Last Weekend’s Westcreek Jubilee Celebration

VWOA hosted the Westcreek Jubilee Celebration last Saturday which was a success. We had more than 1,234 participants at this event.  All had a great time with the carnival rides, games, music, food and a great car show.  The car show winners were as follows, First Place Winner-1960 Chevy Impala by Owner Loui Mora, Second Place Winner-1966 Mustang by Owner Tyler, Third Place Winner-2015 Ford Mustang GT by Owner Brian Hoffman.  Congratulations to these winners. We thank these and the other car show contestants for bringing in their beautiful cars to show us.  We would also like to thank the volunteers and staff who placed a lot of their time and efforts into making this a memorable and fun event!  From the Board of Directors and the Management team, thank you for all of your hard work!

Standards Tips

Ground cover, such as natural grass, artificial/synthetic turf or xeriscaping is required throughout the entire property to prevent soil erosion and to enhance home values by maintaining attractive properties. If you choose to do anything other than grass, it is necessary to submit a Property Improvement Application (PIA) with a comprehensive description of all plantings and materials along with a copy of the Plat/Lot Survey showing the proposed location(s) to the Architecture Review Committee (ARC) for consideration prior to the initiation of any improvement.

Xeriscaping is useful in areas that have little rain and/or mandatory water restrictions. When plants are combined with ground cover such items as rock, gravel, flagstone, wood chips or mulch they can present a very attractive appearance. For the type of a. plants that thrive well in hot climates with little water; and b. appropriate ground cover, suggest that local garden nurseries and/or professional xeriscaping companies be contacted for advice. Recommend viewing website www.saws.org for seven simple steps to successful xeriscaping. If using rock and gravel for ground cover, suggest that their size be no larger than nickels and quarters for the ease of walking on.  Also, a good grade of weed blocking material is recommended to help prevent any vegetation from growing through the ground cover.  Any plants closer than ten (10′) feet from the curb are to be kept trimmed to three (3′) feet in height, as measured from ground level, to provide adequate visibility for motorists backing out of driveways and at intersections.

 

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

 

Please be sure to pick up after your animals on all common areas and while in the Sports Park.  A pet waste station is located next to the park rules sign.

Public Safety Tip

Keep your car keys on your night table. If like millions of Americans, your key-fob contains a panic alert button, and your car is in range of your bedroom, pressing the panic button will cause the horn to blast and the headlights to flash — potentially saving lives during a home invasion by scaring criminals away, alerting neighbors to the fact that an emergency situation is unfolding, and helping police to more quickly find your home.

 

If you have a suggestion, idea or concern, please contact the Public Safety Committee Chair- Nick Giardino at (210) 241-2420.

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.
