Since 1985, the Wells Branch Neighborhood Association has been a unifying force in our great neighborhood and North Austin. Our all-volunteer group are active members of our community and the region and many have continued in leadership roles in Wells Branch and beyond.
Our efforts have allowed Wells Branch to become one of the great communities in Austin and as partners with the Wells Branch MUD, led to the development of our extensive parks, the construction of the Community and Recreation Centers, protection of our schools, better traffic management and controls and equity with toll roads just to name a few.
As Wells Branch has evolved so has our Association. Many of our long time residents remain active with the Association and continue such traditions as the publication of the Neighborhood News, the Easter Egg Hunt, 4th Fest Silent Auction, National Night Out, Pumpkin Painting in the Park and our Graveyard Photos at Trunk or Treat. We’ve hosted the Friday night portion of Luminary Fest for the last few years offering arts and crafts for the children inside the community center along with refreshments. In addition to our regular events, we’ve sponsored numerous safety seminars, including a self-protection class titled “Don’t Become a Victim” given by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office and a Teens & Moms Safety Seminar last year as well as several Teen Safety Seminars over the last few years. We’ve also hosted multiple candidate forums for School Board Trustee and MUD Board elections.
In February, we have our Annual Meeting and Elections. Next comes our Easter Egg Hunt at the end of March, a meeting with RRISD on the changes to our elementary schools and then we’re into months of prep work for the Silent Auction. Add six editions of the newsletters each year and you can see, we’re busy all the time.
Being a member is easy. Though membership is voluntary, your $20 dues and our newsletter advertising are the only source of funding for the Association outside of the Silent Auction held on July 4th which we use to support the Easter Egg Hunt and National Night Out.
Please download your Membership Form today and contact us to volunteer. It will be well worth your time and effort to
“Keep Wells Branch Great!”
