BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
The Board of Directors meets monthly, on the first Tuesday of each month, at the Sterling offices,562 Kingwood Drive, Suite 13 . Meetings begin at 7:00 PM, and the meetings usually run until around 9:00 PM. There is no meeting in December. The first item on the agenda each month is public
The Board consists of nine (9) members elected to three-year terms. Three directors are elected each year at the annual meeting in October. Current Board members are: Richard Marshall, Marcia Powell, Bob Robertson, Michael Higgins, Scott Wiggins, JC Clifton, Sergiu Burca.
While the Board has the primary fiduciary responsibility for all Community Association matters, we contract with three separate management companies for the day-to-day operations. One company – Sterling ASI - is the main point of contact for all matters pertaining to Deed Restrictions, Assessments, Architectural Control, etc. The village manager is currently Mary Brown. The second company - Jeff Ellis and Associates - manages the swimming pool and they hire another company to assist them in maintaining our pool. The third is Lake Houston Lawn maintains entrances and common areas. The Woodland Hills Trail Association maintains our parks and trails. We also work very closely with our Gwendolyn Condoleo the Mayor's Assistance
The main activity conducted by the Board for the community is the operation of the swimming pool, which is located at 2159 Fir Springs. The pool is closed for maintenance on Mondays (except Holidays), and open Tuesday-Sunday during the summer, from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM (open until 9:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays). The pool is open to all members of the Association in good standings and their guests.
Our playground equipment is some of the newest, biggest and best in Kingwood. It has certainly been a hit with the kids. And while our playground is as safe as any other, we do urge parents to monitor their children during play. We also have a full size basketball court at the park which also has been a big hit not only with the kids but adults alike. We also have a soda machine available to you everyday near the pool entrance. This machine is maintained by Wahoo’s Swim Team.
Of course, it wouldn't be a letter from the Association President if I didn't mention something about Restrictive Covenants or Deed restrictions!
The Community has certainly improved a lot in the last couple of years, and I commend you for that. While the Board does provide direction to, and contracts with, the management company to enforce these restrictions, final resolution of the violations comes directly from you and nowhere else. Thank you for your efforts and your cooperation for observing the deed restrictions.
I guess the biggest infraction we still find nowadays is garage sales, trash cans viewable from the street, and lawn/roof maintenance. Our Restrictive Covenants expressly forbid any commercial activity within the Community; and the courts have interpreted sales of this type as commercial activity. The board has voting to host two garage sales each year, one in the spring and the other in the fall. We would appreciate your help in keeping these violations down.
In closing, let me again say that the Board invites your input into the operation of your Association. We welcome your attendance at the Board meetings and the annual meeting. Please remember there are a lot of kids on the streets when school is in session.
