To All of Our Neighbors:

We hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day. The Parade was very well attended and fun to walk. We had Kyle PD, Kyle animal control, kids on bikes, residents walking, a local Girl Scout troop, dogs and the Kyle fire department. It was really nice to see neighbors cheering on the sidelines as well. Thank you Natalie Freeman for the popsicles. They really helped everyone cool off afterwards. We hope everyone survived the festivities of some in the neighborhood during the nighttime hours.

Now that the rain has stopped, please remember we are still in a drought despite the rain. The County Line Special Utility District currently has stage 1 water rationing in effect. Outside watering with a sprinkler between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm is strictly prohibited. Let’s help keep water supply sources for future neighbors.

The last week of August is either a really wonderful time in the neighborhood or the worst time, depending on your point of view, as it includes the first day of school! Hays CISD starts the school year on Monday, August 24th. Until then, please be mindful of all the little ones enjoying their summer off!

The HOA on the other hand will be relatively quiet. Due to the heat and everyone finishing their summer plans and preparing for that day at the end of August, there will be no HOA sponsored events. A formal Board meeting will be held though at the park pavilion on Thursday, August 6th at 6:30 pm, as well as, a few committee meetings. Please make time to come out and be a part of making this community a great place to live. The agenda for the board meeting will be posted on the http://www.waterleaffalls.com website by Thursday, July 30.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer!

David, Tracy, Jason, Darla, and Megan

Neighborhood Traffic Safety

As our neighborhood continues to grow, so does the amount of traffic coming into and exiting our neighborhood. As a result, there is also an increased concern about safety in our community. An alarming number vehicles are speeding through the neighborhood and failing to come to a complete stop at Stop signs. These actions are incredibly dangerous and put the lives of our neighbors and children at risk.

Some reminders:

* The Speed limit in Waterleaf Falls is posted at 30 mph. Please be mindful of the posted limits and do not speed through our community. Saving a few seconds is not worth the life of your neighbors.

* Come to a complete stop at Stop signs. Failure to do so could result in a ticket and fine from the Kyle Police Department.

* Do not block sidewalks. The safest place to walk is the sidewalk, when you park blocking the sidewalks, neighbors are forced into the street and have a greater chance of being hit by a car. Make sure your vehicle is completely in the driveway. Kyle Police has been in the neighborhood issuing citations for this violation.

* Follow all traffic rules to maintain safety in our neighborhood.

Expansion of FM 150

FM 150 will soon be receiving some much needed improvements. According to the Hays County Government website:

The FM 150 Center Turn Lane project will widen the roadway to accommodate a 12’ wide center turn lane and 5’ shoulders throughout most of the project from Lox Drive to SH 21, a distance of 2.7 miles.

The project will also include extensions of cross culverts, safety improvements of existing side slopes, new signage and pavement markings, and will improve the ride quality of the roadway with cross slope corrections and the addition of a new pavement surface. The FM 150 Center Turn Lane project is an element of the County’s Partnership Program with the Texas Department of Transportation.

Visit www.co.hays.tx.us and look in the “News” tab for additional information.

 

Important Updates from July’s Neighborhood Watch Meeting

July’s monthly meeting was a big success. There were lots of new faces and community involvement! Chief Barnett, Officer James Plant from KPD, and Officer Briana Brecher from Kyle Animal Control were our guest speakers. A lot of information was shared. Here are some important reminders from KPD and Animal Control.

Updates from Kyle Police Department

Chief Barnett and Officer Plant discussed current events and incidents of the neighborhood and City of Kyle. The Call Report is listed on the “Crime Blotter” which lists calls from May and June.

Our speakers’ discussions included:

• Continue to call and report any suspicious activity. Waterleaf Falls residents are calling in and making reports, and KPD is pleased. They drive through the neighborhood as often as possible, and will continue. However, they need our help in watching when they are not here.

• Lock your cars, garages, gates, doors, and windows. Don’t make it easy for “crimes of opportunity” to occur. Keep your garage doors closed, even during daylight, if you are not in the direct vicinity.

• Lights, Light, Lights! Criminals do not want to be seen. Be sure your outdoor lights are on at night. Keep landscaping trimmed, as not to provide a hiding spot. And, add locks to your gates.

• Know your neighbors and surroundings. Know who is supposed to be here and who is not. Call and report the “not supposed to be here individuals”!

• There is a Citizen on Patrol class starting in August. Please contact Officer Plant for further details and sign up. This program gives the Kyle Citizen a detailed, behind the scenes look at the Kyle Police Department. Classes are held once a week for a couple of months.

 

Police Blotter

PoliceBlotterMayJun15

 

Updates from Kyle Animal Control

Officer Brecher would like to remind everyone:

• ALL cats and dogs MUST be registered with the City of Kyle yearly. The form can be found online at http://www.CityofKyle.com/forms, beside Animal Control. At this time, the annual registration fee per pet is $10.50 for Unaltered and $5.25 for Altered.

• ALL dogs must remain on a leash when out of their back yard. And yes, this means in your front yard too, if not fenced/secured. The only place they can be unleashed is in a fenced/secured yard.

• You must remove any feces deposits when outside of your yard. Further, while in or on any City of Kyle Parks, Trails, or Open Spaces, you must carry a device to remove any deposits.

• ALL bites and scratches must be reported to Animal Control. Rabies vaccine will be verified among other things.

• Report ALL wandering dogs, as well as dogs being held if found, to Animal Control. This will help get pets home should the owners call inquiring about their pet.

• Walk your yard checking for spots your dogs can escape thru and make repairs immediately. Keep your gates locked.

Officer Brecher can be reached at (512) 268-3232.

Neighborhood Watch

Hello Neighbors!

Neighborhood Watch had a very busy and exciting July. And moving forward through the year, we will continue the pace!

The 4th of July parade was enjoyed by many. Thank you to the Kyle Fire Department and Kyle Animal Control for joining us. There was plenty of red, white, and blue to celebrate as well as, popsicles at the park for a cool treat!

Congratulations go to 241 Violet – Waterleaf Fall’s 4th of July Stars and Stripes Yard Decoration winner! Great job!!

July’s monthly meeting was a big success. There were lots of new faces and community involvement! Chief Barnett, Officer James Plant from KPD, and Officer Briana Brecher from Kyle Animal Control were our guest speakers. A lot of information was shared.

Current News:

Neighborhood Watch has taken on the role, this past year, to get neighbors out to meet each other. The best we can do is look out for each other. And, the best way to do that is to know one another! It is especially important on your own street/block. As said above, know who is supposed to be here and who is not!

Patrolling –Neighborhood Watch does not have an organized patrol group and has not for over a year. Again, residents are encouraged to watch while walking and driving through the neighborhood as well as from your yard/house. Call KPD and report anything suspicious. The non-emergency number is (512) 268-3232. And, in the event of an emergency, dial 911. The group has worked with KPD in developing a patrol program with suggestions and rules, but we have not yet implemented it. Also, Facebook is a great tool to report information; however, please contact KPD first.

Please remember, and this is per KPD, DO NOT CONFRONT, let the police department handle the situation. There are many reasons for this – one being, for your own protection. Save the number on your phone, and call with a detailed description of the situation. Remember – If you see something, say something!

September fun coming!

KPD vs KFD Softball Tournament
Waterleaf Falls NW Scavenger Hunt
National Night Out

SaveDateCarnival_Color

National Night Out is a community-policing awareness-raising event in the United States, held the first Tuesday in October, Texas wide. natw.org At this time, we are planning to hold it Tuesday, October 6th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the HOA Park. This year’s theme is Waterleaf Fall’s Old Time Carnival. We did get about ten (10) volunteers at last month’s meeting, which is awesome! However, we need more!!

The evening of the NNO event, we will need help with set up/clean up, food servers, and people to run carnival games. We’re also looking for someone who would like to be the “host.” This person will be on microphone, making announcements, and entertaining the crowd. And we need clowns! Happy, friendly clowns, who’s in? We also need game builders and crafters. These volunteers will work ahead of time building our games, which could include woodwork and painting. Perfect for our stay at home craft moms to do, or a fun family activity! We need your help in whatever capacity you can give!!

We gained a couple more Block Captains, keep the list going and volunteer!!

Finally, Neighborhood Watch is currently working on a Facebook page for our volunteers and community involvement. But, it’s not quite ready to launch yet. Our next Neighborhood Watch meeting is September 17, 2015 @ 7:00 at the HOA Pavilion. Please mark your calendars and bring a friend.

Please email us, if you are interested in helping or getting involved: Waterleafneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com

Thank you from your Neighborhood Watch Chairs.
Michele, Jeff, and Nola

SAFETY UPDATE: Please Attend the Kyle City Council Meeting – Tuesday, July 21, 2015 7:00PM

Residents:

We are asking for resident support at the upcoming Kyle City Council Meeting held at Kyle City Hall Council Chambers located at 100 W. Center Street, as our topic has been added to the agenda. Our HOA Board has been in contact with the City Council regarding safety concerns with excessive speeding and careless drivers in our community. At the June Board Meeting there was discussion of the possibility of adding more stop signs, especially on the main entry points: Waterleaf Boulevard, New Bridge Drive, and New Country Road. There is an understanding that increased police presence may not be a viable option, but concerned residents feel that a traffic study should be conducted to determine the effectiveness of stop signs and/or speed humps. The Board understands that speed bumps would impede emergency vehicles and that is not our desired result. The Board also realizes that there may be a cost associated with installation of speed humps and the Board would be open to considering this cost, if it proves to be a possible solution. The Board is also open to any and all suggestions to help make Waterleaf Falls a happy and safe community.

Megan Honick, Board Treasurer will be holding a planning meeting for residents who wish to come out and voice concerns. Please come to the Park Pavilion on Sunday, July 19th at 6pm, so we can brainstorm our plan to fit our material into the allotted time at the City Council Meeting.

Regards,

Communication Committee

To All of Our Neighbors:

With Spring’s arrival came the much needed rain. It was wonderful to see the beautiful yards that many of our residents have taken so much time, energy, and pride in that helps make our little community beautiful. So much so, that it has been difficult to figure out who to nominate for the Yard of the Month. We invite everyone to nominate your own yard, a neighbor’s, or even a house you just happened to drive by that makes you think, “Wow, that yard looks great.” Send all of your nominations to waterleafyardofthemonth@gmail.com . By doing so, we think you being a part of the decisions that are made will help bring a sense of community here in Waterleaf Falls.

Another way you can help make decisions for Waterleaf Falls is by participating in our Governing Documents Review Task Force. As our time with KB Homes nears an end, it is time that we take a close look at some of the needed changes and updates to our Governing Documents. We invite you to review our current bylaws and DCCRs and contact the Task Force at waterleafbylaws@gmail.com with changes you feel are important to help keep the integrity of this community.

Also, don’t forget that school will be coming to a close during the first week of June. This means we will have children running around the neighborhood, riding their bicycles, skateboarding, and families walking to the swimming pool. We ask that you help protect our children and neighbors by being an attentive driver, obeying the speed limit and stopping at stop signs. Please help us keep all of our children and neighbors safe this summer.

As always, keep an eye on our calendar here in the newsletter for all of the great events happening around our neighborhood. We also hope you have a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you cooling off at the pool!

David, Tracy, Jason, Darla, and Megan
Your Resident Board Members

Keep our Neighborhood Safe!

Hays CISD’s last day of school is Wednesday, June 3rd which means many neighborhood children will be out enjoying their summer break. Each of us is responsible for the safety of ourselves and our neighbors.

Drivers

Obey all traffic laws
Be sure to come to a complete stop at stop signs and do not speed. The speed limit here is 30 MPH.

Watch for children
Keep an eye out for children playing outside. Watch out for bikes, balls, skateboards and other toys that may fly into the road.

No distracted driving
Kyle does not have a hands-free ordinance, but we should all be sure to put the phone down when driving for our safety and the safety of others.

 

Pedestrians  

Be street smart
Look both ways before crossing the street. Move out of the way quickly when vehicles are approaching.

Know where your children are
Make sure you and your kids have a system in place for checking in or be sure to stay close for supervision.

Use common courtesy
Be careful when outside not to disrupt neighbors’ lawns or lawn decor. Pick up after yourself and your pets.

Stay hydrated
Texas summers are HOT. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.

 

Thank you!

PawsShelterandHumaneSocietySmallWe extend a huge thanks to PAWS of Central Texas right here in Kyle for their help and support during our pet microchipping event last month. It was a great success and we were able to help many neighbors ensure that they will be reunited with their pets in the event they are lost. Thank you to all of the individuals who volunteered their time to help with this event as well.

As a reminder, our Waterleaf Pet volunteers do keep a database of pet photos and owner contact information as another way to help pets get back home. If you would like to be added, email a photo of your pet and your contact information to waterleafpets@gmail.com

Kyle Police Department Vacation Watch Program

Summer is here which means many are planning vacation(s). Unfortunately, thieves will be on the lookout for homes that appear vacant for a period of time. If you are planning to be out-of-town for an extended amount of time, in addition to asking a neighbor you trust to keep an eye on your house, you can notify the Kyle Police 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: cityofkyle.com/police/vacation-watch-program

Some safety 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.
  • 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.

Neighborhood Watch

Hello Neighbors!

Neighborhood Watch held its first BBQ of the summer this past month. Presentations were given on crime trends in Kyle and the central Texas area comparing Kyle’s stats to the central area. Tips were given on how to safeguard both our homes and ourselves. An overall agenda was given on the purpose of NW and what the future plans are. Thank you to Alex Martinez, and Rick and Nola Plumb who volunteered to help from set up to clean up and everything in between!

The Neighborhood Watch Committee is looking for a volunteer to join the team. Please let us know if you are interested! Email us at waterleafneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com

Block Captains

A call out for Block Captains was given and we received 8 volunteers. Note that those volunteering on the longer roads are only responsible for about 10 – 12 homes on their streets. Continue to volunteer if you live on those please. Take the time to meet your Captain if they are on your street and remember with the number of homes we have here, we need many more. Please volunteer, we need YOU!
