    Literary Circle - A Gentleman in Moscow

    In March the Book Club will meet at the home of Pricilla Martin at 10:00am on Monday, March 19th to discuss A Gentleman in Moscow.

     A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in an elegantly drawn era with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. In 1922 following the revolution, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotels doors.

    He lives in the hotel for 30 years and forges close friendships with the staff and inhabitants.He encounters Nina, a precocious nine-year-old girl who has an eye for adventure. Towles creates a compelling cast of characters to complement the Count, none more vital to sustaining his existence than Sofia, Nina’s daughter who is left in his care and who he raises as his daughter.

    What makes a Gentleman in Moscow a true work of historical fiction are Towles’ apt descriptions of life outside Metropol’s walls. Stalin has taken control of the country, and Russians can either join the party, get shipped to Siberia or otherwise disposed of.

  • Board of Directors’ Meeting Highlights - January 2018

    The DCCOA Board of Directors assembled at Deercreek Country Club on Thursday, January 24 at 7:00 p.m. for a regularly scheduled meeting. In attendance were Sadia Sindhu, Nick Simonic, Pete Gentry, Kristen Wiley, Christine Bell, Don Gibbens, Frank Tuenge, and Paige Frakes. Doug Scott and Deidra Phillips represented Marsh Landing Properties along with approximately 13 residents.

    Two nominations were made: John Gordon Spotswood and Skip Yauger. A secret ballot ended with a tie. The two candidates indicated they would send Board members a bio. Nominations will be held again in February.

    Paige Frakes Communications
    Nick Simonic Architectural Review Board
    Don Gibbens Access Control
    Pete Gentry Covenant Enforcement and CPAC
    Frank Tuenge Finance
    Christine Bell Legal and on a temp basis Common Property with assistance from Doug Scott


    • There is a lull in new covenant violation notices because of the transition from Associa CMC to Marsh Landing Property
    • The Board approved the committee’s recommendation for a consultant to conduct an audit of Deercreek’s financials
    • Committee discussed the document received for an Opinion of Probable Cost on replacing lights leading up to guard gate and after entering the gate in the amount of ~$51K and ~$92K
      Skip Yauger spoke with electrical experts for further breakdown of cost.
      • Option 1 is to replace light
      • Option 2 is to replace polls and lights in place.
      • Option 3 is to put landscape lighting along the tree line
      • The company was asked to come back with detailed statement about cost for all options
    • Asphalt project is the largest project currently facing Deercreek. Finance asked the consultant assisting the HOA on the project for a change in the phasing of the project. Rather than asphalt smaller sections/branches of the community, the request was to possibly asphalt the main loop first which gets the most amount of traffic and visibility in the community. There was also discussion whether a consultant was necessary or if the contractor can oversee the project.
      • A motion made by Kristen Wiley to approve the Finance committee’s recommendation to hire a consultant to start phase one of asphalt project failed
      • Sadia made the decision to have Common Property discuss the project and come up with a recommendation

The access is intended to produce bank statements for the past 4 months and once procured whatever funds are in said accounts will be transferred to DCCC accounts held in Marsh Landing’s name and the prior accounts closed.


    • Recommended that new delivery times be 7:00 am to 7:00 pm from January 1 - November 16 and 7:00 am to 8:00 pm from November 17 - December 31.
    • Christine Bell advised that residents should put Amazon drivers including Flex drivers on their list if they are expecting a package.
    • Access Control notified Amazon last year that Deercreek will not allow their Flex drivers. Christine Bell expressed concern this could and has blocked/delayed resident packages. She requested ACC research the issue further to ensure it wasn’t blocking resident packages.
    • A lengthy discussion occurred regarding enforcement of the existing gate policy which is that the guard must call the resident if a guest or contractor requests access to a home and is not on the resident’s list. Tommy Walter confirmed that the existing policy would be followed and he will relay same to the guards.

  • Expediting Your ARB Process

    Are you planning any improvements to your home? Do you know what it takes to get the job done? Do you know if you need ARB approval for the project?

    I have many neighbors asking me, “Nick do I need approval for this or approval for that”? To find out what projects need the ARB approval you can go to the Deercreek Owner’s Association website at www.deercreekcc.comOn the right hand side of the home page, click on the ARB link which will take you to the ARB home page where you will find a link on the right hand side of the page that says “Application Form/Fees”. Clicking on that link takes you to the form you will need to complete in order to secure approval for improvements/changes.

    Some items are pre-approved (see the “Pre-Approved Designs” link on the ARB home page) but do require a $25 pre-approved submittals fee.

    The ARB would like to assist you and ensure the application process goes smoothly. In addition to ensuring compliance with DCCOA association covenants and restrictions, the ARB also wants to ensure that you are getting the best possible results from your project as contractors can sometimes sell you jobs but do not understand the Deercreek HOA’s requirements. Delays in a project may occur if a homeowner doesn’t provide the ARB the necessary information/form to evaluate and approve a project—which is the last thing the ARB wants to happen!

    So how do you make sure that your project goes smoothly through the application process? The best way is to make sure that the checklist attachments are complete. These are listed at the bottom of the application.

    What things can delay your application? I am glad that you asked! The following list of items have contributed to delayed approval most recently:

    • Poor photographs of the area that is in need of improving.
    • Not including the dimensioned, to-scale drawings.
    • Not including floor plans, elevation, and sectioned drawings for additions.
    • For projects requiring roof additions, not providing drawings that clearly show how the addition will attach to the existing home.
    • Landscape plans without quantity, gallon size, and species of shrubs/trees (if applicable).
    • For tree removal-not including a gallon size and species of the replacement tree.
    • Not including a proper survey of the property.
    • Not including the checks required with the application.
    • Not including good samples or pictures of materials such as paint, pavers, etc. to be applied to the project.

    The list can go on but you get the point. The ARB would rather have all of the pertinent information for projects so that you can proceed promptly. And it also helps the ARB since we won't have to spend additional time addressing your project. Besides, my wife waits on me for dinner and you don’t want to keep Millie waiting☺

    Doesn’t “Sugar and Spice” make you envision wonderful things? Bring your sweet tooth and all your friends to our Luncheon and Fashion Show for a great afternoon of fun, fashion and prizes!

    Dillards will provide outfits both sweet and spicy to get you ready for summer in Florida. The real star of the show will be our Raffle Table. We are featuring designer handbags and customized gift baskets, along with a few other surprises.

    You can buy tickets from Club members or Patty Tomka (pbtomka@hotmail.com or 363-6086). The $35 cost provides lunch and a donation to the Home and Garden Club which goes toward beautifying Deercreek. We will have tables of 10, so when you get your group together, let Patty know and she will reserve a table for you. Invite your game group, your family, your new neighbors or your old friends. And the beautiful centerpieces will be given as door prizes! But you must be there to get one.

    The raffle tickets will be sold only at the Luncheon, so remember to bring a little extra cash. No, we’re not set up to use card readers yet! Cost: 1 for $5, 3 for $10, 7 for $20 and 20 for $50.

    We hope to see all of you there. But if you miss the Fashion Show, you are welcome to come to our next regular meeting at 10:00 am on Tuesday, April 24. We’re always happy to see new faces.

  • From the Access Control Committee

    In March the weather gets warmer and folks tend to do more walking and jogging outside. Please be vigilant in watching for those on the roads as they do not always walk facing the traffic and many of them often wear dark clothing at night.

    Safety is the Access Control Committee's main focus, and we need everyone's help with that.

    March is also Spring Break time. Please be watchful for those who might be vandalizing the golf course or be up to other mischief.

  • Rules & Regulations

    Outbuildings: No outbuilding, playhouse, doghouse, deck, platform, tennis court, swimming pool, dock or other structure separate from the residence shall be permitted without prior written approval of the ARB.
