Help Keep Creekshire Weed Free
As a reminder, weeds in lawns are not allowed in the Creekshire Community. Getting rid of weeds and preventing future growth takes time and effort, but can be achieved with proper care.
There are many ways to care for a lawn with Bermuda grass. The State of North Carolina Extension Service provides some helpful tips on their website. To open a new window with that information, please click on the image below.
This is a friendly reminder that street
parking for residents is not allowed
Street parking is only allowed
for Temporary Overflow Parking
If a vehicle is parked in front of your home daily for more than a few days that parking is not considered as temporary. Also, if there is room in your driveway the parking is not considered as overflow.
Efforts to enforce parking rules are being increased.
Creekshire residents are never allowed to park on streets, or block sidewalks, within the community.

You may need to replace your Smoke
and Carbon Monoxide detectors!
Most of the homes within Creekshire
were built by M/I Homes between 2012
and 2015. At least in many homes, M/I
Homes installed hard wired Smoke and
Carbon Monoxide detectors with battery
back-up manufactured by Kidde. The
most common model installed is
A member of the board spoke to a representative of Kidde recently and learned that this particular model has a life expectancy of 7 years and will give an audible warning when it has reached the end of its useful life. The detector will give two short beeps every 30 seconds to let you know the unit needs to be replaced. Changing the 9-volt battery will not stop the beeping sound. You will need to remove the detector from your ceiling and check the date of manufacture, which is shown on the back.
Kidde no longer manufactures this particular model, but offers a direct replacement, which is Kidde model # KN-COSM-1BA. The plug attached to the hardwiring of your house will plug directly into this detector without the need for modifications.
For more information from the manufacturer on end-of-life warnings on detectors click on the detector image above. These units are available from many sources including Amazon.
The most common smoke detectors used in Creekshire homes are also hardwired units with battery backup and are manufactured by Kidde. They have a life expectancy of 10 years.

Avoid Common Violations
Please inspect your home's siding
to look for mold and mildew. These
are common and need to be removed periodically. This can be accomplished
by using a brush with soap and water,
or by pressure washing. This is one of the most common violations noted by our community inspectors.
Also, should you wish to plant a
vegetable garden or planter behind your home, please check the Rules and Regulations Handbook for specific guidelines. You will find a link to the handbook on the Residents page of this website. This includes a maximum size of 48 square feet in an area of your back yard that cannot be seen from the front street.
As always, please use the Contact Us
page of this website to contact a
member of the board or our friends
at CAMS for more information.
It may be time to replace
your combination Smoke
and Carbon Monoxide
