A shaded garden mix of ferns, plumbango and begonias beautifully blend next to a buttermilk yellow front door. This lawn is a sweet reminder to push through the heat and keep gardening.

DEED RESTRICTIONS AND ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW
Reminder: Please submit an Architectural Review application prior to commencing any exterior changes to your property. An application is included in the “Windsong Whistler” for your convenience. DEED RESTRICTION/home improvement SCS Management Services is contracted to enforce our deed restriction guidelines in an effort to continuously improve our community and keep property values up. We would like to ask everyone to refer to their deed restrictions on issues that might pertain to our community. Citing (if applicable to your guidelines) could result from one or more of the following: 1) Garage door paint should match your house or trim. 2) Houses/garages should be clean of dirt and mildew. 3) House, garage and trim in need of repainting (i.e. - fading, peeling or poor quality of paint). 4) Trim boards, garage doors, shutters or gutters in need of repair. 5) Oil stains in the driveway or street. 6) Flower beds, shrubs or trees that need weeding or pruning. 7) Yard Decorations should be repaired/maintained as needed. Compliance with our community guidelines is greatly appreciated.
DEED RESTRICTION VIOLATIONS
On inspection of the community in July, the following violations were logged: Architectural Control 3 Clean-Up 85 Lawns 63 Repairs 45 Vehicles 39 Miscellaneous 12 TOTAL 247 Violations cleared 352 The purpose of the inspections is to bring about an improvement in the appearance of our community.

“Serving the Katy area for over 7 years.”
SCS Management Services has been working with your Board of Directors for many years now. One of the services that your Board has contracted us for is Deed Restriction inspections. We are out on a monthly basis to drive through the neighborhood. Over the years, we have seen many changes in Windsong. We would like to take this opportunity to share some of them with you. It is likely that one of the main reasons you moved to Windsong is because of the beautiful trees. All those trees add to the humidity in the neighborhood and, therefore, create a perfect environment for mildew. Walk outside and take a good look at your brick and siding. There are many commercial products that can be applied to remove and kill the mildew. You won’t believe what a difference it will make to your home and the overall appearance of the neighborhood! Besides creating the perfect environment for mildew, the trees also shade our lawns to the point that sunlight cannot get through to the grass, so it dies. The best way to a healthy lawn is to thin out your trees. We also see damage to sidewalks from tree roots. Remember that you are responsible to maintain your property in a healthful and safe manner. If someone trips on your sidewalk, you will be liable. We are also seeing some dead trees and stumps in yards. The Board has asked SCS to cite for removal. One last thing about trees, please keep the limbs trimmed over the sidewalks and the streets and away from street signs. School buses and emergency vehicles need to be able to safely drive down the street and not be hit by overhanging limbs. When we drive the streets, we see more parked cars in the street than we used to. The streets are county property and, although parked cars are permitted, we would ask that you move them into the driveway whenever possible. Children cannot be seen crossing the streets when there are many parked cars in the street. It would just be awful if someone got hurt because car owners cannot park their cars where they are supposed to be. The age of the homes in Windsong is lending itself to the replacement and repair of siding. Most of the homes were built prior to “hardi-plank” and the wood is deteriorating. We will be evaluating siding repairs as we drive through the neighborhood. If you get a letter about that, please call us. The letter sent will give a time limit to correct the violation
and you will likely need more time. We are happy to give that time extension once we know that you plan to make the repairs. The aging process takes its toll on fences, too. They age from the top down and from the bottom up for different reasons. Either way, top to bottom or bottom to top, you need to take a look at your fences and replace them. SCS is contracted to process the Architectural Review applications. Any exterior change you make to your property needs to have approval from the committee. Please send them directly to our office at 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77095. One last comment, if you see a property that you think has a violation that concerns you, please call our office at 281463-1777 or complete the form in this newsletter and let us know. We will monitor it to be sure it is a consistent problem and verify the violation before sending a letter. Your call will be confidential. But remember, it is not SCS, nor the Board’s role to get involved in neighbor-to-neighbor disputes, so please call in only violations. In addition, there are some issues that are not deed restriction issues, but rather law enforcement issues. When you call our office, we will let you know if it is something that we can enforce and, if it is not, we will suggest to you who you should contact.
PALM TREES Windsong has numerous palm trees. While these trees do not provide much shade, they do withstand windstorms and look tropical. Some complaints we have involve the unsightly appearance caused by the dead fronds extending down the trunks. “Skinning” is the term that refers to removing dead leaves from the palms. As the fronds die, they create a thatched, hula-skirt look. Some like this petticoat, others don’t. To create a tidier look and neater appearance, prune the dead fronds after late Spring/early Summer blooms. It’s important to avoid scarring the trunk when pruning palms because they are a dicot and their trunks do not heal over like oaks or pines. Never cut the terminal end of a palm trunk or the plant will die.

If you have palm trees in your yard, you will probably need a professional to remove the fronds due to the height of the trees and the fact that the fronds are very rough and have sharp spines or edges. Likewise, you may want to hire a pest control company to eliminate the rodent problem if they relocate to other parts of your property.

The other issue is that these dead fronds provide nesting places for rodents (rats and squirrels) to live. Pruning the trees may or may not cause the rats to relocate. Pruning will not kill the rats. Mothballs and ammonia will discourage the rodents from climbing the trunks as will a metal cone around the palm trunk.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR
We would like to address one of the items that the Windsong Community Improvement Association gets the most complaints about. We receive many complaints from homeowners about vehicles parked on the street blocking the flow of traffic. The reason for that is because the roads were not designed with a parking lane. There is not enough width to allow for a parking lane. More seriously, when an emergency vehicle is unable to obtain egress and ingress to a street, precious minutes are lost that could mean loss of life/and or property. The problem becomes intolerable in cul-de-sacs where emergency vehicles or others cannot turn around due to vehicles parking inappropriately and not parallel to the curb. The neighbors of these improperly parked vehicles are inconvenienced when they have to go out of their way to get around them. Be aware that Law Enforcement can and will ticket vehicles parked too far from the curb, parked the wrong way on the street, parked facing in on a culde-sac instead of parallel to the curb or parking too close to a fire hydrant or a traffic sign.
FREE HEARTWORM TEST Call for Details.
Everyone can “look the other way” and tolerate a vehicle parked temporarily for a visitor. We are referring to vehicles parked overnight, day after day. Please try to think of others and be a good neighbor. Don’t block your neighbor’s ability to enter and exit his driveway safely or block his/or her mailbox. We know that the homes in Windsong have two car garages. If you have multiple vehicles, please try to park them in the driveway and/or the garage overnight and whenever possible. Your neighbors will thank you! WCIA Board of Directors
SPECIAL PROJECT COMING UP?
1. First things first…an Architectural Control Application needs to be completed and submitted to Windsong CIA c/o SCS management Services before any work is started. 2. Include samples of paint, shingles, etc. with the application. 3. Once submitted, SCS Management Services will forward the application to the Architectural Control Committee for review. 4. Wait for a written approval from the ACC before beginning any work. Contact SCS at 281-463-1777 if you need an application.
The Board of Directors and the Architectural Control Committee are concerned that residents are completing projects without prior approval. Did you know that if you complete any project that does not meet architectural guidelines you are in violation of the deed restrictions? The Association has the right to take action to enforce the deed restrictions and request the removal or modification of your improvement. We want you to know before hand so that you do not spend money on improvements that may not be approved. Remember, that the deed restrictions and the architectural guidelines are in place to protect neighborhood harmony and maintain everyoneâ€™s property values.
EXTERIOR HOUSE PAINT COLOR SELECTION
The WCIA provides many opportunities for the residents to obtain approval for exterior painting prior to commencing the work. Each new resident is mailed a New Resident Welcome Packet that contains among other things a copy of the Architectural Guidelines that is recorded in the real property records of Harris County. Article VIII of this document tells you the guidelines for painting and the locations for you to view the approved color chart (SCS Management Services, 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, TX 77095 and Sherwin-Williams, 5814 Highway 6 North, Houston, TX 77084). An Architectural Review application is also included in your packet. If you misplace your application or need another one, you can access www.scsmgmt.com, click on forms to print one. You can also contact SCS at 281-463-1777 or stop by our office to request one.
WINDSONG CIA RESIDENT DEED RESTRICTION COMPLAINT FORM The Board of Directors receives resident complaint forms on a monthly basis. We thank those who take the time to send them. The forms are reviewed at the monthly Board meetings and then referred to SCS Management Services to process. SCS verifies the report during their next drive-by deed restriction patrol of the community. Many times we receive complaints such as disturbing the peace, animal smells coming from a house or yard, barking dogs, neighbor to neighbor disputes, etc. We want to let you know that the association cannot enforce these types of reports.

PET HOTLINE NEWS
Kittens and puppies are being dumped in Subdivisions and shopping strips. They will not find good homes. Most will be taken by the pound or shelter and those are overflowing with pets. They cannot help but have to euthanize some. You, as a responsible pet owner can be of great help by having your cat or dog spayed or neutered and not worry about finding homes for the offspring. You will have a healthier and happy pet. Another and very important thing you can do is have a collar with some form of ID and your phone number on it. Pet stores have special ID’s for your pets. Many pet owners are now “chipping” the pets. If found and taken to a vet they can scan chip and find the owner. If your pet has a rabies tag, the vet has your name and #. The first thing I ask a caller is “does the pet have ID on it.” If it does, I will help contact the # on the ID and get the pet to it’s owner ASAP. Or, the owner can pick up their lost pet. Having an ID on a pet makes life easier for all. Marie Nugent - 281-859-1104

HONORING SEPT. 11 TH Twelve years have passed since the one day that changed our beloved America forever. We will never forget Sept. 11, 2001. There are many ways we can honor the innocent lives lost on this day. Begin by saying a prayer for their souls and continue to pray for the families affected. Volunteer and give to charity and do so without conditions. Plant a tree or flowers and say a prayer. Do something special for our first response teams. Last but not least, be thankful for your many blessings and gifts.
“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through September. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.
