One of our fun, adult social activities is the Neighborhood Happy Hour, usually held on the last Thursday each month. Watch NextDoor for announcements for the time and place.
Each year we have a Halloween Party on October 31 and in December our Holiday Party. Watch for messages about these two events on Next Door and here.
Because of Covid-19 concerns and City of Austin policies and recommendations, we will not have the HOA-sponsored Halloween party this October.
The Christmas/holiday party in December is currently on hold pending COVID-19 status.
NOTICE: Because of the Cornavirus situation, the October 2020 garage sale has been cancelled.
Twice each year the HOA sponsors community garage sales, the first Saturday in May and the first Saturday in October. These are the same dates as the River Place neighborhood sales. Although residents can have sales at other times, we encourage them on these dates to maximize sales traffic opportunities.
The HOA places ads on Next Door and Craigslist for these dates and puts signs at the City Park Road and Narrow Ridge entrances to Westminster Glen. Residents can place additional signs at their homes and at intersections as needed. Please remove the signs after the sales.
In June the HOA Board of Directors approved a revision to the ACC Rules and Regulations that had been prepared and presented by the Architectural Control Committee. The revision takes into account changes in Texas HOA law and situations that the ACC has addressed in recent years. They do not replace the CC&Rs, but provide procedures and more definition to help insure consistent application of the CC&Rs. Before starting major projects, such as homes, additions or structures, the ACC suggests you and your contractor refer to the Rules. Click here to view the new document.
In November, 2017, the Travis County bond proposal that included money for a sidewalk along Westminster Glen Avenue was approved by the voters. The sidewalk provides a major improvement in safety for the many residents, including schoolchildren, that walk along the street, and bring a great new amenity to our neighborhood. At the end of May, 2020, the project was declared complete by Travis County. The HOA thanks all of the residents along Westminster Glen Avenue for their patience and understanding during the construction process.
Our new West Entrance sign has been installed. The HOA Board of Directors approved the construction of the monument-style sign at the west entrance to the subdivision along Narrow Ridge. The sign is similar to the one at the City Park entrance, but smaller.
We had these objectives for the project:
To improve the awareness of Westminster Glen Estates as a distinct subdivision (separate from River Place),
To enhance the value of the neighborhood “brand” for the benefit of homeowners’ properties, and
To help reduce speeding (hopefully).
The sign is located on Travis County right-of-way; therefore, a license and permit from the county were required.
There is no electrical or water service at the site so we've installed an off-grid solar lighting system and minimal, xeric landscaping.
