Meadowlakes offers a sense of “Secluded Security” and of community for its residents.  We are unique in a number of ways.  Few communities can boast of:

  • Lakeside surroundings where you can live on the waterfront or, if you do not live on the water, use the community’s lakeside park and boat ramp with open access to Lake Marble Falls;
  • Living in a pecan orchard containing roughly half of our streets or beside an 18-hole golf course offering great views for about one-third of our residents whose property borders the course;
  • Sharing the seclusion and security of a gated community with 24 hour/7 day guards – and being able to use your golf cart with your children or grandchildren on your streets;
  • Sharing that sense of a multi-generational community with other families, many of whom are retirees while just as many are young families with children.

We know many of our residents choose Meadowlakes for the security.  Our crime rate is almost non-existent.  Yes, as every community, we have a few vandals every once in a while – and a few of our drivers do not control their speed as they should.  Still, incidences are few, and our families and children enjoy a great, safe environment -- free from many of the worries in today’s society.

Meadowlakes founders and community members (our property owners) formed an association almost fifty years ago to try to achieve a lifestyle we enjoy today.  That association is the Meadowlakes Property Owners Association and includes every residential property owner within the community.  The Association is guided by the charter adopted by the founders in 1975 and by the covenants and bylaws that followed.  These guidelines provide a framework for maintaining and advancing the aesthetics, economic, and social values of our community.   

The Association’s business is managed through a 7-member Board of Directors, elected by the property owners.  The Board’s job is to balance the needs for maintaining and advancing the interests of the community as presented in its rules without unnecessary infringement of the personal and property rights of individual property owners.  That balance is best achieved when property owners actively participate in the Annual and Monthly meetings of the Board.  Property owners are encouraged and requested to attend the meetings – and, to become members of the Board to assure a solid cross-section of our community is represented in formulating plans and decisions of the Board. 

The annual meeting of the Association is held at 10 AM on the second Saturday of each October at the Meadowlakes clubhouse in Meadowlakes, currently the Hidden Falls Bistro & Bar.  The Monthly meetings are held at 6 PM on the second Tuesday of each month in the Meadowlakes City Hall.

As you drive in and around Meadowlakes, here are some suggestions that we hope you notice as  part of the Association: 

  • First, as you enter, you will be greeted by a security guard at the only entrance to Meadowlakes.  As mentioned before, the gate is guarded 24/7 to protect the security and privacy of our residents.  Visitors to our residents or to the golf course or restaurant and service personnel are registered at the gate and invited into Meadowlakes.  This gate and guard are how we have “secluded security.”
  • The streets, about 11 miles of them, belong to the Association, and the maintenance of the streets (which we strive to keep in very good condition) is the responsibility of the property owners, and one of our largest costs in the Association budget.  Oh, yes, you may notice our golf cart traffic. They have to follow the rules of the road as other vehicles, but they may be slow. Please be considerate.
  • You may notice that the homes in Meadowlakes all have a large amount of brick or stone.  That is because the homes in Meadowlakes conform to the Association’s architectural guidelines.
  • And, we hope you notice the remaining residential building sites are well maintained under covenant and ordinance.
  • Our parks are situated in five different areas of our community and offer varying respite for our residents and guests – please visit our tab on “PARKS” for more information. 
  • During the summer, you can visit the pool which is leased by the Association for the convenience of he residents.
  • And, if you are lucky enough to be here during our holidays such as Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Christmas, you will notice many of the homes are decorated to reflect the holiday. The POA sponsors events throughout the year for its residents. These may include Easter Egg Hunts, Easter golf cart parades, Memorial Day Barbeque & ceremony, 4th of July Parade and party, Christmas decoration contests, and other get-togethers throughout the year to encourage community.

Meadowlakes is not large: just under 2,000 residents living in just over 900 homes, and we will not likely get much larger as there are only a total of 1,020 lots in the City/Association, including residential and non-residential lost.  Although not large, our community and our community Association are strong both socially and financially as our founders envisioned Meadowlakes to be.  We invite you to visit our community and our Association to learn more.
