PLEASE LIMIT STREET PARKING ON TRASH DAYS

To help avoid trash not being picked up, please do not park your vehicles

in the street on Trash days (Wednesday and Saturday). When multiple

vehicles are parked in the street, the truck is unable to get through. Thank

you in advance for your assistance with this matter.

WATER USAGE

The website eyeonwater.com lets you track your water usage. You will

need to sign up with the district ID, a dash and then your account number

as the account number on the signup screen. These numbers are on your

water bills.

DOGGIE DON’TS

Most of our dog owners are responsible, using a leash and picking up

after your pets. We thank you!

HOWEVER - We have received reports of dog owners allowing their dogs

to defecate and urinate in yards. This is especially a problem in hightraffic

areas near park entrances. Be aware that it is not just your dog.

Once a yard has been “used,” other dogs want to do so as well. A resident

should not have to pick up after even one dog, much less ten. In addition,

runners and walkers in our parks don’t enjoy dodging excrement. Please

carry a bag and pick up after your pet.

Remember also, that even the sweetest dog may seem intimidating to

some people. Respect their rights and comply with leash laws.

TRASH DAYS

Garbage pick up occurs on Wednesday and Saturday.

HOW DO WE LOOK?

Curb appeal has a big impact on your property value, even if your home

is not for sale. Buyers evaluate the neighborhood, not just one house.

Stand back from your house and take a close look to see if it needs a

mini-makeover. Think about security as well. Has your shrubbery become

overgrown, covering windows or blocking the sidewalk? Do low-hanging

limbs obscure the front? Does the lawn have brown areas or weeds? Is

the siding mildewed or paint peeling? You may want to ask a friend’s

opinion; it is easy to overlook things we see everyday. Make plans now

to spruce up.

Cars that are parked in the street are also a turn-off to buyers. Make the

extra effort to keep cars in the driveway. It looks better and is safer for

your neighbors and your car.

MOST COMMON DEED VIOLATIONS

The Volume of letters sent regarding Violations continues to be an

increasing expense for the Copper Grove Home Owners Association. All

expenses incurred including postage to mail out fines, weigh seriously on

ONE CALL DOES IT ALL!

What to do when your neighbor’s dog won’t stop barking in Houston

- Is your neighbor’s dog keeping you up at all hours of the night and

day with its incessant barking? There is nothing worse, especially when

you or your kids are trying to sleep! Perhaps the dog barking is setting

off your dog and all you can hear all day is a chorus of bad barking?

Whatever the case is - you have rights and there are some steps that

you should take in order to get the barking to stop. You will probably

want to avoid actually confronting the neighbor as this can often end

up in a rather heated debate. You should write or type up a small note

mentioning the dog barking - nine times out of ten, the owner will be at

work and probably doesn’t even realize what is going on. Make it short,

to the point and polite - exactly how you would want someone to talk

to you if your dog was making a crazy racket! If nothing happens or the

letter isn’t in some way acknowledged you can always turn to your local

housing organization or landlord if you are renting. There will normally

be noise stipulations in rental agreements, so it is well worth finding out

if your neighbors are renting and getting in touch with their landlord as

well. You will find that most residential areas have noise control rules set

in place, so don’t be afraid to find out what your rights are. If nothing

happens from your complaint to the owner of the dog and the housing

organization, (or neither of you are renting) it’s time to take a different

approach. This time, grab some information on the noise control in

your area and print them out. Combine this in a neat little package

with another letter, basically saying exactly what the first one did, but

this time mentioning that this is the second time that you have tried to

contact them about the complaint and that you will be taking the matter

further if nothing is resolved. Again, do not be threatening or menacing

in your words or language. If you still don’t get a positive outcome from

your effort, it’s time to call the boys in blue. You will need to remember

that a dog barking situation is not always going to be a priority for your

local law enforcement agency, buy you do still have rights so you should

report the complaint. Make yourself a log of everything that has been

going on -photos or noise clips of the dog barking, times and dates and

also how long the barking goes on for, all copies of the correspondence

you have with the owner/neighbor etc. You will need all the evidence

that you can get your hands on in order to get your problem resolved.

Get yourself a lawyer. There are ways around this problem and if it comes

to resorting to a small claims court in order to allow your kids or yourself

to get a good night’s sleep or a nap, so be it!

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

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

• Show Queen - Evyn Barnes from Bridgeland 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

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.”

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.

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.
