New Website and Email Addresses

spring-creek-ranch-responsive-screenshots

Welcome to the new website of Spring Creek Ranch. Our design is mobile responsive so please, add this to your home screen for easy reference.

"Why would I do that?" you ask. Because this site is now useful! It is designed to be the main communication platform between the community and the board. Basically, it is the place to contact the board with questions and for the board to notify the community of things. You probably didn't know this but the board has a policy of not commenting on Facebook posts, as those conversations can tend to get out of hand and are usually individual issues and not issues that are for the whole community. The board members are happy to talk to any of our community members about their concerns. However, the appropriate venue to discuss these issues is by contacting us directly through email or at a board meeting. So if you have ever wondered why the board hasn't commented on discussions that get pretty heated, now you now why. You also now know the proper way to raise those issues and we welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns about making our community a great place to live.

The website is also the place where potential residents can find more information about the neighborhood. We hope it helps make the neighborhood more attractive to potential new residents.

So please, check it out and let us know if you find it helpful, or what would be helpful to have on it.

What you'll find

  • Request approval for changes/additions to your home, go
  • Reserve parks and pavilions, go 
  • Trash/Recycling schedule, upcoming events widget on the sidebar
  • Upcoming community events and details, go
  • Options for paying HOA Dues, go
  • Links and maps to nearby restaurants, entertainment options, medical facilities and more, go
  • Discounts or services offered to residents of Spring Creek
  • Contact the Board, contact form on the right
  • Request information on financials from the community, go

Why the Update?

We changed platforms for managing the website to accommodate the ability to have a custom design, which allows us to provide more value to the community.

How did we do?
