Construction Update April 2021

Dear Residents,

The City of Kyle has sent the following update.

“This is a notification that starting Friday, April 2, Cherrywood will be reopened for traffic. The same day, Indian Paintbrush Drive will be closed for construction as part of the Windy Hill Road Improvement project. Traffic during this time will be detoured from Indian Paintbrush Drive west onto Dandelion Loop, west onto Amberwood Loop and north onto Cherrywood back to Windy Hill Road.

Then, weather permitting, on Tuesday, April 20, the traffic on Windy Hill Road will be shifted to the south half of newly constructed road to begin Phase 3 of the project. At this time, Indian Paintbrush Drive will reopen. Phase 3 will include constructing the north half of Windy Hill Road, which is estimated will take approximately 4 months.

During that time there will not be a dedicated left turn lane into Purple Martin Avenue. An alternate route for residents to consider accessing the subdivision is taking Kelly Smith Lane to Dacy Lane to Windy Hill Road and utilizing the right turn lane on Windy Hill Road. All construction is weather permitting. For more information about the Windy Hill Improvement project and road closures, go to the City’s Project Page.”

Thanks,

Steven

For context, here is a message from HOA President, Cody DeSalvo:

Hi neighbors, I’m posting this in good faith to let everyone know about a significant development related to the HOA’s COVID-19 response that the HOA Board discussed at the meeting tonight. It is a long note, but I recommend everyone take a second to read it.

Tonight, the HOA decided to hire a lawyer to provide a legal opinion outlining all the procedures we will need to adopt to keep the pool and playground open. The lawyer will also offer their legal risk assessment on continuing to keep the pool open under several scenarios.

The HOA keeps several insurance products to protect our communal property and the HOA finances in the event of damage or liability incidents. We even have insurance that covers decisions that the HOA Board of Directors might make that results in a civil suit. For most events, our insurance company acts as a shield for the HOA and the Board members against personal liability. In those cases, if someone sues the HOA, the insurance company hires the lawyers; they manage the case, they deal with the financial payout. The HOA and Board members seldom come out of pocket. Even if the HOA lost in court, the insurance company pays out the award or settlement.

Last week we learned that none of our insurance policies protect the HOA organization or the individual Board of Directors from any COVID 19 related lawsuits. What does this mean in layman’s terms?

If the HOA is ever sued for something COVID-19 related, the defense in that lawsuit would have to be paid directly out of the HOA budget. If any of the board members are named explicitly in the case, we would have to retain lawyers and fight the case in court out of our individual pockets. We are not talking about small sums of money. Personally, that is a scary prospect – that I could be asked to drain my family savings to defend keeping the pool and playground open.

Board members are left with a difficult choice to decide what to do and if it is in the best financial interest of the HOA and our families to close the pool and playground. We did not choose to close anything at tonight’s meeting, but we will most likely need to make that decision before the end of August. We are working on hosting a Facebook live Townhall event and we may have a special board meeting to collect neighborhood input in a week or two. This issue was too important to wait until published meeting minutes or the next standing meeting of the Board. I cannot guarantee I have all the answers to your questions right now, but I encourage you to pay attention to your emails, the Facebook group, and Townsquare for opportunities to provide feedback.

Regards,
Cody
