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 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 guidelines are posted and can be seen by navigating through the fees, rules and regulations tab above. Please help keep Silver Creek safe!

URGENT Dues Assessment Information:Billing statements for the second half/balance of your 2015 HOA dues assessment were mailed to all homeowners of record at their address of record in July of this year. Unless you have made payment arrangements with the management company, the balance needs to be paid immediately. (Management sent an invoice to anyone who owed a balance on their 2015 dues). Balances left owing after July 31st, now show as delinquent and collection actions have been and will continue to be taken. Please note that these efforts will get stronger as the year goes on and the Board of Directors may take any necessary steps legally afforded the association in order to ensure payment. It is not fair for some to support all. If you have a special circumstance and need special arrangements it is imperative that you contact email@example.com right away.
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 management:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ellie at 253-841-0111 ext. 117 to make suitable arrangements.

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.
It has come to the Association's attention that someone is going around offering to paint house addresses on curbs in the community. Please note that these curbs are common area property controlled by the Association. In the past the Board of Directors has allowed this action however only in the basic "black on white" color scheme. Any deviation from this these colors would require board approval. Painting that may have occurred recently in a different color scheme (without approval) will be required to be changed. If you wish to request approval for anything different, you may send an email to email@example.com for consideration. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping Silver Creek as uniform as possible and for following the proper protocol regarding HOA rules.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 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.
