|Amendment Election Reconvened - November 10th|
Unfortunately, we did not achieve quorum for the Amendment Election held on October 13, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. at the Swim Club. Therefore, it has been reconvened to Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. As a reminder, we need approval by a minimum of 1,046 homes/ballots (67% of the membership to be represented) in order to proceed with the Amendment Election (open the ballots).
The proposed amendments included changes that would restrict short-term rentals (i.e. Airbnbs, etc.), implement term limits for the Board, and increase the number of members on the Design Review Committee to allow more members to serve/participate, among several other key changes. We encourage everyone to vote and let your voice be heard on these important topics that impact the community.
Please refer to the Voter’s Guide (located under the Documents Section, 2019 Election Documents folder) for more information on the proposed amendments and how your vote will affect the outcome.
Please mail your ballots to: Majority Rules, PO Box 608, Yorba Linda, CA 92885. You may also submit your ballots in person at the Reconvened Amendment Election on Tuesday, November 10th at 5:30pm at the Swim Club.

|SYCAMORE CREEK INSTAGRAM|
Sycamore Creek is now on INSTAGRAM!!!
If you have an Instagram or plan on creating one please add us at Sycamorecreek_3257. We have all the latest news and updates on events and activity going on inside Sycamore Creek. In order to be approved you will need to direct message the account with your name and address. Management will verify if you are a current resident and approve the request. If you have any questions regarding this account please email Crystal Trujillo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever wonder 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 a really long time, especially if an owner refuses to comply or doesn't communicate with the Board. The entire process can take several months up to 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 resolve/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.

Furthermore, thank you to the families that came out and grabbed a Rita's Ice Cream. It was nice to enjoy in these hot summer days.
|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 (800) 883-3880.
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 (Nordic Security) directly at 714-916-7059. 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 800-883-3880.
