In & Around Cedar Park!

Following the quarterly HOA Breakfast meet-and-greet, a number of excellent resources were made available to residents.

 

1)      Fight the Bite/ Code Compliance Video

With the warmer weather out there, now is also the time for mosquitos.  Please remember that something as small as a water bottle cap with water in it is enough for mosquitos to breed in.

2)      Annual Waste Clean-Up (coming up April 7th):

As you may have seen by the separate event that we’ve created on the Creekview page, we invite you to save the date and those chemicals in your garage from your spring cleaning sessions for our annual Household Hazardous Waste free cleanup on April 7.

3)      Link to Parking Ordinances:

Recently there has been a rise in the number of requests the city has had for parking violations on neighborhood streets. There are a number of Texas laws and ordinances which affect parking and we wanted to send out a friendly reminder that if you park your vehicle incorrectly or in the wrong area you could become a hazard to emergency access, pedestrians or other motorists.

Parking in the street must be next to the curb and in the direction of the flow of traffic. You must be parked at least five feet from a public or private driveway unless you are parking in a cul-de-sac. You cannot park your vehicle in a crosswalk, or within an intersection or in a sidewalk, even in your own driveway. Finally, please make sure to be at least 30 feet away from stop signs, yield signs or other traffic signals at the side of the road.

5)      Trash bag limit:

If you’re thinking of raking those pesky oak leaves, please remember our 7-item bulk trash limit. It helps our trash trucks not get overfilled so they can finish their routes each day. (They make multiple trips daily to the landfill in Hutto.) Happy raking and enjoy the sunshine!

Pool Access for 2018 and beyond

As mentioned in the post below about the alarm, the HOA has replaced the access control system at the pool. Since there are so many old records in the database we will need to start fresh. You should have received a letter in the mail regarding the access. If you have already submitted the information to RealManage, then you do not need to do anything further. If you have not done, please click the link below to complete the audit form. You MUST have your access Fob with you to complete the form.

Please note that you will NOT have access to the pool area until the form is completed. If you need a replacement Fob please contact RealManage at 1-866-473-2573 after January 15th.

Summer Playground Safety

As we get into the high hot summer months, a couple of reminders when around the Playscape next to the pool:

  1. Children MUST be supervised by a parent or adult (ages 16 & older) at all times.
  2. Play equipment is designed for children 4-12. Adults should use caution when using the play equipment. Do not place children on laps when sliding.
  3. Please slide one at a time in a forward seated position, feet first. Please no climbing up the slide.
  4. Please no climbing or standing on the outside of the play equipment.
  5. Please no food, gum, or drinks on the play equipment.
  6. Please notify RealManage or a Board Member of any problems or concernsand Last but not Least!
  7. HAVE FUN!

On a related note, it came to the attention of the HOA that someone after grilling next to the playground, did not put the fire out in a proper manner. Unfortunately, this led to a small but quickly contained fire near the playscape. In this dry weather that we are having, please remember to properly and completely extinguish any fire in the grill and then dispose of the ashes and coals in a proper container.
