Please remember, the WBNA (Wells Branch Neighborhood Association) and the Wells Branch MUD are two different entities; ours is a volunteer community group, the other, a governmental body. In the interest of our shared residents, we do our best to report on MUD events and Board meetings in an objective manner so that each of you are aware of current topics and can research those that interest you for yourselves and form your own opinions. There is a wealth of information on the MUD website: www.wellsbranchmud.com. For more information on any of the topics below, please check there first. Information may be in the form of a featured story or in the MUD Board Meeting Minutes or Board Packets. If you have difficulty locating what you’re looking for, contact me at email@example.com and I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction.
Regular MUD Board meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month at the newly renovated Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive, unless otherwise posted. All residents are invited to attend. Meetings begin at 5:30pm with citizens communication at 6:30pm. Agendas are posted the week prior to the meeting at www.wellsbranchmud.com under the “Board” tab or follow the link from the WBNA website calendar.

Willow Bend Park
The MUD has engaged a design team to explore expansion of the children’s play area at Willow Bend Pool to include interactive water features, add permanent shade features to the adult pool area, redesign the play area and replace the existing playscape at Willow Bend Park, convert the existing baseball field to a dog park, add a pathway from Willow Bend Park to the Rec. Center and design a Skate Park adjacent to the Rec. Center. Tentatively, these features will be done in phases with the children’s play area at Willow Bend Pool having top priority so that it may be completed during the off season. Watch for updates as they become available.
