Shannon Ridge News.

Dear Friends,

Here’s the latest news:

1.  Many thanks to those who helped make Halloween such a success for our kids especially those who provided treats.

2.  Vehicles vs. deer.  Here are a few tips to avoid injuring or killing them and incurring costly repairs to your vehicle.

  - Follow the 30-mph speed limit.

  - If you see a deer, immediately slow way down and look for others since they are herd animals.  Be prepared to stop since they can panic and dart in front of or kamikaze into the side of your vehicle.

  - Don't tailgate and be prepared to slow down or stop when following another vehicle as they may spot danger before you do.

3.  Q & A:  Off-road vehicles
Q:  Can you put something in your newsletter regarding off-road vehicles such as go carts, dune buggies, four-wheelers, motorbikes, etc.?  The noise they create is quite a nuisance.  

A:  Shannon Ridge is a restricted residential neighborhood, not a track for motorized off-road vehicles.  Most residents choose to live in our community because of its quiet and peaceful nature as provided by our restrictions that prohibit activities that create an annoyance or nuisance.  Operate motorized off-road vehicles recreationally outside our subdivision such as Cycle Ranch Motocross Park (, 2066 CR 405, Floresville, TX.  Quiet, battery-powered off-road vehicles may be used recreationally on lots if they don’t generate noise or create some other nuisance.  (In Wilson County, it is illegal to operate any off-road vehicle on our roads.)

4.  Veterans Day salute!  We salute all our veterans and their families for their dedicated service and sacrifice for our country.  Special thanks to those who proudly fly the American and military service flags and keep them looking sharp.


God bless, thanks so much for your support, and have a great weekend!

OCTOBER 18, 2020

Dear Friends,
Here’s the latest news:

1.  Halloween, October 31.  Volunteers needed.  If you haven't already done so, please email me at if you can hand out treats or would like us to do so for you.  Please also let me know if you will be pulling a trailer and have room for others. 


6:30 PM:  Drivers assemble at the corner of Lucky Ln and Shamrock Dr.  If no one will be home to hand out treats, please bring them with you for distribution at the assembly point.  Please bring blankets to keep your kids warm and use your flashers for safety.

6:45-8:30 PM:  Hand out treats.  Setting up at the side of the road will speed up the process; keep a light on so the drivers can see you.

[Our neighborhood covers a huge area.  To see the maximum number of kids, many people set up along the most heavily traveled roads on Halloween: Shannon Ridge Dr (west of Emerald), Shamrock (west of Lucky), Tipperary (east of Blarney), Killarney (west of Emerald), Leprechaun (between Shannon Ridge Dr and Killarney), and Emerald (between Shannon Ridge Dr and Killarney).]

To keep everyone healthy, please follow COVID-19 social distancing and mask guidelines.  For example, those handing out treats may want to place treats on a table and stay back 6 feet from the kids.

2.  Fall Cleanup/Maintenance.  Fall is a great time to spruce up your property.

     a. Stone, brick, lumber, pipes, metal, concrete blocks, pallets, tires, fencing and other materials must be stored within an enclosure (such as a shed or privacy fence) to completely shield them from view from the road and surrounding lots.  For leftover stone and brick, many people place them around their trees, gardens, or patios to artfully decorate their yard or use them for an outdoor fireplace, firepit, or walkway.

     b. Refuse and junk.  Please burn, dispose of in your trash container, or haul to the dump.

     c. All structures must be of neat appearance.  Please make necessary repairs and a fresh coat of paint.

     d. Metal for cash.  HWY 181 Recycle Center, 11618 S US HWY 181, (210-633-9098) pays cash for all kinds of metal, including vehicles.

3.  Traffic signal:  The installation of the traffic signal at the intersection of HWY 181 and Shannon Ridge Dr that we requested a few years ago began this week and will continue for about a month.

4.  Many thanks to all who help keep Shannon Ridge such an attractive and peaceful neighborhood.  Special thanks to those who have “adopted” portions of our roadsides and empty lots to keep them free of litter and other refuse and to Judy Feuge for leading our community garage sale.

God bless, thanks so much for your support, and have a great weekend!
