Pratt Homes Creek Side Villas Transitioned to Residents

Pratt Homes transitioned control of their Creek Side Villas at Victor Gardens Homeowners Association (sub-association) to the homeowners on March 20.  The new homeowner board has not decided yet who will represent them at the master level yet but they are aware of the April 9 meeting and will be sending someone to the meeting.

Dangerous Trees Will Be Removed

There are some large dead/dying cottonwood trees on Master Association property near Val Jean Blvd. and Victor Hugo Blvd.  The size of the trees, along with their condition and proximity is a concern for nearby homes and children playing in the area.  The Master Board has tasked Treecology to trim and remove the affected trees.  Work will start on Monday, March 31st.

Vacant Lots North of Frenchman Road

The Master Association has been contacted by attorneys representing DK Resource Group.  They are the group that bought Outlot A and B and Lot 1 Block 1, VG North Village 5th Addition.  Those are empty, foreclosed lots north of VG's clock tower.  They have written that they do not intend to join the VG Association.  In the letter, they describe the interest in converting those properties into single family homes.  They have also asked the Board to consider allowing use of VG's amenities for their future residents, for a fee.
