Rockwood's Board of Directors meets the third Monday of each month in the Recreational Facility Patio Room, 7:00 p.m. All homeowners are invited, and encouraged, to attend. Social distancing rules apply
Information traditionally provided at the annual meeting, which was cancelled this year due to Covid issues – the annual budget, updates on facilities and grounds, pool manager introductions and program updates – is always available, along with addressing any other issues you may have.
We have two new members of the board! Mac Carter has taken on treasurer. Jordan Swan has volunteered to organize social activities. Madella Harrison, already serving on the board as an at-large member, has agreed to manage communications.
Current projects of the board are to continue revitalization of the park area and address any concerns of the residents regarding security. The board works closely with HOA Management to review noted homeowner covenant violations and communications.
The Wichita Police Department assigns a community policing officer to the Rockwood area who provides monthly reports to the board on activities and security concerns in the Rockwood area. Officer Alli Larison has been assisting Rockwood.
A number of traditional Rockwood spring activities are in the works. Watch your emails and the Rockwood website for current information
The volleyball nets are up, the park is greened up with new seating and a spruced up playground. Ready for picnics, kids ball games and relaxing.

AND A REMINDER - SLOW IT DOWN GOING THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD! THE SPEED LIMIT IS 30 MPH, BUT BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR KIDS ON BIKES, AND NEIGHBORS WALKING!
Rockwood Park is a great place to get the family together, let the kids run loose, play ball, picnic, let the dog off the leash for a bit. We're working on a plan to make it better!
Work continues on the park to make it an even better place to play, picnic or just visit. Benches to increase the seating throughout the park are planned for this spring. With the new/spruced up picnic tables, garden area and everything trimmed up, the park is looking ready for visitors. Spring is on its way, even if in spirts, come down and check it all out.
Monies have been budgeted for park improvements in 2021. Have ideas? Want to help? If you have ideas to help improve the park - how it looks, plantings, seating, group activities, perhaps an expanded pickleball court, now is a great time to pass those ideas along to a board member.
The past several years the Board has worked diligently to budget and plan for updating and maintaining Rockwood investments. This year the board was able to see the completion or significant progress on multiple projects which will help protect Rockwood's investment for many years to come.
· The entire perimeter wall was repaired, power washed and painted with a lighter color, high quality acrylic paint
· Trees and bushes were trimmed back to aid in having a clean surface to paint
Rockwood Entrances (in the works)
· Updating landscaping
· Adding solar lighting
Have ideas? Want to help? Now is a great time to pass those ideas along to a board member.

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.
Please email the Association in order to receive email alerts, notice of neighborhood activities and newsletters. Your email is never shared.
