COPPER LAKES BAGGED CLIPPINGS

AND YARD WASTE

It has come to the attention of the HOA that many residents/homeowners

place bagged yard clippings on the curb prior to the appropriate time

when such items can be placed there for trash pick. As pointed out in

Section 6.6 of the Deed Restrictions: “...container may he placed in a

designated area for garbage or trash pickup no earlier than six o’clock

p.m. on the day preceding trash pickup of such garbage...”

If you cut your own grass and bag the clippings please leave them at the

curb in accordance with the day and time of the deed restrictions. If you

have a service cut your lawn and they bag your clippings, please consider

asking them to mulch the clippings instead of bagging. If they do bag, please

do not leave the bag at the curb unless it is in compliance with Section 6.6

of the Deed Restrictions. Most experts agree that it is better to leave the

clippings on your lawn as they return nutrients and it is much easier than

bagging. By mulching your grass clippings you are also saving time for you

and the trash pick contractors as well as preserving landfill space.

The Full Text of Section 6.6: SECTION 6.6. RESTRICTIONS ON GARBAGE

AND TRASH - No refuse, garbage, trash, lumber, grass, shrub or tree

clippings, plant waste, compost, metal, hulk materials, scrap, refuse or

debris of any kind shall be kept, stored or allowed to accumulate on any

Lot except within an enclosed container of a type, size and style approved

by the Board and appropriately screened from view, except that any such

container may he placed in a designated area for garbage or trash pickup

no earlier than six o’clock p.m. on the day preceding trash pickup of such

garbage and trash and shall he returned to an enclosed structure or an

area appropriately screened from view no later than midnight of the day

of pickup of such garbage and trash.

COPPER LAKES TENNIS COURTS

Many residents are already enjoying the refurbished tennis courts. This

summer, we replaced the chain link fence and resurfaced the courts. New

nets were purchased and the light posts were painted. We also plan to

install new benches. If you have not yet seen or enjoyed them, check

them out.

Remember, the courts are for Copper Lakes residents and guests. They

must be relinquished for scheduled league matches of Copper Lakes

teams.

To preserve them for everyone, it is important that the courts be used

for tennis only. They are not for soccer, skateboards, skates, etc. Access is

with the same card you use for the pools.

SECURITY REPORT - COPPER LAKES

To keep everyone in Copper Lakes better informed about the kinds

of incidences occurring on your street or near your homes, we are

recommending our Copper Lakes neighbors take advantage of the

following resources:

www.crimereports.com - Zoom-in to Copper Lakes to see what is

happening in our neighborhood. The incidences are recorded by the

HCSO. To get the most out of the site, it’s a good idea to register - after

which you will be able to open the website starting in Copper Lakes

and have access to historical data as well. Take some time to familiarize

yourself with all of the features on the website. It’s a valuable asset.

HARRIS COUNTY ALARM DETAIL

In order to increase compliance and spread awareness, our office is

requesting your assistance in informing residents in your community

through your HOA newsletter or your scheduled HOA meetings of the

need to obtain a permit for operating an alarm system, residential or

business, within unincorporated Harris County. Many residents and

businesses are unaware of the requirement to obtain an alarm permit

once an alarm system has been installed and activated by the alarm

company. Alarm systems are established and defined in the Local

Government Code 233 (subchapter D), as well as the authority to

regulate, adopt rules and impose penalties for unpermitted locations.

Obtaining the required permit will avoid the issuance of a citation and

excessive false alarm fees. The fee for current permit issuance is $35

with a yearly renewal fee of $10. All permit fees are waived for senior

citizens 65 years or older. Under current guidelines, a permitted location

is allowed five (5) free false alarms annually. Any subsequent false alarms

during your permitted year are subject to a $75 fine that is billed to the

permit holder’s address. If a site has an active alarm system, yet does not

have a permit to operate such alarm, a false alarm may result in a Class C

citation, which could range up to $500.

Should you or your residents require a copy of the permit application

form, or would like to review the regulations regarding permit

requirements, you may do so by visiting the Harris County Sheriff’s Office

website at www.hcso.hctx.net. The application can be printed from the

website, then completed and mailed to our office with the applicable

fees. We are currently in the planning stages of making the application

and payment process available on-line for the convenience to the public.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Harris County Sheriff’s

Office Alarm Detail at 713-755-4600 M-F, 8 AM- 5 PM. If you would like

any of our Alarm Detail personnel to attend one of your HOA meetings,

we would be glad to attend and answer as many questions as possible.

LOST AND FOUND PETS

Residents can now place pictures and information for lost and found

animals under the neighborhood pictures tab of the Copper Lakes

website, www.copperlakes.com. If you have lost or found a pet, please

use this great tool to let the neighborhood know and hopefully reunite

the pet with their family.

ATTENTION! PET POOPS / YOU SCOOP

Please be respectful of community grounds and neighbors’ yards. If your

pet poops during your walk, be prepared to scoop and trash. Come with

a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. It may not be the

most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show your respect for

every homeowner and our beautiful community.

HARRIS COUNTY LEASH LAW

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.

While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone

who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of

animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting

hurt trying to avoid the animal.

Harris County Animal Control advises, “All dogs and cats must be kept

under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas.

The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep

any unlicensed dog or cat, nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”

Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following

circumstances:

1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in

length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of

controlling or governing the dog or cat in question

2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle

3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not

have access to sidewalk or street.”

8

While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work

or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.

Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all

our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect

anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet

owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing

to properly restrain their pet. To make a complaint or report an animal

that is not properly restrained please contact:

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

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

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

been 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.”

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.

Blueberry Popovers

You could make this on National Blueberry Popover Day March 10th!

INGREDIENTS:

3 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 equal-sized pieces

1 cup whole milk

3 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, or to taste

1 lemon, halved

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

into each of 6 large muffin cups. Put muffin tin in preheated oven until butter melts,

about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Beat milk, eggs, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl. Whisk flour into

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

popovers. Serve warm.

March Gardening Tips

VEGETABLES: Plant vegetables such as tomatoes, sweet corn and

snap beans and pepper, as well as cucumbers, lima or butter beans,

cantaloupe, okra (if the soil has warmed sufficiently - 70 degrees F. or

higher), southern peas, pumpkin, squash, peanuts and watermelon.

LAWN: Re-sod or replant as needed with turfgrasses adapted to this

part of Texas and suited to the planting location (shade or sun). • When

resodding semi-shaded areas with St. Augustine, use ONLY the variety

Floratam for best pest resistance. See www.plantanswers.com/grass.htm.

TREES AND SHRUBS: Plant container-grown trees and shrubs as soon as

possible. In shady areas, where grass is difficult to grow, consider planting a

dependable groundcover such as English ivy, Asian jasmine, vinca or one of

the prostrate junipers. • Prune spring flowering and evergreen shrubs during

early March. However, be sure to prune spring flowering shrubs after they have

bloomed. • Fertilize with a pre-plant application of a slow-release fertilizer

analysis such as 19 - 5 - 9 at the rate of 3 pounds per 100 square feet of garden

planting area. Early March is the ideal time to fertilize landscape plants because

you give them food just before the spring growing season starts.

NATIONAL PLANT A FLOWER DAY - MARCH 12TH

Spring is just around the corner and March 12 th is the day to participate

in National Plant a Flower Day. Each year this day is dedicated to the

planting of flowers and looking forward to the spring season. Flower

gardening has become a hobby for many, young and old and National

Plant a Flower Day is a start to the new season each year.

Marigolds and Daffodils are the flowers of this month. It’s good to know

the zone you live in to determine which flowers grow as perennials (those

that grow back every year) in your area and which are considered annuals

(those that require planting every year). To find out more check out the

USDA site for Hardiness Zones.

Seeds can be started inside and set in a sunny window. When the weather

is nicer, move those plants outside. Keep the soil moist, but not wet and

follow the instructions on the seed package for proper germination of

the seedling. For those who can’t wait, get out those seed catalogs and

start planning your next flower garden.

Are you in a warmer climate? Then it’s time to get out the trowel and

the garden gloves and start turning over some new soil. Sow some new

seeds, bulbs or plants and nurture those blossoms into a brilliant blaze

for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.

Tips for Starting a Flower Garden: Start with a potted garden. If you aren’t

ready to tear up a patch of lawn, this is a good way to go. They do require

more watering, but less care overall. • Select plants that grow well in

your spot. Some plants grow well in the shade and others prefer the sun.

Others love both! • Did you know gardeners who prefer perennial gardens

have to thin their flower beds every couple of years? They also like to

share the extra bulbs and seeds with those who are new to gardening,

so if you know someone with a green thumb, get to know them better.

You might get some free plants, advice and a budding friendship! • Local

greenhouses stock plants that grow well in your area. Don’t be afraid to

ask them questions and shop there frequently. • Let’s all work together

by planting a flower and helping make the world a more beautiful place.
