March 2017 Presidents Corner 

Marching into Spring

Greetings neighbors! It looks like we’ve weathered winter. Hopefully our landscapes will, too. It’s nearing that time of year when we all spring forward. Yes, Daylight Saving Time starts March 12.

As Presidents of the HOA board of directors, we started off the new year encouraging board members to try some new things, to think outside the box, in their respective roles to better advance the interest of the neighborhood, disseminate information of interest to residents and promote fellowship. Our first order of business was launching the digital Town Creek Crier and newly designed webpage. We hope you’ve had an opportunity to explore both. Let us know what you think. So far we’ve receive a lot of positive feedback. Thank you for the encouragement. We really appreciate all the contributors who provide us with helpful and fun information every month.

Our social committee has sprung into action, proposing several events this year for families and adults. Be watching for those. The first one happens this month—Dinner at Ephesus Mediterranean Grill (details below). Before you know it Easter will be upon us and our annual Easter Egg Hunt. The kids won’t want to miss this.

Our Crime Watch committee is hard at it, diligently seeking and pursuing ideas to boost participation in our Crime Watch program, increase patrol of our streets, and enhance crime prevention in the neighborhood.

For many, March means Spring Break! RISD students get their break from March 13-17. Often time families take this opportunity to get away with the family. If that’s true for your family, let you neighbors know so they can watch for an unusual activity. Let our Crime Watch Patrol know by calling or texting them with your name, address, phone number and dates you will be gone. REMEMBER, the patrol number changed on February 15. If you don’t yet have the new one, join today!

There are a lot of exciting things happening around us. We recently attended a meeting hosted by the Texas Department of Transportation discussing and demonstrating proposed changes to the eastern portion of Interstate Highway 635. Our government officials believe these changes will be positive for our neighborhood, increasing mobility, safety and positive economic development. You can read more about it and find links to schematics under Lake Highlands News. We encourage you to keep up with this and other proposed changes that will affect us, making our leaders aware of your thoughts, concerns and/or support.

Happy March!
