COVID-19 Rules for all Sweetwater Amenities –

After meeting with our legal advisors and researching Governors orders and Travis County COVID-19 guidelines, it has been determined by the Sweetwater Board of Directors that the following COVID-19 rules will go into effect as of 12:00 a.m., Friday, December 11, 2020, for all Sweetwater amenities including but not limited to the following:

Fitness Center, Sport Court, Pavilions, Playgrounds, and the Overlook Club.

This adheres with Texas Law as well as Travis County Judge Sam Biscoe’s signed County Judge Order 2020-16; Relating to the COVID-19 Community Restrictions.

This states that you, as an individual, are responsible to adhere to the following:

Every person in Travis County must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building open to the public.

In an outdoor public space whenever it is not feasible to maintain six (6) feet of social distancing from persons outside one’s household, a face covering must also be worn.

We hope this is clear and alleviates any concerns or confusion. The alternative to not following these COVID-19 Orders would be to close all the facilities.

Thanks for keeping Sweetwater Safe!

 

Efforts by SAFER71 have brought down the speed limit on HWY 71 from Bee Cave to the Pedernales River.

 

White ribbons wrapped on trees and streets around the Sweetwater neighborhood during November served as a reminder of the tragic loss of a beloved resident. Members of the newly mobilized Safer 71 organization want to ensure this tragedy is not in vain.

Safer71 is a non-profit comprised of residents of Sweetwater and surrounding neighborhoods. The group aims to achieve a zero-fatality road corridor on SH71 between Southwest Parkway and the Blanco County Line. This stretch of highway has seen 20 auto-collision deaths and 128 serious injuries since 2014.

Working with municipal and county governments, traffic jurisdictions, and local neighborhoods, Safer 71 aims to provide the necessary research, advocacy and outreach programs to ensure that SH71 becomes a road that people can feel safe driving on every day. Their charter focuses on a comprehensive approach to the problems: Engineering, Enforcement and Education.

Safer71 asks that you join the effort by supporting, promoting or volunteering with its efforts.
