Please consider the following pool rules, while using the Pool: • Pool parties are not allowed at the pool. • Private swim lessons are not allowed at the community pool due to vendor and insurance compliance. • Keep the pool area and bathrooms clean. • The life rings are not to be used as toys. In case of any eventuality at the pool, they are critical for safety and rescue operation. • If brought down to the pool deck, please return the patio chairs to the covered patio. • In addition, to these, a complete list of rules is posted at the pool. *VLP welcomed TAE as our new pool management company in early July! The security camera system has been upgraded for improved vision and monitoring. NEW POOL CARDS New pool cards have been issued to all residents who had pool cards earlier. If you did not exchange your old card for a new one or if you don’t have a pool card, please contact Lauren Hunt at contactus.tx Monthly HOA Meetings: Change of Venue We encourage all residents to participate in the monthly HOA meetings. It is your forum to share suggestions, get an update on neighborhood activities and stay connected with each other. When: The meetings are often held the first Monday evening of each month (except on Holidays). Venue: To escape the summer heat, the monthly HOA meetings will be held indoors and NOT at the community centre. Please be on the lookout for communication from FirstService Residential the Friday before the meeting. Notification: If for some reason, you do not receive an email, please check your spam folder and also ask your neighbor/s about it. We look forward to seeing you at the next Board Meeting! VLP SAFETY TIPS: DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR FOR SOLICITORS Officer Glentzer shares the following valuable information regarding safety: • DO NOT OPEN your DOOR for solicitors. As a community we should not encourage them by opening our doors. If a solicitor refuses to get off your property, please call 911 immediately to report them. • Promply collect your packages when they are delivered, as thieves are more than ready to take parcels left on doorsteps. • When shopping or stopping at the bank, be aware of your surroundings and ALWAYS lock your car. Home safety tips: • Activate your alarm when leaving • Lock all windows and doors before leaving • Place a lock on your backyard gate so would be burglars do not have access to your backyard • Check into updating and upgrading your alarm system and installing glass break sensors and test system for accuracy 4 March 2018 | Villages at Lakepointe Community Newsletter

• Place alarm signs/stickers in visible places • Make sure each of your vehicles has a VLP sticker displayed (stickers can be obtained at monthly Board meetings) • Remove all valuables and always lock vehicles • Get to know your neighbors and become familiar with their vehicles - notice cars that seem suspicious • Call 713-221-6000 with non-emergency issues and 911 with emergencies • Let our very own Deputy Glentzer (713-471-1882) know if you will be away so he can keep an eye on your home To obtain an alarm permit, please contact Harris County Alarm Detail at 713-755-4600 or visit HOME IMPROVEMENTS AND TREE TRIMMING While we all love home improvements, please be sure to obtain approval prior to beginning. A complete list of the deed restrictions can be found on the website, as well as through FirstService Residential. These items are mandatory, meaning all residents must abide by them. Things such as landscaping, painting or staining, adding iron driveway fences, mailboxes, storm doors and additions such as sheds, gates or pergolas are on the list. The architectural committee enforces deed restrictions at all times and it is taken very seriously. Forms for ARC Committee approval are on the website. Some simple things that help keep our neighborhood beautiful are: • Keeping your grass cut regularly, bushes trimmed and beds free of weeds • Keeping tree limbs trimmed high enough so that people walking do not get hurt and street signs can be easily seen. Please be aware that you are responsible for the condition of your tree branches and are the responsible party if someone gets hurt while on your property. • Replacing dead shrubbery - required along street facing fencing • Keeping fences stained with the approved colors: Behr Exterior Wood Stain in Terra Cotta (DP-396), Cappuccino Solid (DP-529) and Valise Solid (SC-123). Please note that FirstService Residential will be sending letters to residents that are non-compliant. These deed restrictions are mandatory, not a choice! By complying with the guidelines, we maintain a consistently beautiful neighborhood. Plus, it helps property values! Please take a look at your trees to determine if they need attention. There are many companies available (various companies advertise in this newsletter) to trim trees in order to make it safer for everyone out and about in VLP.
