Rachel Schmutz at rschmutz@csutx.com Falcon Point East is governed by a Home Owners Association (HOA). This means that there is a set of documents that lets residents know what they can and cannot do on their property. Some of the most common mistakes that homeowners/renters make are: • Forgetting to cut and edge your grass on a regular basis: Frequency of maintenance depends on the weather, rate of growth, weeds, etc.; however, the maintenance must occur often enough to ensure the lawn is maintained to the community wide standard. • Forgetting to put up your trash can at the end of a trash collection day: Please put your trashcan and recycle bin away and out of public view. Leaving your can by the front of the garage door or on the side of the home warrants a letter from Community Solutions. • Not putting in a Home Improvement application before you make a modification to the exterior of your home. If in doubt, send Rachel Schmutz an email at rschmutz@csutx.com. You can also find a list of Teenage Job Seekers in the FPE Newsletter. Volunteers Needed We will need one volunteer from The Arbor, The Grove The Landing, & The Meadows to help place and remove garage sale signs before and after the event. The HOA will provide a gift certificate to each volunteer from the four neighborhoods. If your neighborhood does not have a volunteer it will be excluded from participating. Please send an email to mymagoo@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer for the event. The Falcon Point East Annual Garage Sale is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 8 AM-2 PM. The gates will remain open during this time. The rain date is Saturday, April 21 st . Nominations for Yard of the Month Yard of the Month is awarded during the summer months. If you have not received recognition for Yard of the Month within the last two years, please forward your name and address to llhornby@hotmail.com and mymagoo@gmail.com. Please start submitting your self nomination in February. All entries are reviewed prior to awarding a winner with a $50 gift card to the Houston Garden Centers.

Street Gutters and Drains: Please keep the street area in front of your house clean, so that leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, dirt and liter will not accumulate in the gutters next to the curb. Accumulated debris will end up being washed into the drains causing them to back up and flood the streets. This also applies to lawn contractors that are blowing debris into the street instead of bagging them. Falcon Point East Park: Dogs are NOT allowed in the Falcon Point East Park. Willow Fork Park: Dogs on a leash are welcome in the new Willow Fork Park (next to Cinco Ranch High School). Remember, if your dog poops, you must scoop. Gate Transmitter, Wallet Card and Code: If you wish to buy gate access equipment, you can contact the Gate Committee at FPE.gates@gmail.com. You are authorized to distribute your 6-digit code for personal use. Please be advised the code is linked to your address and there is a record available of its usage. You are expected to exercise prudence and due caution in the distribution of this entry code. Report any damage to or issues with the gate to Jon Benson at 281-728-3235.
