Ongoing Common Area Maintenance
After Hours Work on Property

We have received a few emails concerning after hours work being done on HOA property by the pond and dog waste stations. We had some work scheduled this week on one of our waste stations which includes concrete setting. Kirby Creek Village onsite staff has confirmed the digging and setting of concrete planned for this week was completed during daylight hours. There was no digging being done after hours and the hole was in fact dug and the post set in concrete around noon Friday December 27, 2019. We are working this specific waste station because we have received many complaints from owners asking it be moved.
 
That specific dog waste station has been cemented in the ground three separate times/areas over the past six months due to those complaints. We have moved it numerous times to try and find the best location for it to be placed but also used. 
 
My onsite staff did advise they were out on property last night/over night making rounds checking on the project and cleaning the surrounding area. He does like to keep a close eye on any projects that are actively in the works because we have had numerous tools stolen. He also makes several visits during the day and night since teenagers often hang out at the pond and leave litter behind.  

Due to the misuse of this specific waste station we are currently working on what can be done to provide a proper trash receptacle in the area. My staff does keep to their schedule of cleaning them out during the week, and he does go by extra times during the holidays and summer season and we are still seeing an influx of non dog waste being disposed of in this specific waste station.
 
While out and about by the pond you may see a single post with no additional items attached at this time, the rest of the station is built and is going to be installed on that post very soon The weather has obviously played a role in the delay today. At this time all stations will remain where they’re located as we work to find a resolution for trash around the pond area. 
 
We do appreciate all owners taking the time to reach out to make sure our on site staff are working to keep the area clean and beautiful. We are working on an improvement plan and installment schedule that we can publish to owners throughout the year. We still advise that if you see suspicious activity to please call the police.

Landscape Update

Our landscape vendor has been out over the past two weeks working on the common areas. The association had some irrigation repairs done so that we can better water the beds by the clubhouse. The vendor informed us that he pruned back all of the roses, mulched all the way around the clubhouse, turned and cleaned out the beds, planted sixteen flats of pansies in the beds at the sign and at the front of the clubhouse. The two beds on the side entry of the clubhouse by the pool gate were only mulched since there are roses in them for the spring and summer. Our vendor noted that the plants blend into the mulch color and once the flowers get settled they will being to bloom. He also gave them blood meal which is a very good organic material that will assist in getting huge blooms and works as a good pest repellent. Below are some images of the work in progress and final product.
