The Woodlands Township is conducting a survey to gather community input for the Parks and Recreation Department. Survey questions include specifics related to sports fields, competitive swimming, parks, pools, trails and amenities. The goal of the survey is to understand the needs and wants of the community and prioritize them for possible implementation.
I would be very appreciative if you could send this out to your Village Associations membership, email list and social media channels. Having community input is critical to the success of this process!!
The public input survey is available online until February 28, 2019, at www.thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov/recreationsurveys

Indian Springs Village Association 2018 Holiday Lighting Winners
This year’s judges focused on homes and areas that have not had the opportunity to win in prior years and had displayed a significant amount of effort and commitment that was involved in this year’s displays.
This year’s Best House is 14 Golden Place, in Idlewood. This home which is owned and decorated by Dan and Lori Parr, has over 60 separate Christmas trees on display in what Dan described as “Santa’s Christmas tree forest”. Dan and Lori said their display required over 50 hours to assemble and several storage units.
Dan & Lori Parr
This year’s Best Neighborhood was given to the cul-de-sac on Lansend. This was a new display which involved choregraphing the lights at three houses and the cul-de-sac. Joe & Kimberly White, who live at 34 Lansend, started developing the lighting plans in August, with his neighbors Brian Ivey and Rob Haberkamp.

Successful Village Challenge
The Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) would like to thank everyone that participated in the Hands Only CPR Village Challenge. Not only did we learn how to potentially save a life but our village received second place and $700 to be added to our scholarship fund.
We invite all of our neighbors to participate in the next Village Challenge that runs from February 1, 2019 through October 15, 2019. This year’s challenge is focused on cutting down on distracted driving. To enter, residents will need to download the “Safe2Save” app on their smartphones. Once registered, Indian Springs residents will join the “Indian Springs Village Group” competition by using the invitation code “indian”. If the app is open, it will give one point while driving over 10mph without touching your phone. Additional details are posted on the Indian Spring Village website at https://www.indianspringsvillage.com/.
