Many Canyon Creek residents have expressed concerns over some noted traffic safety incidents in our community in recent weeks. The Canyon Creek HOA board would like to assure concerned residents that we have also noted speeding and other unsafe acts and we share those concerns.
Thank You to the 24 Canyon Creek volunteers (Tony and Logan Booth, Robert Canik, Glen "Tex" Chalemin, Shaohui Chen, John Conners, Sid Edwards, Zuojiaig Vincint Fan, Lauri and Frank Fischer, Brett Funderburg, Helen Gu, Eric Guthrie, ML & Russ Jakala, Randy Lawson, Gladys Poorte, Richard Rutner, Michele and Noel Sandlin, Sashi & Roshan Mara, Cheng Wooster) that helped with Greenbelt / Firewise cleanup this weekend. Amazing work!
The board would like to clarify our community's policy on signage. While we may have changed management companies, there have been no changes to our sign compliance regime. If a notice has been received in error, please contact the board or the management company to express your concern.
The Canyon Creek pool is temporarily closed due to an issue with the badge access system. The HOA board is working with Spectrum to correct this situation as soon as possible. We will post a notice when this issue has been resolved.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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.
