Continuing Immediate Call for HOA Board Members!!!

posted Jun 14, 2017, 12:24 PM by Domain Administrator   [ updated Jul 19, 2017, 2:14 PM ]

An update from our July meeting, Jan and I will be leaving the board at the end of the year.  We have new members at large (I've added their names to our website) but nobody has commited to board positions at this time.  The need still exists to please read further:

I need to send a shout out to the body of our HOA (that means you, the homeowner), we have an immediate need for new board members, the current board includes myself (President), Jim Hulsman (Treasurer), Jan Bennett (Secretary).

Jan was on the very first board back in the mid 80's, and has been graciously assisting us communicating with the neighborhood and taking critical meeting minutes.  Jim and I have been working for 8 years, with on again, off again assistance.  All three of us have worked to keep the neighborhood functioning, maintained, looking good and a safe environment.  Longer than any other board members in the past.

We urge you to join and encourage others to replace and refresh our HOA.  If there is enough contribution we could possibly bring back some of the events we were known for in past years like neighborhood garage sales, night out against crime (national event in August), neighborhood picnics, events at the soccer field, etc.

 Immediate positions available are President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary.  These positions are well defined and easy to implement, we will also provide consultation during the transition period for as long as it takes.

 If you have the bandwidth we could sure use your help, feel free to contact me at the numbers below with any questions you may have.  Thank you for your consideration.

 Sincerely,

Brad Schwartz

Annual HOA Membership Meeting for 2017

posted Dec 15, 2016, 12:11 PM by Domain Administrator   [ updated Dec 15, 2016, 12:20 PM ]

Our annual membership meeting will be held on Wednesday January 11, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the public meeting room of Fire Station #82 right across the street from the Deerfield sports field. 

The meeting agenda will be:

  • Opening remarks Treasurer’s Report
    • Review of 2016 expenditures and discussion of activities for the year
    • Presentation of 2017 Budget and discussion of proposed activities for the upcoming year 
  • Question & Answer
  • Call and election of Board members for 2017
  • Adjournment

The current board members have all been involved in the activities supporting your homeowners’ association for over five years now. The association relies on members to get involved and volunteer some of their time to help manage the activities of the association in order to help maintain our neighborhood as a desirable place to live. At this time we have a great need for some new members to come forward and join the board and take on some of the activities needed to manage the association. We specifically need members to come forward and assume the positions of President and Treasurer for the HOA. Members can also help out by volunteering to be a ‘Member-at-Large’ board member to assist on specific projects. Please make the time to attend the annual meeting and volunteer for the board. If for some reason you cannot attend the meeting but would like to join the board please contact the board before the meeting at board@deerfieldsammamish.com and let us know.

The Board also meets monthly at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month (depending on availability of its members). It usually meets at the public meeting room at the fire station across from our sports field. All members are welcomed and encouraged to attend these board meetings.

Winter Reminders

With the rains coming we’d like to ask our homeowners to help keep flooding of the streets in the neighborhood to a minimum by making sure the storm drains near their homes are cleared of any debris. This will help prevent any water backups on the streets that could freeze and pose a hazard in those times when the weather turns very cold.

Let’s Help Keep Crime Out of Our Neighborhood

As the holiday season approaches, many of you will have packages shipped and delivered to your homes. Thieves know this and won't hesitate to walk up and take those packages from your porch. Take some steps to protect your items. Ship them to a secure location such as work or a post office box. Request a tracking number so you know when your package will be delivered and can be home, or request a signature for delivery. If you’re not going to be home ask a neighbor to pick up any packages which you know will be delivered. Don't make it easy for thieves to have a great holiday at your expense.

Also, in the last few months, we’ve had reports of car break-ins in our neighborhood. We want to make sure that all of our homeowners are reminded to just do the following:
1. Do not leave anything visible inside the car that will tempt anyone. Always lock your car. Keep your garage doors closed.
2. When you hear or see something outside, do not go out and yell at the suspect(s). Call 911, get a description of the person(s)
or car and stay on the line, do not alert the suspect. The officers will come in to the area from different directions and will be aware of the vehicle or person. More often the car is what they will locate and stop.

3. Make sure every neighbor reports their incidents. If it’s not in progress, call 206-296-3311 or file an electronic report at http://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/sheriff/on-line-reporting/on-line-reporting.aspx

Summer Is Here!

The time for summer vacations is fast approaching. We would like to take this opportunity to remind all our Deerfield HOA members that the CC&Rs specify if you have a boat, camper or RV they cannot be stored or parked long term on your property unless they are completely screened in from the street and your neighbors lots. Please be considerate and maintain the appeal of our neighborhood by not parking these vehicles at your home for more than 48 hours.

The Sammamish Police Department has provided the following checklist of items to consider when going on vacation to better protect your home and property:

  • Notify responsible neighbors or relatives of your itinerary and contact numbers. Check to make sure that you have their
  • telephone number.
  • If you are going to be out of town for a period of three (3) days or longer, the Sammamish Police Department provides vacation house checks by sending an officer on random checks of your home while you are away. This service is available for City of Sammamish residents only. Please download the House Check Request form from the Police website and return to Sammamish Police, 801 – 228th Avenue SE, Sammamish WA 98075. The form can be found at: http://www.sammamish.us/departments/lawenforcement/Default.aspx?page=vacation (See the Vacation Request Form pdf on the right side of this webpage)
  • Arrange with a neighbor to pick up and hold your mail and newspapers so they don’t pile up. If this is not possible, notify your news-carrier and the post office to discontinue these deliveries.
  • Do not leave easily stolen objects such as power mowers, garden hoses, lawn chairs, and bicycles in your yard.
  • Unplug your garage door opener so that your garage doors are secure. Consider placing a padlock through the track for extra security.
  • If your vehicle is left in your garage or driveway while you are away, make sure it is locked.
  • Close and lock all windows and sliding doors. Make sure that a “Charley bar” is secure on sliding doors, and that all screens or storm windows are locked or fastened.
  • Set your electrical timer to turn some lights on and off during the evening hours. Avoid publicity about your trip until you return home.

Hopefully, you’ll find these tips useful. Following them can help with security for the entire neighborhood.

Sports Field Reservation:

If you would like to reserve the sports field for an activity, such as soccer practices, please contact the Board directly. The field is available free to Deerfield residents. We have created an online calendar on our Deerfield website where you can check on the availability of the field and request a reservation, http://www.deerfieldsammamish.com/homeowner-forms/soccer-field-reservation

Please be sure to keep up with yard maintenance

Finally, with the abundant summer sunshine, yard maintenance is even more essential. As a rule of thumb, we ask:

  • lawns be mowed weekly and edged periodically,
  • weeds are removed as needed (including on driveways, along fences and in the sidewalks/gutters adjacent to your house),
  • trash cans are stored out of sight from the street,
  • bushes, trees and plants growing out over the sidewalks or around and near the mailboxes be trimmed so as not to obstruct people using the sidewalks and mailboxes. Also, please make sure any trees are trimmed up so that people don’t need to duck down to avoid limbs.

Remember, this is your community please help in making it a great place to live by getting involved with your Association.
