FOR ALL OF THE COLONIES - HELPFUL INFORMATION

HELP HORNE ELEMENTARY!

An easy way to help our school is to turn trash into

cash. Horne Elementary participates in the Box Tops

for Education program. Some of the grocery items we

use have Box Tops on them. Each Box Top is worth 10

cents for the school. You would pick up a dime on street

- so cut out the Box Tops and donate to Horne! You can

find the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like

Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper® and Kleenex®, in almost

every aisle of the store. To donate the Box Tops, simply

bring them to the reception desk at Horne or give them

to a family with children who attend Horne. Let’s collect

them all year long and give Horne a big boost to start

the new school year!

GOOD NEIGHBOR DAY

SEPTEMBER 28 TH

Neighbors are an integral part of our social lives -

whether at home or at work. Good Neighbor Day on

September 28th is an annual holiday that promotes

neighborliness and niceness towards people who

surround us.

How to Celebrate?

• Be nice to your neighbor - at home or elsewhere.

• If you don’t know your neighbors well, maybe today

is your chance to go up to them and strike up a

conversation.

• Bake some goodies and share them with your

neighbors. Bring them to work for your work neighbors.

• Invite your neighbors to your home for a meal.

Did You Know…

…that the word neighbor comes from the Old English

word neahgebur, where neah means near and gebur

means inhabitant?

On September 28th, National Good Neighbor Day is

celebrated. This annual holiday was first proclaimed

by President Jimmy Carter in 1978. Mrs. Becky Mattson

from Lakeside, Montana came up with the idea of a

national holiday recognizing the importance of good

neighbors in 1971. In 1978, U.S. President Jimmy Carter

announced the creation of a national day aimed at

raising public awareness that good neighbors help

achieve human understanding and build strong,

thriving communities. Since then, National Good

Neighbor Day has been acknowledged by various

levels of government and is celebrated every year. The

holiday was originally celebrated on the fourth Sunday

in September, but in 2003 its date was changed to

September 28th. On this day, Nextdoor.com, a social

network for neighborhoods, announces the recipients

of Nextdoor’s Good Neighbor Award. Everyone can

nominate a neighbor or a group of neighbors by

writing a short story about what they have done to

help their local community and make it a better place.

National Good Neighbor Day is the perfect occasion to

honor the people who make significant contributions

to creating safer neighborhoods and stronger

communities across the United States.

BRADFORD COLONY 1 & 2

(BC1&2) NEWS FROM THE BOARD

HOME IMPROVEMENTS - ACC REQUESTS: Please note that all exterior

home improvements (including replacing fences) must be approved by the

Board prior to beginning the work. The Architectural Review Request form

can be downloaded in TownSq. Please complete the form and submit it to our

manager. Just creating a message is not sufficient to meet the requirement.

We need to have a completed form, which provides detail information on

the improvement(s) for Committee to review and store as official record. You

will be notified of the decision in less than 30 days and most cases it takes

a lot shorter time than that if compete information is provided in the initial

request, such as color sample, detail location.

OUR OFFICIAL ONLINE COMMMUNICATION WEBSITE: TownSq is our

official site https://app.townsq.io/associa/. You can sign up using you your

account number with PMG, our management company. If you need to get it,

please call them and they can provide that to you or it will be on your 2021

assessment invoice. This is the best way to check your account balance, ask

questions regarding your balance, deed violations, ACC request status etc…

You will also find our by-laws and deed restrictions document there.

SAVING ENERGY COST: With continuous almost triple digit temperatures in

August and even September, we can all implement some simple ways to save

on energy cost. Several ways to lower your energy cost include: install motion

light sensor and dimmer to conserve light energy when you don’t need it;

• unplug appliances when you are not using it, appliances drained energy

even when they are turned off. • Use less heat in lowering base temperature

of water heater during summer months; • check HVAC filters every month

and change/clean them as needed; • wash clothes with cold or warm water

instead of hot; • turn off heated drying cycle on your dish washer, this lower

energy use and heat up the house less; • consider a programmable thermostat

so that you don’t have to keep changing and resetting the a/c temperature; •

and check caulking and weather stripping to doors and windows.

HAPPY LABOR DAY! Now that school has started, please be cognizant of our

PM by phone, email or live chat from the www.inframarkims.com website.

Customer Care can answer general questions, make notations on your

Modifications or Accounting.

ANNUAL HOA DUES: Thank you to all who have paid your HOA dues! If HOA

dues have not been paid yet, expect a certified letter with penalties. In order

to avoid additional costs and fees, there are several options to make HOA

payments. As of February 1 st , unpaid annual dues are considered delinquent

and subject to late fees and penalties. Our management company has new

policies and procedures in place to collect on past due HOA assessments.

If these have not been paid yet, please make every effort to pay or make a

payment arrangement. The Board worked diligently to maintain our HOA

dues although the neighborhood incurred additional expenses caused by

the Artic Blast. There are several payment options available.

CHARLESTOWN COLONY PARK: PLEASE CONTACT THE BOARD OR

INFRAMARK IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION. Our community park is

enjoyed by many of the residents and their family members! Especially, now

as we are starting to turn the COVID 19 corner. It has bounced back since

the days of Hurricane Harvey! Let’s keep it looking amazing! There have been

reports of trash and debris in the park where the trashcans were overflowing

which is an eye sore for the residents living around the park. Please remember

to pick up after ourselves. If you are using the park’s trash can as a personal

trash bin, please stop it and use your own trash cans.

PARKED CARS ON STREETS CLOSE STOP SIGNS, COMMERCIAL

VEHICLES & TRAILERS: We are still seeing cars parked on the street close

to stop signs which becomes very dangerous for drivers to maneuver around

oncoming traffic. Please park cars safely on the streets to avoid accidents. We

love our residents and do not want to see anyone injured.

• There are several community parking areas around the park and patio homes

in the front of our subdivision. Please do not park there longer necessary.

Please be cognizant of our neighbors. If you haven’t seen tow signs already,

these will be posted soon. Cars parked in Charlestown Colony community

parking spots longer than necessary will be towed at the owner’s expense.

• It is a violation of our deed restrictions to park commercial vehicles, trailers,

etc. in public view for an excessive amount of time. The number of hours

these vehicles can be parked on the street is limited. Please refer to our deed

restrictions. Harris County will be conducting a traffic study in our area to

determine where street tow signs will be posted.

OUR FURRY FAMILY MEMBERS: There have been several complaints about

dogs not being on a leash when being walked and pet owners not picking up

after their animal does their “business.” Please be mindful and respectful of

our neighbors and common areas such as the park and pick up after your pets.

There continues to be a noticeable number of lost and found pets posted on

the Nextdoor Ap. Please secure the furry family members by replacing broken

fencing or other measures of security for our loving pets.

HOME RENOVATION PROJECTS: It has been 4 years since Harvey devastated

Houston and for those who are still working on repairs, please be conscious of

our deed restrictions. The Architectural Review form is required to complete

exterior projects such as replacing fences, exterior painting and pretty much

any other exterior project attached to the home that can be viewed from the

street. The Architectural form can be obtained from Inframark. We have all

endured a lot due to the blast and Hurricane Harvey and have probably filled

out enough forms over the last few arctic months to last a lifetime. However,

this form is just another step in the renovation process and keeping the

project on track. Our deed restrictions have these forms in place to maintain

the appearance of Charlestown Colony. If exterior projects are completed

without consent, the homeowner could be subject to make changes such as

e-painting the house all over again which is costly and time consuming. Most

of the Architectural Review forms can be processed within 10 business days,

but it could take up to 30 days. If it is urgent, please indicate that on the form

and include a phone number. Inframark may be able to offer a verbal, “yes” to

get the project started while the form is being processed. https://inframarkims.

DEBRIS REMOVAL & DEED RESTRICTION VIOLATIONS: It is the

homeowner’s responsibility to remove trash and debris from the front of their

home. If more time is needed for repairs, the HOA Board and management

company will review these on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to the

management company.

We’d like to wish all our returning students a wonderful 2022 school year!

Make it a September to remember! We are currently embark on the last few

months of 2021 and this year is the 20 th anniversary of 9/11. May we honor the

memories of those lost, reflect on the unfathomable wound to our humanity,

grieve for the communities lost and embrace those who survived. May we

honor those who came to the rescue when all hope was lost and the families

left behind who had to rebuild. Gone but not forgotten.

CONGRATULATIONS YARD OF THE MONTH WINNER: Congratulations

to our September winner of the Yard of the Month! THANK YOU for keeping

your yard and our community beautiful! Yard of the Month is always and only

announced on TownSquare for privacy reasons.

MONTHLY MEETINGS: Our monthly HOA meetings are held virtually via

ZOOM on the 2 nd Tuesday of every month at 7 PM. Details are always and only

shared on TownSquare website/app. Signs are also placed at the entrance/

exit of our neighborhood as well as a reminder on Nextdoor.com. There is

COMMUNICATION: If you SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING. Please call our

local Deputies nonemergency number if you see suspicious activity, theft, a

vehicle parked for an extended period of time or anything that does seem

right. There is no such thing as a nuisance call. Please see page 2 for all

important community numbers.

• Communication is “sending, giving or exchanging information and ideas.

“Community” and “communication” have the same root word, which means

a coming together. So it makes sense that good communication can lead to

communities.

• Please RESPOND to violations if you think they are being mishandled / or if

more time is needed.

• Have you noticed all the new neighbors that have joined Concord Colony?!

One easy way to make friends and build a community is by introducing

yourself to new neighbors that have moved in or that you see on your walk.

* Did you know our community is on FB, Nextdoor and TownSquare? FB-

Concord Colony Community, on Nextdoor they will want you to verify

your address and to have a profile on TownSqaure you should contact

management (page 2).

DID YOU KNOW? There have been more neighbors taking notice of suspicious

activity and calling the Deputies office (see page 2). We are ever grateful to

those who keep an eye out for their fellow neighbors and neighborhood. IF

YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING.

• Making sure your home is visible at night is a VERY EASY WAY to avoid

unwanted “visitors.” Keeping your front porch light, garage light, flood lights

and back yard well lit is the best deterrent.

• Switching to LED light bulbs that use much less energy and can keep your

electric bill down.

• Using timers and apps from your phone can also help cut costs on your

electric bill.

• Making sure your home isn’t inviting to strangers is key. LOCK YOUR DOORS,

TURN OUTDOOR LIGHTS ON, TRIM YOUR HEDGES AND KEEP WINDOWS

VISIBLE FROM THE STREET, CLOSE YOUR GATE, LOCK YOUR CAR. All these little

things can ad up to a safer home and neighborhood.

• Thank you for looking out for your neighbors and our neighborhood - it

takes a village.
