  • Safety & Security in The Cove

    This is our community, and we want to keep it safe! People make the difference. One of the main reasons people prefer living in a subdivision is the sense of security it can provide. When neighbors are nearby, and especially when we get to know our neighbors, we might even ask them to keep an eye out when we are away and sometimes, we might even take them for granted without meaning to do so, expecting this will happen even when we do not ask. If we are not home, our expectation is that they will notice when something appears out of the ordinary.

     

    In addition to our neighbors keeping an eye out for one another, we have security cameras placed strategically in the subdivision, primarily at both of the entrances - one for Sections 1 and 3 and one for Section 2. The cameras have the capability of having unlimited users (viewers) so send an email to forestcovepb@gmail.com or complete the form below if you are interested and want to have access to these cameras - you too can watch all the cars as they come and go in our subdivision. Only property owners will be given access.
     
    Please let the Board of Directors know if you are interested in heading up or participating in a Neighborhood Watch committee. Or, if you have other ideas to keep our community safe.
     
    You can email the Board at forestcovepb@gmail.com or by completing the form below.

    Your Volunteer Board of Directors/Officers Respectively Requests That...

    You do not verbally present or send ugly, threatening, foul-mouthed emails, letters, or any other offensive communication to any member of the (volunteer) Board or any of your neighbors for that matter. These altercations are recorded and provided to the proper authorities. The Board is always open for civil discussion and will assist however possible, including helping to find a solution that will work for everyone. Bring your ideas!

     

    Most of the time - security costs money. Security companies generally charge around $30 per month or $360 per year. In the Forest Cove POA, each property owner pays $100.00 per lot per year. For this we provide the following services:
    • Financial Management of POA Dues
    • Maintaining common areas throughout the subdivision which helps to keeps our community attractive and contributes to safety.
    • Community communications via email and a well- and frequently maintained website.
    • Installing and maintenance of security devices.
    • Overseeing installation of streetlights - another security measure.
    • Installing and maintenance of street signs.
    • Maintaining the pier.
    • Maintaining the foot bridge between Section 3 and Section 2.
    • Overseeing trimming of trees and maintaining POA common grounds.
    • Paying all utilities.
    • Booking and maintaining the clubhouse.
    • Ensuring Bylaws and Deed Restrictions are kept current according to Texas State Laws.
    • Invoicing annually for POA Maintenance fees.
    • Collections of past due maintenance fees, including court appearances, as necessary.
    • Major overhaul of POA bulkheads. In 2021, this was a $30,000 expense to the POA. The alternative is to have our land fall into the lake. The team of Board-led volunteers helped spread the dirt and lay the sod in time for our 4th of July Celebration.
    • And many more items not mentioned here. Join us at our quarterly POA meetings to learn more and to present your ideas for a better community.
    The Board highly encourages each one of you to secure your personal environments which can be done with lock and key, cameras, or however you deem necessary. Your neighbor is not always going to be home and driving through an entrance to Sections 1 &3 or Section 2 is only one way to access the community, bypassing the strategically placed cameras.

     

    Thank you!
