Pool Opens May 18th – CONTEST!!

FUN NEW WRISTBAND PROGRAM FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR SWIMMERS! This year Kitts Creek is kicking off our version of a fun and successful safety program used by large pools in the area by introducing a Kid Creeker pool wristband program. Kids love this new way to be involved at the pool in other communities and we hope its the same here! How parents introduce it will be part of that, so let’s make this FUN! The wristband program works by testing swimmers’ abilities and providing each a wristband once the child is able to pass simple swimming proficiency tests. These wristbands help lifeguards keep the swimmers safe by quickly identifying both those who might require a little more observation and our stronger swimmers. Swimmers under the age of 13 can either wear a wristband at all times while in the pool or be accompanied by an adult guardian over the age of 21. If a Kid Creeker is under 13: An adult guardian must be within arms reach of any swimmer without a wristband. (wristband aside, this rule has existed for the decade + the pool has been here) In order to earn a wristband, the swimmers will show that he or she can now swim the entire length of the pool unassisted without touching the ground, sides or lane lines. If they can, KUDOS! They win the right to wear the [Program name] wristband ALL SUMMER! If the wristband is lost, no worries! The swimmer can just pass the test again to obtain another wristband. The lifeguard may request that any swimmer retest if there is concern over the swimmer’s ability. The pool is a place for all neighbors of Kitts Creek to come relax, socialize and enjoy the summer season. Our top priority though is the safety of our young swimmers. [...]

Mailbox Reflectors – Addition to ARC Guidelines

Recently the HOA Board received a written request to come up with Guidelines for the addition of reflectors to our mailboxes. We looked in to this and talked with other neighborhoods. The result is this new standard that will be added to our ARC Guidelines: - Homeowners may add one of these reflectors (or highly similar) to the mailbox without requesting ARC approval:- Color must be red, size must be approximately 1 inch x 6 inches - Must be in this exact location (on Right side if facing mailbox / aka driver approach side)   No other sizes, quantities, colors or locations are included in the standard. Thank you, Kitts Creek Board of Directors

Clubhouse Renovations Complete!

Happy Friday Neighbors – We are happy to tell you that our 2nd phase of renovations for the club room and clubhouse is complete. There were a few setbacks but we are done on time and once again, we all have an upgrade that appears far nicer than the small budget we had available. The old curved, multi-tiered bar that didn’t function well for anyone, with a dead ice cream freezer in the center to boot, is no more. In its place is now a gorgeous large island that reuses the 2 cabinets we removed from the kitchen, two new beverage refrigerators, and a trash can cubby as it’s base. It is topped with a big flat counter top that adds so much usable surface for our events and rentals.   Where we used to have a nearly non-functional pass through to the kitchen, we now have restaurant style double swing doors that can be propped open for easy back and forth or closed off if that more appropriate for an event. Because the doors can swing in to or out of the kitchen, they are easy to use even with hands full. And there are windows so we can make sure we are not running in to each other as we push through the doors. Gone are the days of having to go out through the hallway every time we need to go between the kitchen and the club room. It is so much more functional! We are beginning to work on planning the next phase which will deal with the hallway carpets that are impossible to keep looking clean. More to come on that. Kitts Creek Board of Directors

Save the Date | HOA Update and Social

Hello Kitts Creek - Save the date! March 26th at 7 PM will be the first quarterly mixer for 2019. We will have adult beverages and refreshments with plenty of social time as usual and we will provide a summary of the feedback from our first Homeowner Survey. The Homeowner Survey link will arrive in your email next week - please be on the lookout for it! We will all have one week to provide feedback. House Painting - reminder that the deadline for submitting plans is March 1st if your exterior is in need of fresh paint (timeframe and whether the colors will be unchanged or need an ARC approval). Lawn remediation - those plans were due last week for the lawns/parking strips without healthy, green tall fescue right now. For the homeowners who submitted remediation plans, we will get back with you to provide feedback and work together to find the best resolution. Those that did not have started to receive violation notices. Lawn treatment signs & newspapers - We have realized that the majority of the small landscaper signs on yards around KC are spam-like advertisements and not treatment notices, mostly from True Green. We have called True Green to ask them to stop littering our yards and common areas with their ads. Please remove those ASAP. Similarly, there are a couple of newspapers who like to deliver free copies periodically. Both of these kinds of "junk mail" are our responsibility to quickly clean up off of our lots. Alleys & Parking - We have received concerns about speeding in the alleys again. We need to remind Kitts Creek residents to be considerate of neighbors and drive at safe speeds, including in our alleys where our kids play and our neighbors walk dogs etc. We met with Town officials yesterday about [...]

New Fun for Canine Creekers

Hello Creeker doggie families! Kitts Creek’s very own Natalie W. has been working hard on her Girl Scout Silver Award. Last year she met with the HOA Board to present her idea for the addition of some agility course items to enhance play, training and fun for our families and pups. She had lots of great ideas and inspirations. Over the last few months, she came back periodically to sync up and gain buy in for her plans. She was very thorough and professional. The good news is that her project was installed last week. Go visit the KC Dog Parks to check them out and introduce the new agility options to your dogs! Thanks so much Natalie!

New Clubhouse Info on Rentals and Improvement

As we keep learning from HOA and Rental use of the clubhouse, we continue to plan for improvements and ways to keep our investments nice. IMPROVMENTS Starting on Monday, February 18th, there will be limited access to the club room. We plan to have the following upgrades completed before March 1st. Door connecting kitchen and club room The existing pass through will be converted to a double swing door so that we no longer have to go around and through the hallway & back (many times) to use the kitchen This will make HOA events easier and will be more functional for Rental events We will lose counter space in the kitchen but feel the improved functionality is worth the tradeoff We will lose 2 cabinets in the kitchen Bar The multi-tiered bar is not functional for anything but serving drinks. We need a flat surface there for serving food. Also the bar was built around an ice cream freezer from the old EO “Carnival themed sales office” days. That freezer broke down last year. We purchased two under cabinet refrigerators last quarter, one with beverage shelves – these along with the 2 cabinets we remove from the kitchen will form the base for a large, flat island in the same location as the exiting bar. The surface of the island will be a beautiful and durable, heat resistant countertop with an overhang on one side. It will function as a bar and/or a serving surface. Once the island is in place, we will not need so many extra tables for HOA events or Rentals - which will be a better use of space. Hallways – the fairly new carpets are stained and frayed. We cannot clean them often enough. We are working on that next – stay tuned. CHANGES TO RENTAL POLICIES The [...]
