ROUND ROCK RANCH

Official Newsletter for the Residents of Round Rock Ranch October 2012

Dear RR Residents, Unfortunately we are changing property management companies this month. Fortunately we are changing quickly before any more issues arise and we are cutting our losses before they become any larger. We will do everything possible to make this transition as quick and painless as possible. If you have any questions or problems during this time, please contact one of us on the b o a r d i m m e d i a t e l y. W i t h o u t y o u r communication we cannot help. You as a resident of Round Rock Ranch can help in many ways. When your notice comes with the new management information, please take the time to fill out and return the information request form promptly. This will help our new property manager get us set up, on line, and able to know us quicker and better. Please bring your property into compliance within the rules and regulations for our subdivision. If you have broken fence slats that are visible from the front of your property, please replace or repair them. If you have a front yard full of weeds or dirt, plant some grass or submit landscaping plans (Continued on Page 3)

ROUND ROCK RANCH Yard Improvements

Dear RRR Residents - (Continued from Cover Page) for approval with the ACC. If you have a satellite dish on the front of your property, you will need to have it relocated or provide ACC approval to the new property manager. If you store your trash cans on the side of your property, they must be screened and ACC approval is required for this as well. Dead shrubbery and trees that are visible from the front of your property must beremoved. Please correct these violations to avoid future notices and fines and to help keep our HOA dues low. Contact one of your board members or Architectural Control Chairperson should you have any questions concerning these matters. One of our problems with property management companies in the past has been their inconsistency in enforcing Deed Restrictions and CC & R’s. Whether you rent or own your home, you are responsible for the upkeep and appearance of the front of your property. Your cooperation will help ensure the investment that we share here in Round Rock Ranch. Thank you for your support and helping make Round Rock Ranch a better place to live! Lea Beth Munoz President – RRR HOA

 Fellow RRR Neighbors, I want to congratulate those that have been working to improve their yards and make them less water dependant. We have  approved several requests for improvements that include rocks, mulch and stone. Now is a great time to begin this process in preparation for next year. When you are preparing your ACC Request it is pertinent that you include: • A Plot Plan- Everyone should have gotten one of these with their “closing paperwork” when they purchased their home. If you do not have one of these you can obtain one through the Williamson County Appraisal District • Photos of the area that you will be changing • Photos of the items….rock, shed, shrubs …you will be adding. These are easy to obtain online or with a camera. • Most Importantly: A copy of the ACC request form • Send all of the above items  via fax or email to the property management company. • Any  project   that changes the look of your home needs to be approved by the ACC.  Let me know if you have trouble. These items are easy to do and will likely help you think through your plans. Paul Yehl, ACC Chairman Paul.T.Yehl@gmail.com

ROUND ROCK RANCH Halloween Health and Safety Tips

For many people, autumn events like Halloween and Harvest Day are fun times to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, attend parties, and eat yummy treats. These events are also opportunities to provide nutritious snacks, get physical activity, and focus on safety. Below are tips to help make the festivities fun and safe for trick-or-treaters and party guests.

Going trick-or-treating? Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible. Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.

 

Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.   Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation. Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible. Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses. Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls. Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.

ROUND ROCK RANCH ENCLAVE MANAGEMENT CHANGE The Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to inform you of a change in management.  Our current management company, Profcam1, will be closing their business operations as a management company effective August 31, 2012. While this may appear as if you the homeowner are subjected to yet another change in management companies, the Board of Directors is happy to announce that Preferred Association Management Company (PAMco) has been hired to take over operations effective immediately (August 1, 2012). PAMco is purchasing the business operations of Profcam1.  What this means to you is that this change in management companies will have little if any change to you.  PAMco will be using the same computer system, the same account numbers and the same banks as currently being used. You will not have to re-submit any banking information in order to be set up on an auto draft for your assessments.  The change that you will have to note is the new mailing address and phone number.  That information can be found below. Doug Plas, the owner of PAMco, will be the new association manager.   His assistant is Maryann Mosier.   Both Doug and

Maryann can be reached via phone at 512-918-8100.  Doug’s email address is dplas@pamcotx.com  and Maryann’s email address is mmosier@pamcotx.com. It is PAMco’s goal to make this change as seamless as possible. Please update your records with the new address and phone number: The Enclave of Round Rock Ranch HOA  P.O. Box 200145 Austin, TX. 78720 (512) 918-8100     Fax (512) 918-8121 Should you have any questions regarding this change, please feel free to contact PAMco. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.   Sincerely, Board of Directors The Enclave of Round Rock Ranch HOA
