Part of the Association's responsibilities is the maintenance of the stucco walls that "surround" Pine Creek. As I'm sure you can imagine, the cost of that maintenance -- repairing the stucco as it flakes off, painting it, conserving the look-and-feel -- is a big part of our annual budget. One of the issues that has been noticed more often recently is the number of people (old and young) taking a shortcut by climbing over the wall near their home. Please ask your residents and visitors not to do so and help us preserve the walls in as good a condition as we can.
Pursuant to the Association’s Governing Documents, the 2020 Operating Budget was reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors and ratified by the owners at the November 13th, 2019 meeting. The PCVA Master Assessment for 2020 will increase to $78.00 per home per month beginning on January 1, 2020.

Each year, Americans trust the U.S. Postal Service® with billions of letters and packages, and the vast majority of those arrive safely at their intended destinations. But there are always thieves who will target the mail. Postal Inspectors investigate these crimes and arrest thousands of mail and package thieves each year. Still, there are extra steps you can take to ensure your mail arrives safely at its destination.
Follow and share these tips to help protect yourself and others against mail and package theft.
Promptly pickup mail - Try not to leave letters and packages in your mailbox or at your door for any length of time.
Deposit mail close to pickup time - Deposit outgoing mail into USPS® Blue Collection Boxes before the last collection or inside your local Post Office™.
Inquire about overdue mail - If you do not receive a check, credit card, or other valuable mail you’re expecting, contact the sender as soon as possible and inquire about it.
Don't send cash - Be careful about what you send. Don’t risk sending cash in the mail.
Arrange for prompt pickup - If you cannot be home to receive a package, make another arrangement or use the USPS Hold Mail Service.
Use Hold for Pickup - When shipping packages, use the Hold for PickUp option, and the recipients can collect the package at their local Post Office™.
Request signature confirmation - When mailing something important, consider requesting Signature Confirmation™ for the intended recipient.
File a change of address - If you move, make sure you file a change of address with the Postal Service and let your financial institutions know as well.
