BRADFORD COLONY 1 & 2
(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD
Our annual meeting is to be held on 11/6/19 at 7 PM at the Epiphany Lutheran
Church on 14423 West Road (corner of West Rd and Jack Rabbit). If you are
not able to come in person, please complete and sign the proxy which you
would have received in late October and either send it to our PMG manager
Maggie McKay via mail, email (with a scanned copy) or hand it to one of the
Board members. We do need either personal attendance or signed proxies to
meet quorum for meeting to happen.
TRASH CANS AFTER TRASH PICK-UP
We continue to see a lot of garbage cans left on curbside or front yard or side
of houses. Please know that this is a deed violation. All garbage cans need to
be put away from street view by evening of trash day. If you continue to leave
it on front yard, curbside etc. (street views) we will have to spent money to
send you violation citations and if the problem continues, then legal action
is to ensue. This is a rather simple action on all of us to enhance the overall
appearance and maintain our property values at the same time. We want to
thank those who always abide by this rule and try to do their best to make
this a pleasant neighborhood. And if you were not aware of this restrictions,
you understand now that you need to put your garbage cans away after each
pick-up away from street view. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.
HOME BUSINESS - DEED VIOLATION
It is in our deed document that restricts operating a home business.
According to our covenants Article VI USE Restrictions Section 1 RESIDENTIAL
USE: Each and every lot is hereby restricted to residential dwellings for
single family residential use ONLY. No Business, professional, commercial
or manufacturing use shall be made of any of said Lots, even though such
business, professional, commercial or manufacturing use be subordinate or
incident to use of the premises as a residence.” Section 3 NUISANCES: “No
noxious or offensive trade or activity shall be carried on upon any Lot nor
shall anything be done thereon which may be or become an annoyance to
residents of the subdivision.” And Section 5 - STORAGE, PARKING AND REPAIR
OF VEHICLES: “No boat, mobile home, trailer, …Inoperable automobiles shall
be parked in the street in front of or on side of any Lot or on any Lot…Vehicles
shall not be moved from place to place in the subdivision to avoid the intent of
this prohibition….” Such restrictions protect the neighborhood from excess
noises, nuisances or commercial traffics, cars blocking streets and neighbors’
driveways, frequent strangers come and go in the subdivision etc… They are
set up to preserves our properties values and living qualities of all residents
in the subdivision. If you do not permanently rectify the issues cited in the
deed violation citation, we will resort to legal actions if necessary. Of course
we would rather work with each of our neighbors instead, but stopping the
business for a few weeks and then resume it does not count as rectifying the
problem and if continues, will ensue legal actions toward the violations.
If you are registered in our official app TownSq, you can download a copy
of the deed restrictions in the app by going to the “Documents” tab then
Our monthly meetings is still at 7 PM 2 nd Wednesday. However, the M.U.D.
building is no longer available to us so we are looking into a suitable location
that is both convenient and would not cost us fees. The location for next few
meetings will be announced in TownSq so please stay tuned. We are trying
out a few different locations so please bear with us. The meeting is open to
all residents of Bradford Colony 1&2 and we appreciate those who have been
coming tour meeting and give us suggestions and comments.
BRADFORD COLONY SECTION 3
(BCS3) GARAGE SALES
At present, there are no plans to have a neighborhood wide garage sale for
BCS3 this year. But the Bylaws allow for individual residents to have up to
four garage sales per year.
If you are interested in having your own garage sale, please contact any Board
member to let them know you are planning to do this.
Thank you for your cooperation as to this issue.
(BCS3) CONTACT THE BOARD
As is the case with everything in our small neighborhood, every resident
should feel free to contact any Board member as to any issue or question
that you have about BCS3. Contact information for all the Board members is
located inside of this publication.
(CHC) NOTES FROM THE BOARD
Happy Veterans Day! Happy Thanksgiving!
We had a great attendance at the annual meeting and covered a lot of ground!
Neighbors, be kind to one another. There were several complaints about loud
music and parties. If this is YOU, please be cognizant of your neighbors. We
are still having issues with cars in the front of the park and cars parked close
to stop signs.
Yard of the Month: We have continued to do, “Yard of the Month.” However,
delivering the gift cards has been time consuming and a real challenge. If you
won yard of the month and have not received your gift card, please contact
Heather Palomo at 832-418-9020 to claim it. We haven’t heard from anyone.
Due to the lack of advertising within the colonies, Charlestown Colony had
to reduce the amount of articles published in the newsletter. Please see the
back of the Krenek Magazine for upcoming events.
Please Stop Parking in Front of the Charlestown Colony Park!
From Our Board: It is dangerous for our children to play in the park with cars
parked in front of it. Trailers are a deed restriction violation.
Parked Cars on Streets Close Stop Signs, Commercial Vehicles & Trailers:
• We are still seeing cars parked on the street close to stop signs which
becomes very dangerous for drivers to maneuver around oncoming traffic.
Please park cars safely on the streets to avoid accidents. We love our residents
and do not want to see anyone injured.
• There are several community parking areas around the park and patio homes
in the front of our subdivision. Please do not park there longer necessary.
Please be cognizant of our neighbors. If you haven’t seen tow signs already,
these will be posted soon. Cars parked in Charlestown Colony community
parking spots longer than necessary will be towed at the owner’s expense.
• It is a violation of our deed restrictions to park commercial vehicles, trailers,
etc. in public view for an excessive amount of time. The number of hours
these vehicles can be parked on the street is limited. Please refer to our deed
restrictions. Harris County will be conducting a traffic study in our area to
determine where street tow signs will be posted.
HOA Annual Assessments: If you have not paid the annual HOA dues by now,
it is delinquent!
NEW APPLICATION: HTTPS://APP.TOWNSQ.IO:
The management company is using a new application which is much more
robust than the previous online website. To register for the application, the
HOA account number and an email address is needed. Within the application,
HOA dues can be paid, messages can be sent to the management company,
other requests for home improvement projects etc. can also be done by click
(CC) HOA ASSESSMENTS
The HOA assessment statements will be sent out by mid-November. Please

You will also have access to your individual account information, the
Associations governing documents, ACC applications and more. You can send

for picking up the mess in a timely manner. Future incidents will be submitted

mess or from getting a DVR letter, please consider using a trash receptacle.

The winter is when you spend the least amount of time thinking of your
lawn. Unless you live in an area that is relatively warm all year long, chances
are you have put the lawn mower away and are ready for a few months of
relaxation before you have to start the lawn maintenance routine again. You
can find tips here: www.lawncare.org/winter-lawn-care-tips.

HELP HORNE ELEMENTARY!
An easy way to help our school is to turn trash into cash. Horne Elementary
participates in the Box Tops for Education program. Some of the grocery
items we use have Box Tops on them. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for the
school. You would pick up a dime on street - so cut out the Box Tops and
donate to Horne! You can find the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products
like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper® and Kleenex®, in almost every aisle of the
store. To donate the Box Tops, simply bring them to the reception desk at
Horne, give them to a family with children who attend Horne or contact this
year’s coordinator, Rufina Bonilla, for pick up. Her email address is rufinamb@
gmail.com and her cell phone number is 713-294-6940. Let’s collect them all
year long and give Horne a big boost to start the new school year!

BEAT THE HOLIDAY WEIGHT
Mashed potatoes, homemade apple pie, stuffing, hot dinner rolls with
melted butter, creamed corn, green bean casserole, salad with all the
fixins’ and of course the main dish - the BIRD. All of this equals at least
2,000+ calories. What is a holiday food enthusiast to do? Yes, you CAN
avoid the holiday weight gain! Here’s how: • Drink H2O before you eat:
chances are, you are thirsty before any and every meal; drink a full
glass of water to quench your thirst first, then notice you will feel fuller.
• Rainbow plate: make sure your plate has color - fresh/not creamed
items, broiled or grilled vegetables, protein, carbohydrate and again,
water. • On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes, casseroles,
stuffing, dressing, etc. are SIDES not main dishes; make sure to keep
these portions small. • NO to salad dressing: hooray there is a salad! BUT
- that tasty dressing (ranch, thousand island, French, Russian, balsamic
vinaigrette, etc.) will reverse the purpose of the ruffage; instead, make
your own dressing at home and bring it with you or simply ask for olive
oil, salt & pepper and maybe a hint of lemon. • Walk it off: finished eating?
Go for a WALK; football can wait (yes, even the college games), because
your body deserves better.
