance with wood fence appearance and/or maintenance standards are going out and we're beginning to see an increase in replacement activity as a result. Follow these design guidelines to avoid unnecessary expenses and fines for non-compliance.
There have been instances of fires being set in the Canyon Creek HOA Greenbelt areas. The police and fire marshal have been made aware of these instances. Anyone found guilty of setting these fires may be appropriately charged by authorities. Please contact the Police (911), Travis County Fire Marshal or your Canyon Creek board to report any information on these instances. If you see something, say something.
No fires of any kind are allowed in any part of our Canyon Creek HOA greenbelt areas as it poses a certain risk to property damage and to the lives of our residents.

We are in the process of rebuilding the Canyon Creek bathhouse into a first class amenity center. Our new center will benefit all property owners and will enhance the values of our individual properties. To ensure that all of our members have full access to our pool next season, we have modified our schedule to begin construction in the fall of 2018. The new amenity center should open in the spring of 2019.
For the safety of Canyon Creek residents, to help protect the habitat of other species, and to minimize ongoing personal property damage, the Canyon Creek HOA board has voted to hire a service company to trap and remove feral hogs from the HOA owned greenbelt property.
Many folks within Canyon Creek are considering transitioning from (high water requirement) lawns to drought tolerant landscapes. Below is a quick synopsis of our guidelines for Canyon Creek homeowners. Please remember to submit an Architectural Review Form before commencing any projects.
Our community covenants state that improvements to residences shall not be started until a plan is submitted to and approved by the Architectural Review Committee. What needs ARC approval? Things that you add or change to the outside of your property. Examples include new landscaping, decks, sheds, pools, house additions, and house painting or roofing if it’s a different color or material. The only exceptions are routine maintenance - replacing your fence or deck, or driveway as long as the materials, color, and location are the same as what is currently installed in your home.
The Directors have been working with Members of the Association to construct a policy for community events sponsored by the HOA. Members of the Canyon Creek Homeowners Association are invited to review the policy and share your input during the Member comment period at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Directors.
Throw on a blue t-shirt, pack up the family and join your neighbors in experiencing a little patriotism this Memorial Day. Athletes of all levels are welcome to run/walk in honor of those who have died in service to our nation. Boy Scouts will be selling hot dogs and water after the run!
The event will begin at 9 am on Monday, May 29th, on the hill by the pool. There will be a live performance of the National Anthem, as well as a few words devoted to the day.
Street parking is a topic the HOA Directors have been hearing about from our residents. Vehicles parked on streets can impede the progress of emergency and delivery vehicles, trash and recycling collection, and affect the ability of drivers to see and react to potential hazards. And, of course, many residents are concerned about the negative impact on community aesthetics when vehicles are parked on neighborhood streets.
Thank you for all the enthusiasm for this chance to make a difference in our neighborhood environment!! Join in to help conserve water in Canyon Creek on Earth Day, this Saturday, April 22!! Every household in Canyon Creek can make a difference!!
Many people in our neighborhood have pets that they love to take on walks in our community. This is good for both the pet and for the owner. While getting fresh air outside, dogs love to defecate and urinate while on their walks. Owners should pick up after their animals to keep the surrounding areas clean and sanitary.
As we talked about in our earlier post outlining our strategic priorities this year, the Board has been looking at our current policies and rules with an eye toward addressing complaints from Members about poor compliance with provisions of our governing documents that deal with aesthetic issues (among others) in the neighborhood. As the first of a series of planned steps to address these concerns, at the March 30th meeting of the Canyon Creek Board, the Directors voted to publish a proposed update to the Association's Fine Policy for violations of the Canyon Creek Restrictions (as that term is defined in our governing documents).
(Updated 3/27/2017) In spite of what it appears, please be assured that the City of Austin Water Department is executing to a plan to repair the leaking water meter & excavation at the intersection of Crossland Dr and Boulder Ln near Trailhead Park. The construction foreman is 95% confident that the repair work will start this Thursday March 30th and take no more than a couple of days to complete.

With the annual meeting behind us and our new board seated, we wanted to take the opportunity before our first 2017 board meeting to share our strategic priorities for the neighborhood for 2017 and beyond. First, we’d like to thank all those residents who’ve e-mailed us or spoken at the meetings this past year. We’ve heard loud and clear that aesthetic issues within the neighborhood are important to you. Concerns about street parking and lawn maintenance and landscaping upkeep are ongoing so we are going to devote time to focus on those in addition to a few other important areas.
Are you great at event planning, do you love organizing activities? If so, our wonderful neighborhood needs your help and efforts! Currently, Canyon Creek HOA is looking for caring residents to help lead events that have been a Canyon Creek tradition over the years.
