West Memorial Tiger Sharks

Come one come all, to the West Memorial Pool located at 22415 Kingsland

Drive, Katy, Texas 77450 and support West Memorial Tiger Sharks on May

18 th , 9 AM-1 PM for their annual neighborhood car wash. Also joining us

at 11 AM, will be Katy’s very own Daddy Duncan’s BBQ with their food

truck. This is a great chance to try phenomenal barbeque and support

our neighborhood swim team.

If you are interested in joining the team you can register at: https://wmst.

Let’s Talk About It….

The West Memorial Civic Association has a duty to enforce neighborhood

regulations. These typically include violations of deed restrictions,

collection of annual assessments and related fees. The HOA Board’s

authority is established in state law for the purpose of maintaining

property values and quality of life. Enforcement proceeds along a defined

path that, to be fair, must be consistently applied. The process often

begins with a letter to the homeowner explaining the violation, which if

ignored, may eventually end up in a lawsuit. Fortunately, most violations

are resolved quickly following receipt of a letter. In rare circumstances the

Board sends the matter to its attorneys. The attorneys’ first objective is to

negotiate a settlement. Failing that, the Board must consider a lawsuit.

The Board positively hates to involve attorneys because its objective is

compliance not penalty. The attorney path is costly and slow and the fees

must eventually be collected from the homeowner, our neighbors. While

a case is pending the problem is not going away. The Board is eager to

meet with homeowners to negotiate a compliance plan but that process

must be initiated by the homeowner. A reasonable solution can usually

be agreed, especially when illness, loss of employment or other calamity

is involved. The Board meetings are held on the 4 th Tuesday of each

month (excluding May & December) beginning at 7 PM at the community

clubhouse on Kingsland Blvd.

2019 Annual Meeting Of Members

The West Memorial Civic Association 2019 Annual Meeting is scheduled

for Tuesday, May 28 th at the community clubhouse. There will be three (3)

positions elected at this meeting. If you are interested in seeking election to

the Board, please log on to the Association website at www.westmemorial.

org and completed a Board Candidate Questionnaire and submit to

management (scarey@highsierramanagement.com) as soon as possible

so that your information can be shared with the membership in advance

of the meeting. The floor will also be opened for further nominations at the

meeting. Formal notice of the Annual Meeting was mailed to all members

in late April so please watch your mail and save the date!

Home Improvements

Please remember that any exterior change to your home requires approval

from the Homeowners Association prior to performing the improvement

and/or addition. You can find the governing rules and application process

on the Association website at www.westmemorial.org or by contacting

management at thenderson@highsierramanagement.com.

Rules Of The Month: Curb Appeal

A buyer’s first impression of a neighborhood is from the curb. A favorable

impression translates into higher home values, quicker sales and a more

pleasant place to live. However, a couple of bad apples can cast an entire

street in a negative light.

Your Homeowners’ Association is responsible for enforcing numerous

deed restrictions and governing architectural controls that are designed

to protect the community appearance. Our management company

performs a monthly inspection of the entire community to identify

violations and pursue resolution.

The irony is that curb appeal is perhaps the easiest and least expensive

improvement one can consider. Unfortunately, in our busy lives we

sometimes put off simple maintenance until it creates an eyesore. What

used to be called “spring cleaning” is still important today. Here are a few

helpful reminders on how you can increase your curb appeal:

• Start by removing clutter and debris from the yard.

• Park inoperable vehicles in your garage, out of public view.

• Store cans and other personal items out of sight.

• Rake any remaining leaves, weed and mulch flowerbeds. Don’t forget

about removing the winter tree debris off of your roofs too!

• Fertilize lawns to encourage new growth and re-sod any brown spots.

• Prune trees and shrubbery as needed.

• Scrub or pressure wash mildew from the siding/brick, driveways and

sidewalks (Cleaners are available that help prevent mold and mildew).

• Replace fence boards as needed or a quick pressure wash and then a

clear weather sealant can make your fence look brand new and extend

its maintenance life.

Alert Alert!!

There have been numerous car break ins. The majority of targets have

been unlocked vehicles. Precinct 5 is aware of the issue, please report

any breaks to the constables for further investigation.

The pool is nearing completions, which will include new fencing, the

pools will be resurfaced and retitled with new lighting. In addition,

the deck will be pressured washed and the drains cleared for summer

operation. There has been a new pool maintenance company hired to

care for the pools throughout the year.

Be on the lookout for future park enhancements.

Seeking Volunteers

We are seeking volunteers for several upcoming projects. More

homeowner participation would be appreciated. Please email

volunteers@westmemorial.org for more information or questions.

West Memorial Updates

As you walk through the subdivisions, you might realize that in some areas,

we are experiencing severe erosion under the sidewalks. Depending on the

location and the cause, the problem might be repaired (at no cost to the

homeowner) by either West Memorial MUD at 281-392-2290 or hcmud81@

comcast.net and/or Harris County at 713-755-6405. As a homeowner, you are

responsible for the maintenance of sidewalks and driveways and should an

accident occur because the sidewalk is not in “good” condition, the liability

would be yours, as homeowner. So we encourage you to contact these two

parties and have them come out to decide when they can make the repairs.

Perhaps you don’t realize that we pay a per diem charge for every light in

the subdivision whether it is working or not. The lights are there for the

protection of you and your families so please if you see a bulb out, pick up

the phone and report it to Reliant at 713-207-2222. Don’t wait for or expect

someone else to do it - please be proactive for the sake of all our residents.

If you need a Constable for any reason, they are available 24/7 by calling

281-463-6666.

We have leash laws in the County, this is for the safety of all residents. In

addition, please carry a bag when you walk your dog and pick up your

dog’s bowel movements. I am confident everyone will appreciate your

being considerate on this point.

We are in the process of establishing a monthly newsletter, if you would

like to be included please send an email to pat@westmemorial.org.

Do not forget to sign in at our monthly HOA meetings. We would like to

include you on updates for the community and any email alerts.

West Memorial | May 2019 3

are written by the developer before the first home is constructed and

enforcing them. They can be changed, but a very large percentage vote of

homeowners is required to do so. Please let us know if you see a problem

in the neighborhood.

Gardening Tips For May

Warm weather means our gardens and landscapes are growing fast.

Here are some tasks to keep your landscape beautiful and productive:

Flowers: Time to plant summer blooming perennials and annuals

including plumbago, zinnias, angelonia, purslane, lobularia,

sunflowers, yellow bells, pride of Barbados, duranta and bat-faced

cuphea.

Vegetables: May is a great time to plant, from seed or nursery plants,

okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, pumpkins, basil,

peppers, lima beans, eggplant, garlic chives and Malabar greens. If

you don’t want to dedicate an area of your yard, consider planting

here and there in your flowerbeds. Edible landscaping is a popular

new trend!

Lawns: Water 1/2 to 1” of irrigation per week. A rain gauge or straight

sided container (such as a tuna fish can) will help you know how long

to run your irrigation system to apply 1/2”.

Weeding: Hand pull or hoe weeds while they are still young or better

yet, maintain a 3” layer of mulch in all vegetable and flowerbeds to

deter weeds from getting a start.

Pruning: Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to

promote new blooms.

Fertilizing: Fertilize flowerbeds and vegetable gardens w/slow release

organic fertilizer.

Water: Deep soakings between rain events is better than frequent

light sprinkling.

Birds: Spring migration continues until mid-May. Clean bird feeders!

Replace water in bird baths to avoid creating mosquito breeding

spots.

Scouting News

Ella Hummeldorf earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts

Ella Hummeldorf, a Sophmore at Tompkins High School, has earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts. Ella is a member of Troop 127007 and has been a

Girl Scout since she was in Kindergarten. For her project, Ella built garden boxes with the help of her brothers and a group of Boy Scouts from Troop

1103 for Goddard Preschool in Cinco Ranch NW. Her inspiration for the garden boxes was her grandfather who is currently in bad health. Obesity is a

growing problem in America and Ella is hoping the new generation of kids will make better choices. Her goal was to educate young children on the

importance of eating healthy and how vegetables play a big part in that. She wanted to teach them about vegetables in a fun way so she created the

garden boxes, supplied starter seeds and tools. She hopes they will have fun watching them grow and will teach future generations about growing

vegetables and healthy eating. Her brother, Henry Hummeldorf, was a recent contestant on MasterChef Junior so she enlisted his help with some

recipes. Together they created a fun cookbook for the kids and Henry talked to the children about the recipes and how to make vegetables fun. Here

is a photo of Ella and Henry teaching the children and introducing them to their new gardens.

Katy Heroes Honored

by Teenagers

Students from Tompkins High School, Tays Junior High

and Woodcreek Junior High, have gathered together to

honor a number of Katy teachers, coaches and community

leaders who are ‘heroes’ to the young people.

A special dinner and awards presentation was held by the

youth who are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ

of Latter-day Saints. Aged between 12 and 18, each of

them was inspired to choose one person who has had a

significant influence for good in their lives. The students

then personally invited their ‘hero’ to attend the dinner.

During the evening each of the youth gave a short speech

to introduce their hero and explain why they had had

such a significant impact on them.

Among the heroes was Danny Hill, Girls Program Director

at Albion Hurricanes FC. He was invited by Tompkins

Junior, Terin Graham. Terin also plays for the Tompkins

Varsity team, which is currently ranked number one in

the nation. She was thrilled to publicly thank Danny for

his incredible contribution to women’s soccer. Danny

commented, “I was very touched when Terin invited me to be honored at the dinner. The best part of our job is watching these kids grow into fantastic

young people. Terin always brings a smile to my face and when I stood there listening to her talk it gave me a great peace and understanding of why I

still do this job. Thank you Terin and family for believing in me all those years ago and your continued belief ever since.”

The purpose of the evening was to thank the many people in the community who sacrifice so much of their time and energy to guide and teach the

young people in Katy. Says Brad Tippetts, one of the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Katy, “As a parent and leader, it can be

a scary proposition to send our kids into a world that at times is full of anger and selfishness. That’s why we’re so grateful for the many good people out

there who share in the responsibility of helping our kids grow into good, honorable adults and care enough Print to help & build Mail the type ServiceS

of character that will

make them good citizens and strong community members.”
