This weekend is the Annual April Alley Clean-Up. Since Bulk Trash pickup for Northwood Hills begins Monday, April 12, this is the perfect opportunity to tend to your alley and dispose of any brush or debris you clear out. Each homeowner is responsible for maintaining the area from their back property line to the center of the alley. That includes trimming bushes so they don't scrape cars or obstruct the alley. Trees that overhang the alley are required to be trimmed up 15 feet to allow clearance for garbage collection trucks. If trucks have to maneuver to avoid your branches, trash, or other debris, chances are they will cause damage to your alley in the process! Let's keep it clean. You can start placing items at your curb this Thursday, April 8.
The Northwood Hills Homeowners Association Annual Meeting will take place virtually this year due to COVID-19. The Zoom meeting will be held on Thursday, February 11th at 7pm.

The NHHA Board of Directors is interested in your feedback about our current programs, processes, and potential future improvements. We conducted a survey to help guide us in upcoming planning to lay the groundwork for an even better Northwood Hills neighborhood. The survey focused on our existing NHHA programs and your satisfaction. The 5-10 minute survey included: 1) A description of a current program offering, with examples of activities performed in that area. The list of examples will not be exhaustive, but will serve as a basis for forming an opinion. More details about our programs can be found on our website (northwoodhills.org), in prior Annual Reports, and in newsletters. 2) A request for your opinion about our performance in each existing program. 3) A request for your suggestions on what we should do differently or other services we should offer in each program. 4) An opportunity to rank our benefits in order of importance. 5) A free response section for you to provide general feedback regarding an area we didn’t ask about, or to make a suggestion for a program or activity we should offer. The survey is now closed. We really appreciate the time and effort of those [...]
For the past few years, NHHA has celebrated National Good Neighbor Day in various ways in late September. We have recognized residents who exemplified what it means to be a Good Neighbor; we hosted block parties to celebrate the sense of community we enjoy in our neighborhood; we supported our local Dallas Fire & Rescue First Responders; we donated toys to Medical City Children's Hospital and we hosted a blood drive. This year, the NHHA Board wants to focus on supporting healthcare workers, who are facing unprecedented demands and risk in the midst of the global pandemic. One local healthcare facility which has been hit especially hard since March is Parkland Hospital. They admitted their first COVID-19 patient on March 11 and opened the Tactical Care Unit (TCU) two weeks later. At the height of their patient load, they had converted five different wards to be COVID-specific. Medical professionals worked 12 hour shift after 12 hour shift, sometimes up to 6 shifts a week. Often they lived apart from immediate family and avoided spending time with other loved ones, out of caution. Thankfully, Parkland was recently able to close the TCU and start caring for patients in individual rooms. [...]
UPDATED AT 4:30PM JULY 3RD MAP/LIST OF PARTICIPANTS CAN BE FOUND HERE: Map of Houses Now in it's 27th year, the NHHA Independence Day Celebration is a signature event in Northwood Hills. COVID-19 has introduced new challenges this year, but with a little creativity, our neighborhood will still be able to celebrate our Independence safely. Instead of NHHA hosting a parade and festival at Northwood Hills Elementary, our residents will be the hosts and the festivities have the potential to span the entire neighborhood! Homes and yards will be decorated and residents will traverse our streets in golf carts, trucks, Jeeps, and antique and specialty cars, hopefully filled with costumed characters, decorated pets, and festive families. We'd like to thank our corporate sponsors, who help ensure NHHA is able to organize events like this. We appreciate their support! Rach Potter, Housed Real Estate Ready Roofing & Renovation Mitra Shamsa, The Shamsa Group Melinda Spence, Compass Real Estate Sunnyland Furniture Judy Switzer & Associates Traver Construction HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Decorate, Decorate, Decorate! Show your patriotism by placing decorations on your house, in your yard, in your trees, in your driveway, etc. Let NHHA know that you'll be decorating your property so we can [...]
Need an activity? We've put together a scavenger hunt inside the neighborhood. Print the list or save it to your phone and head out on a walk or drive to see if you can spot all the items. While you're at it, snap a photo of you or your kids on your excursion, or while doing anything else outside to keep yourselves occupied during this unusual time, and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to include your photos in an upcoming newsletter article about what our residents did to keep themselves occupied, happy, and engaged during the shelter in place orders.

The NHHA Board of Directors, along with dedicated volunteers, want to ensure our neighbors are safe and that you have what you need during the COVID-19 pandemic. We don't want any of our residents to forego essential items because they don't feel they can safely obtain them due to personally being immuno-compromised or having an at-risk household member. If you are unable to obtain necessary items during this time because of health reasons, please review the following list and contact your Board representative with your needs: Urgent Food Needs Paper Towels Toilet Paper Bottled Water Toiletries Medicine Pick-Up Other Essential Items We will do our best to accommodate you. We are also calling and dropping off letters to potentially at-risk residents who may not see our online posts. If you know of any of your neighbors in need, please forward their name and address to us so we can reach out. We know this is a difficult time for many of us, so let's work together to get through it. On behalf of the NHHA Board of Directors, Janet Marcum President
