Landscaping and Greenbelt Guidelines

The Master Declaration of the Association requires owners keep their lawns and landscaping well maintained and in good condition at all times. We have provided guidance on lawn and landscape care here.

Note: You are responsible to remove any dumped brush, yard debris and trash adjacent to your property regardless of who may have put it there.  You may be fined if you fail to do so.  Be aware that the Canyon Creek board may seek to motion to codify certain fines against members that fail to engage in cleaning up debris that they may have discarded into the HOA Greenbelt area.  Especially note the areas marked as “HOA Property, not maintained” in this chart of maintenance plan.

The next Large brush pick-up is on August 13, 2018.  Contact the if you need assistance.
