Park Naming Ceremony for Harold Russell Joseph Jr
On Thursday August 18, 2022, the park bounded by Radcliff and Springfield Ridge Dr (formerly Park at Pine Mills) in the Pine Mill community was dedicated the “Harold Russell Joseph Jr Park. “
Mr. Joseph is a longtime resident of the Cinco community. As a member of the various municipal Utilities Boards in Cinco and an engineer tasked with Cinco Ranch 2 development, his influence assisted in the establishment in developing a community where we feel safe and proud. Mr. Joseph retire from the board after 40 plus years of service to the Cinco area. Over the years he possessed a common passion dedicated to utilizing MUD funding to improved or maintain Cinco Ranch 2 as a premier residential and business location in the Houston area, the state of Texas and nationally. In January 2022, the board approved the dedication of the park to recognize his contribution as a fitting tribute to his commitment to Cinco Ranch 2.
While the park was already established as a community gathering area for families and teams, the naming of this parks and other in our community creates character and focus to our park facilities and amenities. During the dedication ceremony several of Russell’s family members and colleagues spoke to Russell commemorating this dedication. Russell’s wife and son welcomed that he was being recognized while living to hear that his commitment was appreciated. Larry Peterson, a former colleague, current MUD board member and friend stated, Russell was instrumental in the development and work to lay the infrastructure of Cinco Ranch 2. Speakers emphasized that our parks aim to bring community members especially those living in or near these neighborhoods together. Now they no longer have to say, “let’s meet at the park down by Springfield drive,” they can say “let us meet at “Joseph Park.”
Thank you, Russell, for the myriad hours and thoughts you put into our community.

As I drive around our residential development the signs that spring has arrived are seen everywhere. The flowers and plants are all blooming in full colors and our neighbors are hard at work repairing winter damage to their yards and flower beds! The Texas Landscape Group has been hard at work; repairing infrastructure, installing spring plantings, and taking care of sod in the entrances and our common areas. Everything is really looking inviting!
The highlights of the April 20, 2022, Board of Directors Meeting are as follows:

Property Management Company (PMC): The Board was pleased to announce that a Property Management Agreement covering Cinco Ranch II was executed on April 20, 2022, with RealManage, LLC, which does business as GrandManors of Texas. The agreement is effective on July 1, 2022, to align with the June 30, 2022 expiration
of the current Property Management Agreement. The transition to GrandManors will begin immediately; however, C.I.A. Services will continue to manage our Community until June 30th. C.I.A. Services has been a fantastic partner to the Association since 2008 and their hard work and service over this timeframe are greatly appreciated by the Board and the Association. RealManage was established in 2004 in Austin, Texas, currently operates throughout the United States, and is considered one of the top residential management companies in the country. Their corporate culture was a significant driver in the Board selection as they strive to provide: comprehensive and innovative Community solutions, performance measurement and improvement of physical and “living’ assets, a dedicated onsite staff, innovative IT/ Financial systems, preventative maintenance, and asset controls. Further information on RealManage can be found on their website at: www.realmange.com, and GoodManors will be reaching out to the Association Homeowners with information, contact details, and relevant information in the very near future.
The GrandManors division of RealManage was launched in 2015 and provides management services to large communities like ours that include many amenities and are lifestyle-orientated. In our case, there will be an initial on-site staff of nine, including a General Manager, Community Manager, Landscape Manager, and Maintenance Manager. This on-site staff will be located at the Lake House and our current Field Maintenance Office on Water Plant Road. The structure of the new Property Management Agreement should allow the Association to maintain costs within the current budget, and it is expected that additional savings will be realized in the
future. There will be some costs associated with the transition, but they should be minimal including updating our internet service and office spaces at the Lake House and the Field Office. Most of these changes would need to be made, even if a change in a new PMC did not occur.
Winter Storm Uri Insurance Claim: After a very long road, and with great effort by Kimberly Cowart and others, the insurance claim for freeze damages to the  Community assets, including the Ashfield Gardens has been closed and the funds due to the Association have been received.
FM 1463 Land Acquisition: This is another long-term project that has been brought to closure. All of the land to be acquired by TXDoT for the widening of FM 1463, which is known at this time, has been completed. From an original offer by the State of approximately $1.1 million, the team was able to secure total compensation to the Association of over $1.6 million, after the costs related to our legal consultant. Hugh kudos to this team and their fine efforts!
I hope that this captures the highlights of the meeting for those members who may have not been able to attend the April 20, 2022 meeting.

Brett Butterfield, Vice-President
on behalf of Donnie Loubiere

Bicycle Safety in Cinco Ranch II
According to the Texas DOT bicyclist fatalities from traffic crashes are on the rise in Texas. In 2020, there were 2,173 traffic crashes involving bicyclists in Texas and the greatest number of traffic crashes involving a bicyclist and bicyclist fatalities occurred in the early evening.
Did you know bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers and can also be fined for violating traffic laws? Bicyclists must obey all traffic signs and signals, including red lights and stop signs, ride in the same direction as traffic, use hand signals when turning or stopping, and yield the right of way. Cyclists must also have a white light on the front and a red light or reflector on the back of their bike when riding at night. Sidewalk riding is generally prohibited. Cyclists may utilize paths for bicyclists that have been provided adjacent to the road.
Some quick tips:
  • Wear a properly fitted helmet.
  • Check the brakes and tires of your bicycle before riding.
  • Wear light colors to make it easier for drivers to see you.
  • Stay alert and put away electronic devices. Pay attention to lane markers.
  • Don't ride between vehicles.
  • Cross at intersections. Remember to get off your bike and walk when crossing at intersections. 
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing.
  • Never attempt to cross a multi-lane highway.
  • Always have one hand on the handlebars and remember no bicycle may have more than one rider per saddle.
  • Use proper hand signals: For a left turn, stretch your left arm to the left. For a right turn, stretch your right arm to the right. For a stop, hold your left elbow out, arm downward, with palm facing behind you.

Please do not feed the ducks. In the wild, a particular lake or pond habitat can sustain a certain number of ducks and/or geese – there is a maximum number of individuals that can successfully reside there indefinitely, with enough food, water, and shelter. This “carrying capacity” of the habitat can be artificially increased when supplemental food is added. Overcrowded habitats also are prime territories for disease outbreaks; there have been numerous outbreaks of botulism, avian cholera, duck plague (duck enteritis virus), and aspergillosis (fungal infection). For areas with high volumes of supplemental feeding, it’s also quite common for the unconsumed, leftover food to attract scavengers, including raccoons, opossums, and rats. Dense populations of these scavengers bring the potential for further disease outbreaks, including zoonotic diseases that are transmissible to humans.

Routine roof repair and periodic maintenance are both essential when it comes to maintaining your home’s structural integrity. Your house’s roof protects you and your loved ones from the harsh elements outside and keeps everybody safe and comfy.
If your roof is suffering from poor design or leaks, it can cause costly collateral damage, such as water runoffs inside of your home, erosion of your building’s foundation, paint and furnishing damages, sagging, and much more.
Remember to follow the HOA guidelines on shingle replacement:
1. All buildings shall be roofed with composition shingles unless otherwise approved in writing by the Design Review Committee. Wood shingles are specifically prohibited for safety reasons.
2. Composition shingles must weigh at least 23 0 pounds per square and have a stated warranty of at least 25 years. Shingles must have a shadow profile design.
Three-tab shingles are specifically prohibited except for use as a starter and cap rows.
3. Roof shingles must be weathered wood, dark brown or dark gray tones. All other colors must be reviewed by the Design Review Committee.
4. Roof overlays are not allowed. Prior to roofing, all existing materials must be removed down to clean decking. Any damaged or deteriorated decking must be
5. Ridge vents are encouraged, to improve ventilation, reduce attic temperature and reduce cooling costs, but are not required.
6. All roof protrusions, such as vents, roof jacks, must be painted to match the shingles.
7. Subject to Section 8 below and with advance written approval from the Cinco Ranch Residential Association II, Inc., an owner may install shingles ("Alternative Shingles") which are designed primarily to: 
     a. be wind and hail resistant; or
     b. provide heating or cooling efficiencies greater than traditional composition shingles; or
     c. provide solar energy capture capabilities.
8. Once installed, any such Alternative Shingles must:
     a. resemble the shingles used or authorized to be used on other structures within the Association; and
     b. be more durable than and of equal or superior quality to the shingles used or authorized to be used on other structures within the Association; and
     c. match the aesthetics of properties surrounding the owner's property.
Additional information on Home Improvement Requests can be located here. Remember to submit your HIR and wait for approval BEFORE you start work.
