The primary mission of the Coolcrest Property Owners Association, Inc. (Coolcrest POA) is to ensure property owners’ rights and concerns are addressed and that property values are protected in accordance with deed restrictions. In recent years, the Coolcrest POA has been successful in fighting our water company to keep our rates low, shutting down illegally run businesses in a residential area, keeping a fireworks stand from opening in our neighborhood, and speed control and installation of street lights on Silver Maple. The board is also responsible for approving plans for any new construction in our neighborhood.

Several of our board members have served on the board for several years now and are ready to pass the torch. As we enter a new decade, the Coolcrest POA is looking for individuals who value our property rights and safety concerns of all our residents.

On January 21, 2020, at 7:30 PM, the following positions will be up for election at our next Coolcrest POA meeting held at the Christian Family Baptist Church, located at 1589 Grosenbacher Rd,

Classroom 1. Below is a brief description of the duties for each of the positions:

1.       President – preside over all meetings, sign all written documents approved by the board, and call meetings when necessary

2.       Vice President – act in place of the President during absence, assist the President when necessary

3.        Secretary – keep record of all meetings, serve notices of meetings of the board, keep appropriate current records showing the names of the members, and sign as secretary all written instruments approved by the board;

4.       Treasurer – receive and deposit all funds of the Coolcrest POA, maintain books to account for funds, disburse and withdraw funds, and prepare financial statements;

5.       Sergeant at Arms – maintain order at all meetings, assist in the signing in of members and visitors, assist the president as needed.

We need your active participation in the Property Owners Association to ensure that your property values continue to be protected and property owners’ rights and concerns are addressed. 

Hope to see you January 21, 2020.

Minutes for Oct. 15, 2019 POA Meeting

Meeting was held at the Christian Family Baptist Church and was called to order at 7:37 PM by President Gabriel Lara.

Minutes from the July 16, 2019 meeting were read and approved.

Treasurer’s report was read and approved.

Open Forum

  1. Deputies Chavez and Pacheco from Precinct #1 Constable’s Office gave a presentation as to their duties.  Their office is at 3505 Pleasanton Rd. and consists of 18 officers.  They assist city police and sheriff.  They handle traffic control and civil cases.  If you have a complaint/concern, put it in writing or an email to the constable and they will check it out.  A brochure was handed out.
  2. Tony Gonzales, a candidate of US Congress, introduced himself and talked about his background, qualifications, and plans for the district if elected.   He also handed out a brochure.
  3. We then had speakers from Bexar County Public Works Department.  Kurt Franz handles traffic issues .  We asked him to do a new traffic study on Silver Maple.  Tony Picasso deals with Capital Improvements  and I was working with him regarding sidewalks in Coolcrest.  The project would involve moving cables, pipes and determining if flood issues would be involved.  Much more costly than originally thought so not possible at this time. Tony Vasquez handles maintenance issues.  Gabe is currently working with Robert Delaney about brush/bulky pickup in our area.  A resident brought up that White Ash was not redone the last time due to bees and now the road is coming up.  Tony took the information and will check it out.  You can call the Cagnon Service Center at 210-631-0220.
  4. Stephen Tzhone from EPA gave us a slide presentation  on the cleanup of the old River City Metal Plating property.  They are now in the Remedial Investigation phase where they collect field data.  There is a well onsite that has high levels of chromium but preliminary testing shows it is localized.  This phase will take 2-5 years.  The latest testing of our water shows everything is good.

Old Business

  1. Letters were sent to property owners not in compliance with the deed restriction.  No responses were received.  Gabe found no record of a license for the barbershop on Tallowood.  He will contact Code Compliance regarding the garage business on Grapevine.  TCEQ checked out the barrels on Poinciana and no citations were issued.
  2. I have not heard back from the contractor regarding the entry sign replacement or repair.  A resident works for a contractor but the main people are out of town until next week.  She will check with them. 
  3. I confirmed with TXDOT that the trees at Silver Maple and Potranco that are blocking our line of sight are on personal property and not the Right of Way.  Gabe will schedule a time to cut them down as we have the owner’s permission to do so.  To move the utility pole that is in the way, we would have to pay each entity involved to move it.
  4. The City of San Antonio Military Protection Ordinance was passed.  One item is a $250.00 fee to see if your project is in compliance.  Not sure if just new developers or all individuals.  Gabe wrote letters to Phil Cortez and Peter Flores asking for clarification.
