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.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” ~ Albert Einstein

Flock Safety License Plate Reader Camera Installation.

After a year in planning and working towards the best possible package and integration with Precinct 4, your HOA Board has unanimously approved the installation and service of 12 Flock Safety License Plate Reader Cameras for our subdivision. Installations are expected to begin in mid February. Learn more about this great new initiative for our subdivision here: Flock Safety 

Monarch Landscape Management   is doing a great job for us and several of our entrances are looking much improved. Seasonal color plantings are in and adding cheer.  Monarch will shortly begin 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 has been established as Board member Russell Hildebrand, resident Myron Shemek. 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: 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 will be revert to  the PUD for their control and maintenance in  January 2021. 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 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 soon.

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 – see the:  Harris County Flood Control District ~ Cypress Creek Watershed website page here.
