PURPOSE OF HUNTER’S PARK

COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

Hunter’s Park Community Association handles the

financial and legal affairs of the subdivision. Each lot

owner is required to pay an annual maintenance fee

which is used to pay street lights; pay taxes on and

maintain the common areas, such as the swimming

pools, tennis courts, etc.; pay for security; and pay legal

expenses incurred to enforce the deed restrictions.

The Board meets the 2nd Thursday of every

month at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the

community building. Residents are welcome to attend.

Anyone wishing to place an item on the agenda

should call the HPCA office in advance.

The Annual Meeting of Members is held on the

4th Thursday of January.

Members hold three year staggered terms and are

elected. The election process is as follows:

1) Mail in ballots will be mailed out with the Annual

Maintenance fee statements.

2) Voting in person will begin on the 1st Monday

after the Annual Meeting ending on the following

Saturday at 7pm.

DEED RESTRICTIONS

Deed restrictions are strictly enforced by Hunter’s Park

Community Association. Copies of the restrictions

are available on our website at www.bearcreeknetwork.org.

Complaint forms are included in every

Bear Creek Newsletter for your convenience. The

association’s office verifies complaints and writes

letters to violators. HPCA will initiate legal action

when warranted, to enforce the deed restrictions.

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL

You must submit any plans for improvements or

modifications of your home to the Hunter’s Park

Community Association Office. Your plans will be

checked to insure that they comply with the deed

restrictions. This includes re-roofing, playforts (8

ft. height limit), temporary storage buildings, etc.

Please call the office at 281 463-1216 if you need

any additional help or assistance.

SECURITY

Hunter’s Park Community Association provides

additional security currently through a contract

with Commissioners Court for four Harris County

Constables. HPCA also hires off-duty deputies on

an as-needed basis for additional coverage.

Please call the Constable’s Office at 281 463-6666

to report any suspicious person, activity or for vacation

watch. There is a voluntary $2.00 security

contribution on the M.U.D. #6 water bill that goes to

each homeowner. The voluntary contributions can

only be used to pay for security. This contribution

enables HPCA to provide more coverage without

raising maintenance fees.

BARKING DOGS

If you have a problem with a neighbor’s dog constantly barking, you

should first contact the pet owner and make them aware of the problem.

In the event that doesn’t work, you should then contact the Constables

at 281-463-6666 to file a complaint.

LOOSE OR LOST PETS & DOG BITES

Contact Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191 or 3194.

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.”

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.

Please remember that cats fall under the same laws as dogs and must

be licensed and kept restrained when not on the premises of the owner.

We’ve been told that spreading moth balls in flower beds might keep

cats away.

To make a complaint or report an animal that is not properly restrained

please contact:

STREET LIGHTS OUT?

Contact Centerpoint Energy at 713-207-2222. You will need to give the

address where the pole is located and provide the stenciled number on

the front of the pole. You may also report the outage on the website at:

www.centerpointenergy.com/outage.

PET HOTLINE NEWS

A very important thing you can do is have a collar with some form of ID

and your phone number on it. Pet stores have special ID’s for your pets.

Many pet owners are now “chipping” the pets. If found and taken to a vet

they can scan chip and find the owner. If your pet has a rabies tag, the vet

has your name and #. The first thing I ask a caller is “does the pet have ID

on it.” If it does, I will help contact the # on the ID and get the pet to it’s

owner ASAP. Or the owner can pick up their lost pet. Having an ID on a

pet makes life easier for all. Marie Nugent - 281-859-1104

KATY ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES CALL

FOR A MAY 2021 SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved to hold a general election in

May 2021 for a three-year term in Positions 6 and 7.

• Early Voting by Personal Appearance: Mon, April 19 to Tues, April 27, 2021

• Election Day: Saturday, May 1, 2021

Currently, Position 6 is being held by Susan Gesoff and Position 7 is held

of the school district and are the main advising group that oversees and

shapes policies. Individuals serving as Board members are not employees

of Katy ISD, yet they dedicate countless hours to lead an A+ school district.

KATY VIRTUAL SCHOOL REGISTRATION OPEN

For students, virtual classes are an excellent way to acquire graduation credits

and/or expand their learning opportunities. Last year, over 4,000 students

utilized the Katy Virtual School (KVS) program offered by the Katy Independent

School District. KVS launched in 2013 with a primary goal of expanding the

learning opportunities for students by offering choice and flexibility for rigorous

online courses developed and taught by Katy ISD teachers. KVS has begun

online registration for Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.

“KVS provides online learning that offers a flexible, online experience, which

helps students achieve their educational goals,” said Susan Richards, Katy ISD

Instructional Technology e-Learning Manager. “The virtual model of e-learning

is in high demand and delivers quality instruction to Katy ISD students, outside

of normal school hours, to support student graduation plans. KVS is different

from the current Katy Virtual Academy (KVA), which is the online learning

model implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Richards.

KVS will offer a wide range of courses from Creative Writing, AP Art

History, English III, World Geography, Economics, Psychology and more.

There are over 30 Advanced Placement (AP), Katy Advanced Program

(KAP) and academic level courses available to students with additional

opportunities being added each year. The cost per course is $200 per

semester. KVS is an approved College Board online provider for Advanced

Placement (AP) courses and by the NCAA for student initial eligibility.

For more information, students can talk with their campus counselor for

additional information, email KVS at katyvirtualschool@katyisd.org or

visit the Katy ISD Virtual School website.

Please note: Katy Virtual School and Katy Virtual Academy are two

separate programs. Katy Virtual School is a supplemental program to

help entering or present high school students take courses in advance.

EIGHTEEN KATY ISD SCHOOLS EARN

TEXAS HONOR ROLL DISTINCTION

Katy Independent School District is focused on closing the achievement

gap and helping all its students reach academic success. To recognize

those efforts, 18 Katy ISD schools now proudly display the distinction of

being a Texas Honor Roll School by the Educational Results Partnership

(ERP).

After an extensive analysis of student data of every public school in

Texas, these campuses demonstrated clear leadership in motivating

and achieving academic success for its students at their grade-level

and beyond. Sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education

Excellence (CBEE), the ERP Honor Roll is the only school recognition

program in the state that uses student achievement outcome data,

making it a valuable resource for all schools to identify successful peers

and learn about best practices that improve student success.

The 2019-20 Texas Honor Roll includes:

Elementary: Alexander, Holland, Kilpatrick, Pattison, Randolph, Shafer,

Stanley, Wilson,

Wolman

YOUR NEIGHBORS LOVE US!

Trust Us With Your Home Comfort!

Junior High: Beckendorff, Katy, Memorial Parkway, McMeans, Seven

Lakes, Tays, WoodCreek

High School: Tompkins, Seven Lakes

For high schools, the ERP Texas Honor Roll recognition includes measures

of college readiness. This year, the program recognized 943 higherperforming

schools across the state.
