Meet the District 1 Athens-Clarke County Commissioner Candidates

The Cedar Creek Civic Association is sponsoring a “Meet the District 1 Athens-Clarke County Commissioner Candidates” zoom event on Monday, April 25 from 7-8 pm. This will be a moderated discussion for members of the Cedar Creek neighborhood to meet the two candidates for County Commission District 1, Patrick Davenport and Audrey Hughes. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of time, which will be selected and asked to the candidates by the event moderators. Each candidate will be given the opportunity to answer each question, and time limits will be used to keep the event moving along. Our goal is a positive, engaging opportunity for Cedar Creek voters to meet the candidates for our new commission district and to learn more about them and their platform. The CCCA does not endorse candidates, but we do support participation in local elections, as well as keeping our residents informed about issues of local importance. More information about how to submit questions, as well as the zoom link, will be provided closer to April 25th. For now, save the date and time! Questions? Email Janet Frick at janetfrick@gmail.com, who will be hosting the event on zoom and will serve as one of the moderators. 

We appreciate our local businesses!

Dear Residents of Cedar Creek…

The Cedar Creek Civic Association (CCCA, a member-funded non-profit civic organization) is the oldest continuously active civic association in Athens. The CCCA supports the 657 households in the Cedar Creek Subdivision, promoting and protecting the Community’s great quality of life by looking after the Community’s entrances, green spaces, roads, and neighborhood watch.

The CCCA is managed through its Board. The CCCA Board is currently looking to fill a number of critical leadership positions, as of February 28, 2022. Board members are Cedar Creek residents who volunteer their time and talents to help keep the Cedar Creek subdivision a great place to live. Serving on the Board or on one of the Board’s committees does not require a lot of your time, typically 2 hours a month to attend the monthly Board meeting – which in the last two years has been a virtual Zoom meeting – and 0-2 hours a month to prepare your part in the meeting.

Please seriously consider volunteering. If you are even mildly interested in participating, contact any of the individuals listed below to get further information. Further information on Board openings is available on the Board and Committees page.

You CAN do this!!!

AT&T Notification for Cedar Creek (July 2021)

UPDATE 10/18/21 – AT&T has finished the underground installation of the western half of the neighborhood. All the flags they have left in place can now be removed.

From the CCCA Board
RE: Survey flags in the Cedar Creek Community

In late March, 2021, the job coordinator/sub-contractor for AT&T Southeast (https://southregion.att.com/) notified the CCCA Board via a letter that AT&T is planning an underground installation of orange innerduct containing state-of-the-art fiber optic cable in the western half of the Cedar Creek subdivision (the area west of the creek at the swimming pool) and a small portion of Cedar Pointe subdivision. The exact schedule for construction had not been determined at that time but was expected to begin in the second half of the summer. We were assured that door hangers explaining the process would be placed on the doors of impacted residences 3-5 days prior to construction. This notification will contain a phone number and e-mail address where questions about the project and associated landscape impacts can be discussed with the contractor.

The survey flags seen in the community mark underground facilities that must be protected/avoided during the construction process. Residents are asked to not remove these flags and to ask their landscapers to do the same.

This upgrade of our infrastructure has been approved by local authorities and is being provided at no cost to the community. It will require digging, underground boring and boring under driveways (collectively referred to as “stitch boring”) along with the installation of underground vaults (handholds in sizes 10″x15″, 17″x30″, 30″x48″) flush mounted to the ground (in a manner similar to water meter boxes). Conduits and handholds for underground fiber connections will be located throughout the community, all within legally platted utility easements or rights of way. Most residences in the impacted areas will be affected by this construction, but AT&T and its construction contractor guarantee that all distrurbed areas will be returned to “like condition” by the end of the construction project.

Approximately 10-14 weeks after the end of the project, residents will be able to subscribe to new AT&T services supported by this infrastructure upgrade.

Please see the attached pdf files for more information from AT&T.
