April 2024 game night flyer.jpg

ADULTS GAME NIGHT IS AT 6 PM SAT., APRIL 20

Adult residents are invited to join us at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 20 for a free game night at the clubhouse. Snacks will be provided, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own beverages (BYOB). February's game night was a hit, so we hope even more residents will join in the fun this time around.

 

Game varieties will vary depending on the size of the crowd. The HOA will serve light munchies, such as chips and dip, pretzels and cookies. We'll also have soda and water, and attendees can bring any beverage they'd like to enjoy during the event.  Because the HOA received feedback that some residents would enjoy a fun evening for adults only, we kindly ask that anyone who attends does not bring children. Thank you for understanding.

1MULTIPLE OPTIONS FOR
1COMBATTING FIRE ANTS

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

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.

1HOA WORKS TO REPAIR
1LIGHTNING DAMAGE

 

COMMUNITY PROPERTY HEAVILY DAMAGED BY SEVERAL 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.

1HOA ADHERES TO GOALS,
1PROTECTS 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.
