GRAFFITI

FROM BOARD MEMBERS OF WCID #145

Graffiti is a problem in our neighborhoods. Just in the first 3 1/2 months

of 2020, over $5,500 has been spent removing and/or applying a surface

that makes removal easier. It has appeared under bridges, on retainer

walls and on the trails themselves. Some are symbols, some are offensive.

According, to state law regarding vandalism and intentionally painting

on property:

Class “C” - misdemeanor if the pecuniary loss is less than $100.

Class “B” - $100 or more but less than $750.

Class “A” - $750 or more but less that $2,500.

Anything above this amount is considered a felony. The graffiti removed

from the trails in early April fell into the Class “A” category. The police

are notified and/or a police report is filed with each incident. Please

remind everyone, if caught, there will be ramifications and fines. Your

tax dollars could be put to better use than rectifying the willful acts of a

few individuals. The trails throughout Copperfield are for the enjoyment

of all. Everyone should be able to utilize them without encountering

offensive material. Each year the traffic on the trails increases. We would

like it to be a pleasant experience. Thank you.

CCA HOLIDAY SHOPPING SAFETY TIPS

By Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Community Services Divisions

Prevent Identity Theft

• Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise such as onetime

or multiuse disposable credit cards, for online stores and auction sites.

• Wait until asked before pulling out your credit card or checkbook.

An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get your account

information.

• Keep personal information and passwords secure. Do not respond

requests to “verify’ your information unless you initiated the contract.

Legitimate businesses will not contact you in this manner.

• Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the icon of a locked padlock

at the bottom of the screen or “https” in the URL address.

• Shop with companies you know and trust. Check for background

information if you plan to buy from a new or unfamiliar company.

• Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar-if it

sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

• Save receipts and print confirmations for online purchases. Check bank and

credit card statements for purchases and possible fraudulent purchases.

Shopping With Children

• If you are shopping with small children have a plan in case you are

separated from each other.

• Have a central meeting place.

• Ensure that children know your cell phone number. Give cards with

contract information to any children who do not.

• Go over Stranger Danger with your children, so that they know who not

to talk to or follow.

Shopping In Stores

• Do not buy more than you can carry. Ask for assistance, if needed, to

help you carry your purchases out to your car.

• Do not leave packages visible in your car window. Lock them in the truck

or if possible, take them home.

• Have your keys in your hand when approaching your vehicle. Check

back seat and around your car before getting in it.

• Deter pickpockets. Carry your purse close to your body or wallet inside

a coat or front pant pocket.

• Tell security if you see an unattended packages.

• Double check for your credit card or checkbook after you make a

purchase.

EMERGENCY VEHICLES

AND FIRE TRUCK CLEARANCE

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department is still requesting homeowners

assist in addressing the low hanging trees within the Copperfield

Community. Low hanging limbs and branches are causing damage to

the fire departments equipment and damage to the homeowners’ trees,

hampering the response to emergency calls. Most of the fire departments

equipment is 13 feet tall and therefore need a 14 foot clearance from

trees that hang over the streets. Routes to locations have to be altered

to avoid these areas and some areas have no alternate route; leaving no

recourse but to park and walk to the locations.

SEE STRAYS IN YOUR STREET?

Do adult cats traipse through your landscape? Have you discovered

newborn kittens in your yard?

If you choose to care for these cats, keep in mind your responsibility. As

custodian of the cats, you must keep the cats licensed, vaccinated and

restrained.

BEST HOUSTON PLAYGROUNDS

AND PARKS FOR TODDLERS

Visiting the park with a toddler can be both a blessing and a curse. While

a trip to a playground may be great for helping toddlers burn off some

of their endless energy, playground sets can pose dangers to fearless

toddlers. That’s why parents of toddlers absolutely love finding a park

with the holy grail of little kid park features: a toddler-sized play set,

swings with leg holes and backs, soft ground for new walkers, etc... There

are many great parks in Houston, but the list below features parks with

plenty of options for parents who want to take their kids to the park and

know that their toddlers and preschoolers can enjoy park equipment

meant just for them.

DONOVAN PARK - THE HEIGHTS

700 Heights Boulevard, Houston

This gorgeous park in the heights features all wooden playground

equipment, including one set that is perfectly sized for toddlers to enjoy.

The toddler set includes the same features as the big kids’ set, just in a

miniature

EXPLORATION PARK-KATY

15020 Cinco Park Road

One of Houston’s great destination parks, Exploration Park features

an area with moveable blue foam blocks that toddlers can use to play

and build. This park also features a variety of different types of swings,

including some that even allow parents to swing with their toddlers.

COPPERFIELD PLACE VILLAGE

(CPV) A WORD FROM THE BOARD

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and

friends! The Christmas season is here and we have the opportunity once

more to celebrate with family and friends!! We hope the season brings

hope, unity, peace and joy to all our family and friends.

Remember to stay focused why we celebrate this day. It is a season

of giving to those that are not as fortunate as we are. There are many

unfortunate people in our city and communities who need food

and shelter; therefore, keep them in your prayers and give to those

organizations who open their hearts and facilities to the less fortunate.

Remember the season is about giving, sharing and love.

OTHER ISSUES AND NEWS

TRASH SERVICE: Trash service will not pick up on Christmas Day, Friday

12-25 until Monday 28 th since it falls on a national holiday. The same

applies to New Years day 01-01-21. Make sure you have paid your

trash fees with WCA or your trash will not be picked up. WCA garbage

collection information phone number for any questions is 281-766-1914.

ASSESSMENTS: As you know, our yearly assessments are due by January

1 st and delinquent after February 1 st . SCS mailed out your statement in

November. If you did not receive it, you can obtain it from the portal

website and pay it on line. Again, contact SCS if you have any questions

regarding this matter. We know Covid 19 has burdened many of our

homeowners; however, assessments must be paid or arrangements for

payment made.

Another method of payment is to contact your Mortgage Company

to see if they can include your assessment fee through your mortgage

monthly payment.

The Board has again voted to not raise our assessments for the new

coming year. We have not had an increase since 2017. Keep in mind that

all services keep going up every year, but we have had a great collection

percentage from our homeowners that we have sustained our yearly

budget.

Our budget goes to pay all of the following and more: Legal expenses,

Miscellaneous (unforeseen repairs, postage, Registered Letters etc.),

Pool and Parks Maintenance, Electricity, Irrigation , Water and sewage,

Telephone, Trash Services, Lights in Walkways, Tree Maintenance,

Landscaping, Annual Assessment to CCA (includes Patrol Division,

monuments and landscaping, parameter fencing and much more) . ,

Annual Management Co., Mosquito Control

You can go into the portal and see the disbursement of our budget and

our expenses.

POOL AND PARKS: Due to the continuing concern and safety of the matter

at hand with the COVID 19, the Board has decided that the PARK and

PLAYGROUND will remain CLOSED until further notice! You can still walk on

the sidewalks and the esplanades. We will continue supplying doggie bags

for you to walk your pets. Again we must remind everyone that cameras will

pick up any illegal activity at all times in the pool/park area.

POOL TRESPASSING: Jumping over the fence when the pool is closed is

trespassing and illegal. IF YOU ARE IN THE POOL WHEN CLOSED WE WILL

CONSIDER YOU TO BE TRESPASSING AND THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. WILL BE

CONTACTED! CAMERAS ARE ACTIVATED 24/7.

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS CALL AND REPORT IT! Program your

phone for the non-emergency phone number to the Sheriff’s department

(713-221-6000 #6) or crimes in progress dial 911. You do not have to give

out your name.

PARK AND PLAYGROUND: Report any loitering or suspicious activity

you see. No one should be in the park after hours or in the early hours of

the morning.

ILLEGAL PARKING: No parking in the Pool/Park area is allowed after

9 PM. We will begin towing any vehicle seen after hours at the owners’

expense. It does not matter if you are a homeowner or a guest visiting

the homeowner. It is illegal and considered trespassing. If you notice a

suspicious car or cars parked after hours, contact the non emergency

sheriff department so a deputy can be dispatched.

If you suspect illegal activity, trespassing, suspicious activity or illegal

parking after hours call the police right away at 713-221-6000 prompt

6. You do not have to give out your name only the pool/parks address,

which is 7410 Field Ridge.

GREENBELT AND PARK AREA TRASH! Did you know that there are trash

bins in these areas for your convenience? Please be considerate and

help keep these areas free from trash. Trash and doggie litter bins are

being emptied now by our yard maintenance every two weeks instead of

weekly until the Spring . Mowing is also done every other week, so please

try to keep the walking trails picked up of litter.

DOG LEASH LAW: We are still receiving many complaints that dogs are

running loose in the neighborhood. If this is the case, call animal control!

If you are walking your dogs, keep them on a leash at ALL times. This is a

deed restriction and also against Harris County Leash Law. Be considerate

of others. Many children are afraid of animals and also people in the

neighborhood do not appreciate dogs running around loose in their

yards using it for doggie stations. Use the green belt area.

DEED RESTRICTIONS VIOLATIONS

SCS follows a strict process of notification letters over a period of time

and after all attempts fail to have the homeowner correct the violation(s)

legal action may follow.

REMEMBER it is AGAINST our deed restrictions to have COMMERCIAL

VEHICLES OR VANS, TRAILERS, BOATS or JET SKIS in the street, driveway

or parked in the Cul de Sacs. You will be charged a fee if you have

been cited before for the same offense or for repeated violations. This

offense creates emergency vehicles access ability at times and therefore

considered a serious violation.

DO NOT PAINT HOME, WINDOW OR DOOR TRIMS AND GARAGE DOORS

WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL. If it does not meet our ACC Specifications

you will have to repaint. Avoid unnecessary time and money by getting

prior approval of ANY changes to the outside property or home.

DO NOT DISREGARD DEED RESTRICTION LETTERS! Important that you

read and act accordingly. If you think you received this in error, please

contact SCS immediately. Repeated cites or non-compliance letters will

automatically incur a fee against your account.

GO TO THE PORTAL TO OBTAIN A COPY OF DEED RESTRICTIONS

EXAMPLES OF VIOLATIONS:

FENCING: Check your fencing and repair if boards are loose or missing!

Animals can either come in or out of your yard if boards are missing on to

the street or green belt.

GARBAGE CANS MUST BE STORED OUT OF SIGHT! Garbage pickup is

scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays. (Except for holidays) In the evening

please remove trash cans from the street after pickup!

MILDEW or your siding is becoming warped and in need of attention.

YARD needs maintenance or removal of dead bushes.

VEHICLES that are inoperable or with expired tags.

These are just a few examples. For the most part, our homeowners are

doing an excellent job in keeping our neighborhood looking great.

Remember, your home is your palace and most of all your investment.

(SC) BLOCK CAPTAINS

Are you concerned about the appearance of your community? Do you

want to get to know your neighbors and others in our community?

BE A BLOCK CAPTAIN!

A block captain makes a Street roster and periodically will forward emails

to their street from the Southcreek Board. We need volunteers to be

block captains on most of our streets in Southcreek Village. Email Bryne

Liner at bryneliner@gmail.com to volunteer or receive more information

on the block captains program. Email today!

(SC) HOA DUES

Friendly reminder! Your HOA dues help keep Southcreek looking like as

great as it does-please make it a priority to pay your dues if you have not

yet done so.

(SC) FIREWORKS

We can still be a good neighbor and have fun shooting off fireworks.

• Clean up after yourself. Fireworks are not only messy, but also can leave

behind sharp bits that can injure a bare foot or puncture a tire the next

day.

• Be mindful of street traffic. Don’t hold up cars with a cloud of smoke and

don’t use the middle of a road that gets any traffic as your staging area.

• Stay sober. Mixing alcohol or other substances with fireworks or

sparklers never ends well.

Don’t shoot your gun in the air.

WESTCREEK VILLAGE

(WC) WESTCREEK BOARD

Meetings - 4 th Tuesday at 6:30 PM

Forest Heights Pool Meeting Room

(WC) HOME ARCHITECTURAL CHANGES

Please remember that approval from the Architectural Review Committee

must be obtained prior to any changes or improvements made to the

exterior of your property, including but not limited to: repainting, roofing,

door/window replacement, siding replacement and major landscaping.

ARC application forms can be obtained on the copperfield.org website.

(WC) EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS

The Association is creating a database of email addresses so that important

communication can be sent out to the community. If you have never

com with your address and the email you wish to add to your account.

WESTCREEK CRIME WATCH COMMITTEE

Hello, my name is Bill Schindler and I am taking over the Crime Watch

Committee Chairman position, replacing Larry Berger who has for

the past 11 years led this group to being a successful and needed

committee in Westcreek. Thank you Larry, for all the time you have

spent volunteering for this group. Fellow members are Ginnie Duffey,

Janet Gingel and Roxanne Tiner. Please email me at wrspo@sbcglobal.

net if you are interested in being a block captain or would like to join

the committee. While most committees meet monthly we do so by

email during Covid-19. Our mantra is “See Something, Say Something.”

The non-emergency number to the Sheriff Department is 713-221-6000

option 6. Any crime or suspicious activity should be reported as there is

no wrong call. If you park your vehicles on the street/driveway and leave

doors unlocked, especially with valuables inside, you are simply inviting

crime into the Village for easy jobs. While wheel locks don’t always deter

pros, they are helpful for stopping an amateur thief. If your auto does not

have a built in garage door opener than remember to remove the remote

as well, as leaving it in the vehicle gives thieves access to your garage if

broken into.

With open eyes, having no doubt as to should you report something, we

can continue to keep crime out.

If you have travel plans for the holidays, make your neighbors or trusted

friend/relative know. While we all like to post pictures of our travel

adventures, be sure your Facebook friends are the only ones seeing them.

Don’t advertise that you are away.

Be safe and from the Crime Watch Committee - Happy Holidays!

WESTCREEK LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE

Meetings - 2 nd Monday of every month at 6:30 PM

YEAR’S END:

In spite of the Covid virus and the cancellation of our two big events,

the Easter egg hunt and our community planting day, we have had

much success. A year’s recap will follow in the January newsletter. Our

committee has continued to meet both remotely and outdoors with

social distancing. We have had lovely comments from our walkers

and residents; Thanks to all members who diligently serve and Merry

Christmas and Happy New Year to the community!

SLEEPING BEAUTIES IN YOUR YARD! BY JULIE D’ABLAING

Did you know that many butterflies and beneficial insects overwinter either

underground, in the hollow stems of dead plants and in leaf litter? This

is why the Xerces Society, a group dedicated to protecting the declining

invertebrate populations, suggest “Leave the leaves, save the stems and

plant a log.” As you tidy your yards this Fall, perhaps consider if you have

space to pile your leaves in a corner of your yard or use them as mulch for

overwintering butterflies. Many insect species, including beneficial wasps

overwinter inside hollow stems, so perhaps leave some in your yard or cut

them, tidy them to one corner and leave them intact until Spring.

CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY DECORATING:

The Landscape Committee will once again sponsor our “Night Of Lights”

judging in Westcreek. Judging will take place the second weekend of

December. Last year we recruited several volunteers from the community to

help with judging. We would like to repeat this experience. If you would like

to volunteer to assist the committee members in judging please contact us.

There are three categories for decorating: Best-All-Around which includes

décor in the yard, on the house and the door; Best House which includes

decorations on the house and door; and Best Door which includes door

decorations and entry ways. Please consider decorating for the season!!!

COMMUNITY GARDEN:

The Westcreek Village community garden group is well into our fall

gardening efforts. We have beets, kale, swiss chard, carrots, 1015 onions,

sugar snap peas and garlic currently started. Our Texas A&M soil sample

analysis showed our PH to be a bit high so we are going to experiment

in one bed lowering the PH and adding clay to the soil. Our garden

group consists of a mixture of green and brown thumbs so whatever

your experience, you’ll fit in nicely and are welcome to try your hand at

growing something. Someone is usually down at the garden watering,

harvesting, pulling weeds or planting something daily. We meet as a

group monthly down at the garden on the second Saturday each month

9 AM. For more information call 832-368-7457.

LANGHAM CREEK STUDENT

CROWNED MISS TEEN TELUGU UNIVERSE

Langham Creek High School sophomore Nitya Kodali was crowned

Miss Teen Telugu Universe 2020. The international pageant consisted

of finalists from more than 40 countries including India, Canada, New

Zealand, Australia, Dubai and the United Kingdom, as the cultural event

took place in collaboration with more than 100 organizations and 18,000

participants.

A jury panel declared Kodali the winner and she was officially crowned

Oct. 3. The pageant’s vision and goal is to nurture, promote and advance

Telugu culture in young women across the world. It consisted of

multiple rounds, including Telugu speaking, question and answer and

talent. Kodali was among 22

finalists chosen from more

than 700 semifinalists to

compete in the grand finals

representing her Indian

Telugu community despite

being one of the pageant’s

youngest contestants at 15

years old.

“I was in complete shock

when they announced my

name at the pageant,” Kodali

said. “This was my first time

competing in a pageant

and it is honestly a dream

come true to be honored

with such a prestigious title.

My journey to the crown has

certainly been unforgettable

and required lots of hard

work.”

Kodali has added more successful pageant experience, winning titles

of Miss Yuvarani USA and Miss International Congeniality following the

initial crown.

Kodali actively participates in HOSA - Future Health Professionals and

Science Olympiad at Langham Creek. She volunteers at Houston’s local

Telugu school as a teacher to help promote her language and culture. In

addition, she is the founder, director and CEO of Letters & Love, a studentled

volunteer organization dedicated to spreading positivity across the

world through letters.

“Pageants are a wonderful opportunity for self-development and

confidence,” Kodali said. “You meet wonderful people along the way

and truly foster beautiful connections. Telugu culture has always been a

strong part of my identity and I am immensely grateful to represent the

Telugu community across the globe as the world’s first-ever Miss Teen

Telugu Universe.”
