Did You Know.........
CTSUD Update:
The CTSUD logo and the Court of Appeals logo below contain links to a copy of SB 248, which passed and was signed by the Governor. The bill authorizing the dissolution of CTSUD, but due to the pending litigation, and opposition to the Legislation by the Bell County contingent, the Board cannot vote on dissolution prior to the earlier of: 1) August 31, 2019; or 2) after a settlement of the pending litigation. Nevertheless, it was a huge victory to get the Bill passed.
We received a uniformly favorable decision from the Third Court of Appeals, which entirely supported CTSUD and the City regarding on the appropriateness and legality of the transaction (Court of Appeals Logo). The Bell Co folks have filed a motion for rehearing with the court and, to date, I have not seen any ruling on the motion (and do not expect it to be granted).  
**Update**  July 12, 2017 the Third District Court of Appeals denied the request for rehearing.
Neighborhood Security:
Your board wanted to make you aware that the sometimes cruel world has found our little slice of heaven know as Shady Oaks.
Within the last 30 days there have been two occurrences (that we know of) that have necessitated calling out law enforcement. 
One occurred on Buena Vista when a resident discovered that a burglary attempt was made on their property.  The perpetrator was brazen enough to actually take a drill to a lock.
In another situation residents on Silverado were questioned by law enforcement regarding a mid 20’s white male that may have been prowling the streets in the middle of the night.  Apparently this individual prowls Sun City as well and may be hopping the fence into our neighborhood.
What can we do?
Be neighborly and vigilant – look out for yourself and your neighbors. Also, let a board member know if you’ve been victimized.  If we hear of enough occurrences we can ask law enforcement to enhance their patrols of our subdivision and/or look into formalizing a neighborhood watch group.
We regret having to send out this type of news, but better to be aware than not.
Insect Problem:
Some of our neighbors believe they have a Twig Girdling Beetle‚Äč problem which can infect your oaks trees.  If you want to learn more about this problem please click here. 
Our beautiful neighborhood is experiencing an ongoing problem of reckless driving.  This is no small matter as there have been some near misses of cars vs. cars and cars vs. pedestrians.  Please slow down!  In the spirit of neighborliness and safety, watch for other drivers and pedestrians. Pay careful attention as you leave your driveways.
Speed limits are posted on the community streets as either 25 mph or 30 mph.  Our own residents have been observed going in excess of 50 mph on Oak Branch Drive and exceeding limits on the side streets as well.  These offenders are not contractors or visitors. 
The consequences of an accident are, at best, costly and time consuming for repairs; at worst, a life could be lost.  Slow down and drive like you live here.
