  • Master Board meets the third Tuesday of each month. Agendas are posted to the website prior to each meeting. The Master board sits over both Garden Court HOA and Domain HOA boards which meet separately. An informal joint session of these three boards convenes as needed.
6.  Architectural Control Review Process and other Documents.  
  • Before you begin ANY construction, contact the Architectural Review Committee (ARC). Permission to construct must be submitted to and approved by the ARC prior to start of project. Find ARC Request forms in the directory on this website.
  • All of the official documents are accessible on the website. You will find them under Documents in the website Directory. A full set of Deed Restriction is required to be handed out by the Title Company at closing. A Summary of Deed Restrictions is included in the Residents Handbook given out at all newcomer visits. Find a copy under the Architectural Review on the Homepage task bar. 
7.  HOA Dues.  Dues are payable every year on January 1st and due NLT January 29. It is the norm for homeowners to have paid the balance of current year dues at escrow in the closing process but check your status with the HOA management to be sure. Our Management applies a late fee of $25.00/month effective January 30. You may pay on line on Spectrum's website, www.Spectrumam.com or mail check to the HOA Management Office on or before the due date.
 
8.  Kings Crossing HOA and non-HOA Properties.  Kings Crossing HOA is comprised of 1,420 lots of which approximately 10 are vacant, buildable lots and several common area spaces. There are two private properties and one public park within the Kings Crossing community. As such, these properties are not associated with or under the control of the HOA.
  • The 220 acres that comprise the former golf course and 15 acres Clubhouse grounds are private property. When residents walk on the course cart paths, they do so knowing this is private land.Per city code, dumping debris of any kind is unauthorized on private property.
  • The vacant property attached to the Kings Crossing Church of Christ on the corner of Loire and Strasbourg is part of the church grounds
  • Saint Denis Park located along Saint Denis Dr. is a public park maintained by the city.
9.  Drought Restrictions. No drought stages are currently in effect by the City. If reinstated, Stage 1  watering is limited to hours before 10am and after 6pm. If Drought Stage 2 is reinstated, automatic sprinklers may only run on Trash pickup day which, for Kings Crossing is on Thursdays. Hand watering is permitted any time.
 
10.  Safety.
  • The speed limit in Kings Crossing is 30 mph. However, a 15 mph school zone is located along Strasbourg as it nears Grenoble and runs the full length of Grenoble. Check posted signs in this area for times.
  • Coyotes and bobcat and poisonous snakes (Rattlesnake, Coral and Water Moccasin) exist in and around our community. Some guidelines:
  • Walk your dog on a short leash, at your side, not behind you, at all times. If you encounter a coyote, pick up the dog or keep it close to you and walk away.
  • Don’t walk near bushy vegetation, particularly at dusk and dawn, and avoid walking near abandoned or neglected properties.
  • Carry a flashlight, air horn, or bear or pepper spray when walking. If caught unprepared, shout and throw small objects.
  • Report sightings to local animal control, especially if the animal isn’t easily intimidated by loud noise or bright light or if you see the animal during daylight hours.
  • To ensure they do not become permanent neighbors:
  • Do not leave trash bins on the street or set food out. Secure lids on trash and recycling bins.
  • Pick fruit as soon as it’s ripe, and pick up and discard fallen fruit daily.
  • Avoid bird feeders. The aroma attracts scavengers even though they can’t reach the nuts and seeds.
  • Don’t put meat scraps in compost heaps.
  • Don’t leave cats and dogs outside unattended, especially at night.
  • Be wary of snakes when walking in tall grass or in normally undisturbed areas where snakes may be sunning.
