  • The View - September 2017

    Gary and Barbara Wilkinson
    8252 Bay Tree Lane


    Tucked away in the cul de sac of Bay Tree Lane is a wonderful display of flowers, shrubs and trees. A beautiful gray paver driveway leads you to an array of colorful begonias, vincas, crotons, coleus, caladiums, pentas, ixora and daisies, all planted in pots and hanging baskets. Crepe myrtle, holly, shillings, azaleas, podocarpus, confederate jasmine all provide green year round foundation plants and a live oak and a maple tree provide shade. Thank you to the Wilkinson’s for the detailed beauty in the landscape plan

    Literary Circle - Circling the Sun

    In September the Literary Circle will be reading and discussing Circling The Sun by Paula McLain. We will meet at the home of Mary Ann Grauwiler.

    This powerful novel transports readers to the breathtaking world of Out of Africa, 1920's Kenya. The extraordinary adventures of a woman, brought to Kenya from England by pioneering parents, dreaming of a new life on an African farm. She is raised unconventionally, developing a fierce will and love of all things wild. She is flung into a string of disastrous relationships and then caught up in a passionate love triangle. But ultimately, it is her own heart she must conquer to embrace her true calling and destiny: to fly.

    The story of famed aviator, Beryl Markham, a complex woman who lived defiantly on her own terms.

    The Literary circle has been meeting the 3rd Monday of each month for 20+ years at the homes of Deercreek residents. We always welcome new people.

    If you are curious about our bookclub contact Mary Louise Selzer at mlselzer@comcast.net, or call 904-363-1618.

  • Fabulous Outdoor Spaces


    It is finally September and we’re ready to go back outside. We have asked Jason Carter, from Stonecore+ on Philips Highway to give us ideas on creating outdoor spaces for our Deercreek porches and yards. You don’t need to settle for a plain cement slab for your BBQ grill! Stonecore has all the new hardscaping ideas and the materials to produce them: pavers, stone, fire pits, water features, outdoor kitchens, patio furniture and, my personal favorite – pergolas. After the permanent fixtures go in, you can wander through their extensive Garden Center to fill in foundation plantings, flower beds and pots with healthy, beautiful plants. They can even show you how to start your own ‘farm to table’ garden!

    Doesn’t that just make ideas start bouncing around in your head? Because most of us can’t separate out the good ideas from the unworkable, there are qualified people on staff who can help us! Just look through some of their ideas on the website www.stonecore.co (there is no m at the end), and then come to our meeting ready to ask questions.

    Many of us stay after the meeting to have lunch together, talk over the ideas, make new friends or catch up with old ones. Please plan to join us! If you have questions about the Home and Garden Club you can contact Carol D’Onofrio 519-0924 or Karen Rutland 219-4135, our Membership Chairs. If you are new to the neighborhood, come and check us out. We have been committed to helping beautify Deercreek since 1993 and are having fun doing it!

  • Board Of Directors’ Meeting Highlights - July 27, 2017

    The DCCOA Board of Directors assembled at Deercreek Country Club on Thursday July 27, 2017 at 7:00PM for a regularly scheduled meeting. A quorum was established with the presence Margie Blake, John Joyce, Pete Gentry, Sadia Sindhu, and Paige Frakes.

    Representing Associa/CMC of Jacksonville and documenting the minutes was Property Manager, Laura Tharp.

    Discussion Items:

    Legal opinion received on Edgewater Development determines it must only abide by Deercreek guidelines as they relate to ARB, assessments and easement. Edgewater is not required to follow Deercreek Rules and Regulations.

    Motion adding to agenda, proposal to terminate contract with Associa/CMC.

    Motion to approve minutes from June 22nd passed unanimously.

    Three residents addressed the board:

    Paul Rothstein of Bay Tree Lane, discussed flooding concerns. This is a recurring problem, the culvert sewer drain clogs up. He asked that the drain be cleaned once every two years, or establish a permanent schedule for the cleaning.

    Property Manager updated board that the culvert has been cleaned (jetted) by Underground Pipe Tech LLC. But that particular area is a low point. A permanent solution would involve a design change. Board agrees regular cleaning is necessary.

    Resident Angie Patel asked for clarification about why JSO is needed within Deercreek. She is concerned over increased monitoring of residents.

    Resident John Robinson asked about the status of recent violation letters, clarification for two recent fines, and the need for clear guidelines for JSO patrol. Traffic enforcement versus safety patrols.

    Motion to approve Open payables passed unanimously.

    Motion to approve barcode deactivation passed unanimously.

    BOD had a conversation about renewing the Ambassador Program for new residents, to reiterate neighborhood policies and protocols. This will be discussed further at communications committee meeting.

    COMMITTEE REPORTS

    Finance Committee - John Joyce delivered finance report.

    Legal: No report.

    Access Control Committee (ACC) - Tommy Walters delivered report.
    Committee will meet to discuss guidelines and procedures for JSO patrols within the community. This is a 2-month trial period, 8 hours per month. There was discussion about putting less of an emphasis on traffic enforcement and more focus on safety patrols at various times of the day and night, as a way to deter crime.

    Architectural Review Board (ARB) - Skip Yauger delivered report.
    He indicated there are more new residents who are not complying with procedures and rules. Residents have complained about the delayed return of deposits. Committee is considering a few new policies with regard to driveways and repair work.

    Communications Committee: No report.

    Covenant Enforcement Committee (CEC) - Sadia Sindhu, Liaison
    Request for clarification on a citation involving commercial vehicles. ACC will recommend clarification.

    Motion to approve 2016 Income tax return passed unanimously.

    An ad hoc committee was created to investigate new management companies.

    3 were vetted and the committee met with representatives of each. Marsh Landing Management Company was identified as a leader having long employee retention, high quality service, larger maintenance staff, good protocols and internal systems. The management fees are higher, but given the current challenges with Associa/CMC, there is support for change.

    Ad hoc committee recommends termination of Associa/CMC contract as of Oct 1, 2017. Discussions with Marsh landing regarding fee and timing continues.

    We have a 60 day termination notice with current property management.

    Motion to approve termination of Deercreek contract with Associa/CMC Management was approved unanimously.

    Motion for Board to move forward with discussions with Marsh Landing Management Company was approved unanimously.

  • From the Access Control Committee

    School is now in full session with lots of busses and children moving around in Deercreek. Please look out for both buses and children, as well as walkers, bikers and runners.

    Unfortunately, they may not always be looking out for you.

    If you must park at a bus stop, please be courteous and avoid blocking traffic, access to fire hydrants and the ability to see stop signs.

    With Labor Day approaching, there will be parties and football season. Please be sure to enter your guests' names in DwellingLive before your parties. It will make gate access much quicker.
