Potential Amendment to CC&Rs to Restrict Leasing
Posted on Sep 10th, 2014
There is a proposal to change the Moss Creek Village Master CC&Rs to restrict leasing of homes. Linked here are the proposed amendment (which will be the 2nd amendment to the CC&Rs, if passed) and the ballot for voting. If you wish to fill out the ballot: print, sign and return it to the drop box outside the front door to the clubhouse or scan it and email it to holly@kuester.com. All ballots must be received by Sept 15th. The governing documents require 2/3 (67%) vote to alter the CC&Rs. That translates to 831 ballots.
We currently have received only 152 signed ballots back from Moss Creek owners- a very far cry from the 831 needed to pass this amendment. By EOB Monday Sept 15th, if 831 ballots approving the amendment are not in hand, it will not pass and no change will be made to the current CC&Rs.
If the community truly wishes to amend the language in the CC&Rs regarding leasing, and the necessary ballots have not been collected by 9/15, the ballot collection process must start all over.

Nature Trail Opening Soon!
Posted on Aug 12th, 2014
The Concord Parks & Rec dept is nearly complete with the 1st phase of the Greenway. Phase 1 is the section from the schools to Astoria. During construction, the trail is off limits with No Trespassing signs posted at all the entries (they mean it! CPD can arrest trespassers!). The official opening ceremony of phase 1 is scheduled for September 9th at 5:30pm at the trail head by the school. They will ‘soft’ open the trial before then. We will know it’s open and ok to explore when the no trespassing signs are taken down. Phase 2 construction will begin in Sept and should be complete early 2015.

~ Irrigation Updates~

Irrigation is far and away the most frequent concern our residents voice to the management company.  Moss Creek's is an extremely complex irrigation system, and when a part of it malfunctions it is critical that Kuester is informed quickly. 
Remember, the HOA is only responsible for getting water to your curb.  Anything beyond the curb, including timers, sprinkler heads, etc. is the responsibility of the homeowner (excluding Townhome Owners).  The Irrigation Manager’s focus is on the maintenance of the common areas and making sure the system is running properly during the scheduled times and the common grounds are being watered appropriately.
Proper timer programming is crucial to the functionality of the system and it is your responsibility to make sure your timers are set correctly. The clock/timer that you have in your garage is intended to facilitate the opening of your irrigation system on your Lot to the sub main during the specified hour that the timer is set for. This time should coincide with the time that the irrigation zone you live in runs.  First, make sure your timer is set properly and it still has its programming. If you are unsure about how to program your timer, check the owner's manual or consult with an independent landscaper. Many timer instruction manuals are available online.
Then, find your valve box in your yard that houses the electric valves that man your individual zones on your Lot.  There will be one valve per zone in your yard. Make sure that these electric valves are all turned off. You may have your clock set, but with these valves turned in the ON position, the clock is being bypassed and not operating according to its purpose. To turn your system from manual setting to clock function, you must turn off the irrigation valves in the valve box in your yard. If the valves will not turn any further to the right, they may need to be unscrewed and rinsed out. Dirt and mulch can get inside the workings and cause them to stick open (thus allowing your system to come on anytime during the day the HOA pressurizes the sub mains at the street). Being that Moss Creek’s irrigation system uses ‘dirty’ water or unfiltered well water instead of city water, there is regular system maintenance that is required to keep your system working properly- cleaning your filter and valves. You should do this at least once or twice a season. In addition, you must make sure that your system only operates one zone in your yard at a time during the hour of scheduled irrigation. The main system is designed to provide a total of 600 gallons of water to each lawn, spread over a one-hour time frame For example, if your irrigation system has 4 zones, you will need to set your clock to run each separately -for say 15 minutes each. A good tip is to water side yard zones for less time and rotor zones longer and not to waste too much of your hour on any drip zones.  Broken heads are also a cause of much water waste. Please make sure that all of your heads are in working order. A broken head can waste as many as 25 gallons per minute!
Over-watering your lawn is not only wasteful, but it can lead to diseased turf and growth of fungi.  The system is equipped with turf-saturation sensors or rain sensors which will prevent the irrigation from being activated if the ground is saturated to a certain point. A ½ an inch of rain or more activates the system’s rain sensors. Do not over-compensate for a missed irrigation cycle by running multiple zones at once. This abuse of the system could cause you to lose your watering privileges or pay a fine.
The irrigation main lines and sub-mains are not usually presurized during the daytime. To test or work on your system during business hours OR TO FLAG YOU IRRIGATION HEADS FOR AERATION, fill out the Irrigation Activation Request form on this website under the Irrigation tab. Note:  Irrigation inspections will be done each season. Every Homeowner must have their system running according to the Moss Creek  Please see Irrigation Resolution under the Irrigation tab. Irrigation Map and run times are also linked under the Irrigation tab on this homepage.
The irrigation season will end at the end of October- or as weather permits.
***************************
 
5/14/14- a wire shortage has caused all of Phs 2 to be shut down- Mike should be able to have it resolved Friday 4/16. 100% chance of rain predicted for Thursday.
4/14/2014- the irrigation start up has been pushed to Wed morning (4/16) earlierst (depending on how much saturation we have from impending rain tonight and Tuesday) due to unexpected failure on phs1 main controller.
8/29-9/1/2014- phase 1 pump station had a fault and shut down before completing the Friday run for all of phase 1. The technician was out yesterday and we believe the issue was addressed. Phase 1 should run tonight (9/3).
