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

Please note: We have ‚ÄúBackdoor Service‚ÄĚ which means our garbage and recycling cans should be¬†visible only on collection days and remain at our backdoor area.
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 review the guidelines below:

Texas Pride Disposal Trash and Recycling Guidelines

The deed restrictions require that all yard equipment, wood piles, storage piles, and trash containers shall be screened from public view.

Thank you for helping us keep Champion Forest tidy!

 

Pets must be controlled on leashes when not securely restrained on your property. Neither the Brill playground or Cypress Forest Park are dog parks, pets must be on a leash at all times.

This is in accordance with Harris County Leash Laws.

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 to be displayed but only for 90 days before an election and 10 days after an election. This is in accordance with the Election Code.

Monarch Landscape Management   is doing a great job for us and several of our entrances are looking much improved and seasonal color plantings are adding cheer.  Monarch will shortly begin clearing vine growth from community walls and work on several of the Champion Forest Drive entrances. When you see the Monarch workers out in our community in their trademark orange vests, give them a wave.

The Wall Committee:  Board member Russell Hildebrand, resident Myron Shemek make up this committee. The committee is working to evaluate the community walls and formulate a plan of ongoing restoration and care of our aging walls. We anticipate more needed wall restorations this year.

Wall Care: Monarch will shortly begin clearing vine growth from community walls.

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 valuable community walls and prevent avoidable damage to these valuable community assets.

Cypress Forest PUD: 

The PUD owned Raveneaux Lease Tract reverted to the PUD for their control and maintenance in January. The PUD have within their budget funds for maintenance of the land tract. Discussions are continuing with HCFCD regarding the use of the land and working towards a win-win for all parties. Read more about the land here.

The fence south of the PUD Building along Dry Gully will very shortly be taken down, relocated and replaced by new fencing.

Replacement of the generator at water plant #2, south of Cypresswood has been in the procurement stage for several months.  Construction is expected to start any day.

Work will begin on the water plant #1 and tower on Herts Rd once the works at plant #2 are completed. The inside of the tower will be rehabbed and the exterior will be cleaned and repainted.

Planning to update your property?  All exterior improvements require an ACC approval application. In 2020 we had a record 117 applications. Be assured, most applications are able to be processed virtually and quickly. Please see the:  Architectural Control page for full guidelines and application forms.

All HCFCD Community Engagement Meetings are POSTPONED¬† or virtual due to coronavirus concerns. ¬†For updates ‚Ästsee the: ¬†Harris County Flood Control District ~ Cypress¬†Creek¬†Watershed website page here.

HCFCD will begin repairs on Dry Gully, from Louetta south to Cypresswood Drive, later this year to restore and strengthen the channel.
