Next Door App: This is a

Next Door App: This is a free app so homeowners can communicate instantly with one another. This app can be used to request referrals from other homeowners such as plumber, landscaper or a fence company. You can also post lost or found pets, report suspicious vehicle or person in the neighborhood. All you need to do is download the app and enter the information they request. The information that is requested is the same information you can already obtain online so do not let this deter you from looking into the app. Monthly Meeting: Copperbrook HOA would like to welcome all homeowners to come to our monthly meetings at La Madeleine the first Tuesday of every month at 5 PM. The open session where we welcome residents to attend starts at 6 PM. If the door to the meeting room is closed, simply knock and the Board will let you in. Please come share your ideas and learn of the progress on the latest projects and events in our neighborhood. It’s a great way to get involved and stay connected to your community. If you know ahead of time that you will attend or you have a particular concern that you would like added to the agenda, please call Juan at TXMGMT (832-910-7525). Renovations We are aware that on occasion homeowners receive letters from the management company that are considered unwarranted by the homeowner. If you plan to do a small renovation or do major cleaning and you know that you may have something unsightly in your driveway/ front yard for a short period of time, please call TXMGMT (832-910-7525) and make them aware of your activities so that she can make a note on your account in order to avoid a letter being sent out. If you are planning a major renovation to the exterior of your home by painting your house, replacing your fence or adding storage to your yard, remember to contact our neighborhood’s Architectural Review Committee. You can call TXMGMT (our management company) to inquire about the proper forms needed to make your submission and they will gladly email the forms to you. We hope to have these forms available for download on the community website soon. The Architectural Review Committee will review the request to make sure the request meets the neighborhoods deed restrictions. The committee’s approval must be granted before making such changes to the facades of the home such as paint colors, roof colors and burglar bars (which are prohibited on the front doors or any windows). Also, sheds and canopies should not be visible from the street. If you submit a request to the Architectural Review Committee and it gets denied, please call TXMGMT (our management company) to inquire as to why your project was denied. It may be as simple as additional information is needed (ex: paint color, pictures, lot survey). If you are thinking about a project you are invited to attend the monthly HOA meeting to get any questions answered prior to submission. If you need a copy of the deed restrictions, please email and we will send you a copy. Safety Park and Pool Safety: Parents please accompany all children to the park and pool for their safety. The playground opens at sunrise and closes at sundown. Please call 911 if you see any suspicious activity, persons or vehicles. This area is monitored by surveillance cameras, however as homeowners, we need to assist the police and play an active role in keeping our community safe! Neighborhood Safety: PLEASE lock your doors and remove all valuables so that there is little temptation and hopefully nothing taken if they do break in your vehicle. There have also been reports of crimes at the new park (Charles Austin Park) and so we urge you to be aware of your surroundings at all times. Please be alert to things such as unknown cars idling, circling the neighborhood, increased traffic at a particular home and driving slowly as if to stall for time. If you see this behavior, please call 911 and report 6 March 2018 | Copperbrook

® the suspicious activity. It would be helpful if you could provide any of the following information to the 911 operator or sheriff’s department when you call: description of the vehicle, person(s), time of day and/or license plate number. Please be discrete and keep in mind safety is priority. Also, if you notice a lot of traffic and multiple vehicles coming and going from a location please call the sheriff’s office and inform them of the high traffic volume of that location. It takes a community effort to keep a community safe. The HOA is cooperating with the local law enforcement in keeping this a safe community for our families. Surveillance Cameras: Surveillance cameras are installed at the pool house. The cameras are positioned to monitor the pool areas, the park grounds and the parking lot. HOA Board members have 24-hour access to view the ongoing activities of these areas. All suspicious activities will be reported to the Sheriff’s Office immediately. Committee Information If you’re thinking about getting more involved in our community, joining a committee is a great start! Feel free to attend a monthly meeting to learn more about these opportunities. The Copperbrook HOA is looking for volunteers for the following committees: EVENTS COMMITTEE: The events committee oversees the newly organized welcoming committee, which will be providing welcome baskets to new homeowners. The event committee is also responsible for decorating the monuments at Christmastime organizing the bi-annual garage sales and hosting the neighborhood events such as National Night Out and Snow Day at the Park. NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH COMMITTEE: The Copperbrook neighborhood watch committee NEEDS volunteers who are willing to drive around at different time to help keep an eye on things. The HOA would like to add more volunteers to provide greater coverage throughout the 24 hour day. If you would like to volunteer, please call Milton Turner at 281-859-6044. We could really use more patrols from 10 PM to 6 AM. Volunteers can select their time and will be requested to drive down each street and report any suspicious activity to the police and to inform the neighborhood watch committee chair of any activity observed. You will be issued a decal to place on your vehicle so as to identify you as part of the Crime Watch if requested. PARK AND YARD COMMITTEE: The park and yard committee check the park and pool areas to report any maintenance that needs to be done and also helps select the yard of the season. If you have a great idea for a committee and would like to chair that committee, we would love to hear from you. Our monthly meetings are the first Tuesday of the month.
