Important Notice (Neighborhood Safety)

In a continued effort to keep our community safe, the HOA Board members met with Champaign’s Chief of Police, Tim Tyler, along with various city of Champaign neighborhood and community relations directors this week.

Chief Tyler wanted us to distribute his DIRECT cell phone number. He is encouraging us all to call or text him when issues with Providence residents arise. He mentioned he lives about 1.5 miles away and can get here quickly after hours.

Part of our conversation was the inability to provide enforcement after the fact, and he seems motivated to try and handle these issues in the moment.

That being said, if you see Providence residents (including children) trespassing, trying to access the pool or clubhouse, etc., feel free to call or text Chief Tyler as soon as possible so he can get here while they are still here. If you have pictures, text those to him as well so he has an idea of who he is looking for.

His phone number is: 217-530-3659

If something has already occurred (example: you catch something on your cameras from the night before), he encourages us to email him and copy 2 other Champaign officers of the incident. Please send to:

[email protected] (Chief of Police)

[email protected] (Champaign’s southwest district patrol lieutenant)

[email protected] (Deputy Chief of Operations)

Please be sure to still file an online report as well:

If Chief Tyler does not answer promptly, please call the non-emergency number:


If the incident is a true emergency, please call 9-1-1

Please continue to send the board and CBCDR pictures and videos of incidents as well so that we can send them to Providence’s property managers.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Significant Repairs to Building A1

Cobblefield Point Unit Owners,

As you now know, we have recently had some significant repairs required to Building A1 due to structural degradation and moisture infiltration inside the walls and flooring.  A construction company suggested that the repairs may have been required due to poor workmanship when the building was originally constructed.

The association hired an engineering firm to review the situation.  Additionally, the association filed a claim with its insurance company.  The insurance company hired its own forensic engineering firm (Donan Engineering) to evaluate the issue.  The engineering company that the association hired (Farnsworth Group) confirmed that there are several problems related to the original construction workmanship.  The forensic engineering firm hired by the insurance company also concluded that the damage was a result of faulty or improper workmanship.

HOA Fee Increase & 2018 Annual Election Results

At the annual meeting held on May 31, 2018, the Board voted to increase the monthly HOA fees to $200.00 beginning August 1, 2018. This increase is needed as there are a number of future maintenance upkeep and repairs that will be needed. The Board felt that a small monthly increase would be better than another special assessment that could be higher than the $2,000.00 incurred in 2015.

Additionally please be aware of the following updated/changed policy items to the Rules and Regulations:

  • Swimming Pool Policy (Page 7): No more than 4 guests are allowed from any one unit, unless cleared through the Board in advance. Owners or residents are responsible for their guests.
  • Pets (Page 9): No animals shall be permitted except for one (1) four-legged domesticated animal not to exceed forty (40) pounds. Current residents with two animals will be grandfathered in; however, future residents will be held to this policy. Reptiles of any type are not allowed.
  • Pets (Page 9): Per City of Champaign Ordinance all animals must be kept on a leash in the common and public areas at all times.
  • Parking (Page 8): No campers, boats, trailers, or trucks shall be parked outside on the property and no more than two (2) automobiles shall be kept or stored. Parking on the street is not permitted.
  • Cable or Dishes (Page 3): All cable lines must run inside of the condo – no lines or lines for holes may be cut or draped on the exterior of the building. Dishes cannot be attached to the balcony railings by bolts or screws.
  • Limited Elements Usage (Page 4). Residents may not have a garden or a compost pile in the limited common areas.

Water Leak & Service Impacts to Buildings B1, B2, & A7

Updated May 7th – We have just been informed that the concrete contractor had an emergency this morning and is unable to be on site today (5/7) to repair the water leak between buildings A-7 and B-2. The work has been rescheduled for tomorrow morning.

A water leak has been detected under the drive between buildings A-7 and B-2. In order to identify the location of the leak and to fix the problem, this portion of Thornhill will be closed on Monday, May 7th.  This driveway will be closed for a few days as new concrete will need to be placed after the work is completed.  Please do not park any cars in the small parking area facing the pond near building B-2. The contractors have requested that this area remain clear for their use.

In addition buildings A-7, B-1 and/or B-2 may lose water service on Monday due to this leak. Please plan accordingly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Myrna Webber at DRMCU or at 217-403-3300.

We appreciate the patience of all residents during this unexpected work.

Thank you,
HOA Board
