The Wildwood at Oakcrest Community includes a number of committees that members volunteer for in service to the community.
The Advisory Committee provides community input to the board.
Meetings are on the second Wednesday of every other month from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Community Center.
Homeowners are welcome to attend.
The Architectural Review Committee reviews applications from homeowners to ensure that the proposed changes are in alignment with the Homeowner Association Deed Restrictions.
The deed restrictions for the community are located on the HOA portal. Some of the documents that may be of interest include:
To request approval of a proposed project, homeowners submit an architectural request via the HOA portal.
The Board of Directors sets policy for the Homeowner Assocation. The Management Company implements that policy.
The current Homeowner Association Board consists of one representative from Friendswood Development and four owners who live in Wildwood at Oakcrest. With no lots remaining to be built, Friendswood will be relinquishing its spot in the coming months. The board is looking to expand to five members by appointing a volunteer from the community.
The Wildwood at Oakcrest Homeowners Association consists of 1187 homes. The homeowners elect the Board of Directors. The homeowners volunteer to serve on committees like the Advisory Committee, Architectural Control Committee, Social Committee, Community Outreach Committee, or the Yard of the Month Committee. The homeowners are the association! Chaparral Management Company manages the association based on policies set by the Board. The management company works for the association.
Chaparral Management provides:
The fee for these services is $2.88 per owner per month.
The Community Outreach Committee is somewhat like the National Guard Reserve. Committee members may never be called into action unless needed. The motto is neighbors helping neighbors. With regard to liability, the homewoner association makes no guarantee regarding the quality of the work. The association merely connects homeowners-in-need with community member volunteers.
If a homeowner receives a violation letter and circumstances are such that the homeowner does not have the means to address the violation, the homeowner may reach out to the committee at email@example.com. The homeowner recognizes that the committee members are volunteers, not professionals, and will perform the work to the best of their abilities.
If the Community Outreach Committee determines that it has the know-how to address the issue (e.g., mow a yard, fix a fence), the committee members will solve the problem via volunteer efforts. The committee may enlist the help of students who need community service hours.
The Social Committee organizes special events like an Easter Egg hunt or a visit from Santa to the community Clubhouse. These events improve the quality of life for the community.
The community clubhouse is now available for rental. Contact Chaparral Management via the HOA portal to inquire about availability dates. Chaparral will provide a rental agreement form. Owners in good standing provide a check for a deposit, a check for the rental/cleaning, and the completed rental agreement contract to Chaparral.
There are a few private Facebook groups such as the Wildwood Bourbon Club, Left on the Gulf, or Wildwood at Oakcrest Book Club 2021 where community members share information on related topics.
The Yard of the Month program is intended to inspire residents of Wildwood at Oakcrest to take pride in the appearance and upkeep of their yards and the exterior of their homes and to improve the appearance of our community by promoting well-kept yards. The committee walks the community looking for attractive yards and selects a winner each month.
The committee looks for attractive elements such as neatly mowed grass, pruned shrubs and trees, and yards free of debris or clutter. The complete list of attributes used in the judging process are documented on the criteria page.
The Yard of the Month prizes are provided by businesses owned or operated by members of the community. Community members can show their appreciation by supporting these businesses. See the sponsors' page for a list of businesses to frequent.
To select the Yard of the Month, committee members walk the community and take pictures of candidate yards. There is no cause for alarm if residents observe someone taking pictures of their home during daylight hours. Homeowners who have recently made improvements to their yards and would like to be considered can contact the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Recommendations of neighbors' yards are also welcome as tips on where to look are preferable to having to hunt for yards.
Since 2019, there have been winners throughout the community. View some of the beautiful front yards in the community on the winners' page.
