The Springs Homeowners Association invites you to join us for a community safety meeting. The Davidson County Sheriff’s Department will assist us in re-establishing our Neighborhood Watch Program. Additionally, the Healing Springs Fire Department and Forestry Service representatives will join us for an important presentation on fire safety for our neighborhood.
Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention partnership where law enforcement and residents work together to keep their neighborhoods safe and their quality of life up. The program is designed to empower all participants with education, encouragement, and a common-sense approach to safety, which serves as an additional set of “eyes and ears” for law enforcement and for each other.
Living in our tranquil, forested environment requires us to be ever vigilant in fire prevention. Learn more about the Firewise program the community participates in, landscape considerations for around our homes, and overall fire safety considerations.
You are invited to come meet your new neighbors, strengthen the relationships with your established neighbors, and learn how we can all play a safe role in these important programs. Please respond to the Security Committee if you plan to attend.

This week, a crew is scheduled to begin the long-anticipated work needed to replace our outdated, expensive streetlights with sleek, modern, and far more affordable LED fixtures like the one that has been on display near the clubhouse. Starting on Wednesday, January 27, the crew will be drilling under roadways and some driveway aprons in order to update some of the wiring. By next week, trench digging will commence along some areas of roadway to permit the completion of the wiring installation. You might have noticed these areas marked by orange flags. All of this work is estimated to take eight weeks, so please be cautious when driving and give the work crew the space it needs to complete this task. Once this portion of the job has been completed, installation of the new lights can occur sometime in the spring.Thank you.HOA Board of Directors: Karl Svatek
The defibrillator that has been purchased for emergency use at the clubhouse is now in place. The unit is placed inside a display case mounted to the wall in the lobby outside the downstairs restrooms. The door to the lobby is unlocked each day around 8:30 AM and locked again at 5 PM. Once pool season begins, the door will remain unlocked each day until sunset. Anyone at the pool who would need to use the defibrillator to deal with a cardiac event will be able to access the lobby easily, but it would be wise for anyone playing tennis or pickleball to bring your pool access card with you to enable you to enter the gate.
Karl Svatek: HOA Board of Directors
First and foremost, the gatekeeper for any community use of the clubhouse is Bill Conrad (336-250-1651). Contact him directly with requests to reserve the facility.
HOA committees or board-sanctioned activities that wish to use the clubhouse for meetings should appoint someone to notify Mr. Conrad when they plan to meet. If it is a regularly-scheduled event, once per year is enough; if the day or time of the event varies, Mr. Conrad should be notified for each reservation.
The procedure for members in-good-standing wishing to reserve the clubhouse for private parties is:
- Check the Events Calendar on our website (www.thespringsathighrock.org) to see if the date and time you want are available.
- If the clubhouse is available, review two documents on the Downloads page of our website, Clubhouse Rules/Standards and Application for Clubhouse Reservation Agreement.
- Print and complete the seven-page Application for Clubhouse Reservations Agreement.
- Telephone Mr. Conrad (336-250-1651) and make an appointment to personally deliver to him the completed seven-page agreement, the reservation check, and a separate deposit check. (Bill Conrad has been instructed not to take reservations over the telephone.)
- Only when the clubhouse contract and both checks are in Bill’s possession, and only then, can you assume you may use the clubhouse within the time frame of your reservation agreement.
Please do not try to give the application and checks to anyone but Bill. Members of the HOA Board of Directors, the RFC, and the Communications Committee cannot accept them.
Finally, in an effort to keep the parties safe and to minimize wear and tear on the clubhouse facility, we have several rules for clubhouse use for private parties. Two are very important, and if broken, could result in automatic forfeiture of your deposit. The first, one adult HOA member of the rental agreement must be present at all times and be responsible for the actions of all guests, caterers, and any service personnel when they are in the clubhouse. Second, if a member rents the clubhouse, his guests may not use the pool or tennis courts. We prefer that this rule apply to the member’s family, as well.
Your HOA board regrets that the procedure for reserving the clubhouse has to be so rigid, but we worry that if the rules are not strictly adhered to by all parties, a resulting conflict could ruin a once-in-a-lifetime birthday, anniversary, or wedding reception. Thus, in fairness to all, please adhere to the established protocol.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Curtis Ish: HOA Board of Directors
