Message from the Board – September 2021

The HOA Board met on August 9, 2021, via Zoom.  The entire board was present along with Becky and Allison from Sterling ASI.  We had several homeowners and Juan Villarreal from the MUD Board in attendance also.

Juan explained to the HOA Board what is happening with the Jain Temple project in the area adjacent to Village of Oak Lake.  We hope most of our homeowners saw the important message sent out on August 25th via email asking you to take action regarding this project.  There is a public hearing on Wednesday, September 2nd.  The deadline to provide input or sign up to speak is September 1st at 2:30 p.m.   We will provide an update as soon as we receive information from that meeting.

VOL Fall garage sales will take place the weekend of Friday, September 10th through Sunday, September12th.  Please remember to pick up your garage sale signs when you are finished with your garage sale.

The Board voted in the August meeting to contract with a new pool company for the 2021-2022 pool season. Tommy with Del Mar Pools joined the meeting to introduce the company and their philosophy.  After listening to all three pool company representatives, the Board decided Del Mar offered the best services and price for our community.  They will take over from Greater Houston Pool Management on October 1, 2021.

Sterling is currently getting bids on having the coping (tiles) around the pools replaced.  The freeze caused a lot of the tiles to flake off and break.  The Board is planning for this work to be performed in the off season so as not to cause any more disruptions to the extended swim season, which is currently scheduled to end on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

The landscaping proposals previously approved by the Board have now been completed.  We have new landscaping around the brick monument at Highway 6 and West Airport.  The new landscaping in this area is hard to see because the flowers are so big, but it will fill in nicely between now and Spring.  At Oak Lake Park, both end caps of the medians have been re-done, along with the landscaping at the brick monuments on the south side.  At the entrance off Voss Road the landscaping around the brick monument has been updated there, as well as in the medians along Noblewood Drive.

Yard of the Month has ended for this summer.  We would like to thank all our residents who maintain their yards and keep our neighborhood looking beautiful.  We look forward to seeing how the neighborhood will change for next summer when we start YOTM again in June 2022.

With school back in session now, the traffic along West Airport at Noblewood and Maple Downs is very hectic during drop off and pick up times.  Please use caution when going out at these times and pay attention to kids and parents walking to and from the school.
