February 2009 Budget and Meeting Report
Thank you to all of the Rose Creek Crossing owners that attended the 2nd Rose Creek Crossing HOA meeting on February 26, 2009. The meeting was productive and informative about the future of Rose Creek Crossing. There were many constructive comments and discussions, and the finances of the HOA were reviewed in detail. Please see attached a copy of the minutes of that meeting and the financial report that was provided to all the owners at that meeting.
Among the things that were discussed at length were increasing communication between the HOA Board / Advisory Committee and the owners; and the clubhouse reservation policies. We are seeking your feedback on these items before a final decision is made.
Many of the owners that were present at the meeting desired to have more input on decisions made within the HOA. To facilitate that request, the Board of Directors and Advantage Management has previously set an email forwarding alias to facilitate communication with the community members. All emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will forward directly to all 3 board members, the 5 advisory committee, and Jason Sucher at Advantage Management. If you have suggestions, comments or concerns, send us an email and let us know. Benjamin Donner of the advisory committee has also set up a blog for the HOA where we will be posting information for owners to review and comment upon. That can be found at: www.RoseCreekCrossing.blogspot.com
Clubhouse Reservation policy revised!
After considerable discussion amongst all of the owners in attendance, it was proposed that the following changes and clarifications be made with regards to usage and reservation of the clubhouse:
• No commercial or business usage will be allowed at any time
• Clubhouse reservations will be limited to 4 reservations per month per home.
• The reservation fees will be changed as follows: Full Day Weekend reservations will be $50 per day, and Full Day Weekday reservations will be $25.00 per day
• Reservations will not be taken more than 90 days in advance
• Holidays (Christmas, New Years Day, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, etc) will be handled by a lottery drawing of all owners that desire to use the clubhouse on one of those holidays. The drawings will be held 90 days in advance of the holiday so plans can be made accordingly. If you desire to reserve the clubhouse for one of those days, please submit your request in writing to email@example.com.
This policy will not be finalized until 04/15/09, after allowing 30 days of public input. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org before 04/15/09.
Home Owners Insurance
For those of you in the town homes, please remember that the HOA insurance covers the entire building structure but none of your personal belongings, nor your appliances, light fixtures, interior doors, A/C Furnace units, or interior plumbing fixtures. The HOA insurance offers no liability protection for you if you were to start a fire in your kitchen or overflow your washing machine. So we strongly recommend that each of you obtain a home owners insurance policy to cover these items (among others) and all your personal belongings. If you have further questions about the insurance coverage, please contact the HOA insurance Agents Lamond Woods or Tiffanie Thompson at 801-225-5000.
Pet Clean up and Pet Restraints
If you are a pet owner, please clean up after your pet EVERY TIME they leave a mess in the common areas. Unfortunately this continues to be a problem at Rose Creek Crossing Condominiums. Homeowners who do not clean up after their pets will be warned once in writing and then fined $50, $100 or $150 for continuing offenses. If you are a homeowner who has seen a pet that is not being cleaned up after, please note the unit number that the pet belongs to and call Advantage Management at 866-500-7368.
Please also remember that all pets must be kept on leashes whenever they are in the common area. There is no exception to this rule and homeowners who choose to allow their pets to roam free will be fined. This is also a city law and loose animals may be impounded by local Animal Control Officials.
Additionally, not only is leaving pet waste laying about in poor taste, pet waste transmits disease. This unsanitary behavior cannot be permitted!
Please remember that monthly HOA dues payments are due on the 1st and late after the 10th of each month. You can also sign up for automatic monthly withdrawal of your dues by contacting Advantage Management at 801-235-7368 or you can pay online at www.cabanc.com. You will need the following information to make an online payment:
* Mgmt Co. ID: 7504
* Assoc. ID: RSCR
* Association Name: Rose Creek Crossing HOA
* Mgmt Company: Advantage Management
* Assoc. Account #: XXXYYY (this is the first three letters of your last name [XXX] followed by the first three letters of your first name [YYY])
Thank you for your support and desire to maintain Rose Creek Crossing as one of the premiere communities in all of Salt Lake County.
