And Try to Help Here Too….
Please Pick Up Your Poop

The Board continues to receive complaints of people walking their dogs and not picking up after them. There are six doggie stations along Bel Air Drive plus the ones located in the City of Allen Watters Crossing Park. Please be considerate of your neighbors and pick up after your dog. A reminder that it is a City Ordinance to do so.

Landscaping Plans

The ACC receives and reviews landscaping plans from homeowners as all improvements must be reviewed. Plans are delayed and many times declined….READ MORE HERE .

Projects Submitted to the Architectural Control Committee

All exterior improvements must be submitted to the Architectural Control Committee for review and approval prior to work commencing. In order for projects to be properly reviewed by the committee members, Project Review Forms located online at www.watterscrossing.com in the ACC link must be utilized. Do not email requests via email to individual Committee members or to acc@watterscrossing.com We ask that as you work through your project, should the Committee request further information, that you respond to these requests through the system and not email individual Committee members as it greatly slows down the process. If you have difficulty with the process or wish further explanation, please email Brenda Simmons at bsimmons@nmitx.com While the Committee volunteers determine the outcome of your project, Brenda is the facilitator of the information of that process. We greatly appreciate your understanding that the process runs more smoothly and quickly in adhering to these guidelines.

All Exterior Improvements Must Undergo ACC Review

We remind all homeowners that all exterior improvements must be submitted to the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) for review prior to work commencing. Among other items, this includes exterior lighting, security cameras, and storm doors. Lighting Guidelinesfor exterior guidelines are in the ACC link at www.watterscrossing.com In the same link you will find Guidelines for Storm Doors. If in doubt as to if something needs ACC review, just email acc@watterscrossing.com and ask.

On Street Parking in Watters Crossing

The Board of Directors and the Architectural Control Committee frequently receive complaints concerning on-street parking. The fact of the matter is, on street parking of licensed motor vehicles is permitted within Watters Crossing. However, the complaints concerning on-street parking are not necessarily that there are cars parked on the street, but rather the manner in which these vehicles are parked. Complaints include the number of cars parked together, cars parked on both sides of the road; cars parked too close to stop signs. These situations cause visibility issues and there is a great concern for the children here. Please be considerate of your neighbors.

With that said, we would ask all homeowners:

  • 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.
  • If on-street parking, park in front of your property, not in front of a neighbor’s home (this is a frequent complaint)
  • 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. As a main feeder street, it passes a number of areas of congestion including the Clubhouse, the Clubhouse Pool, the tennis court, three parks, and two school crossings.
  • No car can be parked in the street and covered as if in storage.
  • RVs, boats, watercraft, and trailers, can never be stored on the streets within Watters Crossing nor parked there, except for loading and unloading.

Finally, while the Covenants permit on-street parking, Section 4.4 does restrict garage usage to parking of motor vehicles. Garages must be maintained to allow for the parking of the number of vehicles inside for which they were designs. Garages cannot be adapted to other usages, such as storage, an exercise area, or permanent workshop. They must be ma0intained to hold two, or three, vehicles. Any usage that prevents the usage as intended of house vehicles is a violation of the Covenants. Note that if anything is preventing a homeowner from parking two (or three per design) vehicles within their garage, it is a violation of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions of Watters Crossing. Violation notices of Section 4.4 of the Covenants have been sent in the past and will continue to be sent as we move forward.

Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions, 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.
  1. Use your garage as intended and required.
  2. Use your driveway.
  3. Be mindful of your neighbor when parking on our neighborhood streets
Architectural Control Committee Reminder
