|Concord's "What's My Day" (Trash, Recycling, Bulk Pickup)|
|Posted on Jul 29th, 2016
What's my day?
Residential bulky waste collection every other week, starting July 5, 2016.
Beginning July 5, place bulky waste out for collection on the same day as recycling.
Bulky Waste includes all items that cannot fit inside curbside carts such as furniture, tires, equipment, appliances (white goods), and e-waste (anything with a circuit board, especially TVs and computers).
Better use of tax dollars. More efficient collection, reduced fuel consumption, and improved air quality.
Your collection day will not change. Recycling and bulky waste will be collected every other week according to the established blue/green zone schedule. Weekly garbage and yard waste collection continues unchanged.

|Walkers Glen Monument RE: New Committee|
|Posted on Jul 26th, 2016
Walkers Glen community. I'd like to do a self-help project with the Walkers Glen monument. It needs some work with removing the existing plant and planting new ones along with some nice annuals and perennials. Crystal is already working on getting the missing bricks replaced. If I could get three or four Walker Glen residents to form a monument committee, we can make it happen. Let me know on Next Door, contact Crystal or you can attend our TOA meeting this coming Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. The funding would come from the association and we can do it much cheaper than CBI would cost us. Let me know.

|New Moss Creek On-site Community Manager|
|Posted on Jul 19th, 2016
New Manager Introduction
As many of you are aware by now, Crystal Beaman has taken over as On-Site Community Manager. Some of you may have already met with her in her first few weeks onsite. Crystal has been with Kuester Management Group for a little over 2 years now. She started as a Customer Support Manager, worked her way up to a Manager in Training and eventually a portfolio manager handling approximately 10 communities varying in size and type. During that time she was also named Kuester’s 2015 Manger of the Year based on feedback from coworkers and the Boards that she managed. Crystal has now taken over the day to day operations of Moss Creek HOA.
Her primary focus will be to work with your Board of Directors on the numerous projects that are currently on their list of To Dos. This includes everything from working with the regular community vendors to tracking down pricing on various projects and working through that process. She will also be responsible for implementing various procedures based on a review of current processes and Board desires. Should you need anything, please feel free to contact us via any of the methods listed below. Our CSM team is happy to help you in any way they can. If they are unable to help with any particular item, it will be escalated to Crystal for direction or she will handle it accordingly.
Please remember, your community is managed by a team at Kuester and not just the face you see onsite. By utilizing our team, it will allow you to get the service you need and Crystal to focus on the goals as directed by the Board of Directors. Please remember that Crystal’s responsibilities can take her out of the office on a regular basis to meet with vendors or deal with other issues. Because she isn’t in the office doesn’t mean she is not working. Unless you have a specific scheduled time to meet with her she may or may not be there when you stop by. Thank you for your time.
Below are the methods for communicating with Kuester and Crystal regarding anything that you may need help with. By Phone: 866-600-5044 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (by emailing here, you will be assigned a ticket tracking number that you can use to follow up on your issue. If you don’t receive an almost immediate submission acknowledgement with that number, you should follow up with us as we may not have received your email) Appointment: Please email or call to set an appointment time.

|TOA: Parking Violations / H&H Towing|
|Posted on Jun 29th, 2016
Moss Creek TOA Residents,
Starting the first week of July, towing for parking violations in Walkers Glen will be enforced. Any vehicle that is not parked in a driveway or designated parking space is subject to be towed at owner’s expense without notice. Signs will be placed throughout the community with the contact information for H&H Towing. Only the board members and onsite manager are authorized to call in a tow. If you observe a parking violation, please email email@example.com with an approximate location and vehicle description so that the car may be reported to H&H by an authorized representative.

|TOA Doggy Stations Coming Soon!|
|Posted on Jun 24th, 2016
The TOA board members have decided to give Doggy Stations a 1-year trial. If they work out, we'll continue the service. The plan is to install 3 stations in The Commons and 3 in Walkers Glen. Look for them during the first week of July. If the locations aren't the best, we'll move them. The picture attached isn't an actual picture of what we ordered, but it will give you a good idea of what to expect.
|No Parking No Standing Signs Added to Shumacher Avenue and Moss Farm Street|
|Posted on Jun 22nd, 2016
The City of Concord investigated an issue The Commons had when the middle school had big events. People parking on the corner of Moss Farm Street and Shumacher Avenue were making it very difficult to negotiate the turn. It was a safety issue and the city recognized it and was quick to respond. The city recently erected No Parking No Standing signs for the section of Shumacher Ave. from Moss Farm Street to Burrell Avenue. Some residents wanted additional signs, but posting any additional sections of street would adversely affect residential lots during “non- school” time periods. The TOA board members want to specifically thank Joe Wilson and the City of Concord for addressing this safety concern in a very timely manner. If you see people parking in that zone, please report it.
|BSA Troop 220 Paints Fire Hydrants in TOA Areas|
|Posted on Jun 6th, 2016
Thanks to BSA Troop 220, this past Saturday, we now have a fresh coat of yellow paint on eleven fire hydrants in the The Commons and Walkers Glen areas. The scouts arrived at 1 p.m. on Saturday on one of the hottest days of the year. They split up into two teams and used a wire brush to knock off the old rust and paint before painting. The City of Concord, in conjunction with our Concord Fire Chief, provided the two gallons of paint, wire brushes and paint brushes. They had their Scoutmaster out there, along with Assistant Scoutmasters and an Eagle Scout. So, plenty of adult supervision along the way. Thank you BSA Troop 220!
