2022 Pool dates:  The pool will be open daily from May 1 - September 30.  It will be closed on Tuesdays for cleaning.

          Hours:     10:00 A.M. to 7:30 P.M. 

Reminder:  Overflow parking is not permitted at the pool area.  Please park perpendicular on the road leading to the pavilion to accommodate more cars than can be adequately parked at your residence.

 

 

Mowing of Unimproved Lots

 

To sign up to have your UNIMPROVED lot mowed, Terramar Beach HOA asks that you sign up and pay directly with Beach Town Lawn Service(BTLS) or with your own lawn service.  If you select to use BTLS, they will continue to honor the prior annual set fee of $300 for 24 mows.  

 

To sign up for the service with BTLS, you must email BTLS directly at terramarlotmowing@gmail.com  or by calling their office at  409-766-0942.  BTLS will then invoice you directly where you can pay by Paypal or by mail.   

 

Do not send your payment for lawn service with your HOA dues.  

 

This service is not mandatory but as a reminder, you are required to keep the lot maintained per the deed restrictions under 4" in height and the City of Galveston's Marshals office surveys our community weekly and is known for sending failure to comply letters to those that do not maintain their lots.

Water Meter - Be Prepared

When not using your home for an extended period it is prudent to turn off the water to the home to prevent possible damage in case of a leak or burst pipe.  Owners are charged for any water that runs through a water meter, even if there is a leak.
To prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane please turn your water off at the meter.   In a storm situation where water is left on, the owner would be charged for the water. If there are multiple homes with leaks due to damage, there could be low or no water pressure for all homes.
Also in case of a storm please secure your garbage can and other loose object around your home.

If you have any construction materials at all in your garbage can the entire can will be bypassed.  In addition, no construction materials will be picked up if they are stacked next to your can.  Each resident must haul off any scrap building materials to a dump.  Please clean and remove any lumber/building materials, etc. that has been placed on or near your property.  Let’s all help keep things nice.

The garbage men will not pick up yard debris such as limbs or palm leaves on vacant lots.  We are having a problem with residents taking this sort of debris and putting it on the vacant lots across the street or next door to them.  It sits there forever and eventually has to be removed by someone before the vacant lot can be mowed.
