Walkers Glen RE: Deck Update, August Start Date
Posted on Jun 19th, 2017
Walkers Glen,
We delayed our deck replacements this year in order to get the decking behind the Monarch Clubhouse replaced in time for our pool season.  Without the clubhouse decking in place, we would have risked failing our fire inspection.   In doing so it, unfortunately, has caused a delay in completing the Walkers Glen remaining decks due to the hot temperatures.  
 
Here is the email sent by from the deck contractor:
 
Kuester, 
With the weather being so hot now I have decided to wait for several more weeks to avoid so many call backs.   The newly installed pressure treated pine and the stain does not react well to the weather in the 90s. The new wood comes wet from the lumber yard and needs to dry out slowly instead of baking in the hot sun as it dries.   We have had to go back and replace several boards that are warping and twisting because it is so hot.  During the last 3 years of doing these decks, we have noticed the one's we replaced in the cooler weather had no issues at all.  
If homeowners are asking you can tell them we plan to start in August and be completely finished by the middle of September and we will avoid the hot days that may damage the wood.
As usual, we will put flyers on the doors a week ahead of time so the homeowners know they are next.

TOA: Mowing Update/ Landscaping
Posted on May 25th, 2017
TOA:  Mowing Update/ Landscaping
 
Pine Valley did try today to mow the front lawns in Walkers Glen today.  The smaller mowers were leaving mud tracks and unfortunately, it's just not possible to mow today or tomorrow.  The ground is just too wet.  Pine Valley will begin mowing next week in Walkers Glen. 
 
Pine Valley also noticed some turf damage by the deck construction crews, due to the amount of rain we've had.  Kuester is already aware of this and measures will be taken to correct the damage. 
 
On a more positive note, plant replacements in the Walkers Glenn should be completed today by Pine Valley’s landscaping team.

Message from the Board President on Landscaping
Posted on May 3rd, 2017
At this point, Kuester, the Board of Directors, and Pine Valley are distinctly aware of the dissatisfaction with the appearance of the common areas. Further inundation of Kuester is not necessary.  Bill Sandford and I, along with our property manager, had an extensive follow up discussion with Pine Valley this week with respect to the numerous complaints and expectations moving forward.
 
Pine Valley operates on a seven-day schedule. Common areas and amenities areas are scheduled for Mondays, the TOA section is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. Last week, due to the extensive rain, they chose not to mow in order to prevent rutting. Their good intention resulted in the overgrowth of the neighborhood.  They understand how the community feels about that choice as well as specific complaints received.
 
I believe they understand the depth of frustration of the community and will work to make appropriate amends and improve their service. Given the extensive rainfall and height of the grass, I believe next week’s service will be indicative of what to expect moving forward. If future behavior does not lead to improved results, the board will review the contract. I assure you we will closely monitor this behavior.
 
Please note the scheduled weed control service from last week is expected to begin this week. Results should be noticeable within a few days of application. The application is fairly aggressive and the grass may brown slightly at the tips. This will be temporary.
 
Lastly, as a homeowner myself, I am frustrated from time to time when something does not occur to my expectation. People make mistakes and companies perform poorly. When this happens, I would hope we can engage in constructive dialogue and offer helpful feedback. We have had a number of instances of individuals making comments that seemed more intent on demeaning and degrading than finding a resolution.  
 
If you still have concerns over the next few weeks, then I encourage you to attend the May board meeting, 5/22 for the HOA and 5/25 for the TOA. 
 
Landscaping Updates
Posted on May 1st, 2017
Several homeowners have contacted Kuester to express concerns about landscaping in the TOA and common areas. We have met with Pine Valley today and would like to share a few brief updates:
  • Common areas are being mowed today and finished up tomorrow morning. TOA mowing will begin upon completion of common areas. We were very firm when telling them that the condition was unacceptable and should never happen again.
  • Weed control and fertilizer will be sprayed Thursday. Weeds should die back in 2-3 days. We expect to have visible results by the end of next week
  • We reviewed the service map with the Account Manager at Pine Valley due to reports of smaller sections of common areas being missed. A drive through inspection will be performed tomorrow to verify no common areas were missed. 
We will continue to monitor the progress with Pine Valley and address issues as needed.
 
TOA Residents: Grass Cutting Postponed Till Saturday
Posted on Apr 20th, 2017
Due to the rain, we will be servicing the townhomes this Saturday, there were a lot of areas with standing water this should give ample time for these areas to dry up and prevent damage to the turf.

Monarch Club Decking
Posted on Feb 27th, 2017
***UPDATE*** This project is complete.
Your HOA board recognized safety concerns about the decking in the back of our clubhouse last year.  Mr. Esposito and Mr. Stearns (HOA Board members) negotiated a solid contract and all board members approved.  We risked not being allowed to open our pool without replacing the deck.  If you have questions, please attend this month's board meeting.
 
 
Walkers Glen Deck Replacements Starting Soon!
Posted on Feb 8th, 2017
***Update*** Feb 27, 2017
This project has been pushed out due to the priority deck replacement behind our Monarch Club.  Once we get a firm start date, you will be notified  
 
The final round of deck replacements in the Walkers Glen townhomes will begin at the end of February. The vendor will start with 9768 Walkers Glen and work counterclockwise until they finish at 9586 Walkers Glen. MCA Construction will be issuing notices one week prior to the work beginning at each individual unit so that the resident can prepare accordingly. The goal is to complete all decks by June 1. 
 
Tips to Protect Your Home from Winter Weather
Posted on Jan 10th, 2017
It appears that Old Man Winter has finally decided to visit the South.  There’s no denying that cold weather can be hard to deal with—but remember it can affect your home, too. The team at Kuester has compiled this list of handy homeowner tips to help you bear the winter months successfully.  Consider the following when dealing with freezing temperatures and keeping your home warm:
 
  • Make sure to disconnect and drain garden hoses.
  • Cover all outside faucets with insulating foam covers (these can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowe’s and are very inexpensive).
  • Turn off water to outside faucets, if possible, and open valves on faucets to allow them to drain.
  • Turn off sprinkler systems and blow compressed air through the lines to drain them.
  • Close or cover foundation vents under the house as well as windows to the basement (if applicable).
  • Insulate any exposed pipes under the house with foam pipe insulation.
  • In case of frozen pipes, make sure you know where the water main cut-off valve is, and have a cut-off key handy.
  • Keep a hair dryer, heat lamp, electric heat tape, or portable space heater handy to deal with frozen pipes.
  • Keep water dripping through faucets at night when temperatures dip below freezing.
  • Have your furnace inspected; inspect the heat exchanger for cracks, install a clean air filter, and check the thermostat.
  • Clean fireplaces and chimneys.
  • Keep drapes and blinds closed, except when windows are in direct sunlight.
  • Caulk any cracks or holes on the outside of your house.
  • Repair or replace weather stripping and thresholds around doors and windows.
  • Run paddle ceiling fans on low in reverse (clockwise when looking up) to circulate warm air.
  • If you heat with propane or fuel oil, make sure the tank is full.
  • If you heat with wood or coal, have plenty on hand.
And what about protecting the outside of your home and other property?  We have you covered there, too!
  • Make sure gutters and downspouts are clean to prevent ice dams from forming.
  • Spray an ice repellent solution on steps and sidewalks prior to the arrival of freezing weather.
  • Check antifreeze levels in cars.
  • Add freeze resistant windshield wiper fluid, and spray to circulate it within lines.
  • Check air pressure in tires.
  • Bring in container plants, add mulch around plants, and cover plants prone to freeze damage.
  • Drain birdbaths and fountains.
  • If you suspect damage to your roof after a storm, stay off your roof until ice has melted or call a professional for an inspection (the best method).
We hope you find value in these tips.  Of course, if you experience an emergency related to weather, make sure to keep a list of helpful contractors on hand as well as the number to a 24/7 repair service.  If Kuester Management can be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us.

New Landscaper for the TOA: Pine Valley
Posted on Oct 17th, 2016
Pine Valley Landscaper
Pine Valley will be taking over as the landscaper in the TOA starting Nov 1.  Coleman Burnett, Inc. (CBI), is our current landscaper.
 
Kuester Management is having trouble with CBI returning phone calls and emails, so we're experiencing some problems with service.  Most noticeable is the overflowing dog stations. seen over the weekend. Kuester has been notified of the problem as of 10/17/16 this morning.  We are also pressing CBI to meet their contract obligations to the end of this month.  
 
The HOA board is reviewing landscaper bids for the common areas of Moss Creek Village and should have a decision by this month's board meeting.

TOA Self-help Projects
Posted on Sep 23rd, 2016
By now, all TOA residents should have received a letter from Kuester Management about our self-help initiative.  We are offering this to help the TOA homeowner improve the looks of their front property, as well as help save money.  CBI is very expensive in anything they do.  
 
We are also trying to advertise the Concord Mayor's Monarch Butterfly Pledge.  We're asking you to include plants that attract the butterfly.  They are attractive plants and they are also perennials, so you only have to plant them once.  A list of recommended plants is in the letter.

Cabarrus County Schools (CCS)
Posted on Aug 22nd, 2016
Just an update on the land between the two schools overgrown by weeds this summer. Cabarrus County Schools has now taken full ownership of that land and CCS did a nice job of cleaning it up last week. Again, we'd like to thank the local residents that took it upon themselves to help and CCS for stepping up.
 
Moss Farm Street Overgrowth Between Schools
Posted on Aug 8th, 2016
                           
As some of you may have noticed, we have a neglected area of land between the two schools.  Your board members have been working this issue for well over a month.  It seems the city and the county did not include that small piece of land in their budgets.  The new Greenway is what caused the confusion.  But Mr. Lowder, who oversees all of facilities maintenance and construction, is taking care of the issue.   
 
We do want to reach out to two groups of Moss Creek Village residents that took it upon themselves to mow and edge that property since it was such an eyesore.  We thought the county had cut it a few months ago, but from what we've learned this past Saturday it was local residents. We don't know who you are, but a big thanks to you! 
 
We'd also like to do a "shout out" to Mr. Tim Castilaw and two brothers Ryan & Conner Whalen for braving the hot weather and making that stretch of land presentable.  Thank you!
 
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: mosscreek@kuester.com (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.
 
Happy July 4th!
Posted on Jul 5th, 2016
The Social Committee did a great job this year with our annual 4th of July parade and ice cream event! We had all sorts of bikes with the red, white and blue theme along with our local fire department and Ruckus House van.  Thanks go out to all that participated!  
 
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 mosscreek@kuester.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!
 
House Fire in Wellington Chase RE: Donation Link
Posted on May 25th, 2016
 
Kimberly Koop setup a link to help raise money for an amazing family who just lost their home in a fire.  This family lives in Wellington Chase and has 3 boys.  The children are in 1st, 5th, and middle school.  This morning their house was set on fire by an 11 year old for some unknown reason.  The house is unsalvageable.  So this family has lost almost everything.

Above and beyond this terrible event the mother just got out of the hospital.  She spent over a month recovering from surgery.  She almost died from a brain aneurysm. The children actually had to say goodbye to their mother because the doctors thought that she wouldn't survive.

Please donate funds so that they can purchase some items to get them by during this devastating time.  Please also keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

If you have any items that you can donate please let Kimberly know.

Fitness Center News
Posted on Oct 13th, 2015
Cardio Equipment Lease is up for renewal
The treadmills, ellipticals and bike are on a lease and maintenance program. The term is up and the Board has decided to trade the cardio equipment for updated replacements.  Due to the new digital only cable platform TWC has moved to, each television will be required to have its own converter box and remote control (as you may have noticed in the last couple of months). That process does not work well for fitness centers with multiple pieces of equipment having tvs.
Therefore, the new equipment will not have televisions built into the machines. Several televisions will be installed on the wall within comfortable viewing distance of the cardio machines. The machines will have fm transmitters that will allow you to listen to the tv of your choice by plugging your earphones into the cardio machine console.
We hope to have the new equipment in within a couple of months- it all depends on the speed of the process to finalize the lease and order, receive and install the machines.
We appreciate those fitness members that care for the facility and remind you to please report to management any misuse you may see.
Your patience in the equipment transition is greatly appreciated!

National Night Out 2015 -Tues Aug 4th
Posted on Jul 22nd, 2015
In addition to increasing awareness of crime, NNO strengthens neighborhood bonds and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are taking a stand against crime! Bonded neighborhoods deter crime by sending the message that you are close to your neighbors and everyone is aware of what is happening in your neighborhood, and is watching out for each other. In observance of National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, the Concord Police Department asks that at minimum you leave your porch light on from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. The porch light is a symbol of alertness and awareness; it also makes your neighbors and friends feel welcome.

See the FAQ page for those recommendations submitted so far.

Irrigation Season 2015
Posted on Apr 1st, 2015

Irrigation season begins on April 14th. Remember- irrigation systems NEED REGULAR MAINTENANCE like cleaning out the valves and filter. It is each single-family Homeowner’s responsibility to make sure his/her personal system is in compliance with Community standards. This means making sure your system is running by the timer and not manually (make sure the electric valves in the valve box in your yard are shut off so that the timer in your garage runs your system when set properly), making sure your heads are not broken and wasting water, that you are only running one zone at a time during the hour of scheduled watering and that you are utilizing only 10 gallons of water per minute (600 gallons in the hour of watering time allotted).  This is also a smart time to change or check your battery in your timer. Even though the clock is plugged in, any power loss or surge will cause you to lose all your programming if you do not have a working battery in for back-up. Irrigation inspections will be performed regularly to alert homeowners that are out of compliance.  ***Throughout the season, if you are experiencing difficulties with your irrigation system and plan to schedule an appointment to have an outside irrigation contractor of your choice evaluate your system (or perform maintenance yourself), you will need to complete the Irrigation Activation Form in order to get access to irrigation water outside your regular watering schedule. This form will serve as notification to the HOA’s irrigation manager to pressurize your irrigation zone during your scheduled appointment with your contractor (or yourself). The form can be found on the community website under the Irrigation tab. You do not need to hire the same contractor the HOA uses. Any skilled irrigation contractor can work on your irrigation system on your property. The only difference with this community, is that your availability to irrigate your yard is on an HOA specified schedule- otherwise your system works the same way as if you owned a home where you used your own city water to irrigate. Activations will only be accepted after the season has begun (after 4/15). For additional reference, the General Irrigation Information page (on the website too) will provide further details to you and you contractor.
***On that note, we would like to announce that Coleman Burnett Inc. (CBI-our landscape contractor) now also has the contract to service and maintain the Moss Creek irrigation system (the common elements of the system). We feel confident that they will be able to provide the HOA a high level of service and attention. They are on a 25 hour a week schedule with the HOA. **As a reminder, the HOA’s responsibility to maintain irrigation stops at the ball valve at the curb of each single-family home (where your personal system taps the submain line).  CBI will not cross into your yard to maintain any part of your personal irrigation system. They will also be making upgrades to the phase 1 irrigation control system that are long due. While any new irrigation contractor may have some learning curve in the intricacies of our utopian-ly designed irrigation system, we look forward to CBI’s dedication and organization to bring us a great irrigation season!

Winter Pool- Lap Swim and Spring Break
Posted on Mar 25th, 2015
Lap Swim
We are pleased to announce the anticipated lap swim hours for the winter pool structure. 
The pool is now open Tuesdays and Thursdays 12noon-1:30pm for LAP SWIMMING ONLY. The time is scheduled for those residents that wish to swim laps for exercise or training- this is NOT OPEN swim time, so please do not arrive with children that are not interested and able to only lap swim. 
Spring Break
The winter pool will be open extra hours during the week of Spring Break! The opening hour is yet TBD, but there will be at least several hours during the weekdays (3/30 through 4/3) for resident open swim. Lap Swim time will still be honored Tuesdays and Thrurdsays from noon- 1:30. As soon as the time schedule is confirmed, we will announce the spring break weekday open swim hours. 
 
 
Winter Pool Facility to Open Saturday 2/28/15
Posted on Feb 25th, 2015
The day has finally arrived! the Winter Pool Facility will open to the Moss Creek Residents on Saturday February 28, 2015 at 1pm.
Initially, the hours will be Saturdays and Sundays 1pm-6pm for open swim. 
Shortly, weekday lap swimming hours will be announced. 
Hours may be subject to change at the Board's discretion and depending upon attendance.
Two Lifeguards will always be on duty during these hours. 
Entrance to the Winter Pool will be through the EAST POOL GATE - it has been outfitted with card access. This is the gate on the left side of the clubhouse closest to the tent structure. 
Each resident entering must swipe his or her ID card to enter the gate, then proceed inside the tent structure to sign in with the Lifeguard.
The restrooms are still located inside the lower level of the clubhouse. A temporary fence has been erected to restrict access to the restrooms and the tent structure and to keep anyone from unsafely accessing the other un-guarded swimming pools and deck space.  
The Winter Swimming Facility is a place that is primarily for swimming. There is not a lot of deck space inside for lounging or hanging out. There will be chairs around the perimeter and a couple of tables, but no lounge chairs. State regulations require a 10 foot clearance of decking around the pool itself. 
Please read the Winter Pool Rules Addendum before visiting the facility. 
The Winter Swim Facility will be open through the end of April. In the beginning of May, the pool will be closed in preparation for the regular season which begins on May 16th. Winter Pool Rules Addendum
 
 
 
 
Winter Pool Access
Posted on Jan 19th, 2015
We do not yet have a definitive answer on when the residents will be granted access to the Winter pool.
The construction is not yet complete on the structure. They are still installing the interior lighting and heating. There are inspections and permitting that remain to be done by the County/City for electrical, gas and health dept. We also still have to finalize the bathroom access process and the method we will use to close off the rest of the pool facility/deck for safety and liability. 
Once we have those things accomplished, we will announce the opening to the residents.
This is the information printed in the January newsletter and answers many of the commonly asked questions:
Coming through the front entrance of the community towards the clubhouse, you can’t miss the new structure over the 25 meter ‘adult’ pool...

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.

Reconvened Annual Meeting
Posted on Dec 11th, 2013
The annual meeting of the Moss Creek Village Owners Association Inc. was held on November 20, 2013.  The Association did not meet the quorum requirements to conduct any official business.  Therefore, the meeting will be reconvened on January 15, 2014 at 7:00 pm at the Moss Creek Clubhouse located at 9505 Moss Plantation Ave, Concord, NC 28027
The purpose of this meeting will remain to elect two Board Members to serve for staggered terms to the Association’s Board of Directors.  At this time four (4) individuals have stepped forward to serve on your HOA Board. You may visit www.mosscreekvillagenc.com and click on Board Members from the left navigation bar to view a brief statement of intent. The candidates for the Board are listed at the bottom of the page. Proxies may still be accepted to vote for these candidates through January 15, 2014; 3pm. Please select TWO (2) candidates when voting.
State Statute 47F allows for the quorum requirements to be reduced to half of the original amount, therefore, 5% of the membership equaling 62 votes either in person or by proxy is needed for any business to be conducted at this meeting.  In an effort to expedite the election, the Board will be voting via a directed proxy.
Although your input is always welcome, the sole intent of this meeting will be to make the Board of Directors official.  Votes will be cast, counted and announced.  Your attendance is welcomed at the meeting though general discussion may be brief.  A proxy is available for download under the Board Members section or click here

November Elections for Two Master Association Board Positions
Posted on Oct 23rd, 2013
The Master Board of Directors has 2 seats that are open for (re-)election. Eligible candidates are Homeowners with an interest in serving this community.
Here are some things to consider as you contemplate who might make a good Board member:
*Community association boards consist of officials elected to represent and protect the best interests of their constituents.
*Community associations are corporate entities whose board members must maintain the value of a jointly owned asset.
*Community associations are social entities—neighborhoods of people who expect the board to preserve, if not improve, their quality of community.
Ultimately, the role of the Board is to protect and increase property values. This is accomplished by operating the association, maintaining the common property, and enforcing the governing documents
.
 
Those interested in submitting for candidacy may contact Ben Rhodes at (888) 600-5044 ext 7729, ben@kuester.com. Please note that to be eligible to run for a position on the Board of Directors your assessment account must be current and you must be an owner of record of the HOA. The Board currently meets monthly in person and occasionally on special topics intermittently. 
 
The two incumbents whose seats are up for re-election (Carolann Stillie and Bryant Kearns) will also run for re-election. The terms are 3 years each.
 
Voting will take place at the November meeting in person or by proxy. The proxies will be mailed along with the 2014 budget announcement/Annual Meeting notice by November 7th. The Annual/Budget Ratification meeting will be held at 7pm on Wednesday November 20th at the Clubhouse.
 
To submit your interest in candidacy, please send your letter of intent and resume to Ben@kuester.com BY NOVEMBER 5th, 2013 for inclusion in the Annual Meeting notice and proxy paperwork.

1 tbsp. water
All-purpose flour
1 pkg. (17.3 ounces) puff pastry sheets, thawed according to package directions
1 pkg. (8 ounces) light cream cheese, softened

Fall Planting Guide
Posted on Sep 26th, 2012
from the WeekendGardener.Net
Planning
It's time to start thinking about spring flowering bulbs like Crocus, hyacinth, and tulip bulbs. For best flowering, store them in a paper bag in the crisper section of your refrigerator (away from apples) for at least six weeks before planting. As you select your flowering bulbs to plant this fall, keep in mind that larger caliber bulbs give big, showy displays, but cost more. Smaller caliber bulbs usually are less expensive, with a smaller show, but are great for brightening nooks and crannies in your yard.
Other spring flowering blubs: Daffodils, Dutch iris, Freesia, Anemone, Oxalis, Ranunculus, Watsonia, and Hyacinth to name only a few. Vegetables that like cool weather: beets, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, chives, collards, celery, onions, parsley, parsnips, peas, radish, spinach, lettuce, turnips, and Swiss chard. Annual flowers that like cool weather are: pansy, viola, snap-dragon, stock, calendula, Iceland poppies and California poppies.
Two weeks before planting, amend, rototill and fertilize beds you plan to use for or cool- season vegetables.
Planting
When planting bulbs, If you are not sure which end of the bulb is the top, plant it on its side. The stem will always grow upright. Plant peonies now, but make sure the crowns are buried only 1 1/2 to 2 inches (3 to 5 cm) below ground level. Deeper planting keeps the plants from blooming.
Pot up chives, parsley, and other herbs, and bring into the house to extend the growing season. Start taking cuttings of your annual plants to bring indoors and carry through the winter. Geranium, coleus, fuschia, and other plants do best when stem cuttings are rooted and kept in pots indoors through the winter. Be sure to place pots where they receive plenty of light.
Fall is usually cool and moist and a good time to plant trees and shrubs. Research has shown that roots will continue to grow until the soil freezes. This is true for both evergreens and deciduous plants. Fall is a great time to plant and divide perennials and shrubs for next year's garden. By planting in the fall, your plants do not endure the stressful summer heat during establishment and have time to form sufficient root systems before the onset of winter dormancy.

Moss Creek’s Chase Carey Lands Record for World’s Largest Crayon for Petey’s Promise
Posted on Aug 23rd, 2012
HARRISBURG, NC – More than a year after the idea was born, a Cabarrus County middle schooler has his name etched in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records for making the world’s largest homemade crayon.
Chase Carey, a rising sixth grader at JN Fries, and Petey’s Promise, a 501(c)3 non-profit pet food bank founded by Chase’s mother, Liz Mellott, recently received the final certificate from Guinness proving that on Oct. 29, 2011, Carey and a group of friends and family cobbled together the world’s largest homemade crayon. The crayon, Petey’s Passion, weighs in at an unbelievable 731 pounds and stands 9’ 9 ¾” inches tall.
Chase originally came up with the idea to make the world’s largest crayon for his AIG Community Service project at W.R. Odell Elementary after reading about a group of students in Georgia who set the current record at 9’8”. With much help from friends, family, fellow classmates, and members of the NASCAR community, Chase and Petey’s Promise gathered, peeled and sorted more than 100,000 crayons in a six month period to melt into the crayon.

When Grease Goes Down the Drain, Sewage Backs Up
Posted on Aug 23rd, 2012
Concord needs the help of all of its residents to keep our sewer system running properly. Liquefied fat, oil, or grease (FOG) that is poured down the kitchen sink drain can cause serious impacts. FOG can cling to the insides of pipes and the sewer system. Over time, kitchen greases, fats, and oils, that are poured down the drain or garbage disposal will enter the sewer system and clog pipes as the grease solidifies.  These pipe blockages can send wastewater backwards and out of manholes onto our streets and into our waterways or lead to plumbing backups on private property.Left unattended, these foul-smelling overflows can cause public or private property damage, or environmental problems.  In extreme cases, overflows can lead to public health and safety hazards.

How to Start a Neighborhood Watch
Posted on Mar 1st, 2012
Neighborhood Watch!!
Calling all Moss Creek Residents to form a successful Neighborhood Watch program!
We can build a stronger, safer community through community watch. It is ever more important for us to be vigilant in keeping an eye on our surroundings. Being a part of Neighborhood Watch is really all about being an observant neighbor. This is something many of us already do! As a community we can do it TOGETHER and be much more effective. This program does more than just prevent crime. It has a remarkable effect on the relationships in a community, as well as affecting the residents’ awareness and involvement in the neighborhood. Our community is built on the strength of its residents!
Join together at an informational meeting 6:30pm, Wednesday March 21st at the Monarch Clubhouse. This will be a brief meeting where Sergeant Edie Moss of the Concord PD, the District’s official Neighborhood Watch liaison will speak about how to conduct the program, the responsibilities of the program participants and how we intend to map the neighborhood in groups. We also hope to recruit a Chairperson and Block Captains for the program.
We would like to encourage all residents who are interested in the Neighborhood Crime Watch Program to attend this important meeting.

Paving Update
Posted on Sep 19th, 2011
As we have learned after speaking again to the Developer, the first phase of paving was to be the most extensive part of the project- the roads that needed to be milled up and re-done altogether. The remaining paving is simply top-coating. The first part of the project was such a major expense, that they remaining paving will be done in a separate phase. As of yet, the engineer is unable to give us a date for this final paving to begin.

As we happily see the street paving being completed, we need to work with the paving company to prepare for the final top coating of Moss Plantation this Thursday and Friday. This means that we will have to shut down some irrigation for one cycle. Most of the Phase 2 irrigation system will not run Thursday or Friday this week. You may miss just one cycle of water. Tim will be onsite Saturday to turn the system back on. This will affect zones K through V.
Luckily the weather is cooperating with us and the temperatures are not expected to breach 90 degrees over the next few days. Your patience is greatly appreciated as this road work is completed!
 
 
Paving
Posted on Aug 8th, 2011
We are happy to inform you that the final paving project is slated to begin tomorrow. They will begin by milling down the 3 main roads- Moss Farm, Moss Plantation and Village Commons. Once that is complete, they will take it down to the sub-grade and then re-pave. The smaller streets in the development will be done after the main roads are completed. WEATHER PERMITTING, they expect this process will take approximately 2 weeks. They hope to have the main roads completed before school resumes.
***Many may have noticed that, after the curb repairs were done last week, vandalism occurred to the wet concrete of many of the repaired areas. The Developer and the City are taking this VERY seriously! The City's Chief Inspector and City Manager have asked the police Captain, Templeton, to have patrol pay special attention to Moss Creek during this process. ANYONE caught vandalizing or disturbing the new concrete will be ARRESTED and prosecuted. Financial reparation for any damages caused will be required of those caught. PLEASE make sure all minors are aware of the seriousness of their actions should they be caught carving their initials, etc into the wet concrete. Please call Concord PD if you witness any vandalism.
Your patience is greatly appreciated during this project! We know all residents are excited to see this project get underway
 
 
Street Paving in the Development
Posted on Aug 1st, 2011
Since the posting on the Community website in March concerning paving, there has been an update of information from the Developer and the City. The Developer has worked out their discrepancies with the City and plans to begin the paving project in the near future.  It will be an expansive project as the main roads will need to be ripped up and repaved, instead of just top-coated due to the amount of damage they have incurred.
 
Once a paving date is “set in stone” I will post it on the website and keep residents in the loop on the construction and any effects to Homeowners regarding traffic flow.
 
As a reminder, please understand that the Homeowner's Association is not responsible for street paving, pothole filling, curb or sidewalk maintenance. It is first the responsibility of the Developer. Once the Developer applies the top-coat, the City will apply a one-year warranty waiting period after which time the City of Concord will take over the maintenance responsibility from the Developer.

Pool- Fire in Pump Room
Posted on May 29th, 2011
Happy Memorial Weekend Moss Creek Residents,
 
Today there was a fire in the pump room at the pool.
The pool management company was present and acted quickly to avoid extensive damage. Our electrician came out and checked everything. He gave the all clear to start three of the pumps back up. He also helped identify what may have started the fire. It sounds like a Duke Energy issue and it could be related to the power issues in the Community today.
Unfortunately, the main pool (50 meter pool) will not be in operation the rest of this weekend. The pump requires parts that have been ordered and will be installed mid-week. (Please note that NC Law requires the pump to be operable in order for the pool to be utilized.) The 25 meter pool and the two kiddie pools will be open.
Please be patient with the pool staff this weekend as they do their best in this difficult situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Pool Opening
Posted on Apr 29th, 2011
The Pool Season is about to begin. The pool opens Saturday May 14th. The 2011 Pool Packet will be arriving in your mailbox the week of May 2. It will contain your 2 Guest Passes. Check out the pool rules here and the pool hours here.
If you already have an Amenities ID card from a previous season, you do not need to apply for a new card. If you do not yet have an Amenities ID card, there are two options for you to obtain one:
  You may stop by for a walk-in appointment with the Amenities Manager to bring your application to the clubhouse, have your picture taken and your ID issued. Walk-in times are Mondays and Thursdays 5-7:30pm and Sundays 3-6pm.
 You may submit your completed application and a jpg. digital photo of each member 12 years + via email to the Amenities Manager at holly@kuester.com. The ID card will be processed and mailed to your residence or made available for you to pick-up.
Due to the cost of producing Amenities ID cards, the Association will now charge $15 each for replacement IDs. Properly maintained, ID cards can last for many years.
In consideration of demand, this year the pool will be open an additional hour on weekdays for ADULT ONLY lap swim. The intention is to give lap swimmers the ability to train without the danger of running into free swimmers and children.

Nature Trail Update
Posted on Jul 14th, 2010
Last year, Moss Creek was approached by the City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department about our Nature Trail. The greater hope is to deed the Trail to the P&R Dept so that they may improve the trail and connect it into the Greenway system and eventually have it become a part of the North Carolina Thread Trail system. In January, many dedicated residents went door to door to get the signatures required of our Governing Documents to deed the trail to P&R. With this proof that Moss Creek was willing to deed the trail over, the Park & Rec Leaders put together the grant proposal for this year’s Greenway funds award. Many proposed Greenway projects from across the State were in the running. When the decision was handed down in June, it was announced the Moss Creek Trail project was not chosen as a winner in the first phase of the Grant Awards. The projects that were chosen in June had been in the running for the grant money 2-3 years in a row. This month, Mark Kincaid of Concord P&R is attending a conference where the remainder of the funds for 2010 Greenway Projects will be awarded to vie for the Moss Creek project. If the proposal for the Moss Creek Trail is unsuccessful at this conference, Parks & Rec will gear up to submit our trail for next year’s grant in February.
 
We have all seen the improvements happening to the section of the trail between the elementary and middle school and along Harris Rd. This section of the trail does not belong to Moss Creek but to the County. Our trail property line runs at the far side of the irrigation retention pond off Marquette Street. Luckily for us, this portion of the trail with the 2 damaged bridges belongs to Cabarrus County, so the liability is theirs. The County received a special grant to restore the wetlands area by the schools.

Be Aware of Census Scam
Posted on Mar 18th, 2010
While it is very important to take part in the Census so that appropriate State and Federal monies are divvied to our communities appropriately, be aware that there are individuals and groups who take advantage of  this opportunity to obtain personal information from unsuspecting Homeowners.
Watch out for people coming by the house posing as Census workers. They will ask for the census form and then ask to see your driver's license and credit card to verify your "identity". They often also ask for your social security number and your bank information.
They will show you a police looking badge, and threaten you with arrest if you don't provide the info. Some may be wearing a uniform.
If this happens close the door and call the police.

Getting Moss Creek into the Loop!
Posted on Nov 13th, 2009
As we reviewed in last month’s newsletter, over the last year, Moss Creek has been in discussion with Concord’s Parks and Recreation Department about our nature trail system and the possibility of conveying it to the city as part of the larger Greenway system. The Concord P&R is ready to submit for the grant money needed as part of the process of obtaining new additions to the Greenway system and upgrading the trail. The Association is very interested in turning the walking trail over to the city to not only limit the Associations liability, but to greatly improve the amenity

Each year MAC has given the HOA money in exchange for the use of our pool to train their elite swimmers in the morning before the pool opens and for some lane space on certain afternoons. This year the BOD asked MAC to offer the Residents a tangible replacement for the money we receive.
