Monthly HOA Meetings
Our Woodwind Lakes HOA meetings are scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Windfern MUD building at Gessner at Mauna Loa. The meetings start at 5:30 PM sharp.
We start at this time to be able to discuss important topics and issues to our community. We realize this early time does not work for many residents for a variety of reasons, but at around 7:00 PM we have 30 minutes of “open discussion” for any resident wishing to address the HOA Board.
If you are not able to attend the meetings the meeting notes are posted on our website, www.woodwindlakes.us
Woodwind Lakes Sinkholes Update
Woodwind Lakes HOA (Ray Pavia), MUD 261 (Larry Goldberg & Jason Van Loo), TOPS ( Nathan White) and Greater Houston Landscape (Ryan Patterson)are working closely together to determine the cause of the sinkholes and the sinkholes will be repaired as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and support.
MUD #261 Board met on 1-14-16 and discussed erosion issues at Lake 1. Yesterday, a TOPS representative (Nathan White, cc'd), the District Engineer and a Geotechnical Engineer met at Lake 1 to review the sinkholes. Preliminary indications are that the soil around Lake 1 is high in sodium. High sodium levels may result in the erosion issues the Lake(s) is/are currently experiencing. The Board and District Engineer are waiting on the final report from the Geotechnical Engineer.
Aside from soil composition concerns, loss of back-slope swale and inadequate drainage may also be a factor. As you are likely aware, the MUD recently took bids to repair the back-slope swale in the area behind and adjacent to the waterfall on Lake 2 where a sinkhole was identified and repaired last year. The District Engineer suggested, and the Board agreed, to allow the contractor the Board will likely retain for Lake 2 to review the drainage situation at Lake 1. Additional swale work to address identified drainage issues on Lake 1 will be undertaken if warranted following this evaluation.
While the above work is ongoing, the Board agreed that in the interim TOPS would fill the identified holes on Lake 1 as a temporary safety measure. A more permanent fill/fix will be undertaken at a later date if necessary using appropriate soil fill mixtures following the completion of the work noted above and identification of what the Board hopes to be a long-term solution to this issue.
The waterfall sink holes repair should begin in about two weeks. MUD had gotten behind do to work load, and we were next on the schedule.(11/1/2016)
