-Due to the weather delays last week with the progress of the Lake 2 final stage of improvement work, the Trail (Lake 2) will be closed beginning this Tuesday through Saturday morning to allow workers to complete the remaining work to finish this lake. We will then move to Lake 1, and anticipate 1-2 weeks to complete that location.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


​-Update on the on-going repair status from the freeze damages at the Family Pool. We have an expected completion date of Friday, June 11, 2021 currently for the on-going repair status and will announce a firm re-opening date no later than Wednesday, June 9th. Vendors are now being notified to resume services on June 11th and we are pleased to announce this timeline for resuming the 2021 pool season in this location. The Pavilion pool is open for use at this time as repairs were completed earlier this month, if you were not already aware.
Management has recently been notified of an incident in the community regarding an unleashed dog bite. We would like to take a moment and remind all pet parents that dogs are required to be leashed at all times in the common areas of the community, with the exception of the dog park. Please be a responsible pet parent and aware that this is also a county requirement as well as a community rule. Also, please be aware if your dog behaves aggressively to consider remaining leashed in the dog park to ensure the safety of any other pets inside the park as well.

 ​Board Meeting Updates

Following the Board meeting held last night, we have a few important updates to provide to our community.

Pool Insurance Claim and Re-Opening:

We have been advised, and are pending final confirmation, that the Pavilion pool repairs will be completed over the weekend and we anticipate re-opening the Pavilion pool and pavilion rentals beginning on Tuesday, May 18th. We will distribute a confirmation email by Monday, May 17th to confirm that all repairs are complete and the Pavilion pool is open. The Family pool is still under repair and we anticipate completion within 1-2 weeks. We will continue to provide updates as progress is made in repairs to confirm a re-opening schedule for the Family Pool. We apologize for the inconveniences and delays, however these have been out of our control due to the demand for plumbing supplies and increased scope of damage following remediation efforts.

Pavilion Fencing/Dog Park Fencing:

The Board has reviewed a scope of work for fence repairs to the Pavilion and Dog Park fencing, however, to the rapid increase in cost for wood at this time, the Board has determined that completing these repairs at this time would not be in the best interest of the community financial management. We anticipate that we will proceed with repairs as soon as pricing for wood returns to more normal costs, currently estimated in the industry for August/September at this time.

Lake Trail Improvement Updates:

Update: Due to the expected weather forecast this week, Lake #2 stabilizer installation has been delayed until next Monday. Thank you in advance for your attention.


We have completed the installation of the stabilizer material on Lake 3 and will be moving to Lake #2 next week. This will cause a temporary shut down expected to last all of next week, with anticipate re-opening of Lake #2 on or near May 21st. Upon completion of Lake #2, we will begin the final stabilizer installation to Lake #1, which may take 1-2 weeks to complete due to the size. We will confirm scheduling for re-opening Lake #2 and closing Lake #1, as we near completion of Lake #2 which will be dependent on weather conditions.

Garage Sale Volunteer:

We are currently looking for a community volunteer to assist with planning and organizing the community semi-annual garage sales. If you are interested, please contact management. The fall garage sale will be coming soon and having a coordinator on board prior to that event will be essential.

Common Area Tree Removal Project:

The Board has approved a tree removal project for several trees damaged by the freeze event, however, due to backlog with the vendor scheduling, we currently expect this to begin on June 18th. There is no action needed by residents, this is for informational purposes only.

Thank you in advance for your attention and cooperation, as always.

















Lake Update and a note about roofs

We expect that the final lake trail closure (Lake 2) to begin this Thursday for the last portion of the major project. We have a few remaining projects on-going in Lake 1, but do not believe that these would impede access to the trails by residents for the remaining portions of work. The Board is actively continuing trail bench replacement discussions and several additional smaller projects in the coming months and we will continue to provide additional information on these activities.

As a reminder to all residents, during the last community inspection, a very high number of pine needle/leaf covered roofs were present on a large number of homes. We are aware that with a tree friendly community, that our beloved trees will shed excessively, however, it is proper maintenance for your roof to avoid build ups of material on surfaces for extended periods of time, as well as detracting from the visual appearance of the community. Management will provide for time to address clean up of these areas, but will begin sending notifications if these are not addressed in early spring.

​Sinkhole repairs in Section 4

Please be advised that the sinkhole in Section 4 will be repaired in the upcoming weeks, weather permitting.  Thanks to the many residents that attended the WFUD meetings, as it made a big impact.  The WFUD has agreed to reimburse WWL for half the cost of the repairs as well as working together to establish an easement agreement for WWL residents.  The WWL Board looks forward to getting this long overdue project completed soon.

















Windfern Forest Utility District Meeting “WFUD” – Section 4 Residents
The Woodwind Lakes Board would like to request your presence at the next WFUD monthly board meeting, as the large sink hole by the lake will be discussed.  The board has been trying to work with the WFUD Board to get a quick resolution on fixing the sinkhole but the WFUD has put off discussions with the Woodwind Lakes Board to date.  WFUD owns the property and not only is the sinkhole an eyesore but a safety issue.  We would appreciate your support if you could attend and be vocal about the situation with WFUD and their lack of cooperation in repairing this safety hazard.

Did You Know? Sidewalk Maintenance

  • Having well maintained sidewalks is generally viewed as an important characteristic of a neighborhood.
  • Uneven sections may be dangerous and cause people to trip and get injured. (Tripping on uneven panels, including injuries, has been reported by several residents.)
  • There are a number of sidewalk panels in Sections 1, 2, and 3 (Section 4 has no sidewalks) that are in need of leveling to avoid being trip hazards.
  • Sidewalk panels that have sunken also represent a hazard if mud accumulates and becomes a slip hazard.
  • Maintenance of sidewalks is the property owner's responsibility.
  • Hazardous sidewalks are subject to a fine for a deed restrictions violation.


Let’s keep our sidewalks looking their best while maintaining a safe environment for the many folks who enjoy walking around our beautiful neighborhood.
