Welcome to Our Neighborhood!
This site is maintained by Hunter's Park Community Association, Inc. and is designed to be a communications center and an information resource for our residents. Feel free to contact us with your comments and suggestions.
It is no longer necessary to login to this Bear Creek Village website to check out all informational pages, all pages are now accessible.  HPCA will continue to use bearcreeknetwork.org for its general neighborhood informational format.   If you are an owner who would like to sign up for Portals Owner Access request an email invitation at board@bearcreeknetwork.org.
Pizza boxes are NOT recyclable and the gray polycart is ONLY for unbagged, loose recyclable materials. 
And speaking of recycling...CompuCycle and ShredTex will be in BCV on Saturday October 24 in the Wightman Pool parking lot from 9am until 11am. It's a drive-through event, just like last year. WCA sponsors this annual event for electronic recycling and paper shredding in our neighborhood. In 2019 CompuCycle picked up 2126 lbs of miscellaneous electronics from BCV residents.  
Visit the CompuCycle website for a list of acceptable electronic recyclable items.
According to your Deed Restrictions, hedges should be no more than six feet high.  And while you are stepping back and checking out your landscape during these nice Fall days, please make sure your vines, trees and hedges are not growing over into your neighbors' yards.  What makes a good neighborhood is nothing more than good neighbors.
Online Owner Access invitations will be going out again on November 1 to all owners HPCA has emails for.  If this access does not interest you, you can unsubscribe from receiving any more invitations.  If you would like to have access, simply create your login once you receive the invitation...
...and remember the HPCA office can now email you your statements and other correspondence (whether you want owner access or not).  If you want to receive statements, etc through email and not USPS please contact board@bearcreeknetwork.org.
Stay well, Neighbors!

Trash Pickup Notice
TUESDAY - Household waste, heavy trash & recycling
FRIDAYS - Household waste & heavy trash
Polycarts should be placed at the curb facing the street by 7AM on service days.
WCA is our trash provider. Service is set up through WCA and fees are directly paid to WCA by each resident household. To renew or begin service, call WCA at 281-368-8397. All service and billing questions should be directed to this number.
Please pay your account balance at least two weeks before the deadline in order for your stickers to arrive in the mail before the first day of the new quarter. WCA allows a 7-day grace period into the new quarter.
WCA operates a sticker program. You must have the appropriate colored sticker for your blue polycart and gray recycle polycart.  A current stickered polycart must be placed at the curb in order for yard debris placed at the curb or heavy trash to be picked up.  Every quarter, after your bill has been paid, a set of 2 colored stickers will be mailed to you. Put the stickers on a clean, dry surface on your blue polycart and gray recycle polycart so it is visible to the WCA truck.
Heavy trash is limited to two (2) items per service day.
Depending on the total neighborhood yard waste volume for the day, WCA may have to limit the number of yard bags picked up. Please put as many yard waste bags as possible in your blue polycart. Your tree service provider should remove all trunks and branches. Smaller trees and bushes should be bundled in 4 foot lengths for WCA pickup.
Concerning recycling materials: all items must be rinsed and dry and loose in the gray polycart. Do not bag recycle materials, and do not recycle glass or pizza boxes.
For more details about recycling, please go to the WCA website: WCA Acceptable Recycling Materials. 
Please store your polycarts out of public view except on days of service to avoid deed restriction violations and the possibility of fees. Out of public view means in the garage, in the backyard, or behind an approved structure.
No one wants to live in or visit a neighborhood with 3944 trash cans sitting in front of everyone's homes!
