The Castlegate II pool will open on Friday, June 5 with modified hours and conditions to abide by recommendations of Gov. Abbott and the CDC. Please note the following:

  • Hours: 12 noon – 7:00 p.m. with staff at the front gate.
  • Cleanings will be performed nightly.
  • Pool furniture has been removed temporarily. You are welcome to bring your own but must take it home with you.
  • Temporarily, any items left at the pool will be disposed of at the end of the day. We will not store lost and found items.
  • Max capacity in the pool facility will be capped at 80 people, which is 25% of the overall official capacity of 320 people, to maintain compliance with guidelines set forth by Gov. Abbott.
  • We ask that you limit your time at the pool to 1 hour to allow more families to use the pool per day.
  • When visiting the pool, please practice social distancing and healthy hygiene as recommended by the CDC. Follow the link to see the CDC’s Considerations for Public Pools, Hot Tubs, and Water Playgrounds During COVID-19.

Please note: All persons using the pool do so at their own risk and expense. All persons using the pool agree to abide by the rules for use of the facility, and agree to practice recommended social distancing and behavior recommended by the CDC and the Governor of Texas to combat the spread of COVID-19 or other infectious disease. The CGII HOA assumes no responsibility for any accident, illness, death, or injury during or after such use or for any loss or damage to personal property. Residents are responsible for the actions of their children and guests.

We will update the HOA website with any changes in conditions such as extended hours of operation, extended pool season, furniture availability, etc.

On the evening of Tuesday, May 19, 2020, the Castlegate II Board met for an emergency executive session to discuss the feasibility of opening the neighborhood pool. After taking into consideration the new mandated protocols updated by Governor Abbott on May 18th, the board unanimously decided that it is in the best interest of the association to NOT open the pool at this time.

The main factors discussed when making this decision are:

  •  Financial feasibility
    – Financially, the association is not able to cover the costs it would take to follow the newest protocols regarding cleaning and sanitization. The cost to follow these protocols is estimated at $8,000 for 4 weeks vs. the budgeted cleaning cost of $300 a month.
  • Insurance liability
    – During these unprecedented times, it is nearly impossible to know the depth of liability and risks associated with opening community amenities too soon. We have asked and received notice from the insurance carrier that our community would be liable for any claims and associated costs arising from COVID-19 that occurred at any of our amenities.

The following issues have been discussed and will be addressed in the upcoming weeks:

  • The board will reconvene and reexamine the situation as the Open Texas plan progresses. It is our hope and desire to open the pool for our neighbors and community members as soon as feasibly possible.
  • A detailed liability waiver covering COVID-19 issues will be created after consulting with the association’s attorney. Families will be required to sign the wavier prior to utilizing the pool.
  • If circumstances allow, it is our intention to extend the pool season beyond the normal dates to compensate for the lost time.

Many families are anxious to use the pool. We understand! The board allocated a significant portion of the budget to much needed pool repairs to make this the best pool season yet. Unfortunately, we could not predict a pandemic sweeping through the country and changing our plans. We hope that you all will appreciate and understand that we are doing what we think is best to keep our community safe as well as protect us from legal liability. We will continue to monitor this situation, as we have been, daily. Stay safe and healthy!

Governor Greg Abbott filed Executive Order 21 on May 5, 2020 relating to the expanded reopening of services as part of the safe, strategic plan to Open Texas in response to the COVID-19 disaster.  We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting news about reopening of the Castlegate II Community Pool. The pool will re-open on Friday, May 22, but will be limited to 25% capacity per the Governor’s order. 

Overall capacity for the CGII pool area is 320 people. Therefore, the 25% capacity will be capped at 80 people. Residents are responsible for self-monitoring the total number present before entering.  While in the pool area, you must practice social distancing and we ask that you limit your time at the pool to 2 hours to allow more families to use the pool per day.  Pool parties will not be scheduled or allowed until further notice.

Entering the CGII Pool Area will be AT YOUR OWN RISK and neither CGII HOA nor Aggieland Homes offers any guarantee regarding your safety from COVID-19.

The 2nd Quarterly meeting has been called for Monday, April 27th at 5:00 p.m. via ZOOM. See deatils below:

Dear Residents,

At Aggieland Houses the safety and well-being of our community and employees is our priority. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation and taking steps to help keep our community safe. We are taking extra measures, including frequent sanitation of common areas in our office, operating with only essential personnel, and ask residents to call or email rather than visit our offices in person. The link to Homeowner Web Access (for common area work orders and HOA payments) is at the bottom of this letter, all non-emergency common area work orders will be held until a later date to limit exposure.

After discussions with our HOA Board Members this morning, we have decided that we will cancel all events at the event center for the next two weeks beginning 3/16/2020. This was not an easy decision, but we feel it is in the best interest of our community to do so. We feel, at this time, that the situation remains too fluid to make a definitive decision regarding events beyond two weeks. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.  

The office will be open for essential business operations, vendors to pick up keys, and to answer phone calls. Please utilize our online system or drop box for payments. If you would like a receipt, please leave a note with your payment and we will email one to you.

The following actions are designed to help keep our residents, staff, partners and communities safe:

  • Aggieland Houses is postponing non-essential meetings and encouraging staff to conduct meetings as much as possible by telephone or online.
  • Aggieland Houses is asking residents to conduct business with us by phone, email or the website to reduce opportunities for the virus to spread.
  • Aggieland Houses is ensuring adequate staffing to respond to an increase in residents who contact us by phone, or email. If you call and get the voicemail, please leave a detailed message and you will be called back ASAP.

Sanitation

  • Aggieland Houses has instructed staff on additional personal sanitation practices to ensure they are not transferring viruses to themselves or others.
  • Aggieland Houses is now cleaning common areas of buildings, sanitizing door handles, railings, bathrooms, and other frequently touched surfaces.
