NEWS FROM THE BOARD

Well Neighbors it’s that time again. Annual dues, pay through your

Townsquare account - get there by going to www.lakesideresidential.

com. If you can’t pay the $350 in full by the end of January, set up a

payment plan early, don’t wait till May, that’s when the accounts get sent

to the attorney.

$350 due by January 31 st ,

if you don’t pay then $377.92 due by February 28 th ,

if you don’t pay then $446.34 due by March 31 st ,

if you don’t pay then it goes up to $556.41 due by April 30 th ,

if you don’t pay by then it goes up to $666.48 and you go to the attorney’s

where it jumps up significantly.

YUCK, don’t let this happen it can screw up your year. If you had too much

fun over the holidays, call now and get on a payment plan, pay it off by the

end of May and join us for fun at the pool. If you had fines on your account

make sure you at least pay the dues before the end of the January.

When you mail in your dues please make sure your address is on the

check and that you make it out to Lakeside Residential CAI.

Calendar for the 2020 year will come out next month - hopefully we can

do it all. At our annual meeting we added more Board members so we are

now at five (they are listed alphabetically):

Gabriel Blackwell

Mary Krouse

Judy Smith

4

Yi (Jack) Cheng

Cathy Shook

We will be having our Annual Christmas decorating contest this year. We

will have the gift cards and signs placed in the yards.

LAKESIDE RESIDENTIAL HOA MEETINGS

HOA meetings are held the 2 nd Monday of the month at 6:30 PM. (Unless

Monday is a holiday, then we will meet the following evening.) HOA

meetings are held at the Cypress Crossing Christian Church, located

at 15751 Cypress Rosehill Road, Cypress, Texas 77429. Executive Board

meetings will follow regular homeowners meetings.

Residents who need to talk to the Board are asked to email Sherridda

Williams at Sherridda.Williams@Inframark.com Office - 281-870-0585,

Direct - 281-504-1350 be placed on the executive session agenda.

Our website is www.Lakesideresidential.com. By-Laws, Deed Restrictions,

Pool hours and card applications, a map of the community showing

sections by number, streets and entrances are all there to better help you

with your inquiries as well as responsibilities as a homeowner.

WE LOVE VOLUNTEERS! We would like to build a bank of volunteers to help

with various activities throughout the year! Poolside events, National NIght

Out and other holidays. Your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated by all.

The more volunteers we have, the more events that can take place. Events are

meant to bring our community together and they just don’t happen without

these folks who give up their time and efforts for you. Unfortunately, they are

taken for granted, when in fact, they are much appreciated by the Board.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR. Whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, the

deed restrictions of Lakeside apply to you. We all want our neighborhood

to look good, feel like home and keep up the value of our properties.

Association by-laws, deed restrictions, Architectural changes, etc can be

found on our website Lakesideresidential.com.

Whether at a Board meeting, email, phone or one-on-one conversations,

there are a number of requests and complaints that come from the

neighborhood residents, both members and non-members alike. Most

of these can be summed up into:

• Keep down the noise! Barking Dogs, loud music.

• Walk your dog, respect other folk’s yards, take along your “poo-pickup”

bags and clean up the mess.

• Speaking of yards, clean them up. Plant new, remove old plants. Mow

as needed to keep the neighborhood looking well kept and desirable to

live in.

• Power wash that mildew off your house.

• Vehicle storage is not allowed on your lot, please have current registration

stickers on all your vehicles. They are supposed to be drivable. Covering

with tarps won’t help! The disabled cars parked in the driveway are in

violation of HOA guidelines and will initiate letters to homeowners. Any

disabled vehicle parked on the street is a county offense and should be

reported to the Constable.

• Inspect your fence for any missing or damaged fence pickets, we are

required to maintain and replace pickets as they deteriorate and fail

• Mow your lawn and edge the walks. It is required of every homeowner.

• Trash bins are not to be visible from the street. Place them at the curb

the night before only on garbage pickup days and retrieve them on

collection day by nightfall. Store them out of view like in the garage,

backyard or behind a barrier on the side of your house - the front porch

is not the right place.

• When you order new cable or satellite service, remind the installer that

you live in a HOA and there are restrictions. All of the installers are aware

of all restrictions and will gladly install correctly if they understand that

you are concerned about your HOA and therefore your home value.

• Door and or trim painting must be approved via ARC, you can retrieve

an ARC form through the lakesideresidential.com website.

• SLOW DOWN!!! This is a neighborhood! 30 MPH may be too fast. The kids

on the street are much more important than any excuse for fast and or

reckless driving. Tell your teen drivers that you expect them to love and

respect the neighborhood.

CONSTABLE PATROL 281-376-3472 - As a reminder, we are patrolled by

Harris County Precinct 4 Constables, through MUD 391.

Please add the dispatch number to your cell phones or post in a visible

place at home in case you need support in a non-life threatening situation.

If you don’t call to report a crime or suspected criminal activity in progress

or suspicious persons or vehicles, no arrests will be made, the crime or

criminal activity will continue and the Constable’s Office will not know that

anything is going on. The social communities that we use to communicate

with each other is NOT monitored by the constables. Posting on any

media site is not notification to get assistance. Yes, we have those rare

occasions where a Deputy, by pure luck, drives up on a crime or suspicious

activity in progress. But why rely on luck when you have a telephone? The

number to call is 281-376-3472. If there is a life threatening emergency,

call 9-1-1. The Constable Patrol also offers a free vacation watch service,

keeping your home under watch while you’re away.

LOITERING AND VANDALISM

Please help us to keep our recreation areas safe and clean by reporting

any and all loitering after dark directly to the Constable at 281-376-3472.

Please also remember to report any suspicious persons walking around

the community or at the parks immediately to the Constable Patrol. Don’t

call the management co or HOA Director, We’re NOT the law! Better safe

than sorry!

TRASHCANS

BEST TRASH is the service for Lakeside Residential, your community.

They can be contacted 281-313-2378. Check their website for holidays,

remembering they will pick up on the next regular pick up day.

• Please do not put trash out before the night before trash day and be

sure to pick them up after collection.

• Trash Cans make the streets look very messy when not out for pick-up.

• Trash cans have the most violation letters sent out.

• Remember to place trashcans in the garage, backyard or behind a

barrier by the house, that looks nice and hides the can. The new barrier

December 2020 | Villages of Cypress Lakes Lakeside


must hide cans from the street and be acceptable. Cans just stored by

your house or on your patio will get you a compliance violation letter.

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE

So you’d like to build an igloo or paint your house red and blue to

pay tribute to your favorite sports team? These are easily identified as

requests that would not be allowed in our neighborhood. But what are

the kinds of things for which you need to submit a request for approval to

the HOA? Basically, if you are making a change to your home or yard, you

are required to submit a request. Some common requests are:

• Installing a pool

• Replacing windows, doors or shutters

• Building a covered patio

• Installing a storage unit

• Installing an irrigation system

• Replacing your roof

• Painting your home/trim

• Removing/replacing the trees in your front yard

• Expanding your driveway

Keep in mind that approval may take up to 30 days - plan ahead! Submit

your application early, so that your project is not delayed. The ACC

committee is made up of volunteers and our goal is to provide a beautiful

and consistent look to our neighborhood.

REPLACING YOUR FENCE

This one is a little more complex. If you are replacing your fence with

EXACTLY the same fence (in the same place with the same size boards and

the same pattern), then you don’t need HOA approval. However, if you

are CHANGING anything - the pattern of the fence (including installing

a rot board at the bottom), moving it, adding a gate or changing the

material of your fence, then you need approval of the HOA.

Please, remember to pick up after your dogs when you go out for a walk,

there are plenty of trash bins and doggy poo stations.

How do you like our new back fence along Huffemister?

This year we refurbished our monument signs.

Thanks to our Mud Board member, in addition to the lake walkway, we

will be getting two benches and two waste receptacles.
