PLEASE TAKE NOTICE
The dumpster at the rear of our parking lot on Cimarron parkway is not for use by residents who want to get rid of their garbage or debris. This dumpster is for Association use only.

WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?
Yes, it’s time to start planning for our annual Fall event. It will depend on how many volunteers sign up to help before we can decide what we’re going to do. The haunted house takes several days to set up and at least a dozen people to act as the monsters, ghosts, etc. on the night of the event. For the past several

I am currently on the MPCA Board and have been involved for several years, having served as Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. I have lived in the Katy area for 33 years and Memorial Parkway for 12 years. My goals have not changed, which is to keep our neighborhood safe for our families, and our homes well kept. This is and will continue to be, important to me personally. It is a great feeling to know that we can live in a nice, well-kept neighborhood even though our homes are 30 to 40 years old. And we all can work toward that goal and be proud of Memorial Parkway. I ask you to vote in our election and vote for me. Thanks. CHARLES HERRING I have lived in Memorial Parkway for 25 years and have been involved with the homeowners association for 9 years while serving on the Board for the past 6 years. Prior to this, I served with my wife, Susan, on the Security Committee for many years. Keeping property values high and our neighborhood safe are my foremost priority. As an auditor for 32 years, I understand the value of money and the proper/ethical use of it. I enjoy visiting with my neighbors at the Board and committee meetings, listening to their concerns while helping them ﬁnd an equable solution. My children grew up in this neighborhood and I will strive to do my best to keep it a good and safe neighborhood. Your vote would be appreciated.

However, the Transportation Code of Texas, Title 6, Chapter 545, Section 302, states that .a vehicle cannot park closer than 15 feet to a fire hydrant. .a vehicle cannot park closer than 20 feet to an intersection. .a vehicle cannot park closer than 30 feet to a stop sign. The Board has asked our Constables to take the appropriate action whenever there is a violation of the Transportation Code. The parking of vehicles on the street has become a big problem in our neighborhood. School buses can’t pull close to the curb to pick up and let off students. In some cases, emergency vehicles may not be able to reach their destination if traffic flow is inhibited, especially when two cars are parked directly across from each other. Plus, vehicles parked on the street are those that are vandalized the most. Some of the worst areas are the cul-de-sacs where it’s hard enough to back out of a driveway or navigate the circle even when there aren’t any vehicles parked on the street. Be considerate of your neighbors and don’t park your vehicle in front of their house or block their mailbox. Also, think of the neighbor across the street and park so that you’re not making it difficult for them to back out of their own driveway. All of our homes have at least a two or three-car garage and room for several cars in the driveway. We respectfully request that you refrain from parking on the street.
If you are having any problems with getting trash picked up or want to register a complaint, please call WCA at 281-368-8397 if you are a customer of Memorial MUD. If you are a customer of MUD 81, you may call Royale Disposal and Recycle at 713-526-1536.
The HOA has received complaints about trashcans being stored in front of the home, left at curbside, and not being stored out of sight. In the past, the deed restriction committee has not been writing

281-398-9911 letters to homeowners about proper storage of trashcans. Since this has become a problem in the neighborhood, we are now sending letters to homeowners if their trashcans are not properly stored out of sight. Trash cans should be placed at the curb the morning of trash pickup and the cans should be stored away out of sight by the end of the day. If your trashcans are visible from the street on any day other than trash day, you will in violation of the deed restriction. Thanks to all of you who have started storing your trash receptacles out of public view. It really has made a big difference in the overall appearance of our neighborhood and we appreciate your cooperation.
2013 MAINTENANCE FEES
Statements for the 2013 maintenance fees will be mailed to all homeowners during the ﬁrst week of October. If you haven’t received your statement by the end of October, please notify the ofﬁce of a good mailing address as you are responsible for paying the fees by January 1, 2013. When you receive your statement in October, you may start paying ahead immediately. If you cannot pay the fee in full by January 1, 2013, you may get on a payment plan, at no charge, making a down payment and $50 monthly payments. If you don’t sign up for the plan by January 14th, you can still get on a payment plan, but will be charged a fee of $25. More information will be in the October issue.
MPCA would like to suggest that garage sales be conducted the ﬁrst Friday and Saturday of each month. This will eliminate the many signs that are out each week and also makes for a stronger turn out. Most area communities only allow sales twice a year. Memorial Parkway could be known for its “Once a Month” garage sales. Do not attach your garage sale signs to the STOP signs, as it is against the law and the County can issue citations for this. If a sign is on a public right of way, like the esplanades), they may be subject to ﬁnes of $500-$1000 per occurrence per day. We also ask that you do not post your signs on the property of another resident. When your sale is over, please go back and pick up all of your signs.
All exterior changes to your property must be submitted to our committee for approval before you start any work. This includes, but is not limited to, painting, re-rooﬁng, sheds, patio covers, fences, etc. All requests must be on our request form that can be found in this newsletter, online at our website www.mphoa.org or at the ofﬁce. Please give as much detail as possible, so there is no delay in getting your request reviewed. Except for painting and re-rooﬁng, it would be best to include a plat of your property that shows property lines and easements in relation to the location of your project.

Memorial Parkway Community Association has inspectors that drive through the neighborhood checking for violations of our deed restrictions. They are not permitted to get out of their cars and/or trespass on your property. They only take pictures of violations that can be seen from the street. If you see one of our inspectors stopped in front of your home, please do not approach their vehicle to confront them. Their vehicles are indentiﬁed with a MPCA sign on the car door that says deed restriction inspector. If you still have questions, call the ofﬁce. If you get a notice of violation and you feel it was sent to you in error, please call the ofﬁce. Our staff will look at the picture taken of the violation and conﬁrm whether the address is correct or not. Our inspectors make every effort to make sure they’ve got the right violation logged to the right address with the right picture to go along with it. But with 2,219 homes to inspect and over 25 miles of streets, they sometimes get it wrong. If that’s the case, we apologize for the mistake and will remove the violation from your record.

Storing trash receptacles and recycle bins in view can easily remedied by just moving them to another location that can’t be seen from the street - no cost involved. Correcting these two violations alone would greatly improve the appearance of your property. Also remember to move the cans from curbside the same day that the trash is picked up and store them where they can’t be seen from the street. The next big item is lawn maintenance. Many of our residents mow every two weeks, but at certain times of the year, yards may have to be done every week to maintain a neat appearance. We understand that it takes time and money to resolve some of the other violations such as rotten wood, fences falling down, repainting the exterior of your home, etc. We will work with you and allow ample time to take care of the violation, but you must contact us when you receive the ﬁrst letter and no later than when you get a second one. The third notice means that a $50 ﬁne has already been added to your account.

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal. Harris County Animal Control advises, “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question. 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle. 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk or street. While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained. Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet. Please remember that cats fall under the same laws as dogs and must be licensed and kept restrained when not on the premises of the owner. We’ve been told that spreading moth balls in flower beds might keep cats away.
To make a complaint or report an animal that is not properly restrained please contact: Harris County Precinct #5, Contract #87: 281-463-6666 Harris County Animal Control: 281-999-3191 Harris County Health Department, Rabies/Animal Control Section 2223 West Loop South, Houston, Texas 77027-3588 www.countypets.com
PROCEDURE FOR REPORTING BARKING DOGS: 1. Contact your neighbor and work it out as good neighbors should. 2. In the event that #1 is not possible, contact the Constables at 281463-6666. It is our understanding that the Constables will investigate the barking dogs. In order to file a formal complaint you must be willing to give the officer your name, address and phone number for their records. PROCEDURE FOR REPORTING LOOSE DOGS, DOG BITES & LOST PETS: 1. Contact Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191 or 281999-3194. A recorded message will guide you through the system. When reporting a loose animal you will be asked to give your name and address, a description of the animal and the address of the animal’s owner (if known).
DOING REPAIR WORK ON YOUR HOMES EXTERIOR????
The ACC is receiving record numbers of requests to make improvements or changes to the exterior of homes. We thank you for your cooperation in filling out the forms before starting any work. If you are planning to do any repairs, re-roofing, re-painting, additions, pools, storage sheds, fencing or patio covers please turn in a request
form for approval. Forms can be found in the newsletter or online at our website WWW.MPHOA.ORG. You may also pick up a form from the ofﬁce during ofﬁce hours.
RESIDENT COMMENT FORM
If you have noticed a problem in the subdivision you think needs taking care of, please complete the resident comment form and turn it in to the ofﬁce. The subdivision gets a drive through inspection twice a month. Some problems may not be noticed at that time. It is helpful if residents can inform the ofﬁce in writing of such problems. Having complaints in writing is helpful, if the association has to take legal steps in enforcing deed restriction violations. Our subdivision was formed 35 years ago and we need to take steps to keep it looking nice so the value of homes will continue to increase.

KATY REBELS GIRLS BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
The 8th Grade Katy Rebels-D’Addieco Team took 1st place in the June 30-July 1, 2012 Primetime tournament in Humble, TX. The team went 4-0 to win the tournament in convincing fashion. The zone defense continued to frustrate opponents and the extra effort to complete every hustle play led to opportunities that made the difference in the games. Their continued commitment to defense allowed them to control the pace of the games and deflate opponents early, resulting in large margins of victory against quality teams. Congratulations to Allison, LaShanda, Kim, Sydney, Natalia, Alyssa, Emily, Delaney, Tianna and Anna on another successful tournament!
