November 2014 Newsletter

For the PDF version of the newsletter, please click here to save or print: Community Newsletter Nov 2014

To All of Our Neighbors:

We hope everyone had a wonderfully scary Halloween and the turnout was great. We had a great response to National Night Out with a lot of neighbors coming out and meeting each other. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow us to have the community Garage Sale, but we look forward to the spring Garage Sale with much anticipation. The Pet Chip and Treat was a success and will help us keep our pets safe and brought back home if they happen to escape. Now we look to the future and the Holiday season.

We have been working hard to be more active in our communication with the neighborhood. As you may have seen, we have installed marquee signs at each of the entrances where meeting dates and special events will be posted. Please keep an eye out for these. Meetings posted are open to all, not just active committee members. If you are interested in what a committee is doing or would like to join the committee, please attend. Neighbors are working hard to get Social Committee restarted and would love as much help as possible. This newsletter should be received by all residents in the neighborhood, not just homeowners, so if you know a neighbor who has not received a newsletter, please have them contact the Communications Committee at waterleafcommunication@gmail.com

Lastly as we enjoy family during this holiday season, please remember we will have more visitors in the community. We need to be more diligent when driving in the neighborhood for the children and slower drivers enjoying lights or who are lost. Please be careful out there.

Happy Thanksgiving and make sure you follow ALL safety precautions when frying those turkeys!

Burglary Prevention – Protect Your Home and Vehicle

There have been many reports recently of neighbors having their vehicles, homes, and garages burglarized. In many cases, the home/vehicle was inadvertently left unlocked. Unfortunately, as the Holidays approach, theft will increase as thieves are looking for any and every opportunity.

Lock, Take, HideHere are some tips from Kyle Police Department to protect yourself from burglary:

  • Keep your house locked – Doors & Windows! Preferably dead bolt locks. Be sure your address is visible so the police can find you quickly.
  • Keep your Cars locked. Don’t leave items visible from windows. Computers, DVD players, cameras, purses etc.
  • Engrave Drivers license numbers on all valuables. Better yet, copy down serial numbers on computers, TV’s, Video cameras etc. If you have no serial numbers the police have no way to enter stolen items into the TCIC/NCIC system.
  • Call the police if you see something suspicious in your neighborhood. No call to the police is unimportant. Don’t think you are being overly cautious. Call us at (512) 268-3232 to make sure, or in the event of an emergency, call 911.
  • Remember the police cannot help if they don’t know. Don’t be afraid to call. You are the eyes and ears of the police. The police cannot do it alone.
  • Take note of cars or trucks and copy down license plate numbers and vehicle descriptions as well as descriptions of individuals. What type and color of shirt, coat, pants, race, height etc. Call Kyle Police Department at (512) 268-3232.

To All of Our Neighbors:

The summer season is officially in full swing, and we now have our lifeguards working full time. We would like to ask that everyone review the pool rules listed in last month’s newsletter, or on our website waterleaffalls.com. We would like to remind everyone that the pool is CLOSED EVERY MONDAY except holidays that fall on Mondays with no other exceptions. We use this day to allow our pool company to come in and maintain the pool in order to help it recover from the heavy use on the weekends. Secondly, we want everyone to keep in mind that the lifeguards are there to ensure the safety of everyone enjoying the pool. We have entrusted them with not only our lives, but the live of our friends and family who utilize the pool. Please show them respect as they are merely doing their job to keep everyone safe and preserve life. Please remember that it is still your responsibility to watch your children at all times.

We would also like to invite everyone to come out and support all of our committees in all that they do. Our committees are in need of volunteers and would love to have help from all of you. And don’t forget to enjoy all of the events, and block parties to meet your neighbors and raise awareness for the safety of our neighborhood, as each every one of us is responsible for what goes on in our community. Please check the calendar in this newsletter, or on our website for all of the events and meetings we’ll be having in the future.

Have fun, enjoy your summer, and be safe!

Kyle Police Department Vacation Watch Program

Summer is in full swing and so are plans for summer vacations and getaways. If you will be out-of-town for an extended amount of time, you can notify the Kyle Policy Department and they will check on your residence or business for up to ten consecutive days while you are away. If you will be gone longer than that, you can fill out a subsequent request. Simply fill out a Vacation Watch Form which can be found at: www.cityofkyle.com/police/vacation-watch-program

Some tips from KPD:

  • Have an alarm installed even if you choose not to have it monitored. Burglars will not stay if an alarm is going off.
  • Stop all deliveries or arrange for a trusted neighbor to pick up your mail, newspapers, and packages.
  • Have a neighbor place garbage cans at the curb on your normal pickup day and return them after the garbage pickup is made.
  • Plug in timers to turn lights and a radio (talk show) or television, on and off, at the appropriate times. Have several throughout the house.
  • Turn the bell or ringer on your telephone down low. If a burglar is around, he/she won’t be alerted to your absence by a ringing telephone.
  • Let your neighbors know when you will be gone. Have them call the police if there is any suspicious activity.
  • Ask a neighbor to occasionally park in your driveway.

Come meet your neighbors!! We had such a great time at the last BBQ we’ve decided to continue these every other month. Please bring your families item to grill (Barbecue pits will be provided), beverages and a dish to pass that will serve 8. Also please bring your picnic gear, i.e. chairs, blankets, etc. We have once again invited the Kyle Police and Fire Departments to join us!

Neighborhood Watch had a great meeting this past month and we send a big thank you to Mike Leas of Breadcrumbs ID and Texas DPS. They informed us on the topic of missing children and adults, and the many ways communication is sent out for anyone missing. We learned a lot of what goes on behind the scenes and what we need to do to help law enforcement find a missing person.

There is no Police Blotter this month, as it was not received from KPD.

Happy 4th of July Waterleaf! Please celebrate safely and keep in mind that fireworks are not allowed in the City of Kyle. Let’s try and be respectful of each other. Many have babies and children sleeping and pets who are very frightened by fireworks. Let the professionals do this entertaining for us!

The following weeks from now through October we will be working on National Night Out. If anyone is interested in volunteering we need your help! Please email us and we will let you know when we get together! Thank you! waterleafneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com
