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 

Please note the motorized vehicles are NOT permitted in the Park or in the Flood Control Channels and dogs must be on a leash at all times.

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

 

2021 HOA Annual Assessments are overdue.

Late fees and interest have begun to accrue according to our collection policy. Delinquency and overdue fee statements are in the mail now and cases will be turned over to our attorneys in June.

In order to avoid unnecessary costs to yourself and our community, your assessments must be paid immediately. If your circumstances make full payment at this time impossible, we are able to offer you a payment plan, as permitted by law. Please contact PMG, our management company to set up a payment plan and avoid further costs and legal complications.

 

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.

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

Unlicensed motorized vehicles are not permitted on roadways.

 

Our Waste Collection Service is contracted by our PUD and serviced by Texas Pride Disposal. Collection days are Tuesdays and Fridays.

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

Please review the guidelines below:

Texas Pride Disposal Trash and Recycling Guidelines

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

Thank you for helping us keep Champion Forest tidy!

 

Champion Forest Deed Restrictions prohibit the placement of ANY signs in our yards, in public view, with the exception of ONE Realtor sign no larger than 5ftsq while a property is listed for sale or lease.

Based on Texas Law, only flags of United States, Texas and military branch of service are permitted.  See the Texas Property Code.

 


Ongoing work:

What management pays attention to gets better.

 

Flock Safety Automated License Plate Reader Camera Installation

The Flock Safety Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) Camera system installation for our subdivision is now complete. The cameras are active and recording data to be used by law enforcement to help solve crimes. Please see the Homeowners Presentation for more details: 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:  Repairs of irrigation continue along with some new installations. Freeze damage plantings that have failed to regenerate will soon be replaced. Tree trimming and canopy raising continues.  When you see the Monarch workers out in our community in their trademark orange vests, please give them a wave.

The Wall Committee:  Plans are being made for some minor repairs on Champion Forest Drive wall locations.

Wall Care: Now is a great time to prevent foliage from growing against 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. Be aware; owners are responsible for their and their guests’ and tenants’ damage to the Association’s common property.

Architectural Control Committee:

Planning to update your property?  All exterior improvements require an ACC approval application. 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.

 


 

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 to the former Raveneaux Club, has reverted to the PUD for its control and maintenance. The PUD has within its budget funds for maintenance of the land tract. Discussions are continuing with a golf course developer and HCFCD regarding the use of the land and working towards a win-win for all parties. Read more about the land here.

Construction of the new elevated backup generator and platform at water plant #2, south of Cypresswood, is almost complete. This generator will assist in securing our district’s water supply in emergency situations.

Work will begin on water plant #1 and water tower on Herts Rd after the work at plant #2 is completed. The inside of the tower will be restored, and the exterior will be cleaned and repainted

HCFCD:
