A word from the Horseshoe Bay POA

New Board.jpg


Welcome July! The Horseshoe Bay POA had a very busy June and we are excited to see positive changes take place for the betterment of our community. 

We have approved the implementation of an electronic record keeping system that will enable quick and easy access to plans and documents at the POA office.  Additionally, the selection of the first centralized kiosk for mail cluster box units location has been chosen. To address compliance violations that do not fall under city ordinances we have updated our procedures and protocol to better address our resident's concerns. Conceptual plans to improve entry ways into the different neighborhoods have been presented and we are working on implementing the improvement plans, this project will bring an aesthetic refresher to our community.

The Horseshoe Bay Property Owners' Association is excited to commemorate Independence Day on Monday, July 4 with a musical celebration! This year’s theme is CELEBRATE WITH MUSIC – The Spirit of America and we cordially invite all residents and guests to participate in the festivities. We have chosen two well deserved individuals to be our Grand Marshals, we are happy to recognize Mr. Mike Thuss as our Patriotic Grand Marshal and Mr. Bill Rives as our Music Grand Marshal. We also thank the volunteers who have signed up to help out with this celebration.

Horseshoe Bay POA Helpful Tips

The heat is on! Summer calls for sandals, shorts, swimming suits and outdoor activities but please protect your skin from harmful UV exposure. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of 30 or higher SPF and water resistant. Apply generously to exposed areas and re-apply about every two hours and immediately after swimming or sweating.

Stay hydrated in the Summer heat by sipping on water throughout the day, don’t wait until you are thirsty, drink up often. Avoid caffeinated beverages because of the diuretic effect of caffeine as it can increase water loss.  Include some water loving veggies and fruits in your diet such as watermelon, pineapple, strawberries, tomatoes and zucchini.

  •  ¼ cup of strawberry preserves at room temperature
  •  1 cup whipping cream (more or less depending on your sweetness preference)
  •  1 cup vanilla yogurt
  •  1 tablespoon of lemon zest

The Cluster Box Unit (CBU) subcommittee of the Business and Capital Projects Committee has been very busy and made key decisions in June. The first centralized kiosk location in Horseshoe Bay West is selected. Also, cost estimates for purchase of the CBUs and kiosk construction were presented at the June Board of Directors meeting and approved. Before proceeding, the HSB POA must complete administrative processes to secure the location, receive design approval, and request a permit for construction.

The HSBPOA will continue to provide updates as we move onto the next phase. Thank you for your patience and support.
