 POOL MANAGEMENT 
lUPDATE FOR VGS HOA

As the pool season progresses through the 4th of July holiday weekend and advances to its midpoint, the Villages at Godley Station HOA board of directors would like to inform the membership of recent progress in overcoming challenges related to swimming pool operations.

At the outset of the pool season, there was structural damage that had to be repaired before the pool could receive department of health approval to open. These repairs were made in time for the pool to open safely and on time.

Subsequent to the pool’s opening, it became apparent that the main pool had a leak. The water level was dropping at a rate of one inch per day.

 MULTIPLE OPTIONS FOR
COMBATTING FIRE ANTS

HOA BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS PLANNED FOR FIRE ANT TREATMENT AROUND COMMUNITY IN APRIL 

The Villages at Godley Station's Homeowners Association Board of Directors has already booked a pest control treatment for fire ants in April, but until then, here are some ways to help deal with ant mounds, should you encounter one.

You can identify a fire ant mound in two separate ways. The ant mound can either be flat within the turf or dome-shaped, and neither has a center opening at the top. Fire ants evolved from wasps and have a very nasty, painful sting. Because they attack as a group, fire ants can pose a serious problem, especially to small children and pets. Bites typically result in welts and blisters, but if someone is bitten by too many ants, it can cause anaphylactic shock.

 HOA WORKS TO REPAIR
LIGHTNING DAMAGE

VILLAGES AT GODLEY STATION PROPERTY WAS HEAVILY
DAMAGED BY LIGHTNING STRIKES IN SEPTEMBER

 

In September, lightning struck The Villages at Godley Station during a particularly bad thunderstorm. The strike resulted in damage to our local network and the clubhouse’s main access control system (software and hardware), which allows residents in and out of clubhouse and other gated amenities. The resulting challenges have made it difficult for the HOA to activate new cards or change the status of old ones, pending a new system installation. The damage to the local network was repaired.

Many physical repairs were made to transformers and power supply to the various gates. In addition, repairs were made to the pool chemical application system, the security cameras, and the clubhouse HVAC system – all of which were damaged in the lightning strikes.

 HOA ADHERES TO GOALS,
PROTECTS COMMUNITY

The Villages at Godley Station’s Homeowner’s Association has many objectives but, above all else, it aims to maintain a safe and nurturing environment for residents to enjoy. The board of directors wants all HOA members to maximize the benefits of community association living by better understanding the purpose and function of such associations.

By purchasing property in a homeowners’ association, the owner agrees to abide by the community’s pre-established Covenants, as well as the Rules & Regulations document. Owners live near their neighbors, share common facilities – such as the pool, playground, tennis courts and dog park – and voluntarily relinquish certain freedoms, all for the cause of protecting communal property values and reducing nuisances. The HOA believes that reasonable restrictions, consistently enforced over time, preserves the net value of the community and maintains a high quality of life for residents.

 LIVE IN HARMONY
WITH HOA'S WETLANDS

The Villages at Godley Station Homeowners Association owns 281 acres of common green spaces throughout the neighborhoods of The Arbors and Copper Village. This land accounts for nearly half of the total acreage of the whole community, and includes ponds, lagoons, wetlands, stormwater catch basins and drainage ditches, all of which are also maintained by the HOA. 

Much of the HOA's land is comprised of wetlands, which are areas where water covers the soil, or is present either at or near the surface of the soil, all year or for varying periods of time during the year. Wetlands are beneficial for a variety of reasons, including flood control, sediment control, nutrient cycling, maintaining wildlife habitats and recharging groundwater. So, it's important for these swaths of land to be cared for properly. The HOA takes this responsibility seriously and maintains wetlands in several ways, such as protecting the healthy native plants growing there, which benefits local water quality.
