COMMUNITY EVENTS

The HOA Board received suggestions for different community events. In

an effort to offer various opportunities to strengthen our community,

we’re looking to add an event, which inspires and celebrates the rich

cultures demonstrated within our community. Of course, it will center

around food so look for more information in the coming months.

COMMON VIOLATIONS OF DEED RESTRICTIONS

Raintree Village is a deed-restricted community aimed at ensuring there’s

aesthetic uniformity between residential properties and that certain

other activities are limited. If you intend to do anything to the exterior of

your home, you must complete an application for home improvements

and modifications form. This includes installing a storage shed in your

backyard.

There’s also an expectation that all residents will maintain their yard

and general appearance of the home. Common violations include

overgrown yards, mold on homes, trashcans visible from the street and

disabled vehicles. Our management company, KPM, drives through our

community at least once a week assessing compliance with the deed

restrictions. Any violations are communicated in a letter along with a

picture of the violation (date & time stamped).

It’s understandable that issuing or receiving such letters can be perceived

as a nuisance. Yet, it’s necessary so that all of us remain on the same

page of what constitutes a well-kept community (i.e. deed restrictions).

In general, the Management Company and HOA Board understand

residents are busy. Therefore, you are encouraged to contact the

management company (KPM) when a violation cannot be addressed

within stated timeframes noted in the letter.

It cannot be emphasized enough that communication is the key if you do

not understand a violation. Again, contact KPM or attend our HOA Board

meetings for additional clarification.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

You are reminded of our standing committees, which need ongoing

volunteers. The committees are as follows:

• Pool Committee (organizes Official Pool Opening Party & monitors

activities during pool season)

• Newsletter - submit articles

• Yard of the Month - select section winners

We also need volunteers for the listed community activities. Volunteering

is an opportunity to make Raintree Village a better community for all the

residents. If you’re interested in volunteering for any of the noted events

or committees, contact Walonda Hollins at hollinsw@sbcglobal.net.

DRIVING IN RAINTREE VILLAGE

Our community has grown significantly over the past year. Moreover, our

community has numerous homes along our main street, Raintree Village.

With such growth, it’s important that we’re more cognizant of our speed

while driving through Raintree Village and parking on community streets.

I’m sure everyone has noticed increased congestion along with cars

parked along various streets within our community. However, it’s

important that all of us adhere to the speed limit and encourage others

to do the same.

The following tips serve as a reminder for driving & parking in our

community:

1. Drive the speed limit - 35 miles per hour

2. Do not block your neighbor’s driveway

3. Make sure you park in the direction of traffic when parking on the street

4. Make sure you park within 18 inches from the curb

5. Remain mindful if the street is narrow, street parking impose greater

limitations for emergency vehicles

June 2021 | Raintree Village


Finally, we must be mindful that emergency vehicles are wider than

personal vehicles. Some community streets impose greater limitations for

emergency vehicles when there’s street parking. Although residents have

the right to park on the street, let’s be mindful of the aforementioned

tips.

TIPS TO REDUCE YOUR RISK OF BURGLARY

It cannot be stated enough of the importance of minimizing our

exposure to crime. Our contract deputies stated that certain vehicles

have increased exposure to theft, specifically the tires and rims. The

vehicles commonly targeted are Ford F150, Dodge Chargers and Chevy

Tahoes. Although these vehicles have rim locks, another safeguard is to

park your vehicle in the garage or close to another vehicle. Anyway, you

can either slow down or cause attention will help reduce the risk of theft.

You need to be mindful to breakdown bags and boxes of large purchases,

if possible place in trash bins or bags. Although it’s time consuming and

burdensome, it doesn’t call attention to such items in your home.

The list below simply reminds us of other things we should be mindful

each day.

1. Take the time to meet and know your neighbors. Let them know if you

notice anything unusual such as cars or people at their homes.

2. Make sure to close garage doors when at home & away.

3. Don’t keep garage door openers in the car, take them in the house

with you; a garage door opener makes it easier for someone to enter your

garage or house to remove personal property.

4. Keep car doors locked and take valuables either in your home or ensure

the items are not in plain site; remember to take down the attachment for

your Garmin too, as it alerts individuals that something valuable may be

in the car.

5. If possible, keep a car in a driveway as it gives an impression that

someone is home.

6. Keep all shrubs and plants at a level low enough that passing by

officers or other residents can see if someone is lurking in those bushes!

Shrubs should also be trimmed high enough to show “feet” of someone

hiding in them.

7. Have keys in hand before leaving the store, house or office, avoiding

standing by the car searching for them.

8. Don’t leave ladders on the side of the house or in the back yard.

Ladders provide easy access to open second floor windows and no one

will be able to see.

9. Make sure you close blinds when you are inside at night with the lights

on, potential burglars can see right inside and know who is at home.

10. Use sensor lights outside the home. It deters criminals by “spot

lighting” their efforts to enter your home.

11. Use double key locks: locks that require a key from the outside and

from the inside.

12. Repair any broken areas of your fence, reducing the access of potential

burglars or mischievous kids.

13. When on vacation, let your neighbor(s) know so they can keep an eye

out for suspicious activity. You can also inform the Harris County Deputy’s

Office serving our area. The Storefront Office is located 19818 Franz Rd.,

Katy, TX 77449, 281-647-9371. The storefront hours: 9 AM - 5 PM.

14. When on vacation, keep yards mowed and trimmed, burglars spend

a lot of time in a neighborhood looking for their next targets. Overgrown

yards are a sure sign no one’s home.

BE SURE ADDRESS IS CLEAR FROM THE STREET

County officials want to remind residents of the Ordinance 5.3 requiring

that addresses or building numbers be legible and visible from the street.

The section states the numbers must be in Arabic numerals at least four

inches in height and clearly visible. The number should be placed on,

above or at the side of the main entrance so the number is clearly visible

from the public right away. Whenever a home entrance is more than 50

feet from a public right away, a number should also be placed at the end

of a driveway or property entrance.

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.”

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:

Let me help you save time and money.

Protecting more of your world with Allstate makes your life easier.

And it can put more money in your pocket. Bundle your policies and

you can save even more. Why wait? Call me today.

KISD NEWS

KATY VIRTUAL SCHOOL RECOGNIZED FOR

OUTSTANDING DISTANCE LEARNING

At Katy Independent School District, online learning has become

an increasingly popular and effective method of education, by both

students and parents, because of the expanded learning opportunities

available. Due to its commitment to offer distance education, the

District’s Katy Virtual School (KVS) has been recognized by the Texas

Distance Learning Association (TxDLA) as the 2021 K-12 winner of the

Outstanding Commitment to Excellence and Innovation in Distance

Education recognition.

“Katy ISD was the only K-12 school district in Texas to receive such a

prestigious award,” said Susan Richards, Katy ISD Instructional Technology

e-Learning Manager. “KVS has expanded over the years to provide

secondary students quality instruction outside of normal school hours and

during the summer to support their graduation plans,” added Richards.

KVS launched in 2013 with a primary goal of offering choice and

flexibility for rigorous online courses developed and taught by Katy ISD

teachers. Over 45 Advanced Placement (AP), Katy Advanced Program and

academic level courses were available to students this year with more

courses being added each year. Just last year, over 4,000 students utilized

KVS to reach their educational goals. KVS is a different program from the

recently developed Katy Virtual Academy (KVA), which was created for

online learning during the pandemic.

DONATUTORS

Donatutors is a nonprofit tutoring organization that donates 100% of

our proceeds to charity. All of our tutors are straight-A students at Seven

Lakes High school and we offer a multitude of courses like creative

writing, computer science, biology, public speaking, ICTW writing and

many different math courses too. We charge $20 per class, but the first

one is free! For more information, check out donatutors.com or email

us at donatutors@gmail.com. What’s even cooler is that this summer

Donatutors was able to raise $1,283 which we used 70% to give to a

Houston based charity called NAMI and 30% to buy a bunch of masks

and canned food for donation. Please check us out!

JUNE IS NATIONAL CAMPING MONTH

National Camping Month in June is an excellent time to pack up your

gear and experience nature. Whether you like roughing it or prefer

to have a few modern conveniences when heading out to the trail, it’s

important to keep a few things in mind:

1. Make sure you have plenty of fresh water or a fresh water source.

2. Take a first aid kit and that it is stocked.

3. Pack waterproof matches.

4. Take non-perishable food such as granola bars, jerky, peanut butter,

chocolate bars and dried fruits, especially if you are not taking a cooler.

5. Pack fruits, vegetables and meats separately and keep chilled in a

cooler.

6. Include sunblock, even for cloudy days.

7. Rain gear, jackets and blankets are necessary for cooler weather.

Around the country, there are a variety of campsites available. The more

modern campsite includes showers and recreational facilities. These often

include water hookups and parking pads for RVs and campers and cabins to

rent as well as more primitive sites with no electrical hookups designed for

tent usage. Other parks only allow primitive camping and require everything

you pack into the park to be packed out. So, seriously consider your needs

if you are hiking into the park for your stay. These are not for the glampers.

Gather family and friends, don’t forget the s’mores supply and go

camping! Nature is calling and there are so many ways to enjoy a

weekend or even more camping. National Camping Month has been

observed since the 1970s.

8 BEST SUMMER VACATION

DESTINATIONS IN TEXAS

1. GALVESTON: If you’re looking for a classic beach getaway, then a visit

to Galveston is a must. Galveston beach is a popular summer destination

among Texans, especially those in Houston, since Galveston is only about an

hour drive from downtown. Galveston offers more than just the beach too,

however beach fun is why many people flock here. Enjoy great shopping

along the Strand, escape the heat by visiting Moody Gardens or try the

thrilling water rides at Schlitterbahn Waterpark. There are plenty of hotels,

resorts, and rental properties here that cater to the influx of summer tourism.

2. GARNER STATE PARK: Spend time camping and tubing down the Frio

River when you visit Garner State Park this summer. Garner State Park,

located in Concan, Texas, is a popular summer destination among Texans.

Although there are plenty of hiking and wildlife watching opportunities

in the park, the main draw here is truly the Frio River, where the state park

has 10 acres of river frontage. Many people kayak, tube, fish and even

snorkel here. Garner State Park is so popular during the summer that

the park hosts live music concerts on the weekend. This Texas summer

destination is definitely a family-friendly spot.

3. CORPUS CHRISTI: If you’re looking for more of a quiet beach scene than

Galveston, then Corpus Christi is more your vibe. Tourism grows here during

the summer and for good reason. Corpus Christi, or simply referred to as

“Corpus” by Texans, has beautiful Gulf Coast beaches that are perfect for

sunbathing, surfing, and windsurfing. If you’ve grown tired of the beach scene,

the town of Corpus Christi offers a number of attractions, such as the Texas

State Aquarium, the South Texas Botanical Garden, and the U.S.S Lexington.

4. SAN ANTONIO: Escape to central Texas this summer by vacationing in

San Antonio. With a unique city vibe full of history and culture, this Texas

city makes for a great summer getaway. Stroll the Riverwalk to enjoy a great

meal, explore the Alamo to learn about Texas history or even enjoy a thrilling

roller coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. San Antonio is a great summer vacation

for foodies, since the area is packed with incredible restaurants from hole-inthe-wall

Mexican joints to classy cuisine found along the Riverwalk.

5. SOUTH PADRE ISLAND: South Padre Island may be known as a spring

break destination but it shouldn’t be dismissed as a great summer travel

spot as well. This Gulf Coast town is home to the most beautiful beaches in

the Lone Star State. If you’re hoping for beach time this summer, then South

Padre Island should be your destination of choice. With miles of white sand,

plenty of shops to occupy your non-beach days, and even a Schlitterbahn

Waterpark location, South Padre Island transcends from its spring break

reputation into a popular spot during the summer months too.

6. AUSTIN: Texas’ capital city has plenty to see and do during the summer

months. Known as the Live Music Capital of the World, music lovers will

find plenty of live music acts in Austin when they visit during June, July

and August. Big headliners always hit up ATX during their summer tours,

while local acts can be seen for free anywhere from coffee shops, local

music venues and even the airport. Visit the Texas State Capitol, view the bat

colony under the South Congress Bridge at dusk, shop the electric boutiques

along South Congress Avenue and enjoy a wide variety of food truck cuisine

during your summer stay in Austin. If you’re looking to escape the heat, take

a dip in the Barton Creek Greenbelt or Barton Springs Pool.

7. NEW BRAUNFELS: New Braunfels is a Hill Country destination that has

grown into a popular summer getaway due to the Guadalupe and Comal

Rivers and the up-and-coming craft beer scene here. Beat the Texas heat

by floating in the cool waters of the Comal or Guadalupe Rivers. New

Braunfels has strong German roots, so enjoy a bratwurst and a German

beer during your summer stay here. If dancing and live music is your

thing, then don’t miss out on a visit to the historic Gruene Hall, which is

only 10 minutes outside of New Braunfels.

8. BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK: Last but not least is Big Bend National

Park. Although this park is located in west Texas, a desert environment,

don’t let the heat scare you away. Take a hike during the early mornings

or evenings to catch views of wildlife and avoid the desert heat during

the day. This area is also known for its dark night skies, so stargazing is a

must when you visit during the summer. Take a scenic drive or raft the Rio

Grande to find a cool escape in this desert oasis.

Alumni and Texas Film School Graduates. For the past year we have

been creating Katy’s newest and only Animation and Filmmaking camp,

our 3-day camps so that students will learn hands-on and in real-time,

creating Special effects, Green Screen effects, Sound effects and loads

more. Each day, students will come home with a new movie they created

themselves and on the last day we will transform a classroom into a

mock Oscars Film Festival where your child will pick their favorite film

that they made to be shown on the big screen! We are running our first

camps this summer and we would love to have some support from the

local community to get us off to a good start. Camps are held at Mirus

Academy Katy, 5561 3 rd St, Katy, TX 77493 and Each camper will receive a

free shirt and goody bag. Two Sessions will be held this summer:

ROSE THERAPEUTIC FARM AND GOAT YOGA

SUMMER CAMPS

ROSE Therapeutic Farm Summer Camps are an exciting way to light

up any young person’s summer. Our camps provide unique, hands-on

opportunities for learning, growth, and fun. Campers spend their time

here immersed in the natural world, with animals and the environment.

Each camp is loaded with creative, enriching activities meant to help

your kiddos connect with nature and learn how to enjoy “the simple life.”

This is meant to be a real farm/ranch life experience so we will get dirty!

We will also be outside all day. We have a large barn where we will do our

crafts, eat lunch and other activities but it is not air-conditioned. Please

have your kiddos dress accordingly. If they don’t like being outdoors or

getting dirty, this may not be the camp for them.

* 1 to 4 day sessions available.

*Our camps are geared toward children ages 6 – 12.

*Each camp will have 18 or less participants. We must have at least 5

campers to start each camp.

Lunch can be provided or you can send a bag lunch with your kiddos.

We have a cooler we will keep these in. We will have access to fresh iced

water all day. Of course you are welcome to send a lunch with your kiddo

if you choose.

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.
