On July 21, while inspecting a fire in Unit 12 with the POA President and firefighters, Tom McCulley succumbed to a terminal heart attack. Our prayers are with his family and friends in their loss. Tom, a Captain in the Army during the Viet Nam conflict, will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Details of his life may be read here.
County Judge Paul Pape came to the POA monthly meeting this April, and discussed the process for having trees removed from our lots AT NO COST TO THE LOT OWNER.
The first step is to fill out and submit a form to the Lost Pines Habitat Conservation administrator at Bastrop County. For your convenience I have developed a fillable form that you can download, fill out, and then submit to Colton Stabeno, at the County. His number is 512-332-7284.
After doing this, you can contact Go Green International, and fill out their form on-line.
We are hoping that everyone who has dead trees on their property will participate in this FREE TREE REMOVAL.
All structures must be approved, in writing, by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Failure to comply with this Covenant requirement can result in SUBSTANTIAL FINES. A permit must be filed and approved, in writing, by the ACC before construction begins.
Permit fees are $500 for new homes or additions to living areas. While an approved permit is required for all structures, there is no charge for permitting additional, non-living area, structures. This includes swimming pools, fences, retaining walls, driveways, storage buildings, patio/deck additions above ground level, to mention a few.
Failure to secure a permit before starting construction will incur another $1,000 fine. If the Property Owners’ Association is forced the hire a lawyer to enforce compliance, the lot owner will be additionally charged for all legal costs with a minimum charge of $1,500 for legal fees. This legal fee applies to all enforcement actions, whether for new construction or simple compliance with the Covenants by existing homeowners.
Drought hardy Loblolly pine should be available in January 2013. Please DO NOT plant any other variety of pine in the Lost Pines ecoregion!
