Did you know that the First Annual Meeting of the Villages of Westcreek Owners' Association was held  on Tuesday, May 24, 1994, at Clarence Galm Elementary. 

The first homeowners elected to the Board of Director were as follows:
  • President - Beverly Bailey
  • Vice President - Charles Trent
  • Treasurer - Floyd Bullock
  • Secretary  - Jim Morgan
  • Vice Secretary - Duane Larkin

Ms. Beverly Bailey resigned from the Board of Directors later that year on November 15, 1994, when she sold her home and moved from the community.  In December 1994, Mr. Lou Howie was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Ms. Bailey.  


Today, only Charles Trent and Duane Larkin still own homes in our community.

Image of broken windows
The book "Fixing Broken Windows" uses the image of broken windows to explain how neighborhoods might decay into disorder and even crime if no one attends faithfully to t heir property maintenance. It uses an example of a neighborhood that contains both businesses and residential homes, but the basic principle can be applied to our neighborhood as well. 

The premise is this: if an office window is broken, then a passersby observing it will conclude that no one cares or no one is in charge. In time, a few will begin throwing rocks to break more windows. Soon all the windows will be broken, and now a passersby will think that, not only is no one in charge of the building, no one is in charge of the street on which it faces. Only the young, the criminal, or the foolhardy have any business on an unprotected avenue, and so more and more citizens will abandon the street to those they assume prowl it.

Small disorders lead to larger and larger ones, and perhaps even to crime. Soon, many buildings will have broken windows, squatters may find the buildings a good place for shelter, trash accumulates, and soon the area is a place to dump trash and abandon automobiles.

What can be learned from this simple theory? Appearance does matter!

A simple 'broken window,' or a lack of property maintenance in our case, can begin to decay an entire neighborhood and property values.
