Standards Tips
Our standards allow for grass height up to five (5) inches. A lot of our residents make the mistake of scalping

their lawns when they mow because they think this will help satisfy the standard requirements. When you do
this, the only thing you are doing is putting unnecessary stress on your lawn and this will keep it from growing
properly. With improper mowing and the drought we have had, this is what has led to the large amount of
weeds that we had earlier this spring. You should only mow one-third of your grass each time you cut, this also
depends on the type of turf you have. Our standards do require some type of ground cover; you cannot have
just dirt for your yard. Other alternatives to grass are available such as Xeriscaping, hard cover, smaller grass
area etc.

The Standards for Architectural Design and Property Maintenance allow for easement access: Members of
the Board of Directors and the Architectural Review Committee, as well as the Superintendent of Standards,
Standards Compliance Monitors and those that are responsible for managing the Villages of Westcreek, have
a legally established permanent easement access to enter upon any and all residential properties within the
Villages of Westcreek to verify compliance with the CC&Rs and Standards. Except for circumstances involving
safety or health concerns, the VWOA associates mentioned above will make every attempt to obtain the
resident’s approval before entering the property beyond the fencing.

Keep Westcreek Beautiful. Do not litter. Please take a moment to dispose of any litter you may find.

Public Safety Tip
A community as large as the Villages of Westcreek is a representative or a Micro-Community of our
metropolitan area population. In our community we have people from different backgrounds, experiences,
nationalities. Several residents have recently contacted the VWOA Office because they have become aware of
a sex offender in their neighborhood. If you go to the Texas Department of Public Safety, Public Sex Offender
area of their web site and look up the 78253 zip code you will find there are 38 offenders for our Zip Code, 10
of them live in Westcreek. The association cannot dictate who lives in the Villages of Westcreek.

Mintco, the subcontractor for AT&T will need access to certain backyards. Over the next several weeks, Mintco crews will be working in the Villages of Westcreek. The crews will need to access backyard easements so crew members will be leaving door hangers. Should you receive one, we ask that you please make arrangements or accommodations for the crew members to have access.

Once the work is complete, they will mend any damage caused to your lot during this process.

If you, the homeowner, have any questions you may call Oscar Hernandez with Mintco at 210-634-9055.
