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.
We rescheduled the seal coating of streets for this Monday, September 28 and Tuesday, September 29 (weather permitting). The work will begin at approximately 8am each day and will continue until about 5pm. The streets that will get coated on each day are:
Monday, September 28
- Mesa Hollow
Tuesday, September 29
- Deer Hollow
- Johanne Ct.
The workmen will complete the entire street in one day. No on can drive on the street for at least 24 hours after the work is completed. Depending on the temperature it may take a little longer to drive. If you do drive on it before it fully dries, the seal coat will stick to your tires and pull some of the pavement onto the tires leaving a permanent mark in the street. Please don’t drive on it beforehand and ruin it.
You can walk on the pavement after about five hours but don’t wear your favorite or best shoes.
Please make sure to move your vehicles off the street prior to the work beginning around 8am on the designated day. If you need use of your car, plan to park on a neighboring street (Lakewood, Waldon, etc.) that isn’t getting worked on before your designated day of work and the following day while the coating dries.
With your cooperation and good weather, this project will be a success!
The street seal-coating that was scheduled for today and tomorrow for Hiridge Holllow, Hillside Hollow, Mesa Hollow, Deer Hollow, Johanne Court and Hideaway Hollow has been postponed due to the rain. We will reschedule it with the vendor and notify residents in advance of the new dates.
Many of the streets within the Lakewood community are owned by the HOA (excluding Lakewood Drive, Wallace Drive, Waldon Drive and a handful of others). We maintain these HOA-owned streets and put a new seal-coat on them approximately every three years or as needed should damage occur (weather, heavy trucks, etc.). To manage costs, we resurface about one-third of the streets each year on a rolling three-year cycle. Finding the right time to do the work is difficult in Austin because it can’t be too hot, too cold or wet for the sealcoat to stick properly.
