Message from the Board – October 2021

The monthly HOA Board meeting was held on Monday, September 20, 2021, via Zoom and called to order at 6:35 p.m.  All Board members were in attendance, along with Becky and Allison from Sterling. We had one homeowner, Kent Sheffield, also in attendance.

The Board recently voted to contract our HOA services to Spectrum Association Management beginning October 1, 2021.  In the near future, you will receive a postcard from Spectrum with your account number on it.  Please do not throw it away – you will need this account number to access their website.  Spectrum provides online training for the Board and homeowners to go through the tools they offer to get our community up to standard and keep it looking its best.  You will receive more information on training in the weeks to come.  We are excited to partner with Spectrum and are looking forward to these positive changes.

We are officially under contract with Del Mar Pools to take over our pool maintenance for the 2021-2022 season.  After reviewing several other bids, the Board also chose Del Mar to replace the pool coping and broken tiles around the outside of the pools and to install backstroke flags in the lap pool.  We are hopeful the 2022 swim season will be better managed and we will not have the issues we had during the 2021 swim season.

The brick monuments throughout the community have been cleaned, repaired and re-painted.  We approved McKenna Contracting to do this work in July and, although it took a while to get it done, they look much better.

The Board is asking every homeowner in VOL to please contact our County Commissioner, Ken DeMerchant, about Voss Road.  The area between Highway 6 and Old Richmond is such an eyesore with the overgrown median, dirt and debris piled up at the curbs and trash throughout the area.  Please email Ken DeMerchant at commpct4@fortbendcountytx.gov and ask him to address these issues on Voss Road.  Please continue to email him each week until we see improvement.

The landscaping has been looking a bit rough lately because of the storm a couple of weeks ago.  The crew did not mow the week of the storm but, instead, spent their time cleaning up the debris around the neighborhood.  This past week, the crew only mowed parts of the medians along West Airport because there are irrigation leaks that need to be addressed.  After speaking to LMC on September 23rd, they are going to work on getting all of these issues addressed and will be back on schedule the week of September 27th.  The Fall color should be installed in November and the landscapers will go to every other week service the second week of November through the second week of March.

Movie Night will be held on Saturday, November 13, 2021 at the tennis courts.  We will provide more details in the November Message from the Board.

The Board would like to remind homeowners that your trash and recycle cans must be stored out of sight.  They are not to be stored in the front or on the side of your home.  We would also ask each homeowner to please pick up any stray trash or recycling left in the street or on your lawn after the truck has come through.
