We ask that you attend at least one meeting prior to the
Mill Sound Wall
to a lot of dedicated work by Jim Upham, ten homeowners on North
Deerfoot have signed easements for building the sound wall along
their property. WCA Director, Deborah Sargeant, proposed
that the $75,000 in utility relocation costs be added to the
WCA budget, which was approved unanimously. This motion
eliminated one more of the final roadblocks in getting the wall
built. We are waiting for the Woodlands Operating Company
to also sign off since they still control all of our easements.
Then there is a final review by TxDOT.
The wall has never been closer. Thanks to Jim, Deborah,
and many others who have assisted in this project.

Assessment Statement Mailed
Assessment statements will be mailed the first week of December to be received by December 8, 2007. The tax rate this year will be reduced from 41 cents to 14 cents this year as we work off a surplus that had been built up in a rainy day fund. The same will happen again next year, after that the rates will go up again.
Conference Center is Getting a Facelift
Conference center is getting a $50 million facelift and a major
remodeling. The older hotel rooms will be torn down and a new
four-story hotel will be built. In addition some private
homes will be added in the same areas and apparently in the
area in front of the WAC that formerly had hotel structures.
