We have been operating the TPOA Pool facility now for two full months under new management by Grigsby Pools, Bob McDonald, and myself. The pool was closed in the past on Mondays for cleaning and maintenance, we changed that to Tuesday to match the day that Grigsby Pools performs their duties. After much discussion we all agree that it is not necessary to close the pool all day long on Tuesdays. Because we are monitoring the water chemical balance every day, Grigsby pools only needs the pool closed for a few hours on Tuesday morning, typically 10 am - noon, due to shocking the pool with additional chlorine. We will place the “Closed for Maintenance” sign out after we shock the pool and will remove it when it is at safe chemical levels to swim, typically a few hours later. Bob or I are at the facility every morning if you have any questions or comments. There are security cameras installed now that are monitored 24/7/365. We ask that you help keep the facility clean, do NOT bring glass containers onto the pool deck, abide by the TPOA and State of Texas Rules as posted. The signage around the facility is now in compliance with the State and consists of the following:
Other concerns we have are as follows:
If there are any problems with the pool and or equipment contact me at email@example.com.

Short Term Rental’s (STR’s) have become very popular in the last few years and have become a HOT TOPIC! STR’s are defined as renting/leasing out a single family residence dwelling for 30 days/nights or less and are typically managed by online services such as Vacation Rentals By Owners (VRBO), AirBNB, Hometogo, Homeaway, etc.
Texas law does not currently prohibit this concept as a single family residence property owner, but responsible hosting is mandatory to keep the neighborhood community, TPOA, and nearby residents all happy! We live in a beautiful lake front community and would like to keep it that way and be respectful of others and their property.
Here are our TPOA Policy and Guidelines for STR’s:
· Guests MUST NOT block neighbors’ property, driveways, sidewalks, etc. with any vehicle of any type and definitely not park on anyone else’s property.
· Due to Thunderbird Point roads being narrow, guest vehicles should not be parked on the sides of the roads. This creates a serious safety problem for first responders such as, TVFD, Ambulances and Police to access anyone during an emergency.
· All guest vehicles must be able to park on the existing STR property driveway and garage space. If all of your guest’s vehicles will not fit in or on your property, you have too many guests!
Respecting Your Neighbors
· Keep the noise level down especially with large groups and parties.
· A 01:30 am noise curfew should be respected.
· Do not allow guests on neighboring property. Property Owners are responsible to ensure your guests know your property boundaries.
· Garbage & trash should be accommodated in refuse containers. The piling of excess trash bags outside or on top the refuse container(s) is unacceptable due to wildlife tearing into the bags and sitting for days until the refuse companies scheduled pickup. These companies will NOT pick up excess trash outside of their containers. Excess garbage should be hauled off by your guests. Your neighbors should not have to clean up after your guests!
· Pool, parks, boat ramp/Dock are for property owners that are current and paid in full of their annual assessment. These amenities are NOT meant for STR guests use, nor do we have the capacity to accommodate them.
· Outdoor fires are restricted to “on property” fire pits and not allowed during burn bans or on common areas / amenities.
· TPOA reserves the right to assess fines on a case by case basis to the STR property owners for the following violations:
o Vehicles blocking any other property owners access to their home / property - $500
o Excessive garbage / trash pick up - $100 and up
o First Responders access blocked - $1000 and up
o Police called to STR residence due to disturbance - $500 and up
o Noise Complaints – 1stoffense – Warning, 2ndoffense - $100 and up
o Damage to common areas - $500 and cost of repairs
o Revocation of TPOA access card due to repeated violations
We highly encourage all TPOA property Owners and guests to be good neighbors and be respectful to your neighbors. We do not want to be put in the position to severely restrict STR use in our Governing Documents, as some cities have had to do in Texas. We hope all owners agree that with these policies and guidelines so that we can all enjoy our community and be mindful of others. It is the singular responsibility of the property owner of the STR, to ensure your guests abide by these Policies and Guidelines. Some guests have no concern for the long-term atmosphere in the neighborhood. Please ensure that they do!
Any questions, comments, additions should be sent to your TPOA Board of Directors listed on our website: www.thunderbirdpoint.com.

There is no leash law in Camp County, BUT please keep your pets on your own property and don't allow them to run loose!
Most break-ins have a common theme - poor lighting on the property! Consider installing LED security lights, they work great and are very cheap to use.

We are located within the Thunderbird Point Subdivision but serve many of the surrounding communities, including Hills Point, Pistol Mills, Oak Ridge, Sunset Bay, Meadows Lake, "The Point", Eagle Shores, etc. TVFD works closely with the Pittsburg Fire Department and our fire fighters are on call 24/7! We are "first responders" as often we can get to the fire ahead of other departments depending on the location of the event.
TVFD is not only about fires. We respond to medical emergencies in our community before the ambulance arrives which can mean the difference between life and death, especially in rural areas.
In our continuing effort to raise funds and recruit members, we have held numerous fund raisers including several fish fry's, gumbo cook off's, chili cook off's, and pancake breakfasts. We have used some of these funds to buy "bunker gear" which is our protective garments, a fire engine truck, install a flag pole at the firehouse, maintain our two brush fire trucks, purchase a pump so that we can take water from the lake where appropriate, add a new ladder and fire extinguishers so that our volunteers can go into harms way as fully prepared as possible. Fire fighting is very important to our community and requires a fair amount of funds to keep operating! Donations are encouraged and we thank you for your continued support!
If you would like to explore the possibility of joining our Department, please contact TVFD Board President Darrell Corry at email@example.com.
Emergency Response teams NEED you to have your 911 residence address clearly displayed on your property! Reflective numbers and street name clearly marked work best at night. Every second counts and wasting time trying to find your address can mean life or death!
