We're Making Updates To The Pool!
The HOA is hard at work getting the pool in great shape for next summer! This year we focused on improving the deck to make it safe, shiny and secure for residents. In 2020 we will add a new bottom and skimmers. The pool has never had this work done and it was needed! Below are pictures of the current status. We'll post more pictures as the work progresses!

Block Party Trailer Program Launched in Sugar Land
Residents now have access to a trailer full of supplies to make hosting a neighborhood block party easy and enjoyable. “The Sugar Cube,” a block party trailer intended to help foster neighborhood relationships, was created foster neighborhood relationships and as a result of a efforts to streamline the city’s special events offerings and avoid duplication of effort by leveraging existing event opportunities already occurring within neighborhoods. “The Sugar Cube provides a convenient way to bring people together where they live in hopes of finding similarities that will bring them closer together. Neighbors who connect with one another only strengthen our community,” said Community Engagement Manager Carrie Paxton-Lamke. Residents can reserve The Sugar Cube free of charge by completing an online form after their community group, homeowners’ or neighborhood association completes a short registration process with the City. “In our increasingly digital world, we often lack the opportunity to get to know our neighbors face-to-face,” said Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Kimberly Terrell, “Our goal is that The Sugar Cube inspires our neighborhoods to come outside, meet one another and recreate a National Night Out-style block party any weekend of the year.” To learn more about The Sugar Cube or to make a reservation, visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/sugarcube.

Removing Mold From Your Home's Exterior: While there’s always the option of paying for someone to pressure-wash your home to remove mold, there is a fairly effective home remedy you can use to get rid of this problem. Mix the following household ingredients in a garden sprayer, which you can get for under $20, or find in your garage.
1/3 cup powdered laundry detergent
2/3 powdered household cleaner
1 quart liquid laundry bleach
1 gallon of water
Double-check to ensure children and pets aren’t in the area, and wear some sort of safety mask. You may also want to cover your plants or other vegetation around the base of your home with drop cloths. These ingredients generally aren’t harsh to clean with, but can be dangerous if you are breathing, or ingesting the ingredients. Once you have the solution mixed, you will begin applying it to your siding. One gallon should cover a 10’ X 20’ area or a little further, depending on how liberal you are with it. Once you apply a good coat to your vinyl siding, let it stand for five to ten minutes. After this lapse in time, use your garden hose to rinse the siding off. If you don’t have a garden hose, thoroughly cleanse your garden sprayer and fill it with water to rinse the siding. Depending on the severity of mold, you may need to apply a second or third coat and repeat the steps already covered. Make mold old news and spruce up the exterior of your home!
