General Manager Message

It is officially fall but it does not feel like fall. Daily local temperatures are still in the 90’s. I miss those cooler days and crisp nights of previous fall seasons. Hopefully, October will bring cooler temperatures so we can enjoy fall and the changing colors of the leaves.

Fall means football and this year has started off with a bang. Most of the college sports teams that our area supports are having a good first part of their season. Please remember it is ok to show support by displaying your favorite sports teams’ colors, but flags and other decorations must only be temporary. All sports propaganda should be removed after each game.

With the lake season coming to an end, many boat owners are removing their boats and storing them until next year. The StillWaters covenants require all boats, trailers, etc. to be parked in a garage or carport and cannot be parked in the driveway or yard. There are several boat storage businesses located within a mile of StillWaters that offer storage space for boats and trailers. Remember to have your boat’s engine winterized before putting it up for the season. Harbor Pointe Marina located in StillWaters can winterize any type of boat motor. Give them a call at 256-825-0600 for winterization discounts.

Last month the owners of Stillwaters Golf Club sold a section of land that was part of the old Legends (closed course) golf course located along the water’s edge around the old par 3 hole #16. The new owners of the property plan to develop a new subdivision with waterfront houses and off-water houses with plans for all houses to have lake access. The SWRA Architectural Review Committee has approved the layout of the new subdivision and construction has already started. The developer has informed SWRA of plans to hold an open house type event next spring to introduce the new development to StillWaters residents. You may visit their website at https://thelandingatstillwaters.com/ for more information.

Please help SWRA keep the restrooms located at Moonbrook Park clean by reporting any unsightly conditions or if you see anyone attempting to damage the restrooms to the SWRA office. All it takes is a quick phone call to 256-825-2990. Recently there have been a few instances where it appears someone deliberately left the bathrooms in an unacceptable condition. The bathrooms are cleaned twice a week. Any additional cleaning results in extra cost to SWRA.

In an effort to keep property owners more informed. I will hold a regular scheduled open meeting for all property owners in good standing with the association starting on Tuesday, October 15th from 5pm until 7pm at the SWRA Community Room located at 1816 StillWaters Drive. This will be a time when owners can ask the General Manager questions and obtain explanations of any concerns. This will give owners who work during the day a chance to talk with the General Manager and give me time to answer your specific questions instead of during busy office hours. Please read more about this meeting in this newsletter.

Fall is a great time to brush up on your golf game. Get out and enjoy a round of golf at StillWaters Golf Club and end your day with a great meal at Copper’s Grill.
