Woodlake Villas News, June 2018, Issue 2

Summer is here, and the pool has been exceptionally busy with swimmers taking advantage of the nice, clean, and wellmaintained pool. It appears that a lot of the people swimming in the pool are not residents, yet they have access to the pool which tells us that residents are giving out their gate passes for their guest to use. This has created the need for more required maintenance. The pool is for Woodlake residents and their guests only. There is a limit of two (2) guests per villa and guests must be accompanied by a resident at all times. (For exceptions, please contact the on-site office.) All users must have an amenities pass. Do not let others into the pool area as you are responsible for all guests and any damage they may cause. Failure to abide by these restrictions may result in the suspension or loss of your amenities pass.

We are receiving many complaints of residents and guests driving way too fast in Woodlake. There are many children living in Woodlake and they are always playing games in the parking lot and frequently running out into the road from in between cars. Anyone seen by our Community Relations Officer or an employee driving too fast in Woodlake may have their parking privileges suspended or revoked.  If we can’t get the speeding under control with the cooperation of all residents, we will be forced to add more speed bumps to slow everyone down.

It has also been brought to our attention that there are a lot of under age children using the pool and fitness center. Our Regulations and Procedures Manual states that use of the pool by “Children thirteen (13) and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian eighteen (18) years of age or older at all times” and also states that “Use of the fitness center is for Woodlake residents only; users must be at least fifteen (15) years of age. Children under the age of fifteen (15) are prohibited to be in the fitness center.

Pool Closure

Beginning Monday, March 26th, the pool will be closed for renovations and will reopen, weather permitting, Friday, March 30th. We are replacing the pool chlorine system, repairing or replacing the deck chairs and the pool deck/bathrooms floors are being painted. With a little bit of cooperation from Mother Nature, the pool should re-open this upcoming Easter weekend for everyone to enjoy.

Many of our residents are still complaining about pet owners who are NOT picking up after their pets in the common areas or dog run area. This has been and continues to be a major problem here at Woodlake. If this problem continues, pet owners who do not clean up after their pets, in addition to the appropriate fines, will have their common area pet privileges revoked and will be required to take their pets off the property to do their business. Cleaning up after your pet shows that you respect your neighbors and your community. If you see anyone not cleaning up after their pet anywhere on the property, please report this to the onsite office. Once again, we respectfully ask that all dog owners pick-up after they have done their business. Woodlake will be offering monetary rewards to those whose information leads to catching those responsible for not policing after their pet.

We are aware of the damage that occurred to a large percentage of plant material during this past winter storm and freeze. This unattractive dead growth that you see will not be removed until we do our spring pruning as it will help protect the plants from any more freezes that we may experience before spring. While it may have hit the 80’s already in February, March has experienced several freezing events. Once we begin our annual spring pruning, (which will happen when we are fairly certain there won’t be any more freezes and it is safe to trim the plants), we will be removing all dead plant material. Any plants that are in bloom at this time will be pruned within a 6-week period after they are done blooming. A few examples of the plants that will be in bloom during the spring are as follows: Azaleas, gardenias, camellias, etc. There are a few plants that will be pruned in the fall instead of the spring such as Hydrangeas

New Landscaped Area

IMG_1139Back in the fall of 2017 we started a project to create a newly landscaped area in Woodlake for residents to enjoy. We have planted sod and plants that are in the process of growing, which need time to take root without being disturbed. We ask that you refrain from walking through this area or letting children play in this area until the plants and grass have time to establish a healthy root system that will prevent the plants from dying. We hope that by the beginning of summer we can open the area up and let all residents enjoy the new beautiful landscaped area without restrictions. Until that time, we respectfully ask that you please stay off the grass and out of this area to give it time to properly establish a healthy root system

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Community Christmas Tree

5a0b0fe6468fd.imageWoodlake Villas now has a Christmas tree in the community room next to the pool. If you would like to help decorate the tree, you can do so by adding an ornament of your own and placing it on the tree. The ornament may be homemade or purchased, we just ask that it not be breakable and in good taste. The plan is to continue putting the tree up in coming years and add to the community decorations over time.
