To Watters Crossing Homeowners

The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) process was a repeated subject at our recent Homeowners Annual Meeting. First, the Board wants to thank all homeowners for continuing to work closely with the Board and the Architectural Control Committee to keep our community beautiful and a place that we can all certainly be proud of and enjoy the multitude of activities to do within the Allen area. Read More HERE.

New Officers Elected At Annual Meeting

The socially distanced, outside meeting was well attended by over sixty homeowners on a sunny day, September 13. Following presentation by various departments from the City of Allen, two new officers were elected to the Board of Directors. Joining present Board members Marcia Ackerman and Mike Shisko, will be Katie Armstrong and Denny Adelman. Other contenders for the Board spots were Kendyl Glanz, David Burkhalter, and Forrest Kovach. We thank all of the candidates for their involvement and support of our neighborhood.

We say goodbye to former president Michelle Massi and former Secretary Mary Kuykendall. Michelle served as Board president for several years and prior to that was a volunteer on the Architectural Control Committee. Mary has served on the Board in various capacities since moving to Watters Crossing in 1994. Both will be greatly missed.

COVID-19 Update Clubhouse Remains Closed (Updated 8/25/2020)

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 and Clubhouse Pool 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 September will be refunded.

CLOSED:
The Clubhouse Pool remains closed at this time, due to reasons listed above and others, including:

  • There currently has been very little demand at the Newport Pool.
  • The additional cost of daily cleaning and sanitization at the Newport Pool is being offset by no housekeeping costs currently at the Clubhouse Pool. All surfaces, areas subject to contact, pool furniture, restrooms and so on are cleaned and sanitized daily at pool closure.
  • Opening of a second pool will increase COVID-19 exposures and risks.
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.

We have experienced some pool incidents during the past few weeks. We need all homeowners’ awareness concerning your pools. If there is disruption at the pool while you are there or you witness people entering the pool gate who should not be there, please email board@watterscrossing.com immediately.
