McKenzie WingDing get-together tonight!

Just a reminder that we are having a win cook-off and get-together tonight at 6:30pm at the end of McKenzie Drive in the circle. This is a great opportunity to see what our neighborhood social events are about and to talk to your board members if you so desire. Bring a covered dish or desert or just show up and sample the food and say hi. We hope to see you there. More information here:


Money for help!


Any strong people want to earn some $$ this weekend? 


I have been given a marble slab that I need to move this Saturday morning (July 21st).  It is a large, heavy piece that I just need loaded onto a trailer.  It is located in Fuquay in the Crooked Creek subivision. 


I need help and will pay a reasonable fee for your services.  Let me know!

We are researching improving the front entrance to the neighborhood

A neighbor attended a recent board meeting and suggested we add lighting to the front entryway signs or "monuments". In the past attempt was made to install cheap solar powered lights so people could see the name of the neighborhood at night, but the lights just don't hold up. The neighbor requested we install a better system. It turns out many neighbors agree with this suggestion. We are investigating how to install landscape lighting to not only improve visibiity and the beauty of our front entrance, but enhance neighborhood safety.

When are board meetings held?

The Homeowner's Association  Board of Directors meets the second Wednesday of every month. All homeowners are welcome. Please send us an email in advance to let us know you will be there and if there is anything you would like added to the agenda. You can usually find more detail in the Event calendar. Send emails to board@mckenziehoa.org.

Heavy Equipment Noise / Tree Felling on Western Border of McKenzie

Neighbors may have heard noises over the last few days from heavy equipment, including brush and tree clearing bobcats. As most of you know, the major north/south national gas pipeline runs underground along the boundary between McKenzie and Hopson Downs. A 25 foot boundary to either side of the pipeline must be maintained and this is routine mainenance that occurs every few years. The tree clearing will slightly affect the side of the protected floodplane on the Hopson Downs side.
