COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION MEETINGS

Join us on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Pool Room

on West Road to learn about what is happening in our community. You

are encouraged to come.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS

• Recognition of Yard of the Month has ended for 2019 and will begin

again next spring.

• Repairs and replacement of the wrought iron fence at the lake continues.

• Trees at the entrances and park are being trimmed.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN REVIEW

As promised, we will now be including parts of the Architectural Design

Review in the Monthly Newsletter to keep our residents more aware of

them. Following are the rules for Submission of an Application.

Submission of the Application: All applications for approval to make any

exterior changes, additions or improvements must be submitted to the

Committee in writing by completing the application form currently in

use by the Committee. Plans and specifications for any exterior change,

addition or improvement should be attached to the application. The

application should be supported by the following information:

A. drawing(s) of the proposed structure showing the top, front, side and

rear exterior views and overall dimensions (length, width, height) of the

structure;

B. a copy of an official survey of the Lot showing location of easements,

existing buildings and structures and the proposed location of the

improvement;

C. a description of all exterior materials used, including product name,

model number, size, color, etc. of color samples (e.g. “paint chips”) for all

colors involved must be included and

D. two (2) copies of the application.

For additional detail concerning the Application Procedures and

General Guidelines, please visit www.townsquare.nabrnetwork.com.

An application for Requesting Home Improvement Approval can also be

found there.

RESIDENTS:

It has come to our attention that many residents are leaving their

grass clippings and shrub clippings out on the curb for days before the

assigned trash pickup. Our trash days are on Monday and Thursday.

Either change your scheduled yard mowing to coordinate with the trash

days OR remove the grass and tree trimmings to the back of your fence

or in your garage until the evening before trash pick-ups. It is a deed

violation to leave your grass clippings or tree branches out days early.

DON’T SWEEP OR BLOW GRASS CLIPPINGS INTO THE STREET GUTTERS.

It clogs our drainage system.

HOWDY NEIGHBOR! IMPORTANT NOTE:

Thank you to those who have cleaned your bronze street number plate

on your home exterior. PLEASE make sure your house number is visible

be critical in time lost.

HOA DUES ARE NOW PAST DUE

arrangements to do so. They are now accruing additional fees.

We have an aging neighborhood with a lot of community space, which

annoying to neighbors. (i.e. shining in neighbors windows; lights on all

Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely: Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Put

electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.

Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as

far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest

street crossings. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to

never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Trick or Treat with an Adult: Children under the age of 12 should not be alone

at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without

supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat

in groups.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe: Decorate costumes and bags with

reflective tape or stickers and if possible, choose light colors. Choose face paint

and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s

vision. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by

drivers. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips

and falls.

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween: Slow down and be especially alert in residential

neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable

ways. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.

Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. Eliminate any distractions

inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. Drive

slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the

day to spot children from greater distances. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30

PM to 9:30 PM so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

Last-Minute Costume Ideas

Look what you can make with garbage bags, balloons and a few crafty

additions:

Dress your youngster as Robin Hood with a green plastic garbage bag

belted in the middle, tights and a V-shaped hat made of brown paper.

Staple real or construction-paper leaves to pajamas, tights, an old shirt

or another garbage bag, so Robin’s companion(s) can come as Sherwood

Forest.

Alternatively, use the leaves and attach red, yellow or orange balloons to

the costume. Presto: you’re an apple, lemon or orange tree. (Leaves can

be stuck to a headband as an extra touch.)

Blow up a multicolored group of balloons. Dress child in black turtleneck

and tights, then make leg holes in a clear plastic dry-cleaner’s bag. Slip

legs through, then fill the bag with balloons. (Bag should reach from

shoulders to thighs). Seal top and reinforce sides and bottom “seams”

with clear wrapping tape. Your child is now a bag of jellybeans.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA -

COPPERHEAD DISTRICT

For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found

in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant

in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting

helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership

skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities

that allow them to: Try new things. • Provide service to others. • Build selfconfidence.

• Reinforce ethical standards. Scouting provides youth with

a sense that they are important as individuals while promoting activities

that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result,

when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and

the right choices can be made. Scouting provides a rewarding experience

for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting through the local Packs and Troops teach

outdoor and life skills which help our youth Be Prepared. Your area is

serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area Counsel - Copperhead District

which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5 to 10 years old), 13 Troops

(boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing units (boys and girls from

14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.

Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools

including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,

Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,

Tipps, Walker and Wilson.

Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,

Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,

Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield

Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village

HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic

Church and Thornton Middle School. Please contact Brendan Cronin,

Gardening Tips For October

• Dig and store caladiums before the foliage dies. Allow the bulbs to dry

in the shade, shake off the dried soil and dust with sulphur to control

fungus. Store by hanging in open mesh bags or old panty hose.

• Flowers planted for spring can begin when the temperatures are going

to stay cooler. Shrubs and trees can be planted now. Woody plants

concentrate on root growth through the winter and the more headstart

they can get before summer, the better.

October 15th is about the time for dividing and planting daylilies.

• Watch out for brown patch in St. Augustine grass. These circular brown

patches are caused by a fungus that is activated by moist cool weather.

Control with Daconil.

• If you need to do any pruning, do it early in the month. The re-growth

stimulated by pruning needs to harden off before that odd-ball frost of

Halloween. Prune fruit trees when leaves begin to fall. Remove all dead,

weak and over-crowded growth. Tip back main branches to control size

and shape. Spray w/dormant oil when temperature is between 30-60

degrees.

• Cut back tops of perennials after they have bloomed. Divide roots and

transplant anytime from now until March, the earlier the better.

• Get the ant baits down. This will greatly reduce your spring populations.

• Clover left over from last year may be growing. It’s best to hit it with

the post-emerge herbicides in October and November. At least two

applications are usually needed, even if done this early.

• For color throughout the winter, begin planting pansies.
