I would love to see all this data that shows HOAs raise home values.

Didn't Westcreek send out an email admitting one of their notices in this case was wrong?

I don't want someone else's problems bringing down my property value.

The Westcreek HOA addressed this on their website:

Week in Westcreek June 11th – 17th, 2012 | Villages of Westcreek - San Antonio, Texas

Here's another thought. If you have some lame issue with the HOA, I suggest that you NOT take it up with the media. You're really not helping yourself and you're not doing anything POSITIVE for the reputation of the neighborhood or our collective property values. Be glad you have an ACTIVE owner's association. They made a mistake and apologized, so move on. No, I do not work for the HOA and I'm not on any boards or committees.

In driving through the Villages of Westcreek some of the roads are being paved. Will the entire neighborhood be done or just certain sections?

I think the WC HOA said 85 roads in our area, so that should cover almost all roads in WC.

Paved? To me, it looks like they're just dropping gravel ( they did the same thing a few years back on Military and Westcreek Oaks).

According to Bexar County Public Works Department:

"Most primary Bexar County streets and roads regularly (every 6-7 years) have a seal coat applied to the pavement. This is a preventive maintenance activity designed to prolong the "lifespan" and delay the need for reconstruction of existing County streets and roads. Residential and subdivision streets are resurfaced less often based on traffic volumes, pavement conditions, and available funding."

So, a "seal coat" would be a better description.

The biggest problem I have is unequal enforcement of the rules. We had a nice looking cabana on our deck for years but was informed by the HOA that it was against the rules and it had to go. While you're driving along military you can seen them in peoples back yards, and they've had them for YEARS longer than we did.
"rules" aren't deed restrictions. They can make up "rules" regarding their own property but "rules" about your backyard are another story.

If they were trying to suggest you were in violation of some deed restriction, you should be aware that there is a 4 year statute of limitations regarding enforcement of deed restrictions. The 4 years starts at the time of the alleged violation not at the time that the management company sends out a letter. If the HOA has not sued within 4 years of when you built the cabana, the statute of limitations is an absolute defense to their claim.

As a former Resident of WC (1999 to 2010) this is a little stupid. If you just put it up without the Property Improvement Form I could appreciate their Enforcement a little better. Westcreek is a fine place to live but the HOA is as only as good as the Resident's who are the HOA. Fight this one.
Although we don't like it and some do not accept it the same ''Rules" apply to the Backyards. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Why is the bridge being widened? I can already see the traffic clusters in the future. Potranco traffic will even be worse!
