Community Clean Up and Re-Mulch Day

On Saturday, May 5, 2018, plans have been made to have a community clean up day. At that time, plans are to re-mulch the play-scape area and the tree lines along both Slate Creek and Creek Vista. The plant beds in the pool area, around the pool building, and the open space area on Golden Arrow will also receive mulch this day. Needless to say, the help of the community will be very much appreciated.

In an effort to be fiscally responsible to the community, the Board determined significant savings could be realized if mulch was purchased in bulk and the community assisted in providing labor to distribute the mulch throughout the Creekview Community. The Board of Directors found this to be the case last season when, with the help of several residents, 32 yards of kid friendly mulch was added to the play-scape basin. For perspective, by buying the mulch in bulk last year, and benefiting from resident support for labor, the Community saw a savings of over $3000 relative to this task.

We are asking the Creekview Community to become involved on Saturday, May 5th to assist with this even bigger clean-up and replenishment activity. Bring your shovels, rakes, work gloves, and wheel barrows. We shall have a couple of trailers to move the mulch from the pool parking area where it will be delivered to the respective sites throughout the HOA. Plans are to have a Bobcat also on site to get these trailers filled each time, and to move the kiddie mulch to the play-scape basin where those with shovels and rakes can level it evenly.

At many sites, especially along our tree belts, re-mulching has not been done in over two (2) years, and these areas are now exposed soil which has been running off to the contiguous sidewalks when the irrigation system is active. Not only will the re-mulching improve overall appearance, but it will protect against erosion of soil now being experienced.

So, please take a few hours to help on Saturday, May 5, 2018 “spruce” up Creekview. Your participation will get this job done “lickety split”. Bring the family! This is, after all, a Community activity. We are all “stockholders” in Creekview HOA. Your investment of time and “elbow grease” will surely make a difference in the completion of this effort.

Plans are to serve coffee and doughnuts to get those landscaping juices flowing. Depending on how long this effort takes, consideration is being given to provide a lunch of pizza and soda or juice for all those hang in there until the end. Remember, bring your shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, and work gloves! In advance, the Board of Directors so greatly appreciate the anticipated support of this endeavor.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Board either through this website, thecreekview.com, or on Facebook at the Creekview Community page. Creekview Nextdoor is not one of our sponsored community information vehicles, so please use either of the two referenced information vehicles above to reach out with any questions or comments. Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
