Transition Meeting Notice

This month The Villages of Woodland Springs HOA is transitioning from a Declarant-controlled community to Homeowner controlled. While most of the changes will be unnoticeable, one major change is that the final three Declarant controlled director seats will be vacated and be filled by seven (7) homeowners to achieve a full, seven (7) person Homeowner Board of Directors.

If you are able to attend in person, you will be able to cast a ballot. The meeting will be held at the Amenity Center, 12209 Timberland Blvd, Fort Worth, Texas 76244, on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at 6:30 p.m.

You may learn more about the nineteen (19) candidates running for the seven (7) positions by reading their Notice of Transition Meeting (on pages 2-9).

We must have at least 10% of the owners represented in person or by proxy in order to hold the election. Your assistance is needed to ensure the HOA makes quorum for the annual meeting. If you are not going to be able to attend the meeting in person, please forward your signed proxy to vows.admin@fsresidential.com.

Rules of drop off center are same as the other Fort Worth Drop Off stations. Drop-off stations are open to Fort Worth homeowners and some renters for disposal of trash, brush, recyclables, household chemicals and donated items. To use a drop-off station, show a recent Fort Worth water bill or current driver’s license with a Fort Worth address to prove you have an active sanitation account. Renters with a Fort Worth address may use drop-off stations if they have a current Fort Worth water bill. Apartment renters may use the stations for recyclables only. North Service Center will officially open in 2018 but this portion is open! This is part of the 2014 Bond Package.

The drop off center officially opens 8/21 per the city website, but it’s accepting items now thru their ‘soft’ opening.
