CSPOA Legal Matter:
The jury made their decision on Wednesday, October 13th. Property Owners were sent an email with the details and there is information in the CSPOA News.
Currently the cards are working and not the codes.
In order for us to make sure that our beautiful river park is being enjoyed by our owners and their guests, we will be removing the codes that you have on your cards. When you have guests, we can put a code on the card with a start and end date. You would need to include this on your RV or Tent request. If you have any questions or special requests, please call 210-865-1454.

CSPOA Annual Meeting 11/6
(Friendly words from Nextdoor) Thanks to the foresight of the Board of Directors to implement electronic balloting, we were able to avoid the scramble of previous years to assemble a quorum of the members, which is 10 percent of the owners. Minutes will be posted on the POA website (in the 2021 Annual Member Meeting), but re-elected to the Board were Tim Williams and Vanessa Bibb, and Kurt Geist, who had previously served on the Board, joining Michelle Grell and Nancy Chamberlain. Kurt replaces Scott Gorman, who chose not to stand for re-election, which we can understand. Scott and his wife have 6 kids, and I don't know when he sleeps, or if he does. Thanks to Scott for your service. Elected to the Architectural Control Committee was Susan Hart. Thanks to all who serve our community on the Board and other committees, which are unpaid positions which basically consist of either telling people they have to do what they don't want to, or telling them they cannot do what they want to. We need people willing to do those tasks, and we should be grateful to those willing to do them.
Park Gate is working. Please submit a request if you need cards. If you scan your card and it does not work, text me (210-865-1454) your last name and card number. I can go edit your card information to allow it to work. If you are renting a pavilion and need a code assigned to your card for the day, let us know and we can do that.
CSPOA Decals (same ones, we do not change out every year) MUST be displayed on the lower left corner of your windshield above the Motor Vehicle tag. All guests MUST have a Guest Pass or paper with the lot number of the property owner. If you do not have decals or cards, you can request them on our website cypresssprings.org. You will need to register to do this, which all property owners should do this to receive all CSPOA information. Neighborhood Watch and any property owner has the right to question someone not display a CSPOA Decal or a Guest Past.

Cypress Springs Development is a community of near 500 residences on tracts of land ranging from half an acre to over 5 acres in size. Our community sits along a stretch of the beautiful Guadalupe River in Spring Branch, Texas at the cusp of the Texas Hill Country. We love our river, the hills, the wildlife and our quiet living. If you find yourself with an opportunity to become a part of our wonderful community, you should take advantage of it and start living the good life.
Our Little bit of History:
A significant portion of Spring Branch (known today as the Cypress Springs development) that borders the Guadalupe River was first settled by German native Adam Becker (1815-1901)
Becker journeyed to Texas in 1845 to join Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels in establishing a colony on behalf of the Adelsverien, also knows as the German Emigration Company. Becker contributed to the building of Fredericksburg, Texas, and assisted with other aspects of the colony.
He married Elizabeth Monken and by 1852 had established his homestead on what is now Phantom Rider Trail in Spring Branch. On his homestead he raised cattle. The house he built for his family, which was privately restored in the first decade of the 21st century, was constructed of locally quarried stone and hand-hewn cypress from the banks of the nearby Guadalupe River. Adam Becker became a United States Citizen in 1860 and upon his death in 1901 was buried in the cemetery on his homestead. The headstone is located on the back end of the original property, not at the family cemetery.
Thank You Steven Dunn for the beautiful photos of our neighborhood and wildlife.
