Watch Your Speed Please
Please remember to obey the speed limit throughout our neighborhood. Our community is a great place to walk your dog or go for that afternoon walk or run. Please be aware, share the road and slow down. We have had the edge strips repainted as well as extending an eight inch stripe throughout the neighborhood. We also installed a few "slow" signs as reminders. Please discuss this with family and friends that visit our community.

Street Lights/Capital Improvements
At the Spring 2014 HOA Member Meeting, the WNE HOA Board addressed the issues of safety in our community. Among the items discussed was the need for additional lighting along our streets, to improve both car and pedestrian safety. Soon after, we began the process of securing bids and assessing placement of new fixtures for optimum value.
As of November 2016, five new street lights have been added along Husky Way, Diamond Drive and 138th Place SE. These new light poles have LED fixtures and will lessen our PSE Power costs and provide a clearer, whiter light. At the same time, all the existing light fixtures were upgraded to the same LED fixtures and bulbs, to provide a uniform look.
This capital improvement provides a very real value to our community as a whole, and to each individual homeowner - increasing both safety and appeal.
Board Meetings: Our next board meeting is Saturday December 3, 2016 from 10:00am to 11:30am. Please join your volunteer board at the Pavilion building at the clubhouse.

As the life cycle of our gate equipment comes to an end, all the original operators and controllers have now been replaced. We were able to take advantage of special pricing and extended warranties, and now have consistent operation and programming. To pay for the budget impact, the board has removed the gate repair budget for the foreseeable future. The regular semi-annual prevenative will continue. Please check with your gate rep
for information on the new gate equipment. If you live behind a gate, keep in mind that all repairs beyond the planned maintenace are shared costs with your immediate neighbors behind that gate.
Secured Page for Residents only: Minutes from our recent meetings are available on our "Meeting Minutes" page, but access is restricted to residents only. Residents, if you have forgotten your log in info, please contact us to get your user name and password.
Speaking of Residents: This reminder that the golf course is not your private walking trail (even after hours), unless you have a golf bag and a green fee receipt in your pocket. OKI Golf reminds us it is not safe and not legal as you are trespassing on private property.
Dog Owner Reminder: Please pick up after your dogs. Waste bag stations are located past the golf course entrance, at the pond at the end of Husky Way and in Cecil Chen Park. Please do not put the waste in the trash cans at the park. Please carry out and dispose in your home garbage.
Remember to check our Social Activities page for upcoming events in the neighborhood.
