There have been some issues noted with the Ash trees along Greenfield Trail recently, with several of them appearing to be dying. It is possible that the trees may have been infested with the Emerald Ash Borer Beetle that has caused serious problems to Ash trees across Kentucky. These infestations, if that is what is occurring, are difficult to treat and the treatment may take up to 10 years, or at least until the State infestation stops. It is the recommendation of the Board that as these Ash trees die off or are removed, that they are replaced by the recommended tree.
It is the responsibility of the homeowners to maintain and replace these trees as needed and as such please do not replace these Ash trees with other Ash trees. If any resident has a question about this please let the Board know.

There are currently 2 styles of mailboxes that are used in the Silver Creek Development. Mailboxes are to be installed by the original builder of the homes; however the care, maintenance, and replacement of these mailboxes is the responsibility of the homeowner(s). Below will be information on ordering new mailboxes as well as replacements parts and care/maintenance instructions.
Inspect your unit once a year and re-paint as necessary. Spraying a little WD-40 on the mailbox door hinges may help slow down the rusting process in that area. But because the units are out in the elements with mail carriers pulling on the door almost daily, the hinges will wear out eventually and the mailbox will need to be replaced at that time.
