Homeowner’s Alert!

We just recently received our homeowner assessment invoices in June 2012. These invoices would have normally been received in December 2011. Some homeowners have chosen to delay paying their assessment dues due to hardship. If you choose to do so, you can request a payment plan from three to eighteen months in accordance with the new HOA Law! If you have already received a payment plan for three months that you have not signed and it is a hardship for you to pay, then you can request that the payment plan be extended to six, nine, twelve or eighteen months.

Give wHAt you cAn to our PArkwAy lAkes leGAl fund! If you are tired of seeing our community declining every year, our HOA account empty, the amenities in ruins (no pool, no clubhouse, unsafe playground), our home values plunging, the continuation of outrageous expenditures, the annual dues increase without justification, non-existence of annual HOA meetings and increased crime rate, please contribute to our cause to remove the developer from the HOA Board once and for all. Developer has no more residential lots in our subdivision but yet, he refuses to recognize the newly voted Board members whom are all residents of our community. Therefore, we have no choice but to take legal actions and put our HOA in the hands of the homeowners who love the community and want to see it thrive! We also would like to begin holding fundraisers to help raise the remaining amount. Please email Bruce at if you have any ideas or would like to participate in organizing a fundraising event. Any and all ideas are welcome. Please note that if law permits, it is our intention to return the contribution of all the homeowners in the event that we win our legal case by reducing yearly assessment fees until you are repaid for your generosity! Here are 2 ways to contribute: 1 - Deposit funds to the Tradition Bank directly. 2 - Mail your check to the Bank address below (payable to Parkway Lakes Legal Fund): Account Name: Parkway Lakes Legal Fund Account Number: 16062736 Tradition Bank...12300 Bellaire Blvd...Houston, TX 77072

Tips on DenTal Fluorosis A large body of literature has proven the benefits of fluoride in drastically reducing dental caries, especially in children. An optimal amount of fluoride is available in many community water supplies to allow for this benefit to occur. As with everything in life, however, too much of a good thing is not necessarily beneficial. Fluorosis is a condition in which chronic ingestion of above optimal amounts of fluoride can cause defects in the tooth enamel. In this condition, the enamel remains strong but it can show discoloration that may be esthetically displeasing and expensive to mask. Excessive ingestion of fluoride can occur in several ways: if water fluoridation is not properly regulated, if fluoride supplementation is used incorrectly or if a child ingests excessive amounts of fluoridated toothpaste. Improperly reconstituted infant formula may also be a source of excessive fluoride. Several adult teeth begin formation during the first couple months of life, so any higher than normal fluoride intake during that time can affect dental development. Powdered formula contains some fluoride and when fluoridated tap water is added to prepare it for feeding purposes, an excessive amount of fluoride can be ingested. Several articles have shown an association between formula preparation and mild fluorosis. For this reason, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) encourages dentists to educate parents on ways to reconstitute formula to minimize any risks of developing this dental disorder. Your local pediatric dentist should have information about optimal fluoride intake for infants and children and should also be aware of fluoride levels in local water supplies. He/she will be able to guide you in concerns you may have regarding fluorosis and infant formula reconstitution. Submitted by: Faisal Khan, DDS, PLLC

Come with a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. It may not be the most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show your respect for every homeowner and our beautiful community.



PLease Note - Pets oN Leashes It is the law in Fort Bend County that all pets must be vaccinated for rabies, registered and restrained. All animals, when outside of an owner’s means of restraint (i.e., in a fenced back yard), must be on a leash. If you see ANY animal roaming freely in the neighborhood, immediately call Animal Control at 281-342-1512. Even if you recognize the animal, be very careful approaching it, as you do not know how it will react; if you can safely retrieve the animal, then call the owner. Otherwise, Animal Control is your best and safest option.

BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY: MAKE IT A PRIORITY As parents prepare for the start of a new school year, teaching children how to be safer needs to be at the top of their list of things to do. An analysis by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children of attempted abductions during the past five years found that children are at most risk when going to and from school or school related activities. Parents and other adults can help keep children safe by following these ten tips: walking or biking and stay with a group while standing at the bus stop. Make sure they know which bus to ride.

ruoK ProGram Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Dept. has a computer-generated program called “Are You OK?” (RUOK). It is a computer-generated call intended for senior citizens (over 55) and disabled persons who live alone and could benefit from a daily check. A computer will generate a call each morning, at about the same time and the participant chooses a time frame. A voice will ask, “Are you OK?” After this, all they have to do is hang up the phone. If the participant goes out of town or leaves the residence for any time, you just temporarily un-subscribe and re-subscribe when you return. If the call goes unanswered, the computer will call back 3 times at 15-minute intervals. If there is still no answer, the Sheriff will dispatch a deputy or the local police. They will have with them a print out of information on the person that is not responding to the calls. This program was established by FBC Sheriff Milton Wright, Commissioner’s Court

ATTENTION! PET POOPs / YOu scOOP Please be respectful of community grounds and neighbors’ yards. If your pet poops during your walk, be prepared to scoop and trash. Come with a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. It may not be the most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show your respect for every homeowner and our beautiful community.

PLEAsE NOTE - PETs ON LEAshEs It is the law in Fort Bend County that all pets must be vaccinated for rabies, registered and restrained. All animals, when outside of an owner’s means of restraint (i.e., in a fenced back yard), must be on a leash. For the safety of all residents, please use all precautions with your pets and keep them on leashes when walking pets in the community EVEN IF YOU FEEL YOUR PET IS HARMLESS. If you see ANY animal roaming freely in the neighborhood, immediately call Animal Control at 281-342-1512. Even if you recognize the animal, be very careful approaching it, as you do not know how it will react; if you can safely retrieve the animal, then call the owner. Otherwise, Animal Control is your best and safest option.

As a dog owner, you are responsible for the control of your dog. If your dog is one that ‘makes objectionable noise,’ you must make every effort to respect your Neighbor’s right to their ‘peace and quiet.’ When your dog is not in your yard, it is imperative that you keep your dog on a leash at all times. While your dog is friendly to you and your family, imagine the consequences if it were to harm someone while it was ‘roaming free.’

Rip Blackwood Cinco Ranch Resident



Please respect other resident’s right to walk the common area ground without fear of attack from an unleashed dog. Laws are written to ensure that owned animals are confined to their property or kept on a leash to free a community of unrestrained and free-roaming animals. Although most dog bites occur on the property where the dog lives, unrestrained or free-roaming dogs do pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained animals are at increased risk of being bitten by rabies infected wildlife. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in enhancing the animal control program’s efforts to reduce the risk of rabies in our community.
