12-08-2013 The Bishop Company will be mailing out the payment coupons for 2014. Please keep them available to make payments monthly, quarterly or annually. Contact the Bishop Company (see tab) if you do not received yours. The Stoneridge POA appreciates that members dues are paid in a timely manner, so that our Association can meet their financial obligations for the things we enjoy in the neighborhood.
2. When leaving town for an extended period, have a trusted friend, neighbor or family member take care of your home. Ask them to pick up your mail, newspapers and other deliveries.
3. Notify your police department when you’re planning an extended absence, and they will routinely check your property. Also, don’t tell people you will be away. Stoneridge offers a Close Patrol Check by Pct. 2 Constables (Find links under Crimewatch Tab and below)
4. Avoid displaying gifts where they can be seen from outside your home through a window or doorway. Leave burglars guessing at what they will find and where to find them.
5. If possible, have packages delivered to a neighbor if you’re not home. Deliveries left outside are easily stolen by thieves, and they also draw unwanted attention to your home.
6. Elaborate and or expensive outdoor Christmas decorations are often stolen right from your property. You should consider installing simpler and cheaper outside decorations.
7. Do not decorate your windows to the point that your view to the outside of your home is obscured. You need a clear view of your property.
8. Dispose of packaging for expensive items discreetly. Thieves can spot something you’ve discarded and target your home for their next burglary or theft.
11-24-2013 Just a reminder that the Thanksgiving and Christmas season is just around the corner. Unfortunately this is also the season that criminals plan to work overtime too. Please keep an eye out for suspicious activity and report it immediately by calling 911. The Stoneridge Crime Watch in close association with the Travis County Constable Office Precinct 2, is excited to offer a valuable service to the residents of our Stoneridge neighborhood. Constable Sgt. Kevin Ward, Stoneridge Crimewatch Coordinator is offering a Close Patrol Request that goes directly to Sgt. Ward in Travis County Constable Office Pct. 2, that will enable Travis County Constables to provide added drive by patrols for residents that are on vacation, or have other security concerns. The officers will be able to pay more particular attention to a residence and make additional random drive by patrols. To initiate a patrol, a Close Patrol Request can be downloaded and filled out and then emailed directly to Sgt. Ward email@example.com in order to begin this service. This information will ONLY be shared with Sgt. Ward, and the Constable Precinct 2 Officers! Security is paramount and personal information is not jeopardized. We appreciate Sgt. Ward stepping up and taking our Crimewatch to a much higher level of vigilance.
OMG!!OMG!! I received a notice from the Stoneridge Property Owners Association that I am in violation of the POA deed restrictions. What am I going to do??
10-31-2013 The Stoneridge National Night Out 2013 was once again a wonderful success. Several dozen of our neighbors came out to meet one another and greet the members of the Travis County Sheriff Department, Travis County Constables of Pct 2, and Travis County ESD Fire Department. A special thanks to Linda Jackson, Stoneridge POA President for another well planned event. The food was great (all gone) and meeting all of the neighbors was great. This is how we send a message to criminals letting them know we are organized and watching out for each other! Once again, the message we all can take away is "If something doesn't look right at our neighbors house, Call 911 and have law enforcement make sure all is well" We Love Our Neighbors!
A special thanks to Sgt. Kevin Ward, Pct 2 for his invaluable efforts in making this NNO 2013 Stoneridge a tremendous success. Sgt.Ward organized the bounce house, Deputy presence and the Pflugerville Fire Dept.. ESD #2 engine to visit our neighborhood. Thanks so much Kevin!

7-09-2013 The Stoneridge POA Annual Meeting was held on May 14, 2013. The meeting was held with unfortunately only a few of the membership present. Major items of discussion included a presentation from the landscape committee with suggestions for improvement to the entrance beds and curb areas of the neighborhood. The landscape committee had met several weeks before the meeting, to discuss the areas of concern. They walked the areas with Proscape, the landscaping company to solicit ideas for improvement. The bid proposals were within the budget designated for the common area improvement and approved on voice vote. There was also a discussion to move the Association towards a web based Architectural Committee. Since there were no volunteers to serve on the committee, the Board has recommended that the Association move toward a web based approval method. A form will be available on the web site soon to complete and submit to the Bishop Company, the property management company for the Association. The Bishop Company will in turn submit the proposal for any construction and improvements to the entire POA Board members for their comments and approval. This should streamline the approval process and provide for an rapid response to requests for construction. There will be a link on the Architect.Cmte. tab on the website soon to submit the improvement approval. The Annual meeting minutes are also now posted on the Meetings tab of the website.
5-01-2013 The Stoneridge POA will be holding the Association's Annual Meeting on May 14, 2013, 6:30pm at the Wells Branch Community Library. Various items to be discussed will include the financial summary of the Association, landscaping and other neighborhood issues. Agenda Annual Meeting 2013 The Annual Election of Officers will also be held during the meeting. All current property owners are encouraged to participate in the Election of Officers. If any property owner is interested in serving as a Board Director (3) or as an Officer of the Association, please contact the website- firstname.lastname@example.org or Board President email@example.com in order to be placed on the ballot. All property owners are encouraged to participate and make a difference in our neighborhood.
3-22-2013 The repairs on the walls are now complete. The work was performed in a timely manner and completely within the budget allocated. Frolick Masonry was able to replace the tops of the collapsed walls and also repaired several of the front stonework pieces that had become loose at no extra charge. The "WB" medallions all had to be removed and completely restored. Two of the three medallions had split apart and needed to be sanded down to bare wood, re-glued, painted and sealed and the work should last for many years to come. Thanks to Dan Ernst for taking on the task, at no charge to the Association. Spring has arrived and the flowers are already in bloom. The landscape committee will be meeting soon to present recommendations to the Board for the coming year. The goal is of course to provide a water saving landscape that can stay within the budget of the Association.
2-8-2013 The Stoneridge POA Quarterly Meeting was held on Thursday Feb. 7, 2013. The complete minutes will be posted in the coming days. Major items of discussion included the MUD/ Travis County Water and Wastewater construction, in the east Camas Dr. and north Bescott Dr. cul-de-sacs. The connections have been made but the damage to the street and to the fence on Camas Dr. remain. The County is aware of our concerns and the Board will continue to work with the MUD and Travis County to insure the area is returned to appropriate condition. Another item discussed was the need to repair the collapse and failing tops to the entrance walls on Cervin Dr. and Ploverville Dr. The Board consulted four companies for bids to repair three top of walls and reset the WB medallions back into position. Two completed bids were considered during the meeting and contract was awarded to Frolick Masonry, after review of price and positive work references. The work should commence in the coming week or so with repairs completed in 4-5 days. The final repairs should make all 4 walls solid for years to come. The neighbors affected by the repair will be contacted to notify them of construction dates.
