What's Going On

Due to an influx of vehicle questions we would like to remind residents of the Declaration of Protective Covenants - specifically page 72 of the document.
Restricted Activities. Unless expressly authorized by, and then subject to such conditions as may be imposed by, the Board, the following activities are prohibited within the Residential Properties, except to the extent undertaken by the Declarant in the course of development:

(a) Parking of "occupant vehicles" on Units in places other than the garage or driveway serving the Unit, or parking of commercial vehicles or equipment, mobile homes, recreational vehicles, golf carts, boats, and other watercraft, trailers, stored vehicles, or inoperable vehicles in places other than enclosed garages.

For purposes of this provision, a vehicle shall be considered an "occupant vehicle" if it is parked on the Unit four or more hours per day, four or more day in any seven-day period. A vehicle shall be considered "in-operable" if it is obviously inoperable or does not have a current operating license. A vehicle shall be considered "stored" if it is put up on blocks or covered with a tarpaulin and remains in such state for 7 consecutive days without prior approval of the Board.

Sweetwater Pools advised that there is a labor shortage that has gotten significantly worse over the past 10 days (this is statewide). As such, the Cinco Ranch II Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to close the Westridge Creek, Rollingwood, and Rosewood pools effective immediately. We are hopeful that with these closures the Lake House pool can remain fully staffed and open weekends until October 17th. The Lake House pool will also be open during the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Westridge Creek Splash Pad is not affected by the pool closures. It will remain open until October 15th. Residents will need an amenity card key to access the splash pad.

The HOA board decided at the August 11th meeting to continue mosquito fogging twice weekly through September 30th. Mosquito fogging in the community occurs between Saturday/Sunday and once midweek around Tuesday/Wednesday. This is done by a contracted company.
Fort Bend County Road & Bridge also fogs for mosquito control within the county. Information on those vehicles can be located here
As a reminder, routinely checking your own property for areas or items that may be holding stagnant water can also help reduce the mosquito population in your area. Residents should use insect repellent whenever they are outdoors and avoid going outside at dusk and dawn when mosquitos are most active.

Delegate Advisory Committee
The “kickoff meeting” for this newly established committee was held on Aug 12.  6 resident volunteers and one Board member attended the discussion on how to run this committee to better serve the community i.e., what should be the goal, tasks right now?  The Committee charter is under development.
You don’t need to be a delegate or alternate to participate on this committee.  If you are interested in attending the discussion of this committee, please contact yuxiajessie2020@outlook.com
Yu (Jessie) Xia (Delegate Advisory Committee)
Safety Committee
The Safety Committee coordinates contract deputies who are hired as additional patrol resources in Cinco Ranch SW.  Your HOA and local MUD Districts fund these contract deputies and meet quarterly to discuss crime trends in our community and special needs for additional patrol resources.  
Richard McLarty (Safety Committee)
Parks & Recreation Committee
The Parks and Recreation Committee needs your feedback.  Would residents like to see a separate bike path around the lakes?   If so, what lakes would you recommend?  Please send your feedback to yuxiajessie2020@outlook.com.  This a great idea, as I have been a walker/runner and I have been a biker and many times there is a conflict on the path.  Feel free to email any other comments and/or feedback that we can share with this committee as they meet monthly.

RIST Committee
Last month’s accomplishments
RIST (Reclaimed Irrigation Sustainability Team) met on July 26th.  Clay Brandenberg, Inframark, reported that the year-to-date savings through June 30th from the Reclaimed Water Project were $320,117.  Of that, $101,157 is irrigation savings to the HOA.  The Cinco Ranch 2 Homeowners Association owns 165 smart irrigation controllers that control the irrigation of 643 acres of landscaping.  These controllers use real-time weather information to automatically control the amount of water used by approximately 5000 irrigation zones.  Jeffery Knight, Mausen Consulting, and David Thurman, Texas Landscape Group, will conduct a test over the next several months to determine the effectiveness of the controllers to operate without any manual adjustments.  The test area will be along Fry Road between Water Plant Road and Cinco Terrace.  The test begins August 10th.
Current month projects
1.       The Irrigation Audit is ongoing and the first complete monthly data was collected.
2.       Work process development and documentation are also ongoing.
3.       Refinement of the member’s monthly reports.

Welcome to our Cinco Ranch II family. We are a community with 6,358 homes with wonderful amenities such as lakes, a clubhouse, pools, scenic walking trails and pickleball/tennis courts. We just know you will grow to love this place.
Our community is divided into 52 sections, each representing a unique neighborhood. Besides becoming personally involved in your community, your interface into the HOA Board of Directors is through a Neighborhood Voting Delegate system where each neighborhood has an elected representative. Neighborhood Delegates are elected every 2 years by their residents. Each year, the 52 voting delegates elect 3 or 4 Board members (7 Board members in total). Your neighborhood Voting Delegate also is tasked with being the voice for you and your neighbors.
Board members are the resident elected strategic team that manage the whole community. We are all volunteers who love our community!
More information can be found in www.mycincoranch.com.
To stay informed, here is some basic information and actions you will need to take:
1.       Register on www.mycincoranch.com, by doing this, you will be able to receive community e-Notes, see community information, receive updates on special events, find your delegate, etc.
2.       Contact us:
C.I.A. Services, Inc.

Email:                 CustomerCare@ciaservices.com
3.       Volunteer opportunities:
We are always looking for volunteers to make our community better!
We have many advisory committees to assist the Board in making decisions including Communications, Beautification, Budget Advisory, Parks and Recreation, and many more.
You may also choose to run for your Neighborhood Voting Delegate position or one of the HOA Board of Director positions to become more involved.
Again, we welcome you and your family to our community and hope you take advantage of our many amenities, but also volunteer and become involved in your Home Owners Association.

Hot Weather Safety Tips
Water Safety
·         Make sure to designate adults in your group as Water Watchers even if a lifeguard is present. Trade being Water Watcher with another adult every 15 mins or so.
·         Floaties, inflatable water wings and water toys are not water safety devices and should never be used for that purpose.
·         Never assume your child is “drown proof” because they have taken swim lessons.
·         Swimming lessons should be on-going, from a well-recognized program with staff that are certified in basic CPR, water rescue and first aid.
·         Most children under the age of five have no fear of water and no concept of death. Water is associated with play.
·         Do you know CPR/First Aid? Maybe you should. Often, bystanders are the first to aid a drowning victim, so learning CPR can help save a life. And once you’re CPR certified, make sure to keep your certification current.
Heat Exposure
·         Stay in a cool, shaded area.
·         Keep yourself hydrated.
·         Wear clothing that's loose and light.
·         Don’t overdo it—work, play, and exercise more lightly than usual.
·         Protect yourself from the sun with shade and sunscreen.
·         Know the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion
Car Safety
·         Always check the vehicle for passengers and pets after parking.
·         Remember that the inside of a parked car can reach up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit within minutes on a 78-degree day, and 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes on a 90-degree day.
If you see a person or animal trapped in a hot car, have the driver paged in the nearby store and/or call 911 immediately.

Each Cinco Ranch II resident can get a free evaluation of their lawn sprinkler system.  When the evaluation is complete, you will receive an online report with recommended repairs or adjustments. You are NOT obligated to make any of the recommended changes, but you might save some water if you do.

Family Hurricane Preparedness
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Where will your family be when disaster strikes? They could be anywhere--at work, at school or in the car. How will you find each other? Will you know if your children are safe?
Families can and do cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Knowing what to do is your responsibility and your best protection.
Emergency Supplies
  • Keep enough supplies in your home to meet your needs for at least three days.
  • Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit with items you may need in an evacuation. This is also known as a Go-Bag.
  • Store these supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers such as backpacks, duffel bags or covered trash containers.
  • Locate the main electric fuse or breaker box, water service main and natural gas main.
  • Teach all responsible family members how and when to turn these utilities off.
  • Keep necessary tools near gas and water shut-off valves.
  • Turn off the utilities only if you suspect the lines are damaged or if you are instructed to do so.
  • If you turn the gas off, you will need a professional to turn it back on.
  • Meet with your neighbors to plan how the neighborhood could work together after a disaster until help arrives.
  • If you're a member of a neighborhood organization, such as a home association or crime watch group, introduce disaster preparedness as a new activity.
  • Know your neighbors' special skills (e.g., medical, technical) and consider how you could help neighbors who have special needs, such as disabled and elderly persons.
  • Make plans for child care in case parents can't get home.
  • Inspect your home at least once a year for anything that can move, fall, break or cause a fire.
  • Fix any potential hazards or possible dangers that you find.
  • Evacuate immediately if told to do so
  • Listen to your battery-powered radio and follow the instructions of local emergency officials.
  • Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes.
  • Take your family disaster supplies kit.
  • Lock your home.
  • Use travel routes specified by local authorities; don't use shortcuts because certain areas may be impassable or dangerous.
  • If you're sure you have time: Shut off water, gas and electricity before leaving, if instructed to do so.
  • Post a note telling others when you left and where you are going.
  • Make arrangements for your pets.
If Disaster Strikes
  • If disaster strikes, remain calm and patient. Put your plan into action.
  • Check for injuries. Give first aid and get help for seriously injured people.
  • Listen to your battery powered radio for news and instructions
  • Evacuate, if advised to do so. Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes.
  • Check for damage in your home.
  • Use flashlights; do not light matches or turn on electrical switches, if you suspect damage.
  • Check for fires, fire hazards and other household hazards.
  • Sniff for gas leaks, starting at the water heater. If you smell gas or suspect a leak, turn off the main gas valve, open windows, and get everyone outside quickly.
  • Shut off any other damaged utilities.
  • Clean up spilled medicines, bleaches, gasoline and other flammable liquids immediately.
  • Confine or secure your pets.
  • Call your family contact; do not use the telephone again unless it is a life-threatening emergency.
  • Check on your neighbors, especially elderly or disabled persons.
  • Make sure you have an adequate water supply in case service is cut off.
  • Stay away from downed power lines.
