Each household is encouraged to participate by selling your unwanted items from your own driveway. Several publications such as the Statesman, Austin Chronicle, Hays Free Press and Craigslist will carry advertising in the preceding days. We now have sharp-looking signs that will be posted at intersections along Old San Antonio Rd, Twin Creeks, 1626, and Buda nearing the neighborhood.
Take advantage of the free advertising! (Adjacent neighborhoods and individuals, too!)

Love this rain but cross your fingers for a dry garage sale!

OCMPOA Board member Lance Farley met with Bear Creek Crossing contractor Royce Rippy and 204 Turley Dr. (currently vacant lot) owner Jarrod Gaither to discuss the impending development bordering our neighborhood to the north and the emergency access road connecting to Turley Dr. that Travis county has asked for.

Lance learned that construction will begin on the development in about 30 days. There will be a second phase of the development begun in about 18 months that will include lots backing up to our northernmost Turley Drive properties. The emergency access road will be built on the half of the previously-vacated easement included in Mr. Gaither’s property and will be approximately 25-30 feet wide. The road is supposed to be gated and locked at the north end (bordering Bear Creek Crossing) and is only to be used for emergency vehicle access to Bear Creek Crossing. Lance received assurance from Mr. Rippy that Bear Creek Crossing construction vehicles would not be using the road. Mr. Rippy also stated that Bear Creek Crossing’s HOA would be responsible for maintenance of the road. A more complete plan of the development, showing the bordering to our neighborhood, can be found by clicking here and scrolling down about halfway through the .pdf.

Once the emergency access road has been completed, Mr. Gaither plans to build a home on the 204 Turley lot and put it up for sale.

Again, as further details are known, Lance will update this website with them.
