A Word from the HOA President


After a hiatus of about 3 years, I am very pleased that we now have a vibrant Newsletter committee working diligently to publish quarterly newsletters. Please join me in thanking the members: Sarah Brumit (Editor), Megan Connolly (Editor/IT), Emily Bell, Gracie Roberts, Margaret Zimmerman and Tamey Williams. The first newsletter is being published electronically via email and posted on our website. We plan to also print and USPS mail future newsletters which will also contain advertisements for local businesses owned by HOA residents.


I am also pleased to announce that we have increased the number of volunteers for all of our committees since the start of 2022. This shows that we have a vibrant community that values working together to better our HOA by hosting social events and contributing to amenities repairs; just to name a few. With this, I invite you all to think about joining one, or more, of our committees which are: Social, Landscape, Amenities and Information Technology.


Finally, I am very happy with the new website for our community thanks to the efforts of the Information Technology committee. A special thank you to Megan Connolly who stepped up and led the effort to design and implement the new look and feel.


Now, sit back, relax and enjoy reading this Quarterly Summer Newsletter

Please bring a dessert to share (preferably dropped off Friday night or Saturday morning), and your own chairs as there will be limited seating.

Heating up! How to Care for Your Lawn This Summer

by Sarah Brumit


With the temperatures soaring and not much rain in sight, here are some tips for keeping your grass thriving this summer.

  • Grass will benefit from infrequent but deep watering on permitted days. Pflugerville is currently under Stage 2 watering restrictions. Hand watering can be done at any time, but if using a sprinkler or irrigation system, your watering day is as follows, before 10am and after 7pm only:

  • Addresses ending in an even number: Thursday & Sunday

  • Addresses ending in an odd number: Wednesday & Saturday

  • Adjust your mower blade to leave your grass taller, increasing the amount of shade to your soil. Sharpen your mower blade after approximately 10 hours of mowing for the healthiest blades of grass.

  • Try leaving your clippings on the lawn instead of bagging them.

  • Ensure that you do not leave toys, inflatables, litter, furniture, etc on the grass for long periods of time.

Committee Corner


Updates on Pool & Playscape


The playscape is currently closed as we await new mulch. The community’s help will be needed to spread the mulch and spruce up the playground, so please stay tuned for updates.


Currently the pool is open, but you will notice rust on the plaster caused by work done on the water tower. The city is aware of this issue and actively working with the contractor who refurbished the water tower on a remediation plan. The pool is being treated as best as it can given the amount of rust which is wreaking havoc with the chemical balance. It is also being cleaned as part of our normal pool service and is safe to swim. Unfortunately, due to the heavy rust in the pool, there may be times when the pool will need to be closed so that the chemical balance can be reestablished.


The tennis court recently got a brand new tennis net installed. Special thanks to the amenities committee and especially Chloe Hall who led the effort.


If you notice anything that needs attention around the amenities please send an email to propertymanager@theclubatwellspoint.org.


 

Keeping our Amenities Clean


Pool

  • We urge all residents to please pick up after themselves, especially trash (bottles, wrappers etc..) before departing the pool. On more than one occasion the Amenities committee has found plastic bottles and trash left on tables and the deck which made their way into the pool and clogged skimmers!

  • Please return tables and chairs to their original location if you, and your guests, decided to move them to accommodate your visit.

Fitness Center

  • We ask all users of the fitness center to wipe down all the equipment they have used during their workout and return it to its original location. This is not only basic sanitation but will also help slow down the spread of germs.

Common Grounds

  • Please help us keep our common grounds clean by picking up trash and placing it in the silver garbage cans around the property.


 

Deed Restrictions and Reminders


Home Improvements:

Friendly reminder that all improvements to the exterior of your home need to be approved by submitting an application to the Architectural Committee. More information can be found on our website or by emailing ac@theclubatwellspoint.org.


Trash Cans:

Remember to stow away your trash/recycle can within 24 hours from the end of the trash/recycle pickup day.


Wooden Fences:

Please keep your wooden property fences in good condition by replacing any rotting or deteriorated sections. Remember property owners sharing a common fence are equally responsible for the costs of the maintenance, or replacement, of the fence. Please work with your neighbors to arrive at an agreeable solution.


Landscape:

Please cut your lawn on a regular basis in addition to trimming trees and shrubs. Maintain a weed free landscape by treating your lawn and applying a weed barrier and mulch to the base of trees and shrubs.


 

Join a committee!

Our HOA is volunteer run by neighbors like you. Please consider making a difference in the neighborhood by volunteering on a committee. If you can help, please contact board@theclubatwellspoint.org stating which committee you would like to join. The committee chair will reach out to you so that the next steps can be taken.
