Halloween Party in the park!

Westwood Estates Halloween Party

By the way, there are two black cats who live across from the park. Maybe they’ll come around. 😉

This Wednesday, October 31 from 5:30 – 6:30 in the park.

Bring the kids!!

Neighborhood Night Out Block Party Tuesday 6-8 in the Park

Last year, Bryan Fire Dept. came to show the neighborhood kiddos everything about the new fire trucks down the street at the new station. A few brave kids even got to start the truck!

This year we’ll be meeting as a neighborhood; all blocks invited to come together for a Westwood Estates All-Block Party in the Park from 6:00 – 8:00pm this Tuesday Oct. 2!

We’ll have plenty of food cooked outdoors thanks to Mike and Laura Stafford. Bryan Police Neighborhood Enforcement Team Officer Mike Watson is scheduled to come to meet neighbors, give us advice on keeping Westwood Estates safe and to answer questions we may have.

But one of the most important reasons for National Night Out is to meet our neighbors, and be ready to help each other keep a close watch on each others’ properties and vehicles.

And maybe to make new friends! We hope to see you Tuesday 6-8 in the Park!

Park Work Day May 19, 8am – noon

Last year’s work days went very well, with much accomplished. We look forward to seeing people come out this year!

Last year we had two work days, with a great deal of work needed and a great deal of work completed. This year there are fewer tasks, but still a need for as many who are able.

We’ll be concentrating on clearing brush, including in the numerous trails in the woods, and hauling it to the curbs. Also, there are many trees needing trimming, and a few dead ones to be cleared out.

We look forward to seeing everyone who can contribute some time on Saturday the 19th!

All who contributed to the work last year are greatly appreciated!

This subdivision is at a crossroads

UPDATE: The Annual Meeting Proxy is ready. Download the Proxy here.

With the coming of the Health Science Center and the Biomedical Corridor, our neighborhood has the potential to see substantial increase in the value of our homes. Not staying current on our paperwork can and almost certainly will cost each of us by reducing or limiting our property values. Our deed restrictions and bylaws are over 25 years old. They need updating. That means we need at least 98 people or their proxies to initiate this process.

We’ll be posting proposed changes and soliciting member input. We expect the process to take perhaps 3-6 months, but we cannot even begin without a simple majority vote at the annual meeting.

After all the proposed changes are in place, we’ll hold a special meeting to approve them. This meeting will also require a simple majority (50% plus one) vote to approve.

We need you. Or your proxy.

As always, we need a quorum of 25% of the 193 members (49), or their proxies, to officially hold the meeting. Proxies will be distributed by hand and will also be available for download on the WWE website.

To proceed with the process of updating the bylaws (we’d like to update them in the next few months), we’ll need a simple majority of members—50% plus one, which is 98 votes.

Update: You may download a proxy.
