Wildlife Alert

WCHOADated: 4/16/2015

In the past week to ten days, there have been two separate coyote attacks on dogs. In both cases, the dogs were being walked on leashes.

One was around 10:00 AM and one was around 1:00 PM. In each case, it was a single coyote.

Both attacks happened on the hike and bike trail along the greenbelt between the Watters Crossing main entrance at McDermott and the clubhouse. The most recent was in the area of the pond.

When walking pets in the greenbelt areas, especially in the area noted, please be alert for wildlife.

WCHOA Volunteers

One of the unique things about Watters Crossing is that the Home Owner’s Association is completely self-managed: no management fees are incurred.  Every dollar of your HOA dues goes directly to maintain and improve Watters Crossing.

Sanitation Engineer

We are in need of a volunteer to return the trash polycarts from the street to the enclosure at the rear of the clubhouse once per week, after trash is picked up on Tuesdays.

This is an ideal volunteer slot for someone living close to the clubhouse. If you are interested in this position, please contact any board officer via president@watterscrossing.com or acc@watterscrossing.com

Poly Cart Storage

The ACC is asking for everyone’s compliance with Section 4.7(h) of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions of Watters Crossing.  This section states:

All containers and other facilities for trash disposal must be located and screened in a manner approved by the Committee.

The Committee’s view regarding trash containers with respect to Section 4.7h of the Covenants is that poly carts, other than the day of pickup, must be concealed from view to any street.  Please note:

  • Poly carts are not to be moved to the ends of driveways until the evening of the day prior to collection
  • Poly carts must be removed from ends of driveways the night of the day of collection
  • Poly carts cannot be stored in any area visible to any street.  Concealment methods may include:

Fencing (note that ACC review is necessary prior to any construction)

Landscaping that results in immediate and complete concealment from view

Locating adjacent to garage, in garage, or rear yard, if such a location results in concealment from view

To further emphasize the above, it is a City of Allen Ordinance that poly carts must be removed from the ends of driveways to a concealed location following trash pickup.

During the growth of the past 20 years in Allen, Watters Crossing has become a highly desirable neighborhood in which to live.  Various realtors have made this statement at various community functions including the Semi-annual Homeowners’ Meetings.  We must all work together to maintain that desirability which also works to enhance our property values.  The continual visibility of a trash dumpster does nothing to enhance that value.  We do appreciate everyone’s cooperation with the enforcement of this Covenant.
