CCPOA Board has authorized the extension of periodic PBSO traffic safety patrols within the neighborhood through the end of the year. PBSO deputies have written over 30 traffic citations and warnings, primarily for speeding and stop sign violations over the last couple of months since the program started. The more visible law enforcement presence is expected to have a crime deterrent effect within the neighborhood.
One of the most common crimes in Palm Beach County is theft from unlocked vehicles. Please remember to lock the doors on your vehicles and close garage doors to reduce the attractive nature for these crimes of opportunity.
There has been a noticeable increase in accumulations of yard debris in the neighborhood. It is a violation of our Association’s rules and the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority to place yard waste at curbside before Friday for the scheduled Saturday pickup. Our neighbors are reminded to have their landscape service contractors remove accumulations of yard waste when they complete their work, place it on the side of the house for later transfer to the curb prior to Saturday’s pickup, or arrange with the Solid Waste Authority for a special pickup during the week.
These accumulations are unsightly as the plant materials die and can attract rodents and other pests to the neighborhood. Formal first warnings will be issued and subsequent violations could result in fines.
The Association is requesting that all members complete the form that authorizes email as an official form of correspondence between the Association and its members. This authorization is viewed as both a time and cost saving measure for the Association. The form was just mailed via postal service mail to each Association member household. The form can also be downloaded from the forms tab on the CCPOA website at CypressCreekPOA.ORG.
Please sign the form and return it to our property manager, Ben Meyers, at Vesta Property Services, Suite 118, Boca Raton, FL 33487. The Association will continue to post required meeting notices in the display cases as you exit the neighborhood.
As a reminder, the fourth quarterly Assessment fees are due October 1, 2020.
The CCPOA Board of Directors has received complaints regarding political flags and signs being displayed within the neighborhood and the Board discourages it.
Signs are specifically prohibited, however flags are not prohibited within the governing documents.
The prohibition of signs includes, but is not limited to, real estate signs, sales signs, business signs, political signs, religious signs, school signs, congratulatory signs, and team support signs.
Any resident displaying a sign is willfully violating the Association’s governing documents and will receive a violation notice.
State and Federal law protects only the display of the U.S. Flag, the State of Florida Flag, and the flags representing the branches of the U.S. Military. These flags would be exempt from any amendment to the governing documents. The Association does have the legal right to enforce “reasonableness” in terms of the size of all flags displayed within the neighborhood, including those protected by State and Federal law. Political, school or team flags, regardless of personal opinion, are not prohibited in the approved governing documents of the Association.
Given the strong neighborhood opinions on both sides of this issue, the Board believes that it would be difficult and costly to obtain sufficient community votes in order to approve an amendment to the existing governing documents. Residents on both sides of this issue have threatened legal action against the Cypress Creek Property Owners’ Association, and therefore upon advice from legal counsel, the Board will follow a strict interpretation of the Association’s governing documents.
We thank you in advance for your support.
The September meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on Thursday, September 24th, starting at 6:30PM. The September meeting of the Architectural Review Committee meeting will held on Thursday, September 17th, beginning at 6:00pm.
The Architectural Review Committee respectfully requests that property owners try to submit their requests for approvals one week before the meeting. This will give the Committee sufficient time to share files and materials and review applications, a process which is hampered during the COVID-19 crisis as the sharing of documentation (e.g., product samples or color chips) is difficult during virtual meetings. The Committee will do its best to review applications submitted after June 11th, but would appreciate your cooperation during these uncertain times.

Everyone knows that trash is not good for our waterways, but many people unwittingly contribute to water pollution because they do not understand that “natural” trash like leaves, grass clippings, and pet waste can become pollutants when they enter the water. Additionally, storm drains are part of the local flood control system helping to move stormwater away from homes and businesses.
