Architectural Improvements

All Residents,

Are you considering an architectural improvement to the exterior of your home such as a pool, fence, deck, patio, patio cover, room addition or any similar project?  If you are, do not forget to submit an Architectural Improvement request to the Trustees prior to applying for your building permit.  You must have both approved prior to starting construction.  Do not put yourself in the position of constructing an unauthorized improvement and risk being required to demolish it (which has unfortunately happened).  The form can be found on this web site under the resources tab.  E-mail your Trustees if you have any questions.

Deer Creek Drive Update

The County has notified us that their first major concrete pour is scheduled for Friday, October 2nd pending favorable weather.  This will be the first of three major pours that will occur over the next few weeks.  They will be starting at the end of Elaine Dr. on the south end of the project and placing the North Bound lane of pavement up to the south end of the bridge (or as far as they can get).  They will then allow the concrete to cure for approx. 6 day and then continue with another pour.  This process will be complete one more time for a total of three pours.  This should complete the pavement for the North Bound and South Bound lanes of traffic, south of the bridge.  The work and schedule will be weather dependent.


Construction traffic (concrete trucks) will be evident during these pavement pours as they will access the site from the south end through Walden Pond.  It should not be as heavy as what previously occurred during the early stages of the project when dump trucks were being utilized to bring fill to the site.


Saw cutting joints in pavement is a time sensitive activity that has to occur within several hours after the pavement is placed (all dependent upon how fast or slow the concrete cures) therefore it is anticipated that some of this work will occur late in the evening and likely outside of the City’s allowable construction working hours (7 AM to 7 PM for Oct. 1 – May 31) per Ord. 500.420.

Recent Crime Reports


We seem to have experienced a crime spree recently in the Manors at Deer Creek. I subscribe to a website that reports police reports for the O’Fallon Police (public notices so nothing I am going to share here is confidential). Here are the specific events that have occurred:

1. 6/24 on the 1300 block of Soft Crossing DUI…
2. 6/27 on Shady Timber Dr. Drugs (2 events on the same day)
3. 6/27 in the 1000 block of Shady Timber Forced Entry (Burglary)

I know on at least one of this events the O’Fallon police responded as a result of a tip from a resident. I think everyone would agree, we do not need or want this type of activity in our neighborhood, so if you see something, do not hesitate to call the police, they have been very responsive.
