News and Updates

  • From the Access Control Committee

    Always be watchful of the strange behavior of some people in Deercreek or vehicles that appear to just be sitting with someone inside. While Deercreek is a restricted access community through the gates, our perimeter is porous to say the least. We need to watch out for each other just as in any other community. If something appears to be strange, contact the guard gate or JSO immediately.

    The holidays are upon us along with multiple parties, family gatherings and football parties. It's a great time of the year, so help the Access Control Committee make your gatherings successful by alerting the Gatehouse before your festivities. Even more effective is to place all the names of your guests in the gatehouse Dwelling Live system. Their entry process will be smoother and your guests will get to your residence must faster that way.

    Finance -John Joyce (Liaison)

    John Joyce presented his report stating the association is in good financial standing. Budget is in progress and the committee has decided to add additional G/L accounts to define the expense better. Discussion took place on holding the asphalt project till 2018, instead of 2017 due to short-age of funds for this project. Discussions regarding an increase in assessments since the last in-crement in 2014 were reviewed in view of impending budget plans for 2017.

    Because Thanksgiving is the same week as our regular meeting date, we will go on a Field Trip in November instead. Eco Relics has been on our radar for some time and we are excited about getting to go and see them firsthand. It is a fascinating 50,000 sq ft old warehouse filled with building materials, antiques, architectural salvage, both vintage and new accessories, and unique pieces built from bits and pieces.

    In 2014, Michael and Ann Murphy established Eco Relics stemming from their desire to prevent usable construction supplies from entering landfills, while preserving as many architectural relics as possible. Like the TV show “Salvage Dawgs”, they go into buildings being demolished and harvest the beautiful fixtures, doors, woodwork, sinks, and hardware. Eco Relics even takes your pavers & bricks, landscaping materials (yes, even trees and bushes), and countertops, cabinets, flooring, lighting, plumbing and any wood – as long as it isn’t termite infested! Then they sell or repurpose these things. “We offer many different options to help you get rid of your stuff! Please consider calling us before filling a dumpster or putting stuff out on the curb for pick up.” Those of you who are remodeling kitchens and bathrooms might want to give them a call!

    Their shop is even recycled from an historic railroad depot in the heart of Jacksonville. Besides the rows of doors and window, the bins of doorknobs and faucets and the piles of lumber, you will find many treasures…. Signs, Antiques, Props for parties, photo shoots or weddings, patio pavers, the perfect accent piece for your DIY project….

    Check out their website at http://ecorelics.com/ then make plans to join us for the Field Trip on the 15th We don’t need reservations but you will need to be at the Pool by 10 if you want to carpool. We will go out to lunch together after the tour.

    Literary Circle November

    The Literary Circle's November selection is "The Weekender" by Mary Kay Andrews. We will gather at the home of Sandy Montgomery at 10:00 on Monday, November 21st for our discussion and lunch.

    The Weekender is a story about people who stay all summer long on the idyllic Belle Isle, N.C. Others come only for the weekend, the mix between the regulars and the "weekenders" can sometimes make the sparks fly. Riley Griggs has a season of good times with friends and family ahead of her when things take an unexpected turn. While waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday afternoon, Riley is confronted by a process server who thrusts papers in her hand. Her husband is no where to be found.

    So she turns to her island friends for help and support, but it turns out each of them has their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens....in a murderous way. Cocktail parties aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.

    Told with Mary Kay Andres trademark blend of humor and warmth, and with characters and a setting that you can't help but fall for, "The Weekender" is a perfect escape.

    If you are interested in our book club, please contact Mary Louise Selzer at mlselzer@comcast.net or 363-1618. We meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 10:00 followed by a lunch prepared by the hostess.

    Storm water drains are part of our Homeowner Association liabilities

    As could be noted in the picture, this drain is covered with pine needles/debris. The debris gets into the drainage system, clogs the drain, often causing the drain to back up into the street when it rains. There are numerous drains around the community that look like this.

    Unfortunately when drains are impacted, the Homeowners Association pays the bill for getting them fixed; it is not the city's responsibility. It is very costly for our community to eventually clean out the entire drains from years of debris build-up (from grass clippings, leaves, bottles etc). We have over ten miles of roads and accompanying drainage system. In addition, whatever goes into the drains ends up in the lakes - this includes grass clippings that Lawn maintenance / Yard service workers blow into the lakes.

    With that in mind please help us; if there is a drain located on or near your home / property, please check that it is clear at all times. Don't let it build up like in the picture above. Please advise your Lawn maintenance / Yard service professionals not to blow grass clippings or leaves down the drains. This is your community, please take pride in ownership and help maintain the pristine look of the community.

  • Board of Directors’ Meeting Highlights - Aug 25, 2016

    The DCCOA Board of Directors assembled at Deercreek Country Club on Thursday Aug 25, 2016 at 7:00PM for a regularly scheduled meeting. A quorum was established with the presence of Margie Blake, Robert Kichler, John Joyce, Peter Gentry, Jim Giancola, Sadia Sindhu, Kristen Wiley, Nick Simonic and Paige Kelton Frakes. Representing CMC of Jacksonville was Property Manager Marilyn Clayton and Kishwa Milliner.

    Guests in Attendance: Homeowners Bob Hunt and Skip Yauger.


    A motion to levy fines for properties with violations was made, seconded and approved.


    Finance - John Joyce (Treasurer):

    The July income expense is tracking favorably to budget at $610,000 to $602,000. The only variance in negative income is in Citations and Covenant collections which is $1,100 behind budget. The currently adopted procedures and policies in place will help to correct this by year end. Year-to-date, we are at $604,000 against $603,000. Also there is $50,000 in surplus funds from previous year operations and $1,130,000 in reserves. Budget packages for 2017 will go out next week and the Capital Reserve numbers will be completed by the end of September.

    ARB Nick Simonic - (Liason):

    Nick provided the ARB update on approved and denied modifications. Nick mentioned the homeowners’ disapproval with the delay in receiving back the ARB deposit refunds. Nick made a motion that the ARB be empowered to authorize refunds of ARB deposits. Paige seconded and the motion carried unanimously.

    Covenant Enforcement - Sadia Sindhu (Liaison):

    Sadia reported that there were no appeals at the CEC meeting. Marilyn stated that prior to the next CEC meeting, they will receive a drafted correspondence for review to be sent to homeowners detailing the violation process. Lastly, Sadia brought to the Board’s attention that there are currently unauthorized persons accessing the property near Chester Lake due to the fact that there is no fencing or enclosure. Marilyn will investigate this issue with JEA and get back to Sadia with a solution.

    Common Property - Jim Giancola (Liaison):

    Jim reminded Associa on the bids for an arborist to maintain properly trimming the row of honor trees on golf course property located on Deercreek Club Road. Jim stated that for the fountains, the committee requests $12,000 from the board which includes $8,500 to Innovative Fountains and the balance as contingency funds to pay an electrician for any repairs discovered. A motion to approve the committee’s recommendation was made, seconded and approved.

    Communications - Paige Kelton Frakes:

    Request for Board Candidates for 2017 will appear in the October newsletter as well as a request for any information changes to the residents’ directory.

    Old Business:

    1. Road Project –Paving: Jim clarified that he will have his company assist by drafting a RFP. He stated that we have two bids from engineers but we will still need a third bid as well.

    2. Guardhouse Design: Skip Yauger provided answers to questions about the four guardhouse design options available. Skip suggested the formation of a committee to make a decision on the guardhouse design, then present that decision to the board. Skip also suggests that a guardhouse budget be attained prior so that a selected design can be accommodated. An ad hoc committee (Bob, Jim, Kristen and Margie) was formed along with Skip Yauger and Tommy Walters for the purpose of specifying ideas and costs for a redesigned guard house before bringing those recommendations to the Board in October.

    3. Fountain Repairs – Innovative Fountains will be hired to repair the fountains.

    The next board meeting of the Board of Directors is scheduled for September 22, 2016 at 7:00P.M. at Deercreek Country Club.

  • Campaign Signs as political participation

    With the upcoming political elections, we want to remind all residents that campaign signs (though they provide a supporter with a way to express themselves politically) are not allowed to be displayed in yards, windows or in any other format or location.

    The association's security force will remove all yard signs and Management will send notification letters asking that any window sign be immediately removed. If the sign is not removed, then a violation of the CCR's will be issued.

    Thank you in advance for your compliance with the community's rules.

  • The Board has three vacancies

    Ladies and Gentlemen Homeowners of Deercreek,

The Board has three vacancies this year and currently has two people interested in running for the Board.

    Halloween will be here SOON!

    October is a month of football parties and Halloween. For the parties, please be sure to post your guests names in the gate entry system or provide a list to the guard house before the party. For Halloween, please watch out for small children and golf carts. Many trick or treaters now travel by golf carts on Halloween. Parents are reminded that in Deercreek only people with valid driver licenses can drive motorized vehicles on the community streets; and citations will be issued for noncompliance.

     Be vigilant about keeping all vehicle windows up and doors locked at all times. The same for residence doors, windows, and especially garage doors. Do not let your home or vehicle become an inviting target. Deercreek is a restricted access community, not a secured community. The perimeter of the community is not secure, and we also have no way of knowing the background of all the visitors who enter the community. So please stay watchful.

  • Saladmaster ‘Lunch and Learn’

    10 am Tuesday, October 25, 2016

    Saladmaster introduced their first ‘Food Processor’ in 1946 to efficiently slice and shred a variety of foods, getting them ready for fresh, flavorful meals. It had a hand grinder with multiple cutting blades to zip through tough, dense vegetable or soft, delicate fruits. And it still works beautifully. As the company grew they added more products, starting with cookware made in the USA with heavy duty stainless steel, then detachable handles and semi-vacuum cooking. All of these reduce food prep and cooking time while doubling your nutritional intake.

    Lori Gibson, a Saladmaster Consultant, is coming to Deercreek to do a cooking demonstration and educational presentation. And we all get to taste samples of whatever she is making! We are all trying to eat clean and healthy and can use any help we can get. Well, Lori can help! She has recipes and ideas for quick, delicious meals!

    We’ve also invited Leslie Jewett to bring her design line of jewelry and accessories so that we can get a start on Holiday shopping. She has items from $20 to $400 and there will be something for everyone on your list! Preview her line at www.lesliejewett.com She is giving us 10% of the sales so we can get some pieces for our Silent Auction at the Fashion Show in March. Bring your fashionista friends. They will thank you!

    For more information about the Deercreek Home and Garden Club you can call Anne Klueppel at 519-5368. The new Program Schedule for 2016-2017 is out and you’ll want to put these meetings on your calendar so you won’t miss any of the fun.

    Next up is a Field Trip on Wednesday, November 15 to EcoRelics where they ‘Reuse, Recycle and Repurpose’ home, building and architectural salvage. Check out http://ecorelics.com/ to see what they do.

    Literary Circle - October 17

    In October the Literary Circle will read and discuss Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf.

    We will meet at the home of Chris Middlebrook at 10:00am on Monday, Oct 17th.

    This book was named "A Best Book of the Year" by several prominent newspapers.

    "A fine and poignant novel that demonstrates that our desire to love and to be to loved does not dissolve with age."

    Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known each other for decades: in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife.

    The View

    Jack and Lorraine Clancy
    8206 Bay Tree Lane

    How do the Clancy's keep track of all the flowering plants and shrubs? The names and numbers of the specimens are numerous, not to mention the care and maintenance involved in keeping the beds that surround the house. As the beautiful paver driveway takes one to the front of the home, sweet potato vine, pentas, trumpet plant, portulacca, purslane holly, sunflower, shasta daisies and crotons are nestled at the front. At the back and side of the house, just to name a few are milkweed, lime tree, live oak, crepe myrtle, sago, windmill palm, plumbago, iris, asparagus fern, dusty miller, Mexican petunia, confederate jasmine, perennial petunia, fall blooming camellia. If you are a golfer you will see the backyard setting off to the right of the green on Hole number 14. Thank you to the Clancy's for keeping the view on the golf course so beautiful, as well as their entrance on Bay Tree Lane.
