Wrapped in mature
trees amid gently rolling hills, the Country Creek development is situated on 290 acres in
Oakland Township, Michigan. With almost one quarter of the subdivision devoted to green space,
ponds, and a meandering brook, its executive home sites represent the best blend of
country living with all of the amenities. The charm of community walking paths,
abundant green space and quiet streets--all conveniently located close to Rochester, Great
Lakes Crossing, Oakland University and with easy access to Interstate 75 make Country Creek a
great place to live.
Second Tree Pickup Requested We have asked Advanced Disposal to make a second trip through the sub to pickup Christmas Trees.
August 2015 News
Neighborhood Summer Picnic The first annual CCHA Summer Party was a success!
We hope you enjoyed meeting new neighbors or catching up with old friends. The weather was perfect!
If you didn't make it this year, we hope you'll put the first Saturday of August on your calendar for next summer.
We have several people to thank for helping to make our party a success. We couldn't have done it without them!
Thanks so much to the neighbors on Inverness Court for being gracious hostesses for this fun event!
A few neighbors on the court deserve a special thank you for allowing us to use their front yards and electricity for the band and inflatables...
thank you Filho Family, Williamson Family, and Ara Family! Thanks to Ruth Berklich with Keller Williams for donating a bounce house!
We also need to thank the amazing band Acoustic Madness for keeping the party rocking with their great entertainment!
We owe Chuck Dardas a huge thank you for his contribution and help in acquiring the band. Thank you to Andy Hester for donating fun toys for the kids at
the party and to the Kenny Family and Chuck Dardas for purchasing the Kona shave ice treats for all the kids. Thanks to Hungry Howie's for
discounting our pizza too. Last but not least a special thank you to the committee...Kylie Wood, Amanda Partridge and Paula Kenny!
Bylaw Consolidation The BYLAWs did not pass due to low participation. Although 97% of those who voted were in favor, the
current bylaws stipulate that 85% of the residents in good standing have to vote, and we came in about 75 votes short of what we need.
Because these changes are important, we will conduct another vote next year to see if we can get to the minimum.
Postage and Dues for next year We are in the process of negotiating a renewal for our garbage collection. Although the cost
has increased, we have not passed any of that on to the residents. As a part of managing these expenses, and setting in place the new contract, we
will likely be forced to adjust the dues. Some of that increase will be offset by adding a new discount for residents who provide their email address.
There will be more about that as we get close to the end of the fiscal year, and as we renegotiate our contracts. Your board is dedicated to
providing the best value and neighborhood appeal, but we have seen several years of vendor increases.
Pulte Completes Aquisition of Bald Mountain Golf Course The Pulte company will be breaking ground next spring on their Bald Mountain development on the 237 acres where
the golf course is presently located. As a part of the concessions granted to Orion Township, additional improvements in the safety paths along Silverbell, new ball fields
at the Jesse Decker Park, and a significantly lower density and additional retained green space all will mark this significant development. At the request of numerous
neighbors, Kern Road will not be paved, to help retain the rural feel of the area. The main subdivision traffic will be through a new Silverbell
entrance at Squirrel Road. As additional information is obtained we will post it on the site.
