Dear New Neighbor:

 

Welcome to our neighborhood and congratulations on the purchase or rental of your home! On behalf of the Creekside Village Homeowners Association Board of Directors and the other homeowners of Creekside Village, we would like to welcome you to your new home and our community. Over the coming months, we look forward to meeting you whether it be walking down the streets or community activity.

 

The operation of your homeowners' association is governed by a board of volunteer directors. The Board of Directors oversees the daily functions and financial responsibilities of the Association. The Board is also responsible for maintaining members’ compliance with the established covenants and bylaws of the Association. They have specific provisions regarding what can and cannot be done on your property. Please take the time to read through the Bylaws and Covenants documents you received during the home purchase or rental process. Copies are available on the community website.

 

Our community website at www.thecreeksidevillagehoa.com is the official communication channel between the Board of Directors and the membership. Upcoming activities and events, announcements, deed restrictions and bylaws, architectural review forms, and volunteer committee information can all be found there. Please take a few minutes to visit and familiarize yourself with its resources. The website provides ready answers to most of the questions homeowners have. If you don’t find the information you need there, the Board of Directors can be contacted through the contact page. We also can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CreeksideVillageNC.

 

Management Services is our contracted property management company. They can be reached at 252-637-5600 or through the company website, www.newbernforrent.com. They should be contacted for service issues on community property, complaints regarding specific bylaw violations, and for any questions regarding your annual homeowners’ dues assessment. Please help us go green by providing them with a current email address and sign up for Appfolio at https://managementservices.appfolio.com/connect/users/sign_in.   

 

As a new homeowner, you may already have some ideas on how you’d like to improve your property. Please keep in mind, the Association has an Architectural Review Committee to help maintain the quality of our neighborhood. Its function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior landscaping, repairs and remodeling (such as painting, sheds, fences, mailboxes, replacement roofs, etc.) to ensure compliance with all Covenants and Bylaws. The purpose of this review is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes. All modifications to the exterior of your property must be submitted to the Architectural Committee for approval before any work begins. If work is started without prior approval, the homeowner risks being cited for a covenant violation and may be required to alter or remove the changes at significant additional cost.

 

Information on some of the questions many new homeowners have is included on the back of this letter to get you off to a smooth start.

 

Again, welcome to the Creekside Village community! We look forward to you falling in love with this neighborhood as much as we have. We know you’ll find our neighborhood is a great place to live and we encourage your participation in our activities and functions.

 

Sincerely,

 

Creekside Village Homeowners Association Board
