A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

Your Board of Directors would like to wish all our residents a safe and happy holiday and a very prosperous and successful New Year!

NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS

As New Year’s Eve approaches, residents are asked to respect the ban on letting off fireworks in the subdivision. They may be fun, but they spook pets, they leave litter on the streets and more importantly, they are a potential fire hazard. If you feel compelled to set off fireworks, please go to a safe area outside of our subdivision. But the best approach is to attend a professionally organized firework show. The Harris County Fire Marshal’s website (www.hcfmo.net/fireworks.aspx) has a lot of information on the use of fireworks within the County and should be consulted as we approach the holiday.

CHRISTMAS YARD OF THE MONTH DECORATING CONTEST WINNERS

The winners of the annual Christmas Yard Decorating Contest will be published in the February Newsletter.

BAGGED GRASS CLIPPINGS

Some of our residents may not realize that the requirements of ARTICLE 12 of our deed restrictions, which states in part: “garbage and other waste accumulated from normal household operations may be kept temporarily for purposes of collection. All such waste substances being kept on a lot pending collection thereof, shall be kept in closed sanitary containers with tops or lids or plastic bags with the tops thereof, tied and such containers shall be hidden from general view by a screen or enclosure” applies to ALL waste, as well as items that are often left on the curb following a weekend clean-out of the garage or spare room, this includes bagged grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste irrespective of whether this waste is generated by the residents or by contractors hired by them to maintain their yards. Some of these contractors don’t seem to be aware of this requirement and leave bagged yard waste at the curb. When this is done any time after the Thursday pick-up, for example, this unsightly garbage stays on the curb through the weekend until it is collected the following Monday. If the contractor performing your lawn maintenance does this, please let him know that this is not permitted in our subdivision and make arrangements to have this waste either removed directly from your home by the contractor or placed in an inconspicuous location until you can move it to the curb on the morning of the next pick-up day. Thanks!

DRAFT MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF WILLIAMSBURG SETTLEMENT MAINTENANCE ASSOCIATION, INC. NOVEMBER 19, 2013

A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Williamsburg Settlement Maintenance Association, Inc. was held on Tuesday, November 19, 2013, at 5:30 PM, at the Williamsburg Settlement Clubhouse, 1602 Hoyt, Katy, Texas 77449. ATTENDANCE Board Members present were Walter Smith, Gail Owen, Floyd Ball, Dave Ellis and Michael Wood. Also in attendance were Officer Felchak and Dolores Sue representing Planned Community Management, Inc. (PCMI). With a quorum being established, the meeting was called to order at 5:30 PM. MINUTES The Board reviewed the minutes of the October 15, 2013 Board meeting. A motion to accept the minutes as written was made by Walt Smith, seconded by Larry Crain and unanimously approved. HOMEOWNER CONCERNS There were three (3) homeowners present. One new resident would like a recycle bin. PCMI will contact the garbage collection company and have one delivered. A resident stated that he has noticed more trailers in the streets and specially one that parks at one of the exits to the subdivision. He expressed the concern that now that it becomes darker earlier it is very dangerous for the trailer to be parked in that location. The Board confirmed they are aware of that and other similar situations and agree these trailers could be traffic hazards. Unfortunately, as the streets are the property of Harris County the Association has limited jurisdiction. Letters are sent in situation where these trailers are parked for extended periods. The Board reviewed a complaint from a resident concerning a home, no address provided, that the complaining resident believes is being used for more than a single family dwelling. The Board tabled this discussion until the Executive session. PATROL SERVICE REPORT Martin Spears presented the patrol service report. There was one break-in during the month of October. FINANCIAL REVIEW Dave Ellis presented the financials. As of October 31, 2013, the money in the bank totaled $550,597. This includes checking, savings accounts and CD’s and is the money to cover both operating expenses and the necessary reserve to fund maintenance and replacement of the Association’s capital assets.

For all your home maintenance and repair needs call us today. No job is too small.

Delinquency for the month ending October 31, 2013 was $15,784.52. RESERVE STUDY Dave Ellis presented the reserve study, which he has updated for 2014. This study is updated each year to ensure there is enough money in the reserve account to fund the future replacement of major items of our infrastructure when such replacement becomes necessary. It does not include the Perimeter Fence, however, which is handled separately.

Dave Ellis discussed the amount to be transferred to the Reserve at the end of 2013, recommending that the budgeted $22,000 be transferred to the general reserve together with the budgeted $36,000 to the perimeter fence replacement fund. Walt Smith made a motion to make these transfers. The motion was seconded by Larry Crain and unanimously approved. OLD BUSINESS STATUS ON REPAIRS TO CARTER’S GROVE MONUMENT The repairs have now been completed. The Board discussed the approach to seeking compensation from the insurance company of the vehicle that damaged the monument for the expenditures incurred in excess of the amount covered by our insurance. This excess includes the cost of landscaping, sprinkler system repair and some electrical work. The Board will work with PCMI to refer the invoices to the appropriate insurance agent. NEW BUSINESS EXPLORE WAYS TO SAVE RESIDENT’S MONEY FOR SERVICES PROVIDED Floyd Ball informed the meeting that the Harris County Municipal Utility District Number 61 (MUD 61) has placed on the agenda of their Tuesday, November 26, 2013 meeting, a discussion of some services currently provided by the Association, which could possibly be supplied by the MUD at a lower cost. Floyd will attend the meeting and bring back for discussion at a future Association Board meeting any recommendations that the MUD may make. MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT NUMBER 61 (MUD 61) - FLOOD PREVENTION PROJECT Floyd Ball reported that the MUD 61 has proceeded with the purchase of the home at 22023 Bucktrout that was discussed at last month’s meeting in connection with the proposed flood abatement project. Based on the advice of the Association attorney, the Board was unable to sign the agreement, which the MUD had initially requested from the Association.

2014 ASSESSMENT INVOICES Floyd Ball informed the meeting that the 2014 invoices have now been mailed on or about November 15, 2013. Dave Ellis will send an email letting residents know and asking anyone who has not received theirs to contact PCMI. Early in the new year, Floyd Ball and Dave Ellis will meet with Tammy Evans, the PCMI Regional Manager, to discuss improvements to the invoicing procedure for 2015. CONTRACTS ENDING DECEMBER 31, 2013 The contracts for the previously approved 2014 landscaping and patrol services were signed. HOLIDAY DECORATIONS There is a need for some renovation of the signs for the holiday decoration winners and some of the garland used to decorate the subdivision entrances. A motion to have Gail Owens and Larry Crain work together and giving them authority to spend up to $500 on this project was made by Larry Cain, seconded by Walt Smith and unanimously approved. GARAGE SALES The Association has received a request to consider having assigned Garage Sale days or weekends. The Board tabled this discussion until its January 2014 meeting. ADJOURNMENT TO EXECUTIVE SESSION At 7:10 PM, the Board adjourned to executive session to discuss delinquencies, deed restriction and other matters. DECISIONS MADE DURING EXECUTIVE SESSION DELINQUENCY The Board reviewed the delinquency report. At the present time, no additional accounts need to be sent to the Association attorney. DEED RESTRICTIONS The Board reviewed the deed restriction list from the inspections

UPDATE OF EMAIL ADDRESSES

This is just a reminder that the email addresses to which emails from the WSMA Webmaster are broadcast are those that have been registered on the www.WSMAonline.org website by the residents themselves. This email distribution list is used to disseminate important announcements to Settlement residents. However, email addresses do tend to be rather dynamic as residents change their ISP for a variety of reasons and when they do so, unless they re-register their new email addresses on the Registration page of the website, they will no longer receive these broadcast emails. So please, when conveying a new email address to those in your address book, also update our mailing list by removing your old email address and

website, they can do so by using the RESIDENTS’ DIRECTORY ENTRY FORM. This form is accessible via the Forms, Registration or Directory pages of our website www.wsmaonline.org. The webmaster uses the information submitted to maintain the directory database. If the resident indicates on the form that he or she is agreeable to having their information accessible via the online Residents’ Directory page, the update will be made as soon as possible - usually within 24 hours. New residents to our subdivision are requested to use this same form to register their information for inclusion in the directory OR TO CONVEY THEIR DECISION THAT THEIR INFORMATION NOT BE INCLUDED. This request to new residents is included in the Welcome Packet given to each as soon as PCMI is made aware of the change in Ownership.

STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

To report a burned out streetlight, any resident may call CenterPoint directly at 713-207-2222. However, for those with Internet access, you may also make this report on-line. For those interested, you can go to http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage. Then enter your contact details so that they can get back to you if more information is required. On the following page enter the details of the light(s) with the problem. Just as you would if reporting the outage via the telephone, you will need to provide the street address where the light is located and the 6-digit number that is prominently displayed on the front of the pole. Under normal circumstances the crew will be out to fix the problem within 7 working days.   Anyone noticing a streetlight that is out or has some other malfunction is encouraged to report the problem to CenterPoint via either of these two methods without delay. Our Association is charged for every streetlight each month, irrespective of whether or not the light is functioning. So please help us get value for your hard earned money!

Residents need to be sure and pay attention to the state of the paint on their houses. Many of the houses in the settlement are of an age that they will soon need to be repainted or sided. Please be proactive in getting this done when necessary. Doing this before you have a problem will not only keep your house looking nicer, but doing it early can end up saving you money! But please remember that all such work does require Architectural Review Committee approval. This is obtained by completing a “Request For Home Improvement Approval” form and mailing it to PCMI. A blank copy of this form is included in this newsletter and is also available on the Board Notices and Forms page our website at WSMAonline.org.

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. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas.

dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or 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 then 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 to 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.

GARDENING TIPS FOR JANUARY

• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water than from lack of food. • Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering. • Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms. • Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before planting. • Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal. Water in. • Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze damage to crown. • House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce water for poinsettias. • Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture. • Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed manufacturer s directions before spraying. • Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semi-shaded until rooted. • Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape. Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting unwanted canes out at base of plant. • Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds, keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new beds for roses. • Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate

size and cultural needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist. • Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about 50% humus, including rotted manure. • Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender plants.

KATY ISD’S 16TH ANNUAL PROMISE TO READ

Community members from Katy and the surrounding area recently stopped what they were doing to read to students in more than 375 classes as part of Katy ISD’s 16th annual Promise to Read program. Through Promise to Read, volunteers promise to spend 30 minutes reading to an elementary classroom during two weeks in November. This year, 10 Katy ISD elementary campuses hosted the event with Partners in Education: Cimarron, Creech, Franz, Golbow, Exley, Rhoads, Rylander, Williams, Wilson and Winborn Elementary Schools. Host campuses rotate each year so that, over a three-year period, every Katy ISD elementary has an opportunity to participate. Readers represented a cross section of local companies and organizations including: American Kids Athletics, AXA Financial Advisors, Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union, BP America, Inc., CenterPoint Energy, Chick-fil-A of Katy, College Nannies and Tutors of Katy, Cinco Ranch Conservatory of Music, ExxonMobil, First Victoria Bank, Grand Vision Center, Hasta La Pasta, H-E-B Katy Market, Herff Jones Graduation Center, Katy Area Chamber of Commerce, Katy Family YMCA, Members Choice Credit Union, Omni Houston Hotel Westside, Pediatric Dentists of Katy, Pepper Lawson Construction, Rainforest Café, The Shady Lady Window Coverings, Tradition Bank, Wood Group and more.

During the November Board Work Study meeting, Officer Shannon Taylor was sworn in to serve on the Katy ISD Police Force. Officer Taylor’s law enforcement experience includes having served as a police officer for the Delphi, Indiana Police Department and Purdue University.  Officer Taylor is a graduate from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and has been an officer for more than 14 years.  After serving for Purdue and Delphi, Officer Taylor served three years as a police officer at Rice University. She resides in Katy with her husband, John Taylor and her daughter.  Katy ISD peace officers are licensed and certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education. The Katy ISD police jurisdiction includes all territory within the boundaries of the District (181 square miles) and all property, real and personal, outside the boundaries of the District that is owned, leased or rented by the District or otherwise under the District’s control. Peace officers employed by Katy ISD have the same authority, powers, privileges and immunities as bestowed on all Texas peace officers while on or off duty. For more information about the Katy ISD Police Department, visit www.katyisd.org/police.

Promise to Read is one of several community involvement programs offered by Katy ISD Partners in Education, the department that brings the community into the classroom. Click here to view a photo gallery from this event.

BP AMERICA, INC. LEADS KATY ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION INVESTORS

The Katy ISD Education Foundation is pleased to announce that BP America has joined the organization as a Cornerstone Investor by contributing $50,000 for STEM-related teacher grants. The BP STEM Grant Program will be administered via the foundation’s Inspiring Imagination teacher grant initiative. STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and represents the integration of science and mathematics into existing areas of study. “As a Katy ISD Education Foundation Cornerstone Investor, BP stands at the forefront of an initiative from which generations of Katy ISD students will benefit,” said Chris Crockett, Katy ISD Education Foundation Board President. “BP’s contribution will provide Katy ISD teachers with countless opportunities to bring extraordinary classroom experiences to their students.” BP, which has a long standing relationship with Katy ISD through the Cinco Ranch High School FIRST Robotics Program, Junior Achievement and other programs, is eager to deepen their support through the BP STEM Grant Program. “BP is thrilled to support an innovative program that will provide Katy ISD teachers additional resources they need to continue inspiring their students,” said Mike Zanghi, BP Vice President for Wells, Gulf of Mexico. “This donation reaffirms BP’s commitment to STEM education and to the communities in which we live and operate.” The Katy ISD Education Foundation launched its second annual Inspiring Imagination teacher grant cycle Dec. 1st. All Katy ISD educators directly involved in classroom instruction will be invited to apply. Last year, in its inaugural grant cycle, the foundation awarded more than $88,000 to 117 Katy ISD teachers for inspiring, innovative classroom projects to be implemented this school year. To learn more, contact us at 281396-6031 or visit www.katyisdeducationfoundation.org. About the Katy ISD Education Foundation The Katy ISD Education Foundation unites people and companies with big hearts and a big belief in our children and teachers to provide unprecedented opportunities for both. The Katy ISD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit for which contributions are deductible to the extent allowed by law.

CHRISTIN VOGEL EARNS GIRL SCOUT GOLD AWARD

Girl Scout Ambassador Christin Vogel recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award a girl scout can achieve. Less than five percent of girls who join Girl Scouts earn this recognition. Thousands of squirrels and swamp rabbits are injured yearly due to natural causes such as storms and diseases, as well as animal attacks and human interaction. Christin’s project addressed the issue of providing shelter for squirrels and swamp rabbits while they recover from injuries. Christin and her volunteers built squirrel boxes and swamp rabbit boxes to donate to the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center rehabilitates wounded animals with the intent to release back into the wild. The shelters that were built will be placed in their natural habitats and the squirrels and swamp rabbits will use these temporary shelters until they are once again fully adapted to the wild and can live efficiently on their own. Christin also conducted educational workshops at local libraries and informed people about how the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center takes in harmed animals and helps them recover strength, confidence and their natural habits. She also described signs of an injured animal and discussed what to do if an animal does become injured and how to avoid harming wild animals. Christin demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, community involvement, time management and personal development in order to carry out her Gold Award project. As an active member of Girl Scouts for 9 years, Christin has also earned her Bronze and Silver Awards. Christin is currently a Junior at Cinco Ranch High School.

Residents are reminded that whenever they decide to make any change to their property that requires submittal of a Request for Home Improvement form, (a copy, plus instructions for completion are included in this newsletter and on the Association’s web site), that THEY are responsible for submitting this form and obtaining the necessary approval. This is still the case if the work is to be performed by a contractor. If they have a contractor who claims they will submit the form, it is still the resident’s responsibility, prior to the commencement of any work on the improvement, to call PCMI to verify that the contractor actually did file a request and that approval has been obtained. The resident does not have permission to undertake any changes until they verify it with PCMI themselves.
