HIGH POINTE CROSSING FALL NEWSLETTER

October 28th, 2020

Welcome all Residents and Families!

We'd like to officially welcome you to our new community! Over the last 7 months, the HOA Board reviewed the bylaws supplied by Ryan Homes, met frequently with Integra, and collected feedback from residents. We are excited to share updates, address hot topics, and highlight general community information in our first newsletter created by the Board. 

Thank you for your patience and ongoing support as we continue to work together for our community. We do hope you find the information and resources within our website helpful.

Warm regards,

Kristine, Jill, David, John, and Joe
