Playscapes Closed for Remodel

Playscapes Closed for Remodel

Brookfield Homeowners and Residents,

As you are aware, the Association has contracted with Grounds for Play to remove our existing playscapes and install our new playscapes and safety equipment.

If you would like to see mockups for each park, please see below:

playscape_big_kids_park
playscape_toddler_park

The toddler park will also have fence around the playscape as an additional safety measure.

The project was slated to start in a few weeks but the playscapes and equipment have arrived early and the contractor is able to start work immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We believe you’ll be incredibly happy with the new playscapes and the wait will be worth it! As a reminder, Northtown MUD has a few different playscape options in the park along Battenburg Trail.

Please use caution in our parks and stay away from the playscape areas while construction is taking place. Both areas will be secured with caution tape and barricades. Please do not remove the barricades or the caution tape.

We will send out further communications when the work is complete and the playscapes are open for business.

We look forward to seeing the new playscapes and shade structures.

Thank you,
Board of Directors

Fireworks Prohibited

Fireworks Prohibited

Brookfield Owners and Residents,

As we approach the 4th of July, we’d like to remind all homeowners and residents that fireworks are strictly prohibited in Brookfield. The use of fireworks will result in an incurable violation and $50 fine for each instance.

Fireworks create a significant safety concern for both property and life in Central Texas. Both the City of Austin and City of Pflugerville have ordinances banning them for the same reasons.

Please respect your neighbors with small children, PTSD, and pets and refrain from using fireworks. There are several controlled fireworks shows taking place in the Austin area including the popular Austin Symphony Orchestra Free 4th of July Concert and Fireworks at Vic Mathias Shores (formally Auditorium Shores) and the Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival at the Pfield (Pflugerville Stadium).

As in 2018, we will have contracted security guards patrolling the neighborhood over the holiday in addition to relying on the community to enforce our CC&Rs. If you see fireworks in the neighborhood, please contact Certified Management via email at frontdesk@cmaaustin.com. Please include the address of the offender, date and time, and a photo of the violation.

Thank you,
Board of Directors
Brookfield Owners Association

Social Events and Volunteers Needed

Social Events and Volunteers Needed

Dear Homeowners,

With the resignation of our social committee chair, the Association has been unable to plan events for this summer but it isn’t too late to get started. If you are interested in joining the social committee to help plan and execute events, please let us know by contacting Certified Management of Austin at frontdesk@cmaaustin.com.

If we are able to get enough volunteers and jump start social committee meetings, there’s no reason we can’t have a couple great events this summer.

Social events bring the community together and play a vital role in helping neighbors get to know each other. Please let us know if you’re interested in volunteering and continuing to make Brookfield a great place to live.

Thank you,
Board of Directors

2019 Board of Directors Nominees

2019 Board of Directors Nominees

Don’t forget about the upcoming 2019 Annual Meeting of the Members on Monday, May 20, 2019!

There are two (2) open board positions. If you are interested in running, please submit your name and bio to Vangie Bocanegra at vangieb@cmaaustin.com.

As of today, we have two candidates. Below are the two candidates and their bios:

Scott Dollins
I’ve served on the Board of Directors for 3 years including 2 years as President. Over the last 3 years, we’ve made quite a bit of change including adding 2 additional directors to the board, instituting a formal code of conduct for board and committee members, starting several annual social events, and revamping our community website. I believe the Association is on a great path forward and I would like to continue serving our community. While this will complete my final year as President, if re-elected, I look forwarding to moving into a position to support the Board and its future endeavors in the best way I can.

I have a background in Information Technology and Project Management. My previous employment experiences include working at a Fortune 10 company, contracting for the federal government, and I currently work in wholesale financial services. My experience in IT has proven to be helpful as we’ve worked on our new website and irrigation system overhaul. I look forward to continuing to apply my experience to our Association initiatives and hope I will have your support in doing so.

Wendy Russom
My name is Wendy Russom; I’m a native Texan, originally from Northeast Texas. I moved to the Austin area in 2010. I have one daughter, who is 28 and currently living in College Station. I bought my home in Brookfield in August 2015, and really enjoy the area. My biggest concerns are neighborhood safety, home values, and maintaining a great quality of life for residents of Brookfield. I will work hard with the board of directors for our homeowners association. I would appreciate your vote!
