ATTENTION: Online Voting for Deed Restrictions, By-Laws and Board Elections
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and its impact on all of our lives, OCMPOA is currently evaluating a number of changes. Late last year (before the pandemic), the board decided to approach the issue of revising both our Deed Restrictions and By-Laws to adjust to changing trends and evolving issues in our neighborhood. With this pandemic we must now consider additional changes as well.
In January 2020, the Board approved a door-to-door canvas to occur during the early spring weeks which unfortunately was cancelled due to COVID-19. This would have served to gather interest in our community, provide greater awareness of the Neighborhood Watch Program and gather votes for the updated Deed Restrictions.
Since we cannot do this in person, we would like to hear directly from every property owner in the neighborhood. An online voting link has been setup at: http://tinyurl.com/ocmpoa2020. This voting includes updates to our Deed Restrictions and By-Laws, as well as elections for officers to the Board. The Deed Restrictions vote is open to ALL homeowners in the neighborhood, regardless of OCMPOA membership. The elections for officers of the Board are restricted only to members of OCMPOA, but we would like to encourage everyone to renew or join if you haven’t before. In order to change a Deed Restriction, we must have 51% of homeowner’s votes for the change, which means we would need 126 votes in order to change a restriction. So your vote is truly important! We will announce an update of the votes at our Virtual Annual Meeting which is scheduled for Sunday, July 26th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
NOTE: We must have your email address to send you the link for our upcoming Virtual Annual Meeting, so make sure you give us your email address when you vote. A link to the meeting will be emailed to you Sunday morning.

From neighbor Louis Castillo:
Neighborhood Garage Sale – June 3, 2017
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.
Annual Meeting time! Join your neighbors for an opportunity to stay informed and make decisions about our community!
When: Sunday, May 7, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
