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.

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

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
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.”
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:

LIVESTOCK SHOW AND SALE
The 27 th Annual CFISD Livestock Show Association Show and Sale, held

generosity from the CFISD community through the live auction, freezer
sale, monetary donations and the first-ever online sale, despite the
The Premium Sale (live auction) unofficially raised $281,950, which is
$23,250 more than last year. Final amounts from the Freezer Sale (animals

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

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
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.”

Easy Banana Cream Pie
You could make this on National Banana Cream Pie Day March 2nd!
3 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 (3.5 ounce) package instant banana pudding mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 bananas, sliced
1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
1 cup heavy cream
Using an electric mixer, whip 3 cups heavy cream on low speed until
it starts to thicken. Add crushed ice and continue to whip another 4
minutes. Increase speed and add vanilla and banana pudding mixes,
whipping until pudding mixes are blended fully with the cream and the
mixture thickens. Increase speed to high and beat until mixture is stiff.
Line the bottom and half way up the sides of pie crust with banana
slices. Cover bananas with half of the banana cream mixture and top
completely with banana slices. Top with the remaining banana cream
mixture. In a small bowl, whip 1 cup cream until stiff peaks form. Using a
pastry bag, pipe cream onto top of pie, covering completely. Refrigerate
1 hour before serving.
You could make this on National Blueberry Popover Day March 10th!
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
the milk mixture until you have a batter. Divide batter between muffin cups. Drop
even amounts of blueberries into each batter portion. Stir 1 tablespoon sugar and
cinnamon together in a small bowl, sprinkle evenly over the batter portions.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees

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.
