Neighbors Concerned about Walking Path Damage and Safety

Motorized bikes and carts are damaging the HOA walking path and raising safety concerns among Hidden Springs Ranch residents. Damage has already disrupted the path surface to the point that repairs will be required and is most obvious where the walking path extends the Lone Wolf Court cul-de-sac to Shadywood Lane, a section that is frequently used by walkers and children.
The HOA Board of Directors wants to remind all of our members that, under Paragraph 17 of the Hidden Springs Ranch Community Facility Rules,

“No motorized vehicles (i.e. golf cart, go cart, motorcycle, etc.) are permitted on the jogging trail/walking path at any time.”

Members are urged to council family and friends to stay off the walking path (see image, courtesy of Google) when they are riding/operating motorized vehicles. While the objective of the board is to enforce HOA policies in an amicable manner, violations may result in notices, fines and/or loss of use of neighborhood amenities as outlined in the HOA’s Enforcement and Fine Policy.

Questions about this notice may be forwarded to any board member or the HOA administrator.

Controlled Burn Spreads on McGregor Property

A homeowner lost control of a controlled burn on his property in Dripping Springs this afternoon, bringing local fire officials and a brush truck to his residence.

A property owner started a controlled burn on his property this afternoon off McGregor Lane in Dripping Springs. Then, thinking the fire had not caught, he returned to his house. His neighbor called to tell him that the fire, which he thought was out, was actually raging out of control.

The homeowner, his family and the neighborhood attempted to contain the fire. By the time fire personnel arrived, the fire was mostly contained. This fire was small and contained to about 4,000 square feet. Counties around Central Texas have been receiving similar calls this weekend, as homeowners try to burn brush now that burn bans have been lifted.
