All Three Westwood Pools will open on Saturday, May 23, 2020, as originally scheduled, with the following conditions to support the Governors Executive Order and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) guidelines for social distancing:

  • Updated June 4, 2020 in response to the most recent Governor’s Executive Order.

The number of people permitted entry to the pool area will be limited to 50% of each pool’s capacity.

  • Nickaburr Creek Pool Limit: 22 in pool area
  • Oak Bluff Pool Limit: 22 in pool area
  • Westwood North Pool Limit: 45 in pool area

Entrance will be denied if your party will result in the above limits being exceeded.

If capacity is reached, a one (1) hour time limit will be imposed from time of arrival.

  • Entrance will be limited to those having a valid Recreation ID (age 14 and above) and immediate members of your household under 14.

This year, to reduce traffic in the office, the requirement to renew Recreation IDs was waived.   Valid Recreation IDs will be the color orange and will have one or two punches.   Contact the office if you do not have a valid Recreation ID.

Due to the capacity restrictions, pool parties will be suspended regardless of the number of attendees.

We will continue to monitor the requirements and guidance provided by Federal, State and County government regarding swimming pool use during the COVID-19 pandemic and will provide updates as they become available.

Notice – Annual Meeting / Election Postponed

Our annual members’ meeting/election was originally scheduled for June 14, 2020. However, in light of the growing concern about COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) in the United States and globally, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and other public health officials have recommended cancelling large, in-person gatherings for the next several weeks.

Westwood LOA is subject to federal, state, and local law as well as the legal mandates of the landowners’ association’s covenants that currently preclude our ability to hold our annual meeting, which requires over ten (10) persons in attendance, with the certainty of location and compliance with the law.

As a result, Westwood LOA is postponing the date of the annual members’ meeting/election from its current scheduled date of June 14, 2020.  While moving to a virtual or hybrid meeting, was considered, we determined that the best course of action is to postpone the annual meeting.  Tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020.

 

Contacting Local Law Enforcement:

  • For Emergencies call 911
  • For non-Emergencies call the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department at (936) 760-5800.  The Sheriff’s Department will dispatch a Sheriff’s Deputy or Precinct 5 Constable to respond to your call.
