Pool OPENS MAY 14th
Don’t wait until the last minute to try to get your pool passes! Winter is OVER! The pool season is almost here! Make sure you have your pool pass/Amenities ID before the pool opens! There is no need to renew IDs year to year so take care of your ID cards. Remember, you will not be admitted to the pool without a valid Amenities ID. You should have received the 2016 Pool Season letter by mail with the 2016 Guest Passes (Tenants, these were mailed to the owner with instructions to pass forward to you). New applicants for Amenities IDs will find on the Moss Creek website (under Amenities tab) the link to the Amenities ID application e-form (no more paper apps!). Link to 2016 pool hours schedule here.

Resident Access to Clubhouse Calendar
You can now view availability and reserve a date on the clubhouse calendar for a private party via the Moss Creek website! On the home page is a link to ‘clubhouse reservations’. There you will be able to view the calendar, find detailed instructions and information on the amenity and link to the e-reservation form.

Reminder about Political Signs 
Reference CC&Rs sec 6.17…Political signs opposing or supporting any candidate, party or issue on the ballot in an upcoming election may be posted no earlier than thirty (30) days prior to such election, provided the same are removed within seven (7) days of said election and provided no more than two (2) such signs per Dwelling Unit may be posted simultaneously.

Pay your Association dues online www.kuester.com
Don’t Forget!  April was an assessment month- your Master Association assessments were due before the end of the month.

Have you registered at the new Kuester website? You can check your ‘real-time’ balance and pay your assessments in a snap! There is a processing fee they charge for credit card payments, but E-check is free and easy. If you have multiple accounts (like townhome owners), you can link your accounts together. If you have trouble with registering, Contact mosscreek@kuester.com.

Townhome Owners
The 2016 deck renovations in the Walkers Glen section are underway. You will receive a door hanger notifying you that the contractor is approaching your building with a few days to a week’s notice.    

Gym Membership for Tenants
The Association will no longer directly charge tenants for gym membership. The owner of the property will be responsible for the additional quarterly fee if their tenant wishes to join. Therefore owners must approve Tenants’ request to join the fitness center by submitting the e-application for their tenant.

Leasing Reminder
if you want to lease your home, you MUST apply for HOA approval first!! Link to e-form.

Why Scoop the Poop?

Besides being a nuisance, uncollected dog waste is a serious problem for our association. Next time you’re tempted to leave your dog’s droppings on the lawn, please remember these facts:
  1. The Environmental Protection Agency is becoming aggressive about enforcing the Clean Water Act. Our association could be fined if dog waste goes uncollected.
  2. Uncollected dog waste may lead to a special assessment.  If fined by the EPA, the association could face a potential special assessment that would be levied against all members not just dog owners.
  3. The appearance and quality of the common areas are known to affect home sales not just whether and for how much they sell, but how quickly.
  4. The more residents complain about dog waste, the more time the manager must spend on enforcement rather than serving the association.
  5. Uncollected dog waste spreads disease and attracts rodents who feed on pet waste.
  6. Leaving your dog waste in common areas or on another owner’s property is disrespectful and is a disturbance to those neighboring the property.
  7. It is a violation of you community Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions to not pick up after your pet.
Many of our neighbors have noticed the “Welcome Home Derrick” banner on Shumacher. Derrick is a 21-year-old who recently returned from a 6-month deployment with the Air Force as an active Airman serving in logistics at Al Udeid Air Base on the outskirts of Doha, Qatar. He is residing with us as he transitions to Active Reserve based in Charlotte and returns to UNCC to complete his studies in Business Administration.  Listening to him talk about his time there gives one a real appreciation of the millions of “moving parts” it takes for the U.S. (or any other military) to coordinate the complex missions they undertake.

Thanks for serving Derrick, all of us at Moss Creek are very proud of you!
