Call for Help!

Your community needs your help.  There are important committees that need membership and support from community members:

  • Bylaws Ad-hoc Committee (reviewing and rewriting our bylaws to make them comply with our latest Texas State laws)
  • Public Safety Committee (identifying methods of making our neighborhoods safer)
  • Landscape Committee (designing landscape solutions and ideas for the common areas within Westcreek)
  • Pool Ad-hoc Committee (developing programs and establishing rules for the use of our community pools, a sub-committee under Sports and Park Committee).

These committees do not take up too much of your time and your input is critical to the success of our community.  Please volunteer and be an active member of our community and help us continue to make Westcreek a great place to live and raise our families.  Contact the staff at our Community Center if you are interested in serving on any of these committees.  Thank you.

 

 

Bexar County Public Works Information

Bexar County Public Works has suspended the road-paving project in Quail Meadows and the rest of Westcreek until July 9, 2012.

VWOA has spoken with many residents regarding their frustration over the conditions of the roads during the road work that has been underway. Unfortunately, VWOA does not have control over the roads as they are owned by Bexar County. Bexar County Public Works was contacted by VWOA to see if there were any alternative methods for maintaining the roads, but the method they are using is what is used throughout the county.

If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact Bexar County Public Works at 210-335-6700.

Bexar County Public Works will be spraying for mosquitos during the week of July 9, 2012 throughout the Villages of Westcreek.

Communications Committee Community Project

Communications Committee Project: The Communications Committee is currently working on a video project for our web site. We want to highlight our community and the surrounding areas for those who may look at our web site and consider moving into the Villages of Westcreek. If you are someone who feels they have a yard worth showing off and would allow the photographers for the Communications Committee to come over to your home and take pictures of your property please contact Ken Lemanski at vwoa-cc@sbcglobal.net.

 

Sports Park Improvements

The Sports Park fields are still under construction. Currently the fields are being reseeded, so please do not go on the areas that have been cordoned off. The Tot Lot, Tennis courts, Basketball court, and swimming pools will be available for use. Thank you for your cooperation during the improvements to the facilities.

 

Stage 2 Water Restrictions

We are still in Stage 2 water restrictions. Please visit www.saws.org website for more information.

AT&T FIBER OPTICS INFRASTRUCTURE

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.
