JUNE YARD OF THE

MONTH WINNERS

727 Long Prairie Drive

Our annual Yard of the Month Contest will continue through September.

The Cimarron Community Improvement Association, Inc. Yard of the

Month Committee will choose (3) homes and reward them for their

exemplary lawn care. The winners of the Yard of the Month will be

provided with a decorative yard sign for display indicating their winning

yard along with a $25 Lowe’s gift card. In order to qualify, residents must

be current on their Association Dues for the year. Please note, the sign

will be picked up at the end of the month by the Yard of the Month

Committee. We encourage all homeowners to take pride in their homes

and our neighborhood this year!

KEEP OUR STORM DRAINS CLEAN!

It is a violation to blow or sweep grass clippings,

leaves and other yard waste into our storm drains.

This includes “sweeping” grass and leaves into the

street with leaf blowers as they eventually wash down

the drain. Why is this a problem? Yard waste can block

the flow of water and lead to flooding. Decomposing

grass and leaves deplete the oxygen in the water,

which can stress fish and other aquatic life.

Never place or allow anything to go down the storm

drain. This includes cigarette butts, trash and even

newspapers. Intentionally pouring paint, motor oil,

antifreeze, pesticides, fertilizers, pet waste, litter, etc.

into the street gutters or storm drains can affect the

water quality of waterways and lakes, is dangerous to

the environment and is ILLEGAL.

2020 ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS

The 2020 annual assessments were due on January 1, 2020 and

considered late after January 31, 2020. Your assessments are what allow

your Board of Directors to maintain your community. The assessments

cover the cost of the maintenance of the common areas, as well, as

other operational costs of the Association (utilities, insurance, pool,

clubhouse and entrance maintenance, management and recreational

activities). Please contact Hailey McAnally in our accounting department

at MASC Austin Properties, Inc. via phone at 713-776-1771 or via email

hmcanally@mascapi.com to make payment arrangements if you haven’t

paid your 2020 assessment yet.

We are now accepting credit card payments! Go to our website at www.

cimarroncia.com and click the link MAKE A PAYMENT. (Note: There is a

nominal fee to use this service).

ACC APPROVAL FOR HOME IMPROVEMENT

If you are planning any home improvements, keep in mind that all exterior

modification to your property, with the exceptions of basic landscaping,

must be submitted to the architectural control committee. No work may

be started until the ACC committee has approved your request. This

includes painting and roof replacement, even if you’re using the existing

colors. Cimarron requires that all homeowners receive ACC approval in

order to maintain the beauty and design of our neighborhood. The rules

and regulations as established in the deed restrictions help ensure an

attractive appearance throughout our community. You can locate the

Home Improvement Request Form on our community website: www.

mascapi.com under MY NEIGHBORHOOD - CIMARRON CIA.

If you have any questions, please call MASC Austin Properties, Inc., at

CATS RUNNING LOOSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

We are having problems with cats loose in the neighborhood. Loose cats

can be a nuisance to your neighbors and their pets/property. Children

can be scratched by unfamiliar cats, sleep can be disturbed by two loose

cats howling in fights, gardens can be torn up by cats using them as litter

boxes. There are also many dangers for your cats running loose - other

people’s pets, wild animals, disease, cars.

ANIMAL / PET CONTROL

Please respect your neighbor’s yard and their personal space. Remember,

that pets must be confined to a fenced backyard or within the house and

must not allowed to bark all night long or cause a nuisance to neighbors.

They must be on a leash at all times when away from this contained

environment. It is also the pet owner’s responsibility, when walking their

pet within the subdivision, to keep ALL areas free of pet debris. Please

remember that cats must also be confined. Animal control will pick up

strays and/or unconfined pets.

CIMARRON BICYCLE CLUB

Interested in joining a Cimarron bicycle club? Weekly rides through the

neighborhood at a casual pace. All ages welcome. Call Robert at 281-392-

6105.

ATTENTION!

Please be careful and slow down while driving through the subdivision;

remind your young drivers to do also. Please, be aware of your

surroundings and parents, remind your children to watch for vehicles

when crossing the street.

PARKED CARS

Please park your vehicles in your garage or at least in your driveway,

if at all possible. Please be considerate of your neighbors and the fire

trucks on your street. If you must park on the street, be considerate of

the neighbor across the street, who must back from a driveway in order

to enter the street. As our area has grown, so has the number of vehicles

in the subdivision. Most seem to have more than one car per family and

some have even more, as the children become driving age. Please try to

be considerate of others who try to navigate between the cars that are

left on the street. Children darting into the street or riding bicycles are

more easily seen with less parked cars blocking the view of them. Thank

you for your cooperation.

25 CAMPGROUNDS WITHIN/AROUND

2 HOURS OF HOUSTON TX

It’s summertime and that means it’s time to get out the camping gear, fishing

poles and sun screen! There’s no better way to relax than to sit outside of the

tent you just set up and breathe in.

SAM HOUSTON NATIONAL PARK: NEW WAVERLY, TX

This gorgeous national park offers tent pads, picnic tables, parking spurs

for trailers, lantern posts, grills, potable water, and toilets. Hiking is very

popular in the spring when the climate is milder. Water activities get

going in the summer on Double Lake with canoes and paddleboats that

can be rented from the park. Deer is the most popular game animal in the

Sam Houston National Forest, with squirrels second. Quail and dove are

found around newly regenerated timberland. For the water sportsman,

fishing and duck hunting can be enjoyed on area lakes and streams.

BRAZOS BEND: NEEDVILLE, TX

This park has got plenty of options for activities during your stay. Lots

of trails, some of which are even wheelchair friendly, wind through the

woods and bring you to the water’s edge of the lake. Just make sure you’ve

brushed up on your alligator safety because they’re not uncommon in

certain areas of the park. Aside from walking or biking the trails, there’s

also the option of horseback riding on one of the multiuse trails.

LAKE CONROE KOA: MONTGOMERY, TX

Here’s a KOA that’s got your back this weekend if you’re trying to relax

to the max. Bring your RV here, up to 80’ and enjoy the cable tv, wifi,

hookups and pools to lounge in all day. If you haven’t got an RV, don’t

feel left out! You can stay in one of the 35 cabins that have bathrooms and

a full kitchen. Tent campers are welcome as well. Visitors can explore the

area and find the nearby golf course, restaurants and the lake has plenty

of recreational activities.

GALVESTON ISLAND STATE PARK: GALVESTON, TX

This park is a freaking island, so as far as camping goes you really can’t

go wrong with this option. There is hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching

and lots more. One of the many things that make this island campground

unique is the paddle trails they boast. Though, if you decide to go on these,

you’ll need to bring your own canoe or kayak because they don’t rent them

out. Outside the campground, there is an educational theme park called

Moody Gardens. Bring the kids along and there’ll be plenty of nature for

people of various interests to enjoy and participate in during the stay.

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE PARK: SAN FELIPE, TX

This lovely State Park has six miles of hiking trails that are open to bikers

as well. Campsites have full hookups and some sites even hold up to 60

people. Stephen F. Austin State Park also holds events for youth over the

summer. Nearby attractions include but are not limited to: a neighboring

golf course, a beautiful riverbank to fish from and the San Felipe de

Austin State

HUNTSVILLE STATE PARK: HUNTSVILLE, TX

Here’s a State Park full of relaxation. You can go and unwind in the shade

of the trees and go fishing from one of the fishing piers or off your boat

or canoe. There are watercraft for rent including paddleboats, canoes and

kayaks. There’s even a bird blind to enjoy watching the local feathered

friends who flit about the forest.

SEA RIM STATE PARK: SABINE PASS, TX

This park has 4,000 acres of marsh and a boardwalk going through so you

can enjoy without getting your feet wet. Campers, cabin-dwellers and

RV-goers all have a place here at Sea Rim State Park. Feel free to fish from

the boardwalk or explore with your rented or own canoe or kayak. Sea

Rim also has the option to explore its grounds from home via their virtual

tour of the trails map.

NORTHLAKE RV RESORT: HOUSTON, TX

Come to Northlake RV Resort if you’re looking for a nice and relaxing place

to kick your feet up and breathe deeply. This resort has got a massive list of

amenities so it’s ridiculous to try to write them all here, but if you’re interested

you should definitely check out their website. Some of the best aspects of

this resort are the park-wide wifi, the stocked fishing lakes and the fire pits.

This place allows for extended stays and weekend trips, so regardless of your

plans you’ll definitely have plenty of options right next to home!

TRADERS VILLAGE RV RESORT:

Traders Village is a short drive for you and a wonderful place to stay. The

electric and water hookups are free, there is a pool for swimming, and

there’s wifi. Bring your picnic supplies so you can eat outside at the picnic

tables while enjoying the weather. You’re welcome to lounge around

and enjoy relaxing or you can go next door to the flea market that hosts

events and activities for visitors.

ALLSTAR RV RESORT: HOUSTON, TX

At AllStar RV Resort, they’ve got anything you could need while camping

in your RV and more. If you’ve got yourself a Fido who wanders himself

into a smelly situation, there’s a dog washing station here for your (and

your nose’s) convenience. Take advantage of the swimming pool, the

computer room, the recreation room and more. There’s also a stadium

nearby for baseball fans to watch their games.

ESCAPE THE PAVEMENT: HOUSTON, TX

There are actually two camping sites associated with Escape the Pavement

near Houston. There are four aspects to Escape the Pavement: Heyne

Ranch, Lake Houston Wilderness Park, Blackwood Land Institute and Big

Thicket National Preserve. It’s actually super great, because no matter

your flavor preference of outdoors experience, this place has got you. One

is a ranch for you and your horse to enjoy pastures, rivers and wooded

trails; perfect for a day trip. You’ll also love the bonfires on the beach! One

of their campgrounds has over 4,000 acres of forest and a creek that you

can go ahead and explore the trails winding around through it on your

horse, bike or on foot. The other area available for camping is restricted to

primitive camping only because it is located on a preserve. Lastly, the land

institute is a great educational place for kids and adults alike. Check out

their website if any of these interest you and start planning a trip!

LAKE SOMERVILLE: SOMERVILLE, TX

The campground and park are also full of opportunities for fun in the sun.

Water activities like swimming, skiing, fishing, and the likes are all great

ideas on Lake Somerville. There are picnic areas for campers or day hikers

to sit, enjoy the view, and munch on their sandwiches. Birdwatching,

volleyball, hiking and horseback riding are popular pass times. Overall,

this is a wonderful place to relax and play in the great outdoors.

SHELDON LAKE STATE PARK: HOUSTON, TX

Sheldon Lake State Park is open to fishing and wildlife observation. You’re

welcome to take your boat out for a ride or fish off the banks, so long as

you’re wary of the alligators inhabiting the park. The learning center has

tons of activities for the kids that you can sign up for and enjoy. Some

of these activities are more hands-on, like catch and release fishing

and some are visual demonstrations like green building technologies

or smart wildscape demonstrations for gardening and using beautiful

native plants.

BASTROP STATE PARK: BASTROP, TX

A forest with a history and personality, the Lost Pines located on Bastrop

State Park used to be a luscious and well-groomed forest before being

damaged by floods and fires. Now, the forest’s recovery is just as beautiful

a sight. The story itself is a perfect reason to visit, but Bastrop also has

swimming, biking, hiking and geocaching as an incentive. If you’re

looking to exploring the surrounding area, Bastrop also has museums

and restaurants to check out on your vacation!

BUESCHER STATE PARK: SMITHVILLE, TX

Experienced bicyclists looking for a challenge will enjoy the bike trails

here at Buescher State Park. This park connects with Bastrop State Park via

a paved road with great views of the area. Unfortunately, there is currently

no swimming in this park, but if you adventure the short commute to the

nearby Bastrop you’ll find a nice swimming pool for visitors like yourself.

Lastly, if you’re hankering to float along in a tandem kayak or a canoe, you

can do so through rental at Buescher State Park.

LOCKHART STATE PARK: SMITHVILLE, TX

This park has a pool, grounds for camping, trails to hike and a nine-hole

golf course among many other things that allow you to get active! If you

want to go fishing but don’t want to lug around your equipment, you’re

in luck! The park has fishing equipment available for guests to use during

their stay. If you’re looking to have a gathering of people for a family or

church event, there is a Group Recreation Hall that also has a kitchen

capable of holding up to 75 people at once.

LAKE LIVINGSTON: LIVINGSTON, TX

If you’re looking for a beautiful place to host a family reunion, try looking

here! Campsites have full hookups and there are rentable screen shelters

as well. As long as you’re wary of the alligators that dwell in the area,

visitors can enjoy camping, hiking, birding, swimming, and biking. On

your way in and out you can stop at the souvenir shop that sells treats

and equipment!

LAKE LIVINGSTON KOA: ONALASKA, KOA

Here’s a popular KOA that you’ll probably need to make a reservation for

ahead of time to ensure you get yourself a spot for the night. There is

a beautiful pool with lounge chairs for you to relax and sink into while

soaking in the sun. Your kids will enjoy the playground. If you love

enjoying the great outdoors and its many inhabitants, there is a local bald

eagle named Eddie who supposedly flies around the area frequently.

There is also fishing, a pavilion to admire the scenery in, and is known for

the sunset views.

VILLAGE CREEK STATE PARK: LUMBERTON, TX

Campers interested in sleeping in tents, RVs or cabins are welcome here.

You’ll be able to go swimming, fishing, biking, hiking and more with your

friends and family. If you prefer to learn about your surroundings and its

history rather than being emerged in the real deal, there are programs

and museums aplenty for you to observe and glean information from

during your stay.

PALMETTO STATE PARK: GONZALES, TX

This little oasis has a multitude of thirsty plants that cannot live in other

areas due to the lack of water. The park is named for the dwarf palmettos

that grow beneath the trees. As a visitor, you can also enjoy the copious

amounts of flowing and stagnant water by swimming, tubing, fishing

and canoeing. Those interested in keeping dry will enjoy bird watching,

hiking, geocaching or staring at the dwarf palmettos.

VICTORIA COLETO CREEK LAKE KOA: VICTORIA, TX

Come to this RV and tent camping site to enjoy the lovely wildflowers,

scattered oaks, birds and other wildlife. There is a pond with catfish that you

can relax on the edge of while fishing and other areas for freshwater fishing.

The winters are not as frigid as up north, so you can always count on decent

weather should you decide to vacation here! There are plenty of places in the

area for you to check out, making it perfect for both short or extended stays.

WALKS/RUNS

ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION INVITES KATY/WEST HOUSTON

RESIDENTS TO JOIN 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®​

Participants will Raise Critically Needed Awareness and Funds for

Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. ​The Alzheimer’s Association®​

is inviting​Katy, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston

area ​residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in the

Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.​ ​The Walk will take place

on Saturday, September 26, 2020,​​at​ ​La Centerra Shopping Center in Katy,

Texas. On walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s

disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden

Ceremony - a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons

participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s. This year’s challenge is

whether we will be able to come together of 1,300 walkers or not. So

we have two plans - Plan A is to have the big event. Plan B is to have

a virtual event that may be held in various neighborhoods, businesses,

schools and other smaller communities where people can come together

and Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In addition to the 3-mile walk, participants

will enjoy a fun-filled experience that includes valuable information,

celebrations, entertainment, corporate sponsors and so much more.

Participants can join a team or register to walk as an individual at ​www.

alz.org/walk​. Even though the office has been closed, the Alzheimer’s

Association has continued to offer support through various avenues than

before the stay-at-home order. The 24/7 Free Hotline can be a lifeline for

those who suffer from the disease and those who care for them, call

800-272-3900. Support Groups are meeting virtually, please check www.

alz.org for times and locations. Facebook Live sessions are held every

Wednesday at 11 AM. Find the live sessions and lots of other programs

and events on the Facebook page, “Alzheimer’s Association: Houston &

Southeast Texas Chapter.” Virtual classes are offered to cover many issues

each week. To join one of the virtual programs, please visit www.alz.org/
