Notice: Pool and Playground Opening May 18 with Modified Occupancy

Playground and Pool Opens May 18 with Modified Occupancy

Neighbors,
We got word this week that the City of Kyle’s order closing pools and playgrounds are set to expire and will not be renewed. The playground and pool will be open to residents effective Monday, May 18 by 10 AM. Residents should still exercise physical distancing from people outside of their household and practice good hygiene.
State of Texas guidance caps the occupancy of pools to 25% capacity, therefore the pool and patio occupancy will be capped to a maximum of 37 people at any time. The occupancy limit will be checked periodically. We will update the occupancy limit as state guidance changes. Noncompliance with capacity limits may result in pool closure.
In addition to the occupancy limit rule, we ask that any pool visitors adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Each household should limit the number of visitors in the pool to 4 people.
  • Please do not bring non-resident guests to the pool.
  • Household groups should observe a 6 ft. physical distance away from people outside their household group.
  • We ask that residents limit their time at the pool to two hours, to be mindful of the occupancy limits. Many people will want to use the pool and we ask that we all show continued neighborliness by sharing this amenity.
  • Please note, if you leave the pool reentry may not be possible if the capacity limit is reached on your return. It is important to remember once you leave the pool anyone who is waiting to enter will take your place.
  • Residents should practice good hygiene and if a person in your household is sick, coughing, sneezing, or feels ill, everyone in the household should not go to the pool.
  • Per the standing rules and regulations of the pool, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Thank you to everyone in advance for bearing with the pool’s extended closure. I hope you can find some time to enjoy the pool and the outdoors this summer and I look forward to seeing you all out there.
Thank you,
Cody DeSalvo, President
Meadows of Kyle Residential Community, Inc.

Honoring our 2020 Grads

Calling all high school and college graduates living in Meadows of Kyle!

In light of the widespread cancellation of customary graduation ceremonies due to Covid-19, Meadows of Kyle HOA would like to recognize the 2020 high school and college graduates in our neighborhood. Our plan is to change the marquee message at the front of our neighborhood with a congratulatory message to include the name of a different graduate each week. We will also share photos of the marquee and any additional information you’d like to add to the community Facebook page. Due to space constraints only names will be shared on the marquee, any additional information provided will be shared on our community Facebook page. (Note: Length of time to remain on the marquee may be more or less depending on the number of submissions we receive.)

If you would like to include your graduate, please submit the form below. The Communications Committee will create a schedule and notify all participants of the time period when they will be honored at the marquee. We will schedule these as they are received and continue through the month of June.

If you have any questions, please contact our Communications Committee at mok.communication@gmail.com – if you would like to submit your senior photo to be shared on our Facebook page as well, you may send it to the same email.

Thanks and Congratulations Graduates!

Disclaimer: By submitting this form you are giving permission for Meadows of Kyle to share the information provided in a public forum. Students, please make sure your parents are aware and are in agreement. 

Tuesday Tip: Important Reminders About Pets

Today’s tip is all about our four-legged friends. These important reminders will help ensure the safety of our pets and our neighbors.

LEASH LAWS

The City of Kyle leash law requires all dogs to be kept on a leash at all times. (Article II. Sec. 5-38) This law applies when you are walking your dog around the neighborhood, in easements, or other public areas. Dogs are not to be off leash at any time.

PET REGISTRATION

ALL animals (cats, dogs, turtles, etc) are required to be registered with the City of Kyle (Article VI Sec 5-185). Visit the Animal Control website to obtain registration form or see details for online registration. This will also help to ensure the return of your pet should they be lost. Note: proof of vaccination is required.

STRAY PETS

There has been an increase in the number of pets roaming without owners. Make sure your gates and fences are properly secured and make repairs immediately to prevent your pet from getting out. To report stray animals, contact Kyle Animal Control at 512.268.3232 (Note KAC offices out of the Kyle Police Department and this number is the same as the non-emergency line).

LOST ANIMALS

If your pet has been lost, you will want to check the various social media sites dedicated to lost and found pets. (There are a number of groups and pages on Facebook, NextDoor is another great resource). You may place signs in your yard and around the community. Signs may not be placed on the mailboxes. Note: If your pet is picked up by Animal Control, they will be taken to the San Marcos Animal Shelter which takes in all stray animals reported in Hays County.

PET WASTE PICK-UP

When walking your pets, make sure to carry trash bags to clean up your pet’s waste. Failure to clean up after your pet is a reportable offense and can result in citation of up to $500 by Kyle Police and/or Kyle Animal Control.

Notice: Temporary Changes to HOA Policy During Coronavirus Outbreak

Neighbors,

On behalf of the Meadows of Kyle Homeowners Association Board of Directors, I want to thank every one of our members for taking all the necessary self-isolation precautions that are keeping our community and loved ones safe.

In times like this, I’m reminded we are all members of the same human family. Keeping this in mind gives me confidence we will make it through this crisis, especially if we all do our part to help.

The Coronavirus outbreak has caused a lot of strain on our day-to-day life making even minor errands like grocery shopping more difficult and in some cases has even resulted in layoffs or economic pressure. In response to the economic crisis that has been born from the Coronavirus outbreak, I have proposed to the Board of Directors and they have agreed to enact policies to try and support each household. Like each of you, the Board is trying to do our small part to help.

Effective today, we will temporarily be halting compliance fines and replace them with courtesy notices. Excessive violators may still see compliance fines should courtesy notices go completely unanswered, these situations will be dealt with by the Board on a case by case basis. In addition, we will not be charging late fees for unpaid HOA assessments (dues). Your assessments are still due on schedule, but if your household has a hard time paying on-time during this crisis we don’t want you to feel the pain of additional fees and penalties. This will have the effect of deferring your assessments until you can make payment. If you find yourself struggling to pay your assessments please reach out to our Manager, Bobby Humphries at Bobby.Humphries@goodwintx.com to make arrangements or just to provide a courtesy notice of your inability to pay.

Lastly, the Board has agreed to pause all ongoing foreclosure proceedings and will temporarily suspend future enforcement liens and foreclosures.

The Board’s continuing responsibility is to ensure that our community property is maintained, our home values are protected, and your money is well managed. We will assess how best to do that during this outbreak and make adjustments to our approach as needed.

We will discuss these issues at our April 7th teleconference meeting (more info to come soon) and provide new updates in mid-April. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our website or email us at mok.board@gmail.com.

Thank you,
Cody DeSalvo, President
Meadows of Kyle Residential Community, Inc.

Important Notice Regarding COVID-19: Community Response

Neighbors,
I have spoken with the Hays County Local Health Authority and at this time Hays County is recommending that all communities take steps to discourage gatherings of 50 people or more. In order to protect the health and safety of our community, as well as comply with federal, state, and local guidance regarding coronavirus (COVID-19)
I have directed Goodwin Management to postpone the pool opening and ordered the closure of the following community spaces: the pool, the park, playground, and the pavilion.
I will reassess these closures in mid-April.
Many people are seeking information about what to do during this situation. There is a lot of information out there and commentators on various cable news channels are not reliable sources. I recommend bookmarking the Texas Department of State Health Services and Centers for Disease Control websites and follow their guidance. I found the CDC FAQ page particularly helpful in myth-busting some common misconceptions about the virus, please take a second to review.
With all of the current disruptions to our daily lives, I know this may not be welcome news to some, particularly with schools currently closed for Spring Break. My ongoing priority, as always, is making sure our community is as safe as it can be. We will discuss these issues at our April 7th Board meeting (which we may host by teleconference) and provide new updates in mid-April. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our website or contact us at mok.board@gmail.com.
