Welcome to the Water's Edge at Fair Lakes HOA Website

 
Annual Homeowner's Meeting
TONIGHT...!!!
 
The annual Water's Edge HOA meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 19th, 7:00 PM.  The meeting will be a virtual meeting - Via a Zoom Teleconference Call.
 
Additional details are available on the Annual Meeting page.
 
 
Additionally, the Board is again proposing a change to amend the By-Laws  to allow for Electronic Meetings & Voting.  The Board again unanimously supports this initiative and urges all owners to VOTE “YES” ON ELECTRONIC MEETINGS & VOTING.

The meeting announcement letter will include a By-Laws ballot so that owners may vote to approve or not approve the By-Law changes. By-Laws ballots must be returned with a meeting proxy and received at SCS by Monday, Nov. 16th, 2020 in order to count. And your vote can only be counted if your return both your proxy AND your By-Laws ballot before the meeting or assign your vote to someone else to vote YES.

Why the Board Supports the By-Laws Changes…and You Should Too

Last year, before the Corona virus hit the U.S., the Water’s Edge Board attempted to change the By-Laws to allow for the HOA to hold and host virtual meetings, as well as allow owners to vote on a number of initiatives electronically. The Board hoped owners would prefer the option to attend meetings and vote in person or attend and vote from the comfort of their homes.  Now that social distancing, mandatory mask wearing, eliminating large gatherings, and protecting ourselves and loved ones from the risk of infection, virtual meetings and voting is not simply convenient, it’s imperative plus the right thing to do.
 
 
That’s why the Board unanimously supports the proposed changes to the By-Laws.  BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP. We need at least 60% of meeting participants to VOTE YES.  And your vote can only be counted if your return both your proxy AND your By-Laws ballot before the meeting or assign your vote to someone else to vote YES.
 
So help keep us all safer and VOTE YES on the By-Laws changes. Mail in your Proxy and your By-Laws Ballot as soon as you receive it.

Green Duck Lane Drainage Improvement
Starts early November
Drainage improvement work behind one side of Green Duck Lane (4719-4737) will begin within a couple weeks.  The work will impact those townhomes backing to the electric power lines and petroleum pipe line. 
 
Once the project starts, we ask that all residents avoid the area until the project is completed. There will be open  trenches and equipment which will make for hazardous walking.
 
The work is expected to take up to a month to complete and involves hand digging around all the utilities, then hauling away all excess soil, followed by installing drainage pipes in the newly excavated trench, with in-ground catch basins being placed behind each home. When completed, the area will be graded and seeded allowing all residents access to the rear of their properties. 
 
Please understand that the project may impact several guest parking spaces during this period as well as result in increased construction noise during the day. 
 
Additionally, for the safety, of impacted residents on Green Duck Lane, they may store trash and recycling totes in the front of their home during the project as to avoid having access the rear of your homes during the construction.  Once completed, we ask that you once again store trash and recycling totes in your rear yards. 
 
If you have any concerns or questions, please email Anastasia at SCS.

Please Break Down Boxes for Recycling
Please do not place large boxes that are not broken down and flattened ext to your recycling bin for pick-up.  Please break them down flat and place them in your recycling bin.  If you have more boxes than can fit into your recycling tote, please flatten all of them for easier handling by our trash  collectors.
 
Trash Update During Covid
Weekly trash (Mondays and Thursdays) and recycling (Mondays) will continue as normal. However, all special "bulk" pick-ups of large items, appliances, furniture, and other items has been discontinued by American Disposal Service, until further notice. 
 
Please DO NOT place large items curbside.  Please take them to the I-66 West Ox Recycling and Transfer Station across form Costco Plaza or contact a private trash hauler such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK to remove the items.
 
Additionally, lawn debris pick-ups during Covid may be delayed by a day or two.  If scheduled lawn debris pick ups do not occur as scheduled, please leave it curbside for the next pick-up.

Good Neighbor Parking...
Can You Park in your Driveway?
With more at home due to Covid, we ask all residents to please be a good neighbor and fully utilize all of their private parking spaces, including your garage and driveway BEFORE parking your vehicles in our limited number of guest parking spots. 
 
Taking up a parking space when it's not absolutely necessary, can result in someone having to carry groceries much further in the rain, make seniors or disabled guests walk further to visit residents, or parents to carry infants further than needed.  Plus, it's simply the neighborly thing to do.
We thank you for your neighborly cooperation.

Volunteer to Help
The Association is looking for several volunteers for help out on a couple committees:
  • Architectural Review (ARC)
  • Landscaping and Grounds
  • Social
  • Website & Newsletter
The community needs a couple people for the ARC and the Landscaping and Grounds Committee to keep our community looking good and property values high.  It's also tough to create a "sense of community" without getting to know your neighbors so a social Committee is needed to help people get out and meet their neighbors on a social basis, plan a few friendly events and get people involved.  And lastly, the website and expanded newsletter won't create itself without a few volunteers for the Website and Newsletter Committee helping write and edit our resident communications.
 
If you would like to volunteer for a committee, and WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Please use the Contact Us form and send your message directly to the specific committee.  You may also complete the Committee Volunteer form and submit it directly to SCS.  The form is located on the Forms & Documents page.
