Q: How do I contact someone on the HOA Board if I have a question or concern? A: Simply send an email to our HOA email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is also how you can contact a committee chair; please make it clear who you are trying to contact.
Q: What do I do if I have a problem with my neighbor’s dog barking? A: First, we recommend speaking to your neighbor about it: perhaps they aren’t paying attention. If it continues, document the dates and times. Then report it to the Yukon Police Dept by calling their NON-emergency number: 405 354-2553. They will give a warning and eventually fines and restrictions may be imposed. They take it pretty seriously.
Q: How do I report a loose dog, a stray dog or pet abuse? A: All dogs must be on a leash in our neighborhood or under voice control within sight of the owner. If you see a loose dog and know who it belongs to, please start by contacting the owner. Express your concern. It is not only for the safety of residents, but also the animal. If the dog is off the leash more than three times, the Animal Control Shelter will get involved.
If you see a stray dog, call the City of Yukon Animal Control Shelter at 405 354-6312 during business hours. They will come and pick up the dog or lend you a trap so you can bring it in. The Animal Control Shelter will also remove deceased animals, including those in public areas. Lost dogs and cats are often captured by the Animal Control Shelter, and they will hold the animals for up to five days. Animal abuse can also be reported to Animal Control.
Q: What do I do if a neighbor repeatedly parks on the street overnight, limiting visibility and endangering children? A: We have a covenant against overnight on-street parking, but we also realize that it may be necessary from time to time, for a day or two. But if it occurs frequently, you are welcome to report to the HOA Board using the email above. We will issue a warning, followed up by a letter and as a last resort, a lien will be put on the property.
Q: How can I report an inoperable vehicle that has been parked on the street for over a week or two? A: This is a matter for the Yukon Police, as it is against city law for inoperable vehicles to be left parked on streets for more than a few days. They must be parked in a driveway. The Yukon police will issue a warning and then, if not moved, a ticket.
Q: I know I am required to have at least one tree in my front yard (two on a corner lot). What do I do if I have a dead tree or I need help selecting a tree that will survive Oklahoma weather? A: We recognize that not everyone has a green thumb and some homeowners don’t have equipment to remove a dead tree. We have a solution! Please contact our Compliance & Safety Committee. They have members who will help you remove the dead tree and may even have someone to help you plant a replacement. Members of our Park, Landscaping & Commons Committee are happy to give advice on best trees to plant.
Q: What role does the HOA play in enforcing our covenants and by-laws? A: We are not a policing body but we do play a key role in enforcing our by-laws and covenants. These rules are in place to protect all of us and to maintain safety and ensure a high quality of life at Frisco Ridge. We do not canvas the neighborhood searching for problems, but we respond to complaints and concerns voiced to us by Frisco Ridge residents.
Once a complaint has been issued, it is usually forwarded to the Safety & Compliance Committee for review and discussion. They may start by contacting the homeowner by phone or by sending an informal note explaining the non-compliance. This often resolves the problem. If the issue continues, that may be followed by a warning, and then in some cases, a registered letter. Regrettably, sometimes we have to resort to putting a lien on the property. We also have access to legal advice through our property management company to provide guidance to the Board, as needed. In some instances, it may be a matter for the City of Yukon, Animal Control or the Yukon Police Department, rather than the HOA.
If you have an issue, please contact us by using the official HOA Email so we have it in writing and can track it. In most cases, we will follow up with you, either by email or phone, usually by the Safety & Compliance Committee, but in some cases the Board member who is the liaison to that committee. If you have a serious issue that you want to present to the whole board, you may be given the opportunity to be on the agenda so you can speak at our next Board meeting.
Q: How do I find out about Upcoming HOA activities? A: We do two homeowners’ meetings a year—every January and July—in the Community Room at the Yukon Police Station. We usually host an Easter Egg Hunt, a Summer Picnic, a Fall Barbecue, and more. (If you would like to be part of the event planning, please consider joining the Event Planning Committee.) In addition, we encourage interested homeowners to decorate their homes for special holidays.
The most common ways we get the word out about upcoming events:
The Events Committee may do an annual event flyer or put a flyer on your door.
We publish 3-4 newsletters a year, and the event will be listed in the newsletter, depending on dates.
Q: What committees are there and how can I join a committee? If you’re interested, sign up at one of our two homeowners meetings or send us a quick email and let us know which committee you are interested in. We will have the committee chair contact you. We are always looking for people who are knowledgeable, have good ideas or have an interest in helping out.
Also, if you can’t participate the whole year, you are always welcome to help out on a project basis: weed/plant flowerbeds in the spring, clean out flowerbeds in the fall, help set up and/or take down after events, help with only one or two events…
We have the following committees:
Communications (help with Facebook, newsletter, website, etc.)
Park, Landscaping & Commons (help plan landscaping projects, oversee lawn care, plant flowers, recommend improvements, etc.)
Safety & Compliance (Review issues, recommend solutions, follow up with homeowners, etc.)
More information is available in our Committees section.
Q: What do I do if I see suspicious behavior in the neighborhood and am worried about possible criminal activity? A: The Yukon Police Department is happy to send an officer to patrol the neighborhood/street in question. Just give them a call and explain your concerns. Also, if you are going out of town, you can alert them ahead of time and they will have an officer do a check-up while you are gone.
Q: Who do I contact about a non-working street lamp or a broken stop sign? A: Non-working street lights should be reported directly to OG&E. You can call 800 272-9741 during business hours, or there is a form on their website you can complete (OGE.com). Just Google, “Report Street Light Outage” to get to the link.
Q: What do I do if a neighbor is not keeping his/her yard mowed? A: It may be that the homeowner is experiencing a short-term health issue or temporary situation. Perhaps you can be of assistance. But if you feel it is negligence, you should report it. All front yards and anything that can be seen from the street must be mowed and maintained. You can contact the Safety & Compliance Committee via the HOA email about this. However, we have no authority over mowing and care of backyards, if they are not visible to the public (behind fence).
Q: When is our trash day? A: Trash is picked up by the City of Yukon on Monday mornings. You sign up for water, sewer and trash through the City of Yukon. While you are at it, sign up for alerts so you can get info if trash day changes because of a holiday. You can request one or two trash receptacles for the same price. Please secure your trash so it does not blow into our streets, park and creek.
