Annual Assessment Due
Annual assessments of $357 per property are due by February 1. Please make your checks payable to Falls Creek Homeowners’ Association and deliver them to Dave Gibson at 7207 Trail Ridge Court.

Annual Meeting
The annual meeting for the Falls Creek Homeowners’ Association will be held at 7:00 PM on Monday, January 23 at the Harrod’s Creek Fire Department at 8905 US 42. On the agenda are:

  • The election of new members to the Board of Directors
  • A presentation by our Metro Councilperson, Kelly Downard
  • A presentation by the Graymoor-Devondale Police Department
  • A review of the 2006 budget

The FCHA Board of Directors consists of ten resident owners, serving staggered 2-year terms. Thus, each year, five positions are up for election. Directors with expiring terms are Dave Gibson, Dennis McGlincy, Gerrit Schroeder, Rick Woods, and a position unfilled from the resignation earlier this year of Liz Coomes. Dennis McGlincy and Rick Woods are retiring from the board after serving for four years. We thank them for their dedication. The board voted to elect Dave Gibson to fill the remaining year in the term of Ramona Belden. Up for election to new terms at the annual meeting are Gerrit Schroeder (reelection), Phil Bezehertny, Mary Hutchinson, Charlie Nally, and Terry Seelow.

Ramona Belden

The FCHA Board of Directors and the entire Falls Creek community suffered a loss in December with the death of Ramona Belden. Ramona was a long-term resident of Falls Creek with her husband Lorne (a former FCHA board member) and their children, Lorne III and Jennifer Carpenter. Ramona was the epitome of a Board member and a great neighbor. She worked selflessly to improve Falls Creek’s landscaping and beautification, making valuable contributions. Her sincere efforts will be missed by us all.


Ivy Ridge

On December 19, the Louisville Metro Planning Commission recommended approval of the rezoning of the Ivy Ridge parcel of the Beech Spring Farms development. This rezoning from single family (R-4) to higher-density (R-5A) allows for the development of 92 patio homes in the 20-acre Ivy Ridge parcel. The Falls Creek Board of Directors, as well as neighboring developments, opposed the rezoning. As a result, the original proposal was reduced from 100 homes, improvements in design were made to improve the fit with the character of our neighborhood, and increased landscaping was put in place to soften the impact. While the result was not what we lobbied for, it was a significant improvement from the proposal to which we originally objected. This proposal must now be approved by the Louisville Metro Council. The FCHA board will be working with Beech Spring Farms and Ivy Ridge to jointly coordinate common services in 2006.
