Annual homeowners’ meeting is May 14

All Lakewood homeowners are invited to the annual meeting of the Lakewood Homeowners Association at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 14. We will serve a barbecue lunch and pastries, too.

Three board members are open for 2022: Keith McGill and Dave Brockman are up for re-election, and Roland Galang and Rachel Upshaw are running for the vacant position. The positions have two-year terms.

This is your chance to meet all board members and officers, who volunteer their time to serve all homeowners and protect your investment in the community of Lakewood. The HOA board extends a special invitation to homeowner who bought their homes from 2020 through 2022.

Homeowners should have received a mailout for the meeting with an agenda, budget, common area risk assessment and directed proxy/ballot.

In the past, it has been difficult to achieve a quorum to conduct business. Each time we schedule a meeting it costs about $1,500, so please give us your proxy/ballot even if you plan to attend.

To speak at the annual meeting, please register in advance by May 9. To register, call the office at 512-258-8200 or email hoa@lakewoodhoa.com with your name, address and topic. Those registered in advance will have up to three minutes to speak.

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.
