Let's Talk About the Cave Lots
What is Winter Averaging and Why Should I Care?
Winter Averaging happens December through February and determines a cap on the volume of water and wastewater you will be billed for each month for the next year. The average from the district will be utilized by the City of Georgetown to determine costs for the rest of the year. The MUD closely monitors these numbers in order to ensure that the total winter averaging for the district is not over last year's. If the averages are significantly over last year it can result in a rate increase. During the winter months ensure you turn off non-essential irrigation systems, etc. to keep the usage in line with previous years.

Earlier this fall our oldest pool in Parkside was stripped of its crumbing plaster and tiles. It's all set for the 2019 swim season starting in March!
The Board will be starting to collect bids to update the older playscape by the ponds. Stay tuned!!
New trees, nicer beds, and more plants will be coming soon!

The 411 About Pets in Parkside
Parkside is home not just to us, but to our pets as well. We have a large community of pet lovers! However, sometimes that can present a few challenges. Here are some quick answers to pet questions:
Q. Can I have chickens?
A. No. No animals, including pigs, hogs, swine, poultry, fowl, wild animals, horses, cattle, sheep, goats, or any other type of animal not considered to be a domestic household pet within the ordinary meaning and interpretation of such words may be kept, maintained, or care for on or within the Development Area.
Q. My neighbor leaves their dogs outside 24/7 and they bark constantly. Can the HOA do anything?
A. Yes. You can report your neighbor (this can be done anonymously) to Spectrum and a courtesy reminder will be sent reminding your neighbor that "no animal will be allowed to make an unreasonable amount of noise, or to become a nuisance..."
