    LAWN MAINTENANCE

    We urge you to stay on top of yard maintenance and always be prepared for monthly inspections of lawns and home exteriors. Numerous deed restriction violations have been observed in recent inspections. Should you receive a deed restriction violation notice, we stress the importance of your resolving the issue as soon as possible.

    After several weeks of plentiful rain, which created lush green lawns and rapidly growing grass and plants, we are not into “normal” summer weather. This translates into perhaps less frequent mowing, but it is not a time to rest on our laurels! With the heat and dry weather comes the need to water, which we encourage you to do conservatively. Try to always be prepared for inspections. When inspections are made, some of the areas that are noted include:

  • Mowing of grass;
  • Edging around sidewalks, driveways, flowerbeds, etc.;
  • Trimming of hedges and trees (make sure trees over streets and sidewalks are trimmed to the proper height);
  • Cleanup of debris from streets, sidewalks and driveways.

    When we all take pride in our surroundings, it reflects positively on our subdivision and helps maintain the value of our homes.

    GARAGE SALE OCTOBER 3RD

    Start planning now for our Fall Cleanup!. Summerfield’s next garage sale is scheduled for Saturday, October 3rd, with a rain date of Saturday, October 10th.

    It is time to start exploring those closets, attics, garages, storage sheds, etc., and sorting through all those outgrown clothes and toys, unwanted tools, books, gadgets, etc. This is a great opportunity to do some cleaning and make some spare change. Our residents seem to have really enjoyed our annual sales in the past and there is normally a great deal of participation. Have your items ready to put out on your driveway at 8:00 a.m., Saturday, October 3rd. Happy selling!



    NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

    National Night Out will be observed on Tuesday, October 6th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the park.

    James Coney Island, chips and drinks, will be served as well as snow cones by The Ice Barn. There will be a moonwalk and DJ for entertainment.

    National Night Out is a yearly event which encourages an increased awareness of crime prevention. It is a great time to visit with your neighbors and make new acquaintances.

    Let’s all show our support of the fight against crime and have a good time as well.

    Make plans to join us on October 6th!

    HEALTHY YARDS

    Well we had a great spring with all the rain fall! Our yards were going faster than we could mow or wait for them to dry out. We are not receiving much rain fall now but we are still in the growing season. Here are a few tips to keep you and your yard healthy.

  • Do yard work early morning or late evening.
  • Water early morning, 4 am to 6 am for 8 to 12 minutes per section.
  • Only water when your yard is showing "stress" (dry but not burned).
  • When mowing, make sure your lawnmower blades are sharp. This will help protect the grass from disease.

    EXPANSION OF HIGHWAY 6 IN SUGAR LAND

    Sugar Land City Council approved a $500,000 design contract with Brown & Gay Engineering for the expansion of State Highway 6 from Brooks Street to Lexington Boulevard.

    The completed corridor will include four lanes in each direction. The approved contract includes roadway design; drainage improvements; utility relocation; traffic signal, signage and pavement markings; landscaping; a cost estimate for construction; and a detailed construction schedule. Completion of the design is expected next year.

    “State Highway 6 is a major arterial road for Sugar Land and provides connectivity throughout Fort Bend County,” said City Engineer Chris Steubing. “The project is intended to address operational and geometric deficiencies and relieve traffic congestion along the corridor.”

    The current configuration of the roadway does not adequately support the existing or future traffic volumes. As additional activity centers are developed in Sugar Land (i.e., festival site, Smart Financial Centre, etc.) more motorists will travel through the area.

    Providing connectivity between attractions such as Sugar Land Town Square, Constellation Field and others is important as Sugar Land continues to emerge as a destination location for tourists. The project will help support Sugar Land’s expanding sales tax base and improve mobility for residents.

    The projected construction and right-of-way cost are estimated at $7.6 million. The City has applied for federal funding that will cover 80 percent of the project’s cost. The remaining 20 percent would come from local funding, with 50 percent of that funding earmarked in Fort Bend County’s 2013 mobility bond package.



    NO PARKING ZONES

    We ask all residents once again to please observe the No Parking Zones throughout Summerfield. This is especially important during school hours.

    Remember, you are not allowed to park on the street and walk to school. Vehicles parked in No Parking Zones will be ticketed and possibly towed away. We also remind all drivers to observe the speed zones, especially near the schools. Pay special attention to children walking to and from school or riding bikes. Always obey the crossing guards.



    REMINDER:

    Please do not put trash out before 6:00 p.m. the night before the scheduled pickup day. Garbage cans must be stored out of public view except for pick up days. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR EMPTY CANS ON THE CURB, STREET OR LAWN AFTER YOUR TRASH HAS BEEN PICKED UP.



    PET OWNER RESPONSIBILITIES

    Another recurring problem we seem to have is the failure of pet owners to take responsibility for their pets. This topic has been addressed several times in the past, but some residents seem to think they are exempt from following the rules.

    The State of Texas and Fort Bend County has a leash law. When outside a private property, pets are required to be on a leash. This not only protects other residents, but it protects your pets as well. Also, pet owners are responsible for removing any pet waste from others’ property. When pet poops, you scoop!

    Showing respect for others goes a long way toward nurturing healthy relationships with your neighbors!
