The City of Bozeman requires that sidewalks be cleared by homeowners or tenants within 24 hours of snowfall. It is a hazard for those using the sidewalks when they are not cleared. Your neighbors ask that you please clear them in a timely manner so they are safely accessible. You can report homeowners that do not shovel their sidewalk so the City of Bozeman compliance officer. (406) 582-2300
Parking on the street causes danger to drivers and the plowing company as they cannot safely pass. We ask that you please park your vehicle in the driveway or the garage, off the street. The City of Bozeman prohibits extended street parking . You can report vehicles using this link: https://www.bozeman.net/departments/economic-development/parking/parking-complaint

Dogs off leash
A friendly reminder to dog owners to please keep your dogs on leash at all times and cleaned up immediately after your pup does their business. Also, Meadow Creek will be installing new leash signage at each of the dog bag stations.
There seems to be many dogs off lead and doing their business and humans not cleaning up after them. We understand it is getting cold outside, however, we still need to be good neighbors and keep the neighborhood looking nice year-round! It is also important to understand that not all dogs and people like when an off-lead dog runs up to greet them. Many dogs react aggressively when an off-lead dog runs up to them, even when they are a well-behaved dog normally. Please be respectful of others and the Meadow Creek Covenants by cleaning up after your dog and keeping them on lead.
The following are designated OFF LEASH areas within the City of Bozeman:
Peets Hill/Burke Park
Gallatin County Regional Park (in designated area)
Bozeman Pond (in designated fenced dog park)
Snowfill Recreation Area
Thank you for being a mindful pet owner and keeping the neighborhood clean and free of pet waste!

Spring 2022 Lawn Newsletter
Just a few reminders from your HOA!
Lawn Maintenance and Weeds
Oh summer, we love you, but we don't love the weeds that come with the warmer weather and sunshine! A friendly reminder to all homeowners that all lawns and weeds need to be maintained on your lots, whether your home is built or the lot is vacant. This includes front yards, side yards, back yards, alleys, driveways, gravel/zero-scapes, etc. We will be doing drive thrus to make sure all lawns/lots are being maintained and weeds are being controlled. We are happy to recommend vendors for lawn/lot maintenance and weed spraying if you do not want to do this yourself!
Dandelions are not considered to be a noxious weed, however, they are classified by the State of Montana as a nuisance weed. These are considered to be unsightly and need to be controlled by homeowners. If you prefer to grow dandelions for their medicinal purposes, please plant them in a designated garden bed or flower pots.
Remember that any changes to your lot, home, fences, major landscaping, etc, needs to be approved by the design review committee. Please contact Alyssa Durkee with Legacy Properties for the forms and design review requirements for your HOA!
Trash cans need to be stored in your garage or behind an approved enclosure all days except pick up day.
Campers, Recreational Vehicles, Etc
Recreational season is approaching fast! Campers, trailers, boats, any type of recreational vehicles, are not allowed to be stored on the streets or in your driveways except for loading and unloading purposes per your covenants. Please reach out to Alyssa Durkee with Legacy Properties with any questions regarding this.
Your community appreciates your cooperation!
Meadow Creek Snow Removal
Happy Snow Day!
We just wanted to send out a quick reminder regarding snow removal in Meadow Creek.
All of the City Streets are plowed by the City of Bozeman. We ask that you try your best to park all cars in your garages and driveways so better snow removal can take place.
Sidewalks bordering your personal residence are also required to have snow removed within 24 hours of the snow fall as per Bozeman City Code. Owners are welcome to issue a complaint to the City directly if sidewalks are not being cleared. The link below will take you to the City of Bozeman snow removal page. This page contains phone numbers and emails to contact for any issues, among other useful information.
Common area sidewalks are cleared by the HOA vendor. Sidewalks around the City park areas are cleared by the City.
Thank you for your patience while dealing with our Bozeman weather. Have an amazing day!

Bear Activity in Meadow Creek
In April 2021, a bear was sited in Meadow Creek Park. Please exercise caution and take extra care that your trash is not attracting bear activity. Thank you!
This notice is a friendly reminder to dog owners to please keep your dogs on leash and cleaned up after. This leash enforcement includes the friendliest and most well behaved dogs as well as those still learning.
Thank you for your understanding that some residents may not be dog lovers and that even the sweetest of pups may cause legitimate fear issues in your neighbors.
Trash Cans - Collection Days
It has been noticed that a number of owners place their trash cans out the night before pick up. We are asking that you please wait until the morning of pick up to put your cans out. Our neighborhood sees some wildlife traffic (black bears, raccoons, foxes, etc.). Having garbage out at night attracts critters. If they know they can find snacks at night, the area could get frequented more often. The covenants do specifically state that trash is not to be put on the curb until the day of pick up and put away the same day of pick up.
We truly appreciate your help in keeping our community safe and a great place to live!
SPEEDING IN MEADOW CREEK
