Welcome Packet

All new homeowners should receive a packet of information related to our community from their realtor.  If you do not receive this, you can contact the Board of Directors and notify them that you are new property owner.  As a property owner, you are entitled to use of the community amenities, including our community lodge and pool.  You should receive in your welcome packet from your realtor a form to request a gate remote control, a key to the back gate, and a request form for a lodge access code.  If you do not receive this from your realtor or previous owner, please contact our Board of Directors for assistance in obtaining it.


Property Owners Association (POA)

Our community, made up of 300 lots, is managed by our own members through a Property Owners Association, also known as the POA.  The POA operates on a two year term of 5 board of directors, and is staggered each year.  Each year, two or three new members terms are expired in order to maintain consistency.  The community, known as “Silver Creek Community” was incorporated in XXXXXX, and includes the Articles of Incorporation, the By-Laws, and the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions.  These are the documents which govern how our community association is run.  These documents set the organization, the rules, and the policies.  Any questions about these or recommendations for change should be proposed to the Board of Directors.  Additionally, the community maintains committees by volunteers to assist in some of the activities of maintaining our community.

Our governing documents can be obtained by clicking here.
