Scouts Refurbish Gaga Pit For Reopening

The Gaga Pit at the Phase III Playground is now dressed up and ready to play. Over the weekend of May 30, Scouts, and helpers, gave back to the Watters Crossing community by cleaning up and installing five tons of sand at the popular site.

Scouts from Pack 708: Luke Glotzbach and Marco Garcia. From Troop 1914: Trent Nieghbour

Watters Crossing benefits continuously from various scouting efforts. The Gaga Pit itself is an Eagle Scout project from previous years. Many thanks to the scouts and their helpers.

COVID-19 Update Clubhouse Remains Closed Pool to Open June 13 (Updated 7/01/2020)

Your WCHOA regrets to announce that due to a variety of critical factors, including procedural, legal, and economic factors, a difficult decision has been made for the Clubhouse to remain CLOSED until further notice. Pursuant to executive orders by the Governor, and guidance offered by local authorities, legal counsel and insurance providers, severe restrictions have been imposed, and under the terms and guidelines of our liability insurance, opening of select community amenities during the current ongoing pandemic is not an option. In addition to regulatory mandates, and liability exposure for the WCHOA, it is simply not financially feasible within the constraints of our current budget. Just a few of the considerations going into this decision include required additional sanitization requirements, as well as the necessity to hire the services of a monitor to enforce occupancy limits, social distancing, and other unaffordable precautionary health measures. During this operational interruption, the expense of routine community amenity maintenance must continue along with maintenance on all other Association assets. The WCHOA Board will not entertain requests to refund or interrupt dues payments. The WCHOA Board will continue to monitor all issues contributing to this decision and communicate any updates to the Association members as soon as possible.

CLOSED:
The Clubhouse remains closed at this time. All deposits for reservations for the month of July will be refunded.

OPEN:
The Tennis Court is open for residents only. No more than four residents on the court at one time. The Basketball Court is open for no more than four resident players. Playgrounds are open

OPEN:
The Phase II / Newport Drive Pool is open for residents only. Normal days and times apply, but at 50% capacity and COVID-19 rules in effect. However, please review the COVID-19 Pool Rules and Guidelines prior to going to the pool. For the safety of everyone, we ask for all residents using to the pool to adhere to the Rules and Guidelines. Failure to adhere can result in loss of pool privilege. READ HERE for the COVID-19 guidelines and rules for using the Watters Crossing Pool.

POOL ACCESS:
Pool cards are required to access the Watters Crossing Pool. If you have lost or have problems with your card, please email poolaccess@watterscrossing.com Please do NOT open the pool gate for anyone without a card or someone whose card “does not work”. Pool cards are turned off for various reasons.

All violations of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions of Watters Crossing are cited and managed by NMI Management. Violations are no longer handled by the ACC volunteer members.

Playground Equipment:
All recreational play equipment must be removed from front yards when not in use and located to a rear area not in view of the streets. This includes portable basketball hoops, hockey nets, and tree swings.

Architectural Control Process Changes Complete; Violations Now Managed by NMI

The Watters Crossing HOA has been most fortunate thru the years in having many volunteers to step up and fill openings on the Architectural Control Committee. Since turnover from the developer in 1998, the five spots have continually been filled. Recent events; however, including an ever-increasing ACC workload and members being confronted and threatened, have resulted in the decision of the Board to contract the violation responsibilities of the ACC to NMI Management. The transition to NMI is complete and homeowners should see very little difference. Read more…

Dogs, Dog Leashes, and Dog Poo

The WCHOA Board continues to receive complaints concerning dogs. We are asking for everyone with dogs to be aware and considerate of your neighbors. Read more…

Cars, Trucks, Garages, and More

The ACC typically receives complaints, comments, and concerns regarding on-street parking. The Declaration of of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions of Watters Crossing permits on-street parking of licensed motor vehicles. Note that boats, trailers, and recreational vehicles may never be parked on any street within Watters Crossing unless actively loading or unloading.
With that said, we would ask all homeowners to be mindful of their neighbors:

  • Avoid parking directly at an intersection, alley entrance, or stop sign which creates blind spots for turning drivers
  • Avoid parking directly opposite another car on your street as it creates both blind spots and difficulty for passing vehicles
  • Avoid, where possible, parking on Bel Air Drive; this street is heavily traveled by pedestrians (with kids and dogs) using the Hike and Bike trail. It also passes a number of areas of congestion including the Clubhouse, the Clubhouse Pool, the tennis court, three parks, and a school crossing.
Finally, while the Covenants permit on-street parking, Section 4.4 does restrict garage usage to parking of motor vehicles:

Section 4.4 Garage Required. Each Residence shall have a two-car garage conforming with then-applicable City zoning ordinances and codes, and the garage must conform in design and materials with the main structure of the Residence. No garage shall be converted to living space or used in any manner so as to preclude the parking of two automobiles therein, except for temporary usage as part of the sales facilities contained in any model homes constructed by a home builder.

Garrage  Your Car Called and Wants its Garage Back.

  Two car garages cannot be adapted to other usages, such as storage, an exercise area, or   permanent workshop. They must be maintained to hold two vehicles. Any usage that prevents   the usage as intended of holding two vehicles is a violation of the Covenants.







We do appreciate everything homeowners do to help keep our neighbor attractive and safe to travel.
