From the General Manager
The summer season is in full swing at StillWaters and it is going to be a great summer. There were more people enjoying StillWaters during the long Memorial Day weekend than I have seen in the past five years. Make sure you plan to spend your summer at StillWaters.
Keith and Debbie Hiett, the new owners of the golf course had a very successful open house and membership drive. They are very excited about the large number of people who have purchased a new golf course membership. In this newsletter is a list of the different memberships that are available and a membership application to complete and return to the golf course. Make sure you visit the StillWaters golf course and talk with the new owners about the exciting changes they have planned.
The 2015 roads project has started and there may be a few traffic delays. Thank you for your patience while we make these repairs to our roads. The paving company is in the patching phase of the project. All patches will be completed first, then the roads will be paved and most of the patches will be covered by new asphalt. The drainage work will start the first of June and will be completed about the same time the paving is finished. The Roads Committee has a long list of items for this year’s roads project and provided there are no hidden surprise cost overruns, all should be completed as planned.
On Saturday, July 4th, the SWRA Board of Directors is sponsoring a family fun festival at Moonbrook Park. The festival starts at 11am and will end at 6pm. The Neighborhood Council will be selling hamburgers, hotdogs, drinks and other goodies. There are two bands scheduled to appear; Route 66 will play from 12noon to 3pm and Hwy 280 will play from 3pm to 6pm. Bounce houses and water slides are planned for the kids. The StillWaters Volunteer Fire and Rescue will have fire truck rides from 12noon to 3pm. Make sure you bring a lawn chair or blanket so you can enjoy the whole day at the park.
Recently SWRA had to tow a couple of trailers that were left parked on the side of a roadway or in a cul-de-sac. This cost the owners $250 each for the towing bill and a considerable inconvenience waiting until Monday to retrieve their trailers. The StillWaters covenants require all trailers to be stored in a garage or carport. Any trailer left parked on a roadway, at the end of a road, or on any common area will be towed immediately without warning. There are several reasonably priced storage facilities located within a couple of miles of StillWaters that can accommodate trailers of all kinds.
Summer means a larger number of people walking, jogging, and riding bikes in our community. The speed limit on most of our roads is 25mph, only Moonbrook Drive and StillWaters Drive have a higher speed limit of 35mph. Please slow down, drive carefully, and watch out for the other person.
Have a great summer at StillWaters. Enjoy the golf, lake, family and good friends. We have so much to offer why would you want to live anywhere else.
