The Village of Winding Trails

Spring 2020 Newsletter

Our annual subdivision meeting was held January 3, 2020. The 2020 budget was approved and the assessments will remain at $275 for Bath and Tennis, and $110 for Winding Trails. Ray Edwards was re-elected as a trustee. He ran unopposed. The budget and minutes of the meeting can be found on our web site, www.windingtrails.us.

Folks use our web site too see what is happening in our neighborhood. It has information about the pool, architectural questions, our indentures, events and other very useful information.

We communicate with our residents by e-mail, web site, and US mail.  If you want to be on our e-mail list contact Richard Baricko at 636-458-4576. He is our Web master. All information is keep confidential.

The ID card system for accessing the pool is still in use for this year. You will also be asked to sign in as you enter the pool. If your dues are paid before the end of May, then David Rosen McGinnis (636-821-3061) will deliver your ID card sticker. Any new neighbors needing ID cards please contact David directly. Assessments not paid means no admittance to the pool.

This past year we resurfaced the tennis courts, replaced the hot water heater, and painted the pool. A sink hole has developed on the pool parking lot. We are monitoring it to see what it will take to fix it.

The Wi-Fi is still up and running at the pool. Check with trustee David Rosen-McGinnis (636-821-3061) for details.

 Now for a few items related to our neighborhood:


All the homes in our neighborhood have three car garages with accompanying driveways, please use them to park your cars not the streets.  When large vehicles, such as trash trucks, emergency vehicles and snowplows traverse the streets with parked cars, they have a very difficult time maneuvering around them.  The Waste Connection truck drivers have complained to us about the parked cars. They find it very difficult maneuvering around parked cars especially on the cul de sacs.  Stop parking on Thunderhead Canyon Road.  Parked cars hinder the view of drivers traversing the route especially on the hills.

So we are asking you to be considerate of your neighbors.

Second, please maintain your yards and homes.  Well maintained properties add value to our neighborhood.

Third, if you are planning to make changes to the exterior of your home then obtain the architectural forms from our web site and submit them to Rick Pfarr (636-405-1573) for review and approval.

Fourth, keep your trash/recycle bins out of sight, best to store them in your garage. Place them out no more than 24 hours before pick-up (Tuesday and Wednesday).

Fifth, when walking your dog, please be considerate to your neighbors and pick up your dog’s waste especially true on the common ground around the pool and creek side. We have posted signs asking for your compliance.

When driving in our neighborhood obey the speed limits, especially on Still Creek and Prospector Ridge. Many of our new residents have small children and we do not want them harmed.

We want to thank all the folks who help with the Luminaries, Cookie, Exchange, Progressive Dinner, and the Beautification Committee.

Have a nice summer and enjoy the facilities offered in our neighborhood.

Your trustees,

Ray Edwards                  David Rosen-McGinnis            Rick Pfarr
