2018 Westcreek Annual Meeting – January 20

The Westcreek Neighborhood Association annual meeting is coming up! Join us on Saturday, January 20 at 2:00 PM.  The meeting will be held at Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church at 5226 William Cannon Drive (parking lot entrance from McCarty Lane) in the children’s building at the back. Pizza and other edibles will be provided and we hope the afternoon schedule works great for all our families.

The program will include a presentation by our Austin Police neighborhood representative, a short discussion of CodeNext, as well as a presentation of our Association’s highlights from 2017 and plans for the new year. We will hold elections for the WNA Executive Committee and we are hoping for a new volunteer to fill an open position. There are eight positions on the executive committee, each serving for two years. If you are interested, please contact me or any of the other current board members.
And please renew your membership today, if you have not already done so.  Here’s the link:  http://www.westcreekna.org/the-association/join-the-wna/.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on January 20th!

 

December 2017 Yard of the Month

Congratulations go out to the Sanders family at 6529 Fair Valley Trail for their holiday lights this month!  Richie & his wife Deborah have lived in Westcreek for fourteen years and regularly join WNA as they value the services of the organization. Their daughter Brianna is responsible for hanging the rooftop lights which was formerly her brother Brandon’s job but he is away at college so the job fell to her!  Richie is behind the rest of the decor & lighting which is synchronized to music. WNA appreciates the support of the Sanders family & thanks them for their lovely light display! They were rewarded with gift certificates from our YOM sponsors totaling $120! We thank Leaf Landscape, Klingemann Auto, Flores Mexican Restaurant, & D’Lites Ice Cream for their YOM sponsorship!
NOW is the time for you to pay your annual WNA dues of just $20 so that we can consider your yard for YOM!

BRUSH COUNTRY TRAILHEAD LANDSCAPING PROJECT!

We’ve partnered with Austin Texas Xeriscapes (ATX) to improve the “devil strip”.  Here is the completed xeriscaping project.  ATX has landscaped several yards in the neighborhood, including doing drainage improvements, and you’ve likely noticed the dog poop bag station he installed for a Summerset neighbor. John w/ ATX Xeriscaping is doing this pro-bono project for our neighborhood and will be providing a dog poop station near the trailhead so dog walkers will be encouraged to scoop the poop. Just remember  when you use the complimentary poop bags, that you take them with you and dispose of them in a trashcan at home.

About Westcreek Neighborhood

The Westcreek Neighborhood  encompasses the area bounded by Old Fredericksburg Road on the north, Westcreek Drive and Yellow Rose Trail on the east, William Cannon Drive on the south, and Fair Valley Trail, Steer Trail and Honey Dew Terrace on the west.

Our neighborhood, which was first developed in the late 70s and early 80s, has around 800 homes within its boundaries. We have very easy access to Hwy. 290 and Mopac, and are within walking distance to a wide variety of outdoor activities, restaurants and shopping.

Westcreek is located in East Oak Hill.  In 2008, the Austin City Council approved the Oak Hill Neighborhood Plan, which was created using a multi-year community input process involving city staff and local community leaders and neighbors.

 

What does the Westcreek Neighborhood Association do for Westcreek?

Your all-volunteer Westcreek Neighborhood Association (WNA) is continually helping you behind the scenes and working on projects and improvements that directly affect you, your family, and the value of your home investment. Learn more…

We hope you will agree that supporting the WNA is not only beneficial to you and your property, but also to your community. Dues paying members may vote on executive committee member nominations and all neighborhood voting matters.

The Westcreek Trailhead in the first spring after planting. New curbs, drainage lanes and sidewalks were put in with city funding at the request of the Westcreek Board of Directors. Decorative boulders and plants were added by neighborhood volunteers.

Westcreek Trailhead – springtime native plants bloom in what used to be a dead-end eyesore at the end of Brush Country. Your Association Officers made this happen in conjunction with the City of Austin.
