A BIG Thanks to Spring Party 2019 Volunteers

The Watters Crossing Spring Party 2019 was a huge success. We had great weather and a great turnout. Your Spring Party is possible due to the many volunteers who helped plan, set-up, and work during the party, and clean up. And we had a big increase in volunteers. Almost all volunteer slots were filled for the party. We want to give a big THANKS to all those volunteers for helping to make Watters Crossing a great neighborhood and a fun place to live.

WANTED: Playgroup Coordinator

We want to thank, Kelly McCawley, who has been our volunteer as the Watters Crossing Playgroup Coordinator since September 2015. She will be missed. We are now in the process of looking for a volunteer to step in as Playgroup Coordinator.

The Watters Crossing Playgroup is open to parents with children 5 and under. The playgroup meets weekly on Friday mornings at 10:30 AM. Meetings are held at the Watters Crossing Park located on the corner of Bel Air Drive and Newport Drive. The playgroup may visit other nearby Allen parks, attend local events such as story time at the library, or we may schedule special activities and/or field trips. All news and updates regarding the playgroup are communicated in the private Facebook group.

If you are interested in helping your your community, please email Kelly at playgroup@watterscrossing.com and she can explain what is involved in the position.

Efforts to Resist Short Term Rentals

This Friday, the House will be voting on SB29, which will limit the ability of cities to send representatives to the state legislature to advocate for city issues and taxes, including the protection of our neighborhoods and homes.

As you know, city representatives were critical in our fight against the Short Term Rental legislation this year. There is no way for us to follow the intricacies of the legislative process without this support. It is patently unfair to limit city voices - and not limit all other voices. ANY LEGISLATION (including future STR legislation already promised by Chen-Button) can be written with the 'tax' term that would prohibit cities from supporting/advocating for the safety and protection of neighborhoods and families. If SB29 passes, we will be at a severe disadvantage against the representatives from big West Coast businesses (Airbnb, Expedia/VRBO, etc.) in the future.

Please call and ask your state representative to vote NO on SB29 on Friday. This will only take 1-2 minutes of your time. Attached are additional information and talking points

House Numbers

All homes within Watters Crossing have carved stone house numbers on the front elevation. It is recommended to trim and maintain adjacent landscaping such that these numbers are visible from the street. Also, there are a significant number of homes within Watters Crossing which have had the house numbers removed that were originally above the garage doors. These are extremely important to emergency vehicles in locating the correct property if they have to access the home via the alleys. If you have a sliding driveway gate, your numbers on your garage may not be visible to the alley. House numbers then should be mounted on your driveway gate. Your HOA recommends installation of these.

Clubhouse Rental Process is Revised

The process for payment and deposits for Clubhouse rentals has been revised. Renters will no longer leave deposit checks and payment checks in the mailbox within the Clubhouse during their rental period. Effective immediately, all deposit checks and Clubhouse rental checks will be deposited in the dropbox on the Clubhouse exterior to the left of the front door. Clubhouse deposit checks and payment checks, written as two checks, are to be deposited in this dropbox within seven (7) days of your making your reservation on the Clubhouse calendar. Reservations will not be approved from the calendar by the Clubhouse Coordinator if the deposit check and payment check have not been received during that time. As a reminder, the deposit is $200. Also, all checks must be imprinted with a valid Watters Crossing residents name and address. Further information on Clubhouse rentals is at the Clubhouse link at www.watterscrossing.com

If you have questions, please email clubhouse@watterscrossing.com

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.
