2020 MESSAGE FROM BTW HOA PRESIDENT
Dear Neighbor,
My name is Bill Hoyt.  It has been my pleasure to serve on the Bent Tree West HOA Board of Directors since January 2016 and as your President since 2019.  Bent Tree West consists of 688 homes, with a fairly large geographical footprint.  As one of the largest HOAs in our area, our Board of committed and welcoming officers and committee leads always encourage residents to join us in managing our great neighborhood.  We all have busy lives and I know we care about the place we live and raise our families, our home.  The health and vibrancy of any neighborhood depends on the willingness of its residents to get involved and contribute to the better good of the community. 
 
Far North Dallas and Bent Tree West faces ongoing and ever-changing challenges.  Our flexibility and willingness to meet those challenges define who we are as a community.  I can honestly say, the only thing holding us back is our lack of ability to take advantage of the many talents of our neighbors (you).  It takes a village has become cliché but it is true.  Without commitment and support of our residents, our potential cannot be achieved.  
 
I ask each of you to think about how you can give back in some small way to your neighbors.  Whether it be serving on a HOA committee, patrolling our neighborhood 4-6 hours a month as a member of our VIP program, volunteering at Mitchell Elementary School, serving the Bent Tree West Swim and Tennis Club or helping in one of the community clean-up projects we are planning, just to name a few. If you are willing to help our HOA or VIP Program in some way, please email me at president@btwdallas.org.
 
However, If you can’t do any of these, please think about this.  If you don’t know your neighbor, please make it a point to say “Hi”.  Please make it a point to ask them what can I do to help.  Can I call you if I need a package picked up from my doorstep?  If I am out of town would you watch out for my home.  If I forget to shut my garage door or return my trash bin following trash day, please give me a call.  Better yet, just return the bin to its proper place.  Exchange phone numbers.  As you walk our streets, I encourage you to say “hi” to your neighbors.  A pleasant greeting and a smile goes a long way to brighten a person’s day and makes them feel proud to have chosen Bent Tree West as their home.  Looking forward to seeing you around the neighborhood.
 
Warmest Regards,
Bill
 
BE PART OF SOMETHING GREAT!  
Choosing a neighborhood to live in is a big decision.  We all want to get the best 'Bang for our Buck' and helping to maintain the neighborhood we live in can add value to each and every home in the neighborhood.  Every homeowner who pays dues helps cover the cost of maintaining our great neighborhood!
 
In addition:
HOA members receive our Directory
HOA members may receive BTW HOA Camera Footage when providing the Safety & Security Committee with a valid reason for the request 
HOA members are eligible to receive Yard of the Month honors
Members have voting rights during the Annual Meeting
GOOD KARMA - becoming a member gives you the satisfaction of knowing you are doing your part to help the neighborhood remain a GREAT place to live!
 
WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
Help cover the cost of maintaining our great neighborhood!
Keeping the common areas maintained benefits every resident in Bent Tree West.  While we live here, we get to enjoy the great feeling of living in a neighborhood with character and class.  If, or when, we move out, our homes will be worth more as a result of being located in a nice looking neighborhood.  Prospective buyers notice whether the neighborhood is well-maintained and are willing to pay more to live in a neighborhood that is!
 
WHERE DO MY DUES GO?
The dues are billed by the HOA early each calendar year, and are payable upon receipt.  Dues are used to finance the activity and mission of the association, as well as to preserve, protect and maintain the neighborhoods common property, security, landscaping, etc. Your dues are primarily used to pay for the ongoing expenses for maintenance of the entryways and the green spaces along the perimeter of the area.  By keeping our neighborhood looking it’s best, our property values also remain at their highest. By supporting the Homeowners Association, you help to ensure that our neighborhood continues to be a great place to live.  We cannot afford to let our neighborhood’s appearance and infrastructure start going downhill!  Just as realtors will tell you, it’s the “curb appeal” that most influences the salability of an individual home.  It is the overall appearance and maintenance level of our neighborhood’s common areas that greatly influence the desirability of Bent Tree West.
