Cross Creek HOA election results
82 Ballots were returned, two of those where returned to sender as homeowners had moved and no new address had been given to the HOA. Therefore only 80 ballots were available for counting.
All candidates received more than one vote: therefore all were elected to office of the Cross Creek Board of Directors for 2017- 2018: Charles Johnson received the highest vote count with 54 followed by Laura Rivenbark, Dee Eyink and Katie Windham tied with 49 votes and John Conners receoved 38 of the 80 votes cast. Congratulations to the new Board on your election the transition meeting will take place at the May meeting.
On the change to the covenant vote requesting to allow Chickens and defining their restriction: not enough votes were cast to change the rules. 105 votes in favor of the change were needed at the time the ballots were sent out, twelve (12) ballots were returned with payments to increase that number needed to pass the change to one hundred and Thirteen (113). Again only 80 ballots were returned. 38 in favor of change and 28 against the change. Only 66 of the 80 ballots cast voted on this covenant change, with 113 affirmative votes need for the change to take place. The amendment to the Cross Creek HOA covenants failed. No chickens, or fowl shall be permitted within the Cross Creek HOA.
We would like to thank all that participated in the vote this year and we encourage all eligible members of our association to participate in the future.

It has come to the Boards attention that a few members of our HOA have received a mailing for a private social network called Nextdoor. Please be advised that this is NOT a product that was endorsed or reviewed by your Board of Directors and we advise you to research on your own if you wish to participate. Our official communications will continue to be through the website and/or via US Mail.
If you have any question, please contact the board via the online submission form by clicking here.
Your Board of Directors would like to thank all the members of our homeowners association that took the time to vote on the proposed changes to our covenants and election of new board members. In order for any change to be made to our covenants, we are required to receive at least 66% affirmative votes by eligible homeowners. Unfortunately, of the 169 eligible homeowners, we only received 105 ballots leaving us short of the minimum requirement. As a result, there will be no changes to our covenants at this time. We are pleased that over the past three elections we have seen a considerable increase in voting from 63 to 105 homeowners and we received over $2300 in outstanding dues with the election ballots. Please understand these outstanding monies were only from the first billing of the HOA which represented the annual dues of $125 or $175 (horse lots) and not road assessment monies. Road assessment dues will be required for next voting period as they are due in March 2017.
We are also pleased to announce the following members have received votes to be elected to our Board of Directors: (in no particular order)
(We also had a few write-ins which will we be contacting to see if they are willing to participate on our board)
Even though the proposed changes cannot be made, if you are interested in the vote count, please contact the board via the online submission form under the contact us tab.
Again, we want to thank all that participated in the vote this year and we encourage all eligible members of our association to participate in the future in order to implement changes that positively influence our community.
