Lakewood garage sale to return

Lakewood’s communitywide semi-annual garage sale is back. Mark that calendar for Saturday, October 23, from 8 am to noon.

More than 30 households typically participate, and hundreds of buyers visit the community.

Here’s how it works: You conduct your own sale at your own home on your own terms. The HOA coordinates the scheduling and promotions. This way, instead of having dozens of smaller sales scattered around the neighborhood throughout the year, we coordinate our efforts to have more people come all on one morning. This keeps traffic to a minimum in the neighborhood the rest of the year.

Participation is free. You may place a small sign in your front yard if you want. Please remove the front yard signs by 1 pm.

Questions? contact the HOA office at 512-345-8367 from 8 am to noon on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays.

Street work starts Monday, Oct. 11

Paving work is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 11 on Lakewood Hollow, Paintbrush, Cascada (Lower) and 7411-7501 Lakewood Drive. Work is scheduled to begin at about 8 a.m. and will be completed in one day as a seal coat project. Cars need to be off the street by 7:30 a.m. The clubhouse will have limited parking, and you may park on Lakewood Drive or Waldon Drive.

Please plan to have NO ACCESS to your street for 24 hours. The paving must dry overnight for a good result. Also, the center of the cul-de-sacs that have marked parking spaces will be restriped the next day, so please do not park in the cul-de-sac until the stripes are painted. Good weather and everyone’s cooperation will make this a successful project. Any questions? Call the HOA office at 512-345-8367 from 8 a.m. to noon on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. The same work is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 18 for Quail Hollow, Grass Hollow and Coachwhip Hollow.

Update on sports court project

Repair work on the sports courts continues to progress, with both tennis courts and one basketball court now open. The tennis court farthest from the swimming pool and the basketball court nearest the playground have been stabilized, although that basketball court remains closed until a hole is filled and other repairs are finished. Resurfacing of all courts could occur this spring. The resurfacing will include smoothing, filling and repairing cracks and holes, and new paint. The HOA board has been told that this type of work should be done in warmer weather, so groundbreaking might be delayed until March.
