Standards Tips

Please don’t forget that holiday decorations need to be removed no later than fifteen (15) days following the actual holiday’s date.  Therefore, if you have any Halloween decorations out, they will need to be removed by November 15th.  In addition, decorations are permitted to be displayed no earlier than forty (40) days before Christmas, so please refrain from putting those out until November 15th as well.

 

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

Public Safety Tip

The VWOA does not have a designated time for trick or treating.    We do ask that you keep your lights off if you are choosing to not participate in distributing candy, as children primarily go to doors that have lights on.  If you are participating in trick or treating, please review the safety tips below.

 

Halloween Costume Safety

•Wear flame retardant costumes.

•Make sure your Halloween costume is colorfast so the color doesn’t run onto your other clothes if it rains.

•Try on costumes before Halloween to allow time for altering.

•Hem your costumes so you don’t trip and fall.

•Apply reflective tape to your Halloween costumes.

•Avoid cumbersome masks. Use make-up instead.

•Use only hypoallergenic and non-toxic makeup.

•Wear comfortable, practical shoes.

•Double tie your shoelaces so you don’t trip.

•Keep your costume and wig away from candles.

•Don’t carry fake swords, guns, knives or similar accessories that look authentic. Make sure they’re flexible and cannot harm anyone.

 

Trick-or-Treating Tips

•Plan your route ahead of time.

•Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods.

•Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries after dark.

•Take along a phone.

•Always trick or treat in groups, accompanied by an adult.

•Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.

•Walk. No running.

•Don’t trample through flower beds and gardens.

•Watch out for open flames in Jack-o-Lanterns.

•Walk with your head up and be aware of your surroundings.

•Only visit well lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses.

•Don’t enter any houses unless you know the people.

•Carry a spare Halloween bag, in case yours breaks or you fill your original one.

•Don’t approach unfamiliar pets and animals.

•Don’t cut across yards and stay out of backyards.

•Follow traffic signals and don’t jaywalk.

•Always watch for cars backing up or turning.

•Review the “stop, drop and roll” procedure in case your costume catches on fire.

•Never accept rides from strangers.

•Respect other people and their property.

•Be polite and say “thank you.”

•Don’t eat any candy until it’s inspected for tampering under bright lights.

•Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade.

•Small children should not be allowed hard candy they may choke on.

•Report any suspicious or criminal activity to an adult or the police.

•Consider having a party instead of Trick or Treating.

 

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

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.
