To All of Our Neighbors,

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer and is drying out from the much needed, if not a little more than needed, rain. It was very heartwarming to see our neighbors come together to aide those in need in Wimberley, San Marcos, and Martindale. We certainly are proud to have a number of heroes that live here in our community.

As we celebrate our National Independence Day, we look forward to fun, good food, sun, and nighttime extravaganzas with our family and friends. The City of Kyle will be putting on a Fireworks show on Saturday, July 4th at sundown at the Performing Arts Center. Please be mindful our neighborhood children and pets who are sensitive to loud noises during your celebrations and remember fireworks are NOT ALLOWED in Kyle City Limits.

The Neighborhood Watch and Social committees are currently planning the annual 4th of July parade. Come join your neighbors and walk from the city park to our community park. Those committees are also looking for volunteers to hold block party BBQ’s in their driveway. Feel free to contact them if you are interested and join your neighbors in a fun get together.

The governing documents task force is working hard to draft proposed changes to our By-laws that need to be updated. Now that KB Homes no longer has positions on the HOA board, and soon will no longer be members of the HOA itself, it is imperative for us to help create the vision of our community moving forward. The task force will then turn its’ efforts to the DCCRs. If you have any suggestions, ideas, concerns, or comments please contact the Task Force.

This month will be the more informal Core meeting to discuss issues and concerns regarding the needs of our committees and Task Force. Please join us on Thursday, July 2nd. It takes all of us to make a community great.

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

Important Reminders About Your Pets

Leash Laws

Please remember the City of Kyle does have a leash law requiring dogs to be kept on a leash at all times. (Art II, Sec 5-38) This law applies in Waterleaf when you are walking your dog around the neighborhood.Keep in mind that dogs should also remain on a leash in the easement areas behind the park and homes.

Register Your Pet with City of Kyle

Animals are required to be registered with the City of Kyle. Visit the Animal Control website at cityofkyle.com/police/animal-control to obtain a registration form. Please note, proof of vaccination is required.

HOA Restrictions

Section 6.7 (h) of our DCCRs addresses the HOA rules regarding pets. Residents cannot have more than 4 pets. Pets must be restrained or confined to the homeowner’s rear yard within a secure fenced area or within the house. It is the pet owner’s responsibility to keep the lot clean and free of pet debris or odor noxious to adjourning lots. All animals must be properly registered and tagged for identification in accordance with local city ordinances.

Secure Animals in Your Backyard

Take a moment to make sure your backyard is secure and that your pet cannot get out of the yard. Repair fences promptly to maintain the safety of your pet and other neighbors.

Clean Up After Your Pet

Please do not allow your pet to defecate in public areas or in the yard of a fellow neighbor. Carry a plastic bag with you on your walks and clean up after your pet. Pet feces can make other pets and young children sick, so please be mindful of others!

Collars and Nametags

Make sure your pet has a collar with a nametag and your contact information. This helps ensure your pet is returned to you should they get out of the yard. You can also email a photo of your pet and your contact information to be added to our pet database to waterleafpets@gmail.com

 

Summer Safety for Your Pets

Never Leave Pets in a Parked Car

On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, the temperature inside a car with the windows open slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes, & 120 degrees after 30 minutes. With our Texas summer, these temps increase drastically.

Provide Ample Shade and Water

Anytime your pet is outside, make sure he or she has protection from heat and plenty of fresh, cold water. Tree shades and tarps are ideal since they don’t obstruct air flow.

Limit Exercise on Hot Days

Adjust intensity and duration of exercise according to the temperature. On very hot days, consider limiting exercise to early morning or early evening hours. Asphalt can get very hot and can burn your pet’s paws, so walk them on grass when possible. And always carry water to keep your pet from dehydrating.

Kyle Police Department Vacation Watch Program

Summer is here which means many are planning vacations. 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.

Snake Safety Tips

It’s snake season again. A few things to remember to help avoid snake bites. Although non-venomous snakes are actually beneficial (albeit unnerving) to have in your yard the venomous variety are the ones you should be most concerned with. The best way to avoid encountering a snake is to remove the things around your yard that could make it a haven for them. There are some steps you can take to remove food and shelter for them. Get rid of any rock piles, brush piles and mulch piles, keep your grass well-mowed and trimmed. In addition eliminate piles of lumber, debris, firewood, tin and plastic.

In the event of bite:

• Keep the victim as calm as possible. Keep yourself calm as well.

• Know and treat for any symptoms of shock – elevate feet, loosen clothing, etc. Wash the bite area with disinfectant soap.

• Remove constricting clothing or jewelry in the bite area. Prevent movement of the bitten extremity. Splint it, if necessary.

• Seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Citywide Fire Ant Treatment

A local Boy Scout group is organizing a city wide fire ant baiting to occur this Fall. Community wide baiting has been proven to provide the greatest amount of control and the longest reprieve from harmful fire ants. More details coming soon.

Social Committee Update

There is no meeting for the month of July.

Our Movie in the park went over well, those that attended said they really enjoyed it. We had a minor issue with popcorn but we know how to avoid that next time! We saw lots of new faces and that’s always great. Some residents mentioned not knowing about the event, so if you are coming to an event mention it to your neighbors, ask them to join us. These events are getting better and better, we want everyone in Waterleaf to enjoy them.

The company we used for the screen rental is owned by a local central Texas veteran and they were really a pleasure to work with. Check out their website to see everything they offer at freedompartyrentals.com

We would love more volunteers in the neighborhood. We have over 900 homes and only the same few people attending meetings and planning events on a regular basis. Fresh faces bring fresh ideas and new ways to bring the community together!

Contact us at waterleafsocial@gmail.com if you are interested in helping or have ideas.

June 2014 Newsletter

The PDF version of this month’s newsletter can be downloaded here: WLF June 2014 Newsletter

To All of Our Neighbors,

As we look forward to the beginning of summer, continued warm weather, backyard grilling and the outdoors, please take a moment to say hello to your neighbors. We have had a bit of a rocky start to the pool season, but we think the people who have been able to brave the cold water have enjoyed the pool and all of our amenities in the park area. The younger, more agile ones appear to be having a good time at the basketball court.

We look forward to meeting several of you at the neighborhood watch block parties that will be scheduled throughout the community. We will be a neighborhood of 1,000 homes, all of which are members of neighborhood watch, please keep an eye out to make sure everyone and everything is safe and sound. If you would like to do more for neighborhood watch and/or any other committee, please check out the calendar of events for meeting dates and times. All committees could use help in some way.

For those of you asking about Board Meetings, once we hear from the builder members of the Board, we will schedule a meeting date and time. We will get the word out as best we can through the website. If you have not signed up, we encourage you to do so. This is the best way for us to inform everyone in the neighborhood.

Have a great Summer,
David and Tracy

Reminder: Trash Cans to Remain Hidden

Violation Notices & Fines will resume this month

Remember that the board voted to resume enforcing our current DCCRS which state that trash cans must be hidden from street view. Violation notices and fines will resume starting June 1, 2014. If someone has a suggestion to cover the trash cans and still follow DCCRs please contact us.

“DCCR 6.7 Uses Specificallv Prohibited (i) No Lot or other area of the Property shall be used as a dumping ground for rubbish or accumulation of unsightly materials of any kind, including without limitation, broken or rusty equipment, disassembled or inoperative cars and discarded appliances and furniture. Trash, garbage or other waste shall be kept in sanitary containers and concealed from public view except on designated trash collection days. All containers for the storage or other disposal of such material shall be kept in clean and sanitary condition. Materials incident to construction of improvements may only be stored on Lots during construction of the improvement thereon.”

 

CPR & First Aid Training

There has been an increased interest in CPR and First Aid training and certification. We have begun to contact programs about providing a training specifically for Waterleaf residents. In order to bring one of these programs to Waterleaf, we need to have a definite head count to minimize costs for everyone. Once we have established an interest, we will move forward with planning dates and times for training. It would likely be on a weekend due to the time required for the class.

If you would be interested in attending, please e-mail the Communication Committee at waterleafcommunication@gmail.com with the subject: “CPR and First Aid Training.” Please provide your name, e-mail and number of people who would attend (including yourself). We will e-mail you to let you know if/when a class is scheduled. Be assured that the provider we choose will be a certified trainer with the American Heart Association.

Caution! Kids at Play

caution_KIDS_AT_PLAY_1024x1024The last day of school for Hays CISD is Friday, June 6th. That means the kids will be playing outside, visiting the pool and parks around the neighborhood.

Here are some tips to keep kids safe this summer:

Pool Safety: Visit Colin’s Hope for drowning prevention tips and to review water safety with your child.

Prevent Sunburn: Wear Sunscreen when playing outside or swimming

Prevent Bites & Stings: Wear Insect repellant when outdoors

Playground safety: Check playground before letting kids play for hot surfaces and unsafe areas. Make sure kids do not have clothing so loose that it can catch on equipment. Also encourage closed-toe shoes over flip flops to protect feet.

Bike Safety: Always wear a helmet when bike riding.

Stay Cool: Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can be very serious for children. Make sure kids come in for breaks and drink plenty of water. Signs of heat exhaustion include feeling thirsty, fatigue, cramps (legs or abdominal). Signs of heatstroke include dizziness, trouble breathing, headaches, rapid heartbeat, nausea, vomiting and changes in blood pressure.

Drivers, please use extra caution while driving. Slow down when you are driving through the neighborhood and come to a complete stop at stop signs. Be mindful of children playing and treat their safety as if it were your own child. Stay safe and have fun!

He updated us on the local crimes in Kyle and our neighborhood, future department plans which include a few new exciting programs for citizens, ideas for building the Neighborhood Watch, and a question answer chat with the neighbors present. Also mentioned, with summer comes an increase of crime. Keep cars, garages, windows and doors locked! Leave porch lights on every evening. Do not be an easy target for theft. The Department is researching Nextdoor.com, the app that is the buzz around the neighborhood and so far they are fans!

Officer Plant noted that calls from our neighborhood regarding suspicious people and/or vehicles are up for the last few months and for us to continue to call in whatever we see that looks out of place. As a reminder the non emergency number is (512) 268-3232 and of course for emergency 911.

We had a few new residents attend which was great to see and talked about our future plans. We will continue having monthly meetings with guest speakers on different topics.

Four grills, hamburgers and hotdogs, neighbors meeting neighbors, Grammy’s ice cream, kids and the Kyle Fire Department made for a great night at Neighborhood Watch’s first BBQ Pot Luck! A special thanks to Natalie Freeman for her donation of soda to the BBQ. We had a lot of fun and kudos to Lt. Mike and his crew from KFD for spending the evening with us. The kids loved getting inside the shiny red fire truck/rescue unit and seeing all the equipment and how it is all used. They even got to put on the fire fighting protective wear, so fun! We also had a visit from KPD but was cut short due to a call.

We will do this again in another part of the neighborhood soon, so watch for details!
