YARD OF THE MONTH

The Sheffield HOA wants to recognize one neighbor every month for

their dedication and devotion to the upkeep of their front yard. Each

month’s winner will be featured in the Sheffield newsletter and will get

bragging rights with a Yard of the Month sign displayed in their yard for

that month. Residents can win only once per calendar year and must be

in good standing. Good luck!

GARBAGE SERVICE

The trash pick-up schedule in Sheffield is Tuesday and Friday. Heavy trash

days are every other Tuesday. Please remember to keep your garbage cans

at least three feet away from other garbage cans, cars, poles or anything

that may block the truck from gaining access to the can on pick-up days.

Also remember that items piled up by the garbage can will not be picked

up except on heavy trash days. Recycling is picked up on Friday.

REMINDER - the garbage contract is through your water company –

Langham Creek UD. If you need more specific information on pick-days

or any other item that is related to garbage pick-up please call Langham

Creek UD at 281-376-8802 or email them at customerservice@wdmtexas.

com or you can call the garbage company, WCA at 281-368-8397. This is

not an HOA contract or a service that is provided by the HOA.

REMINDER FROM THE SHEFFIELD BOARD

PLEASE NOTE: An ACC application must be submitted and approved prior

to you adding shrubs or fencing in the front of your property. Please see

the HOA guidelines regarding fencing requirements to ensure that fencing

additions meet guidelines and that you submit your plans and application

for approval PRIOR to doing any modifications. The ACC application form

can be downloaded from the Crest Management website at www.crestmanagement.com,

please select Communities at the top of the page and

then select Sheffield. The ACC application will be located at the bottom of

the page. The applications should be submitted to Crest Management as

indicated on the form. Please, remember Sheffield HOA does not manage

your trash service. This service is through Langham Creek MUD (water bill)

281-579-4500. If you have any questions regarding the new service, please

refer back to the insert that was included in your water bill or contact WCA

at 281-368-8397 or the MUD. We thank you for your cooperation in this

matter. Sincerely, Your Sheffield Board

ACC APPLICATION

Please request the ACC application for your home improvement or

modification. Please include all the necessary forms, photo, paint samples,

solar screen samples, drawings, brochure, lot survey and your signature

for us to complete your request in a timely manner. If these items are not

submitted with your application, your request is denied. A LOT SURVEY

IS AN ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING OF YOUR PROPERTY SHOWING YOUR

HOME, EASEMENTS AND BUILDING LINES. A COPY CAME WITH YOUR

CLOSING PAPERS.

You will be notified by letter after the committee has made a decision.

They have 30 days to review and respond to your application. If you have

any questions regarding your forms, please contact Crest Management.

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER, WITHOUT PROVIDING EVERYTHING WE NEED-

YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE DENIED.

DEED RESTRICTION VIOLATIONS

Do you know what the top three reasons management companies send

out deed restriction letters? The first is not keeping your yard mowed and

weeded. Mow your yard on a regular basis, keeping it a little higher in

the summer months, which helps in water retention and crowding out

weeds. The second is leaving your trashcans out in front of the house or

garage. Trashcans should be kept out of sight (in the garage, behind the

privacy fence or behind shrubs or a purpose built enclosure. Contact Crest

Management if you wish to build a trashcan enclosure for Architectural

Control forms. The third reason is mildew on the house siding. This often

happens on shady areas of the house. Power washing or spraying with a

cleaning solution for mildew often takes care of the problem.

GARAGE SALE SIGNS

Placing garage sale signs in the flower and shrub beds within the

neighborhood is not permitted. Such signs found in the flower and shrub

beds will be removed immediately and placed in the trash.

COMMUNITY INFORMATION / MEETING NOTICES

If you are interested in receiving Board meeting email notifications,

please go to the Crest website at www.crest-management.com and go to

communities, then scroll down to Sheffield and there you will find a place

to sign up with your email address and if you scroll to the bottom, you can

obtain community information, legal documents or applications as well.

PETS

Please remember that you are not allowed by law to let your dogs and cats

run loose in the neighborhood. If caught, you may receive a ticket in the

amount of up to $500 for such a violation (we have had residents receive

such a ticket). If you see loose pets you can contact Harris County Animal

Control. A number of Sheffield residents either walk their dogs or let their

cats run loose. It is a violation of deed restrictions to let your pet leave their

poop on another resident’s lawn or the common grounds (they belong to

all of Sheffield’s residents). If your pet does have to go to the bathroom,

please be courteous and carry a plastic bag (store bags or the newspaper

delivery bag are great for this), pick up the pile by placing your hand inside

the bag, grab the pile through the bag, tie the bag up and throw it in the

garbage. To report stray or unconfined animals call 281-999-3191, Monday

thru Friday during the hours of 9 AM until 6 PM.

VANDALISM

Remember, if you see suspicious activity in or around Sheffield, please

immediately call the Harris County Sheriff’s Department at 713-221-6000.

representative and can be reached at 281-579-0761 or by email Monica@

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.”

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

FAMILY FOCUSED. VALUE DRIVEN. Cub Scouting is a year-round

program uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys & girls

(kindergarten through fifth grade) and their families. The program offers

fun and challenging activities that promote character development and

physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program

parents make the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of

their children. SOME KIDS AVOID OBSTACLES. SCOUTS OVERCOME THEM.

is something for everyone in Scouting! New scouting units are starting

the needs of our scouts more nimbly. We currently have boys from ages 11

to 17 within our group working to make Eagle. We try to camp monthly,

with a wide variety of locations on our agenda. The different locations are

chosen by the senior boys to more directly meet our training needs and

to keep expenses low. In fact, we have some of the lowest expenses in the

area. Our adult leaders are all experienced with years of scouting under

their belt per individual. We also work closely with several local packs of

cub scouts and participate in civic duties around the area as well. Please

else the scouts can dream up. We do high-adventure camping at

Philmont and Seabase. Our advancement program has enabled scout to

achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout at 10 times the national average

rate. We see scouting as a practice run on adult life. Scouts learn about

leadership and teamwork through having to work together in the field.

We learn about responsibility through fund-raising activities that have

allowed the entire troop to pay for their own summer camp each year.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA -

COPPERHEAD DISTRICT

For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found

in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in

helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting

helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership

skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.

The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities

that allow them to:

• Try new things.

• Provide service to others.

• Build self-confidence.

• Reinforce ethical standards.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as

individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility

and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,

peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made. Scouting

provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting through

the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which help our

youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area

Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5

to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing

units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.
