From the Developer
As the weather warms and our residents enjoy the outdoors, this is a friendly reminder that the purpose of the Information Centers is to provide community and builder information to prospective purchasers. We ask that you visit the Lodge or the Sycamore House, your HOA community centers, so that our Guides are able to focus their attention on their professional duties. The Boat House and the Tenant House are developer buildings in use for sales purposes between the hours of 11am and 6pm daily. If you have any questions regarding this request please email the developer at email@example.com.
Call for Volunteers
The HOA Board of Directors and Founder are interested in incorporating resident volunteers in the Design Review Process. As Willowsford nears transition from the Founder Control Period, the Design Review Committee and process will be entrusted to residents. In preparation, we are currently seeking interested volunteers to participate, which may include feedback and recommendations for Design Guidelines, attendance at DRC pre-review and/or committee meetings. Currently DRC meetings are held during the day, every 3 weeks during the summer months. Please email HOA@Willowsford.com if you are interested.
Yard Waste Reminder from Republic Services
The weather is getting warmer and the days longer which allows more time for homeowners to work on their lawns, gardening, and tree pruning. Over the last month, our drivers have reported that yard waste is being left behind as it is not set out correctly. This can become confusing and cause frustration with homeowners and the Republic Services team would like to take a moment to remind all homeowners of our yard waste packaging instructions.
Please place yard waste out on the scheduled yard waste collection day, from March 1st through December 24th. Grass clippings, leaves and twigs can be place in biodegradable paper bags, plastic bags, or personal containers marked as ‘YARD WASTE’.
All brush and limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter, cut into 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with rope or twine and cannot exceed 50 pounds.
