PROTECT ONE OF YOUR MOST VALUABLE

INVESTMENTS BY 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 angela.rivera@associa.us.

DATES TO REMEMBER

Board Meetings: 4 th Wednesday of every month at 6 PM.

(exception of Annual Meeting in April at 7 PM)

November and December - no meetings

POLITE PARKING

Several complaints have been received about visitors leaving their

vehicles parked for extended periods of time. Please ask your visitors to

park in your driveway or at least in front of your property, leaving your

neighbors room for their visitors to park or to pass through with their

vehicles.

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.

4

LEASH LAWS

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

their owner

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

complaint.

• The best way is to talk to your neighbor, but if you don’t feel comfortable

call the Constable’s office.

ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW PROCESS

The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) as well other

legally binding documents, are provided to homeowners prior to

closing on a house. Please read the guidelines before submitting your

Architectural Control Committee application. You can receive a copy

online on TownSq www.cypressmillhoa.com under documents or you

can call your community manager Angela at 281-213-3184 and/or email

angela.rivera@associa.us to request a form. All application can take up

to 30 business day before an approval or denial is correspondent to a

homeowner.

RESIDENTS OF CYPRESS MILL:

Having your lawn cut either by yourself or a hired landscaper please don’t

put out your grass clippings out on the sidewalk until trash days, Monday

or Thursdays. We are getting complaints of homeowners putting out

grass clippings before trash days. We thank you for your understanding

and corporation.

SWEEPING OR BLOWING DEBRIS INTO STORM

DRAINS

According to Herman L. Sanders of the Harris County Watershed

Protection Group, “Sweeping grass, leaves, grass clippings, yard waste,

etc., into a storm drain is cited as a civil solid-waste violation of State

Municipal Solid Waste rules, Chapter 330.15 (a)(1). Civil penalties are $50

to $25,000 per day per violation. Criminal penalties, if pursued, are $500

to $100,000 per day per violation.” Please keep the front of the driveway

and curbs cleaned to keep debris from going into the street gutters.

NOTICE: FITNESS ROOM USAGE

No one under 18 years of age is allowed in the fitness room at any time.

If you are found in the fitness room your access card will be deactivated

and you will have to come in front of the Board of Directors to discuss

reactivating card. Please comply with the rules.

SOLICITATION IS AGAINST

OUR DEED RESTRICTION:

Please do not purchase from solicitors and ask them to leave our

neighborhood. Although it is difficult to enforce this violation we

can work together to keep this activity at a minimum. Please contact

Constable Mark Herman dispatch at 281-376-3472 if any harassment

issues or suspicious behavior arises.

Ingredients

4 cups shredded cabbage*

1 cup shredded carrots (2 medium)*

¼ cup thinly sliced green onions (2)

½ cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground white pepper

6 purchased or homemade corn muffins

¼ cup butter, melted

14 ounces frozen cooked, breaded chicken breast fillets,

prepared according to package directions

1 15.5-22 ounce can barbecue beans

1 ½ cups chopped green, yellow, and/or red tomatoes (2

large)

¾ cup bottled ranch salad dressing

* If desired, substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with

carrot (coleslaw mix) for cabbage and carrots.

Directions

Step 1: For slaw, in a large bowl combine cabbage, carrots,

and green onions; toss to mix. In a small bowl stir together

mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add dressing

to cabbage mixture, tossing to combine. Cover and chill for 2

hours, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Cut corn muffins into

Step 3: Transfer slaw mixture to an 8- to 10-cup clear glass bowl.

Cut chicken into strips. Arrange chicken strips evenly over slaw.

Spoon beans over chicken pieces, spreading evenly. Sprinkle
