Reminder: Entry Gate Open

Good Afternoon!

It has come to our attention that there are some questions about the gate being left open during the day. A blast email was sent out on June 11 advising  that the entry gate would be open due to construction around Longmire Cove and Longmire Pointe (see below). At that time, it was projected that the project would be completed by July 6. Due to all the rain last week, the construction will most likely be extended to approximately July 20, thus extending the opening of the gate. The gate is automatically opened at 7 am and closed at 5 pm, Monday – Friday. We are looking into why both gates have been open instead of just the entry gate. Hopefully that can be fixed.

If you are aware of any neighbors who do not get the blast emails, please ask them to email Diane Newton at lolcvicepres@gmail.com. Ask them to include their names, street address, email addresses and phone numbers. Thank you so much!

Have a great day!

Good day LOLC Neighbors,

A meeting was conducted with the City Contractor for the lift station work on Longmire Pointe on June 11, 2020. The work will begin Monday June 15, 2020 at 7 am and continue for about three weeks (+/- July 6, 2020). During this time, we will be leaving the entry gate open each weekday from 7 am to 5 pm. The contractor was advised if they need additional days to contact the Board. There will be some good fill material excavated and instead of hauling it off they have agreed to place it in the Longmire Cove/Longmire Pointe median as well as down by the Boat Launch. This will only be good soil and they will be monitored to make sure we do not get any unsuitable fill material. The new footprint will be a little larger than the current, but they will be placing same type plants around it once work complete as well as restoring any damaged sod. Other good news is the existing trees will not be disturbed. If anyone wants to know the exact area and see the extent, you can let Michael White know and he will be happy to show you.

Another subject of interest is we are obtaining bids to make repairs to our roads and some curb and gutter. We expect to come to an agreement soon and hope to start work in July 2020. All this work means we will be having some road blockages and diversions and we ask all to be patient as well as please drive safely.

Kind regards, 
Your 2020 LOLC Board

Gate Damaged on March 25

Good day LOLC Neighbors,

The entry gate is not in place because one of the community landscapers used it as an exit gate on Tuesday. A bad decision on his part that resulted in his trailer catching the gate and lifting it up off the hinges. Damage to the gate and his trailer is significant but the landscaper will be bearing the cost of all repairs.

All Gates has been contacted and will begin repairs by the end of this week, however it may be a couple weeks before the gate is back in place.

Please let this be a reminder to all that the ENTRY gate is for entry and the EXIT gate is for exit. Also understand that the sensors for the EXIT gate are about twenty-five feet before the Exit gate and if you go past them the EXIT gate will not operate. So please approach the EXIT gate slowly pausing about twenty feet back so the sensors can operate as intended.

Kind regards,
Your 2020 LOLC Board

Boating Safety Reminders

Good Day!

Just a reminder that boating rules on Lake Conroe require that all operators of vessels and watercraft:

  • Maintain a “no wake” speed when operating within 100 feet of any Private Structure (dock, bulkhead). Effectively this means our cove, between Longmire Trail/Trace and Longmire Cove homes, is a no-wake zone.
  • Maintain a “no wake” speed within 50 feet of another vessel or person, except for a water skier pulled by such vessel.

Maintain “minimum planing speed” during the period from one half-hour after sunset to one half-hour before sunrise.

The link for the Lake Conroe Rules and Regulations is http://www.sjra.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Lake-Conroe-Rules-and-Regulations-2015.pdf for your information.

Have a safe and happy summer on the lake!

Remote Gate Access

Happy Memorial Day!

As summer quickly approaches, this is just a reminder to keep our neighborhood as secure as possible by using the remote entry system for your non-family guests and contractors. They can use the gate callbox to contact you for remote entry:

  1. They will punch in your personal call box number (i.e. 000#) on the gate callbox or scroll through the callbox directory alphabetically for your name and press “Call”. 
  2. When you answer the call, you press “9” on your phone to open the gate. If a single “9” does not work, try pressing “9” four times in a quick succession. 
  3. Once the gate starts to open, you will hear a tone and be immediately disconnected.

Your call box number is associated with your name in the call box outside the entrance to LOLC. You can find your call box number by accessing the name directory in the call box (press the letter A or Z buttons to scroll up or down to locate your last name). The contact number can be a landline or cell number.

If someone calls you from the callbox and you are not expecting company, please do not allow them access. They need to contact the person they are coming to visit.

If you need to know your call box number, if your name is not in the call box or if you need to update the phone number, please email Michael White at lolcpresident@gmail.com. Please give him your first / last name and your LOLC address with the phone number (landline or cell number) you wish to use.

Thank You!

Buoys and Lake Safety – May 15, 2020

Good Evening LOLC Neighbors,

 On Wednesday May 13, 2020 we replaced one buoy lost during Harvey that is permitted by the SJRA and relocated one other buoy at the Longmire Pointe Cove entrance. We also relocated three buoys at the LOLC Boat ramp to funnel the boaters toward the middle and keep them away from the docks along the LOLC shoreline. By doing so we have made the area safer and hopefully there will not be a need to add any more buoys in the boat launch area. This was all done in compliance with the SJRA.

 It is now up to the homeowners along LOLC shorelines to watch and see if boaters violate the buoy rules. If they do the homeowners should first take a photo or video of the violating vessel and report the incident to the Constable Precinct 1 at 936-539-7821 and/or Dispatch at 936-760-5800. If you can’t get a photo or video, you should still call and report the incident requesting an officer patrol the area. The link for the Lake Conroe Rules and Regulations is http://www.sjra.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Lake-Conroe-Rules-and-Regulations-2015.pdf for your information.

 We ask you advise your guests that may be using your watercraft or coming to visit in theirs that they abide by these rules. This message needs to be shared with all, as watercraft belonging to LOLC residents have been observed going too fast in our coves. It is also requested everyone be aware the boat launch area is for LOLC Resident boating only and shall not be used for parking vehicles not associated with boating.

 Thank you to David Perciful, Jim Noser, and Ken Matre for their help in working the buoys.

 Be safe when boating,
Your 2020 LOLC Board
