It's time to compile a new Rockwood directory! All Rockwood homeowners should have received an information request via mail from HOA Management for the 2020 Rockwood directory. The directory, which is free to Rockwood homeowners, has a sole purpose to keep us current on the Rockwood neighborhood. Please complete the information you receive and return in the enclosed envelope as soon as you receive it. This will help expedite the process of getting the directory printed and delivered to you as soon as possible.
The Rockwood Board wants to communicate to homeowners that this information is gathered strictly for the purpose of the directory; the directory is distributed ONLY to Rockwood homeowners (in paper form only-not electronic); and NO information is provided to any third-party, including advertisers.
If you have any questions regarding this process and/or the information gathered, please contact HOA Management or a member of the Rockwood board.
We thank The Wichita Police Department for holding a bike clinic for Rockwood 's elementary age children for a fun day of bicycle safety! The kids had a full day of learning and practicing bicycle safety, checking out WPD and WFD emergency vehicles and then taking a spin through the neighborhood. Pictures of the event are available on WPD's Facebook page. See you next year!
Check out the Rockwood Newsletter for some great tips to help increase your safety & security.

SAFETY FIRST - See Something? Say Something! Please pay attention to what is going on in your neighborhood. If you see anything that looks suspicious or out of the norm, please call 911. This is important at all times, but especially during this time of the year.
Please slow it down & watch for kids out on their bikes and people out walking, especially around the RRF!! Walkers - Please wear light colored , even reflective, clothing to be more visible to traffic.
IMPORTANT: The dumpster in the Recreational Facility parking lot is available for your use if space is available in the dumpster. PLEASE, if you take items to the dumpster, and it is full, DO NOT place items on top of or on the ground around the dumpster. The dumpster is emptied three times per week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday; please just wait until it has been emptied. Please, ask your contractors to dispose of refuse properly, NOT in the RRF dumpster. Your neighbors, not trash service personnel, are the ones cleaning up the area.
HOA Management Services is contracted to oversee daily operations of the neighborhood including maintenance, accounting and covenant enforcement. Please direct questions regarding landscaping or structural improvements, covenants, assessments or pool membership to our community manager.

Fences (new or replacement), decks, additions, sheds and paint color are among the most common improvements that may require approval. The covenants contain more specific information. The Approval Form is available here or a fillable form can be requested from HOA Management.
