Together as a community we must always be alert for both ourselves
and our neighbors. Please phone (713-221-6000) the sheriff for anything
suspicious; robbery, suspicious looking people, speeding, etc.
Please remember not to place your garbage out any sooner than the
night before the scheduled pick-up day. After pick-up, all garbage cans
should be kept out of public view. They should not be kept in front of
garages, in the front yards of any home or on the side of any home. Please
make every effort to conceal the trashcans from public view on non-trash
On a side note we should be putting all trash in bags and not directly in
bins as this creates a problem for everyone. Governors Place is our home
and we like to keep it nice. If you spot trash in the area, please pick it up
and to ensure our beautiful community stays as such.
Parking recreational vehicles in the community is a violation of the
governing rules and regulations. We understand this is the time of year
vacations and family visits are planned, so if you will take a moment to call

your recreational vehicle(s) in the driveway, we will give you 1 to 2 days
grace period. We understand people have to live, that is why we want to
open the lines of communication. If we do not hear from you and your
vehicle(s) are noticed on our regular inspection, don’t get upset when
you receive a citation. Again, we will only allow parking of recreational
vehicles for a short period of 1 to 2 days.
COMMERCIAL VEHICLES PARKING
Although the streets in Governors Place are public, we are receiving
numerous complaints regarding parking of personal vehicles and
commercial vehicles in the streets. The parking of COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
within the community is RESTRICTED in the governing documents and
fines will be assessed. Please try to utilize your driveways as much as
possible when parking your personal vehicles.

STILL ON THE FENCE ABOUT HOSTING AN
You don’t have any kids? Are you a single parent? Same sex couple? An
empty nester? This is not a problem, we place our students in all kinds of
You’re not rich? Neither am I! Your exchange student comes with their
own spending money and health insurance. All you provide is room/
board and three meals a day. Oh and TLC…but that’s free. Live in the
middle of nowhere? Small town? Not a big deal. Some kids prefer to get
away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. The exchange students also
do pretty well in small schools, as they usually get to be the center of
attention and make friends rather quickly. Our students also get chances
to travel to New York, Washington DC, Hawaii and California…so they
can get their fill of the city life and return back to the peaceful sounds of
nature. Do you consider yourself a boring person? More than likely this
is not true and you should quit being so hard on yourself. Your student
will make friends. Your student will meet other exchange students. Your
student will attend activities offered by our program. Your student will
get involved in sports and school clubs. Your purpose is not to entertain
them. But you might find that you bring a little adventure to each others
lives. Kids are too young? Great! Lots of students love young kids and
your kids will love them. It’s beneficial to introduce your kids to new
cultures at a very young age. You’re preparing them to accept people no
matter what the religion, color of their skin or language they speak. That
my friend, is good parenting. Don’t hold back! This is a gret experience for
both parties. You get the opportunity to change a child’s life. You get the
satisfaction of seeing them grow, even after they leave your home into
becoming a doctor, a lawyer, a diplomat, artist, teacher…the list goes on.
And you contributed to that success! And the best part of it all, is you gain
another family member for life. We need people like you to give these
kids a chance.
STS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to place
exchange students in our area. If you are interest in hosting, please
contact me at 832-455-7881 or at email@example.com. I’ll be
happy to answer any question you might have and get you started on
hosting your very own student!
