Your Community is Fighting Back

We have already won the case, but...

you must file your claim to be eligible for compensation.

2

After Harvey, the Army Corps of Engineers refused to take responsibility for

intentionally using Upstream properties to store storm water. After a hard-fought

courtroom battle in 2019, Judge Lettow issued his decision. He found the

government liable under the Fifth Amendment for the intentional flooding of

Upstream homes and businesses. In a landmark case, Judge Lettow ruled that

intentional government action was the sole cause of the Upstream flooding.

Upstream residents have filed lawsuits to protect and enforce their Fifth

Amendment rights to just compensation. Attorney Armi Easterby is honored to

represent over 1,300 Upstream families and businesses.

The Chief Judge of the Court of

Federal Claims picked attorney Armi

Easterby to serve as Co-Lead Counsel

to protect the rights of individual

plaintiffs. Armi and his legal team

have taken the lead in obtaining

sworn testimonies from dozens of

government witnesses in

Washington, D.C., West Virginia, and

Texas. Pictures and videos from our

Upstream plaintiffs helped to prove

that the Army Corps’ actions were

the sole cause of flooding. Litigation

is still ongoing to determine financial

compensation and there is still time

to file a claim.

with no obligation.

You must file a claim to

receive compensation.

Info For All of the Colonies

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!

(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD

HOA ANNUAL MEETING

Our annual meeting is still scheduled to be held in early November when this

article is written (early Sept). Please look out for letter and proxy in the mail around

late October for details. Due to the pandemic, changes may occur and we will

always communicate updates in our TownSq app.

TRASH CANS AFTER TRASH PICK-UP

We continue to see a lot of garbage cans left on curbside or front yard 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 who live here in our subdivision. All deed restrictions are created to enhance

the overall appearance and maintain our property values at the same time. We want

to thank those who always abide by the rules and try to do their best to make this a

pleasant neighborhood. And if you were not aware of this particular restriction, you

now understand that you need to put your garbage cans away after each pick-up

away from street view. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.

If you would like a copy of the deed restrictions, you can find a copy of it under

Documents in our TownSq app. You will first need to sign up for an account in the

app using your PMG account number. If you do not know what it is, you can contact

our property manager Maggie McKay at her email: mmckay@pmghouston.com

and ask for it.

MONTH OF OCTOBER

October is Breast Cancer awareness month. October 5 th is the last day to register

to vote this November. October is a good time to talk to your family doctor to get

your flu shot. It is particularly important to get the flu shot this year due to the

pandemic. October 10 th is world mental health day, while we try to take care of our

body, let’s not forget about our mental health fitness and those who are suffering

from mental health issues.

LAWN CARE TIPS FOR THE FALL

Fall is a time when we may finally have some tolerable temperature and is more

pleasant for us to spend some time outside taking care of our lawns and yards.

Here are some tips we can all use:

• Trim shrubs and hedges to maintain their shapes and appearances.

• Lawn mower blades may be lowered to 3” unless we have very hot days again

like we had in August.

• Check on your fall vegetable garden if you had started one earlier.

• Decorate your yard with fall colors and/or pumpkins.

• Garden Mums of wide array of colors will be in season throughout fall.

MONTHLY MEETING

Our October monthly meeting is scheduled to be held on 10/13/20 at 7 PM. At

time when this article is written the meeting is still expected to be a conference

call instead of face-to-face meeting. Meeting information can always be found in

our TownSq app.

CHARLESTOWN COLONY

(CHC) NOTES FROM THE BOARD

Happy Halloween!

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.

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.

Trash Pick-Up:

Mondays - Heavy Trash and Recycling

Thursdays - Normal Trash Pick-up

Please do not put the trash out until the night before trash pick-up. If trash is left

out, it is exposed to rodents.

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.

2020 HOA Annual Assessments:

If you have not paid the annual HOA dues by now, it is delinquent!

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 or swipe.

Annual Dues Payment: Thank you to all who have paid your HOA dues!

Since the Board has not increased the HOA dues for 2020, there should

be no excuse for paying delinquent! February 1 st , unpaid annual dues are

considered delinquent and subject to late fees and penalties. Our management

company has new policies and procedures in place to collect on past due HOA

assessments. If these have not been paid yet, please make every effort to pay

fees and interest are still applied. If you would like to arrange for a payment plan,

please contact Shannon Abernathy, our management company representative, at

act on your request. PMGHouston will notify the homeowner on the outcome of

the request. The approved colors are Sherwin Williams colors and color numbers.

To view the actual colors:

1. Google Sherwin Williams Paint Colors.

2. Scroll down to Paint Colors - Sherwin Williams.

3. In that list, Select Sherwin Williams Paint Colors.

4. The Digital Color Wall screen appears with a grid of all the colors available.

5. The first box on the left, above the color grid, is SEARCH COLOR.

6. Select that.

7. Another screen appears with a box that says Search by color name or number.

8. Put in the color you want. A selection of all the colors with that name will appear.

CYPRESS FALLS BAND FUNDRAISER

The Cypress Falls Golden Eagle Marching Band lined our neighborhood with

nearly 700 US flags recently through their Flags with Pride fundraiser. For

an annual fee of $40, band volunteers will deliver a 3’x5’ flag on a 10’ pole

and place it in front of your home on six patriotic holidays throughout the

year: Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriots

Day (9/11) and Veterans Day. The band is now taking orders for 2021 flag

service and is running a special promotion: new customers that sign up by

November 5 th will get a flag for Veterans Day 2020 included for free! Homes

must be in the Cypress Falls High School attendance

zone. Visit https://www.cypressfallsband.org/flagswith-pride/

for more information and to order online

or download a mail-in form to pay by check/money

order. This fundraiser helps the band pay for supplies,

performances and competitions. Many other band

HOUSTON OPEN BIRDIES FOR CHARITY®

What is Birdies for Charity®? Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program

designed to give local charities the opportunity to generate contributions

through the Houston Open. 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity

of your choice. The Houston Open will also award the top three donationcollecting

charities and one randomly drawn charity with an additional

bonus. In 2019, the Houston Open distributed $615,000 to local nonprofits.

How can I participate in Birdies for Charity®? There are two ways to donate

to the Birdies for Charity program:

1. Make a pledge of one cent or more for every “Birdie” made by the PGA

Tour Pros during the Houston Open. If 1,500 birdies are made during the

2020 event, here are the totals for some typical pledge amounts:

• 1 cent pledge = $15 total pledge

• 3 cent pledge = $45 total pledge

• 10 cent pledge = $150 total pledge

• $1 pledge = $1,500 total pledge

The minimum birdie pledge is $.01 and the maximum pledge is $1. The

last day to submit a pledge is Sunday, November 8, 2020. Last year, 1,244

birdies were made at the Houston Open. FYI we are playing at a new

course this year.

2. Make a flat donation not tied to birdies. For flat donations, the minimum is

$20. To donate, please visit our Charity page at www.houstonopengolf.com.

Grand Prize: You are eligible to enter our “Guess the Birdie” contest when you

donate or make a pledge to one of our local charities. Guess the total number

of birdies that will be made by PGA Tour Pros during the Houston Open,

Nov. 2-8, 2020. One grand prize will be given to the person who guesses

the correct number. In case of ties, winners will be randomly selected. One

lucky supporter of the Houston Open Birdies for Charity® program will win

an Astros *Suite Night at Minute Maid Park. *Suite night 2021 date will

be determined by the Astros organization and sent to the winner once

determined. For more information about the Houston Open Birdies for

Charity® program, please contact Monica Whitt at info@astrosgolf.com.
