To all Seven Coves Residents:
In my last Presidents update I mentioned the possibility of new internet services being installed by Tachus which has been installing new facilities in several other HOA’s such as Walden, Grand Harbor, Bent Water, and Point Aquarius.
Some residents may be aware that Tachus work crews initiated excavation in several yards on Lake Shore Circle on June 1. This work was initiated without any notification to the Seven Coves Board (SCB) or to the residents on that street. Due to the lack of notification the crews were asked to stop work and did so after filling the minimal excavation that had occurred.
In a letter dated June 2 the Seven Coves Board expressed their concerns to Tachus about the lack of notice and requested clarification about the authorization to work within the subdivision. Tachus requested a meeting with the SCB and it was held on June 11th.
Prior to June 11th the Seven Coves Board was under the impression, based upon a request from Tachus in late March, that the SCB would need to approve an easement agreement with Tachus before installation could proceed. Apparently, that request was in error as the roads within Seven Coves are public roads not private roads.
In the June 11th meeting Tachus explained that under a state certificate they have authorization to install their facilities within county road right of way if the road is public not private. However, Tachus management agreed with the SCB concerns about the lack of notice before starting work. This was in error and not consistent with Tachus normal procedures.
Tachus indicated to the SCB they have largely met their goals for Seven Coves resident subscribers and Tachus intended to proceed with installation. Tachus management requested that the SCB agree to an installation plan and schedule so that Tachus could communicate the schedule to HOA residents that have subscribed for future service. The following is the agreed schedule:
Tachus will host an "open house" on June 29 for any Seven Coves resident to address questions or concerns about the installation plan or their services in the SC clubhouse from 12 PM until 8PM.
The SCB had planned to place the Tachus plan on the June 30th HOA meeting agenda. However, that meeting is now canceled. Residents comments would have been be taken but since no Board vote is required meeting cancellation does not change the plan as Tachus has the authority to proceed with installation in the county right of way. The county right of way typically extends 10-15 feet past the curb. Residents that have comments on the topic should email them to email@example.com.
Tachus management and the SCB have agreed that installation will start on Monday July 13th.
Direct notices from Tachus to affected residents will be posted on doors on July 6th. Tachus estimates that construction will take 6 to 8 weeks to complete. We encourage residents to view the Tachus website that addresses questions about installation for customers and non-customers impacted by construction.

Seven Coves Residents – Covid-19 Impacts and Restrictions
Seven Coves Pool Opening May 22, 2020
On May 18 the Governor gave approval for outdoor public pools to open at 25% capacity as long as social distancing could be maintained and adequate cleaning procedures were put in place. Current CDC guidance indicates that the likelihood of Covid-19 transmission in properly chlorinated pools is low and the newest guidance indicates surface transmission is much lower than previously reported.
The Seven Coves Board has reviewed the requirements for opening and operating the pool, developed a set of new guidelines for pool use and sanitation, and held an orientation meeting with our pool Monitors yesterday. Several new procedures will be in place and strictly enforced. Individual behavior is the single most important factor in reducing the risk of Covid -19 transmission and the new rules are critical as well as the need to strictly enforce them to open the pool and keep people safe.
Given these plans and procedures we believe it is possible to adequately manage pool capacity and group sizes and follow the recommended sanitation procedures so that the pool can now be opened.
The pool will open at 11AM Sunday May 24th. The pool will be open for Sunday and Memorial Day from 11AM until 8 PM and closed on Tuesday for cleaning. Pool passes will be available starting at 11:00 AM Sunday and available anytime the pool is open. Pool Passes will only be issued to residents that complete the required waiver form. We will be making the new rules and required waiver form available on the HOA website by Friday morning. Please note the pool will have open and closed intervals each day so read the rules and times carefully.
To save time please download the form, read, sign, and bring with you when you pick up your pool pass. This will significantly decrease your wait time to get into the pool. Forms will be available at the gate if you cannot download or print the form ahead of time. An ID is required when you submit your form and request your pool pass. All waivers will be kept on file at the gate to simplify subsequent visits to the pool, but an ID and pool pass will be required each time you plan to use the pool.
Please carefully read the new rules which are for your safety and for the safety of the pool Monitors. Group size and limits on total capacity is well defined and cannot be exceeded. We want the pool to be safe and enjoyable to swimmers and families of all ages. As in the past no alcohol can be present in the pool area and anyone using inappropriate language or who fail to follow the safe use rules will be asked to leave by the pool Monitors. If this request is refused the Constables will be called.
We are pleased that the extensive pool remodel work done earlier this year can now be enjoyed by our residents and that the pool can be opened in time for Memorial Day.

Mike Bleier, President
Lake Conroe Association
Update from 12/23/19
"The Seven Coves Board supports the area community and Lake Conroe Association efforts to oppose renewal of the
Lake Conroe Seasonal Lake Lowering Program
by the San Jacinto River Authority Board. This program was enacted in 2018 and
presented as a temporary measure to allow dredging to be completed on the West Fork of the San Jacinto river.
That dredging is complete and we are now entering the six month of very low
lake levels due to the SJRA summer draining of two feet of water from the lake.
The attached letter summarizes further action the public can take regarding a petition addressed to Governor Abbott who
appoints the SJRA Board. It will be presented to the Governor prior to the SJRA Board review January 21st."

UPDATE from 12/20/19

Seven Coves Residents
The Lake Conroe Association (LCA) is organizing all Lake Conroe area residents via their Homeowner Associations to
lobby the San Jacinto River Authority Management and Board to repeal the seasonal lake lowering program
implemented in 2018. The program was originally labeled as "temporary" while dredging was underway on the
San Jacinto river basin to reduce flooding downstream of Lake Conroe. The dredging program has been completed
but it appears that the SJRA may now continue the program as indicated in their press release issued last week.
For more information please read the attached materials and letter from the LCA President Mike Bleier.
Updates will be provided as they become available.

SIGNS IN SEVEN COVES
Please do not post signs regarding lost dogs, garage sales, etc. to the stop signposts and speed limit signposts in our subdivision. It is illegal to attach any kind of sign to a stop sign post or speed limit post and it makes our subdivision appear un-kept and unpresentable.
We suggest posting on Nextdoor website or in the Seven Coves bulletin board by the pool entrance; or in the local newspaper. In the future, if any signs are found on stop signs, speed limit signs, etc. they will be removed immediately.
Your cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
