Volume 10, Number 7 July Announcements 4th of July Parade At the time this newsletter went to print, the 4th of July Parade planning was still underway. But we wanted to thank all of our wonderful volunteers in advance for their help, as well as thank everyone for coming out and celebrating the 4th of July with us!

Thank you for your cooperation. Swim Center Plaza Mail Center Parking and Fire Zone Parking During these summer months, parking can become quite overcrowded at the Swim Center Complex. As you ve probably noticed, there are several spots directly in front of the mail center which are marked Mail Pick Up Only. This is the largest of all the mail centers in Circle C and services over 900 residents. Please do not park in these spots at any time unless you are picking up your mail. Occasionally, staff will unload or load items from the HOA offices, but this is temporary only. We realize if you are visiting the Swim Center there are often no empty parking spots; please park along Escarpment or La Crosse in this situation. Despite signage, cones and notices, residents are continuing to park in the Fire Zone spaces in front of the Swim Center which are marked in red. Please do not park in this section for any length of time (even if you are just picking up or dropping off). This area must be reserved for emergency personnel only. It is for everyone s safety that we always have this space available in the case of an emergency. Vehicles may be ticketed (by the Austin Fire Department) or towed if parked in the Fire Zone.

Schlitterbahn Texas Parks Help Desk or ext.3300 Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark Help Desk or , ext Unfortunately, we received multiple reports of vandalism to cars throughout the neighborhood last month. Several, at least four, car windows were shot out on a Friday night in June in the Hansa Loop/Seneca Falls Loop area. We also received reports of the same activity off Dahlgreen Ave. and also on Walpole. Some of the cars were parked in the driveway and some on the street. One person found a pellet in their car seat. It was thought to be too big for a BB gun. Residents think it may have been a sling slot or maybe a pellet gun. The police have been informed. The following Saturday of the same weekend, a resident s car was broken into on Beatty Drive. Their car was parked in the driveway. The Sirius satellite radio and some other items were stolen. The safest place to park your vehicle is in the garage. If that is not possible for you, the next best option is parking in the driveway. Parking on the street should be your last resort, as your car is most vulnerable for vandalism in the street. Never ever leave any valuables in sight in your car. Vandalism to Cars If you have any information about these incidents, please report it to APD immediately. If anything like this happens to you, you need to report it to the police as soon as possible. Even if they are unable to help you with the situation initially, the more people that call and report these situations, the more likely the police will prioritize our neighborhood and possibly increase the amount of patrol in the area. Activities for Residents at the Community Center The Community Center offers lots of different activities that are available for Circle C residents to attend. Whether you would like your child to learn Chinese or join a fun summer camp, or maybe you are interested in taking a yoga class or a boot camp class, we ve got it! If you are interested in learning more about the activities that take place at the Community Center, please visit our website, www., go to the Amenities tab, and then click on Circle C Community Center. You can then click on Resident Activities on the left hand side to see a schedule of all the events that are open to Circle C residents. Click on an activity that you are interested in to see more details. If you have any questions or would like to register for a class, please contact the company providing the activity. Tree Stakes If you have trees that have been planted for 12 months, they are now well established, and it is time to remove the stakes and support wires. The support wires may harm your trees and restrict growth. Copyright 2013 Peel, Inc. Circle C Ranch Newsletter - July CCHOA News Scoop the Poop Dog and cat waste left on the ground is more than smelly and pollutes our water and poses a health risk for pets and people, especially children! Please remember to always Scoop the Poop and to dispose of pet waste properly! It adds up! One pile of pet waste might not seem like a lot; however, more than 215,000 dogs live in Austin, generating 100,000 pounds of waste throughout the city every day. When not disposed of properly, this waste washes into local waterways and causes problems with: Human and Pet Health Giardia Roundworms Salmonella Other viruses and parasites Water Quality Algae and aquatic weeds Reduced oxygen for fish Unsafe recreational areas for fishing or enjoying What Can I Do? 1. Bring It! Carry a scooper bag when you walk your dog. 2. Scoop It! Use the baggie like a glove, scoop the poop, invert and seal the bag. 3. Toss It! Take it home with you and throw it away. It belongs in the trash, not in your neighbor s yard or the Circle C commons areas. If someone is not cleaning up after their pet properly, you may call the City of Austin at 311. This is against their code An owner or handler shall promptly remove and sanitarily dispose of feces left on public or private property by a dog or cat being handled by the person, other than property owned by the owner or handler of the dog or cat. Deed Restrictions As reported in each month s newsletter, the HOA staff drives at least two sections of the neighborhood per month to note violations of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. These commonly include: front yard landscape maintenance (mowing, edging, free of weeds), home maintenance (paint, screens, siding) and recreational vehicles (boats, RV s, trailers) parked in the driveway. Currently, we are particularly looking for clutter and debris in driveway, yards, and along the sides of homes. The HOA is required by state law to notify owners in writing via certified mail and allow for the homeowner to request a hearing before the board of directors. If you receive a letter, please contact us at the HOA office and let us know your individual situation. We would like to work with you to bring your home into compliance. If you would like to report a violation, you can do so via our website at Check Your Window Screens As we have been driving the neighborhood, we are noting more and more window screens in need of replacement or removal. The life of the builder grade window screens is years, depending on sun exposure and many in the neighborhood are now well over that. We are seeing screens that have turned from the original dark gray/black to ash white due to extreme fraying and break down of the screen fabric. We are seeing screens that are torn or ripped, and that are wrinkled and sagging. Please check your screens and replace or remove screens that are in disrepair. Please note that if you are replacing your window screens and want to change the color of screen, you must submit an application to the Architectural Control Committee for review and approval. Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Circle C Ranch, Article VI, MAINTENANCE, Section 1 (i): Repair of exterior damages to improvements. Specifically, Window screens must be in good condition and not warped, buckled, torn, or deteriorated. Replacement screens of a different color must be reviewed by the Architectural Control Committee Check Your Fence We are seeing many fences in need of repair or full replacement. Check your fence for missing pickets, broken pickets, pickets tattered at ground level, unattached sections at the posts, unstable leaning sections. If your fence has been stained, replacement pickets must be stained to match. If you are replacing your fence with the same fence, no changes, you may do so without submitting for review. Any changes must be submitted to the Architectural Control Committee for review and approval. Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Circle C Ranch, Article VI, MAINTENANCE, Section 1(i): Repair of exterior damages to improvements Fence pickets should be in good condition, not warped, cracked or missing. If you are replacing your side and rear fence with the same fence, ACC approval is not required. If you back to a common area and your fence abuts a major boulevard, please check the fence guidelines and submit your proposed fence for review. Change in type or height of fence requires written approval from the Architectural Control Committee. 6 Circle C Ranch Newsletter - July 2013 Copyright 2013 Peel, Inc. Circle C Swim Center Submitted by Sammie Surguy DIVE-IN MOVIE Be sure to check our website (, Facebook page (facebook. com/ccaquatics) and Twitter ( regularly for dates and more information about future Dive-In Movies and other events. PRIVATE LESSONS We are pleased to welcome Audrey and Sarah M to the Circle C swimming family! Both ladies have morning availability for those of you with kiddos in camps and other fun summer activities so don t forgot to sign up for swim lessons. We have instructors available on the weekends, weekday nights, mornings and every time in-between. Visit our webpage at to learn more about the pricing of private lessons and then come to the front desk and get signed up for lessons. GROUP LESSONS Don t forget we have group lessons going on through August so now that you are back from vacation, bring the kiddos in for an evaluation and get them swimming before the end of the summer. We are excited to announce the start of a new program for the teens in the swimming community! We are looking for kids between the ages of 11 and 15 who have a passion for swimming and want to share their passion with others. We will pair them with an experienced instructor so they will learn what it s like to teach swimming lessons to all ages. It s a great way to get the kids outside and have them stay cool with the added bonus of volunteer hours that look great on a resume or any school application. Please contact Coach Amanda at for more details. WATER AEROBICS: Water exercise is for everyone! Classes combine various formats of water exercise to give you the most complete program possible. Group water aerobics classes are invigorating workouts that are noncompetitive and fun. You will see improved flexibility, strength, coordination, and endurance. Regardless of your current fitness level or physical condition, we believe you will find Water Aerobics right for you! Classes are held three times a week, April through October. When: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; 9a-10a Price: $45/month (Residents); $55/month (Non-Residents) Registration: Contact the Swim Center at to register or for any questions. Adult Masters: This program is an adult technique and conditioning class taught by Hayley McGregory. This class will teach you how to swim faster with less effort. It is for adults of all abilities. We will incorporate drills for all four strokes into structured practices that will also increase your endurance. When: Tue., Thurs., & Fri. at 7:00-8:15 a.m. Price: $50/month (Residents); $60/month (Non-Residents) Registration: Contact the Swim Center at to register or for any questions. COMMUNITY CENTER CAPACITY: The maximum capacity at the Circle C Community Center Pool is 210 persons (this includes staff and anyone within the gated pool area). The capacity is set by Health and Fire Code, and not by the Circle C HOA. Now that summer is here, it is very likely that we will often reach this capacity at the pool. When capacity is reached, entry will only be allowed on a one-out one-in basis. We will not be able to make any exceptions to this policy. So, if you are planning on spending the day at the pool, we recommend getting to the facility earlier rather than later. Thank you for your understanding.

Circle C Ranch Newsletter - July CCHOA News Kiker Beautification Committee Dedication to Circle C Landscape Submitted by Susanne Kerns On May 24th, the Kiker Beautification Committee was thrilled to dedicate one of the benches in the new Kinder-Garden area to Susan Hoover and the HOA Landscaping team as well as all of the volunteers who helped renovate this area. Susan Hoover worked closely with the Kiker Beautification Team to design a plan for creating an area that would be beautiful, functional, and environmentally friendly. The work was completed during the Kiker Earth Day Clean Up Event on April 27th where 40+ volunteers partnered with the HOA landscaping team to make the plan a reality. The entire Kiker Beautification Committee was so grateful for the help of Susan Hoover and the HOA Landscaping team and wanted to ensure that everyone who enjoyed the new KinderGarden would be aware of their hard work and has placed a plaque in their honor on one of the benches. The same morning the Kiker Beautification Committee dedicated the second bench in the KinderGarden to Ms. Nancy Dudley to commemorate her 17th and final year at Kiker. Her Kindergarten class generously donated the bench and the plaque to show their appreciation for all that she has done for Kiker over the years. If you would lik
