July 3, 2020 Message from TWALA Board of Directors: (Update)
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. In compliance with the governor’s orders, the TWALA HOA physical office will remain open, with limited access only to TWALA members and the public, until rescinded by further Executive Order of the Governor or by TWALA BOD action. However, our office manager, Ms. Tara Hirshell, will be available during office hours, 10 am to 2 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays (with the exception of every third Saturday of the month) through Labor Day, via telephone at 540-894-0409, or via email at email@example.com. For additional TWALA HOA information please visit www.twala.org.
The HOA Board of Directors (BOD) has been, and will most probably continue in the near term, holding their monthly BOD business meetings by remote means, with dial-in "listen only" available to members. The agenda, including the dial-in numbers, is provided by email and on the website prior to the monthly BOD Meeting. Additionally, the BOD has deferred the Annual HOA Meeting 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 Update from TWALA Board of Directors
In our message of June 26, 2020, the Board indicated that the Swimming Pool and Pavilion would remain closed until such time that restrictions are rescinded or modified under the Governor’s plan. The Board of Directors has closely evaluated and considered the “Safer at Home: Phase Three Guidelines” that are effective July 1, 2020, as related to swimming pools and adjacent areas. The Virginia Department of Health provided additional information and clarifications for implementing the guidelines in a Webinar held on June 26, 2020. The Board carefully considered and deliberated the guidelines and clarifications, and the impact for practically and adequately managing these amenities, during the June 27, 2020, Board of Director’s meeting. The Board determined that, in the interest of health and safety of the community, the Swimming Pool and Pavilion areas will remain closed indefinitely. In addition, the Board determined that it is equally impractical to allow rental of the Clubhouse at this time. The Board will continue to monitor any actions taken by the Governor or the Virginia Department of Health in this regard. Please consider social distancing, cleanliness, and health and safety of you, your family, guests, and others when using the outdoor community amenities, such as the beach and the marina, which are "use at your own risk."

May 6, 2020 Message from the TWALA Board regarding Golf Cart use.
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
