Deer Creek Drive Extension – Update

To All Residents:

Your Trustees have recently finalized the sale of a small portion of the Common Ground to St. Charles County to allow for the extension of Deer Creek Dr. to Walden Pond and ultimately to Bryan Road.

As soon as we have details on the estimated start date of the construction, we will forward all the information via letter (including the financial impact to the HOA) to all residents.

St. Gemma Water Line Extension

Many of you may have noticed digging and construction at the east end of Foggy Meadow Drive recently.  This is construction on the St. Gemma water line extension, unrelated to our sub-division.

Work is currently being done just to the East of our sub-division near the termination of Foggy Meadow Dr.  There is construction traffic in and out of Foggy Meadow.  The contractor has posted safety signage to observe speed limits while accessing the construction site through Foggy Meadow.  Materials are staged at the end of Foggy Meadow Dr., so drive with caution in the area.  The city advises us that the time line for completion should be around the end of the year, weather dependent.

The city did not need to acquire any easements from The Manors at Deer Creek, since this work is off of our property.

If there are any concerns, you may contact the City’s new Project Manager, Chris Horvath at City Hall

Deer Creek Dr. Extension

Residents,

The St. Charles County Highway Department has recently contacted us and advised your Trustees that the extension of Deer Creek Dr. Project has final approval and is ready to start as soon as they acquire the Common Grounds of The Manors at Deer Creek.

Your Trustees are currently in negotiations with the governmental authorities and will advise you as soon as negotiations are complete.

 

Trustee Election

Our subdivision has just reached 95% build-out and is now eligible for a second resident Trustee.  According to the terms of the Indenture, Jim Brennan will be stepping down following the election of the new Trustee. We have reserved the Multi-Purpose Room at City Hall on

 Tuesday 9/24/2013 from 6:30 PM until 9:00 PM

for the purpose of accepting nominations, conducting an election and to answer any HOA questions.  Assuming we have a quorum of 13 households represented at this meeting, we will solicit nominations and conduct an election during the same meeting.  In the absence of a quorum, we will mail ballots out to all residents following the nominations. 

 The agenda for the meeting will be as follows:

 6:30 PM until 7:00 PM              Accept nominations for the position of Trustee

 7:00 PM until 7:30 PM              Time for nominees to introduce themselves to the residents and explain why they would like to be considered for the position (i.e. campaign speech – 10 minute max for each)

 7:30 PM until 8:00 PM              Election

 8:00 PM until 9:00 PM              Questions from residents on any open HOA issues

 We hope everyone can attend this very important meeting and look forward to seeing you there.  In the event you wish to be considered for the position of Trustee and are unable to attend this meeting, you can contact Karen Kelly from City and Village at (314) 739-4800 or e-mail here at kkelly@cityandvillage.com to submit your nominations and a written campaign statement, which we will read prior to the election.
