Covenants Amendment Proposed

In an effort to update a couple important parts of The Crossing’s Covenants, an amendment to three sections has been proposed for homeowners’ approval. A change to the covenants requires approval from 80% of homeowners, so it is very important that owners sign & notarize the acknowledgement form that was mailed to each owner’s residence on file.

Below are links to relevant documents:

Signature/Acknowledgement Form

Current Complete Covenants

We will be available to answer questions about this amendment at our annual meeting on Sunday, Jan. 18 at 4 p.m. at The Crossing Clubhouse. You may email any questions to TheCrossingEdmond@gmail.com or call our answering service at 405-478-0941. Also, a notary will be available for your convenience at The Crossing Clubhouse on Jan. 27 and 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Jan. 31 from 9 to 11 a.m. Please submit your completed form by JANUARY 31. Thank you!

Annual Meeting to be held Jan. 18

Homeowners are encouraged to attend The Crossing’s annual meeting of the Homeowners Association on Sunday, Jan. 18 at 4 p.m. at the Clubhouse. We’ll review the 2014 financials and completed projects, then look forward to 2015 with a new budget and plans for the new year. Your Board of Directors for 2015 will also be introduced. Seven nominations were submitted for the seven director positions so a formal election is not necessary and the nominees will be confirmed at the Jan. 18 annual meeting. Also, we will be available to answer any questions about the proposed amendment to The Crossing’s Covenants, which was mailed to owners in early January.

Autumn Newsletter is here

Let’s Paint the Clubhouse!

Everyone is invited to join us this Saturday, Oct. 25 at 9 a.m., to paint the clubhouse exterior siding. We’ll try to do the lower level (front and back) in just a few hours, then next week the professionals will paint the higher peaks. Come out to meet your neighbors and have some fun while we get rid of the green and white clubhouse!

Reminder after small fire

On the night of Oct. 15 we had a small fire at a home in The Crossing. A resident left a candle burning in the kitchen then left the home. Thankfully, a neighbor smelled smoke and called the fire department. Fire and water damage were mostly contained to the unit’s kitchen area, but the resulting smoke caused minor damage to the surrounding units.

This is an important opportunity to remind everyone that each unit needs to have its own FULL COVERAGE INSURANCE. The HOA has no insurance on our individual homes. Each owner is responsible for insurance on their roof, interior and exterior of the home and garage. If you’re unsure if your entire townhouse is covered, contact your insurance agent. (In December 2013, each owner became responsible for their own insurance, and the HOA no longer charges an additional “hazard insurance” fee. This was the most affordable option for most homeowners.)

Also, we strongly advise that you get to know your neighbors. Have their contact information in case of emergency. Yesterday, the neighbors did not know the resident, who moved in just a few months ago, so they couldn’t advise the firefighters and didn’t know how to notify the resident about the fire. Luckily, the HOA board members have most owners’ contact information so we were able to notify the owner and resident immediately after the fire was out.

We’re very thankful the fire in this case was fairly small and no one was injured. It serves as an important reminder, however, of what we all must do. If you have any questions, please contact the HOA board at TheCrossingEdmond@gmail.com or call our answering service at 405-478-0941.

Tree trimming on Wednesday

A clean-up crew will be in the neighborhood Wednesday, Oct. 15, to trim tree limbs and remove a few dead trees. We recommend that any vehicles on the property during the workday be stored in garages. If that’s not possible, then we urge you to not park under or near any overhanging branches in case they are scheduled to be cut down. We want to avoid any damage to vehicles, and also want to make it easy for the crew to access the branches. Thank you!

August/Summer Newsletter Available!
