Important reminders:

Champion Forest Deed Restrictions prohibit the placement of signs in our yards, in public view, with the exception of ONE Realtor sign while a property is listed for sale or lease.

The Texas Property Code permits Political Signs according to law. In Champion Forest, this means ONE sign per candidate and/or ballot item per homeowner property. They are limited in size and must be ground-mounted and, may only be displayed 90 days before an election and for up to 10 days after an election. This is in accordance with the Texas Property Code.

 


Pets must be controlled on leashes when not securely restrained on your property. This is in accordance with Harris County Leash Laws

 

Traffic Safety:  Do not place ANY objects in public roadways. Bulk trash and yard waste, basketball hoops, the little neon “kid alert” signs or warning cones need to be at the end of your driveway or in your yard, not in the street.
 

On advisement of Precinct 4: Any objects placed in a roadway are a violation and considered a traffic hazard.

 

Golf Cart Laws on Texas Roadways

Golf Carts must display a Golf Cart license plate when operated on roads authorized by the city or county.

 

Our Waste Collection Service is contracted by our PUD and serviced by Texas Pride Disposal.

Collection days: Tuesdays and Fridays

We have “Backdoor Service” which means our garbage and recycling cans should be visible ONLY on collection days and remain at our backdoor/gate area.

Yard and Bulk waste should be placed at the curb (not on the street) no earlier than the evening before collection.

If you use a lawn care service, ensure that they do not leave your yard waste at the curb unless it will be collected that same day. Please also ensure that waste is not blown into the street where it can block street drainage. The only thing that should enter street drains is water.

Please review the guidelines below:

Texas Pride Disposal Trash and Recycling Guidelines

 
*NOTE if trash is placed in recycling cans it will not be collected. Recycling cans must be used for recyclables only. *
 

The deed restrictions require that all yard equipment, woodpiles, storage piles, and trash containers shall be screened from public view. No lot shall be used for the storage of materials for more than normal household use.

Thank you for keeping Champion Forest tidy!

 

Ongoing work:

Architectural Control Committee:

ALL exterior improvements require ACC approval before any work is begun.

An application MUST BE formally submitted to the Committee AND approved BEFORE any work is begun.

Be assured, most applications are able to be processed virtually and quickly and the committee will work with you if amendments to your application are needed. Please see the:  Architectural Control page for full guidelines and application forms.

 

Flock Safety Automated License Plate Reader Cameras The Flock Safety Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) Camera system is active and recording data to be used by law enforcement to help prevent and solve crimes. See:  Flock Safety & Champion Forest Homeowners Presentation 

 

If you witness or are the victim of a crime, please call on law enforcement immediately and give them all the information you have. Remind them to check the Flock Safety camera data and ask that they give you a follow-up report in a timely manner.

 

Monarch Landscape Management: Work continues this month on major tree trimming, and the redesign and replanting of several entrance beds. We are working towards revitalizing all of the Champion Forest (1-10) entrances and garden beds, so if your nearest garden bed is still depleted, please know that this is being addressed.

The Wall Committee: Section 9 wall repairs have been completed at Knightrider Drive. Further repairs will be made on the Section 9 walls before moving on to Section 10. Residents are asked to remove foliage from the wall.

Wall inspections will continue this month (Section 10) with an ongoing assessment of the inside of the wall as well as the community-facing side. We are prioritizing repairs and reviewing repair proposals (several of which have already been approved and are now awaiting brick supplies). If you live along the wall, please be aware that we will do our best to contact you before we make any visit.

Wall Care: We need every resident who has the direct benefit of our brick walls to care for the walls by keeping their trees and foliage from growing against and over the walls. These practices will help us protect and prolong the life of our walls and prevent avoidable damage to these valuable community assets. Be aware; owners are responsible for their and their guests’ and tenants’ damage to the Association’s common property.

 


In the neighborhood:

Cypress Forest PUD: For your safety and enjoyment please read the rules that govern the use of Cypress Forest Public Utility District’s park properties and facilities by members of the public – Cypress Forest Park and Facilities Rules 

Motorized vehicles are not permitted in the PUD park.

All the PUD-owned land, previously leased with restrictions to the former country club (Agreements 2008 & 2011), has reverted to the PUD for its control and preservation. The PUD has within its budget funds for the maintenance of the land tract/park. Discussions are continuing regarding the use of the land and working towards a win-win for all parties. Read more about the land here.

Work has begun at water plant #1 on Herts Rd where the inside of the tower will be restored, and the exterior will be cleaned and repainted. The work will take approximately six months and is being done by DIXIE Painting & Sandblasting.
