By Susie Stern – Omaha, NEBRASKA — Discussion about installing cluster mailboxes, special guests like the citizen patrol, and an Omaha Police captain seems to be what attracted one of the largest resident audiences in our neighborhood’s history.
Close to 40 lot owners attended the Thursday, February 9, 2017 Elk Creek Crossing Homeowner’s Association meeting held after dark at Standing Bear Elementary. In case you missed it, watch this video which captures the meeting in full, with slight editing for clarity.
ECC HOA Covenant Amendments
The HOA allows satellite dishes and TV antennas affixed to homes. In this day and age of small home-based business, these activities are also permitted. While the original Covenants allowed a homeowner to own 2 dogs or 2 cats total, these restrictions have been lifted, and residents may refer to city of Omaha law regarding pet ownership: 3 dogs, 5 cats and 1 mini pig.
Additional Covenant Amendments
Below-ground swimming pools and small-scale sheds are allowed in Elk Creek Crossing – with prior HOA board approval. The shed dimensions that are allowed are 6′ x 8′ x 8′ (height) in earth tones. As for fences – the board has clarified that fences must only be board-on-board wood, may not be taller than 6-foot high, and should be regularly maintained. Fence maintenance is defined as periodic pressure washing, staining and/or painting. Decks should be similarly kept in good condition.
