May 14, 2020 Message from TWALA Board of Directors
 
We hope that this note finds you and your family in good health during these uncertain times. With health and safety at the forefront, the Waters at Lake Anna (TWALA) wants to continue to do all that we can to protect our employees, contractors, and our TWALA families. As the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 continues to spread throughout Virginia, we want to update you on some of the actions that Governor Ralph Northam is taking to help protect us all, while setting the path forward.
 
Though Executive Orders 53 and 55 remain in effect, on Friday May 8, 2020 Governor Northam signed Executive Order 61, which sets out the first phase, effective May 15, 2020, in the plan for the state of Virginia’s orders to protect the health and safety of Virginians and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus while moving forward. This Executive Order may be found at:

In compliance with the governor’s orders, the TWALA HOA physical OFFICE WILL REMAIN CLOSED to TWALA members and the public until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by further Executive Order. However, our office manager, Ms. Tara Hirshell will be available during office hours, 10 am to 2 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, via telephone at 540-894-0409, or via email at twalahoa@gmail.com. For additional TWALA HOA information please visit www.twala.org.
 
The HOA Board of Directors (BOD) has decided to have a remote BOD monthly meeting for May. The May 2020 BOD meeting will be held using remote means on May 23 at 10:00 am. Additionally, the BOD has deferred the Annual HOA Meeting from May 23, 2020 to a date yet unspecified. A minimum of 14-day notice will be provided in advance of the rescheduled date. The current slate of Directors will remain in office until a new Board is formed at the next Annual Meeting.  
 
Swimming Pool and Pavilion operation (opening) will be promulgated as things progress. As it stands now, and in accordance with the Governor’s directives, the earliest opening may be June 10, 2020. These restrictions may be rescinded or modified under future phases of the Governor’s plan. Those TWALA members and guests using the TWALA beach area, are asked to maintain six-foot spacing and a gathering size of 10 or less individuals, for your safety as well as that of your fellow TWALA members and guests.
 
Stay healthy!

For the Board of Directors

May 6, 2020 Message from the TWALA Board regarding Golf Cart use.
 
TWALA Members:
 
The TWALA Board is happy to announce that the TWALA Community is now approved and ready to move forward as a Golf Cart friendly neighborhood.   To help ensure the protection and safety of the TWALA members, family and friends “Golf Cart Rules and Guidelines” have been developed and approved by the TWALA Board of Directors pursuant to the authority granted to the Board by Section 8 of the Covenants and based on the results of the TWALA member survey conducted by the TWALA Board.   Golf Cart identification signs have been installed at both entrances to the community and also a notice when leaving the community that Golf Carts are not allowed on Lake View Blvd.
 
Any TWALA member, in good standing, desiring to use his/her Golf Cart on the TWALA community public roads and common areas may apply to the Board for a registration sticker.  Please use the following steps to complete your application. 
 
1.    Print out a copy of the new “Rules and Guidelines for use of a Golf Cart in TWALA” (“Document”) which is located   on the http://www.twala.org/ web site by clicking “About” on the top menu bar then clicking “HOA Documents”.  
2.    Read the complete Document, provide responses to several questions at the end and then sign the Document.
3.    Make a copy of your Insurance policy covering the golf cart and have $5.00 cash or a check made out to TWALA for the registration sticker.
4.    The TWALA office is currently following COVID-19 rules.  As such, at this time, either:  
a.    Mail the signed copy of the Document along with a copy of the Insurance policy and the payment to TWALA at 841 Lake Forest Dr. Mineral, VA 23117, or
b.    Place the signed copy of the Document along with a copy of the Insurance policy and $5.00 payment in an envelope addressed to “TWALA Golf Cart Registration” and place the envelope in the small lock box inside the large TWALA mailbox outside the clubhouse.
5.    Upon receipt of the Document the Office Manager will review the Document to ensure all questions have been answered, the Document is signed, and a copy of the golf cart insurance coverage and payment have been provided.  Once the Document is verified, a numbered Golf Cart registration sticker will be mailed to the applicant members listed address. 
 
Thank you and stay safe,
TWALA Board of Directors

Welcome Home
 
Welcome to the website for The Waters at Lake Anna, a prestigious community on the private side of Lake Anna in Mineral, Virginia.  With over four hundred estate lots uniquely located a short drive from Charlottesville, Richmond or Fredericksburg, this premier community is well worth a visit.
 
The Waters boasts numerous amenities: pool, tennis courts, boat ramp, day slips, athletic field, private beach, and community clubhouse, all available for use by residents and lot owners of the community as well as their guests.  Whether you are here to enjoy the fishing, boating, athletic activities, wildlife, peaceful countryside or the wonderful sunsets, we welcome you, your family members, and your guests to a memorable experience at The Waters.
 
If you are visiting our community in search of just the right place to build a new home, a retirement residence, a vacation home, or simply seeking to invest in an upscale community at Lake Anna, then look no further. Our rural setting affords a relaxing environment to which one may retreat for a restful weekend or a welcome abode at the end of a grueling workday.
 
Although we are a relatively young Homeowners’ Association, our Board of Directors is working hard to continue to improve the community with the addition of amenities and improvement of existing facilities.  If you are interested in learning more of the projects on which the Board is working, have suggestions on a particular aspect of life at The Waters, or are already a member of the Association and are interested in participating in the administration of your community, please do not hesitate to contact any one of the Board members through our website’s “Contact” page.
