    Twin CreeksTRIBUNE

    We would like to wish all Twin Creek residents and their family a Healthy, Prosperous and Safe 2014!


    A special THANK YOU to Curt Randa (Cedar Park Recreation & Park Director & Twin Creek resident) for installing two new signs in the Park (at the first roundabout between Dervingham Drive and Izoro Bend). The new signs are the typical and normal signs that the City Cedar Park posts in all of their parks. The information on the signs state what our park hours are here in Twin Creeks.

    The Park hours are from dawn to 10:00 p.m. Now that we have signs posted, if you see people congregating in the park after hours you are well within the law to call the sheriffs office and put in a request for them to drive to the park and ask the group to leave. We would encourage all residents to join in this effort if you see people there after the 10:00 p.m. curfew.


    Non-Emergency Sheriffs Number (512) 974-0845 and press Option #3

    Closed Patrol (512) 854-9728 - Should you be going out of town and want the sheriffs office to drive by and patrol your home, this is the number to call. Simply call the number & let them know you are going to be away from your home, give them the dates, your street address, let them know

    if ANY cars should be expected to be in the driveway, if you are leaving on lights, if you have outside dogs, etc. They will patrol your home at various times during the period of time you are away.

    Reporting Non-Working Street Lights You can email Joe DiQuinzio directly

    requested that in the subject line of your email you list Twin Creeks Neighborhood Watch and in the body of the email list the street name and the home address closest to the light pole. If the non-working light has an intersecting street close by, please list both street names.

    Additionally there is a six digit number that is about 4 - 5 foot high posted on the very front of every light pole. Taking the time to capture this number and send it along with the street name is extremely helpful for workers to identify exactly which light needs to be replaced, since all bulbs are replaced during the day time.

    For those that have a PEC account already set up. You can log into your PEC account and report the street light number here as well. Once youve signed on, look for service request then street light repair and input the six digit number. This website allows you to put in your zip code and set the mile radius you would like to receive updates from the sheriffs office concerning crimes happening in and around your neighborhood. If a crime has been reported, it will show up on typically within 24 48 hours.

    Please contact Terra Tisdale at if you are interested in volunteering to serve as a Block Captain for your street.

    Twin Creeks Country Club Celebrates 10th Anniversary

    The annexation is off for 2013 and may happen in December 2014, provided that Williamson-Travis WCID 1G and 1F (Twin Creeks) and Bella Vista MUD (the Districts) can work out the financial aspects of the Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) with the City of Cedar Park. As most of you know by now, the City of Cedar Park City Council voted to discontinue the process of the Limited Purpose Annexation for the two Water Districts in Twin Creeks and Bella Vista MUD.

    While we are all disappointed that the annexation did not occur this year, we should all encourage the City and the Board of Directors for WCID 1G and WCID 1F to work diligently to reach an agreement for the SPA terms as quickly as possible. Once the SPA is finalized, we can then move forward with another petition drive and ultimately reach the goal of the Limited Purpose Annexation by the end of 2014. If you have any questions regarding WCID 1G, James Manning has offered up his email to respond.

    There have been a lot of rumors flying around regarding tax rates for WCID 1G, as well as the ESD. I, for one, started some of these with the posting on the social media site last week after the City council meeting. That information was based on what I had been told by various individuals and I have since come to know that some of that posting was unfounded and simply not the true facts. Therefore, I would like to retract all references to any proposed/future tax rates of WCID 1G as well as the ESD. None of these are set in stone yet and until they are I will not speculate on the tax issue until rates are set or information disseminated by these two taxing entities. I offer my sincere apologies to the WCID 1G Board of Directors, the City, the ESD and most of all the Twin Creeks Residents for my hasty action.

    Sincerely,Tom Moody, PresidentTC Twin Creeks Community, Inc.

    Twin Creeks Country Club is celebrating their 10th Anniversary, an exciting milestone for one of Austins Premier Private Clubs. Twin Creeks golf course was one of the first signature courses to be designed by Fred Couples. In recognition of this milestone, Twin Creeks will be hosting several events for their members, culminating in a Black Tie New Years Eve 10 Year Celebration, to be held on December 31, 2013. The event will include live music, cocktails, heavy hors doeuvres with a balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight.

    Its exciting, at the least, to be a part of Twin Creeks Country Clubs 10-year anniversary celebration. It is rare to step onto a golf course knowing that you will leave with a positive experience, but that is exactly what you get when you play Twin Creeks, stated Kyle OBrien, PGA Head Golf Professional at Twin Creeks. The Hill Country views and variety of wildlife that reside on our property are breathtaking from the time you set foot on the course. Add that to one of the most well manicured courses in the Austin area and you see what I mean. I cant wait to see what the next 10-years have in store, OBrien stated.

    Twin Creeks Country Club opened in May of 2003, with a Grand Opening Celebration on November 10, 2003. The club was later purchased, in May of 2008, by The Dominion Golf Group. We look forward to celebrating Twin Creeks milestone with the Membership and the community, said Steven Held, President and CEO of The Dominion Golf Group, which owns and operates Twin Creeks Country Club. It is especially great to be an integral part of the Twin Creeks community.

    Twin Creeks Country Club is offering special Membership promotions and referral programs as part of the celebration. As a staff, we are dedicated to helping the Club continue to grow in a

    positive manner for the benefit of all existing and new Members, said Melissa Starnes, Membership Director at Twin Creeks. We want Twin Creeks to be the place where our Members can spend time with the people they most enjoy, and there is no better way to accomplish this than by referring their friends to join in on the fun!

    A decade of exemplary golf, tennis and fitness facilities are just a few components of Twin
