Request for Candy Donations

The trees are starting to bud and the temperatures are feeling like Spring. Mother Nature must be thinking like the Westcreek staff! Spring is right around the corner along with our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Saturday, March 23, 2013.  As we have in the past we are requesting donations of candy to fill the eggs.  Please be mindful when purchasing your individually wrapped candy that it must fit inside the plastic Easter eggs and allow the top to lock in place. In addition, due to melting issues, please purchase non-chocolate candies. We look for the number of kids to increase this year and Thank You in advance for your support.

Standards Tips

The following issue has been mentioned in the past; however, we still seem to have issues.  Bexar County requires that animals must be leashed when outside the confines of the home or fenced area.  The Villages of Westcreek has to comply with this law, which includes both cats and dogs.  The VWOA also strongly encourages you to clean-up after your pets not only for sanitary purposes, but also for the consideration of your neighbors and others.


Crime Report

Week of 1/20/13-1/26/13~VWOA~Sports Park Fields~ Sprinkler heads at sports park were vandalized & damaged


Please remember to be observant in your neighborhood. Report any suspicious activities or persons to the Bexar County Sherriff’s office. (210) 335-6000


Public Safety Tip

Vehicles rated over 1 ton may not be parked on any property within the Villages of Westcreek and are subject to ticketing by law enforcement. Utility/cargo trailers parked in the driveway or the street are not allowed unless agreed to between the resident, the Standards Compliance Monitor or the Standards Superintendent. Part of the reason for these regulations is
for the appearance of the neighborhood, but is goes beyond that.  This is for the safety of our residents.  These types of vehicles obstruct the vision of pedestrians and inhibit clear pathways for emergency vehicles and residents.


If you see graffiti or vandalism in the Villages of Westcreek, please report it to the office at 679-8761.

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.
