Bella Vista

Conveniently located in north Austin, most families rarely have the opportunity to live in such a magnificent planned community. With a swimming pool, children's play area, close-in location, hill country setting, water park, country club and golf course close by, most would think this is too good to be true. The Estates of Bella Vista is perfect for the move-up buyer that desires a stunning new home that gives the impression of being custom built with volume builder pricing.

Bella Vista gives 1st time and 2nd time move-buyers the opportunity to live in an upscale, master-planned community in a hill country setting. The Estates of Bella Vista is special and distinct from other planned communities because of its masterful design and convenient location. It has quick and easy access to Hwy 183 and is minutes away from Lakeline Mall and the Arboretum. Every home in Bella Vista has four sides of masonry, and the homesites are over-sized with exceptional hill country views. Amazingly, the homesite sizes range from 80' to 100'.

Residents can live in a luxurious community that has beautiful views and is adjacent to the well known Twin Creeks Country Club and Golf Course. The community has a swimming pool and playground for homeowners to enjoy and have a place to spend time with family and friends.

Neighborhood Watch Programs

Crime is a legitimate concern in our schools, social venues, workplaces and neighborhoods. Real or perceived, the threat of crime—from petty theft to physical violence—creates apprehension, fear and even paranoia.

Crimes occur in cities, suburban neighborhoods, small towns and rural communities. No neighborhood, including gated homeowners associations and high-end condominium communities, is immune. Crime finds victims in the very best of neighborhoods. For community association leaders and residents, the vital question is: What should—and shouldn’t—elected Boards and their managers do in response to heightened resident concerns?

There are a number of steps an elected community association Board can take,* but community association experts agree on one thing: Association Boards should proceed carefully before they decide to create, manage or formally endorse a neighborhood watch program. In fact, most association experts believe watch programs should be organized and managed by residents independent of the association. It’s one thing for an association Board to support a watch program; it’s quite another for the Board to assume responsibility for the activity.

Boards considering this issue need to ask three fundamental questions:

  • What is the extent of the association’s powers under its governing documents?
  • Does the association have the authority to establish a community watch?
  • What are the legal and ethical liabilities of an association-sponsored watch program?

These questions should be answered—definitively—before Board members or residents take formal action to establish or support a watch program. If a decision to move forward is made, leaders of the program should:

  • Contact the local police department for start-up support and guidance. Volunteers who skip this critical step can find themselves on the wrong side of the law—or worse.
  • Seek the advice of an attorney with expertise in community association law.
  • Obtain the input of an insurance professional with community association experience.
  • Create a process for recruiting only responsible volunteers who will follow all procedures.
  • Develop methods (e.g., websites and email) to keep volunteers and residents informed.
  • Continuously reinforce all procedures—including the do-not-engage rule for resident volunteers.

Steps community association boards can take to enhance security include providing safety guidance to residents; creating phone trees or text and email alerts; inviting law enforcement authorities to speak to residents about home security; installing adequate common-area lighting; incorporating safety and security into landscape design; upgrading locks and gate access; and hiring trained personnel to staff community entrance gates.
