New Board Member to be Elected
The board of directors is pleased to announce that Ryan Enderle, a homeowner new to our sub, has expressed interest in serving on the Forest Creek Board of Directors. As announced at the annual meeting last September, Denise Ridenour stepped down as president effective Jan. 1, 2023. Homeowners will be receiving an email to officially vote on Ryan’s election to the board where he will assume the role of president. Please read Ryan’s background that follows then cast your vote (one vote per household) by February 28th to be counted.
Background on Ryan Enderle
I have lived in the metro Detroit area most of my life. My family is very thankful to have ended up in the Forest Creek community, and we’re grateful to have been so warmly received by our kind neighbors! I work as a Realtor® and I am passionate about helping others with their housing needs. I like to spend time with my family, and in my free time, I like to play music and coach my kids’ robotics and sports teams. As a United States Marine Corps veteran, I understand the importance of service to my country and local community. It would be my honor and privilege to serve on the board of the Forest Creek HOA.
Are you “in the know” with Forest Creek?
Whether you are new to our subdivision or your email address has changed, please notify the board of your current email address. Outdated emails do not exempt homeowners from annual dues.
The deadline for paying association dues is April 30th every year to avoid incurring late fees and other penalties. Dues are sent to homeowners via electronic mail (email). The email will direct homeowners to our secured online payment feature on the Forest Creek website or you may also remit your dues by check to the address noted on the invoice.
News about 2023 Dues
As discussed at our annual meeting last September, due to an increase in grounds maintenance, inflation, and unforeseen events (downed trees at the retention pond, water line breaks in our sprinkler system, and increased maintenance of the retention pond), we have exceeded our 2022 budget. Fortunately, we were able to facilitate these recent expenses to date due to the reserves the HOA is required to maintain.
However, with the anticipated continued increase in costs and the 5% cap in raising regular HOA dues, we are forced to levy a $125.00 special assessment for 2023/2024 dues period. This will allow for upcoming expenses to be paid on time and to reestablish our required reserves necessary to uphold our community to the standard expected to maintain our home values.
To provide full transparency, a copy of our budget for 2023 will be included with 2023 annual dues showing the history of the decline in budget numbers from 2018 through 2022. A discussion around future dues will be held at our annual meeting in May.
Interested in spearheading a subdivision event?
The association board sets aside funds every year for subdivision special events. If you have an idea for an event and can volunteer to organize and plan an event, please let us know! A special event could the subdivision garage sale, a holiday parade or party, or an adult get together at a nearby establishment.
