Board Selects New Director

Director Preston Doege resigned as Lost Creek Board Director because he is moving out of the Lost Creek neighborhood. After interviewing several very qualified Lost Creek residents, the Board selected Ms. Leah Stewart to replace Mr. Doege.

Leah lives at 6108 Turtle Point Drive in Lost Creek and has been a happy Lost Creek resident since 2003. Born and raised in northern Virginia, Leah and her husband Tim Beets, a native Texan, settled in Austin after finishing school. With their two sons, Sam and Charlie, Leah and Tim take advantage of all Lost Creek has to offer, including its parks, swimming in nearby Barton Creek, hiking to Sculpture Falls, and Lost Creek Neighborhood Association festivities. Although she dreams of owning a lot compatible with a pool, she loves her neighbors on Turtle Point too much to trade for another wonderful Lost Creek home.

Leah has a B.S. in Genetics from Texas A&M University and a J.D. from the University of Virginia. She practice healthcare regulatory law at Beatty Bangle Strama PC. Although a busy law practice and motherhood leave little free time, Leah and Tim love to hike Big Bend and other national parks, enjoy fishing, boating, and swimming at the lakes, and exploring Central Texas.

Protect your home from wildfire

Lost Creek is actively working in the greenbelts to reduce the risk of wildfire by removing ladder fuel and raising the canopy along trails and the trailheads. This is a never ending project but you can help protect your investment by trimming trees and removing ladder fuel around your home. We have literature at our office located at 1305 Quaker Ridge to help guide you in protecting your home and here is a link to some videos for you to view to help you protect your home.

We also offer a free chipper service twice a year to help coordinate the removal of brush and ladder fuel to allow you to trim and remove trees around your home. We post the dates in our quarterly newsletters so please read them.
