MPCA BOARD ELECTION

This November, we will be having an election to fill 2 seats on the Board of Directors. The three-year term of Charles Herring and Barbara Burleson will end on December 31st. Both Charles and Barbara are running again to retain their seats on the Board. BARBARA BURLESON I am seeking election for another term on the Board of Directors. I have been employed with a construction company as Executive Vice President and Treasurer for a total of 27 years. Also I have served on the National Board of National Association of Women in Construction. 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. Please complete the proxy ballot and return it to the office no later than November 5, 2012 or you may vote in person at the Annual Board meeting on November 6, 2012. It is important that each household cast their vote, as we need no less than 10% of our homeowners in order to have a valid election.

It is not a violation of our deed restrictions to park a vehicle on the street as long as it is not being stored, is fully operational and has current tags. 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.

TRASH COLLECTION

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.

MPCA I.D. INFORMATION

Every resident must have a MPCA I.D. CARD to use the pools, clubhouse and tennis courts. Complete the I.D. Registration form in this newsletter and return it to the office at least 3 days before coming in to the office for pictures taken. If you are renting your home, please provide us evidence that you live in the subdivision, i.e. a water bill with your name on it, etc. ID’s are for residents only. Homeowners who do not live in Memorial Parkway are not eligible for a MPCA I.D. CARD. Once you have the card, turn it in to the office the following year for validation.

TRASH CANS

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 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.

STREET GUTTERS AND DRAINS

We ask that you keep the street area in front of your home clean, so that leaves, pine needles, grass clippings and dirt won’t accumulate in the gutters next to the curb and end up being washed into the drains causing them to back up and flood the streets. If you see someone putting grass clippings, oil or other debris down the drains, please contact the MUD District and the County at 281-463-6300. This includes lawn contractors that are blowing the leaves into the street instead of bagging them.

When you receive your statement in October, you may start making payments before the due date. You may pay by personal check, money order or cashier’s check sent to the address on the statement. We also accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa. For you convenience, you can use your credit card by going to www. mphoa.org - our web page. 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. Call the office for details.

GARAGE SALES

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.

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.

DEED RESTRICTIONS

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.

ANIMAL CONTROL REMINDER FOR DOG WALKERS

Southern Home Improvements

Be a responsible / considerate pet owner by picking up your dog’s waste from your neighbor’s yard when you’re out for a walk. There’s nothing more frustrating than stepping in fecal matter in your own yard when you don’t even have a pet.

• Rotten Wood Removal • HardiPlank® Siding • Vinyl Siding • Windows • Doors • Seamless Gutters • All Types of Roofing

LEASH LAW

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.

DECIBELLES (A BARBERSHOP CHORUS)

We are a ladies daytime chorus with approximately 30 members. We have been performing in the Houston area for over 30 years. We sing old favorites and contemporary tunes arranged in the barbershop style. The four parts creating the barbershop sound are Tenor, Lead, Baritone and Bass. We rehearse Friday mornings from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Treemont Retirement Center located at 2501 Westerland, off Westheimer and Gessner. We love to have visitors and even more when you decide to join our chorus. We perform two types of shows each year. Currently we are singing a selection of patriotic songs, Johnny Mathis’ “Chances Are,” Perry Como’s “Hot Diggity Dog” and other fun tunes. You’ll be singing along with us before you know it. Our Christmas show includes old favorites, but also includes new fun tunes with props, narratives and choreography. We’ll begin preparing that program in October and book performances for the first two weeks in December. Come visit any Friday and see how much fun you can have with us. For additional information, please call Pat at 281-497-4904 or decibelle@comcast.net.

KIMBERLY AKIMBO, By David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Ron Jones, November 29-December 15, 2012, STUDIO 101 (1824 Spring Street, Houston 77007). Kimberly Akimbo is a play written in 2000 by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Its title character is a lonely teenage girl suffering from a disease a lot like progeria, that causes her to age 4 and a half times as fast as normal. Thus, Kimberly is trapped inside the frail physical body of an elderly woman. She meets another misfit (a teenage boy) and the two form an attachment to one another that borders on attraction. The situation is not helped by Kimberly’s rapidly deteriorating health. Soon Kimberly’s family gets mixed up in some crazy money schemes and the family gets emotionally destroyed.
