    STATE LAW MAKES SUGAR LAND STREETS LESS SAFE

    Sugar Land City Council recently repealed a new distracted-driving ordinance after the Texas Legislature approved a less restrictive law that preempts local control.

    Sugar Land’s law was approved in February and prohibited the use of portable electronic devices while driving a vehicle in Sugar Land unless the device was in hands-free mode or being used for an emergency. The law included portable electronic devices including mobile phones, personal digital assistants, MP3s or other hand-held music players, electronic reading devices, laptop computers, pagers, electronic game devices and more.

    The new state law preempts all local distracted-driving ordinances and only prohibits texting while driving. The state’s law is difficult to enforce according to the Sugar Land Police Department.

    Sugar Land’s distracted driving ordinance was originally enacted following an extensive education campaign and public review process. The public was presented with the following three options and chose to restricted the use of portable electronic devices while operating a vehicle.

    With the state’s requirement for a less restrictive law, Sugar Land police will focus on continued public education to encourage motorists to avoid the use of electronic devices while driving.

    ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL BOARD APPROVAL

    As much as we enjoy seeing well-maintained homes and improvements being made in our community, we want to remind you of the necessity of obtaining approval from the Architectural Control Board.

    Guidelines are put into place in order to maintain consistency throughout the neighborhood which enhances the overall appearance of residences and helps retain the market value of our homes. As a rule, any work outside your residence that alters its appearance in any way requires prior ACC approval.

  • Request for Home Improvement Approval

    In general, some of the projects you would need approval for would include any exterior remodeling or additions, fences, pools, roofs, change of house color, patio additions, etc. To be absolutely sure you are meeting the guidelines of Summerfield , please contact Terri Salter, MASC Austin Properties, Inc., at 713-776-1771, before beginning any projects. She will be happy to clarify the necessary steps you should take.



    THINGS TO KNOW

    WATER HOSES - It has been observed that numerous residents are leaving their water hoses on their lawns when they are not in use. We wish to remind you that water hoses, just like garbage cans, should be stored out of sight when not actually being used. It certainly helps the looks of our neighborhood when we keep everything neat and tidy.


    FIREWORKS

    Please remember that, although fireworks are not illegal outside the city limits, it is extremely important that you practice safety measures when using fireworks. Also, please be considerate of your neighbors. Don’t use fireworks late at night or early in the morning. Please make sure you clean up all debris when you finish. The safest measure of all, of course is to attend a public fireworks display and enjoy all the thrills without the danger! However you choose to celebrate, always keep safety first on your list.


    REMINDER:

    For those homeowners who need driveway or sidewalk repair, we wish to remind you that these repairs are not the responsibility of the M.U.D. District. It is the responsibility of the homeowner.

    We would like to recommend that you contact Concrete Raising Corporation at 713-991-1777 or log onto www.crc-houston.com.
