We thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Sincerely, Your Sheffield Board Deed Restriction Violations Do you know what the top three reasons management companies send out deed restriction letters? The first is not keeping your yard mowed and weeded. Mow your yard on a regular basis, keeping it a little higher in the summer months, which helps in water retention and crowding out weeds. The second is leaving your trashcans out in front of the house or garage. Trashcans should be kept out of sight (in the garage, behind the privacy fence or behind shrubs or a purpose built enclosure. Contact Crest Management if you wish to build a trashcan enclosure for Architectural Control forms. The third reason is mildew on the house siding. This often happens on shady areas of the house. Power washing or spraying with a cleaning solution for mildew often takes care of the problem. Garage Sale Signs Placing garage sale signs in the flower and shrub beds within the neighborhood is not permitted. Such signs found in the flower and shrub beds will be removed immediately and placed in the trash. Community Information and Meeting Notices If you are interested in receiving Board meeting email notifications, please go to the Crest website at and go to communities, then scroll down to Sheffield and there you will find a place to sign up with your email address and if you scroll to the bottom, you can obtain community information, legal documents or applications as well. Vandalism Remember, if you see suspicious activity in or around Sheffield, please immediately call the Harris County Sheriff’s Department at 713-221- 6000. Also, let Shannon at Crest Management know at 281-579-0761. Litter Pickup Just a reminder, if you see trash in the neighborhood, please be a good neighbor and pick it up and dispose of it properly. Otherwise, then trash will either end up in someone’s shrubbery or trees or else get washed down the storm sewers, contributing to mosquito breeding and backing up of the storm drains in times of heavy rains. Thanks to those of you who regularly pick up other people’s litter. March 2018 | Sheffield
