General Manager Message

July means fun and family in StillWaters. Many families make their way to our community around the fourth of July. It is a great time to be on the lake and enjoying all StillWaters has to offer. Please be careful driving in our community. More people will be out walking, running, biking, and just enjoying StillWaters.

Pineview Pool, located adjacent to the SWRA Centre, is a great place to cool off on a hot July day. The pool renovations have been completed. Eligible owners can access the pool by using their electronic gate card. The electronic gate card also allows access to the tennis/pickleball courts. Please contact the SWRA office if you do not have one of the new electronic gate cards.

Fireworks are always a favorite on July 4th but remember fireworks are not allowed in StillWaters. The Lake Martin Amphitheater located at 8878 Kowaliga Road, Eclectic, AL 36024, aka The AMP, starts its July 4th program at 5:45pm with fireworks around 9pm. You can go by car or boat to enjoy the fireworks. For those who have access to a boat, just ride around the Blue Creek area of Lake Martin and you will see plenty of fireworks.

The Tallapoosa Sheriff’s department will be on patrol at StillWaters beginning July 3rd through July 7th. They will write tickets for traffic violations and help maintain control of people who are in violation of rules. You may see a patrol car parked at different locations throughout the community, should you have a need please approach them and ask for assistance.

Parking is always an issue during the July 4th holiday. Please remember trailers, boats, and vehicles cannot be parked on the side of a road. Trailers parked on the side of a road or any other common area may be booted and the owner will pay a fine to have the boot removed. Owners can park extra vehicles in designated parking lots at the Welcome Centre or SWRA Centre.

Remember to register your golf cart or utility vehicle with SWRA. All golf carts and utility vehicles must comply with SWRA policy which requires brake lights, turn signal lights, tail lights, and headlights. A window decal is required to be displayed on the front windshield of all golf carts and utility vehicles. Those not displaying a StillWaters window decal may be removed from common property.

Take a walk around our community, play a round of golf at StillWaters Golf Club, take a dip in the pool, check out the live music at Copper’s Grill and enjoy the July 4th holiday. Take a break from everyday worries, they will still be there after your time off. I hope everyone has a great July 4th and rest of the summer.

Kevin Eason, General Manager

General Manager Message (2)

From the General Manager

August is here! We had a hot dry July in StillWaters and the long term forecast for August is the same. Thankfully, we have Lake Martin and the SWRA pool to cool off in during these hot summer days.It has been hot but we have had a great summer at StillWaters and we are looking forward to rest of the season.

The family fun festival held at Moonbrook Park last month was a blast. The children and a few parents enjoyed the water slides; while the DJ and local singers entertained everyone throughout the day. The Neighborhood Council did a great job with the concessions and the Still Waters Volunteer Fire Department firetruck rides were a big hit. Make sure you take a look at the pictures from the festival that are in this newsletter.

The StillWaters Residential Association Board of Directors has adopted a new golf cart policy to help improve the safety of our roads. The new policy is included in this newsletter. This policy will go into effect January 1, 2017 but friendly reminders will be given out to violators starting September 1, 2016. This new policy is designed to help reduce the number of accidents involving golf carts and other motorized vehicles on StillWaters roads. All of the roads in StillWaters are privately owned by SWRA and it is the responsibility of SWRA to make those roads as safe as possible for all property owners.

Recently an eflash was sent warning StillWaters property owners of several alleged scams that are circulating around our area. A copy of that eflash is printed in this newsletter. After the eflash warning was sent, a few StillWaters property owners contacted the SWRA office informing me they had been contacted by someone claiming to be from StillWaters. SWRA will never contact a property owner by phone and request a credit card number. Anytime you are in doubt of the validity of a phone call from someone claiming to be from StillWaters, simply ask them for a phone number, then hang up and call that number, if we do not answer then it is not a legitimate phone call.

The extremely dry weather conditions over the past couple of months has created a fire hazard condition in our community. Please do not burn debris or have any other outdoor fires during this drier than normal season. You must contact the Still Waters Volunteer Fire Department at 256-825-0582 to obtain a burn permit before starting an outdoor fire. As a reminder, fireworks are not allowed in StillWaters because they are a fire hazard. Thank you for helping keep our forest safe.

Most local schools start back the first part of August. The school buses and school children will be back on the roads in StillWaters. Please obey all speed limit signs and never go around a stopped school bus.

This will be the first year that Alabama Power Company plans to follow the new water level guidelines for Lake Martin. The new guidelines call for a longer period of full pool for Lake Martin provided there is sufficient rain fall to replenish the lake. Now is the time to visit Harbor Pointe Marina and get a great deal on a new boat to enjoy the extended lake season. Go see Lee Lewis and his staff at Harbor Pointe Marina and check out all the great deals.
