Welcome to the Silver Creek Home Owners Association, Puyallup Washington
(Please Note: You are currently logged on to the only Officially Recognized Website of Silver Creek HOA Puyallup, WA. Any information regarding Silver Creek gained from any other electronic source should be verified before being considered factual)
Please be aware that, for the safety of our community and our children, the Silver Creek HOA has recently installed some new speed bumps. Plans are being made to add more of these in strategic locations - once current research results are in and the board has a chance to work through that information. Watch for them and as always, please drive safely and watch for pedestrians throughout the community!
NOTICE REGARDING PARKING RULES ENFORCEMENT: The Streets of Silver Creek have become clogged with repetitive parking violators once again. Parking/towing patrols that once helped keep our streets as clear as possible are out and working. Inevitably there will unfortunately come a time that access through our narrow streets will be necessary by emergency vehicles. If cars are blocking the streets, these first responders cannot get through to help you or your neighbors. Please do your part and keep your vehicles off of the street (park in your driveway or your garage). During these random patrols cars found parked on street will be tagged and warning letters will go out via a detailed tracking system. Parking is never allowed on the sidewalks - that offense is subject to immediate tow. Parking guidelines are posted and can be seen by navigating through the fees, rules and regulations tab above. Please help keep Silver Creek safe!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Aug. 18, 2016
Section of Gem Heights Drive East to be resurfaced Aug. 22-26
Gem Heights Drive East will be resurfaced between Silver Creek Avenue East and Meridian Avenue East from Aug. 22-26.
The road will remain open, although it will be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic. Motorists should expect 15-minute delays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The work may be postponed if it rains.
In order to extend the life of the pavement and improve the condition of the roadway, crews will remove and replace two inches of the existing pavement.
Crews previously upgraded curb ramps along this section of Gem Heights Drive East to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Puget Paving, Inc. is the contractor. The construction work will cost approximately $338,616, and is funded with County Road Funds.
This work is part of Pierce County’s pavement preservation program.

Dues Assessment Information:
Payment for the 'second half' of 2016 is delinquent as of July 31 (If you have not paid all of 2016, you are past due). Collection efforts have begun on past due accounts and will continue to get tougher throughout the rest of the year.
2016 HOA dues assessment statements were mailed to all owners of record at their address of record. Thank you for your prompt payment. If you have a special circumstance and need to make arrangements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org right away.
in July 2015 (if your account showed a balance owing); Unless you have payment arrangements with the HOA through the management company, the balance must be paid immediately. Balances left owing after July 31st 2015, continue to show as delinquent and collection actions have been and will continue to be taken. These efforts will become more severe as time passes. Legal action should be expected and has commenced on many accounts. Your Association operates at its best when all owners pay their share - it is not fair for those who do pay to support those who do not. Again, if you have a special circumstance and need special arrangements it is imperative that you contact email@example.com right away.
NOTE: IF you are contacted by the Association's collection Attorney (Law Firm of Davies Pearson) regarding your dues assessment, it is because your payments are severely past due and your account has been referred to them for the next collection steps - you will need to contact them directly as neither the management team nor the Board of Directors will be able to discuss it with you or help in any way.
There are several convenient ways to make your payment: please click on the "Fees, Rules and Regulations" page above, there you can scroll down to the "HOA dues payments" tab where you can read about these options.
Should you find yourself in need of payment arrangements other than the traditional billing cycle (half in January balance in July) please contact the management company:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ellie at 253-841-0111 ext. 117 to make suitable arrangements.
The 2016 budget can be viewed here. (Note the assessment amount remains the same as 2015)

There are speed bumps installed at each entrance and exit to the Country Hollow Neighborhood. Your Board of Directors made the decision to install these in an attempt to cut some of the high gate repair expenses. Please drive carefully when entering or exiting this area. The board also felt that this would help promote the safety of pedestrians near the gates.
NOTICE: Board Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Silver Creek Community Center. Homeowners are welcome to attend and observe these meetings.
Your Homeowner's Association is always in need of volunteers. There are many people who, working together, keep the HOA running by volunteering their time - we wish to thank them all. Some positions are vacant and some are filled by people who wish to take a little break. If you can volunteer any amount of time at all, to do anything at all, it would be greatly appreciated; please contact us via email email@example.com and let us know what your talents and time availability are... we will try to find a place for you. 'Many hands make light the work' and it takes many to run this "small city" that we call home!

Board of Directors
Recognized Official Committees
Notice: All committees are selected by the Board of Directors. As such, only Board approved and appointed committees are recognized as official and any information obtained through other sources should be verified.
(If you wish to inquire about any of these, or form a new committee of any kind, please contact the board or management via firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com to make your proposal.)
The recognized official committees are currently:
- ACC (Architectural Control Committee) : firstname.lastname@example.org
- Budget & Finance Committee : email@example.com
- Community Events committee: EVENTS@silvercreekwa.com
- Neighborhood watch patrol : firstname.lastname@example.org The Neighbohood watch patrol (new as of September 2013) is now recognized and supported by the Silver Creek HOA. Anyone (whether a resident of Silver Creek or not) acting in any 'Neighborhood Watch' or 'Crime Watch' capacity other than as trained by the Pierce County Sherrif's Department is doing so of their own volition and is not endorsed by the HOA in any way. If any homeowner or group of homeowners are interested in this committee, they should contact the committee directly. Anyone interested in starting any other form of a crime watch committee would need to contact the board of directors by email email@example.com to present a proposal. The Board could then put volunteers in touch with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department for proper training, and then may consider endorsement of the group.
