Waldon Drive – Get Your New Mailbox Keys

lakewood_mailboxes

Earlier today the U.S. Postal Service replaced damaged mailboxes on Waldon Drive. The new mailboxes appear to be sturdier and will hopefully discourage the thieves who damaged the old mailboxes from trying to break-in again. The new mailboxes offer larger outgoing mail slots and twelve boxes of varying sizes to secure packages.

If this was your mailbox location, you’ll need to get a new mailbox key by going to the Jollyville Post Office location with your valid photo ID (driver’s license, etc.) and proof of your address (ideally the address is on your photo ID). They’ll tell you which mailbox is yours and give you a new set of keys at no charge.

Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 2

All homeowners are cordially invited to attend the Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 2, at 1:30pm at the Lakewood Clubhouse. A special invitation is extended to homeowners who purchased their homes during 2018 and 2019. For all residents, this is your chance to meet the Board members and officers who volunteer their time to serve all the homeowners, and protect your investment in the community of Lakewood.

There are two Board member positions open for the 2019 year. If you wish to run for the Board, please submit a short bio about yourself which can be handed out at the Annual Meeting with the ballots. Please contact the Lakewood office no later than May 17th to have your name placed on the ballot.

If you cannot attend the meeting, please fill out the proxy form that will be mailed to you and assign your proxy to someone who will be attending or assign it to one of the Board members. We need a quorum present in person or by proxy in order to conduct business. If we don’t get a quorum we have to schedule another annual meeting at an approximate cost of $700. We need your proxy or for you to attend in person.

Saturday, April 27th set for Lakewood Semi-Annual Garage Sale

garage_sale_lakewood_2019Lakewood’s community-wide semi-annual garage sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, from 8am to noon. Typically, more than 30 households participate and hundreds of buyers are attracted to 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 in the garage sale is free. Lakewood HOA will place an ad in Craigslist and place a sign at Lakewood’s main entrance. You may also place a small sign in your front yard if you want. Please remove the front yard signs by 1pm.

If you have questions, please contact the HOA office at (512) 345-8367 on Mon-Wed-Fri from 8am to noon.
