Free Estimates MAID SERVICES 281-912-5036 Do You Know Your Deed Restrictions? In an effort to educate our residents, we’ll periodically highlight some deed restriction or other item that needs improvement in Westgate: In the Declaration of Covenants,…, Article VII, section P., pg. 25: It’s the responsibility of each resident “to prevent the development of any unclean, unhealthy, unsightly or unkempt condition …” Also, Article IX, section A, pg. 34: “Each Owner shall maintain and keep in good repair his or her Dwelling and all structures…” Spring is a great time to do all those chores around the house that make our homes look great and keep them in good shape. Some “honey-do” list items are as follows: • powerwashing the driveway and sidewalks • powerwashing the siding of the house to remove any mildew (especially on the side facing north) • trimming bushes and trees • weeding flowerbeds • refinishing a faded front door • removing and replacing dead grass, trees, shrubs • cleaning out the gutters • replacing broken screens • fixing fences Following these instructions helps keep our neighborhood looking neat and thus keeps up our property values. Home condition tends to be a contagious condition-good or bad. Let’s be considerate of our neighbors! COPIES OF ALL WESTGATE FOUNDING DOCUMENTS (including the ARC form) can be downloaded from the Westgate website www.westgatetx. net. They are located under the HOA tab. Procedure When Filing a Report with the Sheriff’s Dept. If you ever have to file a report with the Sheriff’s Department, whether after calling 911 or the nonemergency number (713-221-6000), be sure to let the deputy know that Westgate has a contract with the Sheriff’s Dept. through our MUD district (Harris County MUD #70). That way, the incident will be reported to our contract deputies, giving them information on what to look for in our community. Also, be sure to report the issue to our Crime Watch committee at They discuss the problems with our deputies as well. Recommended Tradespeople List on the Westgate Facebook Page Have you ever needed to call someone for repairs or to have work done, but you didn’t want to just pick someone out of the yellow pages? Well, we’ve begun a document that is our neighborhood’s personal “Angie’s List:” “Recommended Tradespeople And Businesses.” All people and businesses listed on it are recommended by people in Westgate who have had personal experiences with them. We also have a list for businesses actually owned by Westgate residents called “Westgate Residents who provide Services.” If you are a resident who owns a business, provide a description of your services, price range, history of your business, etc. Support your neighbors by checking it out; you might find what you need very close to home! To access the documents, go to and search for “Westgate Subdivision.” Look at the top of the page under “Files” and you’ll see them there! Add yours to the list! Streetlight Outages Report streetlight outages to Center Point Energy at www. or 713-207-2222. Let’s keep our community safe. You will need the pole number, the black and white numbers listed vertically on the pole, to report the outage. If no pole number is listed, on the website you can use the GIS map listed on the website link above. March 2018 | Westgate
