DEED RESTRICTION VIOLATIONS
BY PMG OF HOUSTON MANAGEMENT
Trash bins need to be out of view from the street. That means you cannot
have your trash bins on the driveway, side of home or behind columns
in front of garage door. You will get a letter and if you don’t comply we
will send you to the attorney just for this trash bin violation and you will
receive the attorney charge on your account. Please move your trash bins
out of view from the street.
There have been several complaints about dogs either running loose in
the neighborhood or being walked but not on a leash. It is annoying and
sometimes frightening, when dogs run up to a homeowner, so for safety
reasons, please keep your dog on a leash. FYI-Excerpt from: The Khan Law Firm
Harris County Animal Control clearly states that “all dogs and cats must be
kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County,
Texas.” In other words:
• dogs aren’t permitted to run around at large and
• they always must be kept under direct physical control (on a leash) of
BARKING DOG PROBLEM:
• The best way is to call the Constable office to make a noise complaint. 24
dispatches number 281-376-3472.
• Call from outside when the dogs are barking.
• Request from the operator who answers the phone exactly what to ask
for on a formal noise complaint.
• Tell them you would like to meet the constable to a make a formal
• The best way is to talk to your neighbor, but if you don’t feel comfortable
call the Constable’s office.

PROTECT ONE OF YOUR MOST VALUABLE
DEVELOPING A CONSISTENT MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
By doing some simple preventative maintenance, you can extend the life
of your home and minimize costly repairs.
Painting - It is important to put a good coat of paint on your home which
may mean painting every three to five years on an average, depending
on the quality of the paint. Painting obviously improves the appearance
of your home and protects your wood or hardiplank from the elements
reducing rot. Don’t forget your ACC application along with paint color
samples, which must be processed and approved first!
Power washing - Take a walk around your property. If you see green or
black mildew on your home and driveway, you can power wash the
mildew off your gutters, home exterior, driveway and sidewalk. This small
step of maintenance can keep your property looking well maintained.
Gutters - Gutters need to be cleaned out on a regular basis. This time of year
they fill up with pine needles and leaves. If the gutters are full of leaves and
pine needles, they will not drain properly and will need to be cleaned. The
extra weight will cause the gutter nails to become loose and the gutter will sag
or fall from your home. Gutters are important as they protect the fascia boards.
Landscaping - Trees, shrubs and seasonal flowers add a great deal to
the value of your home and the community. Remember that over time
trees and shrubs can become overgrown and unsightly. Please keep
your landscaping well-trimmed and yard edged so that it enhances your
home and does not interfere with the street.
Street Parking - Please keep in mind that the streets belong to the City.
Please report all street parking to Harris County Constable Precinct 4
non-emergency line at 281-376- 3472.
If you would like to report any violations, please do so. Any questions please
contact Angela Rivera at 281-213-3184 or via email at email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting articles/information to the Cypress Mill
Messenger is the 6 th of the preceding month. Please email articles to:

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

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.”

Box Office: 713-526-2721
Hours: 10 AM-6 PM, Monday-Friday
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.

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
C) and continue baking until popovers are no longer moist in the center, about 25
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.
