Call for Help!

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

  • By-laws Adhoc 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.

 

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 the standard department at vwoa-cc@sbcglobal.net.

Standards Tips

Play Structures must be wood, and a PIA must be submitted to the ARC for approval prior to placement.  They must be placed behind the dwelling.  They may not exceed twelve (12‟) feet in height as measured from ground level, and they must be at least or five (5‟) feet from any fencing for safety purposes. For those with colored canvas or tarpaulin roof covering they must be replaced when they become faded or torn.  More details can be found in the VWOA Standards.

 

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

 

Please remember the Bexar County leash law is in effect throughout our community. All pets must be on a leash and not roaming freely.

 

Public Safety Tip

Crime Stats for previous week:

Wynwood- Car vandalized while backed into driveway

 

Address House Numbering-

A visible/readable address number is required for a timely and accurate response for all emergency vehicles and law enforcement officials.  The street numbers do not require a PIA, however must be maintained on the dwelling not to exceed three (3”) inches in height and fully visible from the street at all times.  Those affixed to the dwelling should be clear of foliage and not blocked by lights or any other objects.  Affixing additional addresses anywhere else on the property requires submission of a PIA to the ARC for approval.  Only one of these is required, but having both helps ensure for your safety.

 

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.
