About Us

Willow Creek Estates is located in San Marcos, Hays County, Texas. It is a deed restricted, single family per house community of over 400 home sites with limited development still in progress. Development began in the 1970’s. Over the next 30 years additional sections were developed with Section 12 being the last.

In the mid-1980’s, an upgraded section (The Ridge located on Willow Ridge Drive) was developed differently in that it has its own mandatory maintenance fees that were established by the developer and also has its own board of officers apart from WCHOA. Later a second such upgradedspring section was developed called The Ridge II HOA. These two upgraded sections are also a part of the umbrella WCHOA and are easily identified by entrance signs and raised curbs.

The Willow Creek Homeowners Association, Inc. is registered with the State of Texas as a Domestic Nonprofit Corporation. The WCHOA Board consists of at least four officers and three directors elected each year. We invite all property owners, as well as renters, to join us in helping to preserve high standards of livability that our neighborhood enjoys. WCHOA provides an effective forum for the discussion of such relevant issues such as signage, traffic problems, fire protection, police protection, and deed restriction compliance. We are diligent in the enforcement of our deed restricted, single-family neighborhood – in April 2003 we were successful with the District Court upholding our deed restrictions.

DUES – [Online Membership Form]
We invite our residents to invest $20 annually to become a paid member to insure that residents are informed about neighborhood issues. Our dues are a very nominal $20 per calendar year (January 1 – December 31) and this is the primary source of income that WCHOA receives to support our activities. The volunteer officers and directors of WCHOA request that all residents promptly summit their payments each January. Reminders about dues may appear in each WCHOA Newsletter and on this website.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING – Usually on the first Sunday in June, we kick off the new WCHOA year with our Annual Meeting. It is here that we elect officers and directors, discuss various issues, and meet new neighbors. Watch for the announcement in the Newsletter and on signs posted near our neighborhood entrances. All Willow Creek Estates residents are welcome.

NEWSLETTER – Your HOA periodically publishes a newsletter called Willow Creek News and Views, which is distributed to all residents via email or regular mail. If you are not receiving a copy of our Newsletter, contact one of the WCHOA Board members to get on the mailing list. If you receive a copy addressed incorrectly or as “Resident or Occupant”, please notify the WCHOA Treasurer or one of the Board members.

If you would like to submit an article or letter, email it to wchoa99@gmail.com.

EYE APPEAL – Please keep garbage cans, recreational/utility vehicles, and boats off the streets and out of front or side yards. Brush and/or trash piles should not be allowed to remain more than a few days. Your neighbors will appreciate it. We all like attractive streets and lawns and should be interested in maintaining the charming appearance and marketability of our neighborhood.

DEED RESTRICTIONS – When you purchased your home or lot, a copy of your respective section’s Covenants and Deed Restrictions should have been among your closing papers. You may also view the Deed Restrictions on this website. Official copies of Deed Restrictions must be obtained from the Hays County Clerk.

Residents who are contemplating installing a new fence, utility shed, or other modification to their home or property should first check their Covenants and Deed Restrictions and contact a WCHOA Board member so the Architectural Control Committee can review and approve their plans before proceeding with any improvements and/or upgrades.

PETS – Covenants for some sections contain pet restrictions. The control of household pets is also covered by city and county ordinances, which may be viewed on their respective websites. Pets are not permitted to run free in Willow Creek Estates.
