Information About Where You Live        

If you live in Anderson Mill West, your home is located within either Williamson or Travis county. It is not located within the City of Cedar Park, even though your address says "Cedar Park." Instead, we are within what is called the City of Cedar Park's Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ), which gives the Cedar Park certain authorities over our neighborhood. 

 

Since we are not located within city limits, we are governed and serviced by a Municipal Utility District (Williamson Travis County Municipal Utility District 1), or MUD for short, which functions like its own small government and provides those services that would otherwise be provided by a city, including water and sewer service, waste management, and park maintenance. Our MUD also serves the neighborhoods of Lakeline Oaks, Hunter's Glenn, and Volente Hills

Because we are located outside the city, property in AMW is not subject to zoning laws. However, we do have deed restrictions, which were prepared years ago by our neighborhood's developer. Per state law, MUDs are given the authority to enforce deed restrictions, and our MUD contracts with a third party to help with this.

 

Anderson Mill West Section Boundaries

       Deed Restriction Information       

The deed restrictions for the different sections of the AMW neighborhood were written at the time each section was developed. Therefore, the restrictions do vary somewhat depending on what part of the neighborhood you live in. To view your property's deed restrictions, see the AMW Section Boundaries map above to figure out which section you live in, and then visit the MUD's website to view the applicable deed restriction document. If you are unclear which section you are in based on the above map, see the official District map linked below.

(note: AMW sections are outlined in black dashes, and each section is labeled in small grey text "AMW #")

Amongst other deed restrictions for your property, all sections of AMW except Section 1 have rules regulating the general appearance and maintenance of properties through what is referred to as "unsightly articles." For a quick guide to what is considered "unsightly," see the Architectural Control Committee section below.

If you have questions about your deed restrictions, or if you have received a violation, want to report a violation, or believe violations in your area are not being adequately addressed, please see the MUD's website for the appropriate contact information.

 

The MUD board holds Deed Restriction meetings on the 2nd Wednesday each month where residents are encouraged to attend if they have a particular issue.  (They also hold their regular MUD board meetings every 3rd Wednesday).  Check out the MUD calendar for more information.

Although AMWNA has no authority to enforce our neighborhood's deed restrictions, please feel free to reach out to us if you are having any problems getting your issue addressed and we'd be happy to help in any way we can.

       Architectural Control Committee        

If you plan on making exterior improvements or changes to your property, you must submit an application and accompanying documents to the AMW Architectural Control Committee (ACC) so they can review the plans for compliance with your property's deed restrictions. Please visit the MUD website for submittal requirements. To contact the ACC directly, send an email to amwnaacc@gmail.com

The ACC is a subcommittee of AMWNA and is comprised of two members (currently Jack Swan and Catherine Franke), elected by the membership of AMWNA, who serve 2-year staggered terms. The functions and authority of the ACC are defined in the deed restrictions of AMW. In summary, the ACC has two major roles in the enforcement of the deed restrictions:

  1. The ACC is responsible for reviewing plans submitted by property owners for exterior improvements to their lot. The ACC reviews these plans to ensure the proposed improvements are in compliance with the deed restrictions applicable to the property.​

  2. In all sections of AMW except Section 1, the deed restriction documents include rules regulating the general appearance and maintenance of properties through what is referred to as "unsightly articles." Along with certain specific rules about what constitutes an unsightly article (see Quick Guide below), the ACC is given discretion to determine whether or not something is considered unsightly under this section of the deed restrictions. Specific rulings are then used to help evaluate deed restriction compliance moving forward.
