The rest of the 2023 meeting schedule will be posted when available.
The Westminster Glen HOA Board has unanimously approved a change with our current Management Company. Goodwin and Company have been excellent partners for the past several years, but we felt the need for a change and a fresh start heading into 2023. We have selected Preferred Association Management Company, also known as PAMco, to be our new management company. This decision was made after several months of research with other neighborhoods and management companies by your Board.
The change is effective January 1, 2023.
At the 2022 Annual Meeting on October 19, long-time board member and president Linda Salomon retired from the board. Linda has been involved with our HOA as director and president for several years and was the driving force for many of the initiatives that happened over the years, including the sidewalks along Westminster Glen Ave. We as a community are indebted to her for her service. Her tireless efforts on our behalf have helped keep Westminster Glen Estates a great place to live.
Eowyn Gorman was elected to a three year term on the board replacing Linda. Our officers and board members are listed below.
At the September 27 Board Meeting, the board voted to change the By-Laws to provide staggered three year terms for the directors. At the next annual meeting in 2023, two seats will be up for election and in 2024 the remaining two.
Chip Graves, President
Eowyn Gorman, Vice President
Reena Ubha, Secretary
Belinda Gallagher, Treasurer
Diane Love, Director
Our CCRs do not directly address Short Term Rentals (STRs); however, there are some city limitations that we fall under, and there is an additional overlay that the Board has voted to approve to protect our neighbors. To have a short-term rental in Westminster Glen, you must be licensed by the City of Austin (unless you live in phase 3, you are exempt). The city limits the number of STR licenses per neighborhood; no more licenses will be allotted when that number is hit. The additional protection that we have voted to support is that any STR in ANY phase of Westminster Glen must have a property manager or other responsible party (designee) available to address any issue within an hour. If you have an STR in Westminster Glen, you need to notify the board, and we will keep a master list with your designee's name and contact info and share it with our management company. For now, Linda Solomon will manage that list, and you can send your information to Lsalomon@me.com. If there are any complaints or disruptions by your renters, your designee must address them immediately. Failure to do so may result in fines by the HOA. We also request that you supply your immediate neighbors with the name and contact of your designee. The goal is to allow people to utilize their homes for STRs while protecting the other families and homes in our neighborhood. No one wants a bachelor party going on next door😂.
Thanks for giving us the time to sort through what is fair and legal and still protective of our lovely neighborhood.
Linda, Belinda, Reena, Ashley, and Chip😊
On December 20, 2021, the HOA Board approved a new policy to address a growing number of property improvements being undertaken without prior ACC approval. The new policy states that when the ACC becomes aware of an unapproved project, that they will issue a Stop Work email to the resident requesting that plans and other required documentation be submitted for ACC approval within 4 days or face fines from $25 to $100 per day.
The policy also includes a fine schedule for other construction-related violations.
