BRADFORD COLONY 1 & 2

(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD

ANNUAL DUES AND LATE FEES

We want to give a big thank you to all those homeowners who have

already paid their 2021 annual assessments and for those who have not,

late fees and interests will be added to your outstanding balance every

month starting 2/1/2021 as long as the balance is not paid off, this can

add up to a lot of money. It is really worth it to take time to contact our

PMG manager to arrange for a payment plan instead of keep ignoring the

dues owe. Bear in mind that there is handling fees to payment plans that

we cannot avoid. The best way to economize so you don’t have all these

fees adding up is to pay off your entire balance and if possible, to start

prepaying a little bit every month for next year. Prepay installment does

not have handling fees.

If you would like to arrange for a payment plan, please contact our

management company new rep Anthony Washington at 713-329-7100

or via email awashington@pmghouston.com immediately.

I encourage everyone check their balances just in case there is an error,

you can contact our manager and resolve the error as soon as you know

of it. If you have already signed up in TownSq, you can log in to the app

and check your balance there. It will also show date your payment is

posted to your account (hence if there are fees after 1/31). Any balance

left in your account will keep accumulating late fees and interest every

month until you take care of it. Not knowing you have a balance does

not equate they will be written off or waived. To be fair to those who paid

timely, late fees and interests will not be waived anymore.

DEED RESTRICTIONS

Please remember we have deed restrictions in our community. These

restrictions are created so that the property values in our subdivision

can be maintained to a reasonable level. Violations not corrected after

repeat warnings may be sent to attorney for legal actions to enforce the

restrictions. This is only fair to all the homeowners who always follow the

restrictions and always submit ACC requests to get approval prior to work

done to the outside of their homes. It is also a violation to have home

businesses in our subdivision. Deed restrictions is a document you can

download from TownSq if you are a new homeowner or do not have the

document.

ACC requests are required and approval must be obtained prior to any

outside work done. Consequences of not doing so will include at owner’s

expense to remove what was done and if warnings are ignored, legal

actions may follow. The Board does not like to take legal actions unless

really necessary. We are all homeowners in the same community and it

is not our preferred actions. But if you are selling a home and you have

potential buyers coming to the neighborhood, you sure don’t want

them to have the impression that lawns are overgrown and yards are

“junky” and streets and driveways are crammed with cars or resting on

bricks…. The curbside appearances of all homes do represent our entire

neighborhood and we do not want to be labeled as a “junky”, “appeared

to be unsafe” or a “run down” subdivision just because a few homes have

out of control lawns and home business are making enormous amount

of noise doing work on their driveways every day. These are the main

reasons citations go out to the homeowners requiring corrective actions.

NEW PROPERTY MANAGER

We have a new property manager with PMG this year - Anthony

Washington. His contact information is 713-329-7100 or email:

awashington@pmghouston.com. All processes and requirements

remain the same no change. If you have deed violations, you will still

get a warning letter to fix the problem. If you are late on you annual

assessment payment, late fees and interests are added, etc… but you

now have a new contact person at PMG(our management company).

MONTHLY MEETING

Our monthly meeting is being held on 2 nd Tuesday every month virtually

via conference call. Please see detail information in TownSq. The Board

welcomes homeowners’ input to how better improve our neighborhood

or join to hear updates around our community. It is much easier to

join our meeting via conference call than in person so we hope more

homeowners will join our discussion every month.

BRADFORD COLONY SECTION 3

(BCS3) GARAGE SALES

At present, there are no plans to have a neighborhood wide garage sale

for BCS3 this year. But the Bylaws allow for individual residents to have

up to four garage sales per year. If you are interested in having your own

garage sale, please contact any Board member to let them know you are

planning to do this. Thank you for your cooperation as to this issue.

(BCS3) CONTACT THE BOARD

As is the case with everything in our small neighborhood, every resident

should feel free to contact any Board member as to any issue or question

that you have about BCS3. Contact information for all the Board members

is located inside of this publication.

CHARLESTOWN COLONY

(CHC) NOTES FROM THE BOARD

Spring is here! The Board hosted another Sheriff Deputy meet and greet

in the park a couple of weeks ago. We had a great turn-out. If you missed

the chance to meet the Sheriff Deputies who patrol the area, there will

be more opportunities in the future. This was a way for the community

to come together to discuss and voice safety concerns in Charlestown

Colony and surrounding subdivisions. There has been an increase in

criminal activity and this is a great way to help keep our loved ones safe.

HOA Annual Assessments: If you have not paid the annual HOA dues by

now, it is delinquent! There was no increase in HOA dues for 2021.

New Application: https://app.townsq.io: The management company

is using a new application which is much more robust 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.

Charlestown Colony Park: Please contact the Board or PMG if you

have any information. Our community park is enjoyed by many of the

residents and their family members! It has bounced back since the days of

Hurricane Harvey! Let’s keep it looking amazing! There have been reports

of trash and debris in the park where the trashcans were overflowing

which is an eye sore for the residents living around the park. Please

remember to pick up after ourselves. If you are using the park’s trash can

as a personal trash bin, please stop it and use your own trash cans.

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.

Our Furry Family Members: There have been several complaints

about dogs not being on a leash when being walked and pet owners

not picking up after their animal does their “business.” Please be mindful

and respectful of our neighbors and common areas such as the park and

pick up after your pets. There continues to be a noticeable number of lost

and found pets posted on the Nextdoor Ap. As we continue to rebuild,

please secure the furry family members by fixing broken fencing or other

measures of security for our loving pets.

Home Renovation Projects: It has been almost 3 and ½ years since

Harvey devastated Houston and for those who are still working on

repairs, please be conscious of our deed restrictions. The Architectural

Review form is required to complete exterior projects such as replacing

March 2021 | Colonies


fences, exterior painting and pretty much any other exterior project attached to the home

that can be viewed from the street. The Architectural form can be obtained from Principle

Management Group Houston (PMG). We have all endured a lot due to the flood and have

probably filled out enough forms over the last few months to last a life time. However, this

form is just another step in the renovation process and keeping the project on track. Our deed

restrictions have these forms in place to maintain the appearance of Charlestown Colony. If

exterior projects are completed without consent, the homeowner could be subject to make

changes such as repainting the house all over again which is costly and time consuming.

Most of the Architectural Review forms can be processed within 10 business days, but it

could take up to 30 days. If it is urgent, please indicate that on the form and include a phone

number. PMG may be able to offer a verbal, “yes” to get the project started while the form is

being processed.

Debris Removal & Deed Restriction Violations: It is the homeowner’s responsibility to

remove trash and debris from the front of their home. If more time is needed for repairs, the

HOA Board and management company will review these on a case-by-case basis. Please reach

out to the management company. Got The Nextdoor App? https://nextdoor.com/. It only takes

a few minutes to sign up and it helps keep everyone informed on current events in our area.

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

not been paid yet, expect a certified letter with 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 or make a payment arrangement. The

Board worked diligently to maintain our HOA dues at $330 for 2020.

be honoring “yard of the month”. Once a month a different homeowner

will be given a $25 gift card to Lowes or Home Depot, as well as a sign

placed in their yard- from the HOA- to congratulate them on a job well

done! Investing in our community, with homeowners who take pride in

where they live!

(CC) DID YOU KNOW

* Keeping gutters, irrigation systems and the curb along your street clean

helps with clogs and feral animals. Cleaning these items regularly helps

maintain a healthy system and promotes water flow for those heavy rain

seasons that will quickly approach us.

* Best way of cleaning vinyl siding is with soaping water and a long

handled brush

* Dryer sheets aren’t just for the dryer. They’re great for removing and

repelling dust anywhere in the house.Run them over your dust-magnets,

like the baseboards or the blades of your ceiling fan.

* The ideal time to water your pants is in the morning or evening

* Coffee grounds and egg shells stimulates healthy grass and plant

growth through the slow release of nitrogen and phosphorus minerals.

Earth worms also enjoy coffee and through their digestion, they aerate

the lawn with their casting, while facilitating healthy microbial activity.

COMMUNITY GENEROUSLY SUPPORTS 2021

LIVESTOCK SHOW AND SALE

The 27 th Annual CFISD Livestock Show Association Show and Sale, held

Feb. 1 st -6 th at the CFISD Exhibit Center, saw an incredible amount of

generosity from the CFISD community through the live auction, freezer

sale, monetary donations and the first-ever online sale, despite the

COVID-19 pandemic.

The Premium Sale (live auction) unofficially raised $281,950, which is

$23,250 more than last year. Final amounts from the Freezer Sale (animals

not placing high enough for the live auction), Agriculture Mechanics and

Horticulture silent auction and additional gifts to students are not yet

available. More than 130 projects had pre-sale commitments to purchase

and animals in the Freezer Sale sold out in record time. In addition, one

new record was set for Grand Champion Turkey:

• Texas Travel Plaza & Cana Tire Inc. paid $20,000 for the Grand Champion

Turkey exhibited by Mason Oehlers from Jersey Village High School.

“The support from the community was amazing,” said Denise Kubecka,

director of career and technical education. “The common message

community members shared was that they were there to ensure our

FFA students were rewarded for their hard work and they did not want

the pandemic to take anything away from that. So many wanted to be

a part of this event that the students will remember for a lifetime. The

community’s outpouring of support was heartwarming. This would not

have happened without the parents, community members, countless

CFISD departments and, of course, our ag teachers working together on

the common goal to put our students first. Thank you to all. We did it!”

The following Livestock Royalty representatives were chosen:

• Show King - Reagon Carter from Bridgeland FFA;

• Show Queen - Evyn Barnes from Bridgeland FFA;

• Mr. Show Teen - Lucas Payan from Bridgeland FFA;

• Miss Show Teen - Emily Fayard from Cypress Woods FFA; and

• Top Hand (Sales) - Kaitlyn Smith from Cypress Woods FFA.

FOUR HIGH SCHOOLS RECEIVE FIRST WAVE OF

SYNTHETIC TURF FIELDS

Four high schools have finished receiving new synthetic turf baseball

and softball fields as part of the community-supported 2019 bond

referendum. Cypress Ridge, Cypress Ranch, Cypress Woods and Cypress

Falls high schools each received the improvements this year, at an

estimated cost of $14.5 million. The project was designed by IBI Architects

and constructed by ICI Construction.

“A three-phase plan is being implemented for the design and

construction of the fields,” said Roy Sprague, CFISD chief operations

officer. “Phase 1 started in 2019, with those four campuses having

March 2021 | Colonies


een substantially completed. Phase 2 design work is being completed

and construction is anticipated to start in April 2021 and the Phase 3

campuses design work will start in early 2022.”

Phase 2 is scheduled to include Cypress Creek, Cypress Lakes, Jersey

Village and Langham Creek high schools. Phase 3 is scheduled to include

Cypress Springs, Cypress Park and Bridgeland high schools. The Cy-Fair

High School synthetic turf fields will be constructed as part of the Cy-Fair

Multi-Campus Master Plan Improvements, with design starting in late

2021.

The synthetic turf, supplied by FieldTurf USA, allows for almost immediate

playability after rainfall; as well as less groundskeeping and maintenance,

year-round availability and increased safety.

“We are excited for the start of our upcoming softball and baseball

seasons and the recent addition of our four baseball and four softball

turfed fields,” said Ray Zepeda, CFISD director of athletics. “The entire

project will allow us to have a facility that is much more useful and

functional for our programs, athletes and coaches.”

In addition to the surface improvements, the project also increased the

seating capacity at the Cypress Ridge and Cypress Ranch softball fields

and the Cypress Woods and Cypress Falls baseball facilities.

“We are hopeful that this will allow us to host more playoff contests within

our school district,” Zepeda said. “The quality of the materials and the scope

of the entire project reflects our communities’ commitment to having firstclass

facilities for our athletes. We sincerely appreciate the support of our

community and will certainly take great pride in our new facilities.”

We have done everything we can to try and reopen our doors, including

becoming the first theater in the country to install hospital grade UV lights

in our air filtration system. We even offered a safe and distanced indoor

concert as well as an indoor offering from our educational touring unit

this past fall. And when those projects proved financially challenging and

COVID numbers spiked again, we created “Light Up the Lot” and moved

all our programming outdoors. We’ve never given up. We never will give

up. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we find ourselves

needing to pivot once more. Which brings us to the announcement of

our virtual season. Go to www.adplayers.org for all the information.

1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

3 bananas, sliced

DIRECTIONS:

Using an electric mixer, whip 3 cups heavy cream on low speed until

INGREDIENTS:

3 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 equal-sized pieces

1 cup whole milk

3 eggs, beaten

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Put a piece of butter

minutes. Dust tops of popovers with confectioners’ sugar. Squeeze lemon juice over

popovers. Serve warm.
