Volunteer
We are an all-volunteer Homeowners Association. Volunteers are needed for social functions to continue. We are in need of volunteers for one hour spots on concessions and to help set up on Saturday. Please go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b49ada629a4f94-2019 to volunteer for your community. New volunteers are always welcome!

Private Event
This is a Private Event for residents of Watters Crossing only. No guests are permitted at this event. Also, we ask that for everyone’s enjoyment; all children under the age of 16 must have a parent present. Unescorted children will be asked to leave.
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.

Pond Dredging Scheduled

Pond dredging at the Phase I Pond / Bel Air Drive and Watters Crossing Drive has been scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 16. Dredging should take approximately 3-5 days.

Proposed Allen Sports Village

The proposed Allen Sports Village, located at the northwest corner of Ridgeview Drive and Alma Drive, will feature an 18,000 seat open-air stadium. Detailed information on the proposed development is Here. Questions from concerned Watters Crossing residents can be directed to president@watterscrossing.com

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

Eagle Scout Project Is New Addition
To Clubhouse Grounds!

Horse shoe Pit Watters Crossing now has a horseshoe pit. Located on the west side of the Clubhouse, the project was just completed in July. The horseshoe pit is the Eagle Scout Project of Gage Sherwinski. Gage and Troop 1299 worked a Saturday and Sunday on construction and installation. The Board of Watters Crossing would like to thank him for this significant contribution to the community.

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.
