|THE IMPORTANCE OF POOL RULES|
Sycamore Creek's Pool Rules were established to provide an enjoyable recreational opportunity for our community residents and their guests, and to assure the safety of every individual at the pool.
Sycamore Creek's Pool Rules may seem restrictive, but it is there for good reason. For instance, one rule states, "Rafts, boogie boards, or any other items that would obstruct a clear view of the water are not permitted." While many of us like to float on the water, consider what may happen if every household brought a water toy (a boogie board or “donut”, perhaps) to the pool? Chances are, there will be hardly any room in the pool to swim or float! From a safety standpoint, these devices will impede one's ability to swim in the pool. Moreover, these devices will block the view of the water, which will prevent a parent or guardian to keep a good, close watch on their child or guest.
As a Sycamore Creek resident, we encourage you to review Sycamore Creek's Pool Rules and to view the list of acceptable and unacceptable flotation devices. With your understanding and cooperation, you can help promote a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable time at the pool for your family and for your guests!
We need your help! Several of our cluster mailboxes have been broken into or outright stolen out from the ground. With over 75 cluster mailboxes, it’s impossible for the Sheriff’s Department and our own patrol company to effectively monitor each one. Therefore, we are encouraging residents be an advocate in your area by talking to each other and monitoring the cluster mailboxes on your street. The more people we have watching the numerous cluster mailboxes, the greater the chance that the criminals will be caught or at the very least, be deterred.
Please immediately report any suspicious activity to the local Sheriff’s Department (Lake Elsinore Station) by calling (951) 776-1099. In addition, please report all break-ins to the local Sheriff’s Department and the Postal Inspector’s Office at (877) 876-2455.
Thank you everyone for your efforts! Here are some mail theft prevention tips that were provided by the Sheriff’s Department.

Have you ever wondered what the Association is doing about those violations that you continue to see every day or feel that you have reported numerous times with no progress/resolution? The answer is that the entire process can take several months, especially if an owner refuses to comply or doesn't communicate with the Board. The entire process can take over a year to complete. And in very severe cases, it can take even longer.
The Association has and will continue to pursue each violation until it’s resolved/closed. It’s also important to note that the Board monitors and reviews all violations monthly to ensure that the enforcement of the guidelines is being conducted in a fair, consistent and timely manner.
To provide more transparency, we’ve added this section to the website for residents to see the current number of violations being opened and closed each month.
Please feel free to contact the administrative office with any questions or concerns.

|Secure your Vehicles!|
We want to remind all residents to be aware and immediately report any suspicious activity, vehicles and individuals to the local Sheriff’s Department (Lake Elsinore Station) by calling 9-1-1 in emergencies or (951) 776-1099 for non-emergencies. Please contact the Sheriff’s Department FIRST and then the patrol company SECOND. The patrol dispatch number is (833) 388-0071. You may also call the patrol officer on site at (310) 844-4424.
We encourage all of you to follow the below safety tips to ensure you are not victims to vehicle theft.
SECURE YOUR VEHICLE
PARK YOUR VEHICLES IN YOUR GARAGE
Car thieves are always looking for a car out on the street. If your car isn't on the street, it's less likely to get stolen or broken into.
HAVE AN ALARM STICKER OR LED ON YOUR VEHICLE
Just like the "Protected by Brinks" signs in front of houses deter burglars, so do visual signs of a tougher job for a car thief. In a row of cars, the one with the blinking LED indicating an alarm is probably less likely to get stolen.
DON’T LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR VEHICLE
Here's a scenario: you see Car One with a box of tissues on the floor. In front of that car is Car Two in which an iPod, navigation system, and a watch are strewn about the passenger's seat. Are you more tempted to break into Car One or Car Two? Pretty simple really — make it seem like there's nothing in your car worth taking.
LOCK THE DOORS
This one seems so simple, and yet is so often ignored. A thief looking for a car to steal is more likely to go for the vehicle whose owner was kind enough to complete his first step for him, and has given him open access to everything inside.
|Access Cards - Don't Leave Home Without It!|
Each Sycamore Creek resident (age 6 years and older) is required to bring their Access Cards when using the Swim Club facility. Sycamore Creek's patrol and administrative staff reserve the right to ask for an individual's Access Card at any time. If an individual cannot provide their Access Card, or if an individual is using someone else's Access Card, that individual will be asked to leave the property. If you've lost your Access Card please visit the SCCA administrative office to obtain a new one.
|SCCA Patrol Cell Number|
Update your contact list! You can now reach the Sycamore Creek Community Association's patrol officers (Immediate Guard Security) directly at 310-844-4424. As a reminder, residents should first contact the County of Riverside Sheriff's Department at 951-776-1099 to report suspicious persons, vehicles and activities, and then contact the patrol staff.
|Be Alert and Observant|
Crime does not play favorites. Regardless of where you live, work or play, you can become a victim. You can avoid being victims of petty crime by being aware of what goes on in your neighborhood. We ask all residents to be alert and observant for tell-tale signs of suspicious activities, such as:
Sycamore Creek is a community of hundreds of people strong. Imagine what you can do if you work together in in helping to prevent crime in your neighborhood.
REMINDER: To report suspicious vehicles or crimes in progress, you must FIRST contact the police at 9-1-1 (for emergencies) or Sheriff’s Department at 951-776-1099 (for non-emergencies). THEN, contact the community's Patrol Dispatch at 833-388-0071.
