Archived Announcements

The older, but still applicable, announcements and general information are archived below:

County Recycling Changes:




Assistance with Potential Scams:  Neighbors-Helping-Neighbors (NHN) is offering a service to assist our residents in determining if they are being targeted by scam.  If in doubt, don't pull the wallet out!  Scammers frequently use scare tactics so do not pay anyone if you feel threatened or afraid.  Run the situation by a trusted friend, family member, the office, the police department, or NHN.  All consultations with NHN will be in the strictest confidence.  Please contact Caroline Bolin, NHN Chairwoman, if you have questions or need assistance.      

Online Payments:  Our management company allows various online payment options through their secure website.  If you wish to use this method to pay your HOA fees, please click here to see the various options available.

Phone Scams:  Our Neighborhood Watch team reminds residents not to give out personal information over the phone especially if receiving an unsolicited call.  Phone scammers are especially prevalent during the Medicare Open Enrollment season, October 15 to December 7.  Additionally, if anyone appears at your door purportedly representing Medicare (or any other solicitation) please inform them that door to door solicitation is not allowed in Crestwood Village and close the door.  Do not be a victim.

Community Security:  During the Board of Trustees meeting on September 25, 2018 community security was discussed.  Residents may want to consider keeping their exterior lights on during the night or installing motion detectors to activate exterior lights.  Additionally, if criminal activity is seen or suspected at any time of the day or night, please call 911 immediately rather than the office or our security company.

Frederick Police Report Potential Scam:  The Frederick Police Department reported on January 24, 2018 that scammers impersonating First Energy employees have been going door to door in some areas.  Do not provide them any information.  If you encounter such criminals, please contact the police at their non-emergency number:  301-600-2102.  Here is a link from First Energy regarding the scam:  First Energy Scams
